One very likely candidate is recent Gr2 Premier Trophy winner, Head Honcho.

His trainer Andre Nel is on record saying that he was annoyed that his charge couldn’t get into the 2018 Vodacom Durban July after his Listed Sledgehammer win.

But he is likely to make the Met cut and Nel says that Keagan de Melo will retain the ride.
