1. MYPETHONEY is speedy and should be running a forward race. MOONSTORM
is working well and this speedily bred horse who placed in the last run has a poor company to beat. BLADE RUNNER is a failure, can not expect him to win a sprint. WHITE HART LANE is another failure who is tracking well.
2. EKHABINSKYA who is bred for speed should be followed on her breeding itself, the last win was impressive. HYMS TO FREEDOM is a front runner and may get involved. The threat is from INSITE SOUL who looks improved . BLUE DAFFODILS may be considered for place.
EKHABINSKYA-INSITE SOUL-BLUE DAFFODILS
3. CONGRATS is bred to stay, the preparation is strong and he has nothing to beat. PENINSULA has been a failure and BRAD who is at good handicap has a weak jockey.
4. INDIAN SUMMER should like this distance. SECRET GLORY is working well. CALYPSO DANCER won well and will be tried again. CEST BON , the horse named after a Chinese restraunt is from the impeccable mare PRICELESS, the preparation is meticulous.
CEST BON-SECRET GLORY-CALYPSO DANCER
5. RAQUEL who was a good 2nd against 4 year olds has a chance to win in a very competitive field. PRINCE LOCHINVA is likely to run a forward race. SEA GULL looks vastly improved after change of stables and should be in the fray. KA CHING who won a sprint in a framed race may be tried but is at stiff handicap. The one who should place is SOLID BLACK.
RAQUEL-SOLID BLACK-SEA GULL
6. SPIRITUALL has been well trained, the distance is a bother. SPICA was eye catching in last run and has a chance now though it has a bad habit of not going out for win in last few yards. PILLATUS is at a good handicap, the tracks show fitness. ZARZANTAINE was a good winner who may run a good race again.
7. ARTS who is showing lots of eagerness in works is half brother to that spedy filly ALVARITA. DUKE OF WINDSOR is bound to run a forward race under this rider. RIVER BLOSSOM can not be backed here , it had flopped in Pune. ROCKBY VENUS who has been given a soft ride is the one to upset. VIOLETTA who is bred to stay is blazing the tracks, should be in with a chance.
ARTS-VIOLETTA-DUKE OF WINDSOR
8. RED INDIAN is at a stiff handicap but has enough speed to last out. LEGENDARY has been well prepared. OYSTER PRINCESS runs well when fresh, may upset. STAR O WAR is at a tidy handicap. GENERALISSIMO has come down in scales and comes out better than some of the fancied runners in this field.
RED INDIAN-STAR O WAR-GENERALISSIMO
9. MISCHEVIOUS TROT ran a fine race and will be involved. MR GREEDY can last out all the way, the runs have braught him on. KISS AWAY is a sparingly raced horse who is working well. MICKY MANTLE running after a long year impressed in mocks.
KISS AWAY-MISCHEVIOUS TROT-MICKY MANTLE
10. ARGENTINA was a big failure due to the over eagerness and misplaced confidence of the trainer who pitched him at a staying distance in first run. The horse has been penalized and has a stiff challenge even today as it may not win at short odds. SECRET TALK can not be considered to win as the jockey belongs to the favorite’s camp. FOREVER AMBER should do the trick if favorite flounders once again. GOLDEN KEY and SPARROW HAWK are the up setters at longish odds.
FOREVER AMBER-ARGENTINA-GOLDEN KEY
DOUBLE======MOONSTORM & RAQUEL
