1. After the fine hat trick of wins on three favorites, C Rajendra rides TIME FLIES who is looking good in tracks. The winning sequence is likely to continue for him as the opposition is not much to talk about. AETIUS is half brother to FLY BY WIRE and is likely to run a forward race. SWEET TIMER has a speedy sire but a poor jockey. BEST TIME has done nothing so far, has a chance to live upto the pedigree. SUNDAY BEST is by a very speedy mare.
TIME FLIES-AETIUS-BEST TIME
2. ISINBAYEVA has the credentials but the negatives are the distance, the load and a fattish jockey. NEW PASTURES has won two staying races in his career. GRACIAN is thereabouts in his runs. TRACK WONDER ran a faraway 2nd and may finally get to win first time.
TRACK WONDER-ISINBAYEVA-NEW PASTURES
3. VIRTUOSO got beaten in the last stride. He has run some forward races in winters and should be able to pull off the win. MOJO has a lot to do despite the able jockey. APPOLONAIRE has been given a couple of gates and looks to fight it out. BRIGADE’S PASSION has a positive rider switch, the half brother to black type speedy BLUE HARE has been showing out in tracks.
4. CIELO REY was a runaway winner in winters, the horse ran a pathetic race in the million in a demanding field hence should find it very tough to concede weight here.. OBAN was a late finisher who may run well again. SOCIAL CLIMBER has the handicap in favor, the distance is a worry. SPARK OF REVERENCE was a winner all the way as a favorite in last run, has been kept keen thereafter. DUKE OF WINDSOR has been prepared, the jockey is an issue as he is most unreliable. If ON then this brother to good type ASTREA has a good chance.
DUKE OF WINDSOR-SPARK OF REVERENCE-CIELO REY
5. LUNAR LUST won well, has to handle the handicap, the tracks are good. JOIN THE PARTY is a good type , the last run win without any preparation needs to be kept in mind. PERFECT ANALYSIS has been prepared after the last place effort. MAN UNITED ran 2nd despite going lame, the rookie has a task on hand. MUSIC FOREVER was a no show horse in last run, can not expect this one belonging to shady stable to reverse the form so fast.
PERFECT ANALYSIS-MAN UNITED-LUNAR LUST
6. FOREST FLAIR has run some very fast races in Mumbai, the handicap is favorable and the preparation strong. SIX SHOOTER is the one who is by a very speedy mare, the last win was classy. CLASSIC CHARGE and RICH REWARD are also speedy types who may throw challenge to the fancied pair.
FOREST FLAIR-SIX SHOOTER
7. CONCEPTUAL is a repeat candidate as he is in top form, the handicap is very stiff.. ACRIDIAN is very well bred and he is shining in tracks. THE LAST SAMMURAI was a game 2nd who likes to run competitively at this distance. SUNNY GOLD won the last race without being fancied by the connections, looks likely to improve. CORBETT is the only youngster here who is kept in fine trim, the trip is well within reach of this son of CHILLIANDRINA who was a game stayer.
ACRIDIAN-CORBETT-THE LAST SAMMURAI
8. SEMPER EADEM from Mumbai has been prepared, he won his only start friendless and now he has to tackle the weight issue in a new environment. ALL RISE may run on board. CHESTERFORD TOUCH is impressive in tracks. AMAZER has the distinct advantage of weight and has been prepared very well.

