The John Moore-trained Best Gift may not have the high profile of the likes of Vengeance Of Rain and Bullish Luck but his performance in winning Sunday's Sha Tin Trophy over 1,600 metres clearly signalled his arrival as a big-game player. While advantaged at the weights, getting 15 pounds from Vengeance Of Rain and Bullish Luck, the manner in which he finished off the event left little doubt that he is the real deal and will be a force to be reckoned with even when he lines up in set weight races. With 400m remaining, Best Gift was approximately six lengths from the leader, Figures, with Vengeance Of Rain one length behind him and Bullish Luck, regarded as the best finisher in Hong Kong, a further length-and-a-half away. The final 400m was run in 22.9 seconds, meaning Best Gift broke 22 seconds for his final section, and he was full of running on the line. It has already been established that staying is Best Gift's forte and if he can become more settled in his attitude prior to a race, there are many big races in store for the five-year-old. While Vengeance Of Rain could not match the acceleration of Best Gift under the big weight disparity, he was certainly getting into stride in the final stages of the race and has returned from the summer break a real stayer. He still looks to have improvement in him and once stepping to 2,000m and beyond, he should find his best form. Bullish Luck lost no marks with his sixth placing and his final 200m showed he had come back from a spell in fine order. Saturn, who finished well back, can be excused for the run and expect him to find form very soon. He settled well in the race, which has been a problem for him in the past, but didn't get clear galloping room at any stage and went to the line untested. The Danny Shum Chap-shing-trained All's Well and Prime Delight gave notice that they would be winning better races this season, both turning in smart performances in victory. All's Well has a great attitude and temperament and will only get better as the races get longer, while Prime Delight showed good finishing speed and will also relish stepping up in distance. The Tony Cruz-trained Willie Detroy was successful at his local debut in the Sa Sa Ladies' Purse over 1,800m after being patiently ridden by Felix Coetzee. The strapping Zabeel raced wide for the entire trip but travelled strongly into the race before responding well to Coetzee's power riding. He will only get better as the races get longer and expect to see him winning feature races down the track. Lightning Star, at his first start for the Moore stable, indicated he may be ready to find his Australian form with a solid first-up fifth to Willie Detroy. He closed off well after racing midfield, will be fitter for the run and is capable at all distances between 1,600 and 2,000m.
