Snaith – ‘We Could See Guineas Winner Today’

The Snaith Racing viewpoint

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.

Exciting Speed Machine – one to be with (Pic -Chase Liebenberg)

  • 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.

  1. Teddy Naidoo says:

    Speed Machine did not give the kick that he gave in his last run.From last to first in a matter of seconds.Never did he raise a sweat.Today he was battling to quicken.

  2. Tony Mincione says:

    Mr T Naidoo makes an observation about Speed Machine. It’s valid, anyone would agree.

    The handicappers though, had two runners rated 100 in the Cape Classic, 3rd placed Rascallion and 4th placed Speed Machine.

    The 4th horse was 4.5 L behind the 3rd, some 8 L behind the winner. Is the 4th horse really the line horse in this race, aka the horse that ran to it’s full rating?

  3. M(artin)Gram(atica) says:

    @Tony Mincione we should be grateful that the line horse chosen was so close up. Superstars have been declared using a line horse 18 lengths back, and then further “dumbed” down another 4 lengths just to stay real!
