While it’s no Met day extravaganza, Kenilworth is now the national stand-alone meeting today after Turffontein was rescheduled earlier.
An eight race card is programmed with the first due off at 13h20. The first is the Bipot opener.
The track conditions are recorded as good, with the pen listed as 21 on the straight and 22 on the turn.
The false rail is 2m out from the 1800m , with a 4m spur at the 600m mark.
There are some well-bred first-timers having their first run.
