SPONGE BOB is from a WORLD famous tail line(THONG-PUMP) from breeding point of view, the mare gave many winners in Germany and this one has been nicely prepared by the trainer , ignore winter run. SECRET PURSUIT has been tracking well with yesterdays winners in SPORTING PLEASURE and HALL OF FAMER, the filly ran a fine 2nd to SHERYL who won again, I give her a fair chance today as she is a well bred from dam side. SERENDINE is a nice bred, may be tried at long odds. TAMARA has been impressive in tracks, the rider is searching for a win.

SECRET PURSUIT(10)-WIN

TAMARA(12)/ SPONGE BOB(7)-PLACE.

6. EMIDIO has run a futile chase in last run, has age in favor.SALADIN ran a fair race under the raw rookie, has impressed in tracks. GHOONJ has not been tried, continues to work well. BACK IN A FLASH is a decent bred who showed out with a speedy display, is in fine form. HAVELOCK PRINCESS can be considered for fine 3rd to ARVAK when she finished well.

HAVELOCK PRINCESS(9)-WIN

BACK IN A FLASH(8)/SALADIN(2)-PLACE.

7. BOLD MARCH can run an improved race. SERJEANT AT ARMS will be the hot favorite for the manner in which he came up and demolished the field in Colts Championship, extra 400 m have to be factored since all the produce of the dam were most comfortable over a mile. SUPREME GENERAL is the most improved horse who was rushed too early by the rider and was beaten , a waiting race may be the answer, the horse is looking far improved since that run. WHOMAKESTHERULES could not settle well in last run, may rebound.ICE GLACIER won well over a staying trip, should try to outsmart the field.

SUPREME GENERAL(7)-WIN

SERJEANT AT ARMS(5)/ WHO MAKES THE RULES(8)-PLACE.

8. RAKSHITA ran a fine 2nd and is notable in tracks. BRAVE MINSTREL had run a good 2nd to TARINI, can win on sincere try, ignore last run. LORD DARLINGTON is speedy but has a tendency to slow down, has a fair chance. INTREPID WARRIOR had flopped badly as a favorite. PERFECT GOLDEN ERA is tracking nicely.

LORD DARLINGTON(5)-WIN

BRAVE MINSTREL(3)/RAKSHITA(2)-PLACE.

9. ARABELLE was given a questionable ride as a hot favorite, may rebound as the tracks are indicative. PALISADE’S PARK has not been tried here, can surprise. ROYAL SCEPTRE won well and has a better rider today. ONLY PRINCESS has low weights.

BANGALORE RACES



1. LIGHTENING STRIKES is from a decent mare but has not raced well this season, lacks normal preparation from this stable. See the company in which LIGHTENING ATTACK has run and may be you will be convinced about the chances today in this weak field, has a try rider also.NAZAILLA has tracked fine, may or may not be tried in this location. BHARAT QUEEN is speedy and has been tracked. ROARING THUNDER from a useless sire was rightly beaten as a favorite in last run, should meet a similar fate again.

LIGHTNING ATTACK(4)-WIN

ROARING THUNDER(9)/LIGHTENING STRIKES(2)-PLACE.

2. J GATSBY has changed trainer and has not been tracked this season. SHINNING MAGIC had won easily last year under this rider over a sprint, distance is much more now, has shown out in track. HONOUR is shinning in tracks and was seen finishing on last time, is due to strike. VICIOUS CIRCLE was the betting rage of the season and had warmed up in last furlong to win easily, has been tracked recently.

HONOUR(4)-WIN

SHINING MAGIC(3)/VICIOUS CIRCLE(8)-PLACE

3. ABOVE THE REST is the youngster who is tracking well but has a weak rider at top weight.JUST FABULOUS finished on strongly under this rider, will fight out. ROCKET MAN is a well bred half brother to STAR MARQUESS who has come to hand with a good last run under a weak rider, belongs to a trainer who knows how to back his winners well, watch for support. ONLY PRINCE has not raced as per his high pedigree, has been worked. SEA DOVE was pulled in last run, earlier she was shaping as a winner when nabbed over a mile, has low weights.

