CZAR OF ROMANCE FOR TIPU SULTAN CUP

Thursday, July 31, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1. CONJURER took down wager money of many when he could not accelerate at all, now goes for a run over a mile with hope. FLEET STREET is yet to place, may be fancied because of age. WHIMSICAL had tracked very pleasingly and was given a pulled run as the connections were not interested, today she is the one to fancy over the pet mile with the stable rider. Of the older lot NATION’S GLORY has better weights vis a vis the last named and will fancy her chances. YOU’RE A STAR and ROMAN’S RUN are still maiden’s and run with owner’s hopes.

WHIMSICAL-NATION’S GLORY-YOU’RE A STAR.

2. VENCEDORA is tracking well and impressed in gates, has burden of weight. HELPING HAND rallied well along the rails to get the nod for the sporting owner, should improve. RAPID ADVANCE took down enough wager money with a bad run, looks tough in this field to win. JINGLE BELLS could not last out in the straight after a forward rally, has good breeding. JAMES BOND from a modest sire is tracking well, the betting owners have often struck when odds are favorable. TURF TACTICS is from the top broodmare sire and finished on late last time, has hopes with the rider repeating.

TURF TACTICS-JAMES BOND- JINGLE BELLS.

3. Indian Derby Winner SUPER STORM has been a different horse since that win, has shown some improvement in tracks and may be able to get on board in this suspect group. CZAR OF ROMANCE looks a shade better than the field based on a good 2nd in Derby and the recent blazing track works. CHARLATAN can run well even with the weak rider. ARABIAN WARRIOR has won just one race in Kolkatta and doesn’t appeal on handicap, has tracked well and gets the stable main jockey at low weights.

CZAR OF ROMANCE-CHARLATAN-ARABIAN WARRIOR.

4. CASTLE STUART has run forward races this season and relishes the underfoot conditions, has weight as a stopper. ANCIENT TILE went for a catchy spurt after a fine win, can handle the added distance but penalty is to be considered, has a chance to go all the way . ROYAL REIN may find the company tough, has tracked well. NOBLE REWARD is at a catchy handicap and if ridden well should score an upset, the 2nd to BOLD MAJESTY was notable. BERING SEA has been given runs by average riders and is showing out in mornings, will try to run away, the jockey has merit.

NOBLE REWARD-ANCIENT TILE-BERING SEA.

5. ALL PROOF has not done anything for long, the rider repeats over the distance of a mile whereas a shorter trip may be more suitable. PRICELESS ACE who won warding off is brother to black type SOUTHERN BAY and though last victory was achieved in a hard fought run the gelding looks much improved and should repeat easily. HIDDEN HERO may be seen to have better scales but will find it hard to win despite the hard working rider. ABBA looks a keen candidate for places.

PRICELESS ACE-HIDDEN HERO-ALL PROOF.

6. ETERNAL DESIRE who was pulled last time should easily beat this weak lot, the horse had finished well in winters to a good sprinter in RED RED ROSE, but racing is dominated by a big factor called INTENT, the connections including the rider have controversial background, hence watch for ring action. The honest tryer should be COOL SPRINGS who showed improvement in last effort. MIRACLES OF LIFE has performed well and tracks regularly. ZULFIQAR who was a notable finisher in winters has been nicely prepared but goes with a rider known for his lack of competence.EQUINE LOVE ran weakly, has not been tracked and it would be a big surprise if this one can rattle the others today.

ETERNAL DESIRE-MIRACLES OF LIFE-COOL SPRINGS.

MURCILAGO FOR FEATURE PLUM RACE

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


MYSORE RACES.

1. SHADES OF SCARLET and PENALTY KICK are both of same level with reasonable form, which one will be tried is a difficult problem, the former impressed in tracks. TIME MATTERS who was a close 2nd is working nicely. PROST has a worthwhile rider repeating, has not won for long, has handicap in favour. ARC ANGEL was kept handy in last run, rider repeats.

PROST-SHADES OF SCARLET-TIME MATTERS.

2. LAGOONA has been backwards so far, had won a maiden’s race last year, latest track is encouraging. PRINCE OF SYRIA has not raced for a long time, has run well in both outings last year but looks out of form now. ARCHER had finished well in REAL POTENTIAL’S race but when backed by public for place ran way behind, may do well again. MAGNETIC POWER is coming to form, has worked impressively.

LAGOONA-MAGNETIC POWER-ARCHER.

3. SPINNING CHAKRAM was beaten as a surprise by a younger horse, today he has a much better rider and has a field of older horses to beat. DEMANDING FORMAT was finishing nicely last time and can get the added distance. YAMAS can stay, has weak form.

SPINNING CHAKRAM-DEMANDING FORMAT.

4. GRAND SUCCESS has raced with better ones, has tracked fine but jockey is weak. SUNNY SEVEN may run well, was kept easy in only run. SEA RUNNER impressed in the last win and will look to repeat. SECOND LADY is one paced and has limitations, tracks are impressive and horse is down in scales .CATERINA has come down from class 3, can win any day now.

CATERINA-SEA RUNNER-SECOND LADY.


5. The younger horses have lower weights and are on the up and should be contesting this one. TERI ADAH was a runaway winner who should be favorite now, has maintained form in works. RISING ROMEO has always played up in gates, he is the one in top fettle in morning works. PAMUSHANA is nicely bred but gets a weak rider who surprisingly is picking up good rides, our Delhi trainers think he is no good. PRECEPT is the oldie who has good early speed and is in form.

TERI ADAH-RISING ROMEO-PRECEPT.

6. The one who has weight advantage today is TOUCH OF ROMANCE, she had finished on nicely last time and is working fine. The horse who impressed much in last run was YOUNG GALLANT who carried the raw rookie all the way with ease. The one who has got out of the bad habit at gates is AYMAN , he is bound to run better today, has won at this level with this rider before. And off course my horse to beat all as an upset is GAYLE STORM who has not raced for long but has the looks of a winner at good odds.

GAYLE STORM-TOUCH OF ROMANCE-AYMAN.

7. FINK would be the obvious choice of most as the unbeaten horse is in tremendous form. The one who is nicely placed to trouble the favorite is RISING RANI as she goes at better weight advantage than in winters when she ran 2 nd to the first named.PRECIOUS REPLICA who had placed 3rd in that race has improved much this summer. Now have a look at MURCILAGO and I am tempted to tip him for the days event as he is sitting at low weights vis a vis the first named who had beaten him in a maiden’s race, and the rider gives added edge.The breeding is also suggestive of a miler and that makes it all the more in favor of the lower weights.

MURCILAGO-RISING RANI-FINK.

8. RULE FOREVER is a failed favorite who works well but runs ordinary, has a weak rider. ICE SKATER has a rider who can do well, horse needs hard riding. ROBINHOOD PANDEY is quite consistent and gets a allowance rider who has potential. ACE PRINCESS is a front runner with low weights and a try jockey.

ACE PRINCESS-ICE SKATER-RULE FOREVER.

9. ESOTERICAL is the horse who refuses to come to form despite all tactics of the trainer, has weights against performance. TIME TO TIME was a suggestive runner who is tracking well. NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE was given a very indifferent ride, has scope to run well. STYLE OF SIGNATURE who was a good 2nd has a useful handicap and distance suits.

STYLE OF SIGNATURE-TIME TO TIME-NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE.

DAYS BEST=====SPINNING CHAKRAM

BOLD MAJESTY FOR SUMMER MILLION

Sunday, July 27, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1. APPY’S PRIDE has worrying weights, has placed a few times and goes with a try rider. SUMMER GOLD is catching the eye with smart works and looks like a gamble horse for the leading trainer with the striking rider. EMANCIPATION from the low grade trainer has been worked, this is a big indication, may get involved as she has won with this rider at this level before. QUARTER CASK is showing improvement in tracks. YOU'RE A STAR is still a maiden, may place at low weights under the good rider.

