From the Horses Mouth - Race form Analysis Guide for Sunday, 23rd December 2018
 
- By Cyrus Naterwalla
 
Race No. 1 :- The Spinoza Plate – Div. II – Class V, 5 Years Old & Over – Distance :- 1200M
 
RARE SILVER :- 6 year old gelding trained by Imtiaz Sait, he has an unconvincing win record having managed to win just once from his 27 starts although he has finished 2nd on 5 occasions, one of those being last time out when a 3 length second to Ridgewood Star over course and distance in the higher class. He comes into this race in good form and is eased in grade now into the lower class. He is usually effective over this sort of trip and in this field and with C.S. Jodha in the saddle, he looks to have strong each way claims if running upto the same level and must be considered.
 
NAME OF THE GAME :-Speedy 6 year old mare who is one of 2 runners for C.Rajendra in this race and appears to be the more fancied of the pair going by Jockey bookings. She has managed to win 2 of her 29 starts and although it has been a while since her last win which came back in September 2017, she seems to have dropped down to a handy mark and showed zest for racing last time out when running a forward race to finish a close 4th to Fire Flame over 1000M just 2 weeks ago. She is expected to build on that performance and will benefit from stronger handling with Neeraj Rawal taking over from M. Ayyar. She usually likes to dominate from the outset when on song and with no other confirmed front runner in the field, she looks a strong contender today.
 
DIWALI LIGHTS :- 7 year old gelding in the care of H. J. Antia, he is a winner of 2 of his 31 starts and showed that he still retains ability by scoring the 2nd of those wins in the recent Pune season with today’s rider S.A. Amit up, to beat more fancied stable mate Bay Of Love over this trip by ¾ length. He has had a lung opener this season when finishing 6th behind Bourbon Princess last time out and was not beaten a long way so that run should put him on course to be a factor here. He is another who looks to have each way claims in this open looking contest and is capable of being involved.
 
TOP WIZARD :-Veteran 6 year old gelding who is one of 2 runners from the Narendra Lagad yard and is another who seems to have slipped to a very workable mark at present. Winner of 2 races from 40 starts till date, he went desperately close on his penultimate run, in Pune where he finished on like a rocket over 1000M, just failing to peg back more fancied stable mate Dance of Fire. He has had a run already this season when finishing 5th to Dusky Siren over this trip and has been working well of late. He looks very well handicapped on the pick of his form and with Hanumant Singh in the saddle, is another who looks poised to strike.
 
RICARDUS :- 5 year old gelding from the S.K. Sunderji yard who is nicely bred but seems to lack consistency having managed to win only once from his 22 starts so far and has mainly struggled since his maiden victory in February over 1400M. He has already had a run this season so should be fit enough and returns to this 6 furlong trip after quite a while, having usually been campaigned over further. Improving 3 ½ kilo claimer M. Ayyar has been booked to ride which puts him at a very low weight and he looks capable of upsetting if in a galloping mood.
SMOKY HAZE :- 5 year old mare trained by Adhirajsingh Jodha who is still a maiden after 18 starts but has come down right to the bottom of the scales as a result but she gave some encouragement last time out in Pune over 1400M when making good late headway to finish runner up to Aquarius. That run looked promising, she should be suited by the long Mumbai straight and Dashrath Singh, who rode her last time out is in the saddle again. She is not guaranteed to reproduce that last effort, but if she can build on it then she appears to have a good chance to finally shed her maiden tag.
 
CONCLUSION :-Very open looking and competitive opener and probably best avoided from a betting standpoint. Rare Silver ran promisingly last time out and has been eased in grade, Name of the Game is capable of making all under Neeraj Rawal and both Top Wizard and Smoky Haze look well handicapped. You should get good value for your choice though
 
Race No. 2 :- The Gulamhusein Essaji Trophy – Class III & IV – Distance :- 1600M
 
TILL END OF TIME :- Well bred 4 year old filly trained by M.K. Jadhav who has run 10 times so far and took her time to come to hand but seemed to have blossomed during the recent Pune season and comes into this bidding for a hattrick after 2 brilliant victories in her last 2 starts. After finishing a close 3rd on her seasonal debut in Pune over 1200M, she went on to finish midfield in the Independence Million but then scored a fluent victory over Valegro over a mile and was visually most impressive last time out when winning in a common canter against Star Comrade and Star Bright and looking to have plenty in hand in spite of the 4 length margin. She has a very stiff 8 kilo penalty to contend with for the win and needs to show that she has trained on into this season in the same sort of form. A. Sandesh who rode her the last twice and is up again today knows her well and her lead up work has been satisfactory so in spite of taking on tougher company today and conceding weight all around, she looks a leading contender and is greatly respected to continue her recent progression.
 
