SHIVALIK STAR FOR SPRINTERS TRIAL STAKES

Friday, January 31, 2014


BANGALORE RACES

1. EXTRA SPARK who placed for first time should improve with the rider repeating. BYRONIC belongs to owners of questionable repute, but with the rider under scope the horse will only be tried, trainer has the distinction of making his living on tips only as his wards are nowhere. MYSTIC LAVENDER has been under the whip in all runs. MISTER GREY has often been in lead group and eased up, watch out with this rider.

BYRONIC-MISTER GREY-MYSTIC LAVENDERS.

2. VISTABELLA has penalty to beat and may not like the sprint. INSPIRATOR can place on a try, is winner of 4 races. AFFRIKAH was pulled last time, may show out with the experienced rider. I am not convinced by the last two runs of JEYEM’S PRIDE, a reputed rider keeping the horse wide all the way, looks good to me here.

JEYEM’S PRIDE-VISTABELLA-AFFRIKAH.

3. After two attempts when the horse was kept in check, it may be time to run ATTITUDE XTREME sincerely in this suspect field.If not for the rider, SILHOUTTE could actually be a serious contender now. FANCY NUMBER has been worked as well as given run by this rider looking to find his feet after the tag of being a regular, may do well. LIQUID ASSET has low weights and may be tried.

LIQUID ASSET-ATTITUDE XTREME-FANCY NUMBER.

4. ARZIKI has a lot to do over this trip at top weight. PETER PARKER is from a flop sire , has shown good tracks and goes with an over rated rider. WHIMSICAL is maintaining form and may improve on last win. VIKTOR has pleased in preparation , last run was educative only, should like the trip as dam was a stayer.

VIKTOR-PETER PARKER-WHIMSICAL.

5. Looks very close between SIX SPEED and SHIVALIK STAR and difficult to suggest any edge. SHIVALIK STAR has been very speedy in tracks and last run needs to be ignored, SPEED SIX has been very consistent over the last couple of years in big events. The younger JERSEY SHORE is the only one on the up who can trouble the duo, won very well in last run.

SHIVALIK STAR-SPEED SIX.

6. TRIUMPH was a very impressive winner in lower class but looks in superior company here, tracks are very forward and may show out. CINCH has to improve a lot to win here. CULLINAN is catching the eye with smart works and showed fitness in gates, will fight out. KAFKA has been given easy runs, looks good on handicap and comparison.

KAFKA-CULLINAN-TRIUMPH.

7. Looks tough for LADS GLADIATOR despite a notable run and a rider switch, trip is sharp. HILLSTONE is down in scales and may run well in this class. STAR STRUCK was given a feeble ride and managed to loose, should be winning with a stronger rider now, had last won in summers in awesome fashion by a street. LIVING LEGEND has been working fine, can sprint well.

STAR STRUCK-LADS GLADIATOR-LIVING LEGEND.

8. RIGHT ON TIME does not appeal , may place on rider effort. HATCHETT HARRY has always struggled in this class, may run well. VIVA DIVA showed some resolve in last run, should be fancied here. FIORITTA was pulled last time on instructions from the suspended pair of trainers, horse now moved to another trainer who was suspended last year for months for doping, what is the plan of the fashionable owners now , specially with a no nonsense rider employed, may be the horse will be allowed to run true after two pulled runs before the new master gets to scheme, what a dilemma for the punters.

FIORITTA- VIVA DIVA-HATCHETT HARRY.

CASINO QUEEN has been a sincere runner who has the rider repeating. MISS BURBERRY is speedy and last run was good. VOCALBULARY from a decent mare has been given a run .

MISS BURBERRY-HOT BLOOD-CASINO QUEEN.

MISS FERRARI-SUN LIGHTNING-GOED PAARD.

3. REAL STUNNER is in top form and looks for hat trick. DAZZLING WAVE has a tougher task as he has beaten weaker ones. MASTER TIGER was a front runner over a mile and sudden switch to a sprint may not yield the wanted result. GUCCI WATER warmed up on entering the straight and won well, looks to improve.

REAL STUNNER-MASTER TIGER –DAZZLING WAVE.

4. BLACK N PINK won against tough company and may do well again. Ignore last run of SSWASTIKA has a handicap chance. MY SOUL won authoritatively and should repeat over ideal trip. CHARMING WOODS has better scales now but has a lot to do.

MY SOUL-BLACK N PINK-SSWASTIKA.

5. SHE’S THE BEST is tracking nicely and should be a top contender here. PUNJAB MAIL is an outsider who has some credentials. GLORY AWAITS is nicely bred and needed a run, has furnished on well. RIVIERA has the best rider and is from a promising freshman sire. JUST GOLD is impressive in tracks.

RIVIERA-SHE’S THE BEST-GLORY AWAITS.

6. I f ridden well EPISODE may palce again. CAUGHT THE EYE has been given runs, may be tried. MASTER FORMULA ran into problems as a favorite , can rebound now.GREEN RIBBON is too good on comparison, doping cases are always in with a chance. ASHWA APARNA may run well. INIDAN BRIDE is due for a win, has won at this level last time.

INDIAN BRIDE-ASHWA APARNA -MASTER FORMULA.

7. STOREM AWAY is on demotion with a good rider, may be preferred on handicap. MISS EDVINA showed improvement in last run. CHEPETZUHA has been given runs like track work by one of the most backwards trainer, can strike any day.RAWSOM under the most aged rider in the country by many years has a realistic chance to win.

