13) KOMMETDIEDING 25/2

KOMMETDIEDING is the defending champion and carries joint topweight with Snaith star, Jet Dark. The son of Elusive Fort traveled to the Highveld after his resounding score in the Gr1 Cape Town Met, and was beaten – but not disgraced – in both Gr1 contests that he ran in. He has been rested two months and has not had a run on the East Coast this season. His excellent public gallop suggested that they will all have to be on their A-game to stop him making it a double on 2 July – provided by Sporting Post.
