Padmanabhan steals show with a treble

  January 11 , 2019

Trainer Padmanabhan saddled three winners to steal the show on Friday at Bangalore. The day`s feature event went the way of Sulaiman Attaollahi who held off the late flourish of Naazaan to win as a strong favourite. The only other favourite to oblige was Hafnium. The day was dominated by lesser fancied runners. Jockey David Allan was successful on all his three rides of the day.

Cerise Noir had failed to carry her supremacy over a mile-long trip and had disappointed in the Guineas. Now back to a more suitable trip of seven furlongs, Cerise Noir was backed to the exclusion of the rest. Jockey Sandesh took the progeny of Win Legend on a start to finish mission. The favourite established a winning cushion in the final furlong. Naazaan who is more suitable for longer trips, warmed up to the task rather late and came home with a rush to be a noteworthy second ahead of last start winner Louisiana.

Padmanabhan trained Royal Resolution had a forward run last time out and based on that effort, was backed strongly in the 1400 metres Kalhatti Falls Plate (Div I), a race for horses rated 15 to 35. Jockey David Allan had the fancied runner chase the pace-setting Vail before taking charge on turning for home. Royal Resolution then established what turned out to be the winning cushion and the second favourite managed to thwart the late rally of favourite Armenia who warmed up to the task rather late to make an impact on the result. Royal Resolution held on by a fast diminishing margin of a short neck. Vail who did all the front-running, stayed on to take the third position. Another Padmanabhan trainee Foi Et Amour recorded an impressive win in the lower division of the race. Debutant Cosmos was fancied to make a winning debut. Memoriter who had the benefit of a forward run had the first run on his opponents but inside the final furlong was overhauled by Cosmos. Foi At Amour covered ground from behind and essayed her challenge in the final furlong. In the hands of jockey David Allan, Foi At Amour easily measured the favourite and won by two lengths. Desert Angel who was tailed off last, covered ground in the stretch to save place money.

Neil Darashah trained Here And Now once again let down huge expectations in the 1100 metres Topmost Plate, a race for maiden three-year-olds. With two runs under his belt, Here And Now was backed to the exclusion of the rest with muted support for Philharmonic. Karadeniz set the pace with Philharmonic in about the fourth position ahead of Desert Rose and Here And Now. The last named moved up briskly approaching the final bend and took over the running in the stretch. The Prasanna Kumar trainee Desert Rose showed up on the outside of the favourite. The two fought out the final furlong with Desert Rose prevailing with a fair degree of comfort. Philharmonic had an educative run when finishing third.

Harmonia from the stables of trainer Pradeep Annaiah won the 1100 metres Gadag Plate, a race for horses rated 15 to 35. The odds offered on Mercury shot up like it does in summer while that on Star Man crashed in the betting ring. Harmonia was available at long odds. Mercury ran in patches and finished in the ruck. He had been withdrawn on the last occasion because of lameness and there was no change in the status as he came back lame once again. Srinath had Harmonia measure Prodigal inside the final furlong and the lesser fancied runner won with a measure of comfort. Star Man ran on strongly, but the cause had been lost and he had to be satisfied with the third position. Star Man reportedly bled.

Another favourite from the stables of Neil Darashah to bite the dust was Game Changer in the 1400 metres K S Premchand Memorial Trophy, a race for horses rated 30 to 50. Based on his eye-catching second behind Gerontocrat, Game Changer was backed to the exclusion of the rest. The lesser fancied Sumer Palace had the lead going into the final furlong and shaped to cause an upset but faltered, drifting out under pressure. Game Changer who had to be goaded to improve, did well to grab the lead in the final 100 metres but was nosed out by long shot War Envoy who travelled the widest of all in the straight. War Envoy was ridden by Imran Chisty and trained by Imtiaz Khan and was winning after 742 days. Summer Palace was third. Things did not work out for jockey Suraj Narredu who was astride the favourite. He found himself on four losing favourites in close finishes during the day.

Padmanabhan trained Lawrence of Arabia who had been raced sparingly because he had bled in the past, swamped the opposition in the 1600 metres Srirangapattana Plate, a race for horses rated 15 to 35. David Allan had Lawrence of Arabia settled behind the front-running Extremelydangerous and the progeny of Excellent Art skipped clear in the straight to record an emphatic win. The heavily backed Gold Mist could not make any impression and was a tame fourth.

Kishan Thomas trained Hafnium obliged as a strong favourite in the 1200 metres Shivaganga Plate, a race for horses rated 0 to 20. Hafnium came into contention in the final furlong and after a brief tussle for supremacy with Kruger Park, stormed ahead to win with a measure of comfort. Kruger Park managed to nose out Aerospeed to get the runner-up berth.
