1. SON OF THE SUN ran a faraway 2nd and a half interested JEWEL LADY was racing alongside, both can be in contention though the rider of the later is likely to be a Trier. MANTHARA is a winner of two races who may surprise in this poor field. I fancy SMART COOKIE who has worked well ; from the stables of Samar Singh which are at a very low spirit to upset here.
SMART COOKIE –BOTHWAYS.
