Well Connected has an edge over her rivals

The Deccan Derby (2,000m), the star attraction of the season to be run this afternoon, has a field of seven runners.

Well Connected, who is unbeaten in all her four starts, including three Classics, appears to have an edge over her rivals. The Deccan Colts Championship Stakes winner Impavid, which is also in the fray, should provide keen competition.

The carried over amount of ₹1,50,000 and ₹4,84,280 will be added to the 1st and 2nd jackpot pools respectively.
