BOWL OF CHILLIS 1

While the current jockey shortage through falls, injuries and some very very long suspensions for Chad Schofield and Nash Rawiller are being discussed with many putting forward their own suggestions how to remedy these problems- suspensions by the same riders cannot be allowed to carry on without something being done to stop the epidemic- the good news is the brilliant race card for Shatin this afternoon.

Can it really get any better? Of course it will during the upcoming Hong Kong International Races, but the tacos featured this afternoon before the whole enchilada is 24K gold, amigos.

BOWL OF CHILLIS 2

So many good horses, so many questions to answer. Will we see Able Friend and Aerovelocity make brilliant comebacks? Why did Joao Moreira choose Military Attack over Eastern Express? We all know that Caspar Fownes has put heart and soul and his entire team into getting this former champion galloper as fit as possible. And the Magic Man has that third eye to know when a horse is ready and to call for the ride and get on it with a cheery, “Muchos Gracias!”. Have you ever seen a happier jockey? Even when he loses?

Other questions: Will Mr Stunning be able to live up to his name after months away from the track? Will we see so-called “hype” galloper Pakistan Star produce something mesmerising again? Or will the gelding named Lucky Girl lead him and all the other muchachos a merry chase? It’s all fascinating stuff and a real battle of equine talent with the riders almost being side players.

Matty Chadwick, no doubt extremely happy not to have suffered an injury on Wednesday which would have ruled him out of riding Pakistan Star, was extremely candid when quizzed about how he planned to ride this truly enigmatic three-year-old galloper: “He’s a very intelligent horse. It’s really up to him whether he wants to jump with the field, or relax and then decide what he wants to do”. Horses, they’re fascinating animals. And characters. Let’s now all dance just for the hell of it.
