Mumbai 29th March

Hi all,

Following are my views


Belligerent:Working regularly in tracks and pool,In last race finished ahead of Firevault,doubledelight which went to win,earlier in Pune ran close to Brad,and in last mumbai season was seen finishing on well to good horses like Rosebowl and setalight,gave 2 good gatepractises and now running with "Blks',can pull it off.
Beaconlight:Was seen gaining places in final furlong,entrusted to allowance claiming jockey,can extend its best here.
Rattle:Finished ahead of Belligerent in last race,but habitual slow starter,hence avoided.
Solar:Was moving lethargically thru out in its last run,can be ignored for win.
Anemio:Finished 25lenghts behind in its sole run,no track work after that,cannot win.


Anastasia:Was bit slow in start,was last till bend,came with burst of speed,but was running green in its last run where stable prefered other horse,now entrusted to Mcgullah who had the feel of the horse in lone track work,gets the first preference in this set.
Empressofindia:In its last run was handy close 7th till bend,could not accelerate in straight,thereafter systematically prepared,can upset.
Moonflower:Bumped at start in last run,was seen moving well in final stages,working regularly,will not go without fight.
Riverglory:Only track work after last run,last run was prominent till bend,then fizzled out,cannot be trusted for win.
Notability:Was up with front bunch till last 400mts,could not accelerate,has no chance here.

Race3:Premier perception

Premier perception on basis of its impressive second to Monopoly stands out clearly in this junk race where Rococo,Forcado,Strathendrick are running for first time and The Rising,Nativestrategy,Wafadar,Red Dawn are not seen in tracks for long time.Starowar has services of good jockey but distance is sharp,so by default Premier perception has best chances to win in its pet distance.


Arts has threat only in form of Cinquecento but one can safely assume that Banja would not go against Mama.Captainsmart in place looks good option for place.


Catalyst:Never travelled this distance,working well can pull it off in this set.
Chios:Heavily penalised,working very well with good horses,should be in 1-2

Race6:Te Quiero/Ganador

Bad race. Te Quiero and Ganador have some chance as they are running in pet distance and seen in pool.


Snowden should not have much difficulty in winning this race.Grandwarrior is running after long lay off of nearly 1 year.Goldenkingdom and Sirtaj will need this run.


Icebreaker:Best filly of the country after Setalight,should not have much difficulty in winning the race,only thing she has to take care is that she does not get weakened in long straight of mumbai.
Attractress:Wonderfilly from Malakpet,had a feel of Mumbai track in Guineas2000,working very well with "Blks" and sporting the same for race,distance is not a issue,should run a good race.
Phenomenale:Last run was too bad to be true,vanquisher of Dancingdynamite in Pune derby,this filly has good chance to enhance her reputation.
Barbara:Winner of lower class,never travelled beyond mile,can be ignored.
Congrats:Its previous runs suggest it may not be able to sustain itself after 2000mts.
Nora,originality,Riyasat,Veerawang:Never travelled over mile,can be ignored.
Corfu:This Kolkotta horse may not be able to make any impression here.


Daffodils:After clearing maidens last Mumbai season,ran forward races to too good horses like Redromeo,Autonomy,ran unextended races in higher category in Pune,ignore last run in this season where it could not get clear passage in final furlong,if fit can make a race out of it.
Rubidium:Vanquisher of Bluejay in Pune,Finished good second to superior Moonstorm{2nd win}in higher class,has good chance.
Sophie:Eventhough running for first time in this season,its lone Gatepractise was impressive,can upset.
Easter Lily:Still a maiden,failed to carry topweight in lower class,will try to run away at this weight.
Highland Bounty:Needs stronger saddle assistence,ignore for win.
Blue Jay:Needs stronger saddle assistence,cannot be backed for win.


Maseeha has an edge over Silvertern and Nitrous{may not be able to sustain this distance}.



Premier perception/Arts/Snowden/Icebreaker/Maseeha

Placeroll:Beaconlight,Empressofindia,Te Quiero,Attractress,Rubidium

Have a nice day.

Mumbai 22nd March: PBM MILLION Sheika vs Versaki

Following are my views for Mumbai races to be held on Sunday.


Frenchkiss:Last run was bit slow in start,in straight was struggling for room thru out,earlier finished eye catching second over 1200mts,looks very good here in this poor set.

Forestflair may be installed as favourite on basis of his performance in Graded races,its win were highly laboured as evident by relentlessly whipping by jockey,in this sprint race may find it difficult.Seatreasure's win was very very impressive beating Astral comprehensively,its final track is winners track,should win this race.Stablemate Seaofkisses may finish ahead of Forestflair.

