Quality Runs Deep In Crystal Mile Nominations 2011

The 2011 Crystal Mile nominations show trainers certainly have a keen interest in the 1600m Group 2 event at Moonee Valley this Saturday.

All up there are 24 names on the current Crystal Mile nominations list battling it out for a spot in the 15 horse field.

Obviously plenty of them are going to miss out but on the current look of things we’re on track for a full field this Saturday.

One horse that connections will be hoping doesn’t run is Avienus.

The 105 rater is still in the running for a start in the 2011 Cox Plate although at the moment the odds look stacked against it.

In fact there are a number of horses nominated for both the crystal mile as well as the premiere weight for age event.

Blackie, Fast Clip, Luen Yat Forever and Torio’s Quest all fit that bill and we’ll have to wait until the final field announcement to see exactly where they all end up.

One thing we can count on though is that not all of them will run in the Group 1 leaving the Crystal mile with a heap of talent.

That means that for a horse to win this race it’s going to need to be right on top of its game and well and truly run out the full mile distance.

There are plenty of other horses worth noting littered throughout the nominations.

Dao Dao, La Rocket, Little Surfer Girl, More Strawberries, Red Tracer, Triple Elegance and Testa My Patience all combine to make the 2011 Crystal Mile one of the toughest ever.

If you fancy a punt on the race it could be tough but at least guarantee yourself one thing and get the best odds with Luxbet.
