Mumbai 27 Apr Final day Final Post

Race 1: A race for horses that have not won a race all season. The most Important pointer here is that RAGING CHENB who probably has the best credentials belongs to the Jockey who is riding SHARAPOVA what a joke thats what I call daylight robbery so be careful when you pick between the 2. Phi will find this trip t00 sharp for her liking and from the rest BLACK HUSSAR apeals the most to me and will be there to trouble the best along with LATEST NEWS how a a good wieght advantage.

Tips: Black Hussar/L News/R R Chenb;;;;;; Upset: TRY YOUR LUCK (A worthy place bet)

Race 2: H'cap, Indian Horses, rated 0 to 26, which have run during the current Mumbai Meeting 2007/2008 and not placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd this says it all.Most of these horses are being prepared for Pune hence leave the race MUSTANG SALLY does have the best credentials to win but you never know the true potential of the rest of the field ARABIAN GUEST is another one . I am going to make a small eachway bet on FLYING ROCK and if Black hussar wins the 1st race then might consider a strong bet.

Tips: M sally/ ARABIAN GUEST /F Rock

Race 3: A very open sprint race where the pace will be a scorcher...Antia holds the key to the race on which horse will be tried my pick is GENERALISSIMO to win either from COVENANT or SEE THE TRUTH .

Tips: Generalnassimo/Conenant/See the truth::: Kings desire looks a tired horse best left alone.

Race 4: SPIRITUAL FLAME doesnot belong in this class and should win this race but I have no faith in the trainer on the other hand PROCYON won well last time but these set of serious contenders might prove to be tough special when the pace of race which can be be fast thanks to Morpheus and W Vegas.

Tips: S Flame(Good bet) watch the flow of money/Procyn Upset: WILD VEGAS

Race 5: Dangerous race for punters HIGHLAND FLAME is beter then ROMANTIC IMPACT who needs more time and distance however this jodi can lose to either ZEN who has the right jockey on top or DANGEROUS BELLE how is definately an upset chance here dont ignore in jackpot.

Tips: Zen/H Flame/R mact Upset: DANGEROUS BELLE

Rac 6: THE S. B. C. MILLIONTERMS - 3 years old only
A wide open race but my first pick is 4. ASCRIPTIVE who looks a nice type to win from 1. DANCING DYNAMITE who has beaten some smart horses only the handicap is a slight problem place looks certain.5. ES SIDER can upset overall a very open race besides Exuberence and R Hero anyone can win.

Tips: Ascriptive/D Dynamite Upset Es Sider

Race 7: Another open race ELEMENTTO ANGEL is down in class and has all in her favor to wini.e Jockey/Draw/Distance only question is if the conections will try her today... any which way is worth a good eachway bet to win from ARABIAN SPEED , CLASSIC STAR or SPARTA

Tips: E Angel, A Speed/C Star(place looks certain)/Sprata

Race 8: PTOLEMY is up in wieght and has to travel 2flgs more needs to improve by atleast 10lghts to win which is possible and the company is also not that flash but for a unsound horse its a big risk from a punting point of view if he wins Good luck. TULLAMORE and FULL THROTTLE are worthy contenders and can trouble the favorite the dark horse is LONE TROJAN a race best left alone.

All the best for the last day of the season Go slow today and look for value...I will have a bet on Try your luck (place), Flying rock (small eachway) Dangerous belle(place or even a small eachway),Ascriptive win and elemento angel (each way)... Procyn and R impact will be worth eating.

All the best everyone and thank you for your support.

Mumbai 26 Apr

Interesting card to finish off the season Hareh metha horse will make of break you please be careful when backing his horses.

Race 1: One of the toughest races of the day where 6 horses will genuinly match strides with each other and the 7th horse can spring a surprise beacuse on handicap terms is atleast 2kgs better then most of the runners with Antias current trend I wont be surprised if NATIVE STRATEGY wins here. RUBY ROCKET is the favorite for its connections and last victory but I dont believe she can win today if you still fancy her halve your bets even place looks highly unlikely.My first pick is WILD TEMPER who is running after a well deserved rest and back to his pet distance should account faor a thrilling finish from either CALL TO ARMS or IVANKA .

