Below is the 2008 Yalumba Stakes Replay/Results:

I think the winner of the Group One 2008 Yalumba Stakes raced over 200m at Caulfield tomorrow, will come out of the top two Pompeii Ruler and Sirmione. The Cummings camp would love Sirmione to be hitting his Spring Carnival form of last year in this race. Good rider (Damien Oliver), draw is spot on, Sirmione is certainly one of the main chances with Pompeii ruler, who continues to be one of our most honest weight-for-age horses after his great runs in the Turnbull Stakes
Underwood Stakes.

Guillotine has gathered his supporters in recent times, but at this level I’m still not convinced that I should forgive him for all the heartbreak he dished out to punters as a younger horse. The Yalumba Stakes winner is normally a seasoned horse, and i just don’t think he is up to that yet. I’ve no doubt the Yalumba Stakes 2008 will be a great race!