Race3:Cheveron(1)/ Flaringsun(3)

Only Rageofangels has travelled this distance and won,but is out of form and can be ignored.Flaringsun has not travelled beyond Mile,but impressive winner twice in as much starts,has bloodlines to stay this distance.Indiansummer has not won a race over 2000mts or travelled 2400mts ever,so ignored.Matatapride at best can sustain itself over 2000mts.We are left only with Cheveron who won impressively in lower category,can extend its best over this distance,but has to be careful with unknown Flaringsun.

Bangalore 21st march

Hi all,

Race1:Vayuputra(6)-win Upset:Sparkofclass

If Vayuputra can reproduce what it displayed in its last outing, it should easily win.Lunarmist is working very well,failed as hot fav in maidens race,cleared maidens and subsequent runs were very poor,can extend best here.Sparkofclass is genuine upset horse and can kick away till the end.

Race2:Spread A Smile(4)/Mexikan Wave(9)

Spreadasmile is my first pick to win this race from Mexicanwave who can upset at this time of season.Retroqueen comes into contention due to jockey merit and +ve change of shoes.

Race3:Valid Expectation(3)/Poetic(2)

Validexpectation is blazing track and is my first pick to win this race from Poetic who will be right there.Perfect Analysis can sneak in place at longer odds.


Diamond hunter has easily beaten Rhapsidionsnow which defeated Bourban king.Diamond hunter looks outstanding in this set as the only threat Bourbon king may find this distance sharp.


Fairoption should easily win this race,Fleetindian can upset if intentions are there.Oban may only place.

Race6:Rare And Precious(2)/Alcmene(7)

Rare And Precious'S last win was too good to be ignored,should again win this race from Ownvision.Make note of Alcmene whose last was not upto the mark,can upset.

Race7:Classic Charge(2)/Spark Of Ilderim(6)

Classic Charge can win in absence of any opposition but it has to be careful with Spark Of Ilderim who is tracking very well and can upset in its very first run.


Double:Valid Expectation(3-3)/Fairoption(5-1)

Treble:Valid Expectation(3-3)/Fairoption(5-1)Rare And Precious(6-2)

Have a nice day

Bangalore 20th March


Following are my views for races to be held on Friday.


It is really frustating to see a vb race in small card of 6 events.Last two runs of Flyingknot were dubious,has been readied for coup and should win this race.Voodomoon was seen moving well but erratically in its last run,tracking very well,but not sure whether whipless jockey can ride it to its potential.Flyingflame may finish third.


This race should see an three way fight between Spicystar,TheSpartan and Noble Kingdom.Spicystar with better saddle assistence and longer distance looks better and should pull it off from Thespartan who after an effortless win in lower category is blazing track,but do not forget it is running first time after being pulled lame.Noble kingdom is over worked,no impressive form to go by.


Elgordo's last run was too good to be ignored,can certainly make his presence felt in his age group.Saptawasha by default will be prime contender.Alcheshye if takes level jump,can pose threat.


Seasonsgreeting has been consistent, finishing on well,can upset here,my money will be on it.Glorybound is tracking well,will try to extend its best.Misshoneydew should place.


Royalbank even though not seen in tracks,looks to be race fit as evident by swimming record,has very good chance to register a win here.Spandau ballet is genuine upset horse and can stun the field.Redford may only place.


Virtuoso even though short in class when compared to Leave it to me , has run benifit,working very well and should be able to pull it off from Bocconcino who seems to have improved a lot showing tremendous turn of foot in tracks and can upset.



Have a nice day

SetAlight: Will she meet her WATERLOO?

Hi all,

Following are my views for races to be held on Thursday.


Ratnavalli:After long lay off of nearly 10months, ran a good forward race before being beaten by Hotmarket Fancy Stefano.Now running with +ve change of shoes and in her age group,keeping fit as evident by regular track work,should not have much difficulty in winning this race.
Free Spirit:Second in lower category,now running in higher category with +ve switch of jockey,working regularly,can only hope to place.
Gameoftalent:Was up with front bunch till last 200mts over 1400mts in its last run,whipless jockey could not extract best from it,now with strong saddle assistence,will fully extend and if distance is not sharp,can make an impression on winner,place is certain.
Therebel:Running in ideal distance,but not seen in tracks or Swimming exercise after its last run.
Amadomio:Winner of lower category in not so impressive timings,lack of trackwork and weak jockey are deterrent.
Mrfixit:Longlay off,no track for last one month,always ran in longer odds in Pune,Could not beat half field even once in its last 3 outings,its chances are almost nil.
The Right Man:Ideal distance is 1200mts,may run easy.


