What Are Our Indian Horse Race Betting Tips For June 30th?
One of the two races covered in our Indian horse race betting tips is the the Racing Patrons Trophy. In the meantime, let’s begin by taking a look at the other race, namely the Colts Championship Stakes, along with the horses’ odds at the sportsbooks:
1. The Colts Championship Stakes
The Colts Championship Stakes is without a doubt one of the biggest events this Summer at the Bangalore Race Club. This 1600m race is open to the brightest 3-year-old colts of 2019. The term race is subsequently scheduled as the fifth event of the day, at around 4 PM. The competition will be quite intense this time, too, with eight highly rated colts in the running. The total prize purse for this prestigious event this year is around INR 41,57,000 or GBP 47,400.
Here are our top three favourites Indian horse race betting tips for this race. This include two unbeaten colts sired by Air Support (USA):
Impavid is one of the sons of Air Support off dam Polenta (IRE). The horse is also in fine fettle with three wins out of three starts. The dark brown colt is trained by the seasoned Arjun Mangalorkar and will have his regular jockey A Sandesh in the saddle on Sunday. His wins have come in both 1200 and 1600m events, with a propensity to make late bursts to finish in front.
War Hammer, the step-brother to Impavid, has Soviet Lake as his dam. He too is a dark brown colt with a 100% record after three starts. His trainer is the relatively new Prasanna Kumar, who has had an impressive start to his career with a win in the Classics already. Furthermore, all three of War Hammer’s wins have come in 1400m events.
The progeny of the legendary Leitir Mor (IRE), this bay colt has one win and a second place out of his two races so far. A top contender for the Karnataka Juvenile Million, he has what it takes to win this race on Sunday. In fact, his trainer M Narredu has already won this cup in the past. His jockey on Sunday will be the seasoned Yash Narredu.
Our Pick – It is a neck and neck fight between the two sons of Air Support. War Hammer has a minuscule edge in our books which is why he is our top pick as long as the odds makers start listing at 5/1. However, Impavid could easily script a different story on Sunday. Mystic Bay is well worth a punt as a long shot, too, given his form and bloodline.
2. The Racing Patrons Trophy
After the colts race, we turn our attention to an event open to older, more experienced horses. With a minimum rating threshold of 75, this 1600m race has contenders as old as 8 years in the mix. There are subsequently nine stallions, geldings, and mares on the race card for the 2019 edition of the Racing Patrons Trophy. The prize purse for this 5 PM race is quite modest at INR 777600, or around 8800 GBP.
For our Indian horse race betting tips, will have singled out these three horses in this race:
A four-year-old dark brown gelding sired by Top Class (USA) with Mizzna as his dam, Wave Rider comes from the stables of trainer RH Sequeira. Out of his 8 starts, he already has four wins and three second-places. P Koushik will be his jockey for Sunday’s race. Having won his last race, he looks in fine nick at the moment.
Isn’t She Lovely
Sired by Excellent Art (GB) off dam In The Spotlight, this here is a four-year-old chestnut brown filly. Trained by the veteran S Padmanabhan, she has got five wins out of 10 starts, with a trio of second and third place finishes as well. Like Wave Rider, she too scored a win in her last outing and has a recent record that reads 1-5-2-5-1.
This bay gelding is a progeny of King da Ka (AUS) and dam Giacosa. Booker Jones is also the most experienced horse in this race, with over 50 races under his belt, including 7 wins, 15 second places, and 11 third place finishes. Moreover, the 8-year veteran under trainer Darius Byramji is an all-rounder with wins in distances ranging from 1200 to 2800m. Needless to say, he is a very consistent performer.
Our Pick – Wave Rider gets our vote for the top spot if the bookies begin listing at 5/1, but Isn’t She Lovely is a strong pick as well. Booker Jones has a solid record that deserves our long shot pick.
