The Platinum Plate – 25th February 2017

Platinum Plate

It’s Raining Men

At first glance, Poseidon looks thrown in, but there is some form that suggests that Tic Tac can win his cup. I can’t really find anything else winning.

1. Tic Tac

6yo stallion from Desert Wind Stables, Career earnings: $1,362,200
Overall rating: Grand(68) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by Desert Wind Stables
Lineage:By Pocus Hop out of Pom Queen
Recent form:1,1,3,1,1

Stable comments: -“Tic Tac is a decent horse but I think Poseidon is in a different class all together. Heat times point to one outcome but stranger things have happened in finals…”

2. Poseidon

6yo stallion from St Simon Racing, Career earnings: $2,985,222
Overall rating: Tremendous(71) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by St Simon Racing
Lineage:By Blue Tyndareus out of Secret Rapture
Recent form:1,1,1,1,1

Stable comments: -“Poseidon has done nothing wrong in his career, but is in a hell of a fight here, against a runner from one of the nicest persons in the game.”

3. Big Bad Eruption

6yo stallion from Burgersfortheboyz, Career earnings: $1,697,200
Overall rating: Grand(66) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by JEDIMIND
Lineage:By Pompey Plodder out of Yummy Tamale
Recent form:1,3,3,2,2

Stable comments: -“This race is a match race in two between Poseidon and Tic Tac. Both have immense qualities and will take the fight right down to the wire . Unfortunately for our stable, we have accidentally training track’d our horse instead of a different horse and The Eruption is completely knackered. Will probably still run due to the small field but bettors please put a line through him as he will go to the gates rather knackered.”

Born:Fri 1st Jan 2016, bred by C M Pace Ranch

6. Cleon

Stable comments: -“Cleon should be in top medical condition on raceday, but that might not be enough to compete against the Mudlarks. Consider Cleon a longshot, but stranger things have happened.”
