There's certainly an English flavour about tonight's Happy Valley meeting and Douglas Whyte, having won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup on Sunday, can now add the St George's Cup to his impressive list of trophy successes. Whyte is riding at the top of his form and has now moved to a two-winner lead over defending champion jockey Basil Marcus in this thrilling, see-sawing battle for the title. The young South African has ridden 73 winners and both he and Marcus are certain to overtake the old mark of 83 winners set by Gary Moore back in the 1979-80 season. They have both streaked clear of all opposition but it would still be a brave man who puts a major bet down on either man. This can, and probably will, go all the way to the wire. Mr Brinker is Whyte's mount in the St George's Cup which is the fourth event on tonight's card and is an entertaining Classes Two and Three, 2,200-metre contest. Whyte, very much the punters' pal, does not ride too many big-priced winners and he shocked all and sundry when Mr Brinker obliged last time at the whopping odds of 39-1. In hindsight, there were more than a few gnashing teeth and wondering why the horse hadn't been put into a bet for something as it has shown a liking for a trip in the past. The slashing win has seen Mr Brinker go up a sizeable 12 points in the ratings but he is essentially still in company which he could dominate over this trip and on this track. Mr Brinker has invariably been seen to advantage around Happy Valley and he only has to run up to that last run to win. There is rather a sameness to the opposition and not too many of them could be said to be in tip-top form. Whyte came from last to win and waiting tactics will almost certainly be applied again, even though the Valley track usually favours front-runners. Mr Brinker won't have it all his own way this time around. Back at the Valley, the Derek Cruz-trained Tea For You, with the admirable Brett Doyle in the saddle, could give plenty of cheek. He ran a very stout race at Sha Tin last time when finishing four lengths behind Casey's Drum, easily doing his best work at the line. He is more effective at Happy Valley and is a course and distance winner. The last run showed that Tea For You is again going the right way and this trophy event has fallen sweetly into his programme. Doyle, who doesn't make many mistakes, can be guaranteed to get the best out of him and Tea For You is going to go close. Quick Speed finished second to Casey's Drum so merits respect, certainly in relation to Tea For You. The Ivan Allan-trained stayer does seem to relish racing as he has been on the go for some time but keeps running solid races. Marcus rides again and Quick Speed is a handy winner over 2,000 metres and the extra distance will not be a problem. Super Goal is campaigning in an easier race and crack South African rider Felix Coetzee takes over from claimer Willie W. Y. Kan on the veteran stayer. He ran well for the young female apprentice last time and in this easier company, must be rated an each-way chance. Supreme Universe is the other logical hope after his searing last-start effort when he flew home for fourth behind Celestial Fortune. He came from the clouds and was only two lengths from the winner in the trophy race. The added trip is in his favour as he has won over the more extreme distances raced over in Hong Kong and Alan Munro will give this race a shake. Lik Rambo is a last-start winner for Bruce Hutchison and Glen Boss and is entitled to respect on that effort. He goes over an extra 400 metres but his breeding suggests he will get it. Adding to the interest in the Paddy Payne-ridden Sensible Choice, who is a hope on his best form and he wasn't that far away in the race won by Celestial Fortune. This is a good contest.
