Native Knight for Suresh Mahindra Trophy
The Suresh Mahindra Trophy appears to be at the mercy of seven-year-old Native Knight who recently won the President Of India Gold Cup (Gr 1) at Hyderabad.
In the name of opposition, he faces only three rivals for what has traditionally been the longest race in the country, run over the distance of two miles (3,200m). Okavango and Rodeo are expected to fight for the solitary minor place.
