Great Faith is a firm banker

To­mor­row’s Supreme Ven­tures-spon­sored 12-race pro­gramme at Cay­manas Park, fea­tur­ing the $3.6 mil­lion Pick-3 Chal­lenge Tro­phy over 1400 me­tres for na­tive bred two-year-olds, of­fers a Pick-9 car­ry­over of $2.4 mil­lion.

This will be con­ducted from race four to 12, while both Su­per 6s start anew with guar­an­teed min­i­mums of $750,000.

The first Su­per-6 will be con­ducted from race one to six, the late Su­per-6 from seven to 12.

We look at the first Su­per-6, which com­mences with a high-claim­ing event over a mile to be con­tested by nine starters, in­clud­ing top con­tenders ORIGINAL TRAIN, RAG­ING PROSPECT and the up-in-class hat-trick seeker LE­GENDARY PLEA­SURE, who is ex­tremely fit and is sure to get a good ride from cham­pion apprentice Lin­ton Stead­man.

ORIGINAL TRAIN and RAG­ING PROSPECT are the most ac­com­plished in the field, but the two ran poorly be­hind JAMAI RAJA in an overnight al­lowance race over 1700 me­tres last Satur­day and have been dropped in class as a re­sult.


RAG­ING PROSPECT, who was qui­etly fan­cied at 12-1, stum­bled badly at the start and did not re­cover, but in his race prior to that on Septem­ber 17, he beat all, bar­ring SUPERLUMINAL, over 2000 me­tres in overnight com­pany. The 7-y-o son of He’sthe­re­alth­ing – Rag­ing Fury looks tempt­ing at the weights with only 52.0kg and 2.0kg claim­ing apprentice Ja­vaneil Pat­ter­son rid­ing for trainer Ryan Darby, and is pre­ferred to LE­GENDARY PLEA­SURE and ORIGINAL TRAIN.

Next on the pro­gramme is the Pick 3 Easy To Play Tro­phy over 1500 me­tres for fouryear-olds and up (non-win­ners of two).

Among the eight starters are the re­cent fast-time win­ner PARTY CUP, who, by JAMAI RAJA (Be­beto Har­vey) scor­ing a run­away win in last Satur­day’s overnight al­lowance race for the Dale Mur­phy Tro­phy. The three-year-old colt is trained by Richard Azan. virtue of his 16-length vic­tory over 1400 me­tres on Novem­ber 5 in a time of 1:28.1, should also have the beat­ing of non-win­ners of two, with Pat­ter­son se­cur­ing the ride, VES­PERS (re­gain­ing form), sec­ond to BRIDLED PRINCESS on Novem­ber 12, looks the prin­ci­pal dan­ger.


GREAT FAITH, who went down fight­ing against MAR­KET FORCE on her re­cent de­but over 1100 me­tres, is con­fi­dently ex­pected to win the third race for two-yearolds, this over 1200 me­tres for the Pick 3 ‘Straight’ Tro­phy. The Gary Subratie-trained GREAT FAITH has most to fear from the An­thony Nunes-trained MIRABILIS, who fin­ished five lengths fifth to the win­ner in the same race.

TWO STEPS UP, who re­cently got through in the Ste­wards’ Room, ran well when beaten a head by FIFTYONESTORM
