A long session of racing has been framed for the day. The trend of racing so far this season has been favorable for punters with more than 50% public favorites obliging. The card today is a bit tricky & one needs to be wary of false favorites. With ltd number of form/ prepared horses from MAM stables for a change, a more challenging field is evident from a look at the card. The racing public would certainly welcome a winner from Hyderabad visitors & the duo of S Padmanabhan & W Smith get their much awaited maiden winner this season. Today there is a good possibility of any/ all of these.
POINTERS WITH SELECTIONS
TREND TRACKER is bred for speed, may run well. POWER TO FIGHT has been subjected to long gallops, the pedigree is average. BORN TO SHINE is looking fit, the tracks are encouraging. RED RIVER REBEL is showing lot of speed in works, can run a good race if tried.
BORN TO SHINE-RED RIVER REBEL-POWER TO FIGHT
GLEAMING SKY, a nicely bred winner over 1600 m at Mumbai has been showing out in trials. ORIENTATION, a 4 year old in this staying trip has been well prepared. HILL OF GRACE ran below par last time, may show improvement. STRATEGIC PARTNER a full sister to AMORINA was slowly off, ridden easy, yet dragged the jockey in finishing on board in her last run. The try jockey gives her a fighting chance. LET THE RIVER RUN is impressive in trials, the distance suits the distaff side of this breed.
GLEAMING SKY-STRATEGIC PARTNER-HILL OF GRACE
ANDRONICUS is very pleasing in tracks. SURPRISE PACKAGE has been sharpened up. PIED HARRIER has a lot of early speed, the jockey will be forcing the issue. AWESOME BEAUTY has been given a run. ENFORCER was a close 2nd to ANDRONICUS last year in a maidens race at level weights, the trainer should be tempted to try him with such a huge weight advantage today.
MUSIC FOREVER is impressive in trials, the mock race with top horses was encouraging, the trainer is a non performer. SUN DEVICE has been sharpened up for debut. PLEASURING was an easy runner up on opening day. DIFFERENT OPINION may place again.
