I remember meeting a distinguished man in India, who had the reputation of being a great shikaree, who told me that the greatest temptation he had ever had in his life was to shoot a giant snake which he had come across in the Terai of Upper India.
TONY MCCOY broke his own record for the fastest half century of winners by more than a month when landing a short priced treble at Newton Abbot on Marsayas, Running de Cerisy and Shikaree.
However, GLENFIN PRINCESS (2.55 Worcester) looks capable of beating Shikaree while WISE APPROACH (3.55) and SUPER SHARP (4.30) could also win at the track.
