Trainer Anthony Cummings has confirmed that Fontelina will make his long-awaited return to racing in the 2015 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Fontelina finished a close second behind Spirit Of Boom in the William Reid Stakes last year and he was set to contest the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m), but he twisted his ankle in the lead-up and was sent to the paddock prematurely.

The injury forced Fontelina to miss the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival and he was set to make his return to racing in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) at Royal Randwick on March 7, but he was scratched from the race after he was kicked by another horse the day before the race.

Cummings told Sky Racing that Fontelina had quickly recovered from the small cut that he suffered during the incident and he said that he was more than happy with the son of Testa Rossa heading into the 2015 William Reid Stakes this weekend.

“He will go to Friday night at the Valley,” Cummings said.

“I have been pleased with his last couple pieces of work.

“It was unfortunate that he didn’t get to run in the Canterbury, but he has gotten over the issue had that day and he goes there a very good chance.

“He missed the spring, but he is back now and I am pleased to see him back the track.”

Fontelina is yet to record a win at the highest level of racing, but he has been one of the most consistent sprinters in Australia over the past two years and is unlucky not to have a Group 1 victory on his racing resume.

The six-year-old was narrowly pipped by Rebel Dane in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1200m) during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival and Cummings believes that the talented gelding should arguably be defending his title in the William Reid Stakes after he was blocked for a run at a key time in the race last year.

“He was unlucky not to have won this race last year and in his next start he came to Sydney and went wrong,” Cummings said.

“He just got held up at the wrong time and he got nosed out.

“I thought that he had won on the line, but it wasn’t to be.”

Fontelina is currently available at 2015 William Reid Stakes odds of $17 with Ladbrokes, while Angelic Light ($5) is a clear favourite from Rebel Dane ($6), Peron ($8), Vain Queen ($8), Earthquake ($9), Famous Seamus ($9), Trust In A Gust ($9) and Under The Louvre ($11).

    まだお若いのに、義母さんでそんな御苦労をされているのですね。強くなりましょう。お義母さんの人生は変えることもできないし、沿うことも、理解することも無理なのです。 わたしも若いは、姑は想像できないくらいの苦労をしたのだから、と妥協の連続でした。夫もその兄弟、妹も苦労した義母のいうことは疑問を感じてもほぼ希望に沿っていました。 こちらは身内でないので、精神的にかなり追いつめられ、入院したり色々ありました。でもね、やっぱり普通の感覚で生活するのがまともなのです。御主人にはお義母さんの言ってることは耳に入れないでと上の方のおっしゃるようにはっきり言いましょう。 おかしいのはおかしいのです。わたしは、打たれ強くないので人には言えないのですが、お子さんのため、御自分のため、ご家族のため、ふりまわされないで。こちらがやさしいと、相手も強く出ます。はっきり、御主人に、舅さんに自分はもう我慢できない、気がおかしくなりそうだ、このままだと続けられないとはっきりいいましょう。そして、お義母さんのことは、ご主人と舅さんにまかせて、無視するしかないのでしょう。、うまい答えが出来ずにごめんなさいね。でも病気になったら自分が一番ばかを見ますよ。お互いに強くなりましょう。

    ¡Hola inspiradora Isela!Una verdad grande es la que nos recuerdas. Toda travesia, todo proyecto, toda meta, empieza con un primer paso, pero ese paso pesa. Y pesa por la inercia de años de estar en un punto muerto, donde nos sentimos cómodos y nos damos mil y una razones para seguir como vamos. Podemos culpar al gobierno, podemos culpar al trabajo, podemos culpar a la familia, nuestra pareja… pero el culpable esta solo a hechar una mirada al espejo.¡Abrazos de su seguidor de la peninsula de la Baja California!

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.|

    VangeIV,We don't live in Never Never Land but in the real world. What can be is an interesting speculation but what really matters is what is. And right now I don't see the hype as reflecting reality. This is the perspective I simply don't understand. 40 years from now is not Never-Never land for me; I will live to see it, most likely. And if it's 50, I've still got a pretty good shot. How can a libertarian, a follower of a philosophy that has been partially tried but never has really succeeded in all of history, take the perspective that if it doesn't exist today, it's not real?

    Actually in 2018 which is four years into the main implementation the GAO states the government will actually start saving money. Massachusetts cost of healthcare has increased significantly less than the national average and has a better outcome ratio. Odds are nationally it should follow. Then of course there is less bad debt write off that will come from more insured people. Less bad debt should result in more money for hospitals etc to spend on equipment and personnel.

Eles tem a maior frota de submarinos do mundo, se não me engano, e navios de tamanho pequeno e médio, como os torpedeiros, ao contrário da Coréia do Sul que parece investir em alvos maiores e mais vulneráveis, como corvetas e navios maiores.Não sei quanto a operacionalidade, mas quanto à doutrina, o Norte parece sair na frente.Enquanto isso o Brasil gasta milhões no A-12 e esquece os submarinos.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    · J’ai arrêté de boire du café le matin alors qu’il m’était indispensable. Je l’ai remplacé par du thé, mais j’apprécie toujours un petit café en fin de repas le midi. Un café clôture parfaitement un bon repas entre amis ou en famille. Dans l’idéal, il a un rayon de soleil qui vient glisser sur la table. Il fait une douce chaleur qui est amplifiée par ces quelques gorgées de café. Et je suis bien.
