First of all i welcome all invitees,guests who have arrived in hyderabad to witness major racing event of the year.Its indeed a pleasure to witness best of horses from all centres participating.Every one will miss Set alight.HRC has made eloborate arrangements to make this event pleasant and joyful.Most of the races look fav and rails birds who bet on favs can have field day.Major event is match race between Ice breaker and Antonios.Following are my top 4 selected horses.
Race1:Becket(5)/Glory to dancer(7)/Al fatha(4)
The fact that Becket was fav in its debut run against likes of Sansperil,Natouchka,Amazing ray speaks volumes abt its class,won handsomely in its last outing,is rated high by its connection and will be hard to toss.Glory to dancer has been prepared very well,won a mock race and if its last track where it clocked 40sec for 600mts is any indication then Becket has tough fight on hand,anyways race is restricted to this two only.Al fatha by default comes in third spot.If it fails then either Hussler or Menlo park can sneak in for place.
Race2:Palazziosun(4)/Rare and precious(5)/Oasis star(3)/Originality(8)
Oasis star has proved herself every time it ran,in this set has to tackle Palazzios sun who comes as shade better than her and in all probability can upset.Originality is at tidy handicap and emerges as PLACE CERTAINITY of the day.I will lay Oasis star and back Originality in place.
Arts if fancied can be safely ignored even for place.Talisker stands tall in this set,has clear advantage over its rival and should win.Nox is speedy and can hold on to runner berth.Classic charge will place by default.If local horses are tried then scubario has outside chance to place.
Race4:Spot on(6)/Reconnect(2)/Vijay rath(3)
Ignore last run of Spot on under heavy foot conditions,will be hard to toss in No false rails day.Reconnect has bright chance to finish second and can be good place bet.Vijayrath is dark un and can sneak in place if Reconnect fails to deliver again.Elpaso does not impress me.
Very difficult to pick a clear cut winner in this race.Iam opting for Top rated Yana and Bottom weighted Riyasat to prevail over others.Maximise is dark un and can upset.Arabian knight has habit of surprising by its speed which it holds on till end over 12 furlongs,but not sure whether Vinod shinde can handle it properly.
Race6:Rhapsidion Snow(5)/Diego Rivera(3)/Juventus(8)/Dancing Dynamite(6)
Yet another close race and above mentioned four horses come very close in final outcome.It can go any way.I would prefer Rhapsidion snow for win.
Main event of the racing calender.It will be match race between Icebreaker and Antonois.Lets see who prevails in the end.
Race8:Modest bride(6)/Leave it to me(9)/Devil grandma(14)/Royal invader(8)
Something is brewing in Modest bride,looks to be have prepared very well keeping this race in mind,will be involved in final tussle.,emerges as good long shot bet of the day.Leave it to me is next best and eventual winner has to beat her.Devil grandma failed to leave upto expectations in its last run,can resurrect her image.
Treble:Talisker(3-6)/Spot on(4-6)/Rhapsidion Snow(6-5)
