Try a dash of Tequila over 1,800 metres

Tequila! If you fancy something on Wednesday night you could do a lot worse than a Tequila, a Tequila Pop.

The Patrick Biancone-trained gelding put in an enormous win on the dirt recently and has trialled well again since then on the artificial surface.

Carlsberg's public relations manager Derek Currie will not be a wanted man this weekend. At past Hong Kong Sevens, there have been periodic announcements: 'Derek Currie is wanted at the tournament control office'.

These announcements became more frequent as the day went by.

Storm

GLENN Gale's cynical comment about my accent being nurtured on broken glass (Keeping Posted, May 19) has given me reason to believe that I should send a copy of his unplugged piece to Rod Stewart's agent.

After all, his voice made him millions and this old heart of mine tells me Mr Gale's story could cause a storm in the music industry.

Spin doctor diagnoses golf classic ailment

THE rasping Scottish accent that sounds as if it has been nurtured on broken glass is unmistakable.

Derek Currie, irrepressible spin doctor for Carlsberg, is on the other end of the telephone to inform Keeping Posted that Hong Kong's honour was, indeed, upheld during last weekend's Carlsberg Media Golf Classic held in the Philippines.

Class rise no hurdle to smart Our Pal

DESPITE stepping up in class, Our Pal should give punters a run for their money in the second event this evening.

Trained by Derek Cruz and to be ridden by the very polished Declan Murphy, Our Pal has been a revelation having already greeted the judge three times this season.

Should run for us

FIRST-season import Should Run For Me can record his first win in Hongkong by taking tonight's third event.

Trained by John Moore, the three-year-old has been a model of consistency.

He came third on his most recent outing over 2,200 metres at Sha Tin when Tony Cruz rode him in place of the injured Darren Beadman.

Marcus looking to close the gap

WITH ten meetings to go and lying nine winners behind Tony Cruz, Basil Marcus looks set to pull back some of the deficit with a strong book of rides tonight.

Etoile D'Or, Golden Chance and Classic Warrior could easily land the South African with a winning treble. He also has modest claims with On The Double in the first race and Limelight later on the card.