Imperio was fancied in its run in Pune,well prepared,entrusted to good jockey,by default can win in this very poor set.Elemento trances last run was suggestive even though it was running in his age group,will be involved in final finish.Rivertern would have benifitted by its last run,can improve.Exp for Brezhnev and Lone trojan,rest all runners are non winners.Brezhnev is out of form as it could not beat half of the field in same class in its last few outings,whereas Lonetrojan is not sighted in track or pool after its last run.t.Ranbanka was lethargic thru out,no significant acceleration in its last outing,now running with -ve change of shoes.Attractive girl may find this distance beyond its compass..Forestnative is working regularly but has very poor record,even jockey is medicore.Orientaljewel was never fancied in its previous runs,last run was improved,can hope to place.

An Upset is in store.

Needforspeed:Lost race to Kai in stewards room, which went to win again easily,has very good chance but only one track in entire month is huge deterrent.
Gameofpower:Ideally suited for 1200mts,but can place in this poor set.
Notablerunner:A forward runner,drawn advantageously in innermost box,should set a hot pace,now running with "Blks",but one -ve point is that it is getting easily beaten by same class horse in final track work.
Hidden Dragon:Was asked to give more gate practise and show to the satisfaction of Starter.We have not seen any gate practise,infact no track work after last run,so how it is accepted to run is Puzzle.
Stud Of Gold,Honeyday,Expensive Affair:Can be ignored as they have not beaten half of the field even once in their last 3 outings.
Parishilton:Running in his age group,may be a gamble is on,i cannot back it coz iam not sure abt its fitness due to lack of track work or swimming after its last run.
Absolut:Not suited for this distance,may be for mile.
Naseebdar:Not fully prepared,only 1 track after Pune campaign.


After balloting out horses for various reason mentioned in above 3 races we are left only with Snowblind,Recardo and Moonlight.Recardo's bloodline suggest it is not suited for this distance,but the long straight of Mumbai may be to its advantage.Snowblind is endowed with good initial speed,will lead all the way till being caught.My final vote goes to Moonlight who was very impressive in its last victory,has upper hand vis-a-vis Snowblind if Pune runs are compared,has only Recardo to take care of.

Race5:Balance de power (4)/Ishthar(6)

Very interesting race with many interconnected.My first pick is Balance de power to win this race.Make note of Ishthar whose last run was too bad to be believed,has upper hand vis-a- vis all runners on handicap,is genuine upset horse and can stun the field.If fancied both Raquel and Tigressnoire can be eaten.Mr greedy is in great form and by default will be in top3.


Very rarely u find a horse easily winning in 40-66 class after winning maidens.Secretadmirer did so,and by default is prime contender.Sweptaway after an easy run is regular in tracks and final track is given by Rajendra himself,which is clear indication and hence is my first pick to win this race in very suitable distance.Race is restricted to this two.Ildivo can only hope to place as it has failed as hot market fancy earlier on many occasions.


Going by preparation Amore mia looks outstanding,but the puzzling thing is when final 2 track were given by MCullagh,y he was not declared to ride,only valid reason i see is that may be MCullagh is rested for next big race.Herafter is regularly worked out by C Rajender,its final preparatory gallop was very very impressive and can pull it off in its first run.Bluemarina is well prepared and may grace board.Visionary is working well,was lethargic in its last run,can improve.


Will SetAlight Meet her "WATERLOO"? One gets the feeling that its last two wins were not so impressive,may be trainer was testing her holding capacity and her acceleration.This run is extension of that test and this race will decide her staying capacities.Dancingdynamite may be touted as opponent,but after its dismayal failure in Pune derby to Phenomanale who lost here in Mumbai,i do not fancy its chances.Highlandcrown may finished second as the horse is in great form,will fetch good returns for place.Palazios sun was easily beaten by Setalight earlier,tracking with "Blks" but not sporting the same for race.

Race9:Victory Star(5)

Victorystar after an easy run last time,looks very good over this extended trip.Classicstar is working very well,but lack of run is huge deterrent.Nyssa was seen moving very in its last run,now with strong saddle assistence can make an impact here.


If Amaranza is race fit then it is one horse race or else Redmesa stands outstanding and should easily win.Princesssamerah will place at longer odds.




Have a nice day

Mumbai 15th March

Hi all,

Following are my views for races to be held on Sunday.

