1. BU ATTIFEL is an unreliable type, it has placed both times & will be involved under the foreign jockey. MUSTANG SALLY is being regularly worked but the distance is a bit sharp. ARBIAN HERO has not placed for long, this speedy type should go all the way. LATEST NEWS is a versatile old horse who regularly makes money.

2. FLASHING FLAME will be targeted for a hat trick, he is in top form. MILES AND MORE only runs well when backed. KINGDOM OF LOVE is running forward races. FIERY FORTUNE is at a low weight, the distance suits.
FIERY FORTUNE(6)-KINGDOM OF LOVE(3)
3. WILD TEMPER may not get this distance. ROCCOCO gives hope after placing last time, it has been prepared. SECRET PILGRIM is well bred & in good form. RAGHUVANSH was pulled last time as far as I am concerned though some may think otherwise, it has the blood lines to go over this trip, the handicap is good.
4. HEIFITZ does not appeal for a win. CYCLADES won well, has a rookie jockey for an outside chance. FESTIVE LIGHT is a speedy type, the rider is average. MONOPOLY could not match up to the too good ANGELS GLORY, looks good here. ZARZANTAINE may improve.
5. MYSTERIOUS HEIGHTS was ridden out to finish on board, he is tracking well. AEGINA named after the beautiful Greek Island has not been given an all out run, should be in the thick of things today. FULL FAITH is a speedy type, ran in front last time. SNOW BLIND was pulled in both runs at Mumbai, may be on the go now.

6. On paper AUTONOMY, the winner of PBM Million looks taller than the field. The worrying thing is the Pune track which tends to be soft & may be a genuine race run. JUVENTUS is the one who has run close to AUTONOMY in Mumbai, his last win was highly impressive. DIVINE is improved a lot, this son of the top sprinter TIDE OF FORTUNE finished on very well in last run. SALTORO & NORA are both well bred & won their last starts in style.
7. OYSTER PEARL finished on 2nd despite a slow getaway, the tracks are good. ENCELADUS is tracking well. ENGKEHART is showing fluency in trials, has a good jockey. RED INDIAN was eased up when it could not match up to the speedy CAIRNDHU, it may surprise at low weights. STAR ALWAYS won in record time, may repeat.
STAR ALWAYS(8)-OYSTER PEARL(1)-ENGLEHART(6)
8. VEERA WANG, a sister to black type CELTIC PRINCESS has been steadily prepared. LIVER POOL won comfortably & will be in contention again. Aptly named VIJAYI BHAVA has been running forward races. CENTRE OF ATTENTION placed both times, the tracks are suggestive.

9. MR GREEDY finally showed off his pedigree by thrashing the field in last run, will be involved from the word go. BLADE RUNNER has been a failure so far. SECRET TALK is working well after a decent 2nd.TOUCH OF LAND flopped in last run, it may also head for the hills of Ooty for private preparation & then recovering for all the efforts at Mysore next year.
