While it’s natural to assume that the champion trainer has a line of form through his other big gun Hawwaam, the real game lies in National Park’s adaptation to the Greyville circuit.

The Cape Guineas winner versus the Gauteng Guineas star, the race has all the ingredients of a great indicator to the balance of the SA Champions Season.

Soqrat has pulled an awful wide draw but comes in fighting fit off his gallant Horse Chestnut Stakes win at end March and as the winner of the Premier’s Champion Stakes over Friday evening’s course and distance last term is the standout to take the honours in what looks a terrific race.

Gauteng Guineas winner National Park has been rested since a marginally disappointing third just over 7 lengths off Hawwaam in the SA Classic last time. He has run well fresh previously.

The race doesn’t end with the top two with Joey Ramsden’s top-class Twist Of Fate pulling a 1 draw and a massive runner with his racing style looking likely to suit this track perfectly. The Cape Classic winner is held by Soqrat on his home Guineas second, but the draw could be something of a leveller.
