1. CUT DIAMOND ran weak as a favorite and could not accelerate in the straight, has the rider repeating. ZAAGROS has been given an easy run and will run better with the rookie now. CLASSY DANCER has a good rider for a low grade trainer, has worked well. ANNABETH was tardy bat gates as a favourite, may run well.
2. WINDSOR QUEEN who lost as a favourite on opening day may bounce back with the rookie. WINDS OF CHANGE ran on to finish in places, may be tried. HIGHWAY EXPRESS lost to a horse who won again , has a chance if she hits the front.ZOE has a good rider , was beaten close home. SUNSHINE HEART may exploit the low weights with a forward run.
HIGHWAY EXPRESS-WINDS OF CHANGE-ZOE.
3. CAPT ABDON is tracking well and has speedy dam, had run 2nd to speedy GREEK GOD earlier.PEPITO had led in and then flopped as a favourite, has worked fine. GOLDEN LILLY has worked well, has been given a run. OCEAN DREAM is very nicely bred , the trainer is subdued this season. SIMPLY SWEET may need this run.
PEPITO-OCEAN DREAM-GOLDEN LILLY.
4. Simple study of the previous races and the classic hopeful QUASAR stands tall here, has worked nicely and should beat TATIANA once again.
5. REMEBER ME has raced with better types, may be tried , looks a bit jaded in works. HONEST PLEASURE ran well enough last time to merit consideration here. SUPERLICIOUS faces a tough group now. CARUSO ran a good 2nd and is on the up. ADAM has impressed a lot in both wins, has bloodlines to progress.
6. DESERT WINGS has worked pleasingly, shorter trip may not suit. ZEDA is a speedy one , more of a 1000m type. DIVINE SOLITAIRE has been given an easy run. MINE FOREVER is catching the eye with good tracks, has low weights. NEPTUNE’S OCEAN has the handicap to upset, rookie has a chance on this speedy one.
NEPTUNE’S OCEAN-MINE FOREVER-DESERT WINGS.
7. STARRY EYES and CIRCLE OF BLISS are the class horses here, the former has been given a questionable run which was way below par in last race, the later has the stigma of being winner of a solitary race. VICTORIA FALLS at bottom weight should be looking to give a fight to the duo.
STARRY EYES-CIRCLE OF BLISS.
8. DYNA who was shinning in works ran a weak race as a favourite, the horse needs to be considered again as the trainer is known for going soft when favoured by bookies. STILETTO has her work cut out despite the rider repeating, may place. TARGETMASTER will like the step up in distance, has pleased in tracks. FLASH DRIVE won well and may be tried again. AFFIRMATION has run close in a sprint, may place again.
9. APACHE could not be controlled by the rider when fancied last time, may be considered for the bloodlines and the stables. ETERNAL ROYALTY was done in by a missed jump, has good bloodlines . EGYPTIANA will be more suitable for shortest sprints, has been extended in works. SWEET AS HONEY is from a speedy dam, has impressed in both runs. TROPPA BELLA should show out with this rider.
SWEET AS HONEY-EGYPTIANA-TROPPA BELLA.
10. STARSONBOARD showed good acceleration to win easily and looks to repeat.BETHLEHEM has tracked well. POLAR ZONE had led up well and has an outside chance. ANCIENT WORLD needs to amend last failure at Mumbai when the weak rider dropped the whip.
ANCIENT WORLD-STARSONBOARD-POLAR ZONE.

1. A group of non winners run for the mile with BETHPAGE and PORTA BANUS as the main contenders as both have worked well and have decent bloodlines for the trip. The later is better placed on scales and excelled in latest track. ADAM’S WING should utilise the allowance and compete well. ITS HIGH TIME has low weights and last run was reasonable.
2. AZADEGAN is from a weak sire and has no works.BORN TO WIN was running behind the disputing pair of leaders in last race, has shown speedy tracks. FLYNN ran green in a much better group and has a chance here. REMARKABLES who had tracked nicely was given an initiating run, will run much better now.
