NEW DIRECTOR FOR FESTIVAL Phantom of the Opera
● Toby Truscott (The Phantom) and Laura Slavin (Christine) in CLOC Musical Theatre’s production of The Phantom of the Opera, opening at the National Theatre, St Kilda on May 10. Photo: Richard Crompton ■ Award winning CLOC Musical Theatre is preparing to present its 98th production with a huge coup – the world amateur premiere production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary masterpiece The Phantom Of The Opera. In 1881, far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, lurks the mysterious, disfigured Phantom, shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all. His obsession with his ‘angel of music’, the beautiful young opera singer Christine Daaé, unleashes a diabolical tale of drama, destruction and death – and a unique theatrical experience. Phantom promises to be one of CLOC’s biggest and most complex productions ever, in every facet and department. A superb cast and a multi award-winning production team have been assembled, ready to meet the challenge of this legendary tale and do justice to its reputation as the pinnacle of music theatre excellence. Performances: May 10 (free supper), 11 (free supper), 15, 16, 17, 18, 22, 23, 24, 25 at 8.00pm; May 12, 19 at 2.00pm. Venue: National Theatre, St Kilda Tickets: $50/$45.

● Richard Moore, newly appointed Director of the 2013 Bayside Film Festival
■ The tenth Bayside Film Festival will showcase a unique range of Australian and international films over its four-day season from August 28-31 at the Palace Brighton Bay, 294 Bay St, Brighton. The Festival continues its reputation as a major event by and for young voices, with the inclusion of Jump Cut, the competition element of the festival. In addition to the Festival's programs, the Youth Documentary and Digital Stories Projects, the Bayside Film Festival invites young people to submit works for screening in its Jump Cut sessions. The Festival will provide a platform to present the work of young people from across the nation, plus introduce international participation through the Jump Cut competition. Combined with the Festival's opening and closing events and awards night, the Festival has something for all ages. Bayside City Council has announced the appointment of Richard Moore as Artistic Director of the festival. Richard Moore was a practising documentary film maker from 1990 to 2000, before taking up the position of Executive Producer TV Arts with ABC TV. In 2006 he was appointed Executive Director of the Melbourne International Film Festival and in 2010 was Artistic Director of the Brisbane International Film Festival. With both festivals, Moore was responsible for the curating of the film program as well as developing a series of talks, workshops and special events. Moore says: "I am a firm believer that we can turn this festival, with its focus on new and emerging documentary filmmakers, into a niche event on the Melbourne film calendar." The entries for Jump Cut close Tuesday, April 30. This section is open to 10-26 year olds for films in any genre, up to 15 minutes in length. See www.bayside.vic.gov.au/arts_jump_cut_conditions_ of_entry.htm Details about the Youth Documentary section can be found on www.bayside.vic.gov.au/arts_youth_documentary_project.htm ● A piece of TV memorabilia has been found ... did Bookings to attend the Bayside Film Festival in August will it belong to the late Sir Eric Pearce, Channel 9 be through the Box Office at Palace Brighton Bay, 294 Bay St newsreader?

Christine Harris bounces back with ‘The Club’
● John Wood in The Club ■ Melbourne theatrical producer Christine Harris is bouncing back from recent company difficulties with a production of The Club with John Wood at the Athenaeum Theatre on May 16-18. Harris’s company Hit Productions, with a new name of Follow Your Dreams, went into liquidation owing $692,387 to the Australian Taxation Office. Harris’s company entered liquidation on December 22 with debts totalling about $1.8 million. A new company, also known as Hit Productions, is producing The Club. Publicity for the show was released this week by Di Rolle (who is also a columnist with the Melbourne Observer). The Club is perhaps best known as a movie featuring Graham Kennedy and Jack Thompson. It follows the shift of the footy code from sport to business. It portrays the back room dramas and boardroom brawls that are more ferocious than any on-field dust-up. John Wood returns to the role of Jock for a brand new national tour. Written by Australian playwright David Williamson, The Club is a tale of greed and corruption in the world of sport. Denis Moore, who performed in the 2007-08 tour, returns to the play as director. John Wood says: “The Club is one of the funniest Australian plays ever written. In my opinion it’s got the best first-act ending line of any play, Australian or otherwise. “It makes absolutely certain the audience will be back to see act two! Denis Moore and I performed together in the last tour. More importantly for me, Denis directed A Stretch Of The Imagination in 2009. “I love working with Denis as a director and I’m really looking forward to working with him on this. It’ll be great fun.” Hit Productions is also presenting John Wood in David Williamson’s When Dad Married Fury; Henri Szeps (Mother and Son) in the dark comedy It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To); Alfred Hitchcock adaptation The 39 Steps; and The Book Club starring Helpmann Award-winner Amanda Muggleton. Dates: Thu., May 16 (8pm). Fri., May 17 (11am and 8pm); Sat May 18 (2pm and 8pm). Venue: Athenaeum Theatre, 188 Collins St, Melbourne Tickets: Adults $49.50 - $54.50, Concession $39.50 $44.50, Groups $35 - $40, Students $25 Bookings: 9650 1500.

