In and out running of horses has become the trend at Pune and like Mysore it is very necessary to wait till the last few minutes to lay any bets. The authorities appear to be turning a blind eye to appaling results due to malpractice by the so called professional of this trade.
1. MARINE ZONE has won in higher class before, he is being scrubbed in tracks. The only worry is the intention of the ordinary trainer.RED CLOUD can not be considered after the last few bad runs.

1. STRAUSS comes into reckoning based on last run. BLACK PHANTOM had won a staying race last year, has handicap chance if tried. ENCHANTED can place here. WINNING TREAT has the rider repeating at lowest handicap.
BLACK PHANTOM-WINNING TREAT-STRAUSS
2. MIGHTY CRUSADER thrashed the field emphatically in last run, will try to repeat. STAR WARRIOR has been touted as a classic hopeful, last run was bad as he got beaten by very ordinary horses. XISCA ran an improved 3rd in Bangalore Derby, may improve.
MIGHTY CRUSADER-STAR WARRIOR
3. EMERALD STAR is catching the eye in mornings, has a good jockey to carry top weight. AZUL has tracked well after last effort and will be fancied to win. BARBARA goes over the right trip, may place. MARINE ZONE can run well if he does not bleed, is knocking for a win. WINGS OF ANGELS was a comfortable winner who can run well again .
EMERALD STAR –AZUL-MARINE ZONE
4. CRÈME DE LA CRÈME is a speedy type in forward form. PERPETUATION had won a made up race. MYSTIC SPLENDOUR had won easily and is a candidate for repeat. PERGRINE FALCON had gone away to win in style, retains form in tracks. LORD OF KILLARNEY was a surprise placer who has the average jockey repeating. ABERDOVEY who has not run for very long has tracked well.
MYSTIC SPLENDOUR-CRÈME DE LA CRÈME-PERGRINE FALCON
5. GLORIOUS STAR is half brother to speedy ARES, he is being scrubbed in works. LEGIONNAIRE ran well in lowest class. OCEAN TOUCH has been showing plenty of s[peed in works, may be out for a run only. CORGO ERGO SUM has been sharpened up well, has speedy breeding. EVENT HORIZON who is by Razeen is catching the eye in tracks, the sires wards have been disappointing in last two years, hopefully this one may run well. OCEAN STAR was given a questionable ride, needs to be given another chance.
OCEAN STAR-EVENT HORIZON-GLOWING STAR
6. DIEGO RIVIERA who beat MR GREEDY last time needs a run. MR GREEDY has form and weights in favor. ASTRAL FLASH has not delivered despite looking good on number of occasions, may do it now. JUVENTUS has come to hand and with blinkers on has a decent chance at this handicap. WEIZHOU can be considered after the good win of CLARION CALL yesterday. ECSTATICA is at bottom weight and is a good type.
JUVENTUS-ASTRAL FLASH-MR GREEDY
7. ASHWA PAARTH was impressive in mocks. CHECK HER OUT has enough speed to go all the way. PHOSPHOR is waiting for a gamble to be planned, last years runs were emphatic. SMOKING ACES has an aging jockey. AQUALINA is in fine form and low weights appeal. THEIR LITTLE SISTER has the jockey to hit the front and go away.
PHOSPHOR-CHECK HER OUT-THEIR LITTLE SISTER
8. ROYAL COMPANION is in good form, the tracks are suggestive. SABA has not run for long, can surprise as she had won in first appearance here last year. AAJA NACHLE is a decent type who won well in Mumbai and has tracked well. TYUMEN was backed down last time, may be tried again. TOMMY CARMICHAEL is maintaining form.

