Dean Diedericks – wet, wet, wet on the winter course today – but we go ahead

With winter rains having hit Cape Town over the past five days and continuing to fall today, the prospects of today’s Kenilworth meeting looked to be in the balance.

However, following a track inspection a half hour ago, Track Manager Dean Diedericks has indicated that the jockeys and officials are in agreement that the track is raceable as it stands.

“We had 11mm of rain this morning and more rain is forecast. But the track is fine and the meeting goes ahead as scheduled. The wind is swinging around all the time and there is little problem with visibility as we speak,” said Diedericks.

The bipot starts in race 1 at 12h55.
