1. ENDURANCE is working well, may place. PRINCESS COUP was a forward runner in last attempt, has a positive jockey switch. METHODICAL had run encouraging races in winters, the first run of the season should be ignored, the half sister to STILLWILL is ready to strike. LOVE ME TENDER belongs to a trainer who must be wondering what has gone wrong this season, he has only won with one favorite; ie, BECKET at miserly odds, six other favorites of this trainer have bitten the dust. The filly is owned by an old hand owner from Western India and will be fancied strongly based on some encouraging tracks.

2. CROWN VISION was done in by the poor riding of Srinath at the beginning of the season, the well bred has been decently worked and looks good here. SPARKLING CAT has been given a run. CHAMPS ELYSEES has a weak rider. TRILLION WIN has shown lot of speed in trials, the last poor run is a dampener. AMAZING QUEEN is a well bred who has niggles of fitness, may run well with the good jockey.

3. ADONIS has no tracks to show after the last run, can not be fancied to win. ONE FOR THE MONEY has been impressive in both runs and should be fighting out. SKYGLIDER has been one paced in both outings. NEVER SAY GOOD BYE is very well bred, may need this run and a bit of distance to show out. NESSIE is tracking well. LA CLIQUE had lost as a favorite, now looks improved in tracks.

4. SUNRAY is tracking well, the trip suits. BLACKSUPERSTAR was in betting order but ran pathetically in last attempt. ROYAL PRODIGY has been tracked fine by this good rider, may outride the weak lot. GOLDEN DIXIE was a fighting 3rd, the trainer is unreliable if public fancies his wards. SPARK OF GALAXY has done nothing worthwhile so far, the last track was good.

5. BRUNETTA has tracked well, last run was easy, positive rider switch is noticeable. APPOLONAIRE has been given a couple of educational runs. MERCUTIO has a strong rider, but will he be on the job? In winters this horse had beaten CAPTAIN’S LOVER who now goes at a better handicap. The placement of the rider on CAPTAIN’S LOVER is very indicative as this rider has been winning mostly for Dominic trained horses for number of years. MYSTERE retains form.
6. ABOLINE is the local champion horse of last year, he beat them all including the wonder filly JAQUELINE last year, the worry is the weights he is conceding now. SPRINT STAR is a pure miler. PALAZZIO’S SON appears to be going over a longer trip than what he likes. CELESTIAL WAY was a surprise winner who is tracking very well. D’ARTAGNAN is a game sprinter, was being fancied last time. ASTRAL FLASH has been busy working every morning, looks at a good handicap to turn the tables on ABOLINE who beat him by 6 lengths at level weights last year.
7. KOHINOOR WISH is conceding weight now. COULEUR ROUGE is a pure sprinter. STRING ALONG won both the starts all the way, meets quality runners now. CIEL INDIENNE is a front runner, appears one paced, ran well in CTS. BRAAVO is working well, last run was good. SUN DANCING is well prepared, had impressed in her win in winters, looks as a good type.

8. RUGGED BEAUTY has an allowance jockey, she is working well. GLITERRATO has tracked well and the last run was easy. KRIPA is at a good handicap to upset if the secretive trainer backs him. SWEET SURRENDER is working very well, the rider is average. SPARK OF BRONTE can be in thick of things in the competitive field.
9. SOVIET MELODY is in good form. ITS MY PARTY has an outside chance. SKY RIDER has not been able to reproduce the winter good runs. SMARTWAYS has been well tracked, can go all the way. LEGEND REBORN was denied a win by the poorly executed gamble in last run.
