HIS enforced absence from the saddle has obviously whetted Wendyll Woods' appetite for winners as he proved again at Sha Tin yesterday with a polished double.

Begg so close to fairytale

Veteran Australian handler Neville Begg all but enjoyed a fairytale end to his six years in the territory when his Local Colour was run down close home by Kwacha in yesterday's opening event.

Begg team set for a fitting farewell

VETERAN handler Neville Begg bows out at the end of the season and from the way his team shaped at yesterday morning's Sha Tin trackwork session he could well go out in a blaze of glory. Begg is first and foremost a horseman and despite this being his final campaign, he has put his horses future benefit and development a long way in front of his own personal gain.

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.

Winning Partners out of Cup date

THE Remy Martin XO Cup at Sha Tin on Sunday was robbed of much of its glamour yesterday with the news that brilliant sprinter Winning Partners would not run.

Trainer Neville Begg will not declare his International Bowl-winning star this morning as a precautionary move and will aim him for Happy Valley instead.

Punters can look to Begg for value

VETERAN Australian trainer Neville Begg has trained at least one treble during his time in Hong Kong and I am tipping that he repeats the feat on Sha Tin Trophy day. It is probably a rather bold statement and if Begg does succeed, those following the advice will certainly be happy to face their bank manager. He will be even happier to see his customers.

Follow this Boy for a gain

IRISH import Gainsborough's Boy hit some form towards the back end of last season and he may not be too far away from winning a race judging by his effort in the second event last night. Slowly into stride, Gainsborough's Boy looked to have little chance of doing anything at all in the 1,150-metre Class Three event - particularly as the short sprint is not his forte.

Childs sends out timely reminder

GREG Childs began his first full Hong Kong season with a winner - and he's hoping it will remind trainers he is ready, willing and able to land a lot more before next June.

Childs is retained by Neville Begg, who is in his last Hong Kong season, and the yard is far from full with the result that the New Zealand ace could have unwanted time on his hands.

Jockey decision pleases trainer

VETERAN Australian trainer Neville Begg reacted with pleasure last night when informed that he would be permitted to retain a jockey in his final season in Hong Kong.

'That's a real bonus, I am very pleased with the news. It's a little unexpected, too, because I understand that most of the Chinese press were saying that I did not get a permit.

Begg in groove with top double

VETERAN Australian handler Neville Begg bounced back to form with a 100-1 double at Sha Tin yesterday.

Begg scored with the enigmatic Jolly Good Winner in the sixth event and immediately followed up with Diablo - who shares a few character traits with Jolly Good Winner - in the seventh.

Fownes' followers gain heart from Derby hero

THE talented but temperamental Super Fit pulled away from some quality Class One performers to take the first of eight barrier trials run on the grass at Sha Tin yesterday.

Last season's Derby winner, trained by Lawrie Fownes, disputed the lead during the early stages with John Moore's champion sprinter, Happy Money.

Failed objection takes tasty treble from Begg

VETERAN Australian trainer Neville Begg was in double form at Happy Valley last night and it might even have been a treble had a nail-biting double objection gone his way following the sixth event.

Begg's enigmatic eight-year-old Segurado broke through for only the second win of his 37-race career when making most of the running in the opening event for local riders.

Don't let Jewellery slip under your guard

THERE are few certainties in racing, but Irish import Jewellery Star must surely fall into that very slim category.

Trainer Neville Begg took over the training of the Bluebird entire two months ago and his hard work was almost rewarded in the sixth event last night when he finished a fighting second to controversial winner Flying High.

Flurry on cards for Fownes followers

SUPPORTERS of the Lawrie Fownes camp look set for a prolific end to the season given the way a number of them worked yesterday.

Centurion Trophy runner-up China Cruise has trained on particularly well.

He worked like a real quality performer yesterday morning when he toyed with Enthusiasm and he was also noted galloping all over his rivals in a recent trial.

Begg happy with Partners' big race draw

WINNING Partners yesterday drew barrier 10 for his historic attempt at the 16-runner $14 million Yasuda Kinen in Toyko tomorrow.

The International Bowl hero, only the second Hong Kong-based horse to race outside the territory, is reported bright and well by trainer Neville Begg.
