Message: The only ones that over-rated he aussies were the aussies, I don;t think the horses were very well fancied overseas, the fact Fields Of Omagh started $3.90 on SuperTAB was ridiculous considering he was 40/1 over there.

Message: I wasn't, I knew that that were all over-rated here when they left. Sad thing is Australia doesn't have a Champion at the moment. I've said this before in re: thats why they're all over-rated. and I coped it off some and some said that it was only one race. The facts are that we don't have a top liner, thats why Lonhro keeps winning, thats why Field Of Omagh won the Cox Plate and thats why our duds are running in HK and not doing a thing.
Message: FOO will infact be given a long spell and brought back for another crack at the cox plate in 2004. He is no cat but IMO he is only good for 2 runs per prep. He cant keep it up once he has reached his peak. Examples being Toorak/Cox and last year His 2 starts before the Australian cup.
Message: Its where it belong imo. I know it ran second to northerly bla bla and won a cox plate bla bla but this horse is a deadset cat if you ask me. IMO a true champion can run well if pace is on or if the pace is slow and can win from the front or behind. This is NOT so for FOO,unless he gets the cushy run he is useless.
I might seem a little harsh but this has been my opinion since about his 3rd or 4th start. This is one horse i have never warmed too. Oh well of to the pal factory FOO
