1. SOCORORO has come down by heaps and is now at a suitable handicap to win over the favorite distance. PRIME TIME is a failed favorite from a betting stable, the tracks are good. GREY ISLAND was finishing on well in last run. BLUSH is a very well bred being trained by a controversial trainer. MOHABBI looked good in last work, the small time trainer has got his gambles working recently.
SOCORORO-GREY ISLAND-PRIME TIME
2. ANGELO has been tracking consistently well thru the season. OH CALCUTTA is going over the right trip, the tracks are good. SEA SPARROW is a gamble horse, got left in gates last time, all have to catch him now as he has been well tuned for the day. DEEP PURPLE is at low weights with a try jockey.
SEA SPARROW-OH CALCUTTA-DEEP PURPLE
3. ECSTATICA is in top form and can make a race of it even against 4 year olds. SEA STAR won in a close finish, has a difficult handicap now. HARMONICA should have benefited from the last run, has raced well against better types. ATTILA is at suitable weights.
4. DIAMOND HUNTER is a giant killer, has beaten hopefuls before. PALAZZIO”S SON ran 2nd to too good OASIS STAR in last sprinters cup, the trainer has erred in not preparing him for the important event. FOREST FLAIR has beaten all before and is best on paper. SEA RULER has a chance to upset as he has now the experience of a sprint. SPRINT STAR is the best performed over a mile in this company, the longish straight may be to his liking even in sprint and he may live up to his name.

5. BLUE MELLON is attractive in tracks. LIGHT MY WAY ran green as a favorite in last run, has improved and the trip should suit. LIONWOODS is bred to stay, was late to finish in last run. OCEAN YARRMAN is well bred and should improve over this trip. XISCA has run well in first run, was sacrificed in the next, has an outside chance for the leading trainer to score.
LIGHT MY WAY- XISCA-LIONWOODS
6. MASEEHA is the local hope, has won last time by sheer luck, has a poor lot to handle. OROCHI is a fine stayer who was 4th in last stayers cup. CONCEPTUAL has been very impressive winner at S India and is looking good in trials. CLASSERVILLE has age on side to stay.
7. LAKHADEMA has his task cut out, the handicap is tight and the field is large to force through. ALASKA ran suggestively last time. SILVER SOUL is working attractively after last place, will be in the fray. INSITE SOUL can upset, has come down a lot. YOUNG OFFENDER has not been ridden by a competent rider for a long time. MARINE ZONE caught the attention with a good run last time
8. OCEAN ODDYSEY is full brother to good type FOREVER YOUNG, is notable in tracks. STAR CRAFT showed lots of early speed in last run. TITLIEST has been just about there, may place. SERENITY has worked well, hasn’t run for a longish duration.
