The Jewel Of The Mile – 25th March 2017

Jewel Of The Mile

I Got You Babe 

The Season 38 edition of the Jewel Of The Mile has attracted a small field but what it lacks in size it more than makes up in quality – of the seven runners entered at time of writing, three of them are previous cup winners – between Angel’s Flight’s Admiration, Manor Park’s Wester Rintin and Bristol Turk’s Bad To the Bone, they have won all medium cups in this generation.

Looking at previous cup runs, it would seem Admiration and Wester Rintin should fight this out – Admiration was impressive in the heat while the wiley fox Manor Park gave Wester Rintin a gentle breeze on the track – we can put a line through that run, Wester Rintin is sure to be up with the pace in the final.

The other trophy holder in the race, Bad To The Bone looked to lose a little form after the 3yo Breeders but reigning  Stable Of The Season Bristol Turks knows how to turn them out and Bad To The Bone is improving nicely, expect a solid run from the son of Requiem.

Captain’s Flicka and Big Bad Lawmaker have been there or thereabouts in all their World Cup runs and just a small turn of luck could see either in the Winners Enclosure on Saturday. Penniless has solid form against weaker while Creek Secured, being a stalker, could surprise on the day if placed in the perfect position for his final run.

Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Competitive
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by GOLDCASH

Stable comments: – “Hopefully Admiration found her mojo after winning the Australian Cup and can continue with her winning form, but it won’t be easy against a strong group of milers.”

Overall rating: Admirable(59) – Competitive
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by GOLDCASH
Lineage:By Sirius Whispers out of Istanbul

Stable comments: – “Not very happy with the heat run, horse/jockey way too eager. Running against some top stables who has her measure.”

Overall rating: Admirable(58) – Competitive
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by Bristol Turks
Lineage:By Requiem out of Hyper Kitten

Stable comments: – “Bad To The Bone did ok in the heat and will be fit for the final but this is a tough event. Any one of 4 or 5 horses can win so a good place will be satisfactory.”

5. Big Bad Lawmaker

4yo stallion from Burgersfortheboyz, Career earnings: $906,000
Overall rating: Excellent(61) – Breakaway
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by JamesBrown
Lineage:By Wild Thomas out of Comply Grun

Stable comments: – “The Lawmaker will be ridden more forward on Saturday evening in the hope that we may be able to trigger his breakaway ability. So far we have only been able to trigger the throwitaway ability . Shapes as a cracking race with Manor, Angel, Captain and Bristol going toe to toe. Worth the price of admission alone.”

6. Penniless

4yo stallion from regalroller, Career earnings: $1,207,489

Stable comments: – “Wasn’t bad in the heat but the final presents a much tougher task. Would be happy if he cracked it for the top 5. Wester Rintin and Captain’s Flicka are the two to beat and will likely have a vet edge on the rest of the field.”
