EDRINGTON Ward hopefuls at a ‘meet the candidates’ event in Berwick last week promised to vote on merit and not by faction if elected to Casey Council. Of the candidates for the ward at the heart of Berwick, only 12 of the 18 made appearances, but a paltry audience turnout saw speakers outnumber those listening. In response to the audience’s concern about negative publicity around the election, all candidates promised to keep partisan politics out of council. Those with prior party allegiances denied this would interfere with their voting pattern. Divergent notions of the role of the councillor also emerged with several candidates refus-

ing to ‘promise the world’. One audience member questioned the purpose of electing to office councillors with no vision. Of the issues broached, Casey’s planning future was of particular concern, with roads, local businesses and community services the main points of contention. Others maintained that proper management of Casey’s budget was to take priority over other issues. Audience members also asked about the candidates’ specific commitment to Edrington Ward. Many candidates spoke of Berwick’s charm and the need to preserve its heritage while heralding the new. Candidates displayed varying degrees of commitment to the role, but all said they would commit to a full term.

Carmen Powell: ‘‘Our young generation are taking their lives and only 20 per cent of our budget is for community services.’’ Walter Steckis: ‘‘I’m here to represent you as an independent. I am here to serve you.’’ Mick Morland: ‘‘This council has to be financially accountable.’’ John Hastie: ‘‘I’m neither an environmentalist nor a chainsaw massacarist.’’.’ Wayne A’Vard: ‘‘Council should have a much stronger imput from locals.’’ Michael Zarif: ‘‘Berwick needs to retain its unique character, while also building worldclass facilities.’’ Chris Andrews: ‘‘You people are the ones who direct me to do what you want.’’ Judy Owen: ‘‘I want Berwick to be seen as an age-friendly city.’’ Matthew Hall: ‘‘I want to see long-term development.’’ Peter Williamson: ‘‘I want to promote technology for smarter living.’’ Greg Cornelius: ‘‘We need to help the youth and homeless.’’ Neil Lucas: ‘‘I’ll be keeping politics out of council.’’

My religion (Weekly, October 9) most certainly does not preclude me from joining any political party. Each member of my church is free to make his or her own mind up about politics at all levels of government. I am not a member of the Liberal Party, or any other political party for that matter, because I don’t agree with enough of anyone’s policies to join them, and because I do not believe that politics has a place in local government. Who specifically are you aware of that is using dummies? Would you please do your readers the courtesy of checking and reporting facts, and not just repeating any rubbish that spews forth from the mouths of the disgruntled.

him about the Springfield Ward? It is stacked with dummy candidates. I was preferenced 11th by nine candidates. Unless the Victorian Electoral Commission does something about it, in four years’ time they’re going to have 150 candidates standing. Rex Flannery, Narre Warren South, candidate for Springfield Ward

Good journalism Congratulations on your story ‘Poll a farce’. It is great to see that an investigative journalist is prepared to look into the strange goings-on over the two-page political advertisement that appeared on pages 2 and 3 of the Berwick News. I represented the Endeavour Hills area from 1982-03 and contested eight elections. I’ve seen group efforts to win seats in a ward but I have never come across an attempt such as this to take total control of a council. This to me is an unsavoury action and contrary to good democratic principles. Let us hope that it fails. John Hastie, Berwick, candidate for Edrington Ward

Re: Stacked with dummies Why would the Weekly ask Cr Sam Aziz about Four Oaks Ward dummy candidates? Why not ask

The more, the merrier I think it’s great, more competition. Councillors will be more connected with community for fear of losing their jobs if they do not perform better. Our previous councillors are getting paranoid without any reason, unless they have something to hide or just jealous. This is a real democracy. Jatinder (Bobby) Singh, Hampton Park, candidate for River Gum Ward

I’m an independent My son designed my pamphlet and I wrote the words. I paid myself for the printing and distribution of the pamphlet. In terms of the combined ad, I paid my share. There are a bunch of people — I’ve met with them but I’m standing as an independent. Rob Ward, Cranbourne Candidate for Mayfield Ward

