Station works on right track BUSES will replace trains on the Frankston line during a four day construction blitz at Mentone and Cheltenham stations. Buses will run between Mordialloc and Frankston from 8.15pm, 30 April, to 8.15pm, 1 May. From then until the last train on 3 May, buses replace trains between Caulfield and Frankston. Trains have been running express through Mentone and Cheltenham stations after they closed last month. They both will be replaced by new stations, which are scheduled to open in the middle of the year (“Virus won’t stop station works”, The News, 25/3/20). Old timber buildings at the two stations are in the process of being refurbished (pictured top, middle), and will form part of the reconstructed station designs (bottom). Construction activities are being modified onsite during the COVID-19 pandemic to allow for social distancing. Pictures: Supplied

Fatal plane engine failure cause unknown Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Australian Transport Safety Bureau has been unable to find a reason for a reported engine failure that caused a fatal plane crash in Mordialloc in 2018. The ATSB released their final report into the crash on 24 April. The report

read that “the ATSB examined the aircraft’s engine, its components and fuel system, but was unable to determine the reason for the reported engine power loss.” The fatal crash occurred on 8 June, 2018. The pilot and sole occupant of the Cessna 172 aircraft transmitted a mayday call, telling Moorabbin Air Traffic Control “we’ve got engine

failure”. The plane then crashed onto Scarlet Street, about 680 metres from Moorabbin Airport, killing the pilot. The plane was making its first flight since a scheduled maintenance. The ATSB report says that witnesses “observed the aircraft’s left wing and nose drop, consistent with an aerodynamic stall” after the mayday call was made. “The engine had been operated,

during testing and in the aircraft, for about 4 hours, with no indication of abnormalities. Further, the engine examination did not identify a mechanical reason for the loss of power,” the report read. “Fuel calculations indicated there should have been over 100 L on board (...) at the time of the accident. In addition, the intense post-impact fire was

consistent with there being a substantial quantity of fuel on board. “In summary, the reason for the engine power loss could not be determined.” The ATSB report also read that “the investigation found that when control of the aircraft was lost, there was insufficient height to recover.” Continued Page 2

airport. This is particularly relevant where the approach is over built-up areas, such as at Moorabbin Airport,” he said. “Having a clear, defined emergency plan prior to the critical stages of the flight removes indecision and reduces pressure on the pilot while in a highstress situation. “Proficiency in in-flight emergen-

cies can be improved by regularly practicing these emergencies. Additionally, flying the approach as per manufacturer and airport procedures places the aircraft in the optimum configuration and position.” A FATAL plane crash on Scarlet Street, Mordialloc in 2018. Pic: Gary Sissons

Council changes may hurt small parties and independents Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON Council is expected to be one of eight councils to move to a single member ward structure at the 2020 local government elections. The Local Government Act 2020 was passed into law late last month. The act mandated the change to single member wards for a number of local councils, including Kingston, which will move to that structure at the October election. Kingston Council currently consists of nine councillors spread across three wards. The change will see individual councillors represent smaller wards. The state government’s move to enforce single member wards defies a recommendation made by the Victorian Electoral Commission last year. The VEC finished a review of Kingston Council’s ward structure in October 2019, and recommended that council expand to eleven councillors spread across just three wards (“Review recommends more councillors”, The News, 16/10/19). Local government minister Adem Somyurek said the changes made in the new Local Government Act would “make councils more accountable and democratic and will help them to deliver the services their communities rely on.” There is some fear that the changes will prove hurtful for small party and independent candidates at council elections. Victorian Greens leader Samantha Ratnam said “Vic-

torians deserve diversity in their councils. Moving all councils to a single member ward structure will increase the likelihood that councils are controlled entirely by major parties and that decision making is

dominated by ward interests over the common good of the council area.” “The VEC has advised against a shift to single member wards for a number of years, so it begs the

Dandenong City Council will also move to single member ward structures at the 2020 election. Frankston Council is expected to follow the single member ward structure by the 2024 elections. The City of Casey will not participate in the election process while under the care of administrators, who were appointed after the council was sacked in February. Other changes made with the passage of the Local Government Act 2020 include mandatory training for councillors, and a statewide code of conduct.

Stolen bank cards used POLICE are looking to speak to a woman after stolen bank cards were used at a Mentone service station earlier this month. A woman had bank cards and other items stolen from her car on 7 April. The next morning, those cards were used to make purchases at a service station.

who they believe can help them with their enquiries. Anyone who recognises the woman or has information can contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppervic.com.au A WOMAN police wish to speak to about a credit card theft and deception.

