1. MIGHTY PRINCE was heavily whipped while going down in a close finish, has been tracked thereafter and should be involved again. YAMAGUCHI has been a disappointment so far, may run on board in this very mediocre field. SUN CLASSIQUE is tracking impressively but since it bled after the last run he can not be considered for a win. NEARCO MASTER has come down a lot, it ran close to better types last year, the tracks are fine. WINGED LIGHT is improving, may run better than before.

2. ALVIANO is the son of the classic dam, the delay in initiation to races is hard to understand for this very costly purchase as he has been blazing the tracks. CRIMNAL LAWYER is impressive in works after the last run as 4th. DON VINO is by the speedy mare LA BELLA VITA who won sprints for this very trainer, the tracks are encouraging. RED RENEGADE is nicely bred to stay, the preparation has been excellent and the only worry may be the hype of first named. SHERMAN is by an ordinary sire, the tracks are attractive, may run well. STAR BRIGHT is very well bred granddaughter of STUNNING, has been prepared for the day, the last run was suggestive.

3. SIMPLY PHENOMENAL is well bred, he placed for first time in last run and now has a forceful jockey who has just returned from foreign sojourn. BOCCONCINO has been tracking well, the rider is mediocre. VALIANT BID drifted out in odds last time, looks good to score now. FANTABULOUS HERO is maintaining form.

4. DISTINCTLY AHEAD is a well bred who has been backwards all through winters, the gates and tracks are suggestive of a fine show irrespective of lack of a run. MARCEGALIA has a rider switch, the tracks are fine. NOBLE KINGDOM has no fighting qualities despite being a Razeen offspring. CAPRIOSKA has a chance to finally score over this shorter distance as she is bound to hit the front. SPARK OF CLASS is tracking well. HALL MARK has reached a striking mark, he may be the doosra from the son’s stables.
5. DIEGO RIVIERA is going over a shorter distance and against some speedy types, the handicap is reverse. DANCING DYNAMITE has been tracked for too long without runs, will find it difficult here. GREEN BAX loves the soft cut of the season. RHAPSIDON SNOW impressed in the mocks, should be the one all have to catch. ORIGINALITY is finally going over the ideal distance, the last run was educational only.

6. EXCELLENT ABILITY has been working well, can go all the way . SO MOCH MORE is speedy but the lack of a run in the season is a negative factor. FLAIR QUEEN is tracking well. LEON CAVALLO gave a suggestive display in last run, he is capable of winning now.

7. FOREST FLAIR is too good on handicap, the last win was awesome and the additional distance is not much of a worry. SHOTGUNN is tracking very well. NOX looks improved in tracks, the distance is ideal. CRUISING showed out for a split frame in the fillies trials, should run well. CELESTIAL WAY won handsomely and is showing plenty of action in trials, this got abroad looks like a speedy one.

8. MENLO PARK may be ON in this weak field. SPARK OF JEWEL reverts back to the ideal distance. YOUR BEAUTY has an allowance jockey for a retry for place. STEP IN STYLE has been a let down, goes over a scurry which is not suitable. NEEL GAGAN gets another chance to scoot and stay in money.
