SEASON 2015-16 LAST DAY RACES.

1. BLACK PEPPER is from a speedy dam line, last run was suspicious as the experienced rider kept the horse wide while moving homewards, nobody bothers to question these western india riders who are everyday involved in giving botched up rides here.ASHWA GRACE may place if given a genuine ride, needs more ground for effective try.ASMI has credentials, was beaten on the post by TAKE OVER TARGET.KICKAPOO is a much better horse than MULLRINA according to me but both have been done in by dubious attempts, the later has the stable rider after fine tracks, the former ran a wretched race just recently.

OOTY RACES

Since racing season is about to come to an end with last racing in Delhi on 29 th one can have a look at Ooty Races. I was fortunate enough to spend about a year at Wellington in 1985 , an Army cantonment 20 odd kms short of Udhagamandalam popularly known as Oooty since British colonial days. The racing at the hill centre is unique as the race course has a funny shape with one hair pin bend at about 600m and the straight is just about 200m which suits short bursts of speed and older horses can perform as the bends give some breath catching time. This race course was perhaps the first one which allowed special stands for families and even small children and usually there was more of a picnic environment since many tourists would venture in for the sake of fun and excitement .Racing per se is not so serious at the centre as most horses belonging to small trainers who could not win at main Chennai centre were waited with to win at good odds and that trend has continued and even today form and handicap will often take a toss .I was still a novice at that time and being young would take hunch bets at long odds and till date I have not bettered the ones taken on TRIUMVIRATE and THE KING. If I am not wrong then CHAITANYA RATHAM and RED JUSTICE were the top contenders for the youngsters plum races, the former went on to win many races for the late trainer J Dhariwal.Racing here should be taken more for fun value and not for big punts as such a venture may hurt people like Mr RAM CHANDER .



1 PHOENIX FLIGHT may not perform over the staying trip. ONE’S OWN has comfortably beaten TAP IT RICH over a distance comfortably at Chennai last season and is well placed on scales but lacks form.

TAP IT RICH (2)-WIN

4. CUSTODIAN has been given a run. FANTASTIC STRIKE has run on board in last run, should be trying to do better today.SPLENDID LIGHT won well and goes over ideal distance, penalty looks tough. PRIDE OF THE HILLS has low weights , the oldie has a chance.

FANTASTIC STRIKE(2)-WIN

SPLENDID LIGHT(3)/PRIDE OF THE HILLS(9)-PLACE.

5. GOLDEN MILLENIUM has tracked nicely and given easy gates, rider has a fine chance here. GIVE ME GOLD was a notable winner who is bound to look for repeat.STRIKE THE STARS ran a good 2nd in older age group, rider repeats.SCENT OF FLOWER has been shown a mock, is well worked, may upset.

Distrubing trend of hot favorites not performing at the main centre is evident, one always argues that Mumbai is the only place where handicap is often the principle factor, but end days of the season suggests that the bookies are taking over, avoid heavily backed horses like PHILADELPPHIA, VISION OF ROMANCE and ROYAL ECCLAIR, all ran as per scheme.

MASTER FADERER FOR GOLDEN DAGGER PLATE

Tuesday, April 19, 2016


DELHI RACES.

1. Logically ROOP MANTRA should win based on last run but then she belongs to the trainer well known for not being a straight forward person. ASMI has a rider switch and would perhaps be favored to win by the bookies for the same. MR CHAIRMAN is in with some chance to improve upon last run.ZAMARIAH has a work jockey.

ROOP MANTRA(1)-WIN

ASMI(2)-PLACE

2. The script is same even in this race with top two contenders being from the same owner. Handicap wise ASHWA PARBAL has a tough job to repeat and personally i feel that the rider is playing around with AMASTER FADERER who should score now . Otherwise TATANKA is a far superior animal than his rating.

MASTER FADERER(4)-WIN

ASHWA PRABAL (3)-PLACE.

3. ROYAL COUNTY STAR should struggle at this level, has age on side though but handicap is tough.LION HEARED LADY is down in scales, can upset. COSMIC FILED and GUCCI WATER have both showed out in mock races, should be the main contestants.

COSMIC FIELD(5)-WIN

GUCCI WATER(6)-PLACE.

4. ZAROON has come to hand with last finish and has a fine switch of jockey. MISS DUNCAN was given an atrocious ride last time, may not be tried even now.

ZAROON (1)-WIN

BIG NEWS(5)/FIRE FLY(8)-PLACE.

5. As suggested last time also YALAMLAM should not win at top weight, is an aged one who finds the bit extra hard to produce. MASTER VANPERISE maintains form, has impressed in mock. Trainer should opt for trying TARANTINO again, the horse was shaping to win under this raw rider last time.INAZUMA has a weak rookie.

MASTER VANPERISE(4)-WIN

TARANTINO(7)/YALAMLAM(1)-PLACE.

6. ASHWA GUNJAN runs again with hope. TEZ RAFTAR ran a fair 2nd and will be tried under the rookie. DAZZLING CLASS is down in scales. CHERAMI who led well has a chance to upset.MARNI MOTO has a rider for a try.

GO MY GIRL(5)-WIN

MISS CINDRELLA(1)-PLACE.

4. One trainer has 4 entries and that provides for manipulation as rest of the field is for the taking. He has SOLID GOLD and SMILE OF LOVE who are working well and are in forward condition. The latter is my choice since she is a much better bred and the dam was a speedy winner of 5 sprints, she ran a very catchy mock lately. ATKIN’S GOLD had no pace in last run. DANCES AWAY is a nice bred but has a weak rookie.

SMILE OF LOVE(9)-WIN

SOLID GOLD(4)/DANCES AWAY(6)-PLACE.

5. WHIFF OF GOLD has lost form but has a chance to place in this set up if given a try run.IMPRESSIONIST is a failed favorite and has a good chance to redeem, is tracking well. SANG BLEU is down in scales and has a try rider.

STAR ONE has been given runs, has the top rider for the winning owner/trainer combination. NEPTUNE’S OCEAN is down a lot in ratings with easy runs, may be tried.
