keys to the lion city for lim's lightning

meeting preview for sun aug 14, 2022

Best horse wins.

It's a simple strategy for weight-age-races and Lim's Lightning is the best horse in the Lion City Cup.

His rating of 113 is 7 (or 3.5kgs) better then his closest rival - Grand Koonta on 106 and a whopping 41 points (20.5kgs) better than Golden Monkey.

So at equal weights... you do the math.

Lim's Lightning won the race last year too - from gate 13 - so from gate 1.... he gets every chance to back-to-back.

His recent trials have been very good - as you would expect - so again, who beats him?

We made a case for his stablemate, Lim's Kosciuszko, while Grand Koonta is a veteran of this race (he started fave last year and placed) and won last start.

Add the bang-in-form King Arthur who wins for fun and Golden Monkey who would have been a serious contender with a weight pull as a three-year-old but at equal weights with the big boys.... tough.

Can't see many others having an impact in the top three but you know racing.

Good luck and see you in the forum!
