Trainer Lawrie Fownes celebrated one win but was left chasing after another on Wednesday night after a day of mixed fortunes in jousting with rival trainer David Hayes at Happy Valley. Fownes-trained Bold Vision (right) sealed a double for jockey Weichong Marwing when he led all the way in the eighth event, but The Duke failed to find the line in front in the following race and will go around again midweek in an attempt to put that right. 'You can bet your life he'll be running,' Fownes said after The Duke's sixth-place finish yesterday left him still $281,500 short of the prizemoney he needs to overhaul Wyndam Easy for the $1 million International Sale bonus. The chance to win the bonus for the 2001 sale graduate with the most stakes money closes next week when the 2002 sale is conducted and The Duke will need to win on Wednesday night at Happy Valley - when he will tackle 1,650 metres for the first time in his career - to snatch the prize from the fire. Hayes-trained Wyndam Easy ran in yesterday's event, too, but raced like a tired horse and dropped out down the straight. The Duke was caught back and wide from his awkward draw before finishing strongly and Fownes will be hoping for better luck at the draw for Wednesday's event. His winner, Bold Vision, was an unlikely leader yesterday but Fownes said he had spoken to Marwing pre-race about being prominent. 'When the rail is like this you can't give away starts, so I wanted him to be one, two or three in running and it didn't surprise me that he was in front,' Fownes said. 'My one concern was when there were a couple vying with him, because I didn't want him cut-throating and being left a sitting shot. But over the back, he managed to get out on his own and I was more comfortable then.' Ironically, Bold Vision's win upset the apple cart for the Hayes-trained Planet Ruler, the shortest priced favourite of the meeting. 'I gave my bloke a good chance but it was hard to come here too confident when there was so much talk about Hayes' horse,' Fownes said. Hayes said he believed Planet Ruler was not comfortable on the tight circuit yesterday and he would be looking to run him back at Sha Tin next start. Marwing's earlier winner, Longmark for Gary Ng Ting-keung, also led all the way in his usual racing style and gave the South African an armchair ride in the fourth.
