MUMBAI RACES

A very insipid card, may turn out as tricky as a hillside minefield.

1. DANCING MONEY is a failed favorite who has a chance to redeem failure. CAPTAIN SMART has not been forward for long, has been tracked and may run a forward race for the wayward stables. LADY BLACKSTAR has the rider who won on her before. WATCH OUT was a fine 2 nd to AURARIA, has been given an easy run.

CAPTAIN SMART-DANCING MONEY-WATCH OUT.

2. CYPRESS POINT should improve, the trip will suit. ARSHAVIN has handicap chance with the non performing rider. EQUIANO can run well here. LET IT FLY may place. RADICAL MACKIE ran very close to ASLAN, should be tried here.

VENUS ROSEWATER-STARDOM BOUND-TELL ME MORE.

8. BIZZAR0 and WINTER WIND are the off springs of highly anticipated and may be a trifle over rated freshman sire NOUVERRE, both have worked well and should be running well. TACHYON has the benefit of a forward race, will be a threat. ANAAHI is by a very speedy mare and has shown fluency in tracks. PORTIA has been kept easy in works, needs a run.

A weak card comparable to Mysore and Delhi races. Most horses are still struck up at Pune and things should improve once the complete flocks have gathered.

1. SOUND OF RIVER is the well bred half brother to FLOODS OF FORTUNE and the Derby winner PHENOMENALE, got beat easily as a favorite last year, can not be sure if improved. RED SENSATION has the jockey in a small group for exploiting the situation. MAGICAL MANTRA can not be backed as he is from a very laid back stables. Has handicap in favor.

SOUND OF RIVER-RED SENSATION.

2. BONNY LIGHT has a stiff handicap. VICTOR IVANOV can build up on last run. WATCH OUT was a good 2nd, the maiden has a chance. WELLS FARGO is at a suitable handicap to upset.

WELLS FARGO-WATCH OUT-VICTOR IVANOV.

MYSORE RACES


A card which is different from normal Mysore races as the number of entries are less and easy to pick trier’s from form. But the worst scenario is the number of entries from the same trainers’ looking for the now well used formula of the “doosra” which has been most largely used by the father and son combination of Byramji’s for more than a decade.

1. Six horses from 2 trainers. ARIANA is my choice for the strong finish in last run and the fact that age favors. ISINBIYEVA who has been trained by 6 different trainers is obviously the competitor due to the low weights and ideal trip. CALLIDORA has a try jockey, may be a red herring.

ARIANA-ISINBAYEVA.

2. LEGAL KNIGHT is by he aging decent sire and has been systematically been prepared. The half brother to BANAN BOY gets a good chance to win. INFATUATION has shown good tracks and will fight out. ALABAMA has been tracking well.

LEGAL KNIGHT-INFATUATION.

3. HAGGLER is aged but has been tracking all through last season, the competition ain’t much. STARS AND STIPES may not get the trip, has a chance to place. CAESAR is working well.

HAGGLER-STARS AND STRIPES.

4. DEL GRATIA is most speedy. MEGA JOCY can surprise. SARATOGA has a handicap chance. COUNT ROYAL may run a forward race.

DEL GRATIA-SARATOGA.

5. FLASH FLARES has done well against Bangalore types. BUCETHALIS is a good type who is working well. SOCIAL CLIMBER can surprise. BILLO RANI gets to travel a bit extra?

BUCETHALIS-FLASH FLARES.

6. BAHMAN is unreliable type. AERIAL ACROBAT may have been a non trier last season. HUCKLEBERRY FINN has been well prepared , may win if ridden well. SPLASH OF BEAUTY has to beat the penalty.

HUCKLEBERRRY FINN-SPLASH OF BEAUTY-AERIAL ACROBAT.

7. SOLMAZ was a going away winner who is fine trim. Stable mate ALIZADEH had surprised by winning a good race, all others are looking much inferior. For place BELLA COOLA at low weights has been waited with. Otherwise HEYDAN may be considered.

SOLMAZ-ALIZADEH-BELLA COOLA.

MUCH FASTER-ASHWA JUGNOO-MARHABA.

2. AMAZING SUPER is a horse with limitations, ran poorly last time and is still a maiden at this age. REVENGEFUL KNIGHT has been bought down, has a good rider. GLOBAL WIND had upset in the only run last season, needs a run here. HAPPY GO LUCKY may be fancied for the rider switch. STAR SPARKLE has a try rider at low weights.

