ELEVEN horses are provisionally entered to contest the first in the series of races dubbed the Two-Year-Old Triple Crown, which starts next Saturday, September 29 with the Cash Pot 'Only One For Me' Trophy.

The series is sponsored by Supreme Ventures Limited, with the other races being the 'Pick 3' in November and the Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes on December 26 (Boxing Day).

The Cash Pot Only One For Me Trophy is run over six furlongs (1,200 metres) and carries a total purse of $2.95 million .

Of the 11 runners entered only four, — Baltusrol, Casual Drink, Top Shelf and Trevor's Choice — have visited the winners' enclosure before with the others being maidens. Duke ( Casual TrickLady McBeth) from the barn of the in form Richard Azan is a first-time starter. Another first-time starter is Reggae Gone Grammy, trained by Fitznahum Williams.

Trevor's Choice, trained by Philip Feanny, won on debut and looking to have some talent in his hoofs, and if he starts when final nominations are made tomorrow is sure to be competitive with a shot of winning for his connections.

The very impressive Casual Drink trained by Gary Subratie had tongues at the track wagging with delight when he won on debut, thereby strongly staking the claim to be the best of the two-year-old lot to race this season. If he makes the final list of starters Casual Drink is almost certain to be backed as the favourite in the Cash Pot.

Baltusrol comes from the title-chasing barn of trainer Anthony Nunes, has been developing well and a good effort is expected, again, if nominated to run by his trainer, while Top Shelf won after three tries and is slowly but surely finding her footing.

Of the others, most eyes will be fixed on Princess Annie hailing from the stable of champion trainer Wayne DaCosta. Princess Annie has flattered to deceive thus far in her career and it is going to be quite interesting to see her run against these.

Azan has two horses provisionally entered including the aforementioned Duke and Rohan Kabir, while trainer Ian Parsard also has two runners going after the Cash-Pot, Super Amia and Just Trick Me. In addition to Trevor's Choice, Feanny has entered Nevada into the mix.
