Hyderabad 1st Feb-->Comments and selections

Post derby races are bound to throw many surprises.Card looks very ordinary and can be avoided.

Race1:Genuis Empress(4)

Alexander Square has lost form completely,cannot be trusted.

Vijays Conquer buckles under pressure.

Genuis Empress last run can be ignored due to strong opposition,can come good here.


Whatsup has showed good turn of foot in trackswork,can upset in the very first run of its career

Galiat was interfered in its last run in stronger company,is the obivous choice for this race.

Kohinoor Thunder and Graceland will not sustain this distance.

Roma Rogue is urged in tracks for response,falls back after 6 furlongs

Race3:Home Town Hero(2)

Race is restricted to Hometown Hero and Equiliser,former has impressed a lot in final trackwork and hence gets first preference over latter who improved all of a sudden in its last run.

Cold Smile has credentials to place.

Race4:Lioness Heart(5)

Ignore Lioness Heart where due to fast ace it could not be in striking position,here the pace of race is bound to be slow and can strike in this step up distance.

Airborne Magic needs hard riding which cannot be expected from this whipless rider.

Race5:Handsome Hunk(8)

Handsome Hunk is enjoying preferred handicap reduction,gets better rider over step up distance,can win finally

Westminister was seen moving very impressively in race no 146,now runs in this lower class but weight will be stopper.

Cristiano should place.

Qinhuangdo is best suited for 1400mts.


Race7:Don Valentino(1)--Days Best

Race8:Bold Attack(10)

Race9:Kohinoor Adhira(8)

Bangalore 31st January-->Comments and selections

Card looks confusing,caution is advised

Race1:Hatchet Harry(9)
[Weights raised by 1.5kgs]

Confusing race.Brigade's Supreme is tracking well but ridden by whipless jockey who has not performed well in this season.

You are a star is working well but running after 14months and is slow starter,cannot be trusted.

Rise to Glory may find this distance sharp.

Hatchet Harry gave good forward run over 1400mts in last run in lower class,in this shorter distance and relatively weaker company of higher class can kick on gamely till end.

Jeyem has credentials to place at longer odds.

Race2:Bourbon Rock(8)

[Weights raised by 3.5kgs]

Bourbon Rock was impressive winner of lower class and in this weaker higher class can win again.

Day trader has remained non winner for 3 years after clearing maidens,has failed in same age group of lower class,known bleeder,cannot be trusted

Style of Signature is ridden by jockey who has displayed amazing capability of winning on non performing horses,this being winner only in Mysore and over 1400mts,can he do it here too???.

Race3:Czar Of Romance(2)

Tough race with many worthy contenders.

Muroi was literally flying in its last run,unfortunately disqualified,can do well but has tough set to handle.

Czar Of Romance won very easily cutting handsome finishing time and is the one they all have to beat,can be considered as days best as the odds would be very good,worth taking risk.

Perfect Soul who is final entry may not sustain

Albertino who won impressively now runs with cnb on and has paid penalty for late entry in this race


Race for lowest rated horses,best to be pick here would be Distinctive who has can come good in this handicap race.

Sareeta now runs with blks on,will try its best to shed maiden status.

Turf Fame has chance to place.

Race5:Superior Edge(8)

Superior Edge can win this time in this poor set.

Youre Chulbuli is tracking well but non winner for 2 years.

Tribal Queen gets better rider this time,can place

jewel Lady has chance to place.


Race for best sprinters at the centre,almost all horses will try their best.Klipspringer can show clean pair of heels to entire field in this shorter distance.

Silken Touch will be ignored due to stablemate Six Speed,has good chance to place at longer odds.

Six Speed is more suited for 1400mts.

Optimus Prime is highest rated,may find pace of race too hot to handle as it likes to come off the pace.

Secret punch has remained non winner for over a year

Race7:Ace Dancer (2)

Ace Dancer is class better than rest but running for first time after being gelded.

If Ace Dancer fails then Rich Celebration has best chance


Ignore Shuddering's all run in higher class,has good chance to win inspite of this whipless rider.

Superb Style won well last time but heavily penalised.

Cataraman has good chance to place.

