Debonair

Where menswear fares fine

Harvey Nichols held a men's night last month to showcase the finery available in its stylish menswear department. The cocktail evening attracted more than the finely groomed gentlemen crowd, although there was no shortage of debonair lads.

Be Happy, follow the Birthday boy

HAPPY Birthday did us a favour when simply cruising home last time. He is worth a follow-up wager in today's opening Class Six race on a super day's racing at Sha Tin where there is something for everyone. To begin with there are a number of good betting opportunities with the opening, second and sixth events all looking distinctly solveable.

Allan's Quick Action pays off

QUICK Action ended Debonair's unbeaten run in yesterday's feature Chinese Club Challenge Cup - but only after a titanic struggle the length of the Sha Tin straight.

Indeed, connections can take heart from Debonair's defeat. This was his acid test. The first time he'd dipped his toe into Class One waters.

Unbeaten sprinter left in the shadows

BOOM sprinter Debonair set punters a poser in the sixth of eight barrier trials on the grass yesterday. The David Hill-trained son of Zedative has oozed class when dismissing his rivals on each of his four starts to date. But he will be meeting the toughest company soon, some of which he faced in yesterday's trial.

Biancone toasts 'remarkable horse'

QUICKEN Away yesterday underlined that he is ready to defend the Remy X.O. Cup he won so gallantly 12 months ago.

Yesterday, Quicken Away hit the line really strongly under Mick Kinane to beat David Hill's promising young sprinter Debonair by five lengths in a trial run over 1,400 metres on the grass to test the ''cut-away'' rail which operates for the first time on Sunday.