BRONX :- Another well bred and improving type, this one from the in form stable of Nosher Cama, he has been remarkably consistent and progressive since his debut, winning twice and finishing runner up twice in his 4 starts since. He was a stylish winner over Arashi and Makino over 1400M on his penultimate run in Pune and put in an even better performance on his seasonal reappearance here when running a cracker over a mile and making subsequent 2000 Guineas 3rd Sacred Roman pull out all the stops, going down fighting by a nose conceding 7 kilos. That form looks extremely strong, the 4th placed Smasher won decisively day before yesterday and he has a fitness advantage over the filly who is having her first run this season. He looks a very strong contender with P.S. Chouhan in the saddle and probably gets the nod on current form.
 
STAR BRIGHT :-Lightly raced and potentially smart 4 year old filly who is now in the care of Deepesh Narredu and is a winner of 1 of her 5 starts to date. She was a wide margin winner of her maiden race over this trip last season on just her 2nd start and went on to run an impressive 2nd in the Independence Million to Astral Flare but was soundly beaten by Till End of Time on her penultimate run and does not look likely to beat that rival in spite of being better off at the weights today. She put in a very workmanlike performance on her last run when ending up a distant 3rd to Gloriosus over 2000M and now drops back down to this trip. K. Nazil takes over in the saddle today claiming 2 ½ kilos but she needs to find some more improvement now and looks more of a contender for minor honours.
 
AUGUSTUS CAESAR :-Very promising and well bred got abroad colt trained by Altamash Ahmed who appears to be full of potential but is returning from a long lay off and is entitled to need this run after the extended absence. He ran twice last season as a juvenile, going down fighting to Hope and Glory on his debut and duly building on that when scoring an authoritative win over Bushtops and Merlin, both runs over the 7 furlong trip. He has not raced since then so is having his first start in practically 9 months and looks to have it all to do in spite of having a thorough preparation and moving well in a recent Mock Race. His regular saddle partner Neeraj Rawal is in the saddle and on the plus side, he is receiving plenty of weight from the older horses but on the down side, he is taking on two form horses who appear to be at the top of their game. He has the potential to be able to win this but it is a big ask after such a long absence and one feels he may just need the outing today.
 
CONCLUSION :- Extremely fascinating contest in spite of the small field and very hard to pick between Till End of Time, Bronx and Augustus Caesar all of whom look capable of winning this. While the 3 year old is returning from a possible setback and might just need the lung opener, the other two are hard to split. Common sense would probably give the edge to Bronx as he has already had a run this season and his form looks very strong with Sacred Roman going on to place in the 2000 Guineas but the filly left a lasting impression with her smart turn of foot and the ridiculous ease with which she won her last race and if she turns up in the same mood, she could very well complete her hattrick.
 
Race No. 3 :- The Madras Race Club Trophy – Class I & II – Distance :- 1000M
 
ST. ANDREWS :- Classy 5 year old trained by Bezan Chenoy who was a Classic Contender in his 3 year old days and finished a gallant 3rd in the Indian 2000 Guineas and runner up in the Ruia before reverting to shorter distances and acquitting himself well. Winner of 4 of his 17 starts overall, his last win was back in August 2017 which was the last time he contested a handicap and he has been contesting only Group races since, acquitting himself well without winning. He returned from a long absence to run 2 good races in Pune, finishing runner up to Ruffina in the Akkasaheb Maharaj Trophy and then running upto that form again in the Noshir and Dolly Dhunjibhoy Sprint Million, finishing 4th but in a 3 way photo with Governor General and Lincoln. There is no recent trackwork so he will have fitness to prove but he returns to a handicap after a long time and this represents an ease in grade. He looks the class horse in this field and although he is tackling this minimum trip for the first time, is strongly fancied with P. Trevor up and is expected to return to the winners circle.
 
