Teetan's Convincible
07 Sep 2017 | By David Morgan - hkjc.com 

Convincible justified 2.7 favouritism in the finale at Happy Valley on Wednesday night, the Class 2 Yau Oi Handicap (1200m), and snagged 15 series points, too. That was enough to convince jockey Karis Teetan that the gelding’s win streak might not be over: Francis Lui’s charge sealed a hat-trick, having closed out last season with two wins on the bounce.

 

 

Convincible and Karis Teetan win the finale, the Class 2 Yau Oi Handicap.

 

“He does everything right, he puts everything in and he’s got a bit of turbo, so I expect him to continue going forward,” Teetan said.

 

“He’s taken time to adapt and build confidence, he’s a big horse and it’s taken a bit of time to get his momentum going. He’s been improving a lot and I think Francis did the right thing giving him a rest after his last run in June – he’d done a lot and he’s come back even better.”

 

That win completed a double for rider and trainer, Teetan having landed the fourth, the Class 4 Oi Man Handicap (1000m), on the David Ferraris-trained Dr Race. Lui took the fifth with Fox Sunter.

 

Champion jockey Joao Moreira was atop Fox Sunter in the Class 4 Sheung Tak Handicap (1200m) but the “Magic Man” had to get busy on the hot 1.8 favourite, driving hard to hold on for a neck verdict.

 

The Brazilian ace enjoyed an easier ride when Thunder Stomp scooted clear for a three lengths win in the seventh, the Class 3 Shun Lee Handicap (1650m). That ensured Me Tsui’s charge was another that took a maximum 15 points in the Hong Kong Airlines Million Challenge.
