The first of his three rides on the synthetic track is a three-year-old debutant from the Lindsay Park stable, and this is more than likely his best winning chance.

ETIKAAL goes around in Race 1, the bet365 SV 3YO Maiden Plate (1100m), and on what he’s shown so far, he’ll prove hard to beat.

The Lonhro gelding went around in a 900m barrier trial at Wangaratta in March where he missed the start hopelessly and settled a distant last before working home strongly under a hold to grab 2nd place.

He lined up in a Flemington jump-out in July and was given a very easy time, but they are yet to release the handbrake on this youngster and I get the feeling he may cruise through the grades and be a spring carnival player.

Lindsay Park does an outstanding job with their young horses and the stable has a great record on the synthetic surface at Geelong.

Barrier 9 of 10 won’t make things easy, but Etikaal is likely to settle near the rear and come with a sweeping run in the straight.


Oliver will also ride the Simon Morrish-trained CHOUXTING THE MOB in Race 4, and he looks an interesting runner stepping up to 1900m following a debut run over 1200m.

The opposition have exposed form and are open to little improvement, while Morrish’s galloper could improve out of sight here and is worth a punt. 


The last of Oliver’s rides is in Race 6 where he will try and steer INNOCENT LILY to victory from barrier 6.

She was an impressive winner on the Geelong synthetic two starts back and then contested a tough race at Sandown Hillside finishing seven lengths from the smart Eurack.

She can bounce back on the synthetic in what looks an easier race than her maiden.
