South India Derby 2021

By The Joker | 12-Jan-2021

hi folks

Cometh the New Year, cometh the Winter Derbies.

After the 7 plus months with no racing, all the classics seem to coming fast n quick

my Analysis

horse 1  BOLD LEGEND

Won easy over the 2000 metres.  The pedigree suggests the longerdistance will not be a issue whoich is why Pesi is running him here.

horse 2 CAVALLO VINCENTE

By David Livington, has not done much to consider in this field.

horse 3 GIANT STAR

By Excellent Art of a Arazan mare, the pedigree suggests stamina all over with the granddam an Oaks and Inviation winner.  Can shine in this set.

horse 4 HOPE ISLAND

Ran like a dud in last run, wherein packed up after leading over the 1600 m trip.Though pedigree suggests distance, this one is a no go

horse 5 ILLUSTRIOUS RULER

By Corporate Jungle out of a Rebuttal mare, better to ignpore in this sort of class

horse 6 RUBIK STAR

Though Taimur is the more fancied of the Karthik Ganapathy pair, keep an eye on this one as he will love the extra distance

late finishing second to the star filly Forest Flame in the Breeders Produce stakes just showed his class and was begging for more ground whihc he gets today, with most of the contenders not having gone this distance due to the pandemic, an ew chance at good odds

horse 7 SPORTING MEMORIES

Won easily beating ANSALDO over the 2000 metres.  impressive enough to come into the consideration.

horse 8 TAIMUR

Fantabulous winner of the 2000 Guineas last month, the only issue is the pedigree which is ideal over the 7-8 furlongs.

But has a heart of Gold and will give it a real fight.

horse 9 VACHAN

Fast fin ishing third over the 1600 Guineas trip, easily the one who will relish the trip whih should suit his late running style.  

only question mark is the rider Umesh who is certainly not in the form of the previous seasons but none the less alive contender for the Derby throne

Only danger is the Queen filly Born Queen

horse 10 BORN QUEEN

Distance was a questgion mark when she ran the Oaks but the way she navigated  the same en route to a superb victory makes her the one to beat.  Suraj has taken the ride again

if given a chance to run her merry race, she will wallop this field and give the Narredu familty a back to back Derby double after last years upset

horse 12 SUCCESSOR

Second in the Oaks, what iS astounding is that Trevor has retianed the ride over winners like Sporting Memories.  But neverhteless having run over this distance, shapes as contender for the minor placings as will find it difficult to beat Born Queen

Selection

Born Queen - Bold Legend -  Vachan/Sporting Memories/Rubik Star/Taimur/Successor

Cheers

Race is between Taimur,Giant Star Successor and Born Queen. Successor is with the wrong trainer. This trainer is not a classics trainer. His earlier achievements were due to MAMs horses home worked by his team in Chennai. Successor needs a lot of pace and if that happens today the it can turn the tables. Taimur should also enjoy if the pace is good and it will be since there is a stable mate and another owner mate. Since it is 2400 mtr race Sandesh will have ample time to settle this erratic horse. Giant Star should run also run well. Born Queen has gone over this distance and also should run well. I expect a fast race and whether BQ will handle that and win. I would have included Vachan if it was any other rider. His exploits in Chennai cannot be the yardstick to measure his talent and skill in a big race.

Taimur. Successor. Giant Star

I thought Giant Star was unimaginatively ridden in the 2000 guineas.Now with Y S Srinath in the saddle , and change in tactics , he should turn the tables on Taimur.Gaint Star each way , it is.

Friends, keep an eye on GAINT STAR. It has a good rider, Y. S. SRINATH, and it has beaten the much fancied Taimur earlier by two lengths. It has distance suitable too.

Taimur track has not been relieved. Hence the horse may win. Chennai it is, no one can predict. 

No more selections from my side for Chennai. Play Taimur,  it should win, in this dominant Centre of personalities.

There  is no  recent  work  outs  of  top  horses ,which  leaves  a  confused  picture. MAM''s  horses  are  quitely  excercised.

So  enjoy  the  race  many  other  good  races  to  back
