Mumbai 24.02 2013

Very Good card of racing today many likely trier and it will pay to follow value each way bets.

Race 1: Open VB race. My Shortlisted 4 are horses 4-5-7-11. Best to stay away from such races or look for a value eachway bet.Conztanza, represents value but being a H Metha horse its hard to say.

Tips: Arabian Lord,    Upset: Conztanza,

Race 2: Winter Wind, has had two easy runs so far and looks ready to strike should be the one to beat.

Tips ; Winter Wind

Race 3: A very interesting race Winston, doesn't have the handicap in his favor needs to improve by more then 6 lengths from his last run to win here which will not be easy. Papakura, is in great form but is conceding weight to some smart animals.Fortune Hunter, has J fortune on him today but will have to improve a lot to win in this set,Que Sera Sera,  last run was very disappointing cant see her improving more in this set.Smooth Operator, is in very good form too mile is the worry but has the jockey who is a good judge of pace and can get that extra out here.Jewels Of The Hill, is sitting on a good handicap and has a good jockey problem is they are a big gambling connection so best decide at race time.Lastly Soneeyo, who ran first up after a break of 5 months with a work jockey aboard in the race winston won stayed well with the pace and finished on well without being extended has stripped fitter and has a good jockey in the saddle will inprove a lot from that run and will be the one to beat.

Tips: Soneeyo,

Race 4:Another interesting race. On handicap  Hachiko, has a very good chance but I don't think the horse is up to it anymore and its best to avoid.Blue Ace, is in good form and has a good handicap is running his pet distance will run a good race but has to beat some very talented animals. Deja Vu, is in great form  is pitted against some very good animals whose pet distance is 7 flg so he will have to be at his best in a trip which he has never seen the post first. Vittoria, who needs a strong rider on him has one the very fast pace will suit him and he will run a much better race.Silver Birch, has the handicap against him but with Hughes who has the skills the settle horses early will work to his advantage and he will take advantage of the the fast pace and can upset.Spirit Of Mercy, has played second fiddle for a long time it is time to strike has a good handicap and will be the one to beat. Will be very interesting if Silk Cut, wins.

Tips: Spirit Of Mercy,          Upset: Silver Birch,

Race 5: Antonius Maximus,  Razeenaa, and Roswald, should fight for honors here but the very difficult to ride Razeenaa, should be the one to beat.

Tips: Razeenaa

Race 6: luck will play a major role here the best horse doesn't necessarily have to win here as a lot of factors are involved in a 7 flg race with 17 runners and horses with a good draw and initial speed will have things in their favor. On Pure form and performance  Dancing Phoenix,Dancing Prances,Mariinsky, and Starry Eyes, should be looked at the first named has  not dont anything wrong so far but running the big race in a span of 7 days for a youngster is a big ask,the second named was a impressive winner been prepared very well has initial speed but drawn 1 is the and will need a good start to prove his worth should be right there, The third named is the better of the 3 Pesi horses drawn 6 is a decent draw and has everything in his favor today jockey will need to be at his best to get a win, The last named is a nice type and will make account of it but the wide draw is a problem. From the second string horses Albertino,Murioi,Presidential,Gerome, and Scenic Warrior, merit attention. Viewing the Draws jockey form and track work Murioi,Presidential, need a good look. The first named ran 4 races in a span of 31 days was withdrawn in one and disqualified in the other brought to mumbai rested and now tracing very well and should run a good race not drawn badly Presidential, was unlucky rast run but is looking very good on track will be the one to beat today. People looking for a rank outsider dont look further then Presence, if there is a big upset here it is.

Tips: PresidentialMariinsky,      Upset: Murioi,Presence,

Race 7: First timers so hard to say but make note of Muntasir, who looks very well prepared and can upset but has to beat Ancient Warrior, and Zaagros, the last named is ready to strike.

Tips: Ancient Warrior, Zaagros,         Upset: Muntasir

Race 8: Last race of the day with many possibilities horses 1-2-4-8-9-10 all have a fair chance to win. Stormy Wind, was a impressive winner last time and can repeat.Mable, should be followed for his consistency.Home Factor, has sentimental value here due to the name of the race will be right there.

