CHAIRMAN'S SPRINT PRIZE TRACKWORK


MR STUNNING – HK

Galloped over 800m on the main all-weather track, clocking 57.4s (31.5, 25.9).
Trainer John Size said: “He’s done well at home, he looks good, he seems to be fit and healthy so hopefully he runs well again.”

LUCKY BUBBLES – HK

Breezed over 400m on the Sha Tin all-weather track in 29.2s.
Trainer Francis Lui said: “This time, I’ve been trying to keep him fresh because he didn’t quite look the same last time out. So this morning, we took it easy with him. He looks well, but at this time, I can’t say how he’s going to run on Sunday, I just don’t know. We’ve made a couple of changes just to try and freshen the horse’s mind. After Sunday, we will give him a long break and hope that helps him, he is not a big horse. Of course it is disappointing that he has not yet won a Group 1, he is good enough, but surely it will come for him – he is a top horse.”

AMAZING KIDS – HK

Took to the Sha Tin all-weather track for a relaxed 800m gallop in 59.4s (33.5, 25.9).
Trainer John Size said: “On the outside, he looks OK, we will only find out race day though if he’s taken any harm from the Dubai trip. He hasn’t shown us anything to suggest we shouldn’t be running. It was an ordinary trial last Tuesday but he’s done that many times and come out and won.”

NOT LISTENIN’TOME – HK

Sent down the Sha Tin riverside, completing 800m in 47.4s (25.3, 22.1).
Trainer John Moore said: “Not Listenin’tome enjoys going out by himself, just an easy gallop over 800m. He was cajoled early to make sure he got right into the bridle quickly.”

BLIZZARD – HK

Cantered one lap of the small all-weather track.
Trainer Ricky Yiu said: “He worked early this morning. He’s as good as I can get him for this race.”

THEWIZARDOFOZ – HK

Completed one lap of the inner all-weather track at a canter under assistant trainer Frankie Lor.
Trainer John Size said: “The most pleasing thing about his first-up effort was the way he went home after the race. He has done very well and the race has brought him on.”

DASHING FELLOW – HK

Worked down the Sha Tin riverside over 800m in 46.5s (23.9, 22.6) under big-race rider Sam Clipperton.
Clipperton said: “Dashing Fellow had a jumpout from the gates, just to keep him sharp. He’s in a very tough race on the weekend. He’s honest though and if this bit of rain hangs around, that would help his cause.”
