One World At 25-1 For L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate

Rainbow Bridge is marginal favourite

Hollywood have priced up ante-post on the R1 million Gr1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate to be run at Kenilworth on 5 January 2019.

While Rainbow Bridge is a marginal favourite ahead of Legal Eagle who beat him in the Green Point Stakes recently, it is interesting to see the impact of Saturday’s Cape Guineas outcome with winner Soqrat priced at 8-1, while original Guineas favourite One World, who ran third on Saturday is all of 25-1.

The Queen’s Plate entry date was extended to 11h00 today and after Buffalo Bill Cody’s impressive victory at Turffontein on Monday – his fifth win from 6 stats – he is another who will have his supporters in the prestigious mile on 5 January and the Sun Met three weeks later.

Declarations are due by 11h00 on Thursday 20 December.

  1. Beach Boy says:

    surely Do It Again will be a huge runner in the LQL? In the Green Point, he was coming off a lengthy break while Rainbow Bridge was having his third run of the season and would have been much fitter. Notwithstanding that Rainbow Bridge did not settle, the more impressive performance for me was Do It Again and I think he could do the LQL – Met double.

  2. Dave Russell says:

    Not sure that Do It Again will be primed for the Queens Plate. Strongly suspect his prime mission is the Met whereas Legal Eagle’s mission is the Queens Plate.

  3. Beach Boy says:

    but Do It Again was even less primed for the Green Point than he will be for the LQP. While I agree that Met will be his main target, I think he can win the LQP on the basis of his very close finish in the Green Point. He seems to have improved as a four year old (even if only on the evidence of the one run). And there will be more pace in the LQP than there was in the Green Point, which will suit him (and Rainbow Bridge); de Kock’s entry of Mujallad seems to indicate that he will put in a pacemaker for Soqrat and Buffalo Bill Cody, which won’t help Legal Eagle and Undercover Agent. I believe that it’s finally time for the Legal to shed his unbeaten tag over a mile, although, for sentimental reasons, most of us would like him to win again.
