Jumps significantly in grade now and minor claims would appear best. SECORD (P M Perry) 4m By Encosta De Lago - Little Deuce Coupe (17:2-0-1): Jumped to front then allowed to drift back and safely held 6-1/4 len 7th (55.5) Douraya 2100m Wyong C2 dead trk April 16 then moved up midrace and kicked on in the wet to record lg nk win (53.0) Sonaran, Zephyria 2100m Gosford C1 heavy trk April 23. May need those conditions again. FUSAICHI WARRIOR (Ms A Turner & M Poletti) 4g By Fusaichi Pegasus - Riveryev (22:1-3-1): Lone start here hit line for 3/4 len 2nd (52.0) Monte Mac 2000m Hawkesbury C2 dead trk April 9 then in softer going boxed on just behind the placings for 1-1/4 len 4th (53.5) Secord 2100m Gosford C1 heavy trk April 23. Harder this time but gets in very light. Roughie for minors only. WALLACHIA (P M Perry) 4g By Dracula - Eyenar (20:2-2-4): Amongst the tail then let down strongly in stretch to finish 1-1/4 len, 2 len 3rd (55.5) Douraya, Rogue Scholar 2100m Wyong C2 dead trk April 16 then ridden back in small field and never got near them 6-1/4 len 4th (53.0) Grizz 2250m Hawkesbury (81) dead trk April 29. More pace engaged today and gets in light with in form claimer on board. Could figure at odds.

Improved when ridden closer and boxed on for 1-1/4 len 2nd (55.5) Douraya 2100m Wyong C2 dead trk April 16. More depth here but again a multiples hope. SONARAN (Ms A Turner & M Poletti) 5g By Desert Prince - Salisopra (22:1-1-1): 60-1 when just battled away for 4-1/2 len 5th (53.5) Monte Mac 2000m Hawkesbury C2 dead trk April 9 then back to own level and just missed in the sloppy conditions lg nk 2nd (53.0) Secord 2100m Gosford C1 heavy trk April 23.

Worth some thought on the limit. FEORLAN (L J Tilley) 5g By Mull Of Kintyre - Queen’s Revenge (31:2-4-1):Never a factor from wide gate 7-1/2 len 15th (52.0) Divine Rebel 2600m R’wick Chairman’s Hcp dead trk April 11 then specked at big odds when battled away in wet for 2-1/2 len 5th (53.0) Cape Breton 2000m R’wick (85) slow trk April 25. Gets back a mile which is some concern on the much tighter Hawkesbury circuit. PACHIRA (Ms W Ings) 5g By Black Hawk - Kensington Rose (32:4-1-1): Off wide barriers both runs this prep when followed 5 len 14th (54.5) Magic Eagle 1500m Newcastle (71) dead trk April 11 with 14 len last (54.0) Holdem 2000m Kembla Grange (71) dead trk April 18. Winner only other try t/d. Better draw today and getting fitter. Could improve at odds. FLAXMILL ROAD (G L Frazer) 4g By Mithrandir - Brief Prospect (19:2-0-5): Didn’t get much room in straight when 2-1/4 len, 3/4 len 3rd (53.5) Hexaar Beauty, Yummy 1600m Goulburn C2 April 20 then 4-1 when 1-1/4 len 5th (53.0) Prince Of Snippers 2000m Kembla Grange C2 dead trk May 2. Lines up in stronger here and poorly drawn but consistent of late and with an ounce of luck on his home track could sneak into the minors. RACE 5 1600m TERANABA (J C Coyle) 5h By Anabaa - Tristera (17:2-1-2): Sent to paddock after 6-3/4 len last (58.5) Swiss Ace 1200m E Farm Sir Byrne Hart April 26 (2008). Resumed in same race and first run for the Coyle stable when always rearward 5-1/4 len 7th (58.5) Swiss Ace 1200m E Farm Sir Byrne Hart April 25. G1 winner at three but hasn’t done a great deal since.

First-up last week found trouble and just battled to line 4-1/2 len 7th (56.0) Kiloton 1400m R’hill Hcp dead trk May 2. Probably entitled to finish a bit closer at Rosehill first-up last Saturday. Usually improves second-up and winner only other start here. In the mix. 5 Rating 80 Hcp 4.50 1000m $50,000 3yo & up.
