DERBY winner Helene Star is set to come back in distance to contest the International Bowl, trainer Patrick Biancone said yesterday. Immediately after Helene Star's Derby triumph, Biancone declined to comment on his preferences for either the 1,800-metre $4.5 million International Cup or the $3.5 million International Bowl run over 1,400 metres on April 18. But yesterday the French trainer said: ''It is 70-30 likely that I will run Helene Star in the Bowl. This is probably the distance he has most chance over at the moment. ''But I won't be making a final decision until I've seen the strength of the local and overseas opposition.'' Biancone went on to add that he was delighted with the way Helene Star had handled his Derby win, considering he had not been trained for the staying event. ''He's come out of the race in terrific shape.'' Biancone also had news on his original Derby contender Charming Talker who was a late withdrawal from the Blue Riband event due to leg trouble. ''We stopped his work in time. I don't think there will be any long-term damage. ''But I can't say when he will be back on the track.'' Meanwhile, trainer Derek Cruz, currently in a four-way tie at the top of the championship table, yesterday lost three horses in a stable switch. Cruz, who has had a tremendous season notching up 24 winners to date, took the loss of Dawn Raid, Futures and Beautiful Star in his stride. ''I can't say it has come as a total surprise. There has been a bit of talk lately and that's the way these things can happen in Hongkong.'' Dawn Raid and Futures have gone to first-season trainer Wylie Wong Wai-lit while unsound Beautiful Star has moved to the stable of Peter Tse Yan-sid.
