Twelve accepted on Monday  for the R750 000 G1 Jonsson Workwear G1 Cape Derby to be run at Kenilworth this Saturday. 

Unbeaten Kommetdieding is yet to be seriously stretched in four outings, and is drawn on the paint. He looks absolute top class, and after his G3 Politician Stakes win he now goes for his first victory at the highest level.
 
And it would be a great romantic story, as he is owned, trained, and ridden by people who  have had to do it the hard way.
 
Cape Guineas winner Russian Rock is an obvious threat if he gets the distance. 
 
Vaughan Marshall’s Linebacker and Rascallion also deserve respect.   
 
As does The Gatekeeper. Justin Snaith’s highly touted ‘July horse’ has been backed from 16-1 into 7-2 in the ante-post market.
