MARIINSKY FOR 1000 GUINEAS

Saturday, November 30, 2013


BANGALORE RACES.

1. FORMULA ONE may run well, has been given an easy run. VISTABELLA has been tracked, may be considered for the fact bthat he failed twice as favourite. KING OF HEROES ran a good race and gets a good rider now. BLIZZARD OF OZZ at bottom weight should be fancied, was a front runner who went wide after the bend as a favourite.

BLIZZARD OF OZZ-KING OF HEROES-VISTABELLA.

2. The nicely bred BARACCHUS has been well prepared. NESTO has speedy parents and should run a forward race. ATMOS is from the precocious sire and has been tracked well. SMART CONNECTIONS is notable in morning works.

ATMOS-NESTO-BARACCHUS.

3.RAKSHITA goes over ideal trip with a forceful rider, should win if backed in the ring. THUNDER has a useful handicap but jockey is non performer. NATION’S GLORY had gone wide when fancied last time, has been trained since. EMPHATIC VICTORY is down in scales.

RAKSHITA-NATION’S GLORY-EMPHATIC VICTORY.

4.SILHOUTTE has been working fine and has a rider switch. TRADITION has good early speed, has been given a run. OPTIMUS ZONE impressed with a forward run under a work jockey. ZIZZI needs a run, lacks preparation, may surprise. SUPER SILVER was pulled in last run, has a handicap chance.

SUPER SILVER-OPTIMUS ZONE-SILHOUTTE.

5. SEE BRIGHT was kept back and alerted a bit late in last run, has a better rider to be forceful now. CHIRON has tracked for long, may be difficult in this lot to be in money. ZERMATT won all the way and in current form will make them all run. GREY CONNECTION had run in shaping like a winner till nabbed, gets another chance. COCTAIL CIRCUIT at low weight with a good jockey should fight out.

SEE BRIGHT-ZERMATT-COCKTAIL CIRCUIT.

6.Ordinarily 3 year olds are favoured to win as they step up into class races against 4 year olds etc but in this race I suspect the pair of 3 year olds may not be that sure a bet. SUPREME REGIME had won twice in summers b ut has been a failure since then and may have tracked well alongside MUIROI but lacks an authentic forward run. MADAME BOVARY has been unnecessarily penalised heavily for 4th position in Mysore 1000Guineas. The pair has a serious threat from DIAMONITE who has been given a run and is working very well. INQUISITION at top weight may make it interesting by running a forward race, has won at this level before.

DIAMONITE-SUPREME REGIME-INQUISITION.

7.The feature race should be won by MARIINSKY who has good credentials and is in fine fettle. The only blemish is that she finished behind BEAUTY IS TRUTH in summers but the later has not been the same since and is yet to win her maidens race. The challenge should emerge from ISN’T SHE SPECIAL who is nicely bred and is in fine nick. The good one from Mysore, KETURAH has come up a lot and may be fancied to fight out along with the much improved ALCAZABA who was a very imposing winner in last run.

MARIINSKY- ALCAZABA-ISNT SHE SPECIAL.

8. GLYCYS BAY is the failed favourite who could not catch up with the runaway winner. SUPREME has come down a lot but has a new owner and an average rider. PRINCE OF DARKNESS was given an ordinary ride by a work jockey, has scope here. ROYAL ADMIRAL has no works and no run for some time, gets a top rider.

PRINCE OF DARKNESS-GLYCYS BAY- ROYAL ADMIRAL.

9. THE SITUATION may run a forward race, has won at this level before. NATURAL VIEW is the youngster who is winner once and has been given an easy run. RAAGA is a non winner 5 year old who has a good rider repeating, may upset. TRANSFORMER impressed in gates. DANCE WITH ME has been given quick runs, may place.

NATURAL VIEW-RAAGA-TRANSFORMER.

SILVER ARROW FOR MYSTICAL TROPHY

Thursday, November 28, 2013


MUMBAI RACES.

1. Only TARA and ARZAAN have won before, both not in the last two years, the later winning exactly 2 years ago at 59 Kgs over 2000 m.ICE BEAUTY has placed twice over a mile. There is a lack of indicators and since the younger horses are backwards ARZAAN may win on better riding at low weights from her younger sister HEAVEN’S KEY who has been worked.

ARZAAN-HEAVEN’S KEY

2. Though he has not been pitted against classic types SILVER ARROW is an exciting prospect who is in pink condition and should step up to beat this lot, last win was awesome. INVICTUS who had come from way behind to finish on the tail of CLINTON in last run has been tracking smoothly for the last month or so, he should be fighting out along with the hype horse MANYATTA for placing.

SILVER ARROW-INVICTUS.

3. WENTWORTH has gone through the whole last season by only tracking, had earlier lost close home as a favorite, the well bred has been given a mock at Pune also, should run well. CURIOSITY had got the judges nod in a fighting finish, had bled during the win, fitness is doubtful since hardly been tracked. ARTA is a good breed who is pleasing in tracks and was beaten by a much superior winner last time. GIANT LUCK is tracking fluently and will like the trip. FABULOUS FLORENCE has not been publicly worked after the last improved effort.

