CANTCHACO has won almost 30 races and boasts a cracking strike-rate, and time certainly doesn't appear to be catching up with Jaqueline Smith's seven-year-old just yet judging by his performances in better company this campaign. Boldly True and Mykx Bull are both on hat-tricks, with Hashtag Bae and Snowball's Chance also respected.
