Met Weight – Brett Says ‘The Time Is Now’

Gates spring open on Saturday at 17h10

The World Sports Betting Gr1 Cape Town Met will be run at 17h10 on Saturday at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

The big poser this year is whether the 3 year-olds can walk away with the laurels. Why not be snappy and hear it straight from the ‘horse’s mouth’, courtesy of Michele Wing’s Racing News.

Make it Snappy: “If there ever is a time to run with that type of weight of 51,5 kgs on your back, it’s now”, says Brett Crawford.

Jet Dark: “This is the swansong everyone hopes for. Come Met day, you’ll see the best of him”, says Justin Snaith

Kommetdieding: “Can he do it again?”, asks Racing News. “He definitely can”, says Michelle Rix.

Cousin Casey: “I think he’s definitely the horse to beat and I think the biggest opposition will be the filly from Brett Crawford, Make It Snappy”, says Glen Kotzen.

Sparkling Water: “We’ve done a nice gallop with her recently and I’m quite happy and pleased where she is”, says S’Manga Khumalo.

Universal: “He’s kept his condition after that last race, he’s moving well, so from my side it’s been a very smooth preparation”, says Adam Marcus.

Al Muthana: “The horse is at his best right now. Not a bad draw for him as he comes from behind anyway”, says Ricky Maingard.

Rascallion: “He had a long lay-off of about a year, but has come back strong. Unfortunately he’s drawn 17 which is not in his favour”, says Vaughan Marshall.

Golden Ducat: “He didn’t have a good prep going into the King’s Plate. I really hope I’ve got him back again, the great horse that he is, for Saturday”, says Eric Sands.

Marina: “She’s got a good draw this year. We would very happy if we could get a place in the Met”, says Candice Bass-Robinson.

Do It Again: “He loves this. He bucks past my office every morning. Beautiful draw at 8”, says Justin Snaith.

Nexus: “Piere had already committed to Al Muthana, so let’s see how Muzi gets on”, says Justin Snaith.

Linebacker: “He’s better than he was last year, The last 2 weeks he has come on tremendously. He’s drawn 16, so also not in his favour”, says Vaughan Marshall.

Warrior: “As you saw with Al Muthana at 60-1 / 50-1, you never know! Always looking for the upset”, says Justin Snaith.

Zapatillas: “It wouldn’t surprise me to see him make his presence felt”, says Brett Crawford.

Pomp and Power: “From a 19 draw, very hard, he’s going to have a lot of luck in running and a lot of things to go his way”, says Justin Snaith.

Waterberry Lane: “He’s a horse I bought to go to Mauritius, but never got an import permit, so we’re running him in the Met”, says Ricky Maingard.

Rain In Holland: “Nice 70-1 chance. I wouldn’t have picked 15 (draw), but we will deal with it. Don’t leave her out”, says Sean Tarry.

Gem King: “Not an easy race being drawn 18, but I’m hoping for a good run”, says Piet Steyn.
