1. SPREAD A SMILE is at a good handicap and has a rider who is doing well due to his allowance. KILLER FOOT belongs to the notorious connections and may be in the game if their money is riding , the horse has been tracking well. CUTE ANGEL is poorly bred and despite a huge support could not overtake SHERDIL in last run. MUTUAL FUND is attractive in tracks. COUELLE has been a big disappointment who may run well.
SPREAD A SMILE-CUTE ANGEL-KILLER FOOT
2. BUCK PASSER JUNIOR has the anti public rider, can win all the way. WAY TO WEALTH was a reasonable 2nd last week. Sterling snip may benefit from the mock race. SUNDAY BEST is by the very speedy mare, should run well.
BUCK PASSER JUNIOR-SUNDAY BEST-WAY TO WEALTH
3. CELTIC HEROINE was a surprise winner who may be fancied now but can not be backed as she had gone up to 7 to 1 from 3 to 2 on in last run. JEDI KNIGHT can run a forward race. VEDA PRIYA is working well. VODOO MOON is in fine form. MISTER TROOPER was a faraway 2nd, may run on board.
VODOO MOON-JEDI KNIGHT-CELTIC HEROINE
4. ROYAL LIAISON is coming to hand, can run well now. SUPERLATIVO can not get a weaker field than this to win. SUPER SPEAR should be posing some questions to the contenders now. BURNING AMBITIONS was an on money favorite who had vanished to the rear in last run, can not be supported now.
SUPERLATIVO-SUPER SPEAR-ROYAL LIAISON
5. DUCKWORTH has no tracks. YOU ARE A LEGEND was an impressive winner who will be pitched in for a repeat. TANZANITE is very well bred and has run with superior types. LOTUS POND is a decent type from the local stables who ran a good 2nd last time.
TANZANITE-LOTUS POND-YOU ARE A LEGEND
6. MAN DOWN UNDER has put in some good tracks. MIGHTY MONARCH will be looking to get into money again with the decent rider. BECKET is a well bred got abroad who has been working extremely well and should be an on money favorite whom all have to catch up. REAL MAGIC was a notable 2nd who has to beat the favorite only. HIGH GLEAM has been a disappointment so far, last run was very poor.
BECKET-REAL MAGIC-MIGHTY MONARCH
7. VALIANT BAY has the rookie to off set the penalty for the fine win. SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE can only win if Ramaswamy’s horse is not a serious contender. JOIN THE PARTY is a good type fighter who will lead for the post. DANGER DIABOLIC looks vastly improved after some fine tracks.
JOIN THE PRTY-VALIANT BAY-DANGER DIABOLIC
8. BOSTON RANGER has a good jockey, he had won twice in a row in mysore summers at this distance. NO NAME was brought down for a good gamble, may repeat the good performance. CARTOUCHE is a game old stayer. ROYAL HAWK was not urged to win while allowing the heavily backed favorite to win in the last made up race, looks good at this distance.
ROYAL HAWK-BOSTON RANGER-NO NAME
DOUBLE======SUPERLATIVO X BECKETT

1. ASCOT HUNTER has been tracking regularly and the two races should have benefited. GREEN FUTURE is decently bred and showing out somewhat in tracks. GREEN RIBBON has a chance to place. QUEEN OF SUN has been given number of gates and a mock race.
GREEN FUTURE-GREEN RIBBON-QUEEN OF SUN
2. TAKE A CHANCE has been tracking well and has the best jockey. GOLDEN GUN has come down in class, the rider is poor. SILVER PEG is game for this distance. ASHWA PADDMA ran well last time but has a habit of being lethargic in early part.
TAKE A CHANCE-ASHWA PADDMA-GOLDEN GUN
3. MIDDLE MAN has been scrubbed in tracks. PARAMOUNT has been well prepared after placing in last run. PALADIN is coming down from class I and may surprise at the expense of stalemate. OUTSTANDING was a a runaway winner, the extra distance may be a worry.
4. SHUBH SHUBH is in prolific form and will try to go all the way, the extra distance should be a worry. SENEGAL is a good sprinter who may need this run. DEGAS has a rookie jockey to take advantage of tilt in scales. SONIC BOOM is in fine form, may run well at this distance also.
SONIC BOOM-SHUB SHUB
5. POLISH BEAUTY needs to be given another chance. OPERA ROYALE has to defy the handicap to repeat, the distance should not be an issue. TIME AND AGAIN has been well prepared and given a run. VIELLE has won this distance at about these weights before.
POLISH BEAUTY-TIME AND AGAIN-VIELLE
6. SAM ALDO had run a very decent 2nd last month. SAPPHIRE looks to be in irreproachable form and should repeat. KOHINOOR BEAUTY is well bred to show out despite lack of a run for long. KING IOF THE RING won well and is maintaining form. ROMARIO is at good weights, has tracked well.

