Tackling family teen violence

COVER: Dylan, Jessica, Leilah and Nina admire imposing Clydesdales, Murphy and Marcus. See page 11. Picture: Gary Sissons

BY ALECIA PINNER THE rising number of violent adolescents attacking their parents or siblings will be tackled in an Australian-first pilot program which could be expanded across the state. Peninsula Health’s Keeping Families Safe Frankston and Mornington Peninsula program, which just started, is based on the similar Step Up program in Seattle. Peninsula Drug and Alcohol Program manager of youth services Jo Howard was inspired to create a similar resource tailored to Australian families after visiting America to learn about Step Up. ‘‘I was really convinced of the value of that program and the need for a similar program in Australia. There has not been a specific adolescent violence program funded in Australia before,’’ she said. In 2010-11, Frankston police received more than 100 calls from families needing help with violent adolescents and Ms Howard said a similar number of call were made to police on the Mornington Peninsula. Ms Howard said the pilot, funded through $750,000 from the state government’s Department of Human Services, would target local families with 12-18 year olds who were abusive or violent at home. The program would include intensive case management, family therapy and working closely with schools and drug and youth services for the benefit of the adolescent. Additionally, there would be an eight-week group program involving parents and adolescents to rebuild family relationships and empower the young person to manage their behaviour through learnt skills. Mothers and fathers would have a chance to enhance their parenting skills, Ms Howard said. ‘‘We know adolescent violence is higher in outlying suburbs and in regional Victoria and the peak age for this kind of violence is between 15 and 17. ‘‘That is the most common age for the police to be called.’’ Adolescent violence often led to violence in

against mothers and fathers,’’ Ms Howard said. In 2006, Victoria Police responded to 2154 calls about adolescent perpetrated family violence and the number of calls had almost doubled by the previous financial year to 4017. The three-year pilot could be rolled out to the rest of the state if successful and Lily Anderson of Step Up will be in Melbourne next week for an international conference organised by Peninsula Health.

Epicurean opens but faces court action BY SAMANTHA ROBIN AFTER four years of planning and a large amount of private investment, the Epicurean Centre has opened in Red Hill. It has welcomed locals and visitors in what venue manager Leah Neesham has described as a ‘‘soft opening’’. ‘‘We are still establishing the need and gauging a response from our customers of what they are looking for,’’ she said. ‘‘We are looking to formally open the Epicurean within the next week.’’ Business partners Craig Regan and Andrew Bennalack have taken on a 20-year lease of the site. The venue has already drawn interest from many locals, keen to have a stickybeak at the converted former coolstore since its Australia Day opening. But there are still a host of planning issues yet to be resolved. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council will run a case before the Magistrates’ Court for alleged breaches to the Mornington Peninsula planning scheme during the construction of the Epicurean

Centre. The council’s manager statutory planning Angela Hughes said the shire wanted to ensure the development complied with the Planning and Environment Act. A planning permit for the building, first issued by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in August 2008, allowed the use of land for a tavern and double-storey serviced apartments and associated works including partial demolition, alterations and additions to the heritage building in Red Hill-Shoreham Road. The developer also gained retrospective approval for some of the works, including the installation of a wastewater storage dam instead of wastewater storage tanks. But on May 4 last year the council refused to approve a gas tank adjacent to the building after it had already been installed. Despite the ongoing planning saga, the Epicurean Centre was abuzz on Friday night with diners enjoying local produce. The restaurant, which can seat 130 diners, features wood fire pizzas, an Italian-inspired menu and tastings of Mornington Peninsula wines.

Freshly opened: Barman Chris Fabri pours a local drop at the Epicurean Centre in Red Hill. There is also an outdoor dining area overlooking the reserve, which boasts a ‘‘bush feel’’. A cafe out the front serves homemade bread and cakes during the day. Ms Neesham said they had been humbled by the response from the local community. ‘‘We want to be a place that everyone can come

and enjoy,’’ she said. ‘‘We want to expose the region for all of its qualities, especially the local produce.’’ The Epicurean has bolstered the local workforce, taking on 35 staff. Developer and landlord Joseph Alesci declined to comment on the alleged planning permit breaches.

FRANKSTON Hospital’s emergency department came under enormous pressure this month as ambulances lined up to offload patients. Ten ambulances were reportedly waiting outside the department last Wednesday. At 5.45pm last Friday week there were 12 ambulances, two patient transport vehicles and a single responder unit. Hospital spokesman John Jukes said the delay in getting ambulance patients admitted was ‘‘unusual’’ and due to a higher than normal number of heat-related presentations. Mr Jukes said calling a bypass to redirect ambulances to another hospital was not about patient numbers but the acuity (severity of condition) of the patients. ‘‘In the closing days of last week [February 8] acuity was high and considerable resources were required to deal with the most severe cases,’’ MrJukes said.

general secretary Steve McGhie estimated that having 15 vehicles off the road represented about 70 per cent of ambulances serving the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region. ‘‘The obvious answer is more beds in hospitals,’’ Mr McGhie said. ‘‘While ambulances are off the road they have to be pulled from somewhere else and that all takes time.

pure luck that no one has died because of this and the minute someone does, I will be out there shouting. ‘‘We have to keep up the pressure and get governments to do something. They are putting politics before patients’ lives.’’ Ambulance Victoria acting group manager Danielle North said the service was aware of the frustrations. “We are trialling a number of options within our communications centre to reduce the time paramedics spend at hospital,’’ she said. “These initiatives are working, and we’ve seen on average a 17-minute improvement per case in the time it takes to transfer patients at Frankston Hospital since August last year.’’ Mr Jukes said the hospital’s ageing emergency department needed to be upgraded. ‘‘The age, size and design of the department is core to the problem and this will not be resolved until our new $45 million emergency department opens next year..’’

A SAFETY Beach aged-care centre is under investigation by authorities. A Department of Health and Ageing) spokeswoman confirmed that Cambridge Aged Care — which operates several aged-care centres including the Mt Martha Valley Lodge — was under investigation by the department and the Australian Federal Police. She did not specify what or who was under investigation. The DHA spokeswoman said the department had serious concerns about the conduct and quality of care provided by the Cambridge group and has been closely monitoring the organisation for ‘‘some time’’. ‘‘The department monitors approved providers’ compliance with their responsibilities in relation to the quality of care they provide to residents, protecting residents’ user rights (including prudential responsibility for any accommodation bonds) and accountability, including record keeping,’’ she said. The spokeswoman said the Aged Care Standards and Accredita-

tion Agency had undertaken a heightened level of monitoring of Cambridge’s services over the past 12 months. The home was again audited in November last year, and after meeting all 44 expected outcomes in January the ACSAA team recommended that Mt Martha Valley Lodge be accredited until February 22, 2014. A further sanction has been imposed prohibiting the charging of accommodation bonds following noncompliance of financial record keeping. This would expire on June 11, the DHA spokeswoman said. Cambridge Aged Care director Stephen Snowden has been quoted as strongly denying allegations of financial irregularities raised in the metropolitan media last week. A spokesman for Cambridge Aged Care told the Weekly that the company would not comment on the allegations and that lawyers were investigating whether a case for defamation could be launched. — Lee Opitz

A RETIRED military commander was last week appointed to the team in charge of developing the Port of Hastings. Mike Lean (pictured) was named chief executive officer of the Port of Hastings Development Authority. He takes over from acting chief executive officer Ralph Kenyon, who had been in the job since the authority was established in January last year. A retired Australian Defence Force commander, Mr Lean has a background in project and delivery management. Authority chairman Yehudi Blacher said the appointment came at a critical time as planning for the port’s expansion was ramping up. “Mr Lean brings a wealth of project and delivery management expertise, with unparalleled leadership experience that will serve the authority well in this next critical phase in the evolution of the port,’’ he said. ‘‘We look forward to working with him to deliver on the authority’s mandate to establish the Port of Hastings as Victoria’s second international container port.” Ports Minister Denis Napthine said fast-

Appeal for help after man attacked and dog killed A MAN was attacked and his dog killed after an altercation in Hastings about 9.40pm on Friday. The 43-year-old Hastings man was walking his two dogs along Hodgins Road when two men and a woman road past on mini bikes. An altercation ensued in which the man was assaulted with a fence post. A brown Jack Russell-cross mini fox terrier was kicked and killed while the other dog, a golden retriever, ran away. The assailants were seen riding west along Hodgins Road after the incident. They were wearing protective clothing and helmets. The Hastings man was taken to Frankston Hospital with serious injuries. Investigations are continuing. Anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to crimestoppers.com.au.

In a second violent incident in Hastings on the weekend, two Wodonga men were taken to hospital after a stabbing. Three men from Wodonga, who had been drinking at the Kings Creek Hotel, went out to the car park early on Saturday and became involved in a brawl with two men and a teenage girl, Senior Constable Leonie Elliott said. One man, in his 30s, received several stab wounds to his back and was flown to The Alfred hospital. He has been discharged. A second man, 52, remains in a serious but stable condition in the intensive care unit of Frankston Hospital with serious facial injuries. A 17-year-old Hastings girl was charged with five counts of assault and bailed to appear before a Children’s Court next month. She is assisting police with their inquiries. — Samantha Robin

MOOROODUC property owners say the people behind a proposal to construct a cattery and kennel for 100 dogs are barking up the wrong tree if they think they have their support. Notice of a proposal for a new business called Bark Avenue, a 100-place boarding kennel and cattery, was posted at the eight-hectare property at 281 Bungower Road in October. There are already two catteries and a boarding kennel in the area, as well as an egg farm next door. Neighbouring resident Bob Phillips said there were 10 properties within 500 metres of the proposed kennels. The council has received 15 objections to the application. ‘‘We all moved here because of the peace and quiet and this will be too close. It will certainly disturb the amenity of the neighbourhood. We are not rampant greenies, but this is a big development and not suitable for this area.’’ Mr Phillips said objectors were also concerned that the property owners,

Howls of protest: Danny Caron, Judy Banks and Bob Phillips oppose another kennel in Bungower Road. Picture: Wayne Hawkins who own Karingal Veterinary Hospital, intended to expand the business to include a veterinary clinic and hospital. ‘‘This is not consistent with usages under the green wedge management plan which states that any development must be considered with ‘the need to protect the amenity of existing residents’,’’ Mr Phillips said.

Danny Caron, whose small acreage has been sectioned off from the property, said he was concerned for the safety of his three young children. ‘‘Having up to 100 dogs at the back of our property is quite scary for them. What if they get loose? We love dogs and have two of our own. But this is not the place for a big kennel. We weren’t consulted at all.’’ The noise of barking dogs and increased traffic on Bungower Road, particularly since the opening of Peninsula Link, would also be a problem, Mr Caron said. Mr Phillips said he had been told by council officers that the planning application had ‘‘ticked all the boxes’’ and it appeared the only way the development could be stopped was to have all councillors on board. However, attempts to arrange a meeting with ward councillor Lynn Bowden to discuss the matter had been unsuccessful, Mr Phillips said. Neither Cr Bowden nor the applicants responded to the Weekly’s calls before going to press.

Unrest at schools BY DAN MOSS and LEE OPITZ INDUSTRIAL action at schools across the state will continue to paralyse schools as public teachers and the government fail to strike a deal. Australian Education Union spokeswoman Stephanie De Campo said about 30,000 teachers across the state went on strike. At the Hisense Arena in Richmond about 10,000 public teaching staff filled the stadium, and about 2000 watched screens outside on the lawns. They voted on Thursday not to continue a strike but will hold rolling stoppages for half days in Coalition-held electorates from term two. Mornington schools were among those affected. Some kept a small number of classes open, while others, including Balnarring primary, closed the school for the day. Mornington Secondary College principal Sarah Burns said only year 7 students attended school while 60 staff took strike action. ‘‘We have had no complaints from parents, although I think we are all sick of how long this is taking. We have the best interests of

25 . 4 &':?

students at heart, but we need to get a fair deal for everyone. This is all about creating a system that’s not divisive,’’ Mrs Burns said. St Mary’s Catholic Primary School principal Richard Mucha said most of the Hastings school’s staff had taken part in the strike. The school had three classes operational, half its usual capacity. While the Catholic system’s pay structure for teachers differs slightly from the state system, he said any wage agreements reached would follow on to the Catholic sector. ‘‘The first priority should always be what is in the best interest of the students. It is vital that we attract terrific teachers and retain them in the profession. ‘‘Often, we lose a lot of teachers after the first few years of teaching, which is why the pay structure is so important.’’ Mr Mucha said a performance-based pay structure would not offer the best outcome for students as it encouraged teachers to work against each other. ‘‘We need a pay structure that encourages teachers to work together to build on their strengths and minimise their weaknesses. ‘‘If that happens, it will be a win for students.’’

Colours galore on the races catwalk BY SANDRA BULL THERE was a sea of colour at the Mornington Cup last Wednesday as fashionistas battled it out on the fashions on the field catwalk. Peplum-style dresses were popular, as were bright tangerine and hot pink ensembles and florals and prints. Buns, currently back in fashion, allowed colourful hats to be showcased while other contenders wore sleek ponytails. The men mainly sported suits and hats, with a splash of colour being provided by ties and bowties and the occasional flower tucked in the lapel. The 40-plus category was won by Vicki Petkoski of Kensington who proved to be the best advertisement for her own design. The founder of Vezzano Couture wore a spearmint green dress with lace side panels, accented with tangerine shoes and bag. Her domed pillbox hat, in the same fabric, was a collaboration with popular peninsula milliner Annette Sanfilippo. Ms Petkoski said she started her design company, which specialises in race wear, two years ago and would love to establish an outlet on the

peninsula. ‘‘I love to come to country races, especially one this large,’’ she said. Natasha Raleigh of Wattle Glen took out the under-40 category with a fresh floral look topped off by a hot pink and red hat. ‘‘I’m still in shock,’’ she said, after being named the winner of more than $20,000 worth of prizes. She wore a dress from Mornington’s Bettie’s Boutique which stocks frocks with a retro vibe. The winner of the marvellous millinery section, Zorza Goodman of Richmond, was so excited by her victory she accidentally swallowed part of her tongue piercing. Ms Goodman, a milliner, created a hand-painted hat in black, yellow and hot pink which perfectly matched the eye-catching colours of her floral frock. She said as a plus-sized woman, she picked a dress first with a perfect fit, before crafting a matching hat which took more than 40 hours to complete. It was up to Rodney Paterson of Mt Martha to bring a local winning touch to the fashion field. Mr Paterson, wearing a Ted Baker suit and natty

Clean Up Australia Day March 3rd 2013 “If you don’t clean up Australia, who will?” This is the theme for Clean Up Australia Day in 2013. The success of Clean Up Australia Day in the past relied on one simple idea - that individual Australian’s can make a difference and contribute to improving the environment. Every year hundreds of thousands of Australians help to clean up their local environment on Clean Up Australia Day.

In 2013 Clean Up Australia Day will be held on Sunday the 3rd of March.

For further details on Clean Up Australia Day sites on the Mornington Peninsula or to register your own local site log on to www.cleanup.org.au As a registered site or group, Clean Up Australia Day will provide you with a Clean Up Australia Day kit. The kit includes registration papers, posters, bags, one sharp container, a warning sign and a litter report. Please note: volunteers will need to provide their own pair of gloves on the day as well as sunscreen, appropriate clothing and footwear.

High-profile Melbourne milliner Peter Jago, one of three judges, said the standard of entries was even higher this year. ‘‘You can see the influence of the merger with Caulfield. I

think the standard today was exceptional.’’ Mr Jago, who created and wore with aplomb an exotic sequinned hat featuring a miniature peacock, was so impressed with Ms Goodman’s millinery creations he presented her with a signed fan he had been using to beat the heat.

Clydesdales a barrel of fun Carlton and United Breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Clydesdales recently visited Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hotel in Mornington to the delight of patrons and locals. Renowned for their beauty and strength, the horses have been associated with CUB since 1864. Although they were replaced by motorised trucks just after World War II, they can still be seen pulling wagons laden with barrels of ale for promotional visits. The Scottish breed is recognised for its distinctive characteristics and gentle disposition, and have become known as the breed that built Australia. The average lifespan for the massive yet gentle horses is 25-30 years. It takes 45 centimetres of steel to make each horseshoe, which has to be replaced every five to six weeks.

Police clocked the 25 year old travelling at 140km/h in an 80km/h zone on Frankston-Flinders Road, Hastings ,about 3.30am. She was intercepted in a fast food restaurant car park in High Street.

Principal’s Report Amadeo Ferra Acting Principal

When you first walk into McClelland College, you may be forgiven for mistaking it for a private school. Our facilities are modern, spacious and first-class, and our students are courteous and well-presented. You may be surprised to learn we are in fact a government school, proving that great education does not have to come at great cost. Of course, looks aren’t everything. It’s our approach to teaching that sets us apart – and we have the results to prove it. Last year, at VCE level, we achieved an average Study Score of 30 (the same as Frankston High School!), which is an outstanding result, given that our total student population is smaller than comparative schools in the area. The passion that drives our dynamic team is our dedication to a personalised learning approach, including open learning centres and genuinely tailoring education to meet student needs. I am proud to be the Acting Principal at such a school. We do things differently and we have the results to prove it. Visit us and find out for yourself!

When I’m on the road I try to be a bit more responsible with my health,’’ the popular country music performer said from his Brisbane River home. ‘‘I go for a run, I’ve been doing that for years. I get some physio for my creaky knees and the same bloke specialises in massage for voice muscles. It’s leading edge experimental but I do that as well — anything to help the voice.’’ Cassar-Daley said he was lucky to avoid the recent flooding, which struck while he was picking up four golden guitar awards in Tamworth. Cassar-Daley recalls playing at the former Frankston guitar festival. “I [also] did one show on the peninsula years ago when I was heading to catch the ferry to the Queenscliff music festival. I drove down the Moorooduc Highway and I played some little venue just on the highway

there,” Cassar-Daley said of the now long-lost Peninsula Lounge. “I’m glad I’m coming back and look at the company I’m with. We all grew up with the Hoodoo Gurus, Split Enz and Aussie Crawl.’’ Cassar-Daley’s Moorooduc performance on Saturday will feature songs from his 11th album, Home, along with shout-out hits and show stoppers such as People Get Ready. Home features all new songs. Cassar-Daley said that after being in the country music scene for so long, he had been accorded elder statesman status. ‘‘I’ve treated this with respect and in return I’ve got to appreciate the longevity. The fact that people pay for you to play your songs, I don’t think there’s a better job in the world.’’ Cassar-Daley will perform at the Between the Bays Festival this Saturday at Penbank school in Moorooduc.

FEATURESTORY

It’s taboo ... but be honest The stereotype of the hardy Aussie bloke has been wrapped in a flag, drenched in beer and thrown on the barbie by popular culture. Meanwhile, the number of men reporting depression is rising. ALECIA PINNER finds out what men really think about it. FL footballer Harry O’Brien is grateful he told his stepfather he loved him before the man who raised him took his own life. Author and veteran Barry Heard recalls he turned from ‘‘naive man to an animal’’ when he lost his virginity during the Vietnam War and comedian John Fleming was humiliated at school when his classmates called him ‘‘tits’’. Actor Nicholas Brien spent days behind drawn curtains, crippled by anxiety attacks. Therapist Jared Osborne’s ex-girlfriend criticised him constantly because he wasn’t enough of a man. These personal accounts were related recently at What Men Really Think About, a series of events in Melbourne. From next month, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula males will get the chance to attend similar forums at the Frankston Arts Centre. Stories like these are not generally shared by public figures, as they challenge the widely accepted view of what it means to be masculine — to have stoic, unwavering confidence. In a country with its short history tied up in pioneering, war, working the land and big business, the ‘‘real men don’t cry’’ image has made sharing some topics a taboo for men. Adding to the internal conflict, it seems men are also expected to live up to the unattainable image of modern man. SNAGs (Sensitive New Aged Guys), also known as metrosexuals, are emotionally sensitive while looking good and knowing how to please a woman. This male identity crisis of living up to women’s expectations while battling long-held stereotypes can lead to depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship breakdown and suicide, says filmmaker Kim Farrant. Inspired by her brothers, who suffered from depression, Farrant created the What Men Really Think About forums, which were well-attended at the Wheelers Centre in Melbourne. ‘‘It seems like we live in a culture with a predominantly post-war influence, where real men don’t cry or show their feelings ... and women are demanding they do speak up. Pressure can come from outside but can also be reinforced by voices within,’’ she says. ‘‘A lot of research suggests men are living in isolation and are four times more likely to commit suicide than women. A man in Australia commits suicide every 11 hours.’’ Farrant felt she could contribute to social change by introducing men to ‘‘emotionally articulate role models’’ in a safe environment. ‘‘One of the experiences I’ve had men talk about is the need for more emotional foreplay to trust because if you show feelings you’re not a

Speaking up: Dad’s Den Tyabb members Laurence Anderson (foreground) and Reade Smith want men to feel comfortable about talking frankly. Picture: Gary Sissons real man. They need to know there won’t be judgment or ridicule. Safety is so crucial to forming relationships. ‘‘My hope, inspiration and aim is seeing men up on that stage in front of 300 people, talking about things we’ve been conditioned to believe are only acceptable to show a partner. ‘‘If we can get one man out of his small safety net, to confide in a friend, girlfriend, sibling or parent, hopefully we can reduce the depression and suicide rate. ‘‘What’s been so interesting is men are learning they’re not alone, there’s another way out and if you talk about what’s going on, it can shift the mood.’’ Speakers and audience members between the ages of 20-70 had been involved in the workshops. Farrant says the forums are perfectly tailored for our community. ‘‘Frankston Council is open to intellectual debate and there are a lot of issues in Frankston. People are struggling with domestic violence and addiction issues that often

February 20, 2013

aren’t dealt with in a safe, nurturing environment. The most important thing is fostering honest expression.’’ The Frankston forums will explore fatherhood, masculinity and relationships. Speakers will include former AFL footballer and cofounder of White Lion, Glenn Manton, Choir of Hard Knocks co-founder David O’Halloran and comedian and Scared Weird Little Guys performer John Fleming. Fleming told the Weekly he was inspired to take part in the forums for self development and to help improve the mental health of other men. At the Wheelers Centre, he spoke about his body image and connected with audience members who felt the same way. ‘‘It is very personal and I delved deeper into that story than I had before. I hadn’t expressed it publicly; it was very cathartic. I felt quite vulnerable but it was beautiful in the space it happened. In the environment created by Kim Farrant it doesn’t feel like a risk.’’ In Frankston, the father of two children, aged

seven and nine, will talk about fatherhood and how his relationships with his children develop as they do. ‘‘It’ll be about the transitions I’ve experienced, from being single, in a relationship and now with a family. I’ve been growing and developing as much as the kids have. If I can create any kind of template or holding place for this kind of engagement and expression, that would be wonderful.’’ The Dads In Distress organisation runs the Dad’s Den in Tyabb. Group leader Reade Smith says similar forums in Frankston had attracted crowds of men looking for the opportunity to talk. Mr Smith says it is important to have an environment where males are comfortable learning about the issues other men are facing. ‘‘Dads in Distress is one of the supporters of those forums. They are important because they teach men to keep an eye out for their mates. You don’t say toughen up or you’re a wuss. ‘‘Blokes are blokes and they’ll rib each other, but men are becoming a lot more aware that if you don’t listen to your mate when he reaches out for help, then he might not be around.’’ Lifeline spokesman John Mendel said the organisation’s support line had a record number of calls in 2012 and was expecting the number to rise in 2013. Of the 541,000 calls last year, about 38 per cent were from men. Mental health, including depression, was the second-most common topic men wanted to talk about, after relationships and family. ‘‘This is good news because they are overcoming the stigma associated with talking about mental health,’’ Mr Mendel says. Apart from the forums, there are better places than the pub to take friends who are struggling with gambling, substance abuse, relationship breakdowns or simply the pressures of life, Mr Smith says. ‘‘Take them to the coffee shop, get a pizza, sit them down and say: how are things going? That is what mates are supposed to be about. Don’t enable your friends to hurt themselves.’’ A series of What Men Really Think About forums are being held at the Frankston Arts Centre from next month. Tickets cost $5. To book, call 9784 1060 or visit thefac.com.au. Support and a list of local resource centres for men are available at dadsindistress.asn.au. If you or someone you know is experiencing an emotional crisis, call Lifeline, 13 11 14. [WPW]

Blonde a popular winner MORNINGTON trainer Mark Riley always believed Jolie Blonde would win a decent race. The four-year-old mare delivered in the $120,000 Listed Hareeba Stakes (1200m) on Wednesday with a blistering victory on her home track. Jolie Blonde beat home Peter Snowden’s Launay ($7) by almost a length with Mick Price’s Sheila’s Star ($6) third. The local winner was popular on course after she was backed from $17 into $10 in the lead-up to the race. “We’ve had trouble getting her right but she showed us that she’s right back on track and we knew today she was some sort of chance,” Riley said. “They went very hard in front and it was set up for something to come home over the top. Daniel [Stackhouse] rode her an absolute treat. He couldn’t have ridden her any better, it was a fantastic ride.” Stackhouse settled Jolie Blonde close to the tail of the field before the pairing made their move at the top of the straight. With Launay and Sheila’s Star seemingly beat, Stackhouse gave Jolie Blonde her head and she took off for what seemed an easy victory. “It panned out perfectly with plenty of early speed and I had a beautiful run in behind Dwayne Dunn and he just dragged me into the race and she was too good in the end,” a clearly delighted Stackhouse said. “She’s done a good job and has shown what ability that she does have, which is full credit to Mark Riley and his team.” Another local winner was Peter White’s Prussian Power in the $35,000 Superior Food Services Handicap (1000m) with Prussian Power. The $18 shot proved too strong for Robert Smerdon’s Black Jack Boy ($6) and Stephen Brown’s Jacopo ($12). The win continued Prussian Power’s strong preparation after winning at Pakenham at the start of January. Matt Laurie’s Two Sugars took out the final of the Mitavite Summer Challenge by a length from the Hawkes family’s Mashkoor ($4) and Colin and Cindy Alderson’s Sapphire Princess ($5). Ray Coombes’ Captivating Lady ($4.40) defeated Miss Del Toro and Unruly Princess to win the $35,000 Nepean Waste Handicap (1200m). — Brad McGrath [ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Jumps to glory: Tuscan Fire, ridden by Glen Boss, won the $350,000 Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) in glorious conditions on Wednesday. Boss was fined $1000 by stewards for ‘celebrating’ before crossing the finishing line. Picture: Gary Sissons

Tuscan Fire blazes to cup win BY BRAD McGRATH FORMER jumper Tuscan Fire has booked his place in the Caulfield Cup after storming to victory in the $350,000 Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) last Wednesday. The Dan O’Sullivan-trained six year old overcame a quality field and an eventful race after Titch threw Linda Meech off his back just out of the barriers. O’Sullivan, who is from Ballarat, said he had a sneaking suspicion Tuscan Fire was good enough to claim Mornington’s biggest race. You would think O’Sullivan would shelve plans to race Tuscan Fire over the jumps again with the win earning automatic qualification into the Caulfield Cup, but he pointed to other horses who have mixed flat and jumps racing.

“You couldn’t have believed that it would work out like that and that he’d get the run that he did,” O’Sullivan said. “Going back a long while ago I had this plan but I wasn’t game to say it because people would think I was overrating the horse. “We’ve won this today and he’s still got a couple of runs left in him. We’ll just enjoy the moment today. The jumping is still there if we want it. Remember Vintage Crop was a jumper.” Tuscan Fire ($6) was given the perfect run by champion jockey Glen Boss as he settled her just behind the leaders early. Boss expertly guided Tuscan Fire into the clear on the home straight before asking the gutsy gelding for more. The response was staggering as he breezed away to win by almost three lengths.

Mornington trainer Pat Carey’s Durnford ($4.80) was second and Peter Moody’s Macedonian ($18) finished third. “He gave me a great ride,” Boss said. “He was so relaxed in the run, especially when there was a bit going on with that loose horse. It was good fun. ‘‘It’s my first Mornington Cup. This track’s been a nemesis for me. I’d hate to see my strike rate here. It would be shocking, so to get this one for Dan O’Sullivan is very good. He’s turned this horse out in unbelievable condition every time I’ve ridden him.” The victory has seen Tuscan Fire’s odds for the Caulfield Cup plummet from $81 to $34 given he is likely to attract just 51.5kg. O’Sullivan is now likely to set Tuscan Fire for the 3200m Adelaide Cup on March 11.

It’s Twilight time as royal raider shines bright A SYDNEY raider took out the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) at Mornington last week to stamp herself as one of the most promising two year olds in the country. The Bjorn Baker-trained Twilight Royale outclassed the nine-strong field after Stephen Theodore was forced to withdraw favourite Crack A Roadie after he got cast in his box. But despite the field lacking the class of last year when Snitzerland stormed to an impressive victory, Twilight Royale showed she has a bright future. The victory takes her record to two wins and two seconds from four starts and boosts her February 20, 2013

total prizemoney to more than $350,000. Baker, who only began training by himself 18 months ago, said the victory was all about the connections who had taken a punt on an untried trainer. “I have to thank the owners. I didn’t have too many horses when I bought this filly and not too many owners to get into a horse so I’m very grateful and it’s worked out super,” he said. “We’ll just see how she comes through today before we work out any immediate plans for her future.” Jockey Brenton Avdullah guided the $1.95 favourite towards the tail of the field before opening

her up with about 600m to go. Twilight Royale blew away Mick Price pair Resistant ($3.60) and Lannister ($8) with Avdullah paying tribute to his mount. “She’s probably just blundered the start at her past two which hasn’t helped her,” he said. “Today she left the gates as good as she can and there was a good bit of tempo on early so I just kept her out of trouble and rode her like the best horse in the race. “It was a race that looked like it was lacking a bit of depth and I thought that if she brought her best form from Sydney then she’d be winning.” — Brad McGrath [WPW]

Middle order to Mounties’ rescue Devils BY MORGAN COLE MT Eliza survived a tough first innings against Crib Point with the Mounties’ middle order coming to the rescue after a top-order collapse in their MPCA District Shield match on Saturday. The Mounties (sixth) and Crib Point (fifth) are in a logjam with Peninsula Old Boys (fourth) and Mt Martha (seventh) who are all desperately fighting for a place in the finals. Mt Eliza had a torrid start to the innings but was able to make 175 against a fellow finals contender. Mounties openers Shane Speedie (4) and Scott Tansley (0) did not have an impact, with coach Jason Mathers also falling for a duck. Mt Eliza captain Lyle House curbed the early slide with 22 before he was caught off a Luke Herrington delivery, the Mounties finding themselves at a dangerous 4-45. ‘‘[Luke] Herrington really troubled us early,’’ House said. ‘‘Their bowlers really dictated the game at the start.’’ Crib Point all-rounder and captain Herrington was unstoppable early

You’re out: Crib Point’s Luke Herrington celebrates a wicket against Mt Eliza on Saturday. Picture: Wayne Hawkins with his three scalps of Mathers, Speedie and House. With the Mounties top order collapsing, the middle order rose to the occasion led by all-

rounder Justin Grant (32) who helped reignite their innings. ‘‘Considering the start we had I am happy with how the innings finished,’’ House said. ‘‘We

are still well and truly in the game.’’ Matt O’Brien (33), Ben Tracy (24) and the ever-consistent Lloyd Gourelde-Saint-Pern (33) followed the lead of Grant, breathing life back into the match for Mt Eliza. While Herrington took care of the Mounties’ top order, Henry Dolphin was equally as damaging, taking four wickets to end Mt Eliza’s innings. Crib Point faced three overs before stumps, with Mt Eliza making an early breakthrough. Justin Savio claimed the wicket of in-form Matt Blake (1). In other Provincial Shield matches, Baxter continued its charge towards finals, bowling out Ballam Park for 164 and then making 235 off just 32 overs. Baxter’s Shane McComb contributed a glorious 144. Heatherhill is well placed to upset ladder leaders Sorrento, making 260. Long Island has given itself every chance of success over Rye making 252 in its first innings. The Peninsula Old Boys put their best foot forward as they fought their way towards finals, making 208 in the first innings against Moorooduc.

late in the day making 89 in their first innings. Rosebud is poised to secure victory over the struggling Pearcedale, the Buds chasing 121. Red Hill is defending 162 against Carrum Downs, the Hillmen getting off to a near perfect start in their defence taking two early wickets in Carrum Downs’ first innings.

DELACOMBE Park has shown no signs of easing away from its rich vein of form, making 221 against Flinders in an MPCA District shield match on Saturday. The Devils have been in red-hot form since returning from the mid-season break, taking the scalp of Langwarrin and blasting away Main Ridge last round. Despite the Devils losing captain Nick Christides (10) cheaply, young opening batsman Connor Glenndinning (58) steadied the ship. Delacombe Park coach John Guthrie gave Glenndinning plenty of support and the pair formed a brief but productive partnership. ‘‘He [Glenndinning] has batted well for us all year,’’ Guthrie said ‘‘He’s been making 20s and 30s, so to get the 50 was good for him.’’ Flinders coach Dwayne Field was wary of the powerful Delacombe Park batting line-up, Devils all rounder Chris Brittain at the top of the list. ‘‘We were worried that he could get away from us,’’ Field said. But his fears were allayed when Tom Clements had Brittain lbw. ‘‘We bowled pretty tight all day,’’ Field said. ‘‘The ground was pretty quick and we were happy to keep them at 220.’’ The Delacombe Park tail offered plenty of resistance. Simon Poynton (29), Simon Dignam (30) and Shane Deal (25) all provided some late spark. The Devils’ tail was cleaned up by Flinders youngster Louis Gillies, who showed guile beyond his 16 years to claim 4-43. ‘‘He [Gillies] was really good for us late in the day,’’ Field said. ‘‘He got blasted on his first over but he kept his head down and got the reward.’’ In other Provincial Shield matches, Baden Powell is in prime position to overrun Seaford, bowling it out for 78. The Braves finished on 6-67 at stumps. The fierce Hastings attack showed why it is so revered, taking out the Langwarrin batting line-up for 166, one of the Kangaroos’ lowest innings for the season. Carrum (2-49) is well into its chase against Main Ridge, which made 196 in its first innings. The Pines haves set Boneo a massive task, making 283. Somerville has blasted 380 against Frankston YCW, Eagles batsman Ben Delaney again at the forefront making 81.

Career-best bowling effort rattles Carlton A FIVE-wicket haul to emerging allrounder Chris McCormick has put Frankston Peninsula Heat in a commanding position in a Premier Cricket clash against Carlton. McCormick tore the heart out of the Blues’ batting line-up to record career-best figures of 5-44 from 19 overs as the Heat took advantage of a bowler-friendly pitch at A H Butler Oval. The Blues were eventually bowled out for 178 with James Miller (2-22) and Ben Ashkenazi (2-26) also among the wickets. ‘‘We’ve been playing really well after Christmas — we’ve beaten some

sides that have been low on the ladder,’’ Miller said. ‘‘Carlton have been in the top four the past few years, so it was good to do well.’’ In reply, the Heat survived a tough 12-over period without losing any wickets to finish Saturday’s play at 0-24. Matt Lineker (14no) and Ben Hillard (9no) kept the talented Carlton bowling attack out. The Heat require 155 for victory but Miller knows it will be no easy task. ‘‘Opening the batting at this level is always very difficult and to do it for

12 overs at the end of a day’s play is very tough,’’ he said. ‘‘They have got some very good bowlers and the guys did really well. ‘‘From a Frankston point of view in the past we might have lost a couple of wickets in that 12-over period.’’ Miller said McCormick was getting results after putting in an enormous amount of work and being given an opportunity after the retirement of champion paceman Darren Groves. ‘‘It’s the first time he’s done it [five wickets] at this level,’’ Miller said. ‘‘It’s a good reward for hard work and he’s done the hard yards for the club.

‘‘There is always the opportunity when a club stalwart leaves — you can’t replace people like that. It has to be a bit of a collective — and Chris has stepped up and not replaced him but done well.’’ The Heat are locked in a tense battle for a finals position and desperately need to secure first innings points in the clash against Carlton, with their finals position no certainty. ‘‘It’s a really tight competition at the moment,’’ Miller said. ‘‘We’ll just focus on what we need to do and I think there is only one game between fourth and 10th on the ladder.’’

Yabbies in hot seat as grip on No.1 spot in jeopardy TOOTGAROOK has given ladder leaders Tyabb plenty to be nervous about, bowling it out for 150 on the first day of play in their Sub District Shield match on Saturday. Tootgarook was able to dismiss inform Tyabb early, then get off to a solid start in its innings, finishing the day at 2-60. Tyabb battled early in its first innings, losing openers Ben Van Wees [WPW]

(7) and Brayden Gleeson (1) cheaply. Captain Luke Rus (61) stepped in and provided stability for the Yabbies but was unable to form any partnerships, with wickets continuing to fall. Rienzie Wijeratne made 25 to help nudge up the Yabbies tally but was soon back in the sheds. Tyabb is just holding on to the top spot with Balnarring nipping at its heels, with a victory over Seaford

imminent for Balnarring, which will have them leapfrog the Yabbies. In other Sub District Shield matches, French Island stunned Dromana making 383 in their first innings, Islander batsman Ben King making 134. Balnarring is having no trouble against the Seaford Tigers, bowling them all out for 88 in their first innings, the Saints passing the Tigers
