Clash Of The Season Looms

R1 million Gr1 Cape Premier Yearling Sales Guineas looks a cracker

Repeat? King Of Pain is seen beating Capetown Noir in the Selangor

A truly representative field of twelve top-class 3yo’s goes to post for the R1 million Cape Premier Yearling Sales Guineas to be run at Kenilworth on Saturday 22 December.

Joey Ramsden’s Cape champion juvenile of last season, King Of Pain, renews his Selangor Cup rivalry with Dean Kannemeyer’s Capetown Noir. Ramsden’s grey son of Greys Inn is up 1-0 after sneaking down the rail to hold the flying Kannemeyer Western Winter in the Selangor a fortnight ago.

The two are drawn right alongside each other, in what could be the clash of the season.

Sean Tarry brings Dingaans winner The Hangman down to frank or fry the Guateng 3yo form.

KZN Guineas Trial winner Love Struck got a free entry into this event courtesy of his win there, and together with Cape Classic winner Chave De Oura , makes up the KZN challenge.

Paul Lafferty’s son of Kahal has drawn 1, and Anton Marcus jumps off him in favour of partnering Black Toga, no doubt due to his commitment as the Jooste’s retained rider.

Our full preview of the race will follow.
