Ninth Legion has been scratched from the Group 1 $400,000 Anthea Crawford Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday paving the way for Petrology to take his place in the field.

The Team Hawkes trained Ninth Legion will go around in the easier Group 2 $175,000 Leonay Plumbing Shannon Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill while first emergency Petrology gains a run in the Group 1 Handicap.

The inclusion of Petrology will give the Lindsay Park Team of David Hayes and Tom Dabernig three runners with Fast ‘N’ Rocking and Gregers already in the main field.

Team Hawkes won’t be without a runner with Leebaz to represent the stable in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Ninth Legion ran an honest race when a first up second to the Chris Waller trained Winx in the Group 2 $200,000 Theo Marks Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on September 12 and co-trainer Wayne Hawkes believes the six year old is well suited in the Shannon Stakes.

“He has a great form and there is no doubting his ability, but it just depends on which Ninth Legion turns up,’ Hawkes said.

“The Winx form is pretty fat form in Sydney at the moment.”

Leebaz might be at the long odds of $41 with Ladbrokes.com.au but Hawkes is expecting the Group 1 placegetter to be right in the thick of it at the end of the 1400m.

“Leebaz is great. He went too hard the other day at Flemington and fell in a hole but his work’s been great and I think he’ll run better than what people might expect on Saturday,” Hawkes told Racing.com’s Racing Ahead on RSN.

With noted front runner Charmed Harmony certain to put plenty of pace into the race, Hayes is confident that Petrology will be running on strongly at the finish.

“A hard run race, which is predicted, might suit him and he will be finishing off strongly,” Hayes said.

“His work this week has been as good as it’s been. Handicap conditions is preferred to weight for age.”

All of Hayes’ and Dabernig runners are at big odds with Fat ‘N’ Rocking at $21 while Gregers is at $26 and Petrology at $34.

Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3 Disposition, $6 Under The Louvre, $7 Stratum Star, $11 Lucky Hussler, Charmed Harmony, $13 Cosmic Endeavour, $15 Amicus, $16 Rich Enuff, $21 Strawberry Boy, Fast ‘N’ Rocking, $26 Amorino, Gregers, Yesterday’s Song, $31 Abidewithme, Bull Point, $34 Petrology, $41 Leebaz, Worthy Cause, Hopfgarten, $51 Moonovermanhattan, $201 We’re Gonna Rock.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a
    30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!

    that, so at this time me also commenting at this place.

  18. www.battle-group.com

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really one thing that I think I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complex and very vast for me. I am having a look forward in your subsequent put up, I will try to get the hold of it!

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears as if some of the text in your
    content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let
    me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Cheers

    First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thanks!

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Superb Blog!

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari.
    Outstanding Blog!
