Superluminal, Nuclear Affair fancied for feature races

first_img NUCLEAR AFFAIR, a classy three-year-old filly from the stables of Gary Subratie, is coming off a fast-time win over this trip in the Seek Exercise Book Trophy on August 20. Now back to good form and Robert Halledeen retaining the ride, this year’s 1000 Guinea winner will not go down easily as she will report even fitter for this race. Stable-companion BRAWN, CAMPESINO and topweight PHINEAS are all ideally suited to the distance and should make it close, especially PHINEAS, who has beaten some of the best horses in the past year, including ‘Horse of the Year’ SEEKING MY DREAM in last November’s CTL Invitational Mile. Other firm fancies on the card are DREAMLINER, with leading jockey Omar Walker aboard in the seventh race over the straight for the Nasatol Trophy, UNBREAKABLE to repeat in the third, SEEKING THE DAWN in the fourth and BURNING MEDIC in the eighth. TODAY’S 10-race programme at Caymanas Park will feature the open allowance race over 1300 metres for the Saint Cecelia Cup and the overnight allowance race over 2000 metres for the Kenneth Mattis O.D. Memorial Trophy. With the 2015 St Leger winner SUPERLUMINAL now back to winning form, having scored decisively over 1400 metres recently, the four-year-old son of Natural Selection ought to be followed, especially over the distance at which he won the St Leger in July last year as a 35-1 outsider. Paul ‘Country’ Francis will again ride SUPERLUMINAL from the convenient mark of 53.0kg and should get the job done ahead of proven course horse, TIMEFORARMS, with apprentice Bebeto Harvey aboard. A more competitive race is the annual renewal of the Saint Cecelia Cup to be contest by 10 horses, including the recent winners NUCLEAR AFFAIR, PHINEAS and TRADITIONAL PRINCE, as well as CAMPESINO, BRAWN and DREAMCOMETRUE, who have been running well in recent months.
