Well beaten by a few of these on debut. Hard to see him turning things around. MARSEILLE ROULETTE (Ms G Waterhouse) 2c: First start. By Zizou - Eclectus. Settled handy and was pushed out to score 1/2 hd win Spud O'Reilly, Pitcrew 740m R'wick barrier trial Jan 4. Dam was a winner over 1200m. Her only foal to race is a maiden.

Dam was a winner over 1000m and is a half-sister to American G2 winner Ubiquity. She has produced a winner from two foals to race. Will need plenty of luck from the hor- ror gate. SNAPPY DIAMOND (John Nisbet) 2f By Mu- tawaajid - Snappy Girl (1:0-0-1): Found the line solidly from midfield on debut but was no match for first two home 2-3/4 len, 2 len 3rd (52.5) Meticulously, Special Rules 1000m Wagga 2yo Mdn Plate Jan 8.

Strode along midfield and held ground to the line 2-3/4 len 5th (54.0) Swing Vote 1000m W Farm 2yo Plate Jan 5. Speedy type who hasn't done much wrong to date.

Wasn't asked to do much in hd, 1-1/2 len 3rd Clarence View, Myladyluck 735m R'wick barrier trial dead trk Dec 17. Dam was a winner over 1200m. Her only foal to race is a winner.

Sat behind the speed and chased well nk 2nd Awarewolf 900m R'hill barrier trial (Mdn) Jan 8. Dam won two races over 1000m and 1100m. All three of her foals to race are winners.

Worked home nicely under a hold 6th Manchebo 800m W Farm barrier trial slow trk Dec 28. First-up. Gets a long way back and needs luck but she can pro- duce a devastating finishing burst. Proven when fresh and over this trip. Just needs some clear running from the 600m.

Camped in the box-seat and gave strong chase again to post 1-1/2 len win (54.0) Soledad, Uate 1200m Gosford Takeo- ver Target Jan 10. Comes into this in great form and he has drawn to receive all the favours again. Amongst the hardest to beat. TROMSO (C J Waller) 6g By Lonhro - Feel- ers (32:5-9-2): Always well back during 7-1/4 len 15th (55.0) Malavio 1500m R'hill Festival Stakes Dec 8. Ridden patiently again and was able to make up some late ground 2-1/2 len 6th (55.5) Merlin Mustang 1400m W Farm Hcp Jan 5. Racing below his best of late but he is normally around the mark when racing over this track/distance. Include in the exotics. MOTSPUR (K A Lees) 10g By Flying Spur - Crusading Lil (56:12-7-11): Spelled after battling away for 6-1/4 len 6th (57.5) Too Many Reds 1200m E Farm Open Hcp Sept 29. Tracked the leaders and boxed on well first-up 3/4 len 4th (55.5) No Looking Back 1100m R'hill Carrington Stks Jan 1. Ran well first-up in the Carrington Stakes but he can race flat second-up and best form is over a touch shorter. Prepared to risk.

Ran a crack- ing race first-up here then got well back at Canterbury last start and was never likely. Peaks now and steps out to his pet trip. Look for improvement. BELLO (Peter Snowden) 4g By Exceed And Excel - Cara Bella (16:4-3-4): Sent to the paddock after going down narrowly in nk 2nd (59.0) Thumbtacks 1600m W Farm (Bm86) Aug 25. Finished off strongly from midfield to just miss sht hd, nk 3rd (60.5) Testarhythm, Zedlion 1250m C'bury (Bm85) Dec 29. Ran home well when resuming at Canterbury three weeks ago.

Disappointed at Warwick Farm a fortnight ago when heavily backed. Good enough to win this but he will need luck from the outside gate. SAMUI LAD (Ms G Waterhouse) 6g By Can- ny Lad - Desaru (20:6-4-3): Used up to take up the running and did well to kick on and post 1/2 len win (56.0) Capital Commander, Happy Hussy 1400m R'hill (Bm90) Dec 15. Camped outside the speed and gave his all in the straight but found a few too strong 2-1/2 len 4th (54.0) Merlin Mustang 1400m W Farm Hcp Jan 5. Lightly raced 6yo who goes forward and gives his all. Boasts im- pressive stats over this track/distance. In- clude amongst the better chances.

Bounced back to form at Warwick Farm last start but expect him to find this much tougher. PALASPORT (G D Hickman) 6g By Arena - Miss Superb (41:7-9-4): Had a few things go against during 3/4 len, sht 1/2 hd 3rd (53.5) World Wide, Euryale 1800m R'hill (Bm90) heavy trk July 7. Hasn't been seen in competition since being always well back in 10-1/4 len 9th (56.5) Mr Tipsy 2200m W Farm (Bm85) slow trk July 14. Improved by 4th Lucky Lona 1200m W Farm barrier trial dead trk Jan 15. First-up. Can run a cheeky race when fresh and he is a two-time winner over this trip. Worth including in the exotics. BEREFT (Peter Snowden) 5g By Lonhro - Lovelorn (25:4-8-2): Flashed home from the tail 1/2 len, 1/2 nk 3rd (58.0) River Of Salvation, Baltra 1300m W Farm (Bm80) Dec 22. Enjoyed a good trip midfield and worked all the way to the line for close-up sht 1/2 hd 2nd (58.0) Mossamine 1300m W Farm (Bm80) Jan 5. Darley gelding who is ticking over nicely.

Did some work early which took its toll late nose 2nd (58.5) Dynamic Jack 1200m Sunshine Coast C1 Jan 6. Lost no admirers last time and had the wow factor about him at debut. Cahill booking is timely. Can make amends with blinkers on first time. REGILLUS (A J Edmonds) 3g By Sequalo - Kayano (9:2-1-2): Led from wide gate and kept going strongly 1-3/4 len win (56.5) Old Lofty, Dazzle Us 1200m Sunshine Coast C1 Dec 23. Caught wide and didn't do bad job 3-3/4 len 8th (54.5) Exotic Sequel 1200m Gold Coast 3yo Jan 1. Had genuine excuses last time and previous form was consistent. Improved showing wouldn't shock. FUSIL DE EVE (Jason McLachlan) 3f By Chateau Istana - Eve Of Battle (11:3-1-1): Put away after 6-1/2 len last (58.5) Platinum State 1400m E Farm 3yo Sept 1.

Ran on well although clearly outpoint- ed 2-1/4 len 2nd (54.0) Volkhere 1300m E Farm C3 Plt slow trk Dec 26. Can unleash a blistering finish when she's on song. Firmer going will suit even better.

Rounded them up and powered clear 7-1/4 len win (55.0) Are Tee Ess, Rhiatenn Road 1200m Toowoomba Cushion C1 Jan 5. Question marks on strength of opposition he beat last time but did it with plenty of author- ity. Turf form when last in work wasn't flash. Has to be taken on trust on that basis. HAYYLER'S DRAGON (Mark Barnham) 3g By Hidden Dragon - Traumatic (7:1-1-1): Ran on well 2-1/2 len, 1-1/2 len 3rd (56.0) Six Of Hearts, Oh Golly 1200m Rockhampton Mdn Nov 29.
