4.000.000 EUR im Quinté+-Jackpot in Enghien

Mit 4.000.000 EUR ist der Jackpot in der Quinté+-Wette am heutigen Samstag gefüllt. Ausgespielt wird Frankreichs Superwette im Prix de la Manche (85.000 EUR - 2.850 m), der als 3. Rennen auf der Karte steht. In einem ausgeglichenen Feld kann man gespannt sein, wer sich den Siegerscheck sichern wird.

(1) Romanesque (C. Martens) hat sich seit ihrem Wechsel in die Obhut der Brüder Martens bestens entwickelt und bringt so gut wie nur Spitzenleistungen. Die Stute trifft es aus dem ersten Band günstig an und kann diese Aufgabe für sich entscheiden.

(8) Perkins Grif (A. Barrier) ist ihr Bandgefährte und wird dank der guten Ausgangsposition ebenfalls in den Endkampf schaffen.

Ein Pferd mit ausreichender Klasse um auch gegen diese starken Gegner bestehen zu können ist (5) Va Très Bien (P. Vercruysse), dessen weniger starkes Resultat beim letzten Mal auch einem wenig glücklichen Rennverlauf geschuldet war. Hier sollte wieder mehr mögich ein.

(9) Uranie Lorraine (F. Nivard) geht ohne Eisen ins Rennen, was den Schluss zulässt, dass die Stute in guter Form agiert und hier für die Entscheidung so leicht wie möglich sein sollte.

(11) Tischendorff Padd (M. Abrivard) passt so eben noch in das erste Band, sollte die sich ihm bietende Gelegenheit nützen und ist deshalb enefalls ein Endkampfkandidat.

Auf den Wettschein für die Dreierwetten müssen (3) Aliénor de Goudrel (F. Anne) und (6) Totem d'Azur (S. Delasalle), die den Favoriten nach Klasse in wahrscheinlich nichts nachstehen. 

Ein interessanter Außenseiter ist (2) Uvevering du Gîte (P.Y. Verva) dessen Form besser ist als es die reine Papierform sagt.

Der wettstar-Tipp:

(1) Romanesque - (8) Perkins Grif - Va Très Bien (5) - Uranie Lorraine (9) - Tischendorff Pad (11)

Halmstad - 3.000.000 Euro Jackpot

Der Samstag wird im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein heißer Samstag. Nicht nur tropische Temperaturen sondern auch ein 3.000.000 Euro Jackpot im Rahmen des Samstagslunchmeeting sorgt vielleicht für zusätzliche Wärme – zumindest in unserer Geldbörse. Um 12:45h beginnt das Lunchmeeting, welches heute in Halmstad stattfindet. Mit dem 5. Rennen um 14:30h beginnt dann die V75. Die Sieger bis einschließlich des 11. Rennen sind zu tippen – bereits mit 5 richtig getippten Siegern beginnt das Geldverdienen.

 

 

Das erste Rennen über 2640 Meter aus den Bändern gestartet sollte auf einen Zweikampf zwischen Tokio Hotel Hall mit der Nummer 7 und Carabinieri mit der Nummer 10 hinauslaufen. Tokio Hotel Hall hat zwar längere Zeit nicht mehr gewonnen, findet hier aber eine exakt passende Ausschreibung vor. Sollte er direkt beim Start an die Spitze laufen dürfte er nur schwer zu schlagen sein. Carabinieri benötigt ebenfalls einen guten Rennverlauf, um dann mit seinem Speed von hinten das Feld aufzurollen. Es sollte ein sehr interessantes Rennen werden. Radieux konnte dies Jahr noch nicht wirklich überzeugen, ist ein besserer Langstreckler als Sprinter. Deshalb sollte die Distanz ihm entgegenkommen und ein Platzgeld erreichbar sein. Pantarei Ans mit der Nummer 1 hat bereits in diesem Jahr starke Leistungen gezeigt, vor allem der Sieg in dem letzten Rennen in niedrigerer Klasse aber trotz Zulage mit 1,5 Längen war überzeugend. Berücksichtigt werden sollten auch die Nummer 5, Al´s Winnermede und 4, Seyfenstein mit Conny Lugauer, die durchaus mit vorderer Platzierung wenn nicht sogar mehr überraschen können.

 

Tipps:  7 -  10 -  3  -  1 (5-4)

 

 

Das zweite Rennen der V75 wird nicht so lange benötigen  bevor der Sieger fest steht. Über 1609 Meter mit Autostart führend sollten 11 Pferde am Ablauf das Rennen bestreiten. Björn Goop mit der Nummer 10, Say that Again ist hier unser Mumm. Vielleicht gelingt es wieder – der Sieg. In 5 Rennen dieses Jahr geprüft, konnte er vier davon für sich entscheiden und verlor das fünfte knapp im Endkampf. 6, Xlnt Chili Trippel war zweimal draussen dieses Jahr, gewann beide Rennen sicher. Sollte der Nummer 10 das Leben schwer machen können. Um Platzgelder kämpfen werden unserer Einschätzung nach die Nummer 2, Anna und 5, M.T. Jordan. Beide Pferde zeigten dieses Jahr Licht und Schatten, können sich aber in dieser Klasse behaupten.

 

 

Tipps:   10  -  6  -  2  -  5

 

 

 

10 vierjährige Stuten werden um die über 500.000 Kronen Siegprämie im dritten Rennen der V 75 kämpfen. Alle Starter haben dieses Jahr schon überzeugen können, sonst wären sie in diesem Finallauf der Sto Sprintern über 1609 Meter hinterm Auto nicht dabei. Wir gehen mit der Nummer 2, Heavens Door, die das letzte Rennen sicher gewann und optimal vorbereitet erscheint. Die Nummer 3 Empress Brodda wird versuchen schnell zu eröffnen und sich an die Spitze zu setzen. Deepdish mit der Nummer 1 wird es mit dem gleichen Konzept wie Empress Brodda versuchen. Im letzten Rennen knapp vor Candy Store, die hier ebenfalls mit der Startnummer 6 am Ablauf ist, gewonnen. Bei gutem Verlauf dürfte es auf ein packendes Finish hinauslaufen. Björn Goop startet mit der Nummer 9, Spring Kronos, die in diesem Jahr ein Vorbereitungsrennen bestritt und sicher gewann. Damit wurde die Vorjahresform untermauert. Ebenfalls zumindest auf den Plätzen denkbar.