Driving Miss Daisy Opening Night Comedy Theatre
If you only see one show in a decade, ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ is the one ■ Driving Miss Daisy, starring Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones and Boyd Gaines opened at The Comedy Theatre on Saturday, and will only be here for five weeks. If you only see one show in a decade, Driving Miss Daisy should be your selection. Don’t miss it. Driving Miss Daisy allows Melbourne audiences to see third world-class actors at work. Angela Lansbury, 87, is sprightly and alert, and plays Miss Daisy perfectly. James Earl Jones is commanding, and wins our hearts ... as he does too with Miss Daisy. Tony Award winning Boyd Gaines is the superb schoice as the third-hander. The Comedy stage is sparse for this show, and the theatre fits the show perfectly. It is so good that Observer entertain-
ment columnist Kevin Trask bought tickets for last night’s show (Tuesday), after having first seen the opening night production on Saturday evening. Kevin says: “What a joy it was to be present at the recent press conference to launch the Melbourne season of the play Driving Miss Daisy. As a dedicated film buff it was heaven not only to be in the presence of such famous film and Broadway stars, but to be also given the privilege of asking questions. “When Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones and Boyd Gaines sat down in front of the assembled media at a city hotel it was overwhelming. I did manage to ask Angela Lansbury about her memories of working with Elvis Presley during the filming of Blue Hawaii.
“Angela said that Elvis was the perfect gentleman and treated her very nicely.” Driving Miss Daisy is playing at The Comedy Theatre until May 12. Tickets are available via Ticketmaster 1300 111 011 Thank you to The Frost Organisation for bringing Broadway to Melbourne. ■ Kevin Trask adds: “I couldn't take my eyes off Angela Lansbury - there were so many questions I would have loved to have asked. What were her memories of films such as The Picture Of Dorian Gray, The Harvey Girls, National Velvet, The Court Jester and so many more. But it was a 30-minute press conference that I will never forget.”

● "The List is Life" - Liam Neeson as Oskar Schindler and Sir Ben Kingsley as Itzhak Stern in Steven Spielberg's powerful, haunting and unforgettable Academy award winning Schindler's List: 20th Anniversary Special Edition, now out on Blu-ray and on DVD. FILM: SCHINDLER'S LIST - 20th Anniversary Special Edition: Genre: War/Drama. Cast: Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, Ralph Fiennes. Year: 1993. Rating: M. Running Time: 195 Minutes. Format: DVD & BLU-RAY. Stars: ***** Verdict: Director Steven Spielberg's powerful, shattering and unforgiving film of Oskar Schindler, a member of the Nazi party, a womanizer and a war profiteer who saved the lives of more than 1,000 Jews in WWII Poland from the Holocaust. This is the quintessential triumph of how one man can make a difference. A truly extraordinary cinematic achievement that Hollywood had never attempted before, or since, and a moving, haunting, poignant and unforgettable experience! Winner of seven Oscars including Best Picture, Best Screenplay for Steve Zaillian and Best Director for Steven Spielberg. Based on the best-selling book Thomas Keneally, Schindler's List went way beyond any other movie with the creation of The USC Shoah Foundation in bringing awareness of genocide to generations from World War II to the present day, to stop it from happening ever again. This is not only Steven Spielberg's greatest triumph as a filmmaker and subsequent legacy, but one of the great masterpiece's of cinema. FILM: TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE: Genre: Drama. Cast: Clint Eastwood, John Goodman, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake. Year: 2012. Rating: PG. Running Time: 105 Minutes. Format: DVD and BLU-RAY. Stars: ***1/2 Verdict: Screen legend Clint Eastwood is back on the screen after an absence of four years in this engaging and entertaining drama of an aging, grumpy and ailing baseball scout in his twilight years takes his estranged daughter along with him for one last recruiting trip, trying for reconciliation. Nicely paced and filled with humour, drama and pathos, Clint Eastwood [at 83] is perfectly cast, almost type cast, in the title role, supported superbly by a stellar supporting cast. And you don't have to like Baseball to enjoy it. FILM: AIRPORT: Genre: Drama. Cast: Dean Martin, Burt Lancaster, Helen Hayes, Jacqueline Bisset. Year: 1970. Rating: PG. Running Time: 137 Minutes. Format: DVD. Stars: ***1/2 Verdict: Hugely entertaining old fashioned all-star-cast epic drama of a bomber on board an airplane, an airport closed by snow, a plane stuck on the runway and various personal problems of the people involved. A Grand Hotel set at an airport, this is the first in a long list of disaster movies that followed throughout the 70's, and has been continuously parodied ever since to a point of being cliche, most notably with Flying High and Flying High II, and even though the characters are wooden and the dialogue corny, it's a great cast and genuinely great fun all the way. FILM: Genre: Cast: Guinness,
MURDER BY DEATH: Comedy/Mystery. Peter Falk, Peter Sellers, David Niven, Maggie Smith, Alec
Truman Capote, James Coco. Year: 1976. Rating: PG. Running Time: 94 Minutes. Format: DVD. Stars: ***1/2 Verdict: Delightful parody of five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks who are invited to a creepy mansion to solve a strange mystery, all the great classic super-sleuth's are beautifully sent-up here: Sam Spade, Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Charlie Chan, Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man series. The fabulous cast are all in top form working from a wonderfully witty script by Neil Simon, but it is the late, great Peter Falk the dominates all the mysterious proceedings with a scene stealing performance. A great fun filled laugh riot that will more than tickle your funny bone from beginning to end! Trivia: The screams of a woman used as a doorbell at the mansion is Fay Wray's screams from the 1933 classic King Kong.

