Sunday, August 17, 2014


PUNE RACES.

1. BRINDABAN and MYKONOS had last run over a 1200 m race when the later had finished on to nab the former at level weights with the same riders, now the advantage may be with the speedy B ‘BAN over the short trip but then Sandesh is at a high crest nowadays. The old legs of CELSIUS will make it interesting as he has low weights. RAJSAMMAN has run with a slightly inferior lot.

BRINDABAN-MYKONOS.

2. SHINNING PATH was a good 2nd to ZIDAAN who surprisingly ran well again in a tougher group. HOLY BULL has handicap in favor, had lost on the post in Mumbai but may be out for an airing only as the trainer is notorious in fooling with runs, as it is the horse was comprehensively beaten by the oldie ACHIEVE in Mumbai. CACTUS CASH has been given a run , has low weights to go all the way now. ROMEO ran a fighting race but steps up in class.

CACTUS CASH-SHINNING PATH.

3. The distance to be run is the issue here, the top placed runners are stayers who can also carry weight. The one who caught the eye with a fighting run was ZORAAVAR but then he is going over a far longer trip than what suits his bloodlines. MOUNTBATTEN is the one who can run well for the stakes here.

MOUNTBATTEN-ZORAAVAR.

4. ALFREDO has decent bloodlines, has been worked. SATELLITE is full sister to SET ALIGHT and may break the jinx for the trainer who suffers from over confidence. SIMPLY DIVINE was a fighting looser to LOCARNO In Mumbai, was beaten by a superior SPADES here.

SIMPLY DIVINE-SATTELITE.

5. SPADES was a very impressive winner who is maintaining form. YOUR ROYAL MAJESTY has run in graded races where he could not match up with better ones, has a fighting chance now with the allowance. LEGEND OF THE SEAS is tracking nicely and has speed to run a forward race.TAP DANCE was beaten close home by SONG OF AFRICA who won again, has a chance with the rider in finest form. VICTORIAN has low weights and tracking fine.

YOUR ROYAL MAJESTY-SPADES-VICTORIAN.

6. CONSTANTINE from the good international sire had fought out and lost in Mumbai to a speedy RULEDOWNUNDER, will look to redeem now. QUICK ANGEL has run well in most outings and may place here. SHANIA may benefit from change of name, has always run fighting races in Mumbai and has been sharpened up well. SHIVALIK VIEW is a top bred who should run well in maiden outing.

CONSTANTINE-SHANIA-SHIVALIK VIEW.

7. ARRETE who won a sensational race in Bangalore by winning by a pike is tracking well here, may get the added distance also. JACK FROST was another runaway winner who is impressive in preparation. SOLOMON is catching the eye with good tracks, had beaten a good one in QUASAR earlier. WAR COMMAND has been showing out in mornings, was a fighting racer in PMMillion , the most prestigious and prolific paying race of the country for the juveniles. POLYDENCES is from a speedy sire and has been showing out in preparation.

WAR COMMAND-SOLOMON-POLYDENCES.

8. SANSANI has been given a run and note the rider switch. PHELPS is looking good in tracks, trip is ideal. SUNTAN BEAUTY runs well in first outings, has been worked fit. RASHUN should be trying to place .

PHELPS-SANSANI-SUNTAN BEAUTY.

9. BEYOND INTENSITY is from a speedy mare and is in fine nick. MUNTASIR is an in and out runner who may fight out .MT TIANMEN has been tracked well, last run was good. To the moon may run keen under the rookie, had flopped as a favorite in mumbai.

BEYOND INTENSITY-MUNTASIR-MT TIANMEN.

CIRCLE OF BLISS FOR EVE CHAMPION TROPHY

Friday, August 15, 2014


PUNE RACES.

1. UNICO CORAZON ran fair enough under the restricting ride of work jockey, has a good sire and trip will suit.STAR BENOVALENT has struggled in this class in Mumbai runs though he has been beaten by better types. ZAAFIRAH led in most outings in Mumbai but ran out of stamina after the home turn, has worked well.

UNICO CORAZON-STAR BENOVALENT.