SUMMER GOLD-EMANCIPATION-YOU’RE A STAR.

2. OUR LITTLE DRAGON who has been placing has a chance here but he is still a amiden after 7 runs and belongs to a trainer not known to win in maiden’s races. GOOD FRUIT ran a bad race when backed heavily , looks unreliable with a faulty action. GALWAY GIRL tracked very impressively prior to last race but was not sighted anywhere under a try rider. So the field may be at the mercy of the daughter of sires of sires ; SUPER QUEEN who has been nicely prepared.

SUPER QUEEN-OUR LITTLE DRAGON-GOOD FRUIT.

3. KING JULIEN who has not raced this season has a handicap chance, impressed a lot in gates.COOL HAND was a fine winner who goes with a rookie to cover for the penalty, had earlier failed as a favorite with a weaker rider. RESURGENT was a front running winner who beat a weaker lot, looks much improved. VISTABELLA has been tracking very regularly but lacks a run, should be the one to watch in the ring. AMAZON BAY has slid down with runs and now goes at low weights, may upset.

AMAZON BAY- KING JULIEN –COOL HAND.

4. The two off springs of classic sire MULTIDIMENSIONAL should be prime contenders here, on count of breeding BOLD MAJESTY towers over GODSPEED , whereas performance wise nothing much can separate the two.In the Derby B MAJESTY was a keen runner till the stable mate came up to go away. Another well bred TORCH BEARER has come to hand a bit late and is shining in works, last win was very impressive. The one who has pleased in runs is THE GENERAL who can upset.

BOLD MAJESTY-GODSPEED-TORCH BEARER.

5. In the absence of usual indicators it is difficult to say about the fitness level of FIELD MARSHAL and SOUTHERN EMPEROR, both have not been seen by track reporters in months. RIDGEWAY has a good chance based on the last good finish but he is basically a miler. INQUISITION who is tracking very well may be considered over this distance which is suitable to his style of running. LAD STAR is bound to bring the field into the view, has penalty to beat.

INQUISITION-RIDGEWAY-LAD STAR.

6. SCENIC BLAST is a speedy one who has been given runs, can go all the way with this rider who won on this one in good style in winters. The one who is working fast is WIND AND FLIGHT, the horse has changed stables, owner has left his wards at the mercy of trainers , this one may be going for a serious run. BALLANTOY who moves to a new trainer has been coming down in scales, may run well at this handicap. SANS FRONTIERS is an odd one, he beat a highly competitive field of youngsters last year at lucrative odds and then flopped when backed heavily, has tracked well.

SCENIC BLAST-WIND AND FLIGHT-SANS FRONTIERS.

7. VIVID IMPRESSION and SAKCHI won their last starts impressively and will be looking forward to do well again but two factors are against, one is the added distance and second they are conceding weight. The one who stands out on breeding and some smart works now is REPUBLICAN STAR, watch for backing as the owner is known to go negative on public fancies quite often. PASSING FULCRUM appears to be bullish and is yet to come to hand. ARZIKI is due to run well soon.

REPUBLICAN STAR-VIVID IMPRESSION-ARZIKI.

FATAL ATTRACTION FOR SQUANDERER TROPHY

Saturday, July 26, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1. Trainer Caddy plans for the kill and waits for long to get the right race for launching his horses mostly in sprints and has been very successful in doing so. SUMMER SKY has not been pressurized so far in 3 outings and has now been tracked and fed, should be running a forward race, breeding is mediocre. The one who is meriting attention lately is the son of the trainer Warren , and since he is gaining in confidence with each win, the Narredu family has a challenger for Yash, THEJAGUAR should be the one to beat, alas he has a short fuse but the handicap is in favor, may last out. YOU’RE SCINTILLATING is bound to be backed with the good rider at low weights, horse is coming up well in works. BIG COPPER PENNY from a weak stable may also pitch in, has won a sprint in winters.

THEJAGUAR-SUMMER SKY-YOU’RE SCINTILLATING.

2. FATAL ATTRACTION who is a decent got abroad had run well in Mumbai and is looking fluent in works and should be the favorite over this distance. SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT has a fair pedigree, the half sister to CARPE DIEM had run an encouraging race and has services of the best rider. SAGRADA has been tracking well to improve upon last run. The trainer appears to be taking his time with the well bred STARRY MOMENT, full brother to AMBITIOUS REWARD, may improve upon last bad run.

FATAL ATTRACTION-SUNDAY SPOTLIGHT-SAGRADA.

3. JOLIE is a speedy one with a try rookie, last run was easy. COLOUR OF GOLD won authoritatively and has been well penalised, retains form in works. MANTRA was not a serious tryer last time, has sparkled in works. VIGOROUS ran a weak race, gets a strong rider now. CHERRY HINTON has a work jockey after a try run, negative tactics of the trainer.

MANTRA-COLOUR OF GOLD-JOLIE.

4. MYSTIC MUSIC who is on the up has a tough job at this handicap, retains form though with some fine tracks. SALT OF THE EARTH is speedy in tracks. GLITTERING won well but has stepped into tough company. SCHIOVANE ran much below par in Fillies Trials, looks fit. ALERIO won warding off, has a fighting chance again.

ALERIO-SCHIOVANE-GLITTERING.

5. ARROGANT APPROACH could not match up with an aged horse in last run while conceding weight, has trained on to be in the fight once again. AMAZING REDD has been in forward form but why this distance? MADDOX has come down by a load and this unpredictable one can be the up setter of the day. SHAKA ZULU who showed improvement with a belated finish in last run has switched over to a new stable from a lazy trainer’s yard.

MADDOX-ARROGANT APPROACH-SHAKA ZULU.

6. ANECDOTE is well bred for sprints but last win was a stretching one, may be favored to win with the striking rookie. Ignore ANDINA and EVALINA here, both are ordinary. FRUIT PRINCE is from a scheming trainer , has been kept away from the rush in both the runs, can easily beat this lot on a sincere try, he had beaten TEMUJIN who easily beat ANECDOTE in winters. OYE COME VA is yet to come to hand. MYSTIC SHADOW is pleasing in works and has low weights.

FRUIT PRINCE-ANECDOTE-MYSTICAL SHADOW.

7. Gowda is a pathetic trainer and with poor record keeps getting horses to train. MICKY MOUSE was unnecessarily touted as a good thing and sunk in with out a fight last time, now he pitches in the badly managed BEAUTY IS TRUTH also, both have little chance on handicap. Bottom weighted SANTA ANA who was covering yards in last 200 metres of last race is the one who should get the mile. AZETIC STAR is more of a sprinter and an unreliable one. STIMULATE and ARCTIC ATTRACTION have attracted sizeable penalty for last runaway wins, the later had beaten SANTA ANA in winters and will look to do so again.

SANTA ANA-ARTIC ATTRACTION-MICKY MOUSE.

PEPITO FOR AMOROUS KNIGHT TROPHY

Friday, July 25, 2014


PUNE RACES.

1. The two youngsters need to find their feet first, WITHOUT FEAR is a better bred who is from a speedy mare but has a raw rookie. ANNABETH has raced against better ones and may do well in this open field. GLORIOUS CROWN has been tracked and gets a try rider, is down in scales. PUNE WARRIORS from a very low rated trainer has been given gates, may get to run for money.

GLORIOUS CROWN-ANNABETH-WITHOUT FEAR.

