THE JRA GOODWILL TROPHY AN OPEN AFFAIR


The 1400m Japan Racing Association (JRA) Goodwill Trophy has attracted a quality line up and looks to be a wide open affair. The feature race will headline the nine race programme at PRTC on Sunday which commences at 1.50pm.

 BLACK AND WHITE

BLACK AND WHITE heads the weights as he backs up from his encouraging 4th to Truson last week. The 7yo will be suited by the drop back in distance with 7 wins at the 1400m journey and the gelding will be a major player despite carrying 59kg.

The Frank Maynard stable will have three representatives in TIDAL WAVE, THE JEUNEYMAN and LOLITA.

 TIDAL WAVE

TIDAL WAVE has proven himself at this level and will find Sunday’s assignment much easier compared to his unplaced effort in the Perak Gold Vase (G1) a month ago. The 6yo has been a consistent performer this year and is a proven weight carrier.

 THE JEUNEYMAN

THE JEUNEYMAN proved a valuable acquisition to the stable last year with 3 wins from 6 starts and resumes after six months on the side lines. The 6yo has good first up form and jockey Y Aify has won twice on the gelding from three rides.

LOLITA is an American bred mare who raced with success in the UK notching 3 wins at 1200m. The 6yo has been freshened up following her first run in 16 months where she finished 3rd in Class 3 company at KL in May.

 SEA WORLD

SEA WORLD had no luck from a wide barrier in the recent Selangor Gold Cup (G1) finishing 6th, beaten 3.7 lengths. The 7yo is a versatile type who races best on the pace so luck will play a significant role from his wide draw (13).

PISCES STAR is gradually working back to his best form and looks a chance at the weights with the 3kg claim for in form jockey CK Khaw. LUCK SUCCESS was runner up to Truson last week and was successful over 1400m three starts back. The 7yo also looks well placed at the weights with 52.5kg

BEST BETS:

RACING GUIDE: R6 NO2 FLYING WINNER – Is yet to win in Class 4 company but has come close in its past two starts. The 6yo is coming off 2 seconds, the most recent last Saturday when he worked forward from barrier 14 and went down by 0.75 lengths over 1400m.  The Flying Spur gelding has placed 3 times at the mile as he searches for his second local victory.

TURF GUIDE: R5 NO7 ARIF – Is getting close to another win after going down narrowly over 1600m in Penang two weeks ago. The 6yo has won 3 times at the mile and will attempt to reverse the result on the horse that beat him in Penang, HALO INSPIRE.
