1. POMME DE TERRE has the good jockey and can carry the top weight in a sprint. NONIOS has no tracks, belongs to a very average trainer. THE FIRST LADY has nothing more to loose. MORALITY may run a forward race at low weights.
MORALITY-POMME DE TERRE-NONIOS
2. RED CHILLI has raced with better horses, can sting the favorite if ridden well. FIAMMA should benefit from the last run and jockey switch. CASUAL LOOK is at a tidy handicap. MONARCHOS folded up after looking good in the straight.
3. GLORIUOS MISS ran well enough and has tracked well. GERRARD is working well. HAMMERHEAD has failed to deliver after some promising runs. HICKORY has worked well, the jockey has a chance here. ARES surprised the favorite with a blistering finish, may improve further. BLUE DANUBE was a good fighting winner in a million race. ROYAL CROWN has a good chance to place as he has been sparingly raced.
BLUE DANUBE-ROYAL CROWN
4. HICKORY-GLORIOUS MISSIMPERIO is a fine stayer who has come up in handicap, looks fit. STAR ALLIANCE won with a terrific burst and being from the top sire will get the trip. COFISERIE ran well enough in Pune Derby.
5. BARBARA has the advantage of distance, may make a match of the race. ARISTOCRATICAL is definitely improved after back to back double. DELTA PORT is bred to stay. SATSUMA STAR is full brother to black type CLASSIC SKY, the horse has been well trained.
6. SAFARI is a failed favorite, the distance suits. AQUILO can spring a surprise. CAIRNDHU ran a very good race against good horses last week, may win now. EQUIDAE should love this trip. ROMANTIC IMPACT has always fought out at low weights.
7. ASTON MARTIN is a failed favorite who gets the best of the foreign jockeys. BLUEBIRD has come to hand, may surprise. RAJASTHAN ROYALS is showing lots of speed I n tracks.STRAUSS had run well in last season. IL TABBARO shaped like a winner before going down close home. ROYAL PORTHCAWL has impressed in her last two runs.
IL TABBARO-ASTON MARTIN-ROYAL PORTHCAWL
8. SEA RULER and VERSAKI are the two unbeaten ones who belong to the same trainer, one belongs to an old hand at owning horses and the other one to the new owner who is winning at will. Both horses have their reasons to win. Both are looking extremely good. JACQUELINE has won every ones heart with good wins including last week’s fighting guineas win, this race is perhaps too soon. CABRIOLET has won in record time after a fighting loss in Pune Derby, has a chance.
9. BEAUTIFUL STRANGER is full brother to DANCING DYNAMITE and has tracked well. MOON STAR has been very well prepared for continuing the owner’s domination in maiden’s races. TENDER ROMANCE has tracked well and should fight out with the rider flying in from Kolkata. SERENITY shaped well in the straight before bowing out.
MOON STAR-BEAUTIFUL STRANGER-T ROMANCE
10. TRIUNFO has improved in last few runs. RIVER KNIGHT is the full brother to the celebrated SET ALIGHT, he had won very well and has trained on well. OH CALCUTTA won in taking style, may find the trip hard to handle. SNOW QUEEN is bred to stay.
RIVER KNIGHT-OH CALCUTTA-SNOW QUEEN
11. WILD TORRANADO is ridden by the aging jockey and belongs to a very mediocre trainer who rarely wins nowadays. CLOUD COVER gave indication to strike a couple of runs back, has the good jockey now. ADAM’S LAW is in fine form to fight out. FASCINATION may run well here.
CLOUD COVER-ADAM’S LAW-WILD TORRANADO
