Sunday can't come soon enough for Weichong Marwing after he teamed up with new partner Fairy King Prawn for the first time in a workout at Sha Tin yesterday. 'I was very impressed with him. I thought he would feel good and he lived up to all my expectations. You know when you're on a top horse and he gave me that feeling straight away. I was very happy with the way he went and I can't wait to ride him in a race,' Marwing said. The South African, who partners Fairy King Prawn in the Chairman's Sprint Prize on Sunday, had his first view from the saddle on Ivan Allan's superstar along the Riverside grass gallop on a wet work morning. Accompanied by Allan's Queen Elizabeth II Cup hope Oriental Express, Fairy King Prawn worked 800 metres in good style. Marwing reported: 'I was asked to get him into stride and let him enjoy himself. He started to forge away from Oriental Express towards the end and it was a very nice piece of work. He relaxed with me and was quiet on the way down, which is a good sign.' The South African takes over on Fairy King Prawn from Robbie Fradd, who was sacked following the six-year-old's narrow defeat by Jim And Tonic in last month's Dubai Duty Free over 1,800 metres. Marwing saw Fairy King Prawn at close quarters in Dubai, where he rode Indigenous for Allan in the Sheema Classic, and he added: 'He looks to have come out of the Dubai race really well and has obviously taken the travelling in his stride. His form and condition look pretty much the same as when he was in Dubai.' Fairy King Prawn drops to 1,200 metres on Sunday for the final leg of the three-race champion sprint series. He won the opener in January - the Bauhinia Sprint Trophy - but skipped the Centenary Sprint Cup, which went to King Of Danes. Both horses will be chasing an $800,000 bonus on Sunday, awarded to any sprinter who lands two legs in the series. Marwing said he would not underestimate his rivals despite Fairy King Prawn's status as the top sprinter in Hong Kong. 'I haven't gone through the race with a fine toothcomb yet, but there are a lot of other good horses in the race. 'King Of Danes is very quick and he will be a danger, but I will study the form in detail before Sunday to find out about some of the horses I'm less familiar with. I will also look at the draw and see what's either side of me and where the pace might be - there are a lot of factors to consider. That is part of your job as a jockey and it's the same before any race - not just a big race.' Marwing, who arrived from South Africa on Tuesday, also renewed his acquaintance yesterday with Indigenous, his QEII Cup mount. The jockey, who finished 13th on Indigenous in the Sheema Classic, worked the old warrior on the all-weather over 800 metres. Afterwards Marwing said: 'He doesn't move too well in the wet or on the dirt, but he seemed a lot better when he was in Dubai. I know there has been a bit of a cold spell here, which may have affected him, or perhaps the travelling has caught up with him. Hopefully he will be all right when he gets back on the grass.' Marwing, who had to leave Hong Kong in early February following the breakdown of his retainer with trainer Tony Millard, has secured five other rides on Sunday's card. They are headed by the Allan-trained Epic Express, who will bid to put his Derby disappointment behind him in the Group Three Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup, and Marwing will also ride the griffin Magic Of Money for Allan, Alex Wong Yu-on's Joint Peace, Century Star for Eddie Lo and Gary Ng Ting-keung's Utmost Easy. Marwing, third in the jockey standings before his departure, is aiming to be back for the whole of next season, saying: 'I've applied for a Club jockey's licence and I hope I'll be accepted. It's great to be back, especially for such good rides on a big day. But I love the small days here too because the racing is so competitive and exciting, and it would be great to be involved again.'
