Solomon best for X'mas Day
Solomon, trained by Pesi Shroff and to be ridden by Trevor Patel, attracts as the best betting proposition of the Christmas Day card at the Mahalaxmi racecourse. The Vijay Mallya-owned three-year-old is in rousing form at present as evidenced by his last victory, and is expected to humble Zander who appears to be his main rival in the dozen-horse field.
