The licensed bookmakers who were raided by the police on Friday evening yesterday failed to secure bail from the magistrate of the holiday court who has remanded them to police custody until Monday. So there will be no bookmakers in the Mumbai ring today. Only tote will be operational.

Coming back to racing, a small field of only five runner will face the starter for the Gr 2, Maharaja Jiwajirao Scindia Trophy, the prime event of the seven-race card programmed at the Mahalaxmi racetrack. Going by his last good second to Cambridge in the first week of this month Caprisca, trained by Imtiaz Sait and to be ridden by Robbie Downey, has the best credentials to win.
