1. The race appears to be confined between the first two runners, SERIOUS ATTITUDE was a good 2nd who has a rookie with allowance now. EL TORO looks at a good handicap to win with the top rider. GANGA JAL may try to sneak in.
EL TORO-SERIOUS ATTITUDE.
2. FOREST MUSIC is a speedy one, is running in lower class. GREEN RIBBON has the mandatory penalty to work up the load, the rookie has a job to get into money. FOROZAAN was the unlucky looser who runs at low weights to win her maiden race. FLYING ROCK runs on sufferance.
3. TAKE A CHANCE is a winner of 5 races who has a rookie at top weight. VARUN was a close looser, will be fighting again. BLACK VIRGIN has been waited with, the gambling owners have a winner here if backed. KING CHA CHA may run on board.
4. MASTER BELIEF had beaten ASHWA PARINITA convincingly at level weights before when the later had a much better jockey, hence the former should prevail despite the weight disadvantage. DAZZLING WISE is game for the sprint. COURAGE UNDER FIRE has been given a run yesterday, should run closer today.
MASTER BELIEF-ASHWA PARINITA.
5. AMAZING STAR was a good 3rd and has the rider to force the issue. The TIROL colt SUNSET VINE has been given a run, looked a winner in mocks and should go wire to wire. FLIGHT OF FANCY may run on board. PRETTY GIRL ran 3rd in a million race and later disappointed, watch?.
SUNSET VINE-AMAZING STAR-PRETTY GIRL.
6. MASTER ARTS is well bred, can improve. AIR FORCE ONE is an in and out runner, has never done well in this class. KOHINOOR EMPIRE can build up on last run. CATALUNYA has shown speed in short tracks, has done nothing in last two years and may not win if fancied heavily. THE BIG BLAST retains form.
KOHINOOR EMPIRE-CATALUNYA-MASTER ARTS.
DAYS BEST====EL TORO
DOUBLE----------BLACK VIRGIN X MASTER BELIEF
1. ENERGETIC GIRL is definitely superior in class to the field, has come down in class and has the rider for win effort. THE MAFIA is aptly named, the connections will try to hook/ hoodwink and win by default. NEKO has an allowance rider, may compete. TAKING OVER who has done nothing so far may run on board.
ENERGETIC GIRL-THE MAFIA-NEKO.
2. LITTLE CUT has worked well and can place again. HUGE PRICE has been inconsistent due to running every odd day. HAPPY GO LUCKY comes into reckoning for the breeding and last run. SHAITAN is at the bottom of scales and is due for an upset.
SHAITAN-HAPPY GO LUCKY-LITTLE CUT.
3. STEFANO has been given reducing runs, can strike a good gamble on backing, the mock race last month was suggestive. SHAILU has penalty to cover now. NARMADA has been talked about, has failed to deliver so far. DAZZLING WIN has tracked fine. FACE OF FAITH is at low weights, may run on board.
4. ENYA has won very easily last time, has handicap to beat. MASTER BLASTER has a lack of early speed, looks tough in a scurry. AFEA can run a forward race, has always been surprising when odds favor. MOONGATE MAN has the low weights and the rookie has to ride well and stay with the pace.
MOONGATE MAN-ENYA-MASTER BLASTER.
5. MASTER HARMONICA looks at a disadvantage in comparison with the speedy ABDULLAH who has an out station rider. COURAGE UNDER FIRE has worked very nicely to be in contention after a good rest. NONIOS is at low weights for a try.
ABDULLAH-MASTER HARMONICA-COURAGE UNDER FIRE.
6. GOLDEN GUN remains my favorite, something is wrong somewhere, can’t figure out what is wrong with the horse, yet it is running everyday and drifting in odds. JOHNNY BRAVO looks fit. MASTER SPEED is now running in lower class, can deliver. CANADIAN GOLD may be fancied, has yet to earn money. SPICY MOVE has been given two mocks and is bound to run for money.
GOLDEN GUN-SPICY MOVE-MASTER SPEED.

