Open class pacer No Doctor Needed has once again returned to the South Auckland stables of Steve Telfer.

He headed for his second Australian stint in November after racing in the New Zealand Cup, but has returned home after a fruitless four-start campaign in Sydney that turned up one fourth.

The two upcoming Free For Alls at Alexandra Park in early March are the first targets, but he is in a race against time for the first one, The Founders Cup ($30,000) on March 2.

“I’m going to nominate for next Friday at Auckland, but I’ll take him to the trials at Pukekohe on Tuesday and decide if he’s ready,” said Telfer.

“He seems really happy and well and looks great, but until we get a line on him at the trials, we won’t really know.”