Race9:Apple Jack(1)

Apple Jack's last run in longer distance can be ignored,earlier cleared maidens in style,wrking very well,can win.

Petite Flour runs green under pressure,top weight can unsettle it.

You are rocking is suspect over this distance

Smokeyhead is non winner.

Haute Ecole can place at longer odds.

Mysore 30th Jan

Hectic week ahead.Mysore races are tricky.One option per race is selected,will be happy if atleast 3 obliges in entire card.Extreme caution is advised.


Runs in this class for first time in its career,winner of 20-45 class,has come down rapidly in scales,this run will  prove whether it was brought down for a coup or the horse has lost form completely,worth each way bet.


Prepared very well,can strike on debut.


Gets better rider and weaker company,can strike,good each way bet.

Race4:Indian Royalty(9)

Failed fav in 40-65 class in last run,earlier was seen moving well in this 60-ab class,has great chance to upset at lucrative odds,worth each way.

Race5:Pearl Of Bangalore(11)

Last run was good forward one,has great chance over this distance,however two points are against it,first is stablemate Blues and Royals and second is possibility of connections looking for class down as it is just a ran away from slipping to that required rating,however stable mate Blues and Royal may not sustain over this 7 furlongs and in that case this can fly in final 50mts to victory,worth only if odds are above 10/1 for win and 2.5 for place.

Race6:Heavenly Divas(4)

At steady rating of 39 for last 5 runs inspite of finishing off board,now with allowance claiming jky should run away to victory,worth only if odds are above 8/1

Race7:Treasure Mountain(5)

Treasure Mountain looks good after light penalty but has to be careful with Color who has blinding speed,better to opt for place of latter if odds are decent.


Ignore last run,now can stage pillar to post victory,worth eachway if odds are above 8/1

Race9:Naughts And Crosses(8)

Review of Hyderabad Derby race day

Derby day selections of this blog failed miserably,none of the good bets mentioned did not even place.All the efforts of travelling 20kms from Bagha to Panjim to find a internet and post selections  gone in vain,infact must have caused a huge loss to followers of this blog.I really regretted my decision of stealing time from my vacation to post,atleast so many ppl would have saved lot of money.That really pained me,nothing can be done to undo that but enough care should be taken from here on.its afterall hard earned money.


Mr Glorious took a good jump,settled well in closely packed front bunch and accelerated under heavy whipping to win convincingly in the end.Gold medal tried its best but could only manage to finish second. Exclusive was fully extended but still could only finish third.Favourite Sabreen ran one paced without any acceleration.Bold Attack gave good forward run and can strike before the end of season.Swift Arrow looked least interested in proceedings.


Lovely Angel settled well in striking position till bend and made its move cleverly to win at handsome odds and completing grand double of trainer-jockey combo.Hot fav Wow o Wow struggled to settle well thru out,got drifted at bend and thereafter did not raise fluent gallop but still as a maiden,run was impressive,will win in next outing.Dancing In The Rain warmed up late,can do well.Ein Ein Ein cut fast pace and was not disgraced in this loss.


Regal Groom was hot fav,settled well and surged ahead in final 200mts but was beatem by Okai Okai Okai who changed tactics and played waiting game instead of hitting front,can repeat again.Golden Dash ran on well under heavy whipping to end up third  beat tiring Sarvagna Fortunate was way behind all the way and made its move very late ,was seen finishing on well in the end,can win by end of season.


Emerald Reef breeze passed thru front runners Rocking Racer and Our Mascot  to win in style.Ground Crew was bumped at start and therefore could not go in front,ignore this run,can win soon.


Key note lead all the way before being beaten on post by brilliantly ridden Dusty Lady.Note Kings cruise who was seen moving the best of lot.Fav Aphrodiasic struggled to keep up with hot pace.Mr Khoasteep could not hit front due to large field and very hot pace set by Keynote.My fancy Speed Striker [can any one tell what were  the odds of this horse in bookies ring and tote] who was sporting bandage legs,came out from the widest box to be up with front bunch but was travelling wide and ran out of gas,note this horse,will surely win by end of season.Stylish Chieftan just could not handle the hot pace and was last till bend,in the end was seen galloping well


Staying best won lot easily than it appeared.Dandelion tried to upset stablesmate chance,note this horse,it belongs to influential owners,till win many races.The one horse which impressed was Golden Arrow which had to shift in rail side to find room,was travelling the best of lot.My fancy Ice Barrier recieved interference twice at start and was in rear always.Thus goes the theory that MAM definetely wins a race on derby day.Fairy Emperor looked like  least interested.


