Helmet winning the Caulfield Guineas

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy has high hopes for Cox Plate favourite Helmet going into the race next weekend.

McEvoy regards Helmet, who won the $1 million Caulfield Guineas last start, as one of the top three-year-olds to feature in the race’s history.

“I think he’s right up there at the top of the list,” McEvoy said.

Helmet impressed the jockey during a routine trackwork session at Moonee valley this morning.

“He just came here to familiarise himself,” McEvoy said.

“He took it all in his stride … it was pretty easy work.

“The vibe I got from him this morning was that he’s got over his Guineas run really well.”

“He didn’t feel like a horse that was jaded or has gone over the top.”

McEvoy is currently attempting to reach Helmet’s weight allowance of 49.5 kilograms in time for the Cox Plate.

“I haven’t got down to that weight for about 10 years,” he said.

“It can weaken you when you cut down so much on what you eat, but I’m hoping it will be worth it.

“He’s also got to run the trip out, but that’s up to me to ride him properly on the day.”

The Exceed And Excel colt is hoping to follow in the footsteps of top galloper So You Think, who won the Cox Plate as a three-year-old in 2009.

Helmet has won six of his nine race starts and has earned close to $1.5 million in prize money during his short career.
