Good luck for the final day of Pune hope it is fruitful for all including Myself.
Race 1: Today is the best chance for the THE RIGHT MAN to win only problem is the jockey who has not won a race for a long time at worst should place from AMBER CAT however due to the last 2 runs its hard to back her hence SECRET AGENDA is my second pick however with Hamir Singh it is worth to not that Lagad tries all his horses and the fact that he has accepted H Singh although he could have put any better jockey on top means one of 2 things end of season gift for the jockey who knows the potential of the horse or just another run I am going for the first option and am going to back him eachway as most jockeys in this set are very average. ARABIAN GUEST is the upset if he takes a level jump.
Race 2: As both 4 and 6 are interlinked its ard to judge which one will be tried however HIGHLAND GLORY is the better of the 2 but will pay to watch market trend. My first choice here is STAR LUXURIOUS who has been unlucky all season but has enough experience to win today. COURAGE UNDER FIRE is the dark horse.
Race 3: ABSOLUT looks very well prepared to win this race unless Nagad goes with another horse however he has to beat the improving MR GREEDY . The dark horse here is MUBARRAS who needs and has a strong rider and can upset or place at long odds.
Race 4: CLARION CALL is a good horse with a lot of prepwork and mock races but it is still her first run of the season hence you never know however is the one to beat but watch the market and halve your bets as you never know.the danger here is BLADE RUNNER who has all in his favor today and is my betting proposition for a eachway bet. GLOBAL SPIRIT will relish the step up in distance and is the dark horse can upset.
Race 5: First run for 2yo,s best left alone however Katraks 2yos are alway in a forward condition.
Race 6: BALTHAZAAR is the false fav here will be lucky to place in this set.I personally believe the race is between 1-2-6-10. Because Lagad has 3 runners its hard to put your money on AVEC PLAISIR as you never know which horse will be tried however it will pay to include her in combinatin bets.Of 2-6-10 My first choice purely on handicap and draw is SCHUBERT who will be one to catch but I am going to put my money on ENAKSI who is worth a eachway bet and can swoop across this set if the jockey can handle it. MAJOR ROBERTS is the dark horse and can upset.
Race 7:odds of 35/100 are wrong on YANA who has done nothing wrong so far however with better assistance in the saddle has to beat COTSWOLD ARMS and RUBEN STAR who is only my second choice because I am not sure if he will stay the trip.
Race 8: Very tough race however DANCING GLORY is the one to beat from ALGORITHMS who is running after a long layoff however follow the flow of money. I honestly believe that there is going to be a upset in this race and horses 1-5-8-14 come into contentions. CALLING THE SHOTS is the dark horse at this handicap and is worth a eachway punt. I am personally going to back her along with ISHTAR .
Days Best: STAR LUXURIOUS
Friday, October 24, 2008
Race 1: If The jockey can handle it JOLTEON should win again if she fails then FIRE QUEEN will be the one. Make note of KING OF THE RING has the best speed in the race if on job will be right there and can upset.
Tips: JOLTEON / FIRE QUEEN Upset: KING OF THE RING
Race 2: ELEMENTTO CODE is given the chance should taclke this set well and is my first pick to win from ARISTOCRATICAL who is running the right distance today.However I personally am going to have a eachway bet on FRENCH KISS who is running well below her class and if on job today will leave them standing.
Tips: ELEMENTTO CODE / ARISTOCRATICAL Upset: FRENCH KISS (My eachway bet)
Race 3: XIAMEN is in the best form of his life and will account for it in this set however there are a few gamble horses in this set but everyone will have to beat the former. BLAZING SPEED is the obvious danger if on job. ARABIAN PRIDE is the dark horse might find this distance sharp but can upset if asked to.
Tips: XIAMEN / BLAZING SPEED Upset: ARABIAN PRIDE
Race 4: The race is between the top 3 my first pick is IKARIA to win from TIGRESSE NOIRE who is the horse to beat.