WENTWORTH- ARTA- CURIOSITY.

4. RIO is the only youngster and the rookie rider will be keen to achieve a hat trick of wins on this nicely bred horse who is tracking like a winner. But to my mind he has to deal with the speedy DREAMLINER at low weight, remember he had beaten PANTHETRA well and before that run PANTHERA had accounted for RIO.VICTORIOUS MARCH is the other one who may threaten but lacks saddle support.

DREAMLINER-RIO.

5. Looks tough for AMISTAD at win over this distance at this weight, did not show any sharpness in last run. GHAZAL KING from a staying combination is looking for hat trick, has worked fine. NEGOTIATOR won in style and should look to repeat again.

NEGPOTIATOR-GHAZAL KING.

6. A race competed by hopeless lot of horses, can go the bookies way. AMAYA was a front runner over a staying trip, has an allowance rider now. VIVA ZAPATA has won at this level before, may be tried. MZURI has been given gates and tracks, is yet to get on board. MIDNIGHT LADY has sometimes been backed, has low weight and a reasonable jockey, can speed away.

MIDNIGHT LADY-AMAYA-MZURI.

7. EDWINA is a talented sprinter but has a most average rider at top weight and has been kept under wraps for long. CELCIUS should run a forward race, may place. SONG OF SPARROW has come down with runs, looks tempting at this handicap. WINDMILL LADY had finished strongly in last run, should fight out.

SONG OF SPARROW-WINDMILL LADY-EDWINA.

BRIGADIER FOR THE COMMITTEE TROPHY

Wednesday, November 27, 2013


MYSORE RACES.

1. Based on the run in Race 1 & the fact that 7 runners are from the same connections, THE BACK BENCHER was a forward runner who went on his own and now gets a much better rider, hence should be the one to beat. ALBATROSS is showing speed in works and will run a good forward race. RISING RANI has been on tracks for long but may need a run as she is not bred for speed. ULTIMATE PRINCESS is the doosra who may be surprising at better odds.

THE BACK BENCHER-RISING RANI-ALBATROSS.

2. CHANTILY JEWEL ran a close race and should be trying under the allowance rider, has won at these weights before. THE SENATOR has been given an easy run. GAMBIT has not been worked much since the flop run as a favourite. QUEEN’S CRUISE who led in well still looks for her maiden win. SNOW PEAKS is a winner of 2 races who is down in scales, has not been tried for long.

CHANTILY JEWEL-SNOW PEAKS-THE SENATOR.

3. BANDITO had beaten CARISMA in a fighting finish earlier, has been prepared. CARISMA has been well tracked after the last run when she bled, may improve. ACE PRINCESS has been given runs against superior types, tracks are fine. COFFEE TIME has low weights, looks speedy in works.

BANDITO-CARISMA-ACE PRINCESS.

4. LA PIPERI has been very regular in tracks, may place. AERIAL ACROBAT should be fighting out with the allowance jockey in this suspect field. HARINI who is working well should beat this lot, she is winner of 3 races and is due for a win. SHINNING FAME should run a forward race at low weights.

HARINI-AERIAL ACROBAT-SHINNING FAME.

5. SAND DUNE is in fine form and was beaten by a good youngster last time. AZURE FIRE is a good type who is in fine nick. ABSOLUTE PLEASURE had won in style and has raced with superior lot, should win now. BRAVE ASSAULT at low weights should run a forward race.

ABSOLUTE PLEASURE-AZURE FIRE-SAND DUNE.

6. INFATUATION can place again, has come back to form. BRIGADIER is catching the eye with speedy tracks. FLIRTING KING is showing out in mornings and will build on last effort. BORN ELECTRIC is tracking quite well.

BRIGADIER-INFATUATION-FLIRTING KING.

7. CRRISP is likely to run well again in current good form. DEMANDING FORMAT who won under drugs looks in fit condition and has a very good handicap based on earlier runs, can win on genuine try. ASHKAN is working well. DANCE OF A GENERAL has a positive rider switch, may run on board as tracks are speedy.

DEMANDING FORMAT-CRRISP-ASHKAN.

8. HISTORICA was too late in finishing on last time, has further penalty to handle . UNCHALLENGED is tracking for long, has a chance to do well. QUEEN’S COLOUR should build up on last run. BRIGADE’S PARADISE is pleasing in morning works. ARC ANGEL has low weight over favourite trip.WORLD IS TOO MUCH has the right jockey to exploit low weights.

WORLD IS TOO MUCH-HISTORICA-QUEEN’S COLOUR.

DELHI RACES.

