He's flying this time in and gets a handy claim here. The one to beat again. CAPTAIN DARLING (R J Walsh) 7g By Reset - Summereto (43:5-9-2): The saddle slipped when 1-1/2 len 5th (54.0) Carmenator 800m Mackay (Bm75) Sept 11 then he was spelled after finishing 6-3/4 len 5th (55.5) Tyson Rules 1100m Mackay Plate C6 Sept 22. Placed just once in seven previous first-up attempts and might need this run. PRIVATE CHAT (Ms M Hassam) 4g By Private Agenda - Capewind (20:4- 5-3): Followed nose win (55.5) Arrested For Speed, Sporting Page 1050m Rockhampton C4 Jan 3 with 11-3/4 len last (54.0) Bingo Rose 1350m D'ben C4 Jan 16.

HEROIC ACTION (Darren Symons) 3g By Soldier's Tale - Rosa Brava (3:2- 1-0): Was spelled after sht nk 2nd (57.0) Bagger Bones 800m Mackay C1 Nov 20 and resumed with 2-1/4 len win (58.5) Western York, Short Trip 1300m Mackay C1 Jan 12. Lightly-raced local who shows plenty of promise. Should be even fitter now and can take the next step. COMMANDING SPUR (J H Manzelmann) 6g By Flying Spur - Captain's Com- mand (15:4-1-2): Finished 2-1/4 len 2nd (54.0) Falls Creek 1300m Mackay C6 Nov 6 then ran 2 len, 3-1/2 len 3rd (59.0) Avadale, Deb's Hope 800m Mackay Plate C3 Jan 12. Fitter now and extra trip will suit. Worth some thought. MAECENUS (R J Walsh) 5m By Snippetson - Royal Mecene (27:4-3-3): Ran 3-3/4 len 4th (54.0) Assimilator 1100m Mackay C4 Dec 11 then was vetted after 10-3/4 len 10th (54.0) Moicheia 1300m Rockhampton C4 Dec 27. Awkwardly drawn here and place looks best hope. STEINBERG (Ben Williams) 4g By Happy Giggle - Bonny Miss (14:2-2-1): Beat half the field home when 2-1/2 len 6th (58.5) Meredith 1200m Towns- ville C2 Jan 8 then set the pace before finishing 5-1/2 len 11th (57.5) Junee Boy 1400m Townsville (Bm65) Jan 15. Needs to lift to be competitive in this. MISS PARMA (Andrew Cameron) 5m By Snitzel - You're The One (31:2- 5-6): Was spelled after 3/4 len 4th (55.0) Barely An Angel 1470m Bowen (Bm70) Aug 4 then finished 6-1/2 len 8th (54.5) Zanatus 1100m Mackay C2 Jan 12.

SHEZA FALVELON (S W Kendrick) 4m By Falvelon - Shezalago (18:2-3-2): At second run back finished 2-1/2 len, hd 3rd (55.5) Sporting Page, Bagger Bones 970m Rockhampton C2 Dec 20 then beat five home when 2-3/4 len 7th (55.5) Meredith 1200m Townsville C2 Jan 8. Made some ground late last time and should be better for three runs back. Perhaps a place. SWITMOA (Ms R Binder) 5m By Snitzel - Ripe Plum (25:3-4-3): Followed 5-3/4 len 6th (54.0) Assimilator 1100m Mackay C4 Dec 11 with 8-3/4 len 4th (57.0) Avadale 800m Mackay Plate C3 Jan 12. This trip suits better but class may test. Looking elsewhere. MOUBASSIN (D Lemmon) 7h By Iglesia - Katnip (52:3-7-12): Resumed racing with 7-3/4 len last (54.5) Why Not Now 1200m Townsville C3 Dec 4 then beat seven home when 4-3/4 len 9th (54.0) Junee Boy 1400m Townsville (Bm65) Jan 15. Tends to find one better but can run into a palce at odds. Could add value to exotics. BOSE (Nicholas Mannion) 7g By Flying Spur - Sirocco Mist (26:3-2-3): Ran 5-1/2 len 4th (55.0) Little Hope 1100m Emerald C3 Dec 15 then finished 1-1/2 len 4th (54.0) Heritage Star 1300m Mackay (Bm75) Jan 12.