Tips: IKARIA / TIGRESSE NOIRE
Race 5: When the faith of the fancied runners is in the hands of apprentice jockeys it hard to have any confidence hence my pick is. THE BRAVE HEART who is drawn well enough to keep the rest honest. HERE COMES THE DON is the danger and can strike if the pace is fast.
Tips: THE BRAVE HEART / HERE COMES THE DON
Race 6: Tricky race and a gamble on either 2-4-7-9 is possible hence will pay to watch market moovers.My first pick if on job is PERSIAN POWER who is hiding true form to win from CHARLIE PARKER on whom I will be having a small eachway bet today. Upset here is UPROAR who if asked can put his best foot forward.Overall a bad race hence eachway bet on any of these 3 is worth it.of the lagad horses F defensor is better unless he thinks otherwise
Tips; PERSIAN POWER (small ew)/ CHARLIE PARKER (good Place) Upset : UPROAR (small Ew)
Race 7: ROAMING FAME is first run after being gelded will have to watch and see not my cup of tea.My first choice is ALOHAMORA to win
Race 8: SWEPT AWAY should easily tackle this set is the intentions are right. WILD TORRONAADO should easily place can upset.
Tips: SWEPT AWAY / WILD TORRONAADO
Race 9: ROYAL CROWN is my first pick to win from MOONSTORM how ever if ENZO has his galloping shoes on he can upset.
Tips: ROYAL CROWN / MOONSTORM Upset: ENZO
Race 10:This race will be a nightmare for punters and is best left alone I will be making 2 eachway bets here. CAPTAINS ZONE / JUST BLESSINGS . from the others TE QUIERO and GOLDEN KEY also have merit.
Tips: CAPTAINS ZONE / JUST BLESSINGS
Days Best: XIAMEN / ALOHAMORA / SWEPT AWAY
Good luck all and let the ring be a good indicator today.
Sunday, October 19, 2008
Race 1: 60% of the horses are from the lagad clan hence hard to judge which horse will be tried FIDEL DEFENSOR in my opinion is the best of the lot however make a choice in ring FORCE OF LAW on the other hand showed a lot of improvement in her last run and has showed some zest for racing is my first choice and is worth a good eachway bet.
Tips: FORCE OF LAW (Good eachway) FIDEL DEFENSOR
Race 2: same situation here with Lagad framing the race It will pay to leave this race as HIGHLAND BOUNTY has proved to be a vey average horse and the fact that GIANNATASSIO is running after a long layoff with really no valuable trackwork to his name and the fact that Malesh has not accepted to ride him suggest its a prep run for the upcoming mumbai season.of the lagad horses FESTIVE LIGHT is the better one but overall this race is best left alone or a small place bet on KATANIA can be a safer option.
Race 3: very interesting sprint my first pick here is ALGO MAS who has the best credentials to win from ELEMENTTO ANGEL the dark horse P Perception.
Tips: ALGO MAS / ELEMENTTO ANGEL Upset: PREMIER PERCEPTION Upset: ELEMENTTO ANGEL
Race 4: DEVILITTO is runnig for the first time hence hard to comment track work does suggest he is a good horse but I am going for BLUE JAY who has done nothing wrong so far to win from GOLDEN KINGDOM . the dark horse here is RUBIDIUM can upset at long odds.
Tips: BLUE JAY (good Eachway)/ GOLDEN KINGDOM (good place) Upset: RUBIDIUM .
Race 5: It will be a tragedy to see SET ALIGHT lose in this set.
Race 6: The faith of this race is between 2-4-7. My first pick is however since the jockey of 4 and 7 are interlinked with the owners of 4 it will the question of who will be tried hence watch the market close to race time. DANCING GLORY is a very smart horse and can upset here will place by default.
Tips: BLUE MOUNTAIN / DANCING GLORY Upset: SURAJ
Race 7: Very open race but the winner should come from 1-2-5-7. HOT TALENT belongs to a gambeling owner if money comes his way he will win hence watch the market and decide PURE DEVOTION is a good horse with some problems and running after a long layoff however trackwork and jockey suggest that the horse is fit enough to land the spoils and will be in the to 3. TOMMY CARMICHAEL has been hiding true form today running amongst his caleber of horses will be the one to beat. CAN CAN is the dark horse and is well perpaerd can upset at long odds and cant be ignored.
