The card of 9 races for the day. A competitive day, with some upsets expected.
Race1. Khwaish,Dream Of Gold, Niagara.
A three year maiden race.Niagara had an easy run last time out.Tracked nicely, looks very well prepared. The step up in distance will help it a lot.Dream Of Gold is also very well prepared, has come up a lot after last run, with Sylvester to ride will fight every inch of ground.Khwaish, has improved a lot after last run as well. The choice of Jockey is interesting, but equipment change is a positive move ,will place by default. Will it win? I believe it can win provided the Jockey tries to let the horse run its race rather than dictate the terms of race.
Race2. Royal Liason, Smile Again, Whisper Valley Upset : Spark Of Symphony
A class V mile race.The main contenders are Smile Again,Royal Liason,Spark Of Symphony and Whisper Valley. Royal liason can win provided the Jockey shows atleast some skill.
Race3. Mexikan Wave, Stellar Star ,Visual Element Upset : Amazon.
The main contenders are Mexikan Wave, Visual Element, Stellar Star, Amazon, and Prince Ashwin. Mexikan Wave, with its BLK off can run away from this set. Visual Element is in the improving curve, with Rathod to guide, will make a race of it.Stellar Star is horse with good initial speed, is drawn badly for start to finish attempt. May succeed, but will be very tough to win. Amazon and Prince Ashwin can try for minor places. Amazon is a horse which likes to swoop. Can upset note.
Race4. Faustian,Bee For You, Suave.
The race is between Suave,Bee For You, Faustian and Roto Rooa. Suave, with the last run and jockey switch should run well.Bee For You is a very consistent horse, with Appu to ride, and the horse tracking quite well, will be a lively contender.Faustian handicap is best will surely make a race of it. Rota rooa won in lower class can place.
Race5. Caldera, Nishi Girl, Actor Upset: Star Of Hearts
The race is a dicey one.An upset is on the cards. The contenders are Kar O Bar,Nishi Girl,Caldera,Actor, Teleprompter and Star Of Hearts. Star Of Hearts last run was good, likes to come of pace, with a fast run race pace will be there. Kar O Bar drawn 1, will try to run away.Nishi Girl is a fast horse, will surely make the pace hot.Teleprompter is the jack in the pack. Actor is default contender based on its last run. Caldera is a horse which is above this class surely, had major setback, tracked well, with Sylvester to guide it can make mockery of the competition.

A competitive race, where lot of horses are equally matched.The race is between Rising Rainbow,Milagro,Rumour Proof and Authoritative. River rule and Fantabulous Prince can try for minor placings only.Rumour Proof has seen far better competition in its short racing career, if fit will win. Rising Rainbow is on a hat-trick, can win if former is not fit.Authoritative ran well last time, tracking well can upset. Milagro running its distance, with the handicap will keep everyone honest.

Welcome to Indian Horse racing and thrills that come with it.
Indian horse racing is complex. The quality of horse racing in india was very poor but recently we are seeing very positive improvements in standards. The standards are looking to improve immensely in the coming times. The training facilities, the stud farms, training methods, quality of Jockies, the quality of stallions everything is improving.
