It's been a long time between drinks for troubled seven-year-old

Andreas Schutz finally got Istide back into the winner's enclosure after two years without success, but the trainer believes the seven-year-old's back problems will continue to limit his performances. Istide fought back under a nice ride from Keith Yeung Ming-lun to beat Champion Mount in a Class Four over 1,600m, the horse's first win since May 23, 2010.

Most trainers just want their horses to relax in the parade ring, but Andreas Schutz would love to see Empire City rev-up a little more pre-race. The five-year-old got a good gate and a nice ride from Umberto Rispoli helped produce a 35-1 upset, punters backing the horse in from as much as 50-1.

Dropping from Group One to Class One, Same World can follow up his barnstorming performance in the Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby and stands out as a banker in the middle pin of tomorrow night's Triple Trio at Happy Valley, which is expected to reach HK$6 million.

Woods rails at stable noise pollution

Trainer Sean Woods has 'written off' this season because of noise from a construction site next to his stables, which he says has sparked an exodus of owners from his yard and caused him to lose all confidence in his runners.