Man charged with murder A MAN has been charged with murder after the death of a man in Frankston North earlier this month. On 4 April police attended a house on Lehmann Crescent, just after 11pm, when they discovered a man with life-threatening injuries. Paramedics worked on the 47-year-old, but he died at the scene. On 19 April a 44-year-old Frankston North man was arrested by homicide squad detectives, and charged with one count of murder. The man was remanded to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.

car. The man was pulled over by police on Greville Street, Prahan on 17 April. Police allege that they found drugs including GHB, methylamphetamine, ecstasy, ketamine, and prescription medication in his car along with weapons including a machete, a sword, an extendable baton, and several knives. Police also allege that they found “computer items, multiple car and master keys and a large amount of personal documents such as Medicare cards, banking documents, birth certificates and travel documents” inside the vehicle. The 24-year-old was arrested and charged with drug offences, possess prohibited weapons, negligently deal with proceeds of crime, handle stolen goods, and going equipped to steal.

VICTORIA Police detected 259 drug drivers, 124 drink drivers, and 3610 speeding offenders as part of their roadside operation over the Easter long weekend. Operation Nexus ran from 9 April to 13 April. Police also detected 243 disqualified drivers, 398 unlicensed drivers, 902 unregistered vehicles, 246 mobile phone offences, 354 disobey signs or signals, and 162 seatbelt offences Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Libby Murphy said “we take comfort in the fact no one has died as a result of stupidity on our roads this weekend, but it’s this sort of reckless and selfish behaviour that can lead to a lifetime of grief for others.” “It can take a split second for excessive speed or impairment to eradicate a life,” she said. “We can only hope, while these drivers live with the consequences of having their vehicles temporarily impounded, their licences removed, or their day in court, that they realise this is the far better outcome.”

MISSING man Jacob Horton. Police released an image last week of Mr Horton on the day of his disappearance (left).

SOCIAL distancing rules may have seen ANZAC day dawn services statewide cancelled, but that didn’t stop people paying their respects to those that have lost their lives in war. Mentone RSL played the Last Post from their doorstep at dawn, as residents stood at the end of their driveways to pay respects. Frankston RSL hosted an online ANZAC Day service from Beauty Park. Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer said “although we are unable to attend Anzac Day services in person this year, we can still honour those who have served our great country.”

Four-year-old kinder registration open soon

Man last seen in Frankston may be victim of foul play THE search continues for a man who police believe may have been a victim of “foul play” after disappearing last year. Jacob Horton was last seen leaving a house on Drum Close, Frankston, on 27 June last year. He left in the morning without his phone or car. A police statement released last week read that his disappearance was “now being treated as suspicious.” “Investigators are of the belief that Jacob has met with foul play,” the statement read. The 28-year-old resided in Safety Beach, and was known to frequent Rosebud and Frankston. Police say “on the morning Jacob vanished, he was

REGISTRATION is set to open for 2021 four-year-old kindergarten places. Applications through the central registration system for Kingston kindergartens open 1 May. The central registration system covers 26 local kindergartens. The mayor Georgina Oxley said the system “ensures a fair allocation process”. “Parents can nominate their top three preferred kindergartens and over recent years around 97 per cent of families have received an offer at their kindergarten of choice,” she said. “Places are prioritised based on a set of criteria including proximity and prior connection to the kindergarten, so to be included in the first allocation round simply submit your registration by 30 June, there’s no need to rush.” Registration forms at kingston.vic. gov.au/kindergarten

attempting to source transport to travel back towards the Rosebud area.” Last week detectives released an image of Mr Horton which was taken on the morning of his disappearance. Police describe him as about 170cm tall with a thin build, red hair, and brown eyes. Police are appealing for public information to help locate Mr Horton. They want to speak to anyone with information about Mr Horton’s movements on the morning of his disappearance, or anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts.

POLICE are performing more frequent checks on people they say are “a high risk of being the victim of further family violence offending” during the coronavirus pandemic. Operation Ribbon will see detectives from family violence investigation units ramp up checks to homes to help reduce “the anticipated increase of family violence incidents during this time and beyond,” a police statement read. As part of the operation, compliance checks will be carried out on perpetrators. Victoria Police announced on 21 April that they had conducted 347 checks statewide, including 106 compliance checks on “high-risk perpetrators”. 44 family violence offences were detected during those checks, including breaches of intervention order and assault. There have been 13 people charged and remanded. 11 people were also arrested and will appear in court at a later date.

