Godolphlin’s Australian retained jockey James McDonald made a “gut call’ in preferring Telperion as his ride for Saturday’s Skyline Stakes at Randwick.

He waited until trackwork on Tuesday but still has respect for Souchez, which could hand English hoop William Buick a Golden Slipper lead-up for the second consecutive year.

“If anything Souchez has been working better than Telperion,” McDonald said. “But I really like him and have from the start and that sways me to Telperion. There isn’t that much between them.”

McDonald admits to usually being guided by trainer John O’Shea about most of his decisions when it comes to rides but this one was his alone.

“I’m just hoping I made the right call,” he said.

Buick, who won the Pago Pago Stakes on Tarquin, has flown in for five rides, including Magic Hurricane in the Chipping Norton Stakes and It’s Somewhat in the Liverpool City Cup.

ZANBAGH PLANS

When John Thompson told Sandy Tait he was thinking of targeting Zanbagh at the Guy Walter Stakes back in December, there was a laugh of approval.

“He obviously had a lot of success with Guy, and was pleased to have a runner in his race,” Thompson said.

“We [were] talking at the end of that summer prep where we got her back winning and I was fairly happy with her and thought she was up to the better races. This is a starting point but to win it would be a great honour because of who it is named after.

“She is going as well as she was before winning first-up last time but she did strike a wet track back then. We are going to look at races like the Coolmore Classic and Queen Of The Turf with her this time in and I’m sure she is up to that grade.”

CAVANOUGH’S CONTINGENT

Albury trainer Brett Cavanough looks set to dominate the Country Championship heat at Wagga on Saturday with trio of runners “that have been aimed and targeted at this day”.

There would not be a better-placed horse in the country than Just A Bullet on the weekend, with Cavanough having able back-ups in Another Rush and Steakandbearnaise.

Just A Bullet has had five wins and 19 starts to just fall in under the qualification criteria.

His last start was a third in the Rubition Stakes at group 2 level behind Heatherley, one of the popular elects for the Oakleigh Plate, and Politeness, which has admirers in the Futurity.

Those are a long way from a set weights Class 5 at Wagga. “He looks well in with 59kg,” Cavanough said.

“I have always thought he would run a strong seven [furlongs, 1400m]. We were aware of the conditions and like the other two we have set him for this race a long way out.”

Arms Of An Angel the unknown factor in the Miracle Mile

The unknown factors going into Sunday’s Miracle Mile outweigh the proven form, setting up an exciting a couple of minutes at Menangle.

The known is that Beautide is a champion and Lennytheshark is the best horse in the country at the highest level  this season.

Have Faith In Me might be potential superstar after his 1.48.8 win in the Chariots Of Fire victory and is ready to match it with his older rivals.

But for trainer Shane Tritton the unknown is his friend. He has Arms Of An Angel, a flying mare with a will to win.

The given is she will lead from the pole, but what is she is actually capable of is the big question.

“No one knows how good she is, not even me,” Tritton said. “She is a fierce competitor and just wants to run and wants to beat every other horse around her.

“She doesn’t know what she is up against on Sunday. She will just go out and do her thing. How quick that will be, who knows?

“What we do know is that she should be a length in front at the top of the straight.”

Arms Of An Angel’s biggest test so far ended in defeat when third in Have Faith In Me’s Chariots Of Fire.

Glorious defeat, if that’s possible, with an excuse but a time to say she is very good.

The four-year-old mare  was expected to lead despite a wide draw but missed the start by at least a dozen metres. The bit became lodged over the noseband, making her hard to steer.

From there, driver Lauren Panella had little control but Arms Of An Angel’s competitive instincts took over and she ran around the 1.49 mark.

“Of course we were disappointed for something like to happen,” Tritton said. “She could have quite easily have dropped out and ran sixth or something like that.

“But she showed what we know that she is a competitor.

“She just wants to beat whatever is around her and because of that, she ran a quick mile after giving away a start.

“I have had a couple of Miracle Mile runners before which we knew were vulnerable at the level. I think she is good enough but she is still learning.

“All she wants to do is race, we have to work her first in the morning because if she sees other horse she want to chase it down.

“In time she will get better and be driven with a sit but now, we let her show her natural speed.”

Is talcum powder going to give you cancer?

Johnson & Johnson has maintained its talcum powder products are safe to use. Photo: suppliedJohnson & Johnson in $100m talcum powder payout
南京夜网

Please say it isn’t so. Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder – that soothing white talc probably hundreds of thousands of us have used for decades and on our babies too – causes cancer?

Members of the jury in the case of Alabama woman Jacqueline Fox obviously think so. They ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay Fox’s family $US72 million in actual and punitive damages after she died of ovarian cancer. It was reported that a pathologist found her ovaries were inflamed from talc which then turned into cancer. Aged 62, Fox had used Johnson & Johnson powder products for 35 years, applying them in her genital area. So should you stop using it?

