Defending champions Sher Punjab from Nailaga, Ba will face stiff competition from other top bets, Pepsi also of Ba, Dyna Kill of Nadi, Navosa's Digicel Lavo and Jeep Rocket are among the heavyweight horses vying for the $1000 prizemoney at stake for the 2000 metres race. Steema and Playboy from Nadroga are also in the top equation.

Labasa's Mission Babasiga is the lone ranger from the North that will add a different spice to the competition.

Tournament organiser Livai Tora said prizemoney and trophies would be awarded to winners.
