Dragon Inn appears a rejuvenated horse since joining the stable of Me Tsui Yu-sak and he looks set to make up for a luckless first-up performance in the opening leg of Monday's Triple Trio at Sha Tin. With the TT only being won for half a ticket on Wednesday, the main prize on offer is expected to reach HK$11 million and Dragon Inn is set to give punters a walk-up start with Douglas Whyte taking the reins for the first time. Dragon Inn arrived in Hong Kong after showing promise in winning two from four in New Zealand, but he struggled to reproduce that form in his first 19 appearances here, with his rating tumbling from 65 points to a measly 15 and compulsory retirement looked imminent. However, after being luckless three starts back at his debut for the Tsui stable, he looked a transformed horse in scoring a runaway win over the minimum trip at Happy Valley and his career was saved with a rating hike of 13 points. The six-year-old resumed at Sha Tin on September 9, but his chances looked forlorn when he was checked out of the barriers and settled back in the field, three wide with cover. He showed good heart once peeling to the outside in the straight to finish second to all-the-way winner Silly Boy. Although Dragon Inn's local record beyond 1,200m doesn't read too well, his two New Zealand wins were achieved at the 1,400m trip. The hardest to beat will be Cop Hill Lad, Vital Patrol, Withallmyheart, and Multi-Win Spirit, with the potential improver being King Palm with no weight on his back. The middle pin looks tough, but the safest banker option is probably race-fit Thunder Valley. The David Hall-trained gelding opened the season with a sound course and distance performance before having excuses last start when fifth to Deminer as he was caught wide for the entire journey. He should press forward from gate 11 to be on the speed and will prove the one to run down, with thedangers likely to come from Ferro Beau, Diaghilev, King Creole and Natural Fatchoy. In the final leg, it's impossible to go past capable course and distance performer Galbraith when searching for a banker. The Andrea Schutz-trained gelding won his first two attempts down the straight track before failing to handle rain-affected conditions last time. He has shown himself to be in terrific order in two lead-up trials and he should be able to bounce back to his best. Other worthy inclusions are Plezayre, who is backing up from Wednesday, Always Giggle, Silent Dragon, Cosmo Successor and Sure Joy.
