There were a number of horses to note for the future from the seven trials at Sha Tin yesterday including the winner of the opening qualifying event, Paul O'Sullivan-trained Treasure Raiders. The unraced galloper displayed plenty of early speed and travelled strongly all the way to the wire for Shane Dye. He clearly knows his job superbly and came through to win the trial in an impressive manner. There was marked progress displayed when compared to his turf trial towards the end of last month and leaves the impression that he could be winning on debut. In the same trial, Peter Ho Leung's Handbag General also caught the eye. Douglas Whyte was always near the speed and applied very little pressure at any stage. Derek Cruz-trained Miraculous finished third, and he too strode out purposefully when niggled along by Daryll Holland. The main one to follow from the second qualifying event was eventual winner Dr Haensler from the Almond Lee Yee-tat yard. He led from start to finish, displaying plenty of dash. His action looked a little awkward but the son of Anabaa possesses plenty of speed. Making up nice ground in the concluding stages was Carry The Magic, hinting there is scope for plenty of improvement. The third heat was held over 1,050 metres on the all-weather surface and Tony Millard-trained Blue Stitch confirmed his superior rating to come through and win the trial in a sterling manner. It was his best piece of work this season. Millard also won the fourth heat with Five Grains, scoring by 31/2 lengths over the 1,050 metres. It was a sound piece of work and Five Grains does look in tremendous order. It was no real surprise to see last-start winner Green Treasure win the fifth trial over 1,600 metres on the turf. He continues to work exceptionally well and looks in fantastic shape. Felix Coetzee had to work hard to get Great Leader to win the sixth trial, held down the straight course. It was a fair piece of work, but the signs were most encouraging for runner-up Flashing Star. He went to the line hard-held by Eddie Lai Wai-ming and he looks primed to run well when he next appears. Millard kept the momentum of winners coming in the trials when landing the final heat with The King (rated 80). He has finished no closer than 11th from three starts, but has clearly turned the corner based on this trial. He showed good early speed and went to the line with a good deal in reserve. ONES TO NOTE: Treasure Raiders, Handbag General, The King.
