1. SUNSPIRIT will find it very tough to stay this trip with top weight. TOP SECRET has a negative jockey. NADIA has been sparingly raced but this trainer does not believe in track work. SUPREMACY is at the low weights with the good rider to go for repeat.
2. SUMMER SUN has a weak jockey for this trip, has worked well. ARGENTUM is a known bleeder who has a rookie, looks best on handicap. NORTH CAPE can run a forward race. RAAGA flopped badly as a hot favorite and like all such cases was known to have bled, it appears to be a routine here that whenever a hot favorite who has been packed from the stables , is declared a bleeder the moment he flops, AFFIRMATIVE from the notorious stables was such a case last week. RAAGA has capability to recover for the loses as the field is for the taking. By virtue of a weak field B Puttana, one of the worst trainer’s at this centre may find his horse opening as a favorite as a good rider is atop. ROYAL SPIRIT has worked well and can win since no other horse looks capable. HILLTON is a morning glory with a work jockey, has good bloodlines but has not trained well.
3. STELLAR AMBITION is a good one with this scheming trainer who got a maiden winner in first run may be for the first time in his training career. The horse is working very well. TREASURE MOUNTAIN is a well bred who by default has landed in a weak racing centre, he demolished the opposition with a scintillating run over this trip. ALDERSON is yet to come to hand. THUNDERBAY is from a speedy mare and should be considered in sprints.
TREASURE MOUNTAIN-STELLAR AMBITION.
4. WILD NEXUS an aptly named horse is sparingly raced due to gate problems, looks good here as again the field is weak and lots of weak jockeys are cashing in on mount fees runs.CROWN JEWEL may run on board, Ramu has yet to do something on tracks. VAYOMI has been prepared after stable chancge, has been a beaten favorite number of times. VOODOO MOON the oldie has a good rookie.WALTER is still a maiden.
WILD NEXUS-VAYOMI-VOODOO MOON.
5. ARABIAN PRINCE looked a winner till the post in last run, has much better weights now. ORDAINED ONE should be the main challenger, has beaten the first name in a close fight last year. SUN ABSOLUTE has a tough job at comparative weights over this trip.
ARABIAN PRINCE-ORDAINED ONE.
6. OPTIMUS PRIME won a thriller and now goes over pet distance. VALAHAK is on the up and has the good rider. BOURNE SUPREME steps down in distance and may find the pace too hot to handle. SECRET PUNCH lives with hope, looks good in works. SILKEN TOUCH has good turn of foot, last win was authoritative.
SILKEN TOUCH-OPTIMUS PRIME-VALAHAK.
7. CELESTIAL SON needs to be followed, something was not right in last run. ITS MY PARTY ran nicely with a rookie, now has a decent chance. MARK OF GENIUS is coming to hand. STAR OF DESIRE failed to do anything when favored last time.
CELESTIAL SON-ITS MY PARTY-STAR OF DESIRE
8. HACKETT was a good 2nd, has a try jockey. SHIVALIK PRINCE has worked pleasingly. SARATOGA SPRING was not convincing in last labored win, has trained on. CHANTILLY who is tracking fast has a terrible jockey. NO DOUBT has credentials to win at good odds for this average trainer who is known for in & out running of his wards.
NO DOUBT-SRATOGA SPRING-SHIVALIK PRINCE.
9. ENDURING SPEED has come down in class and is tracking fine. DANCE TO THE TUNE was given a forward run last time. SPARKLING IMAGE has done well with weak riders. MITRAYA has not raced long due to physical problems, may run well. TRIBAL QUEEN hopes to place.
ENDURING SPEED-DANCE TO THE TUNE-MITRAYA.
DAYS BEST===ARABIAN PRINCE
DOUBLE--------WILD NEXUS X SILKEN TOUCH
