‘Flame’ lifts Guineas

Calcutta, Nov. 22: Maiden till date, Psychic Flame surprised her more celebrated rivals in the Calcutta 1000 Guineas, the first classic of the winter season held on Saturday. C. Alford literally had an armchair ride on the Darius Byramji-trained three-year-old filly by Razeen out of Eminence.

Trailing the field of five till 600m from home, the Flame produced an electrifying run in the home stretch to walk away with the trophy.

The Mayfowl Cup, the sporting event in the afternoon’s eight-event card, was an equally easy pick for the Bharath Singh-trainee Allodium — ridden by visiting jockey M. Poirier.
