Such is the imposing reputation of Be Safe, that despite coming out to race after a gap of more than five months, the Malesh Narredu-trained and Dr MAM Ramaswamy-owned three-year-old will perhaps go out as the shortest-priced runner in the history of the ABV Indian 2000 Guineas (Gr 1), the stellar attraction of Sunday's eight-race card slated for the Mahalaxmi races.
Costa Del Sol and Mariinsky, both trained by Pesi Shroff, shape as the two other dependable bets of the card.
