BANGALORE RACES

1. DECCAN CHARGERS is a well bred who has a try rider. SENSATIONAL MOVER has been kept away from tracks for far too long. WELL KNOWN has the champion jockey who is on a high wave. WILL STAR tracks well, jockey is useless. BALANCE OF NATURE is notable in tracks but has a low caliber rider who finds it difficult to win.

DECCAN CHARGERS-WELL KNOWN-BALANCE OF NATURE.

2. CORNELIUS is tracking very fine and has the benefit of a run. FORTHCOMING is bound to be tried after the last run. ACTIVE GREY is by the top sire, has looked fit. EQUINE LOVER is by a black type mare who produced MYSTIC QUEST, impressed in gates. F FLAME is full sister to PRONTO STAR , may run well.

EQUINE LOVER-FORTHCOMING -ACTIVE GREY.

3. FOLKLORE has some chance of getting on the board. TURF FAME has been waited with, note the rider switch. POWER GRID has come down and goes under the whip. JIGRI DOST has the champion.

TURF FAME-JIGRI DOST-POWER GRID.

4. I shall get up and salute the champion if he can goad the mulish PENDOLINO to win. UNION JACK was a notable runner who is showing out in tracks. FIRE LIGHT has a weak rider but last run was in good company. SIMPLY STYLISH was pulled last time, has tracked well, can be tried if the owner is convinced by his astrologers that it is right time and stars are in correct position for him. Nobody in the management ever questions the in and out running of this owner’s wards.

UNION JACK-FIRE LIGHT-SIMPLY STYLISH.

5. ACCURATE has handicap against. TOMSK was warming up a bit late, can redeem today. VALAHAK goes over extra yards, last effort was a good one. GLUTEUS MAXIMUS should be fancied to do well here.

TOMSK-GLUTEUS MAXIMUS-ACCURATE.

6. GAME DANCER has come to hand, tracks are good. INDIAN BOLT has been waited with, can win if odds are good. HARD TO PIN DOWN was given an amateurish ride to loose badly by Suraj last time, the cousin doesn’t do well in Bangalore. SIX SHOOTER has an outside chance, may be tried. CHRONICLE with the absolutely poor rookie nearly crossed the wire in last run, may be that run will give some thought to the hapless ALAM that he ought to push the horse to win.

CHRONICLE-INDIAN BOLT-HARD TO PIN DOWN.

7. FANTASTIC STRIKE has handicap chance, whether he will be tried, have your guess on that thought. ROYAL SPIRIT has a terribly weak rider. GOLDEN VIPER could not be trained by the previous trainer, can the gambling type master tame him, horse is a treat on tracks. FANTABULOUS STAR has not been able to respond to the trainer’s technique, unlike others of his age. INDEPENDENCE DAY may be fancied by hard core followers of Chauhan to repeat, he must be thanking his stars that he won on this one last time. If ridden with purpose THUNDER looks good to go all the way.

THUNDER-FANTASTIC STRIKE-GOLDEN VIPER.

8. ANOTHER VOICE is from the magician with older ones, take your chances. CORLEONE has come down by heaps and has a rider switch, should beat all on a genuine effort. SUPER GOLD may work up some finishing effort. LAD ZONE should be fancied to ensure a winning goodbye to the champion jockey, horse has been peaked by his trainer friend for a winning effort.

LAD ZONE-CORLEONE-ANOTHER VOICE.

BANGALORE RACES


Extra races are normally to fund the bookies as dear blogger Shyam puts it sometimes in his discussions, very insipid card and with the completion for champion trainer & rider etc sorted out, Gymkhana type competition may be the order for the last two days.

1. STRIVE AND SERVE should not get the trip being a Tirol. GOLD VENTURE won after warming up well into the straight in last win, extra distance should suit. FRAME PARTNER could not win despite all efforts, shall remain so deprived. ENCHANTD FOREST is a costly got abroad who the overcharging trainer has not been able to fathom, breeding and preparations are positives.

GOLD VENTURE-ENCHANTED FOREST.

