Spare a thought for Italian sensation Matteo Manassero, who was part of the golfing crowd that made its annual jaunt to the racing at Happy Valley. At 17 years old and still living with his parents, the Italian is still too young to place a bet, or even take in a beer - unlike the thousands of others gathered in the Valley's popular beer garden. But Manassero has a head start when it comes to golf, with a fine three-under 67 after the first round.
