Honorable Spirit (Doomben Race 5 No. 8):
This four-year-old Charm Spirit gelding trained by John Smerdon has four wins and four places from 19 starts. He fought hard but was no match in the final 125m and finished, 4.3 lengths 3rd over 1650m at Toowoomba on 19 June, then took over in the straight and bolted in for a 3 length win over 1800m at the Gold Coast on 17 July. On a seven day back-up and with a 3kg claim looks a good each-way chance here.
