John Size has been more than his usual laid-back self over the past few meetings.

This looks to change dramatically at the Chinese New Year meeting on Tuesday and which also sees the return to the saddle of champion jockey Douglas Whyte who has been serving out a three day suspension.

Size, regarded by many as the best trainer in town who stays away from the limelight and lets his successes speak for themselves, has a history of doing well at this auspicious meeting in the racing calendar.

With Whyte back riding for him and impressive last start winner Sea Dragon amongst his artillery of equine talent set to fire on Wednesday afternoon at Shatin, John Size looks all set to start the Year of the Snake with a rattle and hum.

As for Douglas Whyte, now trailing Zac Purton by four in the Jockeys Premiership, this meeting could be an important game changer and where he can easily bang in a brace of winners.
