Giving Crimson Another Chance At The Overnight Level


KINGSTON, Jamaica – The King’s Plate run in honour of former Derby winner and prolific Grade One campaigner A King Is Born is the feature call on the 10-race card of Saturday, April 1, 2023.

The King’s Plate is an Overnight Allowance event for three-year-olds and upwards horses going 7 ½ furlongs.

The Quick Galloper’s assessment is provided below.

1 – SIR JOHN is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

2 – EL PROFESOR blows hot and cold in his performances. Which El Profesor will turn up on Saturday is left to be seen. The presence of the leading rider and the current form of his stables give an indication that a good effort is in store.

3 – FREEDOM STREET is stepping up in grade after conquering his various conditions. Freedom Street is known for his speed and is expected to be around on the front end when the gates open.

4 – EAGLE ONE has been a regular partygoer in recent times being heavily backed yet has not found the winning formula. The distance will be troublesome for Eagle One.

5 – CRIMSON gets a drop in weight and the distance is right for this veteran campaigner. Crimson true to his running style will sit off the pace and then do his best work in the two furlongs of the stretch drive. He will be a deciding factor in this one.

6 – POWER RANKING simply does not belong with these.

7 – BIG BIG DADDY has been flirting around in Overnight Allowance with nothing much to show for his endeavours. Can be backed for a place on the board.

8 – MONEY MONSTER is always present in his engagements with 7 1/2 furlongs just about right for this six-year-old gelding. Just failed when he last faced 21 days ago, and now meets Crimson on the same terms with the distance more in favour of Money Monster. The perfect opportunity is now presented to Money Monster, who will be difficult to beat.

9 – PRESS CONFERENCE was a winner in this grade on March 20. Then the opposition was weaker making the task here for Press Conference.
