THE Coca Cola Invitational Mile, with its 11 evenly matched starters, is shaping to be probably the most competitive of the three major races on offer tomorrow on the Burger King sponsored Super Day of racing at Caymanas Park.

It is difficult finding the winner, which The Supreme Racing Guide tries to do in its analysis of the starters according to their gate assignments.

WITHOUT EXCEPTION: (3.b.c – Natural Selection Ahwhofah) — Has been developing slowly but surely. Raced twice in Overnight before winning and has since run twice in Open Allowance without a win as yet, beaten by Peking Cruz and the out of class Money Magnet. Without Exception is growing into a tough and gritty competitor and should at least hit the board.

SOY EL SENOR: ( – Although running some good races has not found the winners' enclosure since April and it is going to be difficult doing so tomorrow.

FAYROUZ: ( f – Blue Pepsi Lodge Princess Geeta) –— Conquered Open Allowance the first time of asking. Fayrouz is showing marked improvement and is turning out to be quite a talented filly. She has worked nicely coming into this race and has every chance of winning, plus the journey is right up her alley.

HOUDINI'S MAGIC: (6.drb.h – Performing Magic Milestone) — Won this race last year, but is now experiencing a drop in form. Houdini's Magic is a temperamental horse and if he decides to run at his best tomorrow then he has ever chance of repeating his heroics of last year.

ROYAL VIBES: (8.b.g – Royal MinisterNovember Lace) — At his age it is strenuous beating these.

UNCLE FRANK: (4.dkb.g – Storm Craft Dusty Milly) — A consistent sort who is quite at home over a mile and will do his best running in the straight. Yet, while not beyond him, Uncle Frank is going to have quite a task winning here.

DISABILITY CHARM: (3.b.f – ( Soul Warrior Runnin On Empty) — Showed a return to form on last, but that will not be enough to win this mile event.

HOVER CRAFT: (8.b.g – He'stherealthing Royal Pizzaz) — Another old stager who has a chance of placing.

SARATOGA SIGHT: ( Tapit Little Miss Holy) — Won on last but still needs time.

LIGHTNING LILY: (4.b.f – Storm Craft Rhythm Of My Heart) — Has done well this year, yet Lightning Lily cannot manage these.

HILLY'S HALO: ( – KhantharosHalo Jezabelle) — This imported filly won first time out in Overnight over 7seven furlongs — a distance she has never gone beyond in her career — on August 26 and has not raced since. Hilly's Halo is gunning for five in a row, two grades above, but has shown so much class that more than likely she will be the off-time favourite. Maybe, just maybe, her innate talent will take her home ,but jumping two levels and going a mile might be sticking points to victory.
