The feature event of Thursday, the Jimmy Bharucha Trophy, has attracted three-year-old horses. Five of the nine have been winners of one race each, and only one is an unknown entity--Fire Nice, who will be making her debut.

Joaquin's impressive wire-to-wire victory on this track last month will most probably make him the bookmakers' favourite. However, Leopard Rock, who posted a sensational victory in the hands of S A Amit when least expected, is now getting top jockey in Suraj Narredu, and therefore, is the one who will not let Joaquin win without a fight. Soaring High and Skyfall care capable of adding pep to the finish.
