DELHI RACES


The race card for Delhi gives the feel of Gymkhana races with 50% races in the lowest class where it is most difficult to separate the hopefuls from hidden schemers.

1. BLACK VIRGIN is a speedy one who should run well in the first run of season, can upset. ENGLISH POWER is tracking well. FOROZAAN has the benefit of a close run in the season’s opening day, may score now. CONQUEROR’S FLAME returns from injury , may be waited with for check on fitness. MANTHARA has come down to scratch and has now been scrubbed in tracks, should place.

3. KA CHING is an aged horse who may throw in challenge with a forward attempt. LILY is a youngster who is tracking well and should win easily here, the rider has to hold his nerves. DEV PUTRA has worked well. JOVIAL is the speedy one who has handicap in favor, but expecting Raza to score twice so quickly will be two much.

LILY-DEV PUTRA.

4. FEARLESS TIGER won in a very close heap, it will be difficult for this better rider to defy the penalty. LITTLE CUT has been given a run, has speed to do well with the allowance rider. TEZ RAFTAAR is tracking fine. MALABAR GOLD has done good in work outs, may surprise. HAPPY GO LUCKY is the other one from the same stables as the first and second mentioned, has an ordinary jockey to build on last fair effort.

LITTLE CUT-MALABAR GOLD-BEST OF LUCK.

5. ASHWA PAYALIA and PACE MAKER have won in higher class before, last week both ran like duds, improvement may be expected. ROSE is looking in fine trim and has age on side. FASCINATING MEMORY has won at these weights before. AIR FORSE ONE ran well below expectations, may defy logic and do well.

ROSE-AIR FORSE ONE-PACE MAKER.

6. REVENGEFUL KNIGHT is tracking week. GENIOUS BOY should benefit from last run. SPLENDID MAN is tracking well, distance suits. KIANA has managed to win the fillies trials and that is all, needs a run. DON’T BE SILLY showed lots of speed and has form to repeat easily.

PUNE RACES

1. BLUSH has been managed well, has won thrice in this class, has handicap against now. SCINTILLO has been given a run after return from injury, may run well.

CAPTAIN SMART-MONEY FLASH-BLUSH.

2. TITIAN may find it difficult to stay the trip at top weight, the experienced rider is a positive for this poorly performing trainer. THUNDER STRIKE has won at this distance with this rider and should be fancied in the small field. OCEAN WARRIOR is a failed favorite, has won this trip before.

REINSTATE is a winner of 2 races whose last 4th was an easy run. STAR BURST has come to hand as is evident by the vast improvement shown in the last run, should fight out now. LAURU’S PRIDE was a faraway 3rd who has weights in favor.

STAR BURST-LAURUS PRIDE.

KING OF HABASHE-SUPREME STRENGTH-SEQUANA.

2. LOOKING TO LUCK has been given a run for fitness. I FANCY YOU is due to earn soon. BEAUTIFUL DANCER is in top condition and has the jockey doing well here. AMAZING PERFORMER from the betting stables may evoke interest, has been bought down.

DELHI RACES


1. The longest season of the country starts today at the capital where the race course is located just opposite the PM’s residence and is undoubtedly the most pathetically kept sporting venue one could imagine. Despite the longish break and money in the coffers the management is content with inaction. A visit to the stables and the adjoining area can convince even the most hard core supporter of those in the management, it is an accepted thing here year after year. The racing scenario is also glum with few horses in forward condition due to the poorly kept race track and training ares, the horses have hardly shown out with very average timings recorded by even the keen ones. The stables of the top trainer may not be firing as he has been suspended and the previous champion A Khan not having much strength to flaunt. Top jockey for years Rajinder makes his debut soon as a trainer, hope he performs well here also.

1. GREEN RIBBON should win the opener like the last two years , he is an early bird with an allowance jockey. ENTER AND CANTER has worked well, the solitary ride for this jockey for the gambling owner, the got abroad has a solitary run in last season to refer to. CHANDELIER has come down a lot but needs ground to cover. CRYSTAL PISTOL is bound to be in the fray at these weights and some preparation.

GREEN RIBBON-ENTER AND CANTER-CRYSTAL PISTOL.

2. CLASSIC N MYSTIC is pleasing in tracks, has a coming up apperentice. MASTER CROWN has been sharpened up and the rider has an edge. MASTER PIECE may run a forward race. GO WITH THE FLOW is showing fine tracks, has low weights.

MASTER CROWN-CLASSIC N MYSTIC-GO WITH THE FLOW.

