Field day for Daniel, Amyn

Calcutta: Trainer Daniel David and his stable jockey Amyn Merchant made a clean sweep of Thursday’s six-event card. The duo not only lifted the 1,400m Hilliard Cup through their classic hope Red Chief, they also went on to strike quadruple of wins apiece.

Red Chief apart, Merchant also helped Daniel’s favourites, King Nicholas and Far Hope, win their respective events. Daniel’s fourth winner, Terrificco — a rank outsider in the Wiseman Cup — was, however, partnered by Md Amil.

Earlier in the afternoon, riding a well-judged race, Merchant had booted home trainer Errol Bhungard’s Gallant Romeo in the Salvage Handicap.
