1. GREEN SIGNAL has a good rider indicating the seriousness of the connections. The horse had run 3rd to ANGELO over this distance at Pune and is working well. VENCE has a weak rider after the useful last outing. PREMIER CONNECTION was withdrawn last time when it had opened as a favorite, the horse is well bred for this trip. NYMPH had failed as an on money favorite with this rider, now goes over extra distance.

FOREVER YOUNG-SEMPER EEDEM
6. MACCHIPICCHU had run second to STAR WARRIOR at Pune and the fact that the victor is one of the top juveniles in the country suggests that M’PICCHU will be hard to toss.

MACCHIPICCHU-STAR VISION-SUN GLORY

1. ON MY WAY is a failed favorite over this distance but belongs to a very mediocre trainer. PREMIER CONNECTION has come to hand, is well bred and has a mature jockey. STARLITE EXPRESS is bred to stay.
PREMIER CONNECTION-ON MY WAY
2. SINE QUO NON won very well and looks like a repeat candidate, the fear is that he is conceding weight. ASHRIDGE is a well bred who belongs to a very average trainer, the breeding commands respect. EYE OF THE STORM failed as a favorite in lower class.
SINE QUO NON-ASHRIDGE
3. ECSTATICA has a chance to upsetbased on a good 3rd to ANGELO. DIO MIO is running after long, the tracks are fine. BRUCKNER won warding off, looks tough for repeat. SUPREME EMPEROR was outclassed by ONASSIS.
4. STAR CRUSADER likes this trip. THE GIANT is a big horse who runs a fighting race. THANDA comes into reckoning based on the last run and the fact that she has won this distance carrying top weight before.
5. BATISTA was slow to take off, may not run to win over this scurry. STAR GLORY is very well bred and is tracking notably. TITLEIST ran a forward race last time. ANGEL'S PURSUIT should benefit from the rider switch. HEARTS ON FIRE is well bred and is tracking fine. SUN ELEGANCE is being niggled in works, may run well.
ANGEL'S PURSUIT-STAR GLORY-BATISTA
6. OASIS STAR towers above the rest. SPITZ has been the most impressive four year old sprinter so far. RED ROMEO and PEPE JUNIOR have run on board behind the STAR previously and would be hoping to earn money.
OASIS STAR-SPITZ-RED ROMEO
7. ASTRAL FLASH is looking very forward and should run well. CELESTIAL WAY has improved with each run, the trip is tough in this company. CHANGE OF LUCK was given a poor ride, still has a chance here. JACQUELINE has done nothing wrong in the lead up and should win.
JACQUELINE-ASTRAL FLASH-CHANGE OF LUCK
8. schnell is a speedy horse who has tracked well.MONOPOLY loves this distance and has a mature jockey. EKHABINSKYA has to deal with the penality, has a canny rider. IL DIVO races well at low weights, has a chance to redeem last loss.
9. MAVERICK was apparently pulled last time by a rookie jockey and is now being ridden by another dubious old rider, may do well. ADDICTION has been given runs and should be considered in this very poor field. THE REBEL has come down in scales.ETERNAL FLIGHT should benefit from the lung opener.

1. CHANCELLOR had won well as a maiden and subsequently he was a close 3rd to ATTILA , can be fancied even at top weight. DEEP PURLE is tracking well, has been raced very sparingly. FLOODS OF FORTUNE being a half brother to PHENOMENALE has taken lots of time to come to hand, may put up a fight. PERGRINE FALCON is speedy, has weights which provide a chance.
CHANCELLOR-PERGRINE FALCON-FLOODS OF FORTUNE
2. FORWARD CHARGE was shaping as a winner when beaten by a superior STAR ALLIANCE. RAPHAEL is full sister to TSESEBE and is tracking very well. RIVER DRAGON runs with a good jockey for first time. TRACK THUNDER comes into reckoning based on 3rd to PURE ELATION at Pune.

3. POLARISER is on demotion, will hit the front and try to stay on. ALGO MAS has come down in handicap. KA CHING may be ON in this poor field. WALKING TALL has been knocking for a win, the last run was suggestive.