1. There is nothing much to write about the bloodlines since all these runners are from moderate sires standing around the capital and most of their produce will primarily rce at this centre. None of the freshman sires is exciting and most of the mares have been ordinary in racing. MASTER NOVAK has shown out in tracks and will run a good race.CLIQUOT may be the best bred, showed out well in mocks and has an aged rider. SHES THE BEST has been nicely prepared but mock race can not be taken very seriously. The other one from the same stable has some potential.

MASTER NOVAK-SHES THE BEST-CLIQUOT

2. NIZBATI QUEEN who ran well last time has a negative jockey. LOVE LOVE is speedy and has a rookie for a try. MASTER STAR won well and maintains form. TRACK BLAZER is always a genuine runner, has a chance to be in the firing line. GREEN SEALS may place as he has come down a lot in last two years.

MASTER STAR-LOVE LOVE-GREEN SEALS.

3. YALAMLAM is stepping down in distance and has weights against. PERFECT AFFECT has tough task to repeat. NEIVASHA is a speedy one who should look to repeat. CHEPETZUHA is due for a win soon. JAZBA appeals as an upsetter.

NEIVASHA- CHEPETZUHA-YALAMLAM.

4. COMPREHENSIVE has the fly in rider, the horse has done well this season and has a hefty penalty. DESERT EAGLE has liked the Delhi course and appears a different animal who was moody under Sunderji’s barns, should be fancied for hat trick. TEZ RAFTAR showed improvement in last run. AL SAHAIL is the youngster on promotion at low weights.

AL SAHAIL-DESERT EAGLE-COMPREHENSIVE.

5. COURAGE UNDER FIRE has the rider repeating, horse is due for a win, has come down a lot.The trip will suit REVENGEFUL KNIGHT, the horse is down in scales. BAY OF THUNDER is looking fit, may upset. ROYAL ROSE was a suggestive runner last time. CHARMING WOODS is a horse with problems, may place on handicap.

COURAGE UNDER FIRE-REVENGEFUL KNIGHT-ROYAL ROSE.
6. DAZZLING WAVE has been given runs, has b
een tracking well and should be running for money now. DANCING BABE may surprise, last run was questionable. MAMBO LIGHT is best avoided, has been beaten fair in last two runs. ANOTHER EAGLE is down in scales and has a rookie.

ANOTHER EAGLE-DAZZLING WAVE-MAMBO LIGHT.

CIRCLE OF LIFE FOR SIR MEHTA MILLION

Saturday, November 23, 2013


MUMBAI RACES

1. SOMBRERO had given the owner cum trainer a nice gamble in Pune kind courtesy help from the loosing rider, the horse is bred for speed and has been very regular in tracks ever since. STOLEN RELIC has been worked , has earlier run a good 2nd once. ESTABLISH PREDATOR a nonsensical name has good handicap, has been worked fine after half share bought by the trainer, last run was suggestive. MATRIOSHKA has not done well in last few runs, is owned by a long time ago’s scheming owner, may upset.

MATRIOSHKA-SOMBRERO-STOLEN RELIC.

2. WORD OF HONOUR is a hardy stayer and is working like a youngster. KAIZER has no tracks, has won over this distance with this rider before. VENUS MARINA is bred to stay and last run was a reasonable one under a weak rider. FIRST AND ONLY ONE was backed down to win in first run and as predicted flopped, the trainer appears to be wrong in sending her over such a trip.

VENUS MARINA-WORD OF HONOUR

3. .ANALEAH is by a good sire and from a black type mare, had impressed as a good type in maiden win, was beaten by a superior WAY OUT, looks in fine nick. HIGHRAZ had won a mile in first run, has impressive bloodlines and is working fluently, will fight out at low weights. MONTREAL is done in by weights, retains form.

ANALEAH-HIGHRAZ.

4. KEUKENHOF won in style finishing on and is bred to stay, has been working impressively. BOMBARDIER did not stay the trip in Derby, earlier effort was a good one. CELTIC KING ran a good 3rd in Derby, has been given a mock race. DYNAMO is the hype horse who flopped after leading as a favourite both times, has weights and distance in favour.

DYNAMO- CELTIC KING.

5. A handicapper’s puzzle this one as horses are closely matched. DANCING PHOENIX likes to hit the front and keep going, 1000 yards he is difficult to catch, got nabbed by ISHPINGO last time over this trip. DEJA VU, HAWAIIN PRINCESS and EMERGING STAR raced together last time and the first three named come out as prime contenders. MONZA was hanging in and finishing on along the rails, should like the Mumbai straight and is due for a win for long.

MONZA-DEJA VU-DANCING PHOENIX.

6. CIRCLE OF LIFE who finished on from way behind in stable mate JEREMIAH’s Derby win should be the prime fancy here and is working extremely well. MAJESTIC REWARD was a keen runner till ingto the straight in the Derby who should again run a good race over the shorter trip now. Like STARRY EYS ,the PBM MILLION winner MURIOI has been worked for form but appears to lack the sparkle, the horse may like the fast and firm surface here to challenge.

