Trainer Sean Woods was ready to do the two-step after Fantastic Dancer won race five, but the continuing rain stopped him breaking into a full-blown foxtrot as King Dancer failed in the muddy conditions of the Group One Champions & Chater Cup. Fantastic Dancer built on his last-start victory to claim the Money Talks Handicap at Class Three level - a result that had Woods hopeful of a big afternoon. 'It was very pleasing to see him go on from his last win and his light weight and the soft ground really suited him perfectly today,' Woods said. 'As for King Dancer, he just didn't go a yard in the wet - it was very disappointing.' Fantastic Dancer's jockey Jeff Lloyd was also pleased to pick up the lightweight ride. 'Actually I'm pleased that he was able to win because I did think he would make it in Class Three,' Lloyd said. 'He wasn't completely happy in the ground, but having said that we had a lovely run and with the light weight he was able to keep going'.
