1. GREEN SIGNAL has a good rider indicating the seriousness of the connections. The horse had run 3rd to ANGELO over this distance at Pune and is working well. VENCE has a weak rider after the useful last outing. PREMIER CONNECTION was withdrawn last time when it had opened as a favorite, the horse is well bred for this trip. NYMPH had failed as an on money favorite with this rider, now goes over extra distance.
GREEN SIGNAL-PREMIER CONNECTION-NYMPH
2. TSESEBE has beaten THE GIANT convincingly at Pune when conceding weight, the last few runs have been poor. THE GIANT has improved and is a good stayer. CHURCHILL had defied the penalty in wining in lower class, the trainer has been amazing with getting his horses to be so forward, the last mock race was very suggestive.
3. KITE RUNNER has a stiff handicap. GOLDEN MEMORY has been tracking notably and has the good jockey. BLACK FALCON has a fight on hand, this foreign jockey has failed to impress so far. PRINCE OF TROY fades out in the straight, may place based on last couple of runs.
GOLDEN MEMORY-BLACK FALCON-PRINCE OF TROY
4. FIRE STREAK and DE NADA had run close in the 1000 G , The latter looks well placed on scales and is well bred for the trip. Earlier she had run a good 2nd to PURE ELATION who won again. ONASSIS is at a very stiff handicap after the very stylish win, the horse looks good type and the tracks are tops. TYUMEN goes over ideal distance.
5. MAJOR ROBERTS has run a lot with the intention of drop in class and now goes with an allowance jockey. ESTEVEZ is a speedy one who was clearly given a loosing ride last time, the distance is a bother. SEMPER EEDEM and FOREVER YOUNG were too close to each other to say who is better now, the riding skills may sort it out.
FOREVER YOUNG-SEMPER EEDEM
6. MACCHIPICCHU had run second to STAR WARRIOR at Pune and the fact that the victor is one of the top juveniles in the country suggests that M’PICCHU will be hard to toss. STAR VISION was a decent runner in the last race at pune and has tracked well. SUN GLORY has yet to come to hand. REINSTATE may have benefited from the last run.
MACCHIPICCHU-STAR VISION-SUN GLORY
7. RIVER MEMORIES is maintaining form. FEONA was a decent 2nd to SLIKKIT at Pune in higher class, she is tracking well. BLACK RAINBOW has benefited from couple of mock races and is the one to be beaten. POUND FOOLISH has no tracks? May run well.
