Dingaans winner confirmed for Gauteng Guineas

MONKS HOOD

Jack Milner: Monks Hood and Surcharge are the highest rated runners in the R1-million Gauteng Guineas at Turffontein on Saturday 3 March.

There will be a bumper 16 horses carded to race in the Grade 2 Race over 1600m.

Monks Hood won the Investec Dingaans (Grade 2) over this course and distance in November and Alistair Gordon’s runner will have many supporters for this event. He will be ridden by champion jockey Anthony Delpech and is well enough drawn at No 7.

Both he and Stuart Pettigrew-trained Surcharge have merit ratings of 104 but the latter has drawn wide at No 14. Piere Strydom takes the ride. Unbeaten Majestic Mambo has strong claims but he will jump from barrier No 11.

The withdrawal of Dean Kannemeyer-trained Hashtagyolo who has a virus, is likely to see strong support for Mike de Kock-trained Fish River and Paul Peter’s Folk Dance. However, neither is well drawn.

The Gauteng Guineas is the first leg of the R2-million SA Triple Crown while the Wilgerbosdrift Gauteng Fillies Guineas is the first leg of the R1-million Wilgerbosdrift SA Triple Tiara
