Callisto lifts main event

Calcutta: Trainer Vijay Singh had three entries in Wednesday’s six-event card and his score at the end of the day read two wins — both trophy events — and a third. More importantly, the crafty schooler turned out to be a saviour for punters as lesser fancied horses, once again, ruled the afternoon.

Although, Vijay’s Assailer in the 1,200m Mr Mauritius Cup, was close in demand after the 6-4 favourite Activity, the three-year-old was as impressive a winner as Callisto, an odds-on favourite who claimed the feature event, the Robin Hood Cup. Callisto, a Brave Hunter-Aunti Katie four-year-old filly, made every post of the 1,100m race a winning one.

Trainer Javed Khan, too, led-in a brace of winners — Venus and Actualite — but the later, in a close finish for the Finalist Handicap, had to shared the prize with Queen Of The Nile, a Daniel David-trained-filly.
