Bangalore 31 May

Very interesting card with many classic potential horses running in sets where the competition looks weak but some horses and prove otherwise. This can make some interesting results.

Race 1: Interesting race PHOENIX REACH is a sparingly race horse who is tracking well enough to command support but being his first run after almost 120 days been on the track only 3 times in a month poses a lot of questions on her fitness plus carrying 62 kgs... plus Ramus very low strike rate in Vb races suggest that it will pay to leave her alone if she win the good luck. I think the winner will come from 7-4-8 all three are tracking well.LIVE IT UP has the best credentials today on handicap and should account for it.ROYAL ARTIST and ROYAL FILLY if the jockey have the right intentions can make the finish interesting however I still think Live it up is a good each way chance.

Tips: Live it up/Royal Artist/Royal Filly. Note: Phoenix Reach needs this run and it will pay to halve your bets on her

Race 2: Lack of a competitive set gives a good winning chance to MISS HONEYDEW who has a run benefit and decent track work however money should come he way. Make note of SENSATIONAL BAY who has been tracking extremely well and in this set can strike if the intentions are right, Place looks a good bet and win is not out of reach.

Tips: Miss Honey Dew/SENSATIONAL BAY

Race 3: the odds on STAR PRESENTATION who is still a maiden and running in class 3 with 58 kgs have surprised me in saying that he does have a good chance to win but not and outstanding one as many runners in this set have a lot of experience if you still like his chances halve your bets or don't touch him under even money. EVER SO CLEVER has been tracking extremely well and has the credentials to beat the favorite along with SCIMITAR who looks certain in can be avoided. Make note of JERSEY POWER who is the dark horse at this handicap has a strong rider on his back and tracking well too can upset.

Tips: Ever so Clever(each way or place certain)/Star Presentation Upset: JERSEY POWER(small each way chance)

Race 4: Not very often you will see a horse that has had only 2 career starts won one and second in the other is running in class 2.It can only say one of 2 things, either the horse is out handicapped or this horse is too good I agree with the latter option. In my opinion ARCHIPENKO is a very good horse his loss to FLEETING ARROW should be taken with a pinch of salt and the tables will be turned today. However in saying that his stable mates entries worry me as both have the class to upset the chances of Archipenko. The dark horse here is ALEJANDROS he can upset the lot to get a idea watch hi run in the mock race with Set alight.

Tips:ARCHIPENKO (good bet), Fleeting Arrow; UPSET: ALEJANDROS

Race 5: If BADGE OF GOLD is on job the race is over I am sure he will be tried today. the dangers are STYLISH BAY who has a benefit of a good run and weights and JERSEY PRIDE who can never be discounted.

Tips: Badge of Gold/Stylish Bay (each way) Upset: JERSEY PRIDE

Race 6: Bad race watch the market and decide Man United who is tracking well and has realistic chance to win but Integer who seems to be a nice type and won well in Hyd looks hard to toss however wieght on a filly in heavy going is not good so be careful. The horse that has a clear handicap advantage Splendid Power who does belong to gambeling stable can swoop this set make note.

Tips:Splendid Power(Each way)/Interger Place Good(Man United)

Race 7: Hall Mark is a nice type and tracking very well hence should beat PLEASURING who reall struggled last time out.Another Destiny is tracking well enough to merit attention can upset.

Tips: Hall Mark/Another Destiny ...Avoid:Pleasuring

Bangalore 25 May

Race 1: 2. REGAL RANSOM is the favorite and running at such cramped odds is only due to the company or the lack of it. In saying so he is a average horse and at these odds is a big risk as the track movements are average too. The horse that has got my attention is 1. MARCEGALIA in race 205 had a easy forward run and matched strides till the final furlong with S of Washington.
Today drawn 2,some excellent track work under his belt has a very realistic chance. If the connections take a chance today the horse will win.Make note L Marshall rode a winner for the same connections at long odds on Act Smart in race 229 so why not today also make note he is a full brother to Steelium.

Tips:1. MARCEGALIA (eachway)(place certain), R Ransom

Race 2: Very open race but the winner should come from 2-5-9-10. SHOOT A RAINBOW seems a nice type but needs more distance. NOBLE VIEW is a failed favorite twice has a stronger rider today and will be in the thick of things. CAPRIOSKA is from a gambling stable and the flow of money will decide his faith.Lastly FLAIR QUEEN has been the best on track has failed twice again but today will be suited by the underfoot conditions specially if it rains.

Tips: FLAIR QUEEN , Noble View, Shoot rainbow

Race 3: Going by track movements and form SAFARI should not have any trouble handling this set.

Race 4: RIMPUCHE should get ther better of VALIANT BAY who needs a bet more distance SOUND OF NATURE has the potential to upset the two but L dsilva's horses rarely win first up.

Race 5: In my opinion going by trackwork MARK OF GIBRALTAR will give SET ALIGHT a run for her money the field suggest that the pace will be sharp hence the jockeys nerve will decide the faith of the race.

Tips: Mark of Gibraltor, Set Alight Upset: ROYAL AMBER

Race 6: ON A ROLL has the best credentials to win here from CELESTIAL SON . LITTLE SPLENDOUR has been tracking very well and can upset the lot. a race best to avoid.

