Jockey Comments – Raymond Danielson
Big race-rider Raymond Danielson has a knack of popping up in Graded events and he jumps aboard Summer Cup winner Tilbury Fort who has a gallant stride. He rides for a master conditioner in Sean Tarry and although this horse may be better suited to Turffontein Racecourse,  he could be upset potential in a race of this nature. Raymond commented “Mr Tarry is a perfectionist at prepping his horses for the big occasion and I am confident he will be sound coming into the race. He had a nice and easy gallop and took it very well. My best ride on the day could possibly be Captain And Master if he stays 2200m”.

Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
The 5yr old colt TILBURY FORT has cracked pole position and is the second of three, possibly four runners, from the Sean Tarry yard. He finished well to win the Summer Cup over 2000M in early December last year. After a win in a Pinnacle Stakes race over seven furlongs, he followed that with a fourth-place finish behind Soqrat in the Horse Chestnut over a mile. He was somewhat disappointing when finishing 16 lengths behind Hawwaam in the Premiers Champion Challenge over 2000M. He is 5.5kgs better off at the weights with Hawwaam on that run, but whether that will be enough for him to turn the table with the favourite remains to be seen.

Verdict: Moderate recently, and held by Hawwaam on penultimate run
