NATIVE TALENT has been prepared vwery well, this full brother to PRAYATNA may find the distance sharp. SARATOGA has the benefit of a run. GLORIOSA is the filly who has been subjected to thorough works, all have to catch her. BLUE DEW is the best bred full sister to SOUTHERN CHARGE, the jockey has done nothing so far.
GLORIOSA-BLUE DEW-NATIVE TALENT
KINGDOM OF DREAMS is brother to good type LIVING LUXURY & BALTHAZAR, who is in top condition. RUBY LEGEND should place. MISSY MOONLIGHT was a big flop of the season. SOCIAL CLIMBER is half brother to INTRINSIC VALUE, has to improve based on good tracks.
KINGDOM OF DREAMS-RUBY LEGEND-SOCIAL CLIMBER
ORANGE ORCHARD is the only horse here who has ever won a race. LET THE RIVER RUN looks good on handicap. TRACK WONDER has a try jockey/ trainer combination. AWESOME FIGHTER who has tracked the max but never earned much should be in the fray with a jockey back from wilderness.
LET THE RIVER RUN-AWESOME FIGHTER-TRACK WONDER
RAPTOR FORCE was eye catching finisher who may find the distance bit long. THE LAST SAMMURAI impressed in his last win. SUNNY COLOURS is a stayer with a good jockey. SARMAIDAR is bred for trips like this, the jockey is inexperienced for staying.
THE LAST SAMMURAI-SUNNY COLOURS-SARMAIDAR
CLASSERVILLE is a classic hopeful of the trainer.VIVACITY was very impressive winner who has improved a lot in works. CAYENNE was a handsome winner who has a turn of foot. TANZANITE is in tough company today after a decent win. HATSUHAANA has a lot of hype. MYSTIC QUEST goes much better against CLASSERVILLE today after being caught on the post.
CIMMARON is at a stiff handicap after the last fluent win. EASY is a moody runner .EL GORDO may upset. CRACK JACK did not run as per expectations last time.
EL GORDO-CRACK JACK-CIMMARON
BLACK SPLENDOUR, GARA FLUID , DARK TAN , are in form. TRAFALGAR SQUARE and PAINT ME RED appeal on jockeys merits.

1. THE REBEL runs well in sprints. CLASSIC SPIRIT is being urged in tracks, the rider is weak. STEFANO is going to be the favorite but he has done nothing so far. RATNAVALI looks improved.
2. VEERA WANG was a very impressive winner at Pune, has a chance despite the weight. CAVARDOSSI has been worked at in tracks. SALVE REGINA did not race at Pune, looks fit.
3. BRUCKNER is very well bred being 3 parts brother to DIEGO RIVIERA, should fight out. CANMBRIOSSO needs time to develop, the full brother to PERCIEVED VALUE has been well prepared. M CRUSADER is full brother to STAR WAVE , the rider has a task on hand against the whites. RIVER CHIEFTAIN is half brother to STAR PRESENTATION, he is also in the fray with good preparation. THE PEARL is best in works, the pedigree is equally solid for this sister to three black types in RADICAL FORCE, ROAD RUNNER & GOLDEN EDITION. All have to catch Oza today.
THE PEARL-RIVER CHIEFTAIN
4. PREMIER QUEEN who lost out due to the nervousness of the jockey should amend with PARIS HILTON as the main danger due to weights. POLARISER should run a forward race and LOVELY FEELINGS as the up setter.
PREMIER QUEEN-PARIS HILTON-LOVELY FEELINGS
5. SECRET PILGRIM and TIGRESSE NOIRE at low weights appeal based on last easy runs.
SECRET PILGRIM-TIGRESSE NOIRE
6.CASUAL LOOK has come down in scales . So has DON’T BE SILLY who has beaten some good ones while winning two races, looks to run a forward race. PRINCESS RUBY has a jockey switch, EL BUNDUQ is going to contest at this distance.
DON’T BE SILLY-PRINCESS RUBY-EL BUNDUQ
7. CARMEN could not win despite backing last time, the sire has yet to prove himself. DESDEMONA, MOON FLOWER & SHIEKHA are working well. SEA QUEEN is well bred.
8. SUCCESSOR did not race at Pune hence should not be supported at cramped odds based on last years performance. SNOW BLIND has a good jockey for placing. The one who is catching the eye in works is ILL DIVO .
IL DIVO-SUCCESSOR-SNOW BLIND
9. COURAGE UNDER FIRE has raced with much better types, take it as a good bet. FIRE QUEEN should place again. CHOPSANI looks improved. UBER ALLES may run better then last time.

2.ARCTIC MIST is zestful in tracks, needs a run after the medical break. DOLTON POWER has raced with better types, has been braught down in class and is looking good in works. DARTAGGAN has been an enigma with the trainer, looks improved. CROSSWORD bolts to the front, has not been trained to run properly, may last all the way. VIELLE is at pin weight, may upset.
3. WINNING CHICK has an allowance jockey, she has won at these weights before. PARAMOUNT has been running suggestively forward races. TRUSTED FRIEND has the fly in jockey who may deliver as the field is average. MIDDLEMAN has come down in scales.
TRUSTED FRIEND-PARAMOUNT-WINNING CHICK
4. This SINGH is definitely no KING, has taken down a lot of betting money. RAINBOW SHINE is pleasing in tracks. AMAZING DANCER has to earn someday, has come down in class and has a try jockey. THE DUKES has been a costly failure. GANDHRAJ was a leisurely runner in last run, has a chance here.
AMAZING DANCER-RAINBOW SHINE-GANDHRAJ
5. ROCKING STAR is the new star at the capital, has to be backed as a good thing based on tear away win in last two attempts. SUNEHRA PARINDA was a comfortable winner who was second to R STAR earlier. DAZZLING WISE was an impressive winner in his maiden win.
ROCKING STAR-TURKISH DOLL-RITHAMBARA
6. LADY’S CROWN was a surprise winner who belongs to a shady type trainer. ZABARDUST won without being backed last time, will be trying to repeat as he is well rested and working well. DIVINE THUNDER has been kept under wraps, the placement of the jockey is indicative. NYMPHETMINE was a big flop as a favorite, the jockey has been scrubbing her in works. PRIVATE EYE is coming to hand.

