1. FIRECRACKER was a good 3rd to ALASKA, should easily beat this lot. CAPTAIN’S ZONE is the surprise packet here as the trainer is known for not giving tracks. MYPETHONEY should run a close race up front. LATEST NEWS is a money spinner for the trainer, always in contention at low weights.

2. BLACK WARRIOR was a great gamble last time, has been penalized well. MEDTIA’S PRIDE is a speedy type, it had drifted out when loosing to TAPIS in a close finish long time back. TAPIS ran a good forward race last time, should be in thick of things here. MASTER PLANNER is being urged in tracks.

3. GREY ISLAND has run with better types in last run, the tracks are suggestive. OPTIMISM has been given enough runs. ARISTOCRATICAL has a slight edge due to the mature jockey. FOREST NATIVE is full brother to speedy CARLOS, has been prepared, the negative jockey is a ? mark.

4.KNIGHT OF WINSOR is from Derby producing line, the choice of jockey & lack of run is against the horse. BOURBON QUEEN was well in demand & ran a forward race in last race, the handicap & pedigree are in favor. STATJFORD was covering ground in the straight in last run. THANDA looks improved in works, this half brother to Hyderabad stayer GENTLEMAN’S DEAL should like the trip.
THANDA-BOURBON QUEEN-KNIGHT OF WINDSOR
5.SIROCCO was a good 4th, will be running a forward race. NATIVE STRATEGY was a notable 2nd, the rookie will try to get away. Why the connections have chosen to run RED ROMEO here for pittance when he could have easily contested the plums in Derby is a big surprise, expect un backable odds for this classic hope.
6.RED DAWN may run well. CATALYST has been fluent in trials, has a good jockey. DON’T BE SILLY impressed in mocks, there was just one poor competitor hence can’t judge the value of that effort. AMBEROGGIO has been held back for too long after the last run where it was a comfortable winner.
7.The most interesting race of the day with three very tired looking horses entered for the longest race of the country. NITROUS has been bringing the pack into the straight before fading out in last few runs. SILVER TERN has been running at tail end in all his efforts, the age is obvious negative. FLASHING FLAME is over raced, it faded out at the bend only in last run, the pedigree is against as well. I think weight favors FLASHING FLAME , may trudge in ahead on that factor.
DAYS BEST=====RED ROMEO
DOUBLE=======FIRE CRACKER & AMBEROGGIO
PLACE========MYPETHONEY, GREY ISLAND &SIROCCO
