The drop into the bottom grade on the back of some decent form provides Star Of Northern with the perfect opportunity to notch his first victory, but more importantly to be used as banker material in the opening leg of the Triple Trio at Sha Tin tomorrow night. It is no fluke that leading jockey Douglas Whyte has snapped up the ride aboard this fellow, who has managed to pick up money on four of his last five starts in class four. In addition, he should relish the step up to a mile and from gate six should have every chance to figure in the finish. Providing Telepride is not pressured too hard in a front-running role, he also has plenty of appeal. His recent form has been solid and he leaves the impression he will be suited by the move up to a mile. Although The Faculty and Millennium Supreme have both drawn poorly, each has been holding its respective form well and cannot be denied place claims. Multi Ransom (rated 31) looks a touch better than his current rating and will be fitter this time round. The logical option for banker in the middle pin is in-form Picture Perfect. He has managed to hit the frame on all five starts, including two wins, and one of those victories came over 1,400 metres. He is ideally drawn in gate one and should prove hard to beat. Northern Rose is resuming after a five-month break, but won two of three starts earlier this season and left the impression in a recent all-weather trial he is primed to run very well. The step up to 1,400m looks far more suitable for Night Ninja, having hit the frame on three of six attempts including one victory. Lucky Lad is becoming well handicapped and this looks an easier test for him, while Goodwood has a magnificent course and distance record and cannot be ruled out of hitting the frame. The best option for banker in the final leg is Cotton Ball, who returns to 1,800m on the all-weather surface. He scored on the same course and distance earlier this season.It is hard to know how well Victory Treasure will handle the specialist surface on his first attempt. But he definitely looks the most progressive galloper in this line-up. Fortune Dancer rarely is far away when competing over the longer distances on the all-weather surface and merits plenty of respect, along with Golden Maple, who is a multiple winner over the course and distance. Esprit D'Or put in his best performance on the specialist surface last time and must be kept safe. The standout selection for banker in the third event is Genki King, who does look hard to beat given his form over the 1,200m on the all-weather surface. He found Golden Care too good for him last time, but this looks an easier assignment. Doucai must be given place claims over his favourite trip, while Opera Magic and Everest both ran well in defeat last time out and deserve to be added to the short list. It will be worthwhile keeping debutant Fat Dragon safe as he trialled well recently on the all-weather surface.
