Professionals voice their opinions on the Vandrevala Foundation Indian Turf Invitation Cup and the Maj. P.K. Mehra Memorial Super Mile Cup.
JAGGI DHARIWAL: My ward Arabian Prince has set the national record for 2400m and should run well.
S.A. SHEHZAD ABBAS: For the Super Mile, Iaepetus, I think he'll be as good as anybody today. For the Invitation Cup, Becket and Jacqueline to beat, in that order, though I would love to blast them out with a very big bomb lit by “Sparks”!
SILVESTRE DE SOUSA: I ride Native Knight — let's hope he runs a big race.
PESI SHROFF: As with any horse that has raced as much as she has, Jacqueline has had some niggling issues but is well and I hope for the best.
NARENDRA LAGAD: Dancing Dynamite for the Super Mile and Jacqueline for the Invitation Cup — I hope my horse (Native Knight) can do something there.
S. PADMANABHAN: Super Mile — Dancing Dynamite — though a surprise packet is Celestial Way who is the highest rated 4-y-o in India today. Becket in the Invitation Cup — Change Of Luck has shown lot of improvement in the last few weeks.
SURAJ NARREDU: In the Super Mile, Dancing Dynamite no doubt has got the first chance but it's an open race. In the Invitation Cup, definitely they all have to beat Jacqueline but Becket has all the ability to reverse the verdict.
S.S. SHAH: Becket from Jacqueline, not a third horse. Becket is a very good horse and the filly had to be stretched to beat him in the Derby
IMTIAZ SAIT: In the Super Mile, my vote goes to Dancing Dynamite to beat Diego Rivera; in the big one, of course I would always favour the ladies! So my choice would be Jacqueline.
HARESH N.MEHTA: Jacqueline is a very good filly but I think Becket will be there too at the finish. Diego Rivera and Dancing Dynamite may fight out the Super Mile race.
RICHARD HUGHES: If all goes well Jacqueline is the one to beat. I fancy Diego Rivera for Super Mile.
M.P.MAHESH: I like Jacqueline first and Becket next. Super Mile looks competitive.
S.NARREDU: I think Becket will win, while Sprint Star may take the other grade I race.
KARTHIK GANAPATHY: Jacqueline may repeat. Sea Ruler and Dancing Dynamite may fight it out in the Super Mile
