Sunday, November 30, 2014


MUMBAI RACES

1. BLEND OF ELEGANCE failed badly as a favorite in last run, the full sister to MINT APPROACH appears to be very ordinary, has not been tracked. DIESEL DON has shown good pace in work and has a rider switch. SNOW BLAST from a good performing mare has taken time to be racing fit, can not be considered for win. WILDERNESS was a favorite who was veering out at the gate itself, the rider got him balanced and she got to finish reasonably, may redeem in the weak field. WIND AND RAIN has won twice with this rider, last run was good.

WILDERNESS-WIN

DIESEL DON-PLACE

2. FIRE ENGINE had succumbed to the caprice of the owner who made the horse run so soon in last race, has been rested and is working fit again but has to concede weight in a new course with a longish straight. HONEST PLEASURE can stay, may place. THE GENERAL has raced with youngsters and is winner of only a maiden race, has been promising and may scamper home at low weights in this ordinary field.

THE GENERAL-WIN

HONEST PLEASURE-PLACE.

3. DELIGHTFUL LADY is a well bred who is on the up and last win was achieved comfortably, the sister to TIBERIUS may win again, has pleased in tracks but is conceding weight. PRESENCE was beaten on the post, distance was short then. VIXEN is maintaining form and goes with an allowance rider. BON VIVANT won as a good type, has good bloodlines and may step up at low weights.Despite the horse returning sore the trainer sends him out again in a short time, must be something which does not meet the eye.

BON VIVANT-WIN

DELIGHTFUL LADY-UPSET

PRESENCE-PLACE.

4. DANCING PHOENIX is a top sprinter who has been time and again running against a better DANCER in PRANCES, can give weight and a beating to the speedy field. WAY OUT raced below level against GREEK GOD , may be stagnating, the later is on the up.

DANCING PHOENIX-WIN

GREEK GOD-PLACE.

5. EVIDENCE from the precocious sire has pleased in a couple of tracks may win as is the trend with trainers record, no gates?. PHOENIX TIGER showed out in gates , looks forward in works. CALISSA has impressed in gates.

PHOENIX TIGER-WIN

CALISSA-PLACE

6. SPIDER MAN is tracking well but has reverse handicap. JOSHUA was a surprise revelation even for the connections when he beat a good field last Mumbai season, has been waited with and kept in top fettle, should take a chance with such hopefuls. SOLOMON was finishing on strongly in SPIDERMANs million, has impressed in mocks.

JOSHUA/ SOLOMON –WIN

7. MARIINSKY has not won for about a year, has been shaped up nicely for the event. CIRCLE OF BLISS steps down in distance, looks in fine fettle, may be favored to win as she is receiving weight from first named, horse has a tendency to warm up late, could not step up in time despite an internationally acclaimed rider in Hughes working on the horse a couple of times . KNIGHT OF KE has an imposing record but has not run in black type races so far, has looked in fine nick from works.

MARIINSKY-WIN

KNIGHT OF KE-PLACE.

8. LUCKY PINEAPPLE is sparingly raced, was beaten when hard ridden by a low weighted older horse, has been well trained since then. STRAWBERRY CRUSH may have been sent over extended distances, the present distance appears more suitable. MADE TO MEASURE had flopped under this rider before, doesn’t appear convincing. STAR LIGHTENING was given an awkward ride last time, may run better here
.
LUCKY PINEAPPLE-WIN

ABOVE AND BEYOND has been scrubbed in gates, may improve upon average runs.FORTALEZA was given a pulled ride when she was kept way back and finished fast and wide, has the handicap to win.LIQUID ASSET has been given reducing runs.

FORTALEZA-WIN

LIQUID ASSET -PLACE

2. An interesting race with a lazy sort of non performing trainer having the chance to confuse with two well tracked horses in ARECA WONDER and GARUDA. The former has been catching the eye with smart tracks and the later has been speedy in morning with the foreign rider exercising him regularly. The former is by a very average sire and a modestly performed dam. The later is from the top sire and dam has good bloodlines for progress of the nicely named colt. MARINE ONE is full brother to OCEAN DREAM and half brother to champion sprinter NEFYN, has done well in tracks also. SAPTAJIT also has a chance , works are promising and Narredu returns from self exile from normal racing. SURNATURAL from a weak stale has pleased in tracks, the half brother to RAAGA should run well.

