HEMISPHERE FOR TURF CHAMPIONSHIP RACE

Sunday, March 31, 2013


MUMBAI RACES

1.        ROSWALD and STARRING are racing at much different terms then in last clash when the former went all the way and cruised home easily. The later has an advantage of 9 Kgs this time and should be able to come better off, the horse would have won much earlier but for the crafty trainer whose horses are difficult to predict.

STARRING-ROSWALD.

2.        CAPRI has form and a bunch of non performers to beat, top weight may be a worry but the rider has to force the issue. GOTTAWEARSHADES may lead in,  last run was bad. MANYARA may improve on the last effort to place. TOP TRICK has some potential and the jockey is scoring lately. LAZOR RAZOR is a winner of 2 races who has slid down to this level, the trainer is an upset specialist.

CAPRI-GOTTAWEARSHADES-TOP TRICK.

3.        WINSTON runs again and so soon, handicap is against and SET TO FLY had beaten him easily earlier. JIMBO is tracking very well, has won all 3 races in sprints. SET TO FLY has handicap in favor and gets a strong rider to repeat.

SET TO FLY-WINSTON.

4.        CAMPEON was a decent 2nd who has matured well. ISADORA is a top bred and has been tracking very noticeably, last run was not as per expectations and he is likely to take time, may be fancied as the field is mostly non raced. BEFOREMEMORYFADES has been prepared for long and looks a bit forward. INTESAR is a well bred who may get involved. MINT APPROACH is by a good mare and tracks are suggestive.

CAMPEON-ISADORA-MINT APPROACH.

5.        NOVAK was a faraway4 th , looks tough for win. LIGHT MY WAY was a struggling 3rd who goes with an allowance rider, has not won for long. PERFECT STRENGTH is being scrubbed in works, trip suits. EQUINOX is an unreliable one, may run well with this rider.  STARFIRE LADY has to improve to get on board. VINCERO is another oldie who may earn something in this very suspect field.

LIGHT MY WAY-NOVAK-VINCERO.

6.        BRUNELLO may do well due to the rider, has younger horses to deal with. KISMAT had won very well earlier, distance is ideal. REINSTATE ran a good race in older lot and should be watched for upset. QUEEN’S CAMP should like this distance, has won in lower class comfortably. ZANTHOS was late to reach in last race, has not been raced over this trip before. STAR BUILDER has been given any number of reducing runs.
KISMAT-BRUNELLO -ZANTHOS.
7.        ONASSIS comes into strong contention based on Invitation run, has not been worked in tracks and the trainer has younger horses in the fray, difficult to assess intent. RANTHAMBORE has always been thereabouts, last narrowly in the Super mile. HEMISPHERE is the one who has promise, has always finished late, goes at low weights with a no nonsense rider. MANYATTA can be in the frame if one goes by the 1000 Guineas run, last run was very disappointing. MONTEZUMA is running too soon, why make it run?
HEMISPHERE-RANTHAMBORE-ONASSIS.
8.        ACCLAIMED is a well bred and may need a run here as the 2nd string rider has been chosen. BLAZING FIRE is showing speed in tracks. OSRIC has been given an easy run. QUEST FOR LOVE has been well tracked and may do well. TAHRIR has been hardened with runs, has a good chance now. BARONESS is from a decent mare and should be in contention based on runs.
TAHRIR-BARONESS-BLAZING FIRE.
9.        CAPITANO who placed in last run has not been tracked, has been unreliable. SARISKA has form and age on side. FOLLOW ME has a rookie, horse can surprise. MACHO UNO can place. SPEED BABY has been given innocuous runs, may sprint well.
SARISKA-CAPITANO-FOLLOW ME.

LAMBADA FOR NORTHERN INDIA CUP

Friday, March 29, 2013


DELHI RACES

1.        MISS STUNNING does not have winning tendencies, has been tried often. BLACK PARTRIDGE is the aged one who lost narrowly last time and may be favored to win. MASQUERATE has not won for two years, may surprise. EMPIRE MAKER is at a low weight and can go all the way with this rider.

EMPIRE MAKER-BLACK PARTRIDGE.