YOU’RE A LEGEND is waiting for a punt, has handicap in favour.

YOU’RE A LEGEND-HARINI-ARC ANGEL.

2. FLYING HORSE flopped as a favourite, has the breeding to rebound in this group of moderate breds. KALLISTRATE has been nicely tracked and looks like a try one as the rider is suggestive indicator. BEAUTIFUL EFFECT may be kept easy and VROOM VROOM who was given an easy run should be trying. SOCIETY DREAM looks a lot improved and is the one to beat here. A few offspring of CHARMO, the freshman sire are running, he appears to be as backwards as HURRICANE CENTER who is a flop horse from the same side.

SOCIETY MUSIC-FLYING HORSE-KALLISTATE.

3. HAUTE ECOLE has credentials to do well but has been kept on a leash in runs. PRINCESS OF SYRIA is best on handicap but the horse has been out of training for so long, one can never be sure with this crooked thinking trainer. Interestingly another similar so called professional has the nicely working TERI ADAH also in the fray, so watch out. DIVINE FRIENDSHIP has been well prepared and the modest rider can do fine here.

TERI ADAH-DIVINE FRIENDSHIP-HAUTE ECOLE.

4. BRAVE ASSAULT ran well enough last time in a close race to stand a chance here. ASTOUNDING GALLOP looks to be ready to earn after having worked up feeding bill for years. HEAVENLY DIVAS has tracked well and run kie a dud, not sure of form. NERON is another one who has not performed upto his Bangalore level since migrating here. TOO COLD TO HOLD has a useful rider at low weights.

ASTOUNDING GALLOP-TOO COLD TO HOLD-BRAVE ASSAULT.

5. HERCULEAN was a good tip last time, just failed at the post, not sure of intentions of the ordinary trainer now. SECRET MISSILE won well and has a fair rider to try again. PARIS looks tough for a repeat, has good breeding to progress though, good news is that the aging trainer who was always scheming in getting good odds has been caught for misdeeds and suspended once again for presence of dope in his ward TRIUMPHANT. MOTHER EWA has the rider to improve upon last run when he had a weak chance but was made favourite unnecessarily. SPINNING CHAKRAM is a threat to all from the Way she is tracking.

SPINNING CHAKRAM-MOTHER EWA- PARIS.

6. THRILLSEEKER is tracking well. ROSIE’S DREAM has been consistent and can place. VIRTUOSO has the looks of a winner after a good 2nd last time. INFINITE THOUGHTS has a tough task despite the rider, had won in weak company earlier.

SUNSPIRIT is bound to improve after the last run, has not won for long. ICE SPLENDOUR has a tough handicap. EUPHORIA is bound to be running for money, retirement is near.

PRECEPT will be running forward again. LITTLE ATHENA is raking in good stakes with each run, the trainer is known for his favouring place bets.

PRAZSKY-SUMMER SENSATION-VIGOROUS.

2. FAIRWOOD PARK had shaped like a winner when beaten close home, is decently bred from a black type mare. SUPREME DOMINATOR was finishing well and looked good in last race. CONNEMARA has equal credentials but needs to improve a lot. SOUTHERN FANTASY is a costly one who is fantastically bred, needs to come to hand.

MAGNITUDE STAR- ICE CUTTER- SUPREME .

6. RATHAM ran well again and has been a genuine runner always in with a chance. SPANIARD needs a run, has worked well.

RATHAM-AUMENTO-ICE STORM.

7. AGOSTINI has good credentials and has been kept in pink condition, can win if he stays well.

TRUCULENT STAR showed a welcome return to form and may run well. MASTER BULLET is the best from the locals over this trip. HAWAIIAN PRINCESS disappointed in last run, has good early speed.

MUMBAI RACES

1. SUO MOTO has a habit of finishing late and is still a maiden, doesn’t appeal at top weight. MATEUS ROSE should run a forward race, can place here. SEVEN SEAS has a handicap chance as he has won at top weight in this class before and goes after easy gates. STRIKING SHADOW has come to hand, was a fast finisher from the back in last win, has scope with a better rider now. ST BARTS has not raced due to injury, is showing fast works and may go away at lowest weights with a useful jockey.

ST BARTS-STRIKING SHADOW-SUO MOTO.

2. STAR OF GIBRALTOR is a winner of 8 races who impressed a lot in last run. WINSTON has not won in this class, the rider has to do really well to strike. COMMANDER finished on nicely at the tail of JEREMIAH in last run, has a chance now. ZORAVAR is on the up and goes with the top rider at low weights.

COMMANDER-STAR OF GIBRALTOR-ZORAVAR.

3. AL SHAMSHEER has been tracked often after the last run and has come up in fitness. DISCOURSE was given a run, will run an improved race. ILLIDAN is a nicely bred horse who is forward in tracks. ZURICH is looking good in works, may run well.LADY BIRD ran below expectations in last run, may improve. TATIANA has been pleasing in works and has a precocious sire.

AL SHAMSHEER-LADYBIRD-ZURICH

4. Racing has its good share of scamsters and hood winkers. Since SHISHYA has been a looser when favoured by public she is likely to be offered a better price now, so watch her now. ARZAAN is conceding weight now, may place. BLUE SWALLOW looks for a very difficult hat trick. ZAFFIRAH is the one who can be in the frame if ridden well.

