1. BLAU HIMMEL is maintaining form, looks at a tough handicap. SADDLER’S RULE has often been fancied but appears to be one paced. CULCREIFF is a sparingly raced horse who has been prepared. GOLDEN GRACE has a weak field to tackle, may be ON. FASCINATION has a work jockey over an extended trip.
GOLDEN GRACE-SADDLER’S RULE-CULCREIFF
2. DEEP PURPLE looks much better than LIVING THE DREAMS when seen in light of race 209 in Mumbai, but the way the latter won this season, a reverse may be on. FIRE VAULT is a game stayer.
LIVING THE DREAM-DEEP PURPLE
3. EL TROPICO veered out under pressure when leading for home in ARTS first win. FOREVER YOUNG was an eye catching 2 nd at top weight in VIOLETTA’S race. AGHA continues to be hopeful even at this age.
FOREVER YOUNG-EL TROPICO
4. ADAM’S PRINCE may grace the board as he appears to be a stayer, the sire has yet to get a winner. TINTORETTO has lots to make up. ZILLIONAIRE was a good 3rd, the brother to RED DRAGON should tackle the trip well. CONSTANTINA comes on top based on last run.
5. SURAJ had last won under this jockey at these weights and the same distance. GOLDEM KINGDOM may run well as the rider and trainer got a winner yesterday. TYUMEN may run a forward race. FIERY FORTUNE has been brought down. SUAVEMENTE is a waited with runner and appeals a lot at this handicap.
6. LIONWOODS has always been on board, has a good chance. MONEY BAGS is once again a hopeful for place. OCEAN ODDYSSEY is brother to FOREVER YOUNG, may not be ON. Has a weak rider. PALAZZO GRIOZOLI can improve on last run. STARRER is a failed favorite, has been given mocks. CEST LA VIE was a notable runner last time. CRYSTAL is brother to good type SEA STAR and has been well prepared, the mocks was impressive. OCEAN PRINCESS needs more ground to be effective.
7. STAR WARRIOR is an unbeaten one, appears to one good one from Razeen this year. SPECTACULAR QUEST showed improvement in last fine win, has been tracking well. BEAUTIFUL STRANGER was the winner of the most prestigious race for youngsters, got beaten thereafter, has shown out in works. ILLUSTRIOUS has scales in favor. SCIONIC is very noticeable in tracks after the last fine win.
STAR WARRIOR-BEAUTIFUL STRANGER-SPECTACULAR QUEST
8. GREY PHANTOM has a very weak field to tackle, the choice of rider is baffling. DREAM TALK has not lived up to the expectations, may run well. TINTISIA has looked improved after the couple of gates. ANTIA has five runners, which one will bring him money, even he may not know.
GREY PHANTOM-DREAM TALK-TINTISIA
9. ENCHANTED has been well tracked, may run well. MANITOU SPLENDOUR ran one hell of a race as an outsider, looks good now. PERPETUATION has worked well, may be ON. WINGS OF ANGELS won well in first outing last year, may be tempting for the connections to try once again.