Tips: W Temper/C T Arms Upset: Native Strategy Avoid: R Rocket/T Noire

Race 2: ALGO MAS is the one to beat if ridden on merits only danger can be HIDDEN DRAGON.... the upset without a doubt is BLAZING SPEED . Leave Jewel star for the pune season.

Tips: Algo Mas/H dragon

Race 3: SNOW BLIND is an average horse at these cramped odds is not worth a risk. SENTINEL by far is the best of the lot followed by EL BUNDUQ and the race should be between the two.Please note there are a many first timers here who are well bred and are getting and airing before the upcoming pune season hence a surprise packet will be there SPARKLER is one such horse.

Tips: Sentinel/El Bunduq/Sblind

Race 4: This race doesnot look like it will be outside 1-2-and 6. THE BRAVE HEART has only age against him but today is running in a far weaker company although age is against him he is worth a eachway bet. BORN TO LEAD should be spelt born to place and place looks a certaintity and win is up to him lastly PREMIER PERCEPTION who is best suited in this race and ready to strike.

Tips: P Perception/The brave heart/B to Lead.

Race 5: If in the money NEEDFORSPEED should win if not then the race is between RAVE ON and the surprize packet ABSOLUT who in my opinion is worth a small eachway bet today.

Race 6: 3yo but ANTONIOS is tracking extremely well and will be the one to beat from YANKEE LANE ...make note of SNOWYNSKY for combinations and jackpot.

Race 7: VB but 3 horses but the on handicap 3 horses will decide the fate of the race 1-5-11.
SIMPLY PERFECT will not win if the money is not on him so march market for him. HOUSE PREFECT at this handicap and term looks a certainty and is worth a good eachway bet to win from HISHAM whos draw is the only problem.

Tips: H Prefect(Good eachway)/Hisham/S Perfect

I am going to eat the following favorites.R Rocket/J Star/S Blind
My money will be on :H Prefect/Absolut(small eachway)/The brave heart

Good luck

Mumbai 20 Apr

Go slow on on money favorites today all of them have a 50% chance to lose.

Race 1: malesh is a good judge of pace and EARL OF WARWICK should easily win here provided the intentions are good if not then RAGE OF ANGELS

Race 2: PEBBLE BEACH is above this class but is a nervous horse mumbai heat is not going to help..In my opinion the distance is also out of range today with 61kgs is not worth a bet under 2-1/2... if she wins good luck. TEMPTATION is best on handicap but the trainer is not so I will leave the race.

Tips: Temptation/P beach. Upset : Hisham

Race 3: Very interesting race the camera shy Pepe junior is well held again the race is in the top 4 runners. AVEC PLAISIR although caring top wieght will still be involved the of class is PAMPERED PRINCESS who is well over due for a win but blood vessel is the only drawback. An interesting choice of jockey on ENCELADUS who in her last outing ran unfit but with current track moments has been stripped fit Go I Shiekh.

Tips: P Princess,A Pasier, L media Upset: Enceladus

Race 4: First timers?? POMME DE TERRE has enough experience to beat this field...

Race 5: SYNERGETIC should beat MONOPOLY

Rcae 6: SPIRITUALL has only one reason to lose here and that is the draw.He is blind in the left eye and is drawn 2 with no early pacmakers can undo his chances hence at these odd be careful. BONNY LIGHT is a clear danger if the favorite fails. the dark horse is THUNDERING STAR who can win if he wants to make note.

Race 7: I am not a big fan of first timers who are on money favorites. ON MY WAY has a speedy breeding place looks certain.

Upset of the day: ENZO
Good luck all.

Mumbai 19 Apr

Ridiculous card today play safe if you can.

Race 1: the winner should come from 1-4-5-6.6. ITEM BOMB is running after 45 day with no trackwork or any recorded training is not a good sign only positive is the jockey but sounds like a risky betting prposition. 5. TRIBAL WARRIOR has the best credentials right distance right jockey but a 10yr old running in a span of 10days?? good luck.4. PRINCESS SAMERAH was not happy with the pace of the race last time today in this field and at this handicap should put her best foot forward and should win from 1. POLAR GLOW who is a live treat she is a nervous filly and with top wieght and the current heat in mumbai it can take its toll.


