*Steve Hewlett interviewed Glyn Schofield today after a very nasty fall where a horse through him off and then collected him in the head knocking him out before then hitting the ground. Although he has many injuries and would be sore and out of the saddle for a while he did seem upbeat as usual and let’s hope he is back sooner rather than later.

*Lots of talk around the traps for PRESSING and JAZZ SONG, the Mick Price pair who worked yesterday in Brisbane. Glowing reports and for any who have seen PRESSINGs two victories you would know he is an exceptional talent. How does DOOMBEN play Saturday is the million dollar question? This horse has settled back his last two starts and rattled late. I have no doubt he couldn’t have won last week but this week may play better and 1350m will suit perfectly. I feel the biggest hurdle could well be LOOKS LIKE THE CAT from the Gollan yard, this bloke could be one of the stars of the carnival.

*Reports are ZOUSTAR has suffered an injury, will not race in the UK and will head to stud later in the year.barrier draw
