Not convinced 2000m is his go but hasn’t been far away last couple and adept all conditions. POMPEII RULER (M G Price) 6g By Genuine - West With Night (20:7-4-2): Grand WFA performer who went down narrowly as fav when nk 2nd (59.0) Douro Valley 2000m C’field Yalumba Stakes dead trk Oct 11. First-up battled to line for 4-1/4 len 8th (59.0) Vision And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4. Sound first-up effort in the George Ryder. Up to more suit- able trip now and won three from 4 second-up. SARRERA (M D Moroney) 8g By Quest For Fame - Zamsong (36:8-5-3): Superior wet tracker who won this race last year at big odds on a dead track. Upsides leader but gradually weakened to finish 5-1/4 len 7th (59.5) Hissing Sid 1600m C’field Open Hcp Mar 21 then subject of some big bets (50-1 into 9-1) but never a factor 6-1/2 len 12th (59.0) Vision And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4. Will need to improve sharple on his George Ryder offering when had conditions to suit. DOURO VALLEY (D T O’Brien) 7g By Encosta De Lago - Opaque (52:8-8-7): Class stayer whose last win was the Yalumba Stakes over this trip on a dead track. Sent to paddock after 4-3/4 len 9th (57.0) Doctor Dino 2400m Sha Tin Hong Kong Vase Dec 14. First-up made steady ground for 3-1/2 len 6th (61.0) Skiddaw Peak 1400m C’field Anniv. Vase dead trk Mar 28. Carried the grandstand first-up when trimmed margin late. Second up stats read well but he won’t want it too wet. LARGO LAD (D A Hayes) 4g By Encosta De Lago - Lady Marion (20:5-2-0): Giant galloper who loves wet tracks and should relish the rise in journey now after eyecatching 2-3/4 len 6th (59.0) Vision And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4 and brave 1-1/4 len 4th (51.5) Vision And Power 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Game effort when ranged up to threaten in the Doncaster. Each-way appeal. ROAD TO ROCK (A J Cummings) 4h By Encosta De Lago - Trewornan (23:4- 6-0): Wasn’t far off them when 1-3/4 len 5th (59.0) Theseo 2000m R’hill Ranvet Stakes dead trk Mar 21 then up in distance for even 5-1/4 len 7th (58.5) Fiumicino 2400m R’hill The B M W heavy trk April 4. Didn’t see the 2400m out in the BWM. Previous effort contained merit when 5th to Theseo over this journey. ZARITA (P T Hyland) 4m By Pentire - Gin Player (21:7-2-2): Came home strongly when 1-1/2 len 4th (57.0) Niconero 2000m F’ton Australian Cup Mar 7 then wasn’t happy in the going when 14-1/4 len 9th (56.5) Fiumicino 2400m R’hill The B M W heavy trk April 4. Bogged down badly in the BMW. 4th in the Cox Plate and Australia Cup this season but that was on dry tracks. Monitor conditions. MISS MAREN (M G Price) 4m By Stravinsky - Deebee Lady (17:6-1-2): In form Melbourne mare shooting for her fifth successive win but this repres- nets a big hike in grade after 2-1/4 len win (54.5) Youthful High, Costa De Bima 2000m C’field M Hcp dead trk Mar 28 and 1-1/4 len win (53.0) Raf- faello, Light Vision 2000m C’field Easter Cup dead trk April 11. In another league her but won her last three over this journey down south and does seem to appreciate a bit of jar out. Can’t take lightly. WHOBEGOTYOU (M A Kavanagh) 3g By Street Cry - Temple Of Peace (12:5-4-1): Star 3yo who wasn’t at all suited when 4-1/4 len 9th (56.5) Vi- sion And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4 then rearward as usual and caught behind a wall of horses when charged home for 3/4 len, 1/2 nk 3rd (54.5) Vision And Power, Black Piranha 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Aruguably a good thing beaten in the Doncaster when caught behind a wall of horses. Won the AAMI vase only other run this jour- ney and he deserves a big win next to his name this campaign. ROMAN EMPEROR (J B Cummings) 3c By Montjeu - Gussy Godiva (8:2-1- 0): Australian Derby winner aiming to become the first 3yo since Intergaze (1997) to win this race. In the box seat when 2-1/4 len 5th (56.5) Metal Bender 2000m R’hill Rosehill Gneas Mar 28 then gave the master his 5th AJC Derby win when raced on the speed and kept on for sht nk win (56.5) Harris Tweed, Predatory Pricer 2400m R’wick A J C Derby dead trk April 11. First foray into WFA company now and also down in distance after his gutsy Derby win but still commands serious attention. METAL BENDER (J Denham) 3g By Danasinga - Jacqwin (8:5-1-0): Out- standing 3yo who produced an explosive charge along rail to win the Rand- wick G’neas then up to this trip and turned in another brilliant rails hugging effort when got up in foinal n posted 1/2 hd win (56.5) Sousa, Rock Kingdom 2000m R’hill Rosehill Gneas Mar 28. Wasn’t helped by the wide draw when 3 len 8th (56.5) Roman Emperor 2400m R’wick A J C Derby dead trk April 11. Once again the alley won’t help but he’s an undeniable talent and not out of his place in this line-up. SOUSA (Peter Snowden) 3c By Galileo - Liberty Song (11:3-1-0): Darley 3yo who looks a topline stayer in the making. Sent forward by Bowman in a muddling- run race and kept going only to be denied on line 1/2 hd 2nd (56.5) Metal Bender 2000m R’hill Rosehill Gneas Mar 28 then fav when prominent again but swamped on line 1/2 len 4th (56.5) Roman Emperor 2400m R’wick A J C Derby dead trk April 11. Kept on solidly in the Derby. Harder at WFA but perfectly drawn and looks a very good stayer in the making. PREDATORY PRICER (Paul Murray) 3c By Street Cry - Shady Stream (11:3- 1-2): Beaten favourite when 2-1/2 len 5th (56.0) Harris Tweed 2000m R’hill Tulloch Stakes heavy trk April 4. Overraced early then had a checkered run to line when sht nk, nose 3rd (56.5) Roman Emperor, Harris Tweed 2400m R’wick A J C Derby dead trk April 11. Talented but needs it dry to threaten at this level. SIR SLICK (G A Nicholson) 7g By Volksraad - Miss Opera (94:20-17-11): Veteran NZ galloper who has placed just once in 11 goes in Australia. Led and just grabbed in final bounds lg nk 2nd (59.0) Maco’reilly 2000m Awapuni Cup Mar 28 then just whacked away here last week when 5-1/4 len 17th (53.5) Vision And Power 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Wasn’t up to them in the Doncaster. Hard to enthuse. 6 Sydney Cup 1 s0484 MASTER O’REILLY, 19 (tw) 2 L1L64 NEWPORT, 5 (tw) 3 07771 FIUMICINO, 14 (tw) 4 06892 ICE CHARIOT, 17 (d) 5 03214 ISTA KAREEM, 6 (wn) 6 02211 DIVINE REBEL, 9 (tn) 7 61125 MR TIPSY, 16 (w) 8 34217 ENZEDEX EAGLE, 4 (w) 9 s9539 BRAVE LANCER, 2 (tw) 10 61L12 CASA DE CAMPO, 12 (wb) 11 53478 TWIN WING, 8 (w) 12 s5582 GLISTENING, 18 (w) 13 11423 COMMON OBJECTIVE, 15 (wbh) 14 s4345 LANG, 11 (w) 5 Queen Elizabeth Stks 3.10 Q1 17 51311 SPEED DUBAI, 7 (w) 18 31130 JOE BLOW, 10 (h) 19 40260 CARSKI DRUM, 13 (t) 15 69570 TANGALOOMA, 1 (w) 16 86866 DANDAAD, 3 (wh) EMERGENCIES 2000m $500,000 Group 1 WFA.

