Favorita is a perfect fit for the Lady’s Slipper

JUSTIN SNAITH

Jack Milner: Based on her last performance at Fairview, Favorita has to be an outstanding bet at the Port Elizabeth track on Friday.

Trained by Justin Snaith, this two-year-old daughter of Gimmethegreenlight travelled from Cape Town in March to contest the Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery and trotted home by 9.75 lengths.

She returns to Fairview for the Listed Lady’s Slipper Stakes for two-year-old fillies and she meets most of the same horses she easily beat last time, again at level weights. Second on that occasion was Storyland with Eternal Hope a further two lengths back in third.

Favorita had another race in Cape Town – the Listed Perfect Promise Sprint over 1200m at Kenilworth on 9 June – where she went off a weak 5-1 favourite but never got into the race and was beaten 9.40 lengths by Captain’s Ransom.

The going was soft that day and that might not have suited Favorita but one should probably just put a line through that performance as she is clearly much better than that.

Eternal Hope and Storyland have also raced during June, this time over 1400m; and it was the former who won, beating Run Florist Run by 2.50 lengths with Storyland another 0.10 lengths back in third.

Run Florist Run is also in Friday’s race but over 1200m, Storyland could reverse that position.

The other feature on the card is the Listed East Cape Breeders Stakes over 1200m for fillies and mares and although not the best handicapped runner, it could pay to go with in-form Elusive Heart from the Glen Kotzen yard.

She was very impressive when winning over 1400m at the course last time and goes well for jockey Luyolo Mxothwa.

Mary O’ Reilly and talented-but-unsound World Radar look the main dangers but keep an eye out for any betting support for La Bella Mia who has some decent form over the distance in Johannesburg and makes her debut for Gavin Smith in Port Elizabeth.
