Hong Kong Jockey Club Licensing Committee announced something old and something new yesterday with jockeys Weichong Marwing and Dwayne Dunn licensed for the final months of this season along with Australian teenage prodigy Nicholas Ryan (pictured). Marwing and Dunn are well known to Hong Kong fans but Melbourne's reigning champion Ryan, 18, will be a new face when he starts on March 1. Widely-regarded as one of the brightest prospects in many years Down Under, Ryan became the first junior since Damien Oliver to win the Melbourne senior jockeys' championship last season, breaking the record for the number of wins in a season along the way. Yet to win a Group One, Ryan has won a Group Two, six Group Threes and 12 other black type races, and represented Australia in the 2004 International Apprentice Jockeys Series in Mauritius. Marwing, who is licensed from March 27, has ridden only at a handful of feature international meetings in Hong Kong since he left for personal reasons at the end of 2003. Already a winner of 179 races in Hong Kong and Group Ones including the Derby and Hong Kong Mile, Marwing has since ridden with great success in Dubai and his native South Africa. Dunn, who will ride from March 20 until the end of the season, has ridden 105 winners in Hong Kong and been a frequent return visitor since his return to Australia on a fulltime basis in 2004. The Committee extended until July 2 the licences of all current riders except Seb Sanders, Chris Munce and Christophe Soumillon.
