Natural Fortune underlined his potential when catching Be A Good Horse close home in the Classes One and Two Affirmed Handicap at Taipa yesterday. Trained by John Moore's former assistant, Paul Leung, Natural Fortune has now won three of his past five starts, climbing from a rating of 73 to one near the 100-mark after yesterday's success. The rain-affected track helped the second-season import not least because Be A Good Horse, who conceded 22 pounds, found his onerous 136-pound burden just too much on the stamina-sapping surface. Conditions determined results throughout with soft track specialists to the fore on yesterday's opening meeting of the new Macau season - the previous one only closed last week with television personality 'Uncle' Bill Tung a remarkable champion trainer at the first time of asking and John Didham defending his jockeys' title. South African jockey Lucky Houdalakis was in double form. He easily took the inaugural running of the BMW Cup on George Williams' highly promising reclassified griffin Leading Stride before coming from off a suicidal pace to win the eighth on Original. New Zealand jockey Lisa Cropp opened her account at the first time of asking when successful on Wing Leung's Ju Hsin in the last, while both Tung and Didham were on the scoresheet. Tung's well backed Dragon Horse prevailed in the fifth. Didham and the Peter Leyshan-trained Tyson scrambled home in the seventh but, in fairness to the hot favourite, he won despite the ground.
