Training their thoughts on Derby

It’s (Kimmane Bangalore Derby) going to be the same distance as the (Bangalore) Oaks. Having won it, we are confident of another victory. It has being training really hard and has maintained her form very well. We’re game for the challenge tomorrow.

Super Storm’s chances are bright. He has the best credentials to land the spoils. VR DeSousa is an excellent jockey and I am very confident of him anchoring Super Storm to victory. He’s is fine condition and if he runs as per form and with god’s grace I see ourselves on the podium.

Red Baron is right up there this Derby. He’s made for a mile-and-a-half and he has proved himself with a fine victory in the 2400-metre long Sir Sultan Chinoy Trophy (last October in Pune). It’s going to be a battle between Snow Bird, Super Storm and Red Baron and I hope Red Baron puts his best foot forward.

It’s not a very hot Derby field. The best horses of Bangalore are away either in Mumbai training for the Indian Derby or in Hyderabad for Sunday’s Golconda Stakes. I feel it’s a very open race and State Secret has a definite chance.
