MUMBAI RACES

1.     1.   STAR GODDESS goes over pet distance with a top rider and despite looking stiff on handicap has a very good chance. SALT won well last time, has tracked well thereafter but belongs to a scheming trainer who is well known for in and out running of his wards, the horse  has credentials.

STAR GODDESS-SALT.

2.   2.    CALYPSO QUEEN appeals here, has good turn of foot. GATRAVAT from a  very ordinary stable needs a trip but the forceful rider may be able to get some response. ARABIAN EAGLE is the up setter here. BLADES OF GLORY may be fancied for place. 

CALYPSO QUEEN-ARABIAN EAGLE.

3.     3.   STAR EMPIRE has been well trained to loose, should be fancied for place only as he has come close to the winners when the race finishes. CYPRESS POINT has good form but sharper trip may be the undoing. LIMITLESS HILLS is due for a win, last run be ignored. RULE FOREVER has handicap chance, last run was good and tracks are decent.

LIMITLESS HILLS-RULE FOREVER-STAR EMPIRE.

4.      4.   ROYAL CREST has a good chance based on last outing. MONEY STRIKE appeared from the backpack to win convincingly, can repeat on that count. COUGAR  may warm up in the staright, has a weak rider though. MONEY FOR NOTHIN should be fancied for the rdier who is in top form.

MONEY STRIKE-ROYAL CREST-MONEY FOR NOTHIN.

5.   5.      STAR LIGHT MAGIC appears out of depth here in a shorter sprint. VIVA LA DIVA finished on strongly to go down at the post. NATIVE LADY has  good speed and should lead all the way. SABA has run with better types and can shock, has not run for long? DIAMOND ZIP is bound to be in the fray, has awesome form.


NATIVE LADY-DIAMOND ZIP-VIVA LA DIVA.

6.       6.  HERCULEAN was apparently pulled in last run, the trainer is known for in and out running of public fancies. LAKE VIEW has to improve a lot to win. TROPICAL ZONE had won well, penalty is bound to be a bother. CRIMSON AND CLOVER has tracked fine, horse looks to have some niggles. RECKLESS ROMEO was late in finishing on, the rookie has the best chance here.

HERCULEAN-RECKLESS ROMEO-TROPICAL ZONE.

7.      7.   AMITAYUS from another unreliable trainer has tracked the best, last finish was praiseworthy. BARRINGO has a lot to do here. MIGHTY KING is working fast and has a winning jockey. SNOW MOUNTAIN is a very well bred who has raced against good types and looks in condition, the bookie friendly jockey can score on this one at decent odds. JEWELLED looks to win and fizzles out, has handicap in favor.

SNOW MOUNTAIN-AMITAYUS-JEWELLED.

8.       8.  OCTOPAUL has nasty gate habits, if odds are suiting he can win as the last run was terrific. IBIS will try to fight again. ETESIAN has always run better than PERSIAN. ASHWA PARVEZ should be in the hunt today, has won at higher weights at the end of the season last year.

 OCTOPAUL-ASHWA PARVEZ.

9.     9.   GIBRAN was a surprise winner who can improve on that run. SCARAMOUCHE has been kept easy in last couple of runs. CROWNED  PRINCESS has form to go by. JEWEL OF THE HILLS has been wasted by the trainer, he has not been able to get this one to be race worthy, should not be fooled by the top pedigree of the animal.

SCARAMOUCHE-CROWNED  PRINCESS-GIBRAN.

MABLE FOR RTC TROPHY

MUMBAI RACES


1.  SOLI DE GLORIA can be cosidered for place only as at top weight the average rider has a lot to do. DOUBLE DIAMOND should take time to settle down in new surroundings, he failed to perform for the previous trainer. JACQUELINE SMILE  has some credentials but to win on backing under the average rookie may not scheme out. THAT'S MY MASTER has been an inconsistent horse but one should remember the long odds win at the start of the season. O'PRINCESS has tracked well lately and low weights is a positive factor, last run be ignored.

O'PRINCESS-THAT'S MY MASTER-JACQUELINE SMILE.

2.  SMOKEY BABA had tracked extremely fast in earlier part of season and may not have been pressed for an effort then, the weak field is inviting. ANGEL'S DREAM is from a speedy dam. HOLIDAY DANCER has tracked well, has a good rider and has performed well to merit consideration here. STARFIRE LADY ran easy in opener, thereafter has tracked fine.

SMOKEY BABA-HOLIDAY DANCER-STARFIRE LADY.

