A number of attractive guaranteed payouts await punters on tomorrow's rich Diamond Mile day at Caymanas Park.

Most of the money will be paid out in the Sunrise and Twilight Super-6s. For the Sunrise Super-6, the guaranteed minimum has been increased to $1.5 million while that on offer for the Twilight Super-6 is $2 million. The usual guaranteed minimum payout for both is up from the usual $750,000.

Those who wish to buy the very popular triples will also be richly rewarded late in the day-. The last triple on races 12, 13, and 14 will have a guaranteed minimum payout of $500,000. Money on the Pick-4s has also been increased to make it a rewarding day for what is expected to be a bumper crowd at the track.

On a day when all the other races on the card will offer purses of $1 million and over, the second race (first in the Sunrise Super-6) over 1200 metres for maiden three-year-olds looks tailored for Nelson's mount, JASON'S GOLD, who lost out in a blanket finish to CODED CITIZEN over the straight recently. Others such as LEEKOUT, BOFFO, SON OF TAQUARUS and PERFECT ASSET should ensure keen competition in a field of 13.

NIGHT LIGHT, despite flopping behind PONTIUS PILATE in the Andrew H.B. Aguilar Memorial Cup two-year-old feature over a mile last Saturday, will much prefer the 1200 metres of the third race, and with Nelson securing the ride, should win at the expense of the well forward first-time runner DON CHASSIS and SHE'S LEGACY in a field of 11 juveniles.

Race number four over 1500 metres for the Power 106 Trophy has a difficult look about it with the likes of MY, COMPANION, GLYDER, URBAN PRINCIPAL, IAN LINKS, DUSSELDORF, VALLEY OF THE CATS, and MARKET SENSATION capable of winning. MY COMPANION (Walker up), who chased home DREAMING THE CODE over 1300 metres recently, will love the additional furlong and should stave off DUSSELDORF and MARKET SENSATION.

The last three races in the first Super-6 should be won by BRAVE PROSPECT (Linton Steadman), WARTIME (Bebeto Harvey), and LEGAL ARENA (Anthony Thomas).
