Trainer Rick Hore-Lacy says Toorak Toff is as good as he has ever had him heading into the Group Three Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington.

“If he runs as good as he looks he will go pretty well,” Hore-Lacy said.

“He looks absolutely superb and I have never had him going better.”

Toorak Toff’s career was derailed by throat surgery last season but Hore-Lacy believes that the 2010 Group One Golden Rose winner is ready to cut loose.

He said the four-year-old no longer makes any noises when put under pressure and he has dismissed his comeback run in The Goodwood in May as an aberration.

“He got too far back and nothing really made ground all day,” Hore-Lacy said.

A recent Cranbourne barrier trial win and impressive jumpout at Caulfield before that buoy Hore-Lacy’s optimism of a successful spring with the flashy chestnut.

Toorak Toff opened at $18 with TAB Sportsbet for Saturday’s 1200-metre sprint and touched $19 before firming to $15 on Friday.

“It looks a tough, even race but at $19 he was pretty good value,” Hore-Lacy, who snapped up some of the top fluctuation, said.

“He has done enough work to win if he is good enough.”

The Bobbie Lewis will put Toorak Toff on a path to the Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) on September 24, the Group Two Waterford Crystal (1600m) on Cox Plate day and the Group One Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on November 5.

“There are a few options there,” Hore-Lacy said.

Meanwhile, Queensland trainer Jason McLachlan says Phelan Ready ($31) has settled in well in Melbourne and is ready to win his first race since the 2009 Golden Slipper Stakes.

He was second to Varenna Miss in the Group Two QTC Cup (1300m) and third to Woorim in the Listed Glasshouse (1400m) at his only two winter runs and is fresh for the Lewis.

“He had no luck at either of his last two runs,” McLachlan said.

“He has had his fair share of issues the last couple of years but he has come back well this time in.

“It is a bit of query having drawn barrier one on Saturday and I am not 100 per cent sure he is a straight six horse either, but I still think he should be hard to beat.”

Bel Sprinter is the $3.40 race favourite ahead of Dubleanny ($5.50) and Response ($9) who are the only other runners under double-figure odds with TAB Sportsbet.
