MURCILAGO FOR FEATURE PLUM RACE

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


MYSORE RACES.

1. SHADES OF SCARLET and PENALTY KICK are both of same level with reasonable form, which one will be tried is a difficult problem, the former impressed in tracks. TIME MATTERS who was a close 2nd is working nicely. PROST has a worthwhile rider repeating, has not won for long, has handicap in favour. ARC ANGEL was kept handy in last run, rider repeats.

PROST-SHADES OF SCARLET-TIME MATTERS.

2. LAGOONA has been backwards so far, had won a maiden’s race last year, latest track is encouraging. PRINCE OF SYRIA has not raced for a long time, has run well in both outings last year but looks out of form now. ARCHER had finished well in REAL POTENTIAL’S race but when backed by public for place ran way behind, may do well again. MAGNETIC POWER is coming to form, has worked impressively.

LAGOONA-MAGNETIC POWER-ARCHER.

3. SPINNING CHAKRAM was beaten as a surprise by a younger horse, today he has a much better rider and has a field of older horses to beat. DEMANDING FORMAT was finishing nicely last time and can get the added distance. YAMAS can stay, has weak form.

SPINNING CHAKRAM-DEMANDING FORMAT.

4. GRAND SUCCESS has raced with better ones, has tracked fine but jockey is weak. SUNNY SEVEN may run well, was kept easy in only run. SEA RUNNER impressed in the last win and will look to repeat. SECOND LADY is one paced and has limitations, tracks are impressive and horse is down in scales .CATERINA has come down from class 3, can win any day now.

CATERINA-SEA RUNNER-SECOND LADY.


5. The younger horses have lower weights and are on the up and should be contesting this one. TERI ADAH was a runaway winner who should be favorite now, has maintained form in works. RISING ROMEO has always played up in gates, he is the one in top fettle in morning works. PAMUSHANA is nicely bred but gets a weak rider who surprisingly is picking up good rides, our Delhi trainers think he is no good. PRECEPT is the oldie who has good early speed and is in form.

TERI ADAH-RISING ROMEO-PRECEPT.

6. The one who has weight advantage today is TOUCH OF ROMANCE, she had finished on nicely last time and is working fine. The horse who impressed much in last run was YOUNG GALLANT who carried the raw rookie all the way with ease. The one who has got out of the bad habit at gates is AYMAN , he is bound to run better today, has won at this level with this rider before. And off course my horse to beat all as an upset is GAYLE STORM who has not raced for long but has the looks of a winner at good odds.

GAYLE STORM-TOUCH OF ROMANCE-AYMAN.

7. FINK would be the obvious choice of most as the unbeaten horse is in tremendous form. The one who is nicely placed to trouble the favorite is RISING RANI as she goes at better weight advantage than in winters when she ran 2 nd to the first named.PRECIOUS REPLICA who had placed 3rd in that race has improved much this summer. Now have a look at MURCILAGO and I am tempted to tip him for the days event as he is sitting at low weights vis a vis the first named who had beaten him in a maiden’s race, and the rider gives added edge.The breeding is also suggestive of a miler and that makes it all the more in favor of the lower weights.

MURCILAGO-RISING RANI-FINK.

8. RULE FOREVER is a failed favorite who works well but runs ordinary, has a weak rider. ICE SKATER has a rider who can do well, horse needs hard riding. ROBINHOOD PANDEY is quite consistent and gets a allowance rider who has potential. ACE PRINCESS is a front runner with low weights and a try jockey.

ACE PRINCESS-ICE SKATER-RULE FOREVER.

9. ESOTERICAL is the horse who refuses to come to form despite all tactics of the trainer, has weights against performance. TIME TO TIME was a suggestive runner who is tracking well. NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE was given a very indifferent ride, has scope to run well. STYLE OF SIGNATURE who was a good 2nd has a useful handicap and distance suits.

STYLE OF SIGNATURE-TIME TO TIME-NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE.

BOLD MAJESTY FOR SUMMER MILLION

Sunday, July 27, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1. APPY’S PRIDE has worrying weights, has placed a few times and goes with a try rider. SUMMER GOLD is catching the eye with smart works and looks like a gamble horse for the leading trainer with the striking rider. EMANCIPATION from the low grade trainer has been worked, this is a big indication, may get involved as she has won with this rider at this level before. QUARTER CASK is showing improvement in tracks. YOU'RE A STAR is still a maiden, may place at low weights under the good rider.

SUMMER GOLD-EMANCIPATION-YOU’RE A STAR.

