Almond Lee Yee-tat has been one of the big movers in the premiership race this season and his winning momentum looks set to continue when Mutual Friendship attempts to make up for a luckless last-start performance in today's Game Spirit Handicap at Sha Tin. Lee was granted a licence last season and enjoyed considerable success with 27 successes. However, with 14 meetings remaining this term he has already surpassed that figure by five wins to sit sixth on the premiership ladder. His amount of wins is unlucky not to read one higher after Mutual Friendship looked a certainty beaten when finishing a head second to Walkonthewildside at Sha Tin four weeks ago. The Bertolini gelding took up his customary position back in the field but was hopelessly blocked for a run in the early part of the straight with jockey Danny Nikolic left with little option but to sit and wait for an opening. Once finally in the clear, Mutual Friendship let down impressively but failed to reel in Walkonthewildside, who pinched a winning break while the runner-up was in a zip fastener. It was certainly no flash-in-the-pan effort as Mutual Friendship has turned in smart performances at his previous two starts and he will only need an ounce of better luck on this occasion to open his winning account. His main danger will come from the promising Northern Hero, who has also returned with hard-luck stories at his last two assignments. The Tony Millard-trained three-year-old showed good heart to finish second to Cheerful Master after being caught three wide on a limb throughout two starts back, and couldn't overcome another wide trip last outing when sixth to Horace's Choice. Olivier Doleuze has his first ride on the Anabaa gelding today, and the punters who sent out Northern Hero as a short-priced favourite at his last three starts are entitled to step up to the plate one more time. Victory Turbo is one of the main contenders coming in fresh from a good draw, while the query runner of the race is Forever Fight, who makes his local debut. The three-year-old showed good promise in Australia when winning two of six and he has looked a likely type in his trackwork and trials. In his last trial appearance on May 4, the Special Bond gelding was taken back to a rearward position but closed off nicely in the final stages to finish third to Top Scorer without being asked a serious question.