GARUDA-WIN

SURNATURAL/ MARINE ONE –PLACE

3. Another horse from the famous / infamous owner who was a costly purchase and is in lowest class SOUTHERN FANTASY has been a flop show so far,looks good on comparison, may be allowed to run normally. TURF TACTICS has been worked regularly but only the trainer would know what happened in last miserable run as a hot favorite. VIENTO PLATA showed lots of improvement in last run and should win now if the favorite plays traunt. HELLO BOSS will look to place again.

SOUTHERN FANTASY-WIN

VIENTO PLATA -PLACE.

4. RED ADMIRAL is a flat footed type, has a weak rider at top weight.COMMISARRIAT has not shown much zest in tracks, appears to have some problems. YOURE GORGEOUS has the handicap to win, was pulled by this non performing jockey in summers, has not been tracked after that episode. AMANDA was beaten close when a favorite in Mysore , may be tried, field is weak.

AMANDA-WIN

YOURE GORGEOUS-PLACE

5. ACE EMPRESS JESSIE ran fair in owner mates win, has a chance here. ONE OF A KIND who was finishing on in the same race has a slight edge over first named now.IMPERIAL VERSE runs after a break, trainers horses do well when running so. AQUA ARIA has form, may improve, last win was against weaker ones.

ONE OF A KIND-WIN

ACE EMPRESS JESSIE-PLACE.

6. REAL STEEL has been impressive in tracks, has a chance. ICE STORM runs after long and has been prepared but goes for test ride most probably. TOP SPOT is a fine sprinter who should account for the older ones here.VEYRON will try for placing in current form, last win was good.

TOP SPOT-WIN

REAL STEEL/ VEYRON-PLACE.

7. On comparison ALEXANDRA MILLS has a very good chance, has not raced for long. NURAY is a fast one who fizzled out badly in FTS, the canny rider may do well to hold her initially. PURE ALLURE is supect for the mile. RED RED ROSE was blatantly pulled in last run, is a sprinter with turn of foot, has best ratings according to my system and can run a big race, watch. SENORITA EVITA is a sprinting pedigreed, looks in tough conditions here despite the top trainers confidence. SMOKING BELL can be considered for the 2ND in Mysore 1000 G.


ALEXANDRA MILLS-WIN

RED RED ROSE-UPSET

SMOKING BELL-PLACE

8. AZZURO is an improved horse and is looking in fine fettle, should redeem the last failure as a favorite. SECRET PRAYER is another failed favorite who was late to finish on, has form. MANDARIN was not on the job in last run, may upset. SHAFT may run well, looks speedy.

AZZURO-WIN

MANDARIN/SECRET PRAYER-PLACE

9. QUARTER CASK was a forward runner who has scope with the rider repeating. SUEZY UH could not tackle the mile after a forward run, will do well now.FORCE ENSIGN runs after a long break, has a handicap chance, looks like a gamble horse for the trainer.ORIENTAL IMAGE who lost at the post has a jockey switch. ABBA is a speedy one at low weights.

FORCE ENSIGN-WIN

SUEZY OH/ ORIENTAL IMAGE-PLACE

1. ASHWA PREETI, BRAMHAPUTRI and DASH AWAY have shown good speed in mocks and are tracking well. First named is from a freshman sire with the top rider, the second named is from a local sire and it would be interesting to see her performance. Sire of DASH AWAY is ordinary.

SPEED DEMON-WIN

BRAMHAPUTRI-PLACE
.
2. SHANE PUNJAB has form and gets a better rider. OCEANIC STORM was a very impressive winner who looks good for repeat, has tracked attractively. FAST FORWARD was finishing on nicely with top weight, should do well even in this class. GOTHENBERG has low weights and a try rider.

MISS SHAKIRA-WIN

GUTSY BOY-PLACE

4. ROMANTIC MISSION is down in class, has scope to do well now. MASTER CRISTIANO was receiving weight when he beat VISION OF ART over a mile, today the equation is changed, the doubt may be the tendency of the later to be slowly away as she was last time.

VISION OF ART-WIN

ROMANTIC MISSION-PLACE.

