Justin Snaith has the ante-post favourite in both of the R1 million events on Marshalls World Of Sports Gold Cup day.

In the Grade 1 Champions Cup he has Jet Dark and in the Grade 1 Mercury Sprint he has Captain’s Ransom.

However, the winning cheques for those two races only add up to R1,250,000.

He is R2,752,288 behind Paul Peter in the race for the national trainers championship at the time of writing.

Snaith does also have runners in other features, but the combined winning cheques of those races are not going to add up to the R1.5 million he will need to add to the R1,25 million.

Therefore, it is safe to state Peter cannot be caught. 

Peter needs just two more wins to reach 216 for the season, which will surpass the record of 215 set by Sean Tarry in the 2016/2017 season.
