AN ACQUIRED TASTE FOR R RUIA GOLD CUP

Tuesday, January 15, 2013



MUMBAI RACES

1.        VAIL ROUGE who finished on strongly in last run should merit aserious thought in this mediocre group, has tracked fine thereafter. NEGREDO is a badly failed favorite who goes with a rookie now. QUANDO QUANDO has the advantage of being the only winner in this field who goes with a good rider. FAJR has handicap chance. SUNTAN BEAUTY was a faraway 3rd who can improve .

FAJR-VAIL ROUGE-QUANDO QUANDO.

2.        NEONA concedes weight but is a top filly who goes over a likeable distance, she may go all the way. CENTRE STAGE won easily and has been working well since, has handicap chance. STEP UP is a speedy one at low weights to trouble all with a forward run.

NEONA- CENTRE STAGE

3.        CASTLE TROY ran well enough in first outing and should show improvement now. MAHIKI is working well and should be fancied for the runs so far. CERRO NEGRO is showing out well in tracks, may need distance for winning.  NIGELLA has come down a lot, may be hiding true level.

MAHIKI-CASTLE TROY-CERRO NEGRO.

4.        BLUE ACE has raced against  black types and has yet to regain same form as of last year, can win easily in this suspect field. BARRINGO  has a moderate jockey after a hard fight in last run. OCTOPAUL from the most infamous trainer is a live threat as odds would be very generous today, horse has not been allowed to show true mettle whenever backed by public.

BLUE ACE-OCTOPAUL.

5.        CACTUS CASH is by a good  got abroad mare whose last produce CAESAR’S STAR is a good type. This one is from an exciting prospect freshman sire about whom I had already commented some time back before his offspring TURF STRIKER had one at very long odds , watch this one today.  RIO is by a decent freshman sire and ran well enough in last run to be a strong contender here as he has tracked well. PANTHERA has not lived up to the pedigree and promise. YELLOW ZONE by a top sire of the year has been given an easy outing and should be fancied now.

YELLOW ZONE-RIO-CACTUS CASH.

6.        WINDS OF FORTUNE is in fine form and can carry weight over a trip. WINNING DESTINY has penalty to beat , last win was all the way romp. ZAMBEZI is a bred stayer who is maintaining form. ROSWALD has not shown up to the expectations, has a rider switch now and looks improved in tracks. ANTONIUS MAXIMUS showed improvement in last run. DIVINE SPLENDOUR has low weights after a fighting 2nd.

ROSWALD-DIVINE SPLENDOUR-ZAMBEZI.

7.        The hype of BULLS EYE was shattered in last run when he failed at cramped odds, let us see what the international rider can do, horse looks in top condition. FOREST LEGION was poorly handled in last run by the rookie, gets a top class international rider. RELIC HUNTER was kept on hold in last race, has looks of a winner based on earlier runs and tracks. ARCTIC MINSTREL is tracking well.

RELIC HUNTER-BULLS EYE-FOREST LEGION.

8.        AN ACQUIRED TASTE should be of interest here, he finished on from last position to be a credible 3rd, added distance should be to advantage. HACHIKO has credentials, was kept far too back in  last race. HEMISPHERE has a better jockey now, distance may be an issue. MACHIAVELLIANISM would be the logical favorite after the easy win in Indian 1000 Guineas, has worked well. MONTEZUMA was a disappointing runner, can not win based on last run. SHIVALIK HERO has a better rider for a tactical race, was caught on the post in Pune Derby.

AN ACQUIRED TASTE-MACHIAVELIANISM-SHIVALIK HERO.

9.        WISH UPON A STAR showed improvement in last run, has a good breeding to strike on coming to hand. KALINGA STAR has been given easy runs, trip and handicap suit. SACRE COUER needs to jump out well to be in reckoning. GLOWING MIST was mulish on jump last time, has credentials. AMORA has the good rider repeating, looks tough for win.

KALINGA STAR- SACRE COUER-AMORA.

DAYS BEST===BLUE ACE

DOUBLE--------NEONA  X  YELLOW ZONE
