Has a bright future but he may find a few of these too sharp over 1100m. Prefer to wait until he gets over 1400m and further. CHARLIE BOY (G A Ryan) 2c By Myboy- charlie - Maritime (1:1-0-0): Camped off the speed and was left flat-footed when they sprinted but charged over the final furlong to post 1/2 len win (58.0) Windjammer, All The Talk 1100m R'hill 2yo Hcp dead trk Nov 17.

Primed for this with 3/4 len win Critical An- gel, All Cerise 900m R'hill barrier trial dead trk Feb 19. First-up. Couldn't have been more impressive on debut at Gosford (ATC Meeting).

THUMP (John Thompson) 2f By Red Ransom - Oomph (2:0-0-1): Settled in the second half of the field after missing the kick but made up good ground late 2-3/4 len, 1-3/4 len 3rd (55.5) Villa Verde, Purrific 1000m F'ton 7news Plate dead trk Nov 6. Got a long way back on return and worked past tired horses in the run home 12-1/2 len 7th (54.0) Overreach 1100m R'hill Widden Stakes dead trk Feb 16.

Won his first two starts as a 3yo then had a torrid run and was only de- feated narrowly by All Too Hard in the Caul- field Guineas before battling away gamely to run third in the Cox Plate. Impressed in recent trials. Clear top pick.

Given an easy time in 3/4 len, 6 len 3rd Landing, Pierro 1200m W Farm barrier trial dead trk Feb 15. First-up. Top class 3yo who has had excuses the two times he has tasted defeat.

Showed a nice turn of foot late when recording runaway 2 len win Secret Admirer, Colorado Claire 1000m R'wick barrier trial dead trk Feb 18. First-up.

Tasted de- feat for the first time when making his Aus- tralian debut here a fortnight ago. That run had merit but it's hard to see him beating some of these. ASHOKAN (J A O'Shea) 3c By More Than Ready - November Flight (9:1-1-1): Spelled after rolling along in front and fold- ing up 14 len 6th (56.5) All Too Hard 1600m C'field Caulfield Gneas Oct 13.

Thought he was entitled to hit the line a touch better when resuming here a fortnight ago. Fitter now and the added journey will assist but place is preferred against some of these.

Controlled the race from the front and kicked on strongly over the final furlong to hold off late challengers sht nk win (56.0) Fiveandahalfstar, Super Cool 1400m C'field Autumn Stakes Feb 9. Half-brother to Sepoy. Takes on some of the best 3yos in the county here but has fitness on his side and will get out and make his own luck on the speed. Not the roughest. PROVERB (Peter Snowden) 3g By Com- mands - More Haste (9:2-1-4): Lobbed along out the back and worked right to the line hd, 1-1/4 len 3rd (56.0) Lunar Rise, Tatra 1600m F'ton Carbine Club dead trk Nov 3.

Finished off well in 8 len 2nd Betrayal 897m R'hill barrier trial dead trk Feb 19. First-up. Promising staying type in good hands. Unlikely to test these first-up over 1400m but he will play a role in some quality races over the carnival. VADASHAN (Paul Messara) 3c By Red- oute's Choice - Vadsalina (2:2-0-0): Sat outside the speed and found plenty under pressure late to record lg nk win (59.0) Dwin- dle, Casiroll 1400m Kembla Grange Mdn Jan 19.

RED TRACER (C J Waller) 5m By Dane Shadow - Kisma (23:9-4-5): Spelled after taking up a forward position and tiring 3-1/2 len 10th (57.0) Appearance 1600m F'ton Myer Classic Nov 3.

Classy mare who appears to have returned in great order. Chased gamely to finish a close-up second in the Breeders Classic first-up. Looks a big chance of going one better here.
