Toroloco for Scindia Trophy
Thirteen top class horses will line up to face the starter in the grade 3, Maharaja Sir Jiwajirao Scindia Trophy, the feature event of Sunday's bumper ten-race card which will also showcase Indo-German Christmas celebrations.
Three of them who are in top form —Toroloco, Onassis and Storm Tracker — are expected to be seriously concerned at the business end, with the first-named having a slight edge.
Archie, who seems to have struck very good from as evidenced by his last victory at Pune, attracts as a good bet of the afternoon; whereas War Horse, who might run friendless in the Bayer Trophy, appeals as a decent chance bet.
First race is at 12.30pm.
