1. ORADA comes into reckoning based on the 5th to SEA WARRIOR, has a good chance in this poor company. HEAVY MONEY is a four year old who has never been on board, the tracks are encouraging. UNTOUCHED has a rider switch with the experienced JODHA being given a chance. BORZU AGAIN has come down in scales and may surprise.
ORADA-BORZU AGAIN-HEAVY MONEY
2. DESTINED PRINCE has once won at a staying distance, the last run was good. FIRE VAULT has a good jockey, is tracking well and can win if the horse gets the trip. APACHE INDIAN is working well, has a foreign jockey. DIVINE MAJESTY is bred to stay, may deliver.
-FIRE VAULT-DESTINED PRINCE- DIVINE MAJESTY
3. ONUS PROBUNDI has won over 1000m twice, can get the added distance. BORN DESTINY has raced in higher classes, may run well. RIVER LASS is a youngster with a decent jockey. ANAMIKA belongs to a sly trainer, may run on board.
ONUS PROBUNDI-ANAMIKA-RIVER LASS
4. SEA WARRIOR was a good winner who is in fine form. BLUMARINE fought out and lost, the added distance may not help. STAR CROWNED is bred for speed, won a multi million last season but has been recovering from set backs, the mock race was suggestive. STARFALL has been given a run, goes over the ideal distance with a good jockey at low weights.
STARFALL-STAR CROWNED-SEA WARRIOR
5. Two horses from H N Mehta facing old rival MAM’s in form OUR FORTUNE. FLAMING ARROW had lost out while receiving weight in Pune, hence the hence forth untried ICE QUEEN may match up, remember her very good run just behind IL DIVO in a scurry at Pune. SLIK KIT belongs to a scheming trainer and may surprise.
ICE QUEEN-OUR FORTUNE-FLAMING ARROW
6. DANCING DYNAMITE is conceding weight over the extra distance and has a mediocre jockey. ICEBREAKER is the best performed and is well prepared. PHENOMENALE has a fighting chance based on the good preparation. MOTHER’S PRIDE is in contention based on the close runs and the ideal distance.
7. STAR WARRIOR had impressed a lot in his maiden’s win and is in top form. KERINDINGAN is showing lots of speed in tracks and this sister to speedy types of BLUE DANUBE, MONOPOLY and HEROISM must be an exciting prospect for the connections over this sprinting million. OCEAN’S WISH can place as the terms of the race favor winners of maiden races. PETRA is by the speediest mare, the last win was easy.
8. SAINT VINCENT had got stronger to pip whip less rider of LONE MONARCH in the last contest, the terms and the choice of riders now heavily favor the later. EMPRESS OF INDIA is looking good in works. VACHERON is a well bred who has come to hand..
LONE MONARCH-SAINT VINCENT-VACHERON
9. EL TROPICO is tracking very well and should be fighting out under this most improved rider. WHISPERING WILLOWS may not be tried as is the trend with the trainer. HUNTER’S BAY has raced forward at Pune, may be given a try. JALSA can make a race if gates don’t trouble. PERGRINE FALCON is speedy and may place. HONEYDAY is at low weights to worry the field.
EL TROPICO-HUNTER’S BAY-HONEYDAY
DAYS BEST====STAR WARRIOR
DOUBLE======STARFALL X LONE MONARCH
