Hucklebuck in Peak Condition Ahead of Guineas

Leading trainer Philip Stokes is happy with the condition of talented three-year-old Hucklebuck ahead of this weekend’s Australian Guineas (1600m) following a final hit-out at Morphettville this morning.

Having claimed two wins from as many starts this preparation, including the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington last time out (February 15th), Stokes told TVN he could not be more pleased with the form of the Elvstroem gelding leading into this weekend’s featured at Flemington.

“I was very pleased with his work, I like what I saw this morning” Stokes said.

“All being well between now and Thursday he’ll be on the float Thursday night heading across.”

Having worked over 800m this morning, Stokes revealed Hucklebuck was particularly strong over the final 400 and will be hard to beat in the Guineas, particularly if a good barrier is drawn tomorrow.

“He should be spot-on for Saturday” Stokes added.

“A nice draw would be good now.”

Hucklebuck was undoubtedly one of the most consistent short distance runners over his maiden preparation in spring 2013, having claimed three wins from only five starts that included both the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) and Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on November 2nd.

Having returned to the track in scintillating form in 2014, Hucklebuck is poised for a particularly busy preparation with an appearance in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) on Saturday-week a very realistic chance and the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 12th looming as the major target. has currently instilled Hucklebuck as clear $4.10 favourite for this weekend’s Group 1 Australian Guineas ahead of classy Team Cummings-trained flyer Eurozone ($4.40) and 2013 Cox Plate champion Shamus Award ($7.50). is currently offering all members the chance to claim a bonus bet of up to $250 just for signing up!