 

 

Tipps:  2  -  3  -  1  -  6  -  9

 

 

2140 Meter aus den Bändern sind im vierten Rennen die Distanz für 3 und ältere Pferde im vierten Rennen der V75. Staro Italy, 6, kommt hier mit guten Formen aus 2014 und dieser Saison an den Start. Den letzten Start in Bjerke konnte er siegreich gestalten. Spirit Real mit der Startnummer 1 präsentierte sich dreimal bei 5 Starts auf dem zweiten Platz. Jeweils knapp geschlagen sollte er zum Sieg anstehen. Könnte hier durchaus der Fall sein. Sobel Jocke mit der 10 von Peter Untersteiner dieses Mal gefahren, präsentierte sich in unterschiedlicher  Verfassung in diesem Jahr. Nicht so einfach mit diesem Startplatz aber durchaus bei passendem Rennverlauf denkbar. 11, Buck Mearas bevorzugt das Rennen von vorne zu Laufen, hat es mit der Startnummer 11 somit nicht ganz einfach.

 

 

Tipps:  6  -  1  -  10  -   11

 

 

 

Lange 2640 Meter liegen aus den Bändern vor den 15 Startern des fünften Rennen der V75. Part Nan Angelen, 9 steht nach einem zweiten Platz im letzten Rennen nur ganz knapp geschlagen zum Sieg. Unser Bankpferd in diesem Rennen. Das erste Rennen in dieser Saison gewann er sicher über die ganz lange Distanz. Mit der Nummer 12, Legend Brodde wird der Bezwinger von Part Nan Angelen des letzten Rennens der Hautherausforderer. Im letzten Rennen hatte er einen optimalen Rennverlauf. Ohne Handicap Zulage von 20 Metern trauen wir Bern Derlin Am, 4, eine Platzierung zu. Der Wallach präsentierte sich bei seinen vielen Start dieses Jahr stets gesteigert und sollte auch in dieser Klasse auf Anhieb zu Hause sein. Mit der Nummer 7 probiert die dänische Stute Tootsie sich erstmalig diese Saison auf der langen Distanz. Sehr gut präpariert bei ihren diesjährigen Starts sollte ein Platzierung auch auf dieser Strecke auf jeden Fall möglich sein.

 

Tipps:  9  -  12  -  4  -  7

 

 

Das vorletzte Rennen der V75 über 1609 Meter präsentiert die besser Verdienenden. Mit der Startnummer 7 sehen wir mit Quick Fix einen sechsjährigen Wallach am Ablauf, der bereits in dieser Saison mit über 1 Million Kronen sein Gewinnsummenkonto anreichern konnte. Das mit Abstand höchste Gewinnsummenergebnis der Starter in dieser Saison. Sollte auch wir bei 5 anderen Rennen in diesem Jahr um den Sieg fighten. Sollte zu einem starken Finish zwischen ihm und Remember my Name mit der Nummer 1 kommen. Remember my Name zeigte diese Jahr nur gute Formen und sollte bestens vorbereitet sein. Er ist ein schneller Starter und geht dann gerne von vorn. Das sollte von Anfang an sehr interessant werden zwischen diesen beiden Pferden. Call me Hannover, 4, ist sicherlich ein Pferd für ein Platzgeld. Super Otto, 5, ist Vielstarter. Nicht unbedingt ein Siegertyp, obwohl er das eine oder andere Rennen siegreich beendete, arbeitet aber beständig an seinem Gewinnsummenkonto. Ebenfalls bei den Plätzen nicht zu vernachlässigen.

 

Tipps:  7  -  1  -  5  -  4

 

 

Bis hierhin alles richtig? Dann auf zum letzten Rennen der V75. 2140 Meter stehen an, hinterm Auto gestartet. 12 dreijährige und ältere Pferde kommen an den Ablauf und kämpfen um die Gelder. Siegreich beim letzten Start in einem Gruppe I als 120:10 Chance in einem stärkeren Feld sollte 8 El Mago Pelini das zu schlagende Pferd sein. Auch die Nummer 11, Indigious, verfügt über Erfahrung als Sieger von Gruppe Rennen und sollte Ebenfalls ein Anwärter auf den Sieg und der Hauptherausforderer. Im letzten Rennen allerdings abgeschlagen hinter El Mago Pelini. 6, Perfect Enough mit Björn Goop ein talentiertes Pferd, allerdings bei seinem jetzigen Trainer noch an der Form arbeitend fraglich. Gut für ein Platzgeld, ebenso wie die Nummer 7, Nothing But Class.

 

 

Tipps:     8  -  11  -  6   -  7

24 Stunden vor dem Derby: Top-Ladies in Hamburg

Die Spannung in Hamburg steigt so langsam, denn das IDEE 146. Deutsche Derby rückt immer näher. Am Samstag gibt es gewissermaßen das „Warm-up“ mit einer Top-Veranstaltung und elf Prüfungen bereits ab 12 Uhr. Denn die ersten vier Rennen werden über die PMU nach Frankreich übertragen.

Sportlich stehen die Stuten im Focus, denn sie sind in beiden Hauptrennen gefordert. Im Almased-Cup (Hamburger Stuten-Preis, Gruppe III, 55.000 Euro, 2.200 m, 10. Rennen um 16:55 Uhr) dürfen ausschließlich dreijährige Ladies antreten – das Rennen dient als Aufgalopp für das Stuten-Derby, den Henkel – Preis der Diana am 2. August.

Zehn Stuten geben sich hier die Ehre. Hochinteressant scheint die von Andreas Wöhler trainierte Full Of Beauty (Eduardo Pedroza), die dem in Dubai beheimateten Großbesitzer Jaber Abdullah gehört. Sie flog in den Oaks d‘ Italia regelrecht heran und wurde ausgezeichnete Zweite hinter Lovelyn, die am Sonntag den Hansa-Preis in Hamburg gewann.

Amona (Alexander Pietsch) aus dem Stall von Andreas Löwe verkaufte sich als Dritte im Hoppegartener Diana-Trial glänzend und sollte hier eine absolute Siegkandidatin sein. Aber auch Anna Katharina (Andreas Helfenbein) aus dem Quartier von Champion Markus Klug hat erste Chancen – sie fand in Iffezheim nur einen Derby-Starter (Nordic Flight) zu stark und kämpfte bis zum Schluss.