1. GOOD HOPE can hope to place here as the bunch is very mediocre. HI DOLLY is a held back filly who can surprise any day. THE RIGHT MAN has only to be backed by his miserable trainer who has held him back for long. STRIKE IT RICH looks a likely candidate based on last run when he was brought into contention very late.
THE RIGHT MAN-STRIKE IT RICH-GOOD HOPE
2. ALASKA had won in a start to finish effort in this very class, the last run was good. RAN BANKA goes over the pet distance. HIGHLAND MUSIC was unlucky to loose as a favorite when he got up a bit late. CHAK DE won a very good gamble for this very poorly performing trainer, the horse has been working well.
ALASKA-HIGHLAND MUSIC-RAN BANKA
3. GATRAVAT has ben prepared, has a very bad trainer. MOON FLOWER has won twice in younger company and will be backed to make it three in a row. ABSOLUTE REALITY was a good 2nd to SALTORO, the rookie rider has a challenging task here. CLASSIC RULER was a very impressive winner who can repeat.
CLASSIC RULER-MOON FLOWER-ABSOLUTE REALITY
4. CHURCHILL is a well bred who has been painstakingly prepared. STAR OF CARDIFF should like this trip. RIVER RULE was a very decent 5th, the tracks are pleasing. SI COMO NO ran disappointingly with the weaker rider last time, may make amends now.
SI COMO NO-RIVER RULE-CHURCHILL
5. GLORIA is a well bred who has been apparently been held back for a gamble. PERPETUATION is tracking well, she bled in last race and has to be wwtched now. TRIGANCE is by the speediest mare, the last run was easy. ZENTETTA is being scrubbed in tracks.
6. DIEGO RIVIERA is looking very fit in trials, has back breaking weight to carry. JUVENTUS was very impressive in last win. RED ROMEO was considered in top three of last years classic contenders. BEYOND BELIEF is in top form.
JUVENTUS-RED ROMEO-DIEGO RIVIERA
7. THE RISING has a claimer to offset the penalty for the last win. EKHABINSKYA was being hailed as a winner 100 yards from home in last run when she stopped to get beat on post. ARES is running very forward and is going over the short trip against his breeding. HIGHLAND BOUNTY is at feather weight and the tracks are good.
8. WESTERN CHALLENGE apparently belongs to the persons with bookies connection, he has already made them a load of money by running against the public. ARABIAN CHAMP is maintaining form. BELLIGERENT was impressive in last run, the gates later are indicators of form. FIRE VAULT can upset if tried.
BELLIGERENT-FIRE VAULT-ARABIAN CHAMP
DOUBLE=====SI COMO NO X HIGHLAND BOUNTY
Posted by Sarat Sharma at 11:48 AM
1. GARA FLUID is tracking well and being from main circuit, she is the one who has an edge here. SON OF THE SOIL placed first time in career and being a four year old has a chance to improve. MUTUAL FUND is very impressive in works. WELLINGTON will try to earn more before retirement. NIGHT LIGHT from Bangalore circuit may place.
GARA FLUID-SON OF THE SOIL-MUTUAL FUND
2. DEMANDING is bound to run a forward race. ZOOMING who had won in class two is now down to this class. FOREVER GRANDE with the try jockey should be looking to improve on last effort. BREED APART is due for a win, strangely the champion Mysore jockey has not won a race for long. LAND OF SMILES was an easy winner who may run well in higher class.
BREED APART-FOREVER GRANDE-LAND OF SMILES
3. CILANTRO is pleasing in tracks. KANGAROO PUNCH is at a stiff handicap. ROYAL BANK disappointed in last run, may have given away the race. ARABIAN MEMORIES is looking fit in works and will fight out. TOUCH OF LAND had won a labored effort in lower class in Mumbai, has been tracking well.
ROYAL BANK-TOUCH OF LAND-CILANTRO
4. ACT OF FAITH is well prepared and can win in this class. DIFFERENT OPINION may run well here. SHER DIL was a fighting winner who has scope to improve. FREEDOM FIGHTER was a all the way winner who is maintaining form. PHENOMENAL STRIDES is at low weights.
ACT OF FAITH-PHENOMENAL STRIDES-FREEDOM FIGHTER
5. ON A ROLL lost last time due to a very poor effort on part of the jockey, the present rider may be able to deliver. ALCHESAYE may run well as he is a moody type. ALWAYS FOR YOU is in fine fettle and has improved this season. ATLANTUS won due to default, does not appeal to me.
ON A ROLL-ALWAYS FOR YOU-ATLANTUS
6. OHIYESA is a good type who is running with class horses. SPRINT STAR won the colts at Bangalore and had got beaten by MYSTIC QUEST when conceding chunks of weight, the later is definitely improved after the fine win in fillies. CLASSERVILLE is a very well prepared horse who has run better than the other two main contenders before, the top trainer should be looking to add this one also.
7. DESDEMONA is at a severe disadvantage on handicap. KRIPA is working very well, may need a run. STAR BRIGHT trashed the field in last run and being a well bred should be followed now. FLOWER ALLEY has a slight handicap advantage but this unknown rider appears to be a disadvantage.
STAR BRIGHT-FLOWER ALLEY-DESDEMONA
8. SUPERIOR SURPRISE is game for this distance. STAR OF WASHINGTON appears to have come on after the rest, once considered a classic type he had gone off color in last two seasons. LIBERTY SPEAKS is maintaining form. CIBONEY comes into contention based on last run, the distance is a bit more for her.
STAR OF WASHINGTON-CIBONEY-SUPERIOR SURPRISE

