Only five horses have accepted to contest for the mile trip of the Maharaja Sir Harisinghji Trophy (Grade 3), the feature event of Sunday's eight race card. Interestingly, all five of them have last raced on the same day (March 27) � three of them in the Karl Umrigar Turf Championship and two in the Bangalore Turf Club Trophy. Onassis, who won the Umrigar Turf Championship beating Mr Greedy and Sprint Star, is expected to repeat the feat.

For the best of the afternoon, I nominate the Cooji Katrak �trained Beyond Stars who should be able to humble Venus Rosewater with a measure of comfort. Wild Torronaado, trained by D Todywalla and to be ridden by Dashrath Singh, may be considered a good bet over her pet trip of five furlongs.

Selections:

S A Wahid Plate (Class V; 1800m)
Cougar 1, Taanush 2, Magical Mantra 3.
Regal Equity Plate (For 5y&o, class III; 1000m)
