Races at this centre have become very unpredictable , even worse than Mysore and Delhi with senior jockeys becoming unreliable and small time riders like Chetankalay looking good on backed rides. I feel frustrated to have tipped ABLE MASTER as a days best, the horse ran like a donkey, was it the riders fault or the father packed it up. SURAJ NAREDU has been very suspicious on his rides on favorites, KING GLORIEUX, STAR OF DESTINY, CZAR RULE, EMPEROR CRUISE,CULLINAN, LOVEOFMYLIFE , GARUDA etc in the last one month or so have been victims of shoddy rides from this one hailed as a champion jockey. The manner in which the horses look a looser well before the home run gives lots of doubts about the intent.
1. SHIVALIK EYES from a very ordinary mare has lived upto its breeding and been a no go racer so far, has shown bit of improvement and has been well tracked. ROYAL DEFENCE from the crook trainer has a good chance after the last suggestive run, the owner has clout to get full sincerity if backed. JOEY is a failed favorite from the tainted stables, ignore. MISTER GREY may get interested as distance suits and he was finishing on late. MYSTIC LAVENDERS was a keen finisher who has low weights again.
SHIVALIK EYES/MISTER GREY-PLACE.
2. MAGNETIZE has form , was beaten at the post last time, the trainer is striking regularly this season. CHERRY HINTON was a late finisher, may be tried . PRIVATE PARTY has a rider switch after an improved run. ZERMATT is down in scales and is due for a win. , was a forward runner.
3. BALIA is half brother to MAUNA KEA, has been sharpened up. COLORATO is ordinary in breeding, looks improved after the failed mission at Hyd. MR BIG SHOT was a forward runner over this trip. I CHISTY used to be a regular rider for MAM for years long time ago, rides again for the man, ONES OWN is well bred grand son of celebrated racer BIRTHDAY GIRL and in top fettle, should win on a genuine effort from the stables.
4. CLICK may run a competitive race for the trainer in form. MADDOX showed return to form and is sure to be tried again. ATLAS POWER runs for 109 th time and has scope even now. COOLMORE has not been sighted by rail birds since last win? YELLOW ZONE has low weights and last run was suggestive.
5. Last run of HIDDEN SOLDIER was backward, may have lost form.GLITTERING has been well tracked and can speed away. VENCEDORA has the good rider repeating, looks tough to win. TEMUJIN was looking good in last run, has good speed to win.AIR DANCER has a chance at low weights.
6. MARKUS SITTIKUS was a suggestive 2nd to WILD WILD ANGELS, has been given a run and now gets the rider in form. DREAM STAR is speedy but has not been able to sustain in the final furlong. STARHUNT is catching the eye with smart works after a comfortable win. I SMILE was shaping to win in last run but in weaker company.
DREAM STAR/MARKUS SITTIKUS-PLACE.
7. CAPITALIZE had finished with a rattle in last run, has a useful rider now. ARZIKI may be the doosra, what can one say, the horse was a nice 2nd and has the striking rider. HILLTON has useful form. CARDUCCI was given a suspect ride, may rebound. ALL PROOF is down in scales, has been kept handy in runs. KIMORA is appealing on handicap, has the rider to boot home at low weights
8. Looks tough for FLAMES FURY, has poor form. ZULU FANTASY ran wobbly yet finished on under the no hope rider, can strike now, but the trainer should know that 95 % winners from the sire MATHEMATICIAN are over 1400m. ARTHURIAN has tracked nicely but has flopped in all outings, is from a very weak trainer, but has a very suspect opposition to beat. SHIDEH ran well in maiden outing, is from a very average trainer.
