Guineas Wide Open After Scratching Of Star

Oh Susanna is out

The scratching of Justin Snaith star filly Oh Susanna has thrown the Gr2 Daisy Guineas wide open.

Her stablemate, Investec Cape Derby runner up Do It Again, also put in an eyecatching gallop at the same session last week and is reportedly thriving – as a lot of Cape horses do – in the holiday province. He is a July entry and this will also be his starting point.

Tap O’Noth – can bouce back this evening

Cape Guineas winner Tap O’Noth galloped a fortnight ago at Greyville and has his first start since failing to show in the Investec Cape Derby. He is a very decent 3yo and without the Derby blot on his copybook, would have probably started favourite here. But the Marshall horse have appeared to need a first run after a break.

Sniper Shot has found form at home since a disappointing Cape campaign. He chased Undercover Agent in the Byerley Turk and looks to hold the likes of White River, who finished 1,25 lengths behind him there. Anton Marcus rides the latter – who caught the eye when shunting through late to be beaten a half length second in a Cape Guineas runner-up finish that cannot be underestimated.

Wonderwall – should enjoy the track

Sean Tarry takes his chances with Gr2 Joburg Spring Challenge winner Wonderwall who is edging back to form again. The son of Querari was a fair fifth in the Cape Guineas and looks the type that could enjoy the Greyville circuit from the 2 draw.

Premier Show steps up in class to the mile for the first time and has consistent sprinting form.  The family has mostly sprinted and he is an interesting runner.

Kazaar was well beaten in the Byerley Turk and his biggest plus on paper will be jockey Richard Fourie.

Johan Janse van Vuuren brings the highly regarded Oratorio colt Mardi Gras to Durban. The grey is untested at feature level but has won 2 of his 4 starts impressively and could be the dark horse here.

Tap O’Noth is a Gr1 winner. Do It Again is progressive.White River is no slouch. A small field, but go wide!
