Sean Woods, one of the new Hong Kong trainers for next season, was full of praise for John Size yesterday after watching the rookie shoot to the top of the standings with a four-timer. Woods, who was in Hong Kong for the first time since his appointment was announced this month, said: 'It's great that a new guy can come in and do so well. I know it will be a tough act to follow, but I'm just looking to make my own way when I get here and it doesn't put more pressure on me. In fact, it's great to see that it can be done for someone new to get off to a good start.' Woods flew in from Britain on Friday night on a fact-finding mission ahead of his planned move in early June. 'I'm just here to sign on the dotted line and have a more detailed look at how things work here,' he said. 'I've been coming here for the past 10 years, so I've got a pretty good knowledge about the place, but I've got a lot of appointments lined up to find out more. I'll be here for about 10 days.' High on the agenda is choosing an assistant trainer and Woods, renowned as one of the most hard-working trainers in Britain, said: 'Above all, I want someone who is prepared to graft. The Jockey Club have put forward three possibles and I would like to meet all of them and give them all a chance.'