Auch die Höny-Hoferin Salve Estelle (Stephen Hellyn) könnte diesen Sprung bewältigen. Und Gestüt Ebbeslohs Winnemark (Andrasch Starke) lief wie Turfdonna (Jozef Bojko) schon in Top-Gesellschaft nach vorne. Die Engländerin Anarchiste (Adrie de Vries), im Besitz von Tetra Pak-Erbin Kirsten Rausing, war als Sechste in einer Listenprüfung in Newbury nicht weit geschlagen. Jede Menge Optionen also in einem tollen Rennen!

Die vierjährigen und älteren Pferdedamen steuern den Esso-Cup (Listenrennen, 25.000 Euro, 2.200 m, 7. Rennen um 15:15 Uhr) an. Im achtköpfigen Feld gefällt vor allem die von Altmeister Hans-Jürgen Gröschel so mächtig gesteigerte Techno Queen (N. Richter). Mit gewaltigem Endspurt ließ sie in Baden-Baden bereits etliche der heutigen Konkurrentinnen hinter sich. Gefährlich werden könnten ihr die in Dresden wenig glücklich agierende Röttgenerin Elora Princess (A. Helfenbein), die Ittlingerin Global Wand (D. Porcu), die in Hannover nur an einem Überpferd scheiterte, sowie die mehr als solide Early Morning (F. Minarik).

Im Hanshin-Cup (Ausgleich I, 2.200 m, 8. Rennen um 15:45 Uhr) geben sich die Top-Handicapper die Ehre. Alberto Hawaii (F. Da Silva) triumphierte zuletzt als Riesenaußenseiter im Dresdener Sachsenpreis. Hier scheinen Moscatello (J. Bojko) und Liebesbrief (A. Starke) weiter steigerungsfähige Kandidaten zu sein.

Neben einer Zweijährigen-Prüfung und einem Amazonenreiten lockt natürlich auch wieder die Viererwette, die im 6. Rennen um 14:40 Uhr (Ausgleich IV, 2.800 m) sowie im 9. Rennen um 16:20 Uhr (Ausgleich III, 1.400 m) mit Garantie-Auszahlungen von jeweils 10.000 Euro ausgespielt wird.

Zwei deutsche Außenseiter im Gruppe-III-Höhepunkt

Nachdem die französischen Galopprennen in den letzten Tagen vorrangig in Deauville stattgefunden haben, geht es nun wieder zurück in die Metropole. Das Wochenende auf den Pariser Bahnen wird um 17.15 Uhr  in Longchamp eröffnet - mit acht Prüfungen und darunter als Höhepunkt dem Prix de la Porte Maillot (80.000 Euro, Gruppe III, 1.400 Meter).

Auch deutsche Interessen werden im sportlichen Highlight des Tages gewahrt werden, und dies sogar  zweifach. Sowohl der Wallach Artplace (Theo Bachelot) als auch die Stute Bondi (Antoine Courtier) gehen dabei jedoch lediglich als Außenseiter in dieses  – 4. Rennen, 18.45 Uhr. Der erstgenannte Fünfjährige ist im Besitz des Scuderia Raber und wird von Sascha Smrczek trainiert, während die ein Jahr jüngere It’s-Gino-Tochter für Muhedin Marukik startet und von Jutta Mayer betreut wird.

Nach Form und Rechnung deutet hier alles auf ein Finale hin, welches ausschließlich von den drei Dreijährigen im Feld bestimmt werden wird. Neben dem voraussichtlichen Favoriten De Treville (Maxime Guyon) wären diese außerdem Ride Like The Wind (Thierry Jarnet) und  Baghadur (Mickael Barzalona).

Zuvor ist als erster deutscher Gast bereits Waltraud Spanners  dreijährige La Bolera (Cristian Demuro) aus Trainer Michael Figges Quartier im Prix de la Bibliotheque Nationale – 3. Rennen, 18.15 Uhr – unterwegs. Wobei auch die Münchener Stute in Prinzip nur Außenseiterchancen anmelden kann.

Bessere Aussichten dürfte da schon Stall Australias Key to Passion (Mickael Barzalona) im Prix de Bonne Nouvelle – 5. Rennen, 19.15 Uhr –  besitzen. In der Verkaufsprüfung ist der Schützling von Sascha Smrczek nach Klasse schließlich die Nummer eins im Feld und rangiert gleichzeitig über seinem Trainingsgefährten Rapideur (Eddy Hardouin), der Thomas Gehrig gehört und der sich ebenfalls versucht. Bei seinen jüngsten Starts hatte er sich aber relativ schwergetan. Im Feld der 13 Kandidaten findet sich übrigens auch der Auenqueller  Daring Storm (Theo Bachelot).

Ein zweiter Australia-Starter mit auch keineswegs so schlechten Perspektiven dürfte etwas später im Prix de l’Ecole Militaire – 7. Rennen, 20.15 Uhr – zudem der dreijährige Alasdair (Mickael Barzalona) sein, der genauso von Sascha Smrczek vorbereitet wird. Jüngst hinterließ er als Zweiter in Amiens schon alles andere als einen schlechten Eindruck. Aber auch Gestüt Hachtsee‘s gleichaltrige Solange (Cristian Demuro) wusste Mitte Mai als Zweite auf ihrer Riemer Heimatbahn durchaus zu gefallen.  Die Kamsin-Tochter aus Michael Figges Quartier betritt in punkto  Distanz hier indes ein Neuland, während Alasdair bereits gezeigt hat, dass er über hinreichend Stamina verfügt, um selbst die heute geforderten 3.000 Meter bewältigen zu können.

Stephan Hoffmeister in Frankreich beheimatete Magic Coco (Mickael Barzalona) wäre im Prix des Feuillantines – 8. Rennen, 20.45 Uhr – dann eine letzte deutsche Interessenvertreterin. Die Dreijährige aus Trainer Tony Castanheiras Stall zählt beim Finale mit zu den in dieser Prüfung zahlreich anzutreffenden Formpferden. Vor kurzem in Chantilly scheiterte die Youmzain-Tochter nebenbei  nur an der gut verbesserten Morigny.

Tipps für die Rennen:

1.Rennen: (6) Mindtwist – (5) Tzar de Noel – (9) L’As du Ninian – (7) Speedy Crown

2. Rennen: (1) It’s Not It - (2) Lilienthal - (7) Fantastic Love – (8) Konrads

Deutsche Stute Olorda in den Belmont Oaks

Eine Million Dollar stehen über den Belmont Oaks am Samstag um 17:46 Uhr Ortszeit (23.46 Uhr deutscher Zeit) in Belmont Park/New York. Und Deutschland ist in diesem Grade I-Event über 2.000 Meter der Grasbahn mit von der Partie: Der Münchener Trainer Michael Figge bietet auf Wunsch von US-Besitzer Martin S. Schwartz die hochklassige dreijährige Stute Olorda hier auf.

