The top two-year-old colts Whatever Next (Alan Greeff) and Norton Sound (Gavin Smith) resume their rivalry on Friday at Fairview.
They were involved in a very exciting finish in the East Cape Nursery last month when Whatever Next was the winner by half a length over 1200m.
This time they clash in the Dahlia Plate over the same distance but both will have different jockeys to make the mouth-watering rematch even more interesting.
Greg Cheyne and Marco van Rensburg are giving the meeting a miss. Richard Fourie will ride Whatever Next and Lyle Hewitson will be on Norton Sound.
