Mr Gnocchi was the first horse Danny Shum Chap-shing has prepared for respected horse breeder Dr Gene Tsoi Wai-wing, and while he was happy to have the still-maturing three-year-old in the winner's enclosure at just start three, he was also grateful for some advice from his new client.

D Day Super looks rock-solid banker in opening leg of Triple Trio

D Day Super ran well in defeat last time from a wide gate and can go one better tomorrow night.

After a season and a half in the wilderness and in a ratings freefall, D Day Super found a home in the Danny Shum Chap-shing yard and a pet course and distance in the form of Happy Valley's chaotic 1,000m scampers. Now that he is hitting his straps, the five-year-old stands out as a banker in the first leg of the Triple Trio and looking to atone for a narrow last-start defeat.

Pride can force its way into Derby reckoning

Owners' Pride trialled nicely for Zac Purton 10 days ago.

Hei Hei Posh a good bet over pet trip

Danny Shum has got Hei Hei Posh going well this season.

Danny Shum Chap-shing's Hei Hei Posh drops back to his best trip at Happy Valley tomorrow night and can kick-off the Triple Trio in style as a sound banker.

Hei Hei Posh is a winner over 1,800m at both turf tracks, but it was his brave runner-up effort over 2,200m last start that adds some further confidence in a Class Four Handicap.

Don't get carried away by Magic's win, says O'Sullivan

Paul O'Sullivan and Olivier Doleuze savour their win.

Paul O'Sullivan was left pleading a case to the handicapper, looking for leniency when M's Magic is re-assessed this morning - the trainer citing "exceptional circumstances" in the horse's 5½-length Class Five win.

M's Magic had never won in 18 starts - but an impossible to overcome rail and leader bias contributed to one of the biggest winning margins of the season.

Mr Ginger a good remedy for TT fans

Mr Ginger can double in the middle leg at Sha Tin on Sunday.

A kinder draw makes last-start winner and likely improver Mr Ginger the best banker in the middle leg of Sunday's Triple Trio at Sha Tin.

Mr Ginger won impressively first-up, his second start, despite being his own worst enemy, Zac Purton earning every bit of his riding percentage as he nursed the unbalanced four-year-old around the home turn and after straightening.

Danny Shum Chap-shing's Mr Ginger could be feeling ginger today after Purton used some strong arm tactics and wielded the whip to keep the wayward youngster's mind on the job as he wobbled around the turn.

Homework and a touch of local knowledge paid handsome dividends for Danny Shum Chap-shing, as aggressive strategies led to two dominant all-the-way wins for the trainer.

Happy Ceramibo, first-up for the season and the stable, set the tone for the on-pace domination to come, with his jump-and-run effort in the opening event, the slick time of 1.09.47 well under standard for 1,200m.

Wah May Star has class on his side

Wah May Star has been a well-anticipated find this season, with connections doubtless hoping he will be in line for even bigger prizes next term, and the rising star can claim the Hong Kong Reunification Cup (1,400m) today at Sha Tin.
