Poor showing in Melbourne leaves Moore and Beadman perplexed

The career of former Hong Kong-based sprinter Happy Zero is in limbo after his second-last to boom three-year-old Sepoy in Melbourne on Friday night. John Moore, who hopes to welcome the gelding back to his yard later this season if he strikes form under the Hawkes family, made the trip to Moonee Valley with stable rider Darren Beadman and both came away non-plussed. 'It was a lacklustre run and John Hawkes couldn't put his finger on a reason for the run,' Moore said. 'They said he went home and ate up. Maybe something will come to light in the next couple of days that might explain it.' Happy Zero is likely to have his next race at Flemington, as Hawkes tries to gain an invitation to the Hong Kong Sprint in December.
