Being a filly can go against the favorite after the hard four runs in the season which is hotting up. The Shroff pair of MACCHIPICCHU AND XISCA were well in contention in the last furlong in the Derby and one of them can upset. XISCA has got the feel of the turf and the opposition and has scope to win in 2nd attempt of the season.
