9/10/2017 Weir confirms blinkers to go on Humidor

Trainer Darren Weir yesterday confirmed Turnbull Stakes placegetter Humidor (Teofilo) will have blinkers applied in the Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m). The Victorian trainer was disappointed by the Makybe Diva Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) winner’s third to Winx in Saturday’s race. “My first thought was disappointing,” Weir
said. “He followed Winx into the race. Winx left them all but he started to lay in. We thought we had all those things ironed out at home. He paraded beautifully so there was absolutely no excuse. He ran well below par so I think it’s time for a gear change now.”
