NIGEL Tiley is clearly intent on ending his riding career on a high note and Filipachi (7-2 favourite) started what could be a glorious send-off for the naturalised New Zealander in the final event at Sha Tin yesterday. Tiley revealed plans last week to quit the saddle for a training career in Auckland but he showed with a faultless ride on Filipachi that he will be missed. Filipachi, untested over the 2,200-metre trip and carrying 140 pounds, won by an impressive three and three-quarter lengths from battling A Better World (8-1) who came again to nudge out the John Moore-trained Should Run For Me (4-1). While the winning margin may have made Tiley's task look easy, that was not necessarily the case. Filipachi was carrying a lot of weight but Tiley made the job easy for the son of Caerleon by refusing to leave the fence. He stayed glued to the rail until he came off to make his ultimate challenge with the result that the five-year-old had to do the minimum of work until the crunch came. ''He deserved it because I think he has been a bit of an unlucky horse. He has been running into the frame but always finding one a bit too good. ''I was confident he would have no problems at the trip and the pace they went early certainly wasn't against him,'' he said. Filipachi looked every inch a very handy type in the combined Classes Two and Three event and will clearly be a threat in the future over similar trips. A Better World gave a very genuine sight. Jockey John Marshall had him in third and fourth behind tearaway leader Amazing Grace (50-1) and Should Run For Me, who took time to settle for Tony Cruz. Marshall nudged him closer to the action turning for home but he still looked held by Should Run For Me in the final 100 metres. The Moore galloper was blinkered for the first time but may just be a bit less than 100 per cent genuine as he has now been collared twice close home. Gun Sin (9-2) was third favourite on the strength of his efforts at Happy Valley when winning over a similar trip two starts back but he was never a threat in this one. And a confident Tiley is looking forward to the final eight meetings of his riding career. He said: ''I am looking for as many winners as I can get and with a bit of luck there should be another three or so anyway.''
