DT Racing & Breeders LLP, Mukul Sonawala & AS Narielwala's has been predominantly good in long distance, but making his fourth attempt in over eight furlongs has also been good, this gives the reason for this gelding to an edge over the others for the AC Ardeshir Trophy, the first graded (III) race at the Mumbai meeting to be held at the Mahalaxmi race course here on Sunday.
