De Kock Arrives With Kitchen Sink

Unbeaten Majestic Mambo may take his place

 Mike de Kock’s Gr1 winning 2yo of last term Mustaaqeem drew the outside barrier gate of the 23 entries received on Monday for the R1 million Gr2 Gauteng Guineas to be run at Turffontein on Saturday 3 March.

Mustaaqeem was beaten into fourth on his return run last Thursday

De Kock has a powerhouse 8 entries in the first leg of the SA Triple Crown, which also includes KZN challengers Monks Hood and the Frank Robinson-trained Roy Had Enough.

Exciting Majestic Mambo is unbeaten in three starts

An interesting potential runner is Paul Peter star Majestic Mambo, who is unbeaten in three starts and steps up after winning the winning the Listed Sea Cottage Stakes at his last start.

The R7-million SA Triple Crown for 3-year-olds is the richest series of races in Africa.

The Triple Crown comprises the R1-million Gr1 Cape Guineas. Tap O’Noth, who won the Guineas is not amongst the entries listed.

The Gauteng Guineas is the alternate first leg, with the R2-million Gr1 SA Classic run over 1800m on Saturday 7 April the second leg.

The third leg is the R2-million Gr1 SA Derby run over 2450m at Turffontein on Saturday 5 May 2018.

A bonus of R2 million will be paid to the owner of the horse that wins all three legs of the Triple Crown.

    Monks Hood to pip Majestic Mambo for the Guineas, nice price on Hollywood bets of around 7/1 on offer for Monks Hood…………..a place bet for about 12/10 for Monks Hood is a steal also on Hollywood bets………….Hashtagyolo is about 3/1 and if Strydom can overcome the draw it’s no race………….