Unter dem amerikanischen Spitzenjockey John Velazquez geht die Siegerin des Prix Vanteaux (Gruppe I) in Paris-Longchamp und anschließend auf derselben Bahn sehr gute Dritte des Prix Saint-Alary (Gr. I) in diese Prüfung. 13 Konkurrentinnen stellen sich ihr in den Weg, auch der in Frankreich tätige Top-Jockey Christophe Soumillon ist vertreten – er steuert für Todd Pletcher die Stute Itsonlyactingdad, die Vierte in den Wonder Again Stakes.

Nach dem Rennen kommt Olorda wieder nach München zurück, um auf das eigentliche Hauptziel, den Preis der Diana in Düsseldorf, vorbereitet zu werden.

Sportliches Highlight der heutigen Rennen in Enghien (Beginn: 14:00 Uhr) ist der Prix de Berlin (85.000 EUR – 2.150 m) ein Trabfahren für dreijährige Europäer die mindestens 10.000 EUR Gewinnsumme vorweisen können.

Der Critérium des Jeunes-Sieger (1) Coquin Bébé wird heute Frank Nivard anvertraut und sollte fehlerfrei zurück in die Erfolgsspur kehren können. Mit einer frischen Siegform empfohlen ist (2) Cosmic Girl (P. Vercruysse), die in diesem Feld ebenso für die Entscheidung in Frage kommt, wie (6) Charly du Noyer (Y. Lebourgeois). Dieser hat sich in den letzten Wochen kontinuierlich gesteigert und konnte zuletzt bei seinem Ehrenplatz schon am Sieg schnuppern. Pferde für die Kombiwetten sind außerdem (7) Caid Griff (E.

Eine besonders prestigeträchtige Prüfung steht am Samstag in Sandown ins Haus – mit den Eclipse Stakes (Gruppe I, 2.000 m). Es ist traditionell das erste Aufeinandertreffen der Top-Dreijährigen mit den älteren Stars. Der imponierende Englische Derbysieger Golden Horn (L. Dettori) gilt als heißer Favorit im kleinen Fünferfeld. Seit Sea The Stars hat hier 2009 kein Derbysieger mehr gewonnen. Aber dem noch ungeschlagenen Cape Cross-Sohn ist das Ende dieser Durststrecke zuzutrauen.

Trainer John Gosden ist auch mit Western Hymn (J. Doyle) vertreten, der Dritte der Prince of Wales’s Stakes war schon dreimal auf dieser Bahn und Distanz erfolgreich. Er trifft wieder auf The Grey Gatsby (J. Spencer), der damals als knapp geschlagener Zweiter ein sehr unglückliches Rennen hatte. Er ist sicher der Hauptgegner für Golden Horn. Andrew Baldings Tullius (O. Murphy) und der von Aidan O‘ Brien vorbereitete Cougar Mountain (R. Moore; Dritter zu Solow in den Queen Anne Stakes) komplettieren das Aufgebot.

Auch die weitere Sandown-Karte ist exzellent – mit dem Charge (Gruppe III), dem Challenge Heritage Handicap, dem Distaff (Listenrennen) und den Marathon Esher Stakes (Listenrennen).

Das Highlight der heutigen Abendkarte in Vichy ist der Grand Prix du Conseil Municipal (120.000 EUR -  3.525. m), ein Handicap aus zwei Bändern für ältere Pferde ohne Gewinnsummenbeschränkung. Nach den guten Leistungen der Vorwochen, enttäusche (6) United Back aus dem Stall von Jean-Michel Bazire beim letzten Start in Vincennes ein wenig. Nach einem Rennverlauf am Ende des Feldes endete er lediglich auf Rang sechs. Wer allerdings die letzten 400 m des Hengstes gesehen hat, dem ist klar weshalb er heute als Favorit an den Start geht. Mit einem starken letzten Teilstück ließ er noch große Teile des Feldes hinter sich und zeigte, dass er in Bestform agiert. (10) Ricimer (H. Sionneau) geht mit Zulage an den Start und könnte sich als die stärkster Gegner für den Bazire-Crack erweisen. Der  holte sich zuletzt einen guten Ehrenplatz, war davor in einer anspruchsvollen Aufgabe siegreich und ist auch heute für den Endkampf vorzumerken. (2) Ugo du Loisir (J.P. Ducher), (4) Tabriz du Gite (D. Thomain) und (7) Triskell Pacha (D. Cherbonnel) sind Kandidaten des ersten Bandes die für „Stockerlplätze“ in Frage kommen und den Einlauf komplettieren können.

RACE 7: VODACOM DURBAN JULY (Grade 1) - To be run at Greyville Racecourse

This year's Vodacom Durban July looks to be another to live up to its history, drama and jolly good racing.

Trainer Sean Tarry sends out five of the eighteen runners. Of the five, LEGAL EAGLE looks to be the one the other seventeen horses have to beat. The three year old son of GREYS INN, himself a July winner, has had two fantastic Grade 1 wins coming into this race. She won the SA Derby over 2450m at Turffontein at the end of April when racing away from the field by three lengths. He followed that up by winning the Jubilee Handicap, also at Turffontein, by four and a half lengths. He produced a strong finish from about 300m out to win that one comfortable. He was not received any penalty for that latest win and should be carrying 57kg and not the 54kg he will have on his back this afternoon. He is the best weighted horse in the field. He has had only a short career thus far but has shown enough class to suggest that he should be the one to beat. From his six runs he has won four of them. His only blemish was on debut in October last year when he failed to show. He was not backed on debut and would have clearly needed the run. Jockey Anton Marcus, who won on him in his last two starts, has the ride once again. The only question mark against his name could be the fact that he has yet to see the Greyville circuit. 

For those who will be looking for a horse to make the quartets pay, then ICE MACHINE could be the one. He did win the Drill Hall Stakes over 1400m by three lengths last time when sent out as favourite. He was slow off that day but did run on well. In the 2014 running of the J & B Met he did finish three lengths behind HILL FIFTY FOUR. Whilst there are far better horses in this field with more of a winning chance, he could be the one to sneak a place. He has won up to 1800m before so the distance could be a worry.