5. AAMEERA has impressed in both wins this season, may do well. MISS HEIGL has won over sprints, may not get the trip, ratings are positive. RIVIERA beat a weak field, has the rider for the big occasion. SAVE YOUR MONEY is a sprinting one, may do well even here.

SHES THE BEST—WIN

6. RIOS QUEEN has the try rider repeating after a forward run. SUN FLAG has been very well tracked since last run and should do well now. MISS NORAH was a non jobber last time, earlier 2nd can be built upon. VAIN PERSY has a useful rider after a forward run till the bend. ASHWA SUNEINA has low weights, may place.

RIOS QUEEN-WIN

SUN FLAG/ MISS NORAH –PLACE.

TRANCE FOR MYSTICAL TROPHY

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


MUMBAI RACES


1. Form and handicap suggests a fight between the roses, ie.BURGUNDY ROSE and MATEUS ROSE. The former needs some luck to break the maiden jinx, has been bridesmaid on last four last occasions and the later had a close one in last outing. Then there is SPEED BABY who has run close a number of times.Oldie PLAN B is a front runner who may grace the board.


MATEUS ROSE-WIN

BURGUNDY ROSE/ SPEED BABY-PLACE

2. DEEP DIVER is a speedy one who was beaten at the post in the record time race of IN THE LIME LIGHT, has the averge rider repeating. The one who is undefeated over this distance TAMMY O has to be respected, runs at low weights.RAJSAMMAN has a chance to run close.

TAMMY O-WIN

DEEP DIVER-PLACE.

3. FALCON has been working well but does not appeal at top weight. TRANCE is the first ride for the foreign rider and has been tracked, the horse has not been reliable, courtesy the trainer, was easily beaten by MOUNTBATTEN last season when favored, however she had finished on to go past SHEER CLASS in the final furlong of Indian 1000G, has a slight edge. SHEER CLASS is on the up and has been tracked , low weights are in favor.

TRANCE-WIN/PLACE

4. GRENADINE had moved in fast to go past ATHENS when the race heated up last season in STRAWBERRY CRUSHs race, is definitely in with a chance even at top weight.

GRENADINE-WIN

ATHENS/ AL SHAMSHHER –PLACE.

5. SPADES is moving attractively and ideal distance to run. BETHPAGE was ridden by a mediocre rider and yet finished full of steam in last race, has the sire to consider.

BETHPAGE-WIN

SAVAGE BEAUTY / ULTIMATE GLORY-PLACE.

6. ORIENTAL ROCKY has been very good finisher except when he was the favorite, needs a good ride from the weak jockey. QUICK FIRE is a speedy one, may be tried. MINE FOREVER has shown speedy tracks but disappointed in last mock when she veered out, is a doubtful case. NATALIAN EXPRESS won pleasantly for the connections and maintains form.ZENOFIC has low weights, is working well.

ZENOFIC-WIN

ORIENTAL ROCKY-PLACE.

7. PRETTY IN PATPONG is down in scales, had braught the field homewards in last race, can go all the way.

1. SHIVALIK GANGA ran a forward race in maidens event and is nicely bred , has excelled in latest work and should shoot home. VETTEL from a cunning trainer has twice failed as favorite, has been consistently tracked for long. WINNIND DESIRE has come down a lot, the winner of 3 races has a rookie who can get on board. WINDSOR PARK is looking good in tracks, appears to be actually owned by the rider who works and rides him.KEEP SECRET has not shown any sparkle in any of his runs, has been working well.HEART OF SUCCESS has low weights.

SHIVALIK GANGA-WIN

WINNING DESIRE –WINDSOR PARK-PLACE

2. GUAPO has been given a run and may be tried over the mile, handicap is stiff. NATURAL NINE may find the penalty and extra yards as incumbent for repeat. LA PIPERI has the ideal handicap to win, has worked well but there is a question mark over intent as the pseudo trainer is only a front for the owner cum trainer who is suspended. CATWALK QUEEN had been ridden out in last effort, why is he being sent over extra yards which may not suit her style, has a slight handicap chance..SUPREME STRENGH is now receiving weight here.

CATWALK QUEEN-WIN

NATURAL NINE-PLACE.

