Ping's griffin to get punters off to flying start

Northern Gold Ball can stamp himself as one of the most exciting staying griffins in training by taking the opening event on Sha Tin which the youngsters look set to dominate.

The highlight is the Centenary Cup, the second leg of the Champion Sprint Series, for which Fairy King Prawn and Best Of The Best are the clear form picks from Charming City and Whytellyou.

Yu mount has Edge in class

There's a race for most horses in Hong Kong providing they drop far enough down the handicap ratings which is why Smooth Edge is strongly fancied to take the second on tonight's Happy Valley programme.

The four-year-old is racing against Class Five opposition for the first time and also has the useful claimer Alex Yu taking three pounds off his back.

Fire Ball shines as TT banker on Sha Tin dirt

Northern Fire Ball looks the way to go in the final leg of tomorrow night's Triple Trio on Sha Tin's mixed dirt and turf card.

The sixth event is on the dirt and while Northern Fire Ball has run plenty of decent races on the grass, his best recent form has been on the artificial surface.

Boss makes banker appeal for Whyte

Universal Boss can defy barrier 14 to run into the placings in the opening leg of tomorrow's Sha Tin Triple Trio.

There's no jackpot on offer but there's still plenty to play for with Universal Boss' recent form making him very much one to keep on your side.

Ping brings Sunrise to boil for TT axis

Sunrisespectacular can continue trainer Wong Tang-ping's brilliant run on the Sha Tin dirt track and looks rock solid banker material in the middle pin to tomorrow night's Triple Trio.

Ping has sent out winner after winner on the dirt, especially this season.

He doesn't train them any differently. Or at least he doesn't appear to.

Wong is Right On time for early joy

Right On looked a winner waiting to happen when making all to take the first of two 1,150-metre barrier trials on the Sha Tin all-weather yesterday morning.

The Wong Tang-ping-trained four-year-old nearly sprang a 30-1 surprise when making his belated racecourse debut and leading everywhere but the line at Sha Tin early last May.

Double joy as Yu continues to make all the right moves

Talented apprentice Alex Yu had his allowance cut to five pounds after booting home a heavily backed, 61-1 double at last night's Happy Valley meeting.

Yu scored both his wins for his new mentor, Wong Tang-ping, and he couldn't have done it in more contrasting fashion.