ONE of Berwick’s tireless community servants has been rewarded, winning Senior Achiever at the Victorian Seniors Awards last week. Val Lycett, 85, has long been powered by a strong community spirit and remains actively so. Ms Lycett is a community information officer at Dandenong Community Advice Bureau. She has long helped many people in dire straits — the imprisoned, poor, homeless and domestic violence victims. She has also offered support to refugees living in her community. Ms Lycett was aware of social misfortune from an early age. At school in Hampton Park in the 1930s, she saw children who were wards of the state or ill-treated. At 32, Ms Lycett became an honorary probation officer in Doveton, supervising children going through the courts. It was a ‘‘problem area’’, full of new families working at new factories such as Heinz and General Motors. ‘‘You accepted how they were, but didn’t con-

done their behaviour,’’ she said. ‘‘You showed them that someone cared.’’ Ms Lycett remains inquisitive about people and things. She says she learnt so much by going into people’s homes, doing courses in religion, psychology and mentoring. She’s been at the community advice bureau for 32 years, serving 20 as treasurer. She is also a Do Care visitor and works with the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Minister for Ageing David Davis said Ms Lycett had demonstrated a strong sense of social justice and commitment to her community. She was one of 12 seniors recognised at the 2012 Victorian Senior Awards, established to encourage older people to be healthy and active. Ms Lycett said she felt humbled by the award. ‘‘There are so many volunteers that do more than I do. It was overwhelming.’’

GIFTS HOME & GARDEN

Jenny’s colourful working life BY CATHERINE WATSON IF she’s spent the weekend gardening, Jenny Bardelmeyer knows there will be no rest at work the following day. A sunny weekend is invariably followed by a cavalcade of trucks at the Oasis nursery in Fiveways stocking up with flower and vegetable seedlings to replenish garden centres around the state. Originally a small family business called Woodleigh, the 11-hectare Fiveways nursery is now part of Oasis Horticulture, Australia’s largest producer of flower and vegetable seedlings. It employs a core of about 80 staff throughout the year but in the spring peak, that builds up to more than 130, making it one of the biggest employers in the Cranbourne area. Ms Bardelmeyer, who started working there in 1989, said something of the family atmosphere remained, with many of the workers returning year after year. Some families, including her own, are in their second and third generation there. Her 23 years at the nursery is not unusual — many of the staff have notched up 20 or 30 years and one is nearing the 50-year mark.

S 10 WEEK TILL XMAS

Bright sparks: Jenny Bardelmeyer and Sarah Heale say colour is coming back into gardens. Picture: Rob Carew

When she started in 1989, up to 50 women sat around a table pricking tiny seedlings out of trays into punnets. These days, the same work is done by a machine that can plant 15,000 seedlings in an hour and the staff act as quality controllers. ‘‘Quality control is very important, right down to where we buy our seeds. Everything we produce is very heavily trialled before we even think about releasing it.’’ The company’s marketing co-ordinator Sarah Heale says there has been a revival of interest in gardening, driven by the end of the drought and the popularity of cooking shows.

‘‘Asian leafy greens and herbs have exploded. A lot of herbs have evolved on rocky hillsides being chewed by goats. As long as you keep trimming them they’re very easy to grow.’’ She said gardens had been very grey and green for the past few years but, with the end of the drought, people were beginning to get back into colourful annuals such as petunias and marigolds. ‘‘Gardening is so relaxing and it’s a pleasure that you can share with family and friends.

CASEY workers are not in the best of shape, a WorkSafe report has found. The report, which assessed 11,000 workers over a three-year period, found many had poor eating habits and were not exercising enough. Half of those interviewed ate less than the recommended daily intake of fruit and a staggering nine in 10 were not eating enough vegetables. It also found that workers in Casey were drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and one in four smoked. WorkSafe spokesman Tim McLean said although the results were similar to the state average they were still concerning. ‘‘We’re seeing a combination of lack of physical activity and poor diet, and alcohol and cigarettes are being consumed at a risky level.’’ Of particular concern was the waistline measurement of Casey workers, which was above the state average. Large waistlines were considered a strong risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes.

