Hyderabad 1st December

Hi all,

Following are my views for Tuesday races.Very typical and tricky card with almost all races having few hidden horses which can upset all calculations.

Race1:Lady Patricia(1)-Win

Lady Patricia is cut above the rest and inspite of Welter weight will not find any difficulty in winning this race.Flaming Ruby was almost a winner before being beaten by Storm force,will be fancied but it has no class against Lady Patricia.Rest all runners are backwards.Lucky Damsel is working well and can place.

Race2:Glen gayle(2)-Win

Beautiful race.4 Youngsters which have won race are pitched against each other.Glen gayle won with plenty in hand,working very well displaying good initial speed and in all probability should return as winner.Magic Million won inspite of riders unwillingness,this race will be true test of his class.Da Xia won a laboured victory over Alexendar Square which failed in its next run,looks diffcult.Jewel in the crown impressed in its debut and kept the faith by winning its next outing,now with +Ve change of shoes should play role of bridesmaid to Glen gayle.Far Beyond has impressed in gate practises,can it upset????

Rac3:Autumn Gold(5)-Win

Bad race with all non performers.Autumn Gold has good initial speed and can lead all the way.Donna Summers is the one which can upset.Booster has impressed in its final gate practise and merits attention inspite of -ve shoes.


Tricky race.Many contenders vying for honours.Indian storm comes top in contention,now made to run without blks,failed to deliver in Monsoon,will be fancied,to me looks difficult.Danzsingh,Alchology lost form.Golden tricks always does well in lower class,will run unextended here.Fuedal lords won once in controversial race and in subsequent races is finishing on well but unable to make it a winning spree.Pythagorous inspite of interferences was seen finishing on well in its last run,working well,only worry is distance,can it hold on till end?Yanamaria won well in its last outing but the same question of staying this distance arises.Ramasses after win in lower class is running listless in higher class,in my view has best chance in this set.

Race5:Victorous Sally(3)-Win

Very tough race.Collette is working very well clocking just 26 seconds for 400mts but in my type of handicapping Victorous sally props up on top.Divine Ganges is working very well and should be involved in final finish.Pygmalion may not sustain this distance.Urbano is not sighted in tracks for last 1 month.

Race6:Chief de Mission(7)-Win

Chief de Mission at this handicap is better than rest and if handled properly this aged horse can upset all calculations of younger ones.If it fails then race is between Kings Cruise and Kohinoor king.Chespeake does not impress in this set.Rest all have no chance.

Race7:Bold Brigade(6)-Win

Bold brigade is due for win,jky declared indicates all out effort by its connections hence gets first nod to beat Al jabal who may find this distance bit sharp.Southern rose does not impress.


Very bad race where except for Cabochan,Turningpoint and Arsham rest all non winners even after running for almost 2 years.Cabochan and Turning Point requires more ground and Arsham requires A Shoes.Miracle is shown in gate practise and thus gets first preference in this very very weak set.

Monday races Postponed

Hyderabad races scheduled on Monday have been postponed to Tuesday due to Bandh call given by TRS in protest against arrest of their leader K.Chandrashekar Rao .

Much will depend on how things turn out tomorrow...any untoward incident tomorrow may cast shadow on Tuesday racing as well.

Hyderabad and Mumbai 29th November

Hi all,

Following are my views for Sundays races.Trainer Prasad Raju will have good day along with Faisal Hassan and Srinivas.

Daysbest:Clever Ploy(7-6)

Good win prospects:
Alberton Star(6-10)/Royal Scotsman(9-3)

Race1:Anguna(8)/Sprint Champ(4)/Costa Mesa(3)

Race is in safe keeping of Faisal Hassan.Easy touch is the first choice of stables but in my style of handicapping Anguna comes on top,if tried can upset.Sprint Champ is drawn advantegously in innermost box,can run away to victory.Costa mesa registered all its win in winter,+ve change of shoes and jockey indicates all out effort.Standing ovation won once in maidens group and ran indifferently in higher class,+ve change of shoes reveals its connections intent to win but i feel it has tough task in hand.Dancing Harbour,Pretty Fit and Kohinoor requires A shoes.


Hospitality has best credentials but the problem with Srinivas is that no one knws when he will extend his horses.Chamatkar is nex tbest and can lead all the way.Cygnet could not handle hot pace in its last race,in this slow pace race can again upset,cannot be ignored.Hunting Bay and Retromagic requires A shoes.Al Malawi can place if any of the above falters.

