The Epona Cup – 25th March 2017

Epona Cup

Pay The Piper

A typically classy and trojan son of Dancin, Solid As A Rock has all the hallmarks of a horse ripe to come out on top. Fit, distance suited and well drawn with a big race jockey to guide him home, Solid is our top-rated runner and he looks the part. With eye-catching prep runs, Rollin In The Deep will be ready to strike from a 4 draw and is a versatile sort who can adapt to the conditions – whatever the surface or pace may throw at him.

But it won’t be a walk in the park and the Troublemaker runner My Own Business will make sure that the others will know they have been in a race. Silverflash Flyer catches the eye and is a top-class sort who stays well. Nilda Lovely rides Bold Accent from the 5 draw. And he looks the right man, to achieve the nigh ‘impossible’.

Stable comments: – “Silverflash is a nice mare taken some time to get right. Like her stablemate Salamander Flyer she a consistent performer. This Epona is high quality field I hope she can be in the mix and get top 3.”

4. Rollin In The Deep

4yo mare from Bristol Turks, Career earnings: $2,937,677
Overall rating: Admirable(57) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by Bristol Turks

Stable comments: – “Rollin has ran an ok heat and should be fit by the final without any issues. Her form in Short events has been very good to date and I’m hoping for another good run on Saturday. That said there are a few capable of a win here so I’m expecting a competitive race.”

5. Bold Accent

4yo mare from Lost In The Fog, Career earnings: $376,711
Overall rating: Excellent(60) – Stalker
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by Lost In The Fog
Lineage:By Our Gary out of Mac Bacchus

Stable comments: – “My Own Business tired in the stretch of the shorter heat. I’d expect an instruction adjustment. Solid As A Rock ran brilliantly in its heat. My second choice. Silverflash Flyer not only ran a great heat, but made me some coin. My top pick. Rollin In The Deep, good horse & who doesn’t love Ersins? Bold Accent, another one of my ponies. Is a bloody stalker. Enough said. I’m open to sales offers.

6. Bitez

4yo stallion from BODRUMLUCK, Career earnings: $716,700
Overall rating: Admirable(58) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 22nd Jul 2016, bred by RIP Farms
Lineage:By Lucky Colours out of Mnemosyne

Stable comments: – “Very disappointing run in the heat therefore I am not as confident as I should be for the final. Still I expect Bitez will be in the first three. Rolling In The Deep and Solid As A Rock are the two to watch.
