Crimson Rage has edge
M. Reuben

Calcutta: Itís a toss-up between the Darius Byramji-ward Magic Mantra and Vijay Singhís Crimson Rage, the chief contenders in a field of 12 vying for the 1,200m Aphroze Cup on Wednesday. However, the five kg pull at the weights may tilt the scales in favour of Crimson Rage who was an easy third in his last start. Mark Reuben partners the Donít Forget Me-Maumann five-year-old.

Vijayís another ward Athinai, who performed poorly over a 1,400m sprint last Saturday, may make amends in the 2,000m Bengal Area Cup. S.Domingo partners the filly.
