Itís Aretino vs Richie Rich

Calcutta: It may turn out to be a close contest between Aretino and Richie Rich in the 2,000m Calcutta Derby Trial Stakes, the main attraction in Wednesdayís race card. The former, a Vijay Singh-trainee, has had adequate preparations for the Derby in Bangalore.

However, with a victory on the uphill Bangalore racetrack under his belt, Aretino, who will be ridden by C. Alford, gets preference over Richie Rich.