Hubby, wife take honours ■ The Long Forest husband and wife training combination of Andy and Kate Gath took the honours for the night at Swan Hill on Tuesday with a stable double - quality Real Desire/Robelle 4-Y-0 gelding Regal Knight taking the feature event on the program the Mixx FM Pace for C4 & C5 class over 2240 metres and promising 3-Y-0 It Is I/Shot Of Sugar colt Quadentate the Laser Electrical Pace for C2 & C3 class over 1609 metres, both driven by Kate. Regal Knight coming off an eye catching narrow defeat at Yarra Valley on March 25, possied one/one from gate five trailing Well Oiled Lombo, before being sent forward to park outside the poleline leader Itsnewstome. Despite over racing at times, Regal Knight proved too strong at the finish for Itsnewstome (2.4 metres) in a sensational last half mile of 55.5, with Torque Artraction (three back the markers) third. The mile rate 1-59.5. Quadentate led throughout from the pole to easily account for Village Spirit (one/two) and Caulonia Babe (one/one - three wide home turn) in a brilliant track record rate of 1-54.8 (last half 56.4).
Profitbale day for pair
■ The Melton based training partnership of Sue Hunter and Michael Doltoff enjoyed a profitable day on Wednesday, taking out the Golden Country Motel & Villas 3-Y-0 Pace at Maryborough with Clevedon Betty and the Next Trials 16th April 3-Y-0 Pace at Geelong with Doomed, both driven by Gavin Lang. Clevedon Betty (Art Major/Winmara Lass) was outstanding in her victory after racing fierce from outside the front row and shadowing the leader McRita, before leading for the final circuit in accounting for Magic Moment Lombo (three wide last lap) and Brite Spark Lombo (one/one last lap) in a rate of 2-00.9. Live Or Die/Rapparee gelding Doomed has taken time to hit his straps, breaking his maiden status at start number six by leading throughout from gate two to defeat the heavily supported Goodtime Mike which raced outside him in a rate of 1-58.7, with Reign Of Pain a nose away third after following the runner up all of the way.
Named after footballers ■ Terang based trainer Marg Lee and teenage reinsman son Jason combined to land the TAB Daily Double at the Geelong Harness Racing Club fixture on Wednesday with home bred stablemates Jilliby Ling and Jilliby Ablett, both horses taking a concession. Jilliby Ling, a 5-Y-0 gelded son of P Forty Seven and Jilliby Rose, enjoyed a sweet passage from the pole in the Phillip Nott Pace for C2 & C3 class over 1609 metres, trailing the speedy 11-yearold Incoming Flight who flew out from gate four to lead comfortably as the mobile barrier pulled away. Using the sprint lane on turning, Jilliby Ling scored by 1.2 metres over Our Horizon (one/one) in a rate of 1-59.2, with Miss Precious Mach running home strongly from near last out wide on straightening to finish third a neck in arrears of the runner up. Six year old Artiscape/Diplomatic Lover chalked up his sixth victory in 19 outings when successful in the SEW-Eurodrive Pace for C4 & C5 class over 2100 metres. Retaining the front running from the pole, Jilliby Ablett although kept honest through the middle stages by Lance Justice's Hoagy Bromac going for a hat trick of wins, defied all challengers to gain the day in a rate of 1-59.7 from Machin Out which trailed using the sprint lane to go down by 1.4 metres, with Atomic Horizon (one/one) third. With the Craven family being keen supporters of the Geelong AFL football team, both horses are named after former star players Cameron Ling and Gary Ablett.