1. MILES AND MORE is tracking well, he is an out and out stayer who has not been tried in all his runs, looks good on handicap. FANTASTIC FURY comes into contention based on his last run. BLUE VISION has not been seen at Pune, definitely needs a race run , the mock race was notable.
MILES AND MORE-BLUE VISION
2. FREE SPIRIT may place, the rider is not good in sprints. WELLS FARGO ran suggestively last time. BORZU AGAIN is being urged in tracks. TE QUIERO has a place chance once again. MODESTY has been running in patches during Pune, may surprise.
WELLS FARGO-BORZU AGAIN-TE QUIERO
3. SEA SPARROW who is a half brother to ON THE DOT is shining in works. ASTRAAL was eye catching in final stages of her last run. BLUE DANUBE is half sister to good type MONOPOLY, should run well. NATOUCHKA was a notable runner in million race.
4. FIRE WITHIN is tracking well. SUPREME FALCON may try to hit the front and stay on. ALHOMARA has been a disappointment so far. GRACES is full sister to black type WAVES OF GLORY, for some reason she could not be trained to race so far. The number of gates indicate some problem with the filly.
SUPREME FALCON-FIRE WITHIN-ALHOMARA
5. ARTISTIC LIASON is working well after the last second. PALME D’OR is speedy. WAR CRAFT has flopped as a favorite, looks raw in works. PAPER KING is kept easy in tracks, the pedigree is promising.
ARTISTIC LIASION-PAPER KING-PALME D’OR
6. MONOPOLY is a good type who is reverse on handicap vis a vis SCHNELL who has the benefit of a run. FLAMES OF FIRE is an upset candidate. STAR ADVENTURE won as a good thing, has improved. BEE QUICK was a big disappointment last time as a favorite, it just folded against ordinary horses, can not be backed. BU ATTIFEL has learned to race only as a five year old, can run well here.
7. OASIS STAR is the champion sprinter of last year who lost due to change of venue in Pune. Now he is refreshing in works and should be a good thing. The threat may be from RUNNING BULL who was a good 2nd to RHAPSIDION SNOW. CZAR ALEXANDER looks good in works. REJUVENITE and PEPE JUNIOR are hopefuls.
OASIS STAR-RUNNING BULL-CZAR ALEXANDER
8. ROMANTIC IMPACT is greatly improved, all have to beat him. ROSE BOWL is running after a long time, can not be backed for win despite the good works. GOLDEN SYMBOL is working well. BELLA has been prepared well, low weight appeals.
ROMANTIC IMPACT-BELLA-ROSE BOWL
9. CHIEFTAIN has a positive rider switch. SECRET TALK can not be expected to run well with Narredu who is from Shroff camp. The well bred ARES( computer flicker), looks to have come to hand. HIGHLAND QUEST has been given a couple of gates. DYNAMITE may run on board.
10. ILLUSSIONIST who has been working very well with ARGENTINA & SEA PRINCESS looks good on track work. This brother to PILLATUS is conceding weight to the likes of FOREST NATIVE etc who are well hardened with runs. BELLIGRENT is well bred and may run well. FORCE OF LAW is in form.

1.The best bred horse here is SENORA ENCINA who is half sister to WOMAN ON TOP, the sire is unfortunately producing staying types. PRITHVI is tracking very well, the trainer is non reliable on backed horses. BOCONCINO has been subjected to a long preparation and may run well. The one who caught my attention is LUSH LASHES, a half sister to AEROPOSTALE, the gates are quite impressive.
SENORA ENCINA-LUSH LASHES-PRITHVI
2. B Puttanna had a good bet on AAJ TAK in Mysore and the horse was backed down like a parachute , however ZANGI delivered the blow to followers of this controversial trainer. Today this horse has to be ON, he is seen on tracks everyday and may not stay in fit condition for long. CINDY GIRL was finishing on in a hurry last time but I feel she is more of a sprinter. MAAHI VE is a demote who ran fairly in last run. MISTER TROOPER is the one at longer odds.
AAJ TAK-MAAHI VE-CINDY GIRL
3. Don’t be fooled by the last run of STAR ASSEMBLY, it had drifted in rates. This full brother to BLADE RUNNER who won recently is shining in tracks and should hold the other one in fray;ie, VIRTUOSO who needs a bit more of distance being by YOUNG SENOR. The well bred CHINTZ is short of a race. This full sister to that good sprinter CAMRIOCA needs to be watched. CLASSIC TOUCH and KRIPA may fill the frame.
4. LOCK AND LOAD is in good form. TERN ME ON did not like the step up in distance, may run better here. The furious type MIND ME ran a good forward race and if he settles down can win. SO MUCH MORE has been well prepared.
LOCK AND LOAD-MIND ME-TERN ME ON
5. CAPTIVATING has been a tremendous sprinter who has to tackle a bit more, the pedigree is not for trips as such. RED RENEGADE who was chasing in last run may overhaul for a win. The tracks are extremely pleasing. MAJESTIC STRIDES a grand daughter to QUEEN’S RULE is in good form. The one who is shining in tracks is SPEARHEAD but definitely needs a run. FLOWER ALLEY can only improve, the field is tough.
RED RENEGADE-CAPTIVATING-MAJESTIC STRIDES
6. QUEEN RANIA is in awesome form and may be able to tackle the tough handicap today. JERSEY PRIDE is tracking well to warm up and fight out. MERCURIAL is working well. DINESA may run a forward race.
QUEEN RANIA-JERSEY PRIDE – MERCURIAL
7. ROYAOL AMBER has not been truly extended, belongs to another one of elusive trainer whose wards win only at decent odds. EDMONDO is badly off at handicap based on the run against ROYAL AMBER in Mysore but is still capable of winning if R AMBER is not there. CONCEPTUAL is working attractively. LESTER may place.
8. VAYU PUTRA is improved. SHEER GOLD is tracking well. ACT OF DUTY has a proper rider for first time, can run well. MUSIC FOREVER is the one who should win if the connections back it, they won well on SUPERIOR SURPRISE yesterday and have money in pockets to lay.

