Atomica the unanimous choice of trainers to win the Mouttet Mile
Richard Azan

THEY are at the racetrack everyday and trainers do know a thing or two about horses and their performances. Some shared their selections for the Mouttet Mile.

Richard Azan:

I think it is a grand race and hope the best horse will win. I think that without any problems during the race, Atomica should win quite easily, but it is all left to be seen. It is racing, and anything can happen.

Anthony Nunes:

Atomica is going to be very hard to beat in the Mouttet Mile. I mean, I know Mahogany and Jordon Reign’s are two good horses but she [Atomica] is really a talented filly, and she would have to have an off day Roy Matthews: for them to beat her.

Dennis Thwaites:

I think that Atomica will win the Mouttet Mile. She has improved a lot and she has pace, and I think that she will use that as an advantage. She is a very talented filly who should win.

Maurice Crooks:

My pick for the Mouttet Mile is Atomica. She has early pace and stamina, and even if she doesn’t lead she can sit off the pace and kick at the half mile. Atomica can regulate the pace and she can come off it; it doesn’t matter what she does, she is going to win the Mouttet Mile.

Ryan Darby:

Based on current form and speed ratings I have seen so far, I strongly think that Atomica should win the Mouttet Mile. Her performances have been outstanding, especially the last one where she won the Jamaica Cup, and if she comes anywhere close to that performance she will surely win.

Edward Stanberry:

It is going to be a good race, and the horse that I think will win is the talented filly Atomica. I am tipping her to win. She is a good horse and is going from strength to strength. I love her.

Roy Matthews:

Atomica is my pick for the Mouttet Mile. Based on her past and current performances she is going to be hard to beat. She is handicapped for the race, I mean 53.0 kgs is a gift. She has the ability to go in front and make a single move, as well as sit close to the pace and make a move when she is ready.

Nicholas Smith:

My choice for the Mouttet Mile is none other than She’s My Destiny. My friend owns that horse and so I am bringing her to win the race.
