Derek Cruz, riding on the crest of a wave following the success of Natural Blitz in Sunday's Hong Kong Sprint, should be able to continue in celebration mode at Sha Tin tomorrow night when Green Warrior lines up in the in middle pin of the triple trio. With the TT not being won last Wednesday at Happy Valley, the carryover pool is expected to reach $10 million and Green Warrior has all the credentials to prove a reliable banker. The Argentinian-bred Lode gelding has been a huge improver this season and broke through for his first win over 1,000 metres at Sha Tin on October 30 before running a luckless fifth to Flying Sprinter at Happy Valley 17 days later. The chestnut was checked at the start, settled back in the field, was tight for room at the 400m but worked to the line well to finish on the heels of the placegetters. With the return to his preferred straight track, the five-year-old should return to winning form under Howard Cheng Yue-tin. Groom Raider, Adaikali, Ever More and Lucky Stravinsky are all worthy inclusions in the middle leg. Groom Raider resumes for the David Hall camp and has performed smartly in his two 1,000m starts at Sha Tin, placing to the classy Country Music on both occasions. Adaikali has been in great form this season and is well suited by a return to Sha Tin, while Ever More showed he was getting back to something like his best with a good effort last time from a wide barrier. Lucky Stravinsky backs up from a sound fourth to Thistle King on Sunday and looks nicely placed with the distance drop. The opening leg on the all-weather track looks a much harder assignment but it's hard to go past Rain In Spring when searching for banker options. The Rhythm gelding has been a substantial improver since joining the Caspar Fownes stable, winning his only two outings in impressive fashion. His last-start performance on the all-weather surface when running home strongly to defeat the in-form Thunder Man was full of merit and this event doesn't appear to have much more depth. The main dangers appear to be the lightweights Winning Smile, X-Speed and Ball Of Fire with Dragon Stride worthy of inclusion while Asset Play a potential improver on the back of a recent trial win. The final leg appears a touch easier and on the last-start performance of Wise Lover, he should go very close to winning. The Alex Wong Yu-on-trained gelding settled a long way back in the field last time and was spotting the leader and eventual winner Treasure Raiders a huge start as the field wheeled for home. He eventually got to the outside of the field once balancing up and flew home to be beaten a short head in an effort that suggested he may go on to better things. Wise Lover will sport blinkers for the first time as will Miracle Dragon and Red Wine Supreme, who deserve respect. Miracle Dragon turned in a sound first-up effort when covering ground, while Red Wine Supreme, although disappointing last time, is well worth another chance on his previous decent form. Lucky Cordelia looks the other main contender, although he will need an inspired Douglas Whyte ride after coming up with barrier 13. The four-year-old showed he was ready to find his best with a good effort last start when racing wide throughout and all his wins have been with Whyte on board.
