Race four tomorrow will be the start of the Diamonds International/Montblanc series of five races, when the two-year-old colts and geldings meet going 1 000 metres.
Jack is Back is the only winner in the field, having won on the first day. However, tomorrow could be an uphill task for this horse to be back in winner’s circle, as they are two very good maidens entered in this one who are capable of finishing first and second. They are the Lord Michael Taylor-owned, Andy Ward-trained pair of Must be in The Money and Vitality. Sail On is also a threat here as he finished second to Jack is Back.
Race six is the second in the series – the fillies division of the race – and this one could end up a straight fight between Kendal Moon Fernandina and The Milk Maid, who ran an improved race.
Another very exciting race should be the seventh on the card, the Diamonds International/ Montblanc Blac Meisterstock (Handicap) for three-year-olds and over, rated 0-140, going 1 800 metres.
Both Duc D Fer and John Brian return to racing after a long rest, and they come up on the likes of Creoles Apostle, Show Me The Money and the three-year-old filly, Amanyara. Then there is Bipin Walk On By and the very improved, American bred three-year-old Mingun Temple, who could prove to be the one they all have to beat.
Sponsors Diamonds International will be very pleased with the eight race card, as all but one race should see a full gate, where it is expected there will be 11 facing the starter.
A large crowd is expected to be at the Garrison to witness the day’s racing.
