Andreus claims feature

Vijay Singh with Andreus (Shailesh Shinde-up)

Calcutta: Trainer Vijay Singh’s Andreus (Shailesh Shinde-up) easily won the 1,400m Gumaan Cup, which the 17-10 favourite virtually made a pillar-to-post affair. The day was again dominated by Vijay Singh who scored a treble, taking his season’s tally to 15 wins. Jockey C. Alford also helped two of trainer’s favourites score in desperately close finishes.

Meanwhile, Mysore regular season is all set to start from Thursday as jockeys called off their agitation, on Wednesday. The day one card features the H.H. Sri Jayachamaraja Wadiyar Memorial Trophy.