Tips:Stormy Wind, Mable,         Upset :Home Factor,

Days Best: Soneeyo,
Double: Soneeyo,Razeenaa
Treble: Soneeyo,Razeenaa,Ancient Warrior,

Eachway or Place prospects: Conztanza,Winter Wind,Silver Birch,Murioi,Stormy Wind,

Bolt from the Blue: Presence,Muntasir

Mumbai 21-02-2013

Race 1: Interesting race Handicap is not in favor of Ambrosia, and the fact that she is also up in distance doesn't do any favors. Although Okavango, is better suited here against the favorite has never traveled the distance too.Clarion Call, is running first up but is the best stayer in the set and can upset. Best to avoid the race.

Tips: Okavango,

Race 2: Toss up between Act Of War, and Octopaul, latter is better.

Tips: Il Moran,Oxbridge,         Upset: Belle Brise,

Race 7: This will be a interesting race with most of the fancied runners are fast and like to hit the front which will make the pace too fast and can affect their chance horses that come off the pace have that benefit and if the connections take advantage of this they can win. The speedy horses are 2-3-4-5-9-10 which leave horses 1-6-7-8-11 to take advantage of the situation Mountain Mynah, and Grand March, have the form or hidden form to swoop the field.Rein In Spain, is the joker in the pack.

Mumbai 10 Feb 2013

Race 1: Interesting race Angel Child, and Halle, have locked horns on two occasions and the latter has finished better today the latter is in receipt of 8 kgs and is definitely better placed and should finish ahead again. Swift Memories, is better placed on handicap then Rodeo, Although on paper Halle, has the best chance it will pay to avoid the race as she is from a gamble stable and her faith will be decided in the ring.Swift Memories, will run a good race today and can upset.

Race 2: The speedy You're The Boss, and Panthera, have two good runs under their belt and should be the ones fighting for honor the latter is a better animal and should be right there.First timer Ultrasonic, seems to posses a lot of speed and can upset here as the other two are nothing special yet.

Horses that represent value are 1-3-6-17-19-20.Marine Zone, who missed out on this race last time by a short head was my pick last year and Golden Memory, who finished 3rd not by much will be tried here again keeping in mind its a big field and age is against them i still give them a outside chance the first named is better.Talk Of The Town, is a horse I have given up on but know will beat them all when tried today he is a likely trier.Mateus Rose, goes in as a default selection as the trainer will always try in races that have a sentimental value,Absolute Star, won well when not fancied last run will make most of it along with Yardstick, whos last run is best ignored today he will run a far improved race as the inquiry is closed if luck and intent is there he will win.

Mumbai 3-2-2013

Race 1: 20 Horses in VB and 15 look like they are in for a run so there will be a lot of traffic issues so best to avoid from a punting point of view.There are many horses that can spring a surprise here is tried horses 6-11-15-17-18 are the ones but hard to say as not sure of intent. Definitely a race to avoid.

Tips: Hawaiian Princess,                  Upset: Only White,

Race 2: First timers so hard to say but it will take a very good baby to win a mile on debut against experienced horses so best to avoid
 Circle Of Life, who can win but not worth the risk.Falcon,Mars, and Sword Of Honour, have come up a lot since their last run and will be in the thick of things The first named has improved a lot and will be the one to beat.

Tips; Falcon,

Race 3: A very closely matched race and all contenders have a good chance to win here jockey skills will matter.My top two are the very speedy Hills And Heights, who has the handicap and credentials but the jockey is a worry and Jimbo, who is much improved animal his last run can be discounted would have run a very close second if he dint meet with the interference plus he was suffering from a respiratory infection on the same day today is fit and ready to strike.

Tips: Jimbo,

Race 4: Barringo,Grande DameShivalik Prideand Sun Salutation, have competed in a far superior company then the rest.Appalachia, was a very impressive winner in his last run but the horses he beat haven't don't anything yet so the to 4 have a better chance of winning then him.The first named is consistent and has been improving with every run should be in the fray,the second named is a very good animal and seems to have some issues so raced sparingly however will like the extended trip and will be there to trouble the best.The third named has not dont anything so far but keep in mind he has only run Terms and Graded races this is his debut in a handicap race Class 3-4 which is a huge drop in class and dont let the jockey put you off he is there because he has the weight to suit the handicap as all other Ramu horses are well fed.Lastly Sun Salutation, now here is a horse that was fancied as a classic beaten by a shorthead by Red Barron in her second run she also has run in terms and graded races till her last run where she ran in a handicap race but dint want to complete the race today if she is in the mood she will win at this handicap.

