Mumbai: The HDIL Indian Oaks (Grade 1) will be run here on Sunday, 23rd October 2011 and as per my evaluation, the two Irish Jockeys Richard Hughes (Moonlight Romance) and Christopher Dennis Hayes (Siachen) are likely to be involved in a fierce tussle for supreme honors.
Despite Moonlight Romance having succumbed to Siachen twice when they have met, once in the Fillies Trial Stakes (Bangalore) and then in the Indian 1000 Guineas, she can now turn the tables on her vanquisher by the powerhouse and highly skillful riding of the internationally renowned Richard Hughes.
Furthermore, the superb Moonlight Romance has all the requisite credentials of a top class filly and I reiterate to say, that her chances of getting the better of Siachen, which she can, will now be possible, primarily because of the brilliant riding of the well-known dynamic jockey - Richard Hughes.
It would definitely be befitting to state that all in all, Christopher Dennis Hayes is not an iota of a patch on the big race internationally renowned and brilliant jockey - Richard Hughes. Hence, racegoers will get to witness a breathtaking Indian Oaks on Sunday, 23rd January 2011 and because of the brilliance of Richard Hughes, Moonlight Romance, may well be the winner of the 2011 Indian Oaks.
