The main event of this weekend will be on Sunday with a strong field made up of Walls Of Dubrovnik, Frosted Gold, Captain Lannister, Xavion and Color My Fate will contest to win The Maryse Justin Memorial Cup (1400m – G1). Captain Lannister will be the biggest danger for his stablemate and favorite, Wall Of Dubrovnik.
Walls Of Dubrovnik won easily last time bagging his 13th victory in 14 outings in Mauritius. He has already beaten Frosted Gold in the Gold Cup in 2022. He has had some excellent gallops and he is close to his peak. He is the horse to beat.
Frosted Gold was impressive in his previous victory over 990m on the 25th meeting. He remains a classy horse, and he is the holder of the trophy. He has shown very good form in training over the past two weeks. He can do it if everything goes his way.
Captain Lannister, stablemate of Walls Of Dubrovnik, won two great races. He has gone better and better in training. He is a formidable front runner who can do it from start to finish. He will be the main danger for the favorite.
Xavion was beaten by Walls Of Dubrovnik in an handicap race last time. He will try to take his revenge at weight for age. It seems that this will be complicated for him, but he can will try his best.
