Melbourne’s Spring Carnival Jockeys, trainers and horses line up at the barrier for the LM chains

Another Liberal team has entered the field and announced their entry for the big event.

Prominent racehorse owner Nick Columb has declared he’ll be a starter in the race to be Melbourne lord mayor. Nick Columb’s stable includes the Melbourne City Councillor Fiona Snedden, daughter of Sir Billy Snedden, former Federal Liberal party leader in the 1970’s.

Unlike Robert Doyle’s Team the Columb/Snedden team has close ties to the Melbourne community. But as talent, skill and form mean little in show business and the race for Lord Mayor is more about smoke and mirrors then substance.

Whilst not a favourite it is still a team to watch and a serious contender for the long shot. Columb and Snedden should receive considerable backing from the conservative small business and resident community.
