RACE 1 1200m TWILIGHT ROYALE (Bjorn Baker) 2f By Testa Rossa - Royal Season (2:1-1-0): Camped behind the speed and knuckled down strongly in the straight to score 1/2 nk win (54.5) Fuerza, Sweet Kiss 1000m W Farm 2yo Stakes Dec 22. Positioned midfield and closed in well 1-1/4 len 2nd (55.5) Swing Vote 1000m W Farm 2yo Plate Jan 5. Fresh- ened. Won the Inglis Nursery in good style on debut then worked to the line well behind a subsequent stakes-placed galloper last start. Looks a leading contender. AUSSIES LOVE SPORT (Ms G Water- house) 2c By Redoute's Choice - Miss Jakeo (1:0-1-0): Camped behind the speed and chased all the way to the line for close-up sht nk 2nd (56.0) Dothraki 1200m C'bury 2yo Plate Dec 29. Freshened. Nar- rowly beaten by a highly rated colt on debut. Will be much better for that outing. Include amongst the better chances. DOWDSTOWN CHARLIE (David Payne) 2c: First start. By Myboycharlie - Rain- dane. Worked to the line steadily 4th El Sasso 900m R'hill barrier trial Jan 22. Cost $140,000. By boom first season sire from unraced dam who is a half-sister to stakes- placed filly Chinamora. This is her first foal to race. In good hands. Watch betting and parade rings. EL SASSO (G A Ryan) 2c: First start. By Snitzel - Sassy Peg. Led them up and kicked away for impressive 3 len win Can- brada, Rile 900m R'hill barrier trial Jan 22. Purchased for $75,000. Dam was a winner over 1280m. This is her first foal to race. Bowman sticks with him after partnering him in his two trials. Expect a forward showing. PARFURI (Peter Snowden) 2c: First start. By New Approach - Sizzie 'em. Camped behind the speed and was ridden out to score sht nk win Millars Crossing, Rutherglen 900m R'hill barrier trial (Mdn) Jan 22. Made $250,000 at the sales. Dam won two races over 1600m and 1800m. She has produced three winners from four foals to race including stakes-placed filly Miss With Attitude. Bred to appreciate further but he has drawn to re- ceive all the favours and stable normally hav- ing them firing early. Follow market moves. POWER ALERT (T G Sutherland) 2g By Alert - Gold Locket (2:1-0-0): Given a short break after being well ridden to score on debut 1/2 len win (56.0) Back To The Bar, Via Torrone 900m Albury 2&3yo Mdn Plate Oct 27. Settled out the back after a slow start and picked up some late ground 4-1/2 len 6th (53.0) Calming Influence 1100m R'hill 2yo Plate Jan 12. Wagga-trained gelding who probably should have finished closer here three weeks ago. Can run into a place at odds. EVERAGE (Craig Carmody) 2f By Zizou - Quipster (1:0-1-0): Lobbed along out the back and hit the line hard without threaten- ing runaway winner 5 len 2nd (55.5) Arabian Gold 1000m Canberra 2yo Hcp dead trk Jan 25. Ran home nicely on debut. More experi- enced now and the added journey will assist. Can place. VERGARA (A J Cummings) 2f: First start. By Snippetson - Graces Spirit. Set- tled handy and strode home 1-3/4 len 2nd Seductive Star 1050m R'wick barrier trial (Mdn) Jan 17. Dam retired as a maiden but is a half-sister to dual G1 winner Turffontein. Both her foals to race are maidens. Beauti- fully bred and has shown talent at the trials. Keep a close eye on betting. RACE 2 1200m NINTH LEGION (M, W & J Hawkes) 3c By Fastnet Rock - Xaar's Jewel (7:2-0-0): Set- tled worse than midfield and worked home through the field strongly 2-3/4 len 4th (56.5) Epaulette 1400m R'hill Golden Rose Sept 15. Spelled and switched stables after disap- pointing in 9-1/4 len 5th (56.5) It's A Dundeel 1800m R'wick Gloaming Stakes dead trk Sept 22. Positioned midfield and was ridden out to the line 4th Insuperable 900m R'hill barrier trial Jan 22. First-up. Formerly with Anthony