KINGSTON, Jamaica - Get ready for the eighth race on Saturday, June 8, 2024 - it's shaping up to be a thrilling contest!

This six-furlong maiden is open to three-year-old non-winners of two, with a focus on locally bred horses and international imports.

Eleven horses will line up at the starting gate, with trainer Anthony Nunes holding a strong hand, entering five of the eleven runners.

Let's break down the field with analysis from The Quick Galloper:

1 - UNCLE PECK: This bay colt (USA, March 31) by Producer out of Phantra is trained by Dale Murphy and will be ridden by Richard Henry. Uncle Peck had a rocky debut on May 19, experiencing gate issues and being declared a late non-starter. However, he's shown promise in training - his time may soon come.

2 - MAGNIFICENT FORCE: Philip Feanny trains this brown filly (USA, April 29) by Cloud Computing out of Cocktail Cruise, with Oneil Mullings aboard. After two second-place finishes, Magnificent Force disappointed in her third start, finishing seventh. Her trainer has made an equipment change, removing her visor - could this be the key to unlocking her potential?

3 - SHE'S THAT GIRL: Steven Todd trains this chestnut filly (February 24) by Sensational Slam out of Palace Gold, to be ridden by Tevin Foster. She's That Girl battled to win her debut start on May 5 and now tries non-winners of two for the first time. Catching the eye in training, she demands respect.

4 - SHOOTING STAR: This bay colt (April 12) by Tapiture out of Diffuse Nebula is trained by Fitznahum Williams and will be ridden by Phillip Parchment. The import is taking time to adjust but could be ready for a placing effort.

5 - UNDISCLOSEDLOCATION: Anthony Nunes trains this bay colt (February 15) by Casual Trick out of Bilingual, with Jerome Innis aboard. He won his debut down the five-furlong straight course and now tries non-winners of two - he'll get there eventually.

6 - GLOBAL MACHINE: Carlton Cunningham trains this chestnut colt (April 4) by Hedge Fund out of Springtime Rain, to be ridden by Jemar Jackson. He's struggled since moving to non-winners of two - that trend may continue on Saturday.

7 - BOLD MOVE: Gary Subratie trains this bay colt (April 5) by Sunshine N Shadow out of Money Move, with Omar Walker aboard. He's still learning at this level. 

8 - SMART TRICK: Anthony Nunes also trains this bay colt (February 1) by Casual Trick out of Crafty Lady, to be ridden by Matthew Bennett. Smart Trick won convincingly on his third start by going in front but will face a stiff test leading in this company.

9 - PRINCE AMAAN: Yet another Nunes entry, this chestnut colt (April 17) by Sensational Slam out of Fashionista will be ridden by Paul Francis. Prince Amaan has only raced on the straight course - how will he handle the turn? We have to wait and see.

10 - WORLD SURPRISE: Robert Halledeen rides and is trained by Anthony Nunes. This bay colt (April 17) by Sunshine N Sunshine out of Eighteen Karat has raced once this year and looks short for his second win.

11 - WARSAW: The fifth Nunes runner, this chestnut colt (May 3) by Sunshine N Shadow out of Full Moon's Enough will be ridden by Raddesh Roman. Warsaw won impressively on debut and enters this race with confidence. With Nunes' stable jockey aboard, he's a major contender.
