1. ASSERTIVE PRINCE runs in the lowest class now and has been tracked. ELEGANT STAR has been tracked fine by shoban who rides sparingly nowadays, the horse has not been tried in winters.

ELEGANT STAR (2)-WIN
2. PERFECT GOLDEN ERA is the best performed of the lot, had run 5th to ROYAL SCEPTRE, the half brother to good type BLAZING TOUCH may be tried by the trainer who is of the worst kind. RIVER DANCE is half sister to classic SOUTHERN EMPEROR and the costly horse has tracked well and will run well. SANG ROYAL is a top bred and full sister to the current champion horse DESERT GOD, runs so far show her to be an ordinary one and the trainer has not tracked her openly. TARINI has a weak rider but she also deserves a mention as half sister to the good black type horse KOHINOOR WISH.
PERFECT GOLDEN ERA(3)/ SANG ROYAL(9)-PLACE.
