And then there was one. Local trainer Me Tsui Yu-sak remained the only trainer yet to get off the mark for the new season after six meetings after John Size's poor start ended with Glory Of India yesterday. The second half of Jeff Lloyd's double, Glory Of India had been knocked senseless at the 200 metres first time out this season, but relished a good tempo and clear running to scrape home in the Chongqing Handicap (1,600 metres). 'He was stretched to go the tempo the whole race but he just kept coming,' said Lloyd. 'There's no doubt he's going to appreciate further than the mile, but John hasn't had the chance to get him up in distance yet.' Few would have bet on Size and Tsui - respectively third and seventh in last season's championship - to be the last two trainers to win a race, especially as the pair led the way in the number of runners for the new term before yesterday's card. Tsui is now batting 49 and zip.
