A lackluster eight-race card is framed for the juveniles championships day on Sunday at Mahalaxmi, with only five and six runners featuring in the Colts' & Fillies' categories respectively. Interestingly, owner Dr Ramaswamy and trainer S Ganapathy's Oxford Opinion and Eternal Flame, at least on paper, tower over their rivals, and in all probability, will return to the winner's enclosure.
While Eternal Flame shapes as the best betting proposition of the afternoon, Ellipsis, trained by Zadmal Singh, attracts as a good bet in the hands of Trevor Patel in the Rustom P Mehta Trophy.
First race at 2.45 pm.