CIRCLE OF LIFE-MURIOI.

7. PLAY FAIR who ran 3rd in a weak collection of juveniles in what was apparently a promotional race for the sire of the eventual laboured winner has been well tracked but may find it tough to shine . RAVELLO impressed with a forward effort last time and looks improved. FIESTY LASS is the got abroad who ran well in gate practice and appears forward. MAISHA from the top stables should run well, nothing fast on tracks .

RAVELLO-FIESTY LASS.

8. BLUE BAY has been given a track by work miser trainer and that alon with the rider is quite an indication. ZOE was a flying 2nd undera work rider and should go all the way now in this weak field. ONE TIME MAGIC has the weak rider repeating who placed at good odds last time. SONG OF AFRICA is a badly flopped favourite from the last run.

ZOE-BLUE BAY-SONG OF AFRICA.

LIGHT OF SUCCESS FOR HOYSALA TROPHY


BANGALORE RACES.

1. A suspect lot for the opener, TIC TAC TOE failed as a favorite last time and inspite of the rider looks tough to win if favored again. JEYEM is a winner of 2 races who has an allowance rider and has been tracked, the trainer is averageand his wards don’t run as per handicap. ORIENTAL STAR is well placed to show out. The one who is working well and may strike with the average rider FAITH AND TOIL is a speedy one in with a handicap chance.

FAITH AND TOIL-JEYEM-TIC TAC TOE.

2. CLEVER TRICK has raced with better types, has a handicap chance. RESURGENT has been given runs, should run well. BETTER THAN EVER ran like a dud, looks out of chance here. ICE STONE had run with age group mostly in Bangalore, has a chance to place with the average rider.

CLEVER TRICK-RESURGENT-ICE STONE.

3. FIRE STORM was a forward runner who may again figure on board. JAANVI runs after a long time, has won 3 times in career. JEYEM’S PRIDE has some early speed and may be interested here. SANTA ANA is the youngster who ran well last time to be able to beat this lot now.

SANTA ANA-FIRE STORM-JAANVI.

4. CONROD ran a good 2nd on opening day, was beaten close home, will fight again. HIDDEN HERO ran much above expectations in tough company and is bound to show out .OUR COMMANDER has run average and not tracked hence may not even place. SCORCHING VULCAN had lost to too good EVERAZ who won again, the gelding ahs been tracked for the day.

SCORCHING VULCAN-HIDDEN HERO-CONROD.

5. CASTLE STUART had just held on after leading all the way, weight is a stopper over the mile. The weakly bred BRONZINO has found the going tough in all runs, extended distance may suit. What went wrong with SUR LA TETE, the trainer may know, this horse had just about beaten TURF STRIKER in maiden attempt, breeding and tracks are very suggestive for a win now. WHIMSICAL has always flattered to deceive, tracks are fast. Last run of LUCKY THIRTEEN was a sham to me, should be the one to watch out for now.

SUR LA TETE-LUCKY THIRTEEN-BRONZINO.

6. WIND WONDER had two smashing wins in summers and has been tracking well all through last season, he may be favoured to win again but I think his penalty is a heavy one and he is up against a younger horse and winner of 3 races in LIGHT OF SUCESS who receives weight and looks well prepared on inner track. VOLCANO is a speedy one who is blazing the track in morning work outs. CRISTOFFE who is the other youngster and has shown out well has been entrusted to a work jockey.

LIGHT OF SUCCESS-WIND WONDER-VOLCANO.

7. See whom SOVEREIGN RULE had beaten in last run and there is no need to see rest of the card, also he has been tuned up for the day. The ones to challenge could be ALL PROOF and MARK, both are working fine. TRIUMPHANT who won at this weight in last run got disqualified, the trainer is known for being involved in doping cases, the horse has credentials to run well. The outsider from a friendly stable who may be given a choked run is ROYAL REIN, has the worst rider but look at the last grand run while conceding weight.

SOVEREIGN RULE-ALL PROOF-TRIUMPHANT.

8. SCENIC BLAST has lots of early speed and should run well with the keen rider. PACK UR BAGS has worked impressively and gets a chance to be favored with the top rider, handicap is just about so. ABBAS DREAMS was finishing wide , may be tried again. FORTHCOMING has a chance to run for the post if he gets away cleanly, has been prepared.

FORTHCOMING-SCENIC BLAST-PACK UR BAGS

BANGALORE RACES.

1. AASHIKARA is a nicely bred horse who has been trained well and should be fancied now. DOFANTASY is tracking nicely. UNGOOGLEABLE ran a fine 3rd to S SKY IN SUMMERS, has shown speed in tracks. GLAMOUR BOY ran a fine 2nd in last run and goes over ideal trip with a try rider.

AASHIKARA-UNGOOGLEABLE-GLAMOUR BOY.

