The Cape Town Met is finally here! It may be behind closed doors but it makes up for it on the quality carded.
The Pick 6 carryover is expected to reach R15 million.
The clean and uninterrupted live feed is available on www.caperacing.co.za for all those watching by phone, Ipad or smart tv. Supersport (DSTV207) will also cover the event from 3:15pm.
Justin Snaith runs through the card race by race but expects a major upset and recommends fields in certain legs of the pick 6.
Race 1: *Danilo Danilovitch(3)* will take some beating in the opener.
Race 2: Looks a tricky race. Not much between Starboard (1) and Daughter of Zeus (2) with the latter proving more value. Love Note (8) is worth considering at 50-1.
Race 3: All the talk is Grand Escape (13) but I feel this race is far more difficult and recommend going wide in the Place Accumulator – include Wolf Man (3)
*THE PICK 6 COMMENCES!!* R15 million expected likely pool.
Race 4: Pinkerton (9) is in fine form and will run a huge race despite weight turnaround. Another tricky affair.
Race 5: *High Hosanna (4)* has improved and will take some beating. Stable mate Kwinta’s Light (7) is good value and worth an each way bet.
Race 6: Rascallion (2) will take some beating. Both my horses should be included in pick 6. Hoedspruit (4) is far better than his form and 16-1 is generous. Legitimate (13) could cause a pick 6 upset – ignore his rating.
DON’T FORGET TO SWITCH TO SUPERSPORT (DSTV207) at 3:15pm to get all the bells and whistles.
Race 7: All three of my horses must be included in pick 6 with Kasimir (1) marginally standing out despite the short trip. The two fillies Celtic Sea (10) and Run Fox Run (11) have to both be considered with the latter possibly turning the tables on their last encounter.
Race 8: I feel the three-year-old’s could dominate this Gr1 event with *Captain’s Ransom (10)* standing out – banker! Chat Ching (11-1) looks her biggest danger and good value at 10-1.
Race 9 CAPE TOWN MET: Belgarion (3) is strong over this trip and will be the horse to beat. He is a banker for the quartet carryover. Do it Again (2) is pure class and can storm home if he gets into his full stride. Rainbow Bridge (1) doesn’t know how to run a bad race and must be respected.
Race 10: *Silver Host (7)* loves this trip and will be hard to beat. Crome Yellow (2) looks his main competition.
Race 11: Viridian Light (3) is knocking on the door and will be right in the money again. This race could well throw up a major upset. Look for the spook!
Race 12: Naval Secret (7) is the wrong price at 10-1 and is worth an each way bet. Tarantino (1) was unlucky in his most recent start and if jumps on terms he need serious consideration.
See you back at the races SOON!
