Mumbai: Excellent, from the stables of trainer Dallas Todywalla, enjoyed success at Pune and should come good in the Aziz Ahmedbhoy Trophy, the feature event, on the 26th day of the Mumbai meeting to be held at the Mahalaxmi racecourse on Thursday. A small field will take to the starting gates, and three of the six runners namely Excellent, Spitfire and Texas Gold shape should catch the judges eye.

Although, Texas Gold had beaten Excellent by a length over similar distance five weeks ago, the narrow margin of victory will give Excellent enough confidence of reversing it in his favour this time. Spitfire comes into the race with a solid victory just two weeks back. He had won impressively and displayed that he is in fine fettle. On his day, he can be a handful and he will be a lot more confident after the facile win, his first over the mile. First race: 5.00pm