Race1:Ruleoflaw(2)/Easter Lily(7) Upset:Raftar(5)

The Tempset may be fancied on basis of impressive second in mockrace,but will need this run and can only hope to place.Baring Ruleoflaw,Easterlily and Lastnightsonnets rest all are running for first time in this season on this Track.Ruleoflaw has good initial speed,was observed to be bit rustic in its last run due to long lay off,may have benifitted by that run,now running in lower class has good chance.Easterlily ran a good forward race in its last outing,can definetely improve on that run.Of the first timers Anemos is working very well but will need this run.Raftar even though running after long lay off, is seen regular in tracks and pool,and with help of "Blks" can place at longer odds.

Race2:Blue Danube(4)/Creme De La Creme's(5) Upset:Peregrine Falcon(6)

Littlewarrrior is moving impressively in track with "Blks" but not sporting the same for the race,hence it can be ignored for this run.Bluedanube was bit slow in start in its last outing,working very well and should easily account for this set.Battlefury can be ignored due to -ve switch of jockey and Littlewarrior{same owner}..Creme De La Creme's last run can be ignored as it lost ground at start and ran easy thru out,earlier led the field till last 300mts to Versaki,can extend its best here,place looks good.Both Riverroute and Riding fantasy will need this run.Peregrine Falcon was prominent till last 300mts before easing off,will definetely improve upon that run,place looks very good.


Nora :Moves up with Gigantic strides,will relish Mumbai's long course,Winner of mockrace,only worry is weight.
Thunderinghooves:Lost as hot market fancy,will do well in lower category,can be ignored here.
Walkingtall:Could not make impression even in his age group,looks difficult here.
Risinghero,Brad:Only one track after last run and weak jockey,can be ignored.
Trueelegance:+Change of plates and run benifit makes it one of the contender for this race,should be involved in finish.
Indiansummer:Not so impressive record,at best can place.
Falconcrest:Winner of very very poor company,no chance of even place here.

Race4:Harmonic(9)/Reddragon(5) Upset:Natouchka(10)

Very interesting race.P Shroff has 5 runners, 2 belong to Dhunjiboy,one each to Vijayshirke{partly owned with Dhunjiboy},Vijaymallya and Harish N Mehta.Out of 5 ,Astral flash's last run was suggestive of its class,working well and emerges as main contender from his stable.But my first pick is Harmonica who inspite of rough passage finished flying second in Million race,should win this race with plenty in hand.Reddragon's last run was suggestive and should finish in top2.Natouchka's final preparatory gallop is too good to be ignored,can place at longer odds.

Race5:Calypso Dancer(6)/Global Spirit(5)

Ignore last run of Calypso dancer where it ran easy in strong company,will extend its best here and looks good for win.Globalspirit is sighted in tracked only once casting doubts over his fitness.Incredible beauty and fideldifensor emerges as genuine upset horses.Bluejay needs strong saddle assistence and cannot be backed confidently for win


Monopoly faces no threat in this very poor set and should easily pull it off.Amberogio is genuine contender and will definetely be involved in finish with former.Buattifel can only hope to place.


Feature event of the day.Million dollar question is whether Oasis star can be defeated,if so who can?.Rhapsidionsnow emerges out as serious threat to Oasis star.Aurora Aurealis will place at lucrative odds.


Nobleprince's first run this season,has good feel of Mum track,earlier Won St Ledgers cup last year,working very well,but weight is big worry,can win due to poor company.Maseeha may take advantage of feather weight and steal the show,is my first pick to win this race.Yana is working well,may be fancied,but will have to beat above said duo.

Race9:Lightning Cavalry(5)/Argentina(4)

Race is restricted to this two,with former holding advantage of travelling this distance where as latter one is winner of poor company and in this higher set never travelled this distance.Thanda can hope to fill in the remaining berth.

Race10:Siouxchief (6)/Ladytrooper(9)

All are equally worst and Siouxchief can win simply because no other is worthy.Ladytrooper can fetch good return for place and will finish ahead of Blackpatridge.


Double:Blue Danube(2-4)/Harmonic(4-9)

Treble:Blue Danube(2-4)/Harmonic(4-9)/Monopoly(6-1)

Place:Raftar(1-5)/Peregrine Falcon(2-6)/Natouchka(4-10)/Aurora Aurealis(7-14)/Ladytrooper(10-9)

Have a nice day

Hyderabad Extra day

Hi all,

I was under impression that Extra day races framed will be cancelled owing to Hot temperature but it looks like Welfare of horse is the last thing on minds of trainers and owners who do not want to miss last opportunity to milk out Punters.Since we are habitual punters and will wager irrespective of quality of racing,lets see what is store for us.

