Smashing, the Vijay Mallya-owned filly who is easily the most promising of her age, will begin her Mumbai campaign tomorrow.

The Pesi Shroff-trained three-year-old by Holy Roman Emperor out of Exquisite is expected to post an easy victory in her race--the Scorpio Plate for class III horses, and accordingly, shapes as the best bet of the opening day of the Mahalaxmi 2011-12 racing campaign.

The feature event, Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy (VI Bart.) Cup, seems to be at the mercy of Vinayak-schooled Mountain Treasure (Dashrath Singh up), while Audelade Inaugural Million, the day's only sponsored event for there-year-olds could turn out to be very tricky. My vote goes to Lake Superior (Martin Dwyer up) though my money will not ride on it.

First race at 2 pm.
Selections:

Gateway Of India Plate (Class IV; 1600)
Frost Fairy 1, Rose Heaven 2, Persian 3.

Free Radical Plate (Class II; 1200)
Dancing Glances 1, Oceanic Wisdom 2.

Sir Jamsetjee Jeejeebhoy (VI Bart.) Cup
Mountain Treasure 1, Adams Vision 2, Bat Yam 3.

Scorpio Plate (Class III; 1400m)
Smashing 1, Capriole 2, Esmeraldo 3.

Audelade Inaugural Million (For 3y; 1200m)
Lake Superior 1, Our Chieftain 2, Ranthambhore 3.

Season's Best Plate (Class V; 1400m)
Atlantic Star 1, Lady Genereuse 2, Free For All 3.

My Desire Plate (Class IV; 1200m)
Pride Of The Hills 1, Rule Forever 2, Generalissimo 3.