Tips: HOT TALENT / PURE DEVOTION / TOMMY CARMICHAEL Upset: CAN CAN
Race 8: Looks to be a straigh fight between 1-2 and 6. My first pick is 6 NARA purely on handicap and the prep work however I am going to have a punt on 2 WINNING TREAT who can win when asked to.
Tips: NARA / WINNING TREAT(eachway)
Eachway bets: FORCE OF LAW /Algo Mas/ BLUE JAY / DANCING GLORY / HOT TALENT /
Days best: BLUE JAY / FORCE OF LAW
kaichi: above 2 and HOT TALENT / ALGO MAS
Saturday, October 18, 2008
Race 1: Bad race to start with as 50% of the runners belong to the lagad clan by process of elimination horses 5-6-7 and be scratched and of the rest which donkey is better then the other is a big ?? I am going for consistency rater then form as it means no value in this race hence my fist choice is LATEST NEWS who at worst will place from MYPETHONEY who has her best chance to win here in this very weak set. Make note of CAPTAINS ZONE who has done nothing so far but is for the first time running amongst his peer's his fitness is good and if you see the horses he has run with and also the fact MK Jadhav has had to un performed bolts from the blues in such races (P Zone and The Giant) this horse cant be ignored purely because of the company today and the introduction of blinkers suggest change in tactics hence is worth a each way punt.
Race 2: Very open race and any horse can win best left alone however the horse that has the best chance here is EXPENSIVE AFFAIR who will be suited by the amount of fast horses and wont need to hit the front which will give her the best chance from MASTER PLANNER who can spring a surprise if allowed to. Make note of SUMMIT who can upset here and should easily place.
Race 3: Of the 9 runners 5 belong to lagad once again hence its hard to judge which one will be tried I believe FOREST NATIVE will be is first preference and if so will be the right there however ARISTOCRATICAL is the one to beat. Make note of OPTIMIST can upset and should be considered in combination bets.
Race 4: BOURBON QUEEN is a honest horse belonging to a honest trainer however start to finish tactics are the only reason she finishes on board as she seems to be one paced hence at this odds its hard to have a bet on her if she win good luck but i find it very un likely I have narrowed my search to 3 horses 2 because of jockeys and track work and 1 because of class. THANDA who was tracking very well this season was failed gamble due to choice of jockey and is the horse that will show a lot of improvements due to the jockey factor and will be right there. STATJFORD who looked under done earlier now looks well prepared and in my opinion is a very good horse hence my first pick. The horse I believe has the class and is totally over looked due to the jockey factor is KNIGHT OF WINDSOR only question is will he be on job and is worth a small each way chance.
Race 5: Mockery of horse racing and things will get even worst if he loses as in horse racing anything can happen as the rest of the Field has nothing to lose and can spoil the pace of the favorite.The fast pace of this race will suit 2 horses SIROCO / FANTASTIC FURY either of which can place and MAYBE cause an stunning upset
Race 6: This race is a dash for the line and my first pick ISHTAR who need one more chance to win from TOP ACTION who is the live danger to all provided naredu decides to go against N Lalwani.the upset is STELLAR AFFAIR today if she hits the front and the jockey can handle the pace will win,
Race 7: On Paper Nitrous cant lose but 3200 meters with 59.5 kgs and W smith is a long way specially when you consider that Flashing Flame, is in receipt of 10 kgs over 16flg is a lot of weight to give which approx equates to 25 lgths however in my opinion Flashing Flame is over raced and wont stay the trip which leaves the race to a horse that will stay all day and is the only danger to the Favorite and will make the finish very interesting hence Nitrous is not worth the risk under evens.
Tips:Silver Tern Chance bet.
