Clymene for Shantidas Askuran Trophy
Though Glyndebourne has beaten Clymene at Pune over the same trip, I feel the latter was not at her best on that day, and should now be able to turn the tables on her conqueror in the hands of S Zervan
An eight-race card is slated at the Mahalaxmi racecourse for Thursday, with the Shantidas Askuran Trophy, a sharp five-furlong sprint for class II horses, as the prime attraction. There are nine runners in the fray, and five of them--Clymene, Glyndebourne, Wild Fire, Wise Child and Summer Rays--deserve serious attention.
Though Glyndebourne has beaten Clymene at Pune over the same trip, I feel the latter was not at her best on that day, and should now be able to turn the tables on her conqueror in the hands of S Zervan.