SHISHYA-ZAFFIRAH-ARZAAN.

5. The four speedy horses placed at lower end of scales should fight out. ONE KEPT SECRET won in style but has a weaker rider now. AINRA is a winner of 3 sprints over a 1000 yards but can get the extra and has the best rider. DEEP DIVER is a good sprinter who has run with superiors and done well, has run in tougher group last time. YOU’RE THE BOSS has good early speed and weights are in favour.

DEEP DIVER- AINRA-YOU’RE THE BOSS.

6. GLORIOUS REWARD is a decent type who is on the up. VICTORIA FALLS has not shown the same speed as in maiden win, jockey is also average. PROVIDENCE is a well bred who languishes with a very weak trainer. ADVACE TO CONTACT has a handicap chance . CARUSO has low weights and is shinning in works, lacks a race run.

PROVIDENCE-ADVANCE TO CONTACT-CARUSO.

7. SONG SAA was shaping well when got beaten, has a chance even at top weight. FIRST AND ONLY ONE has come to hand with last run and now goes with a forceful rider. PORTO BANUS has been nicely prepared may run well. THE OTHER SONG is an in and out runner, may surprise.

FIRST AND ONLY ONE-SONG SAA-THE OTHER SONG.

8. Difficult to separate SHIVALIK STORM and MAISHA based on last run, maisha has a paper thin edge. MISS MIRACLE looks improved and ZEDA had beaten a weak field. If GHALIB had hit brakes after a forward run, may be a chance to dow well as he ran a good mock.

MAISHA-SHIVALIK STORM-GHALIB.

9. The field is large but on performance CIRCLE OF LIFE with the well renowned fly in jockey will be hotly favoured to win from STARRY EYES who has been in pink condition and has a positive jockey switch. A Sandesh has been very impressive with his low haunch rides and has snapped victory from jaws of defeat on several occasions , it will be a big test for the lad against the guiles of the top artist. ISNT SHE SPECIAL has scope and MINT APPROACH showed grit in a fighting run last time.

CIRCLE OF LIFE-STARRY EYES-ISNT SHE SPECIAL.

10. SAN RAFAEL is the oldie who was given a poor ride. STRATEGY caught the eye in a good finish. Dark knight is an unreliable type, needs a run here.BRAVE FIGHTER showed out in a close finish. ICE GATE was a late finisher, may be tried.

1. A GAME TO REMEBER had run a suggestive race last time, has a reasonably capable rider. BROWNIE had led in well, last track was fast. JEYEM’S PRIDE was given a held run, may strike now. VISTABELLA ran in patches , has a chance here.

JEYEM’S PRIDE-VISTABELLA-A GAME TO REMEBER.

2. VIVA DIVA has a rider who is a much improved professional, the horse is due to do well. TAYLOR MADE ran well enough last time to merit attention with the leading jockey. SARATOGA SPRING was kept easy in last run, distance and bad back are against. ANGEL QUEEN ran a forward race And has a keen rookie. SPARK OF HARMONEY is tracking well.

VIVA DIVA-ANGEL QUEEN-TAYLOR MADE.

3. COURT DANCER has been nicely prepared, may go all the way. LIQUID ASSET has a chance over this trip.INDEPENDANCE DAY has not been able to justify preparation or the handicap. MAGNETIZE ran a suggestive race last time.

COURT DANCER-LIQUID ASSET-MAGNETIZE.

4. CLICK finished on from a hopeless position, has an allowance rider now. NATIVE INDIAN gets a rider who surfaces from where, I can not say, has a chance. HATCHETT HARRY is working well. THE STUATION may run well.

CLICK-HATCHETT HARRY-NATIVE INDIAN.

5. Punter’s dilemma since the three top contenders are from a common group. PORT BLAIR has run encouraging races at Mumbai and shift here is not understood, would need a run to assess depth here. CRISTOFFE could not justify his handicap and lost tamely to the rejuvenated VALERIAN who just strode away at better odds, reversal may be expected if odds are to the liking. The horse who showed out in last run, ALCAZAR has a weaker rider than before.The very speedy ICELANDER may show out initially but is not tracked and may have been on normal diet like most horses from the owner.

VALERIAN-CRISTOFFE-ALCAZAR

6. The race should be contest between the two horses who won in similar style of running away from the opponents in complete disdain; COUNTRY’S PRIDE & JERSEY BRIDE. The latter’s win was more of a surprise as she had not been subjected to any fast track. The horse who is going to show true strength after an easy run FOURTH DIMENSION is catching the eye with smart works.VIVID IMPRESSION is fast in tracks and goes at low weights.

JERSEY BRIDE-COUNTRY’S PRIDE-FOURTH DIMENSION.

7. The first win of AYRTON had left a good impression of a classy type, the horse has been plagued with problems and trainer has not given hard works, can beat the lot if fit.ROYAL SALUTE has run with better types and last run be ignored, looks well prepared but the choice of jockey is confusing. AUSTIN’S authoritative win recommends he be followed, has to move up a lot. PLACERVILLE’S GLORY has worked well, runs after recovery from leg injury.

AUSTIN-AYRTON-ROYAL SALUTE.

8. CLEVER TRICK showed no effect of bleeding to run away, has handicap against now. COCKTAIL CIRCUIT and MEGHALAYA are evenly matched, bith look vulnerable. LIVING LEGEND showed out well in last finish. RESURGENT is down a lot and due for a win.

