Pune 25/9/2016

1.30 #6 AURORA AUSTRALIS makes her handicap debut after matching strides with better ones in terms races. Although she will need more ground but gets in under the minimum after the claim and gets the chance to shed her maiden tag. 

2.00 #2 ART DECO had excuses last time (saddle slip), was a smart maiden winner previously when up on the speed. Will burn forward again and prove tough to catch. 

2.30 #1 DUBROVNIK was good at his debut, did have every chance in next start when favourite. Now gets the blinkers on, fitter, maps well and an extra furlong. Ticks a lot of boxes to make amends. 

3.00 #2 GLORIOUS HYMN is still a maiden and has been brought down systematically in scales. Fair chance in this bottom class with massive switch in saddle. 

3.30 #2 BRAHMACHARI's last two runs have been thereabout efforts and they were in good class events. Stepping up in trip but only win at this distance was at this track. Always saves his best for when Trevor jumps on board. Keep safe. 
#5 RULE DOWNUNDER was slowly away last out. If takes level jump can give this a shake rising in distance. Don't discount. 

4.00 #6 QUIXOTIC is on debut and looks a nice enough type on preparation. Can win in this weak set. 

4.30 #1 UNFORGETTABLE YOU comes off solid debut win, is promising and can challenge if she goes on from her maiden win. Dam was st. Leger winner hence can stay strongly. Hard to beat despite conceding weight. 

5.00 #1 VISTANA was close-up at first run back from spell against youngsters and will strip fitter for that run. Drops in grade and can strike now among her own age group. 
Keep an eye on another demotee #4 VALENTINO with 3.5 kg claim is the main danger to the top pick.

Days Best : ART DECO