LA PIPERI-UPSET

3. GO MAN GO had stepped up nicely in the straight to win comfortably, has been tracked but the average rider does not appeal for repeat. TIME TO TIME is consistently run over this trip and has been well tracked, should be trying. HALLELUJAH has landed with the cunning trainer, has the good breeding etc, can win on a sincere effort. JAZZBYTHEBAY is an in and out runner but he wins in sprints only. FRIENDS FOREVER who flashed a late 2rd has a handicap chance, is yet to win, may have a say if favorite is out for a lark.

FRIENDS FOREVER –WIN/PLACE

TIME TO TIME=PLACE

4. SPANIARD and SECRET MISSILE had both planted in their last appearances respectively, that makes it difficult to back any of them now, the first named has a slight edge on ROYAL SHAAN , he was full of running last week and has showed out in gates. FLASH TIME and SPINNING CHAKRAM both have been worked easy, both ran poor in last runs and will they be tried?

ROYAL SHAAN-WIN

SPINNING CHAKRAM- PLACE.

5. NO BOUNDRIES was apparently pulled in last run, had finished fighting 2nd to ROYAL SHAAN earlier, the rider is repeating. CASH IS KING is with the best fitness here, has good form, will run for money. SOCIETY MUSIC looks to repeat, distance may be an issue. NO DOUBT goes over ideal distance, has been tracked.

ROCKETEER/ DANCE OF A GENERAL-PLACE

7. Both GELGINITE and MASTER OF THE ROLLS had won their maiden run impressively and both run after a gap, the preparation has been nice in both the cases and they would be doing well. ABBAS DREAMS goes over a bit extra yards, may do well as handicap is suitable.CHANDINI has a weak rookie after a soft ride last time. ROYAL PRODIGY and DELTA DELIGHT go over ideal distance, the later had led in and fizzled out in the straight.

GELGINITE-WIN

MASTER OF THE ROLLS-DELTA DELIGHT-PLACE

MAISHA STANDS OUT FOR MORVI TROPHY

MUMBAI RACES

1. DIVINE WISH has placed in her 2nd outing and later failed badly under Sandesh, recent mock was a good effort, may romp home in this weak field. LEONITE has the benefit of 4 mocks, last one she was kept handy. ASHWA YODHAA is the oldie who has won once and goes at low weights.

DIVINE WISH-LEONITE.

2. COSTA DEL SOL has speedy blooodlines but has been openly tracked only once. GOLDEN BELLE is the failed favorite who has tracked fast, was easily overtaken. JEENA looks much improved since last outing. MOUNT RUSHMORE is a well bred got abroad who has come to hand early, has been given a couple of gates and is impressive in preparation. SPIRIRTED TOUCH was finishing on well, may improve.

MOUNT RUSHMORE-GOLDEN BELLE.

3. It will be too embarrassing for connections if MAISHA , if Indian 1000 Guineas hopeful does not win comfortably against these runners.

MAISHA

4. AL SHAMSHEER is the common horse for comparison, he beat FLEETWOOD MAC, ZABISCO, DIXIE DELIGHT and DOUBLE OR QUITS in last couple of months. Out of these the one who impressed a lot was ZABISCO, he has been given a couple of impressive mocks and has the rider for the job, but a big negative is the fact that he concedes weight over a trip. BURLESQUE a costly filly from a black type mare and from the top stables was a faraway 2nd may be favored to win , latest work was fast and impressive.The one who may also come into contention is REPLICA who was tracking fine last season and is bred for such a trip.

BURLESQUE-ZABISCO—REPLICA.

5. DYNAMO and MYKONOS are very closely handicapped if you compare the runs against RIO of the two, the former has a slight edge, but looks jaded in works. MINT APPROACH who was a good 2nd to GREEK GOD had barely managed to hold MYKONOS while taking chunk of weight, the horse is looking very forward in works.The later has a turn of foot and may just scrape through if ridden in check till the boil.

MYKONOS-MINT APPROACH.

6. WAR COMMAND had led upto the home turn and fizzled out in Pune Derby, is actually bred for sprints, looks in fine nick. ROYAL PASSION can run a good race, has tracked fine. YOUR ROYAL MAJESTY could not accelerate against a good finisher in POLYDENCES, has ltd chance now. The later may step up at these weights.

WAR COMMAND-POLYDENCES-ROYAL PASSION.

