18 November 2018 6:59 AM Tensions rise over hearing into ball-tampering bans

This could have been worked into a meeting urged in the Longstaff report to occur within 30 days of the public lodging of the report, in a bid to begin a healing process between the two bodies after an ugly two years featuring a pay war and friction over the culture of the sport. However, that meeting won't be held for another week, with the CA board 42

12 November 2018 7:31 AM Deadline looming: CA, players association set for rare meeting

Smith and Warner have been suspended for a year for their involvement in the ball-scuffing fiasco of March but one suggestion has been to allow them to at least return to Sheffield Shield cricket from January 1. Bancroft was handed a nine-month ban, and can return on December 29. The trio, who have lost millions of dollars in earnings as a result of the scandal 20

11 November 2018 3:47 AM FFA board candidates to face grilling

It has invited all 12 candidates (including several who were on the former Lowy-led board) to attend, but only half will be there in person to take questions from the public at a function that will be hosted by Fox Sports commentator Simon Hill. Those who will face the inquisition are Joseph Carozzi, a senior Sydney-based financial services professional 26

10 November 2018 7:02 AM Poetic justice as Santa Ana Lane sinks rivals

It was indeed poetic justice for the owners and the stable that Santa Ana Lane got the firmer surface down the straight that he had been denied in the monsoonal conditions in Sydney when he went north to contest The Everest. Like many in that race he simply could not act on the heavy ground in which the VRC Sprint Classic favourite Redzel had excelled 24

5 November 2018 7:51 AM Gosden looks to finish golden year by breaking Melbourne Cup jinx

Trainer John Gosden has a remarkable year - winning the Ascot Gold Cup, the Arc De Triomphe and Breeders' Cup turf - but his greatest achievement could come at Flemington on Tuesday if Muntahaa can break the English jinx in the Melbourne Cup. Cracksman, Enable and Roaring Lion will fight out the horse of the year title in Europe, and all carried the Gosden 15

1 November 2018 5:04 AM Morrison hopes Marmelo stays under the Cup radar

Last year he gave the horse that eye-catching prep run at Caulfield after he won the Prix Kergorlay at Deauville in France, while this year his campaign has been centred on the Melbourne Cup and nothing else. The son of top-class 2400-metre horse Duke of Marmalade (a multiple group 1 winner for Coolmore) has been maintaining fitness at Werribee and will go into the Cup on Tuesday 15

1 November 2018 4:45 AM Peever set to resign as chairman of Cricket Australia

David Peever is expected to resign on Thursday afternoon as chairman of Cricket Australia. The CA board is meeting shortly and sources say Peever will tender his resignation. The chairman has been under intense pressure since the release on Monday of The Ethics Centre's damning review of the culture at CA. The report painted a picture of an "arrogant 12

31 October 2018 7:00 AM Peever re-election process 'astonishing'

"I don't think it is possible to have a strong view that board members should be re-signed or sacked or whatever. What I do think is completely astonishing is that decisions were made about the composition of the board for the next three years before any of the people who were voting had a chance to read the assessments that were made. From a governance 11

29 October 2018 9:01 AM Saeed and Moore battle in Melbourne

The racing world is shrinking and no one knows that more than Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor and Coolmore’s No.1 jockey Ryan Moore. Bin Suroor saddled up Benbatl to finish a game second to champion Winx in the Cox Plate on Saturday, but he could not hang around to celebrate or even take much stock of his horse’s gallant performance. He was on the plane 16

20 October 2018 7:26 AM Bin Suroor gets the tactics right as Best Solution takes Caulfield Cup

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. Best Solution might have got into the Caulfield Cup a touch light given he had won two German group 1s at his past two starts after winning a group 2 at the Newmarket July meeting. He lumped 57.5kg to victory 14
