Vijay, Richard share spoils

Calcutta: Matching their December 4 score, trainers Vijay Singh and Richard Alford picked up a brace of winners apiece at the RCTC raceground on Wednesday. For Vijay it was a trophy double to keep his scoreboard ticking but the veteran trainer Alford pulled off a massive gamble to the discomfiture of bookrmakers when Arian justified his backing from 8ís down to 2ís in the betting Ďring.í Darth Vader, a 6-1 shot in the curtain-raiser, the Cradle Of The Deep Handicap, had opened Richardís dayís account.

Vijay started off with a narrow miss following his baby colt Modestoís short-head failure to Javed Khanís Toe Poke in the Little Lady Plate. However, the crafty trainerís Artisia landed the dayís feature, the Bengal Area Cup, in the hands of apprentice Malcom Maseyk before jockey Cristopher Alford atop Arrival simply cruised home with the Mas díAntibes Cup.