2.        NIZBATI QUEEN has run well under this rider and may continue to do so. MORNING DEVOTION was clearly under the starters order yet the powerful lobby of the owner got him declared a non starter in last race when favored by the public, should open as a favorite again, I don’t see how she can be bet upon. SARVAMANGLA runs after a break, may have dropped form. CHARDI KALA was a forward runner who may score.

CHARDI KALA-MORNING DEVOTION.

3.        THE MAFIA had failed earlier in the season as a favorite over this trip in higher class, may win now. EL SHARARA has been in good form and has won this trip before. MASTER BLAST is tracking fine. ALABASTER can stay the trip, has been tracking regularly.

THE MAFIA-EL SHARARA.

4.        JASHN E JEET may find the trip unsuitable. MASTER FIGHTER is full brother to FGLYCY’S BAY and is tracking fine. LAMBADA is a well bred who comes into top spot based on last good run.

LAMBADA-MASTER FIGHTER.

5.        MASTER GOLD is at a tough handicap and is unreliable. SMOKEY GREY is impressive in works. FEARLESS NEGOTIATOR  is tracking well and is due to do well. CREEK WOOD ran a good 2nd and may improve. ENTER AND CANTER is a flop horse who now gets an experienced rider.

SMOKEY GREY-CREEK WOOD -MASTER GOLD.

6.        MISS SMASHING runs too son again, may place as she is young. DARING LOVE has been well manipulated to get strong at the fag end of the season, looks for hat trick, rider is weak. DANCING BABE will look to repeat. NONIOS may get on board. NAIKTARIN impressed in the upset win earlier in the season, has low weights.

NAIKTARIN-DANCING BABE-MISS SMASHING.

RAJSAMMAN FOR COLOURS OF HOLI TROPHY

Thursday, March 28, 2013


MUMBAI RACES

1.        AWESOME SMILE gets a rider after many easy runs, is due for a win. CLASSIC RULER is the oldie who finished fastest in last race, gets an allowance rider for try. BELLE BRISE has tracked well and the trainer is now in try mode, the horse had won very easily last year. VICTOIRE is the form horse. BE POSITIVE goes over extended distance.

AWESOME SMILE-BELLE BRISE-CLASSIC RULER.

2.       AMISTAD failed to fight out as a hot favorite, but then the opposition today is beatable. CURIOSITY looks much improved from the tracks and should be  a serious threat to all. PHELPS and GRAND DUKE can hope to place if the first two mentioned don’t oblige.

AMISTAD-CURIOSITY.

3.        AMAZING SMILE is yet to earn place money, last run on board is an indication as is  the experienced jockey. DAUGHTER OF DESTINY can win if things work out favorably, nobody can predict Jodha horses as they perform on and off. MONEY STRIKE has been on the fringes, can win in this weak set up. Aptly named LAURUS TIKATI has remained a  non winner LAURU so far, may surprise.

AMAZING SMILE- MONEY STRIKE-LAURUS TIKATI.

4.        WINSTON has run well in last few outings, top weight is a bother. STEP UP has won 3 races but in weaker company, has a chance to upset. MYLA ROSE is a well bred who has come to hand late and the last win was awesome, maintains form.

MYLA ROSE-WINSTON.

5.        EDWINA has no tracks, may have been prepared in a private way , has age on side. AFROJACK is due for a win, failed last time when favored. MATILDA is working well. SHABDEEZ has a positive rider switch. MOUNTAIN SONG and MOUNTAIN MYNNAH have sprinting credentials, one of them may get involved.

AFROJACK-EDWINA-SHABDEEZ.

6.        HURRICANE WIND is on the up and despite the top weight should be in with a chance. CHEMIN DE FER ran well enough last time after a long break. MONTEZUMA was given a questionable ride when a hot favorite, should be persisted with. HALLE was a good 2nd in weaker company.

MONTEZUMA-HURRICANE WIND.

7.        PROTECTOR OF PARIS is by a top mare, this half brother to BULLSEYE looks a bit soft in works. RAJSAMMAN from a strong tail line in breeding has impressed most in tracks and can do well. REMEMBER ME was beaten soundly by a too good AMELIA in last run, stable is not punter friendly with favorites mostly biting the dust. SANSANI is half brother to LITTLE LION  and has impressed in gates. ZAAGROS may place.

