Interesting facts about this race:

All four jockeys that finished in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th - were South African based jockeys! They were Anthony Delpech, Weichong Marwing, Felix Coetzee and Glyn Schofield respectively.

The horse that finished in 2nd place was the Mike de Kock trained GREYS INN, which Anthony Delpech had ridden to victory in the 2004 Vodacom Durban July!
