It was a second Caulfield group 1 for the Bin Suroor-Cosgrave combination in the Godolphin blue after Benbatl won the Caulfield Stakes last week.

"We won’t compete at world championships until November so we’ve got a fair bit of time up our sleeve to work it out, but until then we’ll keep working through the little technical things we can do without loading up the back too much. "I probably 34

It happened at the 1987 US Open. I was the chair umpire for the fourth-round stadium court match between John McEnroe and Slobodan Zivojinovic where I issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe.
