Gavin Lerena, who won the race in 2015 in the same silks on Bouclette Top, returns to ride topweighted Buffalo Bill Cody, one of a quartet of runners from the Mike de Kock yard in the field of sixteen, plus three reserves.

SA Champion trainer Sean Tarry also has four runners, with 2018 Summer Cup champion Tilbury Fort heading his quartet, that includes exciting 4yo Zillzaal – the latter the mount of Piere Strydom and an impressive winner of his only start this term.

Tarry will also field the third reserve runner, Tierra Del Fuego.

The barrier draws and charity pairings with the individual runners will be done at a a private function at Emperors Palace at 10h30 on Wednesday and will be made public around lunch-time.

    The Board of Directors of the Sporting Post Bloggers Pick 6 Conglomerate would like to take this opportunity to issue a cautionary warning to the rest of the nation :

    The syndicate have passed a resolution whereby we will seek to capture the Pick 6 pool on Charity Mile Day.

    1. Editor says:

      Sounds ominous William
      Any outsider trading in prospect – like a 33-1 shot in the first leg?


    Mr.Editor, at this very early stage I’m hoping for 13 – IN THE DANCE in the Charity Mile.

    Secondly, I pray we don’t go out in the first leg 🤣🤣

  3. Stephen Carter says:

    The syndicate is ready to strike.


    Yes Mr. Carter, we need some magic from You