1.FANTASY KNOT has been working very well and the last run was in higher class, has a good chance here. SUN DEVICE lacks early speed and can not be backed despite the good rider repeating. COMMAND PERFORMANCE has been well prepared, the tracks are indicative. SAN FRANCISCO GIRL has a try jockey.
FANTASY KNOT-COMMAND PERFORMANCE-SUN DEVICE
2. ORIENTATION was kept too far back in last run. The claiming jockey has a good chance if he sharpens up the horse in time. LAGO VISTA was flat foot at the start, can not be backed after flopping as a favorite though the handicap appeals. A RUN TO REMEMBER is likely to run a forward race. IMMORTAL who is still a maiden is another failed favorite who should not be considered. LIVE IT UP is stepping down to the correct distance.
ORIENTATION-LIVE IT UP-IMMORTAL
3. The Gaswar colt DREAM PARK is showing out in works after the good 2nd to BOURBON BAY who ran well amongst a tougher company at Mumbai. HIGH GLEAM is likely to force the issue being a speedy type. LOWNDES SQUARE is a winner when running in reasonable company over 1400m. BLACK BEAUTY is showing fast tracks.
DREAM PARK-HIGH GLEAM-LOWNDES SQUARE
4. RARE AND PRECIOUS is a good type who has been well trimmed. Poetic is tracking well and will fight out. SPICY STAR is fast in tracks, will be in the fray. MARCEGALIA looks improved and has a handicap jockey. SPARK OF CLASS at low weights is well prepared for a surprise.
RARE AND PRECIOUS-POETIC-SUNNY BABA
5. RIMPUCHE was alerted a little bit late last time, has to fight once again, will only be tried by the trainer if father trained horse is not "ON". CANNAVARO has the benefit of an easy run in mocks, he is a good type. SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE is consistent and likely to figure on board. ROYAL TREASURE is pleasing in works after going down narrowly last time. SALSERA won well, may repeat. DISTINCTLY AHEAD is very well bred who has the benefit of an easy run.
DISTINCTLY AHEAD—SALSERA-ROYAL TREASURE
6. GIFT A DIAMOND was finishing on like a train in last defeat, needs consideration. SUPERIOR SURPRISE belongs to a shady type trainer. DOUBLE ELITE is a consistent type with a better jockey now. FREE MASON is working well.
GIFT A DIAMOND-DOUBLE ELITE-SUPERIOR SURPRISE
7. QUIET ACHIEVER is improved a lot and will fight for supremacy at this distance. JERSEY ROCK has been a costly failure. RED SHIFT looks suspect at staying. SPANDOU BALLET has a staying pedigree but has not impressed in his runs. SEVEN STAR who is working well should be fighting out.
QUIET ACHIEVER-SEVEN STAR-SPANDOU BALLET
8. REPIQUE is working well. PERFECT ANALYSIS has a decent handicap chance based on the last easy run. LADY BANKS is a well bred who was a fighting second to the too good GLORIOUS PRINCESS. ANNA'S QUEST is working well.TELEMACCHUS won well, the handicap is a bother.

1. MYPETHONEY is speedy and should be running a forward race. MOONSTORM
is working well and this speedily bred horse who placed in the last run has a poor company to beat. BLADE RUNNER is a failure, can not expect him to win a sprint. WHITE HART LANE is another failure who is tracking well.
2. EKHABINSKYA who is bred for speed should be followed on her breeding itself, the last win was impressive. HYMS TO FREEDOM is a front runner and may get involved. The threat is from INSITE SOUL who looks improved . BLUE DAFFODILS may be considered for place.
EKHABINSKYA-INSITE SOUL-BLUE DAFFODILS
3. CONGRATS is bred to stay, the preparation is strong and he has nothing to beat. PENINSULA has been a failure and BRAD who is at good handicap has a weak jockey.
4. INDIAN SUMMER should like this distance. SECRET GLORY is working well. CALYPSO DANCER won well and will be tried again. CEST BON , the horse named after a Chinese restraunt is from the impeccable mare PRICELESS, the preparation is meticulous.
CEST BON-SECRET GLORY-CALYPSO DANCER
5. RAQUEL who was a good 2nd against 4 year olds has a chance to win in a very competitive field. PRINCE LOCHINVA is likely to run a forward race. SEA GULL looks vastly improved after change of stables and should be in the fray. KA CHING who won a sprint in a framed race may be tried but is at stiff handicap. The one who should place is SOLID BLACK.
RAQUEL-SOLID BLACK-SEA GULL
6. SPIRITUALL has been well trained, the distance is a bother. SPICA was eye catching in last run and has a chance now though it has a bad habit of not going out for win in last few yards. PILLATUS is at a good handicap, the tracks show fitness. ZARZANTAINE was a good winner who may run a good race again.
7. ARTS who is showing lots of eagerness in works is half brother to that spedy filly ALVARITA. DUKE OF WINDSOR is bound to run a forward race under this rider. RIVER BLOSSOM can not be backed here , it had flopped in Pune. ROCKBY VENUS who has been given a soft ride is the one to upset. VIOLETTA who is bred to stay is blazing the tracks, should be in with a chance.
ARTS-VIOLETTA-DUKE OF WINDSOR
8. RED INDIAN is at a stiff handicap but has enough speed to last out. LEGENDARY has been well prepared. OYSTER PRINCESS runs well when fresh, may upset. STAR O WAR is at a tidy handicap. GENERALISSIMO has come down in scales and comes out better than some of the fancied runners in this field.
RED INDIAN-STAR O WAR-GENERALISSIMO
9. MISCHEVIOUS TROT ran a fine race and will be involved. MR GREEDY can last out all the way, the runs have braught him on. KISS AWAY is a sparingly raced horse who is working well. MICKY MANTLE running after a long year impressed in mocks.
KISS AWAY-MISCHEVIOUS TROT-MICKY MANTLE
10. ARGENTINA was a big failure due to the over eagerness and misplaced confidence of the trainer who pitched him at a staying distance in first run. The horse has been penalized and has a stiff challenge even today as it may not win at short odds. SECRET TALK can not be considered to win as the jockey belongs to the favorite’s camp. FOREVER AMBER should do the trick if favorite flounders once again. GOLDEN KEY and SPARROW HAWK are the up setters at longish odds.

