Star Chieftan may stop Immaculate

Calcutta: It looks like a toss up between Star Chieftan and Immaculate in the 1,200m Hyderabad Race Club Cup, Thursday’s main event. With Amyn Merchant deciding to partner Immaculate, the Daniel David-trainee is going to be the ‘ring’ favourite. But the presence of Star Chieftan — Daniel’s new possession from the south — who is placed only 2-1/2 kg above Immaculate, may make Merchant’s task difficult. The Placerville-Queen Ann four-year-old not only enjoys age advantage over the six-year-old gelding he also boasts of his decent summer and winter seasons form against top-class opposition. His drawback on the day could be his jockey, Asghar. Yet, given a free run the superior class of Star Chieftan may help him score over Immaculate.
