The Ramdin-trained TIGER MASTER looks to be back in form, following a 3rd place finish in the Willy Larche Plate last time out. Joe’s Legacy, Ek Tha Tiger and Black Gambit are the most-likely challengers.
4-Year-Old BELUGA had pretty-much put the race to bed before all of the runners had rounded the bend, in the Apex Corporate Services Trophy (September). Plain Of Wisdom and In The Trenches should get the best view of Merven’s inmate passing the winning-post.
Strum looks likely to start as favourite, but CASH LORD is much better than 5th place in the Maigrot Cup suggests and is likely to appreciate the shorter trip. Act Of Valor has a good strike-rate and commands respect.
POLAR PALACE can make it 3 wins in a row, after landing the spoils in both the Louis Philippe Boulle Cup and the Apex Fund Services 5th Anniversary Trophy. It’s a matter of debate whether 1400m or 1500m is the best trip for Gujadhur’s charge, but both Evergreen and Burg are likely to be left out in the cold on Saturday.
Chosen Dash’s best performances have all been over 1000m and the same can be said for Streetbouncer. Step To Fame is in the winning habit, but ALLENBY PARK looks the most-likely to stay the distance. The 5-year-old was finishing best of all, when runner-up in the L. Edgard Adolphe Obe Cup back in June and just about gets the nod.
Several look capable of going very close, in this 1500m encounter, but MEMPHIS MAFIA really caught the eye when winning the Gold Circle Trophy last month. Nordic Warrior, Recall To Life and Tandragee have strong claims though and this could well be the best race of the day.
KENTUCKY BLUEGRASS is the tentative pick. Merven’s runner looked beaten a long way out, in the Willy Larch Plate, but ran on strongly to win with something in hand. The 6-year-old also won over a mile in June and can get the better of both Emaar and Laughistheanswer.
Spin A Coin only has a single win in 14 starts and AVAIL is much-preferred. Merven’s 4-year-old was tenacious, when reeling-in Tornado Man in the Muzika Sports And Jazz Bar Trophy last month and looks a progressive sort.
