Bay Trail safety report to proceed Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A REPORT investigating the safety of works along the Bay Trail will proceed after a rescission motion failed at Kingston Council’s most recent meeting.

In February, council voted to “prepare a report (…) detailing the number and nature of safety related incidents that have occurred during the construction phase of the Baytrail. The report should include matters that relate to safe work practices and road safety and should detail the re-

sponses and remedies that have taken place as a result.” At their latest meeting councillors debated the merits of the report again, but ended up narrowly voting against a rescission. Cr Steve Staikos, who moved to rescind the successful vote for a safety

report, said “I believe the officers have been very competently and very conscientiously updating councillors on all of these matters as they are coming up, so in effect we are getting periodic reports sent to us as councillors and this would be an additional and unnecessary step to take.”

Councillors Staikos, Ron Brownlees, and Rosemary West voted to call off the safety report. Crs Tamsin Bearlsey, Geoff Gledhill, and George Hua supported it going ahead. The mayor Georgina Oxley and Cr David Eden both abstained from voting, meaning the rescission motion was lost.

‘Mistakes made’ at Cove site Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A LEGAL review ordered by Kingston Council into planning decisions at Endeavour Cove in Patterson Lakes has been completed. A council statement confirmed that a review into planning decisions made at the site has been conducted by Hall and Willcox Lawyers. Kingston mayor Georgina Oxley said “while the law firm’s findings found no evidence of corruption or fraud, it did identify a number of mistakes made and we are now focusing on putting in place stronger controls to ensure no future errors are made.” The statement read that “unusual planning controls” were to blame for a number of “errors” made. They included “a six storey apartment building built on a site identified for car parking, approval [being] given for buildings that were taller than should be allowed including a four storey building built where only two-three storeys were allowed, and townhouses [being] approved in an area that was meant to be open space and pedestrian walkways.” Recent development plans at the Cove site have included the construction of two 10 storey buildings. A 66 dwelling building for 64 Pier One Drive, a 142 dwelling building for 54 Pier One Drive, and a building with 28 dwellings for 115A McLeod Road have made the plans (“Investigation called into Cove development”, The News, 30/10/19). Late last year VCAT knocked back a parking reduction for one of the planned 10 storey buildings. Founder of resident group Carrum and Patterson Lakes Forum, Cameron Howe, said “dogged by missing records to support decisions, the

Picture: Gary Sissons

report confirms planning concessions enabled overdevelopment, through the approval of buildings taller than permitted and the development of designated open space and car parking. It reiterates the non-compliance of the current application, which has not been appropriately managed resulting in community uproar.” “Arguing that the planning scheme is ambiguous and continuing to approve developments for almost 20 years, demonstrates poor process control that wouldn’t stand up in the business world. In almost two decades no-one thought something was wrong? In business we do not

allow incompetent decisions to continue for almost two decades. “Living in Patterson Lakes is a lifestyle choice for many, who enjoy the close connection to the bay and river. Preserving the outlook to Patterson River is critical and the impacts of overdevelopment are a leading community concern.” Council says it will prepare background work for “a potential planning scheme amendment to update the planning controls for the area”. Council says the review conducted by Hall and Willcox recommended “stricter consideration of planning applications by two senior

staff to ensure they are properly allocated and processed, improved advertising of applications to make sure the community is well informed, improved responses to community requests for planning information, and improved notification to councillors of significant applications in the area to ensure they can keep the community informed”. It was also recommended that council “educate staff on the review findings and improved processes to ensure no further errors are made” and “seek legal advice on any planning matters within the Comprehensive Development Zone (Schedule 1)”.

New visitor restrictions at hospital PENINSULA Health has revised its visiting rules to help stop the spread of coronavirus. Visitors are no longer permitted to enter the Intensive Care Unit, Acute Medical Surgical Unit and Ward 5GN at Frankston Hospital. Peninsula Health CEO Felicity Topp

said in a social media announcement that “with increasing numbers of patients coming into the organisation we are concerned for your safety and our staff’s safety.” “We’ve made a very tough decision about ceasing all visitors to areas where we do have COVID-19 positive

patients. I know this is extremely difficult for people and we do understand, therefore we will try and facilitate conversation, discussions, and updates of patients’ conditions using technology that we can provide to you and your loved one while they are in hospital.”

