POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. ROYAL BANK has a speedy pedigree & a reasonably good rider. OPPRIMO could not speed up & failed as a favorite last time. MUSICAL PARADISE was given an easy ride in last run, has a very mediocre field to tackle, the pedigree indicates speed. PANJURY may run well in maiden run.
2. RESPLENDANT ALPHA is brother to BADGE OF GOLD, the work jockey atop is a big dampener despite two mock races. STANDING OVATION is tracking well. CALMING INFLUENCE is half sister to good types in HESPERUS & ANGARA, the two gates may help her win in maiden attempt. PINNAKINI is a failed favorite during winters, ran well enough in SAFARI’s runaway win, the choice of rider shows lack of confidence in the connections mind. SHE’S SPECTACULAR is impressive in tracks.

3. GAMPU was given an easy run, should run an improved race now. ROYAL ARTIST is at a good handicap, but belongs to a trainer who is known for failing when his horses are in betting order. BADDA RUPPAIYA may run on board. KING OF GOOD TIMES was pulled last time, Appu has given three tracks to this very poorly performing 2nd grade trainer, may be on?. FIERY BUSSINESS is tracking regularly. LIVE IT UP ran a decent 2nd, looks like being in business once again as this rider has been giving tracks. MAFIASO has been given tracks with good types of the stables , the rider on most occasions could not be clearly identified by the track reporters, he has won at this distance under this very rider before, may be a good gamble in this field of suspect four year olds.

4. LEAGUES APART was a noticeable 2nd last time without any preparation, mow the foreign jockey may deliver for the hapless trainer who is in dumps so far this season. A RUN TO REMEMBER can run a decent race over this distance. MISS PUKKA is capable of surprising. BENNYTHEBULL has been well prepared, may be the distance is a bit too long for this new named animal. LUCKY GOLD STAR has been well prepared by the rider, the pedigree is stout.

5. EL GORDO surprised all by her last win over a sprint, should like the step up in distance. BASTIAN BAY is well prepared, the stable is yet to try its younger horses this season. ALCHESAYE belongs to a difficult to assess trainer ( the favorites lost regularly last season), he ran erratically in last attempt, can deliver. MILFORD can surprise. APPERTINI is well bred who is shining in works & has a decent allowance jockey atop.
6. CARTE BLANCHE looks well prepared. RAPTOR FORCE , a full brother to RENASCENT has been very well prepared, the close 4th in mock race is a big indicator. SPANDAU BALLET may improve on last run. ENDURING STAR a slightly non conforming brother of good type IVANKA is very pleasing in tracks.

7. REGAL RANSOM was a surprise winner against a poor field. VIJAY SAMRAT is the only winner from the biggest flop sire this year, may run well. POWER PUNCH was a impressive winner in winters, he is maintaining form. RADIANT ACT is a failed favorite, NO TRACKS? SPLENDID POWER is getting loads of weight from the winner 3 year olds, may surprise with this try jockey.
POWER PUNCH-SPLENDID POWER-REGAL RANSOM
8. BOLD REPLY has been well prepared, none of the horses from the owner have been tried so far. MY FRIEND PAUL runs best when fresh, the jockey is mediocre. HAWAAIN SUNRISE has come down a lot. MYSTIC STAR is pleasing in tracks. SOUTH PARADISE is running at a better handicap than in winters. JERSEY POWER is a well bred who is tracking fine.
