I’ve been out to Werribee a couple of times this week with Jumpout Joey to check out the international horses. The set up is fabulous with two separate barns and good viewing platforms for the media and horsewatchers to observe the horses parading in their warm up. In one barn are the English and Japanese horses, and in the other the Godolphin and O’Brien horses. The Cup favourite Fame Game is usually the first horse out onto the track each morning and the last back in. He seems to have taken everyone’s eye which is probably why he is a short-priced favourite. He works in bandages, a martingale and a cross-over noseband. The Godolphin horses looked good, especially Elhaame. And Aidan O’Brien’s pair, Bondi Beach and Kingfisher, were excellent.

I’m not a clocker, but the best workers to my untrained eye and hand seemed to be Fame Game, Trip To Paris, Bondi Beach and Max Dynamite.
