1. ILLUSIONIST was rushed too early and lost as an on money favorite, the rookie jockey has a task on hand. FRENCH KISS was an easy finisher in FLARING SON ’s race, has the correct rider now. DUTCH ART is by a good mare, the trainer doesn’t track his horses ,that gets him good odds at times. HIGHLAND QUEST may run better at this distance. NONIOS needs to be given another chance.CHOPSANI should win some day.
FRENCH KISS-NONIOS-DUTCH ART
2. FOREST FLAIR could not catch up up with the so far best juvenile VERSAKI, hence he looks to be a good bet here. SEA TREASURE won well, has to fight out. LUSTY is half sister to WAR CHILD , she is being scrubbed in tracks. LYRICAL LASS is full sister to BELLA, has an encouraging pedigree, may run a good race.
FOREST FLAIR-SEA TREASURE-LYRICAL LASS
3. CHEVRON who does not run two consistent races was a runaway winner, the distance will suit him. MATATA PRIDE has improved with each run, the trip should suit this well bred. FLARING SON looks difficult over a trip, the bloodlines are for sprinting, but who knows?
4. RED INDIAN has plenty of speed to go all the way. FLAMING ACE who is well prepared is at a stiff handicap[. ATHENA covered ground to be a good 2nd. ROMANTIC IMPACT is due for a win, the low weights may suit.
ROMANTIC IMPACT-RED INDIAN-ATHENA
5. DIVINE has the potential, has been held back. BELLA was a comfortable winner who is improved. GIANATASSIO had an easy run, looks at a good handicap. PATEK PHILLIPPE had impressed in Pune, why so much gap, the trainer can only answer.
6. SEA STORM with an ordinary jockey denied CZAR ALEXANDER to pass him, now with a clever and strong jockey he has the opportunity to fight once again at stiff handicap. SECRET PILGRIM was a comfortable winner who is fine trim.
CZAR ALEXANDER-SECRET PILGRIM
7. VERSAKI has the class and blood lines to win the top event as a favorite. GYPSY MAGIC who won a 1400m well at Bangalore has the services of a top fly in jockey. SHIEKHA blew away the field in a very fast race over a sprint, the blood lines are encouraging. QUEEN’S COLLECTION has worked well after coming here with a win at Bangalore. MIGHTY CRUSADER is full brother to STAR WAVE, he is most improved after the last hampered run.
8. GOT TO GO is working well. LA JOIE DE VIE is in fine racing form. CENTRE OF ATTENTION has a weak jockey. ITSRACINGAFTERALL with two mocks can go all the way. BOURBON QUEEN has broken the hearts of the connections many times, the trainer is known for spoiling well breds. HIGHLAND WARRIOR won in a poor field, has a chance to encore.
HIGHLAND WARRIOR-ITSRACINGAFTERALL-LA JOIE DE VIE
9. BORN DESTINY has come down in scales, he is working well. EXOTIC STAR has a positive rider switch. ARES is a very poorly named horse who is a poor finisher. KNIGHT OF WINDSOR and PSYCHIC POWER are two costly horses produced by classic type mares who have not nixed well with the controversial sire CHINA VISIT. Both horses have two mocks each, makes it an interesting event.
KNIGHT OF WINDSOR-ARES-BORN DESTINY
MUST BET=====FOREST FLAIR
SHOUD BET===GIANATASSIO and CZAR ALEXANDER
COULD BET==ROMANTIC IMPACT (B/W), VERSAKI
MAY BET====ITSRACINGAFTERALL and BORN DESTINY for place.
