The Dallas Todywalla-trained champion mare Ruffina will be taking on four top class rivals in the F H Tapia Memorial Million, the feature event of Sunday's nine-race card. Ruffina has won all her recent starts except the one over today's trip (1400m) when she narrowly went down to Timeless at Pune, and this fact may fetch a fair price on her today especially as stalwarts like Your Royal Majesty and New England are also in the fray.

On the current form and fitness, I expect Ruffina to humble this set and win the feature event. Ruffina will be ridden by David Allan.
