Will have learnt plenty and that race should prove a strong guide for this event. Drawn to effect and extra 200m a plus. CELESTIAL CHARGER (Tony Crane) 2g By Charge Forward - Vida Celeste (2:0- 1-0): Brisbane visitor who did a good job in debut 3-3/4 len 2nd (55.5) Sister Havana 1030m D'ben 2yo Mdn dead trk Jan 2 then was on a quick back-up when switched back in distance for a late closing 2-3/4 len 4th (56.0) Little Zachary 800m Ipswich 2yo Hcp Jan 9 when midfield 6th on tur n. Hard to get a line through that form. Check markets. CHANCE BYE (M P Tubman) 2f By Snitzel - Rouge Femme (1:1-0-0): Followed up a ten len Kembla trial win with an outstanding debut 3-1/2 len win (54.0) Slice And Dice, Ancestor 1000m R'wick Inglis Nursery dead trk Dec 19 when she led from pillar to post. Boom filly who made a one-act affair of debut win in the Rand- wick Inglis Nursery. Drawn outside this time but that shouldn't worry her. Top chance. BOOMSHAKALAKA (M C Conners) 2f By Beautiful Crown - Little Lippy (2:0-0-1): Unwanted in betting when debut 5-1/4 len 7th (56.0) Bombay 1100m C'bury 2yoF Mdn Plate dead trk Dec 30 then had accepted for Rose- hill last Saturday (Elimbari's race) but stable opted for an easier target and she ran on sol- idly from rearward position for 1-3/4 len, 1-1/2 len 3rd (52.0) Decision Time, Excentrique 900m Kembla Grange 2yo Mdn Plate Jan 16.

Goes up 2.5kg from last week but slowly working into peak form and worth an eachway ticket here. LOCKMAR (F R Gardner) 5g By Marwina - Gold Locket (32:5-4-8): Long odds first-up when trimmed some of his margin late 2-1/2 len 7th (56.5) Altered Boy 1100m R'wick (Bm85) dead trk Dec 26 then returned to Open level and 20-1 when loomed on turn but effort short lived 6-1/4 len 10th (53.0) Dealer Principal 1300m R'wick Hcp Jan 9.

Danger with repeat of that. TOLLEMACHE (Peter Snowden) 4g By Viscount - Excited Angel (10:3-2-3): Nicely bred 4yo who hasn't done much wrong i ten career starts incl first-up when wound up late under the big load for 1-1/2 len 4th (59.0) Dillinger 1250m C'bury (Bm75) Dec 23 and latest when taken to Melb and 13-4 fav when worked home through the pack from midfield to just miss 1/2 nk, hd 3rd (57.5) Rainband, Kronstan 1400m C'field (82) Jan 9. Should be close to peak fitness now and McEvoy back on a good sign. Stable firing.

Given a cumbersome impost when down in grade but did a good job sht 1/2 hd, 1/2 len 3rd (60.0) Onthelook- out, Sarkosy 1300m R'wick (Bm70) Jan 1. Better conditioned for this and drops 5kg in this affair. Each-way appeal.

Smart on his day but very hard to catch him. Only for the brave. READINESS (Ms G Markwell) 4g By More Than Ready - Scale The Heights (9:3-1-0): Kembla Rst71 1400m winner Aug 8, then right up in grade and came in for specking but didn't run on 6-1/2 len last (55.0) Cousin Wal 1500m R'hill (81) Aug 15. Encouraging return at midweek level when came from back half of field (wide) to just miss sht nk 2nd (56.0) He's In Demand 1250m C'bury Rst0 dead trk Dec 30.

SHERZANDO (J C Coyle) 4g By Xaar - Please Smile (9:1-4-0): Ridden patiently from the outside gate (15) then let down well in straight and made up many lengths to fin- ish 1-3/4 len 5th (56.5) Thankgodyou'rehere 1400m R'wick Rst0 Jan 1 then up in dist again rearward before improving from 600m and kept on well for 2 len 2nd (57.5) Super Choice 1550m C'bury Rst0 dead trk Jan 14. Racing well from wide alleys this campaign. Up in class but should cope. DON LUIGI (K J Parker) 7g By Dr Fong - Ragnette (61:9-1-8): Far from disgraced at long odds from wide alley when made late ground for 3-1/4 len 6th (57.5) Onthelookout 1300m R'wick (Bm70) Jan 1 then similar closing 3 len 6th (53.0) Tagus 1500m R'hill (Bm85) dead trk Jan 16. Needs it rain affect- ed to be any sort of a hope in this affair. NAMSARAI (A J Cummings) 4g By Fusaichi Pegasus - Great Notice (5:0-0-2): First-up skinny odds (58.0kg) but brought down when looked like he was going to fight out the fin- ish in race won by Power And Glory 1000m Hawkesbury Mdn Dec 13 then sent north for the rich Magic Millions pickings and gave a very good sight when closing steadily out deep 3-3/4 len 6th (56.5) Retrospect 1200m Gold Coast M.M Mdn dead trk Jan 9. Still a maiden but stable had the confidence to send her to the Gold Coast last outing. Could surprise. RACE 7 1100m ALLERVITE (G Portelli) 5g By Choisir - Hit And Run (28:6-2-4): Off let-up when showed good pace but swallowed up inside final 200m when 2-3/4 len 8th (57.0) Altered Boy 1100m R'wick (Bm85) dead trk Dec 26 then pulled too hard up front and no suprise when he folded 4-3/4 len 8th (52.0) Dealer Principal 1300m R'wick Hcp Jan 9. Faded after setting a hot pace at Randwick. Suited by drop back and claims helps. Worth another look. MOTSPUR (K A Lees) 7g By Flying Spur - Crusading Lil (24:5-3-6): Encouraging signs first-up when lost position but came again for lg nk, lg nk 3rd (56.5) Altered Boy, Malambo 1100m R'wick (Bm85) dead trk Dec 26 then looked winner at 200m but reeled in by a smart one 1-3/4 len 2nd (56.5) Lighthorseman 1100m R'wick (Bm80) Jan 9.