‘Healthy workers generally have less absenteeism, higher productivity and show better morale.’ — Tim McLean Mr McLean said suburban areas like Casey suffered from a lack of commuting options and access to fresh, healthy food, but employers could tackle the problem in the workplace. ‘‘There are plenty of things that workplaces can do, such as having access to fruit and veg, supporting quitting smoking and organising sport and exercise. ‘‘They can create the opportunity for people to work closer to home, and also boost incidental activity during the day.’’ Businesses could also sign up with WorkSafe for a free health assessment of their employees. Mr McLean said that investing in healthy workers was a sound business decision. ‘‘Healthy workers generally have less absenteeism, higher productivity and show better morale.’’

FEATURE STORY

It’s not just voters at fault L

et’s try a quick quiz: Who’s the Prime Minister of Australia? Can you name the Premier of Victoria? What about the mayor of your local council? Or the councillor for the very ward in which you live? If you answered each of those, well done. But if not, why not? Figures from the Victorian Electoral Commission imply voters are far less engaged with local councils than other levels of government. In the 2004 council elections, almost 76.5 per cent voted in postal elections, while just 70 per cent turned out at the handful of attendance elections. For those who did vote, only 45 per cent followed candidates’ how-to-vote instructions, and 9.9 per cent of votes were counted as informal. By contrast, about 92 per cent of people took part in the 2010 state election, with an informal voting rate of 4.96 per cent. And outside of election time, councils go about their business seemingly unscrutinised, with public galleries at monthly open meetings empty save for the local media and diehards. Why are people so uninterested in their local council — and willing to cop a $56 fine for not voting — when the decisions it makes are so much closer to home than those of Spring Street or Canberra? “I think it’s that local government is misunderstood,” says Rob Spence, chief executive officer of the Municipal Association of Victoria. “I know there’s a view that councils are a waste of time, but stand out on your front lawn and look out — everything comes from council. The roads, the footpaths, the parks, and you can have a say in shaping that. It’s so significant the role they play and it should be appreciated.” At its simplest, councils’ main responsibilities can be broken down to the three Rs: roads, rubbish and — the touchiest subject of all — rates. But their duties go much further. They, more than any other level of politics, decide what sort of development happens in your neighbourhood and what direction your suburb’s future will take. Associate professor Ken Coghill, director of Monash University’s governance research unit, says the importance of local government to dayto-day life cannot be underestimated. “They’re in charge of everything, from safe and secure roads right through to the really important decisions about the future of the community, so it’s really important councillors know they’ve got the full support or authority of the public,” Professor Coghill says. “The lack of interest weakens democracy. If a council does something you don’t like, then you’ve only got yourself to blame. “If 20 or 30 per cent of voters don’t vote, then that’s 20 or 30 per cent who don’t have their views represented.” But he is is quick to say the responsibility is not just on residents. He speaks of the “unusual” case of one retiring councillor who famously disliked being disturbed by the public. “It’s important to have as councillors people who can take the lead in every sense and not just at the council table.” Meanwhile, he says, any [ 10 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

In the 2008 council elections, only about 75 per cent of Casey’s enrolled voters cast their ballots. With voter turnout rates much higher for state and federal elections — and this month’s council elections looming — NATALIE KOTSIOS asks: why don’t we care about local government? inclination to closed council meetings or not making decisions transparent weakens its authority and further discourages local engagement. “If people know what’s going on, they are much more likely to take an active interest.” Mr Spence says most decisions have to be made in open meetings. Less regulated is the increasing party politics in council elections. Once the domain of the state and federal arenas, it’s now not uncommon to have council candidates who are also members of political parties, or parties beefing up the ballot with dummy candid-

ates. While many letter writers and candidates have aired their grievances on the issue to this newspaper, Professor Coghill believes there is no problem with having party politics in the council sphere. “I’m aware the Liberal and Labor parties are backing people, and I believe the Liberal Party is doing so much more than previously,” he says. “It’s a useful guide to voters – if they are open about it.” Mr Spence agrees, providing candidates disclose where they stand. “The challenge in local government is you have nine people with different agendas who need to try and reach common

ground. I’m not advocating the party structure, but it does challenge how we operate. To really politicise the structure would be a bad thing, though.” Professor Coghill says dummy candidates are “an inevitable outcome” of the preferential voting system. “It’s worrying, but then if one person is vocal and another is running dead, I think voters are smart enough to see through that tactic. The really important thing is that people who are genuinely interested have to make the effort to attract voters.” In the end, we get the democracy we deserve because we all — residents, voters, councillors, candidates — are responsible for creating it. As Mr Spence says: “We are envied around the world because we have the right to vote and an obligation to vote. In my view, you should use that right and people should take it seriously.”

