Plenty of Fortune awaits TT punters

Douglas Whyte got the desired result when he hopped aboard Fortune Together last start and the champion jockey can combine with the Me Tsui Yu-sak-trained galloper to make back-to-back wins in the first leg of tomorrow night's Triple Trio - which is expected to reach HK$9 million - at Happy Valley.

A time to tell

THE TALL, YOUNG woman shivering in a white jacket and high boots opposite the entrance to the Lama Temple in Beijing looks me up and down as I walk towards her. If it wasn't lunchtime and we weren't next to Beijing's biggest Buddhist temple, she might be mistaken for a prostitute. But she isn't selling sex. Instead, she wants to offer me a glimpse into my future.

Race To Honour can make amends for Wong

Dirt-loving Race To Honour can anchor bets in tomorrow's sixth event, the final leg of Sha Tin's Triple Trio which sees a small bonus of just over $4 million carried forward.

Last time out Race To Honour was a certainty beaten when returning to his favourite dirt surface.

Progressive pair can anchor TT onslaught

Courage Star and the appropriately named Fortune Maker look natural bankers for tomorrow's eagerly awaited Sha Tin Triple Trio for which a massive $42 million is carried forward.

These two contest the fourth event, the TT's middle leg, and are going to be very hard to keep out of the placings.

Ho's Competitor holds aces in exotic opener

Prudent punters will keep their powder dry for Saturday's monster $42 million Triple Trio jackpot but for those who cannot wait, tomorrow night's Happy Valley meeting provides another opportunity to cash in on the world's best bet.

There's no carry-over but the game is the same and No Competitor looks as good a banker as any in the opening leg of an extremely tough TT.

Tsang can lift Prodigy to Triple Trio heights

Prodigy can anchor Triple Trio bets in the sixth event on tomorrow night's final Happy Valley meeting of the season.

Appropriately enough, he is to be ridden by likely apprentice champion Henry K. C. Tsang whom trainer Lawrie Fownes has nurtured into a useful rider.

Quiet tactics bring best out of Ho-trained galloper

Chief's Fortune, beaten by the track bias last time, can bounce back and take the fifth event on this afternoon's Sha Tin card.

Trainer Peter Ho has his team in cracking form and most of his best chances are ridden by today's pilot, the leading French jockey Eric Saint-Martin.

Melrose a TT natural

After Sunday's TT exploits, it's party time again at Happy Valley tomorrow night where there is a juicy jackpot of $19.36 million.

The in-form combination of trainer Peter Ho, jockey Eric Saint-Martin and Melrose Star look set to run into the placings in the third event which opens the world's best bet and justify banker status.

Stay Faithful to Allan's youngster

Only one more Triple Trio day before Christmas and the world's most popular bet appears eminently gettable.

It is somewhat ironic in the light of developments this week that the feature event, and the middle leg to the TT, is the Police Cup. Maybe next season the ICAC will be a sponsor.

Chief's Fortune can score over longer trip

The Peter Ho-trained Chief's Fortune (21-1) will be adding to his master's tally before long after a sizzling finishing effort in the Class Four fifth event won by the well-fancied Top Class.

Marcus good value for TT opening leg

Last season's champion jockey, Basil Marcus, is a strong candidate for inclusion in the opening leg of tomorrow's Sha Tin Triple Trio.

Fradd continues to cover himself in glory

THE Robbie Fradd express kept rolling with a winning double for the in-form Club Jockey at Sha Tin yesterday.

Fradd, who forfeited a share of the lead on the jockeys' table after French ace Eric Saint-Martin chalked a treble of his own, scored with veteran Lucky Glory (4.8-1) for Bruce Hutchison and then completed the job atop Derek Cruz's Fortune Maker (11-1).
