WEDNESDAY MARCH 19 2014 SPORT 45 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Cassidys right for the Boy VETERAN jockey Jim Cassidy will be out to replicate the difference he has made to Dissident when he reunites with Strawberry Boy in the Newmarket Handicap at Newcastle today. Cassidys no-nonsense, standover approach to riding has been acclaimed for helping Dissident turn spring promise into an autumn Group One win in Saturdays Randwick Guineas. And Claire Cunningham, who looks after trainer Peter Moodys Randwick satellite stable, thinks Cassidy can also bring out the best in Strawberry Boy at Newcastle. I think Jimmy will suit Strawberry Boy as well, being the type of horse he is, Cunningham said. Were very, very happy to have him on board. Owned by John Singleton, Strawberry Boy made an immediate impression with Flemington and Caulfield wins last year after being switched to Moody from Gai Waterhouse. But he hasnt won in four starts since embracing the Melbourne spring and autumn carnivals. Moody will also send High Esteem to Newcastle, with Cunningham confident the four-year-old can rediscover the spark that delivered a placing in the Cameron Handicap over todays course. Jockey Tim Clark will continue his association with Almighty Charge in the Newmarket, certain the Gai Waterhouse-trained four-year-old brings the right form to the race. It took Ecuador all of the Rosehill straight to get past his stablemate when they clashed at Rosehill on March 1. With Ecuador being one of the favourites for the Doncaster that should hold my horse in good stead for Newcastle, Clark said. Im sure if Ecuador was lining up in this race he would be starting a pretty short-priced favourite. Almighty Charge has opened the $5.50 second favourite behind another stablemate, Rain Drum ($4). Rain Drum resumed at weight-forage when close-up behind Appearance in the Apollo Stakes. Million-dollar-earner Centennial Park drops 3kg on his third in the National Sprint at Canberra with trainer David Payne saying the eight-yearold is racing well enough to be a threat. He has dropped in the ratings and has a weight that makes him competitive, he said. He loves being in work and he loves racing.Strawberry Boy (left) giving the highly rated Boban a run for his money on Caulfield Cup Day last year Picture: MICAHEL KLEIN By WARWICK BARR HORSE RACING The advantage of print is that it captures buyers who dont even know theyre looking for a home exactly like yours. Buyers regularly tell me they absolutely have to have a three bedroom home plus study, pool and garden in a particular suburb, only to fall in love with a two bedroom townhouse three suburbs away. It really does happen! The internet is great for searching. But print is great for discovering. Capture every single buyer. Andrew Winter, Selling Houses Australia
