Mixed feelings about turnover

The Jockey Club wasn't crowing from the rooftops about the turnover at yesterday's predominantly all-weather meeting but the result was not regarded as a defeat either.

The programme was unusual for having seven of the 10 events on the all-weather track but executive director of racing Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges said turnover 'was about the same as a Happy Valley Saturday'.

Punters' cash pouring in on Socrates

Early punters have put their faith in a couple of expensive gallopers to put the record straight at Sha Tin this afternoon.

Premier making plenty of progress

Trainer Paul O'Sullivan won both all-weather trials at Sha Tin yesterday and, judging on the manner in which Premier Burg won the second heat over 1,050 metres he can expect a similar result when he first appears this season.
