Vijay Singhr

Calcutta: Although Announcer was made to sweat it out, in his last start, before the Vijay Singh-trainee could take the measure of Sky Command and Moon Mission, yet the Tecorno-Karishmaís Pet son is fancied to win the Magnanimous Cup at the RCTC Wednesday. The four-year-old gelding is looking improved and he may beat his his main challengers ó The Flying Star and Birdís Empire.

The 1,200m Own Opinion Cup is the other trophy event in the seven-event card but the fancied runners may have to pray for a trouble-free galloping room in a 13-horse field. Nevertheless, on his last start impressive victory, Bold Apparel gets the first call. The Errol Bhungard-trainee may have faced a strong challenge from his owner-mate Terrificco had the trip been longer than the slated sprint. Amyn Merchant partners the horse.
