MANYATTA FOR GOLCONDA DERBY

Sunday, January 27, 2013


GOLCONDA DERBY

1.        ANGEL,S CROWN is a full brother to illustrious XISCA and has won 2 races over staying trips. He has raced twice this season and has failed to do anything of note, in his last run he was  three lengths behind the Bangalore Derby winner RED BARON while conceding 10 Kgs. He has miniscule of hope here.

2.       MANYATTA is a reasonably bred who may find the distance difficult to fathom . The dam PICTURE SHOW never won a race and the elder half brother ENCHANTED FOREST won 2 races over 1200 and 1800 m. MANYATTA himself has won over sprints and gives the impression of being a sprinter to middle distance type, last run in Indian 1000 Guineas where he ran within a head of AN ACQUIRED TASTE who went on to win Ruia Cup beating a classic hopeful field has given hope to the trainer. After all AN ACQUIRED TASTE was also brought up and trained by Narredu himself before the owner moved away from him. The horse has tracked very pleasingly over staying distances and remains in contention today.
3.       SAN RAMON is by a top sire out of the champion Scandinavian mare SORRENTO STEEL with the acclaimed MONTJEU as the maternal grandsire. The horse appears to be a middle distance type, all 3 wins coming over 1400m and the only time he ran over Derby distance as a favorite he was thrashed by a 4 year old GOLDEN RULE.
4.       SHIVALIK STAR is the grandson of GIANTS CAUSEWAY a champion sire in USA, the dam won all 3 races in Dubai and the horse is a NORTHERN DANCER cross deriving stout traits in bloodlines. However the horse has won all 4 races in sprints and consoling run maybe the 2nd to WIND STREAM, an Indian derby hopeful , in Bangalore 2000 Guineas. The horse moves freely in front and looks very doubtful to stay the trip as per his racing style.
5.       STORM TRACKER is by WEATHER WARNING a very moderately performed sire and a well raced and champion mare from Chile WOLANSTONITA. The horse has won both his wins over a mile comfortably and is tracking very well. The top trainer of the country has pitched in here and must be taken as a serious contender. The negative is that the horse has yet to race against quality opposition.
6.       TINTINNABULATION is  by INTIKHAB  a highly rated sire and has been hardened up in his racing career across the country. The horse, winner of 4 races  is a middle distance to moderate stayer winning distance averaging around 1800m. The horse had run about 10 lengths behind COMMANDER in Pune Derby and 4 lengths behind SNOWSCAPE in last run hence has to do much better to win  here.
7.       VIJAY’S CHAMP is by TOCCET a very well raced and nicely performed sire out of a non raced mare with average bloodlines.The horse has won 3 times and the last two over 2200m but the quality of opposition has been moderate. Looks out of  handicap as well as depth in this field.

8.       CHIRON is by  a good sire out of a staying type mare CHILLIANDRINA who won her 3 races over 1800 to 2000m. The earlier produce have been winners but lacking any class as such. The horse is in good form with two back to back wins. The horse should run as a long odds here.

9.       PERFECT  is by a very ordinary sire COOL CREEK and is just a filler in the race. The horse has won once only and the win over Derby distance is a poor factor for any hope.


10.   RATHAM is an ordinary bred, the tail line is definitely very stout but class is missing.  The 3rd place in Bangalore Oaks may be considered.
MANYATTA--SHIVALIK STAR- TINTINABULATION


RED BARON FOR BANGALORE DERBY

BANGALORE RACES

1.        RESURGENT  ran well to place at top weight in last run and the rider repeats. TOWERS OF HANOI was very well prepared but ran like a dud last week, can not do well so suddenly. ASSURANCE sees the return of this rider to ride for MAM after many years, the horse has not been tried last couple of times And looks good on handicap.SUPER SALONI  has been given so many runs that even the trainer may not be able to count, still I don’t fancy it to do well.BALBOA with the work jockey can run for place money.

ASSURANCE-RESURGENT-BALBOA.

2.        ARABIAN WARRIOR has a very strong tail line, the sire has been average and is not precocious in produce, the colt has worked impressively. BRONZINO from a very moderate sire has worked well. HOMERIC ran green as a favorite and looks vastly improved, the sire is yet to get any winner and the tail line is ordinary. STRENGTH AND WONDER is another failed favorite who ran way wards, the trainer’s horses dislike to run well when backed down heavily, this one is now catching the eye with smart works. SUPREME REGIME is a fine bred who looks a bit under prepared.

STRENGTH AND WONDER-HOMERIC-ARABIAN WARRIOR.

CINNAMON RUSH is an in and out racer, has been given gates, flopped as a favorite and now gets a good rider. VEYRON has impressed in tracks and has a useful rider.

VEYRON- THRILL SEEKER-FOSWELL.

6.        MATHS BABY should struggle over this trip, is very moderately bred. RED BARON is the grand son of DANEHIL and has been running well with top weight at the main centre, gets a very good foreign rider also. SUPER STORM was a fading runner in Mysore Derby, may not like the distance , has been prepared meticulously. The fillies  look weaker on comparison, SNOW BIRD may be considered for the last two staying wins.

RED BARON-SUPER STORM-SNOW BIRD.

7.       COURAGE IN RED won in style in a terms race, distance may not suit this front running type. AUBURN BEAUTY has done very well in graded races and has a good chance in this handicap. PANAMERA may run well, ignore last run. SICILY is looking for hat trick in a very tough field. SUSSEX DOWNS should be fighting out at low weights, has a chance. MOUNTAIN RANGE has been heavily penalized for the going away win .

AUBURN BEAUTY-SUSSEX DOWNS-PANAMERA.

8.        SERENGETI has an allowance rider after the last 2nd. ICE KINGDOM was nabbed by a handicapper horse in last run, needs to be followed. STARSTRUCK ran a mighty forward race, lost on the post. PRINCE OF DARKNESS is a well bred who goes with a top rider now.

ICE KINGDOM-PRINCE OF DARKNESS-SERENGETI.

9.        ADONIS  gets a try rider now, last effort was an easy one with a rookie. YAMAS has been given gates, may run well. I repeat my choice of LOWNDES SQUARE, has to win some day and why not with this good rider. MYSTERE ran well last time and should be fighting out now, has weights in favor.

LOWNDES SQUARE-MYSTERE-ADONIS.
