Champion's Way on the way

He's running in the G3 Lion Rock at Sha Tin Sunday and as a 3yo John Size his trainer hopes he will head to next season's Derby.

That will come as Race 9 on today's card of 11 races plus the Yasuda Kinen plus the French Derby.  Joao Moreira, who got off his sick bed to ride at Happy Valley on Wednesday night came home with the best cure of all - a 4-timer.  He's riding Champion's Way in this and at present the quote is 2.6.  Ka-ying Star is one of trainer Tony Cruz's favourotes and with Vincent Ho on board they are currently next best on 4.00.  Simply Brilliant has the Franke Lor - Zac Purton combo in his corner and is on 5.7.

There's a get-out in Race 11 a Class 2 over 1200m.  Flying Thunder is on 3.4, and we think Team Spirit and Refined Treasure both on around 12.0 could be value.