RESURGENT-CLEVER TRICK-COCKTAIL CIRCUIT.

9. MIDTOWN DELIGHT has a chance to place again. MELLON’S DELIGHT has not been tried for long, has a good handicap to go all the way even with this weak rider. INSPIRATOR is bound to finish on well here, has won at this level in last win 10 months ago.SPANISH FLY was backed down heavily but was had easily, may improve.

MUMBAI RACES

1. JENS GLORY who fades out after forward runs has won at this level before and has an allowance rider. EYE OF THE STORM is another demote who has been given a full track. DOUBLE OR QUITS ran fair and has been worked, gets a moderately experienced rider. HOT AS ICE ran a forward race and goes at pin weight.

DOUBLE OR QUITS-JENS GLORY-EYE OF THE STORM.

2. GOLDEN MILLENIUM is from a precocious sire and looks in fine shape. JOLEENE is a speedy got abroad, the laid back trainer may have a winner here. KAZURI looks in comfort zone after two forward runs but is a suspect to me, the off spring of the sire rarely perform early. SPEAR OF TRIUM is from a speedy mare and working well and NATIONAL GOLD is from a promising sire.

JOLEENE -KAZUKI-GOLDEN MILLENIUM.

3. It is difficult to visualise a serious challenge for KNIGHT OF KE as he was shaping like a winner when got taken on the post. In this field only POLYNESIA has the credentials being a hat tricker last season but again the question is the poor skills of the rider make it all the more difficult for the horse to go the mile. CACTUS CASH had a poor run and is not even tracked.

KNIGHT OF KE-POLYNESIA.

4. The two sons of GLORY OF DANCER should attract interest here. GRAN TURISMO is better bred, and was an impressive 3rd inspite of slow getaway and receives weight. MUFASA was a lucky winner at Pune who just held on and may have the best rider but handicap troubles. The lowly weighted DIXIE DELIGHT has been thereabouts and finished well in last run. DANSE DEBONAIR is winner twice over a trip and has a positive rider change.

GRAN TURISMO-MUFASA-DIXIE DELIGHT.

5. Trainer owned STAR ZONE is a winner of 3 races and has been systematically braught down in class , goes with a rider who delivers often for this trainer. UNIVERSAL JOY is a failed favourite who chased the winner but could not step up,gets a rookie now. PRINCE ARIUS is a winner of two races who is showing speed in works. DHISKIYON is the one who has often shown speed till the bend, now is at low weights with a try jockey.

STAR ZONE-UNIVERSAL JOY-DHISHKIYON.

6. MYLA ROSE has come to hand with a fine effort last time. SILVER STREAK concedes crucial weight, is in fine fettle. INDIAN TOUCH has been a good one who has always done well over this trip. Handicap favors REMEMBER ME who has been given a couple of gates, had run a good 2nd to KEUKENHOF in Pune, belongs to a bad trainer who is unreliable with public backed horses.

REMEMBER ME-INDIAN TOUCH-SILVER STREAK.

7. The moderately bred HIGHLANDER had won comfortably over a trip in Pune and is tracking fine. Another one who won at good odds ZLATO looks in fine nick and may repeat. SAVAGE GARDEN who was prepared well was given a curiously laid back run last time, he is the up setter of the day.The one who has not done justice to the good early runs is CYCLOPS who has low weights but belongs to a very average trainer who takes time with his wards, lost narrowly to GEROME last year and no show thereafter. SUMMER ECLIPSE was shaping well but couldn’t finish in last run, the half brother to celebrated PLENIPOTENT is a dilemma for the owner.

ZLATO- CYCLOPS-HIGHLANDER.

8. A work jockey will get to show off his confidence on TINOGONA who should be favored to win based on an attractive effort last time, the owner is a betting type and must have been impressed a lot in last run. Shroff’s dilemma is that he has failed to get the other one from these owners to move, ARCHIMEDES has been the biggest failure of his stable, the bred for speed APACHE has hardly been exposed to tracks. ARTISTE who was favorite under the over rated foreign rider could not accelerate when urged last time, may show out. LIGHT OF ARABIA has been over tracked, the sire has a poor record.

TINOGONA-ARTISTE-LIGHT OF ARABIA.

9 WINGS OF GLORY is a speedy one but is done in by the top weight and is a bleeder hence unreliable. QUE SERA SERA doesn’t compare well with lower weighted ones, has not run as per earlier promises. EDITH PIAF has been given runs in Pune, looks in fine fettle to sprint well if backed. SHERLOCK HOLMES has current handicap in good favor, has a chance. ZOOM ZOOM won authoritatively but doubt is about getting the extra 200 yards. NATIONAL PRIDE is a speedy one with a try rider at low weights.

EDITH PIAF-SHERLOCK HOLMES-QUE SERA SERA.

9. ARABIAN QUEEN was late to finish on in last run, top weight is against. PEZZONOVANTE has a handicap chance to win if ridden well in front. BALINGA was a keen racer who showed lots of grit to fight on despite being wide most of the way till bend. STAR FIRE LADY is in fine form and has an allowance rider. SULTAN OF SWING may be tried, looks fit. POLAR ZONE has a useful rider at low weights, had finished on nicely last time.

SMALL CRUISE showed improvement in last run. SAMRAAT has been played around with, has been working well and may do well with the allowance rider. RICH ROUGE has a good chance at low weights.

SAMRAAT-TIME MATTERS-RICH ROUGE.

