Inexperienced Sharki beats odds to make Millard's day

Trainer Tony Millard started the day $20,000 behind yesterday but promising griffin Sharki redressed the balance with a nail-biting win against the older horses in the seventh event.

Marauding can make a name for himself

Francis Lui Kin-wai's Lucky Marauding is probably better known for being the half-brother to former local champion Fairy King Prawn. But the kid brother may be poised to emerge from the champ's shadow after catching the eye in a very good piece of work on the all-weather track on Thursday morning.

Maranello showing plenty in his work

Rookie trainer Caspar Fownes won both dirt trials at Sha Tin yesterday and indicated there are more winners for this stable on the horizon.

Double helps ease pain for Ho after Angel's poor run

Trainer Peter Ho's Derby hopes for Packing Angel were in shreds after the gelding's unplaced effort yesterday, but he took some comfort in a double from two of his other promising youngsters.

Dashing Duke's one in a million

Lawrie Fownes' rising star, The Duke, powered away to his third straight win last night at Happy Valley and made himself a warm favourite to take away a million-dollar bonus in the process.

Superior return surprises fans - but not Ho

Trainer Peter Ho put it down to freshness and time but punters were floored when Superior Title bounced back from a bleeding attack to win the opening contest at Happy Valley last night. The gelding had been off the scene since he tailed out on the all-weather in October, but many horsemen agree that a horse will usually run well first time up after bleeding.

Chapple-Hyam's Cellini one to note from Valley trials

Peter Chapple-Hyam does not possess a good deal of quality stock in his yard, but the English trainer appears to have a decent prospect in his English import Cellini, who impressed in the first of five barrier trials at Happy Valley yesterday. The son of Efisio went to the line very strongly under Eddie Lai, who settled the powerful chestnut near the rear of the field in the early stages.

Yacht Master geared for treasure hunt over longer trip

Peter Ho's debutant Yacht Master put in one of the most eyecatching performances during the busy holiday period when he finished fourth to Super Team at Happy Valley (race 252). The son of Yachtie looks one to follow after his effort over the minimum trip when he flashed home in good style despite looking seriously in need of the experience and trailing the field for the majority of the race.

Monza King to rule in TT middle leg

Progressive stayer Monza King should provide a safe banker option in the middle pin of the Triple Trio at tomorrow's 10-race mixed meeting at Sha Tin.

Ho to strike again with Master

Fresh from their weekend double, Peter Ho and John Egan can keep the bandwagon rolling at Happy Valley tonight by landing the Wayfoong Centenary Bowl with the highly consistent Classic Master.

Monza can motor to victory

Punters can dive in early today for one of the better bets on the Sha Tin programme by following Peter Ho's promising stayer Monza King in the opening event.

Grandioso looking great on the gallops

Due to the poor weather conditions the two barrier trials scheduled for Sha Tin yesterday were postponed until this morning, and trackwork in general was rather quiet as a result. There were several good pieces of work on Thursday, however, particularly on the riverside gallops.

22 Sep 2001 - 12:00am

Yiu set for a Super evening

Ricky Yiu Poon-fie has only three runners tonight at Happy Valley but all of his trio have leading chances, with the pick of them being former griffin Super Sprint in the fifth event.

Acrobatic performance a clear sign of long-term potential

Peter Chapple-Hyam's Acrobatic gave one of the most eye-catching performances at Sha Tin on Saturday night when finishing a decidedly unlucky runner-up in the final event (race 25), which was narrowly won by Lucky Sabre under a well-judged ride from John Egan.

Ho sees importance of getting off to fast start

Young trainer Peter Ho may not have had his best season ever last term but he still caught enough of the cream to be happy with his year and he plans to be even happier with this one.
