Outsider Toy Baron might well have won last night's penultimate event but for meeting severe interference just as they swung into the final bend in this Class Five, 1,800-metre contest.

The Andy Leung-trained galloper jumped one of the outsiders of the field but he was slicing through them only to be stopped as Bordeaux shifted back to the rail in the backwash of some scrimmaging out wider.

Mind you until then apprentice Martin C.K. Tsang had enjoyed a charmed run up the inside of a number of senior riders and his luck would have had to have been in for further inside runs to keep presenting themselves.

Toy Baron must have lost four lengths and did well to get going again and finish strongly just on the heels of the placegetters as Dream Team prevailed.

Toy Baron, visored for the first time last night, is better known as a Class Six galloper but on this evidence he is more than worth following again in Class Five. LCW
