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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