RAJSAMMAN-REMEMBER ME-PROTECTOR OF PARIS.

8.        ARABIAN LORD could not sustain in the straight and lost as a favorite, has a weak rookie now. PURPLE MOON was a late 2nd who should be trying. TWITILLATOR from a very weak stable won easily and can repeat  with the allowance rider. ATHOS is still a maiden, last run has bought him on.

ATHOS-TWITTILATOR-ARABIAN LORD.

BRAHAMASTRA FOR LT COL GOVIND SINGH , VRC, MEMORIAL CUP

Monday, March 25, 2013


DELHI RACES

1.        The race should be contested by the 8 year olds. REVENGEFUL KNIGHT and THE ROCK were racing closely last time but they concede crucial weight to SADDLER’S RULE who is yet to win here but is working well nowadays.

SADDLER’S RULE-REVENGEFUL KNIGHT.

2.        CAPT CONFIDENT has form but goes with a weak rider. FAST AND FURIOUS should fight out with ZABARDAST for getting on board. SO SWEET is a sitter on handicap, has been tracked well.

SO SWEET-CAPT CONFIDENT.

3.        FOREST RANGER won with authority and should be trying to repeat, concedes crucial weight. JASHN E JEET should be a serious candidate after the fine run in CTS. DAZZLING WAVE is working very well, was a close 3rd. LIGHT IN STAR is a better bred but was thrashed in last run. SUPER SELECT is from a fine sire and may do well despite an average rider.

JASHN E JEET-DAZZLING WAVE-FOREST RANGER.

4.        BRAHAMASTRA is a good type who can give weight as well as a beating to these hopefuls. ON SPOT is tracking well. MASTER TIGER who lost narrowly has a chance here. GALA  was 4th in a million race and can do well , choice of a weak rider is a negative.

BRAHAMSATRA-MASTER TIGER-GALA.

5.        CRUSOE should be a main contester based on last two good runs. WOLVERINE who is still a maiden goes with an average rookie. BLACK PARTRIDGE should run much better than last time, in and out running is very much acceptable with the authorities here, remember how NAIKTARIN reversed form with a class improvement in one weak and got away. MASTER PIECE is at low weights.

BLACK PARTRIDGE-WOLVERINE-CRUSOE.

6.        Looks very difficult for MISS SMASHING to repeat. BRIGHT HEART has scope for winning again. SEVEN EIGHT SIX may be tried , has been performing in patches. CHEPETZUHA has been earning well and can do well again.

BRIGHT HEART-CHEPETZUHA-SEVEN EIGHT SIX.

Since I am going out to CHANDIGARH to attend a wedding I regret that I shall not be able to post for a couple of days.
Happy Racing during the Bangalore Season End.

MINISTER FOR R J KOLAH TROPHY


MUMBAI RACES

1.        GARARO showed fighting abilities by coming back into contention with a 2nd run in last race, gets a better rider today. XENIA can run a good race with Zervan. ARABIAN GLORY won well, has to face penalty now. WALKING TALL is a game old horse who can sprint well, has a chance to do well.

GARARO-XENIA-WALKING TALL.

2.        A  very interesting race since none of the older horses have won a single race and the two 4 year olds have never been on board in their career. PUMBA has some semblance of staying blood and last 4th over 1800 m can be factored. JOCELYN is from a decent sire but an unraced dam, has been sent on a good gallop and that raises hopes. CAVALARY MAN has often been sent out to race over staying trips but with poor results, current form is poor.

PUMBA-JOCELYN.

3.        IN THE LIMELIGHT has been given a run, looks out of form. MON AMI comes into strong contention based on the run when he was disqualified. GOLDEN MEMORY may be able to do well, looks weak against MON AMI. TELL ME MORE has slid down in scales and has a rookie over pet trip.

MON AMI--GOLDEN MEMORY- TELL ME MORE.

4.        ANGEL’S CHILD has been given a run and is galloping well, doesn’t look convincing at this weight. PAPAKURA is the form horse who has done well in the season and is working well. BIZARRO is a better horse than what can be seen on the card, has handicap in favor.

BIZARRO-PAPAKURA.