Tips: Sun SalutationGrande Dame,

Race 5: The last run of Smashing, was shocking and I cant touch her till she shows improvement however jockey may make a difference its hard to say but its worth giving her another chance if you really have the capacity to do so. Ranthambhore, needs a strong rider and has one today he will run a good race here and the handicap advantage should give her a run for the money.If there is a upset here it will be Silver Birch,

Tips: RanthambhoreSmashing,

Race 6:This is 12 flg race and many have not run in it so its best to go slow here as anybody can win Sophisticated, is on a very good handicap and if she stays which is likely she will win here from Monet, or Queen's Camp,

Tips: Sophisticated,                Upset: Queen's Camp,

Race 7: Youngsters with many of unknown quantity Indian Touch, who has a benefit of a very easy run should be involved in the finish however Bombardier, is a far improved horse and who ever wins will have to beat him today. Make note of first timer
 Isadoro, who is tracking very well and can upset or sneak in a place.

Tips: BombardierIndian Touch,        Upset: Isadoro

1) An Acquired Taste,: A horse that has his fair share of problems but has been looked after well with the derby in mind his run in the Ruia was very good and he had a few gears up his sleeve till the finish distance wont do him harm but his fitness is the worry the pace of that race was slow and today's will definitely be fast so he will be tested to keep up with it.
2) Angel Crown,: Pacemaker for the former
3) Borsalino, : He will be able to settle with the pace is a good stayer today's fast pace will actually suit him but he will have to be at his best to out pace and out stay the rest of the field.Keep in mind he has beaten Machiavellianism, by 4 lengths on his home turf.
4) Caesars Star,: Will stay and will run a great race and for the sake of the connections I hope he win although it is a huge ask.
5) Commander,: Has had a disappointing season so far but his runs suggest he was under prepared in his both prep races now he looks well prepared and ready and keep in mind he has beaten most of the fancied runners in pune so if given a fair ride he will be right there.
6) Hemisphere, : Very interesting that Hughes has picked him ahead of Montezuma who in my opinion is a better animal he does have an edge over the fancied runners as he is improving with every run and now is tuned to the minute to improve further I have doubts on him staying better then his stablemate but the jockey is the one who can work wonders on anything.
7) Honest Pleasure,: Will run
8) Machiavellianism,: His last run was very good but after reproducing a good turn of foot he stopped that suggest his limitation in stamina will run a great race but will need to stay.
9) Maximus,: Has the previlage of beating Machiavellianism, in his home turf over a mile ran a brave but easy race conceding weight to the field of good horses he should get the trip on that basis and if there is a danger he can produce it.
10) Montezuma,: In his last two runs he has not been given a fair ride in the ruia he was taken around the world and still was finishing on very we is a free striding animal the wide draw will will hell him settle well and if the Jockey who has been handed the golden opportunity by Pesi can handle the big race pressure he can win today should be in the top 4.
11) New World,: Ran a very good race in the ruia and will improve from that however he had the best run in that race and today will need something special to out class some good horses.
12) Shivalik Hero,: Has always been camera shy in big events his last run in the Ruia was good and he was moving well and he will stay but they need to ride him off the pace and hope they do it today should be right there.
13) Snowscape,: When he won the Calcutta Derby his manner of victory was mind blowing if the jockey can handle the awkward inside draw he will win today.
14) Super Storm,: Will relish the long mumbai straight but running in a span of 8 days is a big drawback.
15) Wind Stream,: Won the Mysore derby in style then has been off the track for 60 days is very well prepared will relish the long straight and will be right there in the fray however I would have preferred a run before the derby as this is a very good field.
16) Song Dynasty, : Was amazed that she was ignored in the oaks being such a poor field however is running in 2 weeks so not sure how she has recovered after that run should run a good race and can place.
17) Winds Of Fortune, : a improved horse but in this company will have to improve a lot.

Over all a race with many chances and luck will be crutial to win here I do believe they all have to beat Snowscape,

Tips: Snowscape, Montezuma,                    Upset: Commander,

Race 9: Last race of the day and many chances best to avoid or go for a value bet however there will be a gamble on Stormyday, here so watch the market on him.Speed Up,Moon Raker, and Blue Casper, are value bets as one of them will be tried here and wiill be value eachway bets. The second named is a gamble horse so watch the market on him.

Tips: Blue CasperStormyday,             Upset: Speed Up,

Knock Knock