THE I-MED radiology clinic in Frankston has closed after staff members tested positive to COVID-19. A joint statement issued last week by I-MED Radiology CEO Dr Shrey Viranna and Chief Medical Officer Dr Ron Shnier read that “a number of our employees at Frankston Radiology have tested positive for COVID-19.” “We have worked with the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure any patients who had experienced close contact with the employees were notified. In addition all employees who had experienced close contact have self isolated for 14 days and have been tested before recommencing work,” the statement read. “As an essential healthcare service provider, I-MED Radiology is committed to maintaining our services to practitioners and patients during the current coronavirus pandemic. Our priority is also ensuring the safety of all patients and our clinical staff. To this end we are following all guidelines issued by the Australian Department of Health for healthcare environments. “Our procedure is to close the clinic while we conduct a full sanitisation and disinfection of the facility, at which point it will reopen and resume providing vital patient services.” The statement read that “given the current environment an increasing number of healthcare workers will test positive to COVID-19 in the coming months.”

Supermarket cuts hours FRANKSTON Woolworths will operate under reduced hours to help provide home deliveries. The Frankston branch will become a “priority delivery hub” and be open from 9am - 6pm each day. Woolworths managing director Claire Peters said the extra hours would be used to catch up with increased demand for deliveries from the elderly and people with a disability, compromised immunity, or in mandatory isolation. “Following an extraordinary level of demand for groceries in recent weeks, reducing trading hours in some of our stores to turn them into priority delivery hubs will help us assist more people who can’t access a store to get products they need,” she said.

Assault investigated AN assault in St Kilda is being investigated by police. Just after 8pm, 13 March, a 41-yearold man was assaulted while standing outside a licensed premise on the corner of Grey and Barkly streets. A conversation between the victim and two unknown men turned physi-

cal. Police say the victim pushed one of the men away, and that the man then struck him in the face. The victim fell back and his head hit the ground. The offender was wearing a black long sleeve top and shorts. He and the other man left south on Barkly Street. An image of a man police wish to

speak to has been released (below). Any information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Man dies in crash A MAN died in a three-vehicle collision at Frankston South, Friday 3 April. He was the driver of a van which was extensively damaged when it hit a four-wheel-drive causing it to crash into a truck north-bound on Peninsula Link, near Robinsons Road, about 6.40am. The men driving the grey fourwheel-drive and the truck, both sole occupants, were taken to hospital with minor injuries. Drivers were advised to avoid Peninsula Link where possible. Earlier, five cars were involved in a nose-to-tail south-bound on Peninsula Link near the Stony Point railway bridge, 6.15am, Friday 3 April. Sergeant Bruce Buchan, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the first car had “appeared to come to a complete stop” while heading south in the right lane causing the car behind to crash into it. The driver of the second car jumped out and ran to get a child out of the back seat while the third, fourth and fifth cars crashed into each other from behind. Debris was strewn along Peninsula Link. Three drivers were injured. One was taken to The Alfred hospital and two to Frankston Hospital. Sergeant Buchan said investigations were continuing into why the first driver appeared to stop unexpectedly. “It is a 100kph zone and stopping is extremely dangerous because, as happened, it can set off a chain reaction,” he said. Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage of either incident to contact Crime

Frankston Council okays cash for COVID-19 relief Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au

MORE than $3 million of ratepayer money is set to be put aside by council to help people affected by the coronavirus pandemic. On 30 March Frankston Council endorsed their draft annual budget, which will go out to public consultation before being given final approval. They agreed to put together a coronavirus care package with $3 million from their strategic reserves, and $370,000 reallocated from other projects and programs. Council CEO Phil Cantillon wrote in the draft budget that “with the financial uncertainty surrounding the impacts of the coronavirus, council proposes to set aside a provision of up to $3 million once-off care package available from the 2020-2021 financial year.” “Council will be in a better position to determine the needs of the municipality over the coming months and will consider what the priorities are to deliver services and infrastructure for the community,” he wrote. “These funds will be drawn down from council reserves that have been earmarked to deliver major projects in future years. This will not have a short term impact on the delivery of projects that were scheduled to be delivered in the long term infrastructure plan over the next four years.” Council’s last annual report released at the end of the 2018/2019 financial year showed that council had just under $26 million in their strategic asset reserve. Councillors also voted “to not apply any penalty interest for the remainder of the rating year which will be further reviewed over the next rating period, to suspend any legal action for the recovery of rates for the remainder of the rating year which will be further reviewed over the next rating period, and for those operators that have closed and seek to resume business

