Re-classified griffin Tequila Pop can underline Sherie Kong's improvement as a rider by taking the fifth event on Champions and Chater Cup day at Sha Tin this afternoon. It could be a big meeting for Tequila Pop's trainer Patrick Biancone who has a leading chance Benji in the Champions and Chater Cup which is the definitive end-of-season staying championship while he also appears to have Intelligence in tip-top condition for the last. But Benji may just struggle to cope with the admirable Queen Elizabeth II Cup runner-up Privilege in the feature event. Privilege is likely to get the run of the race out in front and will stay every bit of this 2,400-metre trip whereas there has to be a doubt hanging over Benji's ability to be as effective at this Classic trip as he is from a mile to 1,800 metres. Jockey Eric Legrix expressed this very opinion after he'd won the Queen Silver Jubilee Cup on Benji over a mile last time out. Legrix partners Forest Spring for Biancone in the fifth and he has to be a quinella leg with Tequila Pop now that he's up to a mile, having been tapped for speed when third to all-the-way winner Gold Yue Yee over 1,400 metres last time. But there was a very interesting gallop back on May 2 when Forest Spring and Tequila Pop worked together. They weren't hanging around either and at the end of the piece it was hard not to think that Tequila Pop was going the better of the pair. Since then Forest Spring has come out and made that work look something special by going slightly better than Intelligence in a strong piece. And Tequila Pop has been nothing short of brilliant in his work. He looked in superb condition when working all over the progressive Mount Kosciusko and then when trouncing Hong Kong Supreme who had appeared to be coming back to himself. Tequila Pop is a fairly straightforward ride for the improving Kong who should be able to go to the front. Such tactics have paid dividends for her in the past on the likes of Charming Guest and Niagara Falls. Tequila Pop has won two of his four griffin starts and any griffin who is able to defy a seven-pound penalty is potential Class One material, such is the strength in depth of these races. But his best form was almost certainly when conceding seven pounds and running 1.5 lengths second to the subsequent scorer Victory Mount about whom John Moore is already talking in terms of the Derby and saying he's the best griffin he's ever trained. Danetop and Mission Sealed are others for the quinella while God Of Wealth is a good outsider as he had good form in England and has improved in his work while Arrowmint had no luck last time and went into the notebook the start before.