Horses To Follow ■ Duardo, Lively Princess, Mister Orion, Sunset Truscott, Guggenheim, In Sin City, Kyvalley Rap, Itscottobegood,
PUNISHING FINISH AT SWAN HILL ■ Strathfieldsaye brothers Glenn and Daryl Douglas usually provide a winner or two at most Swan Hill (Nyah) meetings and were victors in the opening race of the evening there on Tuesday April 2 the Swan Hill Holden Pace (1st Heat) for C0 class over 2240 metres with 4-Y-0 Aces N Sevens/Smooth Laura mare Acesneights which broke her maiden status at start number 22. Restrained from outside the front line to settle at the tail of the field with One Wise Man leading from gate five for Michael Bellman, ‘Dasher’ Douglas weaved inside runners in the last lap to be three back in the running line for the last lap before easing three wide approaching the home turn. In a punishing finish, Acesneights did best to blouse the leader by a head in 1-59.5, with Fictional Hero off a three wide trail from four back in the moving line at the bell third.
No stranger ■ Astute Rochester trainer Mark Thompson is no stranger to Nyah meetings and snared the Lindsay Stewart 2-Y-0 Pace over 1609 metres with Presidential Ball/ Secret Bonus gelding Presidentialsecret. Placed in all three runs prior, Presidentialsecret driven by Ellen Tormey led throughout from gate three to score easily in advance of Znana which raced in the open and Billy Mack which trailed the winner. The mile rate 1-58.
Raced clear ■ Sometimes unruly Northern Luck/Soap Box filly Mary Mon was on her best behaviour to land the Hayward Memorial Pace for C1 & C2 class (mares) over 2240 metres at Swan Hill in a rate of 2-01.3. Trained at Moama by Shane Gilligan and driven by son Thomas, Mary Mon was taken back off the gate from outside the front row to settle at the rear, with Malcolm O'Bree's Cinder Path leading from gate four. When Miss Ruthless got the better of the pacemaker on straightening and raced clear, Mary Mon produced a barnstorming finish out wide to register a 4 metre runaway victory over her, with Safely Loaded third after trailing the leader from the pole.
Hard finish ■ At Charlton on Monday, Kialla's Pam Wil-
Landed it - on protest
with Len Baker
son snared the House To Home Decorating Pace for C0 class over 2100 metres with 6-Y-0 Our Sir Vancelot/Triple Fold mare In Triplicate who was making her race debut. Driven by Bec Bartley, In Triplicate received a sweet trip one/one from gate four after momentarily settling outside the highly fancied poleline leader Saabrina Miss. Switching down to the back of the leader on the home turn, In Triplicate finshed hard along the sprint lane to blouse the hot favourite Guggenheim which raced in the open by a nose in a tricky finish, with Saabrina Miss 8.6 metres away in third place. The mile rate 2-00.
Gold Cup ■ Elmore's Keith Cotchin was also a winner at Charlton when prolific winning 5-Y-0 Christian Cullen/Classic Blue Jeans gelding Cullen Bromac registered his 19th victory by taking out the Charlton 150th Anniversary Gold Cup for C5 or better class over 2100 metres. With Bendigo based Scott Dyer aboard, Cullen Bromac settled near last in the running line after starting from inside the second row. Moving forward three wide uncovered racing for the bell, Cullen Bromac sustained a long run to gain the day over Centonic from the tail of the field (five wide home turn) and The Midnight Reign which led in a rate of 157.5.
Honest run ■ Elmore trainer Neville Welsh was successful with honest 4-Y-0 Sundon/Wheels To Go gelding Wildenstein in the VSTA Trotters Cup (2nd Heat) for T0 or better class over 2690 metres at Maryborough on Wednesday. Driven a dashing race
by son Clinton, Wildenstein bred and raced by staunch stable client Graham Mulhall began speedily from the 10 metre mark, with Welsh having no hesitation in immediately sending him forward to take over the front running after the leading pair Happy Hombre and Sunset Tour galloped on the first turn. Always travelling kindly, Wildenstein raced away on straightening to win by a 5.3 margin in advance of Abbotshall (three back the markers one/one home turn) and a death-seating Kyvalley Rain in a rate of 2-08.3.
Fifth win ■ Bullengarook trainer/ driver Graham Lee's 5Y-0 Wind Cries Maori/ Rich Victory gelding Illcryifhewinds chalked up his fifth victory when successful in the Book Now For Private Functions Trotters Handicap for T1 or better class over 2570 metres at Geelong on Wednesday. Making his third race appearance since October, Illcryifhewinds settled a long way back in the field after starting from the 20 metre mark, with Donkiri going forward from the same handicap to assume control. Set alight three wide racing for the bell, Illcryifhewinds led for the final circuit in defeating Kadabra Dynasty (one/one at bell) after leading up the outside division prior, with Sunset Truscott (one/three at bell - three wide home turn) close up in third place. The mile rate 2-08.5.
