Working his way through the ranks nicely. Likely leader again and could take catching on the limit. DOTHIS DOTHAT (W P Cave) 6g (27:5-4- 4): Victorious in 1300m R’hill Wlter first-up then met with interference in wet and struck rail (injuring jockey) when 6-1/4 len 5th (56.0) Tagus 1600m R’wick Rst2 heavy trk June 6. Again struck traffic when trimmed margin late 2-3/4 len 10th (53.0) Hadaaf 1400m R’hill Civic Stakes slow trk July 4. Not much has gone right for him last couple. Extra 100m a plus. Could place.

Up to an unchart- ed distance now but that should’t faze him.

Reverted back to more patient tactics and wound up late down centre for 1/2 len 4th (53.0) Hadaaf 1400m R’hill Civic Stakes slow trk July 4. Turned in a real eyecatcher at massive odds in the Civic.

Form had been dismal then sparked up with the two tri- al wins and improved noticeably at big odds over this route in the slow last outing. Bow- man sticks but minor claims appear best.

Kept battling away 4 len, 1-1/2 len 3rd (53.0) Plenty Of Practise, Majorca 1500m E Farm C6 dead trk July 4. Went better with the blinkers on last time. Should make her presence felt.

Trialled twice for return, latest when sht 1/2 hd win High Spire, Paxton 815m W Farm barrier trial heavy trk July 10. Only placed once from 12 goes in Hong Kong but trials have been good and gets in well with claim for Nathan Berry. Watch betting moves. GREAT FEELING (R R Milligan) 6g (25:6- 4-5): Parked just off the pace and kicked through to score 1-3/4 len win (58.5) The Fangsta, Gold Mount 1100m Wyong E&G (71) heavy trk June 18 then overraced up front but kept on for decisive hd win (58.5) He’s In Demand, Glenarvon Girl 1100m C’bury (75) slow trk July 1.

C’bury 1100m R75 victor in slow going June 10 before striking hvy tracks. Knockout hope with lightweight and inside gate.

