Met Knives Drawn!

Ladies Day? The only female in the race, Beach Beauty drew 11

Ladies Day? The only female in the race, Beach Beauty drew 11

The draw for the Gr1 R2,5  million J&B Met to be run at Kenilworth on Saturday 2 February was done at a function held after the official gallops this morning at the racecourse.

The race looks to have been thrown even wider open, with favourite Jackson drawn at 5 and his rival Pomodoro at 8 – a barrier described by Sean Tarry as ‘perfect.’

Gavin Van Zyl’s SA Classic winner Slumdogmillionaire secured the paint with a 1 draw, and he is expected to improve even further after an excellent L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate effort.

International commentator David Rafael represented the connections of the  luckless Justin Snaith-trained Run For It, who drew widest at 16.

Cape champion trainer Joey Ramsden was pleased with Bravura’s draw of 6 , and philosophically said that the only 3yo King Of Pain’s 13 ‘could have been worse.’
