Bid Spotter loving his new home!

A much improved horse since entering the Toby Edmonds yard is Bid Spotter. He showed a lot of promise in the early days but went off the boil for a long time and it looked like his days of winning were long gone.

Toby got the horse and within 3-4 runs the horse has paid for itself and it looks as though there are more wins in store. Bid Spotter was originally a $850,000 yearling purchase from the 2007 Magic Millions sales, he won the Hobart Cup in 2011 along with the Manion Cup at Rosehill but overall you would have to think he didn’t live up to the hefty price tag (He has made just over $500,000 back).

His first start for the Edmonds camp was a 1/2L win and his 3rd run was his last start where he got nosed out late, but the run was full of merit. I asked Toby about the horse and how he had turned him around. “He is going great. I’m not sure I turned him around, he obviously had a couple of years where he was ordinary but he may have just needed a change of scenery as well.” Edmonds said.

If the storms come as expected there is a slight doubt if he will run but if the rain misses Brisbane the horse will run really well. There is also a chance the horse may be freshened for a tilt at the Magic Millions stayers cup.

Purettan can take a run or two to come to hand and Toby felt his best chances would be with the sting out of the ground and getting over to Doomben. A good run would not surprise but when the conditions fall his way is when we will obviously see the best of him.

One of the stable stars is Emvoss but unfortunately he didn’t really come up at all last prep. “He has been in pre-training for 4-5 weeks, he arrived back last Monday and he looks pretty good. “

Let’s hope he comes back to the form we seen the preparation before and gets back in the winners stall.
