Kenilworth Preview – 24 April


Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Vaughan Marshall has a very strong hand. Stable jockey MJ Byleveld is on LASATA, but a narrow preference would be for PATH OF CHOICE, who has met good sorts in all three starts. SAVVY stayed on at Durbanville on debut, and the extra should suit. Respect. BACKGAMMON, HEXATONIC, and IMPERIAL RAGE can all improve a lot on their debuts.


#5 Path Of Choice, #4 Lasata, #6 Savvy, #1 Backgammon

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R80.000, 12:40GMT+2

Race Summary: CYBER BLOSSOM has met a few good juvenile fillies, and stands out on form. But caution is usually advisable in these workriders events and exotic bets should offer value, and stable mate CONTESSA’S GLANCE could give cheek if ready after five months off. ANINA has a good rider, and form to be competitive.


#6 Cyber Blossom, #2 Anina, #1 Contessa’s Glance, #7 Rockachino

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R80.000, 13:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Juvenile THE LAST SUPPER has solid form, and meets a moderate bunch. Could be the one to beat. Stable mate CAPE OF STORMS should improve on a fair debut, and needs to be respected. OUTOFTHEORDINARY made big improvement last time and will go close if repeating. Brett Crawford debutantes GOLDEN TIPPY and KHOPESH won’t have to be stars to feature here.


#10 The Last Supper, #7 Khopesh, #8 Cape Of Storms, #1 Outoftheordinary

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R110.000, 13:50GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive. LIBRA has solid form, but Fourie plumps for class act DYNAMIC DIANA, who has met far stronger. RED GINGER completes a strong Snaith trio. INTOTHELIMELