Low tide and time THIS time of year is when Western Port has its secondlowest and highest tides after spring. Looking out over Hastings Bight this week, it’s almost as though someone pulled the plug in the bath tub. Wait six hours, however, and it’s back to normal – plenty of water for everyone. Western Port’s three-metre tide presents challenges for boat skippers of all types. It’s also the reason Western Port is home to tens of thousands of migratory waders and seabirds, with the bay listed under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of international significance. More than 270 square kilometres of mud flats are exposed at low tide and other areas of Western Port are very shallow. It’s a haven for seagrass beds, mangrove and saltmarsh, providing a wide diversity of habitats for wader birds as well as important fish species such as King George whiting, bream and mullet.

Islanders ferry unhappy By Mike Hast THE ferry from Stony Point to French Island and Cowes on Phillip Island is likely to be cancelled more often due to rule changes. The ferry service was suspended on Saturday afternoon after wind of more than 25 knots was predicted. New WorkSafe rules forced the operator, Inter Island Ferries, to cancel two trips, disappointing islanders and tourists. Ferry boss Frank Denvir said new restrictions had been put in place last year after WorkSafe officers had in-

spected jetties at Stony Point, Tankerton on French Island and Cowes. “We’re now not allowed to operate when the wind is over 25 knots and blowing against the tide,” he said. Waves made it unsafe to board or leave the ferry from fixed-height jetties. Mr Denvir predicted there would be more cancellations during winter and spring when Western Port was windier. About 20 trips have been cancelled since last April. In 2008, Mr Denvir said that despite the vagaries of weather, services were rarely cancelled.

“The cancellation rate is less than one per cent despite waves of up to three metres, winds of 35-40 knots and the outdated, badly designed piers that we have to use.” Mr Denvir has been trying to get Parks Victoria to improve the three jetties for many years. Floating pontoons would make the jetties safer due to Western Port’s tide of up to three metres. Parks Victoria has built pontoons at several Western Port jetties in recent years including Hastings, Rhyll, Blind Bight and Warneet, all of which are

mainly used by recreational boaties Mr Denvir said Stony Point was fine except during easterlies but Tankerton and Cowes were more exposed. He said French Island residents had complained about cancellations but he had explained it was not the fault of Inter Island Ferries. French Island Community Association president Michelle Neesham said she did not want to comment until the group had received a formal reply from Mr Denvir. When the ferry is cancelled, islanders are either stuck or have to use

A hundred years ago: The Hastings football team in 1913.

Blues to name team of century By Vic Jeremiah HASTINGS Football Club is 125 this year and has recently announced that to help celebrate the significant milestone it will select a team of the century. It will be selected from players who have represented the club between 1900 and 1999. In addition to the team of the century, the club will name a team for each of the 10 decades from the same period. The announcement of the teams as well as the presentation of other awards will be made at a gala function in the Gunamatta Room at Mornington Racing Club on Saturday

6 April. An invitation is extended to everyone who has enjoyed the successes of the club. It will be a night to remember where a large gathering of past and present players, officials and supporters will have the opportunity to come together and acknowledge the outstanding contributions of so many great players who have represented the club over its long history, and made it the proud and successful club it has been since its formation. Names such as Hibbert, Cremen, Everist, Watson, Stone, Coleman, Carmichael, Rollinson, Goold and Bull are just a few of the many great

players who have brought success to this great sporting club, which has played in 31 grand finals for a total of 21 premierships. This fantastic record gives Hastings the distinction of being the most successful club in the history of Mornington Peninsula football. The team of the century function coincides with the opening game of the 2013 season where coach Glenn Michie and his team are looking forward to the season ahead and are quietly confident that it can be a very successful year for the Blues. For details, call the club on 59791740 by no later than 20 March.

Steamed up over rail museum By Mike Hast THE Australian Railway Historical Society is building a head of steam in the campaign to move its Williamstown North railway museum to Moorooduc. Society consultant John Hearsch recently briefed Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors and the society is about to sign an agreement with Mornington Railway Preservation Society. Mornington Railway leases 11 hectares (27 acres) opposite the intersection of Moorooduc Highway and Eramosa Rd West from state government agency VicTrack. Volunteers have been running tourist trains between Moorooduc and Mornington since 1999 on part of the line that was closed by the Liberal state government in 1981 after 92 years of operation. Mornington Railway has agreed in principle to ARHS using about three hectares (7.5 acres) of its leased land for a state railway museum. Mr Hearsch told councillors the museum would include a display hall for large exhibits and a mezzanine floor for smaller items, a library, theatre and offices. Nearby would be “roundhouse” to display steam locomotives. ARHS has 15 Victorian Railways steam locomotives, ranging from the diminutive F class to “Heavy Harry”, the largest locomotive to operate in Victoria. It also has VR steam cranes, diesel and electric locomotives, suburban and country passenger carriages, guards’ vans and freight wagons.

Heavy worker: Mornington Railway engineer Gerald Spoor with the K163 steam loco.

The Victorian branch of ARHS was founded in 1945 and has 750 members. Its museum opened in 1962 but cannot expand as it is next to rail workshop operations and had a low public profile. Mr Hearsch told shire councillors the site was open to the elements, being only 1200 metres from Port Phillip. “The corrosion of all metallic objects

is an ongoing challenge. The condition of almost all exhibits is one of slow, steady deterioration,” he said. Income was limited to gate takings and publication sales, and there had been no state funding for running the museum or conservation of exhibits. “The museum has a comprehensive and irreplaceable static collection of large and small items, mostly owned by the state, which are representative

of more than 100 years of Victoria’s rail heritage and history.” Mr Hearsch said the museum needed to be “re-established in a way that is seen to be of value to and appreciated by its local community as well as the wider population of Melbourne and regional Victoria”. “A professionally presented railway museum, suitably promoted, can become a significant tourist attraction, particularly if provided with suitable facilities for families and other visitors, for example, a picnic area, barbecues, food and sales outlet. “A successful railway museum needs to have multiple functions to educate, entertain and promote both curiosity and interest in the science, engineering and operation of a railway.” He said the Moorooduc site could be developed to match rail museums at Ipswich in Queensland, Thirlmere south of Sydney and at Adelaide. It could one day rival famous museums in Britain, France, Sweden, United States, India and Japan. ARHS had investigated sites in outer suburbs and country Victoria and the only places that met site criteria were in Seymour and Ballarat. “Moorooduc was a late consideration following an invitation from MRPS. Its only disadvantages were no public transport, no presently useable connectivity to the wider rail network, no infrastructure that could become part of the museum, and ineligibility of funding support from the state’s Regional Infrastructure Development Fund,” Mr Hearsch said.

“There is little doubt that a suitably promoted and visible railway museum would attract considerable passing traffic, enabling people to visit as part of a wider day trip or holiday outing, as distinct from the museum being a single destination.” Mr Hearsch said the Ipswich museum drew 100,000 visitors annually and Moorooduc could have a similar number within 10 years. The project could employ 15 people as well as workers for restoration, conservation and maintenance of museum exhibits. There was potential for government funding for additional staff undergoing training and skills development. “These factors produce immediate and substantial multiplier that would benefit almost all sectors of the peninsula’s economy.” The next steps included gaining state government support for moving the museum to Moorooduc, seeking funding for a concept plan and business case, and seeking the support of Heritage Victoria and Museum Victoria. Mr Hearsch has asked the shire for “ongoing advocacy and advice” and help with “heritage, environmental and other issues that might influence planning outcomes for the proposed museum development”. ■ Mornington Railway Preservation Society runs trains on the first three Sundays each month, with the first train leaving Moorooduc at 11am and Mornington at 11.30am.

Day of surf, sun, sand and smiles A BRIGHT clear day, southeasterly wind and small swell. Normally a day for golf or tennis – anything but surfing. But not on Saturday when 174 volunteers went to Point Leo for the season’s second event organised by the Disabled Surfers Association’s Mornington Peninsula branch. The conditions for the day were just right: warm weather and small, fun waves. The events being organised by the DSA branch are popular, with 74 people with varying disabilities coming to have a go at surfing. Many were coming back, with their carers, for the second or third time. Since its formation just over a year

ago, the branch has raised $42,000, buying five wide-tyred, beach-friendly wheelchairs to ferry participants to and from the water. It has a trailer and “soft” surfboards. The first event last November involved 20 participants and 226 volunteers, making it the biggest debut event held by any of the DSA’s 15 branches. At the February event there were 52 participants. “Our function is to provide a safe surfing experience for people with disabilities, giving them access to something that we take for granted,” peninsula branch treasurer John Bowers said. As with the other two events, Point Leo Life Saving Club opened its

doors to the DSA branch and the Point Leo foreshore committee donated the day’s gate receipts. Branch president Stewart Lockie said Saturday’s event was “the most successful day so far”. While it was the final event scheduled for the season, the committee will meet to discuss offseason projects. Two events have already been slotted in for 2014 with the possibility of another one later this year at Phillip Island. The beach wheelchairs are available for use by the public at Dromana Bay Life Saving Club and from the Point Leo foreshore committee. Call ranger Ray Gould on 0408 536 143. Keith Platt

Teens sought over night festival attack on woman A HASTINGS woman has told of her terror at being attacked by four teenagers during a community festival in Hastings. Frankston detectives are investigating the attack, which occurred during the fireworks of the annual Western Port Festival on Hastings foreshore the weekend before last. The 38-year-old mother of three made an emotional appearance at a police media conference on the following Tuesday, describing her assailants as â&#x20AC;&#x153;sick, sick, sick peopleâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just hope they can find the people who did it and this will not happen to anyone else,â&#x20AC;? she said. She told how one of the young men had held her from behind while another of the group had attacked her from the front, trying to pull off her pants. Two other men stood in front of her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was violent; it was very physical,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt completely violated; very insecure and unsafe.â&#x20AC;? The woman said she had gone to the foreshore about 9.30pm on Saturday to meet friends and watch the fireworks, but had been unable to find her friends. She was standing in an unlit area between the carnival rides and the mangroves when she was set on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very fearful of what they were going to do to me. [I was] immediately thinking of my family back home and my three young children.â&#x20AC;?

Detective Sergeant Stephen McKenzie of the sexual assault and child abuse investigation team at Frankston said the victim was able to fight off the teenagers, who ran off in the direction of Pelican Park recreation centre on Marine Parade. He appealed for public assistance, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hundreds of people would have been in the vicinity of the attackâ&#x20AC;?. As it was dark at the time of the as-

sault, the woman was unable to provide detailed descriptions of her assailants, except that one was about 160cm tall, had messy hair and was wearing jeans. Detective McKenzie said it was believed all four attackers were aged in their mid to late teens. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to www.crimestoppers.com.au Jo Winterbottom

Dog walker attacked for a second time A MAN who was attacked with a metal bar and whose dog was kicked to death in Hastings two weeks ago has again been set upon during his nightly walk with his dog. The 43-year-old Hastings man was walking on Hodgins Rd with his remaining dog, a golden retriever, about 9pm on Sunday 24 February when he encountered two young men who appeared to be drunk and were throwing objects at passing cars and abusing pedestrians. An altercation broke out between the youths and the dog walker and they attempted to punch the man, making slight contact with his face, but causing no injury.

The victim was still recovering from serious injuries sustained in the previous assault in which a trio of youths who were riding trail bikes beat him with a metal bar and a fence post. One of his two dogs, a brown mini fox terrier cross Jack Russell, was kicked and killed. Police of Hastings crime investigation unit are still investigating the attack, which occurred on Hodgins Rd near Constantine Way about 9.30pm on Friday 15 February. Hastings detectives said the two incidents were unrelated. Anyone with information can contact Hastings police on 5970 7800 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Midwife mother MOTHER of four Kylie Hosking knows about the care pregnant women want to receive. A midwife at Frankston Hospital, she is also one of three Australian Nursing Federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Undergraduate Midwives of the Year. Ms Hosking, of Tyabb, is pictured with Sandra Sawdy and her baby, Sebastian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so surprised to receive the award. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know I had even been nominated,â&#x20AC;? Ms Hosking said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I received my letter, at first I thought it was a parking fine so you could imagine my shock when I opened it and it said I had won an award.â&#x20AC;? The annual awards are made to one outstanding nursing and midwifery student from each Victorian University, TAFE and registered training organisation.

NEWS DESK Wildlife experts, professional and amateur, toured French Island on Valentine’s Day to find out about the island’s natural attractions and efforts being made to reach a state of balance between introduced and native species. Keith Platt joined the journey arranged by the Western Port Catchment Committee.

Visit to an island of natural attractions

Wild catch: French Island National Park ranger Dave Stevenson shows a photograph of a 5.5-kilogram cat, one of 700 ferals caught over the past three years.

NATIONAL parks rangers usually have similar problems, ranging from fighting fires to controlling visitors, vermin and weeds. Few rangers in Australia are faced with a problem bird as colourful or recognisable as those managing French Island. Peacocks are on the unwanted resident list in the national park, which takes up nearly three-quarters of Victoria’s largest island and is the centrepiece of Western Port. There are no foxes, but the island’s rangers are kept busy trying to rid the park of rabbits, feral cats, feral goats, feral pigs, Indian mynahs and starlings.

On the bus: Tour operator Lois Airs, right, drove the wildlife experts around French Island, to bird habitats, beaches and checking roadside water bores. The midday stop was lunch at the Eco-Inn, opposite page, to hear about the island’s natural and cultural attractions.

In the past three years they have trapped 700 cats, some weighing up to seven kilograms. Koalas, a threatened species elsewhere in Australia, are thriving and are a disease-free population that is being exported. They were introduced in the 1880s and have been so successful in colonising their new island home that fertility-controlling implants are being used to curtail their numbers. French Island’s koalas are free of the natural control chlamydia, a disease that affects koalas throughout Australia. With a permanent population of about 90 people, plus 45 “part-

timers”, the island remains a distant destination to most Melbourne residents. The Perseverance Primary School has 10 pupils; older children attend secondary schools on the Mornington Peninsula. Once earmarked as the site for a nuclear power station and shipbuilding works, the island is now mostly national park, a designation that can at times sit uncomfortably alongside privately owned properties. But it is this isolation that makes it such an attraction for anyone interested in where the island’s wild things are. Parks ranger Dave Stevenson said cat traps were baited with chicken

Understanding the island

bought from KFC because of its long shelf life. He said the cats were “nearly impossible to eradicate”, with the wild population sometimes being added to by cats kept as pets by residents. The peacocks were another matter, breeding in swamp paperbarks and spreading blackberries that are a threat to the habitat of native potoroos. He said sambar deer were the island’s largest wild animal “but we don’t target them as a pest species because the damage has been done”. The deer are protected under the Wildlife Act and are seen as a resource, with shooters being required to buy licences. French Island Community

Association president Michelle Neesham said the islanders were “very independent, self-sufficient”. While they paid no rates or car registrations, the islanders were hit by travel expenses, such as “$380 return for a cattle truck – it’s cheaper to go to Queensland”. Residents on the low-lying island (the grandiosely named high point of Mt Wellington is 96 metres) can lead an isolated life or catch ferries to Stony Point or Phillip Island. Tourists are welcome, although most attractions are all natural with isolation being a big drawcard. Roads are rough and getting cars across can be problematic. Mountain bikes and walking are good options.

But an island without foxes so close to Melbourne has also attracted scientists who last year chose the island for an open test laboratory to breed the threatened eastern barred bandicoot. If successful, the plan would mirror that of the koala, except it would be bandicoots being exported to areas on the mainland where they are either threatened of have been wiped out. No fertile male bandicoots have been put on the island, although University of Melbourne researcher Rebecca Groenewagener says the environment appears suited to their survival. Cats have caught and attacked some of the 18 bandicoots released in July

last year “but others are doing quite well”. “They are living in slightly different areas for a grassland animal, but we are checking if their diet has changed,” Ms Groenewagener said. The checks included gauging the effects on insects, which formed part of a bandicoot diet. Orchid expert and island resident Clive Gordes criticised the bandicoot program being run without a prior “comprehensive survey of insects on the island”. “Bandicoots are insect-eating and there‘s no database. We need something to measure their effects, but bandicoots will be introduced here, I’ve no doubt.”

THE Valentine’s Day visit to French Island arranged last month by Western Port Catchment Committee saw 40 representatives of a variety of organisations, including local government, Western Port Biosphere Reserve, Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority, Parks Victoria, French Island Landcare and Community Association, Melbourne Water, Southern Rural Water, Western Port Seagrass Partnership, Dolphin Research Institute, Victoria Farmers’ Federation, Friends of Warneet, Phillip Island Nature Park, Bass Valley Landcare, Koo Wee Rup Swamp Landcare, Western Port Protection Council, Business Times magazine, Port of Hastings, Patricks, Victorian National Parks Association and the Department of Sustainability and Environment. Catchment committee secretary Ian Stevenson listed topics of the day as: • Status of the pilot introduction of the eastern barred bandicoot. • Koala sterilisation program. • Cat control. • Landcare coastal revegetation sites and community nursery. • Roosting sites for migratory waderbirds at Chilcot Rocks, Tortoise Head. • Nesting site for fairy terns on Rams Island. • Short-tail shearwater (muttonbird) ecology. • Underground aquifer (bore) examination on Coast Rd. • Mangrove restoration. The WPCC meets bimonthly in Cranbourne to discuss various aspects of the Western Port natural environment.

ROSEBUD KITE FESTIVAL ~Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier Kite Flying event.

FRANKSTON Hospital will not reopen its shortstay ward of 10 beds before Easter despite the federal government promising extra money. The hospital closed the ward after the federal government late last year cut $107 million from Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health budget, including almost $5 million from Peninsula Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. The cuts came after the Australian Bureau of Statistics reduced Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population estimates for the current financial year, triggering the federal cuts. The action sparked a long-running dispute between Canberra and the Baillieu government that continues. Late last month the federal government said it would restore the $107 million but send it direct to health networks rather than the state government. Hospital spokesman John Jukes said the ward was meant to open after the summer break but would stay closed until Easter as â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have received no formal notificationâ&#x20AC;? of the federal money. Patients use the ward if their stay is less than 48 hours. Laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candidate for Dunkley, Sonya Kilkenny, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ted Baillieu has proved heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely incapable of running Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health systemâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 46,000 Victorians are languishing on elective surgery waiting lists, ambulance response times have blown out and Mr Baillieuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response has been to slash $616 million from the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health system and point the finger at the federal government,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the federal government would provide $4.9 million to Peninsula Health â&#x20AC;&#x153;to ensure services are restoredâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I call on Mr Baillieu to immediately restore the cuts he has inflicted on Victorians, which means providing $26.7 million to Peninsula Health.â&#x20AC;?

Mr Baillieu reportedly said the federal backflip would not solve all the problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The damage has already been done. It is going to take some time for the hospitals that receive this money to reverse the changes they have put in place,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. State Health Minister David Davis said he would push for ongoing cuts to be returned over the next three years. He said the cuts had crippled Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health system and it would take a long time for the impact to be reversed, even with the return of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding. Mike Hast

PSOs on the way By Neil Walker VICTORIA Police says efforts to recruit the required number of protective services officers are on track, with an extensive recruitment advertising campaign seeking to boost officer numbers. A $2.7 million TV, press and online advertising campaign, running from January to March, is trying to entice â&#x20AC;&#x153;smart, fitâ&#x20AC;? people with â&#x20AC;&#x153;excellent communication skillsâ&#x20AC;? to apply for the jobs maintaining safety at Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s train stations during evenings from 6pm until the last train departs the station. Just two stations on the Frankston line outside Melbourne CBD currently have armed PSOs on duty. Frankston train station welcomed its PSOs in August last year with officers arriving at Carrum train station in January this year. The state government pledged to have 940 protective services officers at all metropolitan and major regional railway stations by November 2014. A date has yet to be set for their deployment at Mentone, Parkdale, Mordialloc, Edithvale, Chelsea, Bonbeach, Seaford and Kananook.

Also a new book from local author and teacher Robert we are showcasing a Favretto - for the great new Australian kids. And some product called lovely new leather Planks from Green bound classics Hat Workshop in which we have Melbourne - amazing currently featured stuff! in our window.

The Book Page PRESENTED BY BOOK STORE

What are planks? Planks are dynamic building blocks employing only gravity and friction to create a wide range of structures. They are precisely cut from New Zealand plantation pine, are identical in shape and size, long enough to counter balance, thin enough to stack, heavy enough to weigh structures down and keep them together and cut so exactly that they can stand on end. They are both playful and educational, allowing children to experience and negotiate a wide range of important and exciting social skills: encouraging them to understand and explore the ideas and processes of mathematics and science in a creative way. I just think they are really cool! PLANKS are available in both plain and colours, in boxes of 100 - for $59 Their website is full of amazing photos, well worth a visit. www.greenhatworkshop.com We are featuring a few ideas from them right here and now.

Mr Fav is Back Robert Favretto - Mr Fav to his students, I believe - is a primary teacher here on the Peninsula, and he has a new book out for younger readers, called Cat-astrophe. Rhys’s teacher, Mr Shakespeare, wants him to write a story. But it’s no easy task- especially when he’s got writer’s block and doesn’t get along with his teacher. Inspiration comes from an unexpected source, and the story of a cricket match, a new neighbour ADORABLE LITTLE POP & SLOT and an annoying cat becomes a winner. DECORATIONS. But is it all as it seems? There is Father Christmas complete with free standing reindeer, tree and sleigh full of giftsAnd we have the traditional Christmas Cat-astrophe is fun and entertainingtree with baubles and gifts.

Station master THE peaceful Balnarring lifestyle does not get much better than this beautiful, resortinspired family property with all the trimmings. Set on a landscaped 1000-square metre block, the home is privately set behind a tall row of hedges, providing total privacy for the pool and front yard areas. From the double garage - which does have internal access there is a pathway leading up to the front door of the home. From the wide hallway, you enter into a spacious family room and then into a splendid open-plan area which utilises every corner, with plenty of room for a lounge and dining and even a study corner for students has been incorporated. There is a recessed television unit and the entire space has a sunny northerly aspect and a delightful view of the front garden. An impressive kitchen has a wraparound benchtop and there is plenty of cupboard space. Appliances include a wall-oven and dishwasher. When moving in, new owners will also like the wide entry from the living room to the family room - even the largest sofas and widescreen televisions should fit through with ease. A third living area is the fantastic games room with space for the billiard table and a great built-in bar. The home has three bedrooms and a separate office with fitted desk which could be a fourth if required. For parents, the main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in robe and two more bedrooms have built-in robes. If the living and bedroom areas of the home take up half the available space then the expansive entertaining areas take up the other half. A huge undercover area practically doubles the living space and from the pergola you have a great view of the solar heated, in-ground pool and spa, which is all securely fenced. Space is definitely not at a premium here, you get a lot of home for your money. The rear garden is also landscaped and there are two sheds with the double garage also boasting a workshop area.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Moorooduc’s Jones brothers top market, Bittern ravaged by fire Compiled by Cameron McCullough From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 8 March 1913. MISS Annie Brody, the talented elocutionist, will recite ‘Home Sweet Home’ and ‘The Waybacks at the Zoo,’ at the Choral concert at Mornington on Monday next. *** AT the forthcoming choral concert, to raise funds for the erection of a fence around the arena of the sports ground at Mornington, Mr Walter Jennings, the well-known tenor, will sing ‘Thora’ and ‘La Donna Mobile’ from ‘Rigolleto.’ *** THE residents of Mornington will have the opportunity of hearing the Frankston Choral Society, under the conductorship of Mr Walter Jennings, on Monday evening next. This recently formed society has been highly successful and is much appreciated by large audiences on the occasion of each Frankston concert. *** FAVORED with beautiful weather, the annual picnic of the match workers, held at Frankston on Saturday last, was a great success. Between 2 and 3 hundred people journeyed down by train, arriving at Frankston at about eleven o’clock. The picnic was held in the park, where a programme of sports was carried through in the afternoon. *** WE note that last week Sir John Madden secured top price at the Melbourne market for his culled sheep, which were sent from his Frankston property by his manager Mr G. Bloxain. In past years Sir John considered himself fortunate if he was able to rear his sheep

to escape the depredations of wandering dogs, but we are pleased this annoyance now seems a thing of the past. *** THE memorial stone of the new chancel of the Mt Eliza Church of England will be laid by Mrs Sumner on Saturday next March 15th at 3pm. An open air fete will afterwards be held on the grounds. The fete will be opened by Lady Madden, and speeches will be given by Sir John Madden, Hon. A. Downward, and Mr James Grice. Refreshment, jumble, sweet, produce and other stalls will be presided over by the ladies and a pleasant day is anticipated. *** WE have been asked to state that the result of the American tea lately organised by Mrs C Maxwell, in aid of the Vicarage fund of St. Paul’s, Frankston, is as follows: The total receipts were £30 5s, total expenses £3 10s 6d, and the profit £26 14s 6d has been handed to Mr T Robinson, hon. treasurer of St. Paul’s Church. *** THE Eight Hour Committee announces its 57th Annual Art Union, in which 100 prizes of the total value of £1000 will be distributed. The first prize is valued at £500, the second £100, and the third £50. The support accorded the undertaking last year was so generous that the Committee was enabled to donate a very substantial sum to the Hospitals and Public Charities, to which the proceeds are devoted. It will be the 57th celebration of the establishment of the system which enjoins ‘Eight hours’ labor, eight hours’ recreation, and eight hours’ rest.’ The committee has already made complete arrangements in connection with the Fete, which will be

held at the Exhibition Buildings, Monday 21st April. A splendid programme of sports and amusements has been arranged for Eight Hours Day, which has been declared a Public and Bank Holiday throughout the State. Numerous special attractions will be provided for adults and children, the latter being particularly well catered for in the shape of races for boys and girls of all ages, skipping contests and other suitable events, and, in addition, thousands of toys, skipping ropes, and bags of lollies will be giren away free. The tickets are only one shilling each, and may be purchased in almost every town in the State, or direct from the Secretary, Mr John Hyman, at the Trades Hall, Carlton. It should be mentioned that every ticket purchased will have an equal chance in the Art Union, whether used for admission to the Fete on not. *** AN amatuer sports meeting will be held at the Naval Base on April 12th when a good programme of events will by gone through. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their monthly sale at Somerville on Wednesday, March 19th. *** A MEETING of those interested in the formation of a Racing Club in Frankston will be held in the Mechanics Hall on Tuesday, at 8pm sharp. *** WE are very pleased to hear that the catering for the Somerville show will be in the capable hands of Mr Bieri, of the Mornington cafe and patrons may rely upon getting a good luncheon. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Ses-

sions, held before Messrs Crawford, Clements, Bates, and Baxter, Js P. Viney Wells proceeded against G. W. Wells for using abusive language. After hearing lengthy evidence, the Bench dismissed the case, each party to pay their own costs. *** THE well-known Ayrshire breeders, Messrs Jones Bros, ‘Spring Farm’ Moorooduc, topped the market at the Tanti sale on Monday, realising £10 5s for a milker and £5 5s for a heifer. *** A CARD party and dance in aid of St McCartans church, Mornington, will be held in the Mechanics Hall, Mornington, on Easter Monday night, for the purpose of reducing the debt on the church. *** THE principal business places in Mornington will be closed all day on Wednesday – Somerville Show Day. *** MR James Sheridan, who took a fit on Saturday, did not regain consciousness, but succumbed at his residence, Mornington, on Monday. The remains were interred in the local cemetery. *** THE Emu Plains entries close on Monday next, March 10th. The racing track at Emu Plaint has been shortened from 9 furlongs to 7 furlongs. THE Frankston owned horse and pony, Milloo and Almond Bush, were successful in winning a race each at the Woolamai races last Wednesday, Mr Wilcox winning the Trial Stakes with Milloo and Mr C McKenzie the 13.2 Novelty Pony Race. Both started at a nice price in the betting.

*** A FRIENDLY game of tennis took place between teams representing Flinders and Red Hill on the Red Hill Court on Saturday, lst inst. The teams consisted of two ladies and four gentlemen and after an exciting match of fourteen sets, Flinders won by three games. Afternoon tea was provided by the ladies of the home team, and a very enjoyable afternoon was spent, the weather being favorable and the court in very good playing condition, considering the dry weather we have had lately. *** MESSRS Daw and McCallum, of Mornington, have sold their 600 acre farm at Moorooduc to Messrs Saunders and Martin, of Mornington, and the price was £4 10s per acre. *** THE Railway Standing Committee visited the Mornington Peninsula last week in connection with the proposed railway line through the Peninsula to Red Hill and Flinders. They were conveyed in one of Mr F. Doherty’s drags to Boneo where they toured the country, and then they toured the country through the centre of the Peninsula, from Red Hill to Bittern, and finally inspected the country around Stony Point. *** BUSH fires were very destructive in the Bittern district on Tuesday of last week. The properties of Messers Myers, White, Buckley, Oswin and Hitchen were swept by a fire, fanned by a strong north wind. Mr Myers suffered the most loss, losing a couple of miles of fencing.

D& ENTERTAINMENT ʔʦLȫɏ

The orchestra: life’s ultimate utensil By Stuart McCullough WE’VE all seen the adverts – jarring visuals and startling music combined with a voice-over that’s as close to hysteria as is possible without actually exploding. Easy to clean! Removes unwanted stains! (As though there’s any other kind.) Turns a sandwich into a banquet! The problem with these commercials is that when the product is ultimately unveiled, it’s impossible to be anything but underwhelmed. Usually, the device is little more than a plastic lump with a metal attachment, resembling the results of an appendectomy if performed on a washing machine. Plastic surgical offcuts are seldom much use. There’s only one thing that can truly do everything. When most people think of an orchestra, they either think of an uptight bunch of classical musicians existing in the rarefied world of classical music or, possibly, the words “Electric Light”. But an orchestra is so much more than just a 100-person cover band churning out the greatest hits of Beethoven and Mahler. Better than anything, orchestras set the mood. Forget candles or incense; if you really want to control the emotional temperature, music is the way to go. And when it comes to the heavy artillery, nothing packs as much punch as an orchestra. That’s why almost

every film you’ve ever seen relies on an orchestra to pull emotional strings. Let me be the first to say I love the Oscars. They’re cheesy and, to borrow from David Niven, succeed in squeezing two hours of entertainment into four hours. But more than set the mood, the Oscars let an orchestra display its versatility. Besides giving the occasion a sense of gravitas, the orchestra is an indispensible tool for getting people to shut up. Often, an actor, actress or, more horrifyingly, one of the guys from the special effects team will win an award and mistake it as an invitation to thank everyone they’ve ever met by name or, worse still, attempt to tell their life story. As the entire view-

ing audience starts to turn rigid with fear, the orchestra cuts in and brings proceedings to a merciful end. There should be more of it. Who among us hasn’t wished for an orchestra to cut off someone mid-sentence? Last week I was at a conference. It included a panel discussion moderated by a man who, perhaps thinking he had just won the award for best sound editing, took it as an opportunity to tell his life story and not allow the panel members to get a word in edgewise. Even when it was pointed out that he had used up all the allotted time and the next session was now delayed, he continued. It is difficult to convey how awful it was and I began to lament that light-

ning strikes are almost unheard of indoors as I wished for any calamity that would shut this turkey up. If only there had been an orchestra on hand. But more than just the ultimate silencer, there’s so much more a fully functioning orchestra can do. For years, local councils have used classical music to deter young people from hanging around train stations and shopping malls. To be fair, such locations are logical places for young people to lurk, particularly if they want to catch a train or buy something. But imagine how much more effective such programs would be if, instead of a compact disc, an entire symphony orchestra was squeezed in between platform two and the kiosk? Rather than drive young people away, it would give them a chance to properly appreciate the awesome mindblowing power of classical music. Local hoodlums could develop a passion for Rachmaninov. That said, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is more likely to encourage anti-social behaviour than curb it, having nearly caused a riot when it premiered in 1913. For myself, although I’ve been in lots of bands, I was only ever in one orchestra and, even then, for a very brief time. In high school, I studied percussion. Inspired either by Tito Puente or, possibly, Sheila E, I turned up for two les-

sons before my teacher decided it was time for me to join the school orchestra. Right from the outset, I could tell I was different from the other 70 members of the group. For starters, the others were able to play their instruments with a degree of proficiency. To make things worse, the other members of the orchestra had practised their parts; something I considered unnecessary. As the music started, everyone else paid a great deal of attention to their sheet music. In contrast, I decided to improvise. And while I hoped that my contribution would be lost in the cacophony, this was unlikely given that I was playing the drums. Indeed, as I flailed like a Muppet, it became obvious that I was playing as though I was in a different band, if not performing a different piece of music. The conductor was aghast and stopped the performance solely for the purpose of asking me what it was I was doing. As 140 eyes focused on me, it was clear that no answer I could provide would be good enough. In an ideal world, I would have picked up my sticks, made a short concession speech and left the room as the remaining members of the orchestra gave me a suitable musical send off. Sadly, it was not to be. I simply had to take it, with humiliation as my only accompaniment. www.stuartmccullough.com

Baxter, POB, Sharks and Dogs in semis PROVINCIAL By IT Gully BAXTER will tackle Peninsula Old Boys while Sorrento will tackle Mornington in MPCA Provincial semi-finals this weekend. While Baxter and the Old Boys will head into the knockout final coming off wins, the Doggies and Sharks will need to turn around their last round form in the semi-final clash after losing their final home and away matches. The teams have met once this season. The reigning premiers met POB in the first game after Christmas, a oneday match at Baxter Park. On that occasion, POB won the toss, sent Baxter in to bat and restricted the home side to 8/140 in its allocated 40 overs. Daniel Warwick top-scored for Baxter with 64, while Adam Jones and Jon Forrest did the damage with the ball with 3/20 and 3/36 respectively. Unfortunately for the Old Boys, its batsmen couldn’t back up the bowlers and were rolled for 136 in the final over.

Glenn Prendergast led from the front with 50, while Dylan O’Malley was next best with 12. Sam Wolsgrove did the damage with the ball for Baxter with 3/27, while Dale Irving claimed 2/22. Sorrento and Mornington went headto-head at David MacFarlan Reserve just a month ago in round nine. Sorrento batted first and amassed 220 from 74.3 overs, Liam O’Connor top-scoring with 74, Leigh Poholke getting 25 and Rob Dunball 32. A J King at the end put on a more than handy 19. Matt Foon did most of the damage for the Doggies with 5/48 from 18 overs, while Glenn Wood claimed 2/63. In reply, the Doggies had to dig deep but scored 8/225 from its 75 overs. At one stage Mornington was 5/133. Ben Clements top-scored with 57, Luke Popov hit 47 and 15-year-old Ryan McDonald burst onto the MPCA scene with 30. Andrew King claimed 5/84 from 31 overs for the Sharks. All four sides are evenly matched. Luck and producing something special on the day will be the only difference

between them. Mornington is the new kid on the block in terms of finals experience, sitting in the cricketing wilderness in recent seasons. The other three teams are seasoned campaigners. Baxter needs its openers to get it away to a good start, with Dale Irving and Daniel Warwick obvious keys, along with Adrian Mack and Sam Wolsgrove. For POB, Dylan O’Malley, Jon Forrest, Adam Jones and Glenn Prendergast need to be at their best. Jedd Flack, Nick Jewell, Anthony Blackwell and A J King are the keys for the Sharks. The Doggies will rely on Rob Hearn and Ben Clements, along with Matt Foon and Luke Popov. The Doggies look the most potent, together with the Sharks. POB and Baxter have an even spread – the match will be a typical grind. In the final game of the season, Baxter beat Sorrento in the final over of the day. Sorrento batted first and made 146 from 40 overs, Blackwell getting 44 and Mark Dunball 26. Marc Uccello claimed 5/32 with the ball for Baxter. Baxter was cruising

chasing the Sorrento total until the middle order collapsed and it lost 4/28. It was then 9/142, five runs from victory. Irving saved the day with 47, Darren Uccello opened with 23 and Marc Uccello rounded off a great day with 23 batting at 10. Mt Eliza got the chocolates against Long Island. The Islanders batted first and scored 8/136, Justin Bridgeman top-scoring with 71 and Jason Bedford getting 41. In reply, Justin Grant ensured the Mounties got home, scoring 78. Heatherhill batted first against Mornington and scored an impressive 8/203 from 40 overs, Matty Meagher getting 66, Matt Bishop 39 and Steve O’Donnell 38. Glenn Wood claimed 3/71 for the Dogs, while Matt Foon and Jack Heseltine picked up two wickets each. In reply, the Dogs’ batsmen were bowled out 50 runs short. Foon topscored with 41 and Luke Harper hit 30 Daniel Woods did the job for Heatherhill with 3/18, while Meagher took 2/14. POB scored 5/137 in its 40 overs against Mt Martha before bowling

out the home side for 75 in 33.2 overs. Rye finished its season on a high with a win against Moorooduc. Corey Harris top-scored for the Demons in its total of 7/220, while Rhys Wynne was next best with 40. In reply, Moorooduc was restricted to 9/173, Wynne taking 5/38 from 10 overs. Controversy surrounds the Crib Point v Ballam Park match, although the result will have no impact on the final four, or Ballam Park’s pending relegation to District ranks. Crib Point tried everything to get an outright win against Ballam Park but fell short. The Knights won the toss and sent the Magpies in to bat. The Pies piled on 7/154 in 40 overs, Ricky Thompson again top-scoring with 35 and Brad Davidson getting 29. The Pies then rolled the Knights for 93 in 26.3 overs, Luke Herrington getting 4/31. Crib Point then sent Ballam Park back into bat but the Knights scored the required runs, finishing on 8/65 in 13 overs.

Baden Powell knocks out Parkers DISTRICT By IT Gully BADEN Powell will play Langwarrin in one of the MPCA District semifinals this weekend after it knocked Delacombe Park out of the race. In the other semi-final, Carrum play Somerville after they finished in second and third position on the ladder. There were plenty of scenarios that were possible coming into the final round with many teams in contention to make the finals, but the major interest was the result of the Baden Powell versus Delacombe Park match. Played at the home of Delacombe Park, the home side was hot favourite to win. It plays its ground well and is blessed with matchwinners. Its recent form has been the most consistent it has been for most of the season. There is no question that on its day, Delacombe Park was the most potent

team in the competition and the other four teams will be happy it will not be part of finals action. Baden Powell had to take the match up to the home side. The team batted first and scored a more than competitive 4/197 from 40 overs. It appeared to be just under par on the small Delacombe Park ground. In reply, the Braves’ bowlers stepped up to the crease. Nathan Rice snared four of the first five wickets, including Chris Glendinning, Nick Christides, Chris Brittain and Jon Guthrie. At one stage, the Parkers were 5/48. Ben Brittain top-scored with 39 and Shane Deal scored 22 to help the Parkers to 138. Hastings needed everything to go right for it to play finals. Unfortunately, against the Pines on Saturday, absolutely nothing went to plan. It batted first and was bowled out for 91, Scott Phillips top-scoring with 25. Ricky Ramsdale claimed four wickets for the Piners.

In reply, the Blues toiled hard to get Pines six down before the team passed the score with 14 overs to spare. Brett Remy top-scored with 37. Phillips claimed 5/25. Flinders finished the season on a high, knocking over Carrum, which finished second on the ladder. Flinders restricted the Lions to 7/149 from its 40 overs, Lou Gillies claiming 3/22. Timmy Clarke then belted an unbeaten 93 to help the Sharks to 6/152 with 10 balls to spare. Langwarrin was given something to chase against Frankston YCW, which batted first and scored 5/197. Skipper Mark Cooper has hit some form in recent matches and scored 64 while Jake Prosser belted 75, which included five fours and five sixes. The minor premiers got there with five overs to spare. Boneo finished the season on a high, getting the points against Main Ridge. Both looked capable of playing

finals at times during the season but neither could maintain enough consistency to be challengers. Boneo batted first and scored 9/205, Alex Petrovic top-scored with 79 from 67 balls (14 fours and one six) and Matty Rogers belting 43 from 48 deliveries (three fours and two sixes). Cam Williams then claimed 3/57 to help Boneo restrict the Ridge to 8/199. Gareth Wyatt scored 44, Jason Albress 40 and Brendan Rossborough 38. Somerville warmed up for its final quite nicely, beating Seaford four wickets down and with five overs to spare. The Eagles kept Seaford to 8/157 (Damien Lawrence top-scored with 47) before scoring 4/159 in a dominant performance.

Finals preview Carrum and Somerville met in the first two-day game of the season in October last year. Carrum limped to 152 in 74 overs, thanks largely to a

solo performance from Dean Polson, who scored 82. Craig Foster with 23 was the only other Lion to score more than 10. Aaron Kaddatz was the pick of the Somerville bowlers with 4/28, while Russell Wilkes and Sam Delaney claimed two wickets each. In reply, the Eagles team was cruising at 2/72, before crashing to be all out for 124. Ben Delaney topscored with 48. Keith Burdett was still getting into the swing of cricket again. Langwarrin met Baden Powell in round four at Lloyd Park. On that occasion, the Braves squad won the toss and batted and was dismissed for 108 in 63 overs. Andy Johnson claimed 4/30 for the Kangas, while Mal Coutts and Dwayne Doig each collected two wickets. Sam Mullavey top-scored with 19 for the Braves. In reply, Langwarrin scored 222 in 69.4 overs. Johnson scored 49, David Ross 39 and Simon McEvoy 31.

Seaford into finals as Tyabb goes down SUB DISTRICT By IT Gully TYABB has missed out on MPCA Sub-district finals after going down to Red Hill in a must-win game. Its percentage wasn’t good enough to compete with six of the top sides and in the end proved to be its downfall. Seaford Tigers was the beneficiary, sneaking into fourth place without playing a match. The Tigers had the bye and collected 12 points. Its percentage was good before the match. Rosebud limped into the finals and its poor form after Christmas was highlighted by its draw with cellar

dwellers Carrum Downs on Saturday. Balnarring stormed into the finals with an emphatic victory over Pearcedale. Balnarring finished on top of the table and will play the Tigers in the semi-final this weekend. In the other semi-final, Rosebud will tackle Red Hill in an all-southern peninsula match. Pearcedale had to beat Balnarring to get a place in the finals. It lost the toss and was given the new ball but could not restrict the minor premiers. Balnarring was on fire with the bat and scored 6/207, Michael Griese top-scoring with 53, Brenton Taylor opening with 52 and Luke Chapple,

Tim Jessup and Mark Walles all getting runs. The Panthers’ batsmen were then restricted to 8/159 off 40 overs. Kaine Smith top-scored with 53 while Brad Trotter scored 35. Brad Arnold, Chapple and Taylor all claimed two wickets each for Balnarring. Red Hill batted first against Tyabb and smacked 5/216. Simon Dart scored an unbeaten 84, while Riley Shaw (37) and Owen McKillip (36) made good contributions. The Hillmen bowlers then did the job, bowling out the Yabbies in the second-last over. Luke Toy claimed 3/52 and Nick

Wood and Dart picked up two wickets. Luke Rus has had a sensational season for the Yabbies and top-scored again on Saturday with 50, while Nick Taranto compiled 43.

Finals preview

Balnarring and Seaford Tigers met in round 10 in what proved to be a one-sided match. The Tigers batted first and were rolled for just 88 in the 36th over. Brad Arnold was dominant for the visitors with 6/38, while Mitch Kleinig snared 3/21. Balnarring wasn’t great with the bat and was bowled out for 147 after being 3/90 at one stage. Taylor top-scored with 32 and Chris Murphy scored 29.

Corey Hand claimed 4/54 for the Tigers, and Dave James and Gavin Gardiner-Smith each picked up two wickets. Rosebud and Red Hill met in the final game before Christmas in round six. The Buds batted first and were well held to 158 from 74.1 overs. It was 3/21 before Leigh Parslow (30), Peter Doughty (22), Brian Doughty (20) and Scott Millar (22) resurrected the innings. Rosebud then tore through the Red Hill batsmen, dismissing them for just 63. Jason Nagel and Scott Millar bowled 18 overs each and picked up 5/33 and 5/26 respectively.

