Super impressive win in the Hobartsville Stakes.  Is this the best 3 year old we have seen come out of NZ in a long time.  Easy win on Sat, nice acceleration at the 100m to put the race to bed, eased down in the end

Next start is the Randwick Guineas, then the Rosehill Guineas, then decisions to be made on whether to go to the Doncaster Mile(won twice by his sire), or the ATC Derby

A comment was passed by the race commentator, that the improved track condition, may not have been to his liking??

I haven't seen the race but his effort from the 600m-200m was different to how he usually runs. Race time he can run but the profile of the race perhaps his undoing because of firmer track?

IMO a combo of the firmer track and 2nd-up syndrome was his undoing. We know he's got a great 'turn of foot' but perhaps that blistering run a fortnight ago took more out of him than everyone thought. Horse -esp young ones-  are not machines - he's had a flight over, a tough run to win well first-up and was asked to go again. Mebbe he just needed another week to get over the first run. I' wouldn't be looking at a Derby or even a 2000m race for him based on that run. Freshen up and head for the Doncaster, carrying no weight, get a decent draw and you're a 'live' chance.

I also think there is a definite downgrade in performance second up in Australia for Kiwi horses. It happens too regularly to be coincidental.