3. INVICIBLE FORCE may be involved, has a handicap chance. DON’T BE SILLY who had run after a year or so had given a good gamble last time, looks tough after the firm penality, I like the SK Verma’s other hose FIRST N IMPRESSION with the better jockey and good tracks to be in the fray. STEEL FORCE is working well but needs distance.

FIRST N IMPRESSION-INVINCIBLE FORCE-DON’T BE SILLY.

4. THE MAFIA from the management people’s stables has been prepared in july but then no works? FIRE CRACKER is a fast one. MOVIE QUEEN was disappointing last season, has speed. AIR FORSE ONE needs more tripwise but tracks and handicap are encouraging.

AIR FRSE ONE-FIRE CRACKER-MOVIE QUEEN.
5. GENIOUS BOY is tracking well, should improve as age is on side. JEWEL STAR is a speedy type. OEF TOBA has caught the eye with fine tracks, the change of stables may be positive for the supporting owner. DESTINED PRINCE needs a trip, tracks are good.

OEF TOBA-JEWEL STAR-GENIOUS BOY.

6. DREAM DEBUT went on a slide all through the last season, some good preparation now is a strong indicator. FEARLESS TIGER has worked well. FATEH MAIDAN is the youngster with good works. GREEN SEALS may be tried.

DREAM DEBUT-FEARLESS TIGER-FATEH MAIDAN.

7. CHARG AWAY is working fast. TAKE A CHANCE always runs well in early part of season. CONFIDENTIAL LADY is tracking fine. FOROOZAN remains a maiden looking for the break.

TAKE A CHANCE-CHARG AWAY-FOROOZAN

SONEEYO FOR PANCHSHIL MILLION

PUNE RACES


1. TOWERING HIGH has won at top weight over this trip but can not be supported as the rider is weak and the stables are poor performers with public fancies. AURARIA had won all the way at the end of Mumbai season with this rider, has been given a prepatory run and is bound to be tried. HICKORY is inconsistent but has a chance to place. RISING ASSET may not be tried with the stand in trainer, handicap suits. WATCH OUT has the weights and the keen jockey to score but is a habitual bleeder.

AURARIA-TOWERING HIGH-WATCH OUT.

2. ARIANE has a weak jockey for the trip at top weight. LIGHT MY WAY has been given a run after a long absence due to fitness problems, has the credentials to beat the poor field. ROESTI scored in a weak field and has to beat the step up in class, tracks are good.

LIGHT MY WAY-ARIANE.

3. INCOGNITO has a tough handicap, has age on side to improve. SILVER SCREEN may find the extra yards difficult here. BOLD DANCER has the handicap and weights in favor. OCEAN EMPEROR was the fastest finisher in last race and will improve despite the step up in class.

BOLD DANCER-INCOGNITO-OCEAN EMPEROR.

4. SCHOLAR has raced with better types but has a weak rider at top weight. ANCIENT WONDER has a controversial rider who may not go full out in first run. RIVER BLITZ has his task cut out as the handicap is stiff, the threat is from the aged ALEXUS whose last run was good, a stiff challenge has to be overcome to upset.

ALEXUS-RIVER BLITZ-SCHOLAR.

5. PABLO NERUDA is a failed favorite who was slow off , has worked well. PRONTO STAR has some form to go by. SNOW BLAZE has improved, may run on board. SOONEYO was an impressive winner at Mumbai and has shaped up well. JOSEPHINE is a got abroad who should find support based on win, though the company was very ordinary. SURYAVEER can place here at good odds as he is receiving important weight from the fancied ones.

SONEEYO-PEBULA NERUDA-SNOW BLAZE.

6. VISIONIST is from the under performing and betting stables, watch money flow. VITTORIA appears to be a fine type and has the rider to force the issue. REIN IN SPAIN is a speedy one. OASIS GOLD bled in last run, can not be supported so soon. TUDOR REGENT is the oldie with some chance here based on last easy win.

VITTORIA-REIN IN SPAIN-VISIONIST.

7. EMERGING STAR has speedy pedigree and looks fit. MADAGASKAR is a costly purchase who has not come to hand. FOLLOW ME should run well with the top rider in a suspect field. SPIRIT OF ECSTASY should win if favorite falters for obvious reasons, the brother to good type TAKESTWOTOTANGO looks in fine shape.

SPIRIT OF ECSTASY-EMERGING STAR-FOLLOW ME.

