The Hyderabad Colts Championship

Just like the other day,here is my take on the second classic of the season 

This seems like a more open race than the fillies trial stakes,just like the other race there are some horses in the fray that have their formlines with regard to Be Safe 

The local challenger Silver Phantom,Bangalore raider Bold Manesty and You're Royal Majesty all come into this race having run against the mighty Be Safe 

Then there is the local contingent led by Movie Mughal,Veloz,Carlton and Vijag Viraaj against Bangalore's Spreadeagle and Torch Bearer....... 

While working out the formlines,of the horses that have run behind Be safe,and the relative performance of God Speed and Supreme Fairy,the Bangalore challenger definitely has a slight edge on paper 

However this race is quite open because of two gentlemen,one is trainer Padmanaban,who has Torch Bearer out of a very classy mare Running Flame,his previous run against God Speed cannot be taken as the sole reason to discard him,he can certainly surprise here,keep an eye 

Then the other horse belongs to Pesi Shroff,your royal majesty has taken an unconventional route to this race and having run behind Be Safe three times at various distances,the last race in class IV should be taken as a prep race,can hope to do well 

Its such a open race,my choice is based on Pedigree,Trainer merit,relative formlines etc! May the best horse win 

My Choice:#9 Your Royal Majesty 

Note:No investment plans or selections for other races.
