Pune: Only five runners are in the fray for the class I, Gamble For Love Trophy, the stellar attraction of Sunday's eight-race card. The race may still turn out to be very competitive with Acclaimed and Falcon as top two contenders, and One Wish as the joker in the pack. I expect Acclaimed (P Trevor up) to get stronger at the business end of the mile trip.
Top Commander, who let down a large following when racing as favourite last time, is expected to make amends in the hands of A Sandesh, and shapes as a bettable proposition in the Amber Royal Plate, and Tammy O, who faltered close home in last outing, attracts as a good bet of the afternoon.
First race at 1.30 pm.
