After a long time all the favorites bit the dust at Bangalore yesterday, may be it was the heavy rains or the elliptical approach of Mars who is coming nearer to earth by thousands of miles everyday.
1. TRILLION WIN ran like a donkey when fancied as a favorite in last run, the field is even poorer today yet it is difficult for the rider to reverse the result in such a short time. SHUBHA is sparingly raced from this enigma of a trainer whose LESTER won at very big odds yesterday. YOU’RE MAGNIFIQUE is from a betting owner who hides the true form of his runners in prep races. ATTATURK is running for 43 rd time, the trainers formula of running every week and keeping the horse fit works out at times , the horse had won under this rider at 61 Kgs in this class, looks like all have to chase him at these favorable weights today.
2. WALTZ AWAY impressed in last effort, the son of a decent sire has come to hand. THE DARLING BOY should be fighting for places. OCEAN PRINCE is working into form, has a chance to place. EMERALD is a tail swisher, she is looking good when seen in light of last few runs, may be fancied on that score.
WALTZ AWAY-EMERALD-THE DARLING BOY
3. LEGEND REBORN has finally been sold by the owner to the trainer after the foolish exercise of trying him under a useless jockey to get odds, will run better now. CARNIVAL OF JOY has been waited with by the trainer, should like the short trip .RAINBOW RISING can sprint well here, has been worked by this horse keeper type trainer who has primary instructions only to look after the fitness of his wards. SUMMERWINE has a rookie who may get him to race upfront.
CARNIVAL OF JOY-RAINBOW RISING-LEGEND REBORN
4. Why the trainer keeps giving good mounts to this very mediocre jockey baffles me, he lost a certain race on LOVE ME TENDER yesterday and today the in form horse MODERN ART has to suffer him. BORN TO FLY will be fancied on breeding and the fine fighting win in last run, the step up in trip is steep. REZOOM is a failed favorite over 1800m, gets a chance to redeem failure. SPARK OF ATAN has tracked well over staying trips, the cross between Placerville and a Razeen mare should be encouraging the connections to score at good odds at this distance. GOLDEN QUEST is from that wonderful mare STUNNING, the last win was comfortable.
GOLDEN QUEST-SPARK OF ATAN-BORN TO FLY
5. PALAZZIO’S SON has the speed to go away today, the last run was suggestive. CAPTIVATING was done in by the lack of a race run, should improve. ORIGINALITY may place, the tracks are good. BHAGIRATHI has improved with each run, may upset.
6. TRUE IMPRESSION has been showing out in tracks like most from this below average trainer, I do not know what he did to his ward yesterday as the good on paper, THE SENATOR was being eaten at all odds by the bookies, today TRUE IMPRESSION does not inspire any confidence from me. SOUND BET has been given runs, may score. ACT OF DUTY impressed in gates, has not won for long. POWER GRID defied the predictions of most by a surprisingly easy win, may encore. PERSIAN PRINCESS is a failed favorite , the jockey had handled her tenderly.
ACT OF DUTY-SOUND BET-POWER GRID
7. LEONARDO is an enigma, remains a maiden who promised much without delivering. STAR ASSEMBLY was given a laid back run, needs to be persisted with. LUSH LASHES runs too soon after the last win. OBAN may run on board. NATIVE TALENT has scales in favor, does not run as per expectations.
STAR ASSEMBLY-NATIVE TALENT-OBAN
8. SKYDIVER needed the run when failing as a favorite. SOUTH PARADISE is coming round to scoring soon. BORN TO PERFORM has worked well. NOT NOT SEVEN has scales in favor to make a race of it
SKYDIVER-NOT NOT SEVEN-BORN TO PERFORM
DAYS BEST====PALLAZIO’S SON

1. AMERICUS is a well bred who has scope to improve, has a weak jockey. SUN STONE is by the aging sire, can not be fancied in first run despite the jockey. VERNASTRUS has finished a long way 3rd in class iv, should run well here. LOVE ME TENDER was backed down at miserly odds over a scurry, despite being the son of a staying sire, the horse should now be backed as the trip is ideal and the tracks show fitness to strike.
LOVE ME TENDER-VERNASTORUS-SUN STONE
2. A MOVE TO REMEMBER is a speedy type who impressed in last win and is maintaining good form. SUPER GOLD won all the way indicating a repeat performance. ADMIRANDA was in betting order in last run, doesn’t look in form. IRISH MINT has the jockey and low weights, has been a flop so far.

