Still smoking

Humidor hasn't been seen since last year's Cox Plate, but big things are expected of the seven-year-old this spring.

Now with Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, he was in the care of Darren Weir when placing behind Winx in each of the past two Cox Plates.

With Winx off the scene, Humidor is considered a leading contender for this year's weight-for-age showpiece. And his campaign begins this Saturday in the first Group 1 of the Melbourne season, the Memsie Strakes, a race Humidor won last year.

Will he do it again?