Untried at the trip but gives every indication he’ll handle it and trainer has won three of these. Lightweight hope. SPEED DUBAI (G H Walter) 4g By E Dubai - Papeete (16:4-3-4): In career best form. Left alone in front and showed a strong kick to score 1-3/4 len win (54.5) Grizz, Joe Blow 2200m W Farm (81) slow trk Mar 31. Odds on when accounted for a small field len win (55.0) Grizz, For Cruyff’s Sake 2400m W Farm (86) heavy trk April 15. Giant leap in grade after disposing of a four horse field in Warwick Farm midweek last outing. Still, he does look a very handy stayer in the making. JOE BLOW (J B Cummings) 4g By Sadler’s Wells - Strawberry Girl (9:2-0- 2): Dual winner on the Kensington track before 1-3/4 len, 1/2 len 3rd (58.0) Speed Dubai, Grizz 2200m W Farm (81) slow trk Mar 31 then in the market but refused to settle and vetted after disappointing 5-1/4 len 12th (52.0) Di- vine Rebel 2600m R’wick Chairman’s Hcp dead trk April 11. Pay to overlook his Chairman’s flop when refused to settle. Big race jockey takes over today and well worth another look on the limit. CARSKI DRUM (M Petrovic) 6g By King Ivor - All In Blue (48:7-7-3): Handy but lacked a closing bid 5 len 6th (51.5) Regal Celeb 1800m Gundagai Gund- agai Cup dead trk April 5. On quick back-up when 200-1 and safely held 5-3/4 len 13th (53.0) Divine Rebel 2600m R’wick Chairman’s Hcp dead trk April 11. Will go around long odds again if he gets a run here. 7 All Aged Sakes 4.20 Q3 1400m $400,000 Group 1 WFA. Apprentices cannot claim. ?

Forget latest effort when beaten by a freak sprinter. Won this race last year on a dead track. Can repeat. ALL SILENT (G M Begg) 5g By Belong To Me - Lisheenowen (15:6-0-1): Caught on a limb but kept on for 1-1/4 len 4th (59.0) Vision And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4 then well back and didn’t have any favours when beaten fav 3 len 10th (54.5) Vision And Power 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Back to 1400m and should play a major role. Likely favourite.