Cummings. Talented colt who has been competitive in G1 events. Proven when fresh and isn't harshly treated at the weights after Guymer's claim. Rate highly. TAXMEIFYOUCAN (G D Hickman) 3g By Ad Valorem - Tis Hopeful (5:1-2-1): Put up a big performance to win a 2yo Hcp at War- wick Farm then spelled after being always well back in 5-1/2 len 8th (57.5) Relaxed And Happy 1200m C'bury 3yo (Bm75) dead trk Aug 4. Balanced up out the back and made up good ground when clear over the final fur- long 4 len 2nd (57.5) Happy Galaxy 1200m R'hill 3yo (Bm75) Jan 12. Ran very well here first-up behind subsequent stakes-winner Happy Galaxy. Won his only other second- up start. Leading contender. CENTREPET (G A Ryan) 3f By Snitzel - Miss Rainmaker (8:2-4-0): Sat outside the speed and fought all the way to the line 1/2 len 2nd (57.5) Young Fun 1100m Gosford 3yo C1 dead trk Dec 27. Strode along out- side the leader again and powered away from rivals halfway down the straight 1-1/4 len win (55.5) Chiaramonte, Never Dwell 1100m R'hill 3yo (Bm75) Jan 19. Racing well but she is yet to prove herself over this trip and she takes on stronger opposition here. Place. CHIARAMONTE (Peter Snowden) 3c By Redoute's Choice - Chiara (4:2-1-1): Given a break after sweeping home from midfield to score sht 1/2 hd win (58.0) Rastro, Furi- ous Jet 1000m Randwick-Kensington 3yo Rst0 Sept 23. Covered ground just off the speed first-up and battled away well 1-1/4 len 2nd (56.0) Centrepet 1100m R'hill 3yo (Bm75) Jan 19. Stuck on well first-up after racing wide throughout. Fitter now and the added journey will assist. Each way appeal. SECRET DELIGHT (David Payne) 3f By Encosta De Lago - Divine Secret (5:2-0- 2): Ridden for speed and battled away sol- idly 3-3/4 len, nose 3rd (55.5) She's A Fox, Sherocksmyworld 1100m W Farm 2yoF Hcp dead trk July 28. Sat behind the pace and held ground to the line behind two smart gal- lopers 3-1/4 len, hd 3rd (55.0) She's A Fox, Urquidez 1200m W Farm The Rosebud Aug 11. Had something in hand when recording nose win Gottabeyou, Yankee Hoedown 900m R'hill barrier trial Jan 22. First-up. Lo- cal filly who ran some nice races in her first campaign. Looked good when winning a re- cent trial here. Drawn perfectly and should give this a shake. ALMIGHTY CHARGE (Ms G Waterhouse) 3g By Charge Forward - Redoute's Fe- ver (8:1-3-1): Positioned midfield and was blocked for a run for most of the straight 6-3/4 len 5th (54.5) Happy Galaxy 1200m R'hill 3yo (Bm75) Jan 12. Took up the run- ning and was only claimed late 1/2 len 2nd (54.0) Zin Zan Eddie 1300m W Farm 3yo (Bm75) Jan 26. Had no luck here two starts back then pressed forward and battled away gamely at Warwick Farm last Saturday. Can give a sight on the speed again. GOLD EPONA (K A Lees) 3f By Stratum - Gold Ransom (6:2-2-1): Sat back and finished off well when resuming 1/2 len, lg nk 3rd (56.0) Young Fun, Centrepet 1100m Gosford 3yo C1 dead trk Dec 27. Ridden pa- tiently and stormed over the top of her rivals late lg nk win (54.0) Just Another, Oogy Sun 1200m Wyong (Metro) F&M Rst0 Jan 16. Right up in grade now and her racing pattern is to get well back but she is showing prom- ise and will be the one hitting the line hard. ADABOY ROSS (C Karakatsanis) 3g By Ad Valorem - Rosalba (1:1-0-0): Charged home from the tail to kick off career on win- ning note 3/4 len win (55.5) Zaminga, Epho- ral 1000m Kembla Grange Mdn Plate Jan 19. Raced greenly in the straight on debut but still managed to round up his rivals com- fortably. Hard to fault but he steps right up in grade now. Prefer to see in this company. RACE 3 1400m SHEROCKSMYWORLD (Ms G Water- house) 3f By Fastnet Rock - Solvini (9:2- 3-1): Spelled after