Dummiesornot? The issue of dummy candidates has caused much angst in this Casey election. We asked all sitting councillor candidates: 1. Have you used dummy candidates in this election? If so, how many? 2. Is it possible to be elected without using dummy candidates? 3. Is it time to change the system from preferential voting to first past the post or some other system? Did not respond Councillors Geoff Ablett, Sam Aziz, Bob Halsall, Bev Hastie, Wayne Smith.

Shar Balmes, Four Oaks Ward 1. No. I wouldn’t risk having a ‘dummy’ get accidentally elected, thereby wasting four years of our time and ratepayers’ resources. 2. It is very possible to get elected without dummies. I was elected four years ago and am proof of that. 3. The preferential system is ridiculous and needs to be changed to give the voters exactly who they are voting for.

Amanda Stapledon, Mayfield Ward 1. No response. 2. No response. 3. It is my view that it is time to change — first past the post is the fairest system and ensures that residents who vote 1 for their preferred candidate can be sure that their vote is counted effectively.

Judy Owen, Edrington Ward 1. I have not used any dummy candidates in this election. 2. While I came to council on a countback, I was not supported by any dummy candidates in 2008. 3. I think a review is well overdue, you are not necessarily obtaining good representation on council with the current system, just a hand-picked array of ‘mates’.

Lynette Keleher, River Gum Ward 1. Absolutely not. 2. I didn’t use any dummy candidates last time and still got elected. 3. I think so. At the moment it is apparent that the elections have been very well orchestrated with the recruitment of dummy candidates obvious across all wards.

Kevin Bradford, Mayfield Ward 1. I have not used or sought to use any ‘dummy’ candidates. 2. It is remotely feasible to be elected but highly unlikely. 3. Having seen the contempt shown to the electorate by some during this election by the obvious use of ‘dummy’ or ‘running’ mates, now is the time for at least a review of the current system.

Women urged to enter engineering A BERWICK resident recognised for her work in civil engineering says more women need to enter the construction industry. Jenny Ryan, who received the outstanding achievement award at a dinner hosted by the National Association of Women in Construction, said women should be encouraged to pursue their interests in the field. ‘‘These awards are important to demonstrate to younger women and girls that the industry is an exciting profession where they can make a real and tangible difference.’’ Ms Ryan said although she had personally never felt discouraged in her time as civil engineer, the industry still suffered from a gender imbalance. ‘‘Women are still a fairly small number in a very male-dominated industry. This is a great way of recognising their achievements and increasing the awareness of women in construction.’’ Ms Ryan was singled out for her work on a

Ms Ryan said it was an honour to receive the award with her two teenage daughters looking on and hoped it would inspire them. She said it had also reinforced the importance of working with other women in the industry. ‘‘It’s reminded me of the importance of actively engaging with other interested women from our industry, and in particular, engineering students.’’ The National Association of Women in Construction was established in 1995 to raise the profile of women in the industry and provide networking opportunities. Association data shows that females make up less than 10 per cent of the construction workforce.

The charges relate to a council meeting on April 3 this year when police wrestled Mr Richardson to the floor and marched him from the council chamber in handcuffs. Mr Richardson, who has been banned from submitting any questions at public question time during council meetings, said he would plead not guilty.

The state’s best jockeys and trainers descended on Cranbourne on Sunday to do battle for the Cranbourne Cup, in the lead-up to this weekend’s Caulfield Cup. The action was just as intense off the track with 54 women vying for $5000 in prizes in Fashions on the Field. Brigette Cox, pictured, won the Myer Lady of the Day event by a head, with Aimee Larocca and Lauren Ellery making up the trifecta. Fifteen men took part in the men’s stakes. For all the cup action, see Brad McGrath’s report on page 30.

