Adam, Tintinnabulation score

Bred to stay further but effective at 1,400m, the lightly-raced Adam (by Multidimensional) almost won over a shorter trip at Mumbai last month. Sent off as the favourite here for the The Hindu Sprinters’ Cup on the basis of that effort, he did not disappoint.

However, he needed every single one of the 1,200m on offer to be able to get his outstretched neck in front of the luckless Dancing Phoenix, who led everywhere but at the post. Adam was way back in the middle of the pack at the halfway mark but put in a spectacular effort on the outside to prevail in a breathtaking finish in a track record time.

The Mysore challenger Constantine was an excellent third. The winner, bred at the Usha Stud, was saddled by Pesi Shroff and ridden brilliantly by P. Trevor.

Class tells

Various training troubles prevented Hyderabad’s leading trainer Vittal Deshmukh from getting a run into Tintinnabulation (by Intikhab) since his last appearance under silks in November. But the winner of the 2013 Indian Turf Invitation Cup regained fitness with the aid of a mock race and there was quiet confidence in his camp, which turned out not to have been misplaced.

Ace rider Pradeep Chouhan allowed various rivals to exhaust themselves in the Villoo Poonawalla Stayers’ Cup before coming with a wet sail to stroll home unchallenged. The Hazara Stud-bred prevailed over Toroloco and the public choice, Agostini.
