ESC Sequences

Ali G does it again to an unsuspecting personality; music of a decidedly mixed and even Asimovian nature; bikes from hell that will be heaven for some; and fountains of money, literally. All these sites and nothing off-colour. How amazing is that?

Noisy fountain

The Admiralty Garden situated in the centre of the cement forest that is Admiralty, near the bus depot, is meant to be a place where white collar workers can relax.

However, one-third of the space is taken up by a fountain.

The amount of noise created by the fountain and the bus depot make it virtually impossible to stay in the garden for more than 10 minutes.

Beauty contest sullies Club

The best thing that can be said about the Hong Kong Jockey Club vets' failure, once again, to protect the betting public is that in Saturday's case with the heavily backed Beauty Fountain, it was so absolute, so cavalier and so transparently the wrong thing to do that action will have to be taken to minimise a chance of a recurrence.

Fountain to flow for Wong

Beauty Fountain can benefit from the 10 pounds he receives from All Satisfy to take tonight's sixth event on Sha Tin's mixed dirt and grass card.

New Year duo hit right note

Golden Choice and Beauty Fountain appear two of the better bets at Sha Tin's Lunar New Year meeting, which sees another mouth-watering Triple Trio jackpot of $28.37 million.

Golden Choice contests the sixth event, which concludes the TT, and as well as a decent win and place wager, he could be worth taking as the banker in this final leg to the world's best bet.