Figures from the Crime Statistics Agency revealed that there were over 1600 family violence incidents reported in the Kingston municipality last year. The number of reported incidents in Kingston was a rise of over 8 per cent from the figure the year before. Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said “we recognise this is a particularly high-risk time for family violence with stay at home directions adding another layer of challenges for some members of our community to reach out for support.” “This means people in our community may be particularly vulnerable during these times and need our help,” he said. “We are sending a strong and clear warning to perpetrators, closed doors will not protect you from being held to account.” In an emergency call 000. Support for people experiencing family violence is available 24 hours a day through safe steps by calling 1800 015 188 or emailing safesteps@safesteps.org.au


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Walter Leach sent to reformatory prison Compiled by Cameron McCullough AT the Court of General Sessions on Monday, before Judge Dethridge, a young man named Walter Edward Leach, 18 years of age, pleaded guilty to charges of indecent assault upon girls. There were four counts relating to Hampton, Black Rock, Middle Brighton, and Frankston on different dates between October, 1919, and March, 1920. Accused also admitted a prior conviction at the Children’s Court at Brighton on July 4, 1918, for an aggravated assault upon a female child, when he was released upon probation for a year. Mr E. C. Kelly, on behalf of Leach, said that the case presented some extraordinary circumstances. In nearly every instance accused followed the same plan. He would linger around a State School, and pick out a girl about 10 years of age, whom he would induce to go away with him. At another time he would speak to some girl he met in the street. He would take the girl to some isolated place, on the beach or among the ti-tree, and behave indecently towards her; but in one case only did he attempt to interfere with a girl’s clothing. The accused, counsel submitted, ought not to be dealt with as being an ordinary criminal; but as being a man suffering from some obscure form of lunacy, The evidence of Dr W. J. Denehy, who had examined him, was that his physical condition was such as would be likely to predispose him to commit

offences of this character but certain remedial methods had been suggested, and accused was willing to undergo treatment. In the circumstances, counsel asked the Court to deal with the case in some special manner with a view to the young man’s reform, contending that no good purpose would be served by simply sending him to gaol for any length of time. His honor said that he thought the better course to adopt in regard to accused would be to commit him to a reformatory prison. He would not impose any stated term upon him; but ordered that he be detained during the Governor’s pleasure. The case would of course come under the review of the prison officials from time to time. *** REV. Angwin was entertained at a welcome social at the Methodist schoolroom last Tuesday evening. *** AN important conference between shire councillors and the committee of the Frankston Soldiers Memorial Committee took place yesterday, when an understanding was arrived at on the question of site. Full details will appear in next issue. *** AN Anzac Memorial Service will be held in the Frankston Park next Sunday, at 3 o’clock. The Rev. Geo. Cox will deliver the address. There will be special singing, and the Frankston Brass Band will play a selected programme. *** EXTRA seating accommodation is be-

ing provided to meet the requirements of the record attendance expected at the Frankston Hall next Monday night, 26th inst. The presentation of 1914 Military stars will naturally prove a great draw, and in addition, provision has been made for a high-class concert programme, contributed entirely by the pick of Melbourne’s professional artists. The box plan may be seen at Messrs Brody and Mason’s. *** Frankston Movies. Last Wednesday night the Frankston Pictures again attracted a large audience. Next Wednesday the attraction will be Mary Pickford in “How Could You Jean”, and Wallace Reid in “The Man from Funeral Range”. *** MESSERS G. E. Rogers and Son’s grocery department is now under the management of a first class grocer, with a lengthy city experience. *** Heard in the Train Orange blossoms at Somerville attracted a notable gathering of the clans last Wednesday. Visiting soldiers will be entertained at Frankston by the Wattle Club on Sunday, 2nd May, when the Frankston Brass Band will supply the musical programme. Councillors have agreed to support the site chosen by the committee for the Frankston Soldiers’ Memorial. A deputation from Seaford intend waiting on the Frankston Progress Association next Tuesday night, to

