1. DESDEMONA is full sister to SAFARI, this decently bred has raced in bigger company, looks good here. IBIS is well prepared sister to TULLAMORE, the rider is not doing any justice to his experience nowadays. LUSTY is sister to WAR CHILD, she is being urged in tracks. POUND FOOLISH, a poorly named speedy pedigreed horse has been bought in foal , why he has not been tracked? It is rather confusing when the trainers send out their horses with no evident tracks, the gate practice was fair but the true potential is not known.
2. BALANCE DE POWER was in reckoning in last run, it has been sent for gallops, the rider is ordinary, the horse has often been fancied but not won in last three years. ROCOCO had run 2nd in Indian 2000G in 2007. Though out of form it ran well enough last time, may deliver under the hard riding jockey. ARKHOS has been racing just about thereabouts, may improve.

3. A straight contest between the two- SEA TREASURE ran 2nd to the good sprinter FOREST FLAIR and has been continuously tracking, the dam was a speedy type. BLUE DANUBE won the last sprint in good time a long way from home, this full sister to MONOPOLY has to progress, but the will to win is not evident in the preparation. CHECK HER OUT is showing out in tracks.
SEA TREASURE-BLUE DANUBE
4. GUNS N ROSES is brother to BARBARA, the last track was extremely smart. TORA BORA is by the highly rated sire who has given us VERSAKI the top juvenile so far, he looks a cut above the rest as the tracks are very pleasing. MOON FLOWER has an ordinary jockey but it ran a decent race against RIDING FANTASY last time. RIDING FANTASY has a good jockey after the last eye catching run when not in odds.

5. MARINE ZONE has a moderate Mysore jockey, the horse has been prepared by this non performing and "once in blue moon" type of trainer. THEODOROS comes into reckoning based on the first time run on board, the jockey has a tough job on hand as some runners are hiding true potential. SOLID ROCK has a jockey who can deliver if the desire to do so is there, the horse was knocking for a win at Pune. BRAVE ACT has a positive jockey switch.
SOLID ROCK-THEODOROS-MARINE ZONE
6. HIGHLAND BOUNTY won as a good thing from the front, may do it again. MOONSTORM is in good form, this younger brother to HEIFITZ is speedy. PACEMAKER has another allowance jockey this time for a runaway attempt. MASTER CRAFT has come down a lot, the number of gates and the mocks put him up for a try now though the jockey is as good as a riding boy. CLARION CALL failed as a favorite, can not be considered in this class.
MOON STORM-PACE MAKER- HIGHLAND BOUNTY
7. DAFFODILS is held back for a surprise, it has capabilities to upset. HIDDEN DANGER is a front runner. POLARISER has again been shifted to a new trainer, the horse remains an enigma. GLORIOUS SPIRIT was a fast finisher in EXCELLENT STORY’S race, the good jockey can deliver now. ANAMIKA is at low weights.
