Nuclear Power ready to explode in President's Cup

The Har­ri­ram Gob­in trained Nu­clear Pow­er who won last year's Gold Cup is my se­lec­tion to win to­day's fea­ture event the Grade Three— Pres­i­dent's Cup over 1,900 me­tres on the main track, at San­ta Rosa Park, Ari­ma this af­ter­noon. Car­los Ro­jas has been booked to part­ner the Shiv­am Ma­haraj owned 2018 Gold Cup win­ner, to get back on the win­ning trail.

The fil­ly has been spe­cial­ly pre­pared for this event and has the class and stay­ing pow­er to out­run her ri­vals. On the form book, the im­prov­ing Nu­clear Pow­er will be dif­fi­cult to peg back.

With last year's win­ner, Princess Suri side­lined, the ten hors­es that are ex­pect­ed to cre­ate a very com­pet­i­tive field. Last year's run­ner up Mag­i­cal Vic­to­ry from the barn of Michel Carew (Jnr) is ex­pect­ed to run a big race yet again, along with last year's third Bat­tle Cry from the John O'Brien Sta­ble.

Cham­pi­on train­er Glenn Mendez at­tacks this event with Whis­per Light and Cae­sar Coun­try two hors­es that can­not be over­looked. The 2018 Stew­ards Cup win­ner Whis­per Light at­tempt­ed to do the Stew­ards Cup-Gold Cup dou­ble but came up short by three inch­es. The enig­mat­ic Whis­per Light could go very close once again for cham­pi­on jock­ey Ricky Jadoo.

Cae­sar Coun­try is well weight­ed on 49.5 ki­los and could run a big race for Sven Bal­rooop. He has a touch of class and could sur­prise them all.

For­mer Cham­pi­on train­er John O'Brien at­tack the event with two run­ners in Thisones­for­ron and Gen­er­al JN. The for­mer is a classy in­di­vid­ual and has a big heart. He will go close if any­where near his best. How­ev­er the classy Gen­er­al JN re­turned to rac­ing suc­cess­ful­ly last time out and with 52 ki­los and Ri­co Her­nan­dez in the sad­dle, he could make them all run.

The horse which every­one ex­pects to go very close is the sta­ble­mate of Nu­clear Pow­er Mas­ter of War which has raced un­beat­en in his last five starts go­ing back to 2018. Yoseny­er Ser­ra­no will ride this horse which has been im­prov­ing steadi­ly and must be re­spect­ed.

Post time for the first event to­day is 1:05 pm.