2. A good bunch of youngsters are racing here and the only one who has been given a run BOLD MAJESTY will find it difficult to win, he failed miserably last time, a bit green in the straight and should improve now. The best bred is STAR OF DESTINY , half brother to BORSALINO is showing out in mornings and will run well. The very average bred OUR LITTLE DRAGON should run a forward race as he is notable in works. The one from the precocious sire BLITZSCNELLE should blitz home, has impressed a lot in gates. SAIRANI is showing lots of promise in mornings and is well bred for sprints.

SAIRANI- -BOLD MAJESTY- BLITZSCHNELLE.

3. WELL KNOWN who had last won at top weight in higher class should provide this trainer a return to winning form, all his horses are well below performance index. INDEPENDENCE DAY ran below par last time, has the weak rider repeating. THUNDER is also on demotion with a good rider now. MYSTIC LAVENDER has a handicap chance. GAGAN STAR has the benefit of easy run and may place .

WELL KNOWN-INDEPENDENCE DAY-GAGAN STAR.


4. ARTORIOUS had finished well ahead of AGOSTINI in winter juvenile million and now runs at much better weights but with a second string rider who rides well when not under pressure to perform. The former is showing out in tracks but looks in tough waters at top weight and the later has been given a solitary easy track. GUTS N GLORY is the other one who is attractive in tracks but has AZETIC STAR who runs at a bit better terms here. The later had won warding off and gets a second rung rider, may show improvement. The bottom weighted got abroad REGAL BOAST had finished on well in last win and gets the experienced but out of form rider, can repeat.

REGAL BOAST-ARTORIOUS-AGOSTINI.

5. The two 4 year olds have come up in class by virtue of wins at Mysore and hence I discount their chances of winning straight a way here. The top weighted VALAHAK has won in the highest class and has been tracked fine and impressed in gates. The other one who is down in scales and class is ONE TIME MAGIC who has suddenly been tracked and gets a top rider for a high % striking trainer. MAGNITUDE STAR has been penalised a bit for last forward effort and gets a chance here. VIOLENT STORM who has always won at low weights has been knocking for a win and may get through in this bunch.

VIOLENT STORM-VALAHAK-ONE TIME MAGIC.

6. MOUNTAIN RANGE is badly outhandicapped and may find it tough to place. SUN KINGDOM is the threat to all and he can run a good race if the rider can handle him. The 4 year old who has worked well is RATHAM and he has to deal with the younger TURF STRIKER who has not raced upto expectation after a late finishing effort ALAINDAIR in Bangalore Derby in summers.

TURF STRIKER-RATHAM-SUN KINGDOM.

7. NOCTURNAL HUNTER has the experienced rider but no tracks and a tough handicap are negatives. ARTIC BREEZE has won twice at good odds with his rider, has been tracked , keep in mind the in and out running’s of the horses from this sly trainer. PRESIDENT’S RULE has a tough task after loosing out as a favourite in a weaker field at Mysore. ISLE OF FIRE is a speedy one who runs a forward race and may surprise at this level, has no works? ASTONISHING may improve on the last effort. SUPER SALONI has won well and she gets a good rider at bottom weight for repeat.

SUPER SALONI-ISLE OF FIRE-NOCTURNAL HUNTER.

8. MANTRA is a speedy one who has weights against, has worked fine. ABSOLUTE RED won easily and the race was declared null and void, all have to beat him at this handicap. AMAZONAS is from a very ordinary sire but has some potential, looks forward from works. CROWN EMPEROR is a top bred who should like the added distance here. PEARL REWARD has been nicely tracked and the well bred has a useful rider to try to go all the way.

ABSOLUTE RED-PEARL REWARD-AMAZONAS.

MINT APPROACH FOR SIR R CHINOY TROPHY

Wednesday, November 20, 2013


MUMBAI RACES.

1. Looks like a close contest between BRAVE FIGHTER and VAILE ROUGE. The former has come down a lot courtesy runs given by Walker and has been secretly prepared by the trainer who doesn’t work his horses openly. The later has lost narrowly twice under this rider, has a new trainer now and has fared better over sprints. PRINCE ARIUS had last won a race under this very rider and should be trying along with low weighted ANCIENT ODDESSEY who has been worked now.

VAILE ROUGE-BRAVE FIGHTER.

2. ARCH DUCHESS has problems and lands with a weak trainer after a fairly ordinary effort as a favourite in last run. AROMATICA finally gets a chance to run, the well bred has been hardly tracked. The obvious choice hence is RECKLESS who failed to accelerate after a forward run in last attempt, the ordinary sire bred may win due to lack of genuine opposition.

RECKLESS-ARCH DUCHESS.

3. MAUNA KEA got a great write up from the reporters after her maiden win and took down lots of good wager in next run, has not been sighted on tracks as usual and runs with hype once again. DANCING SPLENDOUR who won well is maintaining good form and is likely to show improvement. The one who caught the eye in last run was SUMMER ECLIPSE , receives weight and should speed home here.

SUMMER ECLIPSE-MAUNA KEA.