2. GELIGENITE is a better bred in this lot and has been extensively tracked. STYLISH CHARMER is from a very ordinary sire and this half brother to SECRET TREASURE will take time to do well. FELICISSIMUS is looking fit in tracks. VROOM VROOM has experience of runs and last run was good.

GELGINITE-VROOM VROOM-STYLISH CHARMER.

3. RUSTY ran well and is due for a win but why choose a work jockey? QUEEN’S CRUISE is in earning form. SET TO STORM has been backwards in runs, tracks are good and may show improvement. SNOW PEAKS impressed in gates and is looking forward in tracks.

SNOW PEAKS-RUSTY-QUEEN’S CRUISE.

4. HERCULEAN is down to this class with reducing runs, stands a good chance if tried. THE WORLD IS MINE is a winner of 6 races and has slid down a bit in scales. CEASARINA looks in tough company now. SAMAJDAAR has form and a try rider. ABBY’S BABY ran well last time.

HERCULEAN-ABBY’S BABY-THE WORLD IS MINE.

Speedy BENTEN has been in wilderness for long, is going to win soon as last run was suggestive. OSCAR SPARKLER was kept handy as the rates did not suit last time. CASH IS KING is bound to be running hell bent for leather before retirement.

OSCAR SPARKLER-CASH IS KING-AMAZER.

6. RIO GRANDE can place in this class. YAKEEN has stiff penalty for last win. AZURE FIRE was held back as connections are dubious types, last run is a negative indicator. ABSOLUTE PLEASURE is on the up, can win. ALIZADEH impressed a lot in gates. ALABAMA has been kept in form, was an easy winner in last run.MIYARS PRINCESS should be running for money.

ABSOLUTE PLEASURE-ALABAMA-MIYARS PRINCESS.

ROYAL PRODIGY has again been given a light penalty. GREENBRO is very impressive in mornings, can do well on clean getaway from gates. DELTA DELIGHT has a useful rider.

ALWAYS ON TOP-DELTA DELIGHT-SUNSPIRIT.

9. ALWAYS LOVE was a most impressive winner who has been regularly tracked for long. SPEAR TOOTH ran well under a work jockey, has a chance.ICE SPLENDOUR was given a shabby run last time but I don’t think the trainer will be interested in winning for the fading out owner, his horses will do well after they are sold. KOLAVERI DI ran well for first time with a clear action, should now progress.

GLORY AWAITS-PUNJAB MAIL-MASTER STROKE.

2.WANT TO LOVE has raced in terms races and is tracking impressively. RIOS GIRL has always been backed and is a failed favourite, may finally break the shackles in the suspect field, the dilemma is that the other horse who can win SSWASTIKA belongs to a common owner.

MUMBAI RACES

1. ARCHIMEDES has failed thrice as a favorite and the old saying that don’t chase loosers must be kept in mind. The dilemma with me in this case is that SUPERLICIOUS who apparently should be fancied to win based on last two runs doesn’t appeal to me for some reasons . There is much lesser chance for any other horse to win here as the indicators are not there. The first named needs to be considered once more irrespective of the fact that he packed up after shaping into the straight with out much breath. FLEETWOOD MAC runs after a break and will have to improve to figure in one two. SAMBA WARRIOR has tracked well but needs a run. The horse who has a handicap chance to place , MAGIC VISION may be opting for a run with work jockey.

ARCHIMEDES-SUPERLICIOUS-FLEETWOOD MAC.

2. ANTONIOUS MAXIMUS who is a good stayer has a chance but weight is a factor. WENTWORTH is a youngster with stout bloodlines and is comfortably placed at lower weight, but the doubt is that he has won only in class IV.STRATEGIC CHANGE is the only winner of this class but he was a poor runner last time.

WENTWORTH-ANTONIOUS MAXIMUS.

3. FABULOUS FLORENCE had won well over this trip and last time was slow off in a superior field, has a good pedigree to progress. SONG SAA won warming up over a sprint with much scope for improvement at low odds. SCARAMOUCHE is getting into fitness mode, has won at this level before- ICE COOL has not won for quite some time, has been nicely tracked and should fight out. MALKIA promised a bit in first run here but faded out in last run after a prominent forward run, may have been a ruse?

SONG SAA- FABULOUS FLORENCE-ICE COOL.

4. A very necessary run for MURIOI to tune up for the Derby, good stake money too. A pity the trainers don’t enter horses for graded races where stakes money for places is lucrative.

STAR PRINCE is on demotion, has been on the reducing run for long, trip is ideal. ADAMS PRINCE who finished on well has been sharpened in tracks. JET STREAM who is yet to race seriously is looking fitter in works.

MYKONOS had finished on with purpose under a weaker rider last time, has a fighting chance At top weight with the good rider, gates are also negative.WAR HORSE is a dilemma for the trainer, what exactly is the right distance for this horse. DREAMS R MINE has new trainer but looks in fine trim.INTESAR has been promising but runs in late, handicap is supportive as well as the comparison through the common horse in INVINCIBLE. FONTANELLE at bottom weight can do well , was hampered in the last run.

EL WONDER who has run well in a mock is from a useless trainer who survives on maybe giving tips about other stables. Hence by default STELLA should be fancied to win today as she has often been in betting order.

STELLA-PRINCE ARIUS.

