Zuccarelli, the reigning champion, seeks to secure his title as the best in the upcoming A C Ardeshir Trophy, a Grade 3 event at the Mahalaxmi racecourse during the special Mumbai meeting this Sunday.

Trained by the esteemed Pessi Shroff, this four-year-old gelding clinched victory in the same race last year and is determined to retain the crown.

Last year's runner-up, Northern Lights, fell short by over three lengths despite a commendable four-win streak should make this race more interesting.

Guided by jockey P Trevor, Zuccarelli left Northern Lights behind in the over seven-furlong event. The duo is set for a rematch in the fourth race of the day, facing six other contenders at the starting gates.

Watch out for a potential upset from Count of Savoy, a gelding hailing from Mallesh Nerredu's stable, and ridden by Yash Narredu.

The field of eight runners promises an exciting showdown on the racing track.
