Do It Again Tops Met Ante-Post Market

De Kock has one possible representative

L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winner Do It Again firmed to 11-10, while Legal Eagle is on offer at 20-1 with Hollywood for the Gr1 Sun Met after Saturday’s thrilling racing at Kenilworth.

Tabnews report that trainer Mike de Kock withdrew five of his six Sun Met entries when supplementary entries closed and weights for the famous race were announced on Monday.

Noble Secret is the lone De Kock horse still standing for the R5-million contest to be run at Kenilworth on 26 January.

Justin Snaith, in contrast, accepted for his L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate day heroes Do It Again and Oh Susanna – who claimed the two Grade 1 title on offer at the weekend.

Snaith has also accepted with Made To Conquer, second to Do It Again in last year’s Durban July. But the champion trainer has yet to make up his mind on his other entries – Saturday’s Peninsula Handicap winner Doublemint, Elusive Silva, and Platinum Prince.

Multiple Equus Horse of the Year Legal Eagle is among nine older horses allocated top weight of 60kg under the weight-for-age conditions.

Do It Again, whose merit rating was upped to 125 following his Queen’s Plate triumph, will carry 59.5kg – along with other four-year-old males.

A total of 22 horses remain in contention for final line-up, with a maximum of 20 runners permitted.

De Kock’s scratching were: Buffalo Bill Cody, Cascapedia, Like A Panther, Takingthepeace and Hawwaam.
