Thank Heavens looks heaven sent for punters in the fourth event on 10-race Chevalier Cup day at Sha Tin this afternoon. The David Oughton-trained colt looked dreadfully unlucky last time out in the race won by Winning Boy from New Trumps over today's 1,400-metre course and distance. The official result shows he was two lengths seventh of the 14 runners but it conceals much more than it reveals. The Douglas Whyte-ridden Thank Heavens turned for home full of running but simply had no where to go. He was completely blocked for a good 100 metres or so and appeared to lose more ground than the two lengths by which he was beaten. It is no exaggeration to say that with a clear run, Thank Heavens might well have prevailed in what was probably a better contest than he's in this afternoon. Interestingly, Whyte won in facile fashion on Handover last time out for Bruce Hutchison but has opted instead to ride Thank Heavens who actually showed up well in Class Two last season and was a resolute sort when trained in England. Oughton's son of Theatrical Charmer has appeared to work well since his luckless last start effort and could even start at win and place odds. Looking down the card, King Confident continues to move fluently in the mornings and Highland Legend and Namjong Success both appear ready to run big races. Highland Legend appears to have improved significantly for the one run back. Namjong Success was all the rage last time before running fourth to Sai Kung Star and Marquee Universal. He's now three pounds better off with Marquee Universal for about 1.5 lengths. Strictly speaking, that is not enough to reverse the form. But Namjong Success might well have needed that last run as he'd been off the track since the third meeting of the season. His work since then suggests he's now going better and this, combined with the weight swing, can tip the scales in his favour. Leading South African trainer Tony Millard introduces an interesting Argentinian import, Blazer, who was an improver over 1,400 metres on the dirt in his homeland. This will be his first start on grass but he looks a decent type, certainly good enough for this grade, and his work and trials indicate the same. Knight Commander has gone into the notebook the last two times when running well over inadequate trips. He's been working the track down, as is his wont, and should appreciate this afternoon's more realistic 1,400 metres. Elsewhere the Class Five horses, Cream Of The Crop, Bruin Supreme and Pretty Baby, plus Crown Shift who put in a highly creditable effort on a track which didn't suit last time, may dominate the opening event. Never Say No, unlucky last time, is worth including with them in tierce bets. Speedy Champion is well worth another chance in the second after not acting at the Valley last time. Combine him with Superior Title, Sight First and Sunny Day. Me First is worth throwing into tierces in this second event. The David Hayes-trained Helene Express looks potentially top of Class One and can take the Chevalier Cup while Hayes can complete a Cup double as his recent acquisition Johan Cruyff is favoured by the weights and hard to get away from in the Pok Oi Diamond Jubilee Cup. Johan Cruyff has been flying in the mornings.
