From the entries for the races today it appears that the big guns are not likely to be firing and the second string and other trainers should be vying to pick up a few races.
1. A minefield of a race with many contenders in with a chance. DANGEROUS BELLE has a positive rider switch after the close run for place. NYMPH has been tried many times with foreign riders, now the local lad may get a better response. SECRET MAGIC had run a faraway 2nd to MANEGE at Pune, has age on side. BLAU HIMMEL has placed with this rider but had a poor run later. NONIOS has been given tracks and should run well with try jockey for a small time trainer. IJLAL has the best jockey and age on his side, has yet to be under the stick. CHOPASNI ran a good race despite a slow get off. TRY YOUR LUCK was in betting order but raced in the rear for unknown reasons, has capability to win at these weights.
2. CALLING THE SHOTS was an encouraging 3rd in youngsters company. ROSE BOWL had a good run and is tracking well. GOT TO GO is working well and goes over the pet distance. BELLIGERENT won well and has to see off the penalty.

3. OCEAN OF FAITH has a tough task to win despite having the most successful team. DELPHI is half sister to BLAZING SPECTACLE and appears forward from the gates. GOLDEN HEART should benefit from the runs and the positive rider switch. VIA CHASELLAS needs more distance to win.

4. MISCHEVIOUS TROT has good form and a good jockey. CLASSIC STAR has come down in handicap, can go all the way. ALGORITHMS may find the trip a bit long. CATALYST belongs to a trainer whose horses don’t run to form , may surprise. ALEXUS won well after a longish break and has chance to repeat.

5. BLAZING SPECTACLE had been given kilos and beating by ESTEVEZ in earlier clash. ESTEVEZ has been given some ordinary rides, has the best credentials if ridden to win from the front. SOOPHIE is a good sprinter who has been kept on a leash so far. WILD TORRANADO is running very encouragingly. SCENIC SILVER has the worst jockey but can run well on its own.
6. RIVER PRIDE has a load to carry, failed to get going last time. WHITE KNIGHT is a well bred who appears to have come to hand. GREEN SIGNAL has a poor jockey. ARIANE and SACRED RELIC were both finishing on in last attempt and have to be fighting out again. ASHRIDGE has the jockey to get the well bred going.
7. WALKING TALL is capable of winning any day, he is just about there in most runs. RAN BANKA has been waited with for a coup at good odds. SECRET TALK can place under the try jockey. PARIS HILTON is tracking well. ONUS PROBUNDI is a sitter at handicap, needs the signal at this trip.