discuss the Kananook Creek improvement scheme. Major Conder will take his place in the football field tomorrow with the Frankston boys in the match, Frankston v Somerville. Next Sunday, Anzac Memorial Services will be held in the Frankston park at 8 o’clock. *** FERRETS. (2) for sale. Champion Workers, complete with nets, carrying boxes and hutches. Kananook Pines, Melbourne Road, Frankston. *** The Electric Light To the Editor. At last we have the truth. I have received the following letter from Mr. Ditchburn, the managing director of the Electric Light Co: “Your letter of 14th inst. to hand. My objection was that this office was not made acquainted with the complaints, and if it had, explanations would have been forthcoming, which should have rendered unnecessary a letter to the press. The difficulty of maintaining a service at all during the past few months has been no easy matter. Coal was only made available a short time before the Easter holidays, and it did not give us a chance of preparing a stock of gas for gas supply and running the electric plant; and to meet the big demands for the Easter consumption. To pull through we had to exercise caution in the use of gas for the running of the electric plant. Coal then, and still, is controlled by

the Navy Department, and we have to take what is apportioned to us or leave it. Some of the coal we had was low in gas value, which added to the trouble. We are now building up our gas stock in holder. A matter we have also in hand is to add another electric generator which would enable us to give a larger and better supply, but so far we have not been able to find one. It is impossible in a small works with limited staff to approach a city service. Our staff have had a good deal of hard work and difficult conditions to meet of late, and if complaints have not received consideration it is because they could do nothing to remedy same. Take, for example, the water supply reticulation now being proceeded with; our staff have to constantly be on the tracks of this work to prevent, as far as possible, damage to our gas mains and services. We have over 10 miles of mains to look after, and only as many consumers on the lines as a city or suburban service would have in a street half a mile long, which can easily be patrolled. Branches of trees and scrub swaying by the wind often affect the service. I have written you very fully so that you and others may to some extent realise our position.” *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 23 April 1920

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Apocalypse Diaries – Part Two By Stuart McCullough I’VE been watching a lot of television. And for someone who grew up in the eighties, the era during which watching television was first considered a valid lifestyle choice, that’s really saying something. In many respects, I was at a forefront, cramming in as much ‘box time’ as I possibly could every day. Between the ages of twelve and sixteen, any exposure I had to natural sunlight was an accident. I learned a lot. From Simon Townsend, I learned that the world’s a better place if you’re optimistic. I also learned that a chest chain should be avoided. At all costs. From Shirl’s Neighborhood, I discovered there’s life after rock stardom, even if it involves puppets. And from The Fall Guy I learned that Lee Majors is a human wombat and cannot be harmed by conventional weapons. In fact, television taught me almost everything I know. My parents were aghast at the amount of television I watched and claimed my eyes would turn square. These alarmist claims lacked any real science to back them up. Suffice to say, not once did I hear Rob or Deane on The Curiosity Show discuss television and the risk of your eyes changing shape. Square eyes or not, it was a risk worth taking. Having devoted so much of my childhood to the idiot box, I have been perfectly ready to spend vast amounts of time at home. This, quite frankly, is my moment. With social distancing in full effect, there’s never been a better time to plonk yourself down artlessly on the couch and tune into something that runs for hours and hours. But it’s been a while since I’ve really given the box enough time and, frankly, things have changed. Simon Townsend is nowhere to be seen. Those reliable, formulaic weekly shows like The Fall Guy that were neat little pieces of harmless entertainment with a self-contained beginning, middle and end have all been replaced. These days, everyone

wants to be edgy and you have to invest in watching at least thirty episodes if you want to have any idea what’s going on. I watched Married at First Sight. I’ll admit it put a sizeable dent in faith in humanity. After only a few minutes, I was overwhelmed by references to ‘the experiment’. Being a person of science, I was instantly hooked. After a few more minutes, it became blindingly obvious that so far as ‘the experiment’ went, this was less CSIRO and Bunsen burners and more The Island of Doctor Moreau in a kind of completedisregard-for-ethical-standards-man-meetspuma/human-animal-hybrid way. It’s tough

viewing. I’ve watched several episodes and the rules of ‘the experiment’ are yet to be explained. So far, the sliding door at the chic loft they use to host the dinner parties has not rolled back to reveal Doctor Moreau. Whether it has revealed ‘beast folk’ all depends on your point of view. But if I were to guess, I would say the experiment has something to do with the effects of alcohol in large quantities on a group of people who may well take Instagram seriously. I can honestly say, I have never before watched so much of anything while looking through my fingers. My concern about Married at First Sight is

