FORMER champion trainer Brian Kan Ping-chee - under pressure after one of his horses failed a dope test 12 days ago - was back in the spotlight yesterday with a treble at Sha Tin, including the $1.25 million Piaget Cup.

Kan has vigorously protested his innocence after Top News returned a small amount of the prohibited stimulant caffeine after racing at Happy Valley on April 21. The horse had passed pre-race drug screening.

Jockey Club sources say the amount of caffeine makes it unlikely to have been a deliberate doping case.

''I know I've done nothing wrong, but it still must be found out how this happened,'' Kan said after Galway (25-1) beat local favourite Quicken Away in the feature race yesterday.

''I don't feel under any pressure because I know I'm innocent.''