1. ASHWA PADDMA is a winner of 4 races, will be fancied on the last close run. FACE OF FAITH has not been seriously tried, has come down in weights and is working well. THE PRAETORIAN is a winner of 4 races who has the looks of an up setter at the fag end of the season. FIORELLA at fly weight with the fly in jockey is tempting.
THE PRAETORIAN-FIORELLA-ASHWA PADDMA.
2. BORZU AGAIN is a 7 year old maiden who runs on sufferance. FOROZAAN may run on board. MAUTHARMA looks likely to be involved here at low weights. ADDICTION has the right rider, he is also a maiden.
3. BAY OF THUNDER was a surprise winner who has the load of penalty which makes it very tough to repeat. DA VINCI is teasingly close to hit the wire first. FLYBY has the rider to fight out, has always won at 1000m only. KERRY BLUE has a handicap chance.
DA VINCI-KERRY BLUE-FLYBY.
4. KING’S CHALLENGE has been prepared and given an easy run, may do it. RED REEF has been a revelation, will be fancied to win again. ASHWA PANAMA has come to hand and can win now. LILY has age in favor.

MASTER OF ILLUSION-DAZZLING CRACKER-SULTAN AYUBI.

DOUBLE====GAME OF TALENT X MASTER OF ILLUSION
1. WARRIOR RACE has the experience of 5 runs, 2nd to EL SHARARA was indicative, the trainer is a disappointment. MASTER D’ARTAGNAN has the rider to deliver, the dam has been disappointing by throwing some very average foals. SHOW ON is by the speedy sire and the mocks was impressive.
MASTER D’ARTAGNAN-SHOW ON.
2. GOLDEN GUN has become an enigma, the breeder owner has a good thing waiting and he need not worry for enquiries etc as the competitors have lesser credentials. VARUN may run close, has worked well. GORGEOUS BLUE is an aged winner of 3 sprints. FLYING ROCK was kept easy in last run, may be urged for an effort.
GOLDEN GUN-VARUN-FLYING ROCK.
3. TAPISFLY has been given a run, impressed in mocks, remember the horse has won in class IV at Mumbai before. ORIENTAL SPEED may place, has not done anything this year. PRINCE RAILCO is working impressively. MASSIMILANO is at low weights with the fly in jockey.
4. OYSTER BLUE is down in class. RED CAT has shown improvement, remains unreliable. PACE MAKER can knock them off with a forward run, may upset. EXTRAORDINAIRE is a “khhota”, has mostly been mulish. ROCK SOLID is the youngster on the up, should go all the way.
ROCK SOLID-PACEMAKER-RED CAT.
5. BAY OF THUNDER needs a bit more of the trip, will be tried anyhow. DA VINCI needs another chance, has been on the fringes. AIR FORCE ONE is bound to be in the fray, runs for 18th time in the season. RESILIENCE is the other one with equal number of runs and has a try jockey.
DA VINCI-AIR FORCE ONE-RESILIENCE.
6. ALABASTAR has handicap to defy, has potential to upgrade. DANCING BEAUTY is down in class and needs serious consideration at good odds. TAKING OVER can do better than last run. BURBANK was given an easy run last time. DAZZLE is down in weights and can go all the way.
DAYS BEST===ROCK SOLID

