Ambrosia for Homi Mody Trophy
A small card of only six races is framed today at the Mahalaxmi racetrack, with the Homi Mody Trophy to be run over a mile-and-a-half slated as the feature event. Though only three runners will face the starter in this class one contest, a close finish cannot be ruled out. Ambrosia, trained by Pesi Shroff and to be ridden by Zervan, may gain the day.
While no horse commands as the best betting proposition of the afternoon, the Malesh Narredu-trained Aigaion, who is bound to improve substantially over his debut run, attracts as a good bet in the concluding race of the day.
First race at 3.45 pm.
