A mile race.the main contenders are Redshift, Rip Van Winkle, Native Talent, Saddle Queen, and The Senator. The Senator ran well last time, the step up of distance will suit it fine.

THE NARASIMHARAJA CUP : Class I race. The main contenders are Ohiyesa, Flaming Lamborgini, Tanzanite, Spark Of Bronte and Clear Mandate.

Flaming Lamborgini has been a good performer, can win but for that Suraj has to be at his best. Clear Mandate's last run was impressive, but was at bottom weight, today it wont be easy to even place.