NEW DELHI RACES
1. The race for three year olds seem to be in favor of SUNEHRA PARINDA who had run second to the best juvenile at this centre; ie, ROCK ING STAR in its first run. The horse is full brother to MANDJI and looks well prepared. The threat emanates from a very fast filly SEX BOMB who has gate problems. The filly is sister to BASTIAN BAY has been speedy in trials, the mock race was suggestive. JEWEL HUNT had run very well in last run but was beaten well by TAKE A CHANCE who had run behind S PARINDA.
SUNEHRA PARINDA-SEX BOMB
2. A tough race with many contenders, AMAZING WARRIOR with a try jockey on demotion, SOLITARY MAN with the fly in jockey, STRIVING HIGHER who has come down a lot, HERO’S POWER who belongs to a shady trainer and got beat when running as a hotly backed down favorite in last run; in form old horse SUPERB SUCCESS & the last time pulled mare SUPER GIRL with a controversial rider. The placing of the top jockey shows an edge for HERO’S POWER but it can not be backed with confidence.
AMAZING WARRIOR-HERO’S POWER-SUPER GIRL
3. BEST OF LUCK has the handicap claimer from Bangalore, the horse is not a front runner. READY TO WIN who is tracking well may not like the full distance. STROKE OF BRILLIANCE with the claiming jockey may place. DOON BOY is in form . WILD WIND was not ON in last run, the handicap appeals.
WILD WIND-BEST OF LUCK-DOON BOY
4. ASHWA PRAGYA is by a good sire from a staying mare, the distance is not the worry but he was lucky to win the million because of the mistake of jockey on TURKISH DOLL.I am convinced he can not win today. METALLIKA won as a good thing and is well bred to take on this distance, the earier races when finishing behind A PRAGYA need to be discounted as Rajinder was not riding. BEATRICE and BLUE LAGOON have the low weights in favor as both are bred to stay, may run well.
5. SOUL SATISFACTION has been braught down for a match up with RUBY ROSA. Last year the former had prevailed at nearby weight distance and the age and preparation are again in favor. The race will also prove the testing for the imported jockey. GIN AND TONIC who was the unlucky looser in 1000guineas may run a good forward race against the two. KING’S CHALLENGE appears to have gone backward after the equine flu, the last two runs were too bad otherwise at this handicap he has a chance.
SOUL SATISFACTION-RUBY ROSA-GIN AND TONIC
6. FERALIGATOR may place with the claiming jockey. YOUNG ANNA won as a good thing and the very fact that it has not been taken out for tracks shows the confidence to encore. PADDINGTON should be vying for the spots at this distance. MY WILD LOVE had flopped as a favorite, the distance may not help. ENDLESS STRIDES has been working well. AVTAAR ran a fair race to be in with a chance.

ES SIDER-FIRE QUEEN-JOHNNY BRAVO
2. The race is in the jodi of FLARING SUN & CHEROOKEE. The well bred FLARING SUN was eye catching in his latest track. FOREST MUSIC & TEMBUNG are working well enough to fight out for places.
3. WESTERN CHALLENGE with a run has a decent chance as this Razzen offspring has been handled badly by the trainer so far. The horse who is working attractively is MATATA PRIDE who is well bredhalf brother to KANTHARA & GAEA. TELSTAR will find it difficult to win. GAZEBO is at low weights, may run a forward race.
WESTERN CHALLENGE-MATATA PRIDE-TELSTAR
4. The well bred PREMIER QUEEN is tracking very well. POLARIZER has been an enigma, last run was too bad as it did not run in customary front runner style.CLASSIC STAR can build up on the place achieved in last run. LEGAL EYE ran a fair 2nd after a long lay off and may benefit now.
PREMIER QUEEN-LEGAL EYE-CLASSIC STAR
5. INTIMACY has lots of speed to win from the front with the allowance jockey. SOCORORO is not likely to win in sprints. TOP ACTION can surprise like in first run last season. ROMAN BEAUTY has been well prepared, will fight the front runners. XIAMEN is speedy.
6. DIEGO RIVIERA has top weight to handle, has a tough job in first run. HOTSTEPPER is working well. RHAPSIDON SNOW has to handle the change of venue and the distance, not likely to win. RUBEN STAR has benefit of mocks and preparation. YANA is at a tidy handicap. RUNNING BULL is in fine trim.
RUNNING BULL-RUBEN STAR-YANA
7. The two contenders for classics this year have to sort out their standings today. DANCING DYNAMITE with a good mock race is well prepared. AUTONOMY who has run with better types lacks preparation and as it got beat by FLAMING ACE he may have a tough job on hand despite public faith.The thing in his favor are the distance and the class.
8. All have to beat FOREST FLAIR who lost narrowly in first run. The main challenger may be stable mate BOURBION STAR who looks improved & the bought in foal filly NATAUSHKA is very forward. CHECK HER OUT had won well at Pune and may be in for place money.SANS PAREIL was a miserable failure, can not be considered here.
FOREST FLAIR-NATAUSHKA-BOURBON BAY

