Caspar Fownes may have missed the lion's share of the Derby prize but a double in the support races maintained the stable's excellent momentum and left him just four wins shy of John Size in the race for his second trainers' championship. Fownes won race six with Famagusta and race nine with Bouncer and each of them looks like a horse with an even bigger contribution to make. Douglas Whyte had his first ride on Bouncer in the Class Three mile, with previous winning jockey Christophe Soumillon unable to get near the handicap weight of 115 pounds, and the Durban Demon emerged suitably impressed. 'The pace was faster than we expected so I was happy to sit a couple of lengths further back than Caspar had asked me to be,' Whyte said. 'He does know how to stick his neck out at the end of a race and I do think that when he gets over further, you'll see quite a progressive horse.' Brett Prebble is a huge fan of Famagusta and said however impressive anyone thinks the four-year-old might have been, there's a lot more in the tank that hasn't been tapped yet. 'I've had a bit of experience with these Lord Ballina horses and they are late maturers - you don't see the best of them until they are five and six,' Prebble said. 'So what he's doing now, it's all just learning. He's switching on and off, not concentrating fully. And I'd like to be riding him a bit further back than he's been at his last couple of starts as well. 'But for all that, he's still winning so you'd have to say he's a pretty smart horse in the making,' he added. Before the nightmare of Sacred Kingdom's unlucky run descended on him, Gerald Mosse had turned in a perfect display of patient riding with a last-to-first swoop on Sean Woods' Agility in race three. 'The pace was a lot stronger than we had figured and from a wide barrier, I crossed to the back of the field and took my time,' Mosse said. 'Once we turned for home, and I got him to the outside and let him balance, he stretched out very well for me and finished it off strongly.' The win continues a renaissance for Woods, with the British horseman having now prepared 13 winners for the season, which sees him safely over the line for the Jockey Club's trainer-performance criteria. Michael Chang Chun-wai got himself on the wrong side of officialdom but fortunately had already led in a winner to more than cover the HK$5,000 fine levelled at him on a misconduct charge. Chang won the opening race with Simply Joy (Olivier Doleuze), who claimed a bob-of-the-head victory over Multi-Win Spirit in the Class Five contest. Later on, Chang got frustrated with the misbehaving Touch Lucky, who was very fractious in his saddling stall and Chang was moved to administer some physical discipline to the gelding. Stewards' eyes are everywhere and Chang found himself charged with having 'misconducted himself', in the words of the official report, by 'kicking Touch Lucky in the vicinity of the chest'.