First run for 5-weeks wasn’t happy going the Sydney way when layed in under pressure in the wet 4-1/4 len 10th (59.0) Vision And Power 1500m R’hill George Ryder heavy trk April 4. Better for first try Sydney way. Drawn the rail and can easily improve. Both totes. MARASCO (F R Kersley) 6g By Scenic - Bluegrass Belle (32:14-6-2): Star WA galloper racing in top form. Resumd as odds on fav when luckless 1/2 len 2nd (59.0) Tarzi 1400m Ascot Hyperion Stakes Mar 21 then up quickly in distance and skinny odds when too strong scoring 3/4 len win (59.0) Tarzi, Star Encounter 1800m Ascot Strickland Stks April 4.

Came home down middle for 1-1/2 len 4th (57.5) Time Matters 1400m C’field T S Carlyon Cup Feb 21 then back to his favourite style of racing when closed intently for 2-3/4 len 5th (57.0) Scenic Blast 1200m F’ton Newmarket Hcp Mar 7. Since finished 5-1/2 len last Angel’s Breath 1100m C’bury barrier trial slow trk April 17. Best at 1200m but well drawn here and should get pace to suit. Each-way appeal. SOLO FLYER (A J Cummings) 4h By Belong To Me - Fly The Flag (19:4-3- 2): Won the Newcastle Newmarket in slick time then well supported in 1-1/4 len win (57.0) Marching, Chasm 1500m R’hill Ajax Stakes Mar 28. Seemed to have every chance last week when close-up in busy finish 1-3/4 len 9th (52.5) Vision And Power 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Major player back over this distance.

Ran a mighty race here first-up against a crack line-up of sprinters when 1-1/4 len 2nd (55.0) Nicconi 1100m R’wick The Galaxy dead trk April 11. Huge effort first-up behind Nicconi. Fitter and proven this track and journey. Danger. MASKED ASSASSIN (P G Moody) 4h By Danzero - Duk Duk (16:4-5-2): Ultra consistent 4yo who raced on pace and was just edged out sht hd 2nd (57.0) El Mandon 1200m C’field Open Hcp dead trk April 4 then on quick back- up when led and held off swooper to record nk win (54.0) Chasm, Falaise 1400m C’field Victoria Hcp dead trk April 11. Comes to Sydney in top form and should again be prominent from outset. ROYAL DISCRETION (Ms G Waterhouse) 4g By Royal Academy - Discretion (21:6-2-2): Second-up when handy on fence and kept on for nk, 1-1/4 len 3rd (59.0) All Silent, Forensics 1300m R’hill Canterbury Stks dead trk Mar 21 then fav when caught wide but battled on in the wet for 1-3/4 len 4th (57.0) Dao Dao 1400m R’hill Royal Parma heavy trk April 4. Tougher test here but looks to be rounding back to his best and winner only other start this t/d. Value. MR BARITONE (M D Moroney) 7g By Stravinsky - Tunisia (42:8-10-5): Weakened off a hard run to finish 5 len last (57.5) Lucky Secret 1200m M Valley Qlty Mar 27 then returned to Sydney and wasn’t really up to the task when just battled on for 3-3/4 len 6th (57.0) Dao Dao 1400m R’hill Royal Parma heavy trk April 4. Wet track helps but may just lack the class. FORENSICS (Peter Snowden) 4m By Flying Spur - Prove It (17:7-2-0): Classy mare but best on top of the ground. Weaved through field first-up to finish nk 2nd (57.0) All Silent 1300m R’hill Canterbury Stks dead trk Mar 21 then 3-1/2 len 5th (57.0) Neroli 1500m R’hill Qn. Of The Turf heavy trk April 4. Sound effort in unsuitable conditions in the Qn. Of The Turf. Conditions should improve here. Could have the final say. HOT DANISH (L J Bridge) 5m By Nothin’ Leica Dane - Hot ‘n’ Breezy (16:10- 3-0):Wonderful mare who did all the hard work when 3/4 len 2nd (57.0) Neroli 1500m R’hill Qn. Of The Turf heavy trk April 4 then did’t quite see the trip out last week when when 3-1/4 len 12th (54.0) Vision And Power 1600m R’wick Doncaster Hcp dead trk April 18. Didn’t quite see the mile out last week. Drops to pet distance and deserves a G1 win next to her name. Respect. ILLUMINATES (G A Rogerson) 4m By Strategic - Dazzle Light (36:7-5-7): Won Aspiration Qlty beating Imananabaa March 14 then 2-3/4 len 10th (51.0) Typhoon Tracy 1500m R’hill Coolmore dead trk Mar 21. Had specking when just worked home evenly under the big load for 3-1/2 len 8th (58.0) Divine Rebel 1900m R’hill Epona Stakes Mar 28.
