FORMER champion trainer John Moore has his team in much better shape with Victory Bomb working just about as well as any of them. The progressive staying type has been noted moving fluently and athletically on several occasions at Sha Tin recently and yesterday he went through his 1,200-metre hit-out in a pleasing one minute, 22.3 seconds under Douglas Whyte. Victory Bomb is engaged to race in the Classes Two and Three 2,000-metre handicap on next Wednesday night's mixed dirt and grass meeting at Sha Tin. The dirt and the turf come alike to this Australian import and he's guaranteed a run in this contest. There are other chances in the race, that's for sure, and Victory Bomb will be up 10 pounds for his last-start success. But the latter half of the season is habitually the time to follow the Moore stable and Victory Bomb looks to be in tip-top condition. He could be worth a solid win-and-place wager, especially with Whyte going all out to wrestle the jockeys' crown from the grasp of defending champion Basil Marcus. In other work yesterday morning, Lawrie Fownes' progressive sort Well Known Supreme was noted clocking 1:21.4 for his 1,200-metre workout under stable apprentice K. C. Tsang. Well Known Supreme needed his most recent outing at the Valley, his first after a spell at Beas River. That run should have brought him along and that is, indeed, the impression from his trackwork. He's in over a mile on the dirt and doesn't look to have struck a particularly inspiring event. Fownes also put a solid piece into his lightly raced Winwin Combination, who could well be worth forgiving for his most recent unplaced effort at Sha Tin, where he had a torrid trip from pillar to post. Wylie Wong's progressive sort Aly Baba enjoyed a solid gallop yesterday under leading English rider Alan Munro, who seems to be coming in for some decent rides for the stable as he was also aboard the exciting Seattle Sun for his barrier trial on Tuesday morning.
