Four-year-old must brush up on his stalls speed after missing kick
Peter Ho Leung reckons Peri Peri Saffron is so relaxed 'a grandma could ride him', but the breakthrough winner might need some remedial barrier work after a worrying trend of missing the start continued. 'We'll try and teach him and run him through the stalls a few times before the season starts,' Ho added. The step up to 1,400m was perfect for Peri Peri Saffron, whose trainer anticipated a future over the mile. Jockey Derek Leung Ka-chun recovered well to have the four-year-old midfield after the tardy start, but took evasive action to get clear rounding the home turn and copped a two-day and HK$60,000 careless-riding penalty. Leung will miss the first two meetings of the 2012-13 season.
