Boodramsing to land Marengo

Train­er John O’Brien has the fire­pow­er to win to­day’s fea­ture event over 1,750 me­tres on the main track at San­ta Rosa Park in Ari­ma. The top train­er has two three-year-olds en­gaged and both have the cre­den­tials to land the top prize.

Blue Nav­i­ga­tor, which won im­pres­sive­ly last time out, must be dif­fi­cult to beat with Ri­co Her­nan­dez in the sad­dle. He has im­proved con­sid­er­ably this sea­son and could win the spot­light event for hors­es rat­ed 60-45.

Who­ev­er beats Blue Nav­i­ga­tor will win.

How­ev­er, I am tak­ing a chance on the maid­en Maren­go, which is the sta­ble­mate of Blue Nav­i­ga­tor. This horse showed a lot of promise ear­ly in his ca­reer but dis­ap­point­ed late last sea­son. He showed im­proved form in his fi­nal start in the Guineas when fourth be­hind Re­gal In­ten­sion, af­ter be­ing held up off the pace. That day he fin­ished well and re­pro­duc­tion of that form will see him in the win­ners’ en­clo­sure with Bri­an Boodram­s­ing aboard

Michael Carew has Fast ‘N’ Fu­ri­ous en­gaged and this horse must be re­spect­ed

The oth­er horse which war­rants re­spect is Trova­tore. At his best, he must have an out­stand­ing chance
