ALDEBRO HAS EDGE OVER JEWELLER 
 
 
BY STAR RACER
 
Calcutta, Sept. 19: 
With trainer Vijay Singh literally taking a day off tomorrow, the focus in the race-card will be on Richards, Daniels and Bharaths. Vijay’s major hopefuls tomorrow are Jeweller and Aldebro in the feature, the 2,000m Monsoon Cup. Between the two, Aldebro appears to be a better choice on two counts. The Steinbeck-Treasure’s Nest four-year-old not only enjoys a significant 6-kg pull at the weights from Jeweller, he has also been beating the Steinbeck-Rhein Jewel son in workouts. Md Amil will partners the gelding.
