Allabreva may strike it rich

Calcutta: It is going to be a great sprinting event at the RCTC raceground on Saturday. The likes of Strengthtostrengths, Bold Chieftans, Alcaldes, Allabrevas and River Melodys — all champions in their own right — may definitely ensure that the 1,200m HSBC Cup is bagged by a deserving entry only. The terms of the race may be against the heavyweights like Strengthtostrength and Bold Chieftan but they are capable of taking all by surprise.

But the 53-kg weight seems to favouring the southern migrant Allabreva who had shamed a top-class lot three times in-a-row before switching headquarters. To be ridden by Robert Gowli, the Excalibur’s Lake-Melodrama grey horse from trainer Javed Khan’s yard seems to be maintaining his brilliant form if his recent mock-race in the company of Strengthtostrength is any indication.Yes, if the early pace turns too hot, the seven-furlong specialist like Immaculate or Comedy of Errors could be counted upon to do the damage.
