3)  HOEDSPRUIT 14/1

HOEDSPRUIT is a son of 2014 Durban July winner Legislate and comes in off a fairly low-key prep of few fireworks. He was returning from a four-month break post the Cape Town Met last time, and was in clear need of the run. The Gr2 Glorious Goodwood Premier Trophy winner has often been on the fringes of the action, but tries the 2200m for the first time and should relish the challenge – provided by Sporting Post
