impressive 1¼ len win (56.5) Excellent Point,

and was never a threat 12¾ len 9th (59.0) Miss
Marielle 2000m R'wick Craven Plate slow track

len 5th (54.5) Kossack 2200m W Farm (Bm80)

add some value into the exotics if she gets a
drier surface here.

and was never a winning hope in 11¼ len 7th

for smart filly ½ len win (52.0) Messenger, Third

as a hot favourite and didn't let favourite
backers down ½ len win (56.0) Cumberland,

R'hill Hcp slow track Oct 10. Won the 2006
Spring Champion stakes and placed in the

1. SPURUSON (R E Ollerton) 8g By Fly-
ing Spur - Tamari (36:6-7-5): Resumed from
lengthy break with 4¼ len 6th (58.5) Flush-

Prepared for this with sht ½ hd, ½ len 3rd By
Jeeves, Gemma's Boy 800m Newcastle bar-
rier trial Sept 28. First-up. Talented sprinter
who has obviously had a couple of problems
lately. Fitter for two trials and normally fires
when fresh. Wary.
2. EGO'S DARE (G A Ryan) 5g By Hus-
sonet - Almond Essence (13:4-2-1): Ridden
patiently and rattled home down the centre
of the track to record lg nk win (56.5) Speed
Dubai, Beaded 1200m R'wick (91) Sept 26.
Freshened. Changed tactics last start and the
gamble payed off. Drop back in trip is no con-
cern. Should fight out the finish again.
3. SPIRILINA (P M Farrell) 6g By Sir Lau-
rence - Proudest Lady (41:6-8-8): Sat on the
pace and dashed clear to post 2 len win (57.5)
Goldrossa, Ballymorrough 900m Newcastle
(Bm80) slow track Oct 3. Honest campaigner
who appreciated the cut out of the ground last
start. Yet to win past 1000m. Should find a
couple of these strong over 1100m.
4. ALLERVITE (G Portelli) 5g By Choisir
- Hit And Run (24:6-2-4): Allowed to dictate
in front with the light weight and proved too
nippy when len winner (53.0) Kenny's World,
Savage Sevens 1200m W Farm Wltr heavy
track Oct 5. Won well last start and boasts an
impressive record over this trip. Should push
forward and give a sight. Any rain is a bonus.
5. BORSHA'S MARK (L D Kelly) 5g By Fal-
velon - Elite Warrior (20:6-3-5): Found the front
but didn't finish off 2¾ len 4th (57.5) Pins On
Parade 1200m D'ben Plate C6 Aug 29. Let-up.
Races best when kept fresh but he has been
beaten in easier races of late. Place appears

after struggling home for 9½ len 11th (53.0)
Strat's Flyer 1200m Gosford Takeover Target
heavy track June 24. First-up. Classy sprinter
who struggled in the bog track at Gosford last
start. Comes to hand quickly. Forward show-
7. JEST CREWSIN' (Ms J Bowen) 4g By
Brahms - Jester Crew (20:6-3-2): Thrown in
the deep end but was well held for 11 len 8th
(54.0) Gold Trail 1100m R'wick The Shorts
heavy track Oct 3. Beat a classy sprinter at
Newcastle but was then never a threat in the
Shorts. This assignment looks more suitable.
8. EMPIRE PLACE (David Payne) 4g By
Stravinsky - Tajrebah (13:3-2-2): Fought on
bravely again for lg hd 2nd (57.0) Conquering
Queen 1100m R'hill (Bm80) slow track Oct 10.
Speedy gelding who puts himself in the race
and keep fighting on. Will be in it for a long

Altezza (95:15-11-12): Freshened after average
3¼ len 9th (56.5) Beyond Expectation 1200m

has been racing well of late but it would be a
surprise to see him win this.
10. RELATED (J B Cummings) 4h By Elu-
sive Quality - Cousins (7:1-1-1): Settled just
off the pace and pulled clear to record ½ len
win (55.0) Rollins, The Astronomer 1400m
Hawkesbury H'bury Guineas May 9. Prepared
for this with sht hd win Setgo, Davala 740m
R'wick barrier trial slow track Oct 9. First-up.
Wound up by two recent trials. Is better suited
over slightly further but he cannot be underes-
timated with the light weight.
11. ZAROCK (G Portelli) 4m By Rock Of Gi-
braltar - Zapeace (9:3-1-0): Dropped in grade
and appeared to have her chance in 1½ len
4th (53.0) Beaded 1200m R'hill F&M (Bm90)
slow track Oct 10. Best runs have come when
she has been able to dictate in front. Hard to
see her getting her own way up front here.
12. ALTITUDE (Peter Snowden) 4m By
Danzero - Highest (13:2-3-1): Heavily backed
when resuming but was well held for 1¾ len
5th (55.5) Danza Doll 1100m C'bury F&M Hcp-

would need to find many lengths in order to

and did his best work late in 1½ len 6th (56.5)

dead track June 13. Prepared for this with 5
len 2nd Youthful Jack 900m R'hill barrier trial

won a race for over three years.
3. INNINGS (R T Leemon) 7g By Over -

awkwardly but finished off for 3 len 8th (53.0)

more positively for nk, nk 3rd (54.0) Centen-
nial Park, Emperator 1400m R'hill Hcp slow