Posted by Sarat Sharma at 10:41 AM
1. MOONLIGHT DANCER has been well prepared but the top weight is a stopper. RAIN GOD can upset. STAR OF PARADISE is being scrubbed in works, looks improved. MAHSEER is game for this distance. ANALIKA may run well at bottom weight with an allowance jockey.
STAR OF PARADISE-ANALIKA-MOONLIGHT DANCER
2. REAL GLADIATOR is the only winner here and he can definitely look for a second win as the field is hopeless. SNOW FRWESH has a decent chance but belongs to one of the poorest performing trainer in Bangalore. TRUTH AND FAITH is by that good type ENGLISH LADY who had won 11 races for the sporting owner in Delhi, can shine on debut with the reasonable jockey. LOOKING TO LUCK may run well if he breaks out level.
REAL GLADIATOR-SNOW FRESH-TRUTH AND FAITH
3. MONARCHIAL is showing plenty of eagerness in tracks. SHE’S A DIAMOND has a poor jockey, the horse has been an enigma. SHOT OF GOLD is in fine form. NEARCO MASTER was a decent runner despite a tardy getaway from the gates.
NEARCO MASTER-SHOT OF GOLD -SHE’S A DIAMOND
4. SMART N SPECIAL has handicap in favor but the preparation is lacking. RECOLLECTION was an unlucky looser who is showing out in trials. MOVIE QUEEN comes out better based on the last run but can N HARSHA win regularly? DAMGOOD may benefit from the couple of gates. THUNDER ON ran a decent race last time.
RECOLLECTION-THUNDER ON-SMART N SPECIAL
5. HILL OF GRACE has been given gates, may need a run here. THE GAIN is in fine form and has a good jockey. SCENIC MELODY won in a poor bunch, looks tough for a repeat. MUCHO has raced in better company in Bangalore.
HILL OF GRACE-SCENIC MELODY- THE GAIN
6. Looks like a made up race with many runners from the same connection. WONDER SMILE appears to have gained after the couple of runs and should be winning now. TALK OF THE DEVIL has muffed his chance in last run. DARE DON is going to be main adversary here as he impressed in last run and the distance is ideal.
WONDER SMILE-DARE DON
7. FANAA is due for the win, has to be ridden out though. TINA’S TRIUMPH should be in contention based on his earlier runs, the change of jockey is a puzzle. REFRESH has no tracks. GOLDEN FLOWERS has done very well for the present owner after being in wilderness for long when in colors of previous owner H N Mehta.
FANAA-TINA’S TRIUMPH-GOLDEN FLOWERS
8. FLAIR QUEEN is my tip of the day. The filly is due for a win. SWISS CHOCOLATE is coming to hand. RED STONE belongs to a trainer whom I consider a low level professional who is mostly giving negative runs, why people give him horses to train. The horse has good handicap but may not be ON like last time. FANTABULOUS HERO is in earning form.
FLAIR QUEEN-RED STONE-FANTABULOUS HERO