settling behind the pace and tiring badly 15-3/4 len last (54.0) Ne- chita 1200m W Farm Silver Shadow Aug 25. Ridden for speed but was no match late on return 5-3/4 len last (54.5) Hadronica 1100m R'hill F&M (Bm75) Jan 12. Didn't fire a shot when resuming here three weeks ago. Won't find this any easier. Hard to recommend. ROYAL DESCENT (C J Waller) 3f By Re- doute's Choice - Mulan Princess (2:2-0- 0): Positioned midfield and picked up rivals easily in the straight to score dominant 2-1/2 len win (56.0) Ramu River, Pretends 1200m C'bury 3yoF Mdn Plate Dec 21. Settled handy and exploded away halfway down the straight 2-3/4 len win (55.0) Fine Bubbles, Queen's Elect 1400m R'hill 3yoF (Bm75) Jan 12. Well bred filly whose two wins to date have been outstanding. Has to contend with a wide gate here but she looks likely to keep progressing. HOYBELL (C J Waller) 3f By Encosta De Lago - Satinka (2:2-0-0): Ridden cold and powered through the field late to record 1/2 len win (55.5) Five Rocks, Wind Bender 1100m C'bury 3yoF Mdn Sept 5. Sat behind the speed and knuckled down strongly late to share the spoils dh win (57.0) Perdicaris, King Cobia 1400m Randwick-Kensington 3yo (Bm67) Sept 23. Wasn't asked to do much in 8th Secret Delight 900m R'hill bar- rier trial Jan 22. First-up. Unbeaten filly who has been primed for this first-up assignment with two trials. This is her toughest test to date but she has drawn perfectly and lead- ing hoop has been engaged. Worth thought. UNIMPEACHABLE (Joseph Pride) 3f By Bradbury's Luck - Dubious Affair (2:1- 1-0): Closed in well from midfield on debut len 2nd (55.5) Pleiades 1200m Wyong Mdn Plate Jan 3. Given time to balance up and unwound a strong finishing burst to get up in the last couple of bounds sht hd win (59.0) Perfect Tempo, Champagnelifestyle 1400m Kembla Grange (Metro) 3yoF Mdn dead trk Jan 23. Looked in trouble at the 600m at Kembla (ATC Meeting) last start but really motored over the final 200m. Stable have a very good opinion of her. Expect her to give this a shake. AL NOVA (R N Godbolt) 3f By Al Samer - Carnova (12:3-3-4): Ridden for speed and gave her all in the run home 1/2 len, 1/2 nk 3rd (53.0) Fourtracks Forkids, Dream Empress 1200m Newcastle (Metro) 3yoF Rst0 Jan 2. Pressed forward and went down fighting again sht hd 2nd (56.5) Runs Deep 1200m Tamworth (Bm65) Jan 20. Comes into this in good form and she gets in light but the 1400m looks a big query in this company. GREAT DANSAAR (Bjorn Baker) 3f By Choisir - Condesaar (7:2-0-1): Caught off the track midfield but still managed to overpower rivals 1-1/2 len win (55.0) Windsurfer, Foreign News 1200m Kembla Grange (Bm60) Jan 5. Camped outside the speed and battled away steadily 4-1/4 len 4th (55.5) Alesteem 1400m Kembla Grange (Metro) F&M (Bm68) dead trk Jan 23. Racing well this time in but she runs into some promising fillies here. Place claims. DIAMOND DRILLE (Ms G Waterhouse) 3f By Al Maher - Damzelle Pedrille (2:1-0-0): Sat outside the speed and found plenty under pressure late to score narrow nk win (56.5) Star Charge, Forever Faithful 1100m Gosford F&M Mdn Plate Dec 31. Tracked the speed and boxed on solidly 1-1/2 len 6th (54.0) Campania 1500m R'hill 3yo (Bm74) Jan 19. Scored a tough win on debut at Gosford then just battled here last start after box-seating. Won't find this any easier. Prefer others. FINE BUBBLES (K A Lees) 3f By Casino Prince - Pekalan (3:1-1-0): Enjoyed a cosy run behind the pace and powered away from rivals in the straight 2-1/2 len win (55.5) Chain Of Events, Casino Queen 1300m Scone Mdn Plate Dec 29 then sent to town and closed in well from midfield 2-3/4 len 2nd (52.0) Royal Descent 1400m R'hill 3yoF (Bm75) Jan 