Led all way to land 3m win from Candys Princess in 1720m Penrith C0 Oct 22. Makes stong appeal. POINTS NORTH (6) was turned out after poor 36.5m 9th to Sand And Surf in 1609m Newcastle C0/C1 Jul 25. Led throughout to land 8.1m win from Secret Heir in 2030m Newcastle C0 May 16. Should go well fresh. SONGS OF CIARA (3) is due for a change of luck.

That was first run in a while and sure to strip trimmer. Take on trust. OCEAN SPUR (2) is an on pace type who worked to line keenly when 2.3m 3rd to Digtheboy in 1609m Newcastle R0 Dec 3. Drawn to run boldy. Treat warily. DIGTHEBOY (9) was rewarded for a string of placings when leading throughout to land half head win from Hillbilly Delux in 1609m Newcastle R0 Dec 3. Harder this time but not without a place claims. CHAIN OF NATIONS (11) caught the eye on debut when forced to work hard outside leader for 10.8m 2nd to Foureightyeight in 2030m Newcastle C0 Nov 28.

One to follow with a degree of confidence. CHARLIE BUBBLES (1) was always in charge from the front for commanding 9.4m win from Cousin Christian in 1609m Newcastle 3R0 (1:59.8) Nov 26. Will be in this for a long way. PONDEROSA JONNY (5) made it three runners up cheques in a month when 1.5m 2nd to Nomorebets in 2030m Newcastle 3C0+ Nov 28. Laboured in straight for most of event last time but got going late. Each-way all night. SPIRITEDJASPER (8) led throughout to land 8.1m win from Business Time in 1720m Penrith 3C0/3C1 Nov 26.

Led throughout to land 3.6m win from Mighty Franco in 1609m Newcastle C2 Oct 22. Stick with him. SURFEROO (9) was rested following dismal 9th behind Imatomo in 2095m Penrith C3/C4 Nov 26 since landing head win from Im Stepping Along in 2550m Newcastle C2/C4 Oct 31. Can lift.

Well placed here. Worth another chance on previous efforts. JACCKA LIMON (6) made the pace and came away at finish to land 9.7m win from Dixie Bromac in 2100m Gold Coast C1 Dec 4. Right in this. Don't treat lightly. OUR SIR ANGUS (5) broke early and overlook 13.9m 7th to Waingaro Fantasy in 2550m Newcastle C1/C4 Nov 28 since landing 2.8m win from George Lochinvar in 2550m Newcastle C1/C4 Nov 21. Stick with him.

Fitter for that run and winner 31 of 59 starts and will be improved greatly by latest outing. Hard to beat. CULLENS LEGACY (9) was three wide in middle stages but worked to front and easily came away for 9.5m win from Trumpeter in 2140m Bankstown C4/C8 Dec 5, was $1.90 fav. Should give a bold sight for a long way. (11) Virage resumed when handy 4.8m 2nd to Holy Camp Boy in 1609m Menangle M2/M4 (1:54.9) Nov 29. Should be running on. One of the main hopes.

Finished head 2nd to Kimberly Street in 1760m Harold Park C2+ Nov 27. Well placed in this grade. TRUMPETER (4) made the early pace and stuck on fairly when 9.5m 2nd to Cullens Legacy in 2140m Bankstown C4/C8 Dec 5. In top Sydney stable. One of the main hopes. HARRY TRUE STAR (5) never in the hunt from deep peg trail when 6.7m 6th to Lord Bronson in 2030m Newcastle C6/ C9 Dec 3. Did land 1.6m win from Whatalittlebeauty in 1609m Newcastle C4/C6 Sep 3. Has won 11 of 64 attempts and should be nearing his peak. Has each-way claims.

Rates highly. AMERICAS BROMAC (7) never got a clear crack at leaders 17.8m 8th to Tomorrows Dream in 2160m Harold Park C2 Dec 4 since landing 2.6m win from Duke Of Saxeby in 1609m Menangle C2 Nov 24.

FOUREIGHTYEIGHT (11) could not have been any more impressive than when circling field in middle stages to land runaway 10.8m win from Chain Of Nations in 2030m Newcastle C0 Nov 28. There are plenty more wins in store on that score. BLAXLAND BREW (7) can do better than average 5.2m 4th to Snowchain in 2030m Newcastle C1 Nov 28. Ran 7.5m 2nd to Emmas Prince in 1609m Newcastle C0/C2 Oct 31. Each-way. LAUGH FAMOUS (5) came from a long way back on pegs to finish plodding 17.9m 3rd to Werakata in 2030m Newcastle C0/C1 Dec 3.

He'll find this a fair bit easier despite the wide draw and should take a power of beating. HILTON ADONIS (3) is bursting to win a race, although it's fair to say he's much more of a place than a winning proposition these days. He's drawn to be in the finish. THREE OCLOCK ROCK (4) is racing in great heart and is drawn better than he was last week when he worked three-wide without cover on the bell lap and ran a narrow 2nd to Camkenzie Boy. MASSARUA (5) has been up on the speed in quickly run races at his last two. If he can find the front or a nice spot in the running line and they don't go too hard, he's a big chance. UNIQUE STYLE (9) ran a much better race last time out behind Doolan Jack, while ANITOM (7) is going Ok but crying out for a good draw, which he doesn't have here. SELECTIONS: HEATHBERN DIAMOND (10), Three Oclock Rock (4), Hilton Adonis (3), Massarua (5) 2 Pace 7.22 2230m. $4500.

