All we needed was Dick Dastardly in the Mean Machine being chased by Penelope Pitstop and Peter Perfect in his Turbo Terrific, all charging along the outside fence, because last Saturday was the closest we are ever going to get to Wacky Races at Sha Tin. Punters were that perplexed they were praying for more races on the much-maligned all-weather track, just for some certainty.

No value, but Moreira to dominate Challenge

It is hard to go past Joao Moreira as the likely winner of the Jockey Challenge at Sha Tin, even if his odds-on quote doesn't look the greatest value bet.

Moreira is the only rider with a full book of 10 rides, and on what could easily be a wide open day, the Magic Man was installed $1.80 early favourite before firming into $1.60 last night.

Owners' Pride 'will keep improving'

Promising four-year-old Owners' Pride had a little more to do than he had in winning on debut last July but did it in tradesmanlike style to give Tye Angland the first half of his double.

Specialist has 'more up his sleeves'

The irony of Real Specialist's somewhat controversial inclusion in the Derby is that it probably paved the way to the four-year-old's impressive Hong Kong Reunification Cup win yesterday (1,400m) and the gelding's stellar season may not yet be over.
