The John O’Brien trained filly Pauseforacoors will be a shortpriced favourite to win tomorrow’s feature event and land a beaver-trick of victories in the process.

Pauseforacoors goes to post in the 1,100 metres Handicap for Three-Year-Olds and over Horses rated 70 and over on the main track at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.

Kerron Khelawan will now have the leg up on the filly which will carry top-weight of 57 kilos.

She will have to be at her best to turn back stablemates, Desert dancer and Rocket Wheels both of whom will tote 49 and 47.5 kilos respectively.

Desert Dancer will be ridden by the in-form Brian Boodramsingh and could upset the favourite. Ronald Ali will be aboard the John Leotaud trained Rocket Wheels and this horse must have an outstanding chance at the weights.

There will be eight races on the Arima Race Club during the Day-25 presentation with the first event expected to be run off at 1:05 pm.

Here are the declared runners, riders and weight for Saturday’s eight-race card.
