    Twelve of the runners in under sufferance…

  2. Ronny Naidoo says:

    De Kock quartet – Queen to ween.

  3. Desmond says:

    Soqrat gonna won

  4. Cecil Pienaar says:

    Eish my fancy (and Molley’s) scraped in at 20. Hoping for a draw and Jockey Luke Ferraris….

  5. gavin says:

    what a load of crap.. de kock said soqrat will not run..

  6. INNOCENT says:

    Should be a great spectacle

  7. Rian says:

    But they are running, name them !!!!!!!!!!!!!


    So Mike de Kock says, live on TV, that he will recommend that Soqrat should not participate in the Summer Cup….


    Oh goodness, I see Gavin had viewed that as well,


    …and Mr. Anton Marcus takes the ride despite the legendary trainers opinion about Soqrat participation, the 2000m & the surrounding conditions attached to the Summer Cup.

  11. Nish Mmodley says:

    The stipes should not have allowed Soqrat to run. The horse drifted in the ante post betting to 12/1 after Mike De Kock’s comments & now its fav! Looks like there was inside trading & an investigation needs to be done.


    Here’s the reply : “Angus Gold overruled my opinion”

  13. INNOCENT says:

    I like dawn assualt for an epic upset

  14. Joenie says:

    De Kock stable become famous for scratching horses especially in big races even if the horse is favourite so I won’t be surprised if this horse which is the favourite is scratched before the race.

  15. Joenie says:

    De Kock stable in top form currently. Queen Supreme and Callan Murray in form jockey to pass the post in winning style…

  16. GoBoyGo says:

    Infamous Fox if MJ pilots…..

  17. Clinton says:

    Is Gavin Lerena still contracted to Mauritzfontein . I noticed he is not on cascepedia and also he didn’t ride their mounts today . Or could it be the weights Ed please can you check ?

  18. lucky yende says:

    fying winger (dangerous)

  19. Israel says:

    For the biggest race in Gauteng there is nothing exciting about the final field. Yawn. Yawn.

  20. Gerald says:

    Israel i agree, very moderate field for a event like this. We were all hoping for a spectical in the form off a Hawaam, but nou ja. For now i think Camphoratus gonne have the run off his life, and take the limelight

  21. Rian says:

    Only 8 not under sufferance , according to some Experts

  22. Elton says:

    Can definitely round it down to the top 4 with the best chance in this field

  23. Morgan says:

    Roy to run a place

  24. Theuns says:

    Barahin the one to beat. De kock 1st and second
