Bangalore Summer Derby Tips

Race1:Smashing Blue(1)

Smashing Blue competed against the best sprinters in the country. She is now carrying top weight, and the jockeys allowance could help her win in this company.

Race2:Del Mar(10) Placed

Despite being a non-winner promotee, Del Mar is looking very promising in the trackwork and has the speed to do well in this class. The jockey keeps the ride, and the feather weight should help.

Race3:Shamrock(7) Placed

Shamrock is looking good in the morning trials and could do well on debut with the top jockey aboard.

Race4:Southern Dynasty(6)

He is a course and distance winner who won very impressively while carrying the top weight. I believe he has the class to score an encore.


She is an expert at this distance and has a strong chance of winning in this set.


Philosophy is in great shape and is here to stay. The wet track will suit her, and she should run a gutsy race.

Race7:Monteverdi(2) Placed

He ran a flawless race on his debut and is primed to score today.

Race8:Own Legacy(1) Won

She is well placed on the scales, and if she takes a good jump, she will be difficult to beat.
