Chris Waller took out three of the Group 1 events for three-year-olds during the 2015 Spring Racing Carnival and Japonisme, Press Statement and Vanbrugh are all set to continue the build-up to their autumn campaigns.

Japonisme was beaten by Exosphere in both the Group 2 Run To The Rose Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on August 29 and the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on October 3, but he turned-the-tables on his rival with an impressive performance in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on October 31.

Press Statement stamped himself as the best three-year-old miler in Australia when he took out both the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 26 and the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 10, while Vanbrugh beat a lacklustre field to take out the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick on the same day.

The Group 1 winning trio are joined in the barrier trial by stablemates Counterattack, Hursley and Metallic Crown.

Exosphere may have been beaten in the Coolmore Stud Stakes, but his performances in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) and Roman Consul Stakes showed that he is right up there with the best three-year-olds in the country.

The Lonhro colt is set to return to the races in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on February 21 before he presses on to the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at the same venue three weeks later.

Godolphin also have Victoria Derby runner-up Etymology in the nominations for the barrier trial.

The final Group 1 winner set to contest the star-studded barrier trial is Team Snowden-trained Pride Of Dubai, who scored an impressive win in a barrier trial over 838 metres at Royal Randwick on January 12.

Pride Of Dubai has not been seen at the races since he took out the Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) during The Championships last year, but his barrier trial performance showed that he is almost ready for his racing return.

The second barrier trial of the morning is also packed full of quality, highlighted by Chris Waller-trained Delectation.

Delectation has not been seen at the races since his upset win in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington on the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival last year and he is joined by stablemate Catkins, while the likes of Craftiness, Dublin Lass, Leebaz and Our Boy Malachi are set to contest the trial.

  15. kratom for sale

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A little-known plant-based
    substance often sold as an herbal supplement to address chronic pain is raising alarm bells in states concerned that it could
    be as addictive as heroin.

    The controversy around kratom — a plant originating in Southeast Asia — has led Alabama to become the sixth U.S.
    state to ban it. Kratom is now a Schedule 1 drug in Alabama, the same classification as heroin and ecstasy.

    Wisconsin, Vermont, Tennessee, Indiana and Arkansas have also banned the botanical supplement, and more states are considering the same course.
    The federal government, too, has worries about

    The Drug Enforcement Administration designates kratom as a “drug of concern” — meaning that, although it is still technically legal,
    it poses risks if abused. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration lists kratom as an herbal supplement, which means it
    is not regulated as vigorously as pharmaceuticals before
    it reaches consumers. The FDA warns of a range of side effects from vomiting to
    aggression and hallucinations.

    Yet the drug’s popularity is indisputable, and its advocates staunchly insist kratom is nothing more than a natural analgesic that can be safely used to alleviate pain, combat fatigue and reduce depression and anxiety.

    “Naturally occurring Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that’s more akin to tea and coffee than any other substances,” the American Kratom Association says on its website.

    Kelly Devine, an Alabama native who founded the group Kratom United, says some of the
    kratom products sold may be mixed with unhealthy additives but the
    plant itself is a natural pain reliever.

    “We’re not seeking drugs, we’re seeking relief,” Devine said.

    Kratom grows naturally in Thailand, Malaysia, and elsewhere in Southeast Asia and was traditionally chewed or boiled into tea by workers in that
    region of the world to boost productivity because kratom at
    low doses can act like a stimulant.

    At higher doses, kratom yields a sedative and pain relief effect.
    Experts say two properties in the plant —mitragynine and hydromitragynine— bind to the same brain receptors as classic
    opioids like hydrocodone, though kratom is less potent.

    Oliver Grundmann, clinical associate professor of medicinal chemistry at the
    University of Florida School of Pharmacy, said
    opioid addicts could get relief from kratom, since the same brain receptors are
    affected. In a 2013 University of Mississippi study, researchers found that mitragynine
    “blocked all withdrawal symptoms” in methadone-addicted mice who
    were fed kratom leaves.

    Researchers have seen heroin users cycle to kratom, but Grundmann says addicts
    are known to begin reusing heroin as the body develops a tolerance to kratom.

    Shortly after the law making kratom sales and possession illegal
    in Alabama took effect May 10, products like brightly colored “Krazy Kratom”
    bottles were being pulled from the shelves of retailers — gas stations
    and head shops in particular.

    Barry Matson, chairman of the Alabama Drug Abuse Task Force, doesn’t want
    to stand in the way of anybody getting medication that helps them but doesn’t think solutions can be
    found in a gas station product.

    “We don’t need this on shelves if it’s powerful enough to replace (heroin) for some people.”

    Though Matson said there are cases in Alabama
    of deaths and injuries involving kratom, Grundmann says he’s seen no evidence to
    indicate kratom was the “sole contributing drug” to an overdose death in the U.S.
    However, research is so limited that experts aren’t sure how other compounds in the plant interact with other substances.

    “We’re always trying to catch up behind the latest trends,” Grundmann said.

    “There are so many different drugs, so many different ways to abuse drugs that we don’t initially think about.”