2. SENOR SPEEDY has impressed in tracks with the new team. CHANTILLY JEWEL needs stronger handling, the rookie is yet a sissy. COWBOY CAL has promised to deliver, needs to be followed. STUD MUFFIN was too late in finishing on in last run.

COWBOY CAL-SENOR SPEEDY-STUD MUFFIN.

3. AFFIRMATIVE won when least expected, earlier bled when backed down by the public, tracks show fluency. LOWNDES SQUARE from the old trainer has disappointed for far too long, may do well in this class. GORGEOUS GOLD won very easily and may be repeating as others from this stable have done so often. HILLSTONE is a bleeder who has looked well in latest works. BLUE STAR from the illusive trainer can win if allowed .

BLUE STAR-GORGEOUS GOLD-AFFIRMATIVE.

4. SUN CONTROL was backed somewhat but ran below par, whip less rookie has an outside chance now also. SOUTHERN KING has completed a hat trick at this old age, followers of Sharat Kumar may still wager for 4th. DROP OF HONEY has a chance to upset. LAD KING goes over a longish trip, can win as bloodlines are for staying trips. NESSIE can find a place on board. ARABIAN GOLD ran poorly in last effort, can win if tried, he had beaten LAD KING at level weights last year but the trainer is on a bad decline.

ARABIAN GOLD-LAD KING-SOUTHERN KING.

5. NECTOR CROWN has won in this class at higher weights. BIUTIFUL can be in the hunt, jockey is very weak though. RISING SUN has worked well and can go all the way. INDIAN PRIDE is from a hopeless combination, has funded the bookies many times. CARAWAY is one paced, has low weights.

RISING SUN-NECTOR CROWN-CARAWAY.

6. NORTH CAPE is unreliable type. TRILLION WIN has a chance to win with the rookie, has been pulled during the season. BEAUTIFUL LIFE has a handicap chance, but may be waited with for the Mysore season. BRAVE CAT should be in the firing line.

BRAVE CAT- TRILLION WIN- NORTH CAPE.

7. DREAM RUNNER was given a loose ride, can score if backed. HILL COUNTRY is a speedy one whom all have to catch. SUPREME REGENT is from a very ordinary stable which are for parking the additional load of the owner, has some form. ROSIE’S DREAM should be fancied now.

DREAM RUNNER-HILL COUNTRY-ROSIE’S DREAM.

MUMBAI RACES


1. KALINGA STAR has distance in favor, top weight makes the going tough for win. HONEY BEE finished well in last run, trip is an issue. LAST TANGO may not last the distance , has a handicap chance though. MONEY FOR NOTHIN was not in the hunt as a favorite, may deliver if odds are good. ADAM’S PRINCE is bound to be in the fray here.

MONEY FOR NOTHIN-ADAM’S PRINCE-KALINGA STAR.

2. ZORBA has a rider who may place in the suspect field. LAKE ONTARIO gets a try jockey for first time and will be ridden out, can win. CAPTAIN SMART was taken to front but could not last out as a favorite. ALEUZIAN ZONE should do well with the try jockey.

LAKE ONTARIO-ALEUTIAN ZONE-CAPTAIN SMART.

3. ARTIC MINSTREL has a chance, shorter trip would have been ideal. SECRET SERVICE has run with better company, tracks are encouraging. HILLS AND HEIGHTS blew the opposition away as a good gamble in last run under a work jockey, needs to be followed. PURPLE PATCH was kept too far behind in last run, may have been a ploy.

HILLS AND HEIGHTS-SECRET SERVICE.

4. TOWERING HIGH can place in the weak field . BARTIMEUS can go all the way if ridden to win. ORIENTAL SAPPHIRE has not lived upto the high breeding, the trainer tries out his horses with out bothering for the handicap etc. PRINCE got beat by an aged horse in last run, may be fancied on that count.

BARTIMEUS-PRINCE-TOWERING HIGH.

5. ADAM’S VISION has beaten ENCORE in a sprint before, but has he been prepared for the extra 200 yards is the question. ENCORE should be able to exploit the finishing effort of last run. BATHSHEBA finally gets to run a race, has been tracking for months. STAR MOUNTAIN is working well.

ENCORE-ADAM’S VISION-STAR MOUNTAIN.

