It's Time to take Action

ACTION Time is worth a bet in tonight's third event on the Happy Valley grass.

He was an improving type throughout last season, eventually scoring over tonight's 1,235-metre course and distance having earlier put in a fine effort when the only one to give the much touted Blaze Of Glory a race over 1,200 metres at Sha Tin.

Marcus roars to record tally

BASIL Marcus reached another milestone in his glittering Hongkong career when he surpassed last season's personal best tally of winners.

His success on David Oughton's Humdinger in the night's fifth and, as it transpired, final event, was the defending champion jockey's 70th winner.

Marshall set to profit from Kinane's exit

CLUB jockey John Marshall looks set for a prolific end to the season with a number of rides coming his way from David Oughton's yard, now that Mick Kinane has returned home to Ireland.

Marshall will also keep the ride on Muhim who could well win again given the ease with which he cut through his rivals in Saturday's seemingly competitive Queen Elizabeth II Cup.
