Talented apprentice Alex Yu had his allowance cut to five pounds after booting home a heavily backed, 61-1 double at last night's Happy Valley meeting. Yu scored both his wins for his new mentor, Wong Tang-ping, and he couldn't have done it in more contrasting fashion. The youngster made all in the fifth on Wong's habitual front-runner, Treasure, and then came from almost last on Full Speed Ahead in the final event. Treasure was backed down to 6.4-1, having opened the night at around the 11-1 mark, while Full Speed Ahead paid 9.6-1 after an early evening show of 16-1. Yu has recently moved to Wong after his original master, Stephen Leung, had his licence suspended in the wake of the ICAC raids on racing personalities and alleged illegal bookmakers. 'He's a good boy and I thought he rode those two winners with plenty of commonsense,' said Wong after racing. The double took Yu to 16 career winners and he has learned the lesson handed down to him by the stipendiary stewards earlier in the season when he was given a lengthy suspension for not taking all reasonable and permissible measures on Super Shine at Sha Tin. The stewards tempered justice with mercy on that occasion when charging him under Rule 131 (ii) which only carries a suspension. They have done Yu a big favour by safeguarding his career and he does indeed look one of the best of a very talented group of claimers to have come out of the Beas River apprentice school in the past few seasons. The quality win of the night undoubtedly came from yet another David Hayes-trained newcomer. Hayes has introduced a number of exciting individuals during the course of the season but especially in the last six weeks or so as he has cranked his winner-finding machine into top gear in order to wrest the trainers' title from Ivan Allan's grip. But Milky Way's 5.25-length pulverisation looked as good as any. The two-year-old son of Marauding, backed down to 3.1-1, jumped straight to the front, despite having to be unloaded from the barriers prior to the start, and his rivals, which included the impressive last-start winner, Classic Jester, never saw which way he went. His winning time of one minute, 11.3 was fully two seconds or some 12 lengths faster than Woods Venture won the second event, though he did carry 13 pounds more. 'I'd like to have another look at him this season but it was hard not to be impressed,' smiled Hayes who is now on 41 winners, just one behind Allan. Lawrie Fownes kept himself in the championship hunt with that revitalised win from Woods Venture. Fownes is on the 37 mark while winning jockey Wendyll Woods went passed his goal of 35 winners. Dragon's Pal, a 1,000-metre specialist at the Valley, made all in in the Indian Recreation Club Challenge Cup under a superb ride from Eric Saint-Martin who was at pains to keep away from the rails where the ground might have been slower.
