For the once-a-year punters heading to Randwick on Tuesday, the Garry White-trained Dunatun may conjure memories of the similarly-named Melbourne Cup winner of couple of years ago, Dunaden.

He has been poulticed and connections are hopeful that this will just prove a minor irritant and not force him to miss the Melbourne Cup. Currently a $26 chance, his Newmarket-based handler was hoping that he would be able to go one better than his stablemate, crowd favourite Red Cadeaux, who finished second for the same owner/trainer connections in three 41

27 October 2018 10:28 AM Under fiercest pressure, Bowman finds his calm on Winx

Brash British TV host Matt Chapman has spent all week justifying his crack at the "moderate" standard of Winx's rivals in Australia, but pulls Bowman aside an hour before the big race to get him to autograph a couple of racebooks.

20 October 2018 8:52 AM Coolmore calling for new colt on the block

The drama started an hour before the Coongy Cup, when the Jarrod McLean-trained Trap For Fools was scratched by stewards, then it was matched on track and with protest postscript. A dead-heat between Mask Of Time and Best Of Days in a driving finish saw Kerrin McEvoy protest against his fellow winner claiming he had layed in on him in the final 100m. "They 51

19 October 2018 4:39 AM A-League expansion bidders Western Melbourne linked to Celtic star

Celtic are said to be keen on extending Brown's contract but the prospect of a late-career swansong - particularly at an ambitious new A-League franchise - could tempt him. The Western Melbourne Group are planning to fund and build a 15,000-seat football-specific stadium in Tarneit, an hour's drive west of the Melbourne CBD, if their expansion bid is approved 29