8. RIVER GEM has come down a lot, the rider is not worth a bet. RAN BANKA has won at these weights before. ADVENTURER has physical problems and should be left alone. MACHO UNO can do well, has handicap chance. UPROAR can build up on last fine effort. TAG ALONG TOMMY has been an enigma with the trainer, the handicap is appealing and the allowance jockey who has often failed to finish well should do justice here.

TAG ALONG TOMMY-RAN BANKA-MACHO UNO.

STAR OF KILLARNEY FOR K VASUDEVAN CUP

PUNE RACES


Hello Friends, I returned on 18th after a refreshing sojourn and surely missed the racing scene here. Pune races have been dominated by favorites and N Lagad keeps on sending out winners as his strategy of giving runs and targeting horses for seasons has worked well. The top trainer P Shroff is bound to be in the hunt as he has lots of good types with him. There is bound to be some heated debates over the soon to be decided fate of three trainer’s for banned substance enquiry in samples of their wards , the stewards decision is to be made public this week. I give out my selections based on ltd inputs as the break has affected my data base and it will take some time to get into full involvement.


1. ARABIAN FIGHTER comes down in class and will be in the fray for the betting but not so successful betting stables of the experienced trainer. MRIGNAYNEE looks a sitter to me after the drop of two classes and the winner of 4 races at Delhi can surely beat this lot in the lowest class. FULL THROTTLE is the aged one from the watched stables who ran well enough last time. HI DOLLY and COUNTRY MAN may evoke some interest but have lots of negatives.

MRIGNAYNEE-ARABIAN FIGHTER-FULL THROTTLE.

2. JEN,S GLORY was a faraway 2nd and now goes with an improving apprentice jockey, looks difficult for a win. SWAGGER is from a top grade sire and despite being with a regarded stable has not impressed in his runs. ATLANTIC STAR comes into reckoning on his preparation after the opening day. HONEY BEE has down by a lot but is from a most backward stable with a poor strike rate for even placing horses.


ATLANTIC STAR-JEN’S GLORY-SWAGGER.


3. APACHE INDIAN ran a good 2nd under a try jockey, top weight is against but he can win as the field is suspect. PERFECT STRENGTH should place once again, can stay the trip. Everything except the rider are negatives for OCEAN WARRIOR. ETIQUETTE goes over a long trip for first time, has scope to improve. MONEY FOR NOTHIN was a notable 3rd and should be fancied based on rider switch and low weights.


MONEY FOR NOTHIN-APACHE INDIAN-PERFECT STRENGTH.


4. Patience and planning has paid for the owner of PHOSPHOR who brought down this speedy type by giving insipid runs in last two seasons and then striking twice here. The negative rider switch is evident, Chauhan is no match for Narredu, see how he scored a going away win on RIP VAN WINKLE yesterday on whom Chauhan had always made heavy weather. ANGEL’S PURSUIT is being steadily bought down, can out speed all on his day. STAR OF KILLARNEY is a well bred with the top jockey who looks good too me. EMERALD VALLEY needs this run.


STAR OF KILLARNEY-PHOSPHOR-EMERALD VALLEY.


5. HEAVENLY PRIZE for the betting connections has a decent chance to place, the horse ran well last time. HOME ALONE has the pedigree but the mixed up jockey needs to be avoided for some time. LAKE GENEVA could not win under R Hughes in attempts in winters, has her work cut out. MISS STARLIGHT had opened as a favorite in Mumbai where PRONTO PRONTO was making a debut, she has beaten LAKE GENEVA before, the question is the threat of suspension hanging over the trainer’s head.


LAKE GENEVA-MISS STARLIGHT-HEAVENLY PRIZE.


6. ASHWA PRAJOT has a positive rider switch after the last good effort. SUGAR LOAF has a fair pedigree and last run was an opener. BE COOL may run on board. MISHRI had impressed in winters, it appears that she was given runs in Bangalore, something was missing somewhere and the trainer who has a record for loosing on public fancies and hoodwinking the system, also he is likely to take it easy this season after the longish stint in last two seasons. SMASHING is the well bred who looks good from works.

MISHRI-SMASHING-ASHWA PRAJOT.


7. TELL ME MORE at top weight has his task cut out, last run has caught the public eye but can not be considered a good thing as he is conceding weight to TZIGANE who is much better placed on terms than in race 138 of Mumbai. EMERGING STAR may place. Others have ltd credentials to be fancied.

TZIGANE-TELL ME MORE-EMERGING STAR.

DAYS BEST===MRIGNAYNEE

DOUBLE------STAR OF KILLARNEY X MISHRI
