GIMME A PRINCE raised to 130

1 year 1 month ago

• Golden Horse Sprint (Handicap) (Grade 1)

GIMME A PRINCE has had his merit rating raised from 125 to 130 after he captured the Grade 1 Golden Horse Sprint (handicap) over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Saturday 3 June. The Handicappers were of the unanimous view that 4th finisher BARTHOLDI made for the most suitable line horse here, which leaves him unchanged on a mark of 119.

There were also raised ratings for runner-up THUNDERSTRUCK, who was lifted from 115 to 117, and for 3rd finisher SURJAY, who is up from 117 to 119. The only other increase was for 5th placed PEARL OF ASIA, who was 8 pounds or 4 kgs under sufferance at the weights and who accordingly goes up from 105 to 112.

No fewer than six horses were given a rating’s drop. SEEKING THE STARS is down slightly from 124 to 123, UNDER YOUR SPELL is down from 114 to 113, FULL VELOCITY drops to 108 from 110, TAIKONAUT is down from 117 to 115, GOOD TRAVELLER drops to 110 from 113, and lastly AFTER THE RAIN was trimmed from 105 to 104.

• SA Fillies Sprint (Grade 1)

PRINCESS CALLA, who was highest rated on her 127 rating, remains unchanged on that mark following her success in the Grade 1 SA Fillies Sprint for fillies and mares over 1200m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Saturday. It was in fact PRINCESS CALLA herself who was deemed to make for the ideal line horse when assessing this event, which is the reason for her unaltered rating.

The only ratings increases were for 4th placed COLD FACT, who is up from 112 to 115, and for 6th placed IPHIKO, who goes up from 107 to 109 to at least make her one pound higher than the 108-rated 8th finisher WHOA WHOA WHOA.

There were ratings drops for three horses. AMEENA is down slightly from 112 to 111, STIPTELIK drops from 108 to 107, and lastly AUNTY LIZZY is down to 100 from 102.
