1. CLASSIC SPIRIT has come to hand as a four year like most runners of this trainer, she was a comfortable winner & should be trying to defy the penality . MELBA has been given a run, may place. TE QUIERO has a handicap chance, this trainer does not believe in tiring his horses by giving tracks. BLACK WARRIOR was a game tryer last time, the distance may be sharp now. STUBBS is a place hopeful.
TE QUIERO-BLACK WARRIOR-CLASSIC SPIRIT
2. LIVERPOOL looks good breeding wise but has flopped as a racer like his elder brother ASSOCIATOR. RUBAIYAT impressed in a mock race, the trainer has four runners pitched in. AMBER CAT is half sister to speedy MING, she is being urged in works. YAAN was a faraway 3rd to RAGHUVANSH, the last run was disappointing. FOREST MUSIC is the other one from the leading trainer.
3. ARABIAN SPEED is maintaining form. QUEEN’S COURT may improve. TOOFAN MAIL has been bought on by the runs, appeals on handicap. PREMIER QUEEN has done nothing to justify the classic breeding, appears to be a shy one. AMARANZA is a game tryer.
TOOFAN MAIL-ARABIAN SPEED-PREMIER QUEEN
4. SPARTA kicked clear of the contestants last time unlike in its previous runs when it was shy to pass, should win again. ENCOURAGEMENT is well rested after her win. XIAMEN led & went away to win, will be in the fray again. SHAKTIMAN has won both starts well, why not have another go?
5. ES SIDER is full brother to speedy NITROUS , the preparation is good. KAPATHOS , a half brother to useful ALAMSHARA is working well RECARDO is bred in the blue, son of black type CASTLE PARK & the grand dam being MYSTIC MEMORY. He had finished 2nd despite the lack of interest on part of the jockey ( it appeared a made up race was granted to the generous owner of HIGHLAND BOUNTY), should not lose based on that run.
SHARE MY DREAMS ran well enough last time.
RECARDO-SHARE MY DREAMS-KAPATHOS
6. HIGHLAND BOUNTY had won without being challenged last time, looks in good form. IL DIVO won well but has not been rested enough. SECRET ADMIRER ran a pathetic race as a favorite, he is capable of a better show as the pedigree is very speedy. ARTISTICAL may place. BEE QUICK bled as a favorite in Mumbai, the preparation is suggestive to say this well bred has a good chance here.
BEE QUICK-SECRET ADMIRER-ARTISTICAL
7. WILD TEMPER is working well, remember he beat OUR EXCELLENCE last year. SPIRITUALL ran 2nd to too good OUR EXCELLENCE, he is attractive in tracks. TIGRESSE NOIRE goes over her pet distance. OYSTER PRINCESS is a speedy type. FAIR TACTICS was a very impressive winner in a sprint, why have they pitched her here?
SPIRITUALL-TIGRESSE NOIRE-WILD TEMPER
8. HEIFITZ ran well enough in last run, may need a bit more distance wise. DON’T BE SILLY has been playing truant, can speed away. TEARAWAY may run a forward race. PREMIER PERCEPTION was a notable disinterested runner last time. KISS AWAY is a sparingly raced sprinter who is at an ideal handicap.
KISS AWAY-PREMIER PERCEPTION-HEIFITZ
9. INDIAN SUMMER won well but the additional distance is a bother. BLUE MOUNTAIN is a full brother to good type ECHOES OF LIGHT, the last run in SALTORO”s win has bought him on. EQUALITY covered lots of ground in both its runs, the stayer bloodlines will ensure it fights out at this distance.
DOUBLE========SPARTA & BEE QUICK
PLACE=========XIAMEN, TIGRESSE NOIRE & EQUALITY
UPSET=========DON’T BE SILLY
