Horse Racing: Quadrangular fight in feature event
The joker in the pack could be B Fifty Two who must have raised his fitness level thanks to a forward run in last start
Ten top class horses have jumped into the fray for the Ebco Maharaja Sir Harishinghji Trophy (Gr 2), the feature event of Sunday's six-race evening card. While all eyes will on the MK Jadhav-trained Themis (A Sandesh up), who posted a fluent victory in the grade 2, C N Wadia Gold Cup four weeks ago, there are at least three other who can post a dramatically improved performance over the mile trip.
Themis will have to watch out for two others who appear to be in equally good form-- Whomakestherules, winner of the grade 1, Major PK Mehra Memorial Super Mile Cup at Kolkata; and New England, facile winner of the R M & Rukmani Goculdas Million on this track two weeks ago. The joker in the pack could be B Fifty Two who must have raised his fitness level thanks to a forward run in last start. My vote goes to Whomakestherules.
First race at 5.30 pm.
