PUNE: The four horses who finished 1-2-3-4 in the grade 3, Eve Champion Trophy three weeks ago will once again try to match strides with one another in a grade 3 race on Saturday--the Idar Gold Trophy, slated to be run as the feature event of the seven-race card.

Although there will be many who will expect the J E McKeown-trained Adjudicate to turn the tables on her conqueror Bushtops thanks to the relative advantage of 3.5 kg at the scales, I feel the latter may still be able to assert his superiority over the longer trip of a mile-and-a-half.