7. CONGRESSIONAL is a good type from the last crop of Indias most famous sire, has maintained form. TOP COMMANDER has been made to run over wrong distances, may do better over the ideal mile. SHIVALIK SHOWERS is a well bred who excelled in last win and is on the up.RULE DOWN UNDER was a good finisher in last run but has top weight. The bottom weighted TROPA BELLA is speedy, can trouble if she stays the trip, her dam was winner over longer trips.SPEED KING has a weak handicap.

SHIVALIK SHOWERS-CONGRESSIONAL-RULE DOWN UNDER.

8. BEYOND HORIZONS showed improvement with runs at Pune, can win here. BROWN DYNAMITE who had finished 3rd to first named has a weak rookie and can upset, has been tracked.TEMPEST who is still a maiden has an ideal handicap to win.

TEMPEST-BEYOND HORIZONS.

GOODWILL WARRIOR has been given a run, horse had worked well. RAPID BOLT is well bred who has chance to upset.WESTERN LADY can improve upon last run.

STYLE N GRACE-RAPID BOLT-GOODWILL WARRIOR.

2. GLITTERING had won a maidens sprint stylishly in summers, has tracked attractively. ROYAL DEFENCE should start racing seriously, has the foreign rider for a test ride.HIDDEN DEAL has the benefit of an easy run. LA MELL is showing out in gates, is from a speedy mare

GOOD FRUIT-APOLLO STAR-STIMULATOR.

5. ACE BADRAAN has been nicely prepared and will run well but now he is conceding much weight to MAANAT whom he beat in summers. The later has been working pleasingly and also has an edge over AASHIKARAA as per the last time they raced together. PASSING FULCRUM and THE ARTIST from Attaolhis yard have tracked well and the first named appears to be in top fettle and has the top rider.

PASSING FULCRUM -MANNAT-AASHIKARA.

6. NESTO is a good type who has potential, impressed in mock race at Mysore, should win if the rider is worth his salt. SPEED HAWK maintains Mysore form, races against better ones here. SUPER QUEEN has potential, tracks are impressive. ATMOS has been given a mock, steps up in distance. MILLROSE is showing out in works and will fight out.

NESTO-MILLROSE-ATMOS.

7. PURSUIT OF FAME is an ordinary bred who has excelled in satying races, has been improving with runs and he is the one to trouble all here irrespective of the handicap. On age and performance SPREADEAGLE stands out and should be the favorite for the race. SCARLET O HARA has a canny rider at low weights, can be the doosra for the owner.

SPREADEAGLE-SCRLET O HARA.

8. ARCHDUCHESS is working nicely , is a hesitant and unreliable filly. SALZBURG packed up too soon, can not judge him from the bad run when backed. CHAMPAKALI is working well. JACKIE OH has been nicely prepared, runs after a long time. CROWN EMPEROR is from a trainer known for sleeping over his wards for long. STROMBOLITE has little chance of being trying, the trainer is a shadow figure for the actual tainted Ghatala to return.

CHAMPAKALI-JACKIE OH-ARCHDUCHESS.

9. AZZURO is looking fine in works, runs after a break. SPANISH MOON may excite with a forward run, Asgar has had his yearly win today. RAPID ADVANCE got beaten when half money on, have your own say on such a horse. ARTHURIAN is working nicely, should be redeeming last failure.

CACTUS CASH FOR SIR CHINOY TROPHY

Thursday, November 20, 2014


MUMBAI FIRST DAY RACES

1. A puzzling opening race with no horse having any edge. BONOBO has won twice over staying distances but has poor form and a weak rider at top weight. MARCOS has done nothing so far, has only the sire for consideration. SUNTAN BEAUTY is pure sprinter and CUMBRE VIEJA has never placed. Low weight and the fact that she was leading well up in last run over this distance may provide a chance to the last named.

CUMBRE VIEJA-BONOBO.

2. I rarely consider a bleeder to win in next outing and here the black type THE MYTH from the unreliable stables has been tracked just once since she broke a blood vessel. The low weighted CACTUS CASH should utilise the oppOrtunity to run away.

CACTUS CASH.