1. GYPSY MAGIC who is full sister to champion horse SOUTHERN EMPIRE ran green
last time, the trainer who is at the top of things lately has prepared her very well. The serious competition could come from CORBETT who was a good third to a good type STAR OF MARMALADE, this colt is well bred and tracking well, the dam was a stayer.
SHADES OF WHITE who is full brother to SHOOT A RAINBOW has a place chance along with NOBLE SACRIFICE who is working very well. Though the dam did not race, the grand dam gave good type produce, Samar Singh has a decent type filly here. REDSTONE is another one who ran well last time.
GYPSY MAGIC-CORBETT-SHADES OF WHITE
2. A difficult race to predict but as I see it trainer Prithviraj is likely to pitch in with the held back NICE GUY who has to again contend with ROYAL FLYNN. Last time when NICE GUY won as a good thing heavily backed down, R FLYNN was a faraway 3rd. It is rare to see foreign jockeys tracking class V horse , hence the indication is very strong. ZIGGY STARDUST & LADY OF LIGHT appear to be place candidates.
NICE GUY-ROYAL FLYNN-LADY OF LIGHT
3. Normally 5 year olds race is tricky as all are tryers, and upsets are the order of the day. Second string trainers take a chance in such fields. I would like to give one more chance to HAWAIIN SUNRISE who has done nothing in last two or more years. The last run on board to this horse who is tracking regularly defines the edge. GARA FLUID was a decent 2nd. CHAR CHAND is unreliable. Trainer V Gowda who must be finding it difficult to survive in training has a couple of outsiders who may place.
HAWAAIIN SUNRISE-GARA FLUID-SCOTCH CROWN
4. STAR SPEED was a disappointment in last run. Now when you look back it is clear he got beat by a good type DESERT RULE. The other horse who pipped him, SPARK OF GOLD won handsomely yesterday at good odds. He needs to be reconsidered on good trainer and breeding point of view. GREENS had run along behind him and is tracking well. ONE is in good nick in works. SARMAIDAR is maintaining form, should relish the bottom weight being a staying type.
5. Both ABOLINE and ALACRITY beat MISTIC QUEST, but the win of ALACRITY was more authoritative. The horse is shining in tracks and being from the better sire is tipped to win the million from the other two serious contenders.
6. MARK OF GIBRALTAR was good thing last week before being withdrawn, now he is being pitched in top class with an average rider. The preparation inclusive of mocks are indicative but he has fight to defy the handicap. The serious challenger to me appears to be the top weighted EINSTEIN who has good jockey and belongs to a trainer who is doing extremely well with older horses. Fighting chance can also be given to THE CONTENDER who flashed on from behind in last run. MILFORD is tracking well. SOBERANO has some form.
MARK OF GIBRALTAR-EINSTEIN-THE CONTENDER
7. WAR CHILD has been a let down all summers loosing as a hot favorite. The latest tracks show improvement. MISS PAKKA showed improvement and the third place is difficult to define. DARK TAN & MISS MARVELLOUS may be in.
WAR CHILD-MISS PUKKA-DARK TAN
8. THE SPARTAN who ran well enough has a difficult job at handicap, he appears the one from the trainers yard who should not win. FESTINO was the other impressive runner who is sparingly raced. FLIP YOUR DESTINY who is at a tidy handicap has a chance to flip them over.

shows lack of intent though the horse is working well. PERSIAN PRINCESS is sister to DASH TO CASH, she may place. REGAL GLORY is the best in tracks, all have to catch her. RUSSIAN DANCER is working very well, may run a good race. CALYPSO STAR is the best bred, half sister to the good type POETIC.
REGAL GLORY-CALYPSO STAR-PERSIAN PRINCESS
2. SUN DEVICE has raced with better horses, the question is whether it races well up at the turn to the straight. VOICE OF INDIA is in form, the jockey ?.,can not be backed. NON STOP CANNON who has been well prepared has a chance to start firing. ORANGE ORCHID has been subjected to a long preparation, should be a good place bet.
NON STOP CANNON-SUN DEVICE-ORANGE ORCHARD
3. TIME FLIES is brother to WORD TO WORD & JULIA, needs more distance though the sire throws speedy types. ROYAL LEGEND does not attract much confidence. TOPKAPI is full brother to HYPERKINETIC, the mare has been so so in produce so far, the tracks are fine. RUGGED BEAUTY belonging to a sly trainer is best based on previous run, may run well, can not be backed with the terrible record of the trainer .

4. EASY becomes lazy near the finish, may run on?. REBELLIOUS always wakes up very late, let us watch how he fares today, the tracks are indicative. ZAFAR may fight once again for getting ahead, has atough chance. INDIA SHINNING has a good chance if the rider is fit. He has been doping mostly nowadays. PANCHAKSHARI has been prepared, should last all the way with the claimer.
5. SUPER SPEED has come down a lot, it is due to surprise any day. One out of the two of Darashah horses is likely to fight here, SAPTASHWA is better placed to do so at this distance. ALL MY COLOURS has a good chance based on the good win earlier in the season. SPARK OF GOLD who won as a good thing may repeat. SHOOT A RAINBOW has a handicap chance.
ALL MY COLOURS-SHOOT A RAINBOW-SPARK OF GOLD
6. ON THE DOT is tough at handicap. MYSTIC STAR has been prepared, the jockey switch is an indicator. BASTIAN BAY has been well prepared, the jockey is poor. EVER SO CLEVER is at lower weights with a good jockey. SANGINI is at low weights, may run well.
MYSTIC STAR-EVER SO CLEVER-BASTIAN BAY
7. MISS HONEYDEW & YOUR DETINY appear as the main challengers here, the latter has a slight handicap edge. PINNAKINI has good chance to run a forward race. FANTASY KNOT belonging to a non performing stable is eye catching in tracks, can upset.I dont like runners of Karan Singh with Prakash on top, they seldom win.
YOUR DESTINY-MISS HINEYDEW-FANTASY KNOT
8. CRACK JACK & CIBONEY are likely to be in the fray, the former has beaten the later once before and hence has an edge. CHAKRAVYUH BHEDEK won well & retains form . JERSEY POWER is at ideal handicap to pose some threat.