BORN TO WIN- FLYNN-REMARKABLES.
3. GRENADINE won well last time but gets a step up in distance and weight, may not sustain. DIXIE DELIGHT will fancy the chances here, last effort was an improved one. FLEETWOOD MAC ran below par in last run and may improve on that effort, can stay the trip. ARCHIMEDES over this trip appears to be a desperate move by the trainer. OPEN OFFER is ordinarily bred but has low weights and age on side.
FLEETWOOD MAC-DIXIE DELIGHT-GRENADINE.
4. The ordinarily bred SIR SONG is showing speed in works, has weight against. SPEAR OF TRIUM has come up in last run, should be fighting out now, has a wide draw. STORMYDAY was a respectable 2nd who will run well again. GOOD MEMORY has worked well, last run was an improvement. DARK WILLIAM is down in scales and may upset.
SPEAR OF TRIUM-STORMYDAY-GOOD MEMORY.
5. SOOTHSAYER from the speedy dam looks to repeat, is pleasing in works. IN TIME has always run sincerely, the trainer owned horse is picking up stake money . JEWEL ran pathetically last time, must have been packed from stables, let us see what improvement is there now. PRETTY HOT has the handicap and last track was fast, may win if handled well. STRIGHT SIX has low weights and is well tracked.
PRETTY HOT-SOOTHSAYER-IN TIME.
6. QUIZICAL won very well and is tracking as a good type, may repeat. WIKI WIKI has been tracked, a big indication from this trainer who doesn’t work his horses openly, HORSE WAS A FRONT RUNNER LAST TIME. CHA CHA CHA from a top sire is working nicely, was beaten by a better SOOTHSAYER. BLUE HORIZONS had lost on the post, has been scrubbed in works and has a rookie at low weights, may go all the way.
CHA CHA CHA-QUIZICAL-WIKI WIKI.
7. MARIINSKY has been nicely prepared and impressed in mocks but she is conceding lots of weight and is not well placed vis a vis DANCING PRANCES who won well and may repeat. The danger to the pair eminates from ROSIE SUNSHINE who is speedy and is looking very forward in tracks, runs at low weights, compares well on the Sprinters cup run. VICTORIOUS MARCH may speed up , has an outside chance.
ROSIE SUNSHINE-DANCING PRANCES.
8. CHASE THE ACE showed out in gates, has a work jockey, may be tried. LORD JIM has impressed a lot in mock where top class horses were running easy and he finished from off the pace, trainer is known for producing winners in first outing itself. FRANKANELLA has run well in both outings and is working nicely, experience of racing may favour her. MIDNIGHT DANCER is from a good sire and is looking fit.
LORD JIM-FRANKANELLA- CHASE THE ACE.
9. CONSTANTINE was beaten by a speedy SHANIA and should like the added yards. PAURUS is a useful one from a small time trainer, has worked impressively. LHOTSE got beaten by a long odds horse, may be the rider was too ordinary, runs in tough company now. REPLICA is showing out in works. UKULELE named after the famous musical band is much improved, should run well.
10. A tough one to end the days proceedings as there are many hopefuls. THE BIG BULL is working for long but looks out handicapped . HAUNTING MOMENTS ran below level, is working fit. RULE DOWN UNDER goes over extra trip, may not suit, similar is the case of WESTPHALIA who has penalty against repeat. HAWKER is due for a win and is tracking well. MALKIA is down in scales and may upset, has been prepared. SPEED KING has been given easy runs in Bangalore, watch now. STRAWBERRY CRUSH has been heavily penalised for last win, is working impressively, finished on nicely in mocks.

1. The 3 year lot is way backwards and I don’t expect much from this bunch.PRINCE OF SYRIA has been given a run, she has been plagued with set backs, may run true now. The one who is catching the eye with speedy works is BORN FOR PASSION, had won with this rider before. The one to trouble is the oldie QUEEN’S CRUISE who is a versatile one and is at right scales.CATWALK QUEEN who was given gates may run for money.
