DELHI RACES


1. ASHWA SHAURIYA , a full brother to RAPID FIRE & LIZZIE BORDEN is impressive in tracks, the connections who have done well in last one year would be fancying their chances here as well as to make an auspicious beginning once again. TAKE A CHANCE is working well in company of KERRY BLUE, the dam was a speedy type. AMITY should have benefited from the run. OUTSTANDING has a lot of stable hype but has been so so in tracks. The pedigree is disappointing as the elder CRYSTAL PISTOL has not been able to win in Delhi & the first foal GUTSY LADY had also failed to get on board.

What a pity that SMART CONTENDER, a full brother to SWEEPING SUCCESS & LADY ONE who is shining out in tracks has been entrusted to a feeble jockey ; that means the other one from the stable with Prakash astride must be too good.

TANZANITE is full sister to CHAGGAL, the pedigree is precocious. NOBLE SACRIFICE is notable in works.

1. MAM Ramaswamy has a habit of winning the inaugural race for juveniles at this centre. Many years back even Samar Singh had done the same for three continuous years with horses belonging to my family. Today also it looks to be a race between the two with MISTY MOONLIGHT shining above the others based on the superb pedigree & the excellent gate practice. IDAR PRINCESS is showing lots of initial speed as she is by a mare who won three sprints in Mumbai. RASHIDA is the other filly in field who is promising in tracks, the full sister to the useful SOLID SUCCESS has a mediocre jockey though.

MISTY MOONLIGHT-IDAR PRINCESS

2. ACTION HERO has run in higher class, he has a forceful jockey to also. AMAZING FLORA was kept far back when racing last time as a favorite, the top stable jockey may run her differently . ASPIRING SEVEN is badly off on handicap, he likes to hit the front. EVERYTHING NICE is good in tracks, should run an improved race.

ACTION HERO-EVERYTHING NICE-AMAZING FLORA

3. EDMONDO is showing out in tracks, it is due for a win as it has been sparingly raced. LET THE RIVER RUN is moving well in tracks. EXCELLENT ABILITY is well bred who appears improved a lot. VOICE OF INDIA placed for first time in last run, may do so again.

EXCELLENT ABILITY-EDMONDO-VOICE OF INDIA

EL GORDO wins when not expected, has been tracked constantly. MY FRIEND PAUL has been handled very poorly in the last couple of seasons as the trainers had their own problems. FREE MASON has the handicap in favor, may need a run.

ALGIERS-MY FRIEND PAUL-FREE MASON

5. BOURBON KING, the champion horse of last year appears fit, it is carrying a load & can not be supported based on the poor runs in summers. HOLDING COURT needs to settle down to racing before its potential as of now is known. LION HEART is this years top older horse over this distance. VANQUISH is impressive in tracks.

SECRET PILGRIM-IKARIA

5. OYSTER GEM is fine with handicap, the jockey is poor. THE BRAVE HEART has come down in class, can go all the way. RING BEAREDR was an impressive runner last time. STELLAR AFFAIR is a front runner who fizzles out when into the straight.

RING BEARER-THE BRAVEHEART

DISTANT THUNDER-SARKAR

2. BLACK CHETAK is one of the good speedy types who has been worked very regularly by this rider in mornings, the only negative is the trainer who is not regarded as a clean professional. STRIVING HIGHER has an allowance jockey. GALLOPING GOLD MINE & DIVINE THUNDER are both maintaining form, now running in higher class.

BLACK CHETAK-DIVINE THUNDER

3. ASHWA PADDMA is tight on handicap, the tracks show keen spirit. ORIENTAL SPEED is a top bred who has the experienced stable jockey. DREAM DEBUT was a faraway 2nd to a superior youngster in last attempt. BEFORE YOU could not justify the handicap as a favorite in last run, has a stronger jockey now.

6. DANCING GLORY is tracking well. BLUE MOUNTAIN was beaten fair & square by SALTORO in the earlier part of the season, the track appears to have firmed up since & with added distance he should go very close this time as he is by the top sire Razeen. NORA flopped in last run curiously, can not be backed based on that effort. SALTORO who ran decently in last run despite a severe interference looks good on handicap.

NITROUS has been bringing the pack into the straight before fading out in last few runs. SILVER TERN has been running at tail end in all his efforts, the age is obvious negative.

PHENOMENALE , the costliest purchase won like a champion, it can beat the favorite based on its outstanding Sire MONTEJEU’s credentials.

PHENOMENALE-DANCING DYNAMITE

7. WAHY was a runaway winner who is maintaining form. MISCHEVIOUS TROT is a sparingly raced horse, it had beaten WAHY conceding loads of weight in Mumbai.

SILVER GIRL won well but has extra distance to worry about. SUN DANCER would stay but has the handicap against him. KERRY BLUE has a good chance to score if she stays.

KERRY BLUE-HIGH OPINION

1. The joke will be on the punters in the first race as all the acceptors belong to the same trainer. What a farce to be faced, yet the chore has to be gone through. VAGABOND is definitely not the best horse but has the top stable jockey. CRYSTAL PISTOL looks the best but has the worst aging jockey available in Delhi. DARING LOVE has been a big failure after the hype over its breeding.

VAGABOND-CRYSTAL PISTOL

2. GORGEOUS BLUE who has placed twice is tracking well & has the services of a try jockey. STRIVING HIGHER is an aged horse who is badly placed on handicap. FAURTIES will be in bussiness at this handicap.

YANA(2)-GRUEZI(1)

6. LIL MISS SUNSHINE is showing out in tracks, does not appeal on pedigree as Ontario has produced sprinters only so far. RAGS TO RICHES was an easy 4th, the rider switch by ‘ once in a blue moon’ type stable is noticeable. VARUN & JOHNNY BRAVO have both won under these very riders respectively at these very weights over this very distance before.
