Veranillo is marked as a $41 outsider for the Golden Slipper at Ladbrokes.com.au but trainer John O’Shea is looking for plenty of improvement with the blinkers on after the colt finished third behind Dunnison and Invader in the Group 2 $300,000 UNSW Todman Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on March 4.

O’Shea said that Veranillo has worn the blinkers in track work and has adapted to the new race day gear well.

“Blinkers go on for the first time and they seemed to have the right effect on him in his work at Osborne Park,” O’Shea said.

“He’s drawn a nice gate for his style of racing. There’s a lot of speed inside and there’s a lot of speed outside.

“I think he’s going to be in a nice cruising position about five lengths off the speed and hopefully he can get to the right part of the track.”

“Veranillo, his whole purpose this preparation was to run well in the Golden Slipper, and I am really happy with the improvement that he has made coming from the Todman into the Slipper and the addition of the blinkers.”

“He is affective in the ground. You are going to need a very fit tough seasoned horse which he fits into.”

“We are optimistic he will give a good account of himself.”

Veranillo kicked off his Golden Slipper campaign with a first up win in the Listed $125,000 Hinchinbrook Plate (1100m) at Randwick on February 4 followed by second to She Will Reign in the Group 2 $250,000 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on February 18 prior to his last start third in the Todman Stakes.

Brenton Avdulla will again be on board Veranillo who has drawn barrier eleven in the original draw.

O’Shea will also saddle up Trekking, a $34 chance in the Golden Slipper, and will be ridden by English jockey William Buick.

Queensland filly Houtzen sits at the top of the Golden Slipper market order at $4.40 with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of the Blue Diamond Stakes winner Catchy at $5.50 and She Will Reign at $6.

    Before you start a weight lifting program for your arms, define the goals that you wish to achieve. If you are looking to bulk up, concentrate on heavy weights and intense workouts. Sculpting your arms can be done by doing more reps with lighter weights.

    If I were bin Laden, I would be feeling my oats a bit too, seeing as how the most powerful nation with the most guns on earth can’t seem to figure out where he is (or just doesn’t care). I don’t know why every new announcement by bin Laden isn’t preceded by: “And contrary to Bush’s pledge, he’s still on the loose…”

    It should be 4-door, 4-cyls, not sporty. I would prefer Honda or Toyota… First time drivers usually have much more expensive car insurance, and it depends from car. You should compare insurance rates while choosing the car – for example here – carinsurance.yoll.net

    And of course your BBC would never do that would they? The fact you jumped in on an old thread means you people are distinctly nervous about the real Jihad and what his real job consisted of. The truth will of course come out in the end, and if that happens you will of course not be crawling from underneath your rock to comment. It just confirms our belief that the BBC monitors B-BBC.   2 likes

    “In terms of numbers I think the majority of commenters actually support Lord’s position. But they seem to be the ones not permanently employed in academia. The ones who appear to be writing from the position of tenure seem to say: “suck it up.””This just sounds to me like Group A = people who rationalize their reasons for leaving. Group B = people who rationalize their reasons for staying. Not surprising that each would be speaking from the positions of, well, people who are in their positions.

    This was a great story, with a great plot.A demon who kills an abusive grandmother in a horrific display of blood and gore… turns out to be simply answering the prayers of a girl who can’t stand her life in a household where she is mentally and physically abused.A guardian angel, demon, or otherwise, it seems that this entity had sympathy for this young girl, or maybe he just has a taste for darkened shriveled, souls. Either way, the grandmother deserved it, the girl needed it to happen, and the entity liked the taste. It’s a win-win.VA:F [1.9.21_1169](from 7 votes)

    Laura Wood publishes another vacuous comment purporting to solve the Jewish Question. You see, some Jews like to denigrate the old religion of the Torah. From this fact, it then follows, as night follows day, that Jews are not motivated by hatred of White Christianity. They're simply motivated by love of liberal progressivism. So we can just ignore Jews as Jews and focus on liberalism.

    Well that’s interesting! I’ve never heard of these and, in all candor, they look much more inviting than they sounded a day or two ago. Looks almost like a bread sausage tho I suppose it’s closer to polenta allowed to set up. Could you grill it like polenta? In any case, thanks so much for introducing this interesting new — to me — idea.
