French jockey Eric Saint-Martin, considered a major chance in the championship this season, produced a ride of quality to land Score (9-2) and complete a Happy Valley double last night. On his best form there are few better around than Saint-Martin and his effort on the Class Four galloper Score was a feature of an entertaining night's racing. So, too, was an epic finish to the sixth event, which saw champion jockey Basil Marcus conjure up a pulsating last half-stride win out of Top Light (7-2), who lunged out wide and had most of Happy Valley wondering who had won. Honours went to Marcus and champion trainer David Hayes with Top Light just edging Tremendous Way in a thrilling, four-way finish. Trainer Wong Siu-tan, who completed a double when Glen Boss continued his good run by winning the final event on Faster Mount (6-1), will scarcely be dreaming of top honours for the four-year-old son of Last Tycoon but Score is unquestionably useful. Over the 1,650-metre trip he was outpaced early and looked almost a forlorn hope at half-way, although he was making ground - albeit slowly. They had gone a fair clip with Take Off (16-1) making the running and it was not until 250 metres out that Score's supporters took heart. Saint-Martin angled him out from behind the pack and then the gelding really started putting in huge strides, collaring the leaders and going on to fittingly score a significant victory. Earlier, Saint-Martin had also produced a well-timed run on Star Of Wah Yan (5-1) to take a similar Class Four event on the five-year-old, who was well turned out by Peter Ho. There is no stopping the local handler and this was his fourth winner of the season, which is no mean feat. Ho's start is in marked contrast to that of John Moore, who is still seeking his first winner after the notable failure of 2-1 favourite Happy Monies in the second event and Gold Mine (4-1) in the race won by Score. Happy Monies had looked the one to beat in the night's top-rated race but finished last with evergreen Lawrie Fownes completing a most satisfying early double with Mission Sealed (10-1). The five-year-old is better known over more ground than 1,200 metres and Fownes happily admitted to being pleasantly surprised. 'I was hopeful that we might run third because there were a few good sprinters involved and I did not think we could get to them. 'But he was given a good, intelligent ride, the fancied ones didn't run as expected and we took full advantage,' said Fownes. It was a good ride from stable jockey Wendyll Woods, who posted the first leg of the double in the opener when topweight Big Treasure (10-1) obliged in the Class Five, 1,650-metre event. 'I thought he had a grand chance. He had a lot of niggling problems last season and I had him swimming quite a bit. The horse was really feeling good in himself and ready for it. 'It is good to win with horses like him and it has continued our good run,' said Fownes, whose horses are invariably worth following in the early stages of the season. The long-serving Fownes can afford to laugh these days at hoary suggestions he is at his best early on. 'I think we'll be able to keep it going,' he laughed. Big Treasure beat Owner's Bliss (5-1) and Aim On Kris (6-1), who had every chance but did not relish the battle. Former champion trainer Brian Kan Ping-chee and new stable jockey David Harrison were off the mark at Sha Tin on Saturday night and followed up with enigmatic stayer Nansen (10-1) in the fourth event. It is best to catch Nansen early on in the season and this nail-tugging victory was virtually a re-run of an effort of a year ago at the city venue. On top of the ground and at this track, if Nansen can get his own way in front, he will invariably be a threat. Harrison, who is a handy judge of pace, got him rolling early and he just able to hold off the Douglas Whyte-ridden favourite Red Commander (9-2) by a whisker.
