JJ The Jet Plane won 15 races in four countries with his most notable success coming in the grade 1 Hong Kong Sprint in 2010.
It might still be money well spent as Munchkin was mighty impressive as he raced to his maiden win at Turffontein last month.
A R50,000 buy from Klawervlei Stud, Golden Prospect won his first start in April in fine style and then found the company too hot in two juvenile feature events.
Golden Prospect’s stablemate, Twice The Storm, also comes into the equation with Calvin Habib seeming to prefer the two-time winner to Venniker’s mount.
With a merit-rating of 112, Sound Of Warning looks well treated in this 1,450m contest though her unplaced run in last month’s Merchants Handicap is a concern.
Hennie Greyling, booked for three rides for Van Vuuren, will be delighted to be partnering such a well-performing filly and the market will be the best guide to her chance.
