Daniel, Amyn may dictate terms

Calcutta: It may pay to follow the Daniel David-Amyn Merchant combinations in Wednesday’s race-card. The duo is likely to dominate proceedings in most of the six events in the frame, including the 1,100m La Gitana Cup for horses in Class II. Daniel has three horses running for the trophy but his charge Moon Mission has the best credentials. On the opening day of the season, she cut an erratic course and thus was relegated to the second slot after winning the race.The Always A Rainbow-Moccasin four-year-old is expected to mend her shortcomings in the hands of Merchant.

In the Zelda Cup, Bharath Singh’s Rescue Act, however, has the edge over his six rivals, including Daniel’s Bay Dragon. The five-year-old by Procida out of Irresistible is not only looking well, he is also well in at the weights.

Daniel’s Amber Song, Bright And Clear and Land of Fantasy may also lift their respective events. Read as Horse nos, last four runs, horse name, trainer, jockey, weight & draw:
