1. AGAIN GALLOP looks a good thing based on previous performance and the fast tracks, the meager rates will be a dampener. MYTHOS is working well and the half brother to OBAN should run well. RECHARGED has been scrubbed in works, should be looking to place. ALLEZ VITTE is a costly got abroad who has RIVERMAN (one of the tops) as the broodmare sire, the colt looks soft in tracks, can surprise with the good jockey.
2. SON OF THE SOIL is going over an uncomfortable distance for the breed at top weight, has the jockey to pull it off. YAMAS has impressed in preparation in winters, the full brother to POWER GRID may warm up to a fight. THE GORDIAN KNOT is in with an outside chance. GUN POWDER has been showing zest in morning work outs.
YAMAS-SON OF THE SOIL
3. MY MUSKETEER and KICKING KING had finished on from the rear bunch to get on board in one of the most well contested race of the season, both were at good odds and will be fancied based on that run. YES I CAN is the winner of a race who has a better jockey now. ZAMALEK has been running in patches, may upset.

4. SHOTGUNN has been showing out in tracks, the last win was very stylish, the handicap is stiff. SIX SHOOTER has been a disappointment, may run well. TANZANITE has the scales in favor now, the rookie jockey has to ride well for a positive result. GREENBRO has run well in sprints, the jockey is good.
5. HIGHLAND CROWN is best at handicap but no tracks after shifting here and running first time on the sloppy track are a disadvantage. TIMELESS TREASURE was a bit late when going down to SPARK OF GOLD as a favorite, the added penalty and the extra distance are both worrisome for this son of Razeen. SPEARHEAD will be fancied based on his going away win last time, may be burdened by the extra trip as also the negative handicap.. GLORIOSA was slow out and ran poorly in last run, the distance suits.
6. CAPRIOSKA has been well prepared, needs a bit more in distance. FLAMING LAMBHORGINI has been judiciously worked, has won at a higher handicap before. STILL WILL is a game sprinter, may throw a scare to the fancied runners. ALPHA BABY was very impressive last season in winning thrice, has a chance to carry on with the good work. DREAM PARK is a speedy one who will lead the way.

The feminine named colt AILSA had worked very pleasingly last winter and is maintaining form. FAME AND GLORY is brother to decent types ROYAL AMBER and RUFFIANO, the tracks are very encouraging. DUCHESS OF YORK has a very ordinary jockey, the breeding draws attention. SPARK OF GALAXY has been given an easy run, has speed to surprise.
AILSA-SPARK OF GALAXY-FAME AND GLORY
7. TIME FLIES belongs to an old hand owner , the horse has been given illusive runs in winters, watch money flow. ON A ROLL was being quietly fancied after a very long time last week when rains terminated the proceedings, the horse is due to9 deliver at lucrative odds only. PINNAKINI was a steady favorite in the canceled race, now has more serious contenders in the fray and the small time trainer may sleep out today. LITTLE SPLENDOUR has been given an easy run, will run a forward race now.
