OAKS STILL NOT OUT OF BETTY’S RANGE There’s some bigger things to think of at Albion Park on Saturday night, but for Canterbury trainers Tim Butt and Mark Jones there’s been no shortage of quality entertainment on their trip to the banana state.

ADDINGTON, Friday June 30 Race 10: MANINTHEMIRROR (1, Sam Ottley), mob. 2600m: “I was pretty pleased with him first up in a field that was stronger than this. Nice to see him in a rating band that suits him and his competitors.
