Mumbai-Short selections 225/03/17

1-1 Isinit appeals due to its third in upper class on 2nd oct and also the fact that this is a d-2 race,challengers are Milwalkee and Headlines for obvious reasons.

2-1 Frosty appeals on sheer class and age factor going for it,tricky race otherwise if the penalty it incurred on Golconda Oaks go against it.

3-3 Elegant Beauty has the class hierarchy going for it and it would be a surprise if it doesnt fare well in the third of the day.

4-6 Viking seems to be the value choice in what should be an open race with Spiridon and Dolphin as possible contenders.

6-3 Brabourne has to contend with the well bred debutante in Arabian Storm to claim the prize here,Zanzibar is the dark un

7-2 Arctic Whizz the demotee if it could carry weights is a top contender here,pretty much a tricky affair otherwise

8-1 Maduro being a maiden class winner and higher class runner in both Bombay and a million runner in B'lore appeals as a top contender to close the day,Airlift and Lady in Red are possible detractors

Mumbai Thursday 14/03/2017

Hello Friends,
          So Mumbai racing season has reached a stage where there is nothing much to look forward to with the majority of Black Type races in the burner and a few handicap races to keep the Interest going,my last post was more of a guide rather than a tipping thing which I used to do,On that note would try to do the same again with comments for every horse,followed by personal preferences.

Race 1

Uncle Scrooge:Class V win to clear maidens followed by a class IV win,the trip is a big? as horse is cutting down a lot in trip,difficult.

Cezzane:Old in tooth,have always done well over 5 furlongs,not in the hunt here

Chizzler:2/2 so far in its career,Same class winner yet on the improving curve,keep an eye

Bounty Queen:Maiden class winner,Lower Class Winner and Same Class winner,last run was bad but has been a surpriser sort in its career

Merabella:Debut winner in class IV and later won class III,has not climbed the handicap latter since then,outside chance

Wind Craft:If age is a cri…

MUMBAI 12/03/17

Race 1 
Red fort-same class winner,last start was horrible but so is the set here 
Ritz-decent performer with respect to the set here it takes on,keep an eye 
 Roman Gold-Youngster and going over the trip for the first time,Dam is a winner over this trip and is the joker in the pack 
Black jaguar-another horse who is jumping big in distance,Lagad known for such tactics but somehow this horse doesn't inspire wild confidence 
Star scholar-young,decent runs when compared to this set and a huge switch in jockey,positive vibes on this horse 
Close call as the field is small and we have only one winner in the field,as I said star scholar has the intent going for it and then there is roman gold who has the bloodlines to upset
Second race 
Brynhill-same class winner  Brahmachari-class 2 winner,sprinters cup runner but ratings went from 85 to 100+ due to third in a Terms race,now below 100 in a long time,has a chance  Supreme regime-aged chennai return  Deep diver-class 2 winner,earlier r…

INVITATION WEEKEND DAY-2

Hello Friends,
           Here are my views for day 2 of the invitation weekend which features the Big one THE INDIAN TURF INVITATION CUP (GRADE I)

Race 1:A race for 3yo maidens to open the day,Aaron The Baron/Cantabria/Minniver Rose/Queen Latifa/Sheer Magic being my shortlisted contenders,Queen Latifa had a decent debut and with that run under her belt should do well in the opener of the day.

My Choice:#12 Queen Latifa Win 

Race 2:A class IV race over an absorbing trip of 1800mts and to be frank this race is quite open with both the URBB horses in the hunt,the choice of jockey on Chloe should not be a dampener as i feel it can do well over this trip,also Jersey Beauty after a good lung opener has a change in jockey and is the prime contender here,Flirting Eyes is another horse with some good chance to clear its maiden ranks,a tough call to make but I'm going with a yard that is firing all season in Jersey Beauty.

My Choice:#4 Jersey Beauty Win 

Race 3:A Multi Million for horses in thei…

Invitation Weekend Day-1

Hello Friends,
        It is a late post and i hope by the time i complete it it isnt too late to post,day 1 features THE Dr.MAM RAMASWAMY MEMORIAL STAYERS CUP and THE MYSORE RACE CLUB SPRINTERS CUP both Gr.1 races in what is akin to the Breeders cup in India..... Here are some thoughts about the feature and the undercard in what promises to be a day of some good racing

Race 1:A class IV affair to start the day that too for the older horses,D'Accord is a failed fav at  bombay class 4 last time out and is the highest rated amongst the maiden horses in the fray and should be respected in the opener of the day.Amazing Desire although is one of the oldest horses in the fray is a winner of the erstwhile class II and now class I race 3 years ago and the horse has showed some spark in its last few runs and with a change in jockey should not be discarded here,Hurrah is one more contender as it won a class V race at Mysore and has had a call in the upper class in his last start and now with …

Indian Derby Day 05-02-2017

Hello Friends,
Looking forward to the biggest race of the racing season all Winter it is the day of the Indian Derby,here are my views for the day

Race 1:A race with dilemmic proportions for me to choose,we have in here three runners who run with a chance but it is anybody's race,Serinita ofcourse is the cynosure of all in here and the horse has a good record to match it up with then there is Shivalik Shine who has this habit of missing the break yet has a good flourish to make a race out of it despite the jockey change and then there is Undisputed who ha been on board twice this season and has a jockey who has a good partnership with this horse and this being a race over a sprint and hoping that there is good strong pace at the front Shivalik Shine may be the horse with a real chance given the race unfolds to its liking and is my personal fancy to open the day

My Choice:#1 Shivalik Beauty Win

Race 2:Boring affair,dont even know where are the other milers to compete here.

Race 3:If you…
