THE Brian Kan Ping-chee bandwagon rolled on with a 42-1 double at Happy Valley last night. The man they still call 'The Champ' scored with the progressive sprinter California Gold in the third before completing his double with Love Of Freedom in the fifth. Both winners were ridden by stable jockey Felix Coetzee who took his score to eight for the season. For Kan the double lifted him to 12 winners and alongside Lawrie Fownes in third in the trainer standings. Kan's horses habitually look the pick of the paddock and it was much the same last night with both California Gold and Love Of Freedom impeccably turned out. Kan may be in the news for the occasional controversial statement but he is also one of the hardest-working trainers around. He does things his way, pays attention to the very last detail around the stable and the results so often follow. After California Gold had held Super Bingo II by half a length in the third, Kan said: ''I've always liked this horse ever since he came to me. He was a bit disappointing earlier in the season but has thrived since I decided to bring him back in distance. ''He has a lot of natural speed and that could be seen tonight.'' California Gold's form is certainly working out well enough as he beat Horse Supreme by a handy five lengths on his penultimate outing and Horse Supreme went on to win last night's sixth event for Ivan Allan and Basil Marcus. So the indication is clearly there that California Gold can make it three wins in a season for Kan, not least as he and Super Bingo II drew well clear of third-placed Call Me Special with the others well strung out behind. That is normally a sign of goodform. Love Of Freedom benefitted from the move to a mile and the strong pace set by Fortune Collect in the fifth. Fortune Collect hung on well for third and now that he is approaching peak fitness is one to note on the equitrack, especially if brought back to 1,400 metres. Horse Supreme's victory sent Allan to 15 winners for the campaign and two clear of triple defending champion John Moore. Honours were even on the night at the head of the jockey standings as Tony Cruz immediately matched Marcus' win when taking the last event on Royal Pride for Geoff Lane. Marcus remains one clear on 17 winners for the season in a private duel which looks set to run the duration. No one smiled a smile of Simon 'Hong Kong' Yim proportions after he notched his first career victory on City Raider for his retaining trainer Patrick Biancone in the fourth. Yim is one of the most hard-working apprentices around but until last night had found it impossible to ride that elusive first winner. When it came, it came with some aplomb. Yim did not panic when City Raider was outpaced in the early stages and then made his move down the back. In doing so he caught napping fellow 10-pound claimer Eddie Lai on Valiant Red. Lai rallied his mount but it was too late. City Raider won eased down. Yim beamed deservedly for the cameras and Captain Ron held Valiant Red for the quinella. Punters started the night badly when 8-5 favourite Ellen's Voyage could not even run the tierce in the opener which saw local jockey K.H. Hung ride his first winner of the season from just his 11th ride. Hung, on Diamond Express, caught Celestial Marshal close home with the latter looking to need the outing. That super young apprentice Francis K.S. Lam was on the mark again, this time producing a copybook ride on Bold Bidder in the second to take Lam Hung-fie to seven winners for the season. Last night, Lam's four rides produced a winner, two seconds and a third and he really does look an apprentice to follow. He is now claiming seven pounds but looks more than value for that claim.
