Jimmy The Rich writes that Sound Of Summer from the in-form Paul Peter stable takes his place in Race 3.

He showed good guts and determination when winning his last start over 1450m on the Inside course.

He was fitted with the blinkers for the first time, which did the trick.

The son of Silvano is unbeaten from two starts over this course and distance. He jumps from a good draw of three and can notch up his sixth career victory.

She quickened up well when winning the Grade 3 Yellowwood Handicap last time. She has won once, finished second once and third once from as many starts over this distance.

The daughter of Flower Alley faces her toughest test to date, but she has class and should be up to the task at hand.

The Gr1 Gauteng Summer Cup presented by World Sports Betting is an exciting race and the fairer sex can win again.

War Of Athena was super-impressive when winning her seasonal debut over 1400m on this course. The manner in which she quickened up and drew away from the opposition caught the eye.

She has won eight times, finished second once and third twice from twelve starts on this course.

The daughter of Act Of War takes on the males for the first time, but she is classy and can notch up her eleventh career victory.