6. LAKE PARADISE is a failed favorite, looks in fine condition from works. ASTAPI comes out on top on comparison, can get the trip. SLEDGE HAMMER is in top form and will try to go all the way in his long striding style.

ASTAPI-SLEDGE HAMMER.

7. ASCOT MAGIC has worked nicely. STAR MOUNTAIN is a well bred half brother to GRUEZI., looks prepared. KISMAT is from a over hyped sire , but he is full brother to the very impressive black type THE HURRICANE, tracks are suggestive. SERENA will fight out here, may go very close.

KISMAT-SERENA-ASTRO MAGIC.

8. MOUNTAIN REGIMENT was a runaway winner who looks to repeat. ROYAL HONOUR finished on to just pip the leader in last run, has scope for improvement. CAPITANO has been loosing too often, handicap is catching on. MOUNTAIN TREASURE is fast in works.

MOUNTAIN REGIMENT-CAPITANO-ROYAL HONOUR.

9. DIANI is yet a maiden who has a try rider. MOUNTAIN PRINCE is a failed favorite who looks much improved. MOONSCAPE flopped when backed, needs another look. LAKE VIEW is running after good works. LAURUS PRIDE can place with a forward run.

MOUNTAIN PRINCE-MOONSCAPE-LAURUS PRIDE.

MASTER CHAMPION FOR CHIEF SECRETARY CUP

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

DELHI RACES

Delhi Races are unpredictable like Mysore Races. The season is so long that a horse runs for 25 times and most runs are for fooling the handicapper. Also most of the trainers and riders are inter related so lots of adjustments happen. I can only give out choices based on handicap, preparation and form, please also study the betting board before venturing with picks. Unlike other centres there is no information on odds and I do not go to the race course, my choices are to help one with some background.

1. AWESOME goes over correct distance with a rookie, can win if handled well. DANCING BABE is a good handicapper who is in with a chance after last run. TEZ RAFTAAR made a fool of the handicapper with a runaway win, such things happen with regularity at this laid back centre, today he should be left alone.

AWESOME-DANCING BABE.

2. ASHWA PARINDA was bought down to score, will look to repeat. SULTAN AYUBI has the fly in jockey, he lost on horses which were looking good on handicap yesterday, may be he will deliver here, the horse beat a weak field in last run. VARUN has a weak filed again, has a reasonably mature rider. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL has come down a lot and looks good on handicap.

SHE’S BEAUTIFUL-SULTAN AYUBI.

3. AFEA is an aged one who will always be tried since retirement is due. ALABASTAR was a good winner over this trip earlier, has age on side. HOT AND CLASSIC perhaps goes over an ambitious trip, should get beat. THE ROCK is my choice, has been bought down with a plan in mind.

THE ROCK-ALABASTER-AFEA.

4. MYSTERIO is in fine form. DAZZLE looks for a hat trick but the placement of the rider is not convincing. MASTER CHAMPION ran well in a million and can strike now. RIOS GIRL impressed in mocks, should fight out.

MASTER CHAMPION-RIOS GIRL-MYSTERIO.

5. NARMADA should be fancied for the convincing win over DAZZLE. ROSE needs more of distance. TEMPTING THOUGHT has not run as expected, can beat them all if fit. MASTER ARTS at low weight can be fancied for place.

NARMADA-TEMPTING THOUGHT-MASTER ARTS.


6. TRUSTED MAN was not in the hunt when running as a hot favorite, has a weak field now. SAIRA is another one who performs worse when bet upon, has a handicap chance. NEKO can show out, is being waited with. YAKUT is best left alone. INDIAN BRIDE has come down to striking level.

SAIRA-TRUSTED MAN-INDIAN BRIDE.

2. PERFECT AFFECT is a pulled case, has a rookie now. SUNRISE won easily and can repeat. ASSERTIVE was caught napping as a favorite in lower class, has some chance.

SUNRISE-AASERTIVE.

3. WHISTLING WARRIOR from the low rated stables can place. FAR SUPERIOR has failed as a favorite but look at the very suspect field now. BHOOMI PUTRA has come down to rock bottom, the trainer can win in the balance of the season if he feeds his old horse properly.