BORN DESTINY-FREE SPIRIT-MONARCHOS

1. STATESMAN is by a freshman sire, the gate practice was forward and the colt may run well with the second string jockey. MAKE MY DAY has shown lots of eagerness as is with most horses of this trainer in morning tracks, should be in the reckoning. APRILLIA appears to be the most forward one and being by the best sire nowadays she should be the top contender . The elders COLONEL DUFF & LADY DUFF are good sprinters. JUNO is very forward in tracks and this full brother to DOLCE VINO who won well yesterday has a good chance to upset.
APRILLIA-JUNO-MAKE MY DAY
2. GORDIAN KNOT has the benefit of a run and rider switch. SADDLE QUEEN has taken time to train and cannot be backed irrespective of the rider. MIND ME is unreliable, may run well. SPREAD A SMILE has a fair chance being an aged horse.
GORDIAN KNOT-SADDLE QUEEN-SPREAD A SMILE
3. AMAR PREM has tracked well. The trainer and jockey combination struck yesterday and now we have SHE’S A LADY who has a decent chance. BLACK BEAUTY may run a forward race. GRAND TOPAZ needs this run.
SHE’S A LADY-BLACK BEAUTY-AMAR PREM
4. CART WHEEL ran a forward race before going down. MARCEGALIA hits the front and goes away and hence can do it again with the full allowance jockey. SUGAR RAY is the best on handicap with a good jockey. LOGAN’S RUN has come down by many points, may be tried now. ALCMENE has to show some form to win.
SUGAR RAY-CART WHEEL-LOGAN’S RUN
5. SUNNYLAND appears to be getting into some form. CLOLOUR OF JOY should build upon the last run after some good tracks. HIGH GLEAM doesn’t appeal on basis of very ordinary work by second string jockeys. CORLEONE has worked well, has not run for long. GIVE ME THE MONEY may place.
COLOUR OF JOY-CORLEONE-SUNNYLAND.
6. DIAMOND HUNTER ran a good 3rd to PALAZZIO’S SON and the latest track was awesome, the rider is in dumps. ORIGINALITY flopped at Hyderabad, may improve. SALSERA is looking fresh in tracks, the jockey can deliver.
7. DANTE’S PEAK was finishing on strongly and with the added distance has the chance to win. ARABIAN MEMORIES is speedy one and may get on board. PAINT ME RED has to shed some weight before winning again. REFRESH belongs to a low rated trainer, the horse had won at these weights with this rider before. MOVIE QUEEN has been backward thru the Mysore season, may surprise.
REFRESH -DANTE’S PEAK- ARABIAN MEMORIES
8. RIVER ISLAND can deliver if he doesn’t choke. NEED OF THE HOUR was a noticeable finisher. SO MUCH MORE is a good type, may resume winning ways. DISTINCTLY AHEAD is unreliable. ASTOUNDING BLUE is being readied for a win.

EYE OF THE STORM-ORIENTAL MAGIC-ARISTOCRATICAL
2. OCEAN WISH has been well prepared at Pune, looks fit. SERENITY is a well bred , although the dam has disappointed in breeding so far and the jockey has yet to justify his capabilities , the horse is tracking well enough to fight out. SUNLIGHT appears to be the most forward horse here, the dam was the winner of Indian Oaks. VIVA LA VIDA is a speedy one who has a good jockey, the last track looked like a red herring to me where she ran ahead by lengths.
SUNLIGHT-VIVA LA VIDA
3. IL DIVO had given hint of a win during Pune season, has been well tracked. MAJOR ROBERTS ran a good forward race last week, can trouble the field if ridden with confidence. ARES is a speedy type with a chance to get on board. ROYAL CROWN is tracking well, has the low weights.

6. APPALINA had won well and may improve further as she is well bred. EAGLE MOUNTAIN was catching up with leaders in last run. EMPRESS OF INDIA is maintaining winning form after a surprise win. CHANAKYA has got the distance to worry about, he is tracking well. SHODAAN should like this trip, the last run was suggestive.

SHODAAN-APPALINA-EMPRESS OF INDIA
7. BASKERVILLE has run with better types, has tracked well in Pune. BLACK FALCON impressed in gates. ILLUMINATE is pleasing in works and looks good on handicap. IL TABARRO ran green last time, should improve. JALSA showed out in a mock race.
