FLEETING ARROW who had run a good 5th in Poonawalla Multimillion , later beat ARCHIPENKO coming from couple of lenghts behind later in winter season. Today the two good types would be galloping it out & it looks like ARCHIPENKO may avenge defeat this time.
PHOENIX REACH has the pedigree for this distance & is running under a good jockey. The preparation looks weak. ROYAL ARTIST was close 2nd over this trip but the connections are most illusive. GAMPU has impressed in one of the gate practices, the mock race indicates the seriousness for the race. ROYAL FILLY is at a low weight & looks well prepared.