FAR SUPERIOR-WHISLING WARRIOR.

4. SUPREME VICTORY looks good on handicap, last run was too bad to be taken seriously. NEKO performed below par in last run. HEAVENLY ANGEL can score with a try ride. FATEH MAIDAN still looks for maiden win.

HEAVENLY ANGEL-SUPREME VICTORY.

5. MASTER SENSATION is a decent type who showed lots of improvement in last win. SHAARANGA surprised the rider with an easy win last time, has a top jockey for the event. MISS MARINE won in a weak field, don’t calculate by the beating given to others, today the field is superior. SADJIT has worked eye catching tracks. TINY TEMPER was a gallant looser, has an average rider.

SHAARANGA-MASTER SENSATION-SADAJIT.

6. JOVIAL is a speedy one who should go all the way. MOVIE QUEEN may place. RAWSOM was bought down and won well last time, will try to repeat. BACHA QUERO can improve on last run.

JOVIAL-RAWSOM.

WIN AGAIN FOR STEWARD'S TROPHY

Saturday, March 17, 2012

BANGALORE RACES


A tremendous performance by a rising star in training of horses, Sharat Kumar is now a force to reckon with, hats off to him for reeling off winners defying penalty after penalty with utmost ease. Horses which other trainers could not make fit have scored runaway wins, AMBER STAR is a case in point. Experienced trainer’s would be wondering at the method adopted by this person who had a modest beginning with aged horses and who does not have highly bred and costly babies as youngsters to groom.

On the counter side it also is evident that there is a serious dearth of good trainers and specially jockeys at this centre. Take away the foreigners and we have just three rider in Narredu, Chauhan & John, rest are all trash. Talking of trainers , most can only get some place money for their owners, lots survive on grapevine and passing on tips to the punters, I pity their owners who are footing all sorts of bills every month on non performing animals.

1. CHANTILLY JEWEL has handicap in favor, forget last run under a rookie. ATTRACTOR from the specialist is coming down a lot in handicap. COOL WHISTLE has a chance here, was under the stick in last run. FANTABULOUS STAR can win as is the trend.

CHANTILLY JEWEL-FANTABULOUS STAR-COOL WHISTLE.

2. MI AMOR belongs to suspicious connections, ran very bad last time, will win only at good odds. STRIVE AND SERVE has no form but is being tried. HILLTON has a work jockey. FRAME PARTNER should gallop away on backing.

FRAME PARTNER-MI AMOR-STRIVE AND SERVE.

3. REAL STEEL has been in training for months, needs a run, may not win in opener. AMAZON BAY is by a black type mare and can do well in this very suspect field. JEYEM’S PRIDE is from low rated stables, has worked well. SAREETA has worked fine.

AMAZON BAY-REAL STEEL-JEYEM’S PRIDE.

4. TRILLION WIN and SPARK OF DIABLO are the two who were pulled in last attempts but let off with feeble penalties. ANOTHER VOICE should make up now. JACK O LANTERN was struggling to surge up in last run.

ANOTHER VOICE-JACK O LANTERN-TRILLION WIN.

5. KYLES OF BUTE is an in and out runner, very inconsistent. ACCURATE goes with a heavy penalty. RARE AND PRECIOUS ran well in a good field last time. WIN AGAIN is a speedy youngster who should go all the way now.

WIN AGAIN-ACCURATE-RAE AND PRECIOUS.

6. AFRICAN QUEEN has a weak rookie. YOUNG ACHIEVER lost narrowly last time to SOUTHERN KING who demolished the field in higher class yesterday, make your own conclusions. LADY GAGA looked very ordinary in last run. MIGROLINO is a better horse who is returning to form and may get the wire now.

MIGROLINO-YOUNG ACHIEVER-LADY GAGA.

7. HILLFIGER won from a highly regarded opponent last time, should be followed. CASANOVA from the gone backwards stables has not for long. THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS has a modest chance with this ordinary apprentice. BENTEN and SHIVALIK PRINCE may now fight again to hit the board.

HIILFIGER-THOUGHTS N ACTYIONS-CASANOVA.

