Vijay, Javed rule the day

Calcutta: Trainer Vijay Singh made a cleansweep of the three trophy events in Wednesday’s six-event card, while his fellow-professional, Javed Khan, notched up a brace of winners on an afternoon ruled by favourites.

It was the two-year-old debutant Aperitivo, who fully justified his short-odds in the Dangerous Romance Cup and set the ball rolling for Vijay’s stable. Adderly, looking slightly gross during the paddock-parade, followed suit at generous odds of 5-4 in the Fame Star Cup, thus putting the trainer and his stable rider C. Alford on a hattrick trail. The duo duly achived the target when their less-fancied Inside Story landed the Manasseh Memorial Cup with a degree of comfort.

Javed took over from where Vijay left off. The fluent start-to-finish victory of his even-money favourite Toe Poke was well on the cards and the double followed when the stable’s Mayan Hiss won her race coming with a late run in the home stretch. M. Reuben partnered the two Javed winers.