1. JUST GREAT has come down in handicap and class, may run well. SUN DEVICE warmed up to win under a handicap jockey, lacks early speed. YOU AND I looks pleasing in tracks after the last run, will be in the thick of things. WALTER was belted heavily in last defeat, no tracks thereafter, the usual Puttanna style of keeping things too mysterious, back it only if indications are there.
WALTER-SUN DEVICE-YOU AND I
2. FANTASTIC FLAME was a suggestive 4th under a non push jockey, has a decent chance to strike after the tracks. SHOT OF GOLD was being quietly fancied, the rider is an indicator now. DRAUPDI has a positive rider after last place. FLOWER has no tracks, has come down to the lowest level.
FANTASTIC FLAME-DRAUPDI-SHOT OF GOLD
3. LEON CAVALLO is back after fitness problems, needs the run. ACT OF DUTY has to tackle the penalty fore last win. EXPRESS IT was wide and a bit sluggish when loosing narrowly, the tracks are good. CLOUSEAU has not been able to deliver so far despite some forward runs, the set up is weak. VOODOO MOON may run on board.
EXPRESS IT-ACT OF DUTY-CLOUSEAU
4. FAIR OPTION was an impressive winner who is in very good form to defy the heavy penalty, the distance suits. SAPTASHWA who has been tracking every day is bound to set up a hot pace for the good field. POLISH PATRIOT was an impressive winner on debut, he is bound to improve as he is from a top sire. ARABIAN PRINCE was a confidently ridden all the way winner who is looking to emulate his elder brother over staying trips, may find it difficult to stay all the way as the sire has excelled only in throwing out sprinting types. GOING FOR GOLD was a runaway winner on debut, he has come on after the first run of the season, the weights favor but the jockey is weak.
POLISH PATRIOT-GOING FOR GOLD-FAIR OPTION
5. GURUJOSH is tracking well, needs more distance. BRIGADE’S PRIDE is a well bred who is pleasing in tracks. AKSINYA has been showing out since the winters, this full sister to black type REAL EXCELLENCE has been held back for long, can win if supported sincerely by the illusive stable. ADVANTAGE LOGAN should improve upon the last forward run.
AKSINYA-ADVANTAGE LOGAN-BRIGADE’S PRIDE
6. TOMSK ran disinterestedly in last run, he is tracking fine. REFLECTION OF GOLD has got to defy the handicap to perform here. SUCCEEDING STAR is very well prepared for the day. ARISTOS has been showing out in works. STAR WAVE has been off for too long, now she is taking weight from all other hopefuls, should beast them all if he shows any semblance of last summer’s form.
STAR WAVE-SUCCEEDING STAR-ARISTOS
SPARK OF SOLERNO is an attractive displayer in morning trials. GLORY TO DANCER was a suggestive finisher in last run. SHADES OF WHITE is by the champion sire whose crop has been surprisingly backward this year, the distance is to the liking if the foreign jockey takes him all the way. RED STONE has been scrubbed in works.
SHADES OF WHITE-SPARK OF SALERNO-RED STONE
7. CLASSIC CONCEPT is showing zest in gates, the speedy sire’s son may have come to hand. SPRING A SURPRISE finished a purposeful 2nd in last outing and is bound to be in the fray, the only doubt is in the resilience of the rider to go for a win after his recovery from injury. THE SENATOR is full brother to Derby winner PSYCHIC STRENGTH , may need this run. IMPERIAL GUEST has been tracking speedily for a fling at decent odds. FROZEN FIRE is a well bred horse who is eye catching in tracks.

VEDA PRIYA-GOLDEN KISS-CHARING CROSS
6. TIME IS LIFE has been prepared, the rider is improved.. MR BEAUROCRAT has been running well to merit consideration despite his age. ARKWRIGHT has a try jockey, but no tracks. ZOOMING comes into picture based on his last two runs, the rider will have to stay in front all the way.
TIME IS LIFE-ZOOMING-MR BEAUROCRAT
7. BEE FOR YOU has been given easy runs. FINAL FRONTIER could not speed up in final stages of last race, has a chance to place. ROYAL HAWK is a game stayer, the last track was good. CILANTRO who started racing as a four year was unlucky to run into a good type of youngster in last run, looks in top condition to win over this distance despite being a son of sprinter producing local sire.
CILANTRO-FINAL FRONTIER-ROYAL HAWK
8. PAT ON THE BACK is capable of going all the way. CIAMPINO is impressive in trials. HIGH TOWER is doe to strike any day, the distance appeals. PAL JOEY was a comfortable winner who will look to repeat.

