John Moore’s pins hopes on Beauty Generation as Werther nears return

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26508706
John Moore has endured a disappointing season but is looking to Sunday’s spring features – and beyond – for a revival and on Tuesday floated the idea of an end of season trip to Japan for 2015-16 Horse of the Year Werther. Moore has won the Audemars Piguet QE II Cup fives times and the Champions Mile on six occasions, both records, but is down on his usual numbers as he tackles the two races in his third to last season as a trainer in Hong Kong. Beauty Generation has been a...

John Size’s Money Boy can run over the top of his rivals at Happy Valley

John Size’s Money Boy can run over the top of his rivals at Happy Valley

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26508466
Money Boy managed to pull a good effort out at Sha Tin last time out but he has preferred Happy Valley all season and should take some beating there on Wednesday night in the Korea Racing Authority Trophy (1,000m). The John Size-trained gelding has been super consistent, if a rare winner, and gets a race set-up that will really suit his run-on style. Four starts ago, Money Boy (Brett Prebble) swamped his rivals late to win a Class Three over the distance at Happy Valley and there are...

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26508343
Tommy Berry will make a race day decision on his health ahead of Happy Valley on Wednesday night after a heavy fall in a barrier trial on Tuesday, but the chance to reunite with top chance Sichuan Boss will provide some extra motivation. Berry hit the ground hard in a barrier trial incident at Sha Tin when Agree collapsed and died beneath him in the closing stages of a 1,200m trial on the all-weather track. The Australian walked away from the scary fall seemingly unscathed but was taken to...

Heroic Polish climbers announce second winter attempt on K2 for 2019-20 with a new team and tactics

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26507639
A heroic band of Polish mountaineers on Monday decided to launch a second attempt to climb K2 in winter, Michał Leksinski told the SCMP . The second expedition would take place in the winter of 2019-20, said Leksinski, head of PR for the expedition. They considered 2018-19, but decided there was not enough time. “One of the conclusions from the last expedition was that we need to be in base camp earlier,” he said. “The climbers need to be there by December 20, not mid-...

Rex Tso still suffering from blurred vision with date for return to boxing ring unknown

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26507455
Repeatedly squinting and blinking hard between camera flashes, Hong Kong boxer star Rex Tso Sing-yu is still struggling seven months after suffering a grotesque eye injury in his last fight. “I recently went for a check-up and it’s a bit better, but my left eye is still blurry,” said the 30-year-old undefeated southpaw (22-0-0, 13KOs) at a promotional event for restaurant chain Tai Hing’s new low-calorie menu on Tuesday. Visual acuity is measured on a scale with perfect...

Rugby fan Fraser Jamieson is looking forward to wearing his Scotsman in a kilt fancy dress costume and taking his two daughters to the Singapore Sevens this weekend. He told Singapore media that the only time he expected to see his daughters at the National Stadium is “when they run out of money for food”. If it were the Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, he might have substituted “food” with “booze”. Not only that, but Jamieson said he and his mates would...

Why are there small fields for the Group Ones on Champions Day?

Why are there small fields for the Group Ones on Champions Day?

24/04/2018, China, Multi Sports, China Publications, Article # 26507239
The small fields for the three Group Ones on Sunday are symptomatic of a changing landscape, both in the spread of quality animals but also the attitudes of owners and trainers. The Jockey Club has been hard hit by illnesses and injuries and weather for its numbers. The popular wisdom is Aidan O’Brien’s three invitees for the day were not actually planning to come and were window dressing, although we have sources who assert that couldn’t be more wrong and a brutal winter in...
