1. The need to reap in benefits when horse is in form is apparent in the case of KEMROCK. Too soon after the last two wins and the backbreaking weight are negatives. FIRE CRACKER is a speedy type who has been given an easy run, has the allowance jockey to deliver. SECRET AFFAIR had won his last start in Mumbai, has a handicap chance, the trainer is most unreliable, watch?
FIRE CRACKER-Both ways.
2. NONIOS is a similar case of trying to cash in form, the present trip is very sharp. LITTLE MASTER ran well enough to be in consideration again. BENEDICTUS with this rider is best left alone. QUAND MEME can run a forward race.
3. QUALITY ASSURANCE ran a poor race last time. RED CAT has tracked fast and ran well enough to be considered here. THE ROCK has spent last year in wilderness, can start winning again as he is definitely much better than these pretenders.
4. REAL SCOTCH is running on all race days and has some form to go by. CHARG AWAY has been well prepared and given a run. BEACH RAIN comes into reckoning on last run, doesn’t compare favorably with REAL SCOTCH though, has age on side.
5. YOUTHFUL REACTION had led well till the last 300 m in last run, this rider can take him all the way. ELEGANTIA ran well enough in last attempt to be in contention. Ignore the last run of GO WITH THE FLOW, has a good chance in this set up. IMAGINE is the best performed of the last season, has been denied tracks for fitness.
YOUTHFUL REACTION- Both ways.
6. JOVIAL was an easy winner, has a stiff penalty. YOU’RE THE TOUCH was an impressive finisher in last run, should do well now. LILY looks doubtful over this trip. MASTER BLASTER is tracking well, has the fly in jockey.
