MADE TO CONQUER
Ken Nicol: The riding picture for the forthcoming Sun Met Celebrated with G.H Mumm is becoming clearer by the day.
S’Manga Khumalo is the latest to commit, and he will be riding Justin Snaith’s Vodacom July runner up Made To Conquer, who has largely been overlooked while stablemates Do It Again and Oh Susanna have swept all before them.
Those two will of course be ridden by Richard Fourie and Bernard Fayd’Herbe respectively, while rapidly improving Doublemint will be partnered by Piere Strdom. and is the fourth Snaith entry.
Keagan De Melo will continue with perhaps the most intriguing outsider Head Honcho, who won the Grade 2 Premiers Trophy so impressively for Andre Nel, while Aldo Domeyer takes stable companion Kampala Campari.
Those are the only six to have ben officially declared, but the engagement of Anton Marcus for Rainbow Bridge has been widely publicized, while Sean Tarry has been clear that Lyle Hewitson will now be aboard Legal Eagle.
Gavin Lerena has also been confirmed on Glen Kotzen’s Eyes Wide Open, making a total of nine ‘definites’ in all.
