MIKE de Kock has entered Sheikh Hamdan’s smart colt Naafer (AUS) in the Gr1 Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion (R750,000) over 1200m at Scottsville on 27 May.

Naafer made his debut in the Gr1 SA Nursery on Champions Day and finished second to rising star Mustaaqeem, beaten four lengths, but himself two lengths clear of the third horse.

Dennis Drier’s promising Sand And Sea and Charles Laird’s Gr3 placed Varallo are other notable entries.
