1. SIMRA has potential to speed up , top weight is a bit of bother. BUZZ WORD has shown good tracks. EXTRA SPARK has not yet been tried, was travelling wide all the way in last run. BURDEN OF LADY who finished late has a useful rider today. BIG COPPER PENNY ran a fair race till the bend last time and was eased thereafter. FRUIT KING has come down a lot since winning 2 years ago, impressed in gates.
FRUIT KING- SIMRA-BIG COPPER PENNY.
2. FIRELIGHT should run a front race again and should place. POINT TAKEN looks to have lost form. ENTERTAINER has been given a mock, is down in scales. ICE CUTTER should repeat as a favourite at low odds, competition is poor.
3. JET SET GO who was front runner may do well in this suspect set up. CHEDDAR FACE has been pulled during summers, may win now. BYRONIC had finished late last time, should be running better today. GAGAN STAR was a good tip last time, not sure the trainer will try this time.
CHEDDAR FACE- BYRONIC-GAGAN STAR.
4. ALFONS DE BORJA ran a decent race in a terms handicap and will run well here. REGAL BOAST has handicap against. JACKIE OH was a notable runner up who has good terms now and has worked impressively. MANNAT was unlucky to loose last time, may run well over the mile.
JACKIE OH-MANNAT-ALFONS DE BORJA.
5. WIND TUNNEL has picked up a couple of races in Mysore so handicap is against at top weight. NOVEL APPROACH is a serious candidate for hat trick, had run away from others in last win and retains form. WREKIN is a forward runner with an allowance rider who may place. SAND STORM is down a lot since last winters and if given a fair ride has a good chance. ATLAS POWER is the oldie who can trouble them with a forward run, has won in higher class before.
NOVEL APPROACH-SAND STORM-WIND TUNNEL.
6. WILL STAR was nicely prepared and last run was a sham, can win. WIND WONDER was done in by rider’s over confidence against a speedy youngster, has picked up penalty. SAMAR SUN is pleasing in works. CIELO SIGNORE has a decent chance to upset, needs a good ride.
WILL STAR-CIELO SIGNORE-WIND WONDER.
7. ZULTANITE who had finished on with a blinding run has been penalised and may place in current form. CIRQUE DU SOLIEL was beaten at the post and has a good chance to redeem if the new foreign rider is capable in conditions here. TALISKER is showing lots of fast works. CATCH THE SUN could not sustain and was fairly beaten last time. INDIAN BOLT can surprise, is a good handicapper who is down with runs. JERSEY SHORE ran below par as a favourite, the rider does not infuse confidence.
CIRQUE DU SOLIEL-CHASE THE SUN-JERSEY SHORE.
8. CASH MY WAY is down in class and has been prepared and is bound to run into money now. CANNES is the speedy one who has a rider switch for the better. BLACKBIRD is tracking well. ACE SHINEON should improve upon the last late run.
CANNES-CASH MY WAY-BLACKBIRD.
9. Looks very tough for OPTIMUS ZONE to repeat . HARD TO PIN DOWN has not been able to perform and looks jaded. INSPIRATOR has impressed in gates, can finish on, had won at this mark in last win. SPARK OF HARMONY has an allowance rider and looks fit, may upset. ANGEL QUEEN has another good rider after a fair effort, low weights may help.
INSPIRATOR- HARD TO PIN DOWN-OPTIMUS ZONE.
DAYS BEST-----------ICE CUTTER
DOUBLE-------JACKIE OH X CIRQUE DU SOLIEL
