A little bit of care early takes a horse a long way. That was the message from trainer Ricky Yiu Poon-fie after Flying Bishop triumphed in what might have been dubbed the 'Oldtimers Handicap'. Backing up from his Class Four win last week - his first victory since June 2004 - the eight-year-old Flying Bishop (Manoel Nunes) triumphed over the nine-year-old Dr More (Howard Cheng Yue-tin) and rising 10-year-old Red Pepper (Terry Wong Chi-wai) to make it two wins in the week. 'It just shows what you can do with an old horse when they were looked after when they were young,' said Yiu. 'Flying Bishop was not rushed early; he didn't start racing until he was a late three-year-old, so that's why he is still able to win after 57 starts and four seasons of racing.' Yiu said that Flying Bishop's drop to Class Four had been the catalyst for his improved form last week, but race fitness was his edge yesterday with all his rivals resuming. 'When he came through the race so well, I thought I should run him again,' Yiu said. 'That's enough for now, though, and I'll try to find him another race next month.' It was a nice surprise for Brazilian rider Nunes, too, who will have a special place in his heart for Flying Bishop, his first and second Hong Kong winner. 'Ricky rang me Monday to say he had entered him to run again and I was a bit surprised,' Nunes said. 'But he told me Flying Bishop's recovery was very good and when I rode the horse later in the week, I totally agreed and even thought he had maybe improved.' While trainer Michael Chang Chun-wai missed out on repeating last year's first-up win with Dr More, he was able to celebrate earlier when Mythic Steed (Felix Coetzee) broke his all-weather maiden in the third. 'Michael did a great job with this horse last season. He never ran a bad race,' said Coetzee. 'But when he was transferred from a turf race to run on the dirt, I looked at his form on the surface and it didn't look great. But there you go, he was always going like a winner and he blew them away.' Coetzee, who was narrowly beaten in the final race on Calcando, picked up a two-day suspension and $40,000 fine for careless riding. Coetzee will start the ban after Wednesday's meeting.