Posted by Sarat Sharma at 10:38 AM
1. STARFALL was slow off from gates, and bit the dust as a favorite, will most likely be fancied to win again, belongs to a very unreliable team of owner /trainer whose horses should not be backed even at a good handicap. ASHWA PUSHKAR returned in the same float as ASHWA PARWEZ after the wintering at the capital, have a look at his performance at Pune prior to that and you may be convinced that he is the horse to beat here. LYRICAL SYMPHONY won very well but has a weaker jockey now in higher class.
2. SCHNELL is the best horse here but has a mediocre jockey who has not ridden in races for years, Antia with three out of four runners is surely keeping all amused with his schemes. STAR TRAINER is a winner of 5 races, all at longer distances, but is most likely to repeat as the indicator’s are suggestive. HIGHLAND MUSIC looks to be a filler. DEMONSTRATOR has done enough in and out running , has a worse jockey than ever before.
3. SALT is likely to be the most sought after for this sprint, has tremendous initial speed and has been caught near the post on a number of occasions, the tracks are always fast. The dam of SALT used to race in a similar manner. On paper SALT looks a good thing. I feel AFSOON from the famous stables who has been running in and out is most likely to get close enough to worry the favorite, both have finished behind PRONTO PRONTO . LAKE ONTARIO is a speedy one who is working well. APHRODITE from the weak stables is half brother to BULLET, needs time to mature.
4. ASLAN looks improved after last run. SOONEEYO has run close on a few occasions, the 2nd in million race makes him top contender here, the tracks are fine and the poorly faring stable may get a winner . BLITZING has a good chance to fight out. SKYWAY is well bred, has been given number of gates, the dam was a black type and the trip is not a bother even in first run, of course the trainer is pitching only doubtful runners lately.
5. THRILLER is working well, last run was effective, trip is a bother. TELSTAR is due for an upset win, watch for support. COUGAR placed for first time as a 5 year old and is bound to be in the fray. SWEET NOTHING may run on board. FIERY FORTUNE started galloping when close home, looks good at low weights.
6. ZAAR is from a speedy mare, has worked well, the mocks were easy. HIGHWAY EXPRESS is from the speedy precocious sire and looks very impressive in tracks. OASIS GOLD is a decent got abroad who is moving attractively in tracks. SPRING BANK drifted in odds, led into the straight and folded up like many others ridden by C Rajendra, can’t judge the true version.
HIGHWAY EXPRESS-OASIS GOLD-SPRING BANK .
7. EMERALD STAR has tracked well, the trip is ideal. DEEP PURPLE is waiting for the gamble to unfold, may be the day as he is due to win. MARUDHAR RATAN is bound to speed up the pace like last time, may place. BANANA BOY was eased up by the rider in last run and denied to show out, the jockey switch does not encourage, as it is the trainer’s horses don’t win in Mumbai. CIRCUS RING may fight out, last run was suggestive. ATLANTIC STAR is tracking well, may be 1200 m is the right trip.
DEEP PURPLE-CIRCUS RING-ATLANTIC STAR.
8. NATIONAL IKON is a failed favorite who can do well with the champion jockey. ABSOLUTE RELITY needs more galloping space. LAST TYCOON finally won as a 6 year old, can place again. TZIGANE has the rider for a try. SHABDEEZ has come down the scales and looks good to me.
SHABDEEZ-NATIONAL IKON-ABSOLUTE REALITY
DOUBLE----------SALT X SHABDEEZ

TEASE ME has worked well, has won 3 races over sprints. HANA MONTANA is yet to earn money, the five year old has come down to the low scales.
THE REBEL-TEASE ME –SEEN IT ALL..
2. THE RIGHT MAN is an aged sprinter who is a winner of 6 races, may be ON. BEMISAAL was a surprise winner who decided to go all the way at good odds last time, has stiff penalty now. INSITE SOUL is a rogue horse, may be backed and the bookies can play around the odds. RAJDOOT was a close 4th, can open his account as a five year old. STUD OF GOLD has been downhill for last 3 years, watch betting trend.
STUD OF GOLD-RAJDOOT-INSITE SOUL.
3. HATLAMOFF has achieved the hat trick with out hiccups, will go for 4th, handicap is stiff. GO GUZZI GO has been given runs, may run for money now. SEXY EYES has been in fine form, the trip is longish. FIRE VAULT has the handicap in favor, age is the bother, may fight today.

