eLan Gold Cup 2017 - Final Field

Final Field Betting For The 2017 eLAN Gold Cup - Horse Racing - Greyville - South Africa

The final field for the 2017 eLan Gold Cup at Greyville has been announced. Betting is now available at Hollywoodbets. View the runners below.


The Gr3 Gold Cup will be one of the final graded races for the 2016/17 South African horse racing season. The mammoth 3200m distance is an ultimate test of endurance, seeing the runners cross the finish post twice to complete the race. 

HERMOSO MUNDO from the Weiho Marwing stable has proved that he is a long distance specialist, finishing on top of the podium in the SABC Gold Vase (3000m) on Durban July Day, and the Gold Bowl (3200m) at Turffontein. A third consecutive Gr 3 victory would be the cherry on the cake for this 4-year old gelding.

KINAAN, who finished 3rd in the Gold Vase, will now be 2kg better off when he faces his victor here. The gelding will be aiming to make it three consecutive Gold Cup victories for champion trainer Mike de Kock, who won this race with Enaad (2016) and Wild One (2015).

KRAMBAMBULI, who had a horrid run in the Durban July, will relish this extra distance as well as enjoy the services of Durban July winning jockey Bernard Fayd'herbe.

Magic Tips Preview

The imported gelding KINAAN has peaked at the right time and will be looking to finish two better than his 3rd in last year's running of this event. The four-year old ran on well behind HERMOSO MUNDO and CAPTAIN SPLENDID in that controversial last event over 3000m on 'July Day'. He faces the former on 2kgs better terms.

Of course the latter pairing were involved in that titanic tussle recently and the verdict eventually went the way of HERMOSO MUNDO albeit via the boardroom after CAPTAIN SPLENDID shifted his ground badly in the latter stages. Interestingly, the promoted winner was upped a hefty six pounds but the Gauteng visitor is unbeaten since joining this yard and still has claims on his peak showing.

ROYAL BADGE has had the ideal preparation coming into this event and could be a lively threat if handling the two miles. He weakened in his only effort over this distance earlier this year but his recent efforts have indicated that he will enjoy this extra ground. Interestingly, his top jockey has forgone his stable engagements to partner this four-year old gelding.

The proven stayer and top weight KRAMBAMBULI had a brilliant last performance in the 'July' but still faces a stiff test.

1st - KINAAN (16)
2nd - ROYAL BADGE (7)