HAPPY GO LUCKY-REVENGEFUL KNIGHT-GLOBAL WIND.

3. MYSTERIO is down a class, has an allowance jockey. BAY OF THUNDER has won in better company last year, change of stables has not helped. ASHWA PAYALIA may be tried, had won in higher class last year. AWESOME is the well bred who is looking keen from works.

AWESOME-MYSTERIO-ASHWA PAYALIA.

RED REEF- MASTER BLASTER-REAL SMASHER.

5. COURAGE UNDER FIRE may find the penalty and the distance difficult to handle, has a try jockey. MASTER SPEED has completed a hat trick and still looks in with a chance. MADE OF GOLD has to deal with the mile trip. DON’T YOU DARE is in rousing form and at low weights, the company he beat was quite ordinary last time.

MASTER SPEED-DON’T YOU DARE-COURAGE UNDER FIRE.

6. SHOW ON was the lousiest quoted favorite to bite the dust last season, the connections must still be smarting over their overconfidence then, looks good now after the easy opener earlier. ELEMENTO TRANCE is a failed favorite with a poor chance here. MISTER MOONSTONE is out of depth in this field. FUEL should place if odds suit.

SHOW ON-FUEL-ELEMENTO TRANCE.

7. TAPISFLY has gate problems, may take off to do well. SFLIGHT OF FANCY has a chance to run a forward race with the rookie. HOT AND CLASSIC should build on last effort. TRUSTED MAN has a weak jockey, may run well?. ADDICTION may place at these weights.

MUMBAI OPENING DAY


1. FROST FAIRY has a good handicap advantage, it appears she was not in the hunt as a favorite in last run as the owner is the one who knows how to get decent rates. PERSIAN has bloodlines but intent may be lacking from the connections. ROSE HEAVEN showed lots of improvement in last run and should be trying to win at low weights.

FROST FAIRY-ROSE HEAVEN.

2. OCEANIC WISDOM needs a lot to win here, despite the rider he appears to be the weakest. DOVER’S HILL is a speedy one who did well at Pune, has scope to improve. DANCING GLANCES is a sparingly raced who fought and lost to the classic Botswana, should win easily now.

DANCING GLANCES

3. MOUNTAIN TREASURE is bred very well and has been given a prepatory easy mock. ADAM’S VISION has Pune form to go by, belongs to a poorly performing stable. Other runners have yet to get their act right.

MOUNTAIN TREASURE-ADAM’S VISION.

4. SMASHING is a very exciting sprinter who needs to be backed continuosly, has showed out in works. ESMERALDO is from a trainer who excels in hoodwinking the system by in and out running of his wards, has some class. GREAT HEART is a winner of 3 races but has no works. CAPRIOLE may place at low weights.

SMASHING-CAPRIOLE.

5. The most competitive race of the day. OUT OF MY WAY was an improving winner of both outings, now concedes weight to good types. LAKE SUPERIOR and OUR CHIETAIN are both well experienced who have run close to classic hopeful PRONTO PRONTO. RANTHANBORE is a fast type who looks out of depth here, let us see how far he leads in. ISHIPINGO has speed and goes at suitable weights.

LAKE SUPERIOR-OUR CHIETAIN.

6. A race where no horse has ceredentials to win. ATLANTIC STAR has tracked well but has the jockey with a poor record with favored runners. SIZZLING LOVE has a try jockey. LAKE GENEREUSE should not be running for a serious effort under the work jockey. ADAM’S PRINCE is the winner of a race who looks a very poorly bred one. My choice is the long odds MONEY STRIKE who has a very weak jockey for a once in the blue moon trier owner /trainer.

MONEY STRIKE-ATLANTIC STAR-SIZZLING LOVE.

7. RULE FOREVER won in poor company and may suffer at top weight. GENERALLISSIMO is the aged one who will be tried, was in betting order last time. PRIDE OF THE HILLS is working well, the trainer will be keen in early part of the season after the light sentence for a very serious offence. REBECCA is a well bred who showed promise in last run, has been given a mock.

REBECCA-PRIDE OF THE HILLS-GENERALISSIMO.

I SPECIALIST has a handicap chance to fight out. LAD KING has worked well, the distance suits. RIDGEWAY bled in summers after a very good initiation, should be in thick of things as he looks well.

NEARNESS OF YOU-RIDGEWAY-LAD KING.
