PUNE RACES

During my Army career soldiers often observed a system of doing “ KADAMTAL”. There were often certain conflicting situations with quick orders, changes and indecision and hence the soldiers would get in a column and star doing KADAMTAL  (standing walk) as nobody knew what to do. The  advise to do KADAMTAL today  by the punters would be very appropriate as the card is full of uncertainties, and a big challenge in finding  winners or hopefuls.


1.        Lagad  family has 5 entries, the trainer is trying to ensure getting another top trainer’s trophy . CAPITANO took down a load of money in last run and now goes with a very mediocre rider. STUNTACULAR is my choice of horse from his stables, was given a full out ride over a long trip in last run. FESTIVAL KNIGHT won all the way and the rookie repeats. WALKING TALL has a handicap chance with a upcoming rider on top. BLESSED has low weights.

STUNTACULAR-FESTIVAL KNIGHT-WALKING TALL.

2.        JEWEL OF THE HILLS is a well bred who has not raced often. MUMBAI KING has a good rider and is tracking well. CHIQUITA placed with a forward run and has been prepared by the trainer away from prying eyes. PRIZE FIGHTER has a rider switch. CLASSIC MONEY from the Surti stables has a good rider and should place for first time in career.

CHIQUITA-MUMBAI KING-CLASSIC MONEY.

3.        SUGAR LOAF is coming to hand, 1400 would have been ideal trip. RANCHO may go for a run only, appears the trainer is saving his wards for Mumbai season. SHERIIF has been given runs. FORTUNE HUNTER has tracked well and has a chance. LIVING THE DREAM is the oldie who impressed in last race. SABA goes with another likely try effort.

LIVING THE DREAM-SUGAR LOAF-FORTUNE HUNTER.

4.        FIREBACK has won in this class and has been tracked well, handicap is stiff. MIRACLE OF MERCY won well and may repeat. LAZOR RAZOR is in form. PRINCESS  KHATOUM  who is a well bred is maintaining form. NEPTUNE is showing speed  in trials after the last comfortable win .

PRINCESS KHARTOUM-NEPTUNE-MIRACLE OF MERCY.

5.        HOT PEPPER comes into reckoning based on Mumbai runs, has been given gates. WINGS OF GLORY has worked well, this rider could not get him to win last season, has a good chance now, the horse  has been given innocuous runs. ZOOM ZOOM who is in fine form will fight out. STARFIRE LADY has a chance to place.

WINGS OF GLORY-ZOOM ZOOM-STARFIRE LADY.

6.        CAESAR’S STAR is a well bred got abroad with a mediocre trainer whose wards take time to come to hand, has been given couple of mocks. SCARLATII was a fighting 2nd and can be involved even over a slightly longer trip. ATTRIBUTE has the breeding to stay and last effort was against better types. RAZEENA is from a non performing stable, may run well.

ATTRIBUTE-SCARLATTI-RAZEENA.

7.        Go for a tea break as there is no  worthy competitor for the top horse of the country, should run at most miserly odds. SWIFT MEMORIES may pip the better handicap horse ASTAPI for place being a better stayer.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT-SWIFT MEMORIES.

8.       STAR GAZING was finishing on with purpose in last run. MATRIOSHKA was a good 2nd who has a good chance.  WIND OF THE HILLS may run an improved race.

MATRIOSHKA-STAR GAZING-WIND OF THE HILLS.

9.        ASTROMIA has gone backwards , may run for money. TUDOR REGENT has a try rookie, is due for a win. VELOCITY has not come to hand, is from a speedy sire. QUANDO QUANDO has the rider for a front run. DOMAIN ANNA nearly pulled a well planned coup at good odds last time, what are the plans now is difficult to visualize. LET IT FLY warmed up to get the piping hot favorite close to the post, has penalty to deal with now.

TUDOR REGENT-QUANDO QUANDO-DOMAIN ANNA.

STAR TRAINER FOR NIRMAL RUIA GOLD TROPHY

Saturday, September 29, 2012


PUNE RACES

1.        FOXTROT is a failed favorite who now goes with a top jockey, but question is where has the horse been tracked . CHASING MEMORIES may run a forward race. MISCHEVIOUS Z showed out in gates, can do well for the new owner. DANCING MONEY is bound to improve after the last easy 3rd, rider repeats.

DANCING MONEY-FOXTROT-MISCHEVIOUS Z 
.
2.        ATLANTIC STAR goes over pet trip and has been sharpened up well on tracks. ASAHI does not impress me here. DAUGHTER OF DESTINY has been hitting the board regularly, will be tried. ADVENTURER is in fine form. FREE FOR ALL from a most non performing old trainer has a chance to place. O’PRINCESS has a try rider at low weights, showed out in gates.

