WISHING A VERY HAPPY AND FRUITFUL YEAR TO ALL MY FRIENDS
1. CRISTO BOSS is from a small time trainer who was well beaten as favorite in last run, has been tracked. ROYAL MEWS is a weak bred who has a strong rider. TOP WIZARD was late to finish as favorite 3 days ago, has an allowance rider for another try. SILVER EDGE is a well bred who has been scrubbed in tracks, has never been tried so far, may place under the rookie.
2. DIWALI LIGHTS won impressively without any evident preparation, has an allowance rider to exploit form. AEOLUS MAXIMUS came up to challenge the winner strongly, has a fine handicap now. RELENTLESS PURSUIT is a got abroad who has been kept in shape in Pune and is now looking fit to fight out, races after very long. SIMONA from the good sire had led in and veered out, has a slightly better rider now. ASAHI is the oldie who fought it out in the straight to loose to younger one, has a chance to place again.
3. Something was not right in last run of COMMODORE as he lost after shaping like a winner against a horse whom he had beaten easily earlier. Now he is pitched against a rising well bred stayer in ARLENE who trashed the field long way from home. Both belong to same stables hence nothing looks very good here.The trainer has played the doosra card often earlier. JACK FROST at top weight comes next best.
4. SAW GRASS has been tracked and is now running in lower class. SENSEX faces penalty for last win.FRINGE BENFIT is always tried under rookies, has a good handicap chance. DANCING LORD led in and flopped over the mile, rider repeats. GOD SENT ran a weak race, has a rider switch.
DANCING LORD(4)/ SAW GRASS (1)-PLACE
5. BROTHERS OF THE WIND ran a much improved race, will be in reckoning here. SIGNOR is bred for speed, has been tracking for long, has taken much time to come to hand. SPIRIDON has shaped up late like his elder brother ON TIME, last run was eye catching. WILD JACK is unreliable, veers out after bend. FIRENZE has pleased in tracks, had led in well in last run. SWEET TEMPTATION is a well bred who has raced against good types, has pleased a lot in tracks, ran a good mock here.
SPIRIDON(6)/BROTHERS OF THE WIND(1)-PLACE
6. AN JOLIE is a fine type who had been held back last time, may compete. ANCIENT GLORY lost on camera in last run, has a top rider now.FLAMBOYANT FLAME was pulled in his Pune runs, stunned the field last time with a going away win, has extra furlong now. MOTHERLAND has a similar history, was beaten by BIDSTONE HILLS by 8 lengths when running as favorite, last run at good odds made a fool of the bookies, has a weak rider today.FRANZ FERDINAND is looking improved in tracks.
FLAMBOYANT FLAME(4)/AN JOLIE(1)-PLACE.
7. PADMA KOSA is winner of 2 but aged. FASHIONABLE GAIT was in betting last time but disappointed her supporters. PURE SIN comes into reckoning for the last run and rider, should be favored to win in this hopeless looking bunch. BLACK JAGUAR is being scrubbed for response in tracks. COUNTRYS EMPRESS is a front runner with a weak rookie. RICH N RARE had run 2nd to HOPE SPRINGS at pune, can surprise.
PURE SIN (5)-WIN
RICH N RARE(13)/FASHIONABLE GAIT(4)-PLACE