5.        BRAVE FIGHTER has been tracked, that doesn’t happen very often with this trainer’s horses. DISTANT PROMISE was not a serious runner last time, has scope to do well. MIRACLE OF MERCY  can do better than last 4th, trip is ideal. PTOLEMY is the oldie who is at a good handicap.

DISTANT PROMISE-PTOLEMY-MIRACE OF MERCY.

6.        HILL RANGER is a speedy one with a top rider. CELSIUS won warding off, has a rider to repeat. REIN IN SPAIN has been given runs, may surprise. DIAMOND ZIP is a winner of 4 sprints and has a scope over pet trip on trying. SMALL TREASURE was a noticeable runner who has the rookie repeating. MUMBAI KING has worked pleasingly after the last win. TROPICAL ZONE has low weights in current form.

HILL RANGER-SMALL TREASURE-MUMBAI KING.

7.        ACE CONNECTIONS has been prepared well, the dam is a well bred black type. ALEJOR has a weak jockey after a suggestive run. GALLANT LAD is a well bred form a very speedy type mare, needs a run. MINISTER  comes into serious reckoning based on last good run under a work rider. PORTA BANUS who has tracked well was in betting order and that gives rise to suspicions about the nature of run which was given, the trainer has a long history of non performance of public favored wards. SULTAN OF SWING does not impress in this group. TICKER TAPE PARADE has tracked well, needs a run. VEENA’S STAR from the top sire has matured on and should run well.

MINISTER-ACE CONNECTIONS-VEENA’S STAR.

8.        KRYPTON had led in well and should be a fighting contender now. QUEEN was an impressive winner who has rookie to shed the weight penalty. SHERLOCK HOLMES has been given runs by work jockeys, rider has to do well to get this one at the finish ahead of others. SUZONIA is showing out in tracks. DANCING SPLENDOUR and WIND OF THE HILLS were close to each other earlier in the season, the later was not handled well, can win on try, the trainer is a dilemma.

DANCING SPLENDOUR-KRYPTON-SHERLOCK HOLMES.

DELHI RACES

1.        DARING LOVE who was brought down a lot in scales scored an easy victory and should repeat easily in this set up. MASQUERATE has a try rider and may be tried. ENTER AND CANTER is down to pittance level and may be ridden out.

DARING LOVE-ENTER AND CANTER.

2.        MISS SMASHING is a weak filly and despite the very ordinary field  may struggle to win. MASTER BOOM is also the winner of a race but has a weak rider. ALL WEATHER STAR may surprise. CANADIAN GOLD is the one who has worked a lot but lacks run for a long time, still low weights may be factored.

MISS SMASHING-CNANDIAN GOLD.

3.        MISS STUNNING has not been able to win despite some tries, lacks finishing abilities. BLACK PARTRIDGE has not won for years, has a try rider. WOLVERINE goes with a rookie after some promising runs. CONQUEROR’S FLAME is at attractive weight.

BLACK PARTRIDGE-CONQUEROR’S FLAME.

4.        GOLD SPARK retains form, has penalty to beat. TRUCULENT STAR may run well with this allowance rider, looks fit. MASTER CHAMPION has been on the up, looks tough to win straightaway in top class. MARHABA is the youngster at low weights who may strike.

MARHABA-TRUCULENT STAR-MASTER CHAMPION
.
5.        GLOBAL WIND ran a much improved race and the rookie repeats. NIZBATI QUEEN is an in and out runner, difficult to assess intent, has form. DAZZLE has been a big failure all through the winters. The handicapper here allows runners who have raced previously in better centres to run at same handicap and they make a killing if fit, FAST AND FURIOUS looks to repeat after an easy win.

FAST AND FURIOUS-GLOBAL WIND-DAZZLE.

6.        MISS VENUS is tracking well, ignore last run. YALAMLAM is from a scheming trainer, has impressed in works and may run well. RIOS GIRL has a rider switch. CHEPETZUHA is at striking weights, may surprise in present form.

YALAMLAM -CHEPETZUHA-MISS VENUS.

