Oh what a difference the addition of a simple piece of headgear can make.
The annals of turf are dotted with the names of gallopers who have achieved greatness with the assistance of blinkers - one can only speculate on man's own destiny if the same had been applied to a few lesser mortals.31 Oct 1998 - 12:00am
Demon Douglas Whyte can continue the prolific start to his Hong Kong riding stint by scoring on Corollary in tonight's final event at Happy Valley.

THE old and the new were in fine form at a rain-soaked Sha Tin yesterday as trainer Geoff Lane and boom apprentice Francis K. S. Lam notched doubles.

MY best bet is Winning Stallion and he can come good at the third time of asking this season in tonight's third event.

TONY Cruz has done a lot of talking going into the new season, voicing the concern of the local riders over what they feel is the raw deal they get compared to expatriate riders.
