THERE is added value in the outcome of this year's Andrew H B Aguilar Memorial Cup, a race designated for two-year-old maidens run over eight furlongs, the longest race thus far this season for the juveniles.

Mr Starter and his crew will have to load 12 starters, of which only one is a first-time runner.

The Supreme Racing Guide provides the analysis of the horses in post-position order.

DEVINE LEXIE: (2.b.f – Natural SelectionPreach Preacher) — Has raced seven times with nothing to show for it.

NUCLEAR PROUD: (2.b.f – Nuclear Wayne Makin Me Proud) — Needs more time, races with the Tongue Tie on.

SUPREME SOUL: ( – Soul WarriorBeware Bay) –— This half-brother to Bigdaddykool makes his long-awaited debut over a mile. Supreme Soul has been steadily prepared for this one and could well make a winning start to his career. Supreme Soul faces tough opposition and will have to be right on spot.

CAIRO: (2.dkb.g – Freedom For JanteSpy Girl) — Coming along well so far but is going to have quite a task beating Duke who had 3 lengths over him when they last met.

WHAT'S YOUR STORY: ( – Traditional Right Marker) –— No story to tell as yet.

EL GRINGO: (2.b.g – Northern GiantHeart Throb) –—Nothing of worth has come from his two outings. Note both the blinkers and the Tongue Tie are off.

OUT ON A LIMB: ( – Who's Stayin On Storm Watch) — Nothing as yet.

DUKE: ( – Casual Trick Lady McBeth) — Has been coming along quite nicely in his three races to date. Duke shows a preference of running on in the straight and a mile might be just what he needs. Beaten by Juice Man over seven furlongs and with Juice Man not around should come up trumps if Supreme Soul is not better at this stage. Duke races with the Tongue Tie and Figure 8 off.

FIGHTING VALBEE: (2.b.f – Storm CraftJah Karma) — Showed improvement on last when finishing 4th by 2 lengths behind Riddim Up and will need to show even more to win this one. Fighting Valbee races with the Tongue Tie on.

ENVISAGED: ( – Fearless VisionAlpha Lupa) – Nothing from Envisaged as yet.

KING TAVARI: (2.b.c – American DanceSayamanda) — Did well first time out when finishing second behind Bold Aflair over 6 furlongs. Now with the introduction of the visor and having stripped fitter, King Tavari should not be ignored.

MATRIARCH: (2.b.f – Casual TrickWitchcraft) – Placed on last and with her seven-race experience might well do so again.
