Picture: “The People’s Horse” Kommetdieding reappears in the intriguing Bantry Bay Stakes on Saturday at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth (Wayne Marks).

Kommetdieding (Elusive Fort) makes his seasonal reappearance in Saturday’s R150,000 Non-Black Type Bantry Bay Stakes over 1200m.

The race has attracted an intriguing mix of runners.

Among them is the enigmatic Pomp And Power, who was scratched at the start of the Grade 3 Matchem Stakes last up for refusing to load.     

The Matchem Stakes winner, Trip Of Fortune, who crossed the line second but was later awarded the race in the boardroom, is also in the line up. 

Another interesting runner is the former Equus Champion Sprinter Rio Querari (Querari), who has not been seen since running third to Cosmic Highway and Trip Of Fortune in the Grade 2 Khaya Stables Diadem Stakes back in February.

Also on the comeback trail is Universal, the highly regarded Grade 3 Cape Racing Politician Stakes winner, who finished runner up to Pomp And Power in the Grade 1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby in his last appearance in February.

Also in the line up are Grade 1-winning sprinters Ambiorix and Tempting Fate as well as Grade 2 Post Merchants runner up Good Traveller and also up and coming sprinters like Mr Master Starter and Surjay.

It should be a thrilling race and an excellent betting heat for punters to get involved in.