This Week ■ Wednesday Cobram/Ballarat, ■ Thursday - Kilmore/ Mildura, ■ Friday - Melton, ■ Saturday - Mildura (Cup), ■ Sunday - Elmore @ Melton, ■ Monday - Yarra Valley, ■ Tuesday - Terang.
■ Smart Mount Gambier owned 4-Y-0 Elsu/Tiz Herself gelding Eljulio landed the Vinmar Homes Vicbred Pace for C1 class over 2100 metres at Geelong ON PROTEST. Trained at Bannockburn in the Geelong district by Geoff Webster, Eljulio taking a concession for Bendigo based Haydon Gray was given a nice trip three back in the moving line from gate two on the second row, with the pacemaker Sporty Mac (gate two) being shadowed by the odds-on favourite Goodtime Slater (gate six) for most of the race. When Goodtime Slater raced clear on straightening, Eljulio emerged to issue a challenge and was checked when the favourite shifted out abruptly, going down by a nose in a rate of 1-59.6. Returning to the all clear area, an objection was immediately issued by reinsman Gray and after a relative short hearing the placings were reversed. Lively Princess was the run of the race to finish third after galloping away from gate three and settling last along the markers.
Late split halfway ■ The most delighted person on course at the Bacchus Marsh HRC fixture held at Tabcorp Park Melton on Thursday without doubt was Parwan breeder/part-owner/trainer Bill Earl following the running of the Prydes Easifeed Trotters Mobile for TR0 class over 1720 metres - the reason being that his 5-Y-0 Wagon Apollo/Page Miss Glory mare Bev Denison had just registered her first victory in 16 outings. Driven by Melton's Rod Petroff, Bev Denison had trouble holding her position from the pole, settling three back along the markers with Mosquito Earl leading from gate six. Gaining a late split halfway up the running, Bev Denison ran to the wire strongly to score from Smileifyouluvme off a three wide trail last lap, with Nulnvoid third after racing in the open. The mile rate 2-03.2.
Shuffled back to last ■ Five year old Elsu/Amanda Woodward gelding Mister Elwood was a brilliant winner of the Tazwaste Trotters Mobile for TR0 & TR1 class over 2240 metres at Melton for Sue Hunter. Taking a concession for Zac Phillips, Mister Elwood from inside the second line spent most of the race buried three back, then four back along the markers, with Yeringberg taking over after racing wide in the early stages. Shuffled back to last approaching the home turn, Mister Ellwood's chances looked remote as both Son Of Pace and Mallee Trapper raced clear. Taken to the extreme outside on straightening, Mister Elwood produced an electrifying finish to gain a last stride half neck victory over Monica My Dear and Sonofpaco in a rate of 2-04.2. Mallee Trapper would possibly have been placed only for going off stride in the shadows of the post.
Brilliant start at Shepp ■ At Shepparton on Thursday, veteran Stanhope trainer Malcolm Shaw's honest 7-Y-0 Dream Vacation/Maori Princess gelding Maori Vacation landed the Tatura Lions Club Trotters Handicap for T1 or better class over 2190 metres. Beginning brilliantly from the 20 metre mark for Chris Alford, Maori Vacation was racing at the head of affairs after leaving the straight on the first occasion and allowed to bowl at his leisure, defied all challengers on straightening to score from the favourite Sultry Lady (one/one - three wide home turn) and Kyvalley Rap (three wide last lap - four wide home turn) in a rate of 2-03.9. It was Maori Vacation's 12th victory in 70 race appearances. - Len Baker

NEW ZEALAND STAR DOMINATES ■ Top Enzedder, It's A Dundeel, showed them what racing is all about with a brilliant win, in the Rosehill Guineas blitzing a good field of three year-olds catapulting him into an odds-on favorite for the AJC Derby this Saturday. The son of top sire High Chaparral from Stareel, (A Zabeel mare), he has always shown plenty of ability, but when he raced down in Melbourne, he appeared to be on the wrong leg with a shocker when sent out favourite in the Victoria Derby. One of his main opponents in the AJC Derby, will be the winner of the Victoria Derby, Fiveandahalfstar, who was a late scratching from the Guineas, but is on track for the Derby. His trainer Anthony Cummings is quite confident that he is spot on for the Classic come Saturday, and after a shocking ride by Peter Robl, when second in the Ranvet he will be hard to beat. It's A Dundeel rider, James McDonald, a former New Zealand rider, said earlier before winning the Guineas that he was a bit concerned that he may not get the 2400 trip of the