5. EMPEROR BONAPARTE (David Payne)
4g By Montjeu - Endless Joy (20:3-3-2): Won
the Premier's Cup in impressive style before
disappointing in 3 len 7th (55.0) Ready To Lift

at home in the heavy conditions when 8¾
len 11th (54.0) Rock Kingdom 1600m R'wick
Epsom Hcp heavy track Oct 3. Had all the
favours in the Kingston Town but didn't fin-
ish off before being outclassed in the Epsom.
Give another chance in this grade if the rain
6. EMPERATOR (G A Rogerson) 5g By Re-
doute's Choice - Zamsong (19:4-5-0): Settled
back and was never a threat in 6¾ len 10th

Hcp Sept 5. Sat outside the leader and kept
kicking on for nk 2nd (54.0) Centennial Park
1400m R'hill Hcp slow track Oct 10. Nearly
pulled off a big upset over this track/distance
last start. Boasts an impressive record over
this trip and comes right into calculations if he
gets a soft track.
7. I'VE GOT TALENT (G H Walter) 5g By
Danehill Dancer - Swing Again (18:6-1-3): Had
a couple of things go against him during 2¾

Scone Cup May 15. Settled last but flew
home late for lg hd, ½ nk 3rd (59.0) Conquer-
ing Queen, Empire Place 1100m R'hill (Bm80)
slow track Oct 10. Recorded some impressive
final sectionals when resuming at Rosehill last
start. Can take up a more prominent position
over this trip and drops 5kgs in the weights.
Plenty to like.
8. PARFUMIER (P & W Webster) 7g By
Belong To Me - Patou (35:6-4-2): Was doing
his best work late in ¾ len 6th (53.0) Hadaaf
1400m R'hill Civic Stakes slow track July 4.
Put away after average 5¼ len 6th (53.0)

track July 18. Will take improvement out of 3
len 2nd Above Perfection 1050m R'wick bar-
rier trial slow track Oct 9. First-up. Has won
over this track/distance but normally takes a
couple of runs to find his best. Later.
9. ROYAL ESPRIT (M, W & J Hawkes) 5h
By Bel Esprit - Floribunda (23:5-3-3): Had a
couple of things go against him when 3 len

26. Appeared to have his chance but couldn't
finish off 1¾ len 7th (54.0) Centennial Park
1400m R'hill Hcp slow track Oct 10. Safely
held when having his first start over 1400m
last start. Others make stronger appeal.
10. RHYNO CHASER (Ms W Ings) 4g By
Catcher In The Rye - Surfari (15:2-1-1): Slowly
away and was never a factor when resuming in
5¾ len 12th (59.0) Beyond Expectation 1200m
R'hill (86) Sept 19. Missed the kick again and
never threat during 3¾ len last (54.0) Centen-
nial Park 1400m R'hill Hcp slow track Oct
10. Won two Listed races in his 3yo year but
hasn't been able to recapture that form since.
Prepared to risk.
11. VINTAGE ROCK (Ms B Joseph) 6m
By Thunder Gulch - Rock Review (24:6-7-2):
Landed in a lovely spot and battled on gamely
for lg nk, ½ hd 3rd (53.0) Blutigeroo, Imvula
2000m Canberra Cup Nov 30. Resumed in
good order with lg hd 2nd (58.0) Fast Bullet
1200m Canberra Open Hcp Sept 18. Kept
ticking over with 3 len win Onemoretime, Iron
Pegasus 900m Canberra barrier trial Oct 17.
Honest mare who hit the line well over a un-
suitable distance when resuming at Canberra
last start. Tougher here but should be right in
the mix if she gets a firm surface.
12. BACCHANAL WOMAN (K R Dryden)
6m By Encosta De Lago - M'lady Fonteyn
(25:7-1-3): Vetted and found to have suffered
injury during 9¼ len last (56.0) Altered Boy

all the favours but was no match when 5½ len
6th (56.5) Moti 1400m R'wick Toy Show Qlty
Aug 22. Let-up. Drops in grade and record
says she is better suited at Rosehill. Gets in
well at the weights. Expect improvement.
13. CULLEN CASTLE (G K White) 5g By
Danewin - Lady Secola (20:5-3-3): Drifted
back early and worked home well for 2¼
len 7th (54.0) McClintock 1400m R'wick Bill
Ritchie Sept 26. Thrown in the deep end and
was totally outclassed 18¼ len last (54.0) Rock
Kingdom 1600m R'wick Epsom Hcp heavy
track Oct 3. Sent around at big odds in the Ep-

is more suitable.
14. DELAGO STAR (Ms K Waugh) 6g By
Encosta De Lago - Star Of The Stud (26:7-4-
3): Settled last and worked home for 5¼ len
5th (55.5) Allervite 1200m W Farm Wltr dead
track Sept 8. Disappointed when hot favour-
ite in 2¾ len 8th (56.5) Tora Tora Tora 1600m
Dubbo Dubbo Cup Sept 20. Freshened. Races
best when kept fresh but he is struggling for
form of late. Hard to recommend.
15. XAVIER (J B Cummings) 5g By King
Cugat - Vintage Power (19:5-0-2): Always near
the tail when 8 len 14th (53.5) Masked Assas-
sin 1400m C'field Victoria Hcp dead track April
11. Sent for a well earned break following lack-
lustre 9¾ len last (53.0) Chasm 1610m F'ton
Auckland R.C. April 25. Fitter for three trials,
the most recent 5th Herculian Prince 1050m
R'wick barrier trial slow track Oct 9. First-up.
Yet to show anything when fresh. Capable on
his day but is likely to need more time.