Race 2: Dangerous race but the result should come from 1-4-5-7.the pace of the race will be very interesting as a few of them are quite speedy. the best of the front runners is 4. BRIDGE TOO FAR was an impressive winner last time and with malcolm on the saddle has all the chance as he is a good judge of pace. 7. THE DREAMER is well placed on handicap and with anyias current intentions will fight for every inch.1. RING BEARER manner of victories have been quite imppresive and with a nice pace can easily defy this handicap.5. NASEEBDAR is the dark horse but can I Saikh do a double???both catalunya and Mr fixit will find this trip too sharp but you never know.


Race 3: Another bad race the winner should prevail from 1-3-4-5-7>the terms of handicap suit 5. MUSTANG SALLY the best but the trainer is not dependable howver place is certain bet.7. PHI is also placed well on handicap and should be right there along with 4. QUAOAR who ran a good forward race last time where he made and stayed on a very good pace and is my choice of a small eachway bet>

Tips: 4. QUAOAR (each way)2: 5. MUSTANG SALLY (place) 3:7. PHI :
Upset: 3. BU ATTIFEL

Race 4: 9flg for 3yr old is a risky proposition 3. APOLLOTINA is a average horse but running in a average set she is certainly not worth a bet under 2-1. I personally believe 4. BEACON LIGHT is the horse to beat has been prepared well and should get the better of the former.


Race 5: 1. THE HURRICANE needs another shot and is my first pick to win from Beyond belief.


Race 6: This is a tricky race 8. PATEK PHILIPPE was an expensive failure last time is tracking well enough to win but as a betting proposition it can be risky.1. TOP ACTION was unlucky last time but today will have no excuses and should run a bold race.4. RETURN OF THE KING is the horse that can upset here change in distance and equipment are in favor is worth small each way bet.


Upset of the day : RAGS TO RICHES
Good luck all

Answer To the Quiz

The job of a handicapper is to apply weight penalise to the horses according to their performances so that every single horse has an equal chance to perform.

Many of us apply this handicapping logic to see if we can pick a winner. Logically the right answer should be between Question 1 and 2 i.e a head verdict between the 2 horses A and B.

But the correct answer to the Quiz is Horse A Wins by more then 20 lengths and only one person voted for it.

If you don't believe me read Abel's Comment. the horse in questions are Rockefella(horse A) and Romantic Scene (Horse B). Both Ran in race 187 where Horse A carrying 58.5 Kgs beat Horse B who was carrying 54 kgs by 2-1/4 lgths.

In race 298 Horse A was carrying 56.5 kgs and Horse B 50Kgs to offset the previous loss and the result was Roccafella beat Romantic scene by more the 20 lgths.

Just to throw the cat amongst the pigeons there was and inquiry in the running of Rockafella in race 187 and no action was taken and in race 298 when the right money was on the horse he improved by 20++lgths and no questions are asked.

This is the sad state of racing in our country where the only weight that can handicap a horse are the MONEYBAGS that run the show.

What a Joke.

Handicapping at its best Only in India


Read this first, apply your logic and then vote for the right answer on the Right hand side if you are a serious handicapper you will love it.

In a race Horse A and Horse B have run togeather, Distance was 2000 meters, Horse A was carrying 58.5 Kgs, Horse B was carrying 54.00 Kgs . Both had Good Jockeys.

The Result of the race was Horse A finished 2nd and Horse B finished 3rd. the margin of was 2 1/4 lengths between the 2.

Lets Assume today both horses are running again, Distance is 1800 mtrs, Horse A is carrying 56.5 Kgs and Horse B is carrying 50 Kgs the standard of Jockeys is the same.

So Now do your sums and Vote for the Right answer on the right hand side, and keep in mind there are no trick questions here I just want to make sure that I am not the only idiot out here.

Mumbai 12 Apr

This weekends card being on a all wether track can make things interesting as unsound horses relish the track as its more gentle on their body... many horses will be tried and the flow of money can direct you towards the top contenders. the results should favor punters but backing the right horse is the tricky part.Smaller animals and second wind horses will do well and the inside draw will be at an advantage.

