A tricky card awaits the public today as some of the races are being contested by a level lot of runners. It appears that Hyderabad lot is yet to get involved seriously & hopeful contestants will be local horses only.
The Karnataka Police Cup is an open affair in which choosing a winner may be difficult because of no recent form, however CROCODILE HUNTER who has changed stables may upset the favorite who has poor credentials.
1. GRIS RAPIDE is a speedy type who is pleasing in tracks but has a non try jockey. ALEXANDERTHEGREAT is working well. JAAN BAAZ a half brother to black type SPECIALIZE has been well prepared. OPPRIMO has a good jockey, the preparation is there, but the breeding is crying for more distance.
2. LIGHT BRIGADE is full brother to REGAL CONNECTION, Kolkota Derby Winner, the tracks are impressive. SIR ALMAS is working well. LOTUS LEAF was given a horrendous ride when she ran as a favorite, the tracks show fluency & keen ness. PERFECT ANALYSIS is OK in tracks.
LOTUS LEAF-PERFECT ANALYSIS-LIGHT BRIGADE
3. HILL OF GRACE is a decent type who is attractive in trials. QUEEN’S GUEST won a sprint but this full sister to ROSMINI could not improve upon at Mumbai, the tracks here indicate lot of speed, the breeding also suggests that she is a sprinter, may not go all the way. SPARK OF ISIS was a suggestive 4th in the last run, the horse may upset. STRATEGIC PARTNER is brother to black type AMORINA may run a good race.
HILL OF GRACE -SPARK OF ISIS-QUEENS GUEST
4. TALK OF THE DEVIL is a game horse, the weight is a stopper. VANQUISH has not been handled well by the trainer, looks weak here as he has won only in class 4 so far. STAFIRE is a useful type who is well prepared. CROCODILE HUNTER is showing out in works. RENASCENT who is really at it in tracks may be the doosra from the stables.
5. STRONG MINDED is a good handicapper who is pleasing in works. KIARA is a speedy filly whom all have to chase, the connections have a good thing if they want to win. CIMMARON is a speedy type who is blazing the tracks. RAIDER’S SUN may run well. LUSH FOLIAGE is at good handicap.
KIARA-STRONG MINDED-LUSH FOLIAGE
6. ALCMENE is nice type, may not like the step up in distance. STAR OF WASHINGTON appears to be main hope as of now of the great owner for the summer classics, should win. EQUIDAE won impressively, will be fighting for supremacy. VALID EXPECTATIONS is a speedy type who may go the added distance.
STAR OF WASHINGTON-EQUIDAE-VALID EXPECTATIONS
7. ROYAL HERO is working well. MAAHI VE is impressive in works. LIGHTNING BLUES has been on board mostly, it is due for a win but needs more distance. LUCKY GOLD STAR has been tracking only under this rider looks good on handicap.
LUCKY GOLD STAR-ROYAL HERO-LIGHTNING BLUE
