Mumbai: With a blend of debutantes lining up for the Gool S Poonawalla Million (Gr3), the prestigious race hangs in balance as it is an open affair, the main event of the Mumbai meeting, to be held on Sunday.

Catalina is the lone contender with a winning bracket, which she did on her debut in a maidens’ set at Hyderabad. Considering the bunch she beat, her success there is not convincing enough to root for the filly, but yes, she surely merits strong consideration.

Among those that have run, Fast Rain and Multiencrypted have fared reasonably well having finished second in their respective races, the latter finding one better on both his starts. These two stablemates could well brace up for a showdown with the former a touch better off on his latest track work as he has looked the more pleasing of the two. Among the debutantes, Rafaello is the pick and he has been dishing out some noteworthy gallops in the mornings.

The line-up is an interesting one and although the numbers are just eight in the fray, the race is likely to provide a thrilling finish.
