Sun Met 2017 - Final Field Betting

The Sun Met 2017 - Final Field and Betting available at Hollyowodbets

The final field for the 2017 Sun Met has been announced! The R5 Million stakes race will be contested over 2000m at Kenilworth racecourse on Saturday 28th January 2017. 

After success in the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate, Legal Eagle will be the one to beat in this year's race. The Sean Tarry-trained six-year-old gelding ran a cracking race to defeat most of his competitors in this field, but he will be tested with the extra quarter-mile to race. A big draw card for the event will be that of champion jockey Frankie Dettori, who has been flown in by the Joey Ramsden stable to ride the 2016 Vodacom Durban July winner The Conglomerate. Bela Bela enters this race on the back of a flying-finish victory in the Paddock Stakes, while Marinaresco - an early ante-post favourite for this race - will look to be running on in the final furlongs.

Magic Tips - Sun Met Preview

The serious lack of a genuine pace throws the prestigious Grade 1 SunMet wide open and an upset could be on the cards.

Enter the genius of one of the country's finest horsemen aboard IT'S MY TURN, and the Snaith inmate is selected to keep his 100% c & d record intact.

His finest career moment came in the Derby over this track & trip just over a year ago and the long-striding son of Dynasty has produced smart subsequent performances at the highest level, including a solid 4th in the July.

His prep has been excellent & he could be a totally different proposition for WHISKY BARON over this ten furlongs, despite the favourable weight turnaround for the latter.

His good draw should enable his jockey to sit right up with the early speed and possibly dictate terms.

The latter is unbeaten since the gelding and his Winter Series clashes with the top class MARINARESCO must bring him into the equation despite the noticeable rise in class.

The latter was disappointing last time but should love the ten furlongs.

The sedate gallop could still put paid to his chances despite the good draw.

The brilliant LEGAL EAGLE only beat CAPTAIN AMERICA (2.5kgs better off) by one length in this race last year & has a tough task.

Magic Tips - Sun Met Predicted Finish:
1st - It's My Turn (5)
2nd - Legal Eagle (1)
3rd - Captain America (6)
4th - Marinaresco (4)
5th - Whisky Baron (8)
