1. SANGOMA has been tried over wrong longer distance, today it is going at appropriate distance and has a good jockey. RACING CHENAB is only a place hopeful. TEMPTATION has a poor rider. TRIBAL WARRIOR is an aged game horse who is at a reasonable handicap.
2. SILENCE PRESENCE caught the eye in his last run. OUR EXCELLENCE has been plagued with problems, though the tracks are suggestive of fitness, it would be better to avoid him for betting. ARKHOS is a well bred who can win if allowed by connections.
3. SAMARKHAND is a game horse belonging to a lesser fancied stable. ORPHEUS has been very well prepared. ROMANTIC SCENE won well and would be looking to repeat. ROCKEFELLAR may run well.
4. SET ALIGHT appears cut above the others. AURORA AUREALIS led at a blinding speed in multi million, may not stay. GLEAMING SKY was an easy winner who is in fine form. SECRET GLORY ran green last time, can do better.
SET ALIGHT-GLEAMING SKY-AURORA AUREALIS
5. COVENANT has tremendous speed, the weights are a worry. ALMARINA is back to her pet distance, she is in fine form. DESERT SKY has won both starts well. STELLAR AFFAIR lost due to poor jockeyship, may make amends.
ALMARINA-DESERT SKY-STELLAR AFFAIR
6. RED ROMEO is the best horse in this age group, he lost the million due to a tactical error. ARKTOUROS surprised all by running away in a good set up at good odds .BLUE RAY should like the step up in distance. FLAMING ACE was an impressive winner. JUVENTUS was fighting 4th in multi million.
RED ROMEO-JUVENTUS-FLAMING ACE
7. HONEY DAY has a top jockey. Can pull it off in this weak set up. REFUSE TO BEND is in fine form. EKOFISK was fighting to win in a close finish last time. ROYAL AGENDA is a problem horse who may not be racing fit.
HONEY DAY-REFUSE TO BEND-EKOFISK
8. RISING EMPEROR has been waited with for a coup, looks like it comes through today. SEPIA TONE has a better rider today, will be in thick of things. CONSTANTIA has had enough runs to surprise. VARUN is always ridden by the same jockey, another coup being brewed.
RISING EMPEROR-SEPIA TONE-CONSTANTIA
DAYS BEST===SET ALIGHT
