POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. RAGS TO RICHES may not get such a chance to get the prize as the field is very weak . The choice of rider is a big disappointment, the trainer has not won a race for very long. SHAKTIMAN is known to sprint well. DESERT BLUE has been given gates, maybe the rider can go away from the poor lot of runners. LOVE FORTY appeals on handicap.
