In a small field of six juveniles that will face the starter, half of whom are making debut, Apache, trained by Pesi Shroff and to be ridden by S Zervan, has an edge that can prove decisive over the six-furlong trip of the Sahachari Foundation Cup, the main event of Thursday's nine-race Mahalaxmi card. In fact, Zervan could be the professional to watch as all his five mounts on the card have a decent chance to return to the winner's enclosure.
