Alcalde may come good
Rutherford

Calcutta: Things are not going to be any different on the second day of the season. Only the fitter horses are expected to survive the monsoon race-track test. Therefore, last week’s winners and horses with benefit of outings may find themselves in an advantageous position against the rest.

However, none of the eight runners in the afternoon’s feature event, the Gamble For Love Cup, enjoys such an advantage. Therefore, the battle for the winner’s bracket may confine to Alcalde, Lockers Park, Anokato and Calamint. From among them, it is the Bharath Singh-duo of Alcalde and Lockers Park who enjoy the edge. There is little to chose between the two but Alcalde being a top class sprinter may get the better of Lockers Park who, incidentally, is the horse for the monsoon course. Rutherford partners Alcalde.
