Dylan Mo chose Halloween to banish the ghosts of a frustrating October and helped himself to a quickfire double aboard New Zealand-bred horses Viva Council and Flying Godspell in separate divisions of the Tin Ha Shan Handicap (1200m)
Peter Ho's Viva Council became the third all-the-way winner in a row, but the trend towards front runners was broken when Flying Godspell came from just behind the lead to force his head in front close home.
Mo is now on seven winners for the season after a quiet spell stretching back for four weeks, while Flying Godspell's handler Jimmy Ting was recording the 14th success of his excellent rookie season.
"Flying Godspell was running with his head high so I tried him with a shadow roll when he galloped," said Ting.
"Dylan said it helped him in the morning and I think it has helped him show some improvement tonight." -HKJC