MAGICAL MANTRA-APACHE INDIAN-ARSHAVIN.
6. OCEAN EMPEROR at top weight has the good rider, the horse is one paced. CATALYST from the very ordinary trainer was in betting order last time, lacks early speed though the handicap favors. VIVA LA VIDA was a disappointing runner when he ran below par, tracks are fast. CROWNED PRINCESS has been waited with, may strike as she was a very impressive winner in last years maiden win.
CROWNED PRINCESS-CATALYST-OCEAN EMPEROR.
7. BARTIMAEUS is the best bred who has been given a run. VICTORY ROAD is being urged for response in works, is nicely bred. MACHALA has been sharpened up well. MAHIMA is full sister to CRIMNAL LAWYER, comes into fighting picture based on last run.
8. OCEANIC WISDOM has worked very well and may repeat at top weight as he has age in favor. GENERALISSIMO may place. ROSE BOWL has a weak rider. CLOUD COVER has impressed in works, needs bit more of distance. STEELY DAN has not been able to pull it off, needs another look in this field.
STEELY DAN-OCEANIC WISDOM-CLOUD COVER.

1. AMAZING STAR was a forward runner last time and should do well again. BURBANK finished on nicely and should be in reckoning, has worked well. DAZZLING CRACKER was given a loosing ride, needs one more chance. TARANGERI and VASCONIA have chance to place.

5. MOVIE QUEEN has not been able to deliver this season, has come down in class. ODDS N EVENS is in winning form, has the jockey to do well again DA VINCI was not in the hunt last time, looks good to me based on the previous run when he ran 2nd. DREAM DEBUT has been running forward races.
DA VINCI-ODDS N EVENS-DREAM DEBUT.
6. MYSTIC MIRACLE can build up on last decent run. CANADIAN GOLD is well bred for this field, appears to have been kept in check for a gamble, watch rates? ADDICTION has the jockey at reasonable weights. BORJU AGAIN and FLYING ROCK are the other aged maiden’s who look to be in the hunt in this poor field. STAR SPARKLE is a winner of two races who is at low weights.

FANAA belongs to dubious connections, in & out runs make it difficult to gauge the correct potential, may run a forward race. VALOUR has low weights and is a speedy one.
3. MOJO belongs to a trainer known for bookies connection, has the fly in rider, watch for odds. DA VINCI ran on board after few runs and may be fancied to deliver now under the allowance jockey.

DA VINCI-MOJO-GAME OF TALENT.
4. GOOD WOOD PARK has to concede weight which is a worry over the wet track due to yesterday’s showers. MASTER BELIEF goes over the ideal trip, has run very close to the top contenders here. EQUAL LUXURY looks best on handicap but the short distance is a worry for the son of YOUNG SENOR. KING OF LORDS ran a very impressive win, may improve. WARRIOR RACE goes at low weighs and may run on board.
MASTER BELIEF-EQUAL LUXURY-GOOD WOOD PARK.
5. SONIC BOOM has been a money earned all through the season and despite the killing weight comes up fighting. REAL SMASHER is in top form and has lots of speed which may enable him to just pip MASTER BLASTER who ran close with him in 2000 Guineas and has weights in favor. MIDDLE MAN is a fringe horse with the next Jodha to fly in to the capital with some hope.
REAL SMASHER-MASTER BLASTER-MIDDLE MAN.

1. GUERNICA has been in betting order a couple of times in sprints, the distance appears steep for the horse under this weak jockey. COUGAR was a notable 2nd to ARDENT LOVER over a mile, can shine. TAANUSH is a horse who has come down a lot but has aged much, has been tracked after a lot of insipid runs, may upset. SACRED RELIC has been very inconsistent like most of his stable mates.

SILK CUT was a disappointing beaten favorite, may place. SURYAVEER was given an ordinary ride last time, his earlier 2nd was notable. BESAME MUCHO fought hard but lost as a favorite, looks to have improved much as is the case with good types of the top trainer. ELECTA is a speedy one who is working fast.
BESAME MUCHO-FORTUNE HUNTER-SURYA VEER.
7. CATALYST has not been able to deliver in spite of numerous efforts on part of this very ordinary trainer. OCEAN FAIRY has a lot to do now, last win appeared manipulative. CALL TO ARMS may run a forward race, impressed in gates. WILD IMAGINATION has to beat the handicap to win again. WINCHESTER is in winning mode, looks for the hat trick. SWISS BELLE is the one at low weights to upset all.
SWISS BELLE -CATALYST-WILD IMAGINATION.

