Champion trainer John Size wrapped up an icy treble at Sha Tin yesterday but the snap in the weather left him cold after the feature Police Cup, for reasons unrelated to the air temperature. After earlier victories with Shane Dye-ridden Mark Of Excellence and Dynamic Fun, Size made it three with Winning Dragon (Robbie Fradd) in the main race of the afternoon, but the celebrations were tempered by disappointment when the smart young sprinter returned to the enclosure bleeding from both nostrils. 'That's too bad because I felt Winning Dragon was just starting to find his right form,' Size said. 'He's never indicated to me that he might bleed like that, but it must be the quick change in the weather. There have been a few that have bled here today.' Earlier in the day, Super Bold Racer and Perfect Moment also suffered bleeding attacks. Winning Dragon was too strong in his fourth win from nine starts after enjoying a perfect ride from Fradd, pouncing on the lead inside the final 250 metres then holding the late challengers at bay, but the gelding will now incur an automatic three-month ban from racing for the bleeding attack. A second attack would earn him a lifetime ban. 'Unfortunately he gets a holiday now, but it's not the end of the line. Splendid Bo Bo came back in good form earlier this year after a bleeding attack last season,' Size said. The win in unusual circumstances continued Winning Dragon's colourful history with the jockey - it was the gelding's first win since scoring for Fradd at Happy Valley on the night of his arrest along with 20 others in ICAC Operation Greengrass, and it was a ride upon Winning Dragon over which he was charged with cheating at gambling and subsequently found not guilty. On a day when champion jockey Douglas Whyte also asserted himself in the riders' championship with a treble, Size's three wins also sent him six clear of his nearest rivals in the title race, Andy Leung Ting-wah and Francis Lui Kin-wai. The promising Mark Of Excellence justified his short odds in the fourth to score after appearing to be in some discomfort on the inside of horses from gate one. 'He was little bit awkward there but he is still just learning and the horse in front of me kept coming back on him so it was not totally his fault,' Dye said. 'When he got balanced he was always going to win.' Size said he may step Mark Of Excellence up in trip if there was a suitable race in the near future. 'That would seem to be reasonable, the way he finishes at 1,600 metres, he is probably ready for 1,800 metres now,' he said. 'He was better suited at this course today even with the rail out and its pleasing to see that the horse has gone ahead like we had hoped he would after the tough win at Happy Valley last time. Shane got a nice split turning for home and he certainly looked the winner once he was balanced.' Dynamic Fun was able to take up the running and dictate in the all-weather sixth event but Size does not believe the son of Dynaformer is only a dirt horse by any means. 'No I wouldn't say that. He does handle the all-weather course very efficiently but he has run a couple of good races on the turf as well,' Size said. 'It's just a case of being able to find the right type of race for him on either surface.' Another winner now for the graduates of the 2001 Hong Kong International Sale, Dynamic Fun appreciated the step to 2,000 metres yesterday and the dominant ride from Dye. 'The idea was that Shane would lead or race handy on him if he came out of the gates cleanly and when he did jump well, I wasn't surprised to see him in front,' Size said. 'That probably suits him, especially as I thought Shane handled it very well when he got there and controlled the race.' With short-priced Lucky Combination the favourite in the final race, Size was unable to convert three wins to four but was happy enough with the horse's effort for second. 'Four would have been better but, still, three is good. You can come here and have six seconds too, we've been down that path before,' Size laughed. 'The pace went a bit flat at one stage in the last race and Lucky Combination probably needs it more consistent than that to win at 1,600 metres these days, but he ran well.'
