Three to back in Cape

Three to back in Cape


Trevor Reid: There are several promising types to follow at Kenilworth where an eight-race card on the winter track is scheduled for Monday.

And punters could profit a small fortune by betting on these runners and following their progress.

Gimmethegreenlight gelding Djockovic served up an eye-catching debut over 1200m at the beginning of the month, when only getting into the race late.

He was all at sea for the first 800m before clocking the fastest time from the 400m mark to the finish.

Joey Ramsden’s charge was only beaten 3.50 lengths by hot-favourite and more-experienced Constable from the Candice Bass-Robinson yard. With natural improvement expected, Djockovic will be wiser to the task and should ‘ace’ his rivals in Race 1.

Well-related Nexus returned to winning ways last time after back-to-back seconds in both starts since leaving the maiden ranks. He beat Ben-Hur by 1.25 lengths over 1600m and renews rivalry with the latter in Race 2.

We have yet to see the best of this Justin Snaith-trained Dynasty colt, who is a full-brother to classy Grade 1 performer Lady In Black, and he should confirm superiority despite the 0,5kg weight turnaround.

Highly regarded Sailing Ship was supported in a 1200m juvenile feature against winners last time but felt amiss and didn’t raise a gallop. She must be forgiven that effort and should make amends when reverting to maiden company in Race 3.

Regally bred Lilac Sensation is sure to attract attention, though, and this Snaith-trained half-sister to Snowdance must be included in exotics.