OBITUARY: Thelma Rose Black March 16, 1923-August 9, 2012

THELMA Rose Black enjoyed a distinguished teaching career of 40 years, retiring in 1983. She will be remembered as a staff member of one of Greater Dandenong’s oldest primary schools — state school 1403 — in Foster Street East, Dandenong. Ms Black was born in Berwick, the daughter of Wallace Moncrief and Rose Black (nee Edwards). She was the eldest in a family of three, sister to John Edward Black and Jessie Anne (Mrs Williams). Her parents were well known as apple orchardists and fruit packers in Pakenham Upper and the City of Casey areas, having settled here about 1909. Ms Black attended the Pakenham Upper State School and the Upwey High School. She completed her secondary schooling at the Mac.Robertson Girls High School. She dedicated her talents to shaping minds, with her main focus on early primary years. In 1942, she began student-teaching in Emerald before returning to Melbourne to complete her studies at teachers’ college. In those days, young

teachers started as the staff of single-teacher schools and this took her to rural areas before returning to Pakenham. In 1958 Ms Black combined her two greatest loves — teaching and travel — when she sailed to the UK for teaching appointments. Eight years later, she bought a home in Pakenham. In the last three years of her life, health issues prevented her living alone and she moved to the Ranelagh Gardens aged-care centre, where she died peacefully on August 9. In her retirement she helped the community in Pakenham by delivering meals on wheels and at the opportunity shop.

Neloo pencils it in BY CATHERINE WATSON eloo Kreltszheim is master of many artistic media, but of them all she sings the praises of the humble pencil. ‘‘People never thought a little pencil could do such things, but the coloured pencil is a very lovely medium,’’ she says. Sitting in her Hallam studio, the Sri Lankanborn artist reflects with great joy on a lifetime spent doing what she most loves — painting and drawing. When she was 10 and at a Sri Lankan primary school, a teacher sent one of her drawings to a competition run by England’s prestigious Royal Drawing Society. She won a prize, the first of many. But when it was time to go to university, it was architecture she studied, not art, because everyone knew you couldn’t make a living as an artist. It was only after Kreltszheim had children that she returned to the pleasures of pastels, pencils and paint. Last month she featured in a group exhibition titled Mostly Colour Pencil – the first pencil exhibition in Victoria – at AGRA Galleries in

N

Camberwell. She was also this year’s Casey guest artist at the popular Kevin Hill’s Top Ten Show held at the civic centre this month featuring some of Australia’s best-loved painters, including Jack Absalom and Kevin Best. While it’s coloured pencils that enthral her at the moment, Kreltszheim is also a great lover of pastels and water colours. ‘’You can manipulate pastels, control them. Water colour is unpredictable – you can’t predict what will come out of it because the paper is absorbent and the water runs very fast. And you can’t correct it. ‘‘But one day I sat down and said I have to get it. I locked the door and took the phone off the hook and I conquered it. You have to let the water do the job for you.’’ In the early 1990s, friends and acquaintances pestered her to teach their children how to draw and paint so she set up the Palette and Paintbrush School of Art for children and adults.

Duo reunited for tilt at Caulfield Cup CRANBOURNE-based jockey Craig Williams will reunite with Dunaden for a tilt at the $2.65 million BMW Caulfield Cup on Saturday. The 135th running of the group 1 race over 2400 metres is shaping to have one of the strongest fields in recent years. The Caulfield Cup is the world’s most prestigious 2400-metre handicap event and one of the toughest races on the Australian racing calendar, with the pressure on from the moment the barriers open. Following the third declarations on October 9, 22 horses remain in the field and the final declaration is due at 10am tomorrow. Notably the past two Melbourne Cup winners, both French trained, Americain (2010) and Dunaden (2011), have the Caulfield Cup on their agenda. Williams, who won last year’s BMW Caulfield Cup on Southern Speed, has elected to ride Dunaden. Williams won last year’s Geelong Cup on Dunaden and was to ride him in the Melbourne Cup but a suspension cost him the winning ride

