-Trainers promising scorching feature event
As the countdown enters one-day away, trainers from the respective stables that have entered horses for tomorrow’s Four Horseman / Jumbo Jet ‘Golden Jubilee’ Race Meet are predicting a scorching feature event,
at the Port Mourant Turf Club.
The early betting favourite King Knight who was recently imported by the Jumbo Jet Stables has been reported as going excellent during exercise gallops and this show of form has made him the odds on favourite to win the feature ‘A’ Class event.
However, member of the Organising Committee Compton Sancho, who visited Berbice earlier in the week, speaking with Kaieteur Sport yesterday said that even though the betting favourite seems to be in great form, horses such as CP Got Even, Golden Blue Echo, Lady Budapest, Princess She’s Not and Plum Plum have all been impressive during gallops as well and he is predicting a riveting battle down the homestretch for the top prize.