2. HALLE is down a lot in scales and is working nicely, may upset. TRANCE has a sincere rider and is looking fit, the trainer remains an enigma, has spoiled many such horses.WINGS OF GLORY impressed in gates, may run well. ORIENTAL ROCKY is getting into shape. SHYGIRL has a handicap chance but I am convinced after opening days races that the rider is favoring the bookies.

HALLE-TRANCE-SHYGIRL.

3. CUT DIAMOND belongs to a trainer who has been a low performer in last couple of seasons, this horse was given a loosing ride when hotly bet upon in Mumbai last time, has scales in favor. CAESARINA who raced to finish on well in the same race has a keen rookie. SUNSHINE HEART is a speedy one who goes with a fresh rookie. LIGHT OF ARABIA can run a forward race.

CUT DIAMOND-SUNSHINE HEART-CAESARINA.

4. QUEEN is being worked regularly. ZANTHOS still searches for maiden win, has an outside chance. BRAVE FIGHTER has been at this level in last few runs, gets a good rider. CASINO JACK has worked fine, rider is useful, may run well. DOUBLE O QUITS has a weak rider, may place. SAMAY BALWAN has been given easy runs to get scales down, goes with a try rider. MAHIMA is at low weights and has been kept out of scuffle for a long time, should be in firing line today, may upset in this uncertain field.

MAHIMA-SAMAY BALWAN-ZANTHOS.

5. PEPITO has impressed in his races at Mumbai and will be running well. SPADES who was backed heavily last time ran pathetically, has tracked fine now. ATHENS has run over distanaces in better company and should be the prime racer here, looks well in works. SIMPLY DIVINE has a work jockey, runs have been encouraging.

PEPITO-ATHENS-SPADES.

6. The four year olds are a speedy lot with INVINCIBLE having a definite edge on comparison , but what can be said about the rider, will he perform or not? , the horse is catching the eye with smart works. INTESAR has shown lots of speed when tried and she goes at low weights. On pure handicap CELSIUS is the one to trouble all, has a rookie to hit the front with.

INVINCIBLE-INTESAR-BRINDABAN.

7. ROYAL PASSION is working well but concedes lots of weight. ZENOFIC had a useful winter and her 2nd to TIGER TOPS should be factored in . MERCHANT OF VENICE has run in good company and now goes at low weights. The one to upset is nicely renamed DHANYAVAAD who has been given runs for long by work boys and is now looking keen from tracks.

DHANYAVAAD-ZENOFIC-MERCHANT OF VENICE.

8. ICE GATE is a speedy one who has won at this level last year. OPEN OFFER has been working fine and should improve upon Mumbai efforts. SEVEN SEAS may run well with this rider for the new trainer of the horse. LEONITE from a good mare has not raced since a bad maiden attempt, should have benefited from the rest and training.

ICE GATE-OPEN OFFER-SEVEN SEAS.
9. GREAT EXPECTATIONS from an ordinary sire had won his last race in style with a strong finish to pip ARTISTE who won well yesterday, the placement of a good rider is a strong indicator from a manipulative stable. GRAND DUKE has not been able to win despite a few attempts, has handicap chance again. ALEJOR had impressed early in career but then faded out, may run well. EARTH TAMER has won at this level last year and should be trying.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS-GRAND DUKE-EARTH TAMER.

PUNE OPENING DAY RACES.

1. STAR PRINCE who has not been tracked is the only one with a winners tag in this race, having won 3 times over this trip, and all others have yet to place even. SPEAR OF TRIUM has a foreign rider , has been prepared after easy runs in Mumbai , dam was a speedy one winner of 7 sprints. DONATA who has been plagued with injuries early in life looking very forward and has low weights to strike. IT’S HIGH TIME has a good rider , may run well with a changed name.

DONATA-SPEAR OF TRIUM-IT’S HIGH TIME.

2. DREAMLAND is working well and can provide the rider with first win here. TILIEST is the oldie who may be backed but needs to get a few runs for a serious backing. POLAR ZONE has good early speed. HIGHWAY EXPRESS who had won comfortably in last start has tracked nicely, should do well at this level.

DREAMLAND-HIGHWAY EXPRESS-TITLIEST.

3. SONG OF AFRICA is a good sprinter who did well last season, has top weight and a weak rider as negatives. WINDSOR QUEEN is showing out in tracks, has good sped and will fight out. CROWNED PRINCESS is the aged one who looks fit and gets the try rider from the stable. BURGUNDY ROSE is one paced , has been given reducing runs and impressed in recent gates, should be the prime contender at this level.

WINDSOR QUEEN- BURGUNDY ROSE CROWNED PRINCESS.

4. GREEK GOD is a precocious one who reeled off ins in all 3 runs in youngsters category, now runs against class horses and will have to dig deep to win again.

RAJSAMMAN-GREEK GOD-WASABI.

DREAMLINER has been given 15 easy runs since he won at this level in this class last Pune season and is now tracking well, should be the one to watch on backing by the gambling connections. TAHRIR can sprint well at low weights.

DREAMLINER-HIDDEN ASSET-SILSILA

6. DANCING PRANCES was gallant in defeat in sprinters cup , has weights to carry on the grassy surface and is conceding weight to speedy types. OKAVANGO is looking quite fit from works, will run a forward race. FALCON has tracked well, needs a bit more of ground for finishing on. ZORAAVAR is a good type who is always fighting for supremacy, can be a serious threat to all. HEAT WAVE may be tried at low weights, had a wonderful last season.

ZORAAVAR-DANCING PRANCES-FALCON.

7. ACT OF VALOUR by an ordinary sire had impressed a lot with a good forward run, is tracking well. ELAHEH is from a speedy sire and was nicely prepared in Mumbai, had an educational run, can surprise here. FULL MOON should be favored to win as she was a fighting looser to good type THE GENERAL, looks fit. SOMEONE SPECIAL had come up well to challenge the winner in last race, tracks are pleasing. The well bred ZADORA has caught the eye with speedy gates, may trouble all in maiden run.

FULL MOON-ZADORA-ACT OF VALOUR.

8. ARTISTE is from a good sire and has credentials to win today as he has finished ahead of main adversaries in INTIME and JEWEL in mumbai, is showing keen works. The other two are also working fast. QUIZICAL who is half sister to good type CHALA JA BACHA has impressed in preparation.

ARTISTE-INTIME- JEWEL.

9. FORGOTTEN VOICE is a nice bred who impressed in last win over a mile, should be fancied in this class. ROMEO is another youngster with a strong tali line , has been raced in tough company hence difficult to say the exact level on handicap.

MYSORE RACES.

1. ICE BROWN ran a fighting 2nd recently and has a better rider now, may be favored to win in current form. The challenge is going to emerge from SMOKEHEAD who had won under this rider about a year ago, has been given pulled runs so far. NERON has not earned anything for far to long, may do well. HARD TO PIN DOWN is the one who led last time and has been tracked fast, goes with a rookie for a try.

SMOKEHEAD-ICE BROWN-HARD TO PIN DOWN.

2. JAZZBYTHEBAY has been given easy runs and has now been prepared to run well, has not won for long. ARCHER was kept well back and finished late when not in betting order last time, watch for support now. The one with a disinterested owner who has been failing as favorite quite often , LAKE OF MAGIC is waiting to run true when odds will be to the liking of the trainer. I LOVE YOU will lead well but has a short fuse.

JAZZBYTHEBAY-ARCHER-LAKE OF MAGIC.

3. GRAN TURISMO has many things on his side except the fact that his trainer and rider have a bad record with well backed horses. ADONIS who was given easy runs before the last flying effort is sure to trouble at low weights with a keen rider STAR MOUNTAIN had lost a hard fought battle and retains form. ALWAYS ON TOP is the most tracked horse on the circuit, distance is ideal.