2. OUR LITTLE DRAGON who has been placing has a chance here but he is still a amiden after 7 runs and belongs to a trainer not known to win in maiden’s races. GOOD FRUIT ran a bad race when backed heavily , looks unreliable with a faulty action. GALWAY GIRL tracked very impressively prior to last race but was not sighted anywhere under a try rider. So the field may be at the mercy of the daughter of sires of sires ; SUPER QUEEN who has been nicely prepared.

SUPER QUEEN-OUR LITTLE DRAGON-GOOD FRUIT.

3. KING JULIEN who has not raced this season has a handicap chance, impressed a lot in gates.COOL HAND was a fine winner who goes with a rookie to cover for the penalty, had earlier failed as a favorite with a weaker rider. RESURGENT was a front running winner who beat a weaker lot, looks much improved. VISTABELLA has been tracking very regularly but lacks a run, should be the one to watch in the ring. AMAZON BAY has slid down with runs and now goes at low weights, may upset.

AMAZON BAY- KING JULIEN –COOL HAND.

4. The two off springs of classic sire MULTIDIMENSIONAL should be prime contenders here, on count of breeding BOLD MAJESTY towers over GODSPEED , whereas performance wise nothing much can separate the two.In the Derby B MAJESTY was a keen runner till the stable mate came up to go away. Another well bred TORCH BEARER has come to hand a bit late and is shining in works, last win was very impressive. The one who has pleased in runs is THE GENERAL who can upset.

BOLD MAJESTY-GODSPEED-TORCH BEARER.

5. In the absence of usual indicators it is difficult to say about the fitness level of FIELD MARSHAL and SOUTHERN EMPEROR, both have not been seen by track reporters in months. RIDGEWAY has a good chance based on the last good finish but he is basically a miler. INQUISITION who is tracking very well may be considered over this distance which is suitable to his style of running. LAD STAR is bound to bring the field into the view, has penalty to beat.

INQUISITION-RIDGEWAY-LAD STAR.

6. SCENIC BLAST is a speedy one who has been given runs, can go all the way with this rider who won on this one in good style in winters. The one who is working fast is WIND AND FLIGHT, the horse has changed stables, owner has left his wards at the mercy of trainers , this one may be going for a serious run. BALLANTOY who moves to a new trainer has been coming down in scales, may run well at this handicap. SANS FRONTIERS is an odd one, he beat a highly competitive field of youngsters last year at lucrative odds and then flopped when backed heavily, has tracked well.

SCENIC BLAST-WIND AND FLIGHT-SANS FRONTIERS.

7. VIVID IMPRESSION and SAKCHI won their last starts impressively and will be looking forward to do well again but two factors are against, one is the added distance and second they are conceding weight. The one who stands out on breeding and some smart works now is REPUBLICAN STAR, watch for backing as the owner is known to go negative on public fancies quite often. PASSING FULCRUM appears to be bullish and is yet to come to hand. ARZIKI is due to run well soon.

REPUBLICAN STAR-VIVID IMPRESSION-ARZIKI.

FATAL ATTRACTION FOR SQUANDERER TROPHY

Saturday, July 26, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1. Trainer Caddy plans for the kill and waits for long to get the right race for launching his horses mostly in sprints and has been very successful in doing so. SUMMER SKY has not been pressurized so far in 3 outings and has now been tracked and fed, should be running a forward race, breeding is mediocre. The one who is meriting attention lately is the son of the trainer Warren , and since he is gaining in confidence with each win, the Narredu family has a challenger for Yash, THEJAGUAR should be the one to beat, alas he has a short fuse but the handicap is in favor, may last out. YOU’RE SCINTILLATING is bound to be backed with the good rider at low weights, horse is coming up well in works. BIG COPPER PENNY from a weak stable may also pitch in, has won a sprint in winters.

THEJAGUAR-SUMMER SKY-YOU’RE SCINTILLATING.

2. FATAL ATTRACTION who is a decent got abroad had run well in Mumbai and is looking fluent in works and should be the favorite over this distance. SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT has a fair pedigree, the half sister to CARPE DIEM had run an encouraging race and has services of the best rider. SAGRADA has been tracking well to improve upon last run. The trainer appears to be taking his time with the well bred STARRY MOMENT, full brother to AMBITIOUS REWARD, may improve upon last bad run.

FATAL ATTRACTION-SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT-SAGRADA.

3. JOLIE is a speedy one with a try rookie, last run was easy. COLOUR OF GOLD won authoritatively and has been well penalised, retains form in works. MANTRA was not a serious tryer last time, has sparkled in works. VIGOROUS ran a weak race, gets a strong rider now. CHERRY HINTON has a work jockey after a try run, negative tactics of the trainer.