ROCKET MAN (4)-WIN

SEA DOVE (12)/ JUST FABULOUS (3)-PLACE.
.


4. ASHWA RAFTAAR ran a fine 3rd to SYDNEY HARBOUR while conceding weight. TOP STRIKER was a lead runner in WHOMAKESTHERULES win, has been maintaining some catchy and fast tracks since, is from a not so hot sire and rider is suspect. AMBER CROWN looks much improved since last win. SHIELD OF ACHILLES won well recently but beat an ordinary bunch. SPORTING PLEASURE is from a non raced mare, latest tracks indicate much change, will run a fighting race. JUSTICE ANGEL pleased in latest works, last run needs to be ignored.

JUSTICE ANGEL(9)-WIN

SPORTING PLEASURE(8)/ASHWA RAFTAAR(1)-PLACE.

5. ALEXANDRITE has potential but is being waited with, was kept far too back in both outings. THOMAS MORE led in well and flopped last time, was a fine runner in GABINO'S race earlier.AVANT GARDE races after long, has changed trainer and is looking in fine fettle, looks good on runs with top horses, and may deliver even under the weak rider. IN THE SUNRISE is a late racer and is bound to be in hunt to repeat at low weights, tracks are very impressive.

AVANT GARDE(7)-WIN

ALEXANDRITE(4)/IN THE SUNRISE(10)-PLACE.



6. BOLD COMMAND was beaten by an older horse in last run, has been given a couple of mocks to sharpen him up, may run well under the ordinary rider. ACE BUCEPHALUS is tracking impressively. SATELLITE was ambitiously backed in last run when distance was too short, had tried to switch gears but definitely he is not a sprinter, can redeem today. STARLET looks a much improved horse this season and has low weights, can trouble the favorite if she does not bleed again.

SATTELITE(11)-WIN

BOLD COMMAND(3)/ STARLET(14)-PLACE.

7. ASHWA ASHOKA has been very nicely prepared and shows the intent of the good trainer. TOROROSSO runs first time, the track reporters are already predicting him as a winner, to me he has to prove in a race run as the breeding is not much to talk about, the dam had won a mile race , expecting him to win over this distance in maiden run may be very optimistic. TOWERING HEIGHTS will like the distance, was finishing on. ADULATION was not tried last time by this rider. HALL OF FAMER caught the eye for a second in the straight and then veered out, has been very nicely prepared for the million event. SERENA BALLERINA has been a frustrating filly for the followers, has been backed heavily to incur losses twice, ran an improved race in Fillies Championship.

SERENA BALLERINA(11)-WIN

HALL OF FAMER(10)/ASHWA ASHOKA(1)-PLACE.

8. BABUSHKA won easily and has maintained form.GOLDEN DIAMOND is a gamble horse can run a fighting race if backed at ring time. Dont expect the last outing winner LOVELY DANCER to win again, has tough opponents. FIRING LINE has been given a run , tracks are pleasing.Can not say much about BALIAN who has been ridden easy for last one year, the sparingly horse is a reasonable bred with a try rider now.

BABUSHKA(1)-WIN

FIRING LINE(6)/BALIAN(6)-PLACE.

MYSORE RACES



1. Distance is an issue in this race as most horses have not been exposed to staying trip. GRACE AND GLORY has won at this level under this rider before, has come down in class after last runs. BORN FOR STAKES has been excelling in current season, may get more stakes/ moola with the good rider.INVINCIBLE WISH is a failed favorite from earlier run, has age on side. IRELAND has been subjected to heavy preparation, may win under the rogue rider or come last difficult to judge as intent is always in doubt for dubious people's horses.

