At this stage, they are all key meetings but Wednesday night's all-weather card looks a significant moment in the trainers' championship and Caspar Fownes looks set to get the best of it in the final race withGun Pit in the Venus Handicap (1,650m), reports the HK Racing Poat (

A rare night without a race above Class Three or a trophy event tells us that things are winding down but the trainers' title is the remaining query over the season as pacemaker John Size tries to fend off the finish of Fownes.

Fownes has a strong six-runner team at the fixture as he seeks to bridge the two-win gap, rounded out with promising three-year-old Gun Pit (Zac Purton), who faces off with Size-trained Golden Addiction (Joao Moreira).

Gun Pit comes back quickly after his authoritative win over the course two weeks ago under Tommy Berry, when Purton couldn't make the weight.

He rises sharply in the weights this time - good for Purton, not as good for Gun Pit's winning prospects - but the manner of his victory and the fast time and sectionals he ran both suggest he is up to the task.

It's an odd-looking sort of race, with a number of runners likely to want a forward role but no regular leader, so whoever lands in front may be there reluctantly and trying to steady the ship.

That will help the horses with a turn of foot and Gun Pit fits that bill nicely, quickening last start to run home strongly, even coming off a very decent pace. That is his edge over Goldland Dancer (Karis Teetan), who won the same night and posted much faster sectionals but in a very slowly run race. His final time was the best part of two seconds slower than Gun Pit's, and flattered the finishing sprint.

The biggest danger looks Golden Addiction, who probably should have gone closer at Happy Valley last time when an early squeeze ensured he wasn't in a position to be a winning factor.