that there’s insufficient emphasis on the science. There’s no host as such, and I think that could well be part of the problem. Instead, there are three alleged experts who look as if they’ve just been dragged in from the set of a Demtel commercial. Science is all about credibility. Which is why, next year, they should get Rob and Deane from The Curiosity Show to host Married at First Sight. Imagine the surprised look on the faces of the contestants when Rob and Deane, still dressed in figure-hugging skivvies as though it’s 1978, tell the contestants that they’re going to teach them how to build meaningful and committed relationships and that all they’ll need is a cardboard box, a safety knife and some glue. That’s television. I’ve also been watching Netflix. Mostly the index. For some reason, I have great trouble deciding which series to invest my time in and, as a result, I end up scrolling through the index for hours on end. It’s kind of like walking up and down a smorgasbord without eating anything. I did start watching Ozark which features that guy from Teen Wolf 2 and it’s probably the darkest thing I’ve ever seen. By which I mean, it’s almost impossible to see anything. Even daylight looks like night time and it’s as if all the cameras are wearing sunglasses. Despite my misgivings, I’m already two seasons in. My father treated TV with disdain. To him it was the ‘idiot box’ and programs on it were ‘chewing gum for the eyes’. Then the theme music to All Creatures Great and Small would start up and he’d be backside down in a chair faster than you can say ‘James Herriot’. I hope he’s watching it now and enjoying himself. With self-isolation, we’re in the middle of a great social experiment, hopefully overseen by Rob and Deane of The Curiosity Show. The results of which, I hope, will show the world really is wonderful. Simon Townsend would approve. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Season could start in July SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FOOTBALL Victoria may soon announce a July start to the 2020 season. Last week Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the federal government wanted to get Australians back into recreational sport “as soon as we can” and the national cabinet of state and territory leaders agreed to develop principles for sport and recreation to get consistency across the country. FV and Football Federation Australia would have to sign off on a series of bio-security measures and how they would be monitored but it increasingly looks like training could resume in June with a 22-game season starting in the first weekend in July and ending in November. There would be no catch-up rounds and postponed matches would be played midweek. FV recently surveyed clubs to ascertain ground availability and Mornington and Peninsula Strikers are the latest local clubs to join Frankston Pines in offering to host matches for clubs who only have winter tenancy. FV’s competitions department has been entrusted with the task of developing season scenarios but the state body has been forced to stand down over 50% of its staff and it’s believed that just two employees remain in competitions. They are being assisted by Will Hastie, executive manager of football operations, who along with FV CEO Peter Filopoulos and Matt Green, senior manager business operations, receives a daily briefing from FFA on the federal government position. FV also is in regular contact with the state government as agreement to start training and kick-start the season requires the approval of Victoria’s chief medical officer Professor Brett Sutton. Clubs are now faced with an unprecedented set of challenges and the disruption to revenue streams in the current climate will have a far-reaching impact on their financial security. Langwarrin, Mornington and Peninsula Strikers are the local clubs with the largest wage bill and plans are already underway to address the widening chasm between planned expenditure and expected income. To an extent Langy and Mornington are cushioned from the full impact of

the economic downturn as the bulk of their sponsorship comes from the construction industry but they’ve already taken a financial hit with more expected. The flow-on effect of a dramatic drop in income seems certain to force clubs to renegotiate terms with players. “Everything is up for review,” Langy president Tanya Wallace said. “We’ve had some registration fees paid and some sponsorship but that’s all. “We’ve discussed this with Scott (Miller, head coach) and at committee level and we’ll have to sit down with the playing group and sort things out. “We won’t do the wrong thing by the players but by the same token we won’t put the club in jeopardy by trying to accommodate players either. “It’s going to be a balancing act and we’ll see how we go.” Mornington president Matt Cameron faces a potential $60,000 shortfall in sponsorship. “The majority of money we use for wages is raised through sponsorship so things are very uncertain now,” he said. “Our sponsorship is normally all in by the start of the season but that’s not the case this time round so my discussions with our sponsors will determine

whether we need to make any changes. “Although we’ve made agreements with everyone the landscape’s changed dramatically and in terms of sponsorship I could be down up to $60,000 which has to come from somewhere. “Raising revenue at home games is another important part of paying players’ wages and how the new season may look with regard to attendances at games doesn’t look promising. “We also need to look at the huge cost of cleaning and policing things properly and how do community clubs monitor that?” Cameron isn’t relishing the prospect of sitting down with players to discuss terms again but he understands the likelihood of having to do so. “It’s obviously going to be a hard conversation but everyone in these times understands that everyone is suffering. “A lot of this comes down to the relationship you have with your players.” Strikers president Adrian Scialpi may face the prospect of ditching match payments altogether and the Centenary Park outfit has discussed the issue at executive committee level. “We’re just starting to get our heads around what the season may look like and how we’ll be impacted by, say, re-

