BANGALORE RACES



A tricky card on first look, as there are very few indicators to firm up one’s decision. The big guns are yet to fire as the horses apparently are held back and the strongest indicator will continue to be the flow of money in the ring. There is apparently an acute dearth of riders also, the local jockeys are mostly very average.

1. A very poor field, only MISTER TROOPER has once won a race over 1800m. Out of the youngsters SEVEN STAR has not lived upto his breeding and could not deliver with strong rides of Hayes. The other three do not appeal. MISTER TROOPER was in demand in winters, MEXICAN WAVE is capable of exploiting the low weight advantage. AAJ TAK has been a story of morning appeal, never delivered in races.

MISTER TROOPER-MEXICAN WAVE-SEVEN STAR

LADY DUF is the full sister to speedy COLONEL DUFF and belongs to the same owner who was a trainer here years back. The tracks are good but the jockey is one you cant put your money on straightaway. CALYPSO STAR is sister to POETIC, has a decent chance, the jockey would be trying to get a win after a big loss yesterday. GLORY TO DANCER is brother to SOBERANO, the track was catchy, the rider known for being unreliable, the owner won a heavily backed down horse and may try to keep up the winning streak. BUCCEPHALUS has a strong rider, the gate practice was impressive, the trainer has a dubious reputation.

BROTHER IN ARMS, DARK TAN and BLACK SPLENDOUR have some winter form as well as reasonable riders for competing to win from the front. The horse who appeals against this lot of 5 year olds is STAGE LIGHT who came to hand late and won well in winters and has been tracking well.

STAGE LIGHT-BLACK SPLENDOUR-DARK TAN

This race is likely to be dominated by the 3 year olds. Both SECRET CHARM and RUGGED BEAUTY are winners of a race each and are tracking well. SOUTHERN STYLE is getting loads of kilos from them and he is the one who is showing speed in works. SOUTHERN GLADIATOR has a pathetic jockey. Of the older lot DANTE’S PEAK is likely to run a decent race.

SECRET CHARM-RUGGED BEAUTY-DANTE’S PEAK

The race appears to be a contest between PERFECT ANALYSIS and MUSIC FOREVER. The former has a slight edge due to jockey as well as a sporting team. DARK HORSE is the dark one here form the non performing trainer’s yard. LUNAR LUST may be out for a track only.

PERFECT ANALYSIS-MUSIC FOREVER-DARK HORSE

The graded cup race has many performers over this mid distance who have to tackle against the in form RHAPSIDION SNOW who is looking very good on handicap. The factor against is that he has been stretched quite a bit in last six months as well as the change of weather and track conditions. The Mumbai in form SPIRITUALL looks good on track work, but has to tackle the course first time. TOMSK is the most improved 4 year old who is on the up and should run well over his pet distance. ORIGINALITY has raced against the classic types but she is reverting back to sprinting distance, the tracks are good. SPARK OF GOLD is a hat –tricker who is showing out in works, should run a forward race again. ACQUITAINE would have been one of my choices based on his brilliant speed but the trainer’s decision to put him under the immobile type rider is a big dampener.

VALID EXPECTATIONS has no track, a poor rider. CASANDRA has a try jockey ALL MY COLOURS is working well. The two who are at an ideal weight to merit thought are ENDURING STAR who is impressive in works and the improving type LOCK AND LOAD. COLONEL DUFF was pulled during winters, may upset.

ENDURING STAR-LOCK AND LOAD-CASSANDRA

LITTLE SPLENDOUR has initial speed to keep every one chasing well into the straight, no tracks though. MARCEGALIA is capable of going all the way, he is speedy in works. REGAL RANSOM can be the joker in the pack today. KAJU RAHO had caught the eye in a couple of disinterested runs in winters, the jockey is an indicator that the horse may strike now.

KAJU RAHO-MARCEGALIA-REGAL RANSOM

FANTABULOUS PRINCE is most difficult to predict but it places with a definite pattern to his runs. KYLES OF BUTE who is very keen in tracks needs a run.
OWN VOICE appears to have lost zest for racing. JUST IN TIME is a game sprinter who can win even at this distance. MILAGRO is showing out in works, has to fight out.

MILAGRO-JUST IN TIME-FANTABULOUS PRINCE

DAYS BEST====PERFECT ANALYSIS