4. MINT APPROACH is another hype horse who has not raced as per public expectation at Pune, has been working fit recently and will be favoured to win at low weights with the top rider to guide. However there is danger from AIGION who likes this track and was never ridden seriously in Pune. It is customary to hear the announcement of favorite bleeding after they under perform badly, any horse who has a hard race tends to bleed a bit inside and endoscopy confirms just that. AIGAION is showing out and goes over ideal trip. THE MINISTERIAN is winner of just one race and gets in here due to 4th in Pune Derby, has to do really well to win.

MINT APPROACH-AIGAION.

5. SILSILA is the youngster who was never hustled in Pune and her runs in Mumbai were better, should do well in this bunch. STRATEGY has run well sometimes but has getaway problems like OCEAN SAPPHIRE and WINSTON.

SILSILA-STRATEGY-WINSTON.

6. DANCING PRANCES has not been tested fully last season, he is a top sprinter in his age group and should be able to handle this lot inspite of conceding weight.INDIAN TOUCH does not appeal over this distance and has negative weights. BRINDABAN impressed a lot in last win and maintains form. MYKONOS is a fine sprinter who steps up in distance and class.

DANCING PRANCES-MYKONOS-BRINDABAN.

7. Tricky race between younger lot having suspect qualifications. QUICK FIRE is bred for speed and had won in style but step up in class to top weight may be challenging. COLOURFUL PRINCE has under performed for some reason, has good initial speed and can upset. TRISARA has not been worked openly but the trainer uses lots of gym facilities for his horses, should throw up a challenge. Of the older lot only ALECTO is showing signs of fitness, may run on board.

QUICK FIRE-TRISARA- COLOURFUL PRINCE.

MYSORE RACES.

1. CHANTILLY JEWEL has the benefit of a run but has a stiff handicap and top weight is against. PENALTY KICK is a problematic horse who goes over extended distance for his liking. TRUTHANDFAITH has been tracked very well all through last season and now gets a good chance to win, remember last win was also under this rider, was kept back till late finish in last run. STARS AND STRIPES who is down in scales does not appear to be fit, has no works. RICH ROUGE at low weights has tracked well and should lead the pack homewards.

TRUTHANDFAITH-RICH ROUGE-CHANTILLY JEWEL.

2. SECRET TREASURE is a flop show, tracks like a good horse and runs below expectations, top weight further reduces chances. ABBY’S BABY who ran well last week has a positive rider switch. BLUES AND ROYALS is tracking pleasingly. SWEET NOVEMBER is the youngster who has been sharpened up now, should improve. HEART OF REALITY has impressed in tracks and gets a keen rookie.

ABBY’S BABY-HEART OF REALITY-SECRET TREASURE.

3. ROYAL PRODIGY is on demotion and has a useful jockey, has won in higher class before. GUAPO led well in GUNPOWDER’S race last season, the later won again last week, has a good chance on handicap. PERSIAN remains an upsetter and unreliable. ROSIE’S DREAM has been given gates. SPINNING CHAKRAM has been tracking hard for long, may improve on last flop show.

GUAPO-ROYAL PRODIGY-PERSIAN.

4. ALABAMA has new stables and owners, should take time to settle down, has handicap against. POWER COLORS is showing out in trials, may place .PRECEPT is asppedy one who can upset. WYNN has been given gates, he is a winner of 5 races and a good handicapper. PARTY TONITE caught the eye with a late fast finish last week but remains an enigma for the owners by not winning for years.

WYNN-PARTY TONITE- POWER COLORS.

5. AYMAN definitely shapes as a main contender based on good runs. GALAXY QUEEN was backed down as if she had no worthwhile opposition but got shocked by an oldie, finds a new trainer and goes under the stick again, may win. FLASH TIME was a flashy 2nd who is in fine form and has an allowance rider. RICKETY ROCK has low weights and has been given gates.
GALAXY QUEEN-AYMAN-FLASH TIME.

6. Looks like a close contest between YAKEEN and DUMA, the two youngsters on the up. Interestingly both got beaten close home by the common horse SOLITAIRE ROYALE. YAKEEN may have faught out better but then when they raced together in maiden’s race DUMA won and now receives crucial weight. REBECCA who is showing speed in tracks may place. SPARK OF BEAUTY and MIYARSPRINCESS are also speedy ones.

DUMA-YAKEEN-REBECCA.

7. SOFAST is a good type youngster who races after long at top weight, has worked pleasingly and may beat the older lot. ALWAYS ON TOP has won at this level before and has been tracked well. Drug cases seldom perform at their handicap in next run hence nothing much can be said about ALL FOR CASH. CARISMA who bled last time goes with a work jockey, needs this run. EUPHORIA runs for new owners, has some chance of doing well.

SOFAST-ALWAYS ON TOP-EUPHORIA.