BORN FOR PASSION-QUEEN’S CRUISE-CATWALK QUEEN.
2. Local horse GUAPO who won well is tracking regularly and should be doing well in the suspect field. BROWNIE is a miler but was outpaced in last run. MY LAW who has not won for long and has done well in last outing may go all the way at low weights.SEA RUNNER should place now, was easy all the way last time.
MY LAW-BROWNIE-SEA RUNNER.
3. HECTOR who is showing fast tracks is likely to give hopes to the breeder cum owner of the useless sire as the field is simply too poor for competition. However I would go with INTERACTIVE who has been tracked by this enigma of a trainer called LOKANATH, he prepares his wards away from prying eyes of reporters. THRILLSEEKER and GREEN EMERALD may hope to place.
4. BANDITO who won both starts last season is out handicapped now. TUSKER who has pleased in gates is at a good handicap to score. ABBAS DREAMS is coming to form, may do well. The youngster DIVINE LOVE looks for hat trick, last win was laboured and may not be able to shake off the penalty. TERI ADAH has low weights and a good rider. ROBINHOOD PANDEY is the dark un , has been kept back on purpose.
TUSKER-TERI ADAH-DIVINE LOVE.
5. INVINCIBLE PRINCE looks good on comparison, is better placed than RIDGEWAY who may appear to have a better handicap due to last win. The former has an ordinary jockey and has been given one light work. The later is in form. Of the local lot DUMA is in rousing form and is on the up.
6. The local undefeated hero FINK faces a strong challenge in the million since he is more of a sprinter type who goes over extra furlong and concedes crucial weight. BOOKER JONES , the winner of two should put up a good fight, again he is from a pure sprinting mare. DEL RUSSO is the horse who has been prepared for the day and belongs to a man obsessive about winning big races, no matter his costly purchases keep biting the dust and profiting thee bookies in class races, the sire is an international hit. SUPER STRONG impressed a lot in last comfortable win and is on the up.
DEL RUSSO-FINK-SUPER STRONG.
7. ALL PROOF goes over suitable distance now and has a chance.ACE EMPRESS JESSIE is down in scales and tracking fine. MANTA RAY has been given runs, watch for support as he has been waited with. MOTIVATION looks to be a better one from this weak sire, has tracked nicely and goes with a top rider. SIZIE OH won warding off, may fight out. SEVEN OF HEARTS from a lower grade trainer may run for places.
MANTA RAY-ALL PROOF-MOTIVATION.
8. SHAKA ZULU lacks the finish to mpull it off. COOL APPROACH is down in scales and has a rider for try now, has been tracked after long. NOBLE REWARD was late to arrive in last race , has a decent chance here. DEEP BLUE SEA may place on rider effort.
COOL APPROACH-SHAKA ZULU-NOBLE REWARD.
Posted by Sarat Sharma at 12:26 AM
1. From the local bunch only BELLE ETOILE may be interested to run genuinely as the horse has won at thois level before and is down in scales. KIMORA has a good rider but is negatively placed against OUR COMMANDER. The later has been given tracks and may be tested by the good rider, horse is zero so far. MISTER GREY goes over ideal trip now and should be improving on last run. LA LANTERN has been given gates, looks fit.
MISTER GREY-OUR COMMANDER-KIMORA.
2. Oldie BLUE STAR showed inclination to race after a long time in his last run, has a useful jockey in a raw field to exploit. WHIMSICAL has been given non bothered runs and appears to have been targeted for this season, has nothing to beat actually. EMANCIPATION may be considered with the weak rider to try for placing. Youngster CARDIFF CITY has been well tracked and may run well.
3. Should be contested between FOREST TERN and STAR KINGDOM . The former has not been exposed much, has speedy bloodlines and last run was a fair effort. The later is a got abroad who looks ordinary but has been tracked very regularly with better ones in the stables. NATURAL NINE was finishing on well in last run under a weak rider, may place again. Speedy FIRE STORM may run a forward race, lacks preparation.
