18 November 2018 8:48 AM Appoint Percy goes back-to-back at Canberra to put injuries behind him

It was his second straight victory after saluting at the same track on Melbourne Cup Day almost two weeks ago. "It's been a long road with this horse. He's had a lot of injuries and it looked like being the best horse I ever trained, but unfortunately he had a few injuries and it's taken a lot of work to get him back to the races," Pepper said. "It's 68

18 November 2018 6:08 AM 'We'll hold our ground': Aussies won't be combative Kohli's welcome mat

Rivals have noticed a marked change in Australia's conduct but Paine's side has not met an adversary capable of stirring the pot like Kohli. Australia will not want to let Kohli walk over them like a welcome mat but know their every move will come under the microscope. Kohli claimed last week that he no longer needed to engage in an argument to get into the contest 67

16 November 2018 6:47 AM Smith confident of staging another late Open charge

Cameron Smith, the early Australian Open favourite, will look to take full advantage of the fresh greens early Saturday and stage another late charge at the Australian Open. Just as he motored home in the Open two years ago to force a play-off with Jordan Spieth - not to mention belted a blazing final-day 66 at the US Masters earlier this year - Smith 62

10 November 2018 5:52 AM Kenedna comes out of retirement to land Weir a treble

Darren Weir was poking around his farm in Maldon when he spotted a horse with a good action who looked fit and well.

"She was a great three-year-old who was unlucky not to win a group one," Weir said. His mind slipped 39

10 November 2018 5:02 AM Hayes can only rue what might have been in Cup as Jaameh delivers

Hayes and his crew lodged a protest at the time - ironic given that Jaameh was owned by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, the brother of Godolphin's creater Sheikh Mohammed - in the desperate hope that they might get the result reversed, so keen were they to ensure Jaameh could qualify for the Melbourne Cup. That attempt failed so in a last gasp bid to get the son of Iffraaj 40

9 November 2018 9:00 AM 'Is this spam?' the dream email that sent Matildas teenager to Madrid

After reading the offer to become the first Australian to play for Atletico Madrid, she flipped the screen over to stare at the iconic celebration of Griezmann, just as she'd done for the last two years with Atletico star printed on her phone cover. Pinching herself, Chidiac had just become a flag-bearer for Australian women's football within one of the biggest 22

Third place went to yet another English-trained horse in A Prince of Arran, from the Newmarket yard of young handler Charlie Fellowes. He was partnered by expatriat New Zealander Michael Walker, who has called Melbourne 25

4 November 2018 8:21 AM Sam Kerr stuns Canberra United with eight minutes of madness

"She's just outstanding, she can create something from nothing, her runs... there's not much more I can say. "I don't think we were complacent at all. I said to the girls before the game we have to play for the full 90 because that's how dangerous Sam is. "When we didn't seal that fifth goal and missed an open goal they transitioned and scored within 25

Scottish trained eight-year-old Nakeeta claimed the final spot in Tuesday's Melbourne Cup field after master trainer Ed Dunlop scratched Red Verdon because of a bruised heel and Gai Waterhouse's Thinkin' Big failed in VRC Derby, finishing 12th after starting favourite. The barrier draw is set for 6.30pm with Japanese stayer Sole Impact set to just miss out unless 24

30 October 2018 8:00 AM JP de Marigny to take Wanderers reins after Babbel's ban

Oriol Riera admits Western Sydney players will be worse off for the absence of coach Markus Babbel from the sidelines for this weekend’s tricky away trip to Wellington but has backed assistant Jean-Paul de Marigny to step into the breach. Babbel will serve a mandatory one-match ban for abusing the fourth official following a controversial VAR decision 16