Upset of the day: Don't Be Silly
Friday, October 17, 2008
Race 1: Applique a 3yo filly having her first start wide false rails with 62.5kgs is never a comfortable bet being a VB she can win but not wortha risk at these odds. My first pick is Winning Attitude who has been down in class and well prepared at this handicap can strike.Beautiful Blondie is one to look out for is a good horse whos only problem is the start if today she takes a level jump she will be right there which is likely as it is evident form a amount track moments.
Race 2: Senna should have no escuses today down class and running the right distance should account for a win Wolf is well rested and looks to be the only danger.Mahseer is the dark horse can place or upset.
Race 3: Hard to judge the race when a horse with no record runs as favorite.
Race 4:A very open race Southern Chieftan who has the class to beat this field is running after a long layoff hence my first pick is Mazeppa who is very well suited by this distance and will be a live danger to all and is wortha eachway punt from Superior Surprise and Mystic Star who is the dark horse here.
Race 6: Very open race and an upset cant be ruled ou my first choice is the well rested Snap Dragon who if handled well by the jockey is the one to beat.Ansonia had a good forward run too and drawn 4 can spring a surprise.On A Roll looks best of the fancied runners.
Negetive bet:Silken Lines
Sunday, October 12, 2008
Tips for Pune 11 Oct.
Race 1: Its hard say how Sentinel will perform today since its his first run after being gelding as per track movements he looks good but is hard choice to have a bet on.Alohamora is tracking well and today drawn 2 can runaway from this field however make note of the very well bred Paper King who has been tracking well and can show reversal of form.
Race 3: Very open race where Swahili who seems a nice type is running after a long break is well prepared but hard to say how it will perform after a 7 month break. of the others horses 1-2-6-7-8-9 all have a chance.I have narrowed it down to the bottom 4 fillies.Dangerous Bellewho finished very nicely and looks to have come to hand will relish the step up in distance and is a live treath to all.Inch Perfect who got robbed of a win the stewards room can make ammends today is running in a different set.Oh So Romantic would have been my prefered choice but the horse has had one spurt and been on the threadmill once since the 15th of august hence is hard to judge the fitness of the horse if she is fit she will win.Finally Splendid Monarchy is a horse that has drawn my attention for the following reasons was entered in 4 races on the weekend of which 3 races were Class VI handicap and one terms race and the connections have decided to run her in a terms race which is much tougher.You will rarely see H Daji tracking his horses that often well after all this effort there has got to be something cooking for this full sister of Hugo make note I am going to take my chances and have a eachway punt on her.
Race 5: Dancing Diva has been well prepared and rested with this event in mind and should win today from
Race 7: Wahy manner of victory was too good last time has go a class to class penalty for the win but will still be the one to win on the other hand Sea Princess who was looking under prepared in her last run looks to have been fine tuned for this race and is my fisrt pick. Since I dont back favorites I am going to have a small eachway punt on Misschevious Trot who has beaten Wahy giving her 10 kgs and is today on level terms with her just on that merit she can upset if she is fit.
Race 8: I think the race is between 1-5-9. My first pick is Brad to win
Saturday, October 11, 2008
Todays Small card of 7 events has more then a open look as every single race is very compititive.
Race 1:to start the Day with a VB race is always a bad sign. In my opinion every single horse has a fair winning chance however how many of the 8 horses are on Job is another question my first choice is Princess Samerah even with I shiekh stands a very very good chance to win from the very well prepared Acceptance . In all honesty in this race there is nothing like a safe bet hence the race is best avoided.Firecracker is the youngster in the pack and if the jockey can handle him he will upset and is worth a small eachway punt as N Lagad is the only trainer that tries all his horses.
Race 2: Being a Vb race There are 5 3yos whos true potentials are still un known in my opinion 2 of the in my opinion 1-4-5-9 are all un tapped potential and should finish ahead of the rest. I am going for a outsider Winning Treat who looks to have come to hand nicely will be suited by the 7flg and can win here or at worst place at long odds from Arks Angel who belongs to an unpridictable owner. Horses 5-9 can also sspring a surprise.
