Honest five-year-old provides much-needed tonic for Lai and Ng

Local rider Eddy Lai Wai-ming and trainer Gary Ng Ting-keung have had something in common all season - finding winners has been like finding hens' teeth but they both burst into double figures yesterday. Ng is having his worst season since he saddled up 12 winners 16 years ago, while Lai's 10 victories now equals his worst recent season in 2004-05.

Voile Rouge can take centre stage

The John Size-trained Voile Rouge may be an unknown on the treacherous all-weather, but he ticks every other box ahead of today's Broadwood Handicap (1,650m) at Sha Tin.

With no trophy race, the Broadwood - which is essentially a Class Two - is the strongest class race of the day and sees Voile Rouge tackle the artificial surface for the first time.

Races don't come much tougher than the Big Wave Bay Handicap (1,200m) that ends tonight's season opener at Happy Valley, but grand old galloper Noble Man should get what he needs to register his first win for two years.
