The six-year-old gelding will be looking to put his best foot forward on Saturday for trainer Piet Botha. Expect him to set the pave on race day, whether or not he can win is another story though.

An exciting field of 11 runners go to post for the Grade 1 WSB Cape Town Met. KOMMETDIEDING has had the perfect preparation heading into this race. He did his best work late when finishing third in the Non-Black Type Cape Mile and his run in the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate last time was even more encouraging. He will come into this race at peak fitness and from pole position, he should be the one to beat.

JET DARK was ultra-impressive when winning the Grade 1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate last time. Despite losing two lengths at the start, he quickened up well and drew clear of the opposition. The son of Trippi tries the 2000m for the first time and if seeing out the extra distance on offer, he should go close to winning.

LINEBACKER is much better than his last start suggests. He is unbeaten from two starts over this distance. It is encouraging that Grant van Niekerk steps back into the saddle and the combination cannot be ignored.

MARINA got going too late when finishing third behind Captain’s Ransom in the Grade 1 Cartier Paddock Stakes last time. The daughter of Silvano stays all day and she should give the males a run for their money.