Last December, Williams won the group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400 metres) at Sha Tin on Dunaden and, after riding him in work at the Werribee International Horse Centre last Tuesday, believes the Caulfield Cup is a very winnable race for him, perhaps more so than the Melbourne Cup. “He is physically a lot bigger, stronger and sharper than last year,” Williams said. “The way he is going now, my feeling is that the Caulfield Cup might be a more suitable race for him than the Melbourne Cup. He is racing a lot more keenly and the way the Caulfield Cup is usually run, it will really suit him.” Williams journeyed to England to ride Dunaden at his most recent start in the King

lot sharper. He felt like a mile-and-a-half horse, not a two-mile horse, and it was the same this morning,” he said after the Werribee ride. Without a doubt the pre-post favourite, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Irish galloper Glencadam Gold, will be hard to beat after his impressive win in the group 1 Metropolitan Handicap (2400 metres) at Randwick on October 6. Last Saturday’s impressive Herbert Power Stakes winner, Shahwardi, will be a top chance if connections decide to run. The Melbourne Racing Club has announced two bonuses, each worth $100,000, linked between the Caulfield Cup and Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day. Any horse that runs in the 2012 Caulfield Cup and then goes on to win the 2012 Deadly Design Zipping Classic on Sandown Guineas Day on November 17 will win one bonus. The Spring Racing Carnival concludes on November 17 with Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day on Sandown’s Hillside track.


MOTORING ●

The worldwide car of the moment Ewan Kennedy road tests the Toyota 86 sports coupe oyota’s little 86 sports coupe is taking the world by storm. We have recently spent time in the UK, Germany, France and Italy, and everywhere we go car lovers are talking about the return of Toyota to the sports car business. They are also bemoaning the ever-growing waiting lists for the 86. Toyota Australia won’t quote waiting times, but, anecdotally, potential owners are staring at up to six months before they have one sitting in their driveway on standby for the delights of an early Sunday morning drive on stretches of interesting roads. Toyota tells us the styling of the 86 was inspired by the 1965 Toyota 2000GT with its classic side-window shape, long bonnet and rear fender line. The shape is sporty and neat and likely to remain as timeless as those of its honourable ancestor. Two variants of the Toyota 86 are on offer Down Under: the base GT and up-specced GTS, both with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

T

Handling is exceptional, making it a true driver’s car and explaining the long waiting lists worldwide. The flat-four engine sits low and satisfyingly rearwards in the front of the car and drives the rear wheels. Steering inputs are fast and progressive and there’s plenty of positive feedback through the wheel. Toyota 86 sticks to the road with all the determination and verve of a true sports machine and like all the best in this class it seems to read the mind of the driver. The front bucket seats provide good lateral support when cornering and do so without being overly aggressive in the shape of the side bolsters. As a 2+2, the Toyota 86 has no illusions about carrying rear seat passengers. A very high compression ratio of 12.5:1 gives the naturally aspirated engine excellent performance across the entire rev range. Starting at an amazingly low $29,990 for the manual Toyota 86 GT, the price rises to $35,490 for the GTS manual. Automatic adds $2500 to both grades.

Global appeal: Sporty lines of the all-new Toyota 86 sports coupe are neat, simple and likely to remain timeless.

Double win for top team

Grinning winner: Michael Rodd shows the elation of a winning ride on Midnight Martini in the Cranbourne Cup. For more pictures of a big day of racing go to our web gallery at caseyweeklycranbourne.com.au. Pictures: Rob Carew

One Martini, straight up BY BRAD McGRATH IT was a brilliant ride from Michael Rodd and a return to form for Midnight Martini that netted the Cranbourne Cup for Mark Kavanagh. In glorious sunshine on Cranbourne Turf Club’s biggest day of the year the five-year-old mare charged home on the straight in the $200,000 feature on Sunday. Kavanagh, based at Flemington, said Midnight Martini always had ability but injury had been cruel last spring. Midnight Martini had been poised to tackle the Melbourne Cup but broke down the previous week in the Lexus Stakes. ‘‘We put the blinkers on today, which really made a difference,’’ Kavanagh said. ‘‘She really sprinted away from this field and it was a really good return to form.’’ Rodd had Midnight Martini expertly poised to strike at the top of the straight and, when asked to respond, the mare delivered. The $9 chance defeated Darren Weir’s Streets Away ($9) while Aaron Purcell’s $51 chance Streaky Fella rounded out the top three. ‘‘It’s a big thrill to win it — don’t worry about that,’’ Kavanagh said. ‘‘Look, this horse was expected to go into the cups last year and then she broke down in the Lexus.’’ Rodd paid tribute to the heart Midnight Martini had shown to defeat a class field over the 2025m [ 30 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