ATLANTIC STAR-FREE FOR ALL-ADVENTURER.

3.        RED TABASCO has come down in class, will be tried for the trainer looking hard for wins. NATIONAL IKON has run with much better types but has not won for a long time, may be tried with the aging jockey. MACHO UNO has not been performing, watch. SIZZLING LOVE should be fighting out. THE SAINT looks to place at low weights.

NATIONAL IKON-RED TABASCO-SIZZLING LOVE.

4.        JUSTICE is a well bred who has been trained well, impressed in mocks. SET TO FLY is bound to be attracting loads of bets today after the last run when the rider used his brains and maturity to insure the horse  did not win as the gambling owner had not backed it, COMMANDER who won that day has done exceedingly well in subsequent run. BURGANDY ROSE is a failed favorite. GRAND DAME has a positive rider switch after some encouraging works. 

SET TO FLY-JUSTICE-BURGUNDY ROSE.

5.        CAPRIOLE looks for an illusive hat trick. STROMBOLI was pulled first, the ran a good 2nd, rider is not finding winners as frequently as before. VOLTERRA ran a rubbish race when favored by most last time, can not be fancied on that run. LIMITLESS HILLS was not disgraced in last race when he fly jumped yet finished on well in closing stages.

STROMBOLI.-LIMITLESS HILLS

6.        CARDINAL can not carry weight, last run was very backwards, now he concedes much weight once again. STAR TRAINER ran a very good race and is the one to watch out for over this trip. DEAR HENRY has been kept easy in both runs and if allowed can fight out, has much better terms now. DANCING GLANCES has struck good form and is doing well over this distance, earlier was considered purely for speed, trainer has realized the correct trip after a long time.

STAR TRAINER-DANCING GLANCES.

7.        MOUNTAIN FORCE is a well bred who won majestically and looks good for repeat performance. LORELEI form the fashionable yet a weak trainer has a handicap chance and a good jockey, but her horses normally don’t perform when backed by the public. WORD OF HONOUR has been given trial runs, may be serious now. PERSIAN was kept too far back and finished on, has tougher company today. NIGELLA from a bad trainer has been sliding down in performance.

MOUNTAIN FORCE-LORELEI-PERSIAN.

8.        VISIONIST is being scrubbed in trials. KING JULIEN has not been correctly handicapped and keeps scoring at good odds, can repeat even here. AUTUMN RUSH has pleased in both wins and can get the hat trick. ZAKHYNTHOS is a maiden running in this class, has failed a number of times yet gets backed at cramped odds, looks forward after the preparation and the improved run.

KING JULIEN-AUTUMN RUSH-ZAKHYNTHOS.

MYSORE RACES

1.        WAR ARTIST is on demotion, has been given gates. MOUNTAIN STORM has been waited with, was not extended in last run, watch for backing. ANGEL QUEEN won under the whip, looks difficult to progress. MOLLY MALONE runs freely when not whipped, should place again. ANGAD can place at long odds, has a better jockey now.

MOUNTAIN STORM-WAR ARTIST-ANGAD.

2.        I f horses could win with lots of tracks and no prepatory runs, ALIANZ would be backable, but knowing the style of this mediocre trainer ,I am of the opinion that there is a flaw in his training methods. STAR OF DIABLO is coming to hand. FRAME PARTNER has come down in scales, has fitness problems. SOUND is the one who has come to hand late in career and may get a win at this age under the good rider.

SOUND-SPARK OF DIABLO-ALIANZ.

3.       ADONIS has won ay these weights in this class before. UNIQUE SHOW was a noticeable finisher who should be fighting out now. FANTASTIC STRIKE has shown speed in latest track, what are the intentions, can’t judge now. GORGEOUS GOLD placed without backing last time, should come under betting from the canny connections today, has a handicap chance.


UNIQUE SHOW-GORGEOUS GOLD-FANTASTIC STRIKE.

4.       OWN ASSET does not impress with this flop rider. KILMINJARO ran well last time, has fitness doubts. GUN POWDER was pulled in last run, may take it easy in this tough company.  ALCAZAR was a very impressive winner who should repeat, tracks are notable. FORMULA ONE has scope to fight out at these weights.

ALCAZAR- -FORMULA ONE-KILMINJARO.

5.       DACERELLA looks better placed than the improving good type GOLDEN VIPER. DROP OF HONEY ran an improved race last time and is the up setter if any for the day, the rider is nothing to talk about but the handicap is very appealing. . ICE MINT has come down with lots of easy runs.

DROP OF HONEY-DANCERELLA-GOLDEN VIPER.

