TRAINER Tony P. H. Chan could do with a winner after a relatively lean start to his new career.

He has mustered just three winners to date but must have a good chance of adding to that tally with Master Glory who benefited considerably from the move up in distance to flash home for fourth in yesterday's opening event.

Further improvement can be expected when he tackles a mile, particularly if he finds a combined Classes Five and Six event.

John Moore claimed a timely win with See The King yesterday and must have high hopes of his young horse, Golden Computer, who also shaped most encouragingly in the first.

He should improve considerably for the run as he was resuming from a protracted absence from racing.

There was plenty to mull over from the first race won so easily by Star Of Marble as Ivan Allan's So Easy was also noted putting in by far his best performance to date.

He had improved considerably in his work and the first-time application of blinkers, which he wears in his work, made a fair bit of difference, too.

Fortune Duke ran much better than his finishing position suggests in the final event won by E Treasure.

Fortune Duke has been working well all season and went strongly to the line yesterday suggesting he will win a staying event in the not too distant future.
