Kolkata Derby Day selections 1/101/17

1.00 #2 SMITH AND WESSON will strip fitter second-up from spell and can shed his maiden tag with massive switch in rider. 
#3 TOMORROW FOREVER showed good improvement last start while finishing close 3rd. Will appreciate the rise in trip and can upset.

1.30 #7 PANCHOVILLA has run well at both starts since a break. Extra distance ideal and this only 3yo in this field gets chance to win under strong rider. 

2.00 Bangalore import #8 MALANA is working well and has matched strides with superior horses. If new stable have her fit enough she can win this.

2.30 #1 JUMP AND RUN had a good fought win here last start. Harder here with 4kg up and stepping up in distance but can't knock winning form. 
At this feather weight #9 IVY can give this a shake. Keep an eye. 

3.00 #8 MIDNIGHT STAR has put the writing on the wall with strong showings at his past two starts including his win over Bang Bang by 6 lengths. Well weighted in this company and is the one to beat. 

3.30 Mumbai challenger from champion trainer's yard #5 DAFFODILS is in great heart at present winning three on the trot. She'll appreciate the rise in trip and should be hard to beat. 

4.00 #6 WASHINGTON has dominated in recent runs at this track and this doesn't look any harder. Likely to bring up the hat-trick.

4.30 #1 JACKNIFE struggled last start after working hard in the lead. Locked and loaded for an improved showing back to this grade. Don't discount.

1.30 #5 HAPPY BIRTHDAY strips fitter for two runs back from a spell and will appreciate the rise in distance. 

2.00 #1 NEW ENGLAND is in great form winning three on the trot. Harder stepping up in grade and distance but can't knock the winning form.

2.30 Speedy #1 ELYSEE was undone by the wide draw last start when resuming. Now should get all the favours from inside barrier and and might be tougher to catch.

3.00 #10 ANNIVERSARY GIRL had a torrid trip working hard in front last start and understandably tired. The shorter journey looks a plus and rates as one of the main chances.
Debutant #12 SIA is working impressively and will give this a shake. 

3.30 Queen filly #5 TEMERITY was a strong first-up winner after a lengthy lay off of 6 months. She can stay at this distance and looks capable of measuring up in this tougher assignment. She is yet to be beaten at this track. 

4.00 #3 MYGRATOR comes off outstanding wins at his last two starts here. Hard to go past. 

4.30 Still unexposed #2 SAMARJEET appreciated the rise in distance to break through last time out. Will relish the rise in distance and he can repeat the dose. 
#5 KING OF KILLEN put in a gallant effort last start to go down to a very good horse. If maintains same form he can earn his long overdue maiden bracket. Don't ignore.

5.00 #2 GOLD FIELD resumes on the back of her maiden win. Is working well and has the benefit of one mock race. She gets in well after the claim and ready to go fresh. Watch market.

Pune 23/9/2017

2.00 Consistent #2 SUPER ICON chasing back to back wins after a strong victory this trip last start. Up in grade but 5kg claim keeps him right in play.
#8 WINDS OF CHANGE was good first-up from a long break and should be better for that outing. Don't ignore. 

2.30 Step up to the 2400m looks ideal for #4 RAEES and is the one to beat with age and weight in his favour. 

3.00 #3 COSTA BRAVA was trifle unlucky not to win over the sprint course here on debut. Will relish the rise in distance to prove hard to hold out with Suraj in saddle.

3.30 #1 ACCOLADE outclassed his opposition last start giving weight all around and this looks no tougher. Strong fancy. 

4.00 #6 FREEDOM OF SPEECH charged home for an impressive maiden win last time and will be suited up to this distance with good speed on up front. Capable of a repeat. 

4.30 #2 BESHIKTAH is yet to race here but has early speed which will stand him in good stead at this short scurry. Hard to catch.
Keep an eye on debutant #8 EPIPHANY who is bred for speed and will run a bold race. 

5.00 #11 ZANARA has had plenty of chances but may improve up on the speed with blinkers on for the first time.

5.30 #2 DANCING PRINCE takes a step down in grade after running at the highest level. 5kg claim helps and the class drop can do the trick. 
#9 D'ACCORD strips fitter with a run under her belly and merits consideration for her winter form. She will look to gain her long overdue success at this low weights. Keep an eye.

1.30 #1 COMMANDERPERFORMANCE drops in grade and merits consideration for his close 3rd at 1400m earlier in this grade. Will appreciate the step up in trip and can earn his maiden bracket. 
#10 BLACK JAGUAR can give this a shake at this feather weights. Keep an eye. 

2.00 #3 CARNIVAL was good last start in a Independence million and looks suited stepping out to the longer trip. With a well-timed ride she'll be steaming home. 

2.30 Inform #5 GOD'S OWN ran good time to make it two wins from as many starts this season. Will force the pace and looks the one to beat again.

3.00 #5 UNCLE SCROOGE led for a long time second up only to be swamped late against stronger company. Strips that little bit fitter and might be tougher to catch among his own age group. 

