Here it was the ever consistent second placed, Gimmeanotherchance, who was used to rate this race and as such, his rating remains unchanged on 111.

Third place finisher, Red Bomber, was also increased from 104 to 109 after finishing 1.20 lengths (2 points) behind the line horse at level weights.

Fourth placed, Snow Pilot finished 1.5 lengths (3 points) behind the 111 rated line horse Gimmeanotherchance while conceding 6 kilograms (12 points) in weight to that rival. This makes him run to a mark of 120 and he was adjusted accordingly.

Winter Games was the sole runner in this race to receive a drop in ratings and goes down to 98 from 101.

  • Umzimkhulu Stakes (Grade 3)

Double Grand Slam has seen her rating increased from 117 to 118 after impressively winning the Grade 3 Umzimkhulu Stakes over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Sunday.

The Handicappers were of the view that second placed Mia Moo made for the most suitable line horse and her rating remains unchanged on 103.

Minogue, who finished fourth and 0.55 of a length behind the line horse was also increased to 102 from 96.

Fifth place finisher, Sovereign Grant had her rating increased to 98 from 90 in order to ensure that she is at least 1 point higher than the 97 rated Bomber Girl, whom she beat at level weights here.

Lastly, Le Premiere was increased from 81 to 86 to make her equal to last placed Mauritania who she beat here on level weight terms in this contest.
