The demon Douglas Whyte, fresh from Wednesday night's magnificent Sha Tin four-timer, looks the way to go in the opening leg of tomorrow's mixed turf and dirt Triple Trio, also at the New Territories venue. Whyte partners Tambora Star for local trainer Francis Lui and all the signs from trackwork have pointed to Tambora Star, a very competitive dirt performer when he's right, being back to near his best form. In this third event, he should relish taking the drop into an essentially Class Four contest and it seems more than reasonable to see the booking of Whyte as a deep underscoring of those useful gallops Tambora Star has looked to have been putting in. Air Force One is always a place chance. He didn't have the best of runs last time while Bon Bon, should strip fitter following a recent run on the dirt. He's very much a confirmed dirt specialist and is another suited by a Class Four contest. Hero's Way has been a standing dish on the dirt for some time as has Lyphard's Lad who was ridden into the ground by his inexperienced claimer last time and now has Eric Legrix back aboard. Legrix understands the way to ride Lyphard's Lad better than anyone. The step up in trip to a mile is what Luck And Fortune has been looking for. He had no luck over 1,200 metres at the Valley last time. The dirt is the worry as it must be for Carry-On Dreamboat who put in arguably the most eye-catching run of the season at Happy Valley last time and has always looked a decent staying type in the making. He's just needed time to get the hang of things and for his fitness to be developed. The fourth event, the TT's middle pin, is full of ifs, buts and maybes. Greenmore won well last time and clearly deserves to have his supporters again, especially with that man Whyte replacing the suspended Eric Saint-Martin. Eternal Star had no luck last time when trapped wide throughout and could go well as could Easy Star who, while he finds winning tough, is more than capable of running into the tierce. Sound Lover looks to be on a reasonable mark while Hail Winner has solid form and Empire Court was a progressive sort last season but could need the run. The sixth which concludes the TT is another puzzling affair and maybe, given the apparently difficult nature of the final two legs of the TT, the best strategy could be to keep stakes to a minimum and hope for a jackpot to attack in a week's time. Non Sequitur can strip fitter and should give a good account of himself in the sixth as should Flags Up at good odds due to his inexperienced rider. Arriba-Arriba is likely to be flashing home late while Whyte's booking for Wong Tang-ping's useful worker Pegasus Star looks significant. Whyte has a prolific record for this most astute of local mentors. Shane Dye is riding in such consummate style that it would be hard to leave out Flamenco Star with much confidence and just watch out for an improved effort from Optic Elite who could well strip considerably fitter than he did first-up. Mundahish comes into it as he might just lead by himself.
