POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. DESERT REALM ran better than respectful horses in Fillies Trial Stakes, it has been entrusted to a non stable & controversial jockey which gets one thinking of the motive of the canny owner, looks good enough here. DAZZLING LIGHT is working well, has a poor jockey. MAGIC MANTRA may place under the improving jockey. FLIP YOUR DESTINY is working well, impressed in gates. ASPIRING SEVEN is always a tryer. ORANGE ORCHARD was backed quite a bit & then given a very ordinary ride.
DESERT REALM-ASPIRING SEVEN-FLIP YOUR DESTINY
2. ACRIDIAN, son of black type mare is very well prepared & has the benefit of a mock race. CONCEPTUAL is the only worthwhile opponent but surprisingly the trainer decides to have uncle M Narredu to race against his upcoming nephew. They have crossed swords before & always confuse the public. The family is probably more interested in getting Suraj settled with the owner D Khaitan for obvious reasons, hence his horse should win here. For study sake CONCEPTUAL was very impressive in his last attempt when finishing 2nd to TIMELESS TREASURE. GLORY BOUND has a sprinting pedigree, this distance doesn’t suit. YOUR DESTINY is a place hopeful.
3. ELITE EMPIRE is very well bred & the tracks are good, not being tried?. ZAFFRANI who finished an eye catching 2nd has the same rider but now he is riding for a non performing stable & against the Mangalorkar’s horse whose winnable horse he rides in the first race- a bit of a confusion here. FLY FOR SURE has been prepared, will be fighting out. CHELSY DANCER had shaped like a winner in his last run, has a fight on hand.

4. REFLECTION OF GOLD a full brother to useful HABAT is maintaining good form. SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE ran a good race, has a claimer jockey now. INSPIRING TRUST has been tracking noticeably will be in thick of things now. NOBLE KINGDOM who is well bred has the benefit of a prep run, the handicap advantage should see him through.
NOBLE KINGDOM-INSPIRING TRUST-SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE
5. DIAMOND HUNTER had won comfortably, should run well again. DINESA is a game sprinter. MERCURIAL was given an easy ride, looks winner on handicap. FANTABULOUS PRINCE came up late & can place again. PERFECT RHYTHM ran a decent 2nd in lower class, the rider is ordinary.
MERCURIAL-PERFECT RHYTHM-FANTABULOUS PRINCE
6. ASTOUNDING BLUE has been well prepared & given a run, again he may have to contend with nephew on a better placed horse. AFGHAN ran a decent race, has a positive rider switch. BOLD REPLY ran very poorly as a favorite, the handicap is appealing. ROYAL ALCHEMIST finished on impressively, will be in the fray now.
BOLD REPLY-ROYAL ALCHEMIST-ASTOUNDING BLUE
7. BALLERINA GIRL is showing lots of zest in her runs. POWERFUL DREAMS is a failed favorite. STAR IMAGE may run a forward race. PROOF OF TREASURE is in reasonable form.
BALLERINA GIRL-POWER FUL DREAMS-PROOF OF TREASURE
8. PIED HARRIER is a speedy horse. CELESTIAL TREASURE has been given tracks with better class horses, looks impressive. WORTH A MILLION ran an eye catching forward race last time. ROYAL ZEN who is working fast may upset at this handicap.
CELESTIAL TREASURE-WORTH A MILLION-ROYAL ZEN
