JOCKEY Comments:
Richard Fourie - "I've been praising the horse for six months. I am very confident. He's by Silvano and he's got BMT. He's come on leaps and bounds and will love every bit of the trip. I'm just glad to be on him."

"I have no doubt the horse can do it. I know I can do it. At the weights it should be a penalty kick. The draw is critical and will determine how fast the race is run, but I've got my plan."