CLYMENE :-Speedy 4 year old filly who is in the care of Faisal Abbas, she is best over this 5 furlong trip and appears to be on the upgrade, having won 4 of her 9 starts so far and has been in good form this season as well. She has run twice already this term, on the first occasion beaten into 3rd by Wise Child who reopposes today with Glyndebourne finishing 4th, 1 ½ lengths behind her and she then went on to finish runner up to Ruffina in the Homi Mehta Sprint Challenge. She looks worse off on the Terms with Glyndebourne on their last run and will need to unlock further improvement if she is to have a say today. She looks fit and well though, Dashrath Singh retains the ride and she is expected to give a good account of herself over her pet trip and could very well have a say in the finish.
 
GLYNDEBOURNE :- Owner mate of Clymene but comes from the stable of Vishal Gaikwad and has done most of her racing over further so she is likely to find this trip to be on the sharp side. Winner of 4 of her 12 starts so far, she did manage to comfortably beat Clymene over this trip in Pune on worse Terms than today but then ran a poor race when upped into this grade on her penultimate run, finishing a poor 6th to Governor General. She warmed up for this race when finishing an unextended 4th behind Clymene on her seasonal reappearance over this trip and is now weighted to reverse that form. NeerajRawal takes over in the saddle today replacing Leigh Roche and she looks a very strong contender and is expected to run a big race today.
 
WILD FIRE :- Tearaway 4 year old grey filly trained by Narendra Lagad, she has won 4 of her 21 starts so far but seems to be found out by the long Mumbai straight and seems to relish the Pune track where she has done all of her winning. She likes to blaze a trail up front and was prominent till the bend on her last run before retiring and finishing behind Clymene. She will be going practically bareback with P.S. Kaviraj claiming 5 kilos in the saddle and is likely to be prominent in the early stages but may just set the race up for the finishers and is yet to score on the Mahalaxmi track which is a negative. Rank outsider.
 
WISE CHILD :-Improving 4 year old gelding from the M.K. Jadhav yard who has been progressing nicely with his racing and was an impressive winner over several of these on his seasonal reappearance albeit in the lower class. Winner of 3 of his 13 starts and having finished runner up on 5 occasions as well, he has a good overall record and has seemed to be on the upgrade of late, winning 2 of his last 3 starts. He finished on late after weaving his way through gaps to beat Clymene and Glyndebourne quite convincingly last time out and seems to have retained his form and fitness. K. Nazil takes over in the saddle from A. Sandesh, claims a valuable 2 ½ kilos and while he is expected to get the better of Clymene again, Glyndebourne is better placed on the scales and could well reverse the places. He comes into this race in fine form though and should try hard to go in again. Respected
 
CONCLUSION :-Although there are plenty of 5 furlong specialists in the field, my selection here is the classy St. Andrews in spite of him conceding weight and tackling this trip for the very first time in his career. He is a Group horse running in a handicap, the long Mumbai straight is expected to suit and his class should help him prevail. Glyndebourne is very well handicapped although she too will find the trip sharp and looks the handicap choice while the improving Wise Child is also feared.
 
Race No. 4 :- The Maharaja JiwajiraoScindia Trophy (Grade 2) – Terms, 3 Years Old & Over – Distance :- 1800M
 
CAPRISCA :- 4 year old gelding trained by Imtiaz Sait, he is the Indian St. Leger winner, the Class horse in the field and looks to be the one that they all have to beat. He finished a gallant 2nd to reopposing stable companion Raees in the RWITC Ltd Gold Cup in Pune over 2000M and warmed up for this race when finishing on late to be runner up to Cambridge last time out in the A.C. Ardeshir Trophy over a mile which should put him spot on for this. He has been working very well since the run, is sure to be suited by the extra furlong and Robbie Downey retains the ride. He conceded 8 kilos to Raees for a neck defeat in Pune and is now only conceding 3 so he is much better placed on the scales. He is likely to start a firm favourite here and also looks hard to beat barring a mishap.
 
RAEES :-Gutsy 5 year old who is a stable mate of Caprisca and after losing his way midway through his career appears to be firmly back on track now. He managed to get the better of Caprisca in Pune but is now worse off at the weights and will need to improve dramatically if he is to confirm the form. He too had a good warm up for this when going down by a whisker to Vulcan over 2000M last time out but is slightly worse off at the weights as per the Terms and hence may struggle to reverse the form over this shorter trip. Winner of 7 of 22 starts overall, he looks likely to make a fist of it with P. Trevor in the saddle, and could make the finish interesting.
 
