Four ranked stake winners in Hanshin for minors

A pitcher of 18 people, including 4 graded winners, one of them undefeated, was held for the Hanshin Juvenile Fillies (G1) Competition on December 11 at Hanshin Racecourse.

The undefeated member of the quartet, Water Navillera, a daughter of Silver status, won the KBS Kyoto Sho Fantasy Stakes (G3) over the Hanshin track going 1,400 meters (about 7 furlongs). She also won the junior track 1,600 meters.

Her ascension to the highest level may not have been predicted by her pedigree.

Silver State freshman boy, by Deep impact , has four wins and a second win from five starts. But the wins all come in small career events that include a gap of 19 months for all of 2016. Navillera’s Dam, Shining Sayaka , spent most of his career racing on dirt roads, often at Japan’s regional racetracks.

Life cycle, one Epiphaneia dubious, went to Juvenile Fillies with a 2 to 3 record and won the Artemis Stakes (G3) at Tokyo Racecourse.

Namura Nycoris and Namura Clair are both bred and owned by Mutsohiro Namura and have two wins each.

Namura Clair, by Mikki Island, won Kokura Nisai Stakes (G3) on September 5 while Namura Nycoris, by Jo Cappuccino, has been off the track since winning the July 17 Hakodate Nisai Stakes (G3).

All of the connections said their positions had questions to answer despite their initial achievements.

Water Navillera’s coach, Koshiro Take, said his bad temper thrived as her year progressed.

Take said: ‘She’s working a lot more at the beginning, but she hasn’t lost weight yet. “That’s her strong point and she’s also a lot more muscular than in the summer. She’s had a bit of a break and things have gone more smoothly since her return.”

However, Take added, “She tends to get agitated when she’s out on the track but before going to the gate and having some other things to worry about. But once she’s racing, she’ll do fine. “

Circle of Life moderator, Sakae Kunieda, said she “did a good break in the Artemis Stakes and went with the flow, then in this segment showed some very responsive footwork. Her win. Before Nakayama breaking her maidenhood wasn’t very interesting, but it’s good, she won orthodox here.

Kunieda said: “I think the distance she reached will be longer in the future but she won her last start on a mile and the distance was right for her.

Circle of Life starts at gate 10 under Mirco Demuro.

Namura Clair and Namura Lycoris drew doors 1 and 2.

Namura Clair was idle for two months after her Kokura win, then finished second behind Water Navillera in Fantasy Stakes and coach Kodai Hasegawa blamed that on the long time between races.

“I’ve never worried about that before,” Hasegawa said. “She lost the race but she had a little bit of flair in the first half and I think that was a factor. Her last race allowed her to take a breather and I think the short interval between the races. This race is a good thing.”

Both of Namura Lycoris’ victories came at Hakodate Racecourse after their first match in Sapporo. Assistant coach Masahiro Maruta admitted that after the Sapporo race, “she looked like she could run well but winning a qualifying race was better than we imagined she could do.”

Hanshin Juvenile Fillies runs right-handed on the grass outside. The course dropped about 2 meters from the 600 to 200 mark, then rose again when it reached the finish line.
