The Up & Coming Sprintstar – 21st January 2017

The Up & Coming Sprintstar

“Hell’s Bells”

A good field of runners lines up in this typically interesting 1200m cup on the Saturday, with the quality boosted by triple crown winner, Angel From Hell. She has been threatening to score her eighth cup after two season’s absence from the winner’s enclosure. Hareeba’s Haylist is a lightning fast son of Top Eight, who will enjoy the run of the race from his 3 draw. Naksup Alien is a pacy and consistent daughter of Lord Snowdon, and is a horse going places – she looks the right one.

Winx Starz is well settled at her new yard and could put a winning effort together. Saintasia Flyer from the flying spurs yard is a mostly battling 6yo entire with a frustrating formline while the Fairlawns-trained Revenge Jakobs has not won in awhile but continues to find minor place money. All of Shuda Bena Muddy, Sihirli Toynak and Purple Reign are never far off the action, and need to be watched. 

As is to be expected, a case can be made for much of the field.

1. Saintasia Flyer

6yo stallion from flying spurs, Career earnings: $579,400
Overall rating: Excellent(63) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by Fourmyle Stables

Stable comments : – “Saintasia is running for the experience and just see how good he is. Naksup Alien looks the obvious favorite and Hay List look a real chance, Winx Starz if she in touch.”

2. Winx Starz

6yo mare from woodchuckers, Career earnings: $1,391,540
Overall rating: Grand(67) – Competitive
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by Briarwood Stables
Lineage:By Double Shot out of Loves Arabica

Stable comments : – “Finally Winx gets a chance to run a cup final is not what I term a pure sprinter more like a short horse. I think Winx may find other runners will have more toe this time around so hopefully get close enough to getting a tow and can finish off for a top 3.”

3. Hay List

6yo stallion from Hareeba, Career earnings: $2,487,000
Overall rating: Grand(69) – Early sprinter
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by FRAMPTON
Lineage:By Top Eight out of Legs Exige

Stable comments : – “Hay List will have to start better from the gates to be a competing chance. That’s the racing style of early sprinters. Hoping for Hay List to ping out of the gates and be leading or close to it… Good luck all.”

4. Angel From Hell

6yo mare from DR Stables, Career earnings: $4,938,946
Overall rating: Grand(69) – Stalker
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by DR Stables
Lineage:By Blitzen out of Burning

Stable comments : – “Angel From Hell will have to recapture her earlier form if she hopes to win this final. In an attempt to get her to settle early in the race, Elease Frabotta, a fires up late jockey gets the call. If the pair can settle early and allow the stalker style to kick in Angel From Hell will be a contender.”

5. Dirtylittlesecret

6yo mare from DR Stables, Career earnings: $2,625,310
Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Early sprinter
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by DR Stables
Lineage:By Blitzen out of Weer Flawless

Stable comments : – “Dirtylittlesecret will be out winging it early and will be closing late. Don’t think her late burst will be quick enough to get the win with this quality field. The race is wide open with several horses having a good chance winning. Naksup Alien looks the best in this race off recent form. Hoping for top five finishes from both of the stables entry.”

6. Naksup Alien

6yo mare from BODRUMLUCK, Career earnings: $2,154,800
Overall rating: Grand(67) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 15th Jan 2016, bred by Secret Revolution
Lineage:By Lord Snowdon out of Secret Explosion

Stable comments : – “I believe Naksup Alien will end up with the trophy. Well prepared and conditions to suit, she will be very hard to beat. Would prefer lower draw but hey can’t have them all.”

7. Shuda Bena Muddy

6yo gelding from trouble racing, Career earnings: $3,014,071
Overall rating: Grand(65) – Stalker
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by Pugstable
Lineage:By Wingard out of Thundra

Stable comments : – “Disappointed last run but with the step up in distance the horse should improve. Out to prove he can compete at this level.”

8. Revenge Jakobs

6yo mare from Fairlawns, Career earnings: $749,255
Overall rating: Admirable(56) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by Fairlawns
Lineage:By Muirin out of Suckin Found

Stable comments : – “I know Revenge Jakobs will be the lowest rated horse in the race, we are racing against some of the best and most experienced trainers in the game, and if we don’t finish last it will be a great achievement. I absolutely love playing this game and I relish the challenges that it provides. I’m using this race as a yardstick for my sprinters of the future, so one day I’ll be back with a realistic challenger. I think Angel From Hell will win and even if my horse does finish last it will have been great fun taking part.Good luck all.”

9. Purple Reign

6yo stallion from Slo Mo Stables, Career earnings: $1,563,725