Plentipotent finally found its winning ways even iam of opinion that it was not the best one.Al Sarrah ran good forward run.Garcia Marcquez was seen covering good ground to gain runner up berth.My pick Scubario was in front bunch till bend,could not do much thereon.Melody Queen should not be touched till its rating slips to 85.


Tintinabulation silenced all its critics


Brahmani was the most impressive winner of the day,came up very well from the rail sides to win.My picks True Scholar ran like a dud,this horse must be ignored from here.Prince Of Arabia was in striking position till last 200mts,went back thereafter,need to see  race report,must have suffered some setback.

PS:Btw did anyone notice A Horizontal Urge tipped for  today,won at handsome odds.BTC paid 375 for win.Mobile users cannot view side bar and hence would not have noticed that tip

Hyderabad 27th J.anuary---->Derby selections and comments

Good card has been framed for the d day.

Following three looks good.

Speed Striker(5-18)
Scubario (7-9)

Race1:Gold Medal(5)/Swift Arrow(7)

Ignore all previous runs of Gold Medal where it was seen sprinting ahead and loosing out steam in final 100mts,here it has good chance to force a win.

Swift Arrow runs with +ve change of shoes and jky,last run was prominent till last 200mts over 1400mts ,now in this shorter distance and forceful rider has good chance.

Bold Attack for long shot place prospect.

Exclusive will not be able to carry this weight.

Sabreen Princess gets better rider,previous runs suggest it needs more ground.

Mr Glorious and Onti Onti Onti are compulsive slow starter,cannot be trusted.

Kohinoor Revantha is non winner,lacks winning punch,one paced

Airborne magic has remained non winner for two season,is best suited for long distances.

Race2:Lovely Angel(5)/Wow O Wow(8)

Lovely Angel inspite of loosing whip finished good 4th to Striking in Gr3 race,working well and has good chance to win.

Wow O Wow is blazing tracks,will be hotly fancied.

Squanderers Square can place at longer odds.

Race3:Fortunate(9)/Okai Okai Okai(5)

Fortunate was seen moving very well in its last run,in this step up distance,has good chance to win.

Regal Groom has impressed in mockrace,gets better rider,but 8 furlongs race is always tough especially when there are experienced and stronger horses.

Big Boss at this weight looks very difficult for win,ideal handicap would be 54-55

Yet Again is in form,facing tough set this time,has handicap to take care of.

Ice Mountain failed in same age group.

Okai Okai Okai gets better rider and runs with XNB off,will do all the running till being caught.

sarvagna gave good forward in its last run,earlier as fav finished 30 lengths behind winner,can be ignored.

Enigma runs after long lay off with not so impressive trackwork,jky declared may use this to get feel of the track and conditions.

Allendale is non winner and will not sustain this distance.

Race4:Emerald Reef(2)/Ground Crew(8)

Emerald Reef won well last time,has very good chance to repeat.

Golden Jewel is back to its winning class,but ideal handicap would have been 58-59.

Montego Bay surprisingly has changed stables,entrusted to very poor rider,if he manages to show any zeal then this horse has good chance.

Our Mascot has failed too many times,inconsistent.

Rocking Racer needs to be heavily whipped to extract best from it,can be ignored for win.

Camacho Speed is non winner,lacks winning effort,can be ignored for win.

Ground Crew showed tremendous speed in its last run,can run away on this No False Rails Day

Silver Arnage is entrusted to weak rider yet has credentials to finish in place.

Race5:Speed Striker(18)/Stylish Cheiftan(11)

Very very tough race with too many contenders vying for honors.

Speed Striker has impressed a lot in its last win and in my view is the one they all to have to beat.

