Diamond Rays has it easy in Chief Minister’s Trophy

  October 3 , 2019

Sriram Komandur trained Diamond Rays who had a modest opposition to take on bounced back to winning ways after a gap of 300 days in the 1200 metres Chief Minister`s Trophy, a race for horses rated 60 and above, the feature event of Thursday`s Mysore races. A lacklustre card was programmed for the day. Jockey Darshan had a double.

Diamond Rays was backed to the exclusion of the rest. Srinath had Diamond Rays in a handy fourth or fifth position even as Side Winder set the pace but surrendered the lead going into the final furlong as the favourite asserted his supremacy. Diamond Rays won by a widening margin of over three lengths with Haedi`s Folly occupying the second position ahead of Side Winder who completely weakened to occupy the third slot.

Narayan Gowda trained Colonel Harty was backed spiritedly to break the sequence of listless run in the 1400 metres M A M Ramaswamy Trophy, a race for horses rated 40 to 65. The odds on the last start winner Kimera widened as the horses entered the post. Colonel Harty was taken on a start to finish mission by jockey Rajesh Kumar and the fancied runner appeared to be on course as Kimera failed to make an impression in the stretch, struggling to change gear. However, the chances of Colonel Harty were ruined because the jockey was unable to correct the outward drift and by the time he gathered the horse and brought him back, Glorious Destiny had slipped into the exploiting the wide gap available along the rails and held on to win by a neck. Kimera was a tame third.

Murcilago and las start winner Cyclone were the fancied runners for the 1200 metres Jog Falls Plate, a race for horses rated 40 to 65. Murcilago had the first run on his opponent shooting ahead in the final furlong with Cyclone in the chase. The eight-year-old Murcilago had enough legs to stave off the challenge of the favourite and prevailed by a length at the finish. Nikka held off Siddhani for the third position.

Lokanath trained Glorious Dancer was backed strongly to come out of the maidens` ranks in her fourth attempt in the 1600 metres Ellora Plate, a race for horses rated 20 to 45. The favourite readily obliged in the hands of jockey R N Darshan who thus had a double for the day. Glorious Dancer chased Big Treasure well into the straight before breaking free in the final furlong for a comfortable win over the late rallying Radiant Treasure. Chantelle necked out Another Rainbow for the third position.

Last start winner Ireland was backed with conviction to record an encore in the 1200 metres Fleet Indian Plate, a race for horses in the lowest category. Jockey Rajesh Kumar brought Ireland wide into the straight and the favourite was lucky to pull it off. Big Time Bay, in the hands of four-kg claiming apprentice Jaiswar got a dream run along the rails and came into strong contention despite the jockey not capable of offering strong support. Ireland, however, managed to put his neck in front at the finish. Felix Legion was third.

Darshan guided the heavily backed Agnar to triumph in the 1400 metres Mandya Plate, a race for horses in the lowest category. Agnar led from the start but cut an erratic course in the final furlong despite which the favourite managed to prevail over the weakly handled Eco Friendly. Swiss Admiral nosed out Dolphin who could have finished closer with better help in the saddle.

The long shot from Saravanan`s stables All In shocked the field in the 1600 metres Jayanagara Plate, a race for horses rated 20 to 45. All In showed up on the wide outside inside the final furlong and managed to edge past the front-running Eloika close home to return rich dividends for those who had a chance bet on the seven-year-old. Favourite Monte Greco ran on late to occupy the third position.
