Lieder has had two runs in Darwin for his latest trainer, Murray Bridge based Michael Hickmott, for a fifth and a third and now sits at the top of the Darwin Cup market order at Ladbrokes.com.au at $4

The well-bred Street Cry gelding started his career with the powerful Godolphin stable under the care of trainer John O’Shea who was able to win a Wyong maiden with him before finding his way to the Eagle Farm stables of Steven O’Dea in Brisbane.

Hickmott produced Leider for a win at Murray Bridge before finishing sixth in an 1800m Handicap at Morphettville on May 13 followed by a ninth in an 1800m BenchMark 84 Handicap at Flemington on May 20.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do
    you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    with experience. Any help would be enormously
