The minor feature at Borrowdale Park on Sunday is the 1600m Tote Free Handicap where apprentice allowances may be claimed.
Five lightly raced three-year-olds have accepted and Tigers Eagle, Days Gone By and Cutback seem the pick. The race is due off at 13.40 and the stake is US$2000.

1 Drawn 2 TIGERS EAGLE 60 kgs (MR63) Satombo – Debra Swanson …3-year-old filly by Flying The Flag (IRE) – Neck Of The Woods by Al Mufti (USA)
Winner of 1700m Maiden Plate from 3 starts, and third in 1800m Novice Plate. Has beaten Cutback and is a likely favourite.
2 Drawn 3 CUTBACK 59.5kgs (MR62) *Shumba (4.0) – Thomas Mason …3-year-old filly by Twice Over (GB) – Suedette by Dynasty
Placed in all four starts from 1000m to 1700m and deserves respect.
3 Drawn 4 MASTER MING 57.5kgs (MR58) Derere – Thomas Mason …3-year-old colt by Toreador (IRE) – Madame Ming by Overlord (AUS)
Won his first start over 1000m but disappointing over more ground – so far.
4 Drawn 5 DAYS GONE BY 57kgs (MR57) Takawira – Debra Swanson …3-year-old filly by Byword (GB) – Rememberance by Fort Wood (USA)
Relished the extra distance when winning 1800m Maiden Plate on December 4. Well held by some of the other runners over shorter but this is a different ball game.
5 Drawn1 LADY SANZA 57kgs (MR57) *Josi (4.0) – Gokhan Terzi …3-year-old filly by Rafeef (AUS) – Supreme Dynasty by Dynasty
Very impressive winner of her only start – a 1000m Maiden Plate for three-year-olds on October 10. A dark horse and your guesses are as good as mine.
