1. JUST LIKE A WOMAN had won in class II last year, has been bought down with negative rides, looks a good bet to me under the top rider here, the mare is likely to proceed for stud duties thereafter. CLOUSEAU is still looking for a maiden win, the trip may suit. BAY OF THUNDER won with a better rider in poor company, has been tracking well. ZUETINA has run well off and on and the rider is decent.

2. ENYA is a good type who was a no hopeful in Derby, takes on a bunch of oldies now. SHY BEAUTY is a good handicapper, may run on board. SUBROOS is in the best form for his connections to consider more punts. VAGABOND has a top jockey at low weights.
3. KAJURAHO has the benefit of an easy run, the trainer is yet to score, the rider has a chance. TAANUSH has run with higher class horses in Mumbai/Pune. RABI KOUNGA goes over a bit more distance wise and that may be the undoing of this very fine sprinter, but still has an edge. QUALITY ASSURANCE has been the best in tracks but belongs to sly connections. TAKE A CHANCE is a good type who is working well.

4. ASHWA PUSHKAR is the best bred grand son of the very classy mare HALL OF HONOUR, the last win in clots trial stakes was very impressive. ASHWA PAARTH impressed in maiden win before loosing to the too good ROCK IT. HANSRAJ is catching the eye in tracks, has a speedy sire. SHOCKING STAR was run over a wrong distance when flopping as a favorite, the speedy type has a good jockey at light weight to trouble the favorite here.

5. TURKISH DOLL has yet to come to hand, the trainer is taking it easy so far. RAWSOM was an impressive winner who is very well bred and should repeat. MURBAN has come down a lot, has to get into form. CHARG AWAY may surprise as he is speedy.
6. HELLO DOLLY is a fringe horse at handicap. PROVENCE is returning after a set back, has run with better types, may need this run. BIG RED lost to ASMA who won again. SHAITAN is at a weight where he is real mischief for the favorite.
