Eight of the leading sprinters in the country have been provisionally entered for this year's renewal of the None Such Sprint.

Named after one of the leading thoroughbreds to ever thunder down the track at Caymanas Park, the None Such Sprint is a Graded Stakes event contested over six furlongs (1,200m).

The race carries a purse of $1.3 million. Sharing top weight of 57.0 kg (126 lb) are Campesino, this season's consistent performer, and reigning Horse of the Year, Seeking My Dream.

The None Such is particularly important for Seeking My Dream as he seeks to earn enough stakes to qualify for the Diamond Mile – a race which Seeking My Dream has conquered on the first two occasions it was run.

Next comes the vastly improved Houdini's Magic, who has turned over a new leaf in his racing career after being allowed to lead in his races instead of coming from behind.

Houdini's Magic is handicapped with 55.0 kg (121 lb). Just half a kilogram below Houdini's Magic is Buzz Nightmare, an all-out front-runner who has been finding it difficult to rediscover his best form of late, mainly due to assorted injuries.

The rest of the field is comprised of the Dalton Sirjueconditioned Gary Glitter, Chace The Great who is now experiencing a dramatic upsurge in form, Talented Tony K from the stables of Patrick Lynch, and the Michael Beecham-trained Sir Budget.

Final nominations for the None Such Sprint take place tomorrow, with scratch time on Thursday.