1. SEA DIAMOND had won a year before, after being backed down to fraction odds. Don’t ask anyone where he has been prepared, he can go all the way if backed down. ALEUTIAN ZONE has been given an easy run last time, was an impressive 3rd before that. TEASE ME has tracked well. UNSTOPABBLE has an even worse jockey than last time, should remain a maiden.
SEA DIAMOND-ALEUTIAN ZONE- TEASE ME.
2. STAR BUILDER has been running in and out, top weight and a good jockey, make your choice. APACHE INDIAN has got down in scales. ARSHAWIN should be fighting out here, he is due to win.

TOMARROW DREAMS was a good winner who will be fancied again as the trend with this trainers wards who come to hand. FINAL AATACK has worked well. RAJDOOT may run well again. DOUBLE DELITE was a non interested runner, may surprise.
ASHWA PRAYAG-RAJDOOT-TOMARROW DREAMS.
5. DESTINED TO GLORY is a well bred full brother to black type DANCING DYNAMITE & BEAUTIFUL STRANGER, looks half prepared by the ordinary trainer. MASTER PRINCE is the other well bred full brother to VIOLETTA who is looking fit from tracks. RADICAL MACKIE has experience of number of runs. BLUE SKY may improve on last effort. STAFFAN impressed in gates, has a speedy pedigree.
MASTER PRINCE-DESTINED TO GLORY-RADICAL MACKIE.
6. CLOUD COVER has been kept easy all thru the season. SNOW QUEEN has worked well. STARFALL has a chance of going all the way. TWO TO TANGO has not looked like what he was last year, may rebound.
7. ASHWA GAURAV has a poor sire, the dam gave us speedy ALIYANA. BARTIMAEUS is well bred brother to OUR FORTUNE and CLARION CALL, looks half fit. DAREDEVIL is being scrubbed in works, last run was reasonable. PABLO NERUDA is the best bred from distaff side, RAHY’S SERENADE is the grand dam, the sire has been backward, may run well under the average jockey. BLESSED showed good speed last time, may run on board. MOUNTAIN MYNAH has worked well, why a weak rider from this stable?
8. OCEAN SONATA has the rider to deliver after last close failure. BLESSINGS flopped near the winning post. CEST LA VIE may show speed. SUNLIGHT MAGIC has an outside chance.
OCEAN SONATA-SUNLIGHT MAGIC-BLESSINGS.

ZOOMBASTIC has the ordinary fly in rider for the very ordinary trainer. LEGENDARY HERO has not raced for some time but looks fit from works.
3. Class 1 race in Delhi are like replays, the same runners with one or two changes from the previous contest, SONIC BOOM is winner of 12 races, threatens all even at 72.5 Kgs. ASHWA PRATAP has placed after long time and should improve by a few kilos. REAL SMASHER with age and form has all the chances of winning at short odds.
REAL SMASHER-ASHWA PRATAP-SONIC BOOM.
4. GENIOUS BOY is in form and has a chance with the allowance jockey. RED CAT is down in class, is unreliable. SKYROS was eye catching runner and can win on backing.

1. The good gamble of the owner Nirmal Singh on GOLDEN GUN on 19th Apr last year is still talked about, the bookies are sure to be wary of such a repeat. The horse has again been brought down to the same level after 11 insipid runs, if backed in the ring, be sure to get a fair price by a timely bet. FLYING CAT has come to hand and is bound to run a forward race with the rookie atop. ZINGARO has come down and may run for money. BLACK THUNDER has been given a couple of mocks and may fight out.
GOLDEN GUN-FLYING CAT-BLACK THUNDER.
2. PRINCE RAILCO has pleased in tracks. EL SALVADOR is working well. SILVER FLAMES is a speedy aged horse who has a decent rider to go all the way. STUNNING VIEW remains a maiden, has problems.
SILVER FLAMES-EL SALVADOR-PRINCE RAILCO.
3. SPARKLING GOLD has been running below par. AIR FORSE ONE is at a negative handicap despite a going away win. SUPREME VICTORY is a good type and needs to be backed again.
SUPREME VICTORY-SPARKLING GOLD.
4. MASTER BLASTER has a fighting chance against the better performed ROCK IT who has a distinct handicap advantage. BLUE LAGOON needs more of distance. SPOT HIT has come back to form and should run well. OYSTER BLUE has a decent chance to place.
ROCK IT-MASTER BLASTER-OYSTER BLUE.
5. ALABASTAR is by a decent sire and can improve on last effort. MASTER PRINCE has the rider to deliver again. UNGETTABLE BACHELOR is tracking well. DAZZLING CRACKER has been entrusted to an unknown rider to get rates, looks likely to hit the front and go away as the dam was very speedy and the horse was an eye catching runner last time.

