1. MYPETHONEY has won at these weights in this class before, can sprint out . ROYAL HUNTER who is by a speedy mare was an improving 4th at the end of last season, has a chance if ridden well. SAILING THRU and ALHOMORA are from Lagad’s stables and will be trying to force the issue, the pair have a tough job to win as both have proved failures so far.
2. WESTERN CHELLENGE has taken down enough money in all its runs. The trainer has been tipping this horse to win whenever it ran and despite being a Razeen offspring it has always gone down at the end. However note the poor company here. THE GIANT was a runaway winner who is now running with a penalty, looks tough. LIGHTNING CAVALARY has no problems with the distance, the rider is weak. FOREVER AMBER is again a failure from Razeen, it got beat by that very ordinary horse ARGENTINA who could not win later at Delhi .
WESTERN CHALLENGE-FOREVER AMBER
3. SECRET ADMIRERR is a very speedily bred horse who has an edge at handicap, can win if intentions are serious. HERE COMES THE DON is being scrubbed for response in tracks, can run well. WILD TORRANADDO was in lead group in last week’s race, should find the board now. ARES is on a good handicap, the distance is a bit sharp.
SECRET ADMIRER-WILD TORRANNADO-HERE COMES THE DON
4. ADMIRAL’S QUEST who is full brother to MOON EMPEROR can complete the double for the connections as he is looking good in tracks. RAPHAEL has not tracked much, he is brother to TSESEBE and the dam was a black type. RIVER PRIDE is half brother to speedy ARISTOS, should be in action. SCHOLAR is impressive in tracks, brother IBERIAN was a good sprinter. CRITICAL ACCLAIM, full brother to FEAR OF TEARS is drubbing last week’s surprise winner RED DRAGON, in tracks, looks very good for place.
ADMIRAL’S QUEST-CRITICAL ACCLAIM- RIVER PRIDE
5. RIVER BLITZ was a comfortable winner in maiden’s race, has his task cut out here, the tracks are encouraging. FESTIVE LIGHT should come out of hibernation. DAFFODILS is a fine sprinter, no tracks at all. OH SO ROMANTIC is a costly purchase who has been an expensive failure, may run well at bottom weight.
OH SO ROMANTIC-RIVER BLITZ-FESTIVE LIGHT
6. STAR IMPACT is very attractive in trials, should run for money despite the top weight. BEAU MONDE is back in form. SPITZ has been very forward in all his runs, the handicap is bit stiff. AMBEROGGIO has been tracking well. FEET OF FLAMES has been rested last season, can resume winning ways on backing by the connections. GENERALISSIMO may run well at these weights.
FEET OF FLAMES-STAR IMPACT-SPITZ
7. WHITE HART LANE has been a failure so far, has been prepared. JOLTEON is looking keen in works. SHODDAN has been well prepared, the distance suits the pedigree. FOREST NATIVE is bound to be in the fray after last week’s effort. ARISTOCRATICAL is at low weights for a surprise if he is run up front.

DAYS BEST===WESTERN CHALLENGE
