Pune: The Threptin Fillies' & Mares' Stakes (Gr 3) is the prime attraction of Sunday's seven-race card. Though only six runners are in the fray, the arrival of Watchmyscript from the Bangalore-based trainer Irfan Ghatala's yard has added an interesting dimension to this contest.

While the local hopes will most probably be pinned on Roberta and La Rondine, I will not be surprised if Auburn, who seems to be a completely transformed mare as evidenced by her last impressive victory, shocks them all.