CONSTANT CRAVING (C G Russell) 6g By Elusive Quality - Canadian Legacy (25:2-0-4): Was slowly away when 5-1/2 len 7th (54.0) Deb's Hope 1100m Rockhampton C2 Dec 6 then finished 4-1/4 len 4th (57.5) I'm Busy 1200m Sunshine Coast Plate C3 Jan 13. This trip generally see then was spelled after him out and others are preferred here. FORT CHAUVEL (I R Walker) 5g By General Nediym - Snippety Eve (32:1-4-4): Added to a consistent record when tightened for room and ran on fairly for 1-1/2 len, 1/2 len 3rd (55.0) Royal Kelly, Colla Voce 1200m Mt Gam- bier C1 dead trk Dec 9, then another honest run when came from the widest draw (12) and ran past a few late for 1-1/2 len 4th (53.5) Holly Holy 1400m Mt Gambier (59) dead trk Jan 20. Rarely far away but doesn't win too many. FIFTEEN SCHOONERS (Allan Peter- son) 6g By Musee D'Orsay - Strong On Dreams (13:1-1-1): Showed nothing to en- thuse about when 12-3/4 len last (55.0) Fly- ing Omission 1800m Burrumbeet (62) Jan 1, and not much better with 5-1/4 len 7th (54.0) Peace An Quiet 1550m Mt Gambier (68) dead trk Jan 20. Makes no appeal. CONIDEL (R C Bruhn) 5g By Bianconi - Del- trice (12:3-2-2): Favourite when always handy and battled on well for nk, 1-1/4 len 3rd (59.0) Delta Rho Sam, Gumnuts 1100m Penola (68) Jan 10, then led throughout for a smart len win (54.0) Gauss, Thirty Seven Megs 1200m Mt Gambier (60+) dead trk Jan 20. Should be prominent throughout from a nice draw. SWEET MUSIC (Andrew Noblet) 4g By Choisir - Blue Music (10:2-1-0): Spelled af- ter well back most of the trip and faced a Vet examination after 4-1/2 len 9th (59.0) The Shank 1100m Geelong Synthetic (68) June 22, then never threatened after hung out during race for 28-1/4 len last (58.5) Delago Sun 1100m Stony Creek (68) dead trk Dec 29. Sharpened up with 4th Peg Leg 1000m Yarra Glen barrier trial C2 dead trk Jan 21. Has struggled at most of six starts after a win M Valley 955m 3yo (78) Dec. 2011. Must still be considered. WEE MAC (J A McLean) 5g By Monde Bleu - Bisraami (37:3-12-8): Added to a series of consistent runs when came from near last on the turn for 1-1/2 len 2nd (57.0) Ready As Elle 955m M Valley (72) dead trk Dec 21, but then settled at the tail after jumped awkwardly and never likely with 8-1/2 len 7th (57.0) Loveyamadly 1000m Ballarat (Bm72) Jan 10. A bit easier here. Well worth another chance. EPONA PRINCESS (D K Weir) 4m By Fastnet Rock - Rathlin Island (12:2-0-3): Had nearly a year off before came from last on the turn for a 3rd Rosehill 1200m (70) then ran past a couple late for a close up 1-1/4 len 6th (58.0) Style 1200m Gosford (Metro) F&M (Bm70) Nov 21, and sent for a let-up after always well back in 10-1/4 len 10th (54.0) Dances On Stars 1350m R'hill (Bm80) Dec 8.

POPPY'S POND (Allan Peterson) 4m By Elvstroem - Sorenstam (13:1-0-1): Had a let-up before showed little to enthuse about with 9-1/2 len 6th (56.5) Ego's Better 1000m Burrumbeet (58) Jan 1, then led to the turn but struggled late with 4-1/2 len 5th (54.0) Mademoiselle Denon 1200m Mt Gambier (65) dead trk Jan 20. Place looks best. TOWAN (R G Symons) 3f By Racer's Edge - Nandaly (12:1-1-0): With the leaders at the turn but showed no late dash in 9-1/4 len last (51.0) Righteous Ruler 1207m Kilmore 3yo (68) dead trk Dec 18, then had some sup- port but struggled in a weak field for 4-3/4 len 4th (55.5) Ego's Better 1000m Burrum- beet (58) Jan 1.

Place looks best. SMASHING DOUBT (Shay Brown) 3g By Not A Single Doubt - Miss Anna Louise (5:1-0-1): Faced a Vet examination after a woeful effort when 14-3/4 len last (58.0) Silver- screen Queen 1000m Terang 3yo Mdn dead trk Dec 10, but bounced back to beat a small field with 2-3/4 len win (58.0) Jahan, Bonnie Glyn 1000m Penshurst 3yo Mdn Plate dead trk Dec 26.
