POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. JUST GREAT was given an easy ride, may be tried here. ONE FINE DAY is brother to speedy YANTAI & black type PROTEUS, may run a forward race. ARTISTIC EMPEROR was a faraway 3rd, can be in the thick of things as the jockey is doing very well. STAR LEAGUE is half sister to DOCK OF BAY & NOBLE GUEST, the preparation is suggestive.
STAR LEAGUE-ARTISTIC EMPEROR-JUST GREAT
2. COSTA MESA is by a speedy dam, it has a decent chance if tried. LOTUS LEAF led all the way to win, maintains form & the allowance jockey gives her an edge. BAFFLED is an unlucky horse who has mostly been pulled in racing, running after a long lay off. RAIN MAN appeals at the low weights.
LOTUS LEAF-COSTA MESA-RAIN MAN
3. TOMSK must be gladdening the hearts of the connections, his last two wins were eye-catching. SOUTHERN SUMMIT is from the very productive ZYNA’S GLORY line, his 3rd to JUVENTUS in Mumbai was a noteworthy effort, , impressed in a mock race & will be keenly watched by the owner who is now looking at his collection with the big feature races in mind. CLEVER PLOY is a place hopeful. INSPIRING TRUST did not do anything when sent to Mumbai, she is looking good in tracks, should fight all the way.
SOUTHERN SUMMIT-INSPIRING TRUST-TOMSK
4. AMAZING FLORA is not a reliable horse. RUNNING MAN was well supported in his last endeavor, should improve as the jockey continues his association. TOUCH OF PARADISE needs more distance. ASTONICAL can run a good race on level getaway. DARE YOU DO showed improvement in last run, can win if tried.
DARE YOU DO-RUNNING MAN-ASTONICAL
5. DISTINCTLY AHEAD has been well prepared, can win in maiden attempt. ANOTHER DESTINY is showing speed in tracks. ABS FABS is sister to FIGHTING STAR & HAVANA GOODTIME, a precocious pedigree, the horse is fit but the jockey is known for in –out running of his charges. FIRE OF JOY is working well. SIMPLE appeals on her last 2nd to REGAL RANSOM who won again.
ABS FABS-DISTINCTLY AHEAD-SIMPLE
6. IN THE ZONE has been fooled around with, can win if fully on. BEE THE STAR is a good type, was pulled last time. ASIATICUS has come down in scales, may run a good race. AFEA is a speedy type. ZAFAR is very well prepared.
IN THE ZONE-BEE THE STAR-ASIATICUS
7. DIABOLICAL has been working well, the mocks should have sharpened him up. SWEEPING SUCCESS has been a success story last year & maintains form. NOBLE PRINCE looks very well prepared. VANQUISH was a very convincing winner last time, may show more improvement.
SWEEPING SUCCESS-NOBLE PRINCE-VANQUISH
8. ECHOES OF LIGHT has not been prepared, likely to go for an exercise only. COMPTON STAR appears to be in some form, may show improvement. STAR PRESENTATION is a classic hopeful from the top stable, all have to catch him. VAN DE STAR has not justified his capabilities so far.
STAR PRESENTATION-COMPTON STAR-VAN DE STAR
9. SUPER WOMAN is showing speed in tracks. SUN ZONE ran very well last time in tough company, may need more distance. ACT SMART is a speedy type with a jockey who won on him last year. AWESOME BEAUTY was a disinterested runner last time, can win at this handicap.
AWESOME BEAUTTY-SUPER WOMAN-ACT SMART
