It was a year ago this week that the gelding had a second round of arthroscopic surgery to remove the last of the bone chips floating inside his injured limb and then began a painstaking five-month process of rehabilitation.

Roman Soldier can march up the ratings

Trainer Dennis Yip Chor-hong was celebrating Go Baby Go's success in the Victoria Racing Club Trophy over the Sha Tin straight, but he must have been glowing about the bright prospects of his second-stringer Roman Soldier in the same event.