Derby. W i t h Fiveandahalf star in now it looks likely he will be the earlier leader and with an expected good pace on, this will help the oddson favorite to settle better and get the trip. Of the others the Peter Gelagotis trained, Hvasstan, prepared at Moe, was very disappointing, well beaten at the turn and he knocked up to ran second last. An interesting runner in the AJC Derby is the New Zealand Derby winner the top filly, Habibi, (meaning, Darling or Baby in South African). She is very smart and early favourite from the Australian Oaks on Saturday, April 20. Behind Habibi in Derby betting is the Mick Kent trained Philippi on $16 , with the New Zealander, Sacred Falls who showed improvement at his last start when second to It's A Dundeel in the Guineas. Sacred Falls after

winning its first six starts in New Zealand was un-placed at two runs in Sydney, but showed us that is a colt above the ordinary. In the Australian Oaks, as mentioned earlier, Habibi heads the charts on $4.40, but not far away is the Victoria Oaks winner, Dear Demi, on $4.80. Dear Demi was very disappointing in the Coolmore Classic when she finished well back in the three year old fillies and mares classic. However, she is top class and rarely runs a bad race, it would pay to forget that run and the distance of 2400 metres will be more to her liking against the 1500 metres of the classic. On the next line is the Bart Cummings trained filly Norzita, possessed with a lot of ability she went down narrowly to Appearance in the Coolmore, and she too will appreciate the longer trip of 2400 metres. The Victorian filly, Scarlatini is very
smart, but the distance may be a worry, while chances have got to be given to the Nigel Blakiston trained filly, Your So Good, Summer Bliss, a good third in the Victoria Oaks in November and the Gai Waterhouse trained, Drifontein. One to watch at the big odds of $21 is the New Zealand filly, More Than Scared.
Pierro rules ■ Champion three year-old, Pierro, (named after a Margaret River white wine), is the short priced favorite in the Doncaster over the 1600 metres on April 20. At the time of going to press it wasn't too sure if champion mare and stablemate of Pierro, in More Joyous, would run in the Doncaster, but she is still in the markets being quoted at $15. Her trainer Gai Waterhouse said a couple of weeks ago
after Pierro beat her over 1300 metres that she couldn't beat him in the Doncaster, but as mentioned, no movement in the camp as to yes or no. The very good Queensland sprinter, Solzhenitsyn, under the care of astute trainer, Robert Heathcote, is on the second line of betting at $10, with Shoot Out who is great form next at $ 13. Shoot Out was a most impressive winner of the Chipping Norton Stakes on March 9 at Warwick Farm when he beat a class field of gallopers over 1800 metres. Well back early and in trouble, the son of High Chaparral, picked himself up to

Hope Is The Saddest ■ A play inspired by a “shared fascination with Dolly Parton” has to be somewhat different and promises to be something special. Hope Is The Saddest delivers. During the hour long piece we enter the lives of three people (who one could only describe as misfits) as they are brought together by a hit-and-run accident. This event will have ramifications for all three that none could ever have expected. Jeffrey Jay Fowler (who also wrote and directed the piece) plays Theo who, while riding his bike, is hit by a car driven by Marion (played by Natalie Holmwood). He is rescued by Hope (Michelle Robin Anderson). All three are credited as co-creators as well. The fourth essential person is Zoe Watkins, Stage Manager, Lighting and Sound Operator. This piece is billed as a comedy, but as with all good comedy there is pathos, and in this story, tragedy. Jeffrey’s program notes say “We were exploring the magic of hope but also its potential to lead to devastation”. Even if one knows this prior to seeing the show, one still has hope that there will be a happy ending for the three characters, partly because we all like a “happy ending” but predominantly because they are so well portrayed that we become attached to them and hope that their sad lives improve, just as Hope, Theo and Marion do. The performances of each of the three actors is strong, but Natalie Holmwood’s quirky, very damaged little lady is a favourite for me. This play has won awards, and rightly so. It is a piece that one remembers afterwards, and not just for the Dolly Parton music and homilies featured throughout. Well worth seeing.

