With only a handful of griffin contests left this term it could be wise to keep tabs on two that flashed home late in last night's juvenile opener. Zippalanda (64-1) and Bayview King (90-1) were friendless in the market but defied public expectations by flashing home to finish third and fourth respectively behind yet another David Hayes-prepared griffin winner, Divine Prospect. The first mentioned had done plenty of work for trainer Ivan Allan since a dismal debut effort course and distance and he went to the line strongly for Felix Coetzee after being beaten for speed early. This Southern Hemisphere two-year-old grey by rising sire Snippets out of a Sovereign Edition mare will appreciate the off-season break and is one to mark down. Local trainer Gary T. K. Ng broke a four-month winless streak when V-Ming saluted later on the card and his young colt Bayview King could be providing more relief before the season is out.
