David Oughton may have started this season quietly on the domestic front but will hold the honour of being the only trainer with runners in all four internationals tomorrow and his description of defending Hong Kong Cup winner, Precision, could turn out to be just as appropriate for himself. 'He's better in big races than in the small ones,' said Oughton, who has had just two local wins this term but has the golden knack of being able to get hold of a top class horse. His majors in the past seven years include last season's Hong Kong Cup upset and a Champions and Chater Cup with Precision, a Hong Kong Gold Cup with Idol and the Derby with Che Sara Sara. 'Precision is a horse who rises to the big occasion and it is not impossible he could again be the big surprise. He'd had two more races last year and was super fit going into this race but had a few niggling problems early this season. Having said that, he is fit and very well now.' Oughton's Mile runner, Bowman's Crossing got a late call up after Sarafan's withdrawal but the trained is thrilled to get him into the field and sees him as a dark horse. 'He was a bit behind early when he missed the Sha Tin Trophy, but I think he was right back in form last start in the Mile Trial and would have run close there with Lucky Owners if he'd had better luck in running,' Oughton explained. He concedes Cape Of Good Hope has a task ahead in the Sprint but won't be at all surprised to pick up minor money. 'He was the only horse making ground the last 200m in the Sprint Trial behind Silent Witness after the leaders had an easy time of it early. My horse needed a harder tempo there and he should have been placed in this race last year but for a check at the 200m,' Oughton said. 'Roosevelt has surprised me by even being forward enough to run in the Vase. Originally I thought he would be having probably his first run here by now, but he has progressed very quickly indeed.'
