1. ALWAYS has not yet been tried, the tracks are good and the rider may pull it off. SAILING THRU has been on board and will try to place again under the same rider. CLASSIC SPIRIT has been prepared for this race, the only winner here has a decent chance to go all the way. CLOUD COVER may run a forward race if backed.
CLASSIC SPIRIT-CLOUD COVER-ALWAYS
2. MYSTERIOUS HEIGHTS has come down a lot, the tracks are good and the allowance jockey stands a good chance here. SECRET TALK is at an ideal handicap to have a go. GRACES has failed to deliver as a favorite under good jockeys. DUTCH ART can surprise. DANGEROUS BELLE is looking dangerous at the low weights.
MYSTERIOUS HEIGHTS-DANGEROUS BELLE-SECRET TALK
3. KAPATHOS is tracking well. TATTEN HOE has a try jockey. HIGHLAND MUSIC has done well in last run with change of trainer/owner, can show out. SUPER KING is looking good in tracks. CHEROOKEE did not run as anticipated when favorite, can upset.
4. HIGHLAND BOUNTY had won very easily with this rider, may do so again. SWEPT AWAY is not here as per my handicap. SEA TREASURE is the “doosra” from the same owner who had struggled to win in a close finish from another owner owned horse, It looks likely to repeat again. KISS AWAY was a good 2nd who is speedy to trouble the lot . INSITE SOUL may be tried at this handicap. WILD TORRANNADO can upset.
HIGHLAND BOUNTY-KISS AWAY-SEA TREASURE
5. TUDOR REGENT has run some forward races. DEAR LIZA is sister to PHOSPHOR, the tracks are OK. FOREVER YOUNG is sister to YOUNG OFFENDER , she is looking fast in trials. HEREAFTER was medically unfit when loosing as a hot favorite, should be winning with all the good tracks. MONK’S FERRARI is working fast.
HEREAFTER-FOREVER YOUNG-TUDOR REGENT
6. GOLDEN KNIGHT is brother to ALL MY COLOURS and bred to stay. LONE MONARCH is a well bred got abroad who ran very well in last attempt, the tracks are suggestive. CRITICAL ACCLAIM may run well. SO COMO NO is looking good in trials, the last run was suggestive.
LONE MONARCH-SI COMO NO-GOLDEN KINGHT
7. ARTS was impressive in winning a sprint, the champion rider from North has to find something extra over this trip. SEA RULER has been given a mock race, the distance win gives him a good chance. AMORE MIO has run close to good types. ASTRAL won well and should be the one all have to watch out for. MESSALINA is sister to PALAZIO’S SON and should be trying to find her depth in this tough company.
AMORE MIO-SEA RULER- ASTRAL
8. CHIOS has a chance based on last season performance. ROMANTIC IMPACT has to sort out the penalty, may run well. WAHY is a good type who had won very easily in last run. SEA PRINCESS has run with better types, the last run may see her emulating her younger brother who won in style yesterday. VERSAKI is the highest rated juvenile in the country, he has been prepared for the day and all have to match up.
9. BLUE DAFFODILS is being waited with. BOONY LIGHT needs extra yards to perform. STUD OF GOLD may have been given loosing rides, the handicap is very good. EXCITING STORY had won well in last race, has the same jockey in a poor set up.
