THERE is just no stopping trainer Frankie Lor at present.
The 53-year-old continues to be the punters’ friend, having landed another winning treble at Sha Tin last Sunday.
There is no doubt his stable is in red-hot form, with 10 winners and 10 places from his last 50 runners.
He looks certain to surpass last season’s record-breaking 65 winners as a rookie trainer, with 53 wins already on the scoresheet and over two months of the current season to go.
Lor is represented by a couple of runners at Happy Valley this afternoon and both can be given chances.
His main contender VINCY lines up in the finale at 3.50pm over the extended mile, but has so far proved expensive to follow since arriving in Hong Kong 18 months ago.
Half-a-dozen runs have yet to provide a win, although he is clearly talented, judged by placed efforts against better company than he meets here.
This time he is equipped with blinkers and has drawn the plum inside number, allowing him to get a dream journey along the rails.
He should be difficult to beat, especially with jockey Zac Purton turning down other rides in the race to partner him.
In the same contest, it might be worth having a saver on fast-improving GOD OF DRAGON who has looked a different horse since joining Tony Cruz’s stable at the beginning of last month.
He produced an eye-popping trial at the Valley recently, which augurs well for the future.
Lor’s other runner, Witness Hunter has a form chance in the 2.45pm, but is mapped to have a wide transit throughout the contest.
