Impavid for South India Derby Stakes (Gr.1)

Impavid did beat the fellow Bangaloreans in the Kingfisher Derby Bangalore, Gr.1 in July but that, perhaps, was the best race he ran in his eight-start career in which he has never been off-the-board. He has won two Classics since then -- Deccan Colts' Championship Stakes, Gr.3 and South India 2000 Guineas, Gr.2 -- but both the races were over a mile and the manner of his victories was workmanlike rather than authoritative. It is his run between those two Classics that is worrying and it came in the Deccan Derby, Gr.1 where he was a sluggish third to Consigliori and lesser fancied stable-mate Royal Crystal though he did finish ahead of Well Connected. who had beaten him in that thrilling race at Bangalore. Being the highest rated runner in the field, he does hold a realistic chance in The South India Derby Stakes (Gr.1), that is the scheduled to be held on Wednesday. Southern Ruler and Sir Supremo will be the main threat for Impavid.