PHOENIX TIGER :-Top Class 6 year old gelding trained by Dallas Todywalla, he was one of the best milers of his generation, winner of the Indian 2000 Guineas and has a 50% strike rate from his 14 starts till date. He was off the track for over a year after suffering a setback but returned to finish a gutsy 2nd to Your Royal Majesty during the 2017 Pune season. He is again returning from another long absence having last raced in December 2017 so looks likely to need this run after the long absence but is fully capable of being involved on his class. S.A. Amit has been booked to ride, he appears to be well placed on the scales, and if fit and well, could be the main danger to Caprisca. Dark horse who can upset.
 
VULCAN :- Strong galloping 5 year old trained by Adhirajsingh Jodha who has performed creditably so far winning 6 of his 23 starts and has made steady progress up the handicap ranks to reach this level now. Usually enjoying dictating terms from the front and nearly pulling off a stunning upset in Pune in the Idar Gold Trophy, he was ridden off the pace over 2000M last time out and came with a strong run to pip Raees on the post. He is better off at the weights with that rival today and with C.S. Jodha in the saddle, looks set to make a bold bid to repeat.
 
CONCLUSION :-Seemingto slightly lack quality for a Group Race, this seems to be at the mercy of Caprisca, who is the highest rated in this field and warmed up for this with a good 2nd over a mile last time out. He has ticks in all the right boxes and looks hard to beat. In spite of the long absence, Phoenix Tiger is the other Class horse in this field and if he is fit and ready to go, he could prove to be a danger at the weights
 
Race No. 5 :- The Municipal Commissioners Cup – Class IV, Maiden 3 Year Olds – Distance :- 1000M
 
BOMBSHELL :-Once raced Dean’s Kitten gelding from the stable of young Shazaan Shah, he was given an educative run over 1000M in Pune finishing a faraway 6th in a weak maiden field and was withdrawn at the start on her next intended run towards the end of Pune. She is having just her 2nd run so is entitled to improve and seems to be taking on a very weak field. She has been working fairly well in the build up to this race, H. Zeeshan has been booked to ride, replacing Akshay which is a positive and in this company, she looks a strong each way contender and is expected to be involved. The mare has already thrown several progeny with Super Queen and Paradiso both winning 3 races in Bangalore but the others all maidens including full brother Star Lord.
 
RUFFO :- Another once raced gelding, this one from the small yard of Trainer Vinesh but he has a much more interesting pedigree, being a half brother to War Command, who won the F.D. Wadia Trophy and the Mysore 2000 Guineas and finished 3rd in the Poonawalla Million. He too made his debut on the final day of the Pune season but finished way down the field last of the 11 runners behind Hyannis so may not have yet come to hand. He will again be ridden by Akshay, suggesting that he still needs more time and also looks short on fitness but is given a small upset chance in this field on the strength of his excellent bloodlines.
 
FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT :- Another sparingly raced and very interesting 3 year old filly trained by Altamaash Ahmed who is returning after an extended absence but is a highly regarded sort who seems to have a decent level of form. Making her debut over 1200M during the last Mumbai season, she travelled strongly over a long way and went on to finish runner up to Silver Locket in a decent maiden and was thought good enough to travel to Hyderabad for a Group 3 Million race where she came up short and finished 6th but against the likes of Realms of Fantasy, Catalonia and Punjabi Girl who have gone on to win Classics so that form looks very strong here. She is returning to racing after almost a year off the track and her fitness will clearly be a concern but she looks head and shoulders above this lot on what she has done so far. Neeraj Rawal takes the ride and her class should see her through this and she is a leading fancy.
 
SERENARA :-Debutant from the S.K. Sunderji yard with a modest pedigree, she has worked also just modestly and the only reason that she is even given consideration is that the field is extremely weak and she has a good rider booked in the form of C.S. Jodha. She looks likely to need this educative run but could run into a place in this poor company.
 
HIGHLAND EMPRESS :- Maiden 3 year old filly from the yard of Rehanullah Khan, she is quite exposed having had 6 runs so far without success but sets the form standard in this field and is respected on that score. She has managed to place on 3 of her 6 starts so far, her best effort coming on her penultimate run in Pune where she ended up a close 3rd over this trip to Julio Cesaro and Clark Kent. She has already had one run this season finishing 5th to Juno’s Guest with Neeraj Rawal in the saddle and should come on for that run. With all the other runners in the field having one or two question marks about them, she looks the obvious choice and with P.S. Chouhan in the saddle, looks a leading contender to shed her maiden tag
 
CONCLUSION :- While Highland Empress sets the form standard here and looks the most practical choice, it may be worth taking a chance on the potentially classier Fundamental Right who ran in far better company last season and is held in high regard. She is returning from an extended absence so may be understandably rusty but could prove to be too classy for this lot even if not fully fit.
 
