One World Goes For Hat-Trick – In The Wet

Tricky Pick 6 opener

Joey Ramsden – master of the 2yo ranks

Joey Ramsden aims for his tenth Langerman win at a wet Kenilworth today when he saddles three of the thirteen runners in the R200 000 Listed 2yo feature.

The recent R6 million debut winner Charles makes for an interesting runner in the contest.

Flashback to the Langerman  2016- Table Bay wins for Ramsden

Brett Crawford’s Charles made a winning debut over the Kenilworth 1200m last month on trying underfoot conditions. He will prefer the extra 300m here and the son of Trippi gets an opportunity from a decent draw to show how good he is. He takes on opponents with experience of the turn, so this will be a test.

Vaughan Marshall will be looking to secure a double after winning the Langerman in 2017 with subsequent Cape Guineas winner Tap O’Noth.

Top O’Noth – won for Marshall in 2017

He saddles the undefeated One World (yet another son of Captain Al), already earmarked as a classic prospect, who has won his first two races. One World carries top weight but has the advantage of having raced round the turn and showed fight when beating Carnage last time out.

Mr Crumford beat Frank Lloyd Wright when winning his maiden and stayed on without threatening in the Nursery when third and over 4 lengths in arrears.

Frank Lloyd Wright enjoys a 2kg swing at the weights for that maiden defeat and has run three seconds from four starts without a win. He ran on steadily over 1400m last time and should be thereabouts again.

Ramsden’s Temp The Tiger won readily on debut but has not quite followed through on that. We prefer the yard’s less exposed R1,7 million buy Montego Bay, who ran a fair third in open company after beating Seventh Sea in his maiden.

The experienced Lucky Dancer makes  up the Goodhope Racing trio and  looks held by Mr Crumford and Watch Me Dad on the Nursery form.

Sacred Arrow ran third 3,70 lengths behind One Direction at his post-maiden run. He is2kgs better off here.

Mr Green Street should improve further over the extra after putting it all together at his third start to beat More Magic easily.

Peter Wrensch saddles Watch Me Dad

Watch Me Dad beat Frozen Tune to win his maiden and then looked dangerous down the rail before being beaten 6 lengths by the highly regarded Clouds Unfold in the Nursery.

All The Sevens is still a maiden and was beaten 1,25 lengths by Charles earlier this month.

The same tag applies to Black Indy, who ran a fair second when beaten by stablemate Captainofthesea last time out over the Kenilworth 1400m. He has shown a liking for the trip and should relish the extra.

One World and Montego Bay look the right two – with Mr Crumford and the consistent Frank Lloyd Wright the obvious dangers.
