Wild Fire faces stern test
The speedy filly, to be ridden by Dashrath Singh, will have to be extremely alert right from the gates as she takes on Clymene
The Narendra Lagad-trained Wild Fire, who failed on the opening day of the current season, but quickly returned the following week to make amends and resume winning ways, will face a stern test in the Dinkoo N Chenoy Trophy, the feature event of Friday's six-race card.
The speedy filly, to be ridden by Dashrath Singh, will have to be extremely alert right from the gates as she takes on Clymene (S Zervan up), another speedball who has yet to lose a five-furlong sprint. To add further intrigue, the presence of Glyndebourne (P Trevor up) and Double Nine (PS Chouhan up) in the fray is bound to make the finish exciting.
All said, I expect Wild Fire to just about prevail over Clymene and Glyndebourne in a close finish.
