Chang poised to set win milestone

Trainer Michael Chang Chun-wai is only one win off equalling his 2009-10 season record of 23 winners after a success by Golden Boy on Wednesday night at Happy Valley, and new recruits Oyster and Ka Ka's Prosperity appear to be closing in on victories after two eye-catchin

Bank on Century Super Star for TT delight

Century Super Star has provided trainer Andreas Schutz with half of his four winners this season and is perfectly drawn for a three-peat in the final leg of this Sunday's juicy Triple Trio, which is estimated to reach HK$46 million.

Perfect day for double-happy Ng

It was a case of hello and goodbye as trainer Gary Ng Ting-keung won an early double yesterday, the product of two horses at opposite ends of the racing spectrum. Nine-year-old stallion Perfect Sport has been a fine lower-grade campaigner for his owners and made it his ninth win in Hong Kong when he scrambled home yesterday with his fifth success down the straight 1,000-metre course.

Lai has first and last laugh

Local rider Eddie Lai made bookends of last night's meeting, leading throughout to win the first and last races on the card.

Lai flew the gate in the opening race on debutant Master Ying and never looked like being headed and was again seen at his best in a speed-riding display on Ivan Allan-trained Success Magic in the final race.

Perfect chance for Fun

Perfect Fun looks one of the few standout bets on tonight's tricky Happy Valley card.

The Geoff Lane-trained chestnut had gone firmly into the notebook as a likely Class Four winner prior to his debut in the 1,000-metre Valley dash won by Able Regal at the meeting immediately prior to International Day.

Cruz waiting for Fame And Wealth

It's always encouraging to see a debutant come through his Happy Valley baptism with flying colours and Derek Cruz's three-year-old Fame And Wealth (10-1) fits squarely in that category after a promising third behind Super Fairway in last night's Class Four opener over 1,200 metres.

Cruz's Earth moves smoothly for debut

Why on earth leave Love On Earth out of your bets when he makes his eagerly awaited racecourse debut down the 1,000-metre chute at Sha Tin on Saturday? No reason at all.

Derek Cruz's (right) private purchase griffin has been burning up the work tracks for sometime and yesterday came through another fluent 800-metre hitout in 49.9 seconds under local rider Eddie Lai.

Roberts' Fortune lands Invitation

South African apprentice Ryan Roberts produced a peach of a ride to snatch victory on Natural Fortune in yesterday's Macau Apprentice Jockeys Invitation Cup.

The showpiece 1,800-metre event was run at a furious pace with Stanley coming from off the speed to challenge last and tellingly on the Paul Leung-trained galloper.

Roaring Star cries for banker status

Roaring Star can cope with the ratings rise and justify banker support in the feature Tung Wah Centenary Challenge Cup, the final leg of tomorrow's complex Triple Trio at Sha Tin.

Usually bankers jump out of the page in a couple of the races - they don't always justify that status come the race but at least they look pretty straightforward beforehand.

Ng's sprinter has Monopoly on dirt

Monopoly Senior is one of the first horses to look out for when the entries are published tomorrow for next Wednesday night's meeting on the Sha Tin dirt.

These all-weather fixtures lack any kind of atmosphere and are guaranteed to drive the crowds away from racing further but they do throw up specialist performers who can be followed from one meeting to the next.
