Commodore for Homi Mody Trophy

The Pesi Shroff-trained Commodore, whose winning run was cut short when he tried to match strides with top class horses in the Idar Gold Cup at Pune, is now returning to the handicap fold, and is asked to carry bottom weight in the Homi Mody Trophy, the feature event of Thursday's seven-race card under the lights.

Though he is facing some decent horses, like Severus and Phenomenal Memory who have been winners in class I, and a form horse like Magnificence who has reeled off three straight victories at Pune, I feel the four-year-old son of Danehill Dancer should be able to give a good account of himself and win the prime event.

Another betting proposition could be Vulcan in the opening race of the card. The Adhirajsingh Jodha-trained three-year-old colt was shocked as a piping hot favourite by Frosty who is also in the fray, but there is a fair chance he will be able to turn the tables on her in the hands of jockey Sandesh, especially with a three-and-half-kilo advantage at the scales vis-a-vis last run.

First race at 5.00 pm.
