The opener is a tricky one with the short priced favorite. We know the horses in this grade are not reliable. P NAGADOO has lined up both of it’s FORCES, he definitely has a very good chance in landing this one. SPECIAL FORCE is in superb form, and won’t be a surprise if he wins. The only problem is to take a risk at such short odds. CRUSHING FORCE will set a hot tempo. VALERIN and GREATFIVEEIGHT won’t finish very far. Our pick is XANTHUS, R K CHUMUN loves this horse and he said he will try everything. For once he has a good draw, the one to beat.
MANETHEREN has been in terrific form this season, if he gets a soft lead he can go all the way. He is a serious player. TICKET TO CAIRO has changed yards, will be in the mix. QUEST FOR GOOD and ALPIROD are not our priorities. WALNUT needs to progress even more. MASTEROFALLISURVEY is a place chance. SPRY still has a lot under his belt, he is constantly improving and will be even better. P C ORFFER is confident he can score.
The most interesting race in the card, everyone can win this. G I JOE last race is to be ignored, he is a horse with a big heart. He will be a threat. CANARY ISLAND is one of the fittest horses in the V.ALLET yard, they are confident to get this one. They backed him with confidence. NIMITZ is a good place chance. PROTEA PARADISE, LIT and MR GREEN STREET will fight for the places most likely. STAGEWORLD is very much liked by his yard, they fancy him to do well. He is the biggest threat to our selection.
This one is hard to predict, many of the stable believe in their chances but they do have some reserves. CAPTAIN FLYNT is down in class, he can do well. Beware of POP ICON, he can cause an upset. A place bet is worth it. JUNIPER LANE is an honest performer, cannot be written off. S.JONES seems to believe GIMMETHERAIN won’t finish very far, a genuine threat. HAKEEM needs to improve and SOCKEROO will run an improved race. P C ORFFER is determined to close the gap, he said he will give it all on SILVER HERITAGE.
COLOUR MY FATE has run some brave races and he is taken to bag another win. From barrier 1, he should lead easily and will try to make it all. MASTER OF ILLUSION made no impression so far. TOWER OF WISDOM has been in fine form, won’t be far. HUYSSTEEN is a class and distance winner, to be respected. FOOTY GOAL has everything to prove. PRINCE OF PERSIA and ARABIAN AIR are solid each way chances. A lot of good noise around YOUR PACE OR MINE, S.NARANG believes he will frighten the favorite.
NOURBESE is a classy sort, we have not yet seen his full potential. He is constantly improving and has a big margin of progression. P C ORFFER is confident to win on him and makes him his best ride. He will climb the ladder easily. WALL TAG AND PADRE are solid place chances. TRIPPI’S EXPRESS did nothing wrong but each time there’s someone better. MARSHALL FOCH has been a disaster. STREAM AHEAD can finish in the placings. WE LIGHT THE FIRE is not a priority.
A good contest with nothing much separates the runners. COURTROOM MAGIC is rated very highly by his trainer. He is tipped to run a cracker by his connections. The health issues he had are behind him. Beware of CLOUDED HILL, there is a lot of talk going on about him. He might be worth a few pennies. STAR OF ZEUS if he gets a good start. STOCKBRIDGE will be in the mix. DO OR DARE is far from his best form. FREE TO WIN and KALGOORLIE will do well. The outside draw is problematic for SMUTS. KEIKO and JAMES PETER for the place chances.
The last one is tricky. WHY WOULDN’T YEW has a very good but needs to have a decent start. NIKHILS INN last race was disappointing. RED ROCK CANYON and THE HITMAN are not our priorities. ALSSAKHRA is tipped to run a good race. ARNICA MONTANA cannot be written off. SILVER SONG is far from the best form. SECRET CIRCLE is on the up. TIGER’S BOND is very much liked by his connections. They are confident he will run a cracker.
