Dashing Chief may upstage stablemate

Calcutta: With the RCTC top brass meaning business now, things are bound to improve. The failure of favourites since the beginning of the season has been a cause of concern in RCTC. Moreover, trainer Vijay Singh’s stronger representation in Wednesday’s race card may also restore normalcy to an extent.

However, with Another Time and Dashing Chief making a strong bid in the afternoon’s main event — the 1,400m Mysore Race Club Cup — trainer Daniel David appears to enjoy a thick edge over the field. But Dashing Chief’s forward condition may help the Chief upstage stablemate.
