The field for the Group 1 $650,000 The Bundaberg Rum Doomben Cup (2000m) at Doomben today stays intact with fifteen runners to compete on a soft 5 rated track under sunny skies.

The Gai Waterhouse trained Pornichet remains at the top of the market order with Ladbrokes.com.au at $4.20 just ahead of last year’s Doomben Cup runner up Leebaz at $5.

The highest rated of Chris Waller’s five runners, I’m Imposing, is the next in the betting at $8 with multiple Group 1 winning Kiwi mare Silent Achiever marked at $8.50.

Waller’s remaining four are Foreteller at $10, Moriarty at $15, Hawkspur at $16 and Weary at $19 while the Peter and Paul Snowden trained Gypsy Diamond is marked as a $12 chance.

Waterhouse won the Doomben Cup with Juggler in 1996 and rates Pornichet in the same mould as the multiple Group 1 winner.

“I think he’s a very special horse just like Juggler was,” Waterhouse told The Courier-Mail.

“They are similar in size and like Juggler, this horse has a terrific temperament.

“Every preparation he has improved in quantum leaps.”

Waterhouse has great ambitions for Pornicheet if he lives up to her expectations and is eyeing off the Group 1 $3m Sportingbet Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in the Spring.

“I’ve said for some time I think he can make a Cox Plate horse. He has to win the Doomben Cup to justify that, but I think he’s up to it,” Waterhouse said.

“He’s right in the race and I love back-up horses.’’

Doomben Cup market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4.20 Pornichet, $5 Leebaz, $8 I’m Imposing, $8.50 Silent Achiever, $10 Foreteller, $12 Gypsy Diamond, $15 Moriarty, $16 Hawkspur, $18 Green Moon, $19 Weary, Epingle, $26 Hopfgarten, $34 Banca Mo, $51 Escado, $61 Addictive Habit.

    The following time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I really thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix when you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