6. FLYING MAJESTY is pleasing in works, has good speed. FEARLEWSS NEGOTIATOR has age against, appeals on handicap. DREAM DEBUT has a chance to do well. INDIAN BRIDE is the one at low weights who retains form to trouble all.

1. GUERNICA placed for first time and is sure to be tried now, she is well bred to show out now. OCEAN TREASURE is a failed favorite, the change of rider may help. SEEN IT ALL has come down in class, has won in higher class last year. EVANGELIST has low weights.
2. EQUALITY may run well, is known to bleed often. MEGABUCKS is sure to do well as the dam was a stayer , last run was good. CORGITO ERGO SUM has been a failure so far, the trip looks a bit far. ARZAAN veered out when in contention in last run.
MEGABUCKS-CORGITO ERGO SUM.
3. STAR VISION has been a flop so far, can not be considered at top weight. CONSTANZA has a jockey who may be interested. RAJDOOT appears to have come to hand, last run was encouraging. STOD OF GOLD has slid down the scales a long way, should earn before the season ends or go out to riding school for children. BEMISAAL has low weights, has been tried often.
RAJDOOT-BEMISAAL-STUD OF GOLD.
4. INVICTUS has been tracking pleasingly, has lots to catch up on previous run. JAVO is by a flop sire, last run was below par. PERSIAN is bred to stay, the full brother to black type OROCHI should do well here. HILLS AND STARS is another well bred daughter of the late sire RAZEEN who was eye catching in last run. KATHELYN ran well in tougher company, can show out.
HILLS AND STARS-KATHELYN-PERSIAN.
5. BLESSINGS has the fly in rider and is looking good in this weak field. PATEK PHILLIPE may run well. CAPT SMART from the hopeless stables has come don a lot, looks under fed. TOMMY CARMICHAEL was given a very easy ride in the made up race for M Narredu’s benefit last week.
BLESSINGS-TOMMY CARMICHAEL-PATEK PHILLIPE.
6. DEEP PURPLE has worked well earlier in the season, connections have been non interested so far. AZUL has been in earning form. ROYAL COMPANION is unreliable. ABSOLUTE REALITY may be tried, has done with this jockey on number of times. PTOLEMY has been kept in hiding since last surprise win.
DEEP PURPLE-ABSOLUTE REALITY-ROYAL COMPANION.
7. ADAM’S VISION has an outside chance to place. ARCTIC MINSTREL is being asked for effort in works. GOSSIP is by a black type mare and has shown out in works, the tracks alongside ELENA need to give some insight into the capability of this one. LAKE BEAUTY by a good sire has been a let down, may run on board.
GOSSIP-ARCTIC MINSTREL-LAKE BEAUTY.
8. SWEP AWAY is down in class. RISING GLORY was given a very easy ride to facilitate stable-mate to win, looks good if tried. RED TABASSCO can build up on last run.

RISING GLORY-RED TABASSCO-SWEPT AWAY.

