Kolkata Derby Day selections 1/101/17
1.00 #2 SMITH AND WESSON will strip fitter second-up from spell and can shed his maiden tag with massive switch in rider.
#3 TOMORROW FOREVER showed good improvement last start while finishing close 3rd. Will appreciate the rise in trip and can upset.
1.30 #7 PANCHOVILLA has run well at both starts since a break. Extra distance ideal and this only 3yo in this field gets chance to win under strong rider.
2.00 Bangalore import #8 MALANA is working well and has matched strides with superior horses. If new stable have her fit enough she can win this.
2.30 #1 JUMP AND RUN had a good fought win here last start. Harder here with 4kg up and stepping up in distance but can't knock winning form.
At this feather weight #9 IVY can give this a shake. Keep an eye.
3.00 #8 MIDNIGHT STAR has put the writing on the wall with strong showings at his past two starts including his win over Bang Bang by 6 lengths. Well weighted in this company and is the one to beat.
3.30 Mumbai challenger from champion trainer's yard #5 DAFFODILS is in great heart at present winning three on the trot. She'll appreciate the rise in trip and should be hard to beat.
4.00 #6 WASHINGTON has dominated in recent runs at this track and this doesn't look any harder. Likely to bring up the hat-trick.
4.30 #1 JACKNIFE struggled last start after working hard in the lead. Locked and loaded for an improved showing back to this grade. Don't discount.
