1. CABINDA has placed twice, it has a jockey who is riding with confidence nowadays. ABOVE ALL has not been tried this season, the last 4th is a pointer. SHAKTIMAN has good initial speed. GANADOR has come down a lot.
2. DIPLOMATIC LICENCE has come down a class. PREMIER DIVA is better bred ,won well & is maintaining form. URUJ has been given a mock race, appeals on weights.
3. RED MESA is at a handicap to upset. QUEENS COURT was a fighting 2nd, will be all out again. RISING EMPEROR was a comfortable winner & is working well. SPARTA has not run for long, may be a gamble horse today.
RISING EMPEROR-QUEEN’S COURT-SPARTA
4. DANCE MAESTRO is speedy. CATALYST is showing out in tracks, the jockey is poor. AMBEROGIO is in fine form. GYPSY QUEEN won over 1600m but has the breeding for speed , can win if bet upon by the gambling connections.
5. BLADE RUNNER was hotly bet upon, the horse was slow out, then ridden out in a hurry , lost due to suspicious ride. BLUE MOUNTAIN is brother to ECHOES OF LIGHT, the preparation is suggestive. INDIAN SUMMER may run well. SALVE REGINA ran well on debut, has been tracking well to be in contention.
BLADE RUNNER-SALVE REGINA
6. CARLOS is in fine form. CAIRNDHU is a good type sprinter who may do well with the poor rider on top. RED INDIAN is another good type who won with authority. SURAJ is an up setter.
7. KIARA is a fine sprinter who is likely to be leading the fight in the straight. AURORA AUREALIS was in no mood to give up the lead to SET ALIGHT in the JUVENILLE FILLIES 1600m. BEE QUICK was too good a winner in a smart time who is blazing the tracks.
8. MAGER WAGER has been well prepared after his last win, the choice of the rider who is close to the owner of No 2 horse is perplexing. RUBY ROCKET may be a gamble, doesn’t appeal on handicap. MASTER CRAFT was a notable 3rd over 1200m, if it goes well over the added distance it will win. HERE COMES THE DON can upset. HITZ is in great form.
MASTER CRAFT-RUBY ROCKET-HITZ
9. KING’S TROOP is in good nick. OPERA ROYALE may place. BINEE appeals on handicap. NORTHERN PRINCE will win if bet upon & breaks out well from the gates, worth a bet in this field.
NORTHERN PRINCE-BINEE-OPERA ROYALE
DAYS BEST====BLADE RUNNER
DOUBLE==GYPSY QUEEN & NORTHERN PRINCE
UPSETTER===HERE COMES THE DON