GRAN TURISMO-STAR MOUNTAIN-ADONIS.

4. SANTA MARIA was a runaway winner who has age on his side, should repeat on a sincere effort, looks fit. CASH IS KING is maintaining good form before retirement and looks to rake in some more place money. FLASH TIME needs a run, fitness is doubtful. MOTHER EWA who led well into the straight goes over ideal trip in forward form.

SANTA MARIA-FLASH TIME-MOTHER EWA.

5. Three horses with try riders are from one stable to confuse the issue, on top of this four horses ran together in same race last time. AZURE FIRE who was looking keen in last 200 m was suddenly over taken by stable mate to win, now with the placement of Srinath on this one the story may be different. DISTANT PROMISE is a good type but has a weak rider again. SKY HIGH has been hardly worked after the win early in season, may run well. DIVINE FRIENDSHIP who was backed a bit ran a poor race and can not reverse the trend so soon.

AZURE FIRE-DISTANT PROMISE-SKY HIGH.

6. BELLE ETOILE was kept way back and handy in last run, has been worked well since then and has won at this level before. ZAMINDAR who was leading in well in the same race, later ran a pathetic race next time, remains unreliable. The one who is catching the ey is MAGIC ISLAND, from a good speedy sire but languishing with a below par trainer whose favorites are often biting the dust. YOUNG GALLANT has a weak rider to offset the penalty for last win.

BELLE ETOILE-MAGIC ISLAND-YOUNG GALLANT.

7. TULIP who is from a speedy sire was eased up near the finish and got away with a light fine, has the looks of a winner on genuine try. KALLISTRATE was backed quite a bit but went down tamely last time, has some form. RISING LITTLE STAR has a better rider after a reasonable run, can p[lace. SWIFT has tracked fine, needs a run .

TULIP-KALLISTRATE-SWIFT.

1. INDIAN HERO has been tracking well and distance suits. RISING AFFAIRS has not been tried so far, has been prepared well. TANDAV was leading in strongly last time but faded out close home, has a weak rider for the job. PROST has been hanging at this level and may get into places, rider repeats.

INDIAN HERO-TANDAV-RISING AFFAIRS.

2. AYAHUASCA flopped very badly and needs to be ignored today. MURCILAGO looks well prepared after a gallant run and will be a strong favorite. FRIENDS FOREVER should be interested in sprinting ahead and may get on board. CRISPY DELIGHT has been given an easy run, goes with hope to place.

MURCILAGO-AYAHUSCA-FRIENDS FOREVER.

3. AERIAL ACROBAT was a fighting looser from the leading trainer, watch for backing. The one paced SECOND LADY has a good rider and has tracked fine, may run a different race. CATERINA who is tracking regularly is down a lot, may upset any day. REAL POTENTIAL has a tough penalty, had beaten a weak lot, very tough for repeat.

SECOND LADY-CATERINA-REAL POTENTIAL.

4. SPIRITUAL BLUE won well and looks to be in fine form. CASTLEBAR has the rider repeating, will look to fight out. RIMCOLLIAN has been given an easy run, tracks are fine and has a handicap chance here. LA PIEPRI won fighting out, has a tough penalty to beat.

RIMCOLLIAN-SPIRITUAL BLUE-CASTLEBAR.


5. ROYAL SHAAN has done more than enough, has stepped up in scales. SUMO has been a different horse here, may be the trainer in not feeding him well. ARTIC ROSE was an impressive winner who is retaining form. SO FAST has been on the decline, struggles in the straight and needs to be ignored. LAD KING is a beaten favorite who has low weights. BEYOND THANKFUL was a runaway winner who will look to repeat, has a tough penalty.

ARTIC ROSE-BEYOND THANKFUL-LAD KING.

6. MISS INTERNATIONAL is raking in money with each run and is a good handicapper. HEAVENLY DIVAS was a sketchy runner who looked good for a short time in the home run before fading out, may do well. HAUTE ECOLE may place now, has run forward races. STYLE OF SIGNATURE has distance to worry about, may last out.

HEAVENLY DIVAS-HAUTE ECOLE-STYLE OF SIGNATURE.

7. TIME FLIES warmed up well to go away for fine win, has penalty to tackle. BORN FOR BEAUTY may place again, has initial speed and a try allowance rider. PRECEPT is a speedy one who impressed in last fighting effort.

AMAZING GRACE LOOKS GOOD FOR ST LEGER

Sunday, July 20, 2014


BANGALORE RACES.

1 ARZIKI gets a good rider after a long time and has been tracked by the work miserly trainer. AS GOOD AS IT GETS has been given handy works, one of the two brothers is going to be serious and other one easy, what exactly happened to SUEZIE OH yesterday?. I would pitch in for the well prepared LIEGE LORD who was given a pulled ride last time, he is shinning in works. ALWAYS REMEMBERING is a speedy one , distance is a bit of an untried area.

LIEGE LORD-ARZIKI-AS GOOD AS IT GETS.

2. COOL HAND was entrusted to a weak rider and yet was backed well, may have lost due to inept handling, looks fresh in tracks and has a top rider to boot. The threat is from the non performing trainer’s RED ADMIRAL who is down in scales and has worked well. MY LAW has low weights and showed out with a speedy track recently, has not been tried for long. SUNDAY CRUZ may run a forward race.

COOL HAND-MY LAW-RED ADMIRAL.

3. Against the norm, the 3 year olds look suspect here, specially over the longer trip.OBELLINA PRINCESS is the one who ran well last time and is showing sparkle in tracks , but she has a sire totally unreliable of producing winners in a staying race. EVERAZ has top weight against and that gives a good chance to the top rider to take ELITE MODEL all the way at low weights, ignore last handy run with a non try rider.

ELITE MODEL-OBELINNA PRINCESS.

4. PEARL REWARD who belongs to a well known manipulative type owner has a good chance to win on sincere try as he lost to good type IRISH SONG who easily defied the penalty by winning again. The one who has a handicap chance to do well is WOODSTREAM but he has the non performing trainer. AMAZONAS who is one paced is ridden by an enigma called Rawal, a very ordinary rider with many negatives. REWARDING DESIRE is working pleasingly and is down in scales. A tricky race with horses with a chance being ridden/ trained by brothers/cousins.

PEARL REWARD-REWARDING DESIRE-AMAZONAS.

5. It is difficult to look at anyone else but AMAZING GRACE for the plum event as she has beaten the two convincingly and the fact that many other s have been scared away by her entry here, should be running at miserly odds.

AMAZING GRACE.

6. JERSEY SHORE is not in the fighting shape as he was last year as the trainer has been neglecting him, looks difficult at top weight. SOVEREIGN RULE has tracked well, the trainer has a poor record this season, the horse runs in class after many runs in black type races, hence difficult to say about chances at this level. SHIVALIK FIRE showed a lot of improvement in last good win, may do well again. ICE CUTTER is tracking well. AMAZING REDD continues to be at an attractive handicap and keeps getting beaten, has the rider who had won on this one before. NEXT MOVE was a flashy 3rd, goes at low weights.

SOVEREIGN RULE-AMAZING REDD-SHIVALIK FIRE.

7. SUPER FORCE who was well backed down recently was giuven a shabby ride, may be deliberately as the horse was kept way back till the home run where she was finishing well, should win in this poorly prepared lot of maidens. The threat is from home, DORSODURO is a top bred who is brother to TINTINABULATION & ALBERTINO, has been given a few tracks. RED BOLT is another well bred who has been kept away from work. ENAMORATA has been tracking since winters, looks fit to run well for the new trainer.

SUPER FORCE-ENAMORATA-DORSODURO.

