TOBA Trophy looks a cinch for Latapy


KINGSTON, Jamaica - The running of the Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association of Jamaica (TOBA) Trophy is set to highlight a competitive looking 11-race programme at Caymanas Park tomorrow.

Eight are entered and gives its take on the outcome.

HEIROFFIRE: (3-y-o b. f – Storm Craft – Thisgirlonfire) – Heiroffire steps up here to non-winners of two to compete but is going to find it very difficult.

BLOOD FIRE: (3-y-o b. g – Strikewhileitshot – Proud Again) – Although it is not an easy task after just releasing the maiden tag to win the first time of asking at the level above. The manner of victory by Blood Fire suggests otherwise. Look for a good effort from Blood Fire.

AWESOME AVIATOR: (3-y-o dkb. c – Casual Trick – Royal Victress) – Although he faces Latapy here, Awesome Aviator has the capability to get by his opponent.

 LALALA BAMBA: (3-y-o b. c – Soul Warrior – Sysi) – Lalala Bamba should once again not be affected by this journey and can play a prominent role throughout this race.

EL GRINGO: (3-y-o b. c – Northern Giant – Heart Throb) –El Gringo seems to prefer a distance of ground and should not be left behind too far in this trophy endeavour.

CASUAL DRINK: (3-y-o-b. f – Casual Trick – Zacapa) – Casual Drink has been training fairly well coming into this contest and among manageable rivals, she is confidently expected to figure here. She has the class and with her talent known, Casual Drink can win.

SIR ARJUN BABU: (3-y-o b. g – Legal Process – Lady Abhijta) – Going a furlong shorter from his maiden win, should not be a problem for Sir Arjun Babu and so a capital effort is expected.

 LATAPY: (3-y-o gr. c – American Dance – Honeymoon Bay) – Not doing so badly in his races but looks to lack that killer instinct to win races. On last over 5 ½ furlongs on August 3, Latapy came from nowhere to finish in second place behind Soul Cure. He now gets the extended trip and should come into his own and challenge for top honours.
