RACE TWO
Mr Wong defied a late drift to race away and take out the TAB Highway (1100 metres) in impressive fashion.
The son of Mossman went $3.70-$4.40 in the final stages of betting but still retained favouritism from money horse Velvet Aeroplane ($6.50-$4.80).
In fact Velvet Aeroplane held more money than Mr Wong with the pair dominating the market. They were responsible for 60 percent of the total investment.

RACE THREE
Favourite backers were on the mark in the second of the TAB Highway (1100 metres) events this afternoon.
Hellenism jumped a $3.20 favourite after being $2.70 in the morning but despite the late drift, she was easily the best backed runner in the race with nearly 33 percent of the money riding on her.
Conspirator ($4.80) was the subject of a good betting move and was best tried to beat the fav. Of the others, Blitzar ($5) had admirers as did Mr Aloysius ($11-$8).
BETS: Hellenism $4,000 @ $3.40
BETS: Conspirator $1,000 @ $5

Matowi ($3.70) was well backed today after being $4.40 in the morning while Dabiyr ($2.60-$2.90) was a drifter late in betting.

RACE FIVE
A sensational betting move late for Mugatoo paid dividends in The Coopers Hotel Newtown Handicap (1600 metres).
The Kris Lees-trained import opened the day at $3 and was crunched in the final 30 minutes of betting, eventually jumping a $2.15 favourite.
Having his first run in Australia, the gelding commanded 51 percent of the total investment.
Valentino Rossa ($11), which opened $51 on Wednesday, was still well backed today at eachway odds while Toryjoy ($7) had admirers at the price.
All Too Soon ($7.50-$4.80-$5) saw a move come for it an hour prior to the jump but that fizzled out closer to the jump.
