The Justin Snaith-trained Royal Aussie (Royal Mo) has gone to the top of the WSB R7.5 million Gold Rush log after his fine fourth place finish in the Grade 1 Hollywoodbets Cape Guineas. He will represent popular owners Suzette and Basie Viljoen in the lucrative race.
The Vaughan Marshall-trained Dave The King (Global View) ran on for an excellent fifth in the Cape Guineas after finding cover and settling, as opposed to his run in the Grade 2 Punters Cup when taking too strong a hold early. He is merit rated just one point below Royal Aussie on 108 and remains in second place on the log.
His owners Larry Nestadt, Gary Player and Ralphs Racing do not hold a ticket for the Gold Rush.
However, there are sure to be enquiries from ticket holders about him.
The Marshall-trained Time Fo Orchids (Time Thief), rated 107, drops down to third place.