Tips: On a Roll,C Son Upset: LITTLE SPLENDOUR

Race 7: Very open race but AGASSIZ has the class to pull it of the ovvious danger is EL GORDO

Race 8: Open race but the winner should come between VALID BID or MAFIOSO My money is on the former.

Good luck

Favorites that should win: Safari/Rimpuche/Celestial Son/Agassiz
Eachway bets: Valid Bid/Maf of Gibralter/Flair queen/Marcegalia
Upset of the Day: Act Smart

Bangalore 24 May

Go very slow today look for value bets

Race 1: OPPRIMO is the favorite by default due to lack of company however he seems to be an average horse and it will pay to stay away if he is running under 2-1 as the track movements are very average.Keep your eyes on CUTE STYLE who will find this distance a bit too sharp but has tracked well. GRIS RAPIDE is better the the favorite however I am not comfortable with steel plate on N Darashah horses. A Race best left alone

Tips: Gris Rapide,Opprimo Upset: Cute Style(Place looks good)

Race 2: An upset cant be ruled out here however the horse to beat is the speedy LOTUS LEAF who is a full brother to the Speedy Crocodile Hunter the jockey is my only worry.make note of SOLITARY CHAMP who has tracked very well along with ACT OF DUTY but both have negetive jockeys. PERFECT ANALYSIS needs more distance.

Tips: Lotus Leaf, S Champ(small eachway), Act of Duty

Race 3: HILL OF GRACE should tackle QUEENS GUEST however make not both horses are carrying 61kgs and are giving wieght to underperformed horses, the ones that stands out on track are ROYAL ZEN and BID FOR GLORY both are in reciept of 9kgs and it is always difficult for a 3yo to give another one 9kg or 12lengths which can be a lot.

Tips: Hill of Grace, Royal Zen,Queens Guest Upset: Bid For Glory

Race 4: Very interesting race with a open look but the terms of the race seems to suit STAFIRE the most and she will be the one to beat and is worth a good eachway bet. the danger is from VANQUISH who is a classy horse but very inconsistant and has only won one race so far.The Dark horse is RENASCENT

Tips: Stafire,Vanquish Upset: RENASCENT

Race 5: KIARA should not have much trouble to tackle this set however if in a galloping mood TOP OF THE CLASS can topple the favorite. CIMARRON can be condidered as a place prospect.

Tips: Kiara Upset: Top of the Class

Race 6: This is a very open race and picking a winner very difficult as every single horse has a chance I personally like EQUIDAE to win from VIJAYRATH who has been tracking extremly well but from a punting point of view a race best left alone.

Race 7: The race is between ROYAL HERO and CHAR CHAND the latter is place well on Handicap.A RUN TO REMEMBER is the dark horse and should be considered for jackpot.

Tips: Char Chand,Royal Hero Upset: A RUN TO REMEMBER

Days Best: Kiara
Double: Kiara/Stafire
Treble: add Equidae
Favorites that should win: Kiara/Equidae/Lotus leaf

Upset of the day: PLEASANT PRINCE

Bangalore 18 May

Race 1: Very open race 11. ORANGE ORCHARD looks best on track and handicap but the connections are not dependable hence give it a miss.4. PRAYATNA did not have any luck last time today the drop in class and positive jockey will see him in the fray however in my opinion her stablemate 1. NON STOP CANNON is a better horse and I wont be surprised if he raises a few eybrows.7. MISS MARVELOUS is my pick to win here last run was impressive jockey change is positive and trackwork suggest her fitness.

Tips:Miss Marvalous,Prayatna Upset: NonStop cannon

Race 2: Too many first timers however DIFFERENT OPINION stands tall and will be the one to beat

Race 3: the race is between MIGHTY HEART and GRAND MADAME and the former looks better of the 2 . rest of the field will just run

Race 4: A race best left alone however if SPICY STAR the race is over watch the market. LUMINOUS GOLD is tracking well enought o merit support along with SHES SPECTACULAR .

Tips: L Gold, SHES SPECTACULAR Upset: S Star

Race 5: BORN BEAUTY is the one to beat the danger can come from BEE THE STAR but the former looks better for an upset dont llok beyond FIGHTING STAR who has the class and has been putting some decent track work for his comback after 7 mths.

Tips; B Beauty,Bee the Star Upset: F Star

Race 6: Beautiful race where all horses have a very good chance my pick by prefrence and track is DARE DON , JET FIRE ,OUR LITTLE SAVAGE Upset: VIJAYRAAJ

Race 7: Bad race but GARA FLUID is the on to beat.Also watch out for SPLENDID GLORY can upset at long odds.

Race 8: An upset cant be ruled out here WELCOME BACK s well placed on handicap and should get the bettoe of Wondersmile however he wide draw can unsettle her and will need a lot of luck to win.but the problem is I cant decide on which horse can do the trick but STONE OF DESTINY or ARTIC BLAST are serious contenders and a small eachway bet on the former is my tip.

Race 9: POWERFULDREAMS is my firt pick to beat DOCK OF BAY rest of the field is well handled.

All the best.
