The flamboyant Frenchman Olivier Doleuze has had an uncharacteristically quiet start to the Year of the Dog but expect racing's most excited winner to go into celebration mode tonight at Happy Valley where he will handle a number of winning chances. The pea among a strong book of eight rides for Doleuze looks to be impressive youngster Treasure Colt, a last-start winner at the course and distance on January 18 under the guidance of Christophe Soumillon. With the Belgian ace serving a period of suspension, trainer Dennis Yip Chor-hong has called on the services of Doleuze and the Frenchman should comfortably bring to a halt a losing sequence that currently stands at 30 rides since his last winner. Early tote players zeroed in on Treasure Colt as one of the bets of the meeting, and the Volksraad gelding headed the market last night at a quote of $27. Doleuze has a number of decent 'half chances' before Treasure Colt but some better ones after it, with his rides in the last four events all having legitimate claims to win. Doleuze has been booked for Cosmo Success ($79) in the sixth, Always Welcome ($150) in the seventh and Evergreen - a stablemate of Treasure Colt - in the final event. The eighth race is a wide-open affair and Evergreen heads the betting at $64, narrowly ahead of Fortune Princess and Sydney Express, with the Sean Woods-trained Capitaland - the subject of a stewards inquiry at his last start - on the fourth line of favouritism. Evergreen has a clear tactical advantage in that he's one of the few horses engaged in this race with any tactical speed. The race should set up easily for Doleuze on Evergreen, as he can go forward to take the early lead and then allow Armondo (Eric Saint-Martin) to slide across from gate 11 and take up the running.