1. TELL ME MORE is in top form, the mock race was a fine show. DELPHI has distance to bother about. PREMIER CONNECTION was well hidden from the notice of all till he ran a good race to win at good odds, the breeding indicates more wins. PERFECT STRENGTH is a stayer with a poor jockey.
TEL ME MORE-PREMIER CONNECTION
2. DIVINE MAJESTY has been given an easy run, has a poor lot to tackle if tried. ASHWA PRAHAR has a good jockey to build up on last run, ideal would be 1000m only. IJLAL has an allowance jockey, does not have early speed. HOUDINI was caught on the post, needs to be reconsidered.
3. HARMONICA has run well at longer trips. PILLATUS was a noticeable finisher in last run, has worked well. TEQUILLA has penalty and a shorter trip against a repeat chance.
4. HICKORY has tracked well, may get on board now. WELLS FARGO is a winner of three races, needs bit more of the distance. BENEDICTUS lost all chances by veering out in last run, needs to be considered in a weak field. BEMISAAL has the right jockey and the low weight to redeem for last failure.
5. NATIVE KNIGHT goes over the favorable trip but the handicap is against for the still a maiden. CABRIOLET goes over a distance which should be tiring for him. CLARION CALL has a decent chance to upset as she has run well over this trip before. WHITE KNIGHT has come up a lot in ratings, has a tough task here.
CLARION CALL-NATIVE KNIGHT
6. BELLIGERENT has the rider to fight out, has a chance here. CLOUD COVER has come on a lot, the fly in jockey has a good chance to win a waiting race. ADALLIA has always done well at pune, can upset. SUAVE MENTE had problems of lameness when he went down in a fight in last run, may win if fit.
SUAVE MENTE-CLOUD COVER-BELLIGERENT
7. DANTE ROSSETI is a good type, will try to go all the way. LUNAR QUEST is taking weight and should be fighting out, last run was questionable as the winner had won too easily after heavy backing. FROST FAIRY may show some improvement, should only be raced at shorter trips.
LUNAR QUEST-DANTE ROSSETI
8. NATIONAL GLORY has improved after the last run. HOTTIE has tracked very well in Mumbai, needs to be watched. NATIVE LADY was a good 4th in a close finish, the rider is itching for Delhi racing to start so that he gets a chance to get winners, here he is treated as a side kick only in the stables. STERLING SILVER may run well.
NATIVE LADY-NATIONAL GLORY-HOTTIE
9. GOLDEN HEART is too well bred, now runs in lowest class, the owner is known for his negative tactics on favorites, the last run was notable. RED PASSION may run on board. PRINCE OF TROY is at good handicap. DANCING SHADOW has been given couple of gates.

1. GOOD GIFT has won before with this rider, has weights to worry about. GARA FLUID has good early speed and the jockey with full allowance is ideal. SHUBHA belongs to a poor trainer, may be tried here. SIZZLING STAR has been well prepared , last run was easy.
SIZZLING STAR-GARA FLUID-GOOD GIFT
2. KING’S ADMIRAL is looking good on paper, wait for true indications as the owner is known to hoodwink the system. STUD MUFFIN had won when least expected, has a weak jockey. ANOTHER VOICE has a rider to deliver, needs preparation. BORN TO PERFORM can run well here, no tracks as is the habit with this trainer.
KING’S ADMIRAL-BORN TO PERFORM-ANOTHER VOICE
3. IRISH MINT has been running well at the main centre and the tracks are good, the well bred is still a maiden. SNOW PEAKS has come down a lot, has tracked well and should be considered here. BORN BEAUTY is going over a longish run. AVT OF DUTY is running into form. SUPER SPECTACLE has handicap in favor, can win if fit.
SUPER SPECTACLE-IRISH MINT-SNOW PEAKS
4. RAPTOR FORCE can run a leading race but distance is bit more. TALK OF THE DEVIL is due for a win, has come down and aged as well, the last run was suggestive as also the field is suspect. NATIVE TALENT has the dangerous combination of the seedy trainer with the top rider, they have mostly failed on favorites.
TALK OF THE DEVIL-NATIVE TALENT
5. MERCUTIO has impressed in gates. SHERDIL is a winner of three races, the rider is poor. SHE’S FOR CASH has come on a bit, may run well. RIVER RULE failed to win at the premier centre and the trainer has bagged a few horses from this owner who wants to be the top owner in the country, the jockey is there to deliver if backed, looks fast in tracks. SOUTH PARADISE has tracked well and is due for a win.
RIVER RULE-SOUTH PARADISE-SHE’S FOR CASH
6. KAPATHOS is in good form, can run well even here. ALWAYS FOR YOU has worked well and is a consistent type. LESTER won easily in Bangalore, may be tried. LANCASHIRE is coming out of hibernation, is due to start earning soon. VOICE OF INDIA is the gamble horse he has won at these weights with this rider before. VAYU PUTRA has low weights and the rider to deliver.
VOICE OF INDIA-VAYUPUTRA-KAPATHOS
7. CITRALI has been handled shabbily, she had won with authority and then put under lids, can the rookie finish on. JUGNU looks improved. IT’S MY PARTY had won at long odds and the present tracks indicate the desire to win again with this one. AMIABLE LADY has been bought down a lot, the rookie is the question mark? THE DARLING BOY was given a run, can go all the way at low weights.
THE DARLING BOY-AMIABLE LADY-CITRALI
8. FREE SPIRIT needs a shorter trip, the tracks are fast. MILAGRO has been in dumps for long. REGENT’S PARK has tracked well, its still on waiting list. BUCK PASSER JUNIOR has a handicap chance. MINCHU has looked good this season.
