Network lifts HRC Cup

Calcutta: Dispelling doubts about his sprinting abilities, the even-money favourite Network easily claimed the 1,200m Hyderabad Race Club Cup on Wednesday. Looking well-tuned for the event, the last winterís 2000 Guineas winner was hardly under pressure while handing the lowly weighted Barrier Ridge a two-length-plus beating. Trained by Vijay Singh, jockey C. Alford partnered the four-year-old by Twist And Turn out of Net Net Net. Earlier in the afternoon, an odds-on favourite Alexine had delivered the goods for the jockey-trainer combinations.

However, their efforts to reel off a treble was foiled by trainer Daniel David and his stable-jockey Amyn Merchant in the Goolagong Cup when Dashing Chief scored a narrow victory over the favourite Arrayal. Latter in the day, a strongly fancied Blushing Queen triumphed for Daniel and Amyn in the Quincy Handicap. The other professional, who notched up a brace of wins in the seven-event card, was trainer Harvinder Singh Bath. Bathís aged and trusted Rheinheart and Tequila Shot won their respective events.
