CHAMPIONSHIP challenger Patrick Biancone has had his stable boosted by two handy additions, although they are more likely to play a prominent part in his title ambitions next season. Quality griffin Lyphard's Lad has moved from the stable of David Hill after an excellent run at Sha Tin on Saturday when he finished fifth in the hotly contested juvenile event won by Red Jeans from favourite Certeza. Lyphard's Lad, picked out and bought by Hill, looks a near certainty to be winning races next season, particularly as he will be classified into Class Four. And local trainer Tony P. H. Chan must have blanched when signing the transfer form for another griffin, Stonelion Treasure. The youngster has not shown a lot but does have ability and is likely to blossom under Biancone - as previous Chan-trained horses have done. The most obvious example is Bumper Star. American Star and Daiquiri made the move and were successful earlier this season while the Gallic expertise has also worked with Free Spirit. Leading trainer John Moore, odds-on to win the championship, has lost Class One sprinter Mount Hansen but is unlikely to be worried. The horse bled at his last outing and is clearly a risk. Two horses were retired yesterday with Lawrie Fownes losing Good As Gold and problem-plagued Victory And Glory, with Peter Tse Yan-sid, finally reaching the end of the road.
