It's all about fung shui for on-fire Andy Leung

There was some symmetry in Richard Fourie riding Andy Leung Ting-wah's 400th career winner and a fair bit of fung shui as well, according to the colourful trainer.

Future employment options for King of Class Five

The irrepressible and iridescent Andy Leung Ting-wah was at it again at Happy Valley last night, an unexpected running double of Class Five winners solidifying his position as “King of Class Five” and taking his win total to 399 – the race is now on to get to 400 before his time is up. And then the question is: what will he do when he stops leading in occasional winners at Happy Valley?

Young Happy is a safe bet next time

The Andy Leung Ting-wah-trained Young Happy, who has shaken off soundness issues, looks to be finding his feet with another positive performance at Happy Valley and is on the verge of breaking through.

Pace should ensure Make It's luck changes

Make It (outside) finished second to Happy Homing, despite being hampered by the wayward winner, last time.

Andy Leung Ting-wah's runners aren't generally renowned for their consistency, but Make It hasn't put a hoof wrong this season and, coming off an unlucky course and distance second, a suitably fast pace makes him an enticing banker in the first leg of the Triple Trio at Happy Valley tomorrow night.

The colourful case of racing’s ‘Benjamin Button’

The first fortnight of the season has been a dark time for the rank and file punters – with only three favourites saluting in the 36 races so far – but at least a rare Andy Leung Ting-wah win injected some colour into proceedings, quite literally, on Wednesday night at the Valley.

'Lucky' Leung ups his win tally and edges closer to pass mark

Trainer Andy Leung Ting-wah still has a way to go to reach his benchmark 13 wins for the season, but he did strike a blow with eight-year-old Speedy in the Class Five second event. Sent forward by Howard Cheng Yue-tin to sit outside Gorgeous Life in a modest tempo, Speedy looked beaten a number of times in the sprint home but just kept finding enough to keep his head in front and win at 21-1.

Back to basics for talented but unruly Zezao

Richard Gibson said he was forced to go back to 'square one' with Zezao, as he successfully dropped the talented but hard-to-catch galloper back in trip.

Record fine for trainer Leung

Trainer Andy Leung Ting-wah was fined a record HK$250,000 by stewards yesterday for his role in a messy syndicate dispute, but avoided a more serious charge on the same matter and another penalty in a separate inquiry into the handling of one of his runners.

Speedy trainer closes in on Club's benchmark performance

Trainer Andy Leung Ting-wah has missed the Jockey Club's benchmark performance figure of 13 wins for the season only once in his career and a second successive win with Class Five Speedy sees him wearing that target down again. Leung had only 10 wins in the 2004-05 term, but that was the only glitch in 15 seasons.

Trainer improves strike rate with double

A red-letter day for Andy Leung Ting-wah helped the trainer make a lie of his 2.2 per cent season strike rate as he recorded a double from just three runners. Leung took his season tally to seven with the pair - which included wins from the perennially disappointing Polygold and Longwah Rising - and went someway to improving his dismal strike rate.

With Size firepower, Whyte holds all the aces

Douglas Whyte and Brett Prebble are sure to figure prominently at today's Chinese New Year meeting and should go head to head in the Jockey Challenge, but Whyte ($2.15) looks to have a small enough advantage to claim the final honours at Sha Tin.

Stewards hand new year 'bonus' to relieved Lloyd

A double to jockey Jeff Lloyd wasn't the only piece of luck for the South African - with the jockey successfully negotiating himself out of a careless riding suspension with stewards who downgraded their charge to a severe reprimand.

Size still to get on the scoreboard

Most trainers have now managed to get off the mark for the season with five of them doing it yesterday. Reigning champion Caspar Fownes started his score ticking with style, leading in a double, while Paul O'Sullivan, Sean Woods, Andy Leung Ting-wah and Derek Cruz all struck their first blows for the new season on the card.
