1. LAMPARD is a well bred who has an allowance jockey, the trainer is known for not tracking his horses openly. IBIS is a strong contender here, has run much above BLUSH in Mumbai. BLUSH won all the way at good odds, difficult for repeat. BENEDICTUS was given a soft run last week, should improve in effort.
2. TARA is a stayer who has a work jockey to guide her. BLACK PHANTOM has won a 2400m race before. GREEN SIGNAL is going over a longish trip, can not be fancied. LUSTY placed first time in career under this rider in last run, should be interested today to do one better at low weights.
3. WEIZHOU had won two good races here last year, the trip is ideal. CLARION CALL has been failure whenever backed , can not get a better chance to win than today as the handicap is too good.
4. SILVER SANDS is a sprinter of repute, the weights are tough. NEFYN was being touted as a very good thing by people involved when he failed as a favorite, should be a good thing in this set up. SMOKIN ACES is a fine sprinter, the rookie jockey has to do something special to win. ROYAL GESTURE has an allowance jockey who is balancing himself well nowadays, should be fighting out. ASTON MARTIN is a well bred horse who has come to hand late, may surprise.

5. ROYAL COMPANION has worked well, the jockey is good. THEIR LITTLE SISTER is a sprinter, can not be fancied here. LIVING THE DREAMS is a well bred with a jockey in form for the trainer who is firing regularly. SING ALONG is half brother to good type ENCELADEUS, the last run has brought her on.

6. CROWNED PRINCESS was an impressive winner, can fight out. DICTATOR has not run for long, was kept on tracks, the half brother to AUTONOMY looks keen in works. OCEAN POWER won in a weal set up, may place. SAFFRON has tracked well, the stable is to be watched after the good double of yesterday.
7. RIVER PRIDE has run against better types, her runs in Pune last year were forward. FULL THROTTLE has come down in scales. FLYING TACKLE can surprise. APPALINA is an ordinary bred filly, has not been able to make any impression, the rider has a task on hand.
