The oddity of having two Grade One races on the same race day sees the country's leading sprinters locking horns in the six-furlong (1,200 metres) Lady Geeta Trophy and the distance horses going around the bend in the nine furlongs and 25 yards/1820 metres, Legal Light Trophy race.

Five horses have been entered for the Lady Geeta with t he Supreme Racing Guide doing its analysis in post position order.

1 SOY EL SENOR (5-gr-h - He'stherealthingJose Marsan) – Very active in 2018, having raced six times with his best effort being a third place behind Orpheus and Perfect Neighbour. Not expected to rattle the pigeons tomorrow.

2 CRUCIAL APPEAL (8-ch-g – Crucial Trial Late Appeal) – Won when last out, but that was in top claiming. Crucial Appeal is known as a speed ball, but even that ability will not help here.

3 MONEY MAGNET (4-ch-f – Nuclear WayneJazzy Jet) – This rapidly improving filly now seeks three wins in a row. Money Magnet already holds a win over Chace The Great this year and actually meets her rival on slightly better terms. Six furlongs may be considered the perfect distance, as Money Magnet can sit off the pace and strike in the straight. Money Magnet is a real credit to her trainer.

4SIEMPRE BUENO (6-ch-h – Market Rally La Reina) – A winner last time when at the track in the class below over the five straight. Siempre Bueno also finished ahead Money Magnet on January 6 in the race won by Zephyr, but since then Money Magnet has been punching his ticket. With Wesley Henry in the saddle, Siempre Bueno is going to lead with the rest always playing catch-up.

5 CHACE THE GREAT (5-ch-g – Greatness Our Miss Ruth) – Just behind Money Magnet in the Eileen Cliggott (six and a half furlongs – 1,300 metres) on February 17, the six furlongs of the Lady Geeta is probably the ideal trip for Chace The Great, who has been going well at exercise, galloping five and a half furlongs (1,100 metres) on Monday morning in 1:07.0. Chace The Great is tough and genuine, and whoever is going to beat him will have to be at the top of their game.