8. SCUFFLE has been actively tracked since he broke a blood vessel on opening day, looks fit to race well. DEEP BLUE SEA was given a disinterested ride last time, should provide the trainer with his first win on self owned horse. GAME DANCER is still a keen runner at this age, has been working well. ACTIVE GREY has raced with superior types , may not be interested to spoil the handicap over a sprint.

BANGALORE RACES.

1. SUZIE OH has a chance with a try rider, has failed as a favorite in winters. ORIENTAL BEEL has a stiff penalty for last runaway win, difficult to repeat. SILHOUETTE has failed twice when favored, is one paced and goes with a work rider. RAAGA has not earned for very very long, can run a different race any day. ROCK N ROLLA has been given easy runs with out having been stretched ever, has been tracking regularly and kept handy from track reporters, watch for backing.BALANCE OF NATURE is impressive in tracks. MISTER GREY should run a forward race, but distance is short.

ROCK N ROLLA-RAAGA-MISTER GREY.

2. ZULU FANTASY who had a handicap chance last time, had gone negative before the race and the small framed gelding raced below expectations, has worked impressively to be in reckoning again. Older horse YOU’RE ROCKING who is a winner of 3 races may get involved if bet upon by the notorious type of connections.INTERACTIVE has the good rider repeating, looks improved and has a weak field to tackle. CELESTIAL STORM impressed in gates and may be tried.

INTERACTIVE-ZULU FANTASY-YOU’RE ROCKING.

3. SECRET TOUCH who was ridden half heartedly has a positive rider switch and should be a serious contender. LIQUID ASSET at bottom of the scales has a handicap chance but has a weak rider with a new trainer to plod in. TRADITION has a better rookie now for the in form horse to run a forward race. HONOURABLE EMPRESS has been given an easy run, may place now.


SECRET TOUCH-TRADITION-LIQUID ASSET.

4. SOVIET UNION had impressed a lot in maiden win and last run was in tough company, has low weights now to be a major contender here. SAIRANI was an impressive finisher who was finishing on and will like this distance . JERSEY BRIDE runs with hope, may place. CELTIC PRINCE is impressive in works and retains form. Of the older lot LOVELY LADY has been a decent performer and may fight out.

SOVIET UNION- SAIRANI-CELTIC PRINCE.

5. The moderateley bred TRIUMPH has had a very good run and is perhaps the best son of his sire, last run was amazing and he will look to repeat despite the top weight.ARTA has a slight edge on the scales but looked faded out when folding up close home. From the older lot ICELANDER was given a soft run in and yet he was a fast finisher who has a rider switch. IRON MARSHAL is waiting for the correct level, ran an encouraging race with an average rider last time.

TRIUMPH-IRON MARSHAL-ICELANDER.

6. The ordinarily bred got abroad SCARLET EMPEROR was no match to the winner when backed well in last race, seemed to be plodding in futile chase, has been tracking fine, but has a weak lot of ill prepared adversaries and may yet again open as a favorite. SWITCH who ran a good forward race has a moderate rider to trouble the favorite. The bred in purple STYLE N GRACE looks a bit soft in works and belongs to a trainer who is all at seas this season. SCORCHING also needs a run, has not been given fast work.

SCARLET EMPEROR-SWITCH-STYLE N GRACE.

7. LITTLE LOVE, KENTUCKY ROSE , STIMULATOR are horse with a short fuse and will be targeted for this shorter sprint. The first named was given a weak ride in higher class and came in wide of the runners, has a good chance. KENTUCKY ROSE ran a good forward race and may be a serious contender now. STIMULATOR has lots of early speed, last 100 yards are the problem. My choice is the well tracked ANFIELD who has not performed for a long time and has been prepared by the canny trainer.

ANFIELD-LITTLE LOVE-KENTUCKY ROSE.

8. ARTORIOUS has not raced for long , needs this run. ACCURACY was a late finisher, has potential over the sprint in current form. BEFOREMEMORYFADES has been summering well here, looks in fine fettle and can win if tried. GRAND APPLAUSE was an impressive runner who maintains form. YELLOW ZONE has been on the decline, has a rider switch. ASSIDIOUS has a tougher group to face now.

MYSORE RACES.

1. BIG STORM placed for first time in his career and showed improvement and will be favored as the good rider is repeating. The serious challenge should come from SUPREME STRENGTH who is winner of 3 races and has been bOught down with runs and tracked well. TIME MATTER carries form to place again. PEPPR is more of a sprinter.

SUPREME STRENGTH-BIG STORM-TIME MATTERS.

2. ROYAL SHAAN had achieved a runaway victory post to post against youngsters and look at the oppostion now, only SPANIARD who has better weight advantage may be able to match up if he rides on with out veering out. YAMAS is a stayer who is not in form and has an average rider.

ROYAL SHAAN-SPANIARD.

3. RICKETY ROCK from the trainer in form had lost close home to BEST MOVE who repeated, has a good chance but from where has this rider cropped up?QUEENS CRUISE is quietly picking up stakes money and has the rider who amazingly always rode behind the bunch in all his rides at Delhi but is a different person here. JUMP IN THE RED had won a maiden last summers and is hence due for a win, has the good rider and has been shaped up by the new connections. . PERFECT SPEED was given a forward ride and fizzled out as a favorite, what now with a rookie?DEMAND DRAFT has come down in handicap and has low weights.

RICKETY ROCK-JUMP IN THE RED-DEMAND DRAFT.

4. I have been tipping GAYLE STORM this season, the horse has gate problems, should win on level jump at this handicap, slipped out well in mocks. Another tardy jumper AYMAN has similar dilemma, is a winner of 2 races but has a non reliable rider. CHARM AND DREAM hopes to do well over a mile as the sires produce has no speed in sprints. SMALL CRUISE has the rookie who won on her earlier.


GAYLE STORM-CHARM AND DREAM-AYMAN.

5. RISING RANI is the youngster who finished a faraway 2nd to the far superior FINK, has a chance at low weights in this bunch. CAMPEON has been given an easy race and now goes with the stable try rider at low weights. The ones who could be considered from the older lot are BEN TEN and AZTEC GOLD who are notorious in getting slow out from gates and are unreliable. MIDTOWN MAGIC has raced in class 1 and is sliding down in form and handicap. GROUND MARSHALL has been well tracked and goes with a keen rider.

RISING RANI-CAMPEON-GROUND MARSHALL.

6. TIME TO TIME is regularly tracked and should be in firing line again. GOLDEN WISDOM has not performed for long, last run has bought this one to some form. GREENBRO will try to rake in money prior to retirement. ICE BROWN showed out in mocks, but look at the last bad run. ENSATUS ELEGANCE was a fair 2nd who will be tried with the rider repeating.

ENSATUS ELEGANCE-TIME TO TIME-ICE BROWN.

7. SANCY who is much better bred than all here had lost as a favorite in suspicious circumstances, has to be beaten now. FIRST LIGHT who has run ahead of the first named in winters was a piping hot favorite and ran like a mule last time, can not show reversal of form so soon. BLACKWIND was an impressive 2nd who has the looks of fighting out. MASTER OF THE ROLLS is tracking well, needs a run.

BANGALORE RACES.

1. EQUAL TERMS who is reasonably bred is showing some promising fast tracks and should be favored to beat the average lot here, was kept on leash in last easy run. FLEET STREET had run a forward race in winters and may be tried. ZUCHHERO has not come to hand despite a number of gate practices and remains a suspect for a good jump, needs this run. THE SUPREMO has hardly been tracked and the rider is getting a feel of Indian conditions as he was just poodle faking on all his rides on Saturday.

EQUAL TERMS-FLEET STREET-ZUCHERRO.