8. SKY HIGH has won at this level with this rookie before, may be tried. TUSKER was kept easy in all runs last season, watch now. AMAZER is showing out in morning works, has a useful rider for try. TIME FLIES impressed a lot in last finish, should be fancied to win here. MOM IN LAW has a chance to run well again.

TIME FLIES-SKY HIGH-MOM IN LAW.

9. WINNING DESIRE has a handicap chance. PERFECT SPEED has been kept easy in last run. REAL POTENTIAL looks improved. LITTLE ATHENA who led in may go all the way now. PREZZIE has a chance to redeem last failure.

OCTOPAUL-SAHASTRAJIT.

2. PERFECT AFFECT has come down in scales and has a useful rider who is finding winning a difficult task nowadays. CRUSOE has not been able to justify support on a number of occasions, has handicap in favour and is working well. HUGE PRICE is an ordinary horse who may place .

CRUSOE-PERFECT AFFECT.

3. MASTER STAR has been nicely trained and showed out in the mock race, rider assigned is for rates. RACING PRIDE got beat easily last time, can not be fancied to win now. VALENTINE ROSE has been scrubbed a lot in works, should run better in this field. TARANTINO is showing out in short tracks, has been plagued with fitness problems.

MASTER STAR-VALENTINE ROSE.

4. MASTER NADEL is a good type who has won over the mile before and should be favoured to win here. FIRST ONE is a failed favorite with the useful rider who can handle the trip well. KIANA has won over this trip a number of times and may place. SARVAMANGALA ran a good 2nd in last run and now goes at low weights with an experienced jockey, handicap is still a bit stiff when one compares based on race No 56.

MASTER NADEL-SARVAMANGALA-FIRST ONE.

5. LAMBADA is in awesome form and has the good breeding to be highly fancied in this plum race. LUCKY has not raced for long and that may effect her chances, the filly is shining inn tracks.

STARRY EYES FOR MORVI TROPHY

Sunday, November 17, 2013


MUMBAI OPENING DAY

1. JANIS JAY had run a fair 3rd to DANCING PHOENIX and then an impressive late 2nd to STARRY EYES, looks to be of a higher class with these credentials. She has been very regularly tracked in Pune all through, likely to open as a strong favorite and that is where the scrip gets suspicious what with a trainer with long record of failed favorites. Of the others BELMONT who is demote should fight out and QUEEN may try to utilise the low weights.

JANIS JAY-BELMONT.

2. The classic hopeful STARRY EYES has been prepared to a peach of a condition and should win as a good thing now, forget the poor runs at Bangalore.

STARRY EYES

3. The two 3 year olds attract and interestingly both ran together recently over 1400 m where REMEMBER ME who is by a very speedy mare finished on strongly in the final 200 m to beat the speedy ROSIE SUNSHINE by about 3 .5 lengths, should be considered to have an edge even over the sprint as he is actually a sprinting pedigreed one also.Of the older lot CATHARSIS may run a fighting race.

REMEMBER ME- ROSIE SUNSHINE.

4. The champion of Bangalore summers racing ALAINDAIR should be fancied to win here as he beat ACCLAIMED convincingly who later beat SIVER STREAK comfortably at Hyderabad. The moot point is that SIVER STREAK has improved a lot under the champion trainer’s handling and last win at Pune was achieved coming off the pace and today he gets precious weight in favour, should be a close one. MANYATTA from the older lot should be running a good race also.

SILVER STREAK-ALAINDAIR.

5. ISADORO has run both races in tougher group at Pune hence the true handicap is uncertain as he has not improved since the fine win alongside MINT APPROACH at this centre. Handicap favors MY FREEDOM who was given an easy run by a rookie in last run and now should run a forward race with the top rider. The competition may arise from SAMAY BALWAN who was always running full out in last season. ANCIENT WARRIOR may place as he is working fine.

MY FREEDOM-ISADORO-SAMAY BALWAN.

6. WAR HORSE looks to be a different horse here as he is looking an exciting prospect in tracks, may not have liked the grass at Pune. SHEER CLASS had impressed a lot in a tight rein win from a suspect lot and may be favoured on that account. BEFOREMEMORYFADES from a good sprinter producing sire was well in control and won well when backed last time and has remained in form.

WAR HORSE-SHEER CLASS.

7. A deplorable assembly to run first out where rules of framing races raises many doubts. Trainer Katrak with the most suspicious and dubious record of wrong doings has 7 runners and the breeder cum owner Nirmal singh has five runners. A racing finesse may well be on hands as most money is bound to be loaded on hot favourite SHIVALIK STORM who has high credentials of being half brother to top sprinting race horse SHIVALIK STAR and the gelding is looking too good in tracks. To get odds there is bound to another one from the groups mentioned who will also be wagered upon. INCADESCENT has a speedy sire and a top sprint producing mare and looks well prepared also. The horses outside the Katrak/ Nirmal bunch do not appeal to me in any way, hope some one spoils the party.From pure perspectrive of commenting on the race, the favourite at cramped odds should be SHIVALIK STORM who looks far superior.

