Song Saa should win
Though she finished a distant fourth on debut at Pune, Song Saa's finishing effort was eye-catching, and she is expected to make amends now in the lower division of the Free Radical Plate and attracts as a good bet of the Thursday card. Song Saa is trained by Pesi Shroff and will be ridden by S Zervan.
Another Shroff-Zervan combination, Dreams Of You, may fetch a more-than-deserving price because she is going over a ten-furlong trip. The reason is she appeared to be slowing down over a mile trip last time.
However, I feel she must have benefited by that educative run and can now humble Snowing, her main rival in the Desert Lightning Plate.