2. SCARLET O HARA has done well with the whip less Yash in both runs, change of jockey over extended distance may give the horse a chance. ACE BADRAAN has been nicely prepared by Madame Silva and it appears that the horse will be tried, is due for a win. PURSUIT OF FAME who had beaten the last named when they clashed in winters appears a bit backwards in preparation, needs a run. AASHIKARA is in fine fettle and should fight out. MANNAT is a good stayer and goes at low weights.

ACE BADRAAN-ASHIKARA-SCARLET O’HARA.

3. The two got abroads AZZURO and VIJAY’S VAIBHAV had caught the eye with scintillating runs in last outing, the first named is very fluent in works, the Hyd horse is the grand son of the most saught after sire in the world; GALILEO and may be tried, may take it easy, can’t say. FELICIANA who is sister to the black type AWARDING in in good condition and should run for money. REPUBLICAN STAR is from very weak stable but has good bloodlines. STARHUNT from the scheming small time trainer ids forward in tracks.

AZZURO-FELICIOUS-VIJAY VAIBHAV.

4. EMPEROR CRUISE who won the Summer Million finishing on strongly should be the obvious choice since the one who he nabbed in the last 100 yards ;ie, TOP SPOT retains the average rider and may not be able to deliver in a tight situation. The one who has been given an outing and looks very fit in works is PURE ALLURE , may throw a stiff challenge. PENTAGRAM can only hope to place.

EMPEROR CRUISE-TOPSPOT-PURE ALLURE.

5. ONE OF A KIND has been given two easy runs by the work jockey, prefers the mile trip. STIMULATE who lost narrowly to PRICELESS ACE was not very serious in last run , loosing out again, looks ready to win with the allowance rider now. WINNING STORY won a comfortable race and is on the up. CHEDDAR FACE was not pushed much when a faraway 3rd to IRISH SONG , added trip will suit. ALL PROOF is a sprinter, doesn’t give confidence over a mile.

STIMULATE-ONE OF A KIND-WINNING STORY.

6. ARRETE had run close to a good bunch of sprinters in Mumbai and has been neatly tracked for the race, has a good chance if tried. SOUL MAGIC who lost in a close finish due to the in aptitude of a work rider may be favored to win with the rider switch. EQUINE LOVE has good bloodlines but needs a run. FLAME OF PASSION has an outside chance , had run a fast race against speedy customers last time.

ARRETE-SOUL MUSIC-FLAME OF PASSION.

7. BE SAFE should run at very unsuitable odds, stands tall here. The stable mate BOLD MAJESTY is nearest in performance and can challenge over the mile plus distances. The treat if any should eminate from the canny trainer Shroff whose ward TIGER TOPS was travelling easy in the fillies trials, looks in fine fettle and has blood lines for the distance. ALEXANDER MILLS is not bred for such trips, may find it tough .SILVER PHANTOM who is from a top sire may hope to place in grassy conditions.

BE SAFE-TIGER TOPS-BOLD MAJESTY.

8. Having two close relatives as jockeys on competing horses is a dilemma in our country, punters will have to face this situation very often now, eg, what was YASH who is normally very keen on most rides doing on WHIMSICAL yesterday when brother Suraj was stealing a march at the turn. Any way they are riding horses in this handicap race at top weights. AZURITE may run well, has raced with better ones. JINGLE BELLS now goes over distance more suitable to her bloodlines. ALERIO has been given runs and the horse is now fit to fight out, has black type bloodlines and may provide the intriguingly non performing sire of the season a winner.

ALERIO-AZURITE-JINGLE BELLS.

9. A poor bunch of maidens, may be because it is named the CHENNAI CUP or perhaps the race in the aftermath of a big event. Expect an upset as a big possibility. SUPER STRONG has been nicely prepared, has a weak rider for a maiden run. TICKLES has been given a run, is from a speedy mare, the rider returns from who knows where?AMANDA has run closest to the post than others at the finish, may be tried. MILLROSE has shown some forward tracks, has speedy bloodlines. WINDAMERE has run a forward race in winters.

BULLS EYE SHOULD GET THE BTC TROPHY

BANGALORE RACES.

1. WHIMSICAL had come from way back to win over a mile in winters at top weight, has a good handicap chance in this class at the same level as she has been tracking very nicely. GLORIOUS BOY who had finished 2nd in that race has a rookie to ward off the weight margin, has been given an easy outing but has not been tracked. The horse who showed some improvement in last run is AQUA ARIA who may fight out. TANGYANIKA is another flop horse who is vying to improve. The main adversary to the first named is likely to be SUMMER DAWN who has been given runs and is going with a proper rider after preparation.

WHIMSICAL-SUMMER DAWN-AQUA ARIA.

2. A searching look at the card and you see lot of 1400m winners now going with penalties. OPTIMISTIC and IRISH SONG have lesser chance of repeating at this level, CASTLE STUART who has been bought up to run in sprinting mode will try to go all the way in present form, is very attractive in trials. The one worth considering is the maiden BEAUTY IS TRUTH who has the rider returning from leave , may be short of practice.The well bred MY LAKSHMI who has lower weights is maintaining form but has a negative rider switch. DIAMONITE has the top weight but he has raced with higher class and is running with a good rider in the lower class.

CASTLE STUART- BEAUTY IS TRUTH-MY LAKSHMI.

3. The well backed favorite from a good sire, CORIOLIS was beaten a long way from home last time, has to improve to win here. ANAROSA by a top sire has been well prepared and given a run, has the potential to win under the best rider . LAURITA was finishing on late , trip will suit. SMART CONNECTIONS has been given easy runs, has a respectful sire, ideal for longer trips.

ANAROSA-CORIOLIS-SMART CONNECTIONS.

4. HONEYMOON was perhaps given a shabby ride in the million which was contested by outsiders and that makes this one look a suspect in this very competitive field. BARACHHUS who is eye catching in works could not accelerate in the straight and took down loads of money. COLD STREAM from the attractive sire is the one who is bound to fight out and improve. MERION placed in class 3 and that keeps her at top on handicap, but what she beat in winters was an ordinary lot. RUSTIC SUNRISE was a going away winner who is looking very forward. THE GENERAL has been meticulously prepared and can win if fit, lacks a run though, looks classy.

THE GENERAL-COLD STREAM-BARACHHUS.

5. PIPPIN who was finishing fast under a weak rookie last time should be the obvious choice here with the rider switch. APOLLO STAR has chance to place if odds are suiting. CHAMPAKALI is a failed favorite who has initial speed . . FAST LADY won courtesy the rider of VIJAY VAIBHAV who was not interested, the filly looks a bit improved.CADOGAN has form to be involved.

PIPPIN-APOLLO STAR-CADOGAN.

6. MACHIAVELLIANISM has an outside chance to do well over the shorter trip, maintains forward form. ROCK WITH U won very well and is maintaining form. CHARLATAN is coming to hand, has to get a good run to up the handicap a bit. BULLS EYE is at a good handicap to win again, is a top sprinter who will get the extra yards also. GENTLE KNOWLEDGE can throw a good challenge, was a good looser last time. INVICIBLE PRINCE steps into graded league, has low weights.

BULLS EYE-ROCK WITH U-GENTLE KNOWLEDGE.

7. ALCAZABA is a much better horse than I’M DIFFERENT though on handicap they have not much seperating the two, both were good finishers in last respective runs. SUPREME REGIME has been given runs and looks in top fettle in works. FRANKNESS has the best form and low weights are a positive.

SUPREME REGIME-FRANKNESS-ALCAZABA.

