Nolen Suspension Causes 2012 Emirates Stakes Day Jockey Changes

Top jockey Luke Nolen will not ride on 2012 Emirates Stakes Day after accepting a 12-meeting ban for his ride on Lights Of Heaven in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.

The stable jockey for Peter Moody elected not to appeal the suspension received after being found guilty of causing interference to Kelinni and Mourayan.

Nolen’s major rides on Saturday were in the 2012 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) with Ready To Rip and the 2012 Queen Elizabeth Stakes aboard Vatuvei.

Ready To Rip will now be ridden by Dwayne Dunn while Vlad Duric will assume the ride aboard progressive stayer Vatuvei.

Former Queensland sprinter Ready To Rip was in consistent form prior to the Group 1 Manikato Stakes late last month where he was beaten five lengths in ninth place.

Prior to that he had recorded four consecutive top three finishes including a close second to Buffering at weight-for-age level in the Group 2 Moir Stakes (1200m).

Vatuvei is being groomed as a potential 2013 cups contender and showed his staying ability in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) which he won by 1 ½ lengths from Reuben Percival.

He is rated a $9.50 chance in a strong field that includes Bendigo Cup winner Puissance De Lune ($3), Herbert Power Stakes winner Shahwardi ($5.50), Bart Cummings-trained entire Dare To Dream ($7) and the Godolphin-owned Lost In The Moment ($9).

Other rides Nolen has been replaced on include Il Cavallo in the Maribyrnong Plate (Ben Melham), Turnitup in the Antler Luggage Handicap (Corey Brown), Lampedusa in the Hilton Hotel Stakes (Ben Melham), Rock Hit in the Matriarch Stakes (Vlad Duric) and Mr Make Believe in the Emirates Airline Handicap (Corey Brown).
