KINGSTON, Jamaica – Ten horses are down to compete in the second running of the Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited (SVREL) Sprint Trophy, a Graded Stakes event for native-bred three-year-olds over six furlongs (1,200m).

This website takes a close look at the 10 runners and their chances of winning.

  1. ALEXA’S LODGE: (3 ch f by Blue Pepsi Lodge – Alexa’s Song) – Did well to win on last coming off the pace in the Miracle Cure Sprint over 5 ½ furlongs. Faces tougher opponents here, so repeating is not an option for her.

  1. SILENT SEEKER: (3 b f by Silent Valor – She Sell Off) – Unplaced in her last two efforts but did win in a fast 58.0 seconds down the straight prior to those two dismal runs. Is capable enough and could go home earning.

  1. LOOSE BALL: (3 dkb g by Fearless Vision – My friend Lucy) – Came running on when last on the track only to be beaten by 2 ½ in fourth place behind stable companion Whoshotthesheriff and Basilicus over 5 ½ furlongs. . Should enjoy the half-furlong more and once again be in the thick of things.

  1. HIGH DIPLOMACY: (3 b c by American Dance – Code Star) – Has no chance of winning.

  1. ENGLAND’S ROSE: (3 b f by Natural Selection – Ahwhofah) – Was expected to romp home on last when going over the five-straight course on September 27. Broke behind the pace and never really got going and ended up finishing in third place, five lengths behind Laban and She’s A Hit. England’s Rose needed that run coming off a three-month break and basically she is much better than these and could put away rivals with the minimum of fuss. She, however, has injury issues which may again plague her ability to be at her best.

  1. ADORE BRILLIANCE: (3 b f by Adore The Gold – Brilliant Ace) – Improving and talented filly who was a comfortable winner on last over 6 ½ furlongs. Faces her toughest task to date but she is well capable enough and improving rapidly. Don’t be surprised if Adore Brilliance wins this one.

  1. BASILICUS: (3 dkb f by Performing Magic – Regency) – Was just caught in the final stages of the race by Whoshotthesheriff when travelling 5 ½ furlongs. Faces stiffer opposition now but Basilicus is fast and if allowed to dictate the fractions can spring a surprise.

  1. VOYTEK: (3 b g by Casual Trick – Royal Dutch) – A winner on last who may need time to come to grips with this level.

  1. RUM WITH ME: (3 b c by Casual Trick – Zacapa) – Based on current form, Rum With Me cannot be recommended.

  1. GLOCK: (3 ch f by Sensational Slam – Three Shots) – Closed fast towards the end to finish a length-and-a-half behind Whoshotthesheriff on last and was only a neck behind second-placed Basilicus. With the extra half furlong to travel, Glock is expected to be a lot more competitive.