3.  SADDLER'S RULE needs more ground to warm up. FLYING STAR was a good racer in last run and looks in condition to win now. PTOLEMY is the oldire who will run under the stick today. KASKAZI had shaped like a winner when caught on the post in last run. SPEED UP has the top rider at low weights.

FLYING STAR-KASKAZI-SPEED UP.

4.  MANYATTA has impressed in fast spurts and should have benefited from the first run. SNOW KING is tracking very well but this rider has never been prominent. EVEREADY has been tracking regularly, may find the board as some runners are just fillers. JEN'S SECRET has some potential, rider is weak.

MANYATTA-EVEREADY-SNOW KING.

5.  COME ALIVE has worked fine. ICE SKATER may not be stretched. EROTIC FLAME and HISTORICA  should be the prime contenders as both are working well and have positive riders, the later is a much better bred.

HISTORICA-EROTIC FLAME-COME ALIVE.

6.  NEW WORLD has good breeding and a try rider, tracks are speedy. QUAIL looks fit, may run well. MABLE is the speediest of the lot, the average jockey has a good chance on the well bred. SOMETHING NEW had veered out in last run, she is the up setter if any.

MABLE-SOMETHING NEW-NEW WORLD.

7.  HIGHWAY EXPRESS was denied a free ride long time back and had been put in quarters for some reason unknown, has a lot to do to win with just two tracks despite the good rider. HERZELIYAH should have won before, lost a certain race, looks good to fight from the front. MCQUEEN may be ON from the most under performed trainer of the season. NEPTUNE is working well. SPRING BANK does not like to race, has  been moody, looks much better than most of the competitors here. PURPLE MOON may be fancied for form and the rider.

HERZELIYAH-MCQUEEN-SPRING BANK.

DOUBLE---------PRETTY GIRL X CARATORIO

THE HUNCH

Monday, April 16, 2012

1. In the 5th race yesterday, a competitive field of first time runners were competing and selection of winner was quite difficult. The pointers in such cases are good track work, pedigree , rider, trainer and owner etc. Apart from these indicators the bookies also have access to stable grapevine etc to offer odds to the public.


2. ACT OF WAR was the chosen favorite at about 16 to 10, since according to many he fulfilled some of the preconditions to win the race. MACEDONIAN who was racing after a serious set back with the top jockey and from the top trainer was the 2nd favorite and MAXIMUS was 3rd in demand at odds of 11 to 4 .

3. Mr Singh , a friend of mine had a deep look at the race card and ate the favorite a quarter at odds of 18 to 10 and backed MAXIMUS for ten thousand. When we asked him the reason for this confident double bet he had a simple explanation. His logic was that he favorite was trained by N B C Chenoy who along with her father trained number of horses most of which belonged to Mr J Mody. In this race MAXIMUS who was at good odds belonged to the same person and the horse was firm at the odds , hence Mr Singh was convinced that favorite would not even place if Mody’s horse was ON after all he was the mainstay for the Chenoy’s stables.

4. The result proved the hunch very right.

ONASSIS FOR SIR HARISINHJI TROPHY

MUMBAI RACES






1. FRIENDLY with an ordinary jockey had run well and should be looking to place again. PERFECT STRENGTH has come near to winning twice this season, is being scrubbed in works. ADVENTURER went all the way over this trip in last run and will try the same again. CAVALARY MAN is still a maiden, not sure of its potential here.



PERFECT STRENGTH-ADVENTURER.



2. EQUINOX has a lot to improve to be in winning consideration, has pedigree on the side, last run was bad. RODEO is ordinarily bred but is bound to be in the fray in the small field. ZANTHOS is a got abroad who is very impressive in tracks but belongs to an unreliable trainer who tries horses at good odds only.



ZANTHOS-RODEO.



3. SADDLER’S RULE has handicap on side but has a weak jockey at top weight. DEEP PURPLE is the killer here who should win at decent odds. IBIS has form on side and should be a threat to all.



DEEP PURPLE-IBIS.



4. ENCORE won as a favorite and now goes with a rookie who has been so so after the initial promise. RED TABASCO should be considered for place. FAIRY QUEEN has a chance to fight. FAST AND FURIOUS is a well bred with a good rider. BATYAM is from a very decent mare, has tracked well and notice the try jockey for first time at low weights.



BATYAM-ENCORE-FAST AND FURIOUS.

MACEDONIAN has the good rider on a well prepared horse from the top stables. MAXIMUS showed out in latest works, has good initial speed. LORD THUNDER is half brother to RED RENEGADE and is forward in tracks. WINDMILL LADY is a well bred half sister to a good type RECORD BREAKER, she is looking like a winner in tracks but the choice of a poor rider is baffling?



