Onassis for AC Ardeshir Trophy

Published: Dec 02, 2012, 08:58 IST | Prakash Gosavi |

Nine top class horses will line up for the grade 3, A C Ardeshir Trophy, the feature event of the eight-race card slated for Sunday at Mahalaxmi.

The three horses that will most likely be concerned at the finish are Smashing, Capriole and Onassis, of which, the last-named, trained by Pesi Shroff, is my choice.

Two other Pesi Shroff wards — Ambrosia and Mariinsky — stand out in their respective races, and therefore, appeal as good bets, though bookmakers may offer miserly prices on them.

First race at 1.30 pm.
Nutrition Trophy (For 4y, class V; 1000m) Riding Onthe Storm 1, Al Zamarud 2, Flash Forward 3.
Vinayak Memorial Trophy (For 5y&o, class IV; 1000m) Endless Horizon 1, Pound Foolish 2,
Foxtrot 3.
Powerhouse Eastern Germany Trophy (Class II; 1800m) Ambrosia 1, Okavango 2, Spirit Of Mercy 3.
Bayer Trophy (For 4y&o, class III; 1000m) Daffodils 1, Good Looking 2, Starlight Magic 3.
BASF Good Governance Cup (For 3y, maidens; 1400m) Act Of War 1, New World 2, Papakura 3.
AC Ardeshir Trophy Gr 3 (For 3y&o; 1400m) Onassis 1, Capriole 2, Smashing 3.
HDFC-ERGO Trophy (For 2y, maidens; 1200m) Mariinsky 1, Foinaven 2, Colourful Prince 3.
Indo-German Christmas Trophy (Class IV; 1400m) Windsor Queen 1, Home Advantage 2, Barringo 3.