Race 3: Stellar Affair will be the horse to beat today if the jockey can handle the pressure the only danger is Zarzaitine who has now come to hand and is a danger to one and all and will be the one to look out for . Snow Blind in my opinion is a false favorite who won last time when no one else seemed to be interested to is a different kettel of fish and will find it difficult to sustain here hence avoidable
Tips:Black Sapphire (days best)
Race 5: Toughest race of the day where any horse can win luck will play a major roll here My first choice is Red Indian who has everything in his favor if the intentions are right to win from Star O'war who has been hiding true form fo a long time today drawn 3 can runaway from this set and is worth a eachway punt.Pillatus won well last time however is running in a span of 7 days plus is a horse that never runs two consistant races hence avoidable. The upst horse here is Born To Lead that cant be ignored today the connections have opted to run her in a higher as she is not a wieht carrier dont ignore and a small punt can go a long way.
Race 6: Babeinthewoods on jockeys judgement looks to be the one to beat from Onus Probandi who looks well perpared.I have ignored Sierra Vista due to the jockey if she wins good luck. I am personally going to take a small chance on Tapis as a eachway bet.
Race 7: Liberty Speaks is up in distance and up in wieght hence avoidable however the horse wont have a problem staying the distance,Lil Miss Sunshine won well last time but beat Jhonny Bravo, I still have my doubts on her staying the trip hence avoidable and is the false favorite. My first pick here is Equality who does belong to gambeling owner but is very well place on handicap to win watch the betting on him and decide.Mountain King, last win was very impressive and can repeat.Cavaradosi also comes into contention due to malesh's judgement. Over all a very tricky race hence I am going to eat L Miss sunshine and let the best horse win. I will be having a small eachway punt on Hishamwho can upset on basis of handicap dont ignore.
Good luck all
DAYS BEST: BLACK SAPPHIRE
UPSET OF THE DAY: STUD OF GOLD
Friday, October 10, 2008
Race 1: If track movements has any merits then 12. FIREY BUSINESS has no reason to lose here from 10. GET GORGEOUS who is a live danger to all. 4. EXECUTIVE SPIRIT is the dark horse that can upset.
Tips:12. FIREY BUSINESS /10. GET GORGEOUS Upset:4. EXECUTIVE SPIRIT
Race 2: 12. DARE YOU DO should win at this handicap.1. ARTIC PRINCESS is the dark horse
Race 3: 11. SON OF FORTUNE is my first choice as a eachway bet to win from 10. SPLENDID GLORY who is ready to strike. The dark horse here is 4. GUN ROCK has a positive change in equipment and jockey and can upset.
Tips;11. SON OF FORTUNE /10. SPLENDID GLORY Upset: 4. GUN ROCK
Race 4: I think this race will be a straight fight between
1. LOCAL WARRIOR and 4. SAPTASHWA I prefer the latter to win but it will be a toss up.
Race 5: 8. TRUE CONFIDENCE looks to be the only danger to 1. ROYAL HOST who will get no favors with the wide draw and 62.5kgs
Race 6: 5. SEASONS GREETINGS looks ready to strike and if on job will be the one to beat. from DARKTAN
Race 7: AMBIENS is my first pick to beat 7. FANAA whos wide draw is the only draw back. the the dark horse is 10. SMART N SPECIAL
Race 8: BERKLEY SQUARE is the one to beat here and the only danger looks to be CARTOUCHE who has been tracking very well. Make note of
NANO BLUE as the dark horse who can upset dont ignore in jackpot.
Race 9: Open race but my first pick is DOUBLE EMERGE but the horses I think can upset at long odds are either AMELIA CORDELL or MOUNT ROYALE .
Wednesday, October 8, 2008
Race 2: not much to go by here due to Ramu factor and not worth wasing time however GIFTOFACHIEVEMENT is the one to watch should at worst place
Race 3: WILE WENCH if on job should win here
Good luck all

Review of THE NANOLI STUD PUNE DERBY (GRADE 1) (Terms, Indian Horses, 3 years old only at the time of starting.) (About) 2000 Metres.