Race 1: 4. RISING PRINCESS and 6. TRIBAL WARRIOR are the top contenders here former has a advantge of handicap and age but dont know if it will be tried. the latter will relish this surface and will be the one to beat.2. CLASSIC SPIRIT is the dark horse who is back on the track and has the right jockey to guide her fortunes.

Tips: R Princess,T Warrior, C Star

Race 2: This is a very tricky race anyone can win FIRED UP who won very well last time can repeat at this handicap so can 1. DESERT DUST who is the most overlooked horse in the set.

Tips: Fired Up,D Dust , F Fury

Race 3: Very open race anyone can win top contenders are 4-5-6-8... a small eachway bet on 6. PACEMAKER can go a long way.

Tips:6. PACEMAKER ,W Tall(watch the market) Upset: Salandra

Race 4: 5. CYCLADES is facing a very weak opposition but the horse is nothing great he has very short spurt and the mumbai straight wont do justice he has the credential but ??? halve your bets or leave the race.expect an improved performance from 12. YOWZA and 6. FIRE QUEEN

Race 5: 5. ASCLEPIEION should win...1. PROCYON looks certain for place cant win after such a long lay off only dark horse is Solid black who can beat the favorite.

Race 6: bad race 11. MADAMME BIJOUX is the one to watch

Race 7: very open race if on top go home.8. MERCEDES needs a second shot at the title but this race has many contenders look for value 6. SIMPLY PERFECT is the horse of value if money is on her I am personaly going to have a small eachway bet on 2. ZUETINA and reccomend her for jackpot and place consederation.

Tips: Zutina(each way)/S Perfect/Mercedes.

Upset of the day: ABSOLUT

Mumbai 6 Apr

Bad card today watch market and chose. Good luck all.

Race 1: This is race for horses that havent won all season or maybe termed as horses that are not allowed to win all season.... The bad part is besides Sepia Tone and Latestest news none of the other runners have been tried hence the 2 will be in the money. Flying rock and and habit are not upto it... Astro boy will find this distance a bit too sharp.. Uproar has rune in far superior company and places too has a good winning shot so does Te quiro and Sharapova. Make note of Sharapova who ran with S Tone on the 16th march after a 5 month layoff finished only 8 lghts behind and with a negetive jockey on with a positive change in jockey and equipment will run a far improved race and is my choice to win.
Tips: SHARAPOVA (Good eachway)/Uproar/S Tone/L News(Place certain)

Race 2: COSMOPOLITAN will be the one to beat from either MING or SIROCO will be a close call.

Race 3: Interesting choice of jockey on ADRENALINE RUSH who is better on handicap the horses 1-2. Amyn is a very good judge of pace and if tried today the horse can topple this set. Da Vinci is better then F Flame.but the race is between 3-4-6 its a tough call and this race is best left alone my money is on A Rush or Gatravat.
Tips: Gatravat/A Rush(chance bet)/S Smashing

Race 4: This is a dirty race where the result depends on the flow of the money.... Totalitarian is far superior then Rockafella..but the best horse in the field is PERPETUITY and if sound should fight it out with totalitarian.If you dnot know the right connections leave this race.

Tips; PERPETUITY /Totalitarian

Race 5: THE HURRICANE cant lose but malesh can, play safe keeping in mind that his track moments are ok and being a 7 flg race only 3 horses can trouble him and beat him too i.e R Star/P Star/Samarkhand.

P Star is best on track and if all goes well can upset here.
Tips: P Star(eachway)/The Hurricane/Ruben Star;;; Upset Samarkhand

Race 6: looks like the well bred APTIANA is being given a good run before pune will relish the trip but will have to beat DANCING GLORY who is a nice type and the manner of victory was impressive.... ES SIDERis tracking well and will make his presence felt at the finish the dark horse is WHITE HART LANE

Tips: D Glory/Es Sider/Aptiana Upset : WHITE HART LANE

Race 7: VARUN is my pick to win from LOVE FORTY who cant be ignored today make note worth a small eachway punt.

Tips: Varun/L Forty (eachway)...: Upset: FIREY FUTURE

Good Luckk all.

