Two big names in recent racing circuit belonging to the top owner of the country are contesting the feature event. Both these horse had flopped & gone off form in concluding portion of the winter season. It would be interesting to see how well they get back to winning form now. It would not be wise to suggest that one of them will win today aas in racing parlance form is a big factor when choosing winners.
1. TRAFALGAR SQUARE should come into contention based on the last run. It has won at these weights before. PRINCESS EMILY ran a forward race last time. WORD TO WORD placed first time hence has come to hand, if odds favor the trainer cum owner it should win easily as the pedigree is good. ROYAL FLYNN has been tracking well.
WORD TO WORD-TRAFALGAR SQUARE-ROYAL FLYNN
2. EXCELLENT SPEED won his first start in summers last year, the tracks indicate fitness, will fight out. LEAGUE;S APART has no tracks, only trainer knows its potential , the horse was a costly purchase which has been a failure so far. ALL MY COLOURS was given a soft ride as a favorite, it looks a good thing if ridden well. BULLISH LUCK is a place hopeful.
ALL MY COLOURS-EXCELLENT SPEED-LEAGUES APART
3. GENTLE KNIGHT has been beaten twice by better types, the preparation, mock race etc should have helped him. EXCELLENT ABILITY , a sister to GALLOPING BAY looks in good condition. SEVEN STAR has been showing out on tracks, may improve. FELICITAD has to show a lot of improvement to justify its good breeding.
GENTLE KNIGHT-SEVEN STAR-EXCELLENT ABILITY
4. SOUTHERN EMPIRE is a champion horse who is getting into racing form. BOURBON KING may run an improved race, the mock trials should have brought him to form. . SPLENDID SURPRISE lost unluckily to DIEGO RIVIERA, looks good on tracks. RHAPSIDIAN SNOW led for most of the way in Wadiyar cup, can go all the way with this yet to prove rider.
RHAPSIDIAN SNOW-SPLENDID SURPRISE-BOURBON KING
5. ADAMARIS is working very well, may get the nod today. CHINAB is a place hopeful. MUSIC FOREVER , a half brother to RED INDIAN has been steadily prepared by the rider. SUGRIV is tracking fine. BLUSHING BEAM has the advantage of a race run.
ADAMARIS-MUSIC FOREVER-BLUSHING BEAM
6. FIGHTING STAR ran a good 3rd, has a better jockey now. SUAVE is likely to show much improvement like most other horses of this trainer. MILAGRO was an impressive finisher in last run, will be in the fray. SANGINI was a comfortable winner. SUPERIOR SURPRISE has been very well prepared, the connections are not having a good record for fair running of their animals.
MILAGRO-FIGHTING STAR-SUPERIOR SURPRISE
7. REBELLIOUS has the benefit of an easy run. ASIATICUS has come down a lot, may win now. SOUTHERNER has been well prepared. TINA’S TRIUMPH ran a suggestive 4th.