8. BOUNTY HUNTER from a very weak trainer gets the top jockey, has won at these weights before . CLAARA has been in form. COWBOW CAL was surprised as much as was the trainer of long odds PROVOCATEUR in last run, has a chance now.

ATLANTUS, FIREZONE & TOMSK have all run close to winning in this season and then they have followed up by running nowhere next time out.

Both NO DOUBT & INVINSIBLE SHOT have equal chance but I prefer the later for the finishing effort against SARATOGA SPRINGS. BERNICIA is showing good tracks. ANOTHER VOICE was the frenzy of betting people who drowned loads of money in last weak effort, may work up the hysteria once again.

The uncertainties and mystics of Indian racing were to the fore yesterday, the trend is likely to continue and the punters may keep on getting a hammering even today. Some who may have won at long odds on SPARK OF KNIGHT, BEN TEN, ATTILA,
SWISS DON, JERSEY GIRL or AFFIRMATIVE may find some long odds obliging even today.


1. The race looks to be between SUMMER SUN and VIOLENT STORM. The later looks better in form and handicap but then take a look at whom the former has beaten in summers. SUNDAY BLAST and SPARKLING IMAGE may be trying to hit the board. RAAGA is one paced and ASPECTS OF LOVE is a well bred gone haywire, should not be fancied merely because of fast tracks.

VIOLENT STORM-SUMMER SUN-SUNDAY BLAST.

2. KNOWLEDGE has a chance, tracks are fine. The off springs of REBUTTAL need a run before making impact. OWN ASSET has to do a lot to win on first outing. SAM’S PRIDE is improved since last run. CLEVER TRICK impressed in runs. OPEN PAGE may do well, was eye catching last time.

SAM’S PRIDE-OPEN PAGE-CLEVER TRICK.

3. SIMPLY PHENOMENAL was backed strongly under Suraj but flopped, the ordinary jockey may surprise. CHRONICLE has the in form rider, has a weak field to beat. NEVER SAY GOODBYE may place. VOICE OF INDIA was backed as if defeat was not a bother, may not even be tried today as is the trend here. SPARK OF DIABLO looks in good nick, jockey was fined and now gets a non trier on top.

CHRONICLE-SPARK OF DIABLO-SIMPLY PHENOMENAL.

4. CURRENT RAY has gate problems, can outrun all. INDIAN BOLT is from the worst type of connections. SUNDAY STORM is very speedy and will be going all out., take your chance. THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS is a place candidate. I like HILLFIGER here, he is a classy one who is on the up, was kept easy when beaten by S STORM.

HILLFIGER-SUNDAY STORM-CURRENT RAY.

5. KRIPA is a different horse with this trainer, has good form. SMILES ALL THE WAY should not be discounted even now. HARD TO PIN DOWN has handicap chance. THRILL SEEKER may be interested in a genuine run once again. MITRAYA should be out of depth in this crowd. INDRAVATI is a failed favorite with a negative jockey switch.

HARD TO PIN DOWN-KRIPA-THRILL SEEKER.

6. ARISTOS is game old horse who has shown peak form. SPRINT STAR is a versatile one who just got beaten near the post yesterday. STRING ALONG will be leading the pack, has a chance. CARDINAL can bounce back, looks jaded in works. FIELD MARSHALL has all the chances to go all the way. ALMA MATER is in fine nick, the track may be a bother for first time.

FIELD MARSHALL-ARISTOS-SPRINT STAR.

7. TOROLOCO is yet unbeaten, Derby win was easy. IN THE SPOT LIGHT looked too good in Indian Derby and the extra trip will suit best. SMASHING has a lot to catch up with. SOUTHERN BAY has beaten INTHESPOTLIGHT in hard run races, I suspect the grand daughter of STUNNING may not be abler to match strides now.

IN THE SPOT LIGHT-SOUTHERN BAY-TOROLOCO.

8. ANCIENT WONDER will like this trip, was well within reach yesterday. ATLANTUS from the champion trainer is a genuine one for this trip. HILL DIORO is in top form, can get this one also. SOVETSKAYA looks over raced, was finishing on when beaten last time.ST CATZ is for long odds hunters.

