1. Irrespective of the tough handicap, DANGEROUS BELLE can warm up to threaten the field which is very weak. DANCING MONEY is running for the first time in open class, the dam was a speedy type. BLACK PARTRIDGE has a task on hand, should be good for place. ABOVE ALL has come down in scales and can win on backing by the gambling stables.
ABOVE ALL-BLACK PARTREIDGE-DANGEROUS BELLE
2. MYSTERIOUS HEIGHTS could not match up to the too good PHOSPHOR, the latest track was fluent. MYTHICAL has been prepared to race after long time. FIAMMA is the other one who may benefit from the three mock races and the handicap jockey. PACIFIC ZONE may go all the way as he is a winner of three races.
PACIFIC ZONE-MYSTERIOUS HEIGHTS-MYTHICAL
3. ADAM’S LAW has been waited with for a coup. SOPHIE is looking good for a fighting finish. ALHOMORA can repeat, the speedy type looks improved. RACING DREAM is a big let down.

7. FIRST EMPIRE won pleasingly and is likely to run well at this distance also. RED DRAGON has beaten FIRST EMOIRE before. RED CHIEFTAIN is very well bred who looks best on ratings, the lack of a race run is against this good type. SEA STAR won the August handicap in a taking style and may win this scurry as the others all need a bit of distance.

General- Surprisingly there are no entries from MAM ‘S stables , also very few from Bangalore trainers. Watch out for G Nityanad, a very small time trainer whose horses have been given runs with demotion in mind at Bangalore.
1. GLINT REVELATION is being whipped and scrubbed in works. SPLENDID GLORY has a try jockey after a number of disinterested riders have given runs. STILLATO has not won for long, the field is there for the taking. CORUS has never been on board, tracks are looking encouraging.

A. The longest racing season in the country at the worst race course should get off to a start today barring rains which are threatening to play spoilsport. Why the management has never bothered to split the racing into two season’s ;ie, monsoon and winter like all other centers is just not understood. The horses, very few in numbers have been tracking for the last one month. The track looks firm and green and the local racing die- hards have been waiting for the season to commence. The condition inside stables remains as pathetic as ever with the living quarters of the trainers, jockeys and the staff looking like ghettos. Public facilities remain avoidable places to go, hygiene and cleanliness is never an agenda with the club management, wonder when the Govt will intervene and ask the club to move out like the Bangalore authorities have done. As it is the sensitivity of the neighboring complex pf the Prime Minster’s residence can always be an excuse to push the race course out to any obscure corner, why it is not been done is may be because no such vacant corners are left for the Govt to offer for the racing to be relocated.
B. The racing here is dominated by the horses belonging to breeder’s caucus and few big names as owners. The domination of trainer A Khan is as menacing as is of R Foley at Mysore. He will win the majority of races as for years gone by. There are hardly any jockeys available to take on rides, whatever few are there have no caliber whatsoever, the only reasonable rider Rajinder has not been sighted on the tracks for the last few months as he has been riding at Kolkata.
C. The opening days fair is as lack luster as one could assume. Six races framed due to very few entries for handicap races. What is very glaring is the lack of reasonable jockeys, K Narender who has been a very average jockey in last season has been entrusted with prepared mounts, let us see how much he can deliver.
1. CROSSWORD has been tracked by G Shekhawat a few times. LITTLE CUT has been scrubbed in tracks, should be tried straightaway by the sporting owner. SANGREAL has been a disappointment in most runs last season. ZIMZIR is yet to grace the board despite seven runs.
2. YARE can go start to finish, has been tracking well. CHOICE FOR EVER has not yet come to hand. SERIOUS ATTITUDE looks backward despite being brother to speedy MARCEGALIA. LADY TROOPER who has been purchased ex Mumbai is looking good in trials.
3. JEWEL HUNT has run close to three year old winners, despite the age advantage the top weight and an ailing jockey may be dampeners. FIRE QUEEN won very well last season and appears in forward condition. ZUETINA may warm up as she is at a good handicap. YOUNG ANNA impressed in gates.
4. TAKE A CHANCE is a good type who is working well. SHUB SHUB is eye catching in tracks, should go all the way. JUST LIKE A WOMAN may run well. ASHWA PADDMA has not been tracked, the weights appeal.
SHUB SHUB-ASHWA PADDMA-TAKE A CHANCE
5. LITTLE MASTER is working well. SAM ALDO looks to be in forward condition. MORE THAN A WOMAN is pleasing in works. EXOTIC STAR is a well bred who flopped at Mumbai, the present tracks are exciting.
MORE THAN A WOMAN-EXOTIC STAR-SAM ALDO
6. BEFORE YOU is a winner in higher class, the rider is back from serious injury. FIRST N IMPRESSION likes to start the season well, the tracks are forward. THE LADY IS SHADY appears to have come to hand, she is the one all have to compete against here.

