'No suggestion of dishonest practice,' says Schreck

Moore sounds warning with a Master stroke

Childs' hands full of future winners

IT was a busy morning at the track yesterday for International Cup-winning jockey Greg Childs. The New Zealander, retained by Neville Begg during his final season in the territory, started the campaign in brilliant form. He is not riding any different, but things have gone a little bit quiet for him in recent meetings and he will be doubly keen to get back among the winners this afternoon.

Old firm combine for Star attraction

WHEN trainer Wong Tang-ping calls on his one-time regular rider Tony Cruz to get aboard it usually means there is more than a hint of a winner in the air, writes Robin Parke.

There was a time when the A. S. Cruz name figured prominently against the majority of Ping's runners, but then came a split and they went their separate ways.

Unlucky run can well be forgiven

DON'T give up on the Gary Ng Ting-keung Mannidear who was all revved up but with no where to go in last night's second event on the Sha Tin grass. Mannidear, always a good trackworker but until his last two starts unable to translate that work into a meaningful racing performance, was trapped full of running on the far rail as Gagne Vite swooped to catch Lucky Sound.

Partners set for success

PUT Success Partners very firmly down in the book of future winners - this one will definitely oblige.

For the second time in as many starts this season, the three-year-old Irish import flew home from a position well back to snatch fifth place. Last night it was in the second event, a Class Four short sprint on equitrack which is not where he will be winning.

Kiwi works magic on Auto-Matching

INTERNATIONAL Cup-winning jockey Greg Childs has made a tremendous start to his first full-time stint in the territory, impressing many good judges with his cool, tactically astute riding. He has banged in three winners from just four meetings and looks to have a few more winners in the locker if yesterday's four trials on the Sha Tin all-weather are anything to go by.

Moore stable's dead-set day out

THEY both thought they'd met defeat and in the end they both triumphed as the Tony Cruz-ridden Makarpura Star and Greg Childs' mount, Survey King, dead-heated in a pulsating finish to yesterday's $3.1 million Champions and Chater Cup at Sha Tin.

Canadian Champ set to come of age

CANADIAN Champ is on the verge of a win and it could come for Greg Childs and leading trainer John Moore in the fifth event at Sha Tin today. Moore, who is probably odds-on to win the title for the fifth time, has brought Canadian Champ along perfectly and the New Zealand three-year-old is poised to strike in a race that is there for the taking.

Opening meeting the best pointer

THE all-weather surface at Sha Tin can make some races a lottery but evidence from the first meeting suggested horses drawn outside and those equipped with pacifiers had the advantage. With only one meeting on the surface, it is impossible to lay down hard and fast rules and the prospect of upsets makes the Triple Trio even more alluring.