THE ROCK FOR INDIAN ARMY CUP

Monday, March 18, 2013


DELHI RACES

1.       A very weak field and on paper FIREFLY stands out as she has placed in both outings, the question mark is over intent as a very non regular work jockey rides. A better rider has CATCH THE EYE as his mount, but this filly is from a very weak sire. One of the “master’s” may get interested, both look backwards in trials.

FIREFLY-CATCH THE EYE.

2.        JAZBA has matured with runs and stands a chance, may need distance  for a serious try . ZIP AWAY should be the fancy based on last good run under a rookie and the rider switch. BERETTA from a speedy sire may run well. LIGHT IN  STARS has been tracked extensively after the lameness, she scores on good breeding. TOP NOTCH has done well so far and is working well.

ZIP AWAY-TOP NOTCH-LIGHT IN  STAR.

3.        AMAZING MASTER is the youngster who retains form. HAPPY GO LUCKY has been tracked and distance suits. RAWSOM who won exactly a year ago has tracked after long, a good indication if any.

RAWSOM-HAPPY GO LUCKY.

4.        SELF ASSURANCE who lost narrowly may be the prime fancy now but faces penalty. MASTER MESSI has lengths to cover, looks difficult. ICE ON THE MOON who has worked well can upset if rookie rides well.

ICE ON THE MOON-SELF ASSURANCE.

5.        FORST ONE who lost closely last time is tracking well. BLADES OF OLYMPUS is the youngster who is on the up, 4th in Colts Trials was a fair effort. THE ROCK has not won for long, last effort was a fair improvement. ROYAL CREST has been prepared. NAIKTARIN was given a half  hearted ride last time.

THE ROCK-BLADES OF OLYMPUS-ROYAL CREST.

6.        KING CHALLENGE has been given dubious runs by weak riders , has not won for long, this rider may get a gamble. SADAJIT is the one who has been hooked in some of the runs, can win on backing. SAIRA on demotion has worked well. DARING LOVE has been waited with, will win soon. THE DUKES  has shown zest in works, may do well. RUBY MOON ran an improved race, has a handicap chance.

SADAJIT-RUBY MOON-SAIRA.

STARRY EYES AND SCENIC WARRIOR FOR FILLIES AND COLTS CHAMPIONSHIP RESPECTIVELY

Sunday, March 17, 2013



MUMBAI RACES

1.        Out of the 4 year olds the two ladies deserve a serious look, STARFIRE LADY has placed twice and is tracking. MIDNIGHT LADY who bled in last run is showing speed in works, both have the riders for the job. RUN LIKE THE WIND had try to do just that exactly a year back when he was neck shy at the post, may be the time is significant. The scheming trainer Antia has MCQUEEN who has been given 7 runs since he placed. TWITILLATOR belongs to a trainer who makes his living out of what?, his lot of oldies look underfed, this one was a noticeable runner last time.

STARFIRE LADY- MIDNIGHT LADY-RUN LIKE THE WIND.

2.       WINDMILL LADY has been running well this season and now tackles a very modest set of runners. CASINO JACK has been tracked. EMERALD FORTUNE was a good 2nd to TAJ E SHAHI, should be trying under the rookie. EQUIANO has won a race before. LAZOR RAZOR who has done nothing so far may come alive in this weak field.

WINDMILL LADY-EMERALD FORTUNE-EQUIANO.

3.        CLINTON is a good type who keeps defying the handicap and retains form. OKAVANGO won well last time but I feel the favorite was not interested at the miserly odds so nothing much can be taken from that win. SPIRIT OF MERCY was a fighting 2nd to AMBROSIA, may reproduce that type of run. BLUE ACE was outpaced at distance post by the too good HACHIKO, can win at low weights. 

BLUE ACE-CLINTON.

4.        SOPHISTICATED defied the normal penalty easily and won long way from home, has top weight again, should do well. MOUNTAIN FORCE is tracking well. NUSH is a well bred filly who has come to hand and goes at low weights with the top rider.

NUSH-SOPHISTICATED.

5.        The well built AMARA won a good punt under a work jockey and has worked well, may repeat.  CALYPSO QUEEN was late to get up to AIGION, the later has scored easily again. PRIZE FIGHTER is tracking fine. SEA PEARL fought and lost , looks improved in tracks.

CALYPSO QUEEN-SEA PEARL-AMARA.

