1. UNLEASHED is from a speedy dam line and has been steadily prepared over the last two months. ELITE LAND is full brother to BRIGHT FUTURE and can win based on the last run when he was out for experience. SKY GLIDER is tracking very well but I have my doubts on the poorly performing sire and a staying type dam. ABNOBA is from the best sire of present day and this full sister to AUCHINLECH can make a race of it if tried, she is speedy in tracks.
2. OPTIMUS PRIME is shining out in tracks but has a tough handicap. SADDLE QUEEN was a very easy winner in lower class with the rider looking back. SHADES OF WHITE has been given a couple of runs, should go all the way, trainer is known for holding up his horses for coups later.
SHADES OF WHITE-SADDLE QUEEN
3. AFFIRMED CROWN has to fight out here as the field is very competitive. EDMONDO is showing lots of speed in works. LOCK AND LOAD was an impressive 2nd in last run has a fight on hand once more. DESERT RULE has been denied to finish on after leading, the horse is a sitter at handicap, the connections are waiting for the good odds. THE SPARTAN has come down by loads, the trainer is biding his time so far in the season.
DESERT RULE-AFFIRMED CROWN-LOCK AND LOAD
4. SUNNY SPELL was a good winner who is bound to improve. ALPHA BABY has a decent jockey. RIP WAN VINKLE has been a disappointment so far, the tracks are good. CAPTAIN’S LOVER was 5th in last attempt, comes into reckoning on basis of some fine tracks, the connections are unreliable types.
CAPTAIN’S LOVER-SUNNY SPELL-ALPHA BABY
5. INSPIRING TRUST has been a miserable failure often. SUN ZONE is an aged horse who was a notable finisher, looks tough here. ENDURING STAR has the good rider repeating to ride, has a decent chance. ROYAL AMBER has been waited with for long after change of stables, has the best handicap if tried today. LESTER was a good 2nd, the trainer is sleeping so far.
ROYAL AMBER-ENDURING STAR-LESTER
6. GAME FACE is showing speed in tracks. FEELITENJOYIT has a good chance, the jockey is average.LADZONE has a strong jockey who wins races for old friend warren singh. SECRET GIRL is capable of leading the bunch and gaming on. GOOD GIFT has been brought down, may be tried now.

1. APACHE INDIAN led and finished a faraway 2nd in last run, will be trying to do better now. RIVER MINSTREL is the best bred full brother to ELITE EMPIRE and RETRIBUTION, may have come to hand as the tracks are inconclusive. PRINCE BRIJENDRA has been tried over a staying trip at Pune, should be in the fighting line with the good jockey. NARA is liking the hard surface and can beat the hopeful 4 years if he warms up like last time.
NARA-PRINCE BRIJENDRA-APACHE INDIAN
2. OYSTER BLUE had blown away the field in last run and continues to track well, the competition may come from stable mate who is receiving chunks of weight, let us see if the delhi based owner can get to repeat. WHISPERING WILLOWS has not been raced at merit by the foreigner in last run, has credentials. The choice of rider on DEEP PURPLE is perplexing, may be going or not. ENTICEMENT is full sister to PAMPERED PRINCESS, the speedy type a few years ago, may show out as tracks are improved. RISING GLORY , is sister to good type ENAKSI, has a handicap chance.
RISING GLORY-OYSTER BLUE-WHISPERING WILLOWS
3. BLESSINGS won in a poor field, looks tough to do well now. CAMBIASSO has been a disappointment so far, can not be backed even though he has raced against good types. BARBARA is keen one for this trip. STRAUSS is a well bred who goes with weight advantage with a decent jockey, belongs to a trainer who wins at good odds.
4. WEIZHOU has back breaking weight to carry. TSESEBE has been brought down a bit. CHIMERIQUE has a decent jockey, the trip suits. IRISH QUEEN has yet to be supported by the owner, may be the day. SWAHILLI ran miserably as a favorite, it may have been a case of intentionally not trying the horse.
5. FLARING SUN warmed up in a sprint to land the spoils ion last race , now goes over a suitable distance. BRIGHT FUTURE won all the way, has to beat the penalty. MIDSUMMER KNIGHT appeals the most after his smashing win. ROSE OF TEXAS won in friendly circumstances, can not repeat.
MID SUMMER KNIGHT-FLARING SUN-BRIGHT FUTURE
6. Looks like another race for the owner who is getting used to picking up maiden’s events regularly as all the trainers and breeders are keen to get him to buy/train horses for them respectively. NATIONAL GLORY is brother to SACRED RELIC, looks in fine condition from works. OCEAN AND BEYOND has been waited with as others were to be tried, tracks are good. TWIN SPICE is well bred to topple the favorite as he is top bred brother to decent types OUR FORTUNE and CLARION CALL. DIGNITY AMPLIFIED belongs to a decent combination of trainer, owner and rider who have been consistent. The gate practices may have brought on the filly/
OCEAN AND BEYOND-TWIN SPICE-DIGNITY AMPLIFIED
7. RIVER PRIDE is half brother to ARISTOS, has been raced at all distances to find the mark, may be a bit long here. SOLOR was given an easy non try ride by the same rider. BLUEBIRD is a well bred brought in who has tracked very well like others from this top trainer, looks good here. SATSUMA STAR is from a good racer, has been tracking well and should run well at this distance.
BLUEBIRD-RIVER PRIDE-SATSUMA STAR
8. ESTEVEZ is a speedy type who is conceding weight and is stiff on handicap. PHOSPHOR is tracking fast, can trouble the speediest here. SMOKIN ACES was undone by the outside draw in last run, can go all the way, the tracks are best. WILD TORRANADO comes into reckoning based on consistency.
9. ROYAL GESTURE is maintaining form. SILVER SANDS had won all the way and the rider is repeated. VIOLETTA is best bred and had emerged with a flourish from the rear pack to nail front runners in last impressive win. SEA HONOUR is a well bred who has been kept in stables for too long, starts his carrier as a four year old as this trainer is known for delivering only with older lots.

