French ace Eric Legrix lit up a dismal night on the Sha Tin all-weather surface with a magnificent, career-best five winners that included four for beaming retaining trainer Patrick Biancone. The final winner came up in the last stride in the final event when Lucky Charm (7-2 favourite) just ran down Northern Fire Ball to take the Class Two nightcap. 'I have never had five winners in my life before. This is unbelievable for me and I am really thankful to my boss, Patrick Biancone, because he has prepared them so well. This was wonderful,' said an ecstatic, dirt-spattered Legrix. There was only one mild blot on an unforgettable night for Legrix - his wife, claimer Sheri P.W. Kong, was not there to share it with him. It was to have been the first time they had ridden against each other in races since the Jockey Club's controversial ban was lifted, but Sheri was indisposed and stayed at home. 'She was quite sick last night and she could not ride. It was very disappointing as this was to be our first race meeting riding against each other since the ban was lifted. Now we must wait, but she has been watching me at home and I know she is much better,' said Legrix. Legrix was in unstoppable form and brought home Sunny Graham (3-1 favourite) in the opener, brilliant Supernova (9-2) in the second event, outsider Beijing Star (12-1) in the featured Lusitano Challenge Cup and Just Perfect (10-1) - on whom he produced a superb ride - in the fifth race and, finally, Lucky Charm. Biancone's quartet - the last four of Legrix's haul - leapfrogged him to joint third place in the trainers' championship with 25 for the season to date. 'I am very pleased for the stable and for Eric. Supernova was probably the one that was a bit special as it was his fourth win on end. That is not easy and really he did not seem to have to do it so hard tonight,' he said. Legrix's winning run began in the opening event when controversial Sunny Graham obliged. The dreary conditions could conceivably have matched the mood of the stipendiary stewards' panel, who came under sustained criticism for their handling of an inquiry into the horse's last run. On that occasion, at odds of 88-1, Sunny Graham and jockey Victor C.F. Chan plus then-trainer Andy T.W. Leung, were involved in a running and riding inquiry. The horse had hit the line full of running and demonstrably looking in tip-top shape. A report the next day suggested otherwise and no action was taken by the stewards. Owner Lam Ching-chee switched the horse to Francis K.W. Lui and Legrix was on board last night for a win that suggests - as several observers already knew - that this one is a lot better than Class Four. Sunny Graham was not suited by the 1,150-metre dash and was in the wake as they settled but under vigorous riding from Legrix made ground steadily. As they entered the final stages, Sunny Graham unleashed a withering finish burst that carried him clear of Plentiful Harvest (6-1) to score by a neck. It was Legrix and Biancone to the fore in the second with Supernova claiming the night's top equine honours with a fighting neck win in the Class One, 1,650-metre event. Legrix brought up the treble and Biancone a winning double with Beijing Star. The five-year-old has been hard to catch and her form going into the race was patchy. But she has placed on the all-weather surface in the past and came home off a very strong pace set by stablemate Hong Kong Supreme (9-1). Inexperienced claimer Carole W.S. Yu got the sometimes tardy topweight away from the gates and hit the front running. She did set the seven-year-old alight in the middle stages and swung for home with a three-length advantage. But the pace seemed to tell and the strides shortened as a number came into the picture. The telling run came from Legrix on Beijing Star, who cruised through in the falling rain to take the trophy by 2.25 lengths from Toy Symphony (14-1), who came from behind with a stout run under Paddy Payne. Just Perfect summed up the ride of Legrix in the Class Four sprint as he saved ground and poked up along the rails when it looked as if Charming Success (12-1) and debutant Sterling Chance (7-1) might have it between them.
