Bet on ‘Black’ in Tokyo Yushun

Equinox (Jpn) was a bit unlucky not to participate in Do Deuce (Jpn) (Heart’s Cry {Jpn}) in G1 Tokyo Yushun (Japan Derby) 2022, falling narrowly after sustaining a rally price long from near the end of the season. field. The flashy pony got the last laugh as it was named Japan’s Horse of the Year, and its Kitasan Black (Jpn) pony has every chance to breed with quinella during this year’s renewal at Fuchu Racecourse on Sunday afternoon.

The two runners may be closer to the same than on paper. Eastern Sun (Jpn) will start a hot favorite in the world’s richest Derby, and deserve it, coming from a near-impossible position and having overcome his own pallor to come to a decision Tastiera (Jpn) (Satono Crown {Jpn}) G1 Satsuki Sho (Japan 2000 Guineas) at the testing ground at Nakayama a month and a half ago. Scariest possible, it’s only the third start of his career and there is a good chance there will be improvement, although the Derby and its whole field show that there is little or no there are errors. In the end, his conditioning man believed he was ready for Sunday’s duties.

“I think his performance at Satsuki Sho was very good,” said Takahisa Tezuka. “I had doubts about whether he could play well on heavy ground and how he would do with the inner gate and the big pitch. But he came despite good on all points. During his track, he improved a little bit more in each race and improved much more than before.

“I think 2400 meters is also within reach. I think the space and time will be quick and I think those conditions are right for him. I do not worry. On the contrary, I’m happy to see him racing on fast ground.”

In the opposite corner is the main competitor in the market Surfing (Jpn)who has come a long, difficult road under Christophe Lemaire to defeat a resurgent opponent Concert of Hearts (Jpn) (Heart’s Cry {Jpn}) is half the length in G2 Aoba Sho on this course and distance on April 29. While the duo drew gates 11 and four times ago, respectively, Skilfing left the barrier. number two and Heart’s Concerto from 11 this time around.

“After the Aoba Sho race, I was delighted to see that it did an excellent job in the race and I consider it a very reliable horse,” said his trainer Tetsuya Kimura. “He works well with the driver, listens well and responds well to what the driver asks of him. I think all his experience in Tokyo will help him settle down.

Satono Glanz (Japan) (Satono Diamond {Jpn}) also scored on the Derby trip, after improving from his maidenhood to claim the 1-win condition at Hanshin in March, and he’s gone on three goals. sprint with a tight win at G2 Kyoto Shimbun Two over a mile and three furlongs on May 6. He will have to get past post 18, as Equinox did last year, but with a capable ruler force is Yuga Kawada.

Ghost Thief (Jpn) (Harbinger {GB}) may not have liked the softer underfoot conditions at Satsuki Sho, but still claimed the same third place and could improve on Sunday’s better surface. Further under the radar is Hrimfaxi (Jpn) (Rulership {Jpn}), half brother to Deirdre (Jpn) caste (Harbinger {GB}), a well-supported ninth in Guineas, but buried in the worst part of the road raced for most of the first mile and looked better than he showed at Nakayama.

Dura Erede (Jpn) (Duramente {Jpn}), who beat G1 Hopeful S. last year 89-1, is back on the field after finishing second to Derma Sotogake (Jpn) (Mind Your Biscuits) in the G2 UAE Derby on the road. land at Meydan on March 25.