1. RUBAIYAT impressed in gate practice, the few runs were poor during last season. SECRET AGENDA has a weak jockey. ADAM’S LAW ran well enough at Pune to be in reckoning here, the tracks are fine. AMBER CAT has not worked but may run well.
ADAM’S LAW-RUBAIYAT-SECRET AGENDA
2. SLIK KIT was given what can be termed as dubious ride when running as a favorite under N Rawal. The horse is moving well in tracks. CHAMBERLAIN could not be trained last year due to some problems, the pedigree is suggestive & the tracks are very attractive, may run a winning race but can not be backed first time out. ZEN was an unimpressive runner last week. EASTER LILY is sister to speedy SALANDRA & SNAP DRAGON, will be in the fray.
SLIK KIT-CHAMBERLAIN-EASTER LILY
3. GEOMETRIC is the best bred in this race, he is brother to sire ROSMINI, & black type ONLY FOR GOLD, may surprise. SEA OF KISSES should be considered based on his run at Pune. This brother to BLUE MOUNTAIN & ECHOES OF LIGHT has potential. CARMEN is the first serious runner from the first time sire IKHTYAR, the breeding is for more distance. The filly is showing out in tracks& should put up a fighting show.
SEA OF KISSES-CARMEN
4. CYCLADES was a let down in 1000m, can not be fancied here. VEERA WANG had won impressively at Pune and has been working well. RAQUEL is coming out from set back, needs this run.WILD TORRANADO ran good forward races at Pune, may surprise. SECRET ADMIRER has run with better types in million races, the handicap suits.

5. HIGHLAND CROWN is a good type brother to DIEGO RIVIERA, he is bound to progress in class.It had beaten CHIOS who was an impressive winner last week.CHEVRON had run a suggestive race in Pune, it should do well at this distance. SHARE MY DREAMS is working well, it won a maiden’s race comfortably.beating THANDA who has handicap in favor now.
6. ARTISTIC LIAISON may find the trip a bit sharp. BLUE JAY is a well bred who lost last week due to a nervous rookie. RULE OF LAW is speedy. Watch out for CLOUD COVER from the canny trainer who wins with horses without any track work to give away his intentions.
BLUE JAY-RULE OF LAW-ARTISTIC LIAISON
7. STAR CRUSADER is tracking very well, but he is unreliable type from the failed sire. MR GRREDY has been given a run, has a try jockey. ARK’S ANGEL has won in poor company at Pune, can not be considered here. GO GUZZI GO & RISING HERO have contested over staying distances before, GUZZI is working well. VANTAGE is showing out, has the mature jockey at low weights.
VANTAGE-GO GUZZI GO-MR GREEDY
8. BARBARA has a good chance after last run. ARGENTINA is made to run at 1600m in first run after some good tracks, can not be expected to win despite the good breeding and the jockey. MAGIC MANTRA may run well. HI DOLLY was a good 2nd over 1800 at Pune, now has a chance to score as the trainer has been tracking his horses after being in hibernation.

1. PLEIAD ran a forward race but needs more distance. FRAUD is the first ride of the foreign jockey, may figure on board. HIGH OPINION has been a let down so far. SILVER PEG who was lucky to win last time is well rested, the tracks are O K. MURBAN has been held back so far, may do the trick today as he has virtually nothing to beat.
2. AS YOU WISH is full brother to the best three year old of last year at this centre ; ie, STRENGTH TO SUCCESS, the colt has been extensively prepared to give the initiating win to this jockey. DAMIEN should have benefited from the mocks, should run well. OUTSTANDING has not lived upto her name so far, can not be fancied based on her poor runs so far.
AS YOU WISH-DAMIEN
3. CHARG AWAY ran below expectations last time, the handicap jockey has to ride well to beat others. VAGABOND has the top jockey but being from CASE LAW it is difficult to support him for this staying trip. MORE THAN A WOMAN has the handicap in favor, the distance should not be a problem.
MORE THAN A WOMAN-VAGABOND
4. GOLDEN GUN has been well prepared, it ran well enough last year in similar company. SENEGAL has very good speed , the only question is the distance. He won narrowly despite taking weight from THE ROCK last year but appears far improved now. THE ROCK has not come up to the mark this year, has an outside chance. STUNNING ROSE won very narrowly last time, it drifted out, the jockey does not ride well in Delhi where the track is rougher than the grassy turf of Western India. He was seen to be very vary of running close to others last time he was here. The horse has a fighting chance.
SENEGAL-THE ROCK-STUNNING ROSE
5. QUALITY ASSURANCE was a good gamble after some dubious runs earlier. Looks too good here for a repeat performance. DAZZLING FLAME will only be on if the favorite is not in the race. DIVINE HEIGHTS has come up, should be involved. GANDIVA has a handicap chance.
QUALITY ASSURANCE-DIVINE HEIGHTS-GNDIVA
6. REAL QUEEN is a speedy type, came up last time despite being a non tryer. DREAM DEBUT is in top form. CATALUNYA ran over an unsuitable distance last time with Narredu on top to deceive the people, over her pet distance she looks to be home. WINNING CHICK has come down in scales.
CATALUNYA-REAL QUEEN-DREAM DEBUT
7. TIME TO WYN has come down a class, can run a forward race. GREAT GIVER is being tried today, that is definite from the running and track pattern. ASHWA PRAGYA had won at nearly these scales during earlier part of season, may upset. PADDINGTON should run a forward race to go all the way. FIVE STAR can be in thick of it only on backing from the stables.

