A winner is always a winner in such races.  Mauritania has beaten all and Holds the course record for a sprint... though it is running 1400 today. It will go start to finish today.

Dear Ahishekh

You may be right in describing most horses as classic but not so in case of RIKKI TIKKI TAVI, the horse is winner of just a miden race.

For me it is ACCOLADE finishing in Place Monely.  With little bit of luck it may upset this race.   RIKKI TIKKI TAVI is the dark horse.

What a big write up !!!!

Judiciously prepared RIKKI TIKKI TAVI [Suraj Narredu up] will fly from the rear and take them all.

The best horses can lose a race and the worst can win. without the element of uncertainty there would be no fun and no betting.

This is a terms race in which weights are assigned based on some criteria. but every horse has a rating which is based on performance and assessed by the official handicapper. 

In most of the races weights are carried as per the rating ( handicap races ). If this race was a handicap race, both CORFE CASTLE and RIKKI TIKKI TAVI would have to carry equal weight both having a rating of 108. But CORFE CASTLE carries 60 Kg as compared to 54 carried by RTT.

MAURITANIA is rated 9 points higher than RTT and should carry 4.5 Kg more. But it has to carry 6 Kg more as per the terms of the race.

Only cocern is that 108 rating of RTT came from a sudden jump from 77 to 108 based on its last run in Super Mile Race at Hyderabad where it finished 2nd to Sergeant At Arms and ahead of Cambridge, Whomakestherules and Corfe Castle.

Can RIKKI TIKKI TAVI do it again?

On handicap-- YES. On Class -- MAYBE.

Looks good for a PLACE.

Rikki Tikki Tavi is the horse to beat.

100% Place.

Rikki Tikki Tavi has only won once, however he has run creditably against top class opposition and now gets a decent pull in the weights. Drawn well, he should give a bold show.
