POINTERS & SELECTIONS
STRONG MINDED may place as he is a game horse. BLINK who was an unlucky looser in last run, is maintaining form. ROYAL TREASURE is showing speed in tracks. STAR WAVE’S run in FTS needs to be discounted as she is a not for longer trips, the tracks are good.
STAR WAVE-BLINK-ROYAL TREASURE
CALMING INFLUENCE is well bred who was running green yet managed to win, has to be a different proposition with that experience. CART WHEEL has been given runs in terms races, the tracks are good. JUST GREAT warmed up late to win, has a stronger rider now. LEOPARDINO is taking weight, may upset.

VALIANT BAY is bred to stay, he has been very well prepared after the initiating run, the mock race is encouraging & tracks impressive. ARKTOUROS has not lived up to expectations here, may redeem himself now. ABLE ASSOCIATE appears a good type, he is showing out in works. SALSERA may improve.
VALIANT BAY-ABLE ASSOCIATE-ARKTOUROS
TELEMACHHUS should have won last time but for the poor effort of the rider. SHEZA STAR is a well bred who has been held back for long? ,looks well prepared. KAJURAHO is a place hopeful. OPPRIMO finished on late as a favorite in last run.
SOBERANO is being given easy runs so far, remember last year he had beaten SWEEPING SUCCESS. RENASCENT has a hopeful jockey, the horse is speedy. LOGAN’S RUN may place. SCIMITAR keeps on placing, it has not won for a long time, the jockey switch may help the poorly performing stable. SWIFT FIRE is at a good handicap, if tried it has a decent chance.
ARCHIPENKO was a fighting 2nd in CTS, he looks vastly improved. NOBLE VIEW won his two starts impressively in summers, the dam has staying bloodlines, the Razeen offspring is showing lots of speed also in tracks, should run a good race. STAR PRESENTATION won a 1600m race emphatically, this got abroad has scope to improve, the rider’s choice is poor. SET ALIGHT is the top filly, the likes of which are seen after years, cant see any worthwhile opposition on paper, should be backed even at cramped odds.

BENNY THE BULL is another unlucky looser in today’s card, it also gets a chance to redeem this time. HIDALGO is down in scales, it finished on well last time. FREE MASON may run well at this longish distance, the handicap is in favor. JERSEY POWER has a try jockey who is winning constantly, he may upset. ALLEGRO has a claimer jockey, may get close to action. A RUN TO REMEMBER should like this distance at low weights.
JERSEY POWER-BENNY THE BULL-JERSEY POWER
LIONHEART at 68 Kgs, what a horse, Imtiaz Sait at Mumbai couldn’t be patient with this gallant horse & this led to its sell off to Mysore owner/trainer who are proud & richer today, it likes middle distances only & very few graded races are scheduled for such handicappers. PSYCHIC STRENGTH has been persevered with, the tracks indicate racing keenness, may show out today. GREENBAX has been given runs, it has always liked the monsoon track at this centre. WESTERN COMMAND was a comfortable winner who looks to repeat. LAVA is another lover of the cut of the track nowadays, he was a keen finisher to speedy DANCING HIGHNESS, the rider has a winner on hand.
TRUE CONFIDENCE is a place hopeful. ATLANTUS was a disinterested runner yet dragged the rider on board in last run, the couple of gates are indicators. LUCKYGOLDSTAR belonging to Mr Lucky is a gamble horse who has been handled by this rider only all through the summers. GIRLNEXTDOOR looks improved.