2. A straight fight between the the first two with others having weak credentials. CEZZANE had impressed a lot in start to finish good win in Mumbai and ARTISTE won in a more or less similar manner here. The later may hold a slight edge due to sire factor and the good run here.

ARTISTE-CEZANNE.

3. N Lagad must be a worried man, his wards are not picking up races like usual in Pune, TITLIEST who was finishing on last time may still struggle even with the rider switch. The one who impressed with a good run was STAR GAZING who has the rookie repeating. LAURUS PRIDE, POLAR ZONE and ZOE have credentials to fight out, anybody’s race.

TITLIEST- STAR GAZING-LAURUS PRIDE.

4. NATIONAL PRIDE has been a very consistent runner who goes with a keen rookie now. SAMAY BALWAN won long way from home and has the allowance rider to look for repeat in current form. SOMBERERO needs a run for fitness. WINDSOR QUEEN flopped badly as a favourite, the rider repeats. ARABIAN LORD has a tough task in this class to win again inspite of a big jockey switch.

NATIONAL PRIDE-SAMAY BALWAN-WINDSOR QUEEN.

5. CARUSO who is tracking well looks good on handicap. The competition is bound to come up from the speedy BEFORE MEMORY FADES who has summered well in Bangalore and was not ridden for win in the only outing. PETITE FLEUR from the outstanding mare has not raced for long . HAWKER needs this run, watch over longer trips.

BEFORE MEMORY FADES- CARUSO-PETITE FLEUR.

6. The winner of Poonawala Multi million has been fine tuned for the preparatory race prior to bigger events in the season, he takes on a lot of mature stayers and should be favored to win. WENTWORTH had shown improvement in last run at Mumbai and appears a shade better on handicap than other older ones. ZIDAAN has tough penalty over an extended distance. PRESENCE was late to finish in earlier outing and FORTUNE FAVORS has low weights.

SHIVALIK STORM-PRESENCE-FORTUNE FAVORS
.
7. The winner of a single race but well performed in graded races CIRCLE OF BLISS has impressive preparation, perhaps the trainer has also had a serious talk with his jockey who is badly out of form and has looked a looser on most of his rides even before the wagering ended in the rings. AN ACQUIRED TASTE is a top horse who has come to hand in Bangalore and is likely to run a fighting race, weight is against. MONTREAL won many times in Mumbai but had drug in his veins, looks fit from works. STAR OF GIBRALTOR looks to have come to hand after a long hibernation, watch this season.
CIRCLE OF BLISS-AN ACQUIRED TASTE.

8. WAR HORSE was a let down at this centre last year, may have preference of the hard Mumbai track, looks well prepared. RIO on the opposite side enjoys the present cut of the turf and last run over an extended distance was indicator of fitness. WAY OUT is in top fettle from the works, has good initial speed to scoot away if tried sincerely from the stable side. MAUNA KEA is a good type at low weights. ONE KEPT SECRET won well but steps up in class.

WAY OUT-RIO-MAUNA KEA.

9. DREAMS OF YOU who ran a good 2nd has a better performing rider now. BELMONT has been nicely tracked. FLEETWOOD MAC who could not deliver as a favorite is tracking fine and has a handicap chance.ARCHIMEDES showed improvement in last outing, may surprise. OXBRIDGE can stay and is tracking well. ALECTAR is a well bred who looks much improved after the last easy run.

DREAMS OF YOU- FLEETWOOD MAC- ALECTAR.

10. JOSEPHINE has been given a run and is looking to fight out, tracks are suggestive. QUICK FIRE had run a poor race as a favorite, looks fit now. DHANYAVAAD could not hold onto the good lead over the extended trip, has a chance if ridden well. ICE AFFAIR was a keen runner who got interfered with, may be tried. DON CORLEONE is from a good mare, last run was a very poor one, has the rider to pull off in this class.

DHANYAVAAD-DON CORLEONE-JOSEPHINE.

CHULBUL PANDEY HAS A CHANCE IN WADIYAR TROPHY

Thursday, August 14, 2014


BANGALORE CONCLUDING DAY RACES.

