Wasn't knocked around when 6th Walk Of Fame 900m R'hill barrier trial Nov 24. Had a quiet trial but fresh stats are ex- cellent and record this trip reads (5:3-1-1). Bears close scrutiny.

Lonhro gelding who returned from long break in sparkling order at Warwick Farm. Up in class but looks a smart one and should be prominent again from the perfect draw.

Just failed to complete hat-trick in much stronger event up north when sht 1/2 hd 2nd (55.5) Swiss Rose 1200m D'ben Mode Stakes Dec 5.

Unable to secure a clear run when 1-1/2 len 5th (54.0) Latin News 1150m Randwick-Kensington 3yo (Bm75) Nov 28. Nicely drawn and expect that form to hold up well here.

Two runs back have contained merit and rates among the leading chances here. MR SLICK (C Karakatsanis) 6g By Shinko King - Eternal Grace (25:8-8-1): Overraced just behind the speed then tightened at vital point when sht 1/2 hd 2nd (57.5) Greatwall Of China 1300m Sandown-Hillside (95) dead trk Nov 14. Returned to Sydney for 4 len 6th (58.0) Trader 1300m R'hill (Bm85) Dec 5. On a quick back-up after being well beaten under 58kg here last week. Can im- prove with the weight relief.

Since recorded 1-3/4 len win Deep Denizen, Savy's Girl 1200m R'wick barrier trial Dec 4. Indicated he was back on track with recent trial win. Brown rides and should get pace to suit here. Both totes. O'CRIKEY (G Portelli) 6g By O'Reilly - Un- garo (42:7-5-4): Weakened in drive 9-1/4 len 12th (54.5) El Mandon 1400m Bendigo Open Hcp Oct 28 then freshened before returning to Sydney and making all the running here when 2-1/4 len 6th (50.0) Lyncean Academy 1400m R'hill Hcp Nov 21. Freerunning gal- loper who has been down on form in recent runs and can only be taken on trust here. TOGNI (Peter Snowden) 5g By Giant's Causeway - Florilegio (18:5-3-3): Hesitant at start first-up then settled midfield and just battled to line 1-3/4 len 7th (57.0) Hussenor 1400m R'wick (Bm90) Nov 7. Advanced into stretch but effort short lived folding 6-1/4 len 10th (53.0) Lyncean Academy 1400m R'hill Hcp Nov 21. Needs to find plenty after lat- est failure.

Can be forgiven for latest. Chance on previ- ous placing behind Lyncean Academy and Theophorus. SHADOW CABINET (C J Waller) 5g By Noverre - Shadow Roll (28:6-5-3): Made most of the running here two back when len, hd 3rd (55.0) Love And Kisses, Dubai To Sydney 1500m R'hill (Bm92) Nov 14 then tracked leader but couldn't quite see out the extra distance 5-3/4 len 5th (56.5) Bandar 1800m Randwick-Kensington (Bm85) Nov 28.

Fitter and expect that form to hold up well here. Genuine lightweight hope. CENTOVER (A J Edmonds) 6g By Over - Marcent (30:6-3-1): Jumped away awk- wardly and never a threat from the wide alley 10-1/2 len 14th (58.0) Elusive Touch 1200m R'hill (Bm75) Nov 14. Fared better when up to this trip for 2-1/2 len 6th (51.5) Rockwood 1400m Randwick-Kensington (Bm85) Nov 28.
