R1 Million Jackpot Pool Likely As Lion Rampart Set For Somerset 1200

Jackpot first leg at 13h50

Hollywoodbets Kenilworth plays host to a ten-race programme this afternoon.

There are two feature races including the Listed Somerset 1200 and the Non-Black Type Winter Sprint. There is a R250 000 carryover for Jackpot 1 with a likely pool of R1 million.

The first race is due off at 11h40, and a reminder of the R250 000 jackpot carryover, with a pool of R1 million projected.

Lion Rampart from the Vaughan Marshall stable takes his place in the Listed Somerset 1200. He has good form lines to his credit.

He cost himself winning the Gr3 Winter Nursery last time as he hung inwards throughout. The son of One World is the class horse in this race and if keeping on a straight line, he should find himself in the winner’s enclosure.

Trainer Vaughan Marshall also saddles Silver Crown in Race 9.

He finished 0.3 lengths behind Gimmelightning last time. He is 1kg better off at the weights today and that should be enough for the tables to be turned.

The son of Canford Cliffs is in a good space and can return to winning ways.
