Mumbai 23-02-2014

Race 1:A wide open race and tactics will dominate the finish. Highraz, who is a very small framed horse is sitting on a good handicap and has the best jockey to guide her fortunes should be the one to beat,Knight Of Ke, is a genuine galloper but burst her blood vessel last run if its hot it will be hard to back her she will run a good race if all goes well. Belmont, is a late galloper and like a very fast pace with only one horse that is likely to dominate the pace it is hard judge him, Haunting Moments, although carrying top weight has the potential but it wont be easy. Hawker, should go on a start to finish mission today but no track work is a mystery.

Tips: Highraz,

Race 2: Song Saa, should make amends today but has to beat Sheer Romance, and the in form Heatwave,

Tips: Song Saa

Race 3: A wide open race and looks like many horses have been prepared with this race in mine most of them belong to KND and Shirke connections.Winston,Demonstrator ( winner of this race in 2012), Picasso, and Set To Fly,  are the ones that will be in contention for a win. The last named although has a work jockey is the one on a good handicap and has been working very well has beaten the First named twice and can do it again if you set Winston as par who is a fancied runner then he cant be ignored make note if the connection are serious he will win. the third named had a easy run first up as he was running after a long spell today is the day he will be tried and can win.Demonstrator has a fair chance her has to hit the front age is against him but will run a good race.

Tips: Danse Debonaire,  Upset:  Ice Cool,  

Race 6: Always a open race Be Safe, has done nothing wrong so far but will be tested today in particular by SolomonWar Command, and Tatiana, the first two named need a mention as both will improve a lot from their last run and will give the favorite a very tough time. I strongly believe War Command, is a better animal then his stablemate was a bit immature earlier but with his current preparation he will be the one to beat Solomon won well last time and will be even better today.

Tips: War Command,Solomon

Race 7: Merchantofvenice, who had a very easy run and is tracking very well and Purple Moonlight, who had a good lung opener and looks well prepared are my top two in this wide open race for youngsters.

Tips: Merchantofvenice, Purple Moonlight,.


1) Ace Bucephalus,: I have always believed in this horse but for some reason or the other he seems to fail. I do believe he needs more running ground and the long stretch run in mumbai and change of trainer will work in his favor. Keeping in mind this is the toughest set he will face he can place at best.

2) Agostini,: Impressive winner of the bangalore derby in a very slow run race and a shade weaker company will run a good race but winning just looks out of reach today.

3) Alaindair, : Did not have that spark in his last run was beaten fair and square cant see that change considering the field will run a good race with Srinath who can get the best out of him but not sure winning is likely.

4) Archie, : will run a good race here but just does not have the class to beat this set.Start to finis tactics may favor him as he can stay all day.

5) Falcon,: Sluggish horse with no current form hard to recommend if the pace is fast he will run a fair race.

6) Jeremiah,: Has done everything right and Pesi has prepared him well for the day only issue is the draw and the tendency of Zervan to come through the shortest way which will hinder his chances here as many horses will try and snatch the lead in the straight and he can easily get blocked and cost him the race. He will be right there and is definitely in with a great chance but i wont be surprised with a hard luck story.

7) Murioi, : No doubt that he is currently the best 4yo in the country and they all have to beat him on current form there are a few horses who will test him today and if he play up at the gates or unlucky he can lose.

8) Southern Emperor, : was ridden in a very strange manner in Hyderabad and keeping in mind that he has beaten Charltanen by 7 lengths over 2000 meters gives him a very good chance he does like a the hard ground and there is a obvious reason the connections have skipped the bangalore derby and brought him here he will run a very good race and is one of the horses that can upset.

9) Wentworth, : Impressive winner last time who will stay all day has come to hand late but will improve a lot since last run will run a good race but winning looks unlikely.

10) Amazing Grace,: Did not run a bad race in the Oaks considering the fact that it was only her second run and the pace of the race was very slow she will improve a lot today and will run a very good race.

11) Circle Of Life, : Richard hughes will have a third shot at the classics with her. Third time lucky is not out of sight she just needs that extra luck and she will show her true class dont ignore her she will be right there.

12) Highraz,: not here.

13) Isn't She Special, : Won the oaks on sheer tactics and caught everyone napping will be a different proposition today. Is a good stayer but today most of the runners are so hard to repeat.

14) Keukenhof,: Finished off very nicely in the oaks but not sure will do the same in this company.

15) Starry Eyes,: has let her followers down one too many times to consider today.

Tips: Murioi,Circle Of Life,                Upset: Amazing Grace

Race 9: Backstreet Bay, looks well prepared for the race and should be the one to beat if tried.Annabeth,Bella Figura, and Mt Tianmen, have fair chance to upset if he fails.

Tips: Backstreet Bay,Annabeth,             Upset: Bella Figura
