CALDER: Three pounds gone


The local jockey colony lost one of its ten pound bug riders on Sunday after John Delgado guided Mr Gold Prospect to a popular and easy victory in the second race. The win was the fifth lifetime for the promising apprentice who'll now ride with a seven pound allowance.

Although there is a threat of rain, the track is fast and turf firm for today's card. A moderate tailwind prevails once again out of the east with the course seemingly playing fair to this point in the card. 

Charismaticspring opened at 1-9 for the fourth race, the afternoon's first turf test, but has drifted to 8-5 and figures to go off the  second choice behind Evenforever at post time.
