Ancient Wonder can shock rivals
The Akkasaheb Maharaj Trophy, may turn out to be the trickiest race of the nine-race card what with each of the eight top class runners in the fray capable of taking a serious shot at the winner's prize
My choice is Ancient Wonder who may run relatively friendless because he flopped as a favourite when he raced last time. I expect him to make amends after the four-week rest and put his best foot forward today.
First race at 1.30 pm.
