3. AUTONOMY ,a brother to OLIVIA VALERE & ALL THE RAGE is showing out on tracks, all have to catch him. STAR PRESENTATION has been very well prepared & appears to be a good type as the breeding is tops. TROMOS is working well. HI DOLLY is working better than her elder sister DON’T BE SILLY, may place.
4.CALLING THE SHOTS runs once per season, appears to have problems. SAN JOSE is tracking well, the pedigree is suggestive. BEYONCE ran well in her maiden run to be supported today with a better jockey on top. XIAMEN is well bred who has not yet come to hand.
5. ABSOLUTE REALITY is working well. SUPREME FALCON is well bred. AURORA AUREALIS showed out in finishing on in her maiden run. The tracks are very suggestive as she is by the speediest mare produced in India during the last millennium. POMME DE TERRE is moving well in trials to be on board again.

6. SPIRTUAL HYMN was a good 2nd last time. WILD TEMPER may run on board. PILLATUS was not stretched in Pune, can win in this set up. PERSONIFIED trounced a weak field last time, has worked well with the top colt of the stables, should win again.
7. ALVIDA was too eager & lost due to early show in the Pune Derby. All have to contend with BOURBON KING who stands out for this classic. CAIRNDHU is the only unbeaten horse in the field, can improve. CZAR ALEXANDER ran below expectations in Pune Derby, can bounce back as the distance suits him. THE HURRICANE is a good type who may make it on board. ASTREA flashed on to be overhauled by SWEEPING SUCCESS , can make it if let loose at the right moment.
