After nervous waits, the T pair painted great pictures of excitement, passion and enthusiasm when told their horses had made the 12-horse field for Saturday night’s $1 million grand final. Khouiss, who made the Gold Coasthomesix months, trains Our Brahman Boy, while the Yarra Glen-based Wootton has In Monaco. They will be rank outsiders, and even a top-three finish would shock, but just making the final is still a huge buzz and accomplishment in itself. Khouiss summed it up best: ‘‘Really, we probably can’t win the final, but people said we were just making up the numbers before the series and now we’re down to the last 12 (from 36 heat runners).’’ Just two weeks before the series In Monaco was well outside the 36-horse qualify- ing list on rankings, but a large attrition rate saw him just sneak in. Gavin Lang is favourite to drive In Monaco in the final, with Blake Fitzpatrick con- firmed on Our Brahman Boy. + K ARLOO Mick’s trainer Barry Lew had his first RAINERS ALI Khouiss and Charlie Wootton are evidence the Inter Dom- series and it will be run at Moonee Valley instead, just as it was this year. I T IS quite fitting Captain Joy will chase his second Derby crown of the season on Inter Dominion final night at the Gold Coast. Everybody who watched the three-year-old embarrass his rivals in a lead-up race last Saturday night believed they had seen an Inter Dom- inion horse of the future. Captain Joy, already with the Victoria Derby in the bag, looks a class above anything he will meet in the $100,000 Queensland Derby next Saturday night. Herald Sun form analyst Hunt for the double: Captain Joy will chase his second Derby crown of the season on Inter Dominion final night at the Gold Coast on Saturday. bet in 20 years a few weeks ago. Whenhe decided to surren- der the drive on Karloo Mick and book Greg Bennett for the Inter Dominion, Lew knew Karloo Mick would improve. Lew pulled $600 out of his wallet, went to his local TAB in Dubbo and had $300 each- way on Karloo Mick for the Inter Dominion final at $151 with TAB Sportsbet. Karloo Mick’s wins in both his Inter Dominion heats have seen his odds tumble into $9 for the final. ‘‘I’m certainly not a punter and I don’t know why I even thought about having the bet, but I’ve got Greg Bennett to thank for doing it,’’ Lew said. next year’s Sydney Inter Dominion. Word is the series will be shared between three venues, starting with Harold Park, moving to Newcastle and finishing at the new Menangle track. S It is also expected Sydney will decline the trotting TAND by for some inter- esting developments for Bill Hutchison gave Captain Joy the ultimate compliment when he likened his growing dominance to that of Courage Under Fire, who won a record six Derbys in season 1998-99. Bonavista Bay, the pacer many believed would seri- ously test Captain Joy this season, is sidelined by injury. Owner Bob Proberts said Bonavista Bay had been boxed after having a pin inserted in a hairline fracture in a hind leg. ‘‘The best-case scenario is for him to be back racing in time for a crack at Captain Joy in the Breeders Crown (August),’’ Proberts said.
