LAHORE -- A mediocre card of six events is all set for the Lahore Winter Meeting at the Racecourse here on Wednesday.

The meeting was, in fact, to be held on Sunday (Dec 29) but has been brought forward in view of prestigious Quaid-e-Azam Cup race at the Karachi Racecourse on that day.

The feature event, the Yasoob Plate, a Class VI Division III and IV to be contested over 1,300 metres, has 10 runners with most of them having won one or more races in enhance their claims in the forthcoming event.

The top contenders are a quartet comprising Tiger Jet, Sinner, Double Action and Pockets, who all look equally with good chance. Since they are to contest the 1,300-metre middle distance for the first time it will be difficult to predict the eventual winner.

The same is the case in the supporting event, the Yasoob Plate Class VII Division I and II combined handicap race to be gone over 1,200 metres, which has exactly a dozen runners with at least half the number of horses on chance.

The Lahore Race Club (LRC) has announced three races over the dust track while the other three will be gone over the grassy turf.

The numerical strength of the runners in five races is in double figure except the one race which has nine runners, barring last-minute withdrawals.

In races, the number of draw and the rider and trainers expertise in the art of racing counts much particularly where the field is large.

The first race will be held at 12:30pm.
