1. GOOD SHOT has been tracking regularly, ran easy in mocks and is in fine shape, may be tried with this average rider for good odds. MORAVA GOODTIME is a filly with a temperament, last run was poor. JENNIFFER a wrongly named colt with a feminine name is well bred, may need this run before getting on board. BALMORAL CASTLE has an awesome pedigree, looks forward from tracks, the trainer would be very interested in this hopeful’s future.

2. SKYRIDER has tracked well, comes into contention based on winter runs. NORTH CAPE is decently bred, was slow off and kept purposely wide most of the way in mocks, last work was good.ICE BOUND is full sister to black type SANSKARA, the trainer has been wayward in preparing his horses, this one has a fighting chance. CROWN EMPRESS ran one paced in last outing, may improve as the sire is tops.

3. AFFICIANDO should improve after the last easy run, has worked well. FOSWELL looked ordinary in CARLA’S race, needs more distance. ONE FOR THE MONEY is going to be fighting for money after a very noticeable run last time when he was finishing on. SWIFT STAR is a well bred full brother to black type NATIVE KNIGHT , he was given an easy outing in winters, the preparation now is good. SKY GLIDER is from a speedy mare and has attracted lots of betting in winters, should be fancying her chances here.

4. MOVES GOODENOUGH went down fighting to COULEUR ROUGE who was an impressive runner in FTS subsequently, has top weight as worry. MAGIC MILLION has always been on board in all seven runs. GIFT OF LOVE was given an easy first run, has weights in favor. SOVIET MELODY won in poor company, should improve now.

5. STILL WILL is a good handicapper and should be fighting now after the last easy run. TANZANITE has a fair chance with the top rider, has not been able to show out after the last win in Mysore season. THE LAST SAMMURAI has come down a lot, may show out with this rider. GREENS has a chance to place. CHINTZ should do well with the improved jockey.
6. RAPTURES OF VICTORY has been tracking well, the mocks should have bought him on. FLYING TRICOLOUR is a speedy type who lost out to too good ELOISE last time. ROSE MEAD was an impressive winner who maintains form. BRAAVO was a runaway winner in winters, has been well prepared.

7. SPRINT STAR was an impressive winner of Karnataka Cup , the ideal trip is 1600m only. BECKET has to live upto his huge reputation, has been working well. COTSWOLD ARMS showed zest in last race despite his age. ONASSIS was given a loosing ride last time, should be a worthy adversary to the favorite now. SPARK OF GOLD is a good type and has handicap to trouble at long odds. SANS PAREIL is shining in tracks, the low weights and the fighter jockey are plus points.
8. PARTY TONITE has been working well, the distance is an issue. SON OF THE SOIL would be looking to beat this weak field if handled well by the aging rider. SEVEN STAR is one paced. PERSIAN PRINCESS may run well as the trip suits.

9. RED RENEGADE runs after a long recovery break. FLAMING LAMBHORGINI was a fighting 3rd , goes over the ideal trip. SHOTGUNN is looking good for repeat. RAPTOR FORCE may need the run, likes the underfoot conditions.

10. POWER COLORS is from the good sire. DANCE N CELEBRATE is by a good sire from a decent mare, has a fine chance with this jockey. GLUTEUS MAXIMUS has come up after the last non try run. BEAUTIFUL LIFE has inherited the habit of not jumping out from his dam, what a shame as the gelding looks very fit in tracks. GOLDEN QUEST should be involved in this field.
