1. BRINDABAN and MYKONOS had last run over a 1200 m race when the later had finished on to nab the former at level weights with the same riders, now the advantage may be with the speedy B ‘BAN over the short trip but then Sandesh is at a high crest nowadays. The old legs of CELSIUS will make it interesting as he has low weights. RAJSAMMAN has run with a slightly inferior lot.
2. SHINNING PATH was a good 2nd to ZIDAAN who surprisingly ran well again in a tougher group. HOLY BULL has handicap in favor, had lost on the post in Mumbai but may be out for an airing only as the trainer is notorious in fooling with runs, as it is the horse was comprehensively beaten by the oldie ACHIEVE in Mumbai. CACTUS CASH has been given a run , has low weights to go all the way now. ROMEO ran a fighting race but steps up in class.
CACTUS CASH-SHINNING PATH.
3. The distance to be run is the issue here, the top placed runners are stayers who can also carry weight. The one who caught the eye with a fighting run was ZORAAVAR but then he is going over a far longer trip than what suits his bloodlines. MOUNTBATTEN is the one who can run well for the stakes here.
4. ALFREDO has decent bloodlines, has been worked. SATELLITE is full sister to SET ALIGHT and may break the jinx for the trainer who suffers from over confidence. SIMPLY DIVINE was a fighting looser to LOCARNO In Mumbai, was beaten by a superior SPADES here.
5. SPADES was a very impressive winner who is maintaining form. YOUR ROYAL MAJESTY has run in graded races where he could not match up with better ones, has a fighting chance now with the allowance. LEGEND OF THE SEAS is tracking nicely and has speed to run a forward race.TAP DANCE was beaten close home by SONG OF AFRICA who won again, has a chance with the rider in finest form. VICTORIAN has low weights and tracking fine.
YOUR ROYAL MAJESTY-SPADES-VICTORIAN.
6. CONSTANTINE from the good international sire had fought out and lost in Mumbai to a speedy RULEDOWNUNDER, will look to redeem now. QUICK ANGEL has run well in most outings and may place here. SHANIA may benefit from change of name, has always run fighting races in Mumbai and has been sharpened up well. SHIVALIK VIEW is a top bred who should run well in maiden outing.
7. ARRETE who won a sensational race in Bangalore by winning by a pike is tracking well here, may get the added distance also. JACK FROST was another runaway winner who is impressive in preparation. SOLOMON is catching the eye with good tracks, had beaten a good one in QUASAR earlier. WAR COMMAND has been showing out in mornings, was a fighting racer in PMMillion , the most prestigious and prolific paying race of the country for the juveniles. POLYDENCES is from a speedy sire and has been showing out in preparation.
8. SANSANI has been given a run and note the rider switch. PHELPS is looking good in tracks, trip is ideal. SUNTAN BEAUTY runs well in first outings, has been worked fit. RASHUN should be trying to place .
9. BEYOND INTENSITY is from a speedy mare and is in fine nick. MUNTASIR is an in and out runner who may fight out .MT TIANMEN has been tracked well, last run was good. To the moon may run keen under the rookie, had flopped as a favorite in mumbai.
BEYOND INTENSITY-MUNTASIR-MT TIANMEN.
