It was the worst good result a trainer could ever wish for - training the quinella then having a protest between the stablemates. That was the prospect that faced Almond Lee Yee-tat as he entered the stewards' room knowing he would win the race ninth yesterday regardless of whether Flying Tamari (Eddie Lai Wai-ming) retained the race or the stewards on behalf of Infinite Delight (Gerald Mosse) took it away. The pair hit the line locked together, but no sooner had the judge solved the photo than the inquiry sign went up - with no assistance from Mosse, who never actually lodged a protest and was later reprimanded by the panel. For Lee it was a celebration turned into a moment of anxiety. 'Even before the race, I told everyone I thought there was nothing between the two horses so, for me, a quinella was a good result, but in my mind the protest was not what I wanted,' Lee admitted. 'I immediately asked both sets of owners to come to the stewards' room to be fair. When Jamie Stier asked me for my comments on the video, I didn't make any - I wanted to be neutral and leave it to them, so I preferred to say nothing.' With only a nose between the Lee-trained horses, stewards eventually decided that Infinite Delight's running had been impeded by Flying Tamari, who laid in over the final stages of the race and Mosse's ride was signalled as the winner. 'In the end, the stewards' decided the result - Flying Tamari shifted in, Eddie hit Gerald twice with the whip and those things were enough,' Lee said. The popular trainer followed up quickly in the last, Mosse scrambling home on Skyview Bar to give the gelding his fourth win from 11 attempts. 'I think we were lucky to win. Towering Feeling drew badly in gate 12 and it probably let us beat him, but both of them and also Jade Dragonfly are all decent horses and I'm sure we'll see more of each other in the future,' Lee said.
