Candice Bass-Robinson sends out the Gr2 Selangor Cup shock winner Rocket Countdown who takes on Cape Classic star Tap O’Noth in a race that could finally give some direction to the strength of the current 3yo crop.

Glen Kotzen saddles the only Gr1 winner in the field in Dynasty galloper Eyes Wide Open, while Mike de Kock has an interesting pair in Sir David Baird and Like A Panther, who travel from Johannesburg.

Watch this space for the full big race preview!