8. A cracker of a race to finish the day ‘s card. ABSOLUTE RED who has been unlucky has the good rider repeating, has incurred penalty for close finishes. UNGOOGLABLE who ran close to the first named is working well and also has the rider repeating. ALFONS DE BORJA is winner of just a maiden race and suffers a bit on handicap and rider. NOBLE REWARD was a good 2nd to a good type, the sires produce does well in rainy conditions. SANTA ANA has been another hard luck story for the connnections, was beaten close home in last 3 efforts. KINGSTON TOWN was a runaway winner, though in much inferior company, has pleased a lot in subsequent tracks, has a very stiff penalty.

NATURAL NINE won warding off and has been penalised. WINDSOR PARK is a strange one who had won his maiden race as a 7 year old, has a handicap chance may be fighting out with the try rider, watch backing. TIME MATTERS won after being slow off and has worked very nicely thereafter.

WINDSOR PARK-TIME MATTERS-LA PIPERI.

2. NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE has a weak rider and added distance against. BREEZO was pulled last time and is working attractively, goes over ideal trip. DOMINICIA is a sprinter but may do well as he has raced against better types. BRIGADIER has a try rider after two easy runs.

BREEZO-BRIGADIER-DOMINICIA.

3. SALSA TOUCH who won warming up under a hapless jockey has a stronger rider now but has weights against a repeat. ALL FOR CASH is at an ideal handicap and has a positive rider switch. SCHOLAR was warming up late in last run, has a chance to place again. DANCE OF A GENERAL was given an awkward ride last time, may redeem with the little known rider.

DANCE OF A GENERAL-ALL FOR CASH-SALSA TOUCH.

4. How can the system allow TERI ADAH to run at the same handicap after a distance victory a few days back, so what if the horse was drugged. The logic should be to ban the horse for a specific period of time especially when the trainer is the owner also. The rules are so much against the logic and the poor punter is taken for a ride. The trainer has the field at his mercy to win with his ward or he can quitly ensure a bad run and get away with both options which are now available to him. From other runners PARIS belongs to another master planner who is so god at getting his wards beat when odds are low and win if he gets a bargain. SILVER OAK is the youngster who is working well. COFFEE TIME has been neatly prepared for the first run, may do well. BEAUTIFUL EFFECT may improve being a youngster.

----------------X (COFFEE TIME-PARIS- FOR PLACES)

5. YAKEEN had her fill of races in winters, now runs after a break at top weight, looks in nice condition but needs a run. The intent of the trainer is crooked as he pitches three horses with try riders, DANCING DYNAMITE, MIYARS PRINCESS and AZURE FIRE, coincidentally all won this season with the jockey Chauhan on top. AZURE FIRE was pulled last time and ran a very poor race, may take it easy, other two have speed in them. SHUBHKAMANA was backed strongly but got beaten by an oldie so that blots the book a bit but handicap is still favorable and the rider has done a better job last time on this one. SECRET TREASURE is working well, has lost form.

SHUBHKAMANA-MIYARS PRINCESS-YAKEEN.

6. TUSKAR is moving attractively, has a good chance to redeem. LADS ABILITY has lots of initial speed but lacks fight. ROBINHOOD PANDEY was allowed to gallop only in the straight, has the rider in form. RISING ROMEO is the youngster who bled last time and looks fit from works, needs this run.

The later is tracking speedily and looks well prepared, has age in favor and is due for a win. SAMAJHDAAR has a moderately low performing rider and may not be tried. REAL POTENTIAL is working fine and may compete for places along with WILL STILL. I LOVE YOU who has been tracking impressively for last two months may need this run.

ZAMINDAR-FLIRTING KING- REAL POTENTIAL.

2. The younger gorse DUMA would be the obvious choice of the bookies as he is still on the up and working in fine fettle. But look at the poor record of the trainer with favorites and the fact that the horse had struggled to beat an aged horse in last run, may get beaten now. I would go with the good type BOLD POLICE who is in fine condition and has a better rider.

BOLD POLICE-DUMA.

3. The ordinary VETTEL has been a repeated failure and needs to be ignored for win. SEA RUNNER who is yet to earn anything in 6 years has impressed in mocks. GAYLE’S STORM has been held back , has a handicap chance and despite the aging jockey he can surprise on a level break from the gates. TANDAV has done nothing much so far but he has been meticulously trained for the day.

GAYLE’S STORM-TANDAV-VETTEL

4. CATCHY CHARGER has a positive rider switch after a fine win. DIVINE LOVE won when not backed and the rider could do nothing to stop the warmed up horse, horse is showing out in works thereafter. SOCIETY MUSIC is from a good sire but has a reversal in jockey positioning, lost badly as a favorite last time. Of the balance of runners ignore the horses from a bad sire named CHARMO, these animals just refuse to come to hand. VROOM VROOM can place on experience.
DIVINE LOVE-CATCHY CHARGER-SOCIETY MUSIC.


5. SPINNING CHAKRAM has been a different animal this season, has achieved both wins in a runaway manner and may be favored to win on this account, however he has a very stiff handicap penalty to over come. Youngest ULTIMATE PRINCESS had won a mile in first start in a canter and was finishing on well despite a feeble jockey effort last time, has a good rider to boot now at low weights. Oldie LAD LADY runs in lower class with a try rider. BRILLANTE has fine form, was beaten at the post last time and has been prepared for the day. ABSOLUTE BRAVE is a discard from Mumbai who always came near to winning but still is a maiden, has best handicap to upset.

PEPPER KING has been tracking very nicely and has the best rider for the race. TOUCH OF ROMANCE ran a afir race and has improved a bit. CHARM AND DREAM is a badly beaten favorite, may improve.

DOOLIN was backed a bit in an open race and was kept way back, the horse has tracked nicely now, is bred for a bit of middle trips. HELPING HAND from a sly trainer may be considered for the breeding and preparation, can win on genuine try.

HELPING HAND-DOOLIN-FOURTH DIMENSION.

2. FEET ON FIRE has a god chance since the rider has been in tremendous form and should be the main challenger to the favored ones. RULING PASSIONS has better weights in comparison now to challenge over a sprint. The youngster who is shinning with speedy tracks is rookie ridden BREAKING AWAY. ARYAN WARRIOR and SIMRA may place in the suspect field.

BREAKING AWAY-FEET ON FIRE-RULING PASSIONS.

3. You must see the video in which CLUELESS covered a dozen lengths to finish with a rattle last time, has been tracked well thereafter and may score now. OCEANIC ZONE was a keen finisher who has a jockey switch. LADS GLADIATOR has always won over this distance, last run was fine. MIDNIGHT CRUZE was late to finish on last time, has a try rider at low weights.

CLUELESS-MIDNIGHT CRUZE-LADS GLADIATOR.

4. JERSEY SHORE has a very average trainer otherwise he has age and rider as positives, may score. MR CARPE is always a keen sprinter, may upset. REAL STEEL won and the trainer had no clue, can not consider for repeat in the tough field. WIND WONDER is being denied chance to do well, is a good sprinter who has been wasted because the owner has quit racing. He is looking in peach of condition and can win if odds are good for the trainer to take a punt. CATAMARAN has good initial speed and has the rider who won on this one earlier.

WIND WONDER-JERSEY SHORE-CATAMARAN.

5. AMAZING GRACE has been on the up and has won both starts coming from way behind, has extra distance to travel this time and weight difference must be factored. AGOSTINI was too keen in last run and was beaten on the post, will find the extra distance a bit tough. SNOWDRIFT was the one who was inching up and the present trip is to his liking, can upset. JEREMIAH has been under the trainers attention in morning works after the easy run last time, may be the doosra.

SNOWDRIFT -AMAZING GRACE- AGOSTINI.

