One Kept Secret, to be ridden by Trevor Patel, if fit and interested, can humble his 14 rivals to win the Charles Forbes Trophy, the main event of Thursday's nine-race card. Racing as an uninterested favourite in his last run at Pune, the Sunderji ward finished a tame fourth. However, that run should not be taken at face value, and he should be given a very serious thought as a bettable proposition if he receives smart money from the connections at race time.
Ocean Dream & Flanker, fancied to win the divisions of the Free Radical Plate, shape as good bets of the afternoon.
