Australian Racing - Racing: Eustace confident with Hitotsu

Hitotsu will not lack fitness when he tackles the Group 1 Australian Guineas over 1600 metres at Flemington on Saturday according to co-trainer David Eustace.

The three-year-old colt has not been seen since his sparkling Group 1 VRC Derby triumph last year and he is currently 5/2 to make a winning comeback this weekend.

To prepare for his return, Hitotsu has had a jump-out and an official trial at Cranbourne, where he finished fifth over 990 metres on February 7th.

And Eustace said a gallop on Sunday would ensure Hitotsu is in top order for his return.

"His jump-outs have been good, his work has been good, so we're very happy," Eustace, who co-trains with Ciaron Maher, said.

"He's done enough work and he'll be fit enough, it's just whether he's got the sharpness of the others.

"He obviously showed a good turn of foot at a mile-and-a-half, but it's a whole other thing at the mile, however I think he showed in the Caulfield Guineas that he's got that class.

"The tempo I think will be important, but I think it should be strong enough and the way he is going, I think he should be hard to beat."
