1. RUBAIYAT impressed in gate practice, the few runs were poor during last season. SECRET AGENDA has a weak jockey. ADAM’S LAW ran well enough at Pune to be in reckoning here, the tracks are fine. AMBER CAT has not worked but may run well.
ADAM’S LAW-RUBAIYAT-SECRET AGENDA
2. SLIK KIT was given what can be termed as dubious ride when running as a favorite under N Rawal. The horse is moving well in tracks. CHAMBERLAIN could not be trained last year due to some problems, the pedigree is suggestive & the tracks are very attractive, may run a winning race but can not be backed first time out. ZEN was an unimpressive runner last week. EASTER LILY is sister to speedy SALANDRA & SNAP DRAGON, will be in the fray.
SLIK KIT-CHAMBERLAIN-EASTER LILY
3. GEOMETRIC is the best bred in this race, he is brother to sire ROSMINI, & black type ONLY FOR GOLD, may surprise. SEA OF KISSES should be considered based on his run at Pune. This brother to BLUE MOUNTAIN & ECHOES OF LIGHT has potential. CARMEN is the first serious runner from the first time sire IKHTYAR, the breeding is for more distance. The filly is showing out in tracks& should put up a fighting show.
SEA OF KISSES-CARMEN
4. CYCLADES was a let down in 1000m, can not be fancied here. VEERA WANG had won impressively at Pune and has been working well. RAQUEL is coming out from set back, needs this run.WILD TORRANADO ran good forward races at Pune, may surprise. SECRET ADMIRER has run with better types in million races, the handicap suits.
SECRET ADMIRER-VEERA WANG-WILD TORRANADO
5. HIGHLAND CROWN is a good type brother to DIEGO RIVIERA, he is bound to progress in class.It had beaten CHIOS who was an impressive winner last week.CHEVRON had run a suggestive race in Pune, it should do well at this distance. SHARE MY DREAMS is working well, it won a maiden’s race comfortably.beating THANDA who has handicap in favor now.
6. ARTISTIC LIAISON may find the trip a bit sharp. BLUE JAY is a well bred who lost last week due to a nervous rookie. RULE OF LAW is speedy. Watch out for CLOUD COVER from the canny trainer who wins with horses without any track work to give away his intentions.
BLUE JAY-RULE OF LAW-ARTISTIC LIAISON
7. STAR CRUSADER is tracking very well, but he is unreliable type from the failed sire. MR GRREDY has been given a run, has a try jockey. ARK’S ANGEL has won in poor company at Pune, can not be considered here. GO GUZZI GO & RISING HERO have contested over staying distances before, GUZZI is working well. VANTAGE is showing out, has the mature jockey at low weights.
VANTAGE-GO GUZZI GO-MR GREEDY
8. BARBARA has a good chance after last run. ARGENTINA is made to run at 1600m in first run after some good tracks, can not be expected to win despite the good breeding and the jockey. MAGIC MANTRA may run well. HI DOLLY was a good 2nd over 1800 at Pune, now has a chance to score as the trainer has been tracking his horses after being in hibernation.
DAYS BEST====BLUE JAY
DOUBLE======HIGHLAND CROWN & VANTAGE
