A well-filled seven-race card is framed for Thursday at the Mahalaxmi track, the Smart Chieftan Trophy for top class horses featuring as the prime event.

The six-furlong contest promises to be extremely thrilling despite there being only six runners in the fray, because at least three of the six — Ageless, Providence and Quick Fire — are running with a realistic chance to hope for a victory. I expect the first-named to triumph narrowly.

The Pesi Shroff-trained Maleficent towers over her nine rivals in the Algeciras Plate, a sprint over six furlongs for class II horses, and therefore, shapes as the best betting proposition of the afternoon.

Another Shroff ward, Heather, attracts as a good bet in the Astana Plate, a nine-furlong affair for class IV horses.
First race at 2pm.
