I know a lot of people are time poor so here are some news snippets around the place.

*Some outstanding interviews this morning by Steve Hewlett on RadioTab (1008am).newspaper

*As many would know Tommy Berry has picked up the plum ride on REBEL DANE after connections wanted to lock a rider in and from all reports Glen Boss was leaning to SRIKANDI. He will ride that horse in the Stradbroke now. I am very surprised Boss has gone for the filly. I felt REBEL DANE was outstanding and to make the ground he did from about the 350m-50m was extremely good on a day it was nearly impossible to over the short trips.

*BUFFERING will head to the paddock and miss the Stradbroke. That will leave SPIRIT OF BOOM as the top weight with 58kg. For the Order of entry/Weights click on this link


*ARABIAN GOLD threw a shoe at work and was reported to have possibly stood on it afterwards. She did work and Brad Davidson who was at the track said everything seemed fine after the gallop but the next day is when we will obviously know how she has pulled up. Far from ideal about a $2 pop in a group 1.

*ROCK DIVA and SACERRE have worked well leading into the Oaks on Saturday. HUCKLEBUCK was another strong worker from all reports. Punters should not sell him short, it was said before the run that he will improve off that and look at the turnaround in a horse like Cape Kidnappers on the weekend when he was in the same boat.

*James McDonald will ride TELEPATHIC in the Derby.
