Ideas Man to undergo check before Showdown

Racing Victoria vets will need to again check over Ideas Man before he is allowed to start in The Showdown at Caulfield.

All 20 horses need to be inspected and passed fit by RV vets before taking their place in Saturday’s $855,000 race for two-year-olds.

RV vets completed 14 inspections on Thursday with only the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Ideas Man failing after the colt presented with lameness in the right fore leg.

The veterinary team will re-examine Ideas Man again on Friday along with the remaining six horses – Beau Rossa, Hybrid Theory, Cornucopia and emergency acceptors Miss Kansas, Halvoya and Night Of Delight – that were not inspected on Thursday.
