1. SIPAH SALAR had his chances in last run, looks difficult in this set up. SAVVY CONCEPT has been unlucky in getting hampered in last run, the tracks are very suggestive and the distance will suit. MEGA JOY is likely to improve with the rider switch. BLUE DEW who is well bred is being ridden by a second grade jockey, may not be ready yet. PEACE MAKER has a top jockey, looks short of work. SONG OF JOY is impressive in tracks, the trip is to the liking.

2. HIGH ROLLER is by a speedy mare, he is forward in trials. BUCEPHALUS is another fast one who is tracking well. APPROACH has been scrubbed by this very rider, has good speed. SPARK OF BRONTE has a questionable jockey but is due for a win based on his 2nd to MISTIC QUEST who placed in the Fillies Trial Stakes.

3. SOUTHERN GLADIATOR was a confidently backed winner who is looking vastly improved in trials. SON OF THE SOIL managed to win in the dying stages of a close race, the latest spurt was good. AGILITY is brother to SPLENDID SURPRISE , has yet to come to hand. CELTIC HEROINE is the outsider here who is working well.

4. BEE QUICK who won impressively long time ago is short of a run. CHINTZ decimated the field in last run, the well bred may encore. SPARKS is supposed to be a good type from Hyderabad. STAR ASSEMBLY benefited from the favorite not being ON in last run, may run well again.
5. VALID EXPECTATIONS is on the up. EQUIDAE may need a run. LOCK AND LOAD has turned out to be a different horse after the name change, the tracks are good. AFFIRMED CROWN was a runaway winner who has been readied for the day. CARABINERI who ran a close race to finish within a length of VALID EXPECTATIONS is at a good handicap, the mare may not repeat the same run under the doppish jockey.
AFFIRMED CROWN-VALID EXPECTATIONS-LOCK AND LOAD
6. SPLENDID SURPRISE is in top form, the weights are a bother. DIEGO RIVIERA looks good for an encore , the additional 200 meters are worrying for this genuine miler. SOUTHERN CHARGE had warmed up with a back breaking load to win easily, will be in the fray. VANQUISH appears to be getting into form.

7. TIMELESAS TREASURE has run close to better types, the jockey may be a red herring. UNDUE has run close at handicap to T TREASURE , can run a forward race. SILKEN THOMAS has good form and a top jockey. PHOENIX REACH has been prepared. RAPTOR FORCE is very pleasing in works, has a fight on hand.
TIMELESS TREASURE-RAPTOR FORCE-UNDUE
8. JERSEY ROCK is one paced, the jockey has to win some day, may be this is the chance. BURNING AMBITIONS has been systematically been braught down, the tracks are fluent. SUPER SPEAR is working well, the distance is ideal. TABLE MOUNTAIN is showing out, lack of a run is a worrying factor.