1. VIGOROUS was an un extended 3rd who has a chance to do well again. CONQUISTADOR has run last week after a long break, may be a hopeful but was tiring out in last run. JEWEL LADY had surprised by quickening over the turf in last furlong, the shorter trip now will be to the liking, she is working fit. SHOOT OUT was late to finish under this rider last time, has a chance as handicap is appealing. INSPIRATOR has come to hand and will threaten all, has to finish on in time.

INSPIRATOR-VIGOROUS-SHOOT OUT.

2. SECRET TOUCH has a try rider and comes into strong reckoning based on winter runs. SECRET DIMENSION is from a good sire, may be tried in this weak bunch. Oldie YOU’RE GORGEOUS is likely to place based on handicap. NOBLE PRINCESS is working well. SOUTHERN FANTASY is a costly purchase who has not been trained earlier by the laid back trainer, recent few tracks may have shaped up the filly.

SOUTHERN FANTASY-SECRET LAUNCH-YOU’RE GORGEOUS.

3. TURF TACTICS has the good rider riding 3rd time, was kept back from the front bunch in last run, has a good chance. FORTALEZA is tracking well, runs have been disappointing, the well breds have been wasted in the stables. SUZIE OH was a big flop over a sprint when backed well, recent works are very forward. MISTER GREY has been run over sprints, the horse is ideal for a 1400 m trip, watch over the mile also.

TURF TACTICS-FORTALEZA-SUZIE OH.

4. AUTHENTIC showed lots of fighting spirit in last god run, has pleased in tracks. NIMFEA ran a bit of subdued race last time against a too good favorite in RED RED ROSE, has a positive jockey switch. MEDINAH may run a front race, has handicap against. APOLLO STAR was ridden awe fully when taken wide all the way from the bend and lost a certain race last time, the allowance rider over added trip leaves lots of doubts.

AUTHENTIC-NIMFEA.
5. ABSOLUTE RED is not a miler and top weight with a so so rider does not help. Nothing much separates STIMULATE and ARTIC ATTRACTION and both have an equal chance, the former has improved with runs. DEEP BLUE SEA gets the stable top jockey after a fighting run, mile may be a problem.

ARTIC ARRACTION-STIMULATE-DEEP BLUE SEA.

6. FLAME OF PASSION comes into reckoning based on runs but she is from an ordinary brood mare sire. The well bred SMART CONNECTIONS has impressed in latest tracks and has been given soft runs, watch for backing now. EQUINE LOVE is bred from a black type mare but runs have been ordinary. DEL SANTO has been tracking for long, end of the season exposure is not a positive sign.

SMART CONNECTIONS-FLAMES OF PASSION-EQUINE LOVE.

7. LIGHT OF SUCCESS who has been sharpened up on inner sand has a tough handicap. ISHIPINGO has come down in scales with runs, may run a better race now. SECRET PUNCH has looked good in tracks. CHULBUL PANDEY showed improvement in last run, may upset as he has fought out against top class horses before. ARTA has been on a winning streak which is likely to end in this tough field. VIRAT is a fast one who gets a chance to run at low weights.

CHULBUL PANDEY—ARTA-LIGHT OF SUCCESS.

8. FRENEMEE has hopes of placing after the last good forward run. SUPREME REGIME has not been given try runs, even with Sandesh the horse was kept wide last time, has tracked nicely now, may be tried. EVERAZ who is now running over a much shorter distance may be having handicap chance but belongs to a non delivering stables, may get beat. CASTLE STUART has lots of initial speed to trouble. SUMMER SUN has a chance at low weights with this rider.
SUPREME REGIME -EVERAZ- SUMMER SUN.


9. REGAL BOAST may place on rider effort . JAMES BOND had won well and has a good rider looking to repeat but has penalty to consider for the moderate bred. SPREAD EAGLE is catching the eye with smart works and was kept back in last run, has a good chance now. CHERRY HINTON and TRACK ON FIRE are the ones who came up in last respective runs.

SPREAD EAGLE-JAMES BOND-CHERRY HINTON.

10. STARSTRUCK has shown improvement in last run and this one from the small time trainer id due, watch for support at race time. WOODBERG had flopped when backed heavily earlier in the season, has been tracking pleasingly. ROCK N ROLLA beat nothing much with a stronger rider, has maintained form but looks tough for the weak rookie to pull it off. ARZIKI can upset, has come down with runs.