INVINCIBLE WISH(5)-WIN

BORN FOR STAKES(4)-PLACE

2. ROLAND was a false favorite and ran as such, has been tracked. ARETES ran on board and has the rider repeating. WESTERN ALLIANCE placed for first time, may be tried under the rookie,has age on side.BELLE ETOILE is tracking fast, needs more distance. GREEN EMERALD was kept handy and off pace in both outings, can strike in this suspect field .BADSHA is speedy, has a chance to be in money.

GREEN EMERALD(8)-WIN

WESTERN ALLIANCE(2)/ARETES(3)-PLACE.

3. ABSOLUTE BRAVE has anew stable, apparently the owner felt cheated by the last trainer in last upset win. CASTLE KING goes over ideal trip. GRAND SUCCESS is going to keep the favorite interested in current form,age has to be ignored at this centre. MOMOTORO won easily and should ideally repeat, a weaker jockey may cause some concern.

MOMOTORO(7)-WIN

GRAND SUCCESS(4)-PLACE.


4. BOLD POLICE could not carry weight in last run, has an allowance rider today.SEE THE STORM just about to hold on , has severe penalty now. GELGINITE has a chance to repeat, needs a good ride from the allowance rider who has often let down on favorites. VENI VIDI VICI ran a good 2nd and is bound to be in the fray, distance is more today. PASSING FULCRUM has been given a run after good tracks, has a rider switch also, is down a lot in scales.

BOLD POLICE(1)-WIN

GELGINITE(4)/ VENI VIDI VICI(8)-PLACE.

5. KING OF THE WORLD is from a top sire and is the local hopeful, was given a half hearted ride in last labored win, will run the Bangalorians close, weights are a big negative . RAFA is ordinarily bred from a weak trainer, has not raced for some time now. GOOD FORTUNE ran a fighting 2nd and can race well. SMART N NOBLE comes into reckoning based on a close 2nd to a good type in ATTORNEY GENERAL.

SMART N NOBLE(8)-WIN

GOOD FORTUNE(5)-PLACE.

6. SIDDHANI has age on side , has been in form and rider repeats. JOEY has not been tracked at all, has a good jockey. SKYFULLOFSTARS has been given a run after some fine tracks. LAKE EMERALD is speedy, has low weights.

SKYFULLOFSTARS(9)-WIN

SIDDHANI(3)/LAKE EMERALD(11)-PLACE.

7. KIR ROYALE has won under this rider at this level before, may be tried today. MALKIA has a more sincere rider today, last run was a close one. OUTER SPACE won with the hapless rookie looking back in surprise but it may not be prudent to take a bet on such combination again as the horse is bound to be favored by the bookies for the effortless win in lover class, can get beaten now. ICE BROWN has not won for long, has a strong rider today. CONCENTRATION could not be ridden well last time and veered out at a crucial juncture, has a handicap chance.

ICE BROWN(8)-WIN

DESERT GOD FOR MAHARAJA CUP

BANGALORE RACES


In many years of racing we come across the topic of race fixing and there are many who believe that it is very difficult to arrange such a fix . Yesterday perhaps offers us an example of such an arrangement when RED GALIEO was backed down by all and sundry based on many factors including the betting side grapevine that the owner has gone in for a big punt on the good thing to recover his losses from DIAMOND GREEN'S race and the horse had literally nothing to beat. Now have a look at the connections of the horse which won, it is trained by a person who has horse under him from the favorite RED GALILEO's owner and who has helped him in many ways to become a class I trainer. SIDE WINDER would have very few takers after a deplorable run when backed heavily last time. Also have a look at the riders, SIDE WINDER had lost under A IMRAN in race 97, who incidentally ensured a similar ride on RED GALILEO, even the worst rookies wouldn't hassle the horse the way he did in early stage of the race, obviously the game plan worked., the horse finished 14 lengths behind, that is the way cookie crumbles often in racing.


1. JACK OF HEARTS is from a weak sire, has been tracked after last run, may be tried for places. KAMAAL has been worked after last positioning on board, has some potential.SHIELD OF ACHILLES is a top bred half brother to black type STAR PRESENTATION, ignore run at ooty in tough company, last track was a good one.MASADA is speedy, owner had a good winner yesterday. NINON is working nicely.

