Sunday racing resumes at Caymanas Park today with a nine-race programme commencing at 12:50 p.m.

The feature event is the annual renewal of the Joseph Armond Memorial Trophy restricted allowance race over 1820 metres to be contested by eight native bred three-year-olds. They include top contenders BIG BLACK NATION, BLUE PEPSI LINKS, ACAPULCO, and the recent winner, PIANO MAN.

With three-time champion jockey Dane Nelson down to ride the Patrick Lynch-trained ACAPULCO, the three-year-old colt has most appeal on the strength of his close second to DELIGHTFUL BRENDA over 2000 metres recently.

Elsewhere on the programme, the 2014 Guineas and Lotto Classic winner, TALENTED TONY K, is a strong fancy to win the overnight allowance race over the straight ahead of old rival DREAMLINER and GARY GLITTER.

He showed his usual dash when finishing second in a hot sprint recently, and being the joint track record holder for the distance (56.1), should take a lot of catching with Nelson aboard.

Other firm fancies on the card are DIFERENTGENERATION, to repeat in the third race over the straight, FRANKENSTORM in the fourth, and Nelson's mount SHARP SKIRT in the sixth.
