Who will be crowed the King of the sprinters? Cartel Boss will be the favourite to win the contest on Saturday at the Champ-de-mars racecourse. He will have to show his best form against very good sprinters.
Cartel Boss in a much lower category. After four easy wins he will be looking to win a Group 2 race. The Patrick Merven-trained horse won in his four outings over 990m. He showed speed at the start and a good finish to win easily.
Cartel Boss is the favorite, but he will have to overcome his bad draw at the start. He will have a tough task to take the lead with speedy horses on his inside. Cartel Boss will try to take full advantage of his lightweight compared to its main opponent, Color My Fate who has proven to be an excellent sprinter this season with two great wins over 990m.
He had completed the 990m in 54.37 seconds on his last win. His opponents will have to be very strong to beat him if he repeats his last race. Henry Tudor will have a good card to play. He won twice over 990m in 2022. He is in excellent physical condition. Henry Tudor will start from a good draw, and he might have a nice run on the rails. Trainer Ramapatee Gujadhur will have three good chances with Valyrian King, Marauding and Ziva La Winter. Valyrian King is a pure sprinter who has won over 1000m four times in South Africa. He is in excellent physical condition, and he can start with a win. Marauding will benefit from a fast pace, and it will be very dangerous at the finish, especially if there is a cutthroat for the lead at the start of the course. Ziva La Winter was not outclassed in his first three outings. He will line up for the first time on 990m. He will be very a good outsider as he has won once over 1000m and twice over 1100m in South Africa.