6.        SOUTHERN OPINION has come back to the good form of earlier career, has been prepared meticulously and will be the main  rival. ABSOLUTE MAJORITY has shown lots of maturity in wins, tracks are good. SUPER STORM is a hopeful one who was a notable finisher to BORSALINO in the derby, has been well prepared. All have to contend with the form and awesome speed of EQUINE LOVER who had destroyed the filed in 10000 G. 

EQUINE LOVER-SOUTHERN OPINION-SUPER STORM.

7.        YAMAS has been tracking well for the rider to have a go with. AFRICAN QUEEN is in fine form. DELTA DELIGHT may place here. CINNAMON RUSH is another one who fits the pattern of this sly trainer, he gets his horses to loose under Narredu and the wins with Chauhan.

CINNAMON RUSH-AFRICAN QUEEN-DELTA DELIGHT.

8.        SAVVY CONCEPT may run well with this rider. SEVEN HEAVEN and COWBOY CAL who are well inter connected both lost as favorites in last run, it appears SEVEN HEAVEN will be the fancy today as he is due for a win, the field is weak. MR SUNRISE may place. SPARK OF BLUE has good form.

SEVEN HEAVEN-SAVVY CONCEPT-SPARK OF BLUE.

9.        SOMETHING DIFFERENT is a speedy one, has top weight. FANTASTIC STAR has a weak field to consider here. MISCHIEF may run well under the rookie. OCEANIC WIND has done nothing in last two years, has finally been given a track, if that is any indication. STAR DOM GIRL who placed has a weak rider , can place if tried.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT-FANTASTIC STAR-STARDOM GIRL.

MYSORE RACES

1.      TRESSA has a weak jockey, had finished on well in last run. ABSOLUTE JOY has tracked well, has a chance to do well with the good rider. MOST WANTED appears to have a lot to do, does not impress even with the top rider. SHOURAYA is coming to hand and may run an improved race. THUNDER is a failed favorite who was late to arrive last time, appeals under this jockey. A DAY TO REMEMBER may show improvement over last run.

THUNDER-ABSOLUTE JOY-SHOURAYA.

2.      GO GREEN showed improvement in last effort. ROYAL PRODIGY is tracking impressively and has the improving got abroad rider to boot. SIMPLY SUPER is a failed favorite who has a lot to do even now. ONE FROM A BILLION is working well.

ROYAL PRODIGY-ONE FROM A BILLION-SIMPLY SUPER.

3.      WILL STILL has a try jockey. WALTER  is an oldie who is tracking like youngsters, must place here. SIGNIFIES has worked well, handicap favors. GOLD VENTURE  has not been tracked. THE JAGUAR  would have won with any other trainer, warren singh being an ex jockey is too involved with the competitors personally.

SIGNIFIES-WALTER-WILL STILL.

4.      AHIRA is hopelessly placed on handicap. YANKEE LANE has run well against superior types, can win here on a sincere effort. SWEPT AWAY has been kept easy when favored by punters, may run for money now. EMERALD goes over short trip, something is brewing with this one. SUN DEVICE has good form. ARCHER has tracked well, jockey is a let down.

YANKEE LANE-SWEPT AWAY-SUN DEVICE.

5.      ATTRACTIVE BAY beat a modest field and has tough penalty. ZERMATT would love this trip, tracks are good. SENSATIONAL MOVER may get the signal to perform, can not predict intentions, has tracked well with this rider. VELEVETINE from a weak sire has to run well to win, has form and the rider. GLITERRATO will try to place again. DANCE OF A GENERAL is working well.

ZERMATT-SENSATIONAL MOVER-VELVETINE.

6.      RISING RAINBOW ran a top race last time and it must have pleased the connections hell of a lot. ELITE LAND is the joker in the pack, has been tracking constantly with classic hopefuls of the stable. MAGNITUDE STAR has won this trip all the way earlier, the field is for the taking. MATH’S BABY is bred for sprints, has handicap against, can be fancied for the rider, age and low weights.

MAGNITUDE STAR-MATH’S BABY- ELITE LAND.

7.      ONE TIME MAGIC is working very well, handicap is tough. VIRAT has defied the sizeable penalty with ease, has to be a too good type to win here. BEN TEN has shown good works, can get the extended trip. ABSOLUTE GREY is in fine form. ICE WEAPON can be the upsetter.

ABSOLUTE GREY- BEN TEN-VIRAT.

8.      SPLENDID CAT has a weak rookie, gates were impressive. SUTTON PRINE is pleasing in tracks. SUPER SALONI has been given 10 innocuous runs since last win, may get backing from the connections here. FLIRTING KING can earn once again.

SUTTON PRINCE-SPLENDID CAT SUPER SALONI.