Ignore last run of Stylish Chieftan,on this D Day may strike even in this shorter distance.

Aphrodiasic is running in this class after long time,working well but top weight and large field,one mistake and there is no chance of any recovery,very difficult for win.

Bloody Mary will find this distance sharp.

Dusty lady will not be able to sustain this distance with this weight.

Kings Cruise for same age group,not here.

Key Note has been penalised,at threshold of being pushed into cat1,will run easy here.

Fine Racer has short dash,cannot be trusted as it failed to deliver in relatively easy set.

Vijay sheel is best for 1000mts.

Mr Khoasteep has won 5 in row,cut handsome finishing time,cannot be ignored atleast for jackpot.

Oru Oru Oru is hiding true form and waiting for a big coup,dont be surprised if it does on this d day.good place option.

Precisely That has failed as fav in this class,now runs without XNB,can be ignored for win.

Race6:Ice Barrier(9)/Fairy Emperor(1)

Ice Barrier has handicap in favor and can create a flutter as its both runs have been good.

Fairy Emperor won well and can repeat.

Staying The best can place.

Race7:Scubario(9)/Melody Queen(4)

Scubario in its last run was way behind till bend,started moving well when urged,has good chance to upset at longer odds over this extended trip.

Guiding Light is best suited for 1200mts,looks difficult over this distance with this weight.

Plenipotent has developed problem of shifting under pressure,cannot be trusted.

Al sarrah runs after long lay off,tends to get weakened over this distance.

Melody Queen runs in most apt distance,can upset in this set.

Race8:Shivalik Star(4)/Storm Tracker(5)

Shivalik Star is highest rated,tested in mockrace over 2000mts clearly indicating that it has been prepared for this event,can win.

Storm Tracker won impressively in Mumbai,can surprise.

Tintinabulation no doubt is classic and has proved his worth but this run may have come too soon for its comfort as just 14 days back it ran in Kol derby.

Race9:True Scholor(13)/Prince Of Arabia

True Scholar has impressed in mockrace,can do well here in this set.

Prince Of Arabia has been consistent,

Aerosmith and Ocean Side are on threshold of being pushed in cat 1.

Sheer Genuis will find this distance sharp.

Glorious View is struggling  this class

Jackpot[48 Tickets]



All the best

Hyderabad 20th January-->Comments and selections

Mixed card.

Race1:Crimson Look(2)

Confidential struggled under same rider in same age group,not in tracks though sited occasionally in pools,inpsite of hard taskmaster can be ignored for win.

Crimson look failed as fav in last run of Monsoon and trainer stated that he had no explanation for poor run,in first run of season opted to run with Ts,gave very good forward run over 7 furlongs,has good chance to win.

Hidden Power is yet to win over this distance,has earlier beaten Molla which went on to win next three races,at best may finish second.

Skandar is tracking well seems to be struggling to get form.

Race2:Rajkumari(2)--Days Best

Odalis need to shed weight,can do well in handicap not in terms.

Rajkumari in its last run could not settle well due to outermost box and interference,earlier in race no 110 was penalised more than the horse which finished ahead of it which speaks volumes of its class,can stage pillar to post victory.

Oasis vision last run was in wrong distance now runs in most apt distance,was slow in start in its last run,not sighted in tracks or pool after that run,best for handicap races not for terms.

Strides of glory runs with blks on but the pace of the race which will be very hot will unsettle it.

Race3:Silver Arnage(8)/Lady Luck(6)

Chemeli is compulsive slow starter.

Symbol Of Beauty is non winner reason being its sluggish starts and veering out under pressure,cannot be trusted

Lady Luck which lost as fav in lower class can do well in this weak set,Netto has done this before in this season.

Silver Arnage in its last run was moving very attractively thru out,purposely gave up as it was very very long in odds,has very good chance to win.

Race:4:Queens Craft(8)/Qinghuangdo(3)

Aegis has remained non winner for over 1 year,weight is stopper.

Garcia Marquez is on downslide,winner of class 1,now struggling.

Qinghuangdo is running in apt distance,will be on job,can do well.

Aarohan is running for class down.

