Former champion sprinter Best Of The Best took the second of two barrier trials at Sha Tin yesterday in pretty good style, and the ageing son of Rahy looked on much better terms with himself following a fair effort on his reappearance. Tony Culhane was always travelling sweetly aboard Wong Tang-ping's speedster and, while he is unlikely to recapture anything like his best form, he does appear to be working better than he has in some time. Golden Air, another from Ping's yard, caught the eye in third position. The handy sprinter is a versatile sort who has been just as effective on the all-weather in the past, and Ping has him primed to run well when he is produced for the first time this season. The unraced Prizes Treasure completed Ping's trio of entries in the second batch and the son of Snippets, who was purchased at last year's International Sale, moved along quite well to finish fourth. While he still has quite a bit to learn, he does appear to have some potential. Lawrie Fownes' Bellagio finished second in the same heat and, while he was vigorously ridden in the concluding stages, it was a fair effort nonetheless. The first heat of the morning was won by Ricky Yiu Poon-fie's Millennium Spirit. The lightly-raced son of Defensive Play has had his share of problems, but he found some consistency towards the end of last season and indicated in his trial that he is ready to begin this term just where he left off. David Hayes' Wyndam All led for most of the journey before being passed by Millennium Spirit close home. At this early stage of the season he appears to be in tip-top shape, as is the case for most horses from the Hayes yard. Hayes also sent around the unraced Perfect Vision, who settled at the rear of the field and was never pressured at any stage. It was hard to gauge him on that trial, and the jury is still out as far as he is concerned. Ping's Iliketosmile has not provided too many happy moments for his connections in his short career, but he did appear to hit the line strongly under Weichong Marwing to wind up in third position. He appears to have improved during the break and is worth keeping safe when he makes his seasonal debut. In other work, Peter Chapple-Hyam's promising Acrobatic caught the eye in a grass gallop down the back straight on Monday, breezing over 800 metres in 51.3 seconds with a final quarter of 23.1 seconds. He has taken his last race very well and looks in terrific order. Much the same can be said for Tony Millard's Goldchin Best, who was given a solid gallop by Robbie Fradd, being asked to extend over 800 metres in a slick 47.7 seconds. Geoff Lane's Favourite Express is yet to have a race, or for that matter a trial, but he did a nice piece of work down the 1,800-metre chute and could be worth keeping an eye on when he has his first trial. Douglas Whyte worked the unbeaten Green Century on the all-weather, and the well-bred son of Danehill has come back this season looking in great order. The champion jockey glided over 1,200 metres in one minute 19.6 seconds, cruising home in the final quarter in 23.2 seconds.