1)Antonios, 3y bc R (56) Glory Of Dancer (GB) / Twin StarBy : Portroe (USA)Stud: Nanoli StudTrainer: S S Shah
In my opinion a very talented horse started his campagn in April and won uninterested by 5 lengths purly on class.Well rested till july when brought back on track and rushed into preparations for the THE F. D. WADIA TROPHY 1400M Race 70 on 17th Aug where a ran green and looked underdone finished just ahead of F Flame at level terms where F Flame had a benifit of a run and finished 5lths behind Devine conceding 3 kgs. on handicapping terms he was 9 lghts inferior to Devine and on level terms with F Flame.was rushed in running THE GENERAL RAJENDRASINHJI TROPHY (GRADE 3) in a span of 13 days (which is a very short span for a horse in between race 91 on 30th Aug lost D Dynamite in the Stewards room conceeding 8 kgs to him but on paper beat him by 1 3/4 lghts hence on paper D Dynamite is 8 lgths superior however since his run was in a span of 13 days and now well rested and prepared with a stronger rider (malesh) who should be riding him in the derby expect a improvement of atleast 7-10 lenghts after this race.
2) Autonomy 3y, bg Razeen (USA)/All Heart Steinbeck (USA)
Owner/s:Mr. Jaydev M. Mody rep. J. M. Livestock Pvt Ltd
One of the best 3yos in the country and should be know as one of the unluckiest in his crop is the only horse to beat Set Alight and Red Romeo on level terms. After a 7 month layoff ran THE S. A. POONAWALLA MILLION (GR.2)TERMS - 3 years old only 1600 mts with 60 kgs and lost to F Ace by a wisker conceeding 6kg which on level terms means he is superior then F Ace by atleat 9 lenghts concedering it was his first run compared to F Ace's 3 rd run an improvement of 5-7 lenghts is expected.
3) Dancing Dynamite 3y, dkbg Glory Of Dancer (GB)/Double WishSir Bruce
Owner/s:Mr V. N. Babu
Should run Favorite in the derby has nothing wrong so far is probably the only horse that has run all his races well prepared which gives him a negetive chance in the derby as others have room for a lot of improvement.won the THE P. HADOW TROPHYA Handicap for Horses rated 60 TO 86 over a mile beat the under prepared Aquadizic well and was the best prepared horse in the set the beaten by Antinos on paper giving him 8 kgs over 1800 once again ran very well prepared and proved to at least be 8lengths superior then Antonios on the day. Will handle the trip well but I dont think the horse will improve any further from last run as he has been at his peak.
4) Flaming Ace 3y, chg China Visit (USA)/PrevlenceRazeen (USA)
Owner/s:Dr M. A. M. Ramaswamy
Another horse that has reached his peak, Beat Autonomy who was running after a 7 month layoff but on level terms and with benefit of a run Autonomy looks atleast 16 lenghts Superior.
5) Rising Hero 3y, bg Storm Trooper (USA)/Naval Guardian Polish Navy
Owner/s:Mr R. S. Mehta
Not upto this class but will not disgrace himself in the race if you take D Dynamite as a yard stick he is only 15lths behind with room for imporvement and can finish on board.
6:Phenomenale 3y, dkbf Montjeu/ContrarianMujadil
Owner/s:Mrs Villoo C. Poonawalla, Mr J. K. Rattonsey & Mr Hoosain S. Nensey
One of the most talked about horses in current time only raced twice and can improve won the september handicap in style however lack of experience can go against her chance looks highly unlikely to spring a surprise maybe mumbai but keep in mind her timing of 1-38.74 is the best of the lot.