Race No. 6 :- The Maseeha Plate – Class IV & V – Distance :- 1400M
 
HARMONY OF THE SEA :- Well bred 4 year old filly trained by Imtiaz Sait, she appears to be a quirky sort and has managed to win 2 of her 11 starts so far but clearly lacks consistency and her wins have been followed by below par efforts on both her subsequent starts so she does not look reliable. She has been well below par in her last 5 starts since scoring her last win on this track in March but has dropped slightly in the weights as a result and has already had a lung opener this season. She has been eased in grade back down to Class IV now and P. Trevor takes over in the saddle for Raghuveer Singh which is a positive. Her recent workouts have been decent and she stands a good chance to bounce back in this company if she runs upto her best.
 
FLEUR DE LYS :-Well bred 3 year old in the same ownership as Harmony of the sea but comes from the stable of S. Waheed and has the scope of make further progress. She has run 4 times till date, winning her maiden over a mile on her penultimate start, getting the better of Golden Hind in a fighting finish over a mile, the pair well clear of the rest, but subsequently ran very poorly on her handicap debut when well fancied over 7 furlongs and finishing in the ruck. She can be forgiven one poor run at this early stage in her career and has been rested and given time to improve and is returning from a 3 month break. There is no track work on record so she might be needing this run but P.S. Chouhan is an encouraging Jockey booking and if looking fit and well in the preliminaries, could very well bounce back.
 
AQUARIUS :-Formerly known as Wild Jack, this 5 year old gelding from the M.K. Jadhav stable remained a maiden for a long time but seems to have recently come to hand and was in rousing form when last seen in Pune. Having run 24 times till date and without success till most recently, he looked like he was coming to hand when finishing a close 2nd to Cray Cray over 1400M a couple of starts ago and then went on to win back to back races the last twice, a wide margin winner on his penultimate run and then taking a penalty in his stride to hold off Gold Medalist and repeat in the lower class last time out. He appears to have maintained his form and fitness over the break judging from his recent workouts and A. Sandesh retains the ride. He has now been upped in grade and is up a further 4 ½ kilos in the weights but seems to have not stopped improving just yet and should make a bold bid to complete the hattrick.
 
MY PRECIOUS :- Well bred and enigmatic 4 year old filly trained by Karthik G. she had been tried over a variety of trips without success and was a 14 race maiden but finally broke the shackles last time out over course and distance, making all the running and kicking on stubbornly to deny the odds on favourite Kingsman and score an overdue maiden success. She has a 5 kilo penalty to contend with for the win but should gain some much needed confidence from it and may just be coming to hand now. Bhawani Singh who rode her last time out keeps the ride, she is likely to try similar tactics again and provided that run was not a flash in the pan, she could very well be capable of repeating.
 
NOTTING HILL :- Improving 3 year old maiden trained by S.K. Sunderji, he has run 6 times so far without success but seemed to be quite consistent during his 4 runs in Pune and finished 2nd on 2 occasions, showing a decent level of form. He finished runner up to Merlot over 1400M on his 2nd run of the Pune campaign which looks good form now and then went on to chase home Improvisso dropped to 1200M with Flaming Martini back in 3rd who has gone on to strengthen that form as well. He had a lung opener already this season when finishing 4th to Juno’s Guest over 1200M and should appreciate the additional furlong. C.S. Jodha replaces P. Trevor in the saddle today, he looks to be working quite well and seems to have a good chance to shed his maiden tag today.
 
SCRATCHMYBACK :- Untried and unexposed 3 year old gelding with a nice pedigree trained by Rehanullah Khan he has had 4 runs so far and showed glimpses of ability on his penultimate run over 1200M when making casual progress to finish up 5th to Kilkarry Bridge over 1200M. He was quietly fancied upped to a mile last time out but planted in the gates and took no part in the contest. He has been well prepared since then, jumped out well in a recent Mock Race and looks a potentially interesting sort. J. Chinoy takes the ride today and he looks a dark horse who can upset.
 
