It Was A Royal March To Victory By

By smart-still-poor-punter | 12-May-2019

Hi Friends, What a splendid run by 'Royal Currency' in the Nilgiris Derby! Even as about 90% of punters were looking for 'Castilian' to complete the formality, the ultimate winner proved that horses in the name of (late) MAM are still a force to reckon with in Classics.. Imran Khan used all his experience to keep his mount going and maintain the lead all through the short straight. Akshay Kumar should not be blamed for Castlian's loss as the animal was left with very little in the tank despite the rider giving a few cracks. Trainer B Suresh will now definitely plan big with spending this valuable currency in other centres. Hats off to HT colleagues like Godzilla and Mad Max who were 'dead' sure on RC's win. If only the current trend of genuine racing is going to be maintained, the future augurs well for Ooty race course.

Both Royal Currency and Castilian will not be sighted in future classics. Ooty derby is like bangalore class 3 race

Castilian had no gas in the tank. Also B Suresh much superior trainer to Vishal Gaikwad.

CASTILIAN was royally hoojed

At the 150 mark when CASTILAN CAME alongside and was cruising, ROYAL was whipped, goarded etc and then Akshay did the master strike if changing course and going on Rails.
