Eight for the Sunday Classic

Calcutta: There are 17 races, all Trophy events, in the Derby weekend’s card, beginning Saturday. Eight horses have accepted to contest for the most important Classic of the season, the 2,400m Eveready Calcutta Derby Stakes — a Grade I race, which is the main attraction in Sunday’s nine-event card. Silverina, the runaway winner of the 2,400m Calcutta Oaks, is the only filly in the Derby field. The field also includes two final entries, by way of Malpensa — the winner of the Calcutta 2,000 Guineas — and Borsalino who failed as an odds-on favourite in the same race. The 1,200m the The Telegraph Cup, which is 14-horse strong, is another attraction in the Derby Day card. Saturday’s eight-event card is equally attractive with the 1,200m Calcutta Champions’ Sprint Trophy, also a Graded race, taking the centre stage. The programme, on Sunday, starts at 12noon, while on Saturday it begins at 12.30pm.SATURDAY’S RUNNERS