SHIELD OF ACHILLES(5)-WIN

MASADA(7)/JACK OF HEARTS(3)-PLACE.


2. ONE TO NOTE ran below level in last run, has potential to do well in the age group race. GO GREEN may be tried, trainer is till in sleep mode. TREE LOUNGE has run pathetically last time, may improve under John. ACTIVE GREY had run an encouraging 2nd to VICIOUS CIRCLE, can win if backed.

ACTIVE GREY(6)-WIN

ONE TO NOTE(3)/GO GREEN (4)-PLACE.

3. THE JAGUAR has early speed but is suspect over the last furlong, has not won for long. SUDHA was slow off yet passed the front running GOAT quite easily in last run. ELEGANT STAR has bad gate habits, can upset if he jumps level.

SUDHA(3)-WIN

ELEGANT STAR (7)/THE JAGUAR(1)-PLACE.


4. BLUE BLAZER is speedy but has top weight. PROSPERENE is from the classic grand dam and has been shinning in tracks given by this rider. SPLENDID SPLASHER posted an all the way victory under a work jockey, has a top rider now. TIMES TIME has been putting up fine displays in tracks, sire is ordianry.SHERYL left a good impression in last win, can repeat .

SHERYL(5)-WIN

PROSPERENE(2)/SPLENDID SPLASHER(3)-PLACE

5. Clash of the Champions of consecutive years Indian Derby winners in BE SAFE and DESERT GOD. The former blotted his record by loosing last time to a rejuvinated older horse and the later won his last start when doubts over fitness were being talked about. AZZURO who was finishing on has some chance over extra distance today.BOOKER JONES is always running into money though he will have doubts over this staying trip.

DESERT GOD(2)-WIN

BE SAFE(1)/ AZZURO(4)-PLACE

6. TRAPEZOID has won all his 4 races when at longer odds. NEW PRINCE is speedy and ran a forward race under a work jockey, has a weak field to beat now. AMAZING REDD ran a fair 2nd, has fine form. MILLROSE won both races convincingly but has a weaker rider today.

NEW PRINCE(6)-WIN

AMAZING REDD(7)/ MILLROSE(8)-PLACE

7. AS GOOD AS IT GETS is down in class and is my up setter of the day, has won easily at this level last year in summers.BAZINGA is a rogue horse who has been working.HAPPY HOURS from an unreliable trainer has the rookie repeating.TEA WID ME won warming up, should do well again.

AS GOOD AS IT GETS(1)-WIN

HAPPY HOURS(5)/ TEA WID ME (8)-PLACE.

8. BENGALURU PRINCESS had run a forward race and has been tracking nicely, but see the shinning red herring, T Jodha who is a loyalist of MR Studs is riding on this one. MR Studs has the top bred half sister to BRILLIANT CUT racing after a pulled run last time. A replay of yesterday's RED GALIEO 'race may be played out in the rings so watch out for such crooked connections out to screw you moneywise. HARLEY QUINN is the best performed from the worst stables, may or may not jump well. SNOW CRYSTAL is from a reasonable trainer and is a top bred, but performance has been way below expectations.

SNOW CRYSTAL(7)-WIN

GIRL WITH PEARL(4)/ HARLEY QUINN(5)-PLACE.

RENEE FOR SQUANDERER TROPHY

Saturday, July 2, 2016


BANGALORE RACES

1. HERO WORSHIP is a problematic horse who has often played mulish and got withdrawn at the gates, belongs to a non reliable trainer, may run well . JUST FABULOUS is a dud with a hard rider, does not appeal in this type of race. INTERACTIVE impressed in a long odds win, may find it tough with the penalty. TIC TAC TOE is a front runner, will have problems sustaining without the whip. TUSCANO has a decent handicap, last run was fair. THALASSA is from a top sire who has been sharpened up, may utilise the low weights.