FOREST TERN-STAR KINGDOM-NATURAL NINE.
4. The game old horse TALISKER has a decent chance here if ridden well by the rookie. SECRET MISSILE has shown sparkle in tracks. VIOLENT STORM has good form and tracked impressively. GRAND APPLAUSE is a good type who was leading till beaten in last run, has a scope at low weights but I wouldn’t bet if he is favoured by the bookies as the trainer is famous for taking dives.
GRAND APPLAUSE-TALISKER-VIOLENT STORM.
5. ACE BUCEPHALUS for some reason was slow off when well backed, looks at a good handicap to win if he jumps well. PURSUIT OF FAME showed lots of improvement in last 2nd and will look forward to win now. Local challenge should emanate from SPINNING CHAKRAM who has a good rider and has form.
ACE BUCEPHALUS-PURSUIT OF FAME.
6. SOLITAIRE ROYALE has penalty to beat and does not compare well. WILL STAR and ICELANDER have run real close and both are looking fit in tracks and will fight out. AMAZING REDD is a game horse who has been so close to winning on number of occasions and now has a top rider. But the shock may come from speedy VIRAT who has been waited with for long.
7. LADS ABILITY impressed in gates, was heavily backed in last season but just fell short, has a chance with this rider. ESOTERICAL has a heavy penalty.ALL FOR CASH is down in scales and the shady trainer may go for the kill. DANCE OF A GENERAL has been working regularly and has not won for long. STRIVE AND SERVE had a beneficial outing, may do well now.
LADS ABILITY-ALL FOR CASH-STRIVE AND SERVE.
8. WOODBERG was beaten by a horse who was waited with, has good form. MANDARIN is a well bred gone waste with the dwindling stables, may run well. ZAGATO may be backed now as last run was useful and he has been tracked.

1. An open race of mediocre breds with hardly any edge to any of the participants. MASTER VANPERISE is nicely prepared and has a chance, the dam was a speedy one and tracks are encouraging. APPLE BLOSSOM has been nicely worked and looks in better fitness. BLUE HORSE has worked nicely but is from a useless sire. A DATE WITH YOU may be considered for the try rider.
MASTER VANPERISE-A DATE WITH YOU.
2. GOLDEN has worked nicely and looks to be in forward condition. SUN FLAG is looking very forward in tracks, was ridden by weak jockeys last season when backed. The speedy MISS VENUS looks off colour in works, may need more time. TRUSTED MAN is being scrubbed in works, has a chance.
TRUSTED MAN- GOLDEN- SUN FLAG.
3. SEVEN EIGHT SIX is down in scales and class, looks fit. MISS CINDRELLA is pleasing in works, had come close to winning a few times last season. BLUE STEEL has been very regularly tracked, may need some more distance for ideal finish. MISS JULIA is showing good speed in morning works.
MISS CINDRELLA-BLUE STEEL-SEVEN EIGHT SIX.
4. MASTER FADERER has come down in class, ran below expectations in last season, watch now as he is working well. QUEENS TOUCH is another one down a lot in scales who is looking fit in tracks. DAZZLING WAVE is promising in tracks and has done well last season.
MASTER FADERER-DAZZLING WAVE.
5. SHES SWEET failed in western India, has been working fine here. SANG BLEU is a speedy one who is working impressively. BHITSKI has been a useful one and the trainer has prepared this one for the day, has a decent chance. SWEET GIRL looks to be in forward condition and low weights are in favour.
SANG BLEU- BHITSKI-SHES SWEET.
6. BLACK N PINK has been tracking impressively, may run well. MISS FERRARI is a jinxed one, ran so close to winning a number of times last season. JUST GOLD has worked fine, win in maidens run was an exciting one. MISS FOX showed good speed in winning at fag end of season, steps up in class.
JUST GOLD-MISS FERRARI-BLACK N PINK.
DAYS BEST=========MASTER FADERER