2. HUDSON HAWK and PALATIAL from betting owners have worked well but riders are work jockeys. JEWEL has tracked well and dam was a speedy type. TROPPA BELLA does not impress from works, choice of rider is intriguing. WAR MACHINE is top bred and tracking well.

WAR MACHINE-JEWEL.

3. A confirmatory run for Derby hopeful JEREMIAH who should be running at cramped odds. COMMANDER who ran an improved 5th may give the favourite a run for money. SPIRIT OF MERCY goes over the suitable trip after a mock trial. The training partner ROSWALD should set the pace for the stablemate.

KOALAA from an ordinary sire has been forward in both outings and will now be ridden by a better rider, distance may trouble.MAJESTIC OPINION who has moved after a suggestive run from Bangalore is shining in tracks, should be the one to win.

MAJESTIC OPINION-CELTIC PRINCE-KOALAA.

5. SATURDAY AFFAIR has been given a fitness seeking run and will be running for money, top weight is a hazard. ALECTO has not been able to break the shackles of loosing time and again. WINDS OF CHANGE is in form, may be tried. WINDSOR can runaway if handled well , has shown promising tracks and gates. PAMUSHANA is working pleasingly.

SATURDAY AFFAIR-ALECTO-WINDSOR.

6. DREAMS OF YOU was made to do front running to facilitate stable mates win, now distance suits and handicap is comfortable. ASAHI runs with hope, tall task to win here. SHINNING PATH has worked nicely and last run was good, added distance may trouble. FOREST VISION who had been pulled a lot found her running shoes as million race was a lucrative offer, what now?ACE FANTASY from the dubious trainer is a threat here, was taken to Bangalore and did not show any interest, a strong indicator for reversal here as that is the trend with Sait’s horses.

DREAMS OF YOU-ACE FANTASY-FOREST VISION.

7. On paper NEFYN who finished strongly to beat half of the racing line up here shows he has the race in his firm grip but he has a speedy ROSIE SUNSHINE to tackle who has never lost over this distance and is improving with each run. Also in the fray is a back to from AMADEUS who still holds the record for this trip here. DANCING PHOENIX was beaten but is still on the up.

ROSIE SUNSHINE-NEFYN-AMADEUS.

8. The two horses who impressed a lot in strong finish Last time are ONE WISH and SHERLOCK HOLMES. FORTUNE HUNTER who was waited with for a long time won going away with lot of scope. MOON SHADOW from a scheming connection was a noticeable runner under a work jockey. A Merchant the aging jockey has found new vigour when riding for the lady trainer, ORIENTAL DAWN is also in reckoning.

MOON SHADOW- ORIENTAL DAWN- SHERLOCK HOLMES.

9. FEODOR who returns to race after a long break is very forward in tracks and can win. SHYGIRL is in fine nick. FOUR STAR GENERAL from a lazy trainer should have won before, is attractive in works. ZABARWAN has taken time to come to hand, needs runs.MIDNIGHT RUN has done nothing so far.

FEODOR-FOUR STAR GENERAL-SHYGIRL

BANGALORE RACES

1. A number of promising breds run here. ALERIO is bred in classic lines and has been worked to speedy level. SUPREME DOMINATOR is from speed inducing sire and is very forward in works. ATMOS looks good to be backed after the last gruelling fight against a good one. CANDICE is a promising one who is well prepared.

ATMOS-SUPREME DOMINATOR-ALERIO.

2. CARDIGAN BAY failed badly last time suggesting that he needs more distance. SMILE STONE finished on nicely and may win if backed by the connections. MARKUS SITTIKUS from a weak sire has been well tracked. BOLD NATURE is held back, can win some day at good odds. YOU’RE ROCKING from a non performing stable is waiting to be backed, last run was suggestive.

SMILE STONE-YOU’RE ROCKING-CARDIGAN BAY.

3. BANK ON ME was stopped from showing out in last run, has a good jockey now. DANCE WITH ME is in speedy form. VOLT warmed up to swamp all at good odds, may do well here also. IMPERIAL VERSE was kept back last time. TAYLOR MADE is the oldie who has the leading jockey repeating.

IMPERIAL VERSE-VOLT-BANK ON ME.

4. Cant think of any horse here troubling WHISPERING GALLERY who should be running at very low odds. SALZBURG has been tracked fine, needs a run. CANNES won well and looks improved. SMOKEY SID veered out and lost a certain race and should be the one to threaten the hot favourite.

WHISPERING GALLERY-SMOKEY SID-CANNES.

5. IMMENSE is a class horse who has been tracking very well after last run, has worrying weights. JERSEY GIRL has not won for a long time, has some potential. RIDGEWAY looks best on comparison but has not run for a long time, tracks are pleasing. SKY TRAIN is coming to form, was given a pulled run last time. ROCK WITH U has age on side but is badly placed on handicap.

IMMENSE-SKY TRAIN-RIDGEWAY.

6. ALCAZABA has staying blood and has a chance, tracks are forward. KETURAH is best performed and has credentials to stay, has progressed by wins at Mysore. MANNAT has come to hand late and last win was much improved performance.TRANCE has the international jockey who is busy giving eased up runs to fancied runners, may surprise.

TRANCE-KETURAH-MANNAT

7. CAPITALIZE is sharpened up well but lacks a race run for long. PACIFIC BLUE was a very impressive winner who is looking in great heart. GOLDEN PRINCESS may run well, was late to finish in last run. SANTA ANA beat a weak lot with disdain and will look to repeat. BLACKBIRD faces a tough lot. SCORCHING VULCAN was pulled in last run, has low weights.

