Glispie's 'Fury' to be unleashed
FIZROY Glispie's ANOTHER FURY has impressed at exercise and looks set to land tomorrow's eighth event despite returning off a two-and-a-half month layup.
The three-year-old filly ran disappointingly when last raced, January 30, finishing 17 lengths down the track behind NUCLEAR AFFAIR at 1500 metres.
Though not expected to beat classic contender NUCLEAR AFFAIR, ANOTHER FURY was understandably well backed at odds of 3-1 following two good runs as a two-year-old particularly December's seventh-place finish in the Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes among colts and geldings.
In her previous race, November 28, ANOTHER FURY was an impressive five-and-a-half length winner over OCEAN SEEKER and GOLDEN GLORY at 1300 metres, clocking 1:20.1
Though not the best drawn at postposition one among a dozen non-winners-of-two at 1000 metres round tomorrow, ANOTHER FURY's mid-race pace should make it impossible for any of her rivals to slip her down the backstretch.
ANOTHER FURY's run in the Boxing Day Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes, drawn at postposition 13 in the big 15-horse field, suggested she has some class about her.
She raced prominently from the start and was well placed in fourth after the first half mile, only three lengths off cracking splits. She turned for home fifth and still held that position a furlong out before being relegated to seventh.
After that effort, much was expected of her as a three-year-old in January but, fitted with blinkers for the first time, she ran contrary to expectations.
Glispie gave her some time off and has noticeably removed the blinkers for her return. After taking it easy throughout March and earlier this month, he cranked her up at exercise on Monday to which she responded by clocking 1:00.4, beating stablemate TIMEFORARMS in a five-furlong spin.
LIKE A LADY will try making all in a bid to score back-to-back victories but should have MISS MYRTLE, GARY GLITTER and LITTLE BIG HORN for company, setting it up for ANOTHER FURY to pounce coming off the turn.
