15/5/2018 Man Of His Word out to end Doomben Cup hoodoo

Bruce Hill believes underrated gelding Man Of His Word (Lope De Vega) is in good shape ahead of Saturday’s Doomben Cup (Gr 1, 2000m). The stakes-winning Man Of His Word suffered interference before charging late to grab third in the A D Hollindale Stakes (Gr 2, 1800m) at his home track on 5 May. “I have been saying for the past couple of years that Man Of His Word wouldn’t be at his best until he got out to 1800 to 2000 metres,” Hill said. “He didn’t have the best of luck again in the Holindale but was finishing better than anything. Galio Chop is obviously a very good horse and even with him out it is a strong field.”