STARSTRUCK-ROCK N ROLLA-WOODBERG.

Sunday, August 10, 2014


PUNE RACES.

1. TWO OCEANS has no credentials except for the rider on a high note, the mare is speed inducing and the sire is ordinary. DIOR has raced against better types, the present distance may not suit. WITHOUT FEAR has a better rookie and should be fighting out after the easy outing. The other one from the same stable ZAAGROS had led all the way and got pipped at the post in last run, has been tracking well and may carry the raw rider now. ANNABETH remains unreliable, was finishing on last time. LAURUS TIKATI is the only one here to have won a race, but has no hope over a sprint. AMAYA may place at low weights.

ZAAGROS-TWO OCEANS-ANNABETH.

2. EMBER LADY who led in as a favorite was done in by the weights. ADMINISTRATE from a god sire is working fine. SKYWALK has come down a lot, one to watch with the improved rider. SPEAR OF TRIUM will like the short sprint, has been given a lung opener.

SPEAR OF TRIUM-SKYWALK-EMBER LADY.

3. CHA CHA CHA is from a world fame sire and has been tracking fine, the rider appears to be very ordinary. SOOTHSAYER is from the very speedy black type mare and is showing out in mornings, has been give an easy outing. The owners have also pitched in a good bred from a black type mare in OCEAN DREAM to confuse the issue, has a serious rider to boot. SIR SONG has been tracked, may run well.

SOOTHSAYER-CHA CHA CHA-OCEAN DREAM.

4. PAPAKURA has been given a run and now goes over ideal trip with a jockey switch. MOON SHADOW had a very profitable Mumbai season, has the rider to carry on . SET TO FLY has been prepared, Mumbai runs were for weight reducing. MONZA appears to have lost interest in racing, was very lethargic in last run. DICTATOR showed lot of heart in last finish. ICE ZONE has a useful rider now.

SET TO FLY-MOON SHADOW-DICTATOR.

5. KING GLORIEUX is nicely bred and is suited for such distances, is yet to come to hand. MARCOS is tracking fine, can stay the trip. PAURUS over this distance is not what the breeding suggests, let us see how the top jockey handles this one who has failed earlier. ATHENS was given a very suspect ride when backed by public in Mumbai, has low weights and a much honest rider now.

ATHENS-PAURUS.

6. MACHIAVELLIANISM is a quality horse who is in top fettle, change of venue is to be factored and is much better placed on handicap vis a vis SUPREME STAR now. FALCON won finishing on and will look to do well again. DANCING PHOENIX ran a below par sprint, added distance is another issue. DANCING PRANCES should be the one to beat here, looks in comfort zone at this level, after a good finish last time. SILVER STREAK has been prepared, the trainer has lost all his entries so far.STARRY EYES is glistening on the tracks, can trouble all, lack of a run may be factored.

DANCING PRANCES-STARRY EYES-MACHIAVELLIANISM.

7. ZOLTAN has been a sincere runner who has not been able to score for long, has the rider to fight the race. ZUMI ZUMI has been tracked, should like the cut in the grass. PORTA BANUS has been ordinary, gets a good rider for a rogue trainer. STAR BUILDER had a useful outing, may look to place again. FLASH DRIVE is speedy , has worked fine. DARK WILLIAM may run well.

FLASH DRIVE- ZOLTAN-PORTA BANUS.

8. TAMMY O who is tracking well has a bad draw. EARTH TAMER was a lucratively placing horse, may be tried again. VIXEN has speed to shoot away, should gain from the last outing. SHAUGHNESSEY is definitely a 1400 m horse, tracks are good, may deliver. AFFIRMATION has been nicely tracked, the rider has often blundered on good rides and the stable is yet to fire with forward runners.

VIXEN-TAMMY O-SHAUGHNESSEY.

9. DIVINE WISH has been given an airing and will run for money now, distance may be a bit short. BASIC LIFE can upset with a forward run. INTIME can run a good sprint. LUCKY CHARM may place again, has a rider switch.
BASIC LIFE-LUCKY CHARM-DIVINE WISH.