Hastings under-13s final down to the wire HASTINGS U13s team travelled to Flinders to compete in the U13s Subdistrict grand final on Sunday. Flinders won the toss and sent Hastings in to bat and the visitors were quickly in a spot of bother at 3/9 after only six overs. This bought Ryan McNamara and Ben Paarlberg together and they set about rebuilding the innings with a solid 45-run partnership before McNamara retired on 30. Hastings was 3/54 after 20 overs. Shelby Lothian-Burdett joined Paarlberg and they pushed the score to 114 before Shelby had to retire on 30. Paarlberg was dismissed in the next over for a solid 22 after he came to the crease in the first over of the match. The tail had a bit of a hit in the final overs as Hastings finished with 7/133 off 40 overs. Hastings soon had Flinders in trouble at 2/6 in the fourth over. The next pair dug in and rode their luck thanks to a couple of missed chances with both players retiring on 30, with the score at 2/90 in the 29th over. The Hastings bowlers battled hard and a brilliant catch from Cooper Dehaas suddenly changed the complexion of the game. All of a sudden it was on a knife edge at 8/124 with three overs to go. But with the retired batsman coming back in, Flinders was able to sneak over the line with four balls to spare, finishing with 9/135 and the premiership. The best of the Hastings bowlers were Corbin Overton, who took 2/10 off six overs, Pat Wilson 2/16,

Lothian-Burdett 3/13, Paarlberg 1/10 and Jackson Coles 1/10. Firsts v Pines: In a must-win game for both teams, Hastings batted first and made a mess of its innings as it was rolled for 91 with only three players getting double figures. The Pines team batted and nearly committed the same mistake as it went from 2/72 to 6/78 in the space of five overs thanks to an inspired spell from Scott Phillips who took 5/25 off

10 overs. This was a disappointing end to the season but to only miss out on finals by a game and a half was a great effort from a young side. Seconds v Pines: The Pines team batted first and started in a flurry as it raced to 1/111 before a couple of late wickets from Dylan Ryan pegged it back. Pines made 4/176 off 40 overs. Ryan took 2/39 off 10 overs, Liam Bradshaw 1/45 and Jake Ryan 1/41.

The Hastings innings began poorly, with the score 3/29 after 10 overs before Jason Slocombe 59 and Morgan Darrer 39 put on an 80-run partnership but both were dismissed within one run of each other and the score was 5/110 after 30 overs. J Ryan (19) and Bradshaw (22) then provided an entertaining 40-run partnership but again both fell in quick succession and the score was 7/152.

The tail fell quickly as Hastings was dismissed for 157. Thirds v Balnarring: Hastings was sent in to bat and started well with Pat Foy (26) and Greg Bradshaw (23) taking the score to 48. A couple of wickets fell quickly and Hastings was 3/57 in the 16th over. From then on players got starts but, as in previous weeks, no one went on with it as Hastings was bowled out for only 152. Nick Guest made 25, Matt Sawosz 18, Glenn Janzs 16 and Jaysen Bradshaw 16. Balnarring’s innings began well only because of some missed chances by Hastings players, as both openers rode there luck taking the score to 145 before finally a wicket fell. In the end Balnarring won comprehensively, finishing with 3/162. Sawosz was the best of the bowlers taking 2/45 off 10 overs. Next week Hastings plays Balnarring in the semi-final. Under-11s v Mt Martha: Mt Martha batted scoring 6/77 off 20 overs. Kayde Seymour took 1/6 and Pat Wilson 3/0. Hastings replied with 2/90 with Wilson making 15ret, Max Bradshaw 8ret, Devlin Webb 7ret and Lachie Robertson 7.

Peninsula’s Jonathan Munz in the money BIG-SPENDING owner Jonathan Munz had a thoroughly deserved return on his investment when Ferlax won the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Munz has put a lot of money into racing but has had only limited success. His enthusiasm was fired in the early days when he enjoyed feature race victories with the classy Show No Emotion, who won such races as the Ascot Vale Stakes, Angus Brut and A J Moir Stakes as well as a third behind General Nediym in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes. Other top-liners such as Above Deck, Molotov, Purple Groove, Rekindled Interest, Sharkbite and Gunnamatta – a winner of three consecutive Mornington Cups – have carried his white and red stripes and encouraged him to go in deeper. This led to him developing the Pinecliff training facility on Sunnyside Rd in Mt Eliza. In more recent times he has had Jim Conlan as his private trainer and this is paying dividends. Since winning the 2011 Group 2 Dato’tan Stakes under Conlan’s care, Rekindled Interest went on to finish third behind Pinker Pinker in the Cox Plate. Unfortunately Rekindled Interest failed to recapture that form this season but Ferlax’s performance in

the Guineas will have heartened Munz and Conlan. A winner of his three previous races, Ferlax went into the race a relative outsider but was brilliantly ridden by Stephen Baster. He was quickly into his stride and settled in third place on the rails before securing a run inside the pacemaker around the 300-metre mark. He went on to score in authoritative fashion from the promising filly You’re So Good with Sheer Talent third. The win has left Munz and Conlan with a dilemma of which feature race to tackle in the coming weeks. A logical progression would be Randwick Guineas (1600m) on Saturday week and then the Rosehill Guineas (2000m) on 30 March. The alternative program would be to keep the son of Pentire fresh for the All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on 27 April and the $1 million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on 8 June. “I think we have a very good, very exciting horse,” Conlan said of Ferlax. “He is quite immature still and we don’t want to overtax him at this stage of his career as there are a lot of good races ahead of him. “He could even be a Cox Plate horse in the spring.” *** IMPORTED galloper Green Moon is poised to notch another major victory for leading owner Lloyd Williams when he runs in the $1 million Australian Cup at Flemington on

Mt Eliza winner: Ferlax with Stephen Baster on board takes the prestigious Australian Guineas at Flemington.

Saturday. At his only appearance since winning last year’s Melbourne Cup, Green Moon finished a pleasing third behind boom three-year-old All Too Hard in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on 23 February. This effort will have primed him for his Australian Cup outing and he will appreciate the extra 600 metres as well racing on the spacious Flemington circuit. Interestingly, Green Moon won the Blamey Stakes (1600m) on the day last year and the ruling Melbourne Cup favourite Puissance De Lune is to resume in the event. The Blamey Stakes was Green Moon’s only start in the autumn and that is the plan with Puissance De Lune, a promising stayer. The entire, who is trained at Ballarat by Darren Weir, created a huge impression when bolting away with the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2500m) on the last day of the Melbourne Cup

carnival. After the event, three-time Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Glen Boss predicted Puissance De Lune could win the 2013 renewal. *** WITH Black Caviar remaining on the sidelines, her trainer Peter Moody will be relying on Moment of Change in the $1 million Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday. The lightly raced four-year-old is a Group 1 winner and resumed with an encouraging second behind Black Caviar in the Lightning Stakes (1000m) on 16 February. This led to Moment of Change being elevated to favouritism for the Newmarket and while he is the horse to beat, a long-shot with legitimate claims is the Queenslander Spirit Of Boom. A Group 1 placed five-year-old, Spirit of Boom had an interrupted passage when resuming with a third to the speedy Mrs Onassis

in the Oakleigh Plate (1100m). He will be fitter for this outing, is very comfortable racing down the Flemington straight and is expected to be right in the finish. Others to take my eye as potential winners: Glows, Spartini, Sheila’s Star, Unchain My Heart, You’re So Good, Hvasstan, Bass Straight, Perturbo, Practiced, Dark Sun, Shilly Shally Miss, and Red Rain.
