Stay with Legal Arena

POLLY B, who has been knocking a the door in recent weeks, boasts superior speed and will, no doubt, set off in front with ZUGULU and RALLY BABY in hot pursuit. But the Anthony Nunes-trained filly BERRANCA won’t be far away and, coming off a recent fast-time win with top apprentice Linton Steadman again in the saddle, should catch and beat POLLY B from the convenient mark of 51.0kg. The second race over 1600 metres for maiden four-year-olds and up looks tailored for the lightly raced SANADOR EXPRESS, with the improving 4.0kg claiming apprentice Andre Powell aboard. Trained by Clifford Atkinson Jr, the 4-y-o filly by Camadon out of Fireontheocean caught the eye on her debut last Saturday, finishing two lengths third (staying on) to PRINCESS STATISTIC over 1200 metres, despite being slowly into stride. Now better for the experience and a mile more suitable, SONADOR EXPRESS should win from MR TOPPER TOP MAN and IDON’TKNOW in a field of 10. AGAKHAN, with smart apprentice Bebeto Harvey in the saddle, should be rewarded for his consistency in the third race for $450,000 – $400,000 claimers over 1100 metres. The trip is ideal in a small field of seven. PIZARRO and the speedy GAGA LADY are twin dangers. The improving LEGAL ARENA won by all of 10 lengths in maiden company last Saturday and is tipped to repeat in the fourth race over 1300 metres for non-winners of two. Champion jockey Shane Ellis has retained the ride aboard LEGAL ARENA, who should lead home stable-companions TRADITIONAL STORM and TWILIGHT CITIZEN. The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by the fleet-footed RAISING THE BAR (Halledeen up) and RUNAWAY GIRL under title chasing jockey Omar Walker. Their respective dangers are GOLD MEMBER in the fifth over the straight and KING D in the sixth. FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIESlast_img read more