Trainer Stan Elley sends out a horse for the last time in this race. What better way to end an illustrious career than a win with PUNTA ARENAS who will be running in this race for the third occasions. He did finish less than four lengths back in sixth last year. He has been running on well in recent starts and he won the Cup Trial at this track a few weeks ago. He comes into this race with a chance of earning something. This will be his third run after a creditable fifth behind FUTURA in the J & B Met earlier in the year.

There will be an abundance of support for WYLIE HALL, who crossed the line first last year and lost it, some thought, in controversial manner in the board room. He won his last two with Bernard Fayd'Herbe in the saddle. Once again he will partner WYLIE HALL. He beat MAJMU by over a lengths in the Grade 1 President's Champions Challenge at Turffontein at the end of April. He has had the ideal preparation and this five year old Australian bred should go close again this year. If the going happens to be soft, then this would enhance his chances even more.

TELLINA finished a good fourth behind FUTURA in the J & B at the beginning of the year. He will be running on and he finished third in a pinnacle stakes behind HALVE THE DEFICIT last time at Turffontein. He should be added to the quartets and trifectas.

Trainer Mike Bass knows how to win this race. He saddles HELDERBERG BLUE who looks to be improving at the write time. Do not write his chances off. He is often sent to the front to set the pace. He employed these tactics in the J & B Met and stayed on for third.

Another trainer familiar with the number one box in the July, as well as in the other centres world wide, is Mike De Kock. MAJMU is a superb three year old filly with an impressive record of six wins from eight starts. She finished just over a lengths behind WYLIE HALL last time but is ½kg worse off at the weights for that loss. One does feel though that she is still improving and one has to respect her, even in this tough environment.

One cannot discount the brilliant FUTURA, who has amassed almost R3½ million. Last year he finished less than a length behind LEGISLATE in this race and he was running on extremely well. Last time he flew late for fourth in the Gold Challenge at this track over 1600m. We must also not forget his brilliant win in the J & B Met earlier in the year. Carrying 60kg will not be unfamiliar to him. He will have his supporters, and rightly so, a win will not be out of  possibility.

FRENCH NAVY won the Daily News at this track over 2000m last time. Last year LEGISLATE won the Daily News and then the July in consecutive races. There will be a nice price about him.

PINE PRINCESS has done very little wrong and could place at best.

GREYVILLE - 4 JULY 2015

RACE 1:

FULCRUM ran an excellent comeback run when returning from an eighteen month break. Will strip fitter this afternoon and should go close. FIREWOOD has yet to finish out of the money in five runs with two wins. Will be running on. GUMBI has excellent form but takes on stronger. Has won two from four with to thirds. VALERIN showed good improvement at Scottsville last time. Has a money chance. MASTER ARCHER drops in class but needs a better finish.

1st - FULCRUM (9); 2nd - FIREWOOD (6); 3rd - GUMBI (11); 4th - VALERIN (5); 5th - MASTER ARCHER (4)

RACE 2:

RESOLUTION may be coming back to best. She loves this track and has a good shout in this field. LERTASHA ran on strongly to win on the line against stronger last time. First time in KZN but is well weighted and has Richard Fourie aboard. GREEN CREST showed huge improvement last time. Did get going late at a starting price of 75/1. Piere Strydom has the ride. PRINCESS TANTAN is a reserve runner. Place chance if getting into the race. CATHY SPECIFIC takes on stronger but did win well last time.

1st - RESOLUTION (2); 2nd - LERTASHA (11); 3rd - GREEN CREST (6); 4th - PRINCESS TANTAN (13); 5th - CATHY SPECIFIC (4)

RACE 3: THE tabGOLD 2200 (Grade 3) - ST TROPEZ could go top of the mountain

The first feature on today's card could be trickier than first meets the eye. ST TROPEZ did win the East Cape Derby two runs back. That was an impressive win as he had to make up for some ground lost at the start. He has, bar the first two runs of his career, been the subject of heavy betting support. He was only ever out of the first three when he made his debut at Kenilworth in October last year. he has won on four occasions and finished second twice. He won his KZN debut three runs back at this track. He is bred to stay and will be involved at the finish.

DYNAMIC was a reserve runner for the Vodacom Durban July. He has steady form coming into this race and the fact that he was in the final twenty for the big race gives his presence some credence. He ran on for third in the Cup Trial last time. Last year's winning July trainer (Justin Snaith) and jockey (Richard Fourie) will be looking to prove the handicappers wrong.

SUN ON AFRICA won a lower division handicap last time. He ran a good race that day and must be given something of a chance, be it a small one. He did not show three runs back when finishing eighth behind LEGAL EAGLE in the SA Derby. This field isn't quite as strong though.

DOUBLE CLUTCH is never too far back. He has shown some decent form against stronger fields. The history of this horses has been a remarkable on. He made a miraculous recovery early in his career when he was not expected to be alive at one stage. His recovery has been almost miraculous and will have his supporters this afternoon. 

KILLUA CASTLE finished a close up second to LOUIS THE KING in the Grade 1 Summer Cup and then won the London News before failing to show in the J & B Met. He has been finding form and on class is by no means out of the mix.

If you are looking for a huge upset, then the Mike Bass trained MOUNTAIN MASTER could be the one to add to all permutations. His penultimate run to DYNASTIC POWER in the Greyville 1900 is certainly worth considering.

1st - ST TROPEZ (12); 2nd - DYNAMIC (2); 3rd - SUN ON AFRICA (14); 4th - DOUBLE CLUTCH (3); 5th - KILLUA CASTLE (1); UPSET CHANCE - MOUNTAIN MASTER (8)

RACE 4: SABC GOLD VASE (Grade 2) - HEART OF A LION is a stayer of note

There are no stamina doubts about HEART OF A LION. He has shown very good form over the longer distance races in his last three starts and he has also been finishing well. he takes on a bit stronger than last time but has raced against some  good sorts in his career. The Gavin Van Zyl trained inmate has improved in his last three starts. A win here will see him become a contender for the Gold Cup at the end of the month. Muzi Yeni has ridden him in all three of his last three starts and finished third on each occasion.