12. Broke her maiden in dominant style first-up at Scone then worked home well behind Royal Descent here three weeks ago. Worth something each way. FOURTRACKS FORKIDS (Craig Carmody) 3f By Dane Shadow - Empire Dancer (4:1- 0-0): Sat back and flew down the outside for breakthrough 1/2 len win (55.5) Dream Empress, Al Nova 1200m Newcastle (Metro) 3yoF Rst0 Jan 2. Got back after an awkward beginning and made up some late ground 3-1/4 len 5th (54.0) Royal Descent 1400m R'hill 3yoF (Bm75) Jan 12. Won well at New- castle (ATC Meeting) two starts back then got back in a slowly run race last start and worked home solidly. One for the multiples. DOLPHUS (A J Cummings) 3f By Dylan Thomas - Long Ball (7:0-1-1): Sent to the paddock after being always well back in 8-3/4 len last (56.0) Longport 1500m R'wick Tea Rose Stakes Sept 22. Box-seated and battled away first-up 3 len 4th (54.0) Royal Descent 1400m R'hill 3yoF (Bm75) Jan 12. Did enough when resuming here three weeks ago. Fitter now and is another who is capable of adding value into the exotics. HEAVEN BENEATH (R J Quinton) 3f By More Than Ready - Moon Dragon (5:1-0-0): Un- wound a strong run from the back 5-1/2 len 4th (55.5) Pendolin 1600m Gosford Mdn Plate Dec 31. Ridden patiently and charged to the line for runaway 2 len win (54.0) Reminiscing, Manda- long Sun 1400m Nowra Mdn Jan 15. Looked the goods when winning at Nowra last start but the horse she beat has since been safely held in a Wyong maiden. Looks tested here. RACE 4 1500m ABITOFADO (B A Gentle) 8g By Black Tuxe- do - Fleet Dream (62:9-9-11): Enjoyed all the favours during 5-1/4 len 8th (56.0) Magnifique Soleil 1700m Warrnambool Open Hcp dead trk May 1. Sent to the paddock and switched stables after weakening off the speed 7-1/2 len 9th (54.0) Dance With Her 2350m War- rnambool Warrnambool Cup heavy trk May 3. Prepared for return with 4th So Symbolic 1200m R'wick barrier trial Jan 4. First-up. Hav- ing first start for local stable. Returning from lengthy break. Likely to need more time. DISCIPLE (C J Waller) 4g By God's Own - Myrrh (13:3-4-3): Enjoyed a good trip behind the speed and sprinted fast once clear in the straight 2 len win (57.0) San Zaim, Triple Six 1600m W Farm (Bm75) Dec 22. Tracked the leaders and knuckled down well to take a nar- row lead halfway down the straight but was edged out late hd 2nd (57.0) Circle Of Power 1600m W Farm (Bm80) Jan 5. Going great guns this campaign. Drawn perfectly and if anything will find this a touch easier than what he has been contesting of late. Take beating. ZEDLION (J C Coyle) 5g By Lion Heart - Zedora (30:5-5-5): Went down narrowly on return at Canterbury then found the line well from midfield 2-1/2 len 4th (57.0) Skip Town 1200m R'hill (Bm80) Jan 12. Caught wide on the speed but still managed to find the line strongly and finish close-up lg nk 2nd (54.0) War Charm 1400m W Farm (Bm80) Jan 26. Experienced gelding who has returned in outstanding order. Brave in defeat at War- wick Farm last Saturday when caught three and four wide throughout. Big threat here if the run last Saturday didn't take too much out of him. AL'S GOLD (F G Hood) 5g By Al Jaasi - Olympic Bid (41:7-3-3): Enjoyed a cosy run behind the speed but couldn't go with them when they quickened 3-1/2 len 6th (56.0) Kukri 1900m R'hill (Bm80) Jan 12. Strode along midfield and couldn't come on again 2-1/2 len 7th (54.0) Kukri 2000m R'hill (Bm83) Jan 19. Hasn't been at his best of late but he enjoys racing here and can bob up when you least expect it. One for the multiples.

Returned to form at Kembla (ATC Meeting) last start. Has a good overall record and will get every chance here from the inside gate. Each way appeal.
