C Lever was outstanding Today at Kembla . Probably at his best . Watch the ride on the Waller hotpot in Race 2. A gem. Then have a squizz at him in the last . Outstanding. Why doesn't this fellow get more opportunities in NSW after he found the going a bit tough in South Australia.

No complaints re his ride on the 2nd race.  Bigger concern was why that thing was odds on  :lol:

The last race, he certainly seemed to have mistimed his run. In saying that it certainly is the horses racing pattern

If you are on allegedly the best horse in the race in a small field you don't put yourself in that position . Great riders don't : just those who make up the numbers. Never saw Higgins caught on the fence in the straight at Flemington (one of our longest straights ) Simply because he knew you had to be off the fence at the 700 metre  mark. The dummys don't get it. Then again it was a Waller favourite so who would know. As for the ride in the last it reminded me of some old time trotting drivers who seemed to have trouble counting the
laps at Harold Park for one reason or another. On a more positive note the best ride I saw Today, after looking at the videos was Kathy O"Hara on Lord Zoulander. Positive early , assessed situation and I reckon she is riding as well as she ever has.

She's also based herself in the 'southern region' whilst she has spent most of her career riding in town. She should be running rings around most of them!

I wouldn't belittle her achievements in the Southern Region- there are plenty of good hoops who are based in that region and others at present. . Many in these regions are every bit  as good as some of those who are based in the City. Reith , Penza, Ryan , Thompson, O'Hara, Hutchings, Latham ,Costin,  etc don't have anything to learn from those based in the City.

Race 7: Maraboon Tavern Class 6 Plate – 1200m
 
ARRESTAR – Overraced in the early and middle stages.
 
ENEMY OF MAN – Slow to begin.
 
SHOW ‘EM  - Rider reported her mount did not handle the going today.
 
HACKSAW RIDGE – Stewards opened an inquiry into jockey Watkins’s riding, particularly over the final 800m. After taking evidence from jockey Watkins and Trainer T. Austin, the matter was adjourned to allow stewards to view the previous starts and also examine betting records of the race. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any significant abnormalities.

His ride on the short priced favourite in the previous race wasn't too flash either although in fairness he might have realized he was in the glue and trying to get out of it. Drew barrier 1.

4 months.

If he'd have jagged him back a couple more lengths he would have been out of camera range and might have got away with it.   :lol:

Anyone wonder why a senior jockey gets 4 months in a country meeting while an apprentice gets 3 months for Vega One in a feature race in the city? Other than being an apprentice, does the stature of the race have any impact on sentencing?
