Rarely an unraced three-year-old has impressed me as much as Supreme General did when running and winning a mock race on the Mahalaxmi track three weeks ago. Locked under a tight grip of jockey Neeraj Rawal, the got abroad Old Forester - Fiery Pegasus progeny was never off the bit as he surged forward with effortless strides to sweep past his rivals, giving a clear hint that he is in a league of his own. He is expected to make a winning debut in the Tata Housing Season Ending Juvenile Multi-million, the stellar attraction of the final day's evening racing card that will bring the curtain down on a memorable Mumbai season 2015-16.
Rosella, trained by Faisal Abbas and to be ridden by Trevor Patel, appeals as another decent bet of the nine-race card, and is expected to win the lower division of the Racing Officials Trophy.
