1. STAR OF GIBRALTOR is the youngster here who looks out of sort as last run was poor and tracks are not convincing. TITIAN has fought out and lost both times, the hapless rider may get a win. LIVING THE DREAM was conceding weight in Race 48, gets a good advantage to consider now.
2. CELESTIAL CALL goes over pet trip, the field is weak. ARZAAN may get on board. RISKY BUSINESS was given a run, has worked well. PUMBA was kept easy in a sprint, added trip will suit if tried. ALEJANDRA is bred for sprint, trainer is taking a chance, may not do well.
3. HOME ALONE has tough task with penalty. ARTIC MINSTREL appears to be in good form and may be tried. ARISTOCRATIC has come down in scales, last effort was fair. AWESOME SMILE has been forward, gets a good jockey.
ARISTOCRATIC-AWESOME SMILE-ARTIC MINSTREL.
4. AFROJACK is bred for speed and has a chance to win. BARRINGO has been tracking for long, will fight out. VICTORIAN VICE ran green and may run true now, distance is sharp.
5. STRINOFMYHEART has good speed to keep interested well into the straight, but the class penalty is against a repeat with this rookie. ANGEL’S PURSUIT & TAMARAI are the two 5 year olds who can upset, both are regaining form. REBECCA has good initial speed and will run well here. ALIYANA could not deliver last time and the owner P UDHAS went home SAD that day, has a handicap jockey now. AFLAME is in form to go for it.
6. ANCIENT WONDER is in best form of his life. ATTILA has lots of reputation, goes over ideal trip. BEAUTIFUL STRANGER is the one who was a fighting 4th and can be a serious contender now. FOREST FLAIR has a lot to do well, preparation is good. Watch out for WEIZHOU , he looks improved from works and gets a try jockey now.
BEAUTIFUL STRANGER-ANCIENT WONDER-WEIZHOU.
7. NATIVE KNIGHT struggles in last win, weight is against. AIRPLAY has been given a run, can win now. BERLUSCONI should be considered after the last good win.
8. SMART STRIDER looks good and should win if tried genuinely. A CHILD is a well bred who needs a run. HALLE ran a weak race last time. NIGELLA was a fair 4th to some good ones, has a good chance if favorite falters.
DAYS BEST===SMART STRIDER
DOUBLE-----AFROJACK X AIRPLAY