Audicous and Bound For Glory are  struggling in this class,can be ignored.

Queens Craft was mighty impressive winner,lightly penalised ,has won a race in this class and distance, should be job,place is certain.

Winning Strides in its last run was held for room till last 200mts, surged ahead strongly moment it got opening,one gets the feeling it is best for 1200mts.

Thirteen Black is tracking well but running in this class for first time

Race5:Camacho Speed(7)/Komo Komo Komo(8)

Camocho speed has reduced handicap significantly,now runs with xnb,best suited for this distance can upset at huge odds,not worth if odds below 8/1

Komo Komo Komo has been tried with multiple change of equipments for many times,can do it now.

Ceremonious gave good forward run in its last run,now runs with blks,stable mate queens Necklace may be fancied

Queens Necklace has won in poor company,cannot sustain now.

Inner Strength is running with blks on,distance is sharp.

Race6:Power Drive(5)/Amazon Princess(4)

Tough race with many worthy youngsters competing

Amozon Princess won impressively cutting handsome finishing time and is the one all have to beat.

Ray Of Hope is well bred,finished very good second on debut to too good Dandelion,can come good over this distance.

Choclate Soldier is the only won who has won over this distance.

But in my view Power Drive is the one which can surprise everyone,it was very very easy winner in its last run.

Race7:Young Sapper(5)/Chal Bhai Chal

Chal Bhai Chal has won in mockrace,runs in lower class but has weight to carry.

Jewel In The Crown has impressed in mockrace where it was seen moving well thru out but best for 1200mts.

Young Sapper is knocking door,can come win here.

Citi Supreme will be different customer this time,can place at longer odds.

Bangalore 19th --> Short selections

Short Selections for todays races


Facing relatively poor set,can do it.

Race2:Glycys Bay(7)

None of the horses have won even in 1600mts and now running in 2000mts.Rebuttal and Glycys Bay preparation reveals it has been prepared for this event,former has tendency of getting weakened,hence latter is opted as it finished good third over mile in its last run in higher class

Race3:Hatchet Harry(5)
Running in apt distance with +ve change of shoes and jky with impressive trackworks,can provide this rider first win at this centre.

Race4:Decorated(9)--Days Best

Decorated has come down in scales rapidly,working very well,can win here .

Race5:Solitaire Royal(2)
Won lot easily than it appeared,can beat Murioi who will hot fancy.

Race6:Final Countdown(4)

Final Countdown in its last run beat Bessie which went to win by 5 lengths in its next outing,has been penalised but can repeat in this weak set of higher class.

Race7:Atlas Power(1)

Atlas power is best suited for this distance,should be able to beat Archibaldo who is lightly penalised for its win.

Race8:Angel queen(3)

Angel Queen is running in same age group,should run a bold race and can provide back to back double to trainer/jockey combo

Hyderabad and Mumbai 15th Jan selections

Card looks ordinary .Strangely we have mum races also on Tuesday

Race1:Fortunate(4)[Finished second by Head]

Both Asta La Viste and Lioness Heart won in poor company with not so impressive finishing timings,cannot repeat.

Kohinoor Revanta is non winner,unplaced in this distance,gets good rider but cannot be trusted.

Fortunate lost to Yet Again which defied penalty in its next outing,has good chance to win here.

Post race:Asta La Viste was installed as fav and won well.Fortunate tried its best but winner was too good,Custodian denied fortunate free run till last 300mts.

Race2:Alastor(1)--Days Best[Won by 3Lengths]

Youngsters race with many contenders.

Alastor in debut run impressed a lot in very strong company where it was seen moving from last position at bend to close 5th in the end in hands of work jockey,now with +ve change of shoes and jky,will be market fancy,can win

Proud Image in its debut run ran good forward run to too good Fearless Moments and Fastest Finger,working very well,should be in fighting line,if odds permit safe place bet.

