'Ollie' To Fire Up At Wagga 

1 May 2007
Racing NSW
 
A trip to Brisbane for the Doomben Cup is on the cards for El Meroo after this Friday's $110,000, listed, Wagga Wagga Gold Cup (2000m). Elk Meroo is one of three rides champion jockey Damien Oliver has at the meeting.
 
Gwenda Markwell, who trains El Meroo at Kembla Grange, said she would usually take it one race at a time but the horse was racing so well she was prepared to look towards Brisbane.
 
"Races like the Doomben Cup, Caloundra Cup and Ipswich Cup would be ideal for him," Markwell said. "But I want to get Wagga out of the way and talk to Damien before I finalise any plans."
 
Oliver rode El Meroo when he won the Country Cup at Randwick on April 9 and Markwell booked him then and there for the Wagga Cup ride.
 
"After the race Damien told me how much he liked the horse," Markwell said. "I told him it was going to Wagga for the cup and did he want the ride and he said 'yes' without any hesitation."
 
El Meroo has been in a purple patch of form this preparation, winning the Mingara Mile at Wyong, the Kembla Cup and the Country Cup and an 1800 metre race on the Kensington track at Randwick. Markwell is not worried about the prospect of a rain-affected track at Wagga: "He can handle any going - it is not a worry," she said.
 
Markwell is more concerned about putting right her visit to Wagga two years ago when Jivago was beaten half a head in the Town Plate and the next day My Tally was beaten a long neck in the cup.
 
Oliver's other two rides on Friday are Carolina Pines for Markwell in the Fitzpatrick's Real Estate Class Two (1400m) and Dothis Dothat for Matthew Dale in the Wagga Wagga Marketplace Class Four (1200m).
 
Markwell has an opinion of Carolina Pines, a last start maiden winner at Kembla Grange: "She is a nice filly - very promising," Markwell said.
 
Fourteen horses were declared acceptors for the cup with the Brisbane Cup-bound Fooram from the John O'Shea stable the topweight. Corey Brown has the ride.
 
Cups wizard Bart Cummings will start Mi Casa (Blake Shinn) while Jay Ford has accepted the ride on Zavite for Bart's son, Anthony. Bede Murray has accepted with both Lookout (Tim Clark) and Don't Tell Ted (Grant Buckley), whilst leading Victorian trainer Robert Smerdon has accepted with Terrace but is yet to name a rider. 
 
Wagga Gold Cup Day is the jewel in the crown of the Murrumbidgee Turf Club and the Riverina region. With $227,000 in prizemoney and trophies, the day is head-lined by the Listed $110,000 Tyreworld Wagga Gold Cup (2000m) - one of only four Black Type NSW Country events. The day traditionally attracts around 12,000 racegoers and partygoers.

Ollie's off to Indonesia next week on a two-week surfing holiday after having his appeal dismissed against a careless riding suspension.  Suspension stats tonight and he can ride again on 20 July.

The reality is he has not been a punting plus, very few big name jocks are. More value to be found among the honest journeyman brigade.

Yeah mate fair enough but I'm sorry when you think of jocks getting outridden and jocks copping mouthfulls from punters after races too many cases of Ollie spring too mind and not many of Williams. He's a great with incredible talent though and has achieved more than Craig Williams probably ever will in his career but I still reckon Craig's better sorry.

 Williams no doubt is a very good rider...and as we know he is riding in purple patch of form which alot of jocks go through....on paper he is no where near the class of oliver as a rider ... and never will be...what i like about oliver also is the fact that he as never changed that style of riding of his...   :noteworthy:

To those that hyperventilate about jockeys, particularly big name jockeys......

1. Place a brown paper bag over your head.

2. Breathe in and out a few times quickly.

3. Remove brown paper bag.

4. Repeat procedure whenever symptoms recur.

The truth about Oliver is, that whilst his latest doings have been good, in recent years he has had long periods of indifferent performance that would have accelerated your journey to the punting poorhouse.

Trouble is, Judge, punters are all over these blokes like a rash, takes the cream off any advantage they may bring to their mounts.
Beadman was an exception, thats Darren, not Mitch !  :shy:

The only way to win following any Jockey consistently is keep doubling up if you have enough money, but take no less than even money   :biggrin:
They'll eventually ride a winner and you'll be in front then start again.

That is a "nice" problem, Sporty, and unless you study every ride in detail, you can't distinguish between "out of form" and normal statistical variation. You would need a staff of video watchers skilled in assessing jockeys riding performance. Forget it !

And  following the pennies will see you reduced to pennies.
