1. ZANGI has won with this rider at these weights over the same distance before. Irrespective of the rider I feel VICTORIA is a problem horse and may not win. STILLATO has been tracking and the mysore jockey has a chance. MEXICAN WAVE is an unreliable type old horse who has come down a lot.
2. MOJO is working well and should like the short trip. DEVIL GRANDMA is impressive in works after the surprising good run . STAR GLEAM is decently bred. ONE TRACK MINDED ran with superior company last time and is presently tracking well.

3. DARK TAN is a forward runner, may place. PINNAKINI has come to hand with the last good effort and has a chance with the front riding jockey. ROMANCE IN THE AIR was a surprise winner who looks improved. SHE’S BIG has come down a lot to shock with the much improved jockey. VODOO MOON is tracking well.

4. STEP IN STYLE is by a mare who has produced trash, may run a forward race. LUSH LASHES has been beaten on a number of occasions. ALESCIS warmed up well in her inaugural run and should be the one to improve most. AMAZING QUEEN is just about there in this crowd.
ALESCIS-STEP IN STYLE-LUSH LASHES
5. VAYU PUTRA has a tough load to carry, should still place. FANTASTIC FLAME was a fluent winner who may repeat. MONARCHIAL with the rookie jockey won very easily, may encore. GLORY BOUND has been very badly handled by this below grade trainer, appeals still. MUDEER POWER may run well.
GLORY BOUND-MONARCHIAL-FANTASTIC FLAME
6. D’ARTAGNAN was a talk horse of winters who flopped at miserly odds on the final day. Since then he has improved and his beating of ASTRAL FLASH who finished 3rd in Derby is a pointer. The horse is best in tracks and the trip within compass if taken to the front. BOURBON BAY was given an awful ride when it had no business to loose in last run, today the stakes are much higher for the greedy owner. CORBETT has won at the highest weights in this field in class III. All would be watching the finish of the still maidens LEONARDO and SYSTEMATIC who have shown out at some point or other in their earlier runs. CRUISING may go the distance though 1400 is more ideal, the last few runs have been good.. If GREY MAGIC performs today it would be agony for a lot who wasted useful money on her before.
7. HILL OF GRACE has changed stables and needs to be watched in this run. INDIA SHINING is a game handicapper who is retaining form. THE SPARTAN has come on a lot after the last run. AFFIRMED CROWN is working well, should run a good race at better odds. CARABINNERI has slid down the scales.
THE SPARTAN-INDIA SHINING-AFFIRMED CROWN
8. SIX SHOOTER could not match up against the speedy FOREST FLAIR in last run, has good speed to win. NOX is working well to be a contester again. TALISKER is a fast type who is blazing in works. DESDEMONA ran a fair race and should be in contention . GRRENBRO’S last failure needs to be taken with a pinch of salt as it was too bad to be true.
9. FLAMING LAMBHORGINI is game horse for this distance. THE CONTENDER has lost too many chances to win. SOBERANO has beaten much better types, the jockey is firing well nowadays. PHOENIX REACH won a race due to the poor ride of the favorite.
