Hoedspruit For Hat Trick

The Pick 6 starts in the fourth at 14h25

An exciting nine-race programme is set for Kenilworth this afternoon.

There are five feature races on the card including the Gr1 Cape Guineas, Gr2 Peninsula Handicap, Gr3 Victress Stakes, Listed Southeaster Sprint and the Non-Black Type Need For Speed Sprint.

The first is due off at 12h35.

Jimmy The Rich writes that Hoedspruit from the Justin Snaith stable takes his place in the Grade 2 Peninsula Handicap and he is the best bet on the card.

He was an impressive winner in the Listed Nelson Mandela Bay Racing Algoa Cup over 2000m at Fairview.

He lost a length at the start that day, but quickened up well and drew clear of the opposition.

The classy son of Legislate is in a good space and should complete the hat-trick.

Vaughan Marshall saddles Silver Operator in Race 8 and he represents decent each way value.

He is much better than his last start in the Non-Black Type #ThisIsRacing Cape Mile.

It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since.

He is unbeaten from three starts over this course and distance and he should keep that record intact under Craig Zackey.
