CHAIRMAN'S SPRINT PRIZE TRACKWORK


PENIAPHOBIA – HK

Cantered one lap of the small all-weather track.
Big-race jockey Neil Callan said: “He looks good in the morning. He’s been running well, his form’s good and he’s running against the same horses again. I’ve ridden him in his last three and he’s run two monster races, winning a Group 2 and running a cracker last time behind Mr Stunning – the 1000m race was just a blow-out.”

STRATHMORE – HK

Took to the small all-weather track for two laps under track rider Beverly Millard.
Sunday’s rider Derek Leung said: “I gave him a good blow-out, a good gallop last weekend. It was only over 800m with a quick last 400m so it was not too hard, but it was enough to give him a test because he’s a bit lazy in the mornings. He’s fit and well. We are hoping now for a good barrier so we can put him somewhere handy, ahead of midfield, take him to the outside and hopefully he can finish strongly. It is very exciting for me to get a ride like this, he has a chance. Even his last run, he ran second carrying 131lb, which is quite tough. Now, he drops to 126lb, so it should be better for him.”

Trackwork videos will be available by noon the day after.