1. STAGE LIGHT had a bad check despite which the horse ran on strongly in the end, the allowance jockey can win here. SUNNY’S CONNEXION is an unreliable type who has not won for very long. SOUTHERN MAGIC belongs to a betting type owner, the tracks are good and can win all the way under this good jockey. WHISPER VALLEY has a chance here as the progeny of BRAVE ACT does well on softer type of underfoot conditions which are prevailing.
SOUTHERN MAGIC-STAGE LIGHT-WHISPER VALLEY
2. XEL was a good gamble last time, the horse has not been tracked thereafter. MIGHTY PRINCE has a chance to be first one from Hyderabad to score here as the field is uncertain. SPARK OF OLDENBERG is looking half fit, there is no shine in tracks. FLIP YOUR DESTINY has come down a lot, it has to be watched now onwards. BLACK BEAUTY should run a forward race under the rookie.
FLIP YOUR DESTINY-BLACK BEAUTY-XEL
3. ZANGI is a winner of three races, last run was thereabouts. DIAMOND SHOWER has been blazing the tracks for the last six months, looks very forward, the jockey is for rates. PRINCE NORBERT folded up after leading in, can not be backed here. MEXICAN WAVE is due to earn for the owners.
DIAMOND SHOWER-ZANGI-MEXICAN WAVE
4. SHOTGUNN is showing out in works, the speedy one gave an indication of positive ness in winters run. LONE RANGER is from a speedy pedigree, may be tried with this jockey. ICE MINT is well bred and showing out in works, will be in the fray. CLASSIC COMMANDER impressed in gates, the rider can fight out.
SHOTGUNN-ICE MINT-CLASSIC COMMANDER
5. SPIRITUALL has been tracking well, may emulate his elder brother who won in style yesterday. ACQUITAINE is the speediest one, he was eased up in last run by this rider , I suspect the family’s fancy was Harish riding on RARE AND PRECIOUS. EINSTEIN is good at handicap, the jockey is a big worry. JERSEY PRIDE is due to shock some day as he has come down a lot. MOTHER’S PRIDE needs more distance, the weights appeal.
6. AMAZING FLORA is worse off on handicap. HIDALGO wins at odds at this handicap. EVENT HORIZON has the jockey for a fighting run. FREE GLIDER has done nothing for long, the good jockey may be able to coax him. MISS MARVELLOUS has been bought down, the rider switch be noted. DANTE’S PEAK is at a good scale, the last run was suggestive.
DANTE’S PEAK-EVENT HORIZON-MISS MARVELLOUS
7. ABOLINE has won all his starts well, the only doubt can be the staying ability of BURDEN OF PRROF off springs, should be ready for a tough race as the others are going to come at him in the end. ALACRITY is the most improved, the last win was good. STAR OF MARMALADE gave indication of being a good type when he won the first start in style over 1400 metres, the last run under the 2nd string jockey braught him to a length behind D’ARTAGNAN, he is bound to show out like his elder brother MYSTICAL over this trip. D’ARTAGNAN won in controversial circumstances last time, allegedly under steroids effect, that puts another blot on his chances apart from the time when he went down as a half money favorite to ABOLINE ion winters.
STAR OF MARMALADE-ABOLINE-D’ARTAGNAN
8. ALGIERS has come down in scales. NOBLE KINGDOM has been a disappointment, does not quicken when it matters. KAJU RAHO has been thereabouts, may be able to get up in the final stages of the race. SHISHAM is very pleasing in tracks.

1. SIPAH SALAR had his chances in last run, looks difficult in this set up. SAVVY CONCEPT has been unlucky in getting hampered in last run, the tracks are very suggestive and the distance will suit. MEGA JOY is likely to improve with the rider switch. BLUE DEW who is well bred is being ridden by a second grade jockey, may not be ready yet. PEACE MAKER has a top jockey, looks short of work. SONG OF JOY is impressive in tracks, the trip is to the liking.
SAVY CONCEPT-SONG OF JOY-PEACE MAKER
2. HIGH ROLLER is by a speedy mare, he is forward in trials. BUCEPHALUS is another fast one who is tracking well. APPROACH has been scrubbed by this very rider, has good speed. SPARK OF BRONTE has a questionable jockey but is due for a win based on his 2nd to MISTIC QUEST who placed in the Fillies Trial Stakes.

3. SOUTHERN GLADIATOR was a confidently backed winner who is looking vastly improved in trials. SON OF THE SOIL managed to win in the dying stages of a close race, the latest spurt was good. AGILITY is brother to SPLENDID SURPRISE , has yet to come to hand. CELTIC HEROINE is the outsider here who is working well.

