The jockey-trainer combination of Shane Ellis (left) and Anthony Nunes look set to land the Mark My Word Trophy with Triple Crown winner Supreme Soul at Caymanas Park on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

Champion trainer Wayne DaCosta’s  ENGLAND’S ROSE will be racing the clock with jockey Omar Walker in Saturday’s five-and-a-half furlong Bearings and Accessories Trophy for two-year-olds.

A full sister to top-class campaigner and 2017 Horse of the Year, SHE’S A MANEATER, ENGLAND’S ROSE is unbeaten in two starts and has been catching birds at exercise, clocking super-fast times in the mornings at Caymanas Park.

Sex allowance makes ENGLAND’S ROSE five pounds lighter than Gary Subratie’s colt, WOW WOW, who has also won two races but was easily beaten by the filly when they met at three furlongs straight, late June.

Meanwhile, Anthony Nunes, who leads DaCosta by $16.7m in the standings, should land the open allowance Mark My Word Trophy with Triple Crown winner, SUPREME SOUL, to stay firmly on course to dethrone his rival, who last year won 13 consecutive titles for an 18th crown.

SUPREME SOUL’s lone threat in the six-horse field is SUPERLUMINAL, who has been burdened with topweight 126lb after winning the Owen Silvera Memorial at the level with 121lb.

SUPREME SOUL should have carried 115lb but Nunes has retained jockey Shane Ellis, who rides overweight at 119lb, signalling confidence at nine furlongs and 25 yards.

The Bearings and Accessories Trophy is the seventh of 10 events scheduled whereas the Mark My Word is the penultimate race on the programme, which runs off at noon.
