Like a cricket batsmen in the nervous nineties, trainer John Moore has been wearing away steadily rather than spectacularly at landing his 1,000th winner, with victories seemingly tough to find in recent weeks. But, needing two more for his four figures, Moore (pictured) might be able to do it tonight, though he has only a handful of runners. Shortest-priced of them is going to be Master Gunner (Darren Beadman) in race six, where he has the benefit of barrier one and he could be win number 1,000 if Famous Dancer ($54), Sounds Best ($170) (both race three) or Rewarding Star ($46, race four) can do the right thing. Master Gunner ($25) has improved with every run, and while the three-year-old had his chance to win behind Add The Fun last time, he has more scope for improvement yet. Canadian jockey Emma-Jayne Wilson will get a chance to lodge a winner at Happy Valley, even as she prepares to leave Hong Kong, after requesting a termination of her licence. Wilson made the request at Sunday's Hong Kong Derby meeting to cut her contract short after her main stable in Toronto sent word that she is required earlier than first expected to prepare horses for the resumption of racing on April 5. Wilson's licence is scheduled to run until April 2, but she has asked to have her contract terminated after Monday's Easter meeting. Wilson has not yet ridden a winner during her time here, but has had a number of placings and teams up again with a lightweight hope in Nasa Pearl ($68) for the featured Ireland Cup (1,800m) tonight. Wilson was aboard Nasa Pearl two starts ago in a similar Class Three race when a handy fourth to dead-heaters Mastery and Viva Fighter with Prime Target third. Mastery ($180) and Prime Target ($64) have claims in the race again tonight. Nasa Pearl didn't do anything negative for that form with a close second in Class Four at Sha Tin since, and will get a suitable tempo with his light weight.
