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.

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.

GENTLE KNIGHT was a big let down in last run, it was backed down heavily but did not get into action when the race came to a boil, may be it was a ruse of the cany owner. GO GUZZI GO was a good winner, can fight out here also. TSESEBE is by the black type ESTONIA, the weights & the good rider give her a decent chance.
GENTLE KNIGHT-DANCING DYNAMITE
5. CAIRNDHU is in irresistible form, winning the last start in record time, the choice of the rider is questionable. LAGO MEDIO is a good type sprinter who is favored on terms vis a vis the last time. OYSTER COVE is a good horse, the last run was disappointing. ESCARVOS is a speedy type, the tracks are good.
6. STAR IMPACT has a precocious breeding, the preparation has been noteworthy, may need this run. In Mumbai he had finished on late in SENTINEL’S win. MISTER FIXIT is in forward condition.

1. ZEN was a faraway 4th in last run, the jockey switch brings him into fighting line. BLUE JAY is by the black type speedster SCENIC ROYALE who has produced nothing much so far, may show some improvement in this company. SECRET GLORY looks absolutely outstanding here based on her runs in classic company in Mumbai, the rider is to confuse one & all with ulterior motives on part of the connections. WINGS OF ANGELS is by the best performing sire at this race course.

4. PERSONIFIED is a good type , his win in a start to finish over 2400m at Mumbai was noteworthy, however the trainer is a let down this season. NITROUS is a speedy horse who will hit the front to run away. AQUILO is at ideal handicap, the age & step up in distance may be a stopper. YANA a dope sufferer who was disqualified after she won the OAKS has to improve in scales after her last easy win in a poor class.
5. The race is to be fought out by the two, ie; RAGHUVANSH & IKARIA. RAGHUVANSH is nicely bred being full brother to black type GRUEZI, the last win was authoritative . IKARIA is receiving 7 Kgs , he is half brother to speedy AVEC PLAISIER, the tracks are speedy. The handicap favors IKARIA slightly but from the prospect of sires, ROYAL KINGDOM has been producing some top horses like HOLDING COURT etc. whereas JUNIPER has yet to produce a noticeable runner. WAR OF ATTRITION is the other hopeful in the field who has worked well but has a rookie jockey ( this year the new comer jockeys look totally out of depth in their rides).
