Mike de Kock wasn’t joking when he said he had a few other good three-year-olds apart from undefeated Mount Pleasant.
Both Forever Mine and Malmoos scored easy wins at Turffontein on Saturday to maintain their own spotless records, and enhance growing reputations.
First Forever Mine made every yard in the Graduation over 1450m, seeing off some useful older rivals with authority.
Impressive as that was, Malmoos was even more eye-catching.
In a MR98 Handicap restricted to sophomores over the same trip, he raced handy before bolting clear to win by over six lengths unextended in a time half a second quicker than his stablemate.
It will be interesting to see where this high class pair go next. -tt
