Gary Ng Ting-keung improved his new season results by 50 per cent in the space of a single afternoon, starting the Boxing Day fixture with four wins alongside his name but adding a well-backed double courtesy of Withallmyheart and Classic King. Ng may never trouble the premiership contenders but he gets a lot of respect in the industry for the accuracy of his opinion, with that judgment underlined again yesterday after Withallmyheart won easily as a heavily-bet $51 second favourite (he ultimately paid $48.50 because of the deduction applied to late scratching Dongguan Victory). Later in the day, Classic King came with a well-timed burst under the guidance of Olivier Doleuze to take the seventh event, the Mount Parker Handicap (1,800m) after being supported from $260 into $155.50. Classic King has a history of soundness problems but Ng is a master with such animals. He spares them the daily trackwork grind, uses a lot of swimming and light work to get them fit and then lets racing take care of the rest. And so it has been with Classic King this term. The Kaapstad gelding had raced three times leading up to this performance and Ng knew it was time to call the flamboyant Frenchman back to duty. 'Classic King goes very well for Olivier, so when I thought he was in a race he could win I definitely wanted him to ride the horse,' Ng explained. 'I thought he had done well, and he was at a position in the racings where he could win. 'It's true, he has had a lot of leg problems, but we manage it,' he added. Doleuze said he was happy at the rear of the field because the pace up front, set by veteran Barracuda, was genuine. 'He relaxed nicely for me back there and with the speed so genuine, I was quite happy,' Doleuze said. 'I rode him [one run back] at Happy Valley and he went OK - not too bad - and I thought with the fitness benefit from that run, that maybe he was a chance today. 'But the race broke well for me and he kept going in the final 200 metres while the leader was only battling away at the one pace.' Withallmyheart's win in the Robin's Nest Handicap (1,400m) for the cellar dwellers was scarcely out of turn. The five-year-old gelding boasted the woeful figures of one win from 37 attempts going into this event and that lone victory had been over 1,000 metres from an inside gate at Happy Valley. 'He's been racing a bit too keenly in his races, so we were lucky today that he got a leader [Perfect Athlete] who went along at a good speed and that helped him settle better,' Ng continued. 'I've always thought he had the ability to be able to win races at the bottom of Class Four with a light weight. 'I thought he was as fit as I could have him today, and thankfully it all worked out well and he's given the owner [Lily Scheng Hsi-feng] a nice win.'