If you are someone who wants to minimise or eliminate all possible risks of cancer from your life, the answer is yes. Because the highest authority available to us – the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer – classifies talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” when it’s used around the perineum – the nether region stretching from the vagina to the anus.

In other words, the international expert working group convened by the IARC to examine the evidence for a link between talcum powder and cancer has concluded that there possibly is one. That’s if we’re talking about the way body powder is most frequently applied, that is, by dusting around the vagina. Most commonly, women start using it around the age of 15, and for an unknown number like Fox it becomes a daily habit of a lifetime.

“On the one hand we can’t dismiss completely that the perineal use of talcum powder increases the risk of ovarian cancer,” said Professor Bernard Stewart, a world authority on environmental cancer risks who advises both the IARC and Cancer Council Australia.

“On the other hand all of the studies are not conclusive. Some studies showed an association and some did not,” he says. And of the ones that showed an association, some showed an adverse one: that the more you used, the lower the risk, and vice versa – “which is not what you would expect”.

So the evidence isn’t strong enough to warrant action by health authorities, such warnings against use or on labels, says Professor Stewart. So back to the question: what is a woman to do?

The professor says it’s “fair enough” to stop using talc: “The evidence is enough to justify anxiety in an individual woman, and if an individual woman wants to stop using talc in this way I have absolutely no criticism of that”.

But he also advises the evidence isn’t strong enough to justify any of us losing sleep over somehow putting ourselves at risk in the past. And he says a jury determination in a court case is “the last place one goes for objective medico-scientific assessment”.

While it is “understandable at a human level” that a jury might be outraged by the notion that someone might get cancer by the seemingly innocuous use of talcum powder, it “provides no scientific insight”. “Decades of science” back the safety of talc

Johnson & Johnson disputes the IARC’s conclusion. It said in a statement: “The recent US verdict goes against decades of sound science proving the safety of talc as a cosmetic ingredient in multiple products, and while we sympathise with the family of the plaintiff, we strongly disagree with the outcome.”

A Sydney-based spokesperson for the American multinational told Fairfax Media: “Johnson & Johnson relies on the greater body of evidence, and the greater body of evidence suggests there is really insufficient science to make that link.

“Do we believe that the product continues to be safe? Very much so.”

The NSW Cancer Council says on its website: “Further research is needed to determine whether and how talcum powder might increase the risk of ovarian cancer.”

(There’s a separate kind of naturally-occurring mineral talc that contains asbestos and definitely causes cancer. Asbestos may have been present in some body talcs before the mid 1970s, but the industry decided after a flurry of adverse publicity back then to market talc with no asbestos, the IARC said).

The IARC considered 20 studies to evaluate the risk of ovarian cancer from using body powder. It focused on eight studies it deemed “more informative” because they were population-based (that is, not focused on particular groups of people), of reasonable size, with acceptable participation rates and allowed control for unidentified factors which might confound the results.

Hunter woman victim of fraud and larceny slams judge’s verdict

COURT: Victim of crime Lisa Marks said she feels violated after a woman stole her wallet and used her bank cards to clock up several charges. A Hunter businesswoman has been left devastated after the woman who stole her identity and thousands of dollars from her bank account was allowed to walk free.
南京夜网

Small business owner Lisa Marks had her wallet stolen by a phony customer at her New Lambton clothing store Parker and Barrow.

Within an hour the offender had used her cards to make several charges using the paywave function at shops and cafes.

“It just gave me a sick feeling knowing someone was walking around using my cards,” Mrs Marks said.

“I contacted police and the bank straight away and cancelled my cards and I thought that was the end of it.”

But matters got worse when the offender used Mrs Mark’s driver’s licence to withdraw more than $5000 from her bank account.

Many of the stores and banks used by the offender had recorded CCTV footage of the woman, 30-year-old Ebonee Cupples, which was handed over to police.

On February 18 police picked up Cupples at East Maitland Bowling Club as she sat playing the pokies.

According to a police report tendered to the court, a search of Cupples vehicle found two bank cards belonging to Mrs Marks and two bags of the illicit drug ice in her handbag.

“When I found out she had been arrested I felt a bit of relief,” Mrs Marks said.

“I thought I could finally move on and not worry about where she was and what she was doing.”

Cupples appeared at Maitland Local Court on Friday February 19 on charges of larceny, fraud and possession of a prohibited drug.

She pleaded guilty to all charges and Magistrate Andrew Eckhold handed down a 12-month suspended sentence, which meant she got to walk out of the courtroom that day.

“What a weak sentence,” Mrs Marks said.

“To know that she got to walk out of that courtroom is just disgusting.

“They never recovered my licence, what’s to stop her from passing that on to someone else?

“Who knows what debt is going to pop up in the future under my name because of this.”

According to police facts Cupples was extremely well known to police and her criminal history dictated that she had been committing offences of this kind for many years.

“I am so disillusioned with the justice system,” Mrs Marks said.

“There is no incentive for hard working citizens to go to police and report crime if they just get to walk out of court with no repercussions for their actions.”
