Little filly and needs to do everything right with weight but commands respect.

Extra distance is query and this is harder. MISS PIGGY BANK (R R Jolly) 3f By Secret Savings - Fawayez (13:1-2-4): Lost plate in transit when 3-1/4 len 6th (56.0) Honourable Kind 1800m M’ville 3yo Rst1 Mar 7 and then fourth to turn when len, lg nk 3rd (50.0) Blue Maggich, Currency Cugat 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21.

Further improved and has some claims. DAS MACHEN (M G Price) 3f By Flying Spur - Lili Marlene (4:3-0-0): Fresh for this. Ran on strongly for 1-1/2 len win (56.0) Norella, Inashot 1500m Sale F&M Hcp-68 dead trk Feb 20 and then charged away for 3 len win (54.5) Done And Dusted, Startreat 1500m Sandown-Lakeside F&M Hcp-82 dead trk Mar 4. Good type in strong stable. Warrants consideration in this harder race. CLIMATIC (D A Hayes) 3f By Fusaichi Pegasus - Monsoon Wedding (6:2-0-1): Began awkwardly when 2 len 6th (53.0) Pricked 1450m C’ham Nitschke Stakes Feb 21 and then faded from turn when 6-3/4 len 11th (54.5) Estee 1600m M’ville Adelaide Gneas Mar 9.

Well-bred filly in powerful stable and looks a likely improver. HYPOXICATION (D G Balfour) 3f By Fasliyev - Te Akau Sun (7:1-0-0):Ran on well to score 1-1/4 len win (53.0) Ticket To Vegas, Novahro 1300m Balaklava 3yo C1 Mar 1 but then rearward throughout when 5-1/2 len 10th (54.0) Rose Of Nirvana 1400m Oakbank 3yo Rst1 dead trk Mar 14.

This will test her. ROSE OF BARABBA (Ms R Day) 3f By Royal Academy - Prima Donna (3:0-1-1): Never a factor when a first-up 4-3/4 len 9th (53.0) Jaalippy 1200m M’ville 3yoF Hcp Mar 7 and then hung in and checked near 200m but recovered for 2-1/2 len, 3 len 3rd (54.5) Pachanga, Sivi Soko 1300m Balaklava 3yo Mdn Mar 18. This race boasts more depth. RACE 5 2500m SPARKS FLY (M C Kent) 3f By Flying Spur - Dual Spark (11:2-0-4): 4-1/4 len 5th (55.5) Gallica 1600m F’ton Kewney Stakes Mar 7 but then ran on strongly for 6-3/4 len 5th (56.0) Gallica 2005m M’ville Schweppes OaksMar 21.

The longer journey should be ideal for her. Top chance. MISS LILY ROSE (D T O’Brien) 3f By Red Ransom - Shannon Wood (7:1-2-1): Just one-paced home when 5-1/4 len 7th (55.5) Gallica 1600m F’ton Kewney Stakes Mar 7 and then always handy and rallied gamely in straight when 2-1/2 len, len 3rd (56.0) Gallica, Estee 2005m M’ville SchweppesOaksMar 21. Shows some staying potential. Rate highly.

This is harder but she’ll run the trip out better than some. Consider. ROCKIN RAPTURE (F W Meuring) 3f By Hawk Wing - Double O’Roc (14:1-1-3): Met interference near 1600m when 5-3/4 len 6th (53.0) Miss Maren 2005m M’ville Schweppes Stks Mar 9 and then tightened in transit when 9-3/4 len 11th (56.0) Gallica 2005m M’ville Schweppes Oaks Mar 21. Prefer her in something a bit weaker. MIDNIGHT WINE (D T O’Brien) 3f By Black Minnaloushe - Rapunzel (8:1-1-2): Kept grinding away for 1-3/4 len 6th (53.0) Port Vell 1600m Sandown-Hillside 3yo (82) Mar 11 and then somewhat disappointing but ran on when len, sht hd 3rd (54.0) Go My Girl, Empress Gold 2025m Cranbourne C1 dead trk Mar 22. In good hands and could be a genuine improver. Warrants consideration. ESPRESSO CAVALLO (P G Moody) 3f By Lonhro - Queen Of State (7:0-2-1): Still a maiden. Worked to line solidly when 2-1/2 len 4th (55.0) One More Carat 1600m Bendigo F&M Mdn Feb 27 and then did best work late again when 1-1/4 len 2nd (55.0) Opale De Feu 2000m Mornington 3yo Mdn heavy trk Mar 15.

