Oliver was aboard Vega Magic when he resumed for a tough first up win with 60.5kg on his back in the Listed $120,000 Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield last Saturday which prompted bookies at Ladbrokes.com.au to installed him as the $5.50 favourite for the first Group 1 of the new racing season.

Oliver was hoping that his fourteen meeting careless riding suspension that he was handed down at last Wednesday’s Sandown meeting would be reduced so he could partner The Lindsay Park trained Vega Magic in the Memsie Stakes but today’s appeal was dismissed.

The three times Melbourne Cup winning jockey was able to ride at Caulfield last Saturday before beginning his suspension that will terminate at midnight on September 2, after the running of the Memsie Stakes.

Sky Sports Radio this afternoon tweeted that Craig Williams would now take the mount on the former West Australian trained Sprinter.

‘Jockey Craig Williams will now ride Vega Magic in Saturday weeks million dollar Memsie at Caulfield after no success at appeal for Olly,” Sky Sports Radio tweeted.

Ironically it was Williams aboard Esperance who was on the receiving end of most of the interference caused when Oliver allowed his mount Redcore to shift in at the 900m in the Sheamus Mills Bloodstock Handicap (1200m) at Sandown last Wednesday.

Williams has already had success on Vega Magic and rode him to victory at his first start for the Lindsay Park Team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig when he won the Group 1 $1m Darley Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville during the 2017 Adelaide Autumn Carnival.

David Hayes not only thinks that Vega Magic is a great chance of winning his second Group 1 trophy in the Memsie Stake, he is also eyeing off a slot in the $10m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14 for the five year old chestnut.

“He has won over 1400 metres and he will go for the Memsie,” David Hayes said.

“He will be freshened up and hopefully somebody wants him for The Everest.

“I am thinking that he will run huge in the Memsie and he will get snapped up.

“We will dangle carrots everywhere.”

The Darren Weir trained multiple Group 1 winner Black Heart Bart and Kris Lees’ Le Romain are also high up in the Memsie Stakes market order at $6 each just ahead of Australian Guineas winner Hey Doc at $7 and Yankee Rose at $8.

Early market order for the Memsie Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au: $5.50 Vega Magic $6 Black Heart Bart, Le Romain, $7 Hey Doc, $8 Yankee Rose, $9 Brave Smash, $11 I Am A Star, $13 Humidor, $15 Foxplay, Happy Clapper, Star Exhibit, $17 Ability, Lucky Hussler, Tosen Stardom, Ugo Foscolo, $21 He’s Our Rokkii, $26 or better the rest.

    There is a real justification for an alternative to the present right wing media monopoly. It is a fact that the largest part of the world’s news provision is operated by right wing capitalists. Their purpose is to further the cause of capitalism and retain the world’s gap between rich and those in need. Left Insider provides left wing news from reputable news sites like Left Futures and Left Foot Forward etc. We all own the right to fully exploit our own qualities and we all have the obligation to help others achieve theirs.