6.        The tainted trainer’s FOND MEMORIES is from a Derby winning tail line and has run against superior types, tracks are good. ONE WISH is not far behind in breeding and the last win in first outing suggests lots of scope in coming races, will fight out. HOT PEPPER was kept wide yet finished on well.

FOND MEMORIES-ONE WISH.

7.        LITTLE LOVE should be the top fancy here after his runs in the multi millions. BARONESS was a noticeable 2nd in last run, curiously gets a lower status jockey now. COSMIC DANCER looks much improved after the last suggestive run. FLASH is tracking well. INVINCIBLE  appears to have been effected by a set back, needs this run.

LITTLE LOVE-BARONESS-COSMIC DANCER.

8.        TRANCE is from a top sire and has been tracking very well after the good  win. STARRY EYES was shocked at the finish by the winner in PBMM and all have to get near this one, is in fine fettle. CIRCLE OF LIFE from the top trainer has had a nice opener and may run well. INDIAN TOUCH and SOUTHERN SKY from the MAM stables have capabilities, should be a threat as both have qualities yet to be seen.

STARRY EYES-TRANCE-INDIAN TOUCH.

9.        BOMBARDIER who won a sprint is bred to stay, retains form. CELTIC KING won very well over a mile and has been well tracked. FALCON was a good 5th in PBMM and gets a decent chance here. SCENIC WARRIOR had caught the eye with an electrifying finish to  SILVER ARROW and can win if handled well by this out of form rider.

SCENIC WARRIOR-FALCON-CELTIC KING.

10.    EDITH PIAF who has been prepared needs a run, can not be fancied at top weight. SONG OF SPARROW and BLIND DATE ran close but I favor the later who gets a top rider to turn the tables. ZARACHA who has not won for years goes with hope at low weights.

BLIND DATE-SONG OF SPARROW-ZARACHA.

BANGALORE RACES

1.        ACE ANGEL STAR is a well bred colt who still looks soft in works, needs runs. ROYAL SALUTE was a fair 3rd who can place again. ARZIKI is from a very ordinary mare , has shown some encouraging works, distance will suit. ISN’T SHE SPECIAL has worked well and looks in good condition, may do well in first run. MADAME BOVARY has run well in last two outings and despite being from a moderate sire may get home. TIJUCA FOREST will do well over this trip, had finished on last time.

MADAM BOVARY-IS’NT SHE SPECIAL-ARZIKI.

2.        ALL CLEAR is working well and runs on demotion, may do well if given a good ride. STARSTRUCK has the rider repeating after a try run. BUZZWORD goes with a rookie, has a handicap chance. GOLDEN HAVEN is at low weights and may surprise. 

STARSTRUCK-ALL CLEAR-BUZZ WORD.

3.        RATHAM is disadvantageously placed at handicap, has shown good tracks. APOLLO  KING is in galloping form. SPANIARD who ran a good 2nd after a long break has been well prepared. COOL APPROACH came out of hibernation and placed at good odds for the canny trainer, may do so again. SANDSTORM is in fine form and low weights may favor

        SPANIARD-RATHAM-COOL APPROACH.

4.       BOLD NATURE who placed last time has been prepared well by the betting stables. SUPER SALONI can win if backed, she is a winner of 2 races and has been given so many runs you can’t imagine. HAUTE ECOLE a well bred has been spoilt by the below par trainer. LAW OF THE LAND won well and has been tracking. 

SUPER SALONI-BOLD NATURE-HAUTE ECOLE.

5.        RIDGEWAY is tracking well but looks very difficult to score at this handicap. VALAHAK and INQUISITION were improved runners in QUICK ENOUGH’S win, both have a chance to fight out here. ARCHIBALDO has been heavily penalized for last good win and has to be exceptionally talented to defy handicap further. I have been nominating MAGNITUDE STAR in a couple of earlier races and despite looking tough on comparison, this horse can win if given a try run.

MAGNITYUDE STAR-VALAHAK-INQUISITION.

6.        ABNOBA was an eye catching forward runner in last race, can this rookie hold his nerves? INDIAN has been an exciting horse for this average trainer, meets better types now. MOUNTAIN HIGH maintains form. CATAMARAN is a failed favorite with a so so jockey. HACKETT has been thereabouts in last few runs, may be tried.