SHOTGUNN is a game 1400 horse who is maintaining good form, last run was very suggestive. CAMELOT has been a changed horse this season, has the best new apprentice jockey to guide. POLIS PATRIOT is pleasing in tracks, the trip is ideal.
SHOTGUNN- EQUIDAE-POLISH PATRIOT
6. FANTABULOUS PRINCE can place, has a habit of some good and bad runs in tandem.

MUSIC FOREVER impressed in gates, may be tried. SPARK OF ISIS is at ideal handicap, should go all the way.
SPARK OF ISIS-LOGAN’S RUN-MUSIC FOREVER
7. KINGDOM OF DREAMS is a flop from a backward stable. THE SENATOR is tracking attractively and with this rider has a good chance. TIME FLIES has been running in and out, not a good proposition despite the last win. SWEET SURRENDER looked impressive in gates, has form to go by. MR PRESIDENT can build on the last run.
THE SENATOR-SWEET SURRENDER-MR PRESIDENT
8. ASTOUNDING BLUE has a strong rider, can run well despite the top weight. ON A ROLL was kept too far back in last run, change of tactics is required as he can score. BID FOR GLORY may place as the try jockey has a forceful finish. ZANZARA is at ideal handicap for upset. PANCHAKSHRI is a speedy one who is due to shock over a sprint. YOUR DESTINY is working well.

ROMANTIC DESIGN is a failed favorite, can not be considered for win after the poor performance last time. TRACK WONDER has a decent jockey, the penalty for last win is harsh.

3. MISS RUBY has fooled the system by reeling off two easy wins, after a couple of lethargic efforts, the present handicap is stiff and the rookie may not hold on despite the filly’s early speed. YANKEE LANE was an impressive winner who has the credentials for a repeat effort. LOOK ALIKE won in last stride due to the jockey’s effort, looks too tough now. PLACE HER WELL is due to win, last run was below par. NATIVE STRATEGY had finished on from the tail end, the shorter trip may not suit.

SALONI was an easy winner, in winters she was caught and passed by SUN DANCING. MAGESTERIAL was the talk horse on Derby Day with his striking runaway win, the well bred has the potential to beat them all if ridden well by this mediocre jockey who likes to hurry things up a trifle too early. SUN DANCING was given a loosing ride last time, can deliver today with the turn of foot of winters.

AGENT ARCHIE was an easy runner who looks improved.
SUN SPIRIT-SMART WAYS-AGENT ARCHIE
8. DUKE OF EDINBURGH was an impressive winner, the horse is at a bad handicap as far as I am concerned, may defy if he is so good and the cousin Harish decides to go easy on his mount.

DUTCHESS OF YORK-THE DARLING BOY-SPARK OF MYSTERY
2. SOUTHERN PEARL has not run for long, appears to have some set back and can not be considered despite the good jockey. POWER GRID appears to have settled down to race smoothly. CHESTERFORD TOUCH has been poorly handled by the trainer who has often failed to exploit the handicap of his wards, this one has a chance based on some good tracks. ATTATURK has come down a lot, has won at higher weights last year.
CHESTERFORD TOUCH-POWER GRID-SOUTHERN PEARL
3. AILSA has tracked very well and looks good based on last few runs, the sire has been a big failure thus far. RECHARGED belongs to a poorly performing trainer, the tracks are encouraging.

SOCIAL CLIMBER should be fighting out based on last run. TIME FLIES has tracked very well, belongs to a sly owner, handicap suits. SWEET TIMER can place here.
TIME FLIES-BEST TIME-SOCIAL CLIMBER
5. LADY DUFF has age on side, has plenty of speed. MAGNANIMITY has run encouraging races, the jockey switch may be the factor today. SOBERANO may run on board in current form. STONE OF DESTINY is a game sprinter.