Race3:Splendid Knock(2)/Flowers of Music(6)

Very hard to predict outcome of this race,above two may do well.

Race4:Alexendar Square(1)/Aspire(3)/Rose Mead(9)

Rose mead was strongly fancied by its connections in its debut run,ran in patches,must have improved now but entrusted to GOD KNOWS WHO rider and it will be foolish to ascertain that all foreign jockeys are better than indian riders.Alexender Sqaure was beaten by better horse and deserves another chance.Aspire is working well,Trainer Faisal may be on job,hence will place.

Race5:Storm Force(1)/Democracy(2)/Mr don(6)

Almost all horses have ran on Nov 2 and if we adjust weights and see Democracy comes shade better than Storm force but conventional racing wisdom suggests to back Winners rather than Expectors.Mr don is loving winter track and can place.

Race6:Alberton Star(10)/Al Zeezan(4)/Ride to Glory(8)

Alberton Star won handsomely clocking good timings,will be hard to toss at this handicap.Al zeezan is consistent performer and emerges as next best.Ride to glory will extend its best but in the end they all have to beat Alberton Star.Disco Flash is not sighted in tracks for last 17 days which is not the winning pattern.

Race7:Clever Ploy(6)-Win

Clever Ploy is top rated in this terms race and this " of the MonsoonSeason "needs to prove that he indeed deserves this title.At this weight it may just run away to victory.Maximise by default is the prime contender simply because it has displayed very good turn of foot inspite of welter weight over it.Rest all does not inspire.

Race8:Royal Tune(6)/Pure Magic(12)

Royal Tune is in rousing form and will be hard to toss however May fair girl is the one which defies all handicapping disadvantages and comes out as winner.Pure magic will place.

Race9:Royal Scotsman(3)/Shivaji(11)

Royalscotsman was moving well in its last outing,tested with Blks in gate practise and now running with blks,should win in this very very poor set.Shivaji will extend its best and can place.


Following look good to me for win.

Mr Greedy(7-2)

Low odds winners:

Kolkotta Few choices

Hi all,

Following look good to me in Todays Kolkotta's card.


Balmoral is full sister to Speedy Sprint Star,impressed in lone gate practise and can win.Kayadhu is next best.


Yuhina is the only one with some form to its credit and can pull it off.

Race3:Majestic Falcon(7)-Win

Majestic falcon is prepared well and can run away in this shorter distance.

Race4:Simply Perfect(8)-Eachway

Though long on tooth Simply perfect looks good over this distance and if there is will can upset fancied duo to Elegante and Patroculos.

Race5:Bold babe(8)-Each way

Bold babe is reject from Mumbai,can shine in this set.


Agility is cut above the rest and should complete the formality.

Race7:Solid Success(2)-Each way

Rommell has best credentials but travelling may have taken its toll hence iam opting for consistent Solid success to deliver.Bottom weighted Vignet is genuine upset horse.


Sansperil is top rated but never ran in Kolkotta.Adriana is impressive winner in Monsoon,prepared well and has best chance to win.


Recardo should not have much difficulty in providing Shroff back to back double.

Hyderabad 24th November

Hi all,

Following are my views for Tuesday races.

Race1:Cannon vision(2)/Russian mission(5)

Race for lowest rated animals.Try me today will be fancied due to consistent form,jockey.Cannon vision won a race in same category in monsoon2008,after running listless in higher categories is back to same class at almost same weight,i do get the feeling that it will be tried,hence good eachway bet.Russian mission was seem moving well in its last run inspite of going wide in final furlong,can do well.Blue magic is best suited for 1200mts.

Race2:Al Saarah(1)/Rio Grande(6)

Al saarah:Well bred,prepared very well and its final trackwork is the most impressive i have seen till date,it is clocking just 25secs for 400mts which clearly reveals its good initial speed,will be hard to toss.

Rio Grande:Took good jump,showed good initial speed and moved very well on its own in its debut run,with strong saddle assistence has very good chance to impose a win.

Orient Glory:Made run with out blks last time after getting it prepared with blks in trials,after that is now tested without blks in trials.Is it wise to bet on a horse whose trainer hinself is not sure what suits his horse best,i would not prefer it for a win.

