8) POMP AND POWER 7/1

POMP AND POWER won the Gr1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby in February, and after a gallant prep run, when in need of it in the Gr2 WSB Guineas and beaten under a length by Zapatillas, he was his own worst enemy as he fought during the Gr1 Daily News 2000. If Richard Fourie is able to conserve the son of Vercingetorix, he could turn the tables on Safe Passage. Fourie is looking for his fourth Hollywoodbets Durban July trophy and is one of the most effective riders in South Africa – provided by Sporting Post
