TRACKWORK intensity has fallen away over the past few weeks and not surprisingly with just six meetings remaining. With fewer out at work yesterday there was time to ponder at some of this season's quality recruits as they cantered anti-clockwise round the inside track. Usually there is such a frenzy of activity that these have to be skipped over otherwise the fast workers will be missed. But yesterday it was pleasing to see the likes of Winning Chance, Manor Lord and Fortune Ride all looking in great shape. Alex Wong Yu-on's Winning Chance was the most impressive and won down the straight 1,000 metres in an exceptional time. The American-bred private purchase griffin is developing a wonderful mixture of strength and athleticism. David Hill's Manor Lord was unlucky to meet the potentially top-class Heavily Armed last time but was not beaten very far. The first three - Champman River was third - drew well clear of their rivals and the fourth, Fukien Boy, has won well since. So Manor Lord's form is working out well and he is thriving under Hill's patient handling. The double rounds at a canter serves two purposes. It gets them fit. But it does not harm their joints as repeated fast work on the main track can. Fortune Ride, also developing well physically, is the lightly-raced progressive sort that is vital to help put a young trainer like Tony P. H. Chan on the map. The horse looked in prime condition yesterday and could well get away with another win before the curtain falls on June 13. John Moore's Australian subscription griffin Action Time is never going to be within a class of the above horses but he is another youngster who is beginning to come to himself. He, too, seemed in ready to run his best race of the season when out on the inside track yesterday. Colourful local rider W. H. ''Rambo'' Tse has picked up a couple of useful rides for tomorrow night. He took David Oughton's Song Of The Sea through a useful final quarter of 22.9 seconds in readiness for the second event. The son of Ballad Rock won an identical event 12 months ago.