1. HELLO DOLLY is a winner of four races and has a chance after finishing 4th in last outing as the field is weak. QUAND MEME has not been tracked for long.
GOLDEN CHAIN has tracked well. BEACON LIGHT may run on board as he is in fine form. THE TRAETORIAN has come down a lot and may upset at these weights.
HELLO DOLLY-BEACON LIGHT- THE PRAETORIAN
2. STRIKE IT RICH is showing out in tracks, she had bled at Pune after winning there and was subsequently sold, looks likely to go all the way as the climate is on her side. SERIOUS ATTITUDE has not lived upto the potential, may place. SPICY MOVE is due to win on backing. TIGER TIGER has been tracked often and is speedy.
STRIKE IT RICH-SPICY MOVE-TIGER TIGER
3. REAL STRONG has a positive jockey switch. ASSERTIVE has better handicap chances, has run better than REAL STRONG before. EMPIRE MAKER has been given runs, the tracks show improvement. ZUETINA remains in reckoning as she is at low weights.
EMPIRE MAKER-ASSERTIVE-REAL STRONG
4. ASHWA PUSHKAR was a faraway 3rd in his first outing in a million, has worked well. BREAKING MOULD is looking improved after the last run. WARLORD has run a faraway 2nd to stable mate on last occasion, has the best jockey to fight out.
5. The handicapper has not done justice to his job in this race. SUCCESSOR had won by 8 lengths from GIN AND TONIC and SHUBH SHUBH when conceding about three lengths each in the President Of India Cup. The horse had come from Pune and the ratings of that centre can not be compared to Delhi’s horses who are a poorer lot. In this race a bookie may offer odds of 5 to 10 paisa to cater for the horse to have breakdown in the race or for the jockey to fall down due to the incumbent weather or what have you. Apart from the mentioned one, SENEGAL should like the short sprint.
SUCCESSOR-GIN AND TONIC-SENEGAL
6. LIGHTNING BOLT has been well prepared, may be tried at this distance. DOON BOY has come to hand, should run well. REAL SPEED has to fight out as the last run was mediocre. ASMA retains sprinting form.

