It is the Kingfisher Ultra Indian derby day and here is my analysis for what seems like a long day with 9 races,let's hope the racing lives upto the hype that is created around it on the big day.
Race 1:Uncle Scrooge basically gets the first nod here is what seems like a race that may suit him,the only question is will the reduction of trip to 8f from 12f aid or affect its chances,The Haresh Mehta horse in Oscillation has a change in equipment and jockey must be in the mix,Move In time and dancing splendor can make this race interesting too.
Race 2:Maiden 3yo's,Highland breeze,Imitation Game,Tromborne and Imperial Heritage all have decent chances to prevail and is an open affair,if I were to pick one then I may go with the one who is bred in half to illidan,Imitation Game
Race 3:The Champ,Hidden Soul,Heart of the city,Phoenix Fire are the short listed horses for me,The Champ showed good heart when winning a fighting race against Pearl secret last time out,the latter a winner in a handicap million makes it even more sweeter,the obvious choice in the course of the day
Race 4:Class V race with horses like Flashing Honour,Atalya,Charging empress and Arsenal in the mix of contenders in my view,may go any which way but a slight edge to the first names horse
Race 5:Mine Forever,Rule down under are having better saddle support and pitched against Zander and Himalayan queen both of whom are well placed,going by the run against the sprint sensation Dancing Prances last time out,it is Zander who gets my first pick against the likes of Himalayan Queen,Providence is also there
Race 6:Quite a big field for the derby trip class IV million,Personify is looking good with a conditioning run in the upper class,earlier got the better of excelonce over a mile and then lost to Solange which is not a disgrace,however this field is abundant with horses who have pull of weights in their favour,Verbier/Aeoleus Maximus/Sou'wester might throw a winner,the first named appeals to me
Race 7:Good field with horses who have run behind Devoted eyes,Serinity all winners of million races seen in the fray,Lord Darlington with equipment changes against Shivalik Shine have to contend with the assault of the Sunderji horses in Ladislaus and Honey Dew,Ice Angel with a mock race win is also in the fray albeit making his debut here,open affair but Honey Dew may present some value at race time
Race 8:The big one with the Filly 'Myrtlewood' who had already her staying prowess in the Oaks is against the boys in Costa Del Sol/Desert God/Comombiana/Sea Lord/Phoenix Tower. The Myrtlewood says my heart and I will follow my heart here and wish that the best horse wins,the official tag of the derby day is #GY❤️R and hope the race is as thrilling as the tag suggests
Race 9:Harvey is sitting very pretty in
this race and is a strong pointer to close
the day,Kevin Mannings mount may be the one that could create some
Issues here however the first named has his work cut out to close the day with a bang.
That's it friends,meet you all sometime later may be on invitation weekend
Have fun at the races :)