SHIVALIK STORM-PRAELECTOR-INCADESCENT.

8. GHANGHORR is an ordinary type who doesn’t impress inspite of the rider. STAR GAZING has come down with runs and last effort on board should be considered. DONATA from a very ordinary trainer has been tracked nicely all through the season and should run well. BELLA FIGURA should be running well at low weights.

STAR GAZING-DONATA-BELLA FIGURA.

No tracks given to IRISH SONG who won by a distance in summers. CASH MY WAY has worked nicely. WINGS OF FORTUNE is a nice bred who has been given easy runs, working pleasingly and should be carefully considered at low weights with the good rider.

BANGALORE WINTERS OPENING DAY

1. Over the scurry CULLINAN should be fancied with john astride since he had run a promising 4th in his only outing in summers in a good field. He has been given a single track but that is the way the trainer works. Rest of the field appears immature and the challenge can emerge from ALALA ridden by an ordinary jockey but the horse has been fancied before. BOLT’S COLT definitely needs distance , has tracked regularly. The well bred FLASHY WAYS has not been able to come to hand. BIG COPPER PENNY may show improvement.

CULLINAN-ALALA-FLASHY WAYS.

2. The two horses who are comfortable over this trip are VOLANS who won twice in summers and GREY CONNECTION who like to lead up. The later is a miler but has an allowance rider for advantage and has been consistent all summers without scoring, hence has handicap chance. VEYRON is a 5 year old winner over this distance before who has run with better types. RESURGENT is the one down in scales and working well but trainer has been waiting and the horse is more of a sprinter. COCKTAIL CIRCUIT has not raced for a long time and jockey is ordinary. Oldie KILMINJARO has been given a number of gates and he may upset.

GREY CONNECTION-VOLANS-VEYRON.

3. CONROD is in peach of a condition from tracks and has impressed in gates with Chisty astride, has good bloodlines and should score. The two who would trouble him are the very well bred CROWN EMPEROR and the much improved VIGOROUS from a speedy mare . These two had run together in summers where the former performed as a better horse. DANUBE and FRANKNESS have been tracking fine and NAYAN STAR was a easy runner in gates.

CONROD-CROWN EMPEROR-VIGOROUS.

4. The two who stand out on preparation and chance are DIAMONITE and ALCAZABA, both are forward in tracks. The former has a disadvantage of weight and rider whereas the later appeals on age and low weights. The oldie who can surprise with a forward run is MAGNITUDE STAR who is down in rankings and has a good rider for a canny trainer. STELLAR AMBITION has a tough penalty whereas AMAZING REDD has a weak rider.

ALCAZABA-DIAMONITE-STELLAR AMBITION.

5. The got abroad NATURAL VIEW had a forward run recently and will be tried, top weight against some promising runners is a big negative. The focus will be on the half brother to SOUTHERN BAY who has been very regular in tracks but could not get a run last season, PRICELESS ACE had appeared as a nice type in the summer run and looks improved. The serious contenders should be a well bred MANNAT who could not win despite a fine effort last time and the improved & LUCKY THIRTEEN who was a flying finisher in a mile event. CASTLE STUART has shown lots of speed in mornings but should be considered over a bit shorter trip.

PRICELESS ACE-MANNAT-LUCKY THIRTEEN.

6. ROYAL SALUTE has a weak chance at top weight with the average rookie. RUMOUR HAS IT has good form and will be tried over the sprint. SWEET N SMART has been an in and out runner, may go close.

RUMOUR HAS IT-SUN GLOW-SWEET N SMART.

7. IMMENSE is a talented horse who has handicap in favour but has top weight as a worry when speedy youngsters are likely to tear away. SILKEN TOUCH is in winning form and will fight out.JERSEY SHORE is a good type who did not like the extra yards last time. ROCK WITH U is a tremendously talented one from the speedy dam who had won both her starts easily in racing career, the son has lots of the same and all have to chase him home, may last out due to low weights.

ROCK WITH U-IMMENSE-SILKEN TOUCH.

8. THE MUSE is speedy but has a weak rider and needs a run. UNION JACK has been given poor rides, has a negative rider. JERSEY PRIDE is working very well and has been given an easy run in last season. DANCE WITH ME who was backed heavily last time gets one of the weakest riders now. VOLT has low weights and the rider to ride out, last run in summers was catchy, where he has been prepared is not known.

VOLT-JERSEY PRIDE-DANCE WITH ME.

9. VIOLENT STORM who ran a good race against TIJUCA FORST was unnecessarily sent over a mile, horse is due for a win. The one to be watched is FIRELIGHT who has an ordinary rider but handicap is beckoning and has been worked well. WREKIN has adverse scales and MAGNOMICAL is in with a chance to place.

VIOLENT STORM-FIRELIGHT-MAGNOMICAL.

DAYS BEST--------ALCAZABA

DOUBLE-----------CONROD X VIOLENT STORM
