Whyte set to have another fruitful day
Douglas Whyte bookends the Sha Tin programme today with a pair of odds-on favourites among his strong 10-ride book, and should cruise to Jockey Challenge success.
Whyte has won four of the last five and eight of the last 10 Jockey Challenges and John Size's horses in the first and last events should deliver him maximum points and form the backbone of yet another fruitful day.
Sichuan Express was as short as $1.60 last night in the Yung Shue O Plate, a race for griffins, and should guarantee him points in a seven-horse field.
In the final race of the 11-race meeting, Whyte climbs aboard G-One Winning, who was a touch disappointing last start but is expected to dominate a weak-looking extended-ratings band (85-60) Class Three.
Other strong chances for Whyte are Brothers In Arms, who seems destined to break through soon on the dirt, while O'Halo also appreciates the all-weather track and looks hard to beat.
Other rides for Whyte, who was listed as a $1.60 chance in early market, are All Delight, Euphemism, Spicy Siam, Strathay, Delta Hedge and Flashing Aura.
Olivier Doleuze was rated a $7 second pick, with the best of eight rides a pair of fancied runners from the Richard Gibson yard - Mi Savvy and Beauty King.