The main contender for the Kolkata Derby are ABOLINE and, FAIR OPTION who faught out in last contest and Oaks winner SANS PAREIL. Since P Shroff is having an amazingly successful time with his horses in the recent times one could also consider BRUCKNER in the same league. ABOLINE was seen to be shortening his strides over 2000m in last run which had come after a longish break and shift over from Bangalore to this city. Considering the class and the fact that he would have improved from the last run he is still the favorite to win the Derby. Frankly I do not see FAIR OPTION , the son of a mediocre sire winning the contest. BRUCKNER is also from a very mediocre sire and though he has shown tremendous tracks and freshness, he takes on a tough bunch here. SANS PAREIL won the Oaks in a mediocre field with hardly any staying lines in contention, she has to really run well to get the measure of the colts now.

DIAMOND SHOWER is regular in tracks, will run a forward race. FLOWER has come down to a very low in handicap, has yet to be under the stick seriously.
SUNNY CONNEXION-FLOWER-DIAMOND SHOWER
2. GUNPOWDER is the first son of local sire FANTABULOUS KING and the tracks are decent. WORK FORCE has the flying in jockey, the elders from this line were mediocre lot. SUNSPIRIT is working well, but this 17th foal of the wonderful mare MARY BANKS has his task cut out. BALA’S GLORY is by the freshman sire who is considered good, the last run was forward. VALAHAK is notable in tracks. SWEET CAROLINE is full sister to decent SUGAR RAY and three parts sister to ABOLINE, may run a forward race.
BALA’S GLORY-SUNSPIRIT-SWEET CAROLINE
3. ENDURING STAR belongs to a poorly performing trainer, can not be considered for win even under a good jockey. Remember this horse had flopped at 40 paisa as a youngster. RAPTOR FORCXE is working well. ARABIAN MEMORIES has an allowance jockey for the right trip. MYSTIC STAR is looking good in works.
RAPTOR FORCE-ARABIAN MEMORIES-ENDURING STAR
4. TRUE IMPRESSION has a strong jockey to build upon the first time place in last run, where it had finished on like a camel in the flock.

TRUE IMPRESSION- RUMOUR PROOF -LEOPOLDO

8. CLASSIC COMMANDER has the top stable jockey, the horse will be tried only if odds are good. PEACEMAKER is working well. MEGA JOY has a try jockey. TRILLION WIN can sprint well if bet upon by the connections. TIROLINO has been tracking for months, should make a decent beginning.
9. MAN UNITED may run well, the trainer is illusive type. POWERFUL DREAMS may place with the foreign jockey. DOUBLE ELITE is still a maiden, needs luck to break the jinx. BUCK PASSER JUNIOR can upset. ACT OF DUTY is due for a win, has a good jockey.

TRY YOUR LUCK has a rider switch and low weights.
FLYING SPIRIT- TOMY CARMICHAEL- TRY YOUR LUCK
3. BLUE THUNDER has the breeding of a top horse, has been prepared well, may have come to hand. RAJASTHAN ROYALS should be considered in a scurry, the tracks are very fast. RIVER DRAGON is a well bred who got nabbed by IL TABARRO in last run, has improved. SPARKLING SPIRIT was the ride of the French jockey Breux who got suspended for pulling, the horse can deliver at good odds as is the style with her trainer.
RIVER DRAGON-BLUE THUNDER- SPARKLING SPIRIT
4. ROMAN LEGION can not be fancied here based on last two runs. OCEAN STORM comes into contention on his suggestive runs, may win. PURE POWER was a forward runner who has to come up a bit more. RHYTM DIVINE has been on tracks daily, the pedigree is average, the last run was forward. SUNLIGHT is the doosra of the owner from a much better trainer, the horse is the foal of a black type mare and is tracking well.

STAR ATTRACTION-SLIK KIT-PREMIER QUEEN
6. CLASSIC STAR has been given mocks, can make a race of it on good getaway from the gates. KAI has been bought down, the handicap is suitable, may be tried as this combination of trainer, owner and rider has often clicked. SURAJ was a notable finisher in last scurry, can race well here. ECSTATICA has no tracks but the close finishes in last couple of races makes her a top contender here.
7. SUPREME EMPEROR appeals on handicap, has run with better types. SNOW QUEEN has an outside chance to place. RIVER RULE is going over ideal distance, she is showing out in tracks. GAMBA has been a keen runner, may place. SOL has the low weights and a positive rider switch for a decent bred.
