Kimbo Kid may be a modest galloper on turf but his status grows immeasurably when he steps out on the all-weather track. The David Oughton-trained six-year-old bounced straight to the front in the second of yesterday's five dirt trials and made all, comfortably holding out the talented Pocket Money (Douglas Whyte) to score by a length. The Sean Woods-trained Pocket Money followed Kimbo Kid throughout and looked certain to score when he moved off the fence to challenge some 250 metres from home. But while Whyte got to work on Pocket Money to make him go on with the job, apprentice Terry Wong Chi-wai was sitting quietly on Kimbo Kid and the chestnut ultimately hit the line a decisive one length winner. The first pair pulled a strong margin - 41/2 lengths - on third placed Romantic Green, an Irish-bred private purchase from the stable of Me Tsui Yu-sak. The times were also positive, with Kimbo Kid's final 400m and 200m splits being the fastest of the morning. One might have imagined that Floral Pegasus would have clocked a superior time in the opening heat, where he inflicted a half length defeat on Silent Witness, but his overall time and final splits were all fractionally slower than Kimbo Kid's. While Floral Pegasus and Silent Witness dominated the heat, there was plenty of merit in the performance of third placed Clean Sweep for trainer John Size and jockey Whyte. The five-year-old has had a long break from racing and looked in grand order as he strode around the outside of his seven rivals. Although Whyte was barely moving a muscle on him, Clean Sweep hit the line with real enthusiasm and was able to knock specialist sprinter Bulb King out of the minor placing. The third trial was a more modest affair and was taken out by the New Zealand-bred five-year-old Classa Supreme, trained by Peter Ho Leung. The Justice Prevails gelding went straight to the front for apprentice Alex Lai Hoi-wing and maintained his position in the run home, scoring by three lengths. However, as the slow sectional time [25.6 seconds for final 400m] suggests, he was offered very little competition. Eye Witness, owned in the same interests as champion Silent Witness, impressed by working home late for fourth. The chestnut won two of his seven starts last preparation and looks to have returned in good fettle. Canny Lad gelding, Sohna, who showed some promise in the griffin ranks last season, indicated he might live up to that potential this term as a three-year-old. Sohna, a 2005 international sale graduate, took a forward position and went through to challenge at the 200m before drawing clear to win by three lengths from the David Ferraris-trained stayer Posa. Whyte also won the final heat, this time for Ferraris on lightly-raced four-year-old Towering Feeling. HORSES TO FOLLOW: Floral Pegasus, Clean Sweep, Kimbo Kid, Eye Witness.
