A nine-race card is framed for Saturday, and the Rajaram Chhatrapati Trophy for class II horses to be run over the distance of nine furlongs is slated as the feature event.
Though only five runners are in the fray, the contest promises to be quite exciting with Fortune Favours and Snowing more suited to the longish trip than Simply Sweet, a seven-furlong specialist, who has the speed numbers on his side, but will be extending herself over nine furlongs for the first time.
I expect Fortune Favours to score narrowly over Snowing and Simply Sweet.
The Unicorn, Governor General and Light The Sky may delight the followers of money as all three of them appear a cut above the rest in their respective races.
First race at 1.30 pm.