Mumbai 5 Apr

Small field means more horses will be tried look for value and watch the market...once again Look for Value.

Race 1: 4. SECRET PILGRIM has all the merit to win here but the choice of jockey has put me off she is a difficult horse to handle with ruzan today it can be another sad story a stronger rider is required on her plus there are too many comman horses running how have improved a lot since they have run together. If you still fancy her then its advisable to halve your bets. There are many contenders here and the race has a open look.Horses that will be involved in the finish will be 1-3-7.1. SAARAH has improved a lot since race 156... in terms of lenghts I whould say atleast 10 lgths... Her last run in race 226 is worth watching where it was evident that she is in peak condition and ready to strike and the distance is just right for her hence should be there at the post from 3. SOCARORO who didnot have the luck of the race against sprituall where he would have finished much closer but 1600 meter is a big?? hence is my second pick.
Tips: Saarah/Socaroro/S Pilgrim. Upset : L Trojan

Race 2: This a tough race but its best to leave 1. GAME OF POWER alone was not ridden on merits last time if he wins today it wil only complicate thing for the trainer/jockey if he winn good luck. Horses that come in contention here are 2-4-6-8. 2. RETURN OF THE KING has all the right combinations to suggest his chances but change in Shoe is a ??? hence be careful and watch betting.4. LIGHTNING BOLT and antia also has a point to prove that the horse can come from off the pace hence makes him a deadly prspect and can win place looks certain..8. ARABIAN SPEED will be right there but the long mumbai straight is not in his favor and lastly 6. AMARANZA vey nicely placed on handicap has the right jockey and looks good to beat this set only age is against him but has the heart and class to win.

Tips: Amarzana (Eachway)/L Bolt/A Speed Upset: Notable runner

Race 3: The faith of this race lies between the top but 1. RAQUEL is running at wrong odds need to be over 1-1/4 to justify a win.2. WAR OF ATTRITION in my opinion is a very good horse who needs a strong rider if the jockey declared is a strong rider the the favorite will need wings to beat the latter.

Race 4: 8. PRINCESS RUBY (Good Bet)will be hard to beat if on job dangers are4. GREAT HEART and 5. KATANIA the last named if ridden by a positive jockey can create a flutter.

Tips: P Ruby/G Heart Upset: Katania

Race 5: 4. APPRECIATE will ruin the pace of this race which will make it a very open race looking at pervious runs this horse not only is fast in the first 600 but also acclerates in the straight keeping that in mind all horses will run up with the pace and the finish can be very interesting... second wind horses have the best chance here hence my pick is 3. FLAMES OF FIRE (good each way) who is well suited by the terms and draw and the pace too... to win from

Tips: Flames of Fire (Eachway)/O Gem/R Dancer.

Race 6: 2. CAVARADOSI should win but needs blinker... should win but the odds are not worth it as 1. ABSOLUTE REALITY will not make it easy for him.

Race 7: 2. TULLAMORE chances will depend on how antias horses perform earlier in the day if tried will be right there. I have a lot of time for small owners/trainers. and i believe if all goes well this race will be won by either 6. PRINCESS SAMERAH who did not have the luck of the race last time Jayantilal has done wonders withe the horse that was plodding in dalls T stable for 2 years now in this set and distance has an outstanding chance... dont worry about I Shiekh he can ride like a champion when he wants to.the second horse who has an equal chance but age is against him is 9. COLOUR OF JOY bothe these horses are worth an eachway bet.

Tips: P Sumerah(Good eachway)/C O Joy(each way) / Tullamore.


Good luck all

For All animal lovers

We humans should learn a thing or two from this Just Amazing

Reasons not to mess with children Very Funny.

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'. The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?' The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.' The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.' Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, 'Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?' Her mother replied, 'Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.' The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, 'Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?'

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. 'Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a doctor.' A small voice at the back of the room rang out, 'And there's the teacher, she's dead.'

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, 'Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.' 'Yes,' the class said. 'Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?' A little fellow shouted, 'Cause your feet ain't empty.'

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: 'Take only ONE . God is watching.' Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies . A child had written a note,
'Take all you want. God is watching the apples.'
