Of the 25 entries for this very important event that has seen winners go on to capture Africa’s greatest racing honour, 19 are among the 69 early nominations for the big one on the first Saturday in July.

Visiting yards are strongly represented and Justin Snaith has nominated his four-year-old Silvano gelding Strathdon that has won his last three starts including the Woolavington at Durbanville and the Cape Summer Stayers at Kenilworth. Also from the yard is another son of Silvano, the four-year-old Platinum Prince that was narrowly beaten in the Kings Cup at Greyville in his Durban opener.

Glen Kotzen has entered his three-year-old Philanthropist colt Pack Leader that also made a very impressive Durban debut when just touched off by Head Honcho in the Sledgehammer. He had finished third in the Investec Cape Derby before that and looks an exciting prospect for honours during the season.

Dean Kammemeyer is another Western Cape conditioner with a number of entries, nominating the much talked about Silva’s Bullet along with Mr Winsome, It’s My Turn, Cape Speed, The Slade and Mambo Mime. The Slade finished fourth in the Sledgehammer last time out and second to Eyes Wide Open in the Peninsula Handicap before that.

The Irish-bred High Chaparral filly Cascapedia has been nominated by Mike de Kock along with the talented Orchid Island while champion trainer Sean Tarry has nominated a trio of runners including Social Order that won the Kings Cup at Greyville on a raid to Durban.

From the local stables, Frank Robinson has entered two runners for Roy Moodley, Roy Had Enough that won the Christmas Handicap and Roy’s Riviera that finished third in the Flamboyant Stakes.

Paul Lafferty has nominated his four-year-old Ideal World gelding Dark Moon Rising that was third in the Sledgehammer last time out and won his two previous starts at Greyville.