HILL DIORO-ATLANTUS-ANCIENT WONDER.

9. WILL STILL has a step up in rider. RIGHT ON TIME has shown speed in works. SALSA TOUCH can win on backing now, looks much improved. YOUR WINDS OF CHANGE is waiting for the gamble to be sprung, watch?

INVITATION RACES


A very competitive card due to lucrative stakes for performers and punters would be lucky if they scrape through with any satisfaction today.

1. BISCOTTI has gate problems, ran well enough in last attempt but does not appeal at this weight. SWEET ANGEL has been well prepared and given a run, note the rider switch. JEYEM has an ordinary rider. SICILY placed with a work jockey, should run better now. AMBER STAR and FLIP YOUR DESTINY come close on comparison, the later has racing fitness.

SWEET ANGEL-SICILY-BISCOTTI.

2. BEAUTIFUL LIFE has been kept easy in most runs, trip and handicap suit if tried. SPARK OF KNIGHT has been kept indoors after the last run when pulled. WAR ARTIST has won with this jockey before, has a chance. FRAME PARTNER may be the trainer’s special for the day, watch betting trend.

BEAUTIFUL LIFE-FRAME PARTNER-WAR ARTIST.

3. QUICK ENOUGH may show improvement , has worked well. VOLCANO ran fair enough last time to be considered. WIND STREAM is well bred full brother to good type RIGHT AGAIN, last effort was forward. ASPECTS OF JOY is full brother to black type winner AL FATEH, has tracked well. BOUDICCIA has been showing out in mornings like most youngsters from the average trainer. POINT TAKEN will have to really do well to win here.

WIND STREAM-BOUDICCIA-VOLCANO.

4. HACKETT is in fighting form. CHULBUL PANDEY beat SOVETSKAYA and lost on objection, should be fancied on that account. LAD’S ABILITY is showing speedy works. FLYING SNOW was waited with and massacred the field in last win, should repeat with the good jockey. VEYRON is a speedy type at low weights.

FLYING SNOW-CHULBUL PANDEY-LAD’S ABILITY.

5. BLUE STAR has top weight and an average rider. VIVA DIVA won authoritatively and may repeat. HOT STUFF is tracking well, has form also. GORGEOUS GOLD was a very easy winner. SPIFFY is a top bred who has not been able to sort out the niggles, morning works are attractive. FANTASTIC STRIKE at low weights will make it interesting, may go all the way.

FANTASTIC STRIKE-VIVA DIVA-HOT STUFF.

6. ANCIENT WONDER has a tough job in this track to win in first outing. ATTILA is a game sprinter , last run was weak. BEAUTIFUL STRANGER has been finishing on at the last moment, draw is bad. FOREST FLAIR comes into strong contention because of the speedy win in record time. SPRINT STAR is the local champion who has weights and handicap in favor. DANDIFIED is the only youngster who has a reputation , may upset.

SPRINT STAR-FOREST FLAIR-ANCIENT WONDER.

7. ARABIAN PRINCE should be able to defend his title of this race which he had won without a fuss last year. MACCHUPICHU has been prepared for the race. ORDAINED ONE has improved with each run and will be the one to throw a strong challenge today. SUN ABSOLUTE has been chasing and finishing on, the trip may be a bother.

ARABIAN PRINCE-ORDAINED ONE-MACCHUPICHU.

8. MIDNIGHT LEGACY is in good nick. ATHLETIC STAR was a notable runner who suffered a fall, has been tracking well. SMART STYAR is good type got abroad and looks in top condition. SHIVALIK DEW is ominous in tracks, the half sister to good type SUNSET BOULEVARD will win id her morning efforts are worth it. STATE SECRET is a failed favorite who looks improved.

SHIVALIK DEW-ATHLETIC STAR-STATE SECRET.

9. I SPECIALIST looks better than most on comparison, the rider is an enigma with favorites. LADY GAGA has an allowance jockey to beat the penalty. MOUNTAIN GLORY has tracked for long, needs a run. BYRANT APRK is a well bred who should do well here.

I SPECIALIST-BRYANT PARK-LADY GAGA.

DAYS BEST====WIND STREAM
