We saw many spring hopefuls return to begin their preparations, but the track at Sandown was slow and there was a gale force wind making for tricky conditions. The horses drawn on the inside who were able to get cover from the northerly on the backstraight were at a distinct advantage from those racing wide. Three great rides from Damien Oliver to do just that from inside barriers gave him victories in the three main races of the day, most notably on the grey Le Zagaletta in the Group 2 Liston Stakes.
