1. JOLTEON looks good on handicap, the distance suits. CHOPSANI has come to hand and should place again. TRY YOUR LUCK has a forceful rider. TRIBAL WARRIOR is a winner of six races and at low weights under a try jockey.
JOLTEON-TRY YOUR LUCK-CHOPSANI
2. GENGHIS KHAN is a beaten favorite. WELLS FARGO ran well in placing last time, has a chance to win. CHARLIE PARKER is the joker in the pack, may win some day at good odds only. JOHNNY BRAVO was eye catching in last run , has a better ruder to score.
JOHNNY BRAVO-GENGHIS KHAN-WELLS FARGO
3. FORCE OF LAW won at good odds, now the handicap is stiff. TELSTAR was a close 4th, has a good jockey for this distance. ARES was an unlucky looser, deserves another chance. BORN SPECIAL definitely needs a run, the win at Pune was impressive.
4. CAMEO is a fast type, may need this run. INSITE SOUL appears to be for 1000m only, the handicapper should have caught up with him. FIRE WITHIN was a good winner who can repeat. STAR ATTRACTION won well at Pune, the mock race was suggestive.
STAR ATTRACTION-FIRE WITHIN-INSITE SOUL
5. SALUTE THE STAR had an educational run, is bound to run a forward race with the top stable jockey. GLORIA is half sister to RUNNING BULL who is impressive in tracks. JACQUILINE is by a speedy sire, the preparation is suggestive. RIVER GLORY is half sister to decent type NOBLE VIEW who has been tracking well at Pune and here, may run well., the tracks are fast. STAR CROWNED is by a speedy and classic producing mare, needs this run.
RIVER GLORY-JAQUILINE-SEE THE STAR
6. AMBERROGIO may place at the best. SPIRITUALL is a good type who has been sharpened up well. SPITZ was a fluent winner , may be stiff at handicap. PILLATUS lost to SPICA who went on to win in highest class, may be supported on that count.
7. The examination of the top contenders shortens the list to a few. AUTONOMY has beaten most of them, the last victory over DANCING DYNAMITE was hard fought. RED ROMEO who beat him last year was struggling to beat a very mediocre field and appears to be a shade off. FLEETING ARROW is the top rated horse for this distance, may shock the field. PHENOMENALE , the crore costing filly has done very well by winning the Pune Derby comfortably and is going to be the prime contender for this race.
8. LA JOI DE VIE has a stiff weight to carry at this distance. FLARING SUN won handsomely but the dam was a pure sprinter only. YOUNG OFFENDER has an outside chance after the last win. ECSTATICA impressed in her runaway win, needs to be supported again.
ECSTATICA-YOUNG OFFENDER-FLARING SUN
9. PALME D’ OR is in fine form SUDDEN IMPACT has been sharpened up well, will need to fight hard as the handicap is stiff. WILD TORRANNADO is an upset candidate. CATALYST is at the right weights to run a good race. PRETTY COMMISSION needs a bit more of distance and may be a run.
SUDDEN IMPACT-PALME D’OR-PRETTY COMMISSION
10. SARJE RAO appeals in this set up for a place. WIND STORM is speedy, the jockey is weak. MODESTY has a try jockey. HIGHLAND FLAME has weak field to tackle, should be backed. HOLD THE THOUGHT has a poor jockey
DOUBLE=======ECSTATICA & HIGHLAND FLAME
