1. POCKET DYNAMITE had last won in the higher class and has a reasonably performing rider. PANCHO PETE can run a forward race under the claiming jockey. ANALIKA needs more distance. PEAKABOO gave indication of striking in his last run, longish gap though from then on and the same weak rider. SIGN OF LUCK has been on board with this very jockey in last two runs.

2. SURYA RATH has raced in the higher class and placed. DEMANDING is a failed favorite, looks very tough for win. NO NAME remains backward. REGAL IMAGE has not troubled the bookies for long, he is due to earn now. BREED APART is a youngster with a good jockey, has been prepared and given a run.
BREED APART-REGAL IMAGE-SURYA RATH
3. SULEIMAN PASHA has been tracking fine for long, the last run was a disappointment. TIME SPEED has a decent chance based on 3rd in last run of maidens. BULLISH LUCK won well and is in good form. NON STOP CANNON has been given easy runs at Bangalore.
TIME SPEED-NON STOP CANNON-BULLISH LUCK
4. MR BEAUROCRAT is a fine old horse, it had beaten SOUTHERN CHIEFTAIN comprehensively last year. CILANTRO won warding off, has to improve. SOUTHERN CHIEFTAIN is a flop horse who was a very costly purchase. GERSHWIN has the top rider to repeat. SUPER SHA has to come out of the backwardness some day.
GERSHWIN-MR BEAUROCRAT-SOUTHERN CHIEFTAIN
5. SPRINT STAR will look forward to another good performance after the colts win. SANS PAREIL is in top fettle and has the best jockey, the breeding is good. CRUISING has been flashing for a bit in big races. MYSTIC QUEST is surely improved, the jockey is very average. FROZEN FIRE lost a certain race due to the jockey last time, will be in the fray with the top jockey from Mumbai.
FROZEN FIRE- SANS PAREIL-MYSTIC QUEST
6. MAGICAL SPIRIT has been in terrific form. AMAZING ONE may run a forward race. MILL FONTAINE looks good after the suggestive tracks. HENRY’S SECRET won the last two starts at good odds in Bangalore, has been an excellent purchase for the owners. SWISS QUEEN is at low weights, the trip suits.
MILL FONTAINE-HENRY’S SECRET-SWISS QUEEN
7. UNDUE had thrashed CELESTIAL TREASURE in a maiden’s race, the horse is not tracking at all. CELESTIAL TREASURE is a well bred who is well rested and prepared for the day. M R MAGIC is well bred and tracking pleasingly. LIVING FREE has been in good form, the distance is ideal. HO CHI MINH has been a disappointment after being backed.
