Manoel Nunes takes the honours as the most in-demand jockey at Sha Tin this afternoon - the only rider to command a full book on the 10-event New Year's Day programme. Nunes, who has made a great fist of his transfer from Macau where he was twice champion jockey, has rides for nine different trainers, with only Dennis Yip Chor-hong providing the Brazilian ace with two opportunities - Leader in the fourth and outsider Dave's Best in the afternoon's feature race, the Chinese Club Challenge Cup (1,400 metres). On paper, perhaps Nunes' best chance is the horse who did most to establish him in Hong Kong, veteran Flying Bishop, in the seventh event. On last night's 6pm tote call, Flying Bishop, winner of three of his five attempts this season, was listed as a $120 chance. The surprise packed among the bookings is the strong demand for the services of new club jockey Andrasch Starke, whose name has been propelled into the limelight with three recent winners, all at big prices. Starke, who won the 2005 International Jockeys' Championship at Happy Valley, has bookings in nine of the 10 events, and on live chances in Star of Northern (race one), Safety First (race five) and Time Supreme (race 10). Shortest-priced favourite on last night's prices was Triumphant Diamond, for the trainer-jockey combination of Danny Shum Chap-shing and Eric Saint Martin. Triumphant Diamond, who ran second to Care Free Prince over this course and distance nine days ago, is a $21 favourite to exact his revenge.
