Frankie Lor Fu-chuen has already matched his highest-ever total of 65 winners with a quarter of the season remaining and a first trainers’ championship is firmly in his sights.

Lor sits alongside John Size at the top of the table and he heads into Sunday’s Sha Tin meeting with a handful of chances to improve his tally.

Looking Great tackles just four rivals in the Group Three Queen Mother Memorial Cup (2,400m) and is guaranteed some decent prize money as he steps up to this distance for the first time, but the five-year-old has plenty to find on ratings against the likes of Butterfield and Senor Toba.

“There’s not much choice for the longer-distance horses in Class Two so I thought I’d try,” Lor said. “He’s got a light weight, there’s only five runners and he’s in good form, so anything can happen.”

Lor unleashes newcomer Keefy in one of the most intriguing races on the Sha Tin card, the first section of the Class Three Game Spirit Handicap (1,200m).

The Australian import should not be lacking in experience after running eight times in his native country and he has moved well in his trials, comfortably winning the latest over 1,200m on dirt at Sha Tin.

He faces a tough task on his Hong Kong debut against the unbeaten Buzzinga but is the chosen mount of Joao Moreira.

“He won over 1,600m in Australia,” Lor said. “I trialled him three times and Joao said he’s ready to go. I decided 1,200m would be suitable for him in his first start, he’s got some gate speed so hopefully he can jump and settle second, third or fourth.

“It’s a good race. Tony Cruz’s horse [Buzzinga] has two wins from two starts and looks a really good horse.”

Lor has another exciting youngster running on Sunday in the shape of Sakewin, who was an impressive winner of his only career start last time.

He will break from barrier four in the second section of the Game Spirit Handicap and has been raised nine ratings points for that last victory.

Lor lands a double to reach 300 winners and draw level with Size

“He’s up in class with a light weight and he’s got a good draw, so I think he’s still got a really good chance, Lor said.

As for Lor’s championship hopes, the trainer feels that young horses such as Sakewin and Keefy could prove crucial in the run home.

“Of course, my old boss [Size] usually has some young horses that can win three or four in a row, so I need to find some of those as well,” Lor said.
