The partnership of Perpetual Joyance and Karis Teetan struck for the third time this season, as they took home the Merlion Handicap at Happy Valley yesterday evening.

All three of Perpetual Joyance's wins have come with the Mauritian jockey on board, and it was another impressive ride from the Mauritian jockey which earned the latest win, as he accelerated brilliantly to hunt down and catch You Read My Mind (K.K.Chiong) at the finish.

Perpetual Joyance also gave Karis Teetan whis 8th victory from 37 rides for trainer John Size. The latter seems set to become Champion trainer, while the former now sits in 7th place in the Jockeys' standings.