Danger with repeat. MUSIC ACADEMY (G L Andrews) 5g (15:5-2-0): Beaten fav when len 2nd (58.0) Gumnuts 1100m Wellington Open Hcp June 15 (2008). Trialled impressively and came in for specking first-up when faded badly off the pace for 8-3/4 len last (51.0) Teasing 1100m R’hill Hcp slow trk July 4. Disappointed first run from long lay-off here earlier this month. Wait for signs of improvement. THE TAKE (P M Perry) 5g (13:3-1-3):Handy on pace performance here two back when lg hd, 2 len 3rd (56.5) Koichi, Motspur 1100m R’hill (86) heavy trk June 27 then over same route led on his own but came up short 7-1/2 len 8th (51.5) Teasing 1100m R’hill Hcp slow trk July 4. Faded after going out at solid clip here last outing. Alley tests. ORPEN ROSE (Steven Wilson) 5m (32:8- 3-4): Landed nk win (50.0) Beau Secret, Spectacular Iam 1100m C’bury Rst0 heavy trk May 27 then on same track over a touch longer shared lead and fought on resolutely for 1/2 hd win (56.0) Pure Beauty, Beyonce’s Star 1200m C’bury F&M Hcp-75 slow trk June 10. Freshened since bringing up hat- trick at C’bury last month. Up further in class now but weighted accordingly and she gets through the going. Danger. RACE 8 1500m CENTRE ARENA (Ms J Bowen) 4g (13:3- 6-0): Struggled from the wide gate first-up when 7-1/2 len 13th (55.5) Allaboutus 1250m C’bury (86) May 16. Much better ef- fort when back to pet dist range and backed from 20-1 into 12-1 when sht hd 2nd (53.0) Togni 1500m R’hill Rst2 heavy trk June 27. Right up in the weights now but has the draw to figure again and in form hoop sticks. THUNDERBIRDSAREGO (Ms G Markwell) 6g (51:5-13-8): Made it back-to-back plac- ings on the Kensington track when lg nk, 1/2 len 3rd (57.5) Joe Blow, Orca 1800m Rand- wick-Kensington (81) Mar 19. First run for three months 6-1/4 len 9th (56.0) Malambo 1300m R’wick Rst1 heavy trk June 30. Strips trimmer but he’s never won second-up and record here is far from inspiring. AUSWORLD (G D Hickman) 4g (11:4-2-1): Closed rapidly in the wet to score 1/2 len win (54.5) Zakynthos Expectus, Dictatorial 1550m C’bury Rst0 heavy trk June 16 then squeezed onto rail before working home gamely for 1/2 nk, len 3rd (56.5) Don Luigi, Natmana 1600m R’wick (75) heavy trk June 30. Racing well and should give plenty of cheek again from the inside alley. CHINGGIS (J C McNair) 7g (17:2-2-1): Beat only tired horses to line 7-3/4 len 7th (57.5) Trevbar 1200m C’bury Rst0 heavy trk June 16 then carried the grandstand in lat- est 4-1/2 len 5th (60.5) Fire Break 1200m Gosford C2 heavy trk June 24. Improved last time with huge impost but minor claims ap- pear best here. SUPERREACT (A J Denham) 5g (32:4-9- 3): Always back in the small field and vet- ted after 7-1/4 len last (56.0) War Council 2800m C’bury (79) slow trk Feb 19. Encour- aging signs first-up over unsuitable trip when closed late for 2-1/4 len 4th (55.5) Malambo 1300m R’wick Rst1 heavy trk June 30. Caught eye first-up at an unsuitable trip. This still short of best but should get pace to suit. Each-way appeal. OUR MOSSTIQUE (C E Conners) 4g (29:2- 6-6): Always same in wet 12-3/4 len 6th (55.5) Mr Unforgettable 1400m Randwick- Kensington (86) heavy trk June 20 then up in distance and back to midweek level for similar even 4-1/2 len 6th (58.5) Don Luigi 1600m R’wick (75) heavy trk June 30. Strug- gling for form on the hvy tracks this time in. Bowman rides but still hard to get keen. THE FANGSTA (Ms K Waugh) 6g (43:5- 7-7): First outing for six months when fin- ished full of running in the wet 1-3/4 len 2nd (56.5) Great Feeling 1100m Wyong E&G (71) heavy trk June 18 then in small field rearward into stretch before working home solidly for 2-3/4 len, nose 3rd (54.5) Sacred Orders, Zarvista 1250m C’bury (86) slow trk July 1. Found line well both runs this prep. Look for him late again. Each-way appeal. HEXAMETER (Peter Snowden) 5m (18:4- 4-1): Failed to make an impression in 8 len 8th (53.0) Tagus 1600m R’wick Rst2 heavy trk June 6. Freshened up when handily placed but dropped off midstretch 5-3/4 len last (56.0) Bay Window 1500m R’hill (81) slow trk July 4. Needs to improve on that. ULTRA (Murray Wilson) 5g (20:5-0-3): On pace 5yo who crossed to lead then drifted to box-seat and battled away in the wet for 2-1/4 len 4th (57.5) The Invincible One 1250m C’bury E&G (75) heavy trk June 25 then again crossed to lead but unable to sustain bid fading 9-1/4 len 9th (58.5) Wave The Dollar 1400m Hawkesbury (71) heavy trk July 9. Likely leader again but up further in distance now. IN BOCCA LUPO (Ms G Markwell) 5g (13:2-3-1): Was a dual Kembla winner be- fore luckless 3-1/4 len 4th (57.5) Gazza Guru 1600m Gosford (70) heavy trk June 24 then back home for closing 1-3/4 len, 1-1/4 len 3rd (59.5) Smokey Haze, Our Vegas Dream 1400m Kembla Grange E&G (65) dead trk July 4. Consistent of late in weaker races. Each-way appeal. UNIVERSAL COLOURS (G A Ryan) 4g (17:1-3-3): Resumes from let-up. Boxed away in the small field 1/2 nk, 1-3/4 len 3rd (54.5) Grizz, Zephyria 2250m Hawkesbury (81) dead trk April 29 prior to 9-3/4 len 13th (53.5) Wildwind Spirit 2250m Hawkesbury (83) May 9.Kept in trim with 2 len 2nd Kick ‘n Chase 1030m R’hill barrier trial dead trk July 7. Only one win to his credit and that was over 1900m. Later. SMOKEY HAZE (Brian Young) 5g (35:5-3- 6): Just missed on his home track nose 2nd (51.0) Frolics 1600m Kembla Grange (69) dead trk June 13 then switched to shorter trip and closed powerfully to score 1-3/4 len win (53.5) Our Vegas Dream, In Bocca Lupo 1400m Kembla Grange E&G (65) dead trk July 4. Got the drop on them at Kembla. Up in class now but with right tempo could run into the minors. NARWEE (N M Daly) 4g (18:2-2-2): Bailed up at 600m when 5-3/4 len 6th (56.5) Stifle 1600m Kembla Grange C2 slow trk May 30 then never out of trouble near tail and safely held 7 len 9th (52.5) Nixie 1900m C’bury (75) slow trk June 10. Doubt he’ll find this easy. TEARS TO LAUGHTER (P H Dombkins) 4g (15:2-1-1): Could only manage 7-1/4 len 5th (51.0) Sacred Orders 1250m C’bury (86) slow trk July 1. In weaker event dropped out then closed late for 2-3/4 len 4th (58.0) Lord Verdi 1550m Cessnock (62) slow trk July 7. Eligible and prefer in much easier races. heraldsun.com.au
