Was doing his best work late in 3 len 2nd Glencadam Gold 1200m R'wick barrier trial dead trk Feb 1. First-up.

Caught the eye late in 1-3/4 len 2nd More Joyous 1000m R'wick barrier trial dead trk Feb 25. First-up.

SCREAM MACHINE (J C Coyle) 4g By Ex- cites - Sevillano (16:4-2-5): Gave them all a start and rounded them up sht nk win (56.0) Brightest, Lucripetous 2000m R'hill (Bm85) Dec 8.

HAVANA REY (Bjorn Baker) 4g By King Cugat - Dydeedoe (19:7-3-1): Disappointed when a heavily backed favourite here then tracked the pace and let down well to re- cord comfortable 1-1/2 len win (54.0) Sin- gle, Fast Clip 1600m W Farm Hcp Feb 9. Received a soft run behind the pace again and proved far too strong late 2-1/4 len win (58.5) Shamardani, Palasport 1600m W Farm (Bm95) heavy trk Feb 23.

Given time to balance up and found the line strongly 3/4 len 2nd (54.0) Skytrain 1100m C'bury C'bury Classic Jan 25. Freshened. Racing well in Listed com- pany of late. Drawn ideally and seems to ap- preciate racing here. Take beating. JEST CREWSIN' (Ms J Bowen) 7g By Brahms - Jester Crew (56:9-5-8): Ran third when resuming in the Listed Canterbury Classic then tracked the speed but couldn't go with them when the pressure went on 3-1/4 len 8th (58.5) Happy Galaxy 1200m W Farm Expressway Stks Feb 9. Battled away solidly in the heavy ground 5-1/4 len 5th (54.0) Skytrain 1200m W Farm South- ern Cross heavy trk Feb 23. Hasn't been disgraced in Group races recently. Nicely weighted and the drop back to 1100m will suit. Keep safe. EMOTIONAL CIRCUS (K A Lees) 4m By Elusive Quality - Cirque Du Soleil (13:4- 0-2): Got a long way back and stormed home over the final furlong to finish in the money len, hd 3rd (56.5) Red Tracer, Satin Shoes 1200m R'wick Premiere Stakes Oct 6.

Strips fitter for 1-3/4 len, hd 3rd Hidden War- rior, Excellent Point 800m Wyong barrier trial dead trk Feb 22. First-up. Having first start for Kris Lees. Flies when fresh and over this trip. Will give away a start but she should be charging at them late. SOCIAL RANK (P M Perry) 5g By Stratum - Leonina (19:7-0-4): Showed good speed first-up but was overpowered by some smart gallopers late 3-1/4 len 5th (54.0) Mrs Onassis 1100m R'hill Starlight Stks Aug 18. Bled during race but still managed to score all-the-way 1-1/4 len win (56.5) California Storm, Buckmoore 900m Newcastle Open Hcp Sept 19. Looked good when record- ing 1/2 hd win Mighty Obvious, Meghalaya 1000m Wyong barrier trial dead trk Feb 22. First-up. Normally performs well when fresh but best form is over 1000m and shorter. Place preferred in this company over 1100m. AEROBATICS (Peter Snowden) 4m By Exceed And Excel - Grilse (18:3-2-2): Had plenty go against during 4-1/4 len 8th (58.5) Honey Flower 1200m Geelong F&M Oct 24.

Darley mare who had little luck towards the end of her last campaign. Can run a race at odds. DIDNTCOSTALOT (M C Conners) 4g By Danerich - Costi (14:4-3-0): Camped out- side the speed and fought all the way to the line len 2nd (54.0) Welkom Gold 1100m R'hill Hcp Nov 3. Caught three wide on the pace and only felt the pinch late first-up 3-1/2 len 7th (54.0) Skytrain 1100m C'bury C'bury Classic Jan 25. Kept ticking over with easy 3-3/4 len win Decision Time, Hypurr 803m W Farm barrier trial dead trk Feb 15. Freshened. Not much went his way when re- suming in the Canterbury Classic last start. Since trialled impressively. Will press forward and make his presence felt. NEW BEGINNING (John Thompson) 6m By Reset - Gypsy Girl (15:6-1-0): Kept finding the line gamely from the second half of the field 2 len 4th (56.5) Arinosa 1400m F'ton Greys Plate-89 Nov 8. Given a break after grinding home 2-1/2 len 7th (56.0) Cabernet 1500m Sandown-Hillside Sum- moned Stakes Nov 17. Worked home late 4th Liechtenstein 740m R'wick barrier trial dead trk Feb 18. First-up. Has won three of four first-up runs but my find the 1100m too sharp in this grade. EARNEST ERNEST (Joseph Pride) 7g By Sandtrap - Our Private Dancer (24:4-9- 3): Finished off soundly with the big weight 2-3/4 len 4th (59.0) California Storm 1100m R'hill (Bm80) Jan 19 then flashed home from the back for dominant len win (56.0) Norma Betty's Boy, Irish Jig 1200m W Farm (Bm85) Jan 26. Freshened. Is hard to catch and this grade should test him. Prefer others. HURRARA (G L Frazer) 5g By Hussonet - Emmaagh (26:6-4-3): Sent for a spell after 6-3/4 len 10th (59.0) Bello 1400m W Farm (Bm85) dead trk July 28. Weakened off the pace when resuming 2-3/4 len 6th (58.5) Happy Galaxy 1200m W Farm Expressway Stks Feb 9. Freshened. Wasn't disgraced in the Expressway Stakes first-up. Better for that outing and is much better suited back to handicap conditions. One at odds. KIRINATA (P M Perry) 5g By Stratum - Salsify (35:7-3-2): Worked home from the back without threatening 3-1/2 len 7th (54.0) Whitlam 1100m R'hill (Bm84) heavy trk Feb 2.