MACEDONIAN-WINDMILL LADY-MAXIMUS.,



6. ONASSIS has capability to win again though the trip is bit sharp for the top weight to warm up. BIONCONI is the doosra from the stable who may be tried. DEAR HENTY may look good on comparison but I am of the mind that when it won against ONASSIS the later was taking it easy. RANTHAMBORE has excited his followers by some stunning wins, watch for action, looks off on handicap.



ONASSIS-RANTHAMBORE.



7. DICTATOR is going over pet trip, last effort was noteworthy. STAR EMPIRE has been denied as win for multiple reasons, the unlucky one has weak company to beat now. DISTANT PROMISE has won twice but now goes with a weak rider.

10. SHERSHAH is returning from a long break hence needs to be left alone at top weight. STUNTACULAR has handicap chance. MOUNTAIN WIND is a well bred who is getting back to racing mood. EQUIANO can be tried based on form. CLOVES AND CLOVER is tracking well.



STUNTACULAR-MOUNTAIN WIND-SHERSHAH.

Friday, April 6, 2012

DELHI RACES






1. MAJOR GENERAL is a decently bred who has had a number of outings, may be tried. MASTER CHENNA will be fancied based on last good run. ALL WEATHER GOLD has been hardened up with runs, has a well performing bloodline also. WIND is tracking well.



MASTER CHENNA-ALL WEATHER GOLD-MAJOR GENERAL.



2. MOVIE QUEEN ran a good 2nd and has an allowance rider. KOHINOOR BEAUTY has been denied a free run last time, has been waited with. AALI JANAAB was pulled last time and may take it easy for pretences.



KOHINOOR BEAUTY-MOVIE QUEEN.



3. DAZZLING WISE was a good winner who has an allowance jockey now. OEF TOUBA has tracked well after last win, may win if he does not bleed. NARMADA looks out of depth now.



OEF TOUBA-DAZZLING WISE.



4. JOVIAL has a never won over the maximum trip. RAWSOM has handicap chance, last run gives a chance though the trip is unsuitable. SPLENDID GOLD has a stiff penalty.



RAWSOM- JOVIAL.



5. NORTHERN SURPRISE may be fancied in a very weak field. CAPTAIN CONFIDENT is tracking nicely. YAKUT has failed every time. HEAVENLY ANGEL should score now with a try ride. FAR SUPERIOR in another well bred dud.



HEAVENLY ANGEL-CAPTAIN CONFIDENT-YAKUT.

PRETTY GIRL FOR LT GOVERNOR CUP

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

DELHI RACES

1. BAY OF THUNDER is a winner of 4 races and has come down a lot, should win easily if given an honest ride. BEST OF LUCK is a winner of 3 races who goes with low weights. The other two are fillers, look unfit for the trip.

BAY OF THUNDER.

2. TRUSTED MAN won with enough in hand, can be fancied again. ASSERTIVE comes out better on comparison, has age against. SPARKLING GOLD is showing out in works. CHANDELIER who has physical problems can upset.

SPARKLING GOLD-TRUSTED MAN-ASSERTIVE.

3. ENGLISH ELMS ran well and merits a thought here. HIGH SPIRIT impressed in mocks and is tracking well. JUST SUPER is half brother to ODDS N EVENS and will be in the fray. MISS LISCIKI is full sister to FOLLOW ME and impressed in works. SEVEN EIGHT SIX was kept easy when loosing as a hot favorite, back her if odds are good. TINY TEMPER has been consistent.

SEVEN EIGHT SIX-JUST SUPER-TINY TEMPER.

4. ASHWA PANAMA has a chance to show speed but top weight is a concern for the aged horse. BACHA QUERO won at good odds, has penalty to beat. PRETTY GIRL is on the up and looks ready to repeat. KOHINOOR BEAUTY was backed at long odds both ways in last run by people in the know, has a positive rider switch.

PRETTY GIRL-KOHINOOR BEAUTY-ASHWA PANAMA.

5. ODDS N EVENS has a chance, the rookie is not a convincing one. TARAK POWER is an in and out runner from the notorious stables. TEMPTING THOUGHT can upset though the last few runs are much below par. KOHINOOR EMPIRE should place if not given an easy ride. MASTER BLAST looks good at this handicap.

MASTER BLAST-TARAKA POWER-TEMPTING THOUGHT.

6. FLEET OF FEET is a failed favorite who can win now. TARANGIRE may place. EMPIRE MAKER won when not fancied to do so, should place based on that run. GO WITH THE FLOW will be tried at this handicap. ADDICTION has the rider repeating, horse is an aged one who has done nothing mostly.

