Horse Racing: Trouvaille can make amends
The one horse all will have to watch is the SK Sunderji-trained Trouvaille as he let down a large following in the last start and failed to exhibit his true class.
Pune: A small but classy field of six juveniles will contest the grade 3, S A Poonawalla Million, the feature event of Sunday's eight-race card. Four of the six are last outing winners, two of them--Victorious Sermon & Prince Valiant--bidding for hat-trick, while Golden Guest will be fishing for his fourth straight victory.
However, the one horse they all will have to watch is the SK Sunderji-trained Trouvaille. He let down a large following in last start and failed to exhibit his true class. With the benefit of that airing, I expect Trouvaille to make amends over the mile trip, and win the feature race from Victorious Sermon who now returns to his home circuit after excellent showing at Bangalore.
First race at 1.30 pm.