within three months after the emergency lockdown is lifted, provide free food registration and kerbside trading fees.” Refunds will be provided for food registrations and kerbside trading fees subsequent to operators closing, and rent will be waived for council commercial tenants until 30 June 2020. Projects including a mural on the corner of Station Street and Nepean Highway, Seaford,

a moon and fairy lighting trial, boulevard tree planting, and electric box beautification had funds reallocated from them into the coronavirus care package. Removing funds from footpath constructions at Spruce St and Mitre Crescent was considered, but councillors vetoed it. Cr Quinn McCormack advocated for the reallocation of money from other projects. She said the budget had been drafted “without considera-

tion of hardship that the majority of the community are facing with job losses, partners out of work, and the difficulties of managing sick relatives or loved ones.” “We will do our best to be agile and adjust the budget to address their concerns,” she said. Cr Glenn Aitken agreed to the passed budget changes, but said “if my ward is targeted again you are going to hear a scream.”

Coronvirus situation gives us a chance to rethink If you have ever seen the film The day the Earth stood still you will probably find similarities between it and the world at present. Now is the time to rethink our situation brought on by COVID-19. The planes have stopped, rampant consumerism has slowed, the importance of Australian made goods is obvious and the concept of national sovereignty, but national co-operation is clear. The Earth has breathing space and we should use this opportunity to rethink and moderate what we are doing to the environment that keeps us alive. It is time for politicians and people to adopt strategies for a sustainable future or future generations will suffer an. Environmental meltdown far worse than the privations and sadness of COVID-19. Henry Kelsall, the Sustainable Future Association, Frankston

Train ‘games’ It’s always disappointing when a politician plays silly political games, let alone during a national health and economic crisis. Paul Edbrooke’s comments in ‘Rail extension at a ‘standstill’ (The News, 30/3/20) is game-playing at its worst. Edbrooke knows that the state governmentprepared preliminary business case (PBC) for the Frankston rail extension was submitted to the Morrison government six months late and that it is now being actively considered. Since the federal government received the PCB in late 2019, it has been dealing with the drought, bushfires and now COVID-19. As everyone knows, we have a budgeted commitment of $225 million for this project on top of the existing $4 million for the PCB. We want this rail extension, but cannot do it without buyin and engagement from the state government. In a twist of irony, Edbrooke has achieved nothing towards getting his government to con-

tribute one cent to the project. Considering our government funded his government to write the PBC, one would assume Edbrooke has seen it and presume the reason he hasn’t leaked it is so that he has fodder for his foolish games. Interestingly, the project he has spruiked in the past, the redevelopment of the Frankston Hospital, hasn’t progressed since it was announced two years ago. Out of the $562 billion the state government announced at the 2018 state election, only $6 million has been budgeted this financial year and construction continues to be kicked down the line. Contrastingly, the Morrison Government is getting on with the job of delivering a $32 million Health Futures Hub and $10 million paediatric ward at Frankston Hospital without any state contribution. Rather than playing the fool, Edbrooke should get his government to commit to funding its share of the Frankston rail extension. David Van, Liberal Senator

Safety from soap I would like to recommend an anti-viral procedure that I have adopted, which is to carry a half filled bucket of soapy water in the back of the car, with a bar of soap and a roll of paper. Upon leaving any shop, shopping centre, bank or public place, we wash our hands in this water before driving away. We also drop any change money in and wash that at the same time. Handrails, trolleys, seats, escalators, shelves; all may be contaminated, as well as money, so this seems to be a good practice. The basis for this action is that qualified scientists seem to be agreed that that plain old soap is the most effective way of destroying coronavirus COVID-19, even better than alcohol. The soap’s properties cause disruption to the shell layers of the virus causing the whole thing

to fall apart and be destroyed. It would probably be an ideal procedure for trains, even buses, since you don’t need running water, just refresh the bucket or trough often. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Hundreds of elephants in are dire trouble in Thailand. While the human factor of the ongoing catastrophic pandemic is very real in Thailand, the welfare needs of the endangered animals should be alerted to. The wealthy in the world should act immediately. Anyone who has contacts with American philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg or Australians John and Pauline Gandel, Frank Lowy, Louise Tuckwell, John Kinghorn, Nicola and Andrew Forrest, the Pratt family, Gina Rinehart and Dick Smith should ask them to urgently act and do what they can to save these amazing animals. These people could be the lifeline to these desperate, magnificent animals. How many other animals are now in trouble because of our inhumanity and lack of action. Denise Hassett, Mount Martha

