Friday, April 29, 2016


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.

BLACK PEPPER(2)-WIN

KICKAPOO (9)/MULLRINA(10)-PLACE

2. ZIP AWAY had won on opening day and has capability to score on last day, ignore last easy run . SANG BLEU has gone winless in the season and has a tough job even now. BEAUTIFUL EVENING is likely to be tried, needs distance.DOUBLE O SEVEN is a plodder, may loose again. SHAUGNESSEY from the most crooked intent stable was blatantly pulled in last run as he was not backed by the owner, has a good handicap today.RED APPLE has a decent chance at low weights, was beaten by a better horse.

ZIP AWAY(1)-WIN

RED APPLE(11)/DOUBLE O SEVEN(6)-PLACE

3. MASTER NOVAK began moving when the winning post was sighted, has a chance. GO MY GIRL was a hot favorite who came under the stick at 600m, amazing for a filly who likes to go all the way even over a mile?, obviously packed from home.MR SINGH retains form.ROSES ARE FOREVER ran a good forward race but has extra furlong to go.

GO MY GIRL(2)-WIN

MASTER NOVAK(1)/ROSES ARE FOREVER(10)-PLACE

MISS DUNCAN (1111110)-WIN

GLORY AWAITS(2)/STEP IN TIME (6)-PLACE.

5. ASHWA DHRUVI was not in the race last time, may rebound now. CRIXUS was backed by the most influential owners as a good thing with out realizing that some smart punt is going to trip them, has a chance to redeem .RACING KING has forward form. BOLD OPINION ran a good race, may be tried again.

JHILMIL(6)-WIN

MORNING DEVOTION(1)/RULING CLAS(11)-PLACE.

8. The clever trainer has utilised the clever ploy of pulling off longer odds win for his owners by having a false favorite from his large stable, COCO AGAIN made the owners smile all the way home, showed remarkable improvement by going away, now what? CAPTIVATE has failed twice in a row, ignore. FOUR BY FOUR should finally win at this low handicap if half fit. AL KEFIA is another failed favorite who runs with hope.

BOW TO KING FOR KETTY TROPHY

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

ONES OWN (3)-PLACE.

NANUK(2)/ RIGHT OPTION(6)-PLACE.

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.