4. BEE QUICK who won impressively long time ago is short of a run. CHINTZ decimated the field in last run, the well bred may encore. SPARKS is supposed to be a good type from Hyderabad. STAR ASSEMBLY benefited from the favorite not being ON in last run, may run well again.
5. VALID EXPECTATIONS is on the up. EQUIDAE may need a run. LOCK AND LOAD has turned out to be a different horse after the name change, the tracks are good. AFFIRMED CROWN was a runaway winner who has been readied for the day. CARABINERI who ran a close race to finish within a length of VALID EXPECTATIONS is at a good handicap, the mare may not repeat the same run under the doppish jockey.
AFFIRMED CROWN-VALID EXPECTATIONS-LOCK AND LOAD
6. SPLENDID SURPRISE is in top form, the weights are a bother. DIEGO RIVIERA looks good for an encore , the additional 200 meters are worrying for this genuine miler. SOUTHERN CHARGE had warmed up with a back breaking load to win easily, will be in the fray. VANQUISH appears to be getting into form.

2. POCKET DYNAMITE was in demand in last run, the rider switch may work. WINNING ATTITUDE has not been able to deliver in last three years, appears to have some problem or the other.

5. GERSHWIN is in fine condition, the run under non try jockey was a big indicator. CLAIRDON is speedy, the tracks are impressive. WORLD IS TOO MUCH was given a easy ride to finish behind the too good MISSIZIPPY, should run well. THE WORLD IS MINE was 2nd after a questionable ride, the present rider has poor credentials as well. MOVING INFERNO is pleasing in works. TIME SPEED should fight out after last run and the obvious rider switch.

F CROWN gives this controversial rider a chance to win on full brother to SMART N SPECIAL for his brother in this lot of non performers. ROYAL LEGEND has been tracked well by this very rider, may be involved. SENNA gives a chance to this aging rider to get back to winning ways after the bad injury.
2. CHINA TOWN is brother to CAIRNDHU , has been tuned to fitness, the last run in winters needs to be ignored. PORTOBELLO is a place hopeful, the last run was good. GOLDEN CROWN may run on board, can not be backed. CELESTIAL WAY was a notable 2nd in winters, the present tracks are speedy.
CHINA TOWN-CELESTIAL WAY—PORTOBELLO
3. MISS EVERYWHERE was a good gamble of the owners at Hyderabad last year winning in great style. Now she has been tracked by this very rider, may be the first one from Hyderabad to win here this season as the field is weak. RASHIDA ran a disappointing race last time. KICKING KING has run in most illustrious company in his career so far and looks much better than what the handicapper has assigned now. The choice of a third class rider makes it very interesting as it will show whether the horse wins because of the gifted handicap or looses because of this tame rider. The trainer is one of those who are mostly clapping for others. ISINBEYAVA looks improved from works.

4. COORG HONEY was a runaway winner who has a good jockey, the step up in distance should suit the filly. RUGGED BEAUTY warmed up late in last run, she is showing out in tracks.

5. IN THE ZONE is a front running type with the top jockey , has to tackle the top weight though. OWN VOICE lost condition in winters like most off springs of Ontario, needs to be watched today as he has beaten better ones before. JUST IN TIME is reverting back to sprints, may resume winning ways, watch support in ring. EDMONDO is showing speed in tracks.
JUST IN TIME-IN THE ZONE-OWN VOICE
6. A very competitive field with at least six hopefuls. GLORIOSA is beautifully bred and has won both runs in style, the distance may not bother. CAPTIVATING is the best on handicap having won four times and it lost at Mumbai after leading up to the post. ASTRAL FLASH who beat CAPTIVATING in a thriller is obviously at a weight disadvantage now, though it ran a fine 2nd to D’ARTAGNAN. JAQUELINE and GYPSY MAGIC come into contention based on their multi million run, the former pleased in a mock race. The later lacks a run but has the breeding to show class. Last one may be a surprise improvement from the disintegrating stable of the racing baron; THE PEARL who ran a close 3rd to ASTRAL FLASH after leading for most of the way.
7. MAN DOWN UNDER has a precocious pedigree, may show out under the good jockey on first run. STEP IN STYLE may run well. BRUNETTA was a miserable failure at cramped odds. LEAVE IT TO ME is the best bred here who is full sister to RUBEN STAR . She is in fine fettle as is evident from the tracks. NOBLE SACRIFICE was given a questionable ride when loosing as a favorite, the preparation is very suggestive.