When is Frankston Council going to clear the drain on corner of High street and FrankstonFlinders Road? Every time it rains the road floods and just putting up a sign is not good enough. As well as being a nuisance to pedestrians it is also dangerous to traffic. Trevor Billson, Tuerong

Release refugees Concerns about the ongoing inhumane policies and treatment of refugees and asylum seekers are still not being addressed by the federal government. Denise Hassett refers to the depiction of these shown in the ABC TV production “Stateless”, a harrowing reminder of why we continue to challenge this unjust treatment of people fleeing danger in their own countries (“State of shame” Letters 25/3/20). A rally calling for justice for refugees was to be held Sunday 5 April but has been postponed due to the social restraints caused by COVID-19. But refugees and asylum seekers confined in detention centres and city motels now face additional health risks during this pandemic. It is impossible for them to practice social distancing when they are regularly patted down by security. They are dependent on authorities to provide soap and antiseptics. For years they have endured the confronting strictures of confinement and isolation, and the resulting ongoing mental health issues. While we in the community learn to live with new restraints to safeguard our health and wellbeing, and with access to many resources, these people are deprived of many of these supports and safeguards. Why can’t our government transfer refugees into the community – as the British government

Help the elephants

Time to turn vegan Perhaps COVID-19 will give us an opportunity to rethink some things we take for granted. While we are suffering anxiety and discomfort, let’s take a moment to empathise with the terrified animals who are torn away from their families, kept in tiny cages, deprived of everything they enjoy, and brutally killed, simply because humans like the taste of their flesh. Animal agriculture kill billions of animals every year and is a leading cause of climate change, but it is also a breeding ground for the viruses and bacteria that cause pandemics. Our suffering is necessary and temporary; theirs is routine and will continue for as long as we subsidise it through our grocery expenditure. That’s why caring people are opting for tasty vegan foods rather than animal-based ones. Going vegan is the sensible thing to do for your health and the wellbeing of others.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Call to curtail ‘dazzling headlights’ Compiled by Cameron McCullough A SEAFORD correspondent writes:– It seems evident that there are no motor headlight laws in Victoria, or if there are, very little attention is paid to them. Any night on Point Nepean Road, users of this road become subjected to the blinding glare of what are known as “dazzle hogs.” In many countries, headlight laws exist, which not only protect motorists, but the public generally. These laws are compulsory, and a heavy fine is imposed upon those who disregard them. It is high time some action was taken to enforce some such law here, and a strong move should be made by the Progress Association to have these “dazzle hogs” put down. Motor car makers have solved the problem of controlling the headlight rays, so that the maximum light is given for driving, and, at the same time, the blinding glare is completely eliminated. Come on Seaford Progress Association. *** MISS Nellie Thomson, who has been holidaying in Queensland, where her relatives reside, returned to Frankston this week, and has resumed her business as dressmaker, milliner, draper, & c. *** A NEW industry has just commenced at Baxter, in the shape of saw-mills and case-making factory. The enterprising proprietor is Mr. H. C. Barclay, who advertises in another column that he is prepared to purchase pine trees, blue gum and stringy bark.

A grand musical evening and dance has been arranged, when a first-class musical programme and other items will be submitted. Funds are required to liquidate the amount due on the purchase of instruments and music, and, this fact being generally known, there should be no lack of response on the part of the public. *** A CRICKET match between teams from the Phillip Island Cricket Association and the Peninsula Cricket Association will be played on the Tyabb cricket ground next Saturday afternoon, April 3rd (Easter Saturday). Several of the leading players from the various Peninsula clubs will take part, and the match promises to be a great “go.” Lunch and afternoon tea will be handed to the players of the contesting teams taking part by the local ladies. As the Tyabb cricket ground is very suitable for picnic parties, there promises to be a large attendance. ***

