Trainer Caspar Fownes is confident Young Elite can bounce back from a bleeding attack and stamp himself a force to be reckoned with at the top level when he lines up in the Group One Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup (1,400m) on Sunday. Fownes has mapped out a top-grade campaign for his potential-filled galloper, who has won six of his 12 starts, and will race him in the Group Two Chairman's Trophy (1,600m) on April 4, before targeting the Champions Mile at Sha Tin on April 25. 'It is nice to get Young Elite back to the races. He has been scoping up good after his work and, as long as everything stays well internally, I have no doubt he can match it with the best,'' Fownes said. Young Elite hasn't raced since the Group Two International Cup Trial (2,000m) last November, but Fownes is hopeful he can get his career back on track by surprising some of the most popular gallopers in the Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup. It has been a bogey race for favourites recently with Good Ba Ba beaten by Egyptian Ra last year and Sacred Kingdom downed by Good Ba Ba in 2008. Fownes (pictured) conceded Happy Zero and Egyptian Ra would be hard to topple - but he is not going to hand the trophy to the 'big boys' without a fight. 'He ran very well first-up at the start of the season over the mile, albeit in a lesser race, while 1,400 metres is probably a bit short of his ideal distance against the big boys like Happy Zero and Egyptian Ra, I expect he'll be closing off well with the light weight on his back,' Fownes said. 'He is a horse with real potential and I think he will be right up to that level this preparation if he remains well.' New Zealand jockey Shane Dye will partner Young Elite and got a good feel for the galloper when he steered him around in a trial on the all-weather track at Sha Tin last Friday. In addition to the unbeaten Fair Trade, Fownes also has Super Satin, Beauty Legend, and Grand Dragon contesting the HK$16 million Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby on Sunday.
