Tuesday’s R5 Million Pick 6 Target

Mike de Kock looks set for a decent day / night!

A R1 million carryover could see Turffontein’s Tuesday Pick 6 pool soaring beyond R5 million.

Trainer Mike de Kock looks to have a strong hand in the World Sports Betting Gauteng Guineas and the Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas, both races run over the 1600m on the standside track.

These Grade 2 races form the respective first legs of the Triple Crown and Triple Tiara for fillies. The other legs of the Triple Crown are the Gr1 SA Classic over 1800m and Gr1 SA Derby over 2450m with the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic and Gr2 SA Oaks forming the remaining legs of the Tiara.

There is R2-million bonus for winning all three legs of the WSB SA Triple Crown and a R1-million bonus for the same feat in the Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara. The Cape Guineas and Cape Fillies Guineas, both already run, are alternate first legs for the Triple Crown and Tiara.

Consequently, we could see WSB Cape Town Met fourth-placed Double Superlative and Chansonette, a close second to Captain’s Ransom in two Grade 1 fillies’ features at Kenilworth, on the Highveld for the remaining legs.

Last year there was a unique outcome with De Kock-trained Malmoos winning the Triple Crown while Paul Matchett’s charge War Of Athena captured the Triple Tiara.

De Kock has Dingaans winner Safe Passage and third-placed Aragosta in the Gauteng Guineas, but they face a far stronger line-up this time against the likes of William Robertson, the Mike and Adam Azzie-trained Supreme Warrior and the Johan Janse van Vuuren-trained pair of Outofthedarkness and Prince Of Fire.

The Fillies Guineas looks to be at the mercy of De Kock with top-class Desert Miracle who is backed up by talented Bold Act and Clafoutis.

Desert Miracle, who has thrashed most of her rivals before, is likely to be a popular banker in the carryover Pick 6