Race3:Parineeta(8)/Fair Touch(1)

Race for lowest rated horses.Parineeta gave good gate practises with Blks clocking 51 sec for 800mts which is not the best but relatively better for this class,now running with Blks has good chance to clear maiden status.Yours mine and urs will be fancied due to jockey and its last run but in my view it is best suited for 1200mts,hence can be ignored.Fair touch was full of running in its last run,will improve upon that run and if Parineeta continues her maiden status then can return as winner.

Race4:Hariharpriya(4)/Fabulous crown(1)

Dash for cash race.Fancied duo of Zycon and Scubario are in trouble as there are few horses in this set which can trouble the best.My first option is Hariharpriya who comes top in my reckoning abd is worth each way bet.Party doll twice won handsomely but in poor company.No doubt Zycon is speedy but the fact that it is getting beaten in its final track does not inspire confidence.Fabulous crown is hiding true form and can upset.

Race5:Modest Bride(3)/Paymaster(5)

Modest bride deserves a another chance and should be able to pull it off however it has be careful with late burst of Paymaster who has displayed tremendous turn of foot and in this longer distance can upset.Secret asset can only place.


Dancing harbour,Monochrome and Manythanks are running with -ve shoes,hence ignored.Hardcore and Sprint champ will not be able to sustain this distance.Local ikon,Ravileena and Ice candy are running with exercise jockeys.This leaves us with Penumatcha and Elite prince.

Race7:Classic one(8)/Flash flares(4)

Classic one,Star Composer and Flashflares are better than the rest and it can be safely concluded that the race is restricted to this three only.Classic one is in great form,convincingly beaten Regent park which won easily on Sunday,gets first preference.Star composer almost shaped like a winner before being beaten by superior Girl of love.Flash flares last three spurts in tracks are mighty impressive and will extend its best.


Yipee loves winter track and in my view will be hard to toss in this set.Stormygladiator is running in most apt distance and emerges as next best.Stroke of luck has been finishing on well but unable to convert that effort into winning spree.Southern spice is lethargic and problematic horse,cannot be trusted.Chamatkar in this lower set is genuine dark horse even though there is an element of doubt due to top weight.

Race9:Commander Moil(1)/Golden flame(11)

On sheer class Commander moil is cut above rest and if decides to put his best foot forward then race is over.Temple bells won easily in same age group in lower class,looks difficult to me here,same is the case with King of Habashe.Goldenflame emerges as good place bet over this distance.Gables has been in tracks regular and can upset.

Daysbest:Al Saarah(2-1)

Mumbai& Hyderabad 22nd November

Hi all,

Following are my views for Sunday races.Start of Mumbai races will ease pressure on Hyd racing and local punters can expect good odds as there will not be all india betting.Trainer Satish will have good day.

Race1:Grand Party(5)-Win

Conventional racing wisdom says for races run over mile,horses which have won over 1600mts should get first preference.Zulima and Bhardvij qualify on that count but Zulima is not in tracks which is not the winning pattern and Bhardvij too is not in track and is out of class in this set.This leaves us with Kansascitymac,Grand party and Triple nine.Triple nine won on jockey merits in its last outing,looks difficult to me here.Kansascitymac is burdened with welter weight and lacks winning punch.Grand party was seen moving very very well on rain soaked heavy track in its last outing and its high time this Full sister to Classy Khaleelspride reveal her true form.

Race2:Classic ruby(4)/Hospitality(1)

Millenuimqueen is best of lot but sporting steel shoes which is not the winning pattern of its trainer,may be looking for class down.Narwhal and Fusion music will find this distance bit sharp.Olympic Crown is non winner even after 43 runs to its credit.Toledo and Kohinoor star are just ALSO RAN types.Music express recorded his last win 3 years back,almost stops after running 5 furlongs.This leave us with Classic Ruby and Hospitality.Trainer Srinivas is known to take advantage of poor fields,he is master tactian and will extend his horses only if there is good chance.I do get the feeling that he will go all out with Hospitality in this run as in last run his rider was cautioned to be more vigorous.Classic ruby ran good forward races and in this shorter distance has very good chance.

