As we head into a new year, the Winter Season at Mysore Race Club is already in full swing. Race day 12 falls on January 5th, with a schedule of 7 races. All of the contests fall into Classes 2-5.

Our top race for the day is The Chitradurga Plate, the highest category event of the day. This one is a Class 2 race for horses rated 60 and above. The race has a total purse of INR 261840 awaiting the winners.

On the race card, you will find a crowded field of nine competitors. Since this is a 1400m race, speed and early pace will play a larger role. The fifth race of the day, the Chitradurga Plate has a scheduled start time of 04:30 PM.

Let’s take a closer look at the Chitradurga Plate race odds.


Check out the table below to find the horses with the best odds to win The Chitradurga Plate:

S No Horse Odds On Betway
1 Star of Thea 3.50
2 Contributor 4.00
5 D Gold 7.00
4 Script Writer 8.00
6 Crimson Fire 8.00
3 D Warrior 22.00
7 NRI Super King 22.00
9 Guiding Force 16.00
8 Good Earth 16.00

We feel this will be a three-horse race, with Star of Thea, Contributor, and D Gold expected to lead the pack. Based on race experience recent runs, Star of Thea is heavily favored, as he almost always races in Class 1 or 2 events. Star of Thea has odds of 3.50 which gives the horse an implied win probability of 28.57%.

Star of Thea will get stiff competition from Contributor, another gelding who is a regular in these higher-rated races. Both are great options at odds of around 3.50 or 4.00, yielding INR 350 to 400 on a 100 bet.

Of the rest, we like D Gold as an outside contender. He is on winning form, albeit at lower-ranked races. With odds of around 7.00, he is a good option for a medium-high risk punt at the top horse racing betting sites.

The remaining 6 horses are most likely to be also-rans, although Script Writer and Crimson Fire look quite interesting. If the top three have a bad day, these are the two most likely to capitalize – they come with odds of around 8.00 at the top betting sites in India.

Recommended Betting Tip: Star of Thea (3.50)
