deserves a thread now, such a good honest horse
He's still in the guineas next week, wonder if they'll back him up?

The horse looks a weighted special this Saturday... what price would Impending / Divine Prophet be in this field? Think he is being underated here with a lot of hype behind the Sydney horses... took $5.5!

Have to agree SYT. He's very underrated. Even in the Stutt stakes I couldn't believe he started around the $6-$7 mark and won with ease.

Looks an each way bet to nothing when $2 the place is offered.

I tend to agree SYT but the query I have is the barrier. All his best races he has settled midfieldish but from that barrier I can see him being snagged and having to make up a bit of ground in the straight. I haven't done a speed map yet but if had had drawn better I would be all over him like a fat kid on a cup cake.


Posted By: Bonfield
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 8:59am
Very keen on the horse. He's my best bet for the day. Personally I don't mind the barrier because it means he will have clear running.

I agree he's been underrated this entire preparation. Don't quite know why. He has a very good trainer. Maybe the unfashionable jockey?

I like him and there doesn't appear to be a lot of speed in the race so you would assume he will go forward. Hope I am right because the 1600m start at Flemington is not a place you want to be posted wide.


Posted By: Bonfield
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:27am
Yeah, you don't want to get posted 3 wide into the breeze at Flemington. But there are only 12 runners and the can go forward or back. Always need luck in running whether drawn the outside or the inside.


Posted By: Bonfield
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:28am
Unless one of these Sydney horses really steps up, I think he can sit 3 wide and still win.


Posted By: James
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:30am
11 runners now. The 12 is scratched.


Posted By: James
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:33am
Acatour and Mortons Fork will be behind him in the run and I think he should have them covered. Bezel is the one that interests me as he has the profile of a horse that could improve but I don't bet on potential.


Posted By: Bonfield
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:37am
That was a very good scratching. No deductions and brings him in to 11.Smile


Posted By: Red Hare
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:37am
Yeah, barrier not ideal... I jumped in to the all-in price at $5 for a few doubles, but will be going again if the market keeps pushing these Sydney horses.

I give Bezel a good chance, just on where he's likely to be in the run, but the price for Comin' Through is ridiculous.


Posted By: Aurelius
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:38am
Backed him his last two starts.

Welcome into the Bandwagon, I will give you an accurate assessment of his chances this week later in the day.

Comin' Through not hopeless but I question why Walker would be riding it and not Bowman.

Looks well in - Hey Doc.

Anyone done a speed map?

I took the $41 Mt Panorama & he just about wins it last start (along with a few other unlucky ones).

Have a look at his run. 


Posted By: Aurelius
Date Posted: 27 Oct 2016 at 9:49am
Speed Map; They will run around 1.37.0 if there is no breeze to contend with and a good track.
Don't worry about what happens in between time.

Not a fast run race, hope they all haven't trained off.

I may be wrong but I don't think Bowman was offered the ride. I think Walker was always the choice down there due to his relationship with the owners via Criterion.

Different class ... stick with the Doc!

His only "failure" has been his 3rd in what looks like being a strong renewal of the Caulfied Guineas.

What price would either of the quinella be in this?

Grab the overs!Thumbs Up 

Certainly a nice race, and some up and comers in Bezel, Mortons Fork, Comin Through and Violate all in the exotics ... Hey Doc is the "banker" though.

With all the love for the Doc expect him to continue to firm. So far $5.50 to $4.60.

Have backed The Doc at his last two starts;

A Win at the Valley and last start where he could of won a group one with a better run in transit.

A very tough horse which you need to be a Flemington.

I ain't deserting you now Doc, please bring me the chocolate's again.

Sorry Doc made a spelling mistake and am going to have to cash you out.

Morton's Fork should romp in if he handles Flemington.

With due respect, reckon Morton's Forked.

Have Hey Doc on top with Bez the danger.

No doubt the Doc is flying unfortunetly it is time to get
off not on as he is a victim of his own success and is carrying 58kg.

MF is bursting at the seams carrying 56.

The 1600m gives some others the chance to catch up to him, he's a ripper 1400m horse imo.

Ducked in again when clear in front , still a little immature will race on no doubt(gelding ) as a  4 and 5yo . Duporths seem quite sound , 1400 seems his go a race like the Straddie might be a nice race for him next year , serious horse when fully mature .

