Trainer Comments:
Justin Snaith on his chestnut colt:

"Doublemint is another one of my horses having their third run after a rest and although he has a tough task at the weights, he is still a horse on the up.”

Jockey Comments:
Piere Strydom last tasted champagne success in this race in 2003 with Angus and he joins up with the powerful Snaith outfit once again. His comments on his mount Doublemint were:

“His prep has gone really well and he has third run after a rest so he should be spot on. He does have a tough task being 10.5kgs out at the weights with Do It Again and whether he is good enough remains to be seen. One should expect a nice strong pace in the Met and the best horse should win."

"Do It Again and Rainbow Bridge are the two horses to beat but I will be hoping for a good performance.”

Winning Form - Magic Tips Comment:
Improving sort but faces his 'acid' test today, will enjoy the extra furlong.