SKY JOURNEY (D A Hayes) 3f By Jeune - Sky Sparkle (4:1-1-0): Began awkwardly, raced greenly and hung in but still scored 1-1/4 len win (54.0) Shenzen Frenzy, Regina De Jeune 2200m Balaklava Mdn Mar 1 and then tried hard when 1/2 hd 2nd (53.0) Rock ‘N’ Ready 2200m Balaklava (75) Mar 18. Has promise and in powerful stable. Keep her safe. EIGHT MILE (K M Sweeney) 3f By Octagonal - Dusty Roads Girl (7:1-0-0): Broke through with lg nk win (54.0) Exalted Blaze, Another Temptation 1700m Clare Mdn Mar 8 but then only battled to line for 2-3/4 len 6th (54.5) Sovereign Conquest 2206m Murray Bridge (62) Mar 25. This is a tougher assignment. QUID PRO QUO (J D Smith) 3f By Clangalang - Concluding (5:0-0-0): Never a factor when 7-3/4 len 8th (53.0) Honourable Kind 1800m M’ville 3yo Rst1 Mar 7 and then checked near 100m and tightened when 6-1/2 len 12th (53.0) Sovereign Conquest 2206m Murray Bridge (62) Mar 25. She’s entitled to another chance but preferred in something easier. BARONESS GOODLAND (J D Smith) 3f By Blevic - Castlemartin (8:0-0-0): Hit line gamely when 3-1/2 len 4th (54.0) Ari’sYacht 2050m Strathalbyn Mdn Mar 15 but then dropped right out when 9-1/2 len 14th (53.0) Sovereign Conquest 2206m Murray Bridge (62) Mar 25. Others make greater appeal. RACE 6 1800m EXCELLTASTIC (P G Moody) 3c By Exceed And Excel - Fantail (11:2-2-3): Tried hard but couldn’t bridge gap when len 2nd (55.5) Stokehouse 1800m C’field Autumn Classic Feb 28 and then kept grinding home for 2-3/4 len 4th (54.5) Grand Destiny 2000m F’ton Baden-Baden dead trk Mar 14. Looks well placed here. Hard to keep out. REPRISAL (D A Hayes) 3g By Galileo - Gambei (8:3-1-1): Cleared right out for 7-1/2 len win (57.0) Lara’s Glitter, Family Trust 2100m Hobart Hobart Gneas dead trk Jan 18 but then hung in when len 2nd (57.0) Betwixt 2200m Hobart Tas Derby dead trk Jan 31. A stayer of considerable promise and should shake the life out of this. TUSCANY VIEW (G L Lesnikowski) 3g By Tuscanos - Western Vision (16:2-1-1): 2-3/4 len 4th (56.5) Estee 1600m M’ville Adelaide GneasMar 9 and then did best work late when 2-1/4 len 4th (55.0) Blue Maggich 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21. A respectable eighth in Victoria Derby last spring. Rate highly here. HONOURABLE KIND (Lloyd Kennewell) 3g By Honours List - Some Kinda Quick (13:2- 2-2): Checked near turn when 6-1/2 len 6th (58.0) Cochon D’Or 2040m M Valley 3yo (68) Feb 20 and then sustained injury in transit but still scored 1-1/4 len win (57.0) Dubai Arrival, Monde Avion 1800m M’ville 3yo Rst1 Mar 7. Distance suits again. A genuine threat. BONDARCHUK (P Stokes) 3c By Soviet Star - South Carolina (8:1-1-3): Lost plate in transit when 3/4 len 2nd (55.0) Pricked 1450m C’ham Nitschke Stakes Feb 21 and then blocked for run before running on strongly for 1/2 len, 1-3/4 len 3rd (56.5) Estee, Hawks Bay 1600m M’ville Adelaide Gneas Mar 9. Gives every indication