Race3:Ice Mountain(4)/Airborne Magic(1)

Airborne magic:Fancied strongly on debut,has very good initial speed,run benifit advantage and if its final spurt is true then it will be strongly involved in final finish.
Don valentino:Full brother to Derby winner Sparks,if its gate practise are any indications then it will make all run for their money.
Icemountain:I strongly fancied its chances in first run,was ridden badly thru out,now with +ve change of shoes and run benifit has very good chance to win.
Rapture of Victory:Full brother to classy Moon Flower ,prepared very very well,but going by trend that youngsters have shown till now i feel both Don valentino and Rapture of Victory will not be fully extended.
Remaining First timers does not impress.
Moheena:Was seen moving well on debut but Trainer Srinivas never ever runs his wards to true form imediately after show run.
Petruda:May take lot of time to improve.

Finally i prefer Ice mountain and Airborne Magic to dominate proceedings with third spot can be filled by either Don Valentino or Moheena.


Chiquelle has impressive career record till date,found Ave maria too hot to handle in its last run,with better saddle assistence will be hard to toss this time.Rosctock is one pace horse and in this set at best can place.Earth bender ran like a dud in winter,looks to be well prepared but lacks class and can only hope to place.Dating is the horse which will make everyone run for their money,i expect Trainer satish to be in lime light,watch out for trend earlier if Grand party or Ice mountain wins then this horse will be live force.I always maintained that Manduro does well at botton weights,in this fast pace race looks difficult.


Nandanvana comes top in contention but lack of track work and sharp distance are huge -ves.Debonaire after change of stables won well and in subsequent run on invitation day ran easy in super strong company,last run showed good turn of foot and gets nod ahead of others.Smarty Prince may be fancied due to jockey but the fact that it got beaten by Debonair at identical handicap difference cannot be ignored,failed as hot fav with same rider astride in previous runs.Trainer M V Narayan rao is having good winter season,Bentota was seen moving well in its last outing,will place for sure.Baywatch Babe is non winner till date,gives contradicting runs,can be ignored for win.Star favours will be made to run in A shoes if on job.Lucky Damsel is eternal failure and except for a win two years back has done nothing worthy .Lavendermist is not sighted in tracks after its last run.Torrestella does well in Monsoon only.Deccan Passion is best suited for 6 furlongs.


If we compare runs of all runners on November 1st we can establish that Regents park is better than Good speed who in turn is better than rest of the runners but both this runners were way behind Cygnet and Ujjaini.Cygnet thru big bombshell in last run,will run to its best potential to ward off any unnneccasary accusations.Ujjaini ran very well before going down to better True force in its last run and in my view race is restricted to this two only.I always maintained that Vijaylakh is best suited for 1100mts and hence looks good for place.


Highly competitive race.Iaepetus comes top in contention but iam unable to understand only one track in entire last month,definetely not the winning pattern.Carte blanche's last run was too bad to be believed ,tracking impressively and at this handicap is live threat to one and all.Pleasing display is not sighted in track after its last run,hence ignored.Champforever is impressive winner of mockrace and should extend its best here ,can win.Coral gables has done nothing wrong ,has beaten Champforeve at identical weight diff but i feel in that run Champforever took things easy and did not extend to its true potential.Finally it would be prudent to state that a triway finish is in store involving Champforever,Coralgables and Carteblanche .I prefer in that order.

Race8:Celestial way(2)/Messalina(6)

First classic of the season and one can safely establish the fact that it will be fought between two filles of Padmanabham Messilna and Celestial way.Messalina has been prepared for this event,impressed in mockrace.But the fact that Celestial way was entered for this race paying late entry fee makes it more interesting.Celestial way was born as Orphan foal who lost her mother at time of birth,showed tremendous temparment to over come that truama.Its manner of last victory was too good and i would give it first preference over Messilina.One of the local horses will fill third spot and that can be Kohinoor delight which displayed tremendous turn of foot in its last outing.

Race9:Cheetah He Jeetah(1)/Just be cools(8)

An upset cannot be ruled out in this race.Cheetah he Jeetah,World wide and Just be cool emerge as main contender in my view.Cheetah he Jeetah recorded an upset win in lower class 1.5 year back and thereafter ran listless in higher category,is back to where it belong and can upset.Just be cool has good initial speed and can kick on gamely till end if other runners fail to collar her.Tiara as stated earlier is one eyed horse,falls on other horse during race,cannot be trusted.Worldwide is genuine upset horse,must for JP.




Best place :
Kohinoor delight(8-5)
















Race1:The First Lady(8)-Win Romphome(3)-Place


Race3:Oh Calcutta(1)-Win Dancing Money(2)-Upset


Race5:Wings of Angel(7)-Win Redcloud(11)-Upset



Race8:Flaming arrow(8)-Win
