FORMER multiple champion trainer Brian Kan Ping-chee produced four of his imports for this season during yesterday's two barrier trials on the Sha Tin all-weather surface yesterday morning and they all shaped with plenty of promise. But at this stage it was his Medic Star who looked the most promising when travelling from trap to line hard on the bit in the second trial for stable jockey Felix Coetzee. I'd love to be able to tell you all about Medic Star's form but the Jockey Club have yet to release it. What is known is that he raced in England as a two-year-old called Sixpees, is officially three-years-old today and has been rated to a mark of 77 in Class Two. These Northern Hemisphere imports often take a while to acclimatise and as Medic Star is such a young horse, he is unlikely to be at his peak until next season. But he does look a very good prospect and could start to come into his own towards the end of the season. You see, back in England he would be racing against his own age group from about April through to June at the earliest and when he eventually would be asked to tackle older horses, there would be a weight-for-age allowance. Here the weight-for-age allowance appears to get emasculated in the rating system and is by no means as apparent as in England. Indeed, the situation arises out here of horses still actually two-years-old, as their foaling date could be March or April, being asked to concede weight to four and five-year-olds. No matter how good they go, and Medic Star does look to go very well, this puts them at an almost insuperable disadvantage. It is boys taking on men. In the same trial, Kan's Super Shine also went smoothly to the line under a firm hold from Jimmy K. H. Ting. Super Shine raced twice in New Zealand and has been rated to a mark of 70 in Class Two. He looks the ideal type for local racing as he has few miles on the clock and plenty of scope for improvement. He has also been noted working well prior to yesterday's trial, for example he went better than Medic Supreme (on show in the first trial) and as well as another of Kan's newcomers, English import, Mr Judge, in a solid gallop on Tuesday morning. In the second trial there was also a fine effort from Alex Wong Yu-on's Radiant Sun who is worth a decent bet the next time he runs. He ran very well when not fully wound-up behind Invincible and Money Fountain last time out and has made good progress since. Yesterday he powered to the line in his trial looking as if there was plenty more in the locker. Kan's pair of newcomers, Medic Supreme and Evergreen Light went easily in mid-division in yesterday's first trial. They didn't look as forward as Medic Star or Super Shine but they still went pleasingly. Medic Supreme is another English import who raced as Mosaic Gold back at home and has been rated to 66 in Class Three. Evergreen Light comes from Ireland where his form has led him to be rated 75 in Class Two. He won twice in Ireland over 1,400 metres as a two-year-old and 1,800 metres on his penultimate three-year-old start though both his successes came at grade three tracks - Roscommon and Dundalk. Generally Friday has become a quiet morning on the track though Ivan Allan's last-start winner, Stellar Express, was noted looking really well in light work on the inside. Allan's Sky High also went solidly round the inside in readiness for today's final event. David Oughton used the inside to put a serious piece into Song Of The Sea though he's developed an aversion to the barriers.
