Kenilworth (Saturday)

Race 1 – Lion Rampart

Lion Rampart demonstrated the anticipated natural progression, securing victory in his second outing over 1000m in the Non-Black Type HeartFM Commonwealth Plate. Displaying commendable pace, despite some greenness in his racing, he claimed the win with ease. As the offspring of One World, he exhibits a progressive nature and is poised to handle the transition to 1100m seamlessly. With Richard Fourie retaining the ride, he undoubtedly emerges as the frontrunner and the one to beat in this race.

Race 2 – Handsome Prince

Handsome Prince stands out as one of the top contenders in the upcoming races. Securing a notable victory in a well-fought race during his second appearance over 1000m on this course, the son of Querari showcases promising potential. As a horse in the making, he appears to be on an upward trajectory. The step up to 1200m shouldn’t pose any challenges, and his impressive speed suggests he will be a formidable force, making it difficult for rivals to catch up during the run down to the finish line.

Race 3 – Call To Unite

Following his maiden triumph, Call To Unite continued to impress with a commendable second-place finish over this course and distance. Despite facing an obstruction in the form of being held up for a run at the 300m mark, the son of Vercingetorix displayed resilience. Renowned for his versatility and inherent class, Call To Unite remains a contender of note. Should he encounter a favourable run of luck, there’s a strong possibility of finding him in the winner’s enclosure in this race.

Race 4 – At My Command

At My Command showcased formidable competitiveness in the Grade 2 Anthonij Rupert Wine Premier Trophy in his last outing, putting up a strong challenge but ultimately yielding to the impressive Mucho Dinero. With two victories and a second-place finish from four starts over this distance, he has proven his prowess at the distance. Positioned as a strong contender, should the leading choice falter, At My Command could be the one to capitalize and emerge as the candidate to pick up the pieces and secure victory.

Race 5 – Shantastic

Fantastic, a filly boasting a commendable track record, has delivered two noteworthy performances this season. In her most recent outing, she demonstrated resilience by staying on to secure a respectable fourth place in the Grade 2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes. As the daughter of Rafeef, Shantastic is poised for what appears to be her peak run today. Given her consistent form and the potential for optimal performance, she undoubtedly commands a considerable amount of respect in this race. Keep an eye on Shantastic as she aims to showcase her prowess and make a significant impact on the racing scene.

Race 6 – Thunderstruck

Thunderstruck has secured victories in his last two starts, with the most recent triumph coming in the Non-Black Type Winchester Sprint Cup. Guided skillfully by Piere Strydom, he received an exceptional ride on that occasion. As the son of Rafeef, Thunderstruck currently finds himself in a positive and promising form. With the potential for a hat-trick of wins, his impressive track record suggests that he is well-positioned to continue his winning streak in this race. Keep an eye on Thunderstruck as he aims for another stellar performance on the racetrack.

Race 7 – Princess Calla

Princess Calla, narrowly trailing Beach Bomb by 0.3 lengths in the Grade 1 Cartier Paddock Stakes, now carries a 1kg weight advantage. With a track record of two wins, three seconds, and two-thirds in eight starts over this distance, the 6-year-old mare, jumping from a handy draw of five, eyes a swift return to winning ways. Watch as she seeks redemption and aims for victory.

Race 8 – Bavarian Beauty

Bavarian Beauty triumphed in her seasonal debut over 1400m at Turffontein and previously won the Grade 1 Douglas Whyte Thekwini Stakes over this distance. As the class horse in the field, a hat-trick is within reach with a bit of racing luck. Watch for another standout performance from Bavarian Beauty.

Race 9 – See It Again

See It Again is the top choice for this race. Despite an impressive showing in the Grade 1 L’Ormarins King’s Plate, where he narrowly missed out on Charles Dickens, the son of Twice Over is poised for success with a favourable step up to 2000m and peak fitness. Despite a wide draw, the expert guidance of Piere Strydom adds to his advantage. See It Again is widely considered the best in the field, making him a strong contender to secure victory. Get ready for an exciting race as See It Again aims to outshine the competition.
