1. ELEMENTO CODE was slow off last time, early it ran 3rd to WEIZOU, the allowance jockey should try here. STRATFORD ran on board without being urged, the positive jockey switch be noted. MUSICAL RHYTHM has been prepared. ARISTOCRATICAL who finished on well under a foreign jockey is sent out with a modest rider. FOREST NATIVE is due to win any day.

2. COTSWOLD ARMS has raced with better types, has a better jockey and trainer. SECRET PILGRIM is game for this distance, it has won six races compared to five by the opponent.
3. FLAMING ACE had warmed up to win on the post, the penalty is stiff. ROCOCO has been geared up after a long hibernation period, may run well. CARLOS was a runaway shocker who got nabbed on the post, has a chance to redeem.
4. CABRIOLLET is bred in blue, the last run was educative only. SALUTE THE STAR was a good 2nd to JAQUELINE who ran well in PBMM. CAUSTIC FINALE ran well up in all runs, the tracks are good. DESERT QUEEN has been very well prepared, the mock race was indicative, the breeding commands respect. SNOW QUEEN was a notable racer in last run.
SALUTE THE STAR-CABRIOLLET-DESERT QUEEN
5. RAGE OF ANGELS surprised both the owners and the trainer in last run, both were nearly convinced to retire her. RISING HERO appears out of form. CAVARDOSSI has a handicap jockey to neutralize the impost. WESTERN CHALLENGE has been a failure so far, last time it was deliberately done, this trainer is known for first loosing on such types and then getting his way, the handicap suits the horse very well.
WESTERN CHALLENGE-RAGE OF ANGELS
6. BELLA is in fine form, the weights are a scare. FORBES LIST is a fine type. STAR ATTRACTION got piped on the post, looks to redeem as there are six horses from the same connection and he appears to be the key runner. RECARDO is the well bred with a good jockey, the last failure was a dampener.
STAR ATTRACTION-RECARDO-FORBES LIST
7. BASKERVILLE is brother to the Delhi Champion Horse BRAHAMPUTRA, the top Delhi jockey is to ride this decent colt. SAN RAFAEL is precociously bred, the tracks are good. TRIUNFO was a good 2nd. BLUMARINE was an eye catching finisher, the preparation is fine. ESTEVEZ ran like his dam who was a bullet like racer in scurries. STAR CROWNED is full sister to celebrated HAUNTING MEMORIES, the last run was suggestive.
8. Please see my post of two days back for comments on the runners
9. HYMNS TO FREEDOM has run some good forward races with top weight, the rider is strong. STEFANO won as a good thing, has an allowance jockey for try on repeat . THE TEMPEST won from way back, retains form. FLYING ARROW is the “masala horse”, it was denied to win both times it appeared on race track, the handicap favors. If the owner wins any other race before this one, the horse may shine. HIGHLAND FLAME won a methodical race in lower class.
FLYING ARROW-HIGHLAND FLAME-THE TEMPEST
10. WHIT HART LANE is one paced, can not be considered for win. CHANDELIER has an allowance jockey after last win. ELEGANTE was nabbed by FLYING SPIRIT, has an allowance jockey for change of tactics. ALEXUS is the most decently prepared horse who has a good fly –in jockey.
DAYS BEST====SET ALIGHT
DOUBLE======STAR ATTRACTION to FLYING ARROW
