Portia for Maharaja Of Morvi Trophy
The opening day's card (Sunday, Nov 18), which was called off on account of the death of Shiv Sena Supremo Balasaheb Thackeray, has been rescheduled for today.
The Maharaja Of Morvi Trophy is the prime event of the nine-race card, in which only three runners have accepted to run. Three-year-old filly Portia, trained by Pesi Shroff and to be ridden by S Zervan, is tipped to win the event from Maple Star & Blue Ace.
As the best betting proposition of the Tuesday afternoon I nominate Turf Lightning who should be able to post an easy victory in the Sir Charles Forbes Trophy, a six-furlong affair for class II horses.
First race at 1 pm.
