1. VANTAGE is nicely bred who was very eye catching in works during the winters. There are no tracks now but still she can win in this ordinary group. SECRET AGENDA is a speedy type, she was notable 4th under this non try jockey. MUSICAL RHYTHM will try to contest the issue based on its previous near forward run. FOREST MUSIC has a positive rider change after an insipid run.
2. FIRECRACKER should run well here. NARA failed as a favorite in Mumbai, has a poor pedigree, & no tracks. ARABIAN GUEST has come down in scales. JUST BLESSINGS is an interesting candidate here, all its runs have been in sprints when the bloodlines have been seeking staying distances. The mock race was indicative, may be on now at bottom weight.
JUST BLESSINGS-ARABIAN GUEST
3. THUNDERING STAR has come down in handicap, may run better now. BEAU MONDE has been tracking well, the distance suits. DANCE MAESTRO has been prepared, the mock race should have bought him on. ISHTAR is being scrubbed in works, maybe tried.
DANCE MAESTRO-THUNDERING STAR-BEAU MONDE
4. GOLDEN ROCK, the son of black type SONALIKA is showing speed in tracks. SPITZ has been showing out in trials, has a good jockey who should win here. BELLIGERENT is attractive in works, has a decent pedigree. VICTORY STAR is full brother to useful VICTOR, she should run a good race.
5. CHEVERON appears here after a long break of a year, how will the owner’s survive if trainer’s keep the horses unfit for so long, only V Mallya types can afford the large bills. VALE OF LEVEN is bred to stay, she is pleasing in works. LIQUIDATOR was a notable late finisher in last run, the rider switch is confusing. URUJ is shaping well in works.
VALE OF LEVEN-URUJ- LIQUIDATOR
6. ANGEL’S GLORY is a good type filly who has improved with each run, all have to beat her. HIGHLAND CONQUEST was an impressive winner in a field where the other horses took it easy. MONOPOLY has a slight handicap advantage vis a vis race 134 when she gave a good fight. INSITE SOUL has been showing out in works, has yet to do justice to its cost.
ANGEL’S GLORY-MONOPOLY-HIGHLAND CONQUEST
7. WAHY was an impressive winner under this rider in Mumbai, looks in fine fettle. BABEIN THE WOODS has been given questionable runs, should improve. OH SO ROMANTIC is a speedy type, the rider is weak. HOLY WARRIOR has not lived up to its billing, should improve. INDIAN SUMMER is a got abroad who is from a useful sire.
WAHY-BABE IN THE WOODS-OH SO ROMANTIC
8. PARIS HILTON ran in snatches to be on board. VIJAI BHAVA has been notable in tracks. ADAM’S PLEASURE is working well. ARABIAN SPEED warmed up to win last time, has scope to improve.