ABNOBA-HACKETT-CATAMARAN.

7.        SUPER SURPRISE showed improvement in last run, has an allowance rider now. SIX SHOOTER had won well and meets aged horses again. LOWNDES SQUARE is due for a win , has been tipped by me before. SPARKLING CAT won well on backing and will try to repeat. RICH RADIANT was outpaced last time, has scope to win here. 

LOWNDES SQUARE-RICH RADIANT-SIX SHOOTER.

8.        MOUNTAIN BEAUTY has a rider who is yet to show out here. MONEY BALL will win if backed down, has slid down in handicap for long. THE GUARDIAN is a sparingly raced who is working well. AMAR PREM goes at low weights.

BANGALORE RACES

1.        MISTER GREY has not run for some time, may run for money. TRANSFORMER has been given easy runs, the horse is showing out in works and should be a hot favorite based on sire and preparation , the field is for the taking. BIG COPPER PENNY is tracking nicely and may run a forward race. LAGOONA  who ran in a million race may be a candidate for places.STIMULATE who is tracking well needs a run.

TRANSFORMER-LAGOONA-STIMULATE.

2.        SHIVALIK FIRE is a failed favorite who goes over extended trip  with an allowance rider. ENTERTAINER has not raced for long, has tracked well and showed out in gates, may do well as handicap favors. SANS FRONTIERS is a top bred who is on the up, last win in lower class was awesome, has been worked well.  I SAY has been a no show in last few runs, tracks show improvement.

SHIVALIK FIRE - SANS FRONTIERS-I SAY.

3.        ABSOLUTE RED is from a good sire, was expected to win a graded race in first outing and failed, has improved. CAPITALIZE has been well prepared and looks quite forward. INVINCIBLE PRINCE is from a speed influencing international sire , the horse was given an easy outing, is catrching the eye of the track reporters. MAN OF VISION is well performed and matured horse who  will be fancied again, had failed narrowly as a favorite.

MAN OF VISION- ABSOLUTE RED-INVINCIBLE PRINCE.

4.        OPEN PAGE is in fine form, was not tried in last run, gets a rookie, may win. AMAZON BAY has worked well. DEEP BLUE SEA surprised the heavily backed favorite on the post, can show improvement on that win. ICE STORM has tracked very noticeably with good type horses, watch the run. MARKET MAKER and ROYAL ROMARIO have both tracked well but their race performances have been disappointing so far.

OPEN PAGE-DEEP BUE SEA-ICE STORM.

5.        ESTEBAN was a favorite who was interfered with badly at the start , last at bend but flew in like the wind, needs another chance. ANONYMOUS was slow off yet ran well enough, has shown good works. COURAGE IN RED  can speed up, has been on the fringes. VIOLENT STORM may place if ridden well. IMPRESSIVE BOLT has low weights, may do well. VOLCANO is in forward condition, goes at attractive weights.

ESTEBAN-COURAGE IN RED-VOLCANO.

6.        SHADES OF SCARLET who won well backed retains form. MAGNOMICAL showed a bit of improvement in last run, has been backwards for long. ASTONISHING has been worked, has not earned for long and may surprise. INSPIRATOR often keeps the “khabri’s”  interested, will be tried. SWEET ANGEL is tracking well, has attractive weights.

SWEET ANGEL-SHADES OF SCARLET-INSPIRATOR.

7.        CASH MY WAY  has a good chance in this unprepared lot of fillies. KENTUCKY ROSE is by a good sire and was late in finishing on, may show improvement now. SUE NEVELL has tracked very well and is from a  decent sire, the trainer hardly gets any winners which is a big negative. VIGOROUS  has been very well  prepared and should be in the fighting line after the easy opening run.


CASH MY WAY-VIGOROUS-SUE NEVELL.

8.        HATCHET HARRY is in earning form and can get this race if the rookie rides well. ALPINE SHINE has a try rider after placing last time. DIAMOND FLAME is the other one from the Caddy lot who won very easily and has an experienced rider for a repeat try. RAJA’S PET can do well at low weights, has gate problems.