strictions on crowds for example which would trash your matchday revenue,” he said. “That money goes towards paying referees and some of it goes towards player wages so if that’s gone then you have to get the playing group together and have a chat about the situation. “Look there’s probably only going to be one way forward and that’s going to be very limited wages if any. “Our hope is that if we end up with no money coming in then the players will understand that and we’re not going to be different from any other club as we’re all in the same boat here. “We’d love to think that football takes precedence over money but the reality is that for some guys it may not. “We’ve registered most of our guys and really if they want to go and play for big dollars I honestly don’t know where they’ll go because other clubs can’t commit to paying big money any more.” Scialpi is hopeful that a strong bond between player and club will provide a good outcome for both parties. “Although we’ve turned over a lot of players in the off-season I’d like to think we’ve created a lot of goodwill in the squad already in the short time we’ve had them together.

“We’ve got some wonderful guys in that group like Danny Brooks, Danny Black and Tommy Hawkins that really keep all the boys together. “It’s great to have these guys here and I think they will help us through this season because they have an underlying love for the club. “Wouldn’t it be great if all the clubs kept all their players and we just got on with the season without money being an issue and affecting people’s decisions?” Scialpi and his committee are acutely aware that a number of sponsorship agreements struck before the covid-19 pandemic won’t be honoured and he accepts the inevitability of that situation. “Look at someone like Beretta’s (Langwarrin Hotel) for argument’s sake. “I can’t go back to Jacqui Beretta and ask ‘where’s your money for this season’ because their establishment might not be fully up and running till the end of the year for all we know. “I mean they’ve got no bar revenue, no money from the pokies and no money from the bistro.” Like many club presidents Scialpi also wondered what FV has planned when it comes to fees and charges. “We’d all love to know what they’re going to do with their fees. “Surely they are going to have to alter their thinking and help clubs now that our revenue streams are so badly affected.” If clubs are not given any financial breathing space by the governing body it will be interesting to see how they respond. There’s already been talk among clubs about this and the last thing the sport needs is a battle between the governing body and its constituents. What would FV do if clubs banded together and simply refused to pay all or part of the fees? Fining clubs would seem a futile exercise right now while docking points could seriously undermine the integrity of FV’s own competitions.

McArdle’s Derby hopeful moves forward HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou JOHN McArdle’s consistent stayer, Themoonlitegambler, has taken another promising step towards the Group One South Australian Derby (2500m) on Saturday 9 May. The three-year-old gelding backed up his solid third placing in the Listed Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) with another gutsy performance in the Group Three Chairman’s Stakes at Morphettville on Saturday 25 April. Having sat outside the lead, jockey Emily Finnegan got going 800m out from home and gave a great sight in the straight before the race-favourite and leading SA Derby contender, Dalasan, gained the lead inside the final 100m. Themoonlitegambler stuck on nicely for second place and finished just over a length off the Macdonald/ Gluyas-trained galloper. Pinecliff, Mt Eliza-based trainer Anthony Freedman also had last year’s Victoria Derby winner, Warning, launch late in the event to grab third having come off the bit well before the home turn. Mornington-based trainer John McArdle was happy with the way his galloper is progressing into his main target. “He ran well yesterday,” McArdle said. “He probably got going a bit too early, but he stuck to his guns well. He’s pulled up good and we’ll be going back in two weeks for the Derby.” It’s shaping as a high-class affair but both the McArdle-trained run-

ner, Themoonlitegambler, and Freedman’s, Warning, should both relish the extra 500m of the Derby trip. But can the South Australian galloper and Derby favourite, Dalasan, show his brilliance over the extra trip? Co-trainer Leon Mcdonald

seems to think so after claiming his fifth Chairman’s Stakes victory, of which one, Rebel Raider, managed to go on and complete the double back in 2009. “Rebel Raider was just an out-andout stayer, but this horse has got more

brilliance than Rebel,” Macdonald said post-race. “He stayed very well today. He does make his own luck a fair bit.” McArdle knows there’s a task ahead in the Derby but said he was hopeful heading in.

“It’ll be very hard [to beat Dalasan], but we’ll be trying.” Themoonlitegambler’s record currently sits at two wins and four minor placings from seven starts, and just shy of $70,000 in prize money.