this longer trip will suit.Top chance. DARRANGE (Tom Dabernig) 3g By Grandera - Diamonds And Dust (11:1- 5-3): Ran on well for sht 1/2 hd, 1-1/4 len 3rd (58.0) Rose Of Nirvana, Cover Charge 1400m Oakbank 3yo Rst1 dead trk Mar 14 and then finished strongly again when 2-1/4 len 2nd (54.0) Fresh Tell 1606m Murray Bridge (75) Mar 25. A regular placegetter. Minor money looks best here. BLUE MAGGICH (B J Dunn) 3c By Sandtrap - Symbolise (8:1-2-0): Faded from 600m when 4 len 7th (56.5) Estee 1600m M’ville Adelaide Gneas Mar 9 but then led for home and held on resolutely for len win (53.0) Currency Cugat, Miss Piggy Bank 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21. This is harder and extra distance is a query. LOUKOUMI (Lloyd Kennewell) 3g By Grandera - Ettu Blu (7:2-0-0): Shied at crossing but still scored sht 1/2 hd win (53.0) Our Indian Rose, Rangeraja 2045m M’ville Rst2-Ly Jan 24 but then never a serious threat when 10-3/4 len 8th (58.0) Blue Maggich 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21. Solid staying type but looks disadvantaged by set-weight conditions. MONDE AVION (Jon O’Connor) 3g By Jetball - Soeur Bleu (9:1-1-1): Worked to line gamely for 1-1/4 len, 3/4 len 3rd (54.5) Honourable Kind, Dubai Arrival 1800m M’ville 3yo Rst1 Mar 7 but then faded from turn when 8 len 7th (53.0) Blue Maggich 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21. Looks tested. CURRENCY CUGAT (B C Mueller) 3g By King Cugat - Lady Woodrow (8:1-2-2): Ran on strongly for 2 len win (56.0) Bianco Nero, Champagne Sisters 1400m BalaklavaMdn Mar 1 but then slowly away and tightened in transit when len 2nd (53.0) Blue Maggich 1600m M’ville 3yo Hcp Mar 21. This will test him. MATEO (A W Noonan) 3c By Carnegie - Candid Smile (6:0-1-0): Just one-paced home when 1-1/4 len 4th (57.0) Big Col 1435m Geelong 3yo Mdn dead trk Feb 28 and then met interference at start and checked early when 1-1/4 len 2nd (53.5) Port Vell 1600m Sandown-Hillside 3yo (82) Mar 11. Not for our money. FAGER SON (Ryan Balfour) 3c By Blevic - Fager’s Charm (5:0-0-0): Failed to come on when 2-3/4 len 5th (56.0) The Dream Team 1400m Balaklava Mdn Mar 1 and then disappointed for a run when 8-1/2 len 7th (56.0) Champagne Sisters 1400m Balaklava Mdn Mar 18. This is much harder. RACE 7 1600m ANNENKOV (P G Moody) 7h By Danehill - Agathe (35:5-5-4): Took lead a fair way out before fading to 9-1/4 len last (59.0) Niconero 1600m C’field Futurity Stakes Feb 28 and then loomed up on turn but dropped out again when 7-1/2 len 11th (56.0) Largo Lad 1600m F’ton Blamey Stakes dead trk Mar 14. Generally prefers it longer but he’ll likely give some cheek. ROYAL IDA (M A O’Leary) 8g By Star Pyramul - Star Of Ida (46:15-5-7): Disappointed for a run when 4-1/2 len 10th (60.0) El Mandon 1400m C’field Open Hcp dead trk Feb 8 and then did best work late when 6 len 9th (59.0) Blahnik 1200m M’ville Manihi Classic Mar 28.
