9 November 2018 6:19 AM Group 1 victory on Pierata the perfect way for Berry to thank Hickman

“I always thought he would suit this horse and it has worked out that he has been able to hook up with him at the right time. Hickman of course remembers the Berry boys as a pair.

9 November 2018 5:01 AM Rangers plotting plan to cool hot Coffey

“She is like Asia Taylor in being that smaller power forward who is a headache to match up on – it’s funny how the whole league seems to have gone to small-ball line-ups this season. “It does go in trends, last season everyone seemed to have a big centre.” Coffey leads the WNBL in rebounding with 11 per game but the Lightning also have some explosive 121

7 November 2018 7:32 AM Newnham hopes for a group 1 and a Ladies Day surprise

“You look at the Derby winner and he was very impressive at Flemington then disappointing at Caulfield before winning on Saturday,” Newnham said. “Hopefully she can do the same.” Back at Hawkesbury the Spring Provincial Series continues with its third heat where Bobbing will be looking for a hat-trick this time in. Trainer Bernie Kelly has decided to take a shot at the rich series 129

7 November 2018 5:17 AM Melbourne United back depth as Goulding misses Hawks clash

“You always want you best team on the floor but I love the way this group is competing without him at the moment and we have a lot of people stepping up," Vickerman said. Melbourne knew this stretch would be among the toughest of their season and while they have started it with two wins, Vickerman knows fortunes can change quickly, especially as Illawarra 123
