BANGALORE OPENING DAY RACES
A VERY TRICKY CARD AND LACK OF INDICATORS AND FORM BE CONSIDERED. THE CENTRE ALSO SUFFERS FROM PEOPLE LIKE NC RAI WHO BULLDOZES HIS WAY WITH TRAINERS AND RIDERS TO MANIPULATE HIS WINNERS
1. BLESSED ONE is working regularly.CALL ME MAY BE has been shown gates, but no tracks. MOON BLINK from a very ordinary mare is showing ot with speedy display in gates and will run well. SIYOUNI has raced weakly so far, has a better rider now. ZAFRAN has disappointed a lot in her runs, is tracking impressively.
2. ROCK N ROLLA impressed in last win under a work jockey, will run well. FLYING BULLET finished late, has a weaker rider now. LUC DIVINE is going with a foreign rider, has a chance at this handicap/ ARZIKI was interfered with and has a good chance to score with this rider.
LUC DIVINE (5)/ ROCK N ROLA(2)-PLACE.
3. WATCHMYSCRIPT has been nicely prepared, won last start in good style. REFERENCE has been catching the eye with smart tracks under this rider. SUMMER HILL is from an ordinary bred mare, has moved attractively, last couple of rune were weak.TOWERING HEIGHTS pleased in last win, has to dig out extra over the mile.MAGISTERO from the schemers stable has worked well, the half brother to MUROI has the rider to deliver at low weights.
4. ABOVE THE REST can run well inspite of the work jockey. SZABLE is a top bred who races after long, may have been prepared discretely. RARE RYTHM has been working nicely and has looked improved. ROCKET MAN had flopped as a hot favorite, has not been sighted in tracks.
RARE RYTHM(8)/ABOVE THE REST(1)-PLACE.
