The honours were even yesterday with three races each going to favorite, second favorite & outsiders respectively.In the long card of ten races today the trend is likely to continue.S PADMANABHAN & W Smith must have sighed relief after their well awited first win. With added confidence they now have a decent chance in the feature event today.
POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. SHISHAM has been well prepared who should be in the reckoning if he runs straight. LIGHTNING BLUES should like the trip under the strong rider. CHAILA BABU was given a questionable ride last time. SPREAD A SMILE had warmed up to win comfortably, may try to repeat. SAVANNA’S PRIDE has been allowed to mature & now goes under the top jockey at a decent handicap. The pedigree is decent as the dam was a good stayer. PRAYATNA was a good thing beat in the lower class.

2. SPANDAU BALLET has been well prepared. LEOPARDINO is impressive in tracks. STUNNING GREY may run a good race. HALLMARK is by a speedy dam, the preparation is good. SIMPLE who ran an easy 4th in winters looks much improved.
3. PROOF OF TREASURE has run two mock races, can win if breaks out well. COMMAND PERFORMANCE was denied to perform in winters, has good speed. RUNNING MAN is yet to earn any money, the age is against him.FIERY BUSINESS who placed for first time in last run would be at it again. GRACIAN has a forceful rider to be better than the last 4th.
PROOF OF TREASURE-GRACIAN-FIERY BUSINESS
4. TOMSK moved impressively in final stages to win easily & gave a decent impression. ORIGINALITY who is well bred won under the confident riding of a non try jockey to land a coup, has the services of top jockey, the tracks are surprisingly poor. CHAR CHAND will be trying to place here. FLIP YOUR DESTINY is working well.
5 FANTASTIC QUEST ran a decent race in a good company. ARKTOUROS had won very impressively on debut at Mumbai, the mock race shows fitness, no works on tracks? SUGAR RAY is speedy who looks better prepared from the same stables. MUDEER POWER is at the best handicap, it can run a decent race if it stays as the sire has produced sprinting types only.
ARKTOUROS-FANTASTIC QUEST-MUDEER POWER
6. CARTE BLANCHE looks well prepared. ADAMARIS is bred for speed, tracks are good. THE LAST SAMMURAI may place. GLORIOUS PRINCESS had shaped like a winner in last run. BLUSHING BEAM is a failed favorite who can bounce back.

7. SAPTASHWA has been maintaining a good form. MOTHER’S PRIDE is shining in tracks, likes the distance. SYMBOL OF SPEED is coming down in weights. VAN DE STAR was really unlucky to loose last time, needs to be supported again.
VAN DE STAR-SAPTASHWA-MOTHER’S PRIDE
8. BRAHAMAPUTRA is a good sprinter who has a better jockey now. JERSEY PRIDE goes over his pet distance after a surprise win. HESPERUS maintains brilliance despite age. WOMAN ON TOP has a habit of running good races after a listless one. LADY ONE ran a good 2nd in sprinters cup, will take a lot to be beaten here.
LADY ONE-WOMAN ON TOP-HESPERUS
9. DOUBLE ELITE has been well prepared. Gift a diamond looks improved. GUN FIRE has not been tried since winning first two starts last summers, the tracks are suggestive. A RUN TO REMEMBER is pleasing in works. SENNA has been brought down in handicap, the rider is good for a start to finish attempt.
GUN FIRE-GIFT A DIAMOND-DOUBLE ELITE
10. ASIATICUS who is down in class is looking fit. ZAFAR is working well. SOUTHERNER should improve. FACTION LEADER has not touched the board for long. TINA’S TRIUMPH ran a forward race.
DAYS BEST===LADY ONE
