GOLDEN WEEKEND – Gold Cup looks a cinch for She’s A Maneater


The Gold Cup, the premier handicap race on the local thoroughbred racing calendar going a distance of 7 furlongs (1,400m), takes place tomorrow at Caymanas Park.

Although this year’s running of the Graded Stakes event has attracted a mere five runners, the presence of the brilliant She’s A Maneater still makes the race interesting even though it may seem to be a one-sided affair.

ANOTHER BULLET: (7-y-o b. h – Nasheet – Wisely Noted) – Another Bullet is a tough competitor with a never say die attitude, who will enjoy the distance at hand but he should once again follow She’s A Maneater home.

SARATOGA SIGHT: (6-y-o ch. h – Tapit – Little Miss Holy) – Saratoga Sight is going to find it tough against these.

MONEY MAGNET: (5-y-o ch. m – Nuclear Wayne – Jazzy Jet) – Money Magnet has prepared well from this encounter and despite the obvious credentials of She’s A Maneater and Another Bullet has enough talent in her fame to cause problems for both.

HOVER CRAFT: (9-y-o b. g – He’stherealthing – Royal Pizzaz) – Hover Craft cannot win.

SHE’S A MANEATER: (5-y-o b. m – Natural Selection – Ahwhofah) – Without a doubt the top-rated horse in training at present. She’s A Maneater is on top of her game right now with four wins from five starts this season. After her fourth-place finish behind Another Bullet in the Lady Geeta Trophy over 6 furlongs (1,200m) on April 20, She’s A Maneater has been unstoppable, racking up three straight wins. She has accounted for Will In Charge once in the Legal Light Trophy on May 18 and Another Bullet twice on July 6 and July 20. She’s A Maneater, although much more effective going longer, is still very dangerous at this distance and it is going to take an extra-ordinary performance to deny her a fourth consecutive win.

SUMMARY: Expect Money Magnet and Another Bullet to vie for the lead with She’s A Maneater sitting close by in third. Saratoga Sight should run in fourth with Hover Craft last. She’s A Maneater is going to make her move leaving the three-furlong marker as Another Bullet pulling his way to the lead. In the straight after a brief contest She’s A Maneater will pull away for a two-length victory.
