PS-A very mediocre racing card is to be gone through with bunch of ordinary horses participating. Watch out for Antia and H N Mehta’s horses as they have a habit of winning in doubles.
1.ZIPPITY ZIP was heavily punished to get on frame in last run. PAPER KING was a hot favorite by default a couple of months back, he will win at good odds some day. AMERICAN IDOL has been very well prepared by this lower level trainer. ABOVE ALL has a strong jockey.
AMERICAN IDOL-PAPER KING-ABOVE ALL
2. GOLDEN GRACE comes into reckoning based on the easy 4th in last run. SIOUX CHIEF is a failed favorite with a full allowance jockey. BLACK PARTRIDGE was kept back in last race, can run a forward race. RESILIENCE was a flying finisher under this aged jockey last time, the connections can not be trusted to try again. DANGEROUS BELLE who has been given a run appeals on Pune runs.
DANGEROUS BELLE-SIOUX CHIEF-GOLDEN GRACE
3. HIDDEN DRAGON won a start to finish mission in last run. THE BRAVE HEART is the other aged horse who can go all the way. HEIFITZ has really come down the slide, the field is so mediocre that he won’t get it this easy again. SEPIA TONE is capable of running start to finish. ARABIAN PRIDE may run a forward race.
HEIFITZ-THE BRAVE HEART-HIDDEN DRAGON
4. BLAZING SPEED was a good 3rd who can win here. ENCOURAGEMENT held on to win in the last scurry from WAR OF ATTRITION who finished on a bit late. PACEMAKER has a try allowance jockey to go all the way.
BLAZING SPEED-PACEMAKER-WAR OF ATTRITION
5. TELSTAR is maintaining good form in works. THANDA was a good gamble after being pulled by the canny Narredu, should run well again. LIGHTNING CAVALARY is a stayer who has won at these weights before. FOREVER AMBER is at ideal handicap, the distance suits.
6. AZUL is half brother to ROSE BOWL , he has been well prepared, the mock race should have brought him on. FIRST EMPIRE is a well bred who showed out in gates, the trainer has no confidence as the rider is weak. ADRIANA has been given a couple of easy gates. PRINCE OF TROY ran a good race, should show improvement. DIVINE GRACE was notable in mock race. HEREAFTER ran a good 2nd, this well bred should win comfortably now. RIVER RULE is a place hopeful. SARDINIA is a mediocre bred who is tracking well.
HEREAFTER-PRINCE OF TROY-RIVER RULE
7. CAN CAN is a gamble horse, the last run was an improvement. JOLTEON ran a forward race. UP NORTH has been subjected to good preparation, the jockey is going to force the issue. ORIENTAL JEWEL has been kept in check, may surprise.
UP NORTH-ORIENTAL JEWEL-CAN CAN
SHOULD BET====HEREAFTER and FOREVER AMBER
CAN BET=======BLAZING SPEED
MAY BET=======AMERICAN IDOL
