1. GOOD HOPE can hope to place here as the bunch is very mediocre. HI DOLLY is a held back filly who can surprise any day. THE RIGHT MAN has only to be backed by his miserable trainer who has held him back for long. STRIKE IT RICH looks a likely candidate based on last run when he was brought into contention very late.
THE RIGHT MAN-STRIKE IT RICH-GOOD HOPE
2. ALASKA had won in a start to finish effort in this very class, the last run was good. RAN BANKA goes over the pet distance. HIGHLAND MUSIC was unlucky to loose as a favorite when he got up a bit late. CHAK DE won a very good gamble for this very poorly performing trainer, the horse has been working well.
ALASKA-HIGHLAND MUSIC-RAN BANKA
3. GATRAVAT has ben prepared, has a very bad trainer. MOON FLOWER has won twice in younger company and will be backed to make it three in a row. ABSOLUTE REALITY was a good 2nd to SALTORO, the rookie rider has a challenging task here. CLASSIC RULER was a very impressive winner who can repeat.
CLASSIC RULER-MOON FLOWER-ABSOLUTE REALITY
4. CHURCHILL is a well bred who has been painstakingly prepared. STAR OF CARDIFF should like this trip. RIVER RULE was a very decent 5th, the tracks are pleasing. SI COMO NO ran disappointingly with the weaker rider last time, may make amends now.
SI COMO NO-RIVER RULE-CHURCHILL
5. GLORIA is a well bred who has been apparently been held back for a gamble. PERPETUATION is tracking well, she bled in last race and has to be wwtched now. TRIGANCE is by the speediest mare, the last run was easy. ZENTETTA is being scrubbed in tracks.
6. DIEGO RIVIERA is looking very fit in trials, has back breaking weight to carry. JUVENTUS was very impressive in last win. RED ROMEO was considered in top three of last years classic contenders. BEYOND BELIEF is in top form.
JUVENTUS-RED ROMEO-DIEGO RIVIERA
7. THE RISING has a claimer to offset the penalty for the last win. EKHABINSKYA was being hailed as a winner 100 yards from home in last run when she stopped to get beat on post. ARES is running very forward and is going over the short trip against his breeding. HIGHLAND BOUNTY is at feather weight and the tracks are good.
8. WESTERN CHALLENGE apparently belongs to the persons with bookies connection, he has already made them a load of money by running against the public. ARABIAN CHAMP is maintaining form. BELLIGERENT was impressive in last run, the gates later are indicators of form. FIRE VAULT can upset if tried.
BELLIGERENT-FIRE VAULT-ARABIAN CHAMP
DOUBLE=====SI COMO NO X HIGHLAND BOUNTY
