Helmet will be the only three-year-old in the $3 million Cox Plate

Assistant trainer Paul Snowden has expressed his satisfaction with his Cox Plate runner Helmetgoing into tomorrow’s race.

Helmet, who won both the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and Caulfield Guineas in his past two starts, will be the only three-year-old in the $3 million race.

“He’s spot on for tomorrow and he’s going to run accordingly,” Snowden said.

“He’s bounced back really well (from his Caulfield Guineas run) and we couldn’t be happier.”

While he admits the scratching of Descarado has made Helmet’s task a little easier, Snowden does not anticipate the race to be his for the taking.

“There’s another good 13 horses we’ve got to get through first,” he said.

“Hopefully we can get a good run and hopefully that 49.5 (kilograms) is going to kick in somewhere.”

Helmet continued to train over the jumps to prepare himself for waht is known as the “greatest two minutes in sport”.

“He popped over a couple this morning, that’s his usual routine,” Snowden said.

It has been well documented over the past few months that Helmet’s demeanour has improved considerably since arriving in Melbourne.

“We just had to get his mental attitude right,” Snowden said.

“He gives you a lot of confidence.

“I’m just really looking forward to tomorrow.”

Snowden also touched on the wellbeing of Victoria Derby hopeful Induna, who won the Geelong Classic on Wednesday.

“He’s pulled up great, he’s in good order,” he said.

“He had a good blow after the race so I think there’s something left in the tank for the Derby.

“Our bloke, he can definitely run the trip right out.

“That will hold on good stead for the 2500 Derby.”

    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
