FORTUNE Ride can continue Tony P. H. Chan's tremendous burst of training form by defying topweight in tonight's third event on the Happy Valley grass. This is only a Classes Three and Four contest and looks the least competitive event Fortune Ride has tackled all season. Basically his recent form has been about good enough to see him win from a light weight in Class Two so he should take plenty of beating against these - particularly as he has a decent head second to Clear City over the 2,230-metre course and distance to his name. That run came in a Classes Two and Three event and is a measure of how much Fortune Ride is dropped in grade tonight. Since then Fortune Ride has been freshened up with a nice spell away from racing before coming back to run a good second to Win Label over a mile on the equitrack. He was noted rallying well at the finish to claim the quinella spot from Diamond Treasure indicating that he needs a return to this longer trip. Bruce Hutchison's Spirits Bay and the in-form Gerald Mosse may give him most to do. Spirits Bay ran a very good short head second to Most Delighted in similar company at Sha Tin on International Cup day, the pair of them drawing well clear of their opposition which is always a sign of good form. Mosse, with his patience but predatory style of riding, looks the perfect jockey for Spirits Bay who loves to come late on the scene. The first event doesn't look too bad as far as betting is concerned, either. It may go to Lawrie Fownes' Smart Boy who has always shaped as if looking out for 1,800 metres. He represents a trainer in outstanding form and jockey Darren Gauci will be very hungry for success after having had to sit and suffer on the sidelines for the last three meetings due to a careless riding ban as the stable have sent out winners left, right and centre. Stablemate Sea Ruby must be a danger as both he and Smart Boy worked exceptionally well on Saturday morning. Like Smart Boy, the step up in distance should help and it could well be a stable quinella. Something Special will like the distance and Hidden Treasure has very solid Class Six form. If Royal Blue can get to the front he could figure but Tony Cruz's mount, the last-start equitrack winner, Three Joys, may find the trip on the short side. He is also up plenty in the weights. Hutchison, who has a big chance with Spirits Bay, looks to have an even better one with Golden Gamble (Nap) in the second. The white-haired mentor has done really well with this problem horse - as he has with the similarly difficult Yangtze Treasure and Pretty Long Legs. Golden Gamble would have finished a bit closer behind Humdinger in a much better race than this last time out - his reappearance and first start for the Hutchison team - but for the attentions of Jade Signet and has been working well since with Sunday's luckless runner-up Yangtze Treasure. Ivan Allan Horse Delight may provide most danger. There hasn't been too much in this son of Gold And Ivory's form to suggest that he can go well but he has really started to blossom in his work. Indeed, he has finished last on two of his three starts but they can be forgiven as first time out he bolted on the way down and had run his race before the gates opened. Last time out he didn't handle the equitrack at all. But he is now back to 1,235 metres on the grass and is demoted into Class Five. Allan, a former multiple champion trainer in Malaysia and Singapore, is a master at freshening his horses up and getting them to sprint well. Since that disastrous equitrack effort, Horse Delight has been noted working really well upsides such a decent Class One performer as Sterling Town and then when making all to win a trial down the straight 1,000-metre course.
