Verdict

Bangalore Diamond had a head to spare over MISS BELLA here three weeks ago but the runner-up, who has been lightly raced, can take her revenge on slightly better terms and gain her first success. Light Zabeel has never raced over a trip as short as this and may find a few too quick but Thats A Fret is always dangerous in these events and is well handicapped despite a big weight. The veteran Richelieu can't be discounted as he has been going well from slightly higher marks but Sweet Annathea has been raised 9lb for gaining the first victory of her career here last week.
