Nationalistic, Callisto may strike

Calcutta: Trainers Singh brothers — Vijay and Bharath — and Daniel David, too, are expected to be the main players in Wednesday’s race-card. If Daniel’s Nationalistic looks good to cash in on his superior upcountry form and lift the Galstaun Cup, the Eastern Air Command Cup seems to be at the mercy of Vijay’s Callisto— a runaway winner during the monsoon season. In other events, Bharath’s Adducer and Vijay’s Actuate are at tidy mark to win their respective events. David, on the other hand, may also see his Midas Touch doing the trick again after last week’s win.Read as Horse nos, last four runs, horse name, trainer, jockey, weight & draw:
