Trainer Comments:
Defending champion trainer Candice Bass–Robinson has another roughie in ROCKET COUNTDOWN this year and the sprightly Capetonian was very pleased with her charge’s gallop. She further commented, "He wasn’t green at Greyville and is doing very well at present. I think there will be a fair pace and a bit of luck in running is needed in this race. African Night Sky is a big danger, very open after that."

Robert Fayd’Herbe said about Rocket Countdown’s draw of five, “You can’t not be pleased with that draw. It is not the strongest field and he stays well. The Cape Town three-year-olds are always finishing on top of each other so he is not badly weighted and has a chance.”
