07/03/02 Size's Premiership Charge Continues in Hong Kong
Former leading Sydney trainer John Size is continuing his charge up the premiership table in Hong Kong by climbing to fifth place overnight.

With a winning double at the Happy Valley meeting last night Size brought up winner number 30, to be just eight behind the ladder leader Tony Cruz.

Size is now just one win behind fellow Australian trainer David Hayes. The early premiership leader, Hayes has 31 wins, two fewer than Ivan Allan (33) and the same as Derek Cruz (31).

The first of the wins last night for Size came when South Australian jockey Dwayne Dunn rode home Winmark to win the fourth race of the card, the Rambler Channel Class 4 Handicap (1650m).

Winmark, a New Zealand bred by Yachtie, was too strong for Country Dragon winning by a half length. Fellow Aussie hoop Michael Cahill was third in the same race aboard Viking Dancer.

Size's double was completed two races later when Shane Dye guided Darwin home to win the Lei Yeu Mun Handicap (1650m) for Class Three gallopers.

A son of Defensive Play, Darwin bolted in by three and a quarter lengths over Longmark.

Dwayne Dunn came close to giving David Hayes a winner on the card when the Hayes trained Crocker finished second in the final race on the seven event program. The Yui trained and Saint-Martin ridden Victory Marble won the last by a half length.

Eric Saint-Martin finished then night with a lucky pick up double. Saint-Martin won the fifth event aboard the Tony Cruz trained Super Fast (beating Michael Cahill's mount Glory Hero by three quarters of a length) as well as the last after picking up the rides when leading rider Weichong Marwing was indisposed.

Shane Dye remains locked together with Marwing on 36 wins, nine fewer than the premiership leader Douglas Whyte (45). Dwayne Dunn is sixth with 24 wins, only one behind the fifth placed Robbie Fradd (25).

Fradd is one of two riders currently suspended as investigations continue into local corruption.