In my opinion the top 3 horses will be the to 3 contenders. Antonios showed a improvement of 7-10 lenghts after his first run and can improve a further 7 lenghts with malesh aboard and good rest. F ace who reached his peak when beating Autonomy showed a improvment of 9lths since first run if you compare Divine as a comman horse hence Antionis can sho a improvement of 17 lengths since his first run and jockey factor which is a 6lths improvement over F ace.As explained Autonomy at derby time will be atleast 16lths better the F Ace hence 10 lenghts better then Antonios.As explained D Dynamite was 8lths superior to Antionios who can show an improvement between 7-10 lths since that last met and D Dynamite reaching his peak it is possible that Antoniois will beat D Dynamite once again on level terms. Hence Par mishap or bad luck Autonomy should not lose the derby and Antonios will follow him home with D Dynamite and PHENOMENALE.

Good luck all todays card doesnot show a lot of value but that does not mean that its going to be a favorite day.
Race 1:Typical VB race but 2. SUDDEN IMPACT stands tall provided the connections try their other horses but he will have to ward off the challange of the big hearted 6. CHARGING RHINO over all i will be leaving the race as anything can happen
Race 3: Any of the 6 horses have a chance here but 1-2-4 appeal the most to me.My first pick is 4. NAME FOR FAME who finished an un interested 4th first up and since has been prepared very will to win from 2. HANDSOME RETURNS who will enjoy the step up in distance. For Jackpot purposes dont ignore 1. CHIOS who can upset after the mock race against red romeo was moving very very well.
Race 4: Too many first timers hence avoidable however 4. SARJERAO has enough initial speed and experence to win here from 7. EXCELLENT GIFT who will be a force to recon with as blinkers will be right for her.2. EMPIRE MAKER is bred for speed can upset make note.
Race 5: 1. GRUEZI is definately the horse to beat here and should break her loosing streak today.if there is a possible upset here then dont look beyond 6. TIGRESSE NOIRE who has improved a lot and besides the jockey every thing is in her favor make note.
Race 6: this is a very interesting race but the winner should come from 2-3-4-7-8.My first pick is 7. RAGS TO RICHES who has the right jockey on board to win from 8. OPERA ROYALE however please make note both these horses belong to gambling connecions and the flow of money in the ring will be the right indicator.2. LIL MISS SUNSHINE has a fair chance however I have my doubts on staying the trip with 61kg as her breeding is not for stamina if she wins it will be class that will make the difference.4. STRIKE IT RICH is the dark horse and will enjoy the step up in distance can upset.
Race 7: Last race of the day will be dominated by Antia specially if he has a winner earlier in the day.My first pick is 7. CARAMEL to win from stablemate 5. LIGHTNING BOLT .
8. LOVELY FEELINGS is the dark horse that can win again.
Upset of the day: STAR GIRL
Saturday, October 4, 2008
Tips:4. SILENT PRESENCE 5. FIERY FORTUNE
Race 2: 1. EXPENSIVE AFFAIR is the name that says it all will run a brave race in 5flg but there are 5 horse with equal or good initial speed which can once again see her run shy at the post.I am going for horse that run off the pace in this set as all 9 horses can win which is a rare sight in indian races.I decided to pick between 3 horses that will matter at the all important end i.e. 3-7-8. My first pick is the under performed 8. NASEEBDAR to win from the inform 3. PARIS HILTON . the dark horse here is 7. THE REBEL who won unfancied last time which is a rare occasion for R Khan horses today he looks prepared and has enough class to win if asked to.
Tips: 8. NASEEBDAR 3. PARIS HILTON Upset:7. THE REBEL
Race 3: Althoug this race looks to be amongst fancied runners they all have to beat the well prepared 2. FOREST NATIVE who with the introduction of blinkers will be there at the finish.1. YAAN should have won last time but not sure the connection will be happy with the odds. 4. SHAYARA is the surprise package and will keep them honest.
