1. DINGLE has been backwards, can show improvement in this small field. LADIES CROWN is looking well in tracks. MUCH FASTER ran poorly last time, can win over this distance.
LADIES CROWN(4)-MUCH FASTER(5)
2. GANDIVA is a speedy type who has a try jockey. NUCLEUS may find the distance a bit sharp. TRUE BEAUTY is likely to run a better race now with a try/ allowance jockey. EXALTED is likely to contest the issue from the word go.
3. SAM ALDO is notable in tracks. KERRY BLUE is showing plenty of speed in works. SANGREAL is tracking fine. CHANDRA KANTA may improve on last run.
KERRY BLUE(4)-SAM ALDO(1)-CHANDRA KANTA(8)
4. ASHWA PRATAP who is a good type has been well prepared. PALADIN is coming up this season. MIDDLE MAN is good in handicap but the extra distance is a bother. FRAUD is in good shape, the good jockey may see him through.TRUSTED FRIEND is at a low weight.
MIDDLE MAN(5)-ASHWA PRATAP(3)-FRAUD(!3)
5. FIRST N IMPRESSION won under a moderate jockey, the latest works show the tremendous improvement. GALLOPPING GOLD MINE is bound to fight it out today. PHI was given a poor ride, can surprise. LOVELY GUERDON has won under this jockey at this handicap before.
FIRST N IMPRESSION(1)-GALLOPING GOLD MINE(2)-LOVELY GUERDON(6)
6. FERALIGATOR was not ridden to win last time. CROSS WORD has been prepared. POWER ZONE is looking very fresh in tracks, the aged horse should run well here. RAINBOW SHINE was pulled on opening day, may run well now.
FERALIGATOR(1)-POWER ZONE(5)-RAINBOW SHINE(6)
7. NORTHERN PRINCE ran a disappointing race, needs another chance. FIXED DIVIDENT has a top jockey. NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE may place. FIVE STAR appeals at the low weighs.