3. The concept of Doosras has become much prevalent in India. Here WITHOUT FEAR has lost close two times and has a speedy style of racing but the trainer has opted for the top rider to ride on a weakly bred ROYAL SAPPHIRE who lost to an ordinary BLUE FLAME near the post, however the choice has to be in favor of the strong rider. STARRIANO may place at low weights, has been tracked recently.

ROYAL SAPPHIRE-WITHOUT FEAR.

4. SAIL PAST has been tracking well after reaching here, has speedy bloodlines. BON VIVANT had impressed in mock race, has tracked well and is well bred, should do well. The half brother to the celebrated NEFYN , OCEAN DREAM who ran a good 2nd should finally deliver,has improved.

OCEAN DREAM-BON VIVANT.

5. AINRA is a good sprinter and can have her say against youngsters, last effort was good. EGYPTIANA left a good impression with last comfortable win, has a weaker ride and has to tackle the long straight.BLUE BAY is speedy with a good rider. LADY BIRD has raced with good types and is working well, should utilise the low weights. ARTISTE is a well bred who has tendency to veer out, change of centre may help.

ARTISTE-LADYBIRD-EGYPTIANA.

6. PEPITO has showed out in works and maintains form, is now conceding weight to SIMPLY SWEET whom he beat in maiden race. The later is shining in morning works.FORGOTTEN VOICE appears to have recovered from injury, has been trained well.FIBONACCI SEQUENCE has hardly been worked. ROYAL CLASSIC is looking speedy in preparation, impressed in mocks.

SIMPLY SWEET-ROYAL CLASSIC-PEPITO.

7. DARK WILLIAM has a rider switch, faces youngsters at top weight. MATEUS ROSE is working well, may improve. STATESQUE lost on the post , has shown good speed in works. ENGLISH LASS has trained on, appears ordinary one from the speedy sire.

ABSOLUTE BRAVE FOR CHINNAPPA MEMORIAL TROPHY

Wednesday, November 19, 2014


MYSORE RACES.

1. ZIPPING has been regularly tracked, runs have been below par. STONE WARRIOR has finished on nicely twice last season, the placement of weak jockey is confusing. MEMORABLE MOMENT had fizzled out after leading well, has a better rider now. ROSIES DREAM is winner of 3 races and has a handicap chance, has been shown gates. JUMP IN THE RED is impressive in works last run was an indicative one. SMALL CRUISE is at low weights, has been given a run. PROST has a useful jockey at low weights.

SMALL CRUISE-ROSIES DREAM-JUMP IN THE RED

2. A race dominated by runners from Samar Singh family trainees. SIDDHANI has been impressive in training and has the better rider. The one who looks forward is RED MAGNUM . Nothing much to discuss about pedigrees in this lot. From the freshman sires point of view ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET has much hype but his wards are not showing out much, his son EVANDER is still to get fit. VARENAR and WEST VIRGINIA look ordinary types and this centre has a number of their wards, none are outstanding in work so far.

RED MAGNUM-SIDDHANI-MIDNIGHT BREEZE.

3. JOTA and NERON are most unreliable horses who are moody and can not be trusted to deliver .SUNLINE was bet upon last time but disappointed, deserves another chance. ZAMINDAR is one paced but is working very well. CATERINA has come down a lot, may deliver. COME ON GIN GIN was a late finisher, has age on side. TANDAV is down at low weights and working impressively.

CATERINA-ZAMINDAR -COME ON GIN GIN.

4. MR CARPE is a speedy one who is eye catching in tracks. Stable mate CLASS IS CLASS is the doosra from the stable who has a handicap chance.

3. The win of POLISHED CHROME at Pune had heralded the entry of another good sire into our country . ARAZAN appears to be precocious and we shall have to wait and see how the produce fares over mile and more. The present race appears to be a straight contest between two fillies from this sire. AGELESS is very fast and has excelled in gates, gets the best rider to shoot away from inner draw. However racing has been made all the more inconsistent and quizical by the DOOSRA concept which is very much accepted part and parcel in our racing centres as authorities are hand and glove with their lopsided rules. ZAHRAZAN , younger sister to SPEED KING and from a well bred AGA KHAN mare has looked to be equally forward and gets a well established rider, ask the trainer Dallas and he will say both my wards are tryers and will run a good race, hence the decision has to be yours.The champion trainers EVIDENCE has been given just one easy track, yet has to be respected for the bloodlines and indoor training.