6. HACKETT is down a lot in the scales , can surprise. CATTLEYA who had led well in the staright with a weak rookie has a good chance to amend now. FAIR GAME won in weak company and has a god penalty, is tracking fast.GREEN EMERALD who is bred for sprinting has been given enough easy runs, may be tried.

CATTLEYA-FAIR GAME-GREEN EMERALD.

7. The horse who was creeping up along the rails in last run ie, SHAKA ZULU has been braught down with runs since moving to this centre two seasons back and I feel today may be the day it needs to be tried. SHIVALIK FIRE is one paced and has won just once in career, has been extensively tracked, but is conceding weight to others. OPEN PAGE has a keen rookie, is a useful type. SUMMER SUN is a repeated failed favorite who is working pleasingly, is due for a win this season. IGAH IGAH IGAH from a non performing trainer had last won under this very experienced rider in a a runaway manner, was finishing on well in last run.

SHAKA ZULU-SUMMER SUN-SHIVALIK FIRE.

8. The full brother to black type SIACHEN, SALTORO RIDGE had a disappointing winter, belongs to a fading trainer who has lost winning streak this season, horse looks well tracked and may be favored to win. The one who is catching my attention is SUPER FORCE , she is simply very speedy and may just go away from the field, the half sister to PUMBA is from a useful sped inducing north indian sire. SHES’ STUNNING a half sister to speedy SHUBH KAMANA looks impressive in mornings and will run well. AD ASTRA has been working but may be out for an airing.

ICE PICK WILLIE should be favored to win as he is fresh and was a suggestive runner last time who has the rider to score with now. FORTUNATE ONE from a low grade trainer has a useful jockey. HONOURABLE EMPRESS has won twice over this distance and both times under this rookie, looks forward in works. JEWEL LADY is winner of 7 races and is tracking fine, distance may be an issue for the oldie. BERNICIA has been active in mornings and has a try jockey.

VIVA DIVA is down a lot , is a likely upset candidate. SWEET ANGEL is coming to hand, has a work jockey now. CATCH THE EYE is looking to do better than last time, rookie repeats with hope.

VIVA DIVA-STIMULATOR-GAGAN STAR.

3. RAPID ADVANCE was kept far back deliberately last time, the horse had run well along side TOP SPOT and looks a cinch now if hanky panky is eliminated. MYSTIC MUSIC who could not ward off the penalty for the earlier win should run well again as the rookie takes the weight off a bit. SUNDAY CRUZ is the oldie who impressed with a good mock race. BRONZINO has to tackle the gate problem to get on board.

RAPID ADVANCE – MYSTIC MUSIC-SUNDAY CRUZ.

4. A weak lot of racers for maiden’s race. The better breds are FOREST TERN and RUSSIAN LINK. The former is from a dynastic trainer and has a work jockey who gives runs only. RUSSIAN LINK can do well if backed in time, the trainer is doing well on return from suspension. The two horses who have run well ;ie, GOOD FRUIT and KHOSHGEL have try riders and should have a lot of backers.

RUSSIAN LINK-GOOD FRUIT-KHOSHGEL.

5. Of the youngsters the two who impressed in their wins are RED RED ROSE and NIMFEA. The former has lots of early speed and had out paced his rivals in both wins in winters, was kept half interested last time. NIMFEA who is bred for speed was given an over confident ride last time when he moved in wide and from the back pack to take over control close home. REANNA has a good rider but needs a run here. Four year old LOVE OF MY LIFE has been impressive in tracks and is sparingly raced.PANCHECORN ran poorly in last race, has a try rider.

NIMFEA-RED RED ROSE-LOVE OF MY LIFE.

6. SHINNECOCK HILLS ran a much improved race when going down in last race to a younger horse, looks to have an edge in this field , rider is not the same vigorous professional as in earlier seasons. AMAZON BAY is the one who has a positive rider switch after a fair effort. AMIGOS looks much improved since his last easy win. SPANISH FLY is most impressive in tracks and last run was kept out of trouble being a non jobber. DIAMOND QUEST ran pathetically as a favorite, needs to be ignored for now.

SHINNECOCK HILLS-SPANISH FLY-AMAZON BAY.

7. Looks like a race between TRUST ME BOY and IMPERIAL VERSE. The former has been kept under wraps for long and should be backed if he invites support at race time, looks in top fettle in works. The later from fashionable connections appears to fizzle out under pressure, has impressed in gates after a long break. MY LAW with a raw rookie is due to earn some money soon, has shown speedy work lately. DEEP BLUE SEA is unreliable and may not extend over the extra yards at top weight.
TRUST ME BOY-IMPERIAL VERSE-MY LAW.

MYSORE RACES.

1. CATWALK QUEEN won very comfortably and is in terrific form to look for repeat with the rider repeating. LA PIPERI was warming up late and is going to be at it again as the handicap is reversed. GO MAN GO has worked speedily, could not save even place money in last run after a forward run. STONE WARRIOR has low weights after a fair run.SMALL CRUISE has to beat the stiff penalty.

CATWALK QUEEN-LA PIPERI-GO MAN GO.

2. CHELALEE, CLASS ABOVE , THE BACK BENCHER and FRIENDS FOREVER are from the same connections and it appears that the horse to watch should be CLASS ABOVE who ran well in class iv race and has the experienced rider. KALLISTRATE ran a good forward race and has the try rider repeating.

CLASS ABOVE-KALLISTRATE-THE BACK BENCHER.

3. SECOND LADY ran average with a top rider last time, may place. ENSATUS ELEGANCE has not been worked, has run with better ones, has an edge on handicap and rider. HAPPINESS has a handicap chance, has a weak rookie. CONCENTRATION has low weights and a try rider.

ENSATUS ELEGANCE-HAPPINESS-CONCENTRATION.

4. SPINNING CXHAKRAM had won long way from home and was eased up, should be a strong favorite for a repeat. The challenger should be SPIRITUAL BLUE who is showing very forward tracks and has a try rider. LAGOONA has been worked well and can get the trip. PIPES OF PEACE is bred to stay and is tracking fine. BADSHAH has low weights, runs have been disappointing.

SPINNING CHAKRAM-SPIRITUAL BLUE-PIPES OF PEACE.

5. NUALA has not won for long, runs in lower class after a decent effort in better company last time, may upset with the average rider. TIME TO TIME has been tracking for long and very impressively, has a try rider.SARATOGA SPRING is working well , can be involved in first run here. GREENBRO is the oldie who ran a forward race and will run under the stick now also. QUEENS COLOUR has a rookie after a good fighting run.

TIME TO TIME -GREENBRO-NUALA.

6. SPANIARD had warmed up on his own under a helpless jockey to finish on , has capacity to do well again on this surface. SOFAST was given a bad ride to loose as a well backed favorite, may have been a deliberate ploy, has better chance now. COLOR ME is coming down in scales with each run, may do well. ROYAL SHAAN has been impressive in both outings, should be fighting out again at low weights.

SOFAST-SPANIARD-ROYAL SHAAN.

7. ICE SKATER showed a keen run and has the allowance rider repeating. GOLDEN SLIPPER has been given a very easy run, has an allowance rider to improve with. SPEEDY AMIGO is forward in works and has a rider switch. FLYING TRICOLOUR is down a lot in scales and has tracked fine, goes with an improving rider.

ICE SKATER-FLYING TRICOLOUR-SPEEDY AMIGO.

8. CHRONICLE is looking fit, may run an improved race. Another oldie SCHOLAR has trained well and can go all the way. CASH IS KING maintains form but has penalty and has a weaker rider now. ALWAYS ON TOP is one of the most tracked horse in this centre, may show out. BEYOND THANKFUL has form and low weights.

BEYOND THANKFUL-ALWAYS ON TOP-CASH IS KING.
