For the first time this season, two-year-olds compete on the round course in the Front Runner Dash.
Seven juveniles have been nominated to face the starter in this five-furlong round offering for a two-year-olds at the maiden special weight level.
Three of the starters are racing for the first time.
POWERMAN: (2-y-o. b c – Dayton Flyer – Gold Price) – First time runner and with in-form jockey Shane Ellis as the chosen rider should attract some betting interest. Powerman while on the track has not yet shown that he is ready for a winning effort.
CRAFTY ZELLA ZEEN: (2-y-o b c – Storm Craft – Remmi Case) – To date, Crafty Zella Zeen has given the impression that he is more of a sprinter and now running one furlong longer might find the going tough but he is the most experienced and that might be enough to claim the first win. Crafty Zella Zeen races tomorrow with the blinkers off.
DAYTONA BELLE: (2-y-o b. f – Dayton Flyer – Burning Brightly) – Racing for the second time after her debut on July 13 when beaten by Wow Wow over three furlongs (600 metres), a race which Daytona Belle was never a winning factor. Tomorrow, Daytona Belle races with the tongue tie on and the hope is he will improve.
RUN JAYA RUN: (2-y-o b. f – Freedom For Jante – The Flying Bride) – Has already raced twice and even with those runs under her belt, Run Jaya Run will have to improve by leaps and bounds to win and release the maiden tag.
CHANAE: (2-y-o ch. f – Legal Process – Royal Train) – Comes to the races for the second time with nothing much to recommend her, yet Chanae is competing for at least a placing payout.
ANOTHER COMMANDER: (2-y-o ch. c – Sensational Slam – Diamond Princess) – Facing the starter for the first time. Another Commander has been seen quite regularly on the exercise track with a final exercise clocking of 23.3 seconds over two furlongs coming out of the straight.
TOMOHAWK: (2-y-o b. c – Natural Selection – Preach Preacher) – This full brother to Drummer Boy comes for the stables of Wayne DaCosta who has been dominating the juvenile scene this season. Tomohawk galloped five-furlong last weekend in a time of 1:01.4, thereby giving evidence that he is ready for a fruitful first effort.
