Vodacom Durban July winner Legislate will take on recent Sansui Summer Cup winner Louis The King in a classic North versus South clash that is bound to prove the highlight of the 154th renewal of the R1 million Gr1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate that will be run on Saturday 10 January at Kenilworth.

South Africa’s premier weight-for-age mile contest has been won by some of the greatest horses to grace the turf in this country and was recently ranked amongst the top five races in the world.

Legislate – champion in the making

Justin Snaith’s Legislate recently returned from a four month break following his sensational July win to hack up in the Gr2 Green Point Stakes and with homeground advantage, he will have plenty of support.

Louis The King will be ridden by champion jockey Piere Strydom who rode a brilliant race on him to get up in the last stride to deny his stable companion Killua Castle in the Sansui Summer Cup at the end of November.

Brett Crawford’s Champions Cup winner Futura heads the balance of the nine horse field, that sees Joey Ramsden taking his chance with 3yo Kingvoldt, a recent placer in the Cape Guineas.

The final field:

1 2 Legislate 60 117 A R Fourie Justin Snaith
2 4 Louis The King 60 116 A P Strydom Geoff Woodruff
3 9 Futura 60 113 A B Fayd’Herbe Brett Crawford
4 7 Tellina 60 110 A G Lerena Geoff Woodruff
5 3 Jet Explorer 60 109 A S Cormack Justin Snaith
