1. FLYING FLAME who finished on under an allowance jockey to get in place money has a rider switch. TARGT ACHIEVER has been given runs without much show, has the top stable jockey to force the issue in a mediocre field, may succeed. I FANCY YOU was a faraway 3rd, needs more distance. SMART COOKIE has been very regular in tracks and is bound to lead the way initially, may not last out.
TARGET ACHIEVER-FLYING FLAME-SMART COOKIE
2. GLORY TO DANCER was a very impressive winner in summers, looks to be at a good handicap. NATIVE TALENT was a good 3rd and is being scrubbed in tracks. STEP IN STYLE looks to be a sprinter only. INCREDIBLE has been working well. PATH TO FAME has put in some good performance in mornings, can place.
GLORY TO DANCER-NATIVE TALENT-PATH TO FAME
3. A race likely to be made up for the Byramji family as the two horses who look good are from the father and son combination who have often pulled wool over the punters eyes before. RAPTOR FORCE is down in class, has won at a higher rating over this distance and should win. The novice ridden CASPIAN SEA is the “doosra” who is showing out in tracks and has a decent chance. SPANDAU BALLET is at a stiff handicap but is working well. NOBLE KINGDOM has been a miserable flop so far.
RAPTOR FORCE-CASPIAN SEA-NOBLE KINGDOM
4. GAME DAMCER is impressive in trials after the last run, has an allowance jockey to last out. MIGHTY MONARCH is working well. TRILLION WIN may have benefited from the last run. SPARK OF ILDERISM may improve, the pedigree has not given much to the offsprings..
GAME DANCER-TRILLION WIN-MIGHTY MONARCH
5. ARISTOS has a load to carry, showing out in works. SPARK OF GOLD has been given a mock race. MY FRIEND PAUL is carrying very good form after the last impressive win. DESERT RULE is a good type who should be fighting out at this distance. TIMELESS TREASURE looks good at this handicap, the rider has to force the issue.
TIMELESS TREASURE-DESERT RULE-MY FRIEND PAUL
6. STILL WILL is looking good in tracks. SPARK OF JEWEL should build up on rider switch after the last run. PERSIAN ROCK had won easily with the rider looking back and should run well even on promotion. IDAR PRINCESS and APPOLONAIRE are place hopefuls.
STILL WILL- PERSIAN ROCK- SPARK OF JEWEL
7. STAR OF MARMALADE is a well bred who is looking in fighting fit condition. OBAN was not extended in last run. LOWNDES SQUARE is a keen type who is showing lots of speed in tracks. YOU’RE A LEGEND ran disappointedly in last run.
STAR OF MARMALADE-LOWNDES SQUARE-OBAN
8. CAPTIVATING is a winner of five races and has won at this distance before, tracks are good, . MYSTIC QUEST is in fine shape and is capable of making a race of it. DESDEMONA has improved after the change of stables, the distance may not suit. GYPSY MAGIC was a very impressive winner who now takes on the classic hopefuls. The filly is different from last summers and the confidence of the trainer in sticking with the mediocre jockey needs to be backed.
GYPSY MAGIC- CAPTIVATING-MYSTIC QUEST
9. MANTHARA is at a striking handicap with the allowance jockey. GLORY BOUND has often failed, the rider needs to win as he is not getting good mounts recently. MAN UNITED and ACT OF DUTY have a reasonable chance. STAR ADVENTURE ran a forward race and may last out today.
STAR ADVENTURE-GLORY BOUND-ACT OF DUTY
DAYS BEST====STAR OF MARMALADE
DOUBLE======GLORY TO DANCER X TIMELESS TREASURE