PACIFIC BLUE- SANTA ANA-BLACKBIRD.

8. SEE BRIGHT was kept too far back in last run, has a handicap chance and is working well. IGAH IGAH is more of a 1400 m type. CHIRON has tracked well, needs a run for fitness. GREY CONNECTION is maintaining form. ZERMATT has a jockey who rides well sometimes only. ENTERTAINER has been working well, may run well over a trip, is one to upset.

ENTERTAINER-SEE BRIGHT-GREY CONNECTION.

9. SUPER START won well and has scope to do well even at top weight. RUMOUR HAS IT has a positive rider switch. TRIUMPHANT was a good 2nd to SOVEREIGN RULE.NOCTURNAL HUNTER is in fine form. JOLIE has shown good tracks. SHINNECOCK HILLS was interfered with, may strike at low weights.

RUMOUR HAS IT-SUPER START-TRIUMPHANT.

BANGALORE RACES

1. WHITE SNOW DROPS was pulled last time, a non performer is made to ride now. CHEDDAR FACE has not performed so far , keeps working well. BURDEN OF LADY has been given a gate by the miserly trainer?. EXTRA SPARK has never been tried, will be under the stick for definite here. BIG COPPER PENNY was backed by the owner well but just failed, what now?.

EXTRA SPARK-BIG COPPER PENNY-CHEDDAR FACE.

2. MAJOR ATTRACTION has the benefit of an easy run. PIPPIN is by a promising sire from a prolific dam, will fight out.TEMUJIN from the precocious sire is working well. TURF TACTICS has tracked fine. RED RED ROSE had fizzled out after leading in.

PIPPIN-TEMUJIN-MAJOR ATTRACTION.

3. Badly named ZIZZI has not raced up to her good breeding and does not appeal inspite of the rider. SUPER SILVER should be running well with the laid back rookie. GREAT SECRET is a well bred who has been kept on a leash, can win on backing. JET SET GO appears to be the only serious trier from a weak stable here.

GREAT SECRET-JET SET GO- SUPER SILVER.

4. WINGS OF FORTUNE has fought out a win at low weights and has shown good progress in tracks, has scope but penalty is stiff. ARTORIOUS has been given a tuning up run and has pleased in works thereafter. CINCH is a sprinter type, is winner twice, may run well. KAFKA has been prepared and will be tried now. BRIGHT LADY has shown out at the end of a staying trip in last run, has been well prepared and should be fighting out.

ARTORIOUS-BRIGHT LADY-CINCH.

5. WIND STREAM has been nicely prepared but is sitting at top weight against youngsters on the up. PANAMERA is another oldie who is shining in works but looks tough to do well here.TURF STRIKER achieved two convincing wins with ease but now concedes crucial weight. CZAR OF ROMANCE has never run well twice, hence may rebound after a bad run at Hyd. AGOSTINI who is at low weights appeals on comparison.

AGOSTINI-CZAR OF ROMANCE-TURF STRIKER.

6. VALAHAK was wrongly backed to win over longer trip in last run, present distance will suit. WILL STAR is pleasing in works. IMPRESSIVE BOLT is speedy, has a jockey who is improving. CATAMARAN is a forward runner who may surprise at lower weights.

VALAHAK-WILL STAR-IMPRESSIVE BOLT.

7. MANTRA has scope even at top weight. ARTIC ATTRACTION has an allowance rider to be in the fight after failing last time. ESTELITA may show improvement. PETER PARKER was too late to finish, has ordinary bloodlines to progress much.SPANISH CANNON has been worked to fitness, may strike.

SPANISH CANNON-PETER PARKER-ESTELITA.

8. SMITHSONITE is a good type who has a stronger rider now. STELLAR AMBITION was kept wide on purpose Last time, may improve. AMAZING REDD has been worked by the ordinary trainer, should be trying to run a genuine race, is down in scales.RED BOLT is another one who is not maintaining the mark, has an allowance rider for a try.ABNOBA has shown his true level last time, should be placing.

SMITHSONITE-AMAZING REDD-ABNOBA.

BELMONT FOR SWEEPING SUCCESS TROPHY

Thursday, January 2, 2014


MUMBAI RACES
. 1. JAIPUR GEM has been tracked but needs a run here. RISING ANGEL has been given a mock, has a weak rookie. GOLDEN SPURS is the oldest one but has a chance on handicap. ANCIENT ODDYESSEY may place on rider effort. VICTORIOUS CAUSE has won at this level before. RIO DEL REY has come down and this rider has shown that apart from being a work jockey he can fight out at good odds when so desired.

RIO DEL REY- GOLDEN SPURS.VICTORIOUS CAUSE

2. LUCKY RED was fancied well last time but weight was a stopper, now goes with a rookie who is yet to grow in confidence. FOLLOW ME had led in and folded out, may place. STRIKING SHADOW has a useful rider switch after a much improved performance. TAJ E SHAHI is thereabouts, may place.

STRIKING SHADOW-LUCKY RED-TAJ E SHAHI

3. SAVAGE GARDEN is the one who is going to take charge of proceedings in this race, has been nicely prepared and given a forward run, is comfortable over a staying trip. However the horse who looks different under the new master and is working extremely well REYNOLDS has much comfortable weights than before. SKY LANTERN from a no good trainer may also run well at pin weight as last run was suggestive. DANSE DEBONAIR may be utilised as a tactical runner by the trainer.

