Dyna for Potential Champion Trophy
The Potential Champion Trophy for unraced three-year-old horses, which is slated as the feature event of today's nine-race card, has attracted a dozen runners.
Going by the preparation on trial track, five of them - Dyna, Victoria Falls, Affirmation, Arta & Doc Holiday - appear to be in a forward condition, and the winner, in all likelihood, should emerge from this quintet.
My choice is Dyna, trained by Faisal Abbas and to be ridden by C S Jodha. Two horses trained by Adhirajsingh Jodha, Sumo & Phelps, are decent bets in their respective races. Both will be ridden by Vaibhav, who is showing a lot of promise this season.
First race at 1.30 pm.