Cape Town conditioner, Dean Kannemeyer, sends out the four year old son of DYNASTY, SOLID SPEED. The DYNASTY progeny run well at this track. In fact DYNASTY was himself a Durban July winner. The yard has such terrific KZN form that it would come as a surprise if he did not fill one of the top two finishes. SOLID SPEED is unbeaten at this track (2 from 2). He has an excellent late turn of speed and should see out the extra. Stable jockey, Karl Neisius, has the ride.

CRIME VICTIM drops in class but steps up in distance. He is usually slow off the mark, but he will be running on late. Expect another top run from this Duncan Howells trained four year old. He will have the added bonus of having S'Manga Khumalo in the irons. 

WILD ASH is holding form well. The Geoff Woodruff yard has had a quiet KZN Season but with Piere Strydom aboard he could run into the money. He won aboard WILD ASH in the only time he rode him.

J'S OUTSIDER could be just that. He did not show in his latest run when making the move from Gauteng to the Dennis Drier yard in May. He could be given another chance but I do think he is way too inconsistent to win this afternoon.

1st - HEART OF A LION (2); 2nd - SOLID SPEED (1); 3rd - CRIME VICTIM (4); 4th - WILD ASH (8); 5th - J'S OUTSIDER (7)

RACE 5: ZULU KINGDOM EXPLORER GOLDEN SLIPPER (Grade 1) - Royal Day in prospect for PRINCESS ROYAL

The first of four Grade 1 races on Vodacom Durban July Day sees the two year old fillies go to the post for the 1400m event. The entire field takes the step up in class. The draw could play a vital role in the outcome of the race. The Glen Kotzen trained PRINCESS ROYAL is well drawn with good form as well. This daughter of CAPTAIN AL has won two of her five starts, but all of her runs have been over shorter. She is bred to get this distance and further. Watch for a good late run and the way in which she finishes suggests that she will not be deterred by the extra 200m. She is a classy filly and she has a very bright future ahead of her, jockey Greg Cheyne has ridden her on all five occasions.

Mike Azzie has had a fantastic Durban Winter Season with the horses he has sent down from Gauteng. FROSTED HONEY won on debut three runs back. She was not disgraced in the Nursery at Turffontein in late April. That was her last run before her short two month break. Expect a good effort from this daughter of WESTERN WINTER, who looks to be one that will improve with time. One thing is for certain, she will be impeccably turned out for the occasion.

Expect a day in which trainer Mike De Kock stakes a claim on the day's proceedings. The Australian bred ALMASHOOQA has had two good post maiden runs, but it must be said, against considerably weaker. One does not expect to see a Mike De Kock horse entered into a Grade 1 feature without a realistic chance of winning. Watch for improvement from this Sheik Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum owned filly. She should go into the larger Pick Six perms.

Only two Durban trainers look likely to pick up any Grade 1 trophies today. One will be Dennis Drier who has CHESTNUTS N PEARLS in this race and SEVENTH PLAIN in the next race and Duncan Howells with SAME JURISDICTION in the ninth race. CHESTNUTS N PEARLS ran in the Alan Robertson in her post maiden last time. She showed good early pace in that race but faded badly. That was only her second start and she is still learning what racing is all about. The extra 200m will suit this smart looking daughter of HORSE CHESTNUT.

MELLA MARIA is another Mike Azzie runner. She has two wins under her belt. She was given a run at Greyville last time, a race she duly won over 1300m. The extra 100m should suit. She can earn a small prize in this race.
1st - PRINCESS ROYAL (11); 2nd - FROSTED HONEY (4); 3rd - ALMASHOOQA (1); 4th - CHESTNUTS N PEARLS (3); 5th - MELLA MARIA (7)

RACE 6: DURBAN GOLDEN HORSESHOE (Grade 1) - Could be seventh heaven for SEVENTH PLAIN

The two year old son of SEVENTH ROCK, SEVENTH PLAIN has won three of his four starts. This smart looking horse looks to be the best bet for KZN Grade 1 success on today's card. Dennis Drier has won a Grade 1 race with already when he won the Gold Medallion at Scottsville six weeks ago. He looked most impressive that day when backed in on the day from 4/1 to start at 22/10. he never disappointed his supporters that day and looks unlikely to do that either this afternoon. He began his career in excellent fashion when he beat the talented BUCKINGHAMSHIRE on debut. His only blemish was when he lost to the same horse next time out. he has since won his last two in impressive style and goes for the hat trick. Anton Marcus who rode him to victory on each of his last two wins, rides again this afternoon. 

The Gavin Van Zyl trained REDCARPET CAPTAIN finished second behind SEVENTH PLAIN last time. At equal weights it appears unlikely that he can overturn the order. S'Manga Khumalo has ridden him in all four of his runs and rides him again this afternoon. He should improve over the extra distance and that difference between the two could be a bit closer although if setting off as he did over 1200m last time, he could be found wanting in the latter stages again today. The wide draw of seventeen is sure to have some influence on his chances, especially over 1400m.

MUWAARY has won two from his three starts. He finished behind both SEVENTH PLAIN and REDCARPET CAPTAIN when they met in the Gold Medallion. The Mike De Kock trained Australian bred two year old did win by four lengths when travelling over 1300m last time and the extra 100m looks to be well within his ambit. Watch for further improvement but the wide draw is bound to affect his chances. Anthony Delpech will ride again.

The Gauteng raider, ARABIAN BEAT has won three from four starts, all over nothing further than 1160m. Rightfully so, he will have many supporters. He looked super impressive last time when he won by four lengths last time. Admittedly, that was against weaker, but he could hardly have done more than he did that day and his ability should see him earn something again today. Craig Zackey rides him for the fifth time from five starts.

BRAZUCA is still a maiden but she did make an eye catching debut last time. He will have one of the best jockeys in the business, Weichong Marwing aboard. he would be a surprise winner but could be included in larger exotic bets.

1st - SEVENTH PLAIN (14); 2nd - REDCARPET CAPTAIN (13); 3rd - MUWAARY (10); 4th - ARABIAN BEAT (1); 5th - BRAZUCA (3)

RACE 7: 4 JULY 2015- VODACOM DURBAN JULY

This year's Vodacom Durban July looks to be another to live up to its history, drama and jolly good racing.

