1. DIVINE THUNDER was kept on the rails and prevented from winning against the favorite DAYTONA BEAUTY, may be on purpose, has a chance to score with the better jockey. MOJO is working well. STRIKE IRT RICH has been very well prepared and this one had won his last start in Pune. DAZZLING LIGHT was a bit late in catching up with BISMARK, remains in contention. FIORELLA has been meticulously trained by the new trainer, he is waiting for his first win, may be tried. LIGHTNING PASSION has tracked well.
DIVINE THUNDER-DAZZLING LIGHT-FIORELLA
2. DANCING BEAUTY has a positive rider switch since the jockey in last run woke up a bit late and allowed the winning horse to reach the winning post. BREAKING MOULD has a good chance to place as he had run ahead in race 123 when the favorite was blatantly pulled. ASHWA PRERNA is reasonably well bred for Delhi standards and may run well at low weights. DANCING BABE is the stable-mate who has a chance to do well.

3. SUNEHRA PARINDA has been poorly trained this season. DUTCH ART has to beat the handicap to win now. SUCCESSFUL DREAM is at an ideal handicap. SKYROS can run a good race even on promotion. An avoidable event.
SUCCESSFUL DREAM-DUTCH ART-SKYROS
4. REAL SCOTCH goes over the ideal distance. PALADIN has a try jockey. RISING PRINCESS is a failed favorite, has a poor jockey over an extended trip. ASHWA PRAYAG has matured after his Pune stint where he ran with better types. BEACH RAIN may show some improvement.
ASHWA PRAYAG-REAL SCOTCH-PALADIN
5. THE ROCK was the local champion last year who appears to be out of form at present. BLUE LAGOON is in very good form to beat the handicap. TAKE A CHANCE can run well over this trip. VAGABOND looks too good on comparison with BLUE LAGOON, may go all the way with the allowance jockey.
BLUE LAGOON-THE ROCK- VAGABOND
6. FLYBY has a rider switch, has plenty of speed. RESILIENCE is a failed favorite. YARE has come down to the winning mark and can surprise. ASHWA PAYALIA nods this run. PAINTED BOY has come down in scales.
7. QUAND MEME has initial speed. BURSTIC BRAVE has a decent chance being from the younger lot. BERYL has to fight to place again. SHAITAN is waiting to create mischief.
