1. STAR OF DESIRE had beaten some much better opponents than here in last run, hence has a chance even though there is no evident track. ARTHUR has not won for long, is showing some keen works, has a try rider, may run well on backing. ENCOURAGER has the rider repeating after a hard fought win. OUR COMMANDER has a weak chance specially with the non performing jockey. FASHION FLAME had won at this level with this rider, last run was encouraging.ORDERED STEPS has no tracks, may run well in this bunch.
FASHION FLAME-ARTHUR-OUR COMMANDER.
2. BLACK DRAGON who likes to lead from front has a chance to place with the experienced rider. CHARM AND DREAM is looking to improve, can place again. LAKE EMERALD has changed owner and has been sharpened up by the new trainer, has a fly in rider. GUAPO has handicap in favor, may strike. KIR ROYALE is from a weak sire and a bad stable, should not place.
GUAPO- LAKE EMERALD- CHARM AND DREAM.
3. GALWAY GIRL appears to have come to hand, tracks are good and may go all the way. JEYEMS PRIDE has a better rider and may run well. SIVANTA has early speed to look for places again. GOLDEN CRUISE and ONE TO NOTE have done fairly well last time to be in consideration for placing.
GALWAY GIRL-JEYEMS PRIDE-GOLDEN CRUISE.
4. SHAKA ZULU has run with better class and has the rider to force the issue over ideal distance. AL ATTATURK runs on demotion and has tracked well. TRUST ME BOY finished on from way back and won, has plenty of scope to handle the penalty and come off with another fine performance. STRIVE AND SERVE has low weights to try and fight for places.
SHAKA ZULU-TRUST ME BOY-SRIVE AND SERVE.
5. BETTER THAN EVER has worked well but lacks a race run. AMAZON BAY has the rider but the owner and the trainer are both unreliable, last run was bad, looks to have been a deliberate ploy. KOHINOOR GLAMOUR had caught the eye with a scintillating run when he last ran, has been waited with but not seen much in morning tracks. FIORITTA who won well may show improvement, again no tracks. NERON is being prepared for getting into money, was kept wide all through.ICE PICK WILLIE may run a forward race at low weights.
AMAZON BAY-FIORITTA-BETTER THAN EVER.
6. SHIVALIK STAR looks good on comparison based on previous runs and has been in pink condition as seen in works. ROCK WITH U is a genuine class sprinter and has an outside chance , looks in fine fettle. WHISPERING GALLERY has good speed and goes at better terms than last time, will fight out. INVINCIBLE PRINCE has always been a 1400 m type, may struggle in sprint. TOP SPOT is on the up but company is classy for the youngster.
SHIVALIK STAR-WHISPERING GALLERY-ROCK WITH U.
7. BEYOND THANKFUL has performed reasonably well in terms races to command attention here, has the rider for the job. VIOLENT STORM is more comfortable over a sprint, may handle the extra yards. SUMMER SUN is knocking for a win, last effort was over extended trip. INDIAN ROYALTY was an eye catching winner who is likely to do well at low weights.
BEYOND THANKFUL-SUMMER SUN-VIOLENT STORM.
8. FINK may command respect for the awesome unbeatable record and has the rating to be considered and has looked in pink of conditions in works but he meets a serious challenge from WAR COMMAND who has raced with the prime horses in western India. PBMM is a race which has always provided as a bench mark in Indian classics and the good 3rd there puts him as a top contender at this centre.
9. PEPPR has a tough job to beat the penalty despite the rider. THE ALCHEMIST is a failed favorite with a better rider now. ROSIES DREAM is well placed on handicap after the last fine effort.STONE WARRIOR has a weak rider, has been on fringes of performing
ROSIES DREAM-PEPPR- THE ALCHEMIST.
10. PAMUSHANA needs to take a good jump, has a chance to win on preparation and performance.ACE PRINCESS has good early speed, may run away in this class. VIRTUOSO is tracking fine, may place. COFFEE TIME has an allowance rider and form. HERCULEAN won comfortably and has allowance rider for another fling.
