TONY P. H. Chan's great second season continued at Sha Tin yesterday when his filly, Amorace, made all for a tenacious neck victory in the second event. The Australian import had only modest form before coming to Hong Kong but she has grown a leg since joining Chan and never looked like being caught in the straight as local rider Johnny Ho brought her home a length to the good of a determined Goldchin Champ. For Chan it was win number 12 and how different things look for him from this healthy perspective, well up in the trainer standings, compared to earlier in the season when the heat was really on. The former champion jockey enjoyed a luckless start to the term when he had placing after placing but winners proved elusive. Horses began to dribble from his yard but before the trickle could become a torrent, he banged in a remedial treble at Happy Valley and hasn't looked back since. Ivan Allan's Jharna jumped a well-backed favourite after a hat-trick of wins but a 13-pound rise in the ratings, following his last-start defeat of Ever The Best, proved his undoing. Walter Swinburn brought him with a well-timed challenge with 300 metres to run but he could only stay on at one pace for third. Schnitzer ran fourth but appeared to hang when first put under pressure which didn't help his chances. Phantasy Way indicated that he is coming back to his best form of last season by staying on well down the centre of the track and there was a much better effort from Brian Kan Ping-chee's Sunnyland. Golden Luck was wide on the home bend but he found little when initially asked for an effort shortly after they turned in.