Trainer Sean Tarry sends out five of the eighteen runners. Of the five, LEGAL EAGLE looks to be the one the other seventeen horses have to beat. The three year old son of GREYS INN, himself a July winner, has had two fantastic Grade 1 wins coming into this race. She won the SA Derby over 2450m at Turffontein at the end of April when racing away from the field by three lengths. He followed that up by winning the Jubilee Handicap, also at Turffontein, by four and a half lengths. He produced a strong finish from about 300m out to win that one comfortable. He was not received any penalty for that latest win and should be carrying 57kg and not the 54kg he will have on his back this afternoon. He is the best weighted horse in the field. He has had only a short career thus far but has shown enough class to suggest that he should be the one to beat. From his six runs he has won four of them. His only blemish was on debut in October last year when he failed to show. He was not backed on debut and would have clearly needed the run. Jockey Anton Marcus, who won on him in his last two starts, has the ride once again. The only question mark against his name could be the fact that he has yet to see the Greyville circuit. 

For those who will be looking for a horse to make the quartets pay, then ICE MACHINE could be the one. He did win the Drill Hall Stakes over 1400m by three lengths last time when sent out as favourite. He was slow off that day but did run on well. In the 2014 running of the J & B Met he did finish three lengths behind HILL FIFTY FOUR. Whilst there are far better horses in this field with more of a winning chance, he could be the one to sneak a place. He has won up to 1800m before so the distance could be a worry.

Trainer Stan Elley sends out a horse for the last time in this race. What better way to end an illustrious career than a win with PUNTA ARENAS who will be running in this race for the third occasions. He did finish less than four lengths back in sixth last year. He has been running on well in recent starts and he won the Cup Trial at this track a few weeks ago. He comes into this race with a chance of earning something. This will be his third run after a creditable fifth behind FUTURA in the J & B Met earlier in the year.

There will be an abundance of support for WYLIE HALL, who crossed the line first last year and lost it, some thought, in controversial manner in the board room. He won his last two with Bernard Fayd'Herbe in the saddle. Once again he will partner WYLIE HALL. He beat MAJMU by over a lengths in the Grade 1 President's Champions Challenge at Turffontein at the end of April. He has had the ideal preparation and this five year old Australian bred should go close again this year. If the going happens to be soft, then this would enhance his chances even more.

TELLINA finished a good fourth behind FUTURA in the J & B at the beginning of the year. He will be running on and he finished third in a pinnacle stakes behind HALVE THE DEFICIT last time at Turffontein. He should be added to the quartets and trifectas.

Trainer Mike Bass knows how to win this race. He saddles HELDERBERG BLUE who looks to be improving at the write time. Do not write his chances off. He is often sent to the front to set the pace. He employed these tactics in the J & B Met and stayed on for third.

Another trainer familiar with the number one box in the July, as well as in the other centres world wide, is Mike De Kock. MAJMU is a superb three year old filly with an impressive record of six wins from eight starts. She finished just over a lengths behind WYLIE HALL last time but is ½kg worse off at the weights for that loss. One does feel though that she is still improving and one has to respect her, even in this tough environment.

One cannot discount the brilliant FUTURA, who has amassed almost R3½ million. Last year he finished less than a length behind LEGISLATE in this race and he was running on extremely well. Last time he flew late for fourth in the Gold Challenge at this track over 1600m. We must also not forget his brilliant win in the J & B Met earlier in the year. Carrying 60kg will not be unfamiliar to him. He will have his supporters, and rightly so, a win will not be out of  possibility.

FRENCH NAVY won the Daily News at this track over 2000m last time. Last year LEGISLATE won the Daily News and then the July in consecutive races. There will be a nice price about him.

PINE PRINCESS has done very little wrong and could place at best.

1st - LEGAL EAGLE (10); 2nd - ICE MACHINE (3); 3rd - PUNTA ARENAS (9); 4th - WYLIE HALL (2); - 5th - TELLINA (11)


RACE 8: CANON BUSINESS CENTRE HANDICAP (Listed)

ARNISTON won well when finding best form again last time. That was against a somewhat stronger field and that run needs to be respected. That was his first win in a little over a year. RAMPANT ICE ran a very good race in the Daily News behind FRENCH NAVY last time he finished fourth that day and should be a far closer finisher this afternoon. THE HANGMAN has been threatening to win again. he needs to repeat his juvenile form. KOCHKA has won against stronger before but form is a bit patchy at present. EASY LOVER did not have the clearest of runs last time. Ignore that run.

1st - ARNISTON (10); 2nd - RAMPANT ICE (1); 3rd - THE HANGMAN (4); 4th - KOCHKA (2); 5th - EASY LOVER (13)

RACE 9: JONSSON WORKWEAR GARDEN PROVINCE STAKES (Grade 1) - Good contest expected with CARRY ON ALICE to shine

CARRY ON ALICE was a fluent winner of the Grade 1 SA Fillies Sprint at Scottsville  six weeks ago. Her win that day was a top class win. She still has to show that she is suited to the "mile" even though she has finished second this C & D before. She is well drawn for this race and jockey S'Manga Khumalo has ridden her in twelve of her fourteen starts for five wins, four seconds and three thirds. On the two occasions she failed to earn was when two different jockeys rode her for Sean Tarry. She looks hard to beat but she will have some strong opposition.

The Mike Bass trained HAMMIE'S HOOKER finished a close second to the sensational BEACH BEAUTY in this race last year. On that run she must have an outstanding chance of going a few centimeters closer this time around. She has the best draw and should be finishing well. her run when second to one of the fancies for the July, MAJMU, in the Empress Club Stakes at Turffontein two runs back on a track with which she was not familiar. Big race day jockey, Bernard Fayd'Herbe has the ride. He has already won nine of her ten wins times when aboard.

SAME JURISDICTION is ½kg better off for a half a length defeat in the Tibouchina Stakes over 1400m last time. This is by far her best distance. She ran on well in the Tibouchina last time and could reverse the order over the C & D she is unbeaten (2 from 2). The draw of 14 may count against her. Jockey Anton Marcus riding for Duncan Howells, has the ride, which will be a big plus factor. 

SMART CALL won in her only start at this track last time when she beat PINE PRINCESS in the Woolavington, who has a money chance in the big one in the seventh race. On her run in the Empress Club Stakes in her penultimate she has quite a bit to find.

INARA finished behind SMART CALL last time in the Woolavington. She will have a chance if repeating some of her previous Cape Town form where she did finish second to MAJMU in the Fillies Guineas in December. She did finish 2,5 lengths back that day, but that was when MAJMU had that invincible look about her. The dark horse with a good draw. Grant Van Niekerk rides rides her for the tenth time from eleven starts. She is ideally distance suited.