FLEET OF FEET-TARANGIRE-EMPIRE MAKER

SARVA MANGALA FOR NORTHERN INDIA CUP

Monday, April 2, 2012

DELHI RACES


1. RIOS GIRL disappointed in last run, may e fancied in this class. NAZBATI QUEEN has a tendency to veer out, trainer is weak. PRETTY GOOD looks pretty well placed to win, ignore last run.

PRETTY GOOD-RIOS GIRL.

2. DARING LOVE should look to repeat in this kachra company. GOOD GANBLE has the rider to surprise. EUROPEON STORM by the weak sire can hope to fight out here.

DARING LOVE-EUROPEAN STORM.

3 MOONGATE MAN has handicap in favor, may win. MASTER BELIEF has to beat the stiff penalty as well as the added distance. MASTER BLASTER is a class horse who may get back to form. ENYA was given a pathetic ride, can not gauge this old one .

MOONGATE MAN-MASTER BELIEF-ENYA.

4 THE ROCK was not in the hunt last time, persevere. ZABARDAST is bound to be in the fray over pet trip. RAWSOM has distance issue. ROSE has a chance over this trip with low weights.

THE ROCK-ROSE.

5. ASHWA KUNDAN has run with better lot, should win if he stays well, but the sire is known for producing sprinters mostly and he is conceding weight. FOUR BY FOUR has worked well. MERLIN is looking very keen in tracks. SARVA MANGALA is going over ideal trip and has impressed in mock race.

SARVA MANGALA- ASHWA KUNDAN.

6. MASTER FASTER should go all the way. GLOBAL WIND has an outside chance. ELEMENTO TRANCE may run for money.

MASTER FASTER-GLOBAL WIND.

BULLET CAN SCORE IN R M GOCULDAS MEMORIAL TROPHY

Sunday, April 1, 2012

MUMBAI RACES


1. SOUTHERN GODDESS has a rider change after a fine win recently, owners other horse STAR OF VENUS was given a pathetic ride , the horse could have beaten the fancied owner mate easily. MARTINIQUE can not be fancied after the poor run last time when fancied by most. GREATNESS has age on side, should be fighting out.

STAR OF VENUS-GREATNESS.

2. TUDOR REGENT can win on a genuine try, difficult to guess intentions of this trainer. CLOUD COVER has slid down much in ratings, has a rider who can spring a surprise. FALLEN ANGEL goes with a keen rookie. WINCHESTER has the rider to deliver.

WINCHESTER-TUDOR REGENT-CLOUD COVER.

3. ARMEL has a fighting chance after the last effort. MARENGO is bred averagely, has tracked quite a bit. NEW WINGS is by a mare who has delivered after many years wait, tracks are good. SKYHIGH is a nicely bred got abroad who is in forward condition.

SKYHIGH-ARMEL-MARENGO.

4. SHERIFF has a jockey who has no stick over the stretched trip. CORGITO ERGO SUM is vastly improved this season and would like the trip. SPIRIT OF MERCY can not stay according to me. MOUNTAIN QUEEN is up in class and is yet to harden up for this trip.

CORGITO ERGO SUM-MOUNTAIN QUEEN.

5. BEAUTIFUL STRANGER is a good sprinter but top weight is a bother. STAR TRAINER was not in the hunt in last run, manipulative runs may not see him win even today. BULLET can kill them all, has the handicap in favor. DOVER’S HILL is a youngster on the up.

BULLET-STAR TRAINER-BEAUTIFUL STRANGER.

6. FORTUNE HUNTER goes over ideal distance, jockey has to ride well at top weight. GRAND DESIGN may be fancied by most for the last win but consider what it beat. CARLYLE HILLS was a cheeky winner. PERSIAN has been an in and out runner, was a fighting 3rd. ATLANTIC STAR is maintaining form.

FORTUNE HUNTER-PERSIAN-GRAND DESIGN.

7. ENDLESS VALLEY can win, ran a good 2nd. ENDLESS HORIZON is in fine form. FORTUNER is on the up, has a try rider. MATILDA is tracking well and is bound to be in the fray.

EMERALD VALLEY-MATILDA-ENDLESS HORIZON.

8. BLUE KNIGHT, KASKAZI and NUMISMATIST are the older lot of horses who should fight out here, I feel CAVALARY MAN may take it easy as there is a negative rider change after the last fighting effort recently. The whole lot of four year olds are just fillers here.

NUMISMATIST-KASKAZI-BLUE KNIGHT.
