After a long time all the favorites bit the dust at Bangalore yesterday, may be it was the heavy rains or the elliptical approach of Mars who is coming nearer to earth by thousands of miles everyday.
1. TRILLION WIN ran like a donkey when fancied as a favorite in last run, the field is even poorer today yet it is difficult for the rider to reverse the result in such a short time. SHUBHA is sparingly raced from this enigma of a trainer whose LESTER won at very big odds yesterday. YOU’RE MAGNIFIQUE is from a betting owner who hides the true form of his runners in prep races. ATTATURK is running for 43 rd time, the trainers formula of running every week and keeping the horse fit works out at times , the horse had won under this rider at 61 Kgs in this class, looks like all have to chase him at these favorable weights today.
2. WALTZ AWAY impressed in last effort, the son of a decent sire has come to hand. THE DARLING BOY should be fighting for places. OCEAN PRINCE is working into form, has a chance to place. EMERALD is a tail swisher, she is looking good when seen in light of last few runs, may be fancied on that score.
WALTZ AWAY-EMERALD-THE DARLING BOY
3. LEGEND REBORN has finally been sold by the owner to the trainer after the foolish exercise of trying him under a useless jockey to get odds, will run better now. CARNIVAL OF JOY has been waited with by the trainer, should like the short trip .RAINBOW RISING can sprint well here, has been worked by this horse keeper type trainer who has primary instructions only to look after the fitness of his wards. SUMMERWINE has a rookie who may get him to race upfront.
CARNIVAL OF JOY-RAINBOW RISING-LEGEND REBORN
4. Why the trainer keeps giving good mounts to this very mediocre jockey baffles me, he lost a certain race on LOVE ME TENDER yesterday and today the in form horse MODERN ART has to suffer him. BORN TO FLY will be fancied on breeding and the fine fighting win in last run, the step up in trip is steep. REZOOM is a failed favorite over 1800m, gets a chance to redeem failure. SPARK OF ATAN has tracked well over staying trips, the cross between Placerville and a Razeen mare should be encouraging the connections to score at good odds at this distance. GOLDEN QUEST is from that wonderful mare STUNNING, the last win was comfortable.
GOLDEN QUEST-SPARK OF ATAN-BORN TO FLY
5. PALAZZIO’S SON has the speed to go away today, the last run was suggestive. CAPTIVATING was done in by the lack of a race run, should improve. ORIGINALITY may place, the tracks are good. BHAGIRATHI has improved with each run, may upset.
6. TRUE IMPRESSION has been showing out in tracks like most from this below average trainer, I do not know what he did to his ward yesterday as the good on paper, THE SENATOR was being eaten at all odds by the bookies, today TRUE IMPRESSION does not inspire any confidence from me. SOUND BET has been given runs, may score. ACT OF DUTY impressed in gates, has not won for long. POWER GRID defied the predictions of most by a surprisingly easy win, may encore. PERSIAN PRINCESS is a failed favorite , the jockey had handled her tenderly.
ACT OF DUTY-SOUND BET-POWER GRID
7. LEONARDO is an enigma, remains a maiden who promised much without delivering. STAR ASSEMBLY was given a laid back run, needs to be persisted with. LUSH LASHES runs too soon after the last win. OBAN may run on board. NATIVE TALENT has scales in favor, does not run as per expectations.
STAR ASSEMBLY-NATIVE TALENT-OBAN
8. SKYDIVER needed the run when failing as a favorite. SOUTH PARADISE is coming round to scoring soon. BORN TO PERFORM has worked well. NOT NOT SEVEN has scales in favor to make a race of it
SKYDIVER-NOT NOT SEVEN-BORN TO PERFORM
DAYS BEST====PALLAZIO’S SON
DOUBLE----------ATTATURK X CARNIVAL OF JOY
