On pace and looked win- ner when grabbed by swooper sht nk 2nd (57.5) Zazabeau 2000m R'hill (Bm90) Dec 5. Unlucky when just grabbed by swooper at Rosehill.

Useful when right but minor claims appear best on his current form. O DANNY BOY (J B Cummings) 8g By Danehill - Haddria (32:3-4-3): C'bury mid- week winner Nov 11, then up in grade for de- termined lg hd 2nd (58.0) Emotional Outburst 2000m R'hill (Bm75) Nov 21.

Has been finding the line with plenty of conviction this campaign. Brown back on today and should get pace to suit. VARDON FLYER (A J Cummings) 5g By Flying Spur - Prized Possession (12:2-4- 2): Blundered at start then tracked speed but didn't go on and vetted after 4-1/2 len 11th (53.0) Baci Amore 1500m R'hill (Bm80) Nov 21 then up in dist for improved 3/4 len 2nd (51.0) Starzando 1800m R'hill (Bm80) Dec 5.

Only one win to his credit but the rise to 2000m should help now and could get into the minors at decent odds here. DRAGON DANCE (G H Walter) 4g By Dane- hill Dancer - Ceremonial Event (13:1-1-1): Just held position under the big load 4-3/4 len 6th (60.5) Kriegspiel 1600m Goulburn (Bm55) Nov 20 then had some specking when altered course in stretch and kept on for 2 len, hd 3rd (55.5) Regal Cat, Bella Me 2000m Kembla Grange (Bm60) Dec 5.

Forget latest when fav and never got a crack at them. Can bounce back here. PINATAS (Peter Snowden) 4g By Com- mands - Navidad (11:3-1-1): Didn't do much at resumption from wide alley 4-3/4 len 11th (57.0) Elusive Touch 1200m R'hill (Bm75) Nov 14 then up in distance for a vastly improved 1/2 len 2nd (53.0) Rock- wood 1400m Randwick-Kensington (Bm85) Nov 28.

Not much went right first-up when just behind the minors 1-3/4 len 4th (53.0) Rock- wood 1400m Randwick-Kensington (Bm85) Nov 28. Was unlucky not to finish in the minors at first run back.