MANTRA-COLOUR OF GOLD-JOLIE.

4. MYSTIC MUSIC who is on the up has a tough job at this handicap, retains form though with some fine tracks. SALT OF THE EARTH is speedy in tracks. GLITTERING won well but has stepped into tough company. SCHIOVANE ran much below par in Fillies Trials, looks fit. ALERIO won warding off, has a fighting chance again.

ALERIO-SCHIOVANE-GLITTERING.

5. ARROGANT APPROACH could not match up with an aged horse in last run while conceding weight, has trained on to be in the fight once again. AMAZING REDD has been in forward form but why this distance? MADDOX has come down by a load and this unpredictable one can be the up setter of the day. SHAKA ZULU who showed improvement with a belated finish in last run has switched over to a new stable from a lazy trainer’s yard.

MADDOX-ARROGANT APPROACH-SHAKA ZULU.

6. ANECDOTE is well bred for sprints but last win was a stretching one, may be favored to win with the striking rookie. Ignore ANDINA and EVALINA here, both are ordinary. FRUIT PRINCE is from a scheming trainer , has been kept away from the rush in both the runs, can easily beat this lot on a sincere try, he had beaten TEMUJIN who easily beat ANECDOTE in winters. OYE COME VA is yet to come to hand. MYSTIC SHADOW is pleasing in works and has low weights.

FRUIT PRINCE-ANECDOTE-MYSTICAL SHADOW.

7. Gowda is a pathetic trainer and with poor record keeps getting horses to train. MICKY MOUSE was unnecessarily touted as a good thing and sunk in with out a fight last time, now he pitches in the badly managed BEAUTY IS TRUTH also, both have little chance on handicap. Bottom weighted SANTA ANA who was covering yards in last 200 metres of last race is the one who should get the mile. AZETIC STAR is more of a sprinter and an unreliable one. STIMULATE and ARCTIC ATTRACTION have attracted sizeable penalty for last runaway wins, the later had beaten SANTA ANA in winters and will look to do so again.

SANTA ANA-ARTIC ATTRACTION-MICKY MOUSE.

PEPITO FOR AMOROUS KNIGHT TROPHY

Friday, July 25, 2014


PUNE RACES.

1. The two youngsters need to find their feet first, WITHOUT FEAR is a better bred who is from a speedy mare but has a raw rookie. ANNABETH has raced against better ones and may do well in this open field. GLORIOUS CROWN has been tracked and gets a try rider, is down in scales. PUNE WARRIORS from a very low rated trainer has been given gates, may get to run for money.

GLORIOUS CROWN-ANNABETH-WITHOUT FEAR.

2. HALLE is down a lot in scales and is working nicely, may upset. TRANCE has a sincere rider and is looking fit, the trainer remains an enigma, has spoiled many such horses.WINGS OF GLORY impressed in gates, may run well. ORIENTAL ROCKY is getting into shape. SHYGIRL has a handicap chance but I am convinced after opening days races that the rider is favoring the bookies.

HALLE-TRANCE-SHYGIRL.

3. CUT DIAMOND belongs to a trainer who has been a low performer in last couple of seasons, this horse was given a loosing ride when hotly bet upon in Mumbai last time, has scales in favor. CAESARINA who raced to finish on well in the same race has a keen rookie. SUNSHINE HEART is a speedy one who goes with a fresh rookie. LIGHT OF ARABIA can run a forward race.

CUT DIAMOND-SUNSHINE HEART-CAESARINA.

4. QUEEN is being worked regularly. ZANTHOS still searches for maiden win, has an outside chance. BRAVE FIGHTER has been at this level in last few runs, gets a good rider. CASINO JACK has worked fine, rider is useful, may run well. DOUBLE O QUITS has a weak rider, may place. SAMAY BALWAN has been given easy runs to get scales down, goes with a try rider. MAHIMA is at low weights and has been kept out of scuffle for a long time, should be in firing line today, may upset in this uncertain field.

MAHIMA-SAMAY BALWAN-ZANTHOS.

5. PEPITO has impressed in his races at Mumbai and will be running well. SPADES who was backed heavily last time ran pathetically, has tracked fine now. ATHENS has run over distanaces in better company and should be the prime racer here, looks well in works. SIMPLY DIVINE has a work jockey, runs have been encouraging.

PEPITO-ATHENS-SPADES.

