Stick with the youngsters Jade Dynasty and Midas in this afternoon's opening events at Sha Tin and build up a betting bank with which to have a lash at the $26.5 million Triple Trio jackpot. The David Oughton-trained Jade Dynasty had created a very favourable impression in his work prior to needing his racecourse debut when keeping on very strongly to be fifth to Lord Of Warriors over an inadequate 1,200 metres. He then showed the benefit of that experience and a move up in distance to today's 1,400 metres when running a highly creditable third to Lord Of Warriors. That race was run in a very smart Topspeed figure and the two that beat Jade Dynasty home look potentially smart customers. Lord Of Warriors is probably the best griffin seen so far and runner-up Good Spirit had worked and trialled exceptionally well prior to debut. Since that run Jade Dynasty has been kept ticking over by Oughton and he shouldn't be too short a price as both John Moore's Smartlord and David Hayes' Triumphant Feeling are set to come in for some good support. Smartlord is improving and won well last time and clearly has to be a quinella leg. Triumphant Feeling has worked promisingly for Hayes who has such a brilliant record with his griffins who, like Patrick Biancone's, invariably know their job first time out. Jewel Of Kentucky, who has improved on the work tracks recently, looks best of the others. The Wylie Wong-trained Midas makes his racecourse debut in the day's second event, having been for several months one of the most impressive workers in the crop of unraced horses in training. He doesn't face any easy task as this 1,400-metre Class Four contest sees another potentially useful unraced sort in the Francis Lui-trained Universal Winner, while Hayes' once-raced youngster Ovation went firmly into the notebook on debut and has worked well since. These two are definitely worth combining in a triangular quinella with Midas. Chater Sovereign, Nanning Treasure and Sound Lover look the ones for the tierce. But it is Midas who is worth the win bet and the winnings from him could be turned into gold via the Triple Trio. Midas has repeatedly trialled and worked exceptionally well. And his last serious gallop with stablemate and established sprinter Raymondo was something else. Midas was always travelling better than Raymondo in this jump out and it takes a pretty quick animal to do that as Raymondo can really work along in the mornings.