Spirited was good third to Superior Dandelion and Ray Of Hope ,should be involved in finish

Post race:Alastor was installed as fav at 12/10 and further backed down to 8/10,came up well from outer draw to lead and won untroubled with jky looking back in final 100mts.Proud Image was seen moving well thru out,can enter winners circle soon.Spirited disappointed

Race3:Fairy Boy(3)[ Finished second]

Fairy Boy in its last run was sporting bandage legs,was interfered  twice,when urged was seen moving very well at fag end of race,its final fast track work with class 1 horse is very impressive and should run a good race.

Sherman Oaks has been prepared in typical LD style,should place.

Anicilary has impressed in gate practise,but will need this run.

Post race;Anicilary was installed as fav,looked troubled with headgears on,ran poorly.Sherman oaks was steady at 2.5 and won easily.Fairy Boy surprisingly chose Start to finish tactics,ran well till being caught by Sherman oaks,was available at 8/1

Race4:Classic Wish(8)--Long shot prospect [Lost]

Race for lowest rated horses.

Classic crown has failed in same class when fancied,can be ignored

Khabza may be ignored for stablemate Sugar Deal.

Rajkumar has failed as fav in same class,now gets better rider with +ve change of shoes,may be fancied but hard to deliver

Sugar Deal is non winner for 51 runs,last run enjoyed preferrred handicap reduction,yet could not win.

Classic Wish can upset.

Manipulator is enjoying preferred handicap reduction,should place.[Withdrawn]

Post race; Classic Wish was sporting bandage legs,was way behind all the time.Rajkumar was installed as fav at 2.5 and just managed to won from Khabza who could not be ridden to full advantage due to whipless rider,nano tribute was in front bunch and finished third

Race5:Elenor(2) [Won]

Kohinoor Supreme can do well only on No False Rails day not on this False rails day.

Elenor is on roll,has won 4 races on trot,now at Rating of 72 one would be tempted to assume that it would not like to proceed further to Cat 1,but it has age in favor,will try its luck in top class also.

Naughty Gal's two runs of this season need to be ignored due to slow start in first one and bumped in second one but one need to note that it has been gaining handicap inspite of not winning and at this rating of 71 will not want to proceed further to category 1.

Vijays Best in its last run ran without XNB,settled well from outermost box to be in striking position but inspite of heavy whipping by jky it just did not raise the required gallop,now on this False rails day will find hard to keep up with pace,can be ignored for win as it has disappointed too many times.

Elegant Approach has developed habit of slow start,one gets the feeling it is looking for class down.

Marquise is best for 1000mts but it has failed to impress in this class 2 plus the worrying fact is that it has not shown any spark in two Gate practises given.

Ann Arbor is looking for class down.

Desert Bloom is ridden by Venkat who is yet to get a winner,looking for class down.

Post race;Elenor was sporting bandage legs,opened at 7/10 and went upto evens,just managed to hold on from Vijays Best who was mercilessly whipped.Kohinoor supreme ended up third for the simple reason that no other runner was interested.Elegant Approach received support but as expected was slow in start and lost all the chances as pace was very hot

Race6:Montego Bay(2)[Won]

Sea Runner will not be able to sustain this distance.

Montego Bay in this set looks good and should be able to hold on till end.

Smashing Beauty cannot be trusted as it has tendency of slow start,blood vessel suspect case.

Cypress Way in this higher class can be ignored

Ground Crew is fractious,cannot be trusted.

Guiding Spirit has been prepared quietly,can upset,place is certain.[Placed third]

Post race; Montego bay and Ground Crew opened up at 2/1 as joint fav,,Montego bay received further support and was backed down to 1.5..Smashing beauty which opened at 5/1 was backed down to 3/1 and as expected did not impress.In the end Montego bay just managed to beat Ground Crew who at one staged looked like it will run away with this race.Guiding Spirit finished third and paid handsome dividend of 4/1 for place.

Race7:Vijay Keerthi(2)

Golden Palace lost whip in its last run,weight seems to be stopper.

Vijay Keerthi has done nothing wrong till date,won impressively last time,has weight to carry.

Something is brewing in Nano Storm,should not be ignored,upset chance

Post race;Vijaykeerthi was suprisingly available at evens,drifted out badly in straight course and lost all chances,took tons of money to drain.Drayton won easily providing Jockey Venkat his first win of the season.