1. NOU CAMP is the youngster in the group who was not able to topple the favorite WINCHESTER in the last run, has a chance to win in this weak field. HICKORY has been inconsistent in runs and can not be seriously considered for win. WATCH OUT has never ever placed, has a chance today. UNSTOPABBLE is still a maiden at six and has often failed on backing. Antia has four runners, may be the about to be retired NUNCIO is tried for place money.
2. PROUD STAR is from a scheming pair of trainer /owner, should be trying today. BANANA BOY has the erring rider returning from suspension, has got to get back to the basics of riding before trying a horse. TUDOR REGENT from Lagad’s trio appears to be the choice who will ride for money, has won at this distance and weight last year. CIRCUS RING is filly with problems, has been given a couple of mocks, maybe the well bred responds in her maiden run.
TUDOR REGENT-PROUD STAR-BANANA BOY.
3. ICON is at a disadvantage on handicap vis a vis STARRER, the latter can win as he has been held back in most of his runs this season, the rider is most un reliable on favorites. LIVING THE DREAM is going to look for place money.
4. IKARIA has been given a number of gates, has top weight . PEPE JUNIOR is a fine old game horse who can warm up to it. SUCCESSOR was looking to upset in the sprinter’s cup hundred yards from the finish, has scales in favor.
5. GOLDEN HEART returns from niggles, should be running for testing fitness. LYRICAL SYMPHONY should do well over the trip with the good rider. AMORA belongs to perhaps the second best trainer of the circuit, the unique thing about the professional being his ability to get almost all his fit horses to defy penalty and win twice in a few runs during the season, AMORA has a chance to do one better here as the last win was very easy. MONEYBAGS appears to be getting to hand after problems, has been given a couple of mocks.
6. MARTINIQUE is a well bred who showed out in the Poonawalla multi million, has tracked well. LAKE SUPERIOR could not concede weight in the million run, has a chance here. LIMITLESS HILLS ran well above expectations in his win, may surprise. REIN IN SPAIN can fight out as he is bred for speed, the rider is a dilemma, has been taking his rides easy when not interested and getting away with it due to inaction by the concerned authorities. SONEEYO has low weights, last run was suggestive.
MARTINIQUE-LAKE SUPERIOR-REIN IN SPAIN.
7. GLORIOUS MISS has placed in last five runs. CARAMEL is from the good trainer who will be looking to win second time even with this nine year old, the tracks are pleasing. EYE OF THE STORM is most likely to be tried at longer odds from the Lagad’s trio. SILVER SCREEN is the quickest and has the doing well jockey.
EYE OF THE STORM-CARAMEL-SILVER SCREEN.
8. DICTATOR has taken a long time to get ready to race, may do well. ALIYANA was eased up to loose in last run, has a worse off jockey today. EMERALD VALLEY is speedy and can fight out if tried. DAFFODILS was eye catching in last run, may finish on. ZARACHA from the hopeless stables has been tracking well, has been kept in check in most runs, looks good on handicap.
1. TEMPTING THOUGHT is a good type who defied the handicap to win last time, has the best jockey for repeat. AWESOME is a well bred who won in first appearance and should be watched. WHIFF OF MONEY ran well enough in mocks.
2. NEKO has handicap in favor, the opposition is very weak. NARMADA has done nothing so far. ASCOT HUNTER returns from niggles, has worked well. ROYAL AHEAD has been tracking and should do well at these weights.
3. KAMAKHYA has to beat the penalty. GORGEOUS BLUE is an aged horse who has speed, may run well. WHAT A SIGHT is coming down in scales. FLYING ROCK is a 7 year old who has never placed in life, has been regular in tracks and belongs to a trainer known for his gambles at the end of the season. SHAITAN is at ideal handicap to win with this improved rider.
4. REAL SCOTCH likes this trip. MYSTIC MIRACLE won well and can place again. VARUN won a sprint, can get the distance. RESILIENCE ran a bad race, can shock as that is the general trend here with lots of in and out running of horses from strong connection stables.
5. BENEDICTUS looks totally out of handicap, has shown lots of vigor in last few runs. DAZZLING WISE will be trying to place. ROAMING FAME is an in and out runner, can do well. Handicapper has been very kind to FANAA, looks a winner based on last run.
6. DA VINCI Has been given easy runs. RAWSOM is down in class and has the rider to hit the front and go away. FEARLESS NEGOTIATOR has worked well. LITTLE MASTER is in fine form.. LITTLE CUT may get on board under this try rider.
RAWSOM-LITTLE MASTER-DA VINCI.
