I was ready to put this horse as a banker in a few parlays - not now. Don't like this at all.Trainer Reports To Stewards - It's Me (Randwick, Saturday)Trainer Brett Cavanough has reported to Racing NSW Stewards this morning that IT'S ME, an acceptor in race 5 (no.14) The Kosciuszko, was subject to an endoscopic examination yesterday afternoon after coughing when exiting the pool following a swim.
The endoscopic examination revealed very mild mucus and the mare was treated with antibiotics. A blood test for health assessment returned normal with no sign of infection.
Mr Cavanough has advised the mare's training program has not been altered in any way.
A further endoscopic examination will be performed on the mare on Friday to review its response to the treatment, the results of which will be reported to Racing NSW Stewards and Veterinarians for assessment to determine its suitability to race in The Kosciuszko.https://www.racingnsw.com.au/news/latest-racing-news/trainer-reports-to-stewards-its-me-randwick-saturday/It's Me - Passed Suitable To Race At Randwick (Sat)Trainer Brett Cavanough has provided Racing NSW Stewards with the results of a blood test of IT'S ME for health assessment, which returned within normal parameters and has advised an endoscopic examination performed this morning has confirmed the mare has responded well to treatment and there was no presence of mucus.

Did someone ask the mare and she confirmed that she had "responded well to treatment"?
Shouldn't be running IMO. $2.25 favourite.
Cannot find out what happened to Front Page. Geoff Duryea was reported on racing.com four days ago saying he was hoping for a good draw. Looks like the slotholders have subbed in the bottom one Prairie Fire.#9 Two Big Fari
at $16 is worth an each way bet. Won 6 from 9 and two placings - the only unplaced effort being the Country Championship Final where he ran 5th.
Cody Morgan was talking up the chances of #8 Ligulate
the other day and on his day could win this.#14 It's Me
, if it weren't for the mucus, I would have declared her. Still have to keep her in the chances.
