POINTERS & SELECTIONS
1. GRIS RAPIDE was a faraway 2nd, the other stalemate SPICY STAR has better credentials but the choice of rider suggests that he is not forward yet. ONE has run with better types, the horse looks prepared, may win. FANTASTIC FLAME has not done anything so far, may run on board in this poor field.

He is full brother to useful CAIRNDHU , will be fighting for supremacy. FOUR SEASONS is working well. GLORIOUS PRINCESS is very consistent, will try to place again. CHIMERIQUE has run notable races at Mumbai, looks well prepared after a mock race ,but the choice of a work jockey shows lack / over confidence on part of connections.
