2.00 A chance is taken on #2 MONACO, who hasn't fired on all cylinders so far this season but the class drop can do the trick. While #5 MISS WILLY NILLY won well and can defy the penalty. Can’t knock winning form.
2.30 Well beaten last start favourite #1 ADVIKA can make amends in this set.
3.00 #5 OAK BROOK drops in grade and trip , will like this shorter journey to get off the mark.
3.30 #3 NOVIKOV finished 2nd to good type Bergamot , she can strike now stepping up in distance.
Keep an eye on only 3yo #5 HOUTZEN who may have needed last effort and can upset with 3kg useful claim.
4.00 #5 AIRLIFT warmed up late to pick up the runner-up berth behind a good type 3yo. The half bred to Awarding & Unforgettable will appreciate the step up in trip and appeals on weights.
4.30 The way #3 MULTIGLORY finished on his latest start suggested he was capable of getting back to winning ways.
5.00 #1 SMITH AND WESSON has been eased in grade and has handicap in favour to strike in this set. While #3 HAIL THE QUEEN who is knocking on the doors is the pick of the remainder.
2.00 #2 EAGLEINTHESKY was closing fast when fourth over a sprint on debut and with this step up in trip sure to suit, the got abroad 3-y-o gets the nod in his handicap debut.
#8 GANDALF rates as the main danger stepping up at ideal distance.
2.30 #1 CHARLES BRIDGE came from the clouds to win his debut in Mumbai. Has been given a mock back from the spell and has more to offer stepping up in distance. Has strong formline ( Enchanted ).
3.00 #7 GLYNDERBOURNE took a marked step forward when pulling clear of the remainder with a ownermate at short scurry earlier in the month and she looks vastly improved, a relatively confident selection.
3.30 #1 QUEEN CREDIBLE has been in excellent form recently at a higher level and she looks the one to beat dropping in grade.
#9 EDEN ROCK has good early speed and is the only 3yo in this field, outside hope.
4.00 Kolkota challenger #7 SANA is full bred to last year St. Leger winner Mathaiyus hence she is sure to be suited by a step up at this trip, she is the highest rated and unquestionably remains capable of better, which makes her more interesting than most at this sort of level.
4.30 #4 JETFIRE has a handy draw and the best piece of form on offer having been second last twice including in a strong event last to last start, so he gets the vote in a race where experience could prove a major asset.
Of the first timers, #5 KENNEDY looks one who has impressed in preparations, so the half bred to classy filly JAQUELINE is worthy of consideration.
5.00 Good third last time #5 DOUBLEDOWN can go one better now stepping down in trip.
#3 TENERIFE [2.00] just needed her last in a fair field. She should come on nicely and has a plum draw.
#2 GRAND ACCORD [2.30] has scored readily the last twice and can defy the penalty. The four-year-old looks progressive at this sort of level and should be involved at the finish again if stays this mile and a quarter trip.
The Bangalore Summer Million ( Grade 3 winner) #2 DESPERADO [3.00] is certainly good enough to open his account at this track. He is open to stacks of improvement with 2/3 victories in his kitty.
Well bred #6 MARIANELLA arrives here having shown significant promise on the gallops and she can prove up to making a winning debut.
#5 NEW ENGLAND [4.00] ran on strong to finish on the placegetter’s heels last start while resuming. Strips fitter and will relish the step up in trip. He is suited by the terms of race and gets the top jockey in the saddle. Strong fancy.
Ignore her last effort over an inadequate trip #10 ARC OF PASSION is doing well off her current rating and perhaps the drop in trip could see her in the winner's enclosure.
1-1 BRONX [2.30] arrives race-fit and on the back of a good win. He is still unexposed and has the potential for further improvement.
2-2 WINTER RENAISSANCE [3.00] is holding his form well at present and is expected to prove good enough to strike here.
3-1 OSPREV ARROW [3.30],ran a fair race after rest. She is even better over this trip and should be right there.
3-6 KALINA is well prepared and would be one to consider if she attracted market support. Watch betting.
Bred in purple 4-8 ROBERTA failed to justify favouritism over a mile on debut at Bangalore but kept on well in the closing stages, suggesting this additional furlong may well be a source of immediate improvement. Hard to beat.
5-1 HARMONY OF THE SEA [4.30] has been below par in a higher grade recently but she can bounce back to winning ways in this grade. The 2.5kg claim helps.
6-1 MYSTIC FLAME is coming to hand and is worth considering strongly in this set.
Shocked close home last start #6 FURIOSA [3.00] can make amends.
Keep an eye on #2 CEZANNE who showed zest for racing after many listless runs.
#10 BONAFIDE showed improvement last time out and Mallesh Narredu’s filly can go one better now.
Dropped in grade stablemate #2 ENCHANTED is dangerous if allowed an easy lead and if sustains an extra furlong.
Made an impressive debut #5 OUTRAGEOUS [4.00] looks good to open her account in this set.
#5 VAN DYKE’s [4.30] performance in a graded events at Bangalore in summer suggests that the colt should be capable of winning a race of this nature. He is the only winner over a mile trip in this field.
#2 COSTA BRAVIA [5.00] left the opposition for dead at this track and trip last time out back from the spell and Pesi Shroff’s ward could take some stopping if in the same form.
#9 IMPALA [5.30] came desperately close to winning a similar track and trip event latest and he can claim a deserved success. The 2.5kg claim helps.
#13 VALEGRO let down favourite backers last time and could make amends stepping up in distance.
1-1 KILKARRY BRIDGE made a highly promising start to his career at this course and distance and will be hard to beat with improvement on the cards.
2-3 BOYSTOCK ROCK put in an improved display last time, finishing on fifth, but needs to prove that was no flash in the pan. Watch betting.
2-9 OLIVIA CASPEN is the one who can upset. Her couple of efforts at the end of the Mumbai season were noteworthy.
Track specialist 3-5 WILD FIRE got back to winning form on his recent outing and he can score again. Strong fancy.
4-2,GALLANT KNIGHT is doing well off his current rating and perhaps the drop in ideal trip could see him in the winner's enclosure. He is the C&D winner.
5-1 NAVIGATOR could be the one to get off the mark having caught the eye when well backed and third over an inadequate 7f last time.
6-6 GOOD THING needs to leave behind her reappearance effort at 1400m trip which quite simply wasn't her true running but that was may be her lung opener. She has matched strides with the best of this centre and has won over the same distance as a juvenile. She looks handicapped to her best currently.
