Start with Prolific Princess

PROLIFIC PRINCESS winning over 1200 metres on April 30.

Only eight races are slated to be run at Caymanas Park tomorrow, which means that the Pick-9 will take a vacation until the next race meet. However, both Super-6s are being offered, the first embracing races one to six and the second from race three to eight.

We look at the first Super-6, which commences with a restricted allowance four over 1200 metres to be contested by eight starters. Among them are the consistent PROLIFIC PRINCESS, to be ridden by former champion Omar Walker for in-form trainer Neive Graham and popular owner O'Shaun Connection.

PROLIFIC PRINCESS won easily over this trip on April 30 and has finished second in four subsequent races. Last Saturday she finished third to MR AMBASSADOR in a fast-run 1500-metre race, and now back over a suitable trip, should win from MARKOFAPRINCE and PIZARRO.

Next on the programme is the CTL Stable Riders' Race over 800 metres straight for conditional $180,000 claimers, and with several of the eight starters long past their best, it presents a challenge to confidently predict the winner.

Up to a year ago, LIGHT BRIGADE would be a shoo in for top honours, but he, along with SIR D have been proving difficult to train. As such, others such as FLAGRANS, NEVER GIVE UP, and SOJOURNER TRUTH should enter the reckoning in a race where multiple choices are recommended. LIGHT BRIGADE is given the edge with only 52.0kg.

 

HARD TO OPPOSE

 

ALL CORRECT, who stayed on well for third to fast-time winner HOLOGRAM SHADOW over 1300 metres last Saturday in overnight company, looks hard to oppose over the longer distance of 1820 metres in the third race to be contested by eight starters.

ALL CORRECT, to be ridden by Walker for 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, notched his last win over this trip on New Year's Day when lifting the CTL Fan Appreciation Day Trophy and should rebound at the expense of the speedy hat-trick seeker MOM'S STUDENT and RAGING PROSPECT.

OMEGA, who lost few marks in defeat on his recent outing, should prove too strong for MISTY and DANISH BROWN in the fourth race over 1100 metres and should provide in-form claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins with yet another winner. DON AMIGO, DANCEHALL SWEET, and YOLOVE are recommended as a package deal in the fifth for bottom-of-the-barrel maiden three-year-olds, with DON AMIGO (O'Brien White up) given the edge), while UNCLE BUNNY, with Shane Ellis aboard, cannot be opposed in the sixth, division two of the three-year-old maiden condition race.
