A very interesting third race, with many legit contenders. PRINCE OF VENICE is a sprint specialist, S.MAHADIA will try a coup with him. He has a solid reputation and game on! They are aware of the threat of CANDY APPLE on two consecutive wins. He has a terrific turn of foot, but he will need to catch PRINCE OF VENICE.

ARIZONA SILK is in constant improvement. EHSAAN is a real threat from the inside draw. FOOLS GOLD continues to disappoint. HAYLOR and STREAM AHEAD won’t finish very far.
