Another retainership is about to bite the dust, this time with the surprise news that the headline-making pair of South Africans Tony Millard and Weichong Marwing are meeting with top Hong Kong Jockey Club officials this morning. Marwing, one of the riding revelations of the last two seasons, has already spoken about the matter with director of racing Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges and chief stipendiary steward John Schreck when he met them yesterday. But Millard, last year's Derby-winning trainer, has been away buying horses at New Zealand's premier sale in Karaka, just outside Auckland. Schreck said yesterday: 'After considering matters put by jockey Marwing it was decided that he, along with Mr Millard, should meet with the executive director of racing, the chief stipendiary steward and Jamie Stier, secretary to the licensing committee, at the offices of the Jockey Club tomorrow morning at 10.30.' Asked if the meeting was to formalise the end of their retainership, Schreck said: 'Look, I don't want to comment too much before the meeting, but it seems to be heading that way.' Marwing was unavailable for comment last night but his wife said: 'Nothing has been finalised yet but there is a meeting in the morning and that is where everything will be finalised.' The matter is believed to have come to a head over riding arrangements for next Wednesday's mixed grass and dirt card at Sha Tin, specifically for the top-rated race of the evening, the Class Two 1,400-metre handicap. Millard has Laser Pride as first reserve and Marwing's regular ride outside his stable, the potentially Class One Jeune King Prawn, is among the list of runners. The likely Millard-Marwing bust follows local trainer Andy Leung Ting-wah splitting with two jockeys already this season, Brett Doyle and Mark De Montfort. Doyle wanted to stay on and ride in Hong Kong despite the amicable split with Leung and reapplied to ride as a Club Jockey, only to be told it was too soon after splitting with Leung and that he must wait until next season. So far this season Marwing has been enjoying a great time of it again, having loomed on to the scene in the latter part of last season with a prolific stint as a Club Jockey. He is currently third in the standings this time round on 28 winners, eight behind the leader, his countryman Douglas Whyte, but only one off defending champion Robbie Fradd, who is in second. Millard did a brilliant job last season to take Keen Winner from Class Three promise to Derby glory but has been struggling a bit over the last month or so as he eased off many of his older performers after they'd had a busy first few months of the new campaign. He is in mid-division in his standings, alongside Geoff Lane and Wong Tang-ping on the 16-winner mark but 14 behind the leader Brian Kan Ping-chee and nine behind David Hayes, who is in second.
