1. MODESTY ran 4th as a favorite, she has a better jockey now. KING OF THE RING comes out better when one sees the results of Race number 4. CHARGING RHINO ran a forward race in last run, will try to do well again. GANADOR is at low weight.
KING OF THE RING(3)-MODESTY(1)-CHARGING RHINO(6)
2. SCHNELL is attractive in morning work outs. FIREFOOT has not shown the turn of foot of Mumbai season. MONOPOLY was a runaway winner who maintains form.
3. HAPY RETURNS was impressive in finishing on in last run. HIGHLAND CROWN is bred well, he is half brother to DIEGO RIVIERA & FRIDA KAHALO. The horse has been painstakingly prepared for this rich Salver Race. TELSTAR was a good 2nd over 1600m last time, will try to force the issue. BOURBON QUEEN is a well bred hopeful.
4. GOLDEN KINGDOM ran way behind in SAP Million but comes into contention in this mediocre group. He is showing lots of early speed in works. SARJERAO has improved, the last run was quite forward. EXCELLENT GIFT is a failed favorite, may place. YAMUNA is tracking well, may run well in first run.
GOLDEN KINGDOM(3)-SARJERAO(4)-EXCELLENT GIFT(7)
5. GRUEZI is returning this side after summering in Bangalore, it was beaten by PERSONIFIED last season narrowly when conceding weight. PERSONIFIED could not catch up with YANA when carrying 6.5 Kgs more. YANA has age & form on her side. NANJING , a Razeen mare is bound to improve as the track firms up.
6. LIL MISS SUNSHINE is showing out in tracks, does not appeal on pedigree as Ontario has produced sprinters only so far. RAGS TO RICHES was an easy 4th, the rider switch by ‘ once in a blue moon’ type stable is noticeable. VARUN & JOHNNY BRAVO have both won under these very riders respectively at these very weights over this very distance before.
RAGS TO RICHES(7)-JOHNNY BRAVO(10)-VARUN(9)
7. SEA GULL was a runaway winner who is maintaining form. RED CLOUD may profit from the mocks & the tracks. SARAAH is being brought to shape. CARAMEL has not earned anything for years, has to get into the act some day. LOVELY FEELINGS is in fine form.
CARAMEL(7)-SEA GULL(2)-RED CLOUD(3)
DOUBLE======MONOPOLY & GOLDEN KINGDOM
