1. WINGED KING has been given an outing after solid preparation, has to be tried, rider is questionable. THE FIRST BULLET was pulled in first run here, horse runs after a break with an obscure rider.THUNDER has won earlier when at low weights, rider is not a forceful one. NOBLE PRINCESS has been shown gates. BELLA PINKY may be tried, is still a maiden. DELTA DELIGHT has poor form, last run was so so. INSPIRATOR has a good chance at low weights with an allowance rider now.
INSPIRATOR-WINGED KING-THE FIRST BULLET.
2. AMANDA is a failed favorite , has not been worked, may be tried in lowest class again. FORTALEZA belongs to most annoying connections, horse can win or run last if not tried, nobody dares to question, has potential. TRIPLE VICTORY is speedy, may place. DANUBE has been given a run, is showing fine tracks.
3. Hopefully stars will be in favorable position so that the owner will be sincere with his horses, he is always consulting his priest for auspicious days to bet, except for the black type big races where this belief of his is forgotten, FOREST TERN won well despite veering out under pressure, has been prepared. SPEED HAWK went all the way untroubled and will run well again. HECTOR beat a weaker field and may struggle now. Others have no worthwhile credentials.
FOREST TERN-SPEED HAWK-HECTOR.
4. NOVEL APPROACH has been given a run and is in pink condition from tracks. SMOOTH GLIDER is on demotion, may surprise if backed. THE MUSE is speedy one, will run well. SIMPLETON led in and flopped like a pricked baloon last time. HACKETT who lost by a whisker, has been well tracked and prepared, goes at low weights.
5. CASH IS KING runs for 76th and may be final time and will be ridden out.KOHINOOR GLAMOUR has been impressive in tracks, is being waited with. SUNDAY CRUZ can win if given a try ride, last effort was good, trainer is unreliable. SUPER SURPRISE has looked fit in works, may run better now.ICE PICK WILLIE is a sparingly raced who won well and looks scopy.
SUNDAY CRUZ-CASH IS KING-ICE PICK WILLIE.
6. RIDGEWAY has raced with better ones, can run well. H N Mehta the previous owner of RELIC HUNTER must be ruing his decision to sell the horse who is reeling off exciting wins he re, has scope even now. WINSTON was late to finish, has a good chance to redeem. IM DIFFERENT has been nicely tracked and has low weights.
IM DIFFERENT-WINSTON-RELIC HUNTER.

8. ABSOLUTE BRAVE has picked up form, can go for hat trick but rider is weak. COOL APPROACH should run a forward race , has form. AUMENTO is working well. GALAXY QUEEN was a good winner, should be doing well again. Age has troubled SHAKA ZULU who has not been able to hold his handicap, has the rider for another try. .AMISTAD was bet upon confidently but flopped, looks jaded. NOBLE REWARD has low weights on promotion, may be tried.
SHAKA ZULU-GALAXY QUEEN-NOBLE REWARD.
