KUNG HEI FAT CHOY left his previous efforts behind when landing a maiden by seven lengths on his Fibresand debut last week. A 6lb penalty may not be enough to anchor him with further progress likely on this surface and he can round off what may turn out to be a very successful day for jockey Graham Lee. Orpen Wide showed a bit more when third over track and trip but that was back in April and Smart Affair makes more appeal on last week's second to Daddy Warbucks at this track. Hilbre Court has claims if taking part but was engaged to run at yesterday's meeting here.
