Or actually he'll probably just come back earlier since he'll now be starting his break earlier. He's appealing though.

I reckon the appeal will be a success to be honest.

 Hall of Fame jockey Damien Oliver has been granted a stay of proceedings to ride at Flemington on Saturday, allowing him to continue his fight for the Metropolitan Jockey Premiership against fellow hoop Craig Williams.
Oliver had his license to ride suspended until midnight Sunday 5 July (a total of three metropolitan and seven provincial meetings) at Betfair Park on Wednesday after he was found guilty of careless riding on his mount Tilda in Race 3. Oliver will appeal the penalty on Monday at 11:15am.

Oliver is currently on 63 wins for the season, a mere one win behind Williams with 64 wins, in the head-to-head battle for the Premiership.

Every metropolitan ride is crucial for Oliver who will take a break from race riding after the 4 July meeting at Flemington, should his penalty be lifted. Williams will ride until the end of the season which culminates on Friday 31 July.

Oliver has a book of six rides on Saturday while Williams will ride the full eight-race card.

The Jockeys Premiership is traditionally an excellent guide to the Scobie Breasley Medal, which last year was won by Williams. The Medal will be presented to the winning jockey at the Victorian Thoroughbred Racing Awards presented by Tabcorp on Sunday 9 August at Palladium at Crown.

here here on chortova ;

Damien Oliver's chances of claiming an eighth Melbourne jockeys' premiership hinge on a favourable outcome to an appeal against a careless riding charge.

Oliver, who has been riding under a stay of proceedings after a 10-meeting suspension at Sandown last week, has ridden 65 winners, one more than Craig Williams.

He will have his appeal heard on Monday in the hope he can build on his lead at Sandown on Wednesday and Flemington the following Saturday before taking a break.

Williams is chasing his fourth title in a row.

Premiership target alive for Oliver after appeal varied

29th June 2009, 2:52 pm
By Robert Windmill

MELBOURNE, June 29 AAP - Hall Of Fame jockey Damien Oliver has kept his premiership aspirations alive after having a 10-meeting suspension varied on appeal.

Oliver won't ride at Wednesday's meeting at Sandown but will return for Flemington's "Finals Day" on Saturday.

He rode under a stay of proceedings at Flemington on Saturday and was to miss this week's two city meetings after being suspended at Sandown last Wednesday.

His suspension was to expire at midnight on July 5 but was varied to expire on midnight on July 3.

Oliver argued for a severe reprimand but the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board found the charge of careless riding on Tilda in last Wednesday's Siren Song Handicap was proven.

Oliver shifted in on Tilda near the 1800 metres but he argued that Craig Robertson on Bellamo contributed to the incident as he believed it was reasonable to think that Robertson would have eased his mount back given the circumstances.

Three horses, including Bellamo were hampered, but none lost their position.

In varying the penalty, chairman Russell Lewis said the degree of carelessness was "in the lower registers of the low range".

Oliver has ridden 65 city winners this season and took a one win lead over Craig Williams with a double at Flemington.

While mindful of trying to win his eighth jockey premiership, Oliver said Monday's appeal was more about protecting his riding record going into the spring.

He was recently resumed from a suspension in Brisbane and he said he wasn't proud of his riding record in the two years prior to his last Victorian suspension in January this year.

"I have been working hard on that the last 18 months to two years to try and improve and I certainly don't need a careless riding charge hanging over my head coming into the spring carnival," Oliver said.

Oliver had only one ride at Sandown on Wednesday after trainers were reluctant to engage him with an appeal pending.

The champion jockey said he would take a 10-day holiday from next Sunday and return for the last two weeks of the racing season which ends on July 31.

Oliver has won the jockeys' premiership seven times while arch-rival Williams is trying for his fourth title in a row.

Williams has six rides at Sandown on Wednesday - Status Fraction, The Zeustar, Lady Lisbon, Chiefcomingfirst, Molexio and Cameo Minx.

The Zeustar would be some sort of chance Mark, do you think ?

If Irish Rhapsody runs up to its last it will go close but its a risk coz looking at prior form that could have been a fluke.  :confused1:

Tough race.

So looks like I'm not the only one that thinks The Zeustar is a little short ey  :rolleyes:

If I have a bet at all on the race it will be an e/w go at Irish Rhapsody.