3.30 Top rated #2 GALLIANT KNIGHT's last run is best ignored at 1400m in a graded event. He was badly hampered at his start prior, he could show up now dropped back in distance and Sandesh regaining the ride. 

4.00 #3 SELFIE STAR is in a purple patch at present and connections will be keen to book more wins while it continues. She is the only course and distance winner and is the strong contender to win this prestigious race. 

4.30 #4 LADY SERGEANT was well backed last start while resuming but was given no hope in the run. Strips fitter with run under her belly and deserves another chance. 
ever 
5.00 #4 ROCK IN RIO is consistent but has been finding it hard to win, the claim helps and he should get a good run throughout. 
#8 CAPTAIN has drawn ideal barrier and if he finds form will go close with massive switch in saddle. Don't ignore.

2.00 #7 ARC OF PASSION showed speed to lead last time only to be picked off late. Will burn forward again and can break through in this suspect field.
Although #1 ETERNAL LOVE has no current form but can upset in this division 2 bottom grade. 

2.30 #4 WILD FIRE demolished the opposition last start at same trip. Up in grade and this looks no tougher. Must go on top.

3.00 #3 UNFORGETTABLE YOU was a strong first-up winner after a lengthy lay off and looks capable of measuring up in this tougher assignment.

3.30 #1 ADMO only just missed fresh as a favourite and with that run under his girth should win this. 

4.00 #5 ARABIAN STORM caught the eye running on strongly when resuming. With natural improvement and better ride he  can take this out.

4.30 #8 LILAC TIME ran home strongly to finish good second last time and signal she had achieved peak fitness. Suited again and will be hard to hold out.

5.00 Well bred #2 EXCELLENT GOLD has been nicely prepared and looks ready to strike. 

5.30 #9 DIVINE MAGIC caught the eye in town last time to suggest the rise to this distance is what he needs. Must respect
Keep an eye on #2 STAR COMRADE who strips fitter with run under his belt and will give this a shake with 5kg claim.

1.30 #1 SWEET MUSIC was a comprehensive winner over this course and distance last start. Hard to beat with a repeat effort. 

2.00 It's hard to go past #2 ABBEY. Has demolished rivals at her past four starts and has the upside to continue on her winning way.

2.30 #2 ROTTERDAM is resuming, she has run in much better company than this and has been well prepared. Ready to go fresh.

3.00 #8 LA MOTTE is the one to keep an eye on making debut. Lacks preparation but should be considered in this weak maiden.

3.30 #8 BIG SUR has been given easy runs in Bangalore. He gave the impression that this trip will suit as he fought on well at his first mile attempt earlier in Mumbai. Strong fancy. 

4.00 Ignore her last effort #7 CHARGING TIGRESS put in an eye catching run here over a shorter distance last to last start. Will appreciate the extra distance in this and rates highly.steps up to the 1400m. 
#1 VALENTINO can give this a shake if in galloping mood but is a unreliable. Keep an eye. 

4.30 #4 ASCENSION is racing soundly but finding it hard to win, obviously has plenty of ability and she deserves another chance.

5.00 #1 DOUBLE NINE drops in grade and although he is better suited over minimum trip but he can prevail in this moderate set.

2.25 #1 STRENGTHANDBEAUTY drops significantly in grade making her the one to beat at her pet distance with YSS on board. Watch betting. 

3.00 #9 SEA CASTLE has been solid in two back from a spell to suggest his turn will come sooner rather than later. 
Ignore his last run while resuming #10 BATUR gets in under the minimum after the claim and will give this a shake. Appeals on handicap.

3.35 #8 CASH FOR RANK has been quite impressive winning 2/3 starts this prep. Certainly likely to appreciate step up to more ideal trip to prove hard to hold out. 

4.10 #3 BAYRD finished off strongly for his first win last start. He has staying potential and should be suited by step up at this trip. May score an encore. 
#5 VALEE TIGER looks the likely leader and may try and steal this from the rails draw under 3.5kg claimer. Don't ignore.

4.45 Discount his last run in Bangalore Derby #6 PERFECT STAR ran a big race in much stronger Bangalore colts championship grade prior and If he can hold his spot in the first half of the field he is clearly the one to beat. 

5.20 #3 SWEET MARCH has put the writing on the wall with strong showings at his past two starts. Well placed on scales in this company and ready for this distance. Rates highly.

2.30 #4 GENEROUS LADY finally broke through for an overdue win last start. Goes up in grade and can repeat the dose.
Still a maiden #8 NAUMEE can shed her maiden tag at this favourable handicap. Watch betting. 

3.00 #2 TEMERITY looks formidable in this company.

3.30 #9 VICTORIANA has plenty of speed and if she can get right run up front may steal this from the corner. Distance ideal. 

4.00 #4 YANNA RASCALA was a strong first-up winner and looks capable to repeat at this extended trip. 

4.30 Although he is little short on preparations #2 COSTA BRAVA from champion trainer's yard can earn his maiden bracket in this ordinary set of maiden runners. 
Keep an eye on well bred #8 EXOSPHERE whose dam was a classy sprinter and she can make a winning debut.
