  1. I also felt initially that Anton possibly erred in coming off the rail resulting in
    Hawaam overracing. At the start with Hawaam slightly slower off the mark ,Anton had no choice but to shake him up otherwise he would have ended up 5 tp 6 lengths back with not much pace on! He still was not quite settled from what I could make out though after this but from this Go Pro video you can see that Hawaam seems to shift out on his own accord at about the 1250m with Anton then electing to stay there which any top jock would have done too!.
    This possibly was the reason for Hawaam being unsettled throughout the race.
    Vardy was a deserved winner in the end though, well done to Adam and his team!

    Punters need more of those. Really great!!!

  3. Michael Jacobs says:

    Well done and thanks. Very useful footage. Also, Aldo sat behind Hawwaam so we can clearly see what took place. Doesn’t look as if Marcus did a hell of a lot wrong, he pretty much held the rail through to the bend, and only after that did it start to gi pear-shaoed.

  4. Brian says:

    Glenn, thank you so much for that insight, really great!

    Mr Hatt, we miss you in the saddle.
    Tough job riding these tightly tuned athletes. Anton is a hero and we wish him well for his next Gr1 ride.
    Hawaam was always going to be a tough ride over this mile and will be more effective over a bit further.
    I would still like to see Warren on Hawaam.

  6. Sound says:

    I think the distance here wasn’t the right one for Hawaam as far as I remember he was betean on the same distance before but the met distance I’ll put my money for a win on him and I wouldn’t care any other horses on race.


    Did anyboby notice what a striking head and snout Erik the Red has ?

    I’m mixing fresh lime and lemon with my grappa

    Hawwaam & Soqrat slaves…who won the Queens Plate Saturday past ?

    Thank you Glen Hatt… For your comment, more people need to think about writing an opinion that comes from riding a chair at the punters table.

    Glen, we like to hear more from a top ex professional rider.among the best horsemen this country has seen.we value your opinion.Need guys like you in the tipping studio.Not those like Paul Lafferty, Kevin Shea and Warren Lenferna.They only tip the top 3 favourites in the betting.Julie Alexander should monitor tipsters performance and replace with good professionals like Glen Hatt.

    Hawaam had a off day and will bounce back. How good a horse is he? Only time will tell. Let us not allow the distance he was beaten at, great horses win ANY distance. Over the Air won the July and came back to the Cape and won the Diadem over 1200m, Elevation won the Dick King over 2000m then went back to Joburg and won the Joseph Dorfman over 1000m, the very very great Sea Cottage won the Merchants at Greyville so distance must not be used as a excuse for defeat.

  11. Peter Dembitzer says:

    On studying form I noticed that Hawaam had beaten Twist of Fate(25/1 on the day) and Bunker Hunt. To me not the sort of form to win the race, but the delay certainly didn’t help. Saying that I think that Vardy will have his measure for a long, long time to come.

  12. Mux says:

    I miss delpech he was jockey to rely on

  13. Brian says:

    Brian uk punter race should have been cancelled the 25 minutes delay was farcical the social event was bigger than one of the most important races in SA 3 out of 4 horses of the top horses Hawaam,Do it again and Soqrat.were beaten by a 15/2, 16/1, 12/1 and amazingly by a Twist of Fate 55/1 no were in the world would that happen feel for the anti post supporters of the favourite again and again
