Atlantic Blue after three wins since his debut earlier this year, in a Restricted Allowance 111 for four-year-old non-winners of four to be competed for over 6 ½ furlongs.
Quickgallop.com takes a look at the eight horses nominated for this event.
MISS FORMALITY: (4-y-o ch. f – Traditional – Jamaican Dream) – Rounding into good form of late with her last two runs being third place finishes. Miss Formality was a winner over tomorrow’s distance in the past, romping home by 5 lengths in a good time of 1:20.0 on October 6, 2018. If she can reproduce that effort, Miss Formality is going to be unsaddled in the winners’ enclosure after this race.
RICKY RICARDO: (4-y-o dkb. g – Storm Craft – My Friend Lucy) – Good runner who continues to do well in his races. Ricky Ricardo will enjoy this trip and should be competitive here.
KEY WITNESS: (4-y-o b. f – He’sthereal Thing – A Thousand Ocean) – shows up every now and then with surprising effort but a winning run here is unlikely.
KALAHARI: (4-y-o b. f – Natural Selection – Khadiliah) – Second best on last, finishing 14 lengths behind Messi over 9 furlongs (1,800m) on June 22. Kalahari will not find this distance too sharp and might cause anxious moments for the leading contenders.
ATLANTIC BLUE: (4-y-o ch. f – Strikeitwhileitshot – Luvable) – Late blooming filly who is unbeaten in three career starts so far. Atlantic Blue was most impressive on last when getting home by 2 ½ lengths over Dezzy The Genius going 7 ½ furlongs (1,500m) on July 10. Although she steps up to compete here, the improving Atlantic Blue will find these manageable and could make it four wins in a row. Watch this ever-improving filly.
ANASO (4-y-o b. g – Distorted – Slim Ting) – Not doing badly of late. Anaso finished a remote second behind Fly First Class by 4 ½ lengths on July 10. In that same race Anaso had Miss Formality 4 lengths behind him and that alone speaks volume of his chances here. Anaso should run a good race without actually winning but is going to be highly competitive.
SERGEANT RECKLESS: (4-y-o dkb. f – Storm Craft – Code Star) – Finished in eight place behind Dee Danger and Coralando on last over 5 furlongs (1,000m) straight. Sergeant Reckless should improve on that run and is expected run a much better rac.
SHE’S SYMBOLIC: (4-y-o b.f – Deputy Glitter – Cerebra) – A consistent sort who has been doing very well of late. She’s Symbolic has raced against much tougher fields than this and based on her back class, She’s Symbolic, if she is even 90 per cent ready, can win or get very close.