Race8:Sheridan(5)[Lost badly]

Sheridan in this shorter distance can kick on gamely till end,final trackwork very impressive.

Vijaysheel is ridden by a rider who is yet to get a winner this season,rider is known for late burst not STF specialist

If Alastor wins then Pavan will be fully tried,has remained non winner for 16months,changed stables from K Srinivas to Zoheb Sheikh.

Street Magic will find this distance sharp.

Post race;Street Magic opened at 2/1,followed bu Power plant at 3.5,Sheridan and Pavan were available at 6/1.Sheridan was in striking position but lacked the required gallop to hit front.Street Magic justified favouritism by winning handsomely


The Best Man is running in most apt distance in its fav class,should place,can upset

Chitrangada has impressed in gate practise,won very well last time,can repeat.

Deccan Queen has failed too many times in this class.

Itsy Bitsy runs with multiple change of equipments,last run as fav finished 20 lengths behind.

Khallis Gold is working well,has  services of good jky,can do well.


Race1:Quando Quando(4)[Won at 10/1]

Quando Quando has come down rapidly in rating after winning in first race of season,has good chance here.

Race2:Bizarro(4) [Finished second]

Bizarro has been underrated,has enough class to beat two fancied horses.Neona may fold up over this distance.Centrestage won erratically in its last run.

Race3:Mahiki(3)[Lost at post]

Mahiki has been running close in all its runs,now runs with Blks on under strong rider,has no business loosing this race.Castletroy is well bred and now runs wth Ts on but has to beat Mahiki

Race4:Octopaul(5)[Finished no where]

 Blue Ace may be fancied due to its win over Borsalino but one cannot ignore the fact that it lost as fav in same class at Pune

Barringo may not sustain this distance

Octopaul is most suited to this distance,has not run in this distance for long time except for one run in Pune where it could not ride to full potential due to snapping of Nose strap,has good chance to upset

Race5:Panthera(9)[Finished second]
Rio is hotly fancied due to its good second in debut run but Panthera who is full sister to Forest Flair deserves another chance.

Race6:Myla Rose(8)[Lost,Boxed up near 200mts and recieved strong interference resulting in momentary inbalance,surprisingly was opened at 2.5]

9 Furlongs race of class 4 with 15 runners will surely throw surprises.Myla Rose preparation reveals it has been prepared for this event,can upset.

Race7:Relic Hunter(5)
Bulls Eye was squarely beaten by first timer Monza,is fancied again,looks difficult going by its last run.

Destined to Glory has won impressively cutting smart timings but in 4yrs group which translates into 5yrs up now in this new year,so repeat of that is nt possible even though it has been lightly penalised.

Ignore last run of Relic Hunter working very well and should be the one to upset

Race8:Commander(3)---Days Best

Commander was badly boxed up at crucial juncture of race in its last run,was again struggling to find opening,now in this longer distance will settle well and can win.

Machiavellinism is yet to prove its mettle over this distance

Race9:Trump Card(5)

Very bad race,Trump Card can upset,is worth small each way bet

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Kolkotta-----> Short Selections

12.00AM start is too early specially on Sundays..Could read only 4 race card 


Haystone always ran in front bunch before petering out over longer distance,now in this shorter distance and No False rails should be able to stage pillar to post victory.

Ijjal is not sighted in tracks,running pattern inconsistent,but choice of jky is big pointer and in all probability should finish second to Haystone

Eternal Instinct due to outer box will not be able to settle well,can be ignored for win at best place.

Ebony Princess will find this distance sharp


Adelino failed as hot fav in debut,was bumped at start as result of which could not keep up with the pace,then again in final 200mts was badly interfered,merits another chance.

Fire Angel seems to be a good type,working impressively,can do well


Coppelia may be hotly fancied due to its second in guineas early was runway winner of this same class but drifted out very badly,now carrying welter weight,at best place only.

Ardent And Graceful gave good rerun in its last run,will be in 1-2 .

Artimisa is the one which has impressed most in its last win where it moved handsomely thru rails to score an impressive victory,tracking very well and can win.


Borsolino should not have any difficulty in picking up this race.