2. DANTE’S PEAK has a good rider, the distance suits this tendon troubled horse. NEW PASTURES looks good on handicap, the good jockey has a chance. QUIET ACHIEVER is still a maiden, he is in good form. PRETTY N FAST is at low weights.
NEW PASTURES-QUIET ACHIEVER-DANTE’S PEAK
3. SUNNY GOLD showed out to be a good type by the effortless win last time. SIBERIAN PRINCESS is bound to be in fighting line with a try jockey today after that very close finish as a non tryer. TABLE MOUNTAIN has been tracking well after a dismal performance in Mysore, may need this run. LET THE RIVER RUN can run a forward race.
SUNNY GOLD-SIBERIAN PRINCESS-LET THE RIVER RUN
4. ORIENTATION is down a class, has scope here. BUCK PASSER JUNIOR had last won under this jockey, has a chance to fight again. YOU AND I is tracking well. GIRL NEXT DOOR is showing out in tracks but often she runs differently in real races. SENNA is a place hopeful at these weights.
ORIENTATION-BUCK PASSER JUNIOR-YOU AND I
5. LOWNDES SQUARE had run a suggestive race. Lots of hype is being shown on CLASSERVILLE by the track reporters, the full brother to the below expectations performer OUR EXCELLENCE has been painstakingly prepared. ZAMBEZI SUN with a mediocre trainer—he is the full brother to Golconda Derby winner RECONNECT, the tracks are good. MYSTIC QUEST has been outraced by speedy types, the change of rider may do the trick.
MYSTIC QUEST-CLASSERVILLE-ZAMBEZI SUN
6. SUGAR RAY is maintaining form after the impressive win. MARK OF GIBRALTOR has been shrewdly run, looks good here in a sprint. CALMING INFLUENCE was a comfortable winner who is maintaining form. ALCMENE is speedy type at low weights.
MARK OF GIBRALTOR-ALCMENE-CALMING INFLUENCE
7. FLEETING ARROW is the top handicapper who is in top condition. FANTASTIC QUEST is an average bred but the best of MAM’ s lot this year at this centre. TIMELESS TREASURE should like the trip. ICEBREAKER the winner of the Oaks has a fight on hand.
FLEETING ARROW-ICE BREAKER-FANTASTIC QUEST
8. DESERT REALM was an easy winner who is in form. EQUIDAE has not lived upto her potential, the handicap suits. SILKEN THOMAS was an easy winner in poor company, has stiff penalty to defy. FLAIR QUEEN is working well. HALL MARK appears to be a sprinter only, may surprise.
EQUIDAE-FLAIR QUEEN-HALL MARK
9. SMART N SPECIAL can not win, it is one paced. SUNNY’S SYMPHONY has been well prepared may need this run. REFRESH is running under this good jockey every time, may grace the board. MOVIE QUEEN appeals on handicap, should win now.

10. ACQUITAINE is a good type from the speedy sire, all have to catch him. RIMPUCHE has been steadily prepared. SPIRITOFEXCELLENCE has been tracking well. RIVER ISLAND has been disappointing at the finish in all his races, the only time in his life he won was under this rider.

1. GALACTICA is at an upsetting handicap, no tracks?. PHOSPHOR is a highly pedigreed bought in horse who appears very fit from the tracks, all have to beat him today. FULL FAITH is a speedy type,. the distance does not suit. CHANDELIER is running after a very long time, hence can not be fancied to win. CHIEF WARRIOR was eye catching in last run.
2. CAMBIASSO is bred to stay, can not be fancied in sprints. SEA TREASURE is showing out in works. VISIONARY is half brother to black type RAY OF LIGHT, the tracks are very impressive. DE NADA is full sister to good type SEA PRINCESS & DESERT LIGHTNING, should be fighting out here. GREAT WHITE is suitable for longer trips.
DE NADA-VISIONARY-SEA TREASURE
3. ASHWA PRABHA ran well enough last week, the experienced rider has a chance on this one. CLARION CALL has run with better types, appeals on handicap. ALHOMORA has been a disappointment so far, should run well first up. KAPATHOS is being scrubbed in tracks.
ASHWA PRABHA-CLARION CALL-ALHOMORA
4. SET ALIGHT has a very mediocre opposition.
5. RED ROMEO should romp home easily despite carrying a worrying over weight. The only serious contender is COTSWOLD ARMS who is tracking fine and has an allowance jockey. TIGRESSE NOIRE is the other one who is a good type.
RED ROMEO-COTSWOLD ARMS
6. SECRET PILGRIM is a good horse with a turn of foot, will fight it out at this distance. FLASHING FLAME is a game horse over trips. IKARIA is well prepared, the distance may be a worry.
7. PENINSULA has not lived upto the expectations, needs this run. ANTONIOS is a classic hopeful who had beaten DANCING DYNAMITE and was unfortunately relegated in dubious circumstances. SOUTHER SUMMIT is the other one here who is shining in tracks and appears improved a lot. SOLID BLACK may place.
ANTONIOUS-SOUTHERN SUMMIT-SOLID BLACK
8. FORBES LIST was an easy winner who will try to repeat, the competition is weak. KATANIA is a front running type, has a handicap jockey. ANAMIKA is another speedy type. EXOTIC STAR has been a miserable failure, the handicap is a gift which may see him go close.
FORBES LIST-EXOTIC STAR-KATANIA
8. CHIEFTAIN is well bred who has been very well prepared. FEARLESS NEGOTIATOR is tracking very well, RESILIENCE showed improvement in last run. ECSTATICA is bred in blue as they say, the maiden run needs to be watched. BLACK PHANTOM is at low weights.

1. TAKE A CHANCE won in class IV , has the handicap at stiff level, the jockey may be able to pull this off. BEST OF LUCK warmed up late and won at long odds, has a decent chance here. SUBROOS has been on board, can be a place candidate. FLY AGAIN was a forward runner in BEST OF LUCK’s race, the handicap favors.
FLY AGAIN-TAKE A CHANCE-BEST OF LUCK
2. BLACK HAWK has a handicap jockey, may upset. ROMARIO was a noticeable 2nd to CONFIDENTIAL LADY, the run has bright him on. CROSSWORD was finishing on in last run, the horse is unreliable. SIRTICA drifted out while finishing 2nd, has a good chance today.
3. CHARG AWAY is getting into form as is evident from his last run. NORTHERN PRINCE is running too soon after being belted for a fighting 2nd in last run. HIGH RISING has been given runs so far, may place now. FERALIGATOR is another unreliable horse who is moody racer.
CHARG AWAY-NORTHERN PRINCE-HIGH RISING
4. DESERT FALCON took down a load of punters money in a dubious ride last time. HERO’S POWER has been tuned to perfection, the rider is suggestive. DOON BOY has a whip happy jockey, may place. WILD WIND appeals on scales.

