1. Trainer Caddy plans for the kill and waits for long to get the right race for launching his horses mostly in sprints and has been very successful in doing so. SUMMER SKY has not been pressurized so far in 3 outings and has now been tracked and fed, should be running a forward race, breeding is mediocre. The one who is meriting attention lately is the son of the trainer Warren , and since he is gaining in confidence with each win, the Narredu family has a challenger for Yash, THEJAGUAR should be the one to beat, alas he has a short fuse but the handicap is in favor, may last out. YOU’RE SCINTILLATING is bound to be backed with the good rider at low weights, horse is coming up well in works. BIG COPPER PENNY from a weak stable may also pitch in, has won a sprint in winters.
THEJAGUAR-SUMMER SKY-YOU’RE SCINTILLATING.
2. FATAL ATTRACTION who is a decent got abroad had run well in Mumbai and is looking fluent in works and should be the favorite over this distance. SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT has a fair pedigree, the half sister to CARPE DIEM had run an encouraging race and has services of the best rider. SAGRADA has been tracking well to improve upon last run. The trainer appears to be taking his time with the well bred STARRY MOMENT, full brother to AMBITIOUS REWARD, may improve upon last bad run.
FATAL ATTRACTION-SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT-SAGRADA.
3. JOLIE is a speedy one with a try rookie, last run was easy. COLOUR OF GOLD won authoritatively and has been well penalised, retains form in works. MANTRA was not a serious tryer last time, has sparkled in works. VIGOROUS ran a weak race, gets a strong rider now. CHERRY HINTON has a work jockey after a try run, negative tactics of the trainer.
MANTRA-COLOUR OF GOLD-JOLIE.
4. MYSTIC MUSIC who is on the up has a tough job at this handicap, retains form though with some fine tracks. SALT OF THE EARTH is speedy in tracks. GLITTERING won well but has stepped into tough company. SCHIOVANE ran much below par in Fillies Trials, looks fit. ALERIO won warding off, has a fighting chance again.
5. ARROGANT APPROACH could not match up with an aged horse in last run while conceding weight, has trained on to be in the fight once again. AMAZING REDD has been in forward form but why this distance? MADDOX has come down by a load and this unpredictable one can be the up setter of the day. SHAKA ZULU who showed improvement with a belated finish in last run has switched over to a new stable from a lazy trainer’s yard.
MADDOX-ARROGANT APPROACH-SHAKA ZULU.
6. ANECDOTE is well bred for sprints but last win was a stretching one, may be favored to win with the striking rookie. Ignore ANDINA and EVALINA here, both are ordinary. FRUIT PRINCE is from a scheming trainer , has been kept away from the rush in both the runs, can easily beat this lot on a sincere try, he had beaten TEMUJIN who easily beat ANECDOTE in winters. OYE COME VA is yet to come to hand. MYSTIC SHADOW is pleasing in works and has low weights.
FRUIT PRINCE-ANECDOTE-MYSTICAL SHADOW.
7. Gowda is a pathetic trainer and with poor record keeps getting horses to train. MICKY MOUSE was unnecessarily touted as a good thing and sunk in with out a fight last time, now he pitches in the badly managed BEAUTY IS TRUTH also, both have little chance on handicap. Bottom weighted SANTA ANA who was covering yards in last 200 metres of last race is the one who should get the mile. AZETIC STAR is more of a sprinter and an unreliable one. STIMULATE and ARCTIC ATTRACTION have attracted sizeable penalty for last runaway wins, the later had beaten SANTA ANA in winters and will look to do so again.
SANTA ANA-ARTIC ATTRACTION-MICKY MOUSE.
