Step To Win certainly owed Shane Dye and trainer Almond Lee Yee-tat a win but his maiden success yesterday should prove the stepping stone to better things in the future if patience prevails. The son of Stravinsky has always shown some ability even from the pre-racing trials but greenness and soundness have been his foes and it might not be until next season that the three-year-old shows his true worth. 'He was a bit open at the knee last season and it has been important to give him plenty of time rather than ask him to do too much too early,' said Lee of the 2005 International Sale graduate. 'But he has a first-time owner who is very keen and I have to keep telling him the benefits of patience, especially knowing the horse has ability.' Jockey Gerald Mosse sacrificed passage for pace for the second time in five days to draw a winning result from the Caspar Fownes-trained Natural Nine in the Mount Cameron Handicap (2,000m). Last Wednesday, a farcically slow tempo at Happy Valley saw Mosse roll forward to race wide on All Our Way but handy to the lead in a tactical move which paved the way to victory, and so it was with Natural Nine yesterday. The gelding has shown versatility in the past at being able to race up or back but Mosse chose to be wide and handy rather than get cover and let the tempo beat him and the improved four-year-old ran away to score easily. Mosse took a double, including the Group One Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup, but his effort on South Breeze in race seven saw him in trouble for careless riding at the top of the straight. He was given a two-day suspension and HK$40,000 fine, though the ban was deferred until after the Longchamp meeting next Sunday at which Mosse will ride. Also in trouble, but without the wins in the bank, was Way Leung Ming-wai, who was found guilty of careless riding on Beautiful Choice in the fifth over an incident 800m out. Leung was banned for three days with immediate effect. Enchanted was rewarded for some consistent recent form with an easy win in the High West Handicap, albeit over a distance which trainer Michael Chang Chun-wai doesn't regard as his best. 'He's been running at a mile and come back to 1,400m today to win easily, so some people might think that is why,' Chang said. 'But the truth is that he can handle the mile and I think he would race well right up to 2,000m.' Chang said that Enchanted's bleeding attack in September 2005 changed the horse's needs forever so that the right ride is the key rather than the right distance. 'The main thing with him since then is that he must get cover in a race. For some horses, it doesn't matter, but with Enchanted the difference between getting cover and relaxing and not getting cover is just too important,' Chang said. So Felix Coetzee can take a bow for giving Enchanted just what he needed - and Enchanted gave Coetzee a double.
