The third weekend of March is shaping up to be a busy horse racing time for several Turf Clubs across India. The winter sessions are in full swing at Chennai, Kolkata, and Mumbai, which means the horse racing schedule is filling up. Our spotlight this week will be on a couple of big races in Mumbai on Sunday, March 17th, at the Mahalaxmi Race Course, which is part of the Royal Western India Turf Club. Check out these great free Indian horse racing tips.
What Are Our Indian Horse Racing Tips For The Weekend?
The Forbes Breeders’ Juvenile Fillies Championship
This Grade III Indian horse race is exclusively for 3-year-old fillies born in India. Nine horses are set to cover a distance of around 1600m in this race. Based on current form, the following horses should be on top of the list of probables:
Thailand – With one win and a second place in her first two races this season, this filly has got off to a great start. Trained by Hosidar Daji, Thailand looks the strongest for Sunday’s Indian horse race that features a mediocre field.
Enid Blyton – Though yet to score a win in her three horse racing starts this year, Enid Blyton has been in the money in two of them, both 1000m sprints. In a longer 1400m Grade 1 Multi-million, she managed a commendable 6th (out of 13). Trained by A A Ahmed, this filly could easily claim a top-3 spot on Sunday.
Free Gold – She started with a bang in January, winning the Grade III Gool S Poonawalla Million in Mumbai. However, in the Grade I event in February, Free Gold disappointed with a 9th place finish out of 13 horses. She is trained by veteran I A Sait and has an outside chance in the Sunday race.
Our Pick – Sunday presents a great opportunity for Thailand to extend her good run into a Grade III race, but Enid Blyton has the form and pedigree to pip her to the post at this Mumbai horse race. Free Gold is our long shot choice for these Indian horse racing tips.
The Shapoorji Pallonji Breeder’s Juvenile Colt’ Championship
This is yet another Grade III race, this time for 3-year-old Indian colts and geldings. The race distance is around 1600m. The race card lists 14 horses registered for the race. Of these thoroughbreds, the following have caught the eye in recent weeks and months:
Mystic Bay – Foaled in 2016, this 3-year-old colt recorded his maiden win in his debut race just a week ago in the Keukenhof Plate 1400m race on 7th March 2019. Trained by M Narredu, Mystic Bay should be aiming at maintaining his 100% record come Sunday.
Trouvaille – This 3-year old gelding trained by S K Sunderji is nothing if not a consistent performer. He has maintained a 100% record with 3 placings in 3 starts this year in January and February in Mumbai. Judging by form alone, he should be a strong top 3 contender on Sunday.
Square The Circle – Trained by Mohd. Sajid Qureshi, this colt has had an impressive start in 2019 at Myrose. He secured a win in the Crown Treasure Plate in January, followed by a strong third-place finish in the 1400m Mysore City Gold Cup. Square the Circle has the potential to pull off an upset in his first race at Mumbai this season.
Our Pick – Mystic Bay looks strong for another win, but will have to best Trouvaille over the 1600m to claim it. Square The Circle has the potential to pip them both to the post but it remains a long shot. The odds are too long for these Indian horse racing tips.