He's very genuine and, with any lucky from the gate, won't be far away. Drawn immediately to his inside is TATACHILLA LAD (6), who is a talented type and ran an improved race here last weekend. He has shown gate speed in the past and without too many fast starters drawn inside, he could take up a forward position from the outset. BOXNDICE (8) finally broke through for a win last start and has the ability to go on with it. The draw is of some concern if those in front don't show gate speed. DANCING ROCKET (4) was racing well before an ordinary effort last start behind Millwood PC. She may not have been suited by going forward from the wide gate to sit outside the leader, so you think she might be driven more conservatively here. PANDEMANIA (9) wasn't far behind RAISINA RUCKUS last start, while JEN AVERIL (5) ran third on her local debut on Monday and should be improved for that. LOST KEYS (1) is one for the multiples from a nice draw. SELECTIONS: TATACHILLA LAD (6), Raisina Ruckus (7), Boxndice (8), Dancing Rocket (4) 3 Pace 7.54 2230m. $4750.

Last week, when beaten 3.8m by Nevada Bye Bye, she was positioned behind the leader (winner) on the bell lap and battled it right out as favourite in this grade over the same journey. An effort close to that would see her very hard to toss. Third in that same race, beaten a similar margin, was TOO GOOD TO REFUSE (6) and a repeat effort puts him in with a strong claim as he was wide early and forced to sit in the death seat throughout. DEE KAYS LE FEMME (3) also comes out of that event, where she ran fifth after drawing the pole. She should be close enough to the lead to give her a genuine each-way tilt, while UNLIMITED WARRANTY (8) is worth a place ticket. LOVES A DRINK (5) is worth another chance after having little luck in the early stages in her latest outing.

But there are plenty with pace and she might not get everything her own way, especially if DIONYSUS GOLD (6), who finished third behind her two starts ago, is anywhere near his peak. He has a very handy record of 10 wins and 14 placings from only 27 starts and in his three starts this campaign has improved in each outing. He definitely does look the biggest threat to NEVADA BYE BYE. SHE'S THE SHIZZEL (5) hasn't been too far away in recent times and is worth an each-way chance after trying hard at her past two starts. The consistent BYE BYE BRIDEY (8) is also another with sound claims, coming off an 1800m win two starts ago and then finishing a close-up 3rd behind Tinsnip over 2230m last week.

He's drawn nicely and looks the testing material. CLARENDEN SERENE (1) is perfectly drawn and was a winner here three starts back. She wasn't far away last time when 3rd behind Sure Ionafastone and must be given plenty of thought from the good draw. ROCK THE BOAT (6) is racing in great form and he came off a good speed when a smart winner over Sure Ionafastone here last week. He's drawn a touch wide but is sure to be thereabouts. MEGA HAUL (5) has won two of his past five starts and wasn't far away behind Seafield Cullen last time. SELECTIONS: RYANS JOURNEY (4), Clarenden Serene (1), Rock The Boat (6), Mega Haul (5) 6 Pacers Hcp 9.22 2645m. $7000.

He was a good winner at Port Pirie two starts ago, then wasn't disgraced behind Longtan Safari in a quickly run Italian Cup here a week ago, when he was hunted out early and was three-wide before finding a spot in the running line. AWESOME ALBA (4) is another with an affinity for the stand. He's off 20m here but his recent claiming efforts from the mobile show he's going pretty well. Hard to assess where SCRUFFY MURPHY (6) is at right now. He's another who historically goes well from the stand but his two performances since returning to SA have been only moderate. CULLENS HOPE (2) ran an improved race in last week's Italian Cup. This is an easier race and he starts from the front, although the stand is something relatively new to him. BLADE OF GLORY (3), BEE JAY GEM (1) and MYTHICAL BEAST (5) are all chances for the multiples in a very open race. SELECTIONS: DOOLAN JACK (7), Awesome Alba (4), Cullens Hope (2), Blade Of Glory (3) 7 Pace 9.52 2230m. $4750.

He's drawn to push forward and be handy throughout. He'll give this a shake. INNER PEACE (3) started an odds-on favourite when a 20m winner over Ahmaz last time. That form makes him a major player here. TASCA (7) was a winner here five starts back defeating Linga Longa Lass and he tried hard when runner-up behind Nevada Bye Bye two starts back. He's poorly drawn but must be respected. WIDE LOAD (6) is drawn wide but has been placed his past six starts since winning here in October. He made good ground last time and has claims with some luck in running. FRAGMENTS (1) was a winner here in August and must be respected. FLEURIEU (2) has been placed at his past five starts and is nicely drawn. SELECTIONS: INNER PEACE (3), Better Than Elvis (4), Tasca (7), Fleurieu (2) 8 Trot 10.22 2230m. $5250.

He ought to give this a shake. SUELAURIAN (7) is hit or miss proposition but her best is good enough to win this. If she paces throughout she'll be thereabouts. MAJOR GRANT (8) only plodded to the line last week but is consistent and doesn't make too many mistakes. Drawn immediately outside of him is WREKOGNIZE (9), who has struck a real patch of form, while KARAMBOO (10) will have to go back from the draw but was good last week when able to go to the front from the stand. Look for him to be put into the race at some stage. It's hard to see any of the rest winning, although BOLD MOVER (1) has the ability to run a cheeky race from the pole.