MESSAGE FOR ANDREW DEMETRIOU
■ This is a message for Andrew Demetriou. We have a problem with press coverage in Sydney. This season it is obvious The Daily Telegraph has reduced its space for AFL. Our game is receiving only two fullpages on Fridays and Saturdays, and is being swamped by racing and Rugby League. We now have the reigning premiers, Sydney Swans and GWS Giants guaranteeing an AFL match every week. On Saturday the Swans v Gold Coast Suns drew 20,372 at the SCG with the new stands re-building program reducing capacity by approximately 20,000. It could be an even bigger problem if the Swans were not winning. Last weekend was racing’s big event with the running of the Golden Slipper, the richest two-year-old race in the world so horse racing. But racing is huge every weekend in Sydney’s dominant newspaper. We need a six- to eight-page Lift-out. On Friday The Daily Telegraph devoted 76 pages to sport with two racing lift-outs including one form guide for a total of 35½ pages and NRL 26½ pages including one 12 page lift-out. The breakdown of the other 14 pages was Rugby Union 3½ pages, Soccer 2¼p, AFL 2¼p, Commonwealth Games/Athletics 1¾p, scoreboard results 1¼p, betting prices all sports 3. Saturday’s breakdown: total 50 pages 30p. Racing, NRL 10p, scoreboard 1½p, Cricket ½p, Rugby 2p, AFL 2¾p, Soccer 2¼, Motor Racing 1p. Thankfully we have the dedicated, 24/7 days Foxtel, Channel 504. It provides a marvellous AFL coverage for the AFL fanatic with all its programs. The only criticism I hear is about Mark Robinson. ‘Robbo’ is apparently accepted as a writer journalist but perceived as wanting to take over ‘know-all’ on the daily 360 Show. Interestingly the compere, Gerard Wheatley has developed into a well known, well liked and accepted star TV performer. Maybe now John Hartigan has retired, we need to woo Kim Williams who seems to be a tough but approachable man to negotiate a deal. Over to you, Andrew.
Consistency please ■ It amazes me we cannot get CONSISTENCY with umpires in adjudicating the major laws of our game. Each week we see different approaches to interpretations of the 50 metre penalty especially near the setting of the mark. Those technical 50m penalties cost goals. So too the ultra technical frees in front of goal. It is my view there are too many ‘gimmee’ goals being paid. Sometimes it’s for a bump in going for a mark or the latest ‘in-vogue’ call for “blocking” which needs explaining to the commentators because they are confused. Commentators are all ex-players and most of them can be classified in the champion class and a handful successful coaches. When they are confused it tells me there is something drastically wrong with the umpires rulings and coaching. It hasn’t helped there are continual changes to the rules and their interpre-
Harry Beitzel www.squidoo.com/harrybeitzel This is what I’d do about making everything simple and clear-cut. First I would reduce the rules to the four or five major rules. Secondly I would send the umpires in groups of nine into Channel 7 and Foxtel to meet and listen to what is confusing their commentators both the callers and expert comments men. The broadcasters would have to produce video evidence of their confused decisions. I’d make it clear this is NOT a ‘witch-hunt’ against the umpires. Thirdly I’d lecture all umpires about COMMUNICATION – because this is the key to Umpire/Player/Coach relationships. Tell me what is wrong with an umpire Warning, if you want explaining to a full-back you are getting close to the line in your ‘kick-ins’ after a behind is scored before whistling for a “throwup”? And also when a second opposition player is too close to the “designated mark point” again before applying the 50m penalty? Fourthly I’d have the top six umpires join the coaches and Laws Committee on a “think-tank” session on how to reduce our laws to five, a handful, of major rules. All attendees to prepare their ideas and submit them to a AFL ‘secretary’ to compile the discussion agenda. I don’t want to take ‘barracking’ out of our game or reduce it to a sanitised “hoppo-bumppo” giggle game but I do want to eliminate game changing decisions. What did we learn from Round 2? Well Melbourne is stuck in deep mud.Another thrashing after the opener 79 points debacle against Port Adelaide this time Essendon demolished ‘the Demons’ by 148 points. But the players and administrators are in accord: “stick with coach Mark Neeld”. But they face another disaster next Saturday when they meet a winless and desperate WCEs at the MCG. Richmond has won its initial two ‘close encounters’ against Carlton and St Kilda to be one of seven undefeated teams. Here is the ladder: Essendon,Port Adelaide, Sydney, Fremantle, Collingwood, Richmond, Geelong on 8 points, W.Bulldogs, Hawthorn, Adelaide and GC Suns on 4 points, North Melbourne, Carlton, St Kilda, WCEs, GWS Giants, Brisbane and Melbourne, 0 points.
It was an exciting round with thrillers and games in the balance with five minutes to play especially with Geelong and Collingwood giving 40 points start but still able to win over North Melbourne by 4 points in the battle of the twin Scott brothers and Carlton respectively. The Blues new coach lowered his colours to his apprentice Nathan Buckley by 17 points but the last three goals were kicked by the Magpies in the final three minutes. As the pre-season experts said it would be a more even season but nobody predicted the two most unsettled clubs over the summer break, Essendon 255% and Port Adelaide 202% would be sitting on top of the perch. What will Round 3 bring? The Draw is: Friday Night Freo v Essendon at PS; Sat. Nth. Melb. V Sydney in Hobart; Melbourne v WCEs at MCG; GWS Giants v St Kilda at Manuka Oval ACT (T); Geelong v Carlton at Etihad (Night); GC Suns v Brisbane (Meriton Night); Sunday Rich v W Bull at Etihad (Early); Coll v Hawks MCG; Port Adel v Adel Crows AAMI (T). There are two local derbies to put spice into this weekend: the Gold Coast v Brisbane and the Adelaide pair. Plus five big games in Fremantle and Essendon, North Melbourne and Sydney Swans, Geelong and Carlton, Richmond and W. Bulldogs and Collingwood and Hawthorn. And if we throw in the Giants v the Saints there is only one certainty, the Eagles to win their first for the season.
