Dual Derby rides land Ives in strife
ENGLISH ace Tony Ives, declared to ride two horses in Sunday's Macau Derby, now has no ride in the race and is to appear at a Tony Cruz saw both sides of racing at Happy Valley last night. He rode a double to take him to 50 winners for the season but was then lucky to escape injury in the fifth when thrown from his mount, Rare Encounter. There was also yet another winner from Ivan Allan, the former multiple champion trainer of Malaysia and Singapore who is making such a profound impact on the local scene. He was on the mark with Insider in the second after which he revealed that defending champion jockey Basil Marcus can be expected to ride a number of his horses in the future providing they do not clash with the South African's commitments to trainer David Hill. Allan stressed that at this stage he has no plans for a stable jockey next season.