6. The four year olds are a speedy lot with INVINCIBLE having a definite edge on comparison , but what can be said about the rider, will he perform or not? , the horse is catching the eye with smart works. INTESAR has shown lots of speed when tried and she goes at low weights. On pure handicap CELSIUS is the one to trouble all, has a rookie to hit the front with.

INVINCIBLE-INTESAR-BRINDABAN.

7. ROYAL PASSION is working well but concedes lots of weight. ZENOFIC had a useful winter and her 2nd to TIGER TOPS should be factored in . MERCHANT OF VENICE has run in good company and now goes at low weights. The one to upset is nicely renamed DHANYAVAAD who has been given runs for long by work boys and is now looking keen from tracks.

DHANYAVAAD-ZENOFIC-MERCHANT OF VENICE.

8. ICE GATE is a speedy one who has won at this level last year. OPEN OFFER has been working fine and should improve upon Mumbai efforts. SEVEN SEAS may run well with this rider for the new trainer of the horse. LEONITE from a good mare has not raced since a bad maiden attempt, should have benefited from the rest and training.

ICE GATE-OPEN OFFER-SEVEN SEAS.
9. GREAT EXPECTATIONS from an ordinary sire had won his last race in style with a strong finish to pip ARTISTE who won well yesterday, the placement of a good rider is a strong indicator from a manipulative stable. GRAND DUKE has not been able to win despite a few attempts, has handicap chance again. ALEJOR had impressed early in career but then faded out, may run well. EARTH TAMER has won at this level last year and should be trying.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS-GRAND DUKE-EARTH TAMER.

SPEAR OF TRIUM has a foreign rider , has been prepared after easy runs in Mumbai , dam was a speedy one winner of 7 sprints. DONATA who has been plagued with injuries early in life looking very forward and has low weights to strike. IT’S HIGH TIME has a good rider , may run well with a changed name.

DONATA-SPEAR OF TRIUM-IT’S HIGH TIME.

2. DREAMLAND is working well and can provide the rider with first win here. TILIEST is the oldie who may be backed but needs to get a few runs for a serious backing. POLAR ZONE has good early speed. HIGHWAY EXPRESS who had won comfortably in last start has tracked nicely, should do well at this level.

DREAMLAND-HIGHWAY EXPRESS-TITLIEST.

3. SONG OF AFRICA is a good sprinter who did well last season, has top weight and a weak rider as negatives. WINDSOR QUEEN is showing out in tracks, has good sped and will fight out. CROWNED PRINCESS is the aged one who looks fit and gets the try rider from the stable. BURGUNDY ROSE is one paced , has been given reducing runs and impressed in recent gates, should be the prime contender at this level.

WINDSOR QUEEN- BURGUNDY ROSE CROWNED PRINCESS.

4. GREEK GOD is a precocious one who reeled off ins in all 3 runs in youngsters category, now runs against class horses and will have to dig deep to win again.

DREAMLINER has been given 15 easy runs since he won at this level in this class last Pune season and is now tracking well, should be the one to watch on backing by the gambling connections. TAHRIR can sprint well at low weights.

DREAMLINER-HIDDEN ASSET-SILSILA

6. DANCING PRANCES was gallant in defeat in sprinters cup , has weights to carry on the grassy surface and is conceding weight to speedy types. OKAVANGO is looking quite fit from works, will run a forward race. FALCON has tracked well, needs a bit more of ground for finishing on. ZORAAVAR is a good type who is always fighting for supremacy, can be a serious threat to all. HEAT WAVE may be tried at low weights, had a wonderful last season.

ZORAAVAR-DANCING PRANCES-FALCON.

7. ACT OF VALOUR by an ordinary sire had impressed a lot with a good forward run, is tracking well. ELAHEH is from a speedy sire and was nicely prepared in Mumbai, had an educational run, can surprise here. FULL MOON should be favored to win as she was a fighting looser to good type THE GENERAL, looks fit. SOMEONE SPECIAL had come up well to challenge the winner in last race, tracks are pleasing. The well bred ZADORA has caught the eye with speedy gates, may trouble all in maiden run.

FULL MOON-ZADORA-ACT OF VALOUR.

8. ARTISTE is from a good sire and has credentials to win today as he has finished ahead of main adversaries in INTIME and JEWEL in mumbai, is showing keen works. The other two are also working fast. QUIZICAL who is half sister to good type CHALA JA BACHA has impressed in preparation.

ARTISTE-INTIME- JEWEL.

9. FORGOTTEN VOICE is a nice bred who impressed in last win over a mile, should be fancied in this class.
