Weir has completely dominated the three day Warrnambool Cup Carnival and early on the third day had saddled up his twelfth winner when Craven Image with Brad Rawiller in the saddle took out race five, the 2000m BenchMark 64 Handicap.

High Church is the designated market mover at Ladbrokes.com.au and has firmed in from $3.20 to be the clear favourite at $2.80 for the Warrnambool Cup ahead of the John Sadler trained top weight Observational at $4.

High Church will jump from barrier ten in the twelve horse field with Damian Lane taking over the reins from Jye McNeil who was aboard the six year old’s last start for a fourth to Observational in the Group 3 $150,000 Le Pine Funerals Easter Cup (2000m) at Caulfield on April 15.

Craig Newitt will be the new rider on Observational, replacing the suspended Tom Saddler who was aboard the six year old for his last start win in the Easter Cup.

Newitt had been originally booked to ride the David Brideoake trained Self Sense in the Warrnambool Cup but the Street Sense gelding was sidelined with an injury leaving the top Melbourne jockey available when John Sadler offered him the mount on Observational.

“So I was left without a ride but then Johnny rang me and told me Tom had been suspended,” Newitt said.

“So it was a good pick-up for me.”

Also under double figure odds is the Matt Cumani trained Grey Lion at $6.50.

Grey Lion has drawn nicely at barrier five and will be ridden by Craig Williams and the French import will strip much fitter following his first up fifteenth in the Easter Cup.

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.|

    Hi there, I think your site could be having web browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, wonderful website!|

    You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I feel I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely large for me. I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the hold of it!|