Tips:2. FOREST NATIVE /1. YAAN Upset: 4. SHAYARA
Race 4: cant understand the odds on 7. PILLATUS who is running after 10 months and only 1 recorded spurt in the past 8 months if he wins good luck.1. SPICA on the other hand is a horse that likes to come from the outsde and today drawn 1 will not help the cause with 60kgs on her back hence avoidable. I believe the winner will come from 5-6-8-9. I am going for 5. ISHTAR who is in the form of her life and can complete a brace from 9. DONT BE SILLY who has the class but has been hiding true form as most of D Surtis horses do to taking off the DNB will let the horse run freely and if he can stay he will be hard to catch.6. TOP ACTION with malesh on top will be breathing fire on the field and can upset.
Tips:5. ISHTAR /9. DONT BE SILLY Tips:6. TOP ACTION
Race 5:I think that there is going to be a upset in the October Handicap. the horses that will be there to upset are 6-7-8-10. My first pick is 6. PERSIAN POWER who is very well prepared and is smart enough to win from 8. HIGHLAND WARRIOR who has been well rested after a few forward runs does dererve merit . 10. AMERICAN IDOL is the dark horse who has all the potential to upset unless the trainer decides to go with 11. HI DOLLY which wont come as a surprise
Tips:6. PERSIAN POWER / 8. HIGHLAND WARRIOR Upset:10. AMERICAN IDOL /11. HI DOLLY
Race 6: 7. SPITZ does have a good chance her but will have to beat the moody 8. ROMAN BEAUTY . the dark horse is 9. TOMMY CARMICHAEL specially if the connections have a win earlier in the day.

Race 1: Tough race to open the day but 3 horses seem to have been prepared with intent i.e. 4-6-9. Alothough the other horses can win here My first pick is KANGAROO PUNCH who is well prepared afater a easy run to win from SPRAWLING ELEGANCE . the dark horse here is FOUR SEASONS who is running amongst her peers today for the first time and can give a bold show.
Tips:6 KANGAROO PUNCH /4 SPRAWLING ELEGANCE Upset: FOUR SEASONS
Race 2: Bad race where consistantly inconsistant horses are running hence avoidable.My pick is SMILE AGAIN to win from GARUDA who is the dark horse.
Tips: SMILE AGAIN / GARUDA
Race 3: POTENTIAL STAR has been penalised 14.5 kgs for her last win as he true potential this a negetive for filly and is not worth a bet under 1 1/2 good luck if she wins. My first pick is GOLDEN KISS whos last run is best ignored and has a decent handicap hence can beat the favorite. CANNON RUN is the dark horse if the jockey can handle it should atleat place.
Tips: GOLDEN KISS / CANNON RUN
Race 4: PANJURY will be the one to beat from STINGER who i believe will run a good race if he can handle the draw worth a small eachway punt.
Tips: PANJURY / STINGER
Race 5:Tough race but the winner should come from 2-4-6-7-8. My first pick is SURYARATH to win from MY FRIEND PAUL who is tracking well but i dont fancy darashah horses in steel plate.the dark horse here is COPENHAGEN make note if on job will keep them honest.
Tips: SURYARATH / MY FRIEND PAUL Upset: COPENHAGEN
Race 6: CELESTIAL SON has been tracking well enought to merit attention will have a bold show.the danger here can come from the mumbai chalenger SEE THE TRUTH .the dark horse is ANSONIA who has been hiding form if given the signal can run away from the word go.
Tips: CELESTIAL SON / SEE THE TRUTH Upset: ANSONIA
Race 7: its a bit of a worry when you see only 4 runners in the cols trial stakes of the 4 only one horse has had a run here.I dont think ARCHIPENKO who is a big horse will enjoy the pace here which could be his down fall.My first pick is MARK OF GIBRALTAR to win from FANTASTIC QUEST will be a toss up.
Tips: MARK OF GIBRALTAR / FANTASTIC QUEST
Race 8: If all goes well SWIFT FIRE will be the horse to beat and is my pick to win from SWIFT FIRE from TALK OF THE DEVIL who is long over due for a win. the dark horse who has been completely overlooked is STORM REGENT who is definatly the best from the Ramu Camp.
Race 9: If you are on top this race is best left alone. I am going to have a small punt on ZINDABAD .
