ARTFUL Simply Too Good For RivalsBy S C SHARMA | 05-Jun-2019
Full kudos to trainer C D Monnappa for training of Artful in ship shape condition and the full brother to Gintoki and half sister to Desert Lilly (out of Varenar-Sine Qua No) proved too good for her other 10 runners/rivals and smashed the field with a good turn of foot making it start to finish affair in debut run in a very smart time of 1.10.62 for a six furlong trip.
Being a first timer I thought she may need a outing but when tons of load coming in for betting, it was clear her connections are fancying her to trounce the opposition. Cracksman have to content for second place and wait for his turn to clear maiden status. My first choice was Cracksman and second choice was Artful but after watching the run of Artful I have to admit that she was simply too good and superb.
What impressed me most is Artful shot to the front and travelling at very fast pace and never allowed any rival to come nearer and won easing up and her timing for this trip is very very good, rated almost to class 1 and 2 horses. Lot will be more heard about her in coming days and she will be real danger over sprint races and likely to retain her supremacy over others.
