Listed – 1000m – Turf

1 Cruise Control Eastern Cape raider Gavin Smith can score a rare Kenilworth victory with this Querari colt who made racing look easy on debut over 800m. Smith has his yard in top nick and is fourth on the trainers’ championship log.
2 Street Outlaw This colt just kept finding more when asked on debut to turn a two-length deficit into a 0.75-length victory over the last 400m. He should have more to offer and has a definite winning chance.
3 Certainly She certainly does have a chance despite coming off a break after her maiden win on debut and taking on some fast boys now. Showed determination in her solitary run, with that form line now proven.
4 Pacific Green A highly rated filly trained by current champion trainer Justin Snaith. Her maiden win was over this course and distance under S’manga Khumalo, who retains the ride. Strong runner.
5 Primula This filly looks the value bet in the field. After winning on debut, she has also been rested. At 7-2 to place and 18-1 for the win in early betting, she hasn’t attracted much attention. Keep an eye on the money.
6 Spywing Not disgraced on debut and following up with her maiden victory, she is expected to give a decent account of herself. In this company, however, a place finish would be a more realistic goal than visiting the winner’s box.
7 Cliff Top Another Eastern Cape raider with Kenilworth dreams, this colt will have to up his game if he is to make any impact. Despite being outrun by his fellow raider on debut, he never gave up.
8 Cousin Casey This colt tried hard on debut, but couldn’t keep up with Street Outlaw, who he faces again. This time he is better off, but it might not be enough to reverse the result.
9 Grinkov One of four runners in the field beaten by Street Outlaw three weeks before Met Day, this Twice Over colt looks the least likely improver. Doesn’t make much appeal.
10 Pure Maverick Didn’t show too much on debut but wasn’t disgraced passing a few late. Based on that a midfield finish is expected in this company.
11 We’re Jamming Flew up late last time to challenge Street Outlaw. Now better off, could turn it around if keeping up with the pace. The only worry is that finishing second could become a habit.
12 Beneath The Moon She’s bottom of the bookmakers’ board for a reason and can only be described as a very optimistic entry by trainer Piet Botha.
13 Bonika Now better off with Pacific Green, she should be competitive. The only worry is that she seems to lack that killer instinct demanded from the superstars.
