Double Superlative is currently looking a picture of well-being (Picture supplied).

Last year’s Grade 1 Cape Guineas winner Double Superlative sustained a tendon injury in Durban earlier this year, so has not been seen since running a 1,55 length fifth from a wide draw in the Grade 2 WSB Guineas at Hollywoodbets Greyville.
However, the Justin Snaith-trained Twice Over colt is back in training and is being targeted at next year’s Cape Summer Festival Of Racing.
Jonathan Snaith said, “He is in recovery and has started work again. He’s doing exceptionally well and will be back in the next Cape Summer Season. He’s an outstanding horse and will be back.”
Double Superlative was awarded a 125 merit rating after his impressive win in last year’s Cape Guineas, which is just three points less than the rating Charles Dickens was given on Saturday.
Last year’s Cape Guineas form has worked out well.
Every single horse in the race bar Double Superlative and his stablemate Pacaya have won at least one race since.
That includes a Grade 1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby win for Pomp And Power, a Grade 2 win for Cosmic Highway, a Grade 2 win for Zapatillas, a Grade 3 win for Universal, a Grade 3 and a Grade 2 win for Trip Of Fortune, a Grade 3 win for Waterberry Lane, a Non-Black Type win for Surjay, a Listed win for Xavion, a Non-Black Type win for Mr Master Starter and a Listed win for Chollima.
