He hasn’t raced for over a month, but quality galloper Signoff has been backed with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Robert Hunter Handicap (2400m) on Saturday at Caulfield.
The 2014 Melbourne Cup fourth placegetter resumed with a barnstorming win in the Lord Stakes (1700m) here on Boxing Day, but hasn’t raced since. He is back now, and has been supported. He touched $6 from $7.50 but is now sitting at $6.50.
Despite the heavy backing Darren Weir is waiting on the results of blood tests to see whether or not Signoff will line-up in the race.
Second Bullet is on the quick back up from last Saturday and is the $3 favourite, in from $3.20. Danjeu is also $5 to $4.80.
Last start Flemington winner Lucques has been completely easy, out to $8.50 from $7.
