PUNE: The longest race in the country's racing calendar, Suresh Mahindra Trophy to be ridden over two miles, is slated as the prime event of Saturday's eight-race card.

There are only five runners in the fray, of which Rodeo and Highlander are expected to fight at the end of the 3,200-meter trip. The latter, thanks mainly to the in-form Trevor Patel who will assist him in the saddle, is expected to score.

First race at 1.30 pm.