SARAAH- CRITICAL ACCLAIM-SADDLER’S RULE
5. RED ROMEO won as a very good type, retains form. ESCARVOS was an easy winner in last run. PEPE JUNIOR is at an attractive handicap. RUNNING BULL can place.
RED ROMEO-PEPE JUNIOR-RUNNING BULL
6. STAR IMACT has been given a run. FEET OF FLAMES ran a good 2nd. THE RISING should be fighting out once again. CAMEO won fighting, may improve. STRATHENDRICK is down in scales, may upset.

7. DUKE OF WINDSOR is working well. OH SO ROMANTIC was a fluent winner who has a chance to repeat. HIGHLAND GLORY should be looking to win after the last 3rd to a good type. KAPATHOS had won well with this rider at Mumbai, will be tried. BELLIGERENT is in fine form.

General Comments:- 1. Yesterday some of the bookies and” khabar “seeking punters were badly done in by a piece of misinformation that Ramu had eaten HUMBLE GUY which had opened around 60 to 100 on in the morning. At race time the horse opened around 75 to 100 On and soon there was a mad rush to eat it as a good thing based on the misinformation about the owner. The rates got upto past even money when again there was news of it having been backed by Ramu at better odds. Not every one could judge the real thing and lot many wise cracks had to pay heavily when the horse won as a good thing. Many of the book operators did not show any interest in the last race after having been had by the Ramu double.
2. The races for the day should be a delight for the followers of breeding since some very well bred horses are participating today. We have the brother and sisters of PHENOMENALE, DIEGO RIVIERA, SET ALIGHT, CELTIC PRINCESS, AUTONOMY, HUMBLE GUY, STAR WAVE, GLORIOUS BAY , STAR PERFECTION and RUNNING BULL running in 3 year old races.
3. As expected by most trainer N LAGAD has not been able to go ahead with his customary wins at Pune this year. His horses won under some ordinary jockeys before but now even with the flown in jockey not many of his trainees are impressive enough to consider that he will be able to step ahead.
1. GRACES got piped at the post in last run, this well bred may win now. RAN BAKA is a speedy type from a trainer whose horses come to hand mostly as four year olds. SECRET AGENDA has been in fighting line, should be trying to win. STELLAR AFFAIR is working well.

4. WEIZHOU deserves respect for the speed he is displaying in tracks, the preparation is good. CAVAR DOSSI has an allowance jockey, should like the trip. GO GUZZI GO is a decent stayer. CHOTEE BEGUM is a hype horse, looks out of depth here.
5. ANGELO is brother to GENTLE KNIGHT, the mock race should have helped. ONASSIS is brother to HIGHLASND CROWN and DIEGO RIVIERA, the tracks are good. RIVER KINIGHT is brother to SET ALIGHT, ht e trainer has not been able to get him in shape so far, by this time last year the elder sister was already a winner of crores.