The $8 chance proved too strong for Peter Healey’s Galbraith ($31) with Colin Davies

Stanzout ($31) finishing third. Stanzout was a placegetter in the Apache Cat Classic previously. Devon Meadows trainer Ken Keys enjoyed a successful day with At The Tap winning the Condo’s Horse Transport Maiden Plate (1000m). He then got his second victory with First Course winning the $20,000 Highview Accounting Services 0-68 Handicap (2000m).

A FAMILIAR pairing took out the inaugural Pinker Pinker Plate at Cranbourne on Friday night. Chateau Margaux, trained by Peter Moody and ridden by Luke Nolen, won the $80,000 feature on a wet and windy opening night of the Cranbourne Cup Carnival. The 2040m race was named after last year’s Cox Plate winner Pinker Pinker, who was trained by Cranbourne’s Greg Eurell before the mare died during track work. Nolen said Chateau Margaux had shown enough to suggest she would go on to bigger and better and things this spring. “She’s been placed very well throughout her career, she’s stakes-placed and hopefully in the spring we can knock off a staying group race because I think she is of group ability,” Nolen said. “Sometimes they can be hard to win, but she’s in good form, so hopefully we can find one with her this spring.” Chateau Margaux jumped from a wide barrier, but Nolen soon found himself just off the pace behind Khandallah. The four year old, who started $2.20 favourite, hit the front at the top of the straight to win by a length from Khandallah ($12) with Innocent Lady ($5.50) nearly another length third. Tom Brideoake was the Moody Stable representative at Cranbourne and he pinpointed the group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) as a likely target for Chateau Margaux. Nolen said the performance of Chateau Margaux, which took her record to 10 races for five wins, a second and a third, was typically gritty. “I think, ridden that close to them, she seems to grind out a finish more than having a devastating turn of foot,” Nolen said. “But the alley sort of dictated where I was going to end up in the run.” Chateau Margaux’s win completed a winning double for Moody and Nolen, who won earlier in the night with Correggio in the TAB Cranbourne Cup Carnival Maiden Plate (2038m). Cranbourne trainer Michael Kent looks to have unearthed a star with $2.80 favourite High Shot easily winning the $17,500 Australian Future Communications Maiden Plate 1400m. High Shot easily defeated Rockedly and Amalie to give Kent one of two winners for the night with Seven Degrees triumphing in the $17,500 SEN Maiden Plate (1200m). ‘‘He’s a really nice horse and I don’t think he was a sprinter . . . I think he’ll be better when he gets to 1700m,’’ Kent said. ‘‘He really needed the run first up because he’s been a really hard headed horse to train, can’t do a lot with him, so he really needed the run.’’ — Brad McGrath

In their seconds clash, Casey-South Melbourne eased to a two-wicket victory over the Magpies. The Magpies compiled 6-182 from their 45 overs but Jordan Wyatt (51) and Rob Elston

Slow votes starter claims SFL prize with midfield role CLAYTON star Aaron Purvis is the first to admit he underestimated the talent in the Southern Football League. The 22 year old was recruited to the Clays from Victorian Football League club Casey Scorpions in the lead-up to the SFL season and after kicking a few goals in the opening few matches found himself underperforming against other division 1 sides. The Berwick resident and former Rowville junior was then pushed into the midfield by his coach, Ben McGee, and in his own words, Purvis never looked back. Last Friday, Purvis claimed the division 1 best and fairest award — the Kingsley Medal — beating St Paul’s Andrew Gilbert by a vote, 24 votes to 23. Purvis polled just two votes in the opening seven matches of the season before his move into the midfield and a lift in performance from the Clays led to Purvis taking home 22 votes in the final 10 rounds. He called his medal win ‘‘over-