REV. E. Tonkin preached his farewell sermon at Frankston on Sunday last, when a large congregation assembled at the evening service. After four years’ highly successful ministry in this district, the Rev. Tonkin goes to the Cheltenham charge. His successor at Frankston is Rev. C. Angwin, of Kilmore. *** THE Frankston Soldiers’ Memorial Committee met on Monday night; Mr. A. G. Wilcox presiding. The Secretary, Mr. H. Vicars, stated that he had been in communication with the Defence authorities, who stated that a number of 1914-15 stars would be available for presentation on Anzac night, 25th April. He also read a letter from MajorGeneral Grimwade, consenting to present same. The committee decided to hold a high-class concert on the occasion, and a sub-committee, consisting of Cr. Mason, Mr. A. E. Lasslett, J.P., the President and Secretary, was appointed to arrange the programme, and to engage Melbourne talent. Tickets will be sold at 1s 6d, and a limited number of reserved chairs at 5s. The box plan will be on view at Messrs. Brody & Mason’s. A decoration sub-committee was appointed, consisting of Messrs. Morrison, A. Hill, W. Hanton, and M. Brody. The occasion is to be made a notable one from every standpoint, and a special committee has been appointed to wrestle with the problem of providing

adequate seating accommodation. *** THIS week, at the instance of the Frankston Progress Association, a plebiscite of the business people of Frankston was taken, on the question of closing shops from 12.30 to 1.30 p.m. daily. Mr A..E. Lasslett. J.P., and the Secretary of the Association conducted the voting arrangements. The result shows that, while a majority favored the proposal, a large percentage of the whole were opposed to the innovation. An examination of the voting cards gave the following figures: YES: 22 NO: 14 The voting cards issued numbered 46, and it may be taken for granted that the ten who did not return their papers were either opposed to the scheme, or felt quite indifferent as to the result. Under the circumstances, it is probable that the idea of introducing midday closing into Frankston at present will not be proceeded with. *** TO the many anxious enquiries received as to the condition of Mr. James Grice, it is pleasing to be able to state that he is now progressing favorably. His medical attendant is Dr. Maxwell, of Frankston. *** MR. L. J. Ward, who recently underwent a serious operation at “Lancewood” Private Hospital, Kew, hopes to be able to resume duty at the local railway station next week.

IN THE

His many friends will be pleased to see this popular officer back in harness again. *** Heard in the Train The Shire Council is to be asked to reconsider its action in prohibiting Sunday tennis in Frankston. It is argued that the prohibition debars many visitors from enjoying healthy recreation, and offers no adequate substitute. The Anglican Synod in Newt South Wales recently declared in favor of Sunday tennis. Kananook Creek is to be stirred up again shortly, when all land owners abutting thereon will discuss the why and the wherefore at Seaford. It is high time some definite decision was arrived at regarding this difficult problem. At present every other person has a different solution to offer. Enterprising burglars are now working full time. When the weekender goes to the sea-side, Bill Sykes gets to work on the town house. He then devotes the early part of the week to plundering temporarily vacated bungalows along the foreshore. Seaford is considering the question of appointing a watchman as a means of protecting week-end residences against these unwelcome visitors. Nothing heard about Frankston light supply lately, and now the gas is beginning to “talk’ again. Time those long promised purifiers got to work. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 2 April 1920

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Becoming the Hype Man of my Dreams By Stuart McCullough I’D assumed my chance had passed me by. Much like the time I turned forty and realized I’d never be a regular cast member of Young Talent Time (despite knowing all the lyrics to ‘All My Loving’), this was yet another example of an ambition destined to remain unfulfilled. But then fate intervened. And, just like that, a hope I’d though had been extinguished has flickered back into glorious life. There’s no time to waste – who knows when another chance might come along? This could be my only chance to become Public Enemy’s new ‘Hype Man’. Many of you will have questions. Like ‘when will I be able buy toilet paper like I used to?’ and ‘who thought it was a good idea to hoard all the egg plants?’ Those of you who are paying attention to this story might instead ask, ‘who or what is Public Enemy?’ In a fair and just world, there’d be no need to ask, such would be the notoriety of one of the planet’s most influential rap groups. Public Enemy were my first real exposure to rap music. Before then, I’d heard schoolmates recite the lyrics to ‘The Message’ by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. There was something about saying the words ‘It makes me wonder sometimes how I keep from going under’ while dressed in school uniform that was oddly liberating. But at that time, it seemed more a novelty. It didn’t help much that rap music was often openly derided. But then I encountered Public Enemy. My youngest brother was a

fan and had video taped an interview with someone called ‘Chuck D’. I’m not sure how I stumbled across it, but I did. I don’t know what I was expecting, but probably something far less eloquent than Chuck D was. Here was a highly intelligent person who had interesting things to say about almost everything. It’s true that I became a fan before hearing a note. After the interview, they played a video to a song entitled ‘Brothers Gonna Work it Out’. Put simply, it was incredible. Over a beat and what sounded like a sample of Prince’s guitar, the band delivered a message with undeniable fury and political potency. I was hooked. The production was amazing. And, in addition to Chuck D,