1. BEFORE YOU is down a lot in class and weight, he will surprise someday. GANDHRAJ is tracking well and should be running a forward race again. ZUETINA did not impress in the last run, can not be considered. RED MESA is from Mumbai circuit, may run well. TIME AND AGAIN is looking very fit, may go all the way.
TIME AND AGAIN-GANDH RAJ-BEFORE YOU
2. SANGREAL may place because of the good rider. KING’S POWER should be a top contender based on his strong showing in tracks. QUAND MEME is a winner from Mumbai who is showing plenty of haste in tracks. KATMAI has a decent chance to fight out.
QUAND MEME-KING’S POWER-KATMAI
3. THE DUKES is tracking well. SILVER GIRL was pulled in last run to facilitate the win of THISLADYISSHADY, may run differently with the bought in rider. VAGABOND has a tough task though he has won with this rider over the same distance before. BEATRICE is going over the ideal distance, had won a maiden race last year over this trip. MRIGNAYNEE looks bit under prepared but should be the one to beat under the fly in jockey.
4. QUALITY ASSURANCE who is working well may need this run. SONIC BOOM won well last time and may perform well irrespective of the penalty. SHY BEAUTY should be in contention once again. ZABARDAST is also looking for a repeat. SIROCCO from the Mumbai side is tracking very well and may open his account straightaway.
5. POLISH BEAUTY has a very weak field to tackle. ABLE STAR has been very well prepared. GAMATI has a decent chance, the rider is weak. STUNNING VIEW who is very well bred for this centre is working well.
POLISH BEAUTY-STUNNING VIEW-GAMATI
6. FIRST N IMPRESSION maintains good form and can run a good race again. CLAS may need a run here. ENYA is looking extremely forward. GAME OF TALENT should be a place candidate.
ENYA-FIRST N IMPRESSION-GAME OF TALENT
7. MURBAN had gone backwards last season, looks improved now. GANDIVA is another one from the same trainer/owner/rider combination who has a chance here. METALLIKA has been prepared and given a run, definitely needs a bit more of the turf to show out.. TAKING OVER is working well.

1. CRÈME DE LA CRÈME is in forward form and is expected to be a front runner under the rookie. HEREAFTER won start to finish under the hard riding of a good jockey, now has an allowance jockey who will have a fight on hand. TEARAWAY can upset here. RULE OF LAW won in a close finish and is working impressively.
HEREAFTER- TEARAWAY- CRÈME DE LA CRÈME
2. WINGS OF ANGELS has won twice this season and has an allowance jockey who won with him at this distance before. MYTHICAL is impressive in works and should be fighting out now. ANAMIKA has come down in scales, the gate practice was good. CRESENDO finished an impressive 2nd under a hopeless jockey, may be tried again.
3. PRINCE OF TROY may place, there are number of horses from N LAGAD here, the trainer is not doing well as expected and may score in this one. SAIL THRU has an oldish but loyal jockey. ARABIAN POWER is at low weights with an outside chance. ASHWA SABBAL may place. ABOVE ALL may be in the game at low weights.
SAIL THRU-PRINCE OF TROY-ARABIAN POWER
4. CATALYST was a good runner last time and is tracking well, the trainer is notorious for winning only at good odds. MATATA PRIDE may need this run. OH SO ROMANTIC is in fine form. TYUMEN may run well under this rookie.
OH SO ROMANTIC-CATALYST
5. CAMBRIASSO has now got the better one of the Narredu’s to break the shackles. CLAIM TO FAME was good 2nd to DE NADA. RIO DEL REY has been given half hearted rides by the stable main jockey. TELL ME MORE has an outside chance after the couple of OK runs . CONFISERIE is well bred with a decent jockey.
CAMBIASSO-CLAIM TO FAME-CONFISERIE
6. ADMIRAL QUEST can run well if at good odds only, definitely needs more distance to perform. DICTATOR is full brother to AUTONOMY who should win after the reasonable run in the opener. GERRARD ran well enough last time. GLORIOUS MISS comes into the picture based on the last 4th. JADE is taking time to come to hands.
DICTATOR-GLORIOUS MISS-ADMIRAL’S QUEST
7. CARLOS is showing keen ness in works. WEIZHOU was a runaway winner who can repeat. ROMANTIC IMPACT has not been handled well by the trainer. COSMOPOLITAN is one of the long shots at this distance. SWAHILLI is going over the correct distance now.
8. ANGELIQUE is a fine stayer who should run well in this field. YANA won as a good gamble and is likely to be hammered down in the ring again. MOTHER’S PRIDE is an improved runner this season. NORA was not stretched in its last runs. VEERA WANG was coming up against VERSAKI in last run.
9. DEVILITTO is being scrubbed in works. HIGHLAND GLORY is working very impressively. BLADE RUNNER is an unreliable type. SOLOR was an eye catching runner last time and should do well after the rest and preparation. GRAND WARRIOR has the jockey, the intentions are to be seen.

