9) JET DARK 14/1

JET DARK carries joint topweight and is a member of the illustrious dual L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate winner’s club. The son of Trippi ran a dazzling prep with a low-flying third in the Gr1 Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge a fortnight ago, and will be partnered by dual Durban July-winning rider, Bernard Fayd’herbe. He has the class and now tackles his first race beyond 2000m. All the signs point to a big effort!
