Horse racing: Feature race poses a riddle
There are eight juveniles in the fray. Among them, three first-timers Brilliant Gold, Memorable Eyes and Sultan Suleiman will be taking on the somewhat experienced quintet
Sunday's seven-race card appears to be very competitive, and the feature race, the Southern Command Gold Trophy for 3y old maiden horses, the most difficult to solve.
There are eight juveniles in the fray. Among them, three first-timers--Brilliant Gold, Memorable Eyes and Sultan Suleiman--will be taking on the somewhat experienced quintet of Cliffs Of Capri, Revelator, Walk The Talk, Principessa & Rather Tippy. I have a feeling that Sultan Suleiman (A Sandesh up) can win on debut, but if you wish to spin a roulette wheel to pick the winner, you may have as good a chance to beat my choice.
First race at 1.30 pm.
