1. MILES AND MORE is tracking well, he is an out and out stayer who has not been tried in all his runs, looks good on handicap. FANTASTIC FURY comes into contention based on his last run. BLUE VISION has not been seen at Pune, definitely needs a race run , the mock race was notable.
MILES AND MORE-BLUE VISION
2. FREE SPIRIT may place, the rider is not good in sprints. WELLS FARGO ran suggestively last time. BORZU AGAIN is being urged in tracks. TE QUIERO has a place chance once again. MODESTY has been running in patches during Pune, may surprise.
WELLS FARGO-BORZU AGAIN-TE QUIERO
3. SEA SPARROW who is a half brother to ON THE DOT is shining in works. ASTRAAL was eye catching in final stages of her last run. BLUE DANUBE is half sister to good type MONOPOLY, should run well. NATOUCHKA was a notable runner in million race.
4. FIRE WITHIN is tracking well. SUPREME FALCON may try to hit the front and stay on. ALHOMARA has been a disappointment so far. GRACES is full sister to black type WAVES OF GLORY, for some reason she could not be trained to race so far. The number of gates indicate some problem with the filly.
SUPREME FALCON-FIRE WITHIN-ALHOMARA
5. ARTISTIC LIASON is working well after the last second. PALME D’OR is speedy. WAR CRAFT has flopped as a favorite, looks raw in works. PAPER KING is kept easy in tracks, the pedigree is promising.
ARTISTIC LIASION-PAPER KING-PALME D’OR
6. MONOPOLY is a good type who is reverse on handicap vis a vis SCHNELL who has the benefit of a run. FLAMES OF FIRE is an upset candidate. STAR ADVENTURE won as a good thing, has improved. BEE QUICK was a big disappointment last time as a favorite, it just folded against ordinary horses, can not be backed. BU ATTIFEL has learned to race only as a five year old, can run well here.
7. OASIS STAR is the champion sprinter of last year who lost due to change of venue in Pune. Now he is refreshing in works and should be a good thing. The threat may be from RUNNING BULL who was a good 2nd to RHAPSIDION SNOW. CZAR ALEXANDER looks good in works. REJUVENITE and PEPE JUNIOR are hopefuls.
OASIS STAR-RUNNING BULL-CZAR ALEXANDER
8. ROMANTIC IMPACT is greatly improved, all have to beat him. ROSE BOWL is running after a long time, can not be backed for win despite the good works. GOLDEN SYMBOL is working well. BELLA has been prepared well, low weight appeals.
ROMANTIC IMPACT-BELLA-ROSE BOWL
9. CHIEFTAIN has a positive rider switch. SECRET TALK can not be expected to run well with Narredu who is from Shroff camp. The well bred ARES( computer flicker), looks to have come to hand. HIGHLAND QUEST has been given a couple of gates. DYNAMITE may run on board.
10. ILLUSSIONIST who has been working very well with ARGENTINA & SEA PRINCESS looks good on track work. This brother to PILLATUS is conceding weight to the likes of FOREST NATIVE etc who are well hardened with runs. BELLIGRENT is well bred and may run well. FORCE OF LAW is in form.
FOREST NATIVE-ILLUSIONIST-FORCE OF LAW
