Subject :'Manifold" makes a dashing win in Bangaluru Derby

The manner in which by now experienced jockey Neeraj Rawal positioned 'Manifold" to make his final assault to win the Bangaluru Derby quite comfortably from favourite "Castlebridge" was a treat to watch.

Trevor cannot be blamed for taking his mount to the front from the word 'go' as he seems to be doing a copybook ride. In fact, there were many who thought the animal will hold on by the proverbial whisker at the wire, but full marks to the winner who had much more left in the tank.

A Imran Khan must be cursing himself for not doing justice on "Perfect Star" who was willing to join the front runners at any stage but kept on tight reins until the last 200 metres which was the undoing.

It was a fairly good Derby day for punters, who believed more in class and form rather than going by the strength of the stable.

Manifold didn't win easily watch the race and the verdict is evident.On any given day CastleBridge is a better animal if ridden judiciously with good intentions.After all why did CastleBridge connections chose to go for start to finish tactics in a 2ooo meters Derby race ??? I can smell something fishy n foul.

If one sees conspiracies even in derby races than might as well pay the charges and watch at home live.

This mania that each and every race is cooked has ruined more than actual betting.

Barring race one in BNG EVERY race was on merit and many were able to pick as many as 5 races How than ?

This year derby was closely matched, according to me most of the jockeys did complete justice in their money was on xenon,which finished 5th,am sure will improve more in future.though I don't like Neeraj he rode a beautiful race on manifold and was a deserving winner.

Here some point for discussion. First of all why Trainer Bharat Singh changed his jockey from C.Alford to Trevor just to attract more betting for Castle Bridge ?
Another drama they paid Rs 22 Lakhs for late entry. All these things are just to make the horse as Be safe as unbeatable horse to draw attention from the public. I do not think one person could be involved there could be many involved in the conspiracy. Now like Be safe they will not run castle bridge as per merit for another few races. At least few hundred crores could have been involved in this conspiracy.

It is time that Jockey Trevor like Aslam Khader should accept only winning mounts or at least with fair chances of winning and should maintain his brand image. If he take all mounts from 8 year old to 3year old people will lose confidence and create irreparable damage. Money can be earned but NOT NAME and REPUTATION. Once lost gone with the wind.

Last week Trainer Srinivas gave a winning mount to C.Umesh and losing mount to Trevor to draw more odds for the winning horse with conspiracy with other trainer. Very Bad. Trevor should accept only winning mounths or with fair chances of winning.

Shaps and SFP, I fully agree with you, on the day Manifold was better and it was her and Trs most well deserved win. Very well done Pasi, Manifold and the entire team. Many more will be in store, God willing. Best of luck.

@ Shaps
Post race it is easy point out WHAT I SAID or WHAT YOU SAID. In a discussion forum like this, lot of people make comments. Opinions can be YES or NO. So there are so many here rejected CB. Ground realities are something else, favourites are beaten in every classic races 90 out of 100. If it was Manifold favourite Castle Bridge should have won. I have pointed out, how Bharath Singh reacted in the paddock after the race, from this you can think how much he was heart broken. Sadly the RM of CB not much interested, it shows whose money was where? Then, I am not here to change anyone's opinion. I trust my eyes and ears. In a free discussion forum like this, every one has the freedom to express their opinion before the race and after the race.

For us 1.59 Crore is a big amount, but for biggies that amount is peanuts. Tote collection at BTC for the said race may have crossed 1 crore. Imagine the volume touched on all India basis in Tote Bets. Entire brigade of bookies stationed outside and also on foreign soil, doing illegal business over 500 Crores per race. You say the owners are living on prize money ???

M.M.please read my comments before the race and also my future predictions it will never win a 2000 mtrs race and will win only 1600 mtr races.
it has been trained like this and suddenly you cannot change his habits.

If you think any one will gift a race worth rs 1,59 crores ,than sadly you are out of touch with owners.

Any way it was not any upset as there was quite backing at 6.5 to 6 s.
Bookies did not make any money at all in this race in fact barring race one hardly made money in any other ones all were backed down.

Come on M M. It was a fair run race. No connection will sacrifice more than Rs 1.58 crores for names sake. Maybe in next run , reverse results could take place.
All horses were systematically prepared. Yesterday was Manifold's day.

Give credit where it belongs.

1st of all congratulations to neeraj rawal and performing shrift for tremendous victory of Derby yesterday ..

when it comes to neeraj rawal he is always a big race jockey something he did which is extraordinary..wen u see his riding in normal racing he looks very ordinary and unreliable jockey ...but wen he rides in a term race he puts extra effort in that he won invitation with temerity guineas with manifold derby with manifold last year derby torsorro... he puts extra efort in big events....

Such COUPS are happening from ADAM's days in horse racing, that is the reason it is called CLASSIC RACES. If the connections are inter-connected, or the trainer is active for both the trainers, and one among the fancied duo is favourite, reversal of form is expected. It is an established fact the horses won in 1000 Guineas or Fillies Trials are inferior to horses won in 2000 Guineas or Colts Trials. There may be some exceptions, but a heavy built horse like Castle Bridge can also lose a race, like Becket lost to stable mate Polish Patriot by Shorthead.
