Giant Slayer Well Supported for Saturday
Kisukano, the only juvenile that's managed to defeat Gr1 JJ Atkins hero Rothfire in his eight starts to date, has been well supported to win Saturday's opening event at the Sunshine Coast even though she's conceding between 3 – 5.5kg to all her rivals. After opening at $3, the daughter of Bel Esprit has been backed into $2.60 for her first start since hauling in the $1.20 star 2YO during the $500,000 QTIS Jewel at the Gold Coast. After bolting in by 7.5 lengths on debut at Toowoomba (1050m) and trotting up by 4.3-lengths in her penultimate run at Doomben (1000m), Kisukano is expected to be a cut above quality Nothern Queensland gelding Aspen Lad plus other hopefuls Mishani Fraudster, Bad Barista and Fleet Dove – all between $6 - $8 quotes.
