Easy Breeze

Neil Callan
Neil Callan gets his fourth win of the season on Kiram.

Gentle Breeze has now won three of his last four races after striding two and three quarter lengths clear of his rivals in the Class 3 Lockhart Handicap (1000m) at Happy Valley last night, Wednesday, 6 November.

“It was a big race, he was still quite well-handicapped by the looks of it so hopefully he doesn’t go up too many points,” jockey Matthew Chadwick said of the Ricky Yiu-trained five-year-old.

Play To Win was the evening’s longshot winner. Benno Yung’s charge lifted late for jockey Derek Leung to take section 3 of the Class 4 Harbour Handicap (1200m) at odds of 55/1.

Neil Callan got the job done on another old-timer, the David Ferraris-trained Kiram, in the Class 4 LAWASIA Cup Handicap (1650m). The eight-year-old enjoyed a sweet run from gate one, tracking the leader, and galloped unchecked for a game rail-running third win at his 57th start.

Wonderful Tiger took 28 runs to nail his first Hong Kong win but the Chris So-trained five-year-old made it two on the bounce at start 29. Karis Teetan produced the 12/1 shot from the tail with a relentless wide run down the straight to land the Class 5 Fleming Handicap (1650m).

What A legend broke his maiden at the ninth attempt with a comfortable two and a quarter-length score in the opener, section two of the Class 4 Harbour Handicap (1200m). The win took Umberto Rispoli to three for the term and put trainer Jimmy Ting on nine.
