Trainer enjoys bumper night in winner's circle after season of disappointment Trainer Ricky Yiu Poon-fie put a season of disappointment behind him and struck back with a vengeance at Happy Valley last night as he and jockey Olivier Doleuze plundered the card with winning trebles. It was a tale of two distinctly different seasons, with Doleuze celebrating easily his best Hong Kong season while Yiu lifted his tally to 16 wins after Doleuze added Trust Me and Millennium Spirit to the opening win by Daneman Hill (Corey Brown). 'Well, it was a nice surprise. Considering how the track was helping inside barriers, I can't say I expected to come here and win with horses drawn in barrier 10, seven and 12,' said a smiling Yiu. 'Actually I was very surprised how easily Daneman Hill was able to get over to the front from his gate. When I discussed it with Corey Brown, we were both thinking the best chance we had was to see if he could be fourth or fifth and get some cover.' Daneman Hill was a more impressive animal last night than the one who has pulled in the past over the 1,200 metres journey, but Yiu believes there is better to come from the son of Danehill with maturity - and a minor operation. 'He is a Danehill so the owner doesn't want to geld him but really he needs it if he is to settle down and realise his racing potential,' Yiu said. 'His behaviour is getting better though. He has been quite bad at the starting gates and the stewards made him trial several times this season as a result. That's why he has not had many races, but he's improving.' Trust Me and Millennium Spirit, though, are rising eight and at the other end of their racing careers. 'Happy Valley is always good for the older horses, a little bit softer underfoot for them. That's why Trust Me improved last time and today, but Millennium Spirit has always been good at any track. He has been such a lovely horse to have in the stable. I told Olivier before the race, as long as he is in class three, Millennium Spirit is always a chance and the speed in the race worked out well for him.' Doleuze brought Millennium Spirit with a perfectly timed burst to win the gelding's eighth race and his fourth at Happy Valley as he took his prizemoney close to the $5 million mark. The French rider's other winner was on Ever More, leading throughout on the John Moore-trained sprinter to give him 53 wins for the season and open a break in the race for third place in the jockeys' championship over Anthony Delpech, who went to 49 after his win on David Ferraris-trained Cash Surprise, and Shane Dye, who went to 48 after winning on Treasure Raiders for rookie trainer Paul O'Sullivan. Another rookie having a strong finish to his campaign is David Hall. The Australian has made a serious mark in recent weeks with his new three-year-olds. Siameric Te Specso (Brett Prebble) joined stablemates Laser Power and Romantic Winner as unbeaten after two starts when he held too many guns in the Sir Cecil's Ride Handicap, 1,200m. 'He just lost the edge off his speed tonight and wants further but he showed plenty of character to win,' said Hall. 'He's very professional, nothing worries him and that sort of horse can go a fair way in Hong Kong racing.' Hall's Million Success looked the main sufferer from interference when third in race four last night, with Oscar Chavez earning himself a two-day holiday and $10,000 fine for his ride in the race aboard Dash For Victories. And Derek Cruz returned Fruity Fruity to the Valley winner's circle for the fourth time this season when Robbie Fradd weaved a passage down the straight and stormed clear to win the last. 'He had a fair bit of racing earlier in the season to win the Happy Valley Million Challenge and needed a break in March but he had worked like a bullet leading up to tonight's race and I knew he was back,' said Cruz.