6. EINSTEIN is tracking well. SPARK OF GOLD is an improving type who has to deal with the handicap. WELCOME BACK is in fine form. SALSERA was let go in the straight a bit too early in last run, may amend now as the rider has a good chance on handicap. STAR WAVE has beaten SALSERA both times they were racing together, the tracks are pleasing and the mock race suggestive.FIRE ZONE won some commendable races in winters, looks very keen in tracks.
7. BLUSHING BEAM has a chance despite the number of three year olds here. SCUBARIOO is showing out in tracks, but who knows with Hyderabad racers. CLASSIC CHARGE, TALISKER and CAYENNE are being ridden by the family members and one of these three is going to be the one to show out. TALISKER who is moderately bred showed lots of enthusiasm in last win to merit following. CAYENNE needs this run. NOX ran disappointingly in last run.
8. IMPERIAL APPLAUSE is showing speed in tracks. BAFFLED has been bought down in handicap. TESTEROSA has failed to win on backing, the rider has a task on hand. NEARCO MASTER is working well to show out here.

ACQUITAINE goes over the pet distance now, has a fight on hand. ORIGINALITY is looking very fresh after the last run, the handicap favors.
7. YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL decimated the field with an impressive show on opening day, the step up in distance is a poser. OBAN showed good acceleration in the finishing effort, looks a good type. ANGELFIRE with a run to benefit from should uphold the excellent track work and the good breeding. SUPERB STYLE has the Narredu’s connection, may run a good race.

GOING FOR GOLD went all the way over 1400 m in her maiden run which indicates that she is a good type. The breeding is quite suggestive. The tracks are impressive. SEVEN STAR was a big flop at half money when he got caught at the post by an aged horse, can not be considered now.

2. SPICY STAR is a speedy type who impressed in gates. SPARK OF CLASS showed improvement when finishing a good 2nd. LUNAR LUST is working very well, the jockey switch to be considered. GOOD COMPANION is looking keen in works.
LUNAR LUST-SPICY STAR-SPARK OF CLASS
3. A very poor bunch of runners with no credentials what so ever. ALL RISE has run in higher class, the jockey is basically a riding boy. DRAMATIC DANCER has an allowance jockey and has been tracking OK. CUTE ANGEL has been given enough runs. AAJ TAK who is a maiden can shock them all if he warms up.
AAJ TAK-DRAMATIC DANCCER-CUTE ANGEL
4. POETIC is working well. MARCEGALIA has lots of initial speed. LESTER is the joker in this pack, if POETIC does not show out he has a decent chance. EASY is going down in scales with each run. AHIRA is a front running type. LUMINOUS GOLD has been tracking impressively, the jockey is ?
5. FLEET INDIAN is beating FLEETING ARROW in tracks which needs to be considered. He is full brother to black type BROWN SUGAR and likes to race in front. The only competitor for this race is the classically bred from the distaff side BRUCKNER who has been shaped up for the day. He had run a close 3rd as a maiden and looks most likely to shape up like his elder brothers DIEGO RIVIERA and SPIRITUALL. POLIS PATRIOT from the outstanding sire has been attractive in tracks and has a good jockey for maiden run, needs to be watched. SYSTEMATIC is showing out in tracks.
BRUCKNER-FLEET INDIAN-POLISH PATRIOT
6. LOGAN’S RUN is running on demotion, has an allowance jockey. SUGAR RAY has been given a run and looks good here , the only worry is the jockey who is most unreliable. RIMPUCHE has been knocking for a win, looks stiff at handicap. MIGHTY HEART is working well. SNOB VALUE is being readied to win soon.
SUGAR RAY-RIMPUCHE-MIGHTY HEART
7. CALMING INFLUENCE is working fast, needs a run. THE SPARTAN gave indications of his class in both wins during winters, looks very tough on handicap. VALID EXPECTATIONS is a speedy one who is pleasing in works. SILKEN THOMAS was an easy winner who should try to repeat with the better jockey now.
SILKEN THOMAS-THE SPARTAN-SPARK OF ISIS
8. VIRTUOSO has been well prepared, he is due for a win. CORLEONE was hailed as a winner long way from the finish last race of the winter season, the jockey from foreign shores had eased him up to loose , it was very hard to digest his explanations. Let us see if there is a tendency in the horse to stop in the straight or was it done intentionally last time. I still feel this horse should not loose today. CLASSIC TOUCH is tracking well. COLOUR OF JOY should have come up after the last run.
CORLEONE-VIRTUOSO-COLOUR OF JOY

