SET ALIGHT appears cut above the other entrants for this grade 1 race. More than half of the runners are seriously no hoppers.Lack of entries from the stables of Byramji family & S Padmanabhan's stables has presented a very drab card.
POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1 TRAFALGAR SQUARE is a failed favorite, she will be involved at the finish in this weak set up. DARE YOU DO appears to have come to hand, can surprise. EVERY THING NICE is at a nice handicap. ROAD TO ROMANCE is set to run an improved run with the try jockey. ASPIRING SEVEN is a place hopeful.
ROAD TO ROMANCE-EVERYTHING NICE-TRAFALGAR SQUARE
2. ROYAL CHIEF has plenty of initial speed. KYLES OF BUTE is shining in tracks, unlike other produce of his sire who prefer firm underfoot conditions, this one perhaps loves the monsoon track. SPARSH has been sharpened up. FOREVER MARK, a full brother to PUISSANCE is working very well. ANOTHER DESTINY is speedy, the tracks are suggestive.
FOREVER MARK-ANOTHER DESTINY-KYLES OF BUTE
3. UNDUE was a noticeable 2nd to FLEETING ARROW in his only run at winters, he has been prepared under a riding boy, may be he is a good type? Looks that this full brother to decent FANTASY LAKE is a quiet fancy of the sporting owner. FLYFREE should run well at this distance under the mature rider. CELESTIAL TREASURE was finishing on in stable-mate GENTLE KNIGHT’S win last time, has a decent pedigree to fight out the issue. AHIRA is working well.
COPERTINA is well bred & tracking well.
4. LUMINOUS GOLD warmed up to an upset win in last run. MAN UNITED may place. CUTE STYLE won easily in a weaker set up. PERFECT ANALYSIS is a failed favorite who has the handicap in favor.
PERFECT ANALYSIS-LUMINOUS GOLD-CUTE STYLE
5. SHOOT A RAINBOW has a good pedigree, the horse was given an easy ride as a favorite. ALL MY COLOURS has staying bloodlines to improve over this distance. STAR WAVE is set to challenge the favorite again after having been beaten once at Mumbai. KIARA has been a top sprinter so far, the bloodlines do not give encouraging signs of staying, may run on board. SET ALIGHT looks outstanding from performance, preparation & breeding point of view.
SET ALIGHT-STAR WAVE-KIARA
6. STYLISH BAY has won at these weights over this distance in this class before. STRONG MINDED is a useful type. COMMON KNOWLEDGE has run some good races at Hyderabad, will be fighting out with the foreigner atop. ON A ROLL is a good sprinter who doesn’t need much morning work.
ON A ROLL-COMMON KNOWLEDGE-STYLISH BAY
7. MINT haas been working well to improve over her last run. READY TO MINGLE looks half prepared. CABOCHON looks in fine fettle. ASTONICAL has been well prepared. VOICE OF INDIA has a try jockey. ROYAL KILLY will look to be on board once again.
