1. STAGE LIGHT had a bad check despite which the horse ran on strongly in the end, the allowance jockey can win here. SUNNY’S CONNEXION is an unreliable type who has not won for very long. SOUTHERN MAGIC belongs to a betting type owner, the tracks are good and can win all the way under this good jockey. WHISPER VALLEY has a chance here as the progeny of BRAVE ACT does well on softer type of underfoot conditions which are prevailing.

2. XEL was a good gamble last time, the horse has not been tracked thereafter. MIGHTY PRINCE has a chance to be first one from Hyderabad to score here as the field is uncertain. SPARK OF OLDENBERG is looking half fit, there is no shine in tracks. FLIP YOUR DESTINY has come down a lot, it has to be watched now onwards. BLACK BEAUTY should run a forward race under the rookie.
FLIP YOUR DESTINY-BLACK BEAUTY-XEL
3. ZANGI is a winner of three races, last run was thereabouts. DIAMOND SHOWER has been blazing the tracks for the last six months, looks very forward, the jockey is for rates. PRINCE NORBERT folded up after leading in, can not be backed here. MEXICAN WAVE is due to earn for the owners.
DIAMOND SHOWER-ZANGI-MEXICAN WAVE
4. SHOTGUNN is showing out in works, the speedy one gave an indication of positive ness in winters run. LONE RANGER is from a speedy pedigree, may be tried with this jockey. ICE MINT is well bred and showing out in works, will be in the fray. CLASSIC COMMANDER impressed in gates, the rider can fight out.
SHOTGUNN-ICE MINT-CLASSIC COMMANDER
5. SPIRITUALL has been tracking well, may emulate his elder brother who won in style yesterday. ACQUITAINE is the speediest one, he was eased up in last run by this rider , I suspect the family’s fancy was Harish riding on RARE AND PRECIOUS. EINSTEIN is good at handicap, the jockey is a big worry. JERSEY PRIDE is due to shock some day as he has come down a lot. MOTHER’S PRIDE needs more distance, the weights appeal.
6. AMAZING FLORA is worse off on handicap. HIDALGO wins at odds at this handicap. EVENT HORIZON has the jockey for a fighting run. FREE GLIDER has done nothing for long, the good jockey may be able to coax him. MISS MARVELLOUS has been bought down, the rider switch be noted. DANTE’S PEAK is at a good scale, the last run was suggestive.
DANTE’S PEAK-EVENT HORIZON-MISS MARVELLOUS
7. ABOLINE has won all his starts well, the only doubt can be the staying ability of BURDEN OF PRROF off springs, should be ready for a tough race as the others are going to come at him in the end. ALACRITY is the most improved, the last win was good. STAR OF MARMALADE gave indication of being a good type when he won the first start in style over 1400 metres, the last run under the 2nd string jockey braught him to a length behind D’ARTAGNAN, he is bound to show out like his elder brother MYSTICAL over this trip. D’ARTAGNAN won in controversial circumstances last time, allegedly under steroids effect, that puts another blot on his chances apart from the time when he went down as a half money favorite to ABOLINE ion winters.
STAR OF MARMALADE-ABOLINE-D’ARTAGNAN
8. ALGIERS has come down in scales. NOBLE KINGDOM has been a disappointment, does not quicken when it matters. KAJU RAHO has been thereabouts, may be able to get up in the final stages of the race. SHISHAM is very pleasing in tracks.
KAJU RAHO-NOBLE KINGDOM-SHISHAM
9. LADY DUFF was a comfortable winner who is in fine nick. PATH TO FAME is working very well. SPARK OF SOLITAIRE has a successful jockey for the connections. GRAND RAPIDS is speedy. MERCUTIO is at low weights.

DOUBLE====== SOUTHERN MAGIC and ACQUITAINE