1. NANO BLUE who is still a maiden as a six year old has a jockey who is doing well. KALISKA is also a maiden at 5 years, the gate practice should have bought him on. STICKIEWICKETDOTCOM has been tracked and based on some of its runs last year at Bangalore has a decent chance in this poor set up. LATIN TWISTER was a surprise winner who looks in good nick. The jockey on BORN PURPLE is non try type.
STICKIEWICKETDOTCOM-NANO BLUE-LATIN TWISTER
2. RAGING RIVER has been very well prepared and given a run, the tracks are speedy. HURRICANE SPIRIT may improve to place. PINE FOREST is working well. PRINCE OF ARGYLE had shown some promise last year to win in this lowest class, has been prepared. OPERA PRINCESS continues to fail as favorite. POKEMAN MASTER a weirdly named horse ran a suggestive race. MAGICAL MANTRA can surprise at the lowest weight.
RAGING RIVER-POKEMAN MASTER-MAGICAL MANTRA
3. EXCEPTIONAL who is speedy has age against her.AZAZEL who has been pleasing in tracks has a try jockey. SPANISH CROWN is working well. ARABIAN SPEED is capable of going all the way in front, the jockey is poor. VIVID COLOURS is good for this distance. BIG BUDGET has come down in scales, the jockey is useful type.
VIVID COLOURS-BIG BUDGET-AZAZEL
4. CILANTRO was a most impressive winner on debut and looks likely to repeat. BOSTON RANGER was a suggestive runner who is pleasing in tracks. OHIYESA won a maiden’s race comfortably, has a neat chance in this class also. GREEN PASSION should be involved here.
5. OUR LITTLE SAVAGE has run with better types at Bangalore, the distance is within compass. CAFFE COFFEE has carried weights and run some good finishes, the jockey has a decent chance on this one. RED KEY POINT was a good winner who should be able to defy the penalty. MR MAJESTIC is working well.
OUR LITTLE SAVAGE-CAFÉ COFFEE-RED KEY POINT
6. LOOKING TO LEAD has been given gates, has an average jockey. AMELLIA CORDELL showed out in last run, will be involved for supremacy. MARATHA CONQUEROR and HI HENNESSY won well and would be looking to do well again.

1. ARABIAN PRINCESS is often not tracked but runs a forward race. The last run should have brought her on. TIME MAGIC is getting into racing fitness, the tracks are improved. LIVING FREE has a poor jockey, may be for rates, the tracks are very suggestive. FIRST WARRIOR is due to get into winning mode. BEUTIFUL BLONDIE is at a suitable handicap, may run well.
ARABIAN PRINCESS-LIVING FREE-FIRST WARRIOR
2. MASTER YODA likes this trip, the last run was educational. ROYAL HAWK has a try jockey, the trip is suitable. WAY TO WEALTH comes into picture based on his last run. CHOCOLATE BROWNIE’S last run could be ignored, may resume winning ways.
MASTER YODA-WAY TO WEALTH-ROYAL HAWK
3. SEE THE TRUTH is showing out in tracks. MR BEAUROCRAT is a game horse, looks very capable of running a forward race. ALL FOR YOU is being scrubbed in tracks , can go all the way. SURYA RATH is a sitter on pure handicap.
SURYA RATH-ALWAYS FOR YOU-MR BEAUROCRAT
4. RICH ROUGE was given an easy run last time, he is bound to make it tough for others to catch him. THE WORLD IS MINE looks good on paper based on last 2nd, the run today will prove the capabilities of this mediocre rider. MOVING INFERNO is working very well. LOTUS POND is tracking fine.
THE WORLD IS MINE-RICH ROUGE-MOVING INFERNO
5. FULL SPEED is improved to go all the way. LYRA is getting into form, she is a game horse. WAR HEAD is in good form. SANDOKAN is a forward runner, impressed in gates. ARTSTIC WAY has weight advantage.
6. SERIOUS WARRIOR is well prepared, needs a run. PAL JOEY looks fit, failed as a favorite in last season. ROMANTIC LIAISON is impressive in works. CADRE NOIR is appealing in tracks, can win after a long time.
CADRE NOIR-PAL JOEY-ROYAL LIAISON
