The prognosis on Hey Doc’s Australian Guineas chances improved after today’s barrier draw.

Online bookmaker tightened Hey Doc from $4.00 into $3.80 favourite after the gelding drew barrier two. He is the dominant favourite ahead of Divine Prophet and Theanswermyfriend, both $8.50 and the only other runners under double figures.

At Randwick Chautauqua ($2.70) heads betting, ahead of Music Magnate ($3.80) in the Canterbury Stakes. Comin’ Through tops the charts for the Randwick Guineas on $4.60, just ahead of Man From Uncle $6.00. Outsider Impavido ($31) has received good support for the Group 1.

“From the good barrier Hey Doc should be able to take up a great position in the Guineas. He’s coming off a very strong last start win and looks the one to beat again,’’ said’s Christian Jantzen.