REYNOLDS-SAVAGE GARDEN-SKY LANTERN.

4. If the foreign jockey is worth his salt he should win this race as handicap strongly favors him to beat VICTORIOUS MARCH who showed much improvement in last run with a rookie and now runs with the top rider. The one to be in reckoning also is BRINDABAN whose last win under this rookie was achieved without much fuss and low weights are always an aid in the finish of this track. EMERGING STAR is the oldie who is climbing down steadily.

RIO-VICTORIOUS CAUSE-BRINDABAN.

5. The indicators here strongly point towards DOMINGO who has raced better than BELMONT in ARCHIE’s race at Pune but I have a strong inkling that the later will reverse the trend as he is well raced and fit and DOMINGO has only been tracking. PROTECTOR OF PARIS is very nicely bred but is being tested over a mile first time . ANCIENT WARRIOR may run well.

BELMONT-DOMINGO-PROTECTOR OF PARIS.

6. To me YELLOW ZONE has been unlucky in both of her last two runs, was a badly held up on rails and earlier fell when stepping up, she is a speedy one having beaten ZORAVAR earlier. The other horse who is catching the eye with smart works after loosing on the post in last run ONE KEPT SECRET is vying for a fighting race now. WAR HORSE showed speed in mocks but may perhaps perform after he is sold off or changes stables, something doesn’t appear to be honest here. ZIDAAN is struck with weights, has lots of early speed and ICE AGE who went lengths ahead should be well packed to go for a cool run by the trainer.

YELLOW ZONE-ONE KEPT SECRET-WAR HORSE.

7. I have always viewed favourites from Sait’s stables with great suspicion, SHISHYA played the script as feared and packed up as a favourite, he should win if rates offered are comfortable. ARZAAN has a chance to place, is working pleasingly in mornings. SCALANYA is another failed favourite who could not stay. WIND AND RAIN can do well again as he has come to form now.

SHISHYA-ARZAAN-SCALANAYA.

8. ALBUURZ has won last time in higher class and has been brought down, can strike now. GRAND MARCH has been given gates and has won at this level a year ago. BURGUNDY ROSE does not step up when required, should place again. MAGIC STAR may run a forward race, doesn’t appeal here. ARABIAN LORD finished impressively and has low weights.

GRAND MARCH-ALBUURZ-BURGUNDY ROSE.

HAPPY NEW YEAR




MYSORE RACES

1. The very well bred got abroad MAGIC ISLAND has been shunted to this centre, she has tracked very well and can score on a sincere effort. BEAUTIFUL FIN flopped as a favourite, has a weaker rider now. CATWALK QUEEN gets a proper rider after long, should show out. The oldies who are tracking very well and sitting at the lower end of scales ARGENTUM and SAMRAT need to be watched for backing, can strike.

MAGIC ISLAND-SAMRAT-ARGENTUM.

2. On performance THE BACK BENCHER has a good chance but with 5 horses from the stables entered it is difficult to read the intent of the connections. CATCHY CHARGER has a try rider but last run was too bad. JOTA is from a precocious sire but dam was ordinary and the filly appears to be backwards in tracks. VROOM VROOM may be tried to turn the tables with the good rider.
VROOM VROOM-THE BACK BENCHER-JOTA.

3. PERSIAN is an unreliable one, may warm up. BRILLANTE is tracking well and has a rider switch. BORN TO PERFORM is due for a win, has been beaten by youngsters. TAKE OFF has been prepared and should fight here. PROST is at an attractive handicap but trip is an issue.
BORN TO PERFORM-PROST-TAKE OFF.

4. TIME FLIES has been consistent but has lost speed with age. HUCKLEBERRY FINN may place again, has form. GETAFIX can hope to fight for places. GROUND MARSHAL has been nicely tracked, needs to be watched as he is down in scales. HERCULEAN may be tried with the allowance rider.
GROUND MARSHAL- GETAFIX-TIME FLIES.

5. GALAXY QUEEN is fluent in works, was gobbled up by oldies when running as a half money favourite. BELLE ETOILE has been quite consistent, has a handicap chance. CHANDINI has been given easy runs. ENDURING SPEED is working fast, aim is to earn before retirement. SHUBHKAMANA is tracking impressively, jockey could not control her last time.

BELLE ETOILE-GALAXY QUEEN-ENDURING SPEED.

6. ESOTERICAL should build up on last good run with the allowance jockey. GOLDEN SLIPPER has tough penalty for the last runaway win.Both WINTER WIND and STARLIGHT MAGIC have been sharpened up in works. AMAZER will try to finish on again. IMPEDIMENTA is a forward runner with a try rider.

STARLIGHT MAGIC-ESOTERICAL-IMPEDIMENTA.

7. AZURE FIRE can repeat if tried, last win was good. YAKEEN has good form and a questionable rider. REBECCA is tracking well, is a sissy who should head for breeding now. MIYARS PRINCESS is a speedy one who is held back.SKY HIGH is at low weights, is a well bred who was unnecessarily exposed to drugs.

AZURE FIRE-YAKEEN-REBECCA.

8. BEYOND THANKFUL was pulled last time, has shown good works. BORN ELECTRIC is tracking nicely. BLACK DRAGON was prepared and then placed, should improve upon now.
BEYOND THANKFUL-BLACK DRAGON- BORN ELECTRIC.
