Astapi for Eve Champion Trophy
The grade 3, Eve Champion Trophy, which is slated as the feature event of Saturday's ten-race card, has attracted only four runners.
The Sanjay Kolse-trained Bling will be strongly fancied, but I think Astapi, who is bidding for a hat-trick over today's trip of ten furlongs, has better credentials to land the spoils. The older Native Knight can also add pep to the finish.
