Saba for Gaekwad Trophy
Seven-year-old mare Saba, trained by Rehanullah Khan and to be ridden by Neeraj Rawal, has an edge over her four rivals in the Maharaja Sir Pratapsingh Gaekwad Trophy, the feature event of today's ten-race card. She is tipped to win from White Knight (Prabhu Naidu up), and attracts as a good bet
For the best bet of the afternoon, I nominate Winds Of Fortune in the Rapidash Plate, the opening race of the card. The CD Katrak ward should be able to easily tackle her eight rivals in the hands of Suraj Narredu.