In the absence of true indicators of merit of the horses due to the long break , shifting from Mumbai to the grassier and wet environment of Pune, lack of track work, preparation of horses at private farms enroute etc, one has to be careful in selecting which horse to back. The placement of top riders, well bred horses and offcourse the flow of money should be taken into account in the initial part of the season.
1. POUND FOOLISH-IJLAL-BLUSH
2. CALYPSO DANCER-UNTOUCHED-SECRET TALK
4. SERENITY-SUN ELEGANCE-THREE OF ARTS
5. SEA VALUE-BLUE THUNDER-SWEPT AWAY

1. ACTOR was a notable runner who lost a certain race due to drifting out under a weak jockey. HI HENNIKEN has age on side, should be considered in this poor field. BREED APART is still a maiden who has bad gate habits. LOOKING TO LUCK was slowly away, can do well. ARYANSH has a handicap chance. MAJOR IMPRESSION is at bottom of scales, a very old maiden in racing.
ACTOR-HI HENNIKEN-LOOKING TO LUCK
2. SWISS QWEEN has to deal with the penalty for the last win. REFUSE TO BEND fooled the handicapper by winning out of turn, difficult to see a repeat performance from the wards of small time trainers. BLOOD STREAM is coming to hand, should improve. MASTER YODA is one of the longer odds who may do damage. STAMPEDE is impressive in tracks. COLLATERAL has been sharpened up well and after the shortish trip when unnecessarily fancied he needs to be backed now..
3. YOU’RE MY LUV is coming around to the mark. CHAMPION’S LEAGUE is working very well. PLACE HER WELL is due to score, the last run was below par. SKYFLEET was running after long and with a useless jockey, back him now. WILD TEMPER is the infamous horse who is being waited with. HERE COMES THE DON has the don of riders in this field, the horse may oblige.
SKYFLEET-PLACE HER WELL-HERE COMES THE DON
4. MISS RUBY was an outstanding winner in a poor field, being a youngster can repeat. ELEMENTTO STYLE was backed with lots of enthusiasm but bled in the race, the tracks are suggestive of recovery. GOOD SPEED has been given an educational run. MATTER OF OPINION ran well enough last time. Can not consider KORPORATE, what is the good jockey being used for?
MISS RUBY-ELEMENTTO STYLE-GOOD SPEED
5. DARE DON would have welcomed a bit more of distance, yet has a chance. PERFECT BOND had slip of saddle in last run, may improve. NERMAI is in good form to repeat. TINA’S TRIUMPH is a game horse at low weights.

Posted by Sarat Sharma at 12:05 PM
1. SKY MARTIAL was a gallant 2nd, beaten by a good type in last run, has the services of the top fly in jockey.

SENOR SPEEDY is aptly named, the tracks are very fast, the half brother to Derby winner FULL SPEED has a good jockey. KIRTLING is a bought in who has the services of the best jockey, needs this run.
SENOR SPEEDY- BORN TO FLY- SKY MARTIAL

