Brendan Gaillard (Media/Tipster/Owner): 1st Jet Dark 2nd Kommetdieding 3rd Make It Snappy 4th Cousin Casey Comments: JET DARK and KOMMETDIEDING have proved time and again (2022 Met, Durban July, Champions Cup, etc) that they are the best WFA middle-distance horses in the country. They were 2nd and 1st respectively in this race last year but, having got the better of their last 2 meetings, I expect those positions to be reversed by the former in this year’s renewal. MAKE IT SNAPPY is on a steep upward trajectory and lines up in pursuit of a Grade 1 hat-trick as their main danger. She dictated her own terms to win both the Cape Fillies Guineas & Paddock Stakes and is likely to have things her own way in front again, so will be hard to catch under a light weight. With the step up in distance likely to suit, COUSIN CASEY could emerge best of the rest. He was staying on well when 2nd in the Cape Guineas, suggesting the step up in distance will be to his liking. On pedigree he should see out the trip and may be even better for it, so a place in the Quartet looks well within his reach.
