Justin Snaith has kindly provided his runner comments for his horses competing at Kenilworth today to the Sporting Post. He says that the Cape Classic is a Gr1 race and we could see the Cape Guineas winner put his hand up!
The race number is indicated after the horse name.
- Elamore (1):
Needs to improve on recent form.
- In Your Time (1):
Will run to her best form with an each way shout but the Drakenstein Stud duo of Queen Niyabah and Wild Creature look hard to oppose.
- Petronella (1):
Will improve but fierce opposition.
- Divergent (2):
Great debut and hoping for a similar effort.
- Mach Four (2):
Will go very close but has Legitimate to beat.
- Troy Twentytwo (2):
Not expecting anything on debut – will be very green first time up.
- Double Blue (5):
Improving all the while and will run well despite first run out the maidens. Watch over ten furlongs.
- *The Gatekeeper (5):*
Full brother to Legislate and looking for this trip. Will take some beating.
- Hyde Park (6):
Doing great at home and could surprise. Smart sort with plenty ability. Do not ignore this horse.
- Jet Dark (6):
Done nothing wrong to date but has a wide draw to contend with. Hasn’t put a foot wrong to date and must be included in exotics.
- Speed Machine (6):
This colt has impressed tremendously in his last few starts. Rascallion looks his biggest danger along with stable mates. This is a Gr1 field and whoever wins this could be the Guineas winner.
- *Dazzling Sun (7):*
She has a wide draw but oozes class. Possible banker if she gets into her full stride. The Drakenstein filly, Marmalisa, at 10-1 looks the likely danger.
- Major Attraction (7):
Big jump in class and a little green still. She’s a big filly who is still finding her feet but has plenty ability. Follow this one!
- Trickster (7):
Doing great at home and will be good each way value. Could upset.
- Veronica Mars (7):
Hasn’t put a foot wrong to date and with some luck from the wide gate she will be flying home.
- *Pinkerton (8):*
Goes for 3 on the trot and should go well again. He’s the one to beat.
- One Way Traffic (9):
Utterly green on debut when nothing went his way. Expect huge improvement. Include.
- Savannah Buddy (9):
Good previous run. Hoping for a similar effort in a tough field.
- Themadirishsheriff (9):
Needs more ground but should run a reasonable race.