School of thoughts:

  • Except for 6th race,rest all races are for Nonwinners,so we are required to look who is best among the worst.
  • Main trainers like Ldsilva,Prasadraju,Netto,Satish ,S A Abbas will take back seat,hence it wud be prudent to back relatively small trainers like Shamshuddin,Srinivas,Silverster,Faisalhassan,Faiyazshiekh.
  • Trainers L D Silva,Prasadraju,Netto take their wards to Bangalore for summer races and hence for most of their runners today,it will be a test of its worthiness to travel to bng.

Race1:Southernqueen(4)/Narwhal(2) Upset:Festivals of india(5)

Southernqueen has shown some form in early part of season,well rested,working well and entrusted to good jockey,will find this distance suitable and can win.Narwhal is hiding true form and can upset in this lower set.Blendofbeauty is still a non winner,at best can place.Festivals of india,if given nod can upset all calculations.

Race2:Secretasset(9)/Afirework(1) Upset:Alpinegirl(3)

Race for youngsters who did not finish even in top3.

Secretasset has run along with very good horses like Chestnutcharmer,Davenport,struggled a bit initially to find the right combination of equipments,has improved in its last 2 runs,can oblige here,only -ve point is lack of track after FEB12.Afirework is forward runner and in this very poor set may find himself kicking till the end if others fail to collar him.Alpinevalley is full sister to Classicart,may need this run before heading towards to Bangalore,but still a upset cannot be ruled out if it displays form true to its bloodlines.

Race3:Royalquest(2)/Southernrose(8) Upset:Fabalous girl(5)

Race for youngsters who did not finish even in top3.

Royalquest has good chance to register a win,its last two runs were suggestive.Southernrose with better saddle assistence,can do well and upset.Firebird is tracking well,but was seen getting weakened in final furlong,can place.Fabalous girl after some listless runs, is tracking well and may extend its best.

Race4:Amontillado(1)/Starfavours(8) Upset:Benazir(5)

Difficult race as we have to pick best among worst.Amontillado was seen moving well in all its runs this season and in this nonwinner set in lower category,has very good chance over this suitable distance.Starfavours last 3 runs can be ignored as it ran along good horses,has very good chance in this weak set.Benazir won two consecutive races in this lower set in Monsoon,subesquent runs were unextended in higher category,can upset.Montush was fancied against Bluemagic in its last run,was winner long back,lacks the winning punch,looks very difficult for win.

Race5:Oceanofpearls(10)/Debonaire(9) Upset:Canadiangirl(8)

Duo of Rubenstein,Regents park may be fancied but i prefer Oceanofpearls who earlier missed a winning berth by whisher,subsequent runs were dismayal,improved a lot as evident by Trackwork,will extend its best here and should be involved in final finish with Debonaire who with help of strong saddle assistence will do well over this extended distance.Canadian girl,if given nod can make all of them run,can upset.

Race6:Hospitality(13)/Hunting Boy(8) Upset:Indian Army(14)

Hospitality is entrusted to very good jockey and can enforce a win here. Oneraoneraonera needs distance,whereas sugarlady was winner in its age group.Indianarmy gave good forward runs over longerdistance,fully extended final trackwork suggest it can do well over this shorter distance.Huntingboy was seen moving very well in final stages,working well,will be involved in final finish.Bundleofroses emerges as genuine upset horse in this set.

Race7:Sixth Element(8)/Punjab Regiment(14) Upset:Adelaide(7)

Sixthelement after change of stables is continously working well,last run was promiment till bend in very tough bunch,can do well in this shorter distance and weak set.Punjabregiment,a habitual front runner can run away at this weight.Adelaide was fancied earlier against good company,may extend its best and return as winner here.

Race8:Classicone(9)/Armstrong(1) Upset:Madho(8)

Classicone was seen quickening well in final stages of races,can strike here.Armstrong in this lower set has very good chance to register a win.Madho's last 2 runs were dismayal but earlier was seen to be prominent till end along with good horses,can chalk out a win.

Race9:Walkinpark(1)/Integar(6) Upset:Smart Empire(4)

Both Walkinpark and Integar does not belong to this set.Its hard for me to believe that Walkinpark has done so badly this season,will do well and should return as winner.Integar will be abreast with Walkinpark all the way and if former weakens will grab the opportunity and win.Smartempire can be reward to Laxman for his hard work for Prasad rajus stable.


Can win:Southernqueen(1-4)/Walkinpark(9-1)/

Goodeachwaybets:Festivals of india(1-5)/Amontillado(4-1)/Oceanofpearls(5-10)/Indian Army(6-14)/Sixth Element(7-8)/Madho(8-8)
