EXCITING stayer Glamorous Palace (3-1) notched a hat-trick of wins with a decisive success in the final event at Sha Tin yesterday. Trainer Patrick Biancone was understandably delighted with the winning effort of the three-year-old American-bred private purchase griffin who could be really going places locally. 'He has kept on improving and this was a very strong win. We were helped by the barrier draw because Eric [Legrix] was always going to be able to have him on the pace which is a help on this track. 'This was a test for him because it was tougher company but he has kept finding enough in his other races and he did it again today,' said Biancone. The popular Legrix has had a first-rate season to date and was beaming after the success. 'He is a good one to ride because he will give you what he has. We were in a good position and I always had plenty of horse underneath me,' said Legrix. It wasn't a great day for Irish ace Mick Kinane but Legitimate (9-1) ran encouragingly to take second place with a very strong finish. 'The winner was pretty smart so I don't know if I would have got to him but my fellow was hanging like a gate and that's no help. 'When he did get moving he went to the line strongly. But you would have to be impressed by the winner,' said Kinane. The disappointment of the Class Two, 1,900-metre event was evens favourite Super Missile. It was the only blot on a great day for David Hayes who has moved to joint top of the trainers' table. South African ace Basil Marcus was following the winner and going well but elected to pursue a different path in the straight - and that helped bring about his undoing. He found himself on the outside of Seattle Pride who was rolling out, possibly under pressure, and the subsequent bumping unbalanced Super Missile. Given the authority of the winning effort, it is unlikely that Super Missile would have won but certainly it might have developed into an interesting quinella battle. Planet (80-1) turned the form-book upside down to finish third.