THALASSA(9)-WIN

TUSCANO(8)/ HERO WORSHIP(1)-PLACE.


2. MAJOR ATTRACTION ran a very fine forward race in older group and has a lad who has impressed in a few of his wins this season. BACAARDI ran a subdued 4th, may improve. ISLAND PEARL is the youngster who impressed in a flashy finish, has looked impressive in track. NINJA was a short odds favorite who took over to go away in the home run and the commentator started singing songs about her when she went lame, has looked fit in fast tracks but back such animals at your own peril .

ISLAND PEARL(7)-WIN

MAJOR ATTRACTION(1)/ NINJA(8)-PLACE.

3. VIVID IMPRESSION was backed by the public but was not in the run and stayed away from the pack, the low level trainer has had the best season during his career recently and the mare is showing out in tracks, why not another shot if odds are suitable to him. THE LIEUTENANT raced poorly last time as he was recovering from winter injury, has been sharpened up and gets the hard rider for a front run. SANS PEUR surprise with a front run here and posted a foaught out win, has a much better rider to defy the penalty. TAQDEER KA BADSHAH was another one who was pulled in last run, should run a backward race again as he will be waited with.

VIVID IMPRESSION(2)-WIN

THE LIEUTENANT(6)/ SANS PEUR(7)-PLACE.


4. SECRET DIMENSION is the most often tracked horse who runs here, belongs to a scheming trainer and looks at a tough handicap. FANTASY QUEEN went all the way and is bound to run another attractive race as she is in top fettle. MULTIAPP was backed well as she was looking good on handicap and breeding is suggestive for middle distances, just went bust after turning for home, appears to have been packed as the connections have a long history of such failures of public fancies, needs to be reasoned at betting time. BACK OF BEYOND beat nothing much but the way he was galloping left a nice impression and he is bound to trouble all. OPENING ACT has low weights again, won confidently but she is from a sire who appears to have limitations, added distance and class up may not suit.

FANTASY QUEEN (3)-WIN

MULTI APP(4)/ BACK OF BEYOND(5)-PLACE.

5. RENEE has been nicely prepared, is a good type who likes this distance, impressed in mock and has to be beaten. SEA FAIREY has been given a run, is tracking attractively and may be favored to win in the older lot group, has a chance. ETERNAL FLAME has been scrubbed in morning work, can shine any day as she had lots of class in her hay days. EMPEROR CRUISE has come down to a nice level, should run a try race now with the good jockey.

RENEE(3)-WIN
SEA FAIREY(4)/EMPEROR CRUISE(8)-PLACE.

6. BLAZING FAITH went smoothly in gates, can run well in this field, has a handicap chance. DIAMOND GREEN had won last year without any backing beating a good type in EL FENIX, has been given an easy run now and is looking very sharp in tracks. top smiles has pleased in couple of gates, rider repeats. LEGAL LEGACY ran a forward race and packed up, is tracking fine.

DIAMOND GREEN(4)-WIN

BLAZING FAITH(2)/ TOP SMILES(8)-PLACE.

7. BONFIRE had run a good 2nd to FLAMBOYANCE earlier, was kept away from pace in last run, may shine. JERSEY WONDER is working fine. LOZEN was not in the race , has not been worked even now. TRONADA ran a forward race and is coming to hand. FRESH START likes the rainy conditions and looks far improved since the last fighting win. SPIRIT AND TRUTH was entrusted to a second string rider for odds and failed to reach out in time, may be favored to win now.

FRESH START(8)-WIN

SPIRIT AND TRUTH(9)/JERSEY WONDER(3)-PLACE.

8. DAGOBERT has been shown gates, last run in winters was suggestive, lacks tracks.RED GALILEO is from a non performed mare, ran a fine 2nd to EMIDIO in winters, has been given an easy run, is shining in tracks. SIDE WINDER is from an ordinary sire, ran pathetically as a favorite. INTER FLORA is weakly bred and has no show so far.

RED GALILEO(3)-WIN