JIGAR :- Maiden 4 year old filly trained by Faisal Abbas, she has run a couple of suggestive races so far without winning and looks likely to be better than her current mark. Her first suggestive run came towards the end of the last Mumbai season over 1200M where she finished on to be a close 3rd to Collegium and she again finished 3rd on her first start on Pune over 1000M when behind Malavika and Abraxas. She was sent off favourite next time out over 1400M with A. Sandesh up but was no match for Aquarius, finishing a faraway 5th. She was withdrawn on her next intended start and now reappears over this trip with Amyn Merchant in the saddle. She is likely to need this lung opener but is another potentially well treated sort and could spring a surprise if in a galloping mood.
 
CONCLUSION :-Notting Hill looks to have some decent form to his name and with the benefit of the run this season, is selected to get off the mark today. My Precious could be a danger if reproducing her front running effort of last time while Aquarius and Harmonyoftheseaare also respected
 
Race No. 7 :- The Spinoza Plate – Div. I – Class V, 5 Years Old & Over – Distance :- 1200M
 
MAKE IT SHINE :-Trained by Vijay Kasbekar and formerly known as Bella Traviata, this 7 year old is a veteran of 35 races and has won on 3 previous occasions in the past. He had been running very consistently during the last Mumbai season and capped it off with a decisive success on his last run of the season, just holding off Royal Mews and Lorraine to win narrowly. He has been out of form in his last 5 starts, including a lung opener earlier in the season, but after being ridden by S.G. Prasad in his last several starts, has a positive jockey switch with K. Nazil taking over in the saddle. He looks to have a decent chance if running upto his old form and in this older horses contest, merits each way consideration.
 
ROYSTON ROCK :- 5 year old mare trained and owned by Mansoor Shah, she seems to have come to hand late in her career and was very consistently improving in her last few starts, culminating in a maiden victory over this trip last time out, convincingly beating Bay of Love and Silver Cap over this trip. She has a statutory 6 kilo penalty to contend with which is almost totally offset by her rider’s 5 kilo claim and she looks open to further progress. The switch from H. Zeeshan to N.B. Kuldeep is not exactly a positive but she looks to have maintained her form and fitness and should be capable of repeating in the same grade.
 
GOOD THING :-5 year old mare owned and trained by C. Rajendra who has run 22 times so far and appears to have been rediscovering her form in her last couple of starts. She has finished 3rd in her last 2 attempts, both over 1000M, ending a close 3rd to Dance of Fire and Top Wizard on her penultimate run in Pune and following that up with a decent 3rd to Bonafide last time out. The additional furlong should not prove to be a bother, she seems in good heart at present and improving 5 kilo claimer P.S. Kaviraj has been booked to ride today. She is likely to give it a good go again today and looks an each way player.
 
ROYAL ACE :-5 year old gelding trained by Faisal Abbas who has flattered to deceive on a couple of occasions in the past and losing run has now stretched to 19 which is frustrating. He made a promising start to the season when finishing 3rd to Ridgewood Star over this trip and has now been eased in grade and gets a positive Jockey switch with Dashrath Singh replacing Amyn Merchant in the saddle. He has been working well for some time now and if building on that effort may finally be able to get the monkey off his back.
 
GOLDEN HORDE :- Sparingly raced 5 year old gelding who is trained by Bezan Chenoy and has won 1 of his 15 starts so far but looked to be on the way back to form last time out when finishing on pleasingly to be runner up to Flying Visit in the higher class and is another who has been eased in grade. He caught the eye in the paddock on that occasion and with Santosh G taking over in the saddle from N.B. Kuldeep, is another who looks to have a good each way chance and is respected.
 
BAY OF LOVE :-Aged 8 year old gelding in the care of H. J. Antia who has run 42 times so far but still retains the zest for racing and was very consistent throughout the Pune season, placing 4 races in a row, finishing runner up thrice and 3rd on 1 occasion. He had a lung opener here to get him back to fitness and with M. Ayyar in the saddle today, merits each way consideration.
 
 
CONCLUSION :-A messy finale and probably best left alone just like the opener but prices should be attractive. Golden Horde is put forward as a tentative selection as he caught the eye in the paddock and finished on well to be 2nd. Royal Ace with Dashrath Singh up also looks a potential danger along with a host of others.
