Another evening race card is slated for Thursday and the Mystical Trophy, named after the Poonawalla-bred super horse who won two races at Dubai some years ago to make the nation proud, has only four class I runners in the fray going over the trip of a mile. Airco, trained by Imtiaz Sait has been asked to give eight-and-a-half kilos to the Dallas Todywalla-trained Shadowfax, who shapes as his main rival."

However, Trevor Patel who will ride Shadowfax has recently been facing weight issues, and may carry some overweight which could prove detrimental to the latter's prospects, especially it it turns out to be a close fight. Airco, to be ridden by Suraj Narredu, therefore gets my nod.

In the Sprungli Plate, a class II affair over 1,800 meters, Highland Breeze may be tactically helped by his bottom position at the scales, and seems to have a decent chance to humble the top-weighted Bullrun. Highland Breeze will be ridden by jockey A Sandesh.

First race at 4.30 pm.
