Ignoring all the hype and anti-hype, I think Light Fantastic is exceptionally well weighted at 55kg in the Doncaster.

I see he's over 20/1 in the markets, so that suggests they're not heading that way.

Anyone know what the actual plans are?

Next run will be in the Ryder so I doubt the Donny would be completley ruled out.

$31 looks ridiculous if he's heading that way.

Shouldn't you be doing the form for the Kazakhstan Beetle Races?

Couldn't get the 1600m at Caulfield on Saturday- why would he be able to be able to win at 1600m at Randwick?

He's only had a few runs, so he can only improve  ;)

One thing I would like to say is, it's the biggest and strongest I have seen this horse looking, he looked an absolute treat on Saturday.

Think Mick Price has got all his problems sorted, and what ever he goes around in next time I will be backing him  :thumbsup:

Hard to back him over a high pressure mile at Randwick.

Anyone got the individual last 600m sectionals from Saturday?

He was beaten a half head, after going quite early.

He probably ran the quickest last 600m.

He has the greatest scope for improvement out of the first three.

He drops to 55kg.

I can't say he won't run a strong mile in the Doncaster on that.

Thought Light Fantastic was going to take all before him last year before going astray. He's on the way back but wouldn't be backing him in Doncaster.

Light Fantastic is the perfect horse for the Doomben 10,000 and the Stradbroke.  8-)

I agree.

I do think he's got a Group 1 1400-1600m handicap in him, the way he's being weighted.

If Over, Merimbula Bay, Patezza, Sprint By, Soho Square and the like  can win a Doncaster than surely Light Fantastic is in it up to his ears.