The 2014 draw ■ I’ve given more thought to the extended 2014 draw. I say 26 Rounds for Premiership Points plus Finals with the
Grand Final on the traditional last Saturday in September. This start to the season would see Round 1 played on the first weekend in March. It puts AFL in line with the NRL season start and with the Australian Soccer finals ending the last weekend of March. It ensures no more “free-kicks” to our major rivals the two Rugby codes and Soccer for the extra TV/radio/ crowds/sponsors dollars. The NAB Cup remains as a trial for new talent and rules. For all four rounds in March the games to be scheduled as late afternoon and night, double header fixtures because of the lack of suitable Grounds availability and the heat and humidity conditions. The mid-season club breaks to continue. If the NAB Cup pre-season is to continue then it be restricted to the last three weekends of February and all matches to be night games reduced time quarters to 15 minutes. All teams would have been in preseason training programs from October/November so these are top-up games. The draw to ensure all local derbies are played twice and traditional Melbourne/Geelong rivalry clubs also meet twice. The interchange rotation/numbers remain at the coaches and doctors discretion in the months of February and March.
Battle of Bridge ■ I’m a little confused and concerned about the niggling between the Swans and GWS and in particular coaches John Longmire and Kevin Sheedy over the ‘coined’ slogan ‘The Battle of the Bridge’. Why should I be? After all our game is built around fanatical supporters who ‘love’ their team and ‘hate’ the opposition especially in the four ‘local derby states’ where newcomers, GWS Giants and GC Suns supporters are still learning the importance of being branded and accepted as ‘red hot blooded’ one-eyed fanatics. If and surely when we build the rivalry to challenge the inherited Eagles and Dockers in WA, and the Crows and Port Adelaide in SA derbies, our crowds will increase and the derby matches will be the much anticipated ‘Game of the Season’. Remember the hate in WA and SA has simmered for over 100 years in their state club leagues. Is ‘hate’ too strong a word? No way! Especially on Derby Day. Agreed many locals have the ‘other mob’ as their second team when we play away but Derby Day is different and special and we fire up for the fight. Melbourne doesn’t have ‘derbies’ but it has the equivalent and more so in the traditional tribal suburbs such as last weekend’s blockbuster Collingwood v Carlton. It would not matter whether they are ladder leaders and or bottom, the MCG is filled. Before I leave the ‘The Battle of the Bridge’ slogan and campaign, which fell flat, John Longmire believes this promo came from GWS. Not so! Sheeds specifically wanted “Bridges” with the world icon “Sydney Harbour Bridge” symbolising Sydney Swans as the senior established club and the recently built ‘ANZAC Bridge’, which is also in Sydney proper, symbolising the

gateway to the West and the ‘new’ GWS Giants team. He dismissed East v West because he believed it could be construed as ‘class’ and financially divisive. He and I both believe this promotional campaign came out of Melbourne, like so many football decisions, from people who don’t know the Sydney market, lifestyle and thinking. I know the Sydney Swans story and venture into the Harbour City better than most. In the late 1970s and virtually ever since I commuted to Melbourne for my media commitments. The Swans under enormous difficulties and lack of support worked as true ‘Aussie pioneers’ to gain a foothold in this new territory. Nothing GWS do to succeed in its endeavours, with the genuine and necessary financial support of the AFL, will ever diminish in my mind the massive work and debt owed to the Swans FC. It established the AFL brand in Sydney and NSW against all odds, starting officially in 1982 and along the journey featured in the Finals, four Grand Finals, R/up 1996/2006 and two Premierships 2005/12. Since 1996 in the ensuing 17 years the Swans have only missed a Finals spot on three occasions, 2000/2/9! Some record to boast about. So where do I fit in the AFL NSW/ Sydney/Sydney West scheme of things? First I want to help establish a stronger AFL structure in NSW. Secondly my role through these columns is to reach as many as possible AFL supporters in NSW with the emphasis on welcoming the new fans to AFL especially the young parents of the new Auskickers. As these newcomers receive their individual copy of these columns I hope they feel in a small way I’m welcoming them to our AFL family. We want to see our newcomers grow enriched by their involvement and interest in our game. Thirdly I’m not a vocal supporter. I want the Swans to win. But this also applies to Sheeds and GWS. So what do I do when the derbies are played? Like an old umpire I stay mute. I focus on the umps and try to placate both sides because I know they believe they were robbed! - Harry Beitzel