LEADING LADY can race well if she breaks out level. I WANNA DANCE has a chance to place. ATOMIC QUEEN has been given easy runs, has weights in favor.
SKY CONTROL-ROYAL SURPRISE-LEADING LADY
3. SKY DIVER is a well bred who won impressively in winters, this season he has tracked well, the mock race effort was easy, will be fighting out. VALAHAK is maintaining form, the trainer is not reliable. SUPREMACY led till beaten in last run, is in fighting shape. FOSWELL has been backwards so far.
4. MAGISTERIAL is full brother to the celebrated BOURBON KING, he is tracking very well and the mock race was suggestive. CON ARTISTE belongs to a trainer who is having a bad run with favorites, should improve on last effort. SPARK OF DESIRE has worked well and is likely to improve after the last easy run. WYNDHAM has been tracked well, may show out.
MAGESTERIAL-CON ARTISTE-SPARK OF DESIRE
5. SKY TRAIN is shining in tracks, the breeding commands respect. INDIAN BOLT was a runaway winner who faces class horses now, the tracks are suggestive. ARYA VEER won well but disappointed in graded event, may get on board. SKYLINER is a good type who is at lower weights against the stable mate.
SKY LINER-SKY TRAIN-INDIAN BOLT
6. YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL has been meticulously prepared, the mock race was good, handicap is stiff and the top jockey has a fight on hand. MOTHER’S PRIDE is getting into form, the trip suits. SANS PAREIL is at a good handicap and is working extremely well, the rider is ordinary. LOCK AND LOAD is a good handicapper. TOPKAPI is a failed favorite from the lower class.
SANS PAREIL-YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL-LOCK AND LOAD
7. TANZANITE is retaining form, has to beat the handicap. POLISH PATRIOT had run after long and won, now he has the youngsters trio to beat . EAGLE CLAWS was a poor runner in the FTS, wonder how it beat SIACHEN before that? LOVE CONQUERS ALL has run well with heavier weights, has a turn of foot and can make a race of it at low weights. APRILLIA is the hype filly who is blazing the grass in mornings, she looks in good condition but is shy of race run.
LOVE CONQUERS ALL-POLISH PATRIOT- APRILLIA
8. IMMENSE has made the owner pay a whopping final entry fee, the trip should be a bother. VIJAY MAONARCH should run well as he was a close 4th in CTS. SUN KINGDOM is the only unbeaten horse here who was very impressive in all wins, trip may be the essential factor for this son of ROYAL KINGDOM whose wards do well with a cut in the ground. MOONLIGHT ROMANCE was half prepared when it lost last time, the filly has a good turn of foot, the rider is best for the job. ELOISE has improved with each run, can not be ruled out.
MOONLIGHT ROMANCE –SUN KINGDOM-IMMENSE
9. HAMPTON COURT has run some fair races , may surprise. KICKING KING was unlucky to loose last time, the strong riding will see him fight out. DEVIL GRANDMA was an improved runner last time.

TRUE IMPRESSION-CASH IS KING-STAR NEWS
DAYS BEST====SUN CONTROL
DOUBLE======MAGESTERIAL X SOUTHERN KING
Posted by Sarat Sharma at 11:05 AM
1. ENDURANCE is working well, may place. PRINCESS COUP was a forward runner in last attempt, has a positive jockey switch. METHODICAL had run encouraging races in winters, the first run of the season should be ignored, the half sister to STILLWILL is ready to strike. LOVE ME TENDER belongs to a trainer who must be wondering what has gone wrong this season, he has only won with one favorite; ie, BECKET at miserly odds, six other favorites of this trainer have bitten the dust. The filly is owned by an old hand owner from Western India and will be fancied strongly based on some encouraging tracks.
METHODICAL-LOVE ME TENDER-PRICESS COUP
2. CROWN VISION was done in by the poor riding of Srinath at the beginning of the season, the well bred has been decently worked and looks good here. SPARKLING CAT has been given a run. CHAMPS ELYSEES has a weak rider. TRILLION WIN has shown lot of speed in trials, the last poor run is a dampener.

LA CLIQUE-ONE FOR THE MONEY-ADONIS
4. SUNRAY is tracking well, the trip suits. BLACKSUPERSTAR was in betting order but ran pathetically in last attempt. ROYAL PRODIGY has been tracked fine by this good rider, may outride the weak lot. GOLDEN DIXIE was a fighting 3rd, the trainer is unreliable if public fancies his wards. SPARK OF GALAXY has done nothing worthwhile so far, the last track was good.
ROYAL PRODIGY-BLACK SUPER STAR-SPARK OF GALAXY
5. BRUNETTA has tracked well, last run was easy, positive rider switch is noticeable. APPOLONAIRE has been given a couple of educational runs. MERCUTIO has a strong rider, but will he be on the job? In winters this horse had beaten CAPTAIN’S LOVER who now goes at a better handicap. The placement of the rider on CAPTAIN’S LOVER is very indicative as this rider has been winning mostly for Dominic trained horses for number of years. MYSTERE retains form.
6. ABOLINE is the local champion horse of last year, he beat them all including the wonder filly JAQUELINE last year, the worry is the weights he is conceding now. SPRINT STAR is a pure miler. PALAZZIO’S SON appears to be going over a longer trip than what he likes. CELESTIAL WAY was a surprise winner who is tracking very well. D’ARTAGNAN is a game sprinter, was being fancied last time.

