O'Brien fancy unlikley to gain start

Danny O'Brien's hopes of squeezing Iamzeus into Saturday's Caulfield Guineas will be dashed if Rhyno Chaser and Georgia's Boy gallop strongly tomorrow morning.

Iamzeus, an eye-catching second at Flemington last Sunday and rated by O'Brien as his best three-year-old, will miss a start by one spot if Rhyno Chaser or Georgia's Boy gallop well.

Connections of 17 of the 36 second acceptors for the Guineas indicated yesterday they would accept. Iamzeus is 17th in the ballot order.

Tatura trainer Gary Sherer said he was "80 per cent" sure he would accept with last start Bendigo winner Georgia's Boy, while Rhyno Chaser's trainer Kevin Moses said he was reasonably confident he would take his place.

Rhyno Chaser was scratched from Saturday's Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick after piercing his hoof on a nail.

He has been recuperating with beach work and will have a gallop at Warwick Farm tomorrow.

"He's been at the beach for three days and is improving, but he needs to gallop well," Moses said.

Stutt Stakes winner Whobegotyou heads TAB Sportbet's Guineas market at $3.

Iamzeus is equal second favourite with Lee Freedman's colt Time Thief, who was confirmed as a starter yesterday.
