TIMELESS [4.30] has always pulled out a good run fresh and he should be suited by the long run home. Up in grade and no surprise to see another forward showing back from a spell. Strong fancy.
With David Allan in saddle #3 SELFIE STAR [5.00] can bounce back after disappointing in stronger company last start.
5.30 COLLEGIUM [5.30] appreciated the rise in distance to break through last time out. He is the only 3yo winner in the race and is a clear top pick despite the big weight.
Ignore her last start at mile trip SUMMER RAYS [6.00] has not been far away at recent outings in stronger company, she will appreciate a drop back in her pet distance and is the one to beat.
Short back-up of 10 days ALYATIES [6.30] will strip fitter second up from a spell and gets a positive jockey change. Can strike. ROYAL ACE is down in grade and working well, looks threatening.
SUMAAQ [7.00] resumes with slightly longer races in mind but the 3.5kg claim helps and can hit the line strongly late.
Why blinkers off on WAY AHEAD ??
WILSHIRE ran well first up in pune at this trip before trying at various trips last prep. Drop in grade and distance he can shed his maiden tag.
DAYS BEST : TIMELESS
BEST OF LUCK