Cougars still on a roll

Bloods crumble to Magpies DESPITE a fighting half-century to star allrounder Clive Rose, Casey-South Melbourne was a four-wicket loser to Camberwell Magpies in their Premier Cricket clash at Camberwell Sports Ground on Saturday. The Ryder Medallist top scored for the Bloods with 57 in their total of 9-187 but the clash was finished by the Magpies in the 46th over of their innings. Rose, who was unluckily run out while backing up at a crucial moment of the Bloods’ innings, said there were a number of factors in their loss to the Magpies. ‘‘It was a combination of things — we didn’t get enough runs on what was a 200-plus wicket and we do have the bowling attack to defend 190 but we just didn’t bowl well — me included,’’ he said. The Bloods consistently lost wickets throughout their innings and opener Rohan Blandford (31) and Jayde Herrick (36) were the only other batsmen to pass 30. Will Walker claimed 3-23 from 10 overs to be the pick of the Magpies’ bowlers. ‘‘We didn’t make enough runs to start with,’’ Rose said. ‘‘We had far too many dot balls to start with yesterday and didn’t rotate the strike enough.’’ With the ball, the Bloods got off to the perfect start with Victorian paceman Herrick claiming the wicket of Alex Stanley to leave the Magpies at 1-3. But despite Andrew Perrin (2-17) and Rose (2-36) trying their hearts out for the Bloods, the Magpies’ top order, bar Stanley, all made starts which were enough to seal an important victory.

and you need to be mentally and physically tougher than in some other competitions.’’ Purves paid tribute to McGee for pushing him back into the midfield, a role he played in junior football before moving into the forward line at higher levels. ‘‘Ben knew I played in midfield before going to the VFL. ‘‘He put me onto the ball and let me do what I needed to do. ‘‘We put together a formidable midfield and that was that.’’ McGee said Purvis brought a professional mindset to the club doing everything he could to best prepare for each match. Purvis thanked the Clays for allowing him a flexible training schedule as he works for Armourguard and works a lot of afterhours shifts. ‘‘It was going to be hard to get to Casey Fields for training four days a week. ‘‘So Ben allowed me that leniency with training so if I missed a Tuesday or a Thursday I could make it up, even if it meant I was sometimes training at 11pm at night.’’

BERWICK Cougars have continued their barnstorming start to the Victorian Summer League baseball season with a 13-3 victory over Chelsea at Berwick on Saturday. The Cougars inflicted the mercy rule for the second successive week after thrashing St Kilda in their previous match. Cougars coach Wayne Porter said he was thrilled with their 3-0 start to the season but was looking forward to his team being challenged in the coming weeks. ‘‘We were a bit slow out of the blocks but in around the sixth or seventh inning we started to whack on a few runs,’’ he said. ‘‘That knocked their starting pitcher off the mound — their import — and we added the last few in the eighth to finish the game. ‘‘We’re not usually a high-scoring side so it’s a bit of a ‘suck it and see’ at the moment and it’s going to be good to see how the boys respond when they are in a close one.’’ Cougars pitcher Matt Chillcott started on the mound before import Cameron Ross closed out the match. Porter said that overall the match was a good team effort with everyone pulling their weight. ‘‘It was just a game of base hits and drawing walks and moving runners around,’’ he said. ‘‘We got the hits at the right time and I think everybody got a hit.’’ — Brad McGrath Berwick clashes with Bonbeach at Bonbeach on Sunday.

LeBrocq finds formula for title UPPER Beaconsfield rising star Jack le Brocq has sealed the Australian Formula Ford Championships with a dominant display at Bathurst. The Minda Motorsport driver now has an unassailable lead going into the final round of the championships, which will be held at Winton next month. Le Brocq won all three races at th 50th anniversary of the famous Bathurst 1000 race with the championship victory the first for the Cranbourne-based Minda Motorsport team. Le Brocq’s title backs up the second position he scored in last year’s point score. ‘‘It’s an awesome feeling to win the championship, especially getting it done with a round to spare,’’ Le Brocq said. ‘‘It’s a great honour to join the list of Formula Ford champions. Most of those guys are now in the V8 Supercar pit lane, and that’s where I want to be. ‘‘To win it with a three-peat at Bathurst at such a big meeting is a pretty special feeling.’’’’ — Brad McGrath
