Leading trainer Anthony Nunes, after scoring seven winners during the last three race days and increasing his lead over main rival Wayne DaCosta by more than $1. 5 million based on preliminary calculations, seems set to dominate again at the juvenile level with newcomer Toona Ciliata.

Seven two-year-olds race tomorrow in a maiden condition event over the five-straight course.

The analysis of the runners is provided below in post-position order.

MATRIARCH: (3.b.f – Casual Trick Witchcraft) — Has been having a heavy schedule having raced just fours days ago, and is going to be heavily taxed even to deal with the several newcomers in this race.

ROJORN DI PILOT: (2.b.c – Liquidity I'm Magic) — Did well on his only run to date when finishing second behind the more-than-useful Universal Boss. Has been keeping up his work in the mornings and should be there at the finish. Rojorn Di Pilot races with the blinkers on.

DON JULIO: (2.b.g – LiquidityLittle Wasp) — Has been coming to a lot of parties without getting a dance and will not find a partner tomorrow.

TOONA CILIATA: ( - Soul Warrior Red Gold) — Another young one from the red-hot camp of trainer Anthony Nunes. Toona Ciliata has been progressing well at morning exercise, travelling 1:00.3 for five furlongs round in his last gallop to signal his debut readiness. Red Gold, the dam of Toona Ciliata, is from the distinguished Super Lei line.

SUNRISE: ( – Rising MoonLaw Lady) — Two outings to date without anything to report.

RONAN'S CHOICE: ( Traditional Priceless Beauty) — First-timer to be waited one.

ENEDINA: (2.b.f – Film Director Yaella) — Significant that Dane Nelson has accepted to ride this debutante. Enedina is a half-sister to the well-appointed Campesino. Let's watch and see how she performs tomorrow.
