Justin Snaith’s runner comments for the R1 250 000 De Grendel Cape Thoroughbred Sales Cup raceday at the newly revamped Kenilworth Racecourse today.
- En Garde (1)
- *Kayc Al (1):
* Ignore latest. If stays the trip she will be the one to beat. Good value.
- Viridian Light (2):
Fair form and will be in the money again. Good value.
- Dark Crystal (3):
A little inconsistent but has each way claims.
- Spirit Festival (3):
A little out of form but has upset potential.
- Carlo Collodi (4):
Very tough feature for him and will need to run his very best race to feature.
- Gimme Aces (4):
Didn’t corner in latest and hoping for an improved effort but ultra competitive race.
- *Tarantino (5):*
Excellent and solid form. Great each way value at 8-1.
- Hoedspruit (6):
At his best and flying back home. Has a wide draw to overcome but could upset with some luck in the running. Don’t ignore in exotics.
- The Gatekeeper (6)
- Captain Tatters (7):
Stable very strong in this sprint feature. This son of Gimmethegreenlight must be included.
- Erik The Red (7):
Smart sort and unbeaten over this course and distance. Carries little weight and will give a good account of himself under Richard Fourie. Always in the money.
- Rio Querari (7):
Very well weighted and will have a good each way shout. Expect a strong effort from this horse.
- *Phil’s Dancer (8):
* Extremely tough race but also carries no weight and is super constant. Upset potential. Go each way.
- Silvano’s Pride (8):
Prep run for the Gr1 fillies features this season.
- Destin (9):
Doing great back home and will produce a top effort. Good each way value to end off the day.
- Jailhouse Rock (9)
The Songo BMX challenge will take place in the parade ring directly after the last race.