Superb horse, honest as anything and a gun ride from Luke Currie, but a g1 Guineas is a totally different ball game. Hopefully for Tony's sake, this horse is the banner horse for his stable that Alpine Eagle pretended to be.

Thought the same thing. 1600m may just take the edge off him

McEvoy also had a Duporth win on debut  this week in SA , cant think of it's name but was nommed for the big Autumn races , is a must follow in SA , I'm just happy to have my mare in foal to him as I feel he is very underrated and still can pull good money at the sales on type . Not sure why his  Half to Extreme Choice isn't named yet , might be a handy one debut in the coming weeks in Melb also .

Table of Wisdom ?


Posted By: The Gooch

I think the 1600m might be the top of his range but let's not forget he loomed to win the Caulfield Guineas after covering ground. Beaten less than a length into 3rd. Gets the same run as Divine Prophet and he's the winner...

In the Carbine Club he was ridden upside down. Firmly the one to beat but Land of Plenty looks the big danger after being 3 wide today and he will certainly be suited by the 1600m.

He's still strangely underrated. Gave them weight and beat them easily. Level weights next time in, didn't look like 1600 would be a problem.

Hey Doc and Land of Plenty are the ones I want to be on with the race only 2 weeks away. Managed to get set at $6 on Hey Doc this morning and took $51 for Land of Plenty before his last run.

Really deserved that, this bloke. Just a proper racehorse. May have been advantaged by the draw but don't think he enjoyed racing down there on the rails- pulled quite badly. Plenty of merit in the win and peach of a ride. Thank you L Currie.

I would've thought the Straddy would be more his go. Not saying he can't run a mile, just noting that he's real good at 1400.


Posted By: The Gooch
Date Posted: 05 Mar 2017 at 8:48pm
I was on at $5.50 yesterday and really like the horse but no way I would have him in a Donny. Agree with James that the Aus Guineas was his race and he did have every conceivable thing in his favour yesterday I feel. I think a tough Randwick Mile against the older horses will sort him out, plus he's never raced in Sydney.

Think 1400m is his best trip. Maybe keep him reasonably fresh and target the All Aged if it doesn't look that strong?

May have a bit of trouble handling Le Romain for starters over a mile , still you have a handicapper to balance things out.fwiw.


Posted By: Bonfield

Not tipping him to win the Doncaster. It's a hard race to win with lots of chances. But I don't see why he can't win it. I also can't see why he can't run 2000m. If he starts in the Alister Clark Stakes we will find out. If he wins that then he's a big Doncaster chance. I'm on at $61.


Posted By: Bonfield
Date Posted: 06 Mar 2017 at 5:16am
But I also agree the AG was his target race and has a challenge to maintain his form to the Donnie. He did peak at his 4th run last prep and raced poorly at his 5th.

All over him in the Guineas but leave me out of the Doncaster at current price.

His current nominations are for the Newmarket , highly unlikely, and the Doncaster , possibility .

Looks a stronger horse this time in , I'd have a throw at the Donny , normally a strongly run race which will suit, as he still didn't settle for the initial 500 metres of the Guineas

Trainer Tony McEvoy says they won't run Hey Doc again before the Doncaster Mile. If he doesn't make it then 3YO will be off to paddock.

I would agree Khan, but he has probably been a sprinter all along.

Very ordinary race really.     They didn't go like lightening early and 5 of the 8 races ran much faster final 600's.     Overall time not very impressive either.        .   Mystery?    
Throw the form guides out the window.

There are form guides for sprint races?

I wish the Doc had stayed home stayer.    

The fav lost a couple of lengths when the winner checked him. Williams then had to use him up.   He's already peaked.     They are only allowed one mistake in a race.

Time was a second quicker than the other 1200m race of the night and 0.66sec outside Miss Andretti's track record. He won tonight against his preferred pattern from a wide draw. I didn't back him, but continues to be underrated this horse, now 8 from 18.

They've discovered he's a sprinter and he's won up the straight. In the Darley up to his eyeballs imo.

I wuz wrong Judge ..   ( Don't pee before the water comes )     

Yes , The Doc went out in 34-42 = Home in = 35.48.     VM had a tough task after being severely checked.

I was rebelling, after seeing my wager on IHT get nutted.