TREASURE ISLE-ONASSIS-RIVER KNIGHT
6. AUTOCRAT is brother to HUMBLE GUY, the tracks are good. MIGHTY CRUSADER comes into reckoning on his last run at Mumbai, looks good here as he has been waited with for this million event, could have easily won a maiden earlier. SEE THE STAR has also been waited with for the same reasons, the last effort behind Bangalore Derby winner JACQUILINE gives him a decent chance. TORA BORA failed badly as a favorite, the trainer has taken lots of pains with this paternal brother to VERSAKI. FIRE STREAK is tracking fluently. GLORIA ran a mighty race at Mumbai, has an outside chance to place as she is half sister to good type RUNNING BULL.
MIGHTY CRUSADER-SEE THE STAR-TORA BORA
7. CLASSIC STAR has been well tracked. KAI may run well here. KA CHING is an unreliable type, won well in the opener last year at Pune. ADALLIA impressed in last win.

HERE COMES THE DON-RED DAWN-CLASSIC STAR
8. RIVER BLITZ failed as a favorite, the brother to BEE QUICK has stiff handicap. LYRICAL LASS ran away from all under a non try jockey, should be backed with confidence now. EXCITING STORY is in fine nick, the tracks are suggestive. ONUS PROBANDI won well, may try to repeat.

The Main Mysore Season appears to be as daft as the regular Mysore racing calendar as a very ordinary card caters for the opening day’s fare. Intriguingly most trainer’s from Bangalore have decided not to field their runners here, as per the Govt’s stand there is a bleak chance of having races in winters at Bangalore, the sufferers are the owners who have a worrying prospect of shifting around to other racing centres or selling their wards. Another major factor to be considered by the racing public will be whether the horses from M A M’s stables continue their domination at races like before or will they also run on unexpected lines as the owner’s animals have done at Bangalore and most other centres of racing in the last six months. It is my sincere advise to back his horses only in the last few minutes before the start as often the offered rates fluctuate so much as to make mockery of the fine sport.
1. MAMAN MARVEL is a four year old who should have matured after 10 non performance outings, has to be watched now. MAURITIUS STAR is a winner of 5 races who may yet find the board. KALISKA has been tracking fine, should be tried. FIERY BUSINESS has a decent jockey, may be the gamble horse of the connections today. WOLF tends to loose interest in the final stages of the race.
2. DO THE MUSIC has a load to carry, may place. PRINCE OF ARGYLE is a failed favorite, he is tracking well. TURBANATOR can upset any day, has come down a lot. RAGING RIVER has not been running as per the good tracks.. SAN GIMMINANAO may place.

3. BRIDGE TOO FAR has been tracking well, has lots of early speed. SMART N SPECIAL is an enigma for the trainer, it does every thing but wins. ECUADOR has been well prepared. HEROISM has come down a lot. SUGAR BROWN has been impressive in works, has not performed for long.
ECUADOR-SMART N SPECIAL-SUGAR BROWN
4. THUNDER ON has won at these weights and this distance before. BIRTDAY STAR has been well rested, it was a failure two years back when racing in the regular circuit. Like most other horses brought out of wilderness and recouping at Ooty he may start off the proceedings for the connections as the tracks and gates are encouraging. SERIOUS WARRIOR may build up on the fine win in last run. TURBO BABE has been tracking well.
BIRTHDAY STAR-TURBO BABE-SERIOUS WARRIOR
5. RAIDER’S SON has been a different horse last season, the handicap is very stiff now. AURILEAN is a speedy horse who should have come on after running with better types. ASSOCIATOR had won handsomely last year, the present tracks of this well bred are good. KALPAV RUKSHA is in good form. DANGER DIABOLIC may surprise.
6. OHIYESA is perhaps the best from this trainer’s yard in the youngster’s lot, has been working well. MR MAJESTIC has come to hand, may run well. STAR ADVENTURE is brother to SILKEN LINES who showed out here last year, the tracks are speedy. BEE FOR YOU may place.
