A nine-race Saturday card is slated at the Pune racetrack, the Eve Champion Trophy (Gr 3) being the feature event. All eyes–and all the money too–will most likely be on Parisian, who enjoys a 3 kg pull at the scales from the top-weighted Grand Accord in a field of six runners.
Parisian is trained by Pesi Shroff and will be ridden by P S Chouhan. She is expected to win the feature event from Apsara Star (C Umesh up).
First race at 1 pm.