SUN DANCING-CIEL INDIENNE-STRING ALONG
8. RUGGED BEAUTY has an allowance jockey, she is working well. GLITERRATO has tracked well and the last run was easy. KRIPA is at a good handicap to upset if the secretive trainer backs him. SWEET SURRENDER is working very well, the rider is average. SPARK OF BRONTE can be in thick of things in the competitive field.
9. SOVIET MELODY is in good form. ITS MY PARTY has an outside chance. SKY RIDER has not been able to reproduce the winter good runs. SMARTWAYS has been well tracked, can go all the way. LEGEND REBORN was denied a win by the poorly executed gamble in last run.
SMART WAYS-SKY RIDER-LEGEND REBORN
DAYS BEST===CROWN VISION
DOUBLE-------SUN DANCING X SMART WAYS
Posted by Sarat Sharma at 10:50 AM
1. TIME IS PRECIOUS has won over this distance during the season and is at a stiff handicap now, tracks are good. MR SUNRISE is working very well, the rider can deliver in this field of oldies. JERICHO has not won for long, has been given number of runs, can upset. ROTA ROOA has sprinted mostly in all his earlier runs but this season he is doing well over the longish trip, should place again. WIN PRETTY BABY has won twice in main circuit, has not run for long, may be a surprise forward runner as the trip suits.
MR SUNRISE-JERICHO-ROTA ROOA
2. RICH ROUGE goes over the ideal trip, has been inconsistent, does well on backing by the outstation owner, may do so today. ROYAL VIEW runs every week and brings in some money, will be trying again. ARABIAN MEMORIES has been given runs, runs against the stable mate as the doosra, the trainer is suspended like his elder brother, may fancy his horse today at better odds before the appeal is sorted out. FINAL FRONTIER has been on a reducing mission, the rider is mediocre. BUCETHALIS runs as a good thing on paper, had won handsomely last time, worry may be the intentions of the three BOSTON RANGER brothers, the rider, the trainer and the actual trainer.
BUCETHALIS-RICH ROUGE-ARABIAN MEMORIES
3. SKYFLEET returns from set back, needs this run. SUPER SPEED has been a dilemma, fizzled out after much promise and has taken loads of money own the drain over last three years, can win here in the weak set up, the tracks are suggestive. LOOK ALIKE was a very impressive runner over a longish ride last time, can go all the way now. WORLD IS TOO MUCH has no tracks after the last suggestive run. REGENT’S PARK has been given easy runs, should be in hunt today.
LOOK ALIKE-REGENT’S PARK-SUPER SPEED
4. MYSTIC ENCHANTRESS is no match to her elder brother OHIYESA, the youngster has yet to impress. NANO BLUE has a try jockey and has handicap chance for the trip. BOLD SUCCESS has been in wilderness for very long, tracks are there for consideration. NEW PASTURES has a try jockey for ideal distance. STIKIEWICKETDOTCOM comes into reckoning based on last run after the slide down the scales.
STIKEIEWICKETDOTCOM-NEW PASTURES-NANO BLUE
5. LOOKING TO LEAD is dead on comparison, the last run was eye catching. BOSTON RANGER has the jockey who had won on this one very impressively last year, watch the money flow. RED DAWN is tracking well, the distance is a big worry. THE WORLD IS MINE is a good type, has been prepared well, ideal trip is 1400 m. LIVE IT UP should be fighting out after the last good win under this jockey.
BOSTON RANGER-LIVE IT UP-THE WORLD IS MINE
6. CLASSIC CONCEPT was an easy winner and should do well again. DEL GRATIA was a surprise winner, has age on side, the sly trainer has not tracked him? JUST GREAT was looking relaxed in the easy run, will win soon. THE ROLLS had drifted in odds yet finished on very well to take the race, has to beat the handicap for an encore. SPARK OF SYMPHONY is an unreliable type, has weights in favor.