1st - CARRY ON ALICE (9); 2nd - HAMMIE'S HOOKER (1); 3rd - SAME JURISDICTION (10); 4th - SMART CALL (12); 5th - INARA (11)

RACE 10: 

TIGER TIGER hasn't won in well over a year but he did show some improvement last time and has to be given a decent shout. At 8/1 he offers value. BARBOSA is a top class sprinter and is back over his more favoured distance. Yet to run on the polytrack. MUSCATT has very good form. Was not disgraced in third last time when finishing less than half a length behind PEJ in a pinnacle stakes race at this C & D. ROCK ME VAR won his last two, his first two at this track. Yard in terrific KZN form. Can win again. MR WHATEVER is a distance specialist with more to do for the win.

1st - TIGER TIGER (6); 2nd - BARBOSA (1); 3rd - MUSCATT (3); 4th - ROCK ME VAR (8); 5th - MR WHATEVER (2)

RACE 11: eTHEKWINI SPRINT (Non-Black Type) - For 3-year-olds

BELONG TO ME has good sprinting form. he won well at this track last time after having shown good early speed and then proceeded to hold on well. Anton Marcus rides for the first time. TRIPTIQUE has run six times for three wins and three seconds. Should be finishing well. Anton Marcus rides. ISPHAN hasn't won for almost a year. Stayed on when making his KZN debut on the turf last time. Stayed on well. EQUITY KICKER is never far back and has been finishing well in his last three. LOVE TO SAIL  runs on well and can earn.

1st - BELONG TO ME (2); 2nd - TRIPTIQUE (7); 3rd - ISPHAN (3); 4th - EQUITY KICKER (9); 5th - LOVE TO SAIL (12)

RACE 12: KZN YEARLING SALE MILLION (Non-Blk Type) - For 2 year olds

ROYAL PLEASURE was below her best last time after having won her first three. All four of her runs were at Scottsville. She will be running on and expect another good run. NATAL won very impressively on debut last time. This will be her toughest assignment to date. Looks to have scope. CHOSEN DASH ran a very good post maiden when running on and then followed that up with an impressive win last time. JUST AS I SAID won against weaker last time. First KZN run. VAR'S DREAM ran on well on debut last time. May need to con firm.

1st - ROYAL PLEASURE (13); 2nd - NATAL (7); 3rd - CHOSEN DASH (1); 4th - JUST AS I SAID (5); 5th - VAR'S DREAM (10)

Race 1,
Turf, 1,710 m, Maiden Claiming $20k, $18,000, 18:45 CEST

#8 Pretty Patsy missed just by a neck in her last two starts in Tampa; fast workouts here; gets 5 lbs off through most successful apprentice jockey

#5 Starship Espresso
missed in her recent two starts narrowly with a great finish from far behind; ran the fastest time

#1 New York Jackie finished 3 times on show position this year; gets 5 lbs. off through excellent apprentice jockey

#2 Pav's Fantasy was no factor this year in higher class; but should be noted at this level as well as #4 Vivacious Annie, which was recently 5th in higher class

#7 Planar finished 4th in her debut in March in a dirt-sprint in Aqueduct; never competed and trained on the grass

Analysis: Pretty Patsy ran well in Tampa and was the fastest in training here, so she gets the precedence over Starship Espresso


Race 2,
Dirt, 1 Mile, Claiming $6.25k, $16,000, 19:15 CEST

#1 Builder Jak finished among the first 4 in all her 8 starts and won trice; changed recently trainer twice through claiming, but still is ridden by her accustomed jockey

#2 Secret Memory
didn’t compete in 2014; needed after the comeback 4 starts for her first win, last time she bumped at the start and was not able to threaten the two leaders

#3 Centella disappointed recently as 4th over 11 lengths behind the 2nd pick; before she had won with an early lead

#4 Senorita Divina was no factor in higher class in her last 3 starts, here she should be noted as well as #7 Fair Shake, which gets 5 lbs. weight allowance through top apprentice rider

Analysis: Builder Jak won already in higher class this year and at this level easily, so her 4th victory is in reach


Race 3,
Dirt, 1,200 m, Claiming $6.25k, $15,000, 19:45 CEST

#2 Jo Jo Cool
pressured the pace throughout the race last time and was just beaten by half a length as 3rd; better post, but more weight today

#4 Mr. Nine Five Four won in May in higher class over this distance; failed recently in a turf-race, like several times before

#7 Dreamingoflawrence won after a few top places his first race; prefers to run in the lead, which is hard to get here

#5 Conspiracy Again lost his form in higher class, but here he could be a small factor as well as #6 Mighty Warrior

Analysis: Jo Jo Cool impressed in his first season start, here he should get the lead and last; the next two picks also like to run at the top of the field


Race 4, Turf, 1,500 m, Claiming $12.5k, $20,000, 20:15 CEST


#4 Happy to Be Here won 4 of his 10 starts this year and finished always among the first 4; prefers longer distances; switched trainer through claiming in his last two starts

#5 March Reward was no factor in his last 3 starts in much higher class; at this lower level he should fight for victory

#8 Picketts Corner won 3 out of 10 this year, but lost his top form after two trainer changes through claiming

#9 Live in Joy, #3 Mister Blues, #7 Holy Smoke and #10 Phineus should be noted additionally for betting wheels

#4 Happy to Be Here, #1 Scorpion Time, #2 Rockyshomerun and #11 Valid Concept are contenders, if the race is relocated to the dirt track (thunderstorms likely)

Analysis: Happy to Be Here was always in the final battle this year and is probably the favorite, but March Reward could be a serious threat


Race 5, Dirt, 1,200 m, Allowance opt. Claiming $16k, $40,000, 20:45 CEST

#1 Distinct Diva finished 3 times in the money after  “runaway-victory” in March; the good beginner couldn’t conquer the lead recently against the 2nd pick

#3 Benne First Baby
won two minor claimings with an early lead, then surprised with another win at this level against the top pick, which had a much worse post position

#4 Miss Darla quitted recently early over a mile, before she finished reliably among the first 4 and was a serial winner last winter; 5 lbs. off through excellent apprentice rider

#7 Duchess of Wicklow
won 5 of her 16 starts mostly in $12.5-claimings; her good late speed makes her a contender even in this higher class

#2 Capriccio Blue and #6 Emerald Citadelle are no real contenders, but could appear in the trifecta

Analysis: Distinct Diva should successfully take revenge against Benne First Baby, because from the rail post she could immediately dispute the command
