EIGHT?of?the?leading three-year-olds will test their talent in today’s feature, the Grade II Michael Parravicino Memorial Hopeful Breeders’ Stakes & Trophy over 1 570 metres at the Garrison Savannah, with several having the potential to become classic winners.
The showdown will see seven winners clashing in the first major trial of the season.
Based on his last victory over most of today’s field, Corvette will be favoured and is expected to go very close.
Owned by Neville Isdell and trained by Andrew Nunes, the son of Super Jeblar out of Signorina is the only double winner from this field while six of the other seven have recorded a solitary maiden success.
Corvette was very impressive in his two wins to-date, especially his last when taking the Diamonds International/Vena D’Amore Condition race at today’s distance. With champion jockey Anderson Trotman aboard once again, his chances remain prime.
Nobel Intent’s display of good speed from the gate makes him very lethal. He was only just collared last time out in the final couple of strides by Corvette but should he find a firm track, he could very well turn the tables on the favourite.
Margarita was an impressive winner in her first outing – the Maid of Honour Condition race – over 1 100 metres when she showed tremendous ability and maturity in rather strange track conditions. Based on that and with improvement very much in the forecast, one can expect something special from her again.
John Vere took care of a real soft crowd when taking the Diamonds International Gift Handicap over 1 100 metres, but for repeat success he will need to find plenty more at this stage.
Jakeandsam will need to duplicate the performance in the Mrs Claus Allotted Weights over 1 100 metres to revisit winner’s enclosure.
Conway has claimed minor ends of the purse at today’s distance and he will be hard pressed to pull off this one but remains a contender.
Jasmine simply never fired following her lone victory in the Hyundai Accent Allotted Weights Race, also over 1 100 metres, as she finished toward the rear on the Boxing Day race card. That race was won by Corvette where Jasmine was only seven and three-quarter lengths off, so she could bounce back with a stellar performance
Kamezetta, after showing some promise in her last start, has been away from the track since September 13, an indicator that something might have gone wrong. Losing her maiden tag remains a priority for this rank outsider.
