WYLIE Wong Wai-lit is having his traditionally tardy start to the season - with just one winner from the 30-odd runners he has sent out - but he saddled one yesterday that looks guaranteed to pull his weight in the stable. Time Well (43-1) finished sixth behind Ivan Allan's star-in-the-making, Holy Grail, in what looked a thin Class Three dash over 1,200 metres. It was a run that turned many heads. This was Time Well's fifth career outing and the three-year-old son of Siberian Express out of a Fappiano mare has earned a reputation for being unco-operative at the barriers. English ace Alan Munro kept him relatively relaxed yesterday and, although he jumped slowly, he did seem to gallop more tractably. And the American-bred came home full of running, finishing just three lengths from the winner, suggesting that he will benefit from a move up in distance and a return to the more spacious Sha Tin. He is not a claimer's ride, but Time Well has plenty of ability and will be winning in better company than Class Three.