Posted by Sarat Sharma at 10:43 AM
1. BUGATTI GABRIELLA has been well prepared, may be tried or on first run in Hyderabad. INSPIRATOR has credentials to place.

SUPER GOLD-SANDALWOOD STAR-ALL RISE
5. THE LAST SAMMURAI is a stayer but with heavy impost , can finish on. STAR PRESENCE has run well in winters, may be tried for place. NATIVE TALENT has been held back and given loosing runs, with the top jockey it will be clear whether he is unreliable or has been waited with by the bookie friendly trainer. MODERN ART ran a forward race amongst youngsters and will be fancied based on that run.
NATIVE TALENT-MODERN ART-STAR PRESENCE
6. BECKET is much improved after the last win, should win at cramped odds. ONASSIS is hiding true potential, may be a wait for Pune season. SPARK OF GOLD is in fine form to run well. SPEARHEAD has won both races in style, has handicap against.
BECKET-SPARK OF GOLD-SPEARHEAD

FROZEN FIRE looks short of work, needs the run. READY TO MINGLE has the weights very much in favor, should win if backed by the ageing owner.
READY TO MINGLE-CLASSIC CHARGE-LADS GLADIATOR
8. SUN ZONE can place at good odds. YOU’RE WONDERFUL fought out in the last run, has the good jockey. ROYAL PLAYER has been consistent and is due for a win. POETIC has beaten them all when she was in form, the handicap may be exploited by the poorly fairing stable.
ROYAL PLAYER-YOU’RE WONDERFUL-POETIC
9. FLAMING LAMBHORGINI has been a money spinner for the trainer, he is a versatile type. ROMANCE IN THE AIR has a handicap chance, the trip suits. ALPHA BABY ran very well despite the saddle slip, can go all the way. CHINTZ has a chance to fight out.
ALPHA BABY-ROMANCE IN THE AIR-FLAMING LAMBHORGINI
DOUBLE----NATIVE TALENT X READY TO MINGLE
Posted by Sarat Sharma at 11:28 AM
1. WORK FORCE, AMERICUS & AVESCO are three runners from D Khaitan’s collection. WORK FORCE has the confidante jockey and is being scrubbed in works, has a reasonable pedigree. AVESCO was given an easy ride last time and now runs with the inform jockey, has the impeccable sire and fine bloodlines, the brother to GLORIOSA looks vastly improved in tracks. SUN DAWN has been well prepared by the small time trainer, may run for place. HI LIFE is moderately bred but has the best rider, the tracks are fast.

FIORUCCI is working well, the sire is average but the dam was decent type.
DON DIEGO-SCIONIC-SEASIDE STAR
3. STAR GLEAM belongs to one of the average trainers, had finished on well last time, now suffers a poor rider on top, clearly the intentions are vicious. ENCHANTING BEAUTY belongs to an even worse trainer, has given glimpses of potential, may win under this jockey on backing. ATTATURK is from a scheming trainer who gives horses runs every week, has come down to a wining mark. PRINCE NORBERT is from the most controversial trainer, the horse is still a maiden, has been backed often, may run on board as there is a rider switch.
ENCHANTING BEAUTY-STAR GLEAM-PRINCE NORBERT
4. SOUTHERN GLADIATOR has been bought down in class, has worked very well, last run needs to be ignored. DEVIL GRANDMA has physical problems, may run well. INSPIRED MOVE maintains form, will try to repeat. NOT NOT SEVEN has tracked well.

GRAND TOPAZ-SKY DRIVE-YOU’RE KISSES DUE

8. MAN DOWN UNDER may place, the jockey is non winning type. ENDURING SPEED may run well. DIVINE STRIKE is maintaining form. NOBEL BREEZE is working well, last run was forward under a non try jockey. TRILLION WIN is a morning glory, has been worked hard regularly.
