The Pegasus Plate – 25th June 2016 – London Bridge Racecourse


The Pegasus Plate

No Love Lost

There is plenty of needle in the 5yo milers race on Saturday when Shinibana’s muddy Noddack looks to avenge an unlikely defeat last time by flying spurs versatile mare Savannah Flyer. In a high quality race, they are not the only two capable of winning it either and Angel’s Flight, New Scotland Yard and Gray Dog Stables will be out to settle a few scores of their own.

The Pegasus Plate to be run over the 1700m has attracted as good a quality field we could hope to put together anywhere on this surface.

There will be plenty of looking over the shoulder in this race.

1. Kingston Eclipse

5yo stallion from Angel’s Flight, Career earnings: $3,879,406
Overall rating: Excellent(60) – Mud-lark

Stable comments: – “This is Kingston Eclipse first time facing his rivals since his disappointing lost in the Jewel of The Mile. I felt running the 2nd leg last season so close to the Jewel made him out to be toast in that race. Hopefully he is more fit this time around and will give a better showing.

2. Savannah Flyer

5yo mare from flying spurs, Career earnings: $3,065,248
Overall rating: Excellent(60) – Mud-lark

Stable comments: – “Savannah has been great fun really, I have to say she been one of the few highlights in cups the last 2 seasons. I would simply love it if she could win, but Angel has a runner that very good Kingston Eclipse the one to beat. Noddack looks very good and Achilles won cups as well I will need luck to even get top 3.”

3. Jockz Frith

5yo stallion from Norfolk Inchance, Career earnings: $2,197,382
Overall rating: Reasonable(51)

Stable comments: – “I honestly only entered the P.P. at the last moment. I was just searching around TK on Saturday night and saw that the P.P. had some races for Sunday so I checked if I had any horses that fit the criteria for the race. I’m still at the learning stage of this game and was thrilled last week that I had my first runner in the TK final (although I finished last)! I really don’t think my runner in the P.P. has any chance as the horses that ran on Saturday have had an extra days vets, and my horse isn’t in very good shape at the moment, plus he isn’t as good as some of the others in the final, although I am looking at finishing better than last in the race, haha.”

4. Noddack

5yo mare from Shinibana, Career earnings: $986,875
Overall rating: Grand(68) – Mud-lark

Stable comments: – “I think both Noddack and Celsius (runs in GnuMad cup) are going to be top three in the finals, but probably not win, but you never know?”

5. Achilles

5yo mare from New Scotland Yard, Career earnings: $2,100,348
Overall rating: Excellent(64) – Competitive

Stable comments: – “

6. Side Frankly Yegad

5yo stallion from Benning Farms, Career earnings: $454,600
Overall rating: Grand(67)

Stable comments: – “I have no chance on winning. But I like to enter the races that the lower ranking stables might have a chance at. Seems like all the long time stables dominate this game. But I at least can say I’ve bred some decent stock”

7. Secret Window

5yo mare from Tony’s Trotters, Career earnings: $1,218,278
Overall rating: Acceptable(43) – Early sprinter

Stable comments: – “I like these races because they give your young, up and coming horses a chance at some decent prize money, whilst gaining valuable race experience.”

8. Trotter

5yo stallion from wittinton, Career earnings: $1,256,508
Overall rating: Acceptable(41) – Fast finisher

Stable comments: – “This will be my first outing in a ” big ” race .. so I’m pretty excited. Although my boy may not be up with the favorites for the race, he is a trier, so I won’t be too surprised if he is in the mix.”

9. Phunny Baba Slave

5yo stallion from Cape Hall, Career earnings: $616,439
Overall rating: Excellent(61)

Overall rating: Adequate(39) – Stalker

Stable comments: – “

11. Cutlass Supreme

5yo stallion from Gray Dog Stables, Career earnings: $2,401,336
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Stalker

Stable comments: – “Cutlass Supreme seems to be in good form with a win in a small qualifying heat and has beaten some fellow entrants in last seasons Australian Cup but with that said there will be some major competition from the likes of Kingston Eclipse, Savannah Flyer and Noddack with the muddies maybe too much to handle in this race.”

5yo mare from Royal Velvet Stables, Career earnings: $856,200
Overall rating: Reasonable(54)
