APPRENTICE Eden H. K. Cheung had the most important day of his short career when landing a double at Sha Tin that saw him lose his maximum claim. Cheung won the final race on the former top-class galloper Galway (20-1) who responded brilliantly in the last 100 metres to run down game Aashiq (12-1) in the Class Two, 1,600-metre nightcap. Earlier he had helped long-serving local trainer Wong Tang-ping keep his flickering title hopes alive with Each Own Way (5-2 favourite) in the sixth event. It has been a momentous season for Wong and his stable followers and there have been few days in the campaign to date when they have left the territory's racecourses empty-handed. With little weight on his back and solid recent form for a Class Five, 1,800-metre event, Each Own Way looked a standout in the 12-runner event. Backers had no real worries in the run and young Cheung elected to go for home at the turn and quickly went past Money Fountain (10-1) whose effort petered out. Bottomweight Able Ride (20-1), with Victor C. F. Chan in the saddle, threatened briefly to make it interesting as Each Own Way wandered slightly in the final 200 metres. But the winner was simply too good and Cheung rode him out to score by two lengths from Able Ride with Fit For Royalty (20-1), who has been in good form, running into third. Trainer Wong said: 'We were very confident about him, but I decided on the claim after watching the boy ride in a few races. He is a confident rider and the weight off is still a big advantage in these lower class races. 'I know that I am still in the championship, but it is never something that has bothered me at all. I have some very good and loyal owners in my stable and I want to do the right thing by them and their horses. 'When the horses are ready to win they get their chance and if there are enough of them for me to finish on top then that would be a great bonus. But I honestly don't think it is possible.' There were few in the race who looked capable of taking on the winner, but there was solid support for Zakarad (7-1) and Thunder And Gold (8-1). The latter has front-running form to his credit, but has been out of sorts recently. Under Jimmy K. H. Ting he was in the lead with topweight Beau Geste (45-1) until close to the turn, but then faded out of it. Young Cheung has been given many chances by his master Brian Kan Ping-chee and Galway's success was a credit to both trainer and jockey. The veteran Irish galloper had run a grand race over 1,200 metres at his previous start and has always been better over yesterday's trip. He was suited by the fast pace set by favourite Stellar Express (3-1) and finished over the top of a weakening Aashiq with bottomweight Timah (16-1) running a great race for third.
