Bangalore 17-11-12

Race 1: This is a 2yo race and it will always pay to stay away as anything can happen. Trackwork is very deceptive as they are immature and will be running a real race for the first time.Best to avoid. Cheval D'or, is the favorite and tracking well but the youngest of the lot that will be his downfall.

Tips: Golden Princess,Sweet N Smart,

Race 2: A race where most horses are only in for a run Sukhmanee, is best performed horse but nothing special should be the one to beat but is not outstanding. Vistabella, is a first timer who is well bred and best on track can beat the first named if intent is right. Sareeta, is the one to note has a lot of potential and seems to have come to hand if she takes interest in the race she will upset.

Race 4: Open race but horses 2-8-10-11 have a fair chance if tried. Badri, is best on track but has a problem at the gates should be the one to beat but with a bad habit at the gates its always best to avoid or halve your bets. Surprisesucceeding, is ready to strike runs best fresh intent is obvious but has a wide draw.Make note of Stately Dance, dont worry about the jockey the horse is good enough to win here if the intent is there.

Tips: Surprisesucceeding,              Upset: Stately Dance

Race 5: Open race but Starista, should be the one to beat. Arun, is the joker in the pack.

RWITC official resigns again

Publication: Mumbai Mirror ;Date: Nov 11, 2012;Section: Sport;Page: 36

RWITC official resigns again

Usman Rangeela IN PUNE 

In a surprising move, Wayne Wood, the Chief Integrity Officer cum Racing Advisor of the Royal Western India Turf Club (RWITC), resigned earlier this week.Wood,who had earlier resigned towards the end of the Mumbai season, had resumed his duties just last month at the turf club after being recalled by the committee.

    Wood in his resignation letter sent to the committee has cited that he has quit his post only on personal grounds but according to informed sources the Aussie professional’s reasons for his quitting his job abruptly are different.

    It is reliably learnt that Wood had submitted a proposal to the stewards’ body towards the end of Pune season seeking additional powers for himself and the team of stipendiary stewards working under him. The stewards, it is learnt, had agreed to give the stipendiary stewards powers to fine professionals up to Rs 50,000 from the earlier Rs 5,000 limit, however, they shot down Wood’s proposal to allow the stipes the right to hand out suspensions to guilty professionals.

    Irked by the stewards’ decision, Wood, who was to return to Mumbai after a short holiday in Australia, decided not to continue his service with RWITC and submitted his resignation letter.
