1. The last two runs of RULE OF LAW need to be ignored, he had run some suggestive races at Pune. TATTENHOE has run better than most horses here at some point or the other, the recent form is not encouraging. ALHOMORA may run a forward race under the rookie, can not be backed for win. HIGHLAND VISION has the best jockey, the last run should have bought her on.
HIGHLAND VISION-TATTENHOE-RULE OF LAW
2. MASEEHA won very easily over a trip, has to carry a load though. DESERT DUST won warding off, has a decent chance for encore. SKYWARDS is a total stayer who is going at low weights, may upset.
3. CLASSIC STAR is in good form for a crack at hat trick. DANCING GLORY is a good type who won two impressive races last Mumbai season. ROSE BOWL is showing out in tracks, the last run needs to be ignored . PRETTY COMMISSION took down lots of confidently bet money in last run. CHIOS has the handicap edge, the jockey has a job on hand against some good ones in the field. SIERRA VISTA is very attractive in works, the last run was suggestive.
`ROSE BOWL-CLASSIC STAR-SIERRA VISTA
4. STEP BY STEP has the benefit of a gate practice after the easy run. MRS JONES is bred for speed, has a try jockey. NONIOS ran a very close race at Pune, may run well under the aging jockey. PHOSPHOR is still a flop.SECRET AFFAIR has the fly in controversial jockey.
MRS JONES-SECRET AFFAIR-NONIOS
5. CLARION CALL disappointed in last run as a favorite. ABSOLUTE REALITY appeals on the last run. STUD OF GOLD is due for a win. GAME OF POWER was an encouraging 4th. ZEN appeals on handicap.
STUD OF GOLD-ZEN-CLARION CALL
6. CLASSERVILLE comes into reckoning based on PBMM run, but it is conceding 3 kgs. CAMBRIOSSO is well bred who ran a good 2nd, has been prepared. RIVER CHIEFTAIN , half brother to STAR PRESENTATION was a good winner who is maintaining form.
7. SPITZ is a good sprinter who has improved with each run. FEET OF FLAMES has been well prepared. STAR IMPACT was a very comfortable winner who can do well again. ROMANTIC IMPACT should have won last time, unfortunately the weak rider is repeated.
FEET OF FLAMES-ROMANTIC IMPACT-SPITZ
8. CAPTIVATING is a good type winner of three races who has to contend with new and dry terrain of Mumbai , can not be backed . HARMONICA was given a loosing race and yet managed to win with a good turn of foot, has to be in the reckoning. RIVER BLOSSOM ran a forward race in PBMM, has an outside chance here. THE PEARL is the best bred, well prepared filly who veered out in last run.
9. LAGO MEDOI is at a suitable handicap for upset. PEPE JUNIOR, SPICA and SHYBOY have run close to each other in the last couple of runs, any one can get the finish earlier.
10. BOLD BABE was good 2nd, has the same jockey repeating. ADAM’S LAW was an easy winner who is well rested. FASCINATION surprised all with last win, can not be considered for repeat as the field is tough now. KAPATHOS is a speedy type, can win only if not a favorite under this canny rider. CLAS has been mock racing, may run well.
