The four-year-old gelding Forest Flair, who won his last two starts comfortably, is poised for a hat-trick in the Vandrevala Foundation Sprinters' Cup (1,200m) while Maseeha, who has won over 2,800m should reproduce his form to claim the Vandrevala Foundation Stayers' Cup (3,000m), the stellar attractions of the pre-Invitation Cup day races to be held here on Saturday (March 6).

There will be no false rails.
