Group 1 winner Hey Doc has opened favourite for his return to racing in Saturday’s Aurie’s Star Handicap.

Online bookmaker has priced the Tony McEvoy trained four-year-old at $4.20 for the Flemington Group 3.

In a wide open betting race another elite level winner, I Am A Star, is $7.50.

Former Japanese horse, Brave Smash, now with Darren Weir, is equal second favourite with We’ve Got This on $6.00.

“Some smart horses are stepping out in the Aurie’s Star, none more so than Australian Guineas winner Hey Doc. He had a great three-year-old season, but there is plenty of quality right through the nominations. It looks a tough race for punters,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
