A WINNER, is a winner is a winner - no matter what grade that success comes, writes Lawrence Wadey. The important thing is the price and so often the value is to be found right down in the bottom grade. The Lam Hung-fie-trained Happy Birthday is one to keep firmly in mind in this grade as his work showed at Sha Tin yesterday morning. He's been in good form for some time on the work tracks and took that into his races last time when looking all over the winner of the opening race at the new Happy Valley track only to fail to see out the mile. The result was he was caught right on the line by Jungle Deer and Karaoke who dead-heated with Happy Birthday back in third, shaping as if a certain future winner around 1,400 metres. Yesterday he underlined those impressions with a most fluent 1,200-metre hitout in one minute 17.0 seconds under apprentice Ricky C.K. Chung. Wylie Wong has been having a tough time of things with just that success from Jungle Deer to his name. A couple of his caught the eye yesterday morning, notably Lucky Glory who had far too much pace for A Secret Weapon who was ridden by Australian Michael Clarke. Fairview Star showed more zip in his work for Wong and could do something in a bad staying event. Meanwhile, local jockey Rambo Tse was only bruised and shaken after an ugly trackwork fall from the Andy Leung-trained The Lobbos yesterday morning. The unraced private purchase griffin had already thrown Tse once and he remounted only to be thrown again when the Australian bred bolted on to the track. Tse lay motionless before he was stretchered into an ambulance and then taken to hospital where fortunately nothing was found to be broken. As Tse is currently banned for four meetings, starting today, he won't miss out on any rides.
