Batista enjoys a thick edge

Calcutta: Arti Doctor trained horse, Batista (Shezad Khan-up), who is well in at the weights, is fancied to win the 1,400m Hilliard Cup, Sunday’s main attraction in the eight-event race card. However, with false rails in position, it does not look like a cakewalk for the likely favourite. The top-weighted Star Empire is sure to relish the extra ground and he may trouble Batista.