The Colts & The Fillies Trial Stakes respectively are the feature events of the Delhi Races today. The colts race has a surprisingly small field with METALLIKA & SARIR likely to contest it out. The fillies one is likely to see ROCK ING STAR (rather hastily & may be wrongly renamed) draw most attention. The hype of this filly being a decent one was evident last week when she was a hot favorite before being withdrawn in the million event. She is likely to travel well over the winning distance as the breeding is suitable. The main challenger is likely to be DAYTONA BEAUTY who was an eye catching runner in FLYBY’s win. MRIGNAYNEE, & RITHAMBARA are also likely to put up a fight.
1. EXALTED the game aged horse is down in class and has got the in form fly weight jockey who is the darling of the crowd in recent days. DOON BOY is in fine form. SANGREAL has been prepared well, the experienced jockey is likely to ride him out in front. DARING LOVE who won well retains form.
2. . ELEGANT FASHION was given a questionable ride last time, needs to be considered again. SO FAR SO GOOD is getting into form, last run was non try one . SUPREME SUCCESS was an unlucky racer last time as he was knocked about, this aging horse can earn his 8th win today. FIXED DIVIDENT is another one who won after being braught down in scales, may get on board again.
ELEGANT FASHION-SUPREME SUCCESS
3. A study of race number 122 gives out the main contenders as it is a near repeat except that the distance is down to 1400m. INTRICATE the favorite was hard at it to collar the front running TIME GENTLEMAN who had a 5 Kg allowance rider. TRUSTED FRIEND was always thereabouts behind the two and running under the whip. BEST OF THE LOT & ASHWA PADMA were not too far behind. On the previous run and handicap after penalties it is felt that INTRICATE has an edge.
INTRICATE-TRUSTED FRIEND-BEST OF THE LOT
4. METALLIKA is half brother to KA CHING & SIROCCO , the last two runs have been under non try jockeys. The rider switch gives him a good chance. RAWSON is half brother to speedy PERSEPHONE , he is bound to improve. SARIR was ridden out in his last run where he faired better than METALLIKA, has a fight on hands now.
5. DAYTONA BEAUTY is likely to improve after the good last run. MRIGNAYNEEwas a decent 4th in million. RITHAMBARA has good initial speed, may not last the distance. ROCK ING STAR is the hype horse of the stable, she is labeled as a good type by the connections.
ROCK ING STAR-DAYTONA BEAUTY-MRIGNAYNEE
6. RHAPSODY IN RED who led from the front and won a hard faught win is up in scales. PADDINGTON has a try jockey after the last easy run. PHI is an unlucky looser who continues to remain a maiden. YONG ANNA is well prepared, the distance should be ideal for this YOUNG SENOR filly.

The feature event, THE GHULAM AHMED MEMORIAL TROPHY is likely to be
contested by KHALEEL’S PRIDE & CHAMP FOREVER. The first one is a winner of 15 races & is knocking for another win . One should not be put off by the weight assigned as he has won his last two victories with this much weight over this distance only. CHAMP FOREVER is the other son of this Hyderabad friendly sire YOUNG SENOR, who has the credentials to go for a win after an easy outing last time. Remember that MAM’s horses have started counting again in the last couple of days. DORABELLA is the youngest here who has an outside chance.
In the maiden’s races, MIGHTY PRINCE, the well bred half brother to TAANUSH & POSITANO has a good chance against the speedy GREEK FIRE & the failed favorite ADMIRE AURA, who is full brother to ADAMANT APPROACH and has the right jockey to go for a win. The second race appears to be in the control of IKI TOMBI whose efforts in last runs should install him as a mean return favorite. I may be tempted go for a double on the fresh rider C Ruzaan as well as MAM’s horses today, hoping that one of these come right though one is scared to go for a wager at this notorious racing centre which throws out surprise winners regularly.

3.STAR ALWAYS could not pace up in class I after a good win in this class, the weight is a worry. THE RISING is good on handicap, may surprise. AMBEROGGIO won all three starts in Pune, may not be able to go further. PREMIER PERCEPTION is a speedy type. The younger full brother ESHKABINYA won as a good thing yesterday. ALGO MAS was braught down in Pune, has to win this season.

4.STAR LUXURIOUS is a well bred who did not do well over distances, has a good chance. POMME DE TERRE just lost to BRAD, has a fight on hand.

5.NEED FOR SPEED was given a very poor ride on purpose last time, may regain form. ADALLIA is capoable of improving, the younger brother CALYPSO DANCER won well yesterday. VERY BONAFIDE needs to be watched this season based on some hint pf promise in last run. THANDA & BARBARA are evenly placed to win after a close run last time, BARBARA may pip THANDA who is a loosing favorite.
BARBARA-THANDA-NEED FOR SPEED
6.The maiden’s race is a mine field for speculation. The best bred are FOREST FLAIR, a full brother to promising DIVINE and son of that very good sprinter TIDE OF FORTUNE. VERSAKI is the got abroad who is showing out in works. Unfortunately ROCKEBY VENUS who was tracking eye catching at Pune has a very mediocre ageing jockey. HARMONICA is by the highly under rated sire GASWAR, she is capable of a good run as the tracks are fine..
7.AVEC PLAISIER is showing plenty of keen ness in works. RUNNING BULL appears in top condition to go all the way. ENGLEHART is speedy, may upset. JUVENTUS is the youngster in this crowd whom all have to beat, the tracks are very suggestive but handicap a bit sharp.

10. RIYASAT is a good type, has been showing out in tracks. BRAD has been impressive during Pune, should run well. ACCUMULATE impressed in his last improved run.
