Kan's protege racks up double century

The old boss Brian Kan Ping-chee would certainly have been proud as his protege, Dennis Yip Chor-hong, racked up his 200th winner on yesterday's Sha Tin programme and then advanced to 201 in double-quick time.

Doleuze picks up where he left off

Olivier Doleuze started the New Year as he ended 2001 - with a Sha Tin double - to continue his blistering start to his Hong Kong career. 'It's almost too good to be true,' said the Frenchman, who scored on hot favourite Second Opinion in the third race and followed up on Perfect Victory in the seventh and did not contain his delight with fist-pumping celebrations after the two victories.

DR WIN: Lovely type; set to improve significantly on a couple of eye-catching griffin efforts. Could easily be better than Class Three, never mind current position in Class Four.

MALAYAN PEARL: Solid griffin winner who should progress as moves up in distance.

Good times ahead for Kan

This year's International Sales graduates have been performing with a great deal of promise in their limited careers to date.

The progressive Red Zone and the unraced but exciting Vigoroso emerged as two to follow from yesterday's five-heat trial session down Sha Tin's 1,000-metre chute.

The Bruce Hutchison-trained Red Zone won a couple of races in exciting fashion last season and still appears to be ahead of the handicapper.

Policy query

May I invite the Consul-General for Australia, through these columns, to comment on the case of the refusal to grant a tourist visa to Brian Kan? On the face of it, it seems ridiculous to require a Certificate of No Conviction, for a visit of three days, particularly in view of the relatively minor nature of Mr Kan's case.

Kan going the Right Way towards early success

He's eccentric. He's certainly voluble and former champion trainer Brian Kan is most definitely reliable.

His jockeys will tell you that. So will his owners and so will track-watchers because if it is Monday, it must be Kan.

This is the morning that he likes to send out wave after wave of horses.

Fownes' magic touch to cast Valley spell

ONE of the best systems in racing has been to follow horses moving to the Lawrie Fownes' academy. A change in stable, for whatever reason, generally revitalises a horse. Even some of the most unlikely stable changes pay dividends as was seen on Sunday when Way Ahead, having his first start for Kenny Kam since leaving Brian Kan, simply poodled home.
