First-up got back and surged home late under the big impost to finish 1-1/4 len 2nd (58.5) Comet Watch 1300m W Farm (75) heavy trk April 15. Hit line with plenty of conviction in wet first-up. Rising sharply in class here but again one for minors. MUFASA (G M Begg) 4g By Scenic - Gyffies (24:3-3-1): Failed to flatter in 6-1/2 len 8th (55.5) Mastercraft 1400m C’field (82) Jan 3. First-up off wide gate when again safely held 7-3/4 len 11th (51.5) Emperator 1400m R’wick (91) dead trk April 18. Wasn’t suited first-up when caught out of ground on the wet track. Open to improvement on a firmer track but again drawn out. VERY GRAND (J B Cummings) 5m By O’Reilly - Snobbish (23:3-3-3): Up in grade and did herself no favours by overracing when 5-1/2 len 9th (53.0) Divine Rebel 1900m R’hill Epona Stakes Mar 28 then better effort when down in trip and closed solidly 1-1/2 len 4th (53.0) Music Review 1600m R’wick Rst2 slow trk April 18.

Never out of trouble when boxed on for 2-1/4 len 6th (53.0) Music Review 1600m R’wick Rst2 slow trk April 18.

Up further in grade and sent out fav where he led until shadows of post 1/2 nk 2nd (57.0) Music Review 1600m R’wick Rst2 slow trk April 18. Looks very hard to beat here. MUSIC REVIEW (J A O’Shea) 5m By Singspiel - Vivid Concert (20:5-3-2): Was 4th Kingston Town and 5th Colin Stephens last prep then spelled after finishing down the track in the Metropolitan. Unsuited first- up 14-1/2 len 11th (53.5) Dao Dao 1400m R’hill Royal Parma heavy trk April 4 then turned it around quickly second-up when stalked pace and kicked on for 1/2 nk win (56.0) Joku, Barlagarney 1600m R’wick Rst2 slow trk April 18. Gutsy effort at 20-1 when denied Joku (4-1 fav) second-up. Meets Joku on level terms this time but will strip fitter again and stays under strong notice. JUERGA (S G Hood) 8g By Kaapstad - Skylarking (73:13-15-13): Iron horse who was 2nd to Absent Friends in midweek W Farm 1600m event three back then fav when just behind placegetters 1-1/2 len 4th (58.5) Canterdown 2100m Orange Orange Cup Mar 29. Back to town and ran home soundly without threatening in the wet to finish 3-3/4 len 7th (55.5) Music Review 1600m R’wick Rst2 slow trk April 18. One for minors. KING’S FIRST (J B Cummings) 5g By Shrewdy - Monet’s Diva (28:5-3-5): Was 4th Randwick 2000m Rst89 event March 7, then again not far off them when 1-3/4 len 5th (53.0) Keepin’ The Dream 1900m R’hill Sky High Stakes dead trk Mar 21. Dropped in distance and never a factor when 4-3/4 len 10th (53.0) Walking Or Dancing 1600m R’wick Hcp dead trk April 11. Hard to enthuse over latest. RISAYLA (Ms K Waugh) 5m By Polish Precedent - Riyafa (16:2-5-1): Terrific effort at long odds behind an outstanding mare 1/2 hd, 1/2 hd 3rd (53.0) Divine Rebel, Prima Nova 1900m R’hill Epona StakesMar 28 then never a factor 7-1/4 len 9th (53.0) Prima Nova 2000m R’wick J R A Plate dead trk April 18. Open to improvement back in this company with 2kg laim for Berry.

Tidy return making late ground 4-1/4 len 7th (56.0) Emperator 1400m R’wick (91) dead trk April 18. Fitter into this but place makes best appeal at this stage of his preparation. MR GILLY (Ms K Waugh) 5g By Keeper - Honey Be Ours (27:5-4-4): Trusty stayer who ended spring campaign on a high note recording 1-1/2 len win (55.0) Chelmsford, Royal Stash 2600m R’wick Rst1 Dec 26. Totally unsuited by trip and conditions first-up when 7-3/4 len 11th (56.0) Shadow Cabinet 1600m W Farm (81) heavy trk April 15. Did little first-up in the heavy. Form is over longer.
