8. SKYRIDER was not on the job last time, one of my friend was crying hoarse pleading the bookies to let him eat it at all odds since the morning that day , no wonder it ran like a dud., can not see any improvement so soon. WALTZ AWAY is tracking well, has the fly in jockey for the Mumbai based owners. DON DIEGO is brother to good type THURSDAY NITE, the trainer is bad, is known for in out running of his wards very often.. SUN STORM is full brother to much earlier born and champion mare PALAZZIO, has been well prepared, the dilemma is which one of Wadhavan is going to be backed for win by them, I think this horse should do the job on debut under this outside the stable rider.