10. BEMISAAL is well bred and is tracking well. MAVERICK has a decent jockey. FASCINATION is one of the outsiders. VICTOR IVANOV may run well. SALAWATI who placed first time in career in last run is bound to improve.
DOUBLE=====DICTATOR X YANA

1. ALWAYS is half brother to ANGELIQUE and should not have any problem of staying, the last two tracks are very encouraging. RESILIENCE has always been running on sufferance, should be thereabouts. ZIPPITY ZIP ran a good 2nd, the gates were good. STARLITE EXPRESS is a one paced horse, has handicap chance.
ALWAYS-STARLITE EXPRESS- ZIPITTY ZIP

SEPIA TONE-NATIVE STRATEGY
3. THREE OF ARTS ran well enough last time showing improvement, has not won for very long. GENTLE KNIGHT should benefit from the two mocks, can not get a simpler field than today. RISING HERO will be the fancy based on the eye catching run, to me the distance is short for this stayer.
RISING HERO-THREE OF ARTS
4. ANGELO is well bred and shining in works. TUDOR REGENT can hope to place here. SAFFRON is a speedy type. TREASURE ISLE is well bred and has run close to good winners in its last two runs.

5. ROCKEBY VENUS and SNOW QUEEN have both won over 1800 m before. SNOW QUEEN is running after fine preparation for first time here, the mock race was good. BARBARA may run well at this distance. SADDLER’S RULE was a eye catching fast finisher in last race, has a handicap edge.
SADDLER’S RULE-SNOW QUEEN-BARBARA
6. CHANCELLOR is well bred and speedy type who was given a pulled/ loosing ride last time, needs to be considered if at good odds. ILLUMINATE nearly gobbled up the runaway winner WHISPERING WILLOWS in the final stages of the last run, the jockey was feeble then. LITTLE WARRIOR is by the good sire, the horse may have been pulled when it was the raging favorite, wait and watch. CHINGARI is a place prospect at good odds.
7. RIVER PRIDE is half brother to speedy ARISTOS, the mocks should have bought him on. DESERT QUEEN has been tracking for too long, needs to be given a good look if backed by the owner. SALUTE THE STAR looks cut above based on its runs but has a habit of not winning. GREAT WHITE is pleasing in works.
RIVER PRIDE-DESERT QUEEN- SALUTE THE STAR-
8. CALYPSO DANCER has a positive rider switch. CLOUD COVER is in forward form, the extra distance may be a deterrent. KAPATHOS is genuine horse for for this distance. SHODAAN lost by a whisker, needs to be supported again.

8. LEGENDARY was unlucky to loose out in a photo finish. JERSEY PRIDE has come down by loads, due to strike now. LUSH FOLIAGE could not catch up when backed as a good thing. AWESOME BEAUTY was a comfortable winner who has a rookie to try again. NEED OF THE HOUR is to be watched with this canny rider.

1. Age and the rider should see CLEVER PLOY win from NANO WAR.
2. A tough race with COMBIONRD FORCE and DREAM DANCER capable of winning or placing.
3. GARRISON CHIEF has a decent chance despite the mediocre rider. The challenge may come from SPINTHEMALL.
4. The decently bred VIJAYFAMME should be worth a bet with PRESTON BAILLEY as the main threat.
5. YANA MARIA impressed in last win and is capable of repeating. The betting trend on SCAMPER is to be watched as he is also capable of winning at this handicap and distance.
6. The long in tooth CLASSIC ART is capable of adding to his dozen wins. VIJAYRAAJ is the good type for opposition and may be in the fray.
7. CHESTNUT CHARMER should be the win and place bet depending on the odds. RUBY ROUGE and SSPLENDID ACT are speedy ones at low weights.
8. ZYCON with the strong rider is preferred over MIGHTY PRINCE who is in good fettle.
9. MAM’s horse STAR WORLD can win if at decent odds , or else CLASSIC PEARL is the one to back.

1. SECRET TALK comes into reckoning based on the last run, the jockey is doing well as an apprentice. ASHWA PRAHAR is a gamble horse since he has been waited with. The horse had run a couple of good races last year and has a reasonably good jockey today after a couple of tracks. MRS JONES is from a speedy dam. SECRET AGENDA will try to lead and go all the way. STRIKE IT RICH may need more distance, the jockey is doing well in first rides of the day.

VERSAKI-FLASHING FLAME-MR GREEDY
6. BLAZING SPECTACLE is a decently bought in horse who is very well prepared. HUNTER BAY ran a blinding race at long odds, mow has a stronger jockey. SUPREME EMPEROR could have easily been the favorite here if Prakash was riding, he has run with big company at Mumbai, the first named horse must be good for the owner to send this one for an outing.
