Declan Murphy

There's life in the old boy yet

HAPPY Valley specialist Conticasta has had a long and fruitful career in Hong Kong and there is still a win left in this hardy nine-year-old who attempts to make it two on end at the city track tonight.

There's life in the old boy yet

HAPPY Valley specialist Conticasta has had a long and fruitful career in Hong Kong and there is still a win left in this hardy nine-year-old who attempts to make it two on end at the city track tonight.

Heavily Armed primed to rub out opposition

LIGHTLY-raced Irish galloper Heavily Armed looks the answer in a tough first leg of the Double Trio at Sha Tin tomorrow night - but be warned, there are many chances in this tough, 1,400-metre trophy race.

The Pearce Memorial Challenge Cup is a regular end-of-season cup contest but there have been few more competitive fields than this one assembled over the past few seasons.

My best Pal looks in Derby frame of mind

MY heart and my head tell me that the Derek Cruz-trained Our Pal (Next Best) can win today's Derby at Sha Tin.

The strapping chestnut son of Bakharoff provided me with my last winner as a full-time jockey after five years riding in the territory.

Murphy opts for class

TOP jockey Declan Murphy, who would dearly love to be riding Our Pal in tomorrow's Hong Kong Derby, may have to settle for the featured STDM Cup at today's Taipa meeting.

Our Pal has touch of class

ONCE upon a time the Hong Kong Classic Trial was of precious little value when assessing the Hong Kong Derby - and it was also something of a jinx race as far as the Blue Riband event on the domestic calendar was concerned.

Our Pal in line to make many friends

THE Classic Trial is the eagerly-awaited highlight on today's card at Sha Tin and I can't oppose one of the most progressive horses I've ever ridden in Hong Kong - Our Pal.

I'm sure I'm not alone in really looking forward to the race in general as well as to Our Pal in particular.

Declan at the double

CHAMPIONSHIP-chasing Declan Murphy had a busy day at work yesterday, notching up another winning Taipa double and then appearing before the Stipendiary Stewards.

The Irish-American ace, whose Taipa strike rate is excellent, could win the jockeys' title despite the fact that he is frequently inactive.

Brothers Cruz to strike in seventh

LIGHTLY-raced Allegresse (Next Best) can bring the brothers Cruz back to the winner's enclosure in this afternoon's seventh event at Sha Tin.

Allegresse returned to form last time out, and with Tony and Derek Cruz recently reunited, looks one to follow.
