Macedonian for October Handicap
Despite the heavy impost of 61 kg, the Shyam Habbu-trained Macedonian towers over his rivals in the October Handicap, a class IV affair for three-year-old horses.
In the hands of B Prakash, Macedonian attracts as a good betting proposition of Saturday's nine-race card. Borak, trained by Malesh Narredu, can win the Ray Of Light Plate, and deserves to be supported as an each way bet, especially as he will most probably go out at lucrative odds.
