It seems like a denial of natural justice.

John starts next week as Graeme's assistant. I don't think I could get anyone better.

A year old and older, then we can test the dog and know exactly what we're getting - the temperament of the dog, athletic ability, size, everything. When you try to raise a puppy, we don't really know what we have until he's about a year old.

As well, he has to ride tomorrow (at Caulfield).

We don't need any publicity.

Retreat hell! We just got here!

He just hasn't had any chance to prepare.

I rang the people at Racing Victoria on Monday and pointed this out to them.

They had decided that Dan needed to be sharpened up I think.
