1. GYPSY QUEEN has been in form but could not win under better riders. DANCING MONEY may surprise as he has age on side. MORALITY is tracking well , may be tried as the owner must have spent lacs on this non placed 6 year old. KIMAYA has got form on his side, should be ON. ABOVE ALL is the other one from the scheming trainer.
2. BLUE THUNDER is a costly purchase gone wrong., flopped on backing but is tracking well. ORION STAR is tracking quite well and this speedy type has an allowance jockey. WELLS FARGO is at the right handicap to strike though he needs a bit of distance. TEHERANI won with the rider looking back but the placement of a below average jockey is a dampener.
WELLS FARGO- BLUE THUNDER-ORION STAR
3. BRUTUS is showing out in tracks, has a good jockey. DANTE ROSSETTI is tracking well, needs this run. OCEAN ADMIRAL is looking good for a win, the wards of the owner haven’t been performing ? PROUD STAR is well bred from the dam side and has been subjected to solid preparation. TORRIGILIA is bound to be in the race as the tracks and the rider on this half brother top PHENOMENALE are suggestive indications. ZILLIONAIRE is full brother to good type RED DRAGON, is tracking fast.
4. RIVER GEM goes over the ideal scurry and he looks very fit. EYE OF THE STORM is a well bred which has landed in a stable known for not trying most of the times. AMARANZA is the most aged horse running in the country and still has a chance. ENTICEMENT was given an awful ride as a favorite by the notorious rider last time, may show out. FISH PILOT has a chance to grace the board again.
5. ROYAL GESTURE has a full allowance jockey and the competition is weak. CRÈME DE LA CRÈME has nothing much to beat if tried. LORD OF KILLARNEY is full brother to good sprinter SUCCESSOR, may need a run. When will BLAZING SPEED earn something, hasn’t done anything for years?
CRÈME DE LA CRÈME-LORD OF KILLARNEY-ROYAL GESTURE
6. LIGHTNING CAVALARY is a sound stayer. ORIENTAL MAGIC has a try jockey to improve on last standing. KRUG is a dud with the champion trainer, let us see what the recharged Prakash can do. VACHERON has come to hand and should count today as the tracks are good and the well bred should take the trip easily. GREEN SIGNAL is in fine form, may try to force the issue.
VACHERON-ORIENTAL MAGIC-GREEN SIGNAL
7. MASEEHA is running too soon for comfort, looks at a very stiff handicap also. ICEBREAKER will be the favorite to beat, has all the credentials, distance is the issue. CLARION CALL can build up on her 2nd over this trip before. STAR ALLIANCE is the youngster who ran 5th in the Indian Derby and the son of Razeen can improve.
STAR ALLIANCE-ICE BREAKER
8. AQUALINA is tracking well, should be a front runner. MID DAY LADY is speedy in trials. OCEAN FARER has been well scrubbed in tracks. VIVA LA VIDA has all the credentials to win after the last suggestive run followed by good tracks.
VIVA LA VIDA-MID DAY LADY-AQUALINA
9. SPLENDID SECRET has the distance in favor, the rider is improving type. PRINCE BRIJENDRA was a failed favorite in Pune, the last run brings him in thick of things now. MONK’S FERRARI was kept in check by the wily rider in last run, may improve. GERRARD may be trying to place again. SEA ANGEL is knocking to run on board, the try jockey is an indicator.
