KINGSTON, Jamaica - After his encouraging second place finish behind the talented and out of class Sir Alton down the straight (1000m) on April 19, Rojorn Di Pilot should have no problems putting away rivals in the three-year-old and upwards Overnight Allowance highlighting event, again over the straight on Monday (May 17).
Taking orders from Ian Parsard, the five-year-old bay horse Rojorn Di Pilot, ridden by Omar Walker chased home Sir Alton in the aforementioned race which ended in a quick 58.2, losing out by 4 1/4 lengths. Rojorn Di Pilot therefore finished the event in a time of 59.1.
That was his first run since October of last year. With that pipe opener and working well coming into the race, Rojorn Di Pilot is set to go one better, especially travelling from the convenient outside draw.
God of Love, stepping down from Open Allowance company, should be the main competition.
God of Love has been on the move at exercise, posting a decent 36.4 for three furlongs (600m) a week ago. God of Love always acts well over the straight and despite not the best drawn at one and also with top weight, he has enough class to be a strong contender.
The likes of Laban should also make the race interesting. Laban was a winner over this distance back in September of last year in a quick 58.1, making him one to watch. Refitted with the visor, Laban could fight this out successfully.
The presence of Harry's Train, Eagle One, Ras Emanuel and Formal Gladiator should provide some early excitement.