there was Flavor Flav; a charismatic court-jester who wore a large clock around his neck so he always knew ‘what time’ it was. Punctuality was clearly important to him. Flavor Flav was Public Enemy’s ‘Hype Man’. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a ‘Hype Man’ is the person in a rap group who’s not the main rapper, but whose job it is to support his or her colleague as they attempt to construct an empire of rhyme in front of an expectant audience. A Hype Man (sorry, it should probably be ‘person’) achieves this by dancing and by making the occasional interjection. Without seeking to disrespect past or current Hype Men of humanity who might well be reading this article,

it’s less labour-intensive than being the front man. In fact, it’s kind of the equivalent of part time work in the hip-hop universe. Terms like ‘yo!’, ‘yeah!’ and ‘hit it!’ are all part of the rich lexicon of a Hype Man. It truly is the role I was born to play. However, it’s very hard to be an effective Hype Man if you don’t have anyone to hype. It’s really just one random person making an interjection apropos of nothing if you’re doing by yourself. In the right context, ‘hit it!’ can be exhilarating. By itself, it’s downright confusing. Flavor Flav was a terrific Hype Man, and he really knew how to build the excitement levels. For more than thirty years, he worked with Chuck D

and they seemed kind of inseparable until, a few weeks ago, they separated. Doubtless, the oversized clock around his neck told him it was time to leave. It’s sad beyond measure that Flavor Flav has departed Public Enemy. It’s also an opportunity. I suppose I never really thought about becoming a Hype Man in a serious way because the job I coveted simply wasn’t available. Until now. The odds, however, are against me. That said, the rap game is all about surprise, and there would be no bigger surprise possible that appointing as Flavor Flav’s replacement a middle-aged white guy from Tyabb. While I can see those attributes could well count against me, I already own a tracksuit and am prepared to secure my own oversized clock. Besides, I have ideas on how to take the group into the twenty first century. For starters, the new clock will be digital and will not be adjusted for daylight savings. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve written to Chuck D, but I’m yet to hear back. Chances are he’s been flooded with applications from middleaged white men like me who want to fulfill a childhood dream. I keep waiting for the phone to ring while staring at the clock that, somewhat conveniently, now hangs around my neck. Perhaps some dreams are more potent if they remain anchored in your imagination. So be it. But, if you don’t mind, I’ll wait a little while longer before declaring that my dream of becoming a Hype Man is officially over. Until then, I simply say to you: ‘hit it!’ stuart@stuartmccullough.com

McArdle’s Derby hope ‘heading in right direction’

HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THEMOONLITEGAMBLER is right on track for the South Australian Derby in May for Mornington-based racehorse trainer John McArdle. Despite covering plenty of extra ground in the Listed Dominant Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) on Saturday 4 April, the three-year-old son of Good Journey (USA) continued to hit the line hard for third place behind last year’s Caulfield Guineas favourite, Dalasan. While Dalasan looked to get the dream run through the field, Themoonlitegambler was caught threewide with cover for the entire race before turning into the straight five to six-wide. The Mick Huxtable-trained, Perfect Route, held onto second placing but McArdle’s gelding was gallant in defeat to continue to run through the line after having a tough run throughout. Trainer John McArdle said it was a massive effort from Themoonlitegambler given the run that he had. “He ran huge,” McArdle said. “He covered a massive amount of extra ground and should’ve run a clear second. I don’t know if he would’ve been able to beat Dalasan over 1800m, but he should’ve finished a clear second.” “It’s never perfect when you’re four,

five and six-wide, but he seems to have come through it well. He’ll have three weeks into the Chairman’s Stakes and then two weeks into the Derby so he’s heading in the right direction.” Themoonlitegambler will likely face Dalasan again in the Chairman’s when they step out to the 2000m for the first time, before heading to the 2,500m of the South Australian Derby. McArdle said he has no worries with his gelding stepping over further. “He’ll certainly run out the 2000m of the Chairman’s I would’ve thought – he went close to running that yesterday,” he said. “You don’t know for sure until they do it, but he looks as though he will.” Themoonlitegambler is lightly raced having only had the six career starts and has only missed the placings once in his career to date. His rating currently sits at 67.

Derby hopeful: Themoonlitegambler continues to progress nicely for the South Australian Derby for Mornington trainer John McArdle. Picture: Supplied
