Comin'through, who will race as Here He Comes in Australia, will carry added stable responsibility when he opens his Gr.1 Queensland Derby campaign at Doomben on Saturday.

Trainers Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs have lost the services of the pre-post classic favourite Tavidream following his sale to Hong Kong interests.

"He was going to come over for the Derby, but he's done everything on one preparation and the new owners want him to have a spell," Logan said.

"It's sad to see him go, but it was terrific money and that would take an awful lot of winning."

Tavidream won five of his seven starts, including the Gr.2 Championship Stakes at his final appearance, and finished runner-up in his other two appearances. He is expected to do his future racing from Peter Ho's Hong Kong stable.

With the son of Tavistock out of the picture for Brisbane, it will be up to Here He Comes to fly the stable flag and he will make his Australian debut this weekend in the Gr.3 Rough Habit Plate.

"He looks fantastic he travelled over well and I'm very pleased with him," Logan said.

"There's been a fair bit of rain here, but he's galloped well at Doomben and got through the ground without a problem – he's not one dimensional."

Here He Comes has beaten the older horses three times over ground this season and at his last appearance he finished seventh behind Tavidream at Ellerslie after being forced to cover extra ground.

The son of Bullbars has been ridden in all three of his victories by Leith Innes, who will continue his association with the gelding at Doomben on Saturday.
