If Joao Moreira wasn’t frustrated enough by white-hot favourite Pakistan Star unilaterally opting out of the Premier Plate on Sunday, a fine from the stewards for his whip use really rubbed salt into the wound. “I have never in my life had a good horse do something like that. Good horses normally do everything straightforward. But there is a contrast for you – the stewards think I rode him too hard and the crowd thinks I didn’t ride him hard enough, so what about that?...

It was fitting that Thewizardofoz was back to his best to spreadeagle the Group Three Premier Cup field on Sunday at Sha Tin and give John Size a new record for wins in a season, as the gelding has been a case study in the champion trainer’s patient ways. Size came into the meeting parked on 91 wins for the campaign, jointly holding the record for wins in a season with Tony Cruz’s 2004-05 year, but several chances came and went before Thewizardofoz (Joao Moreira) ticked him over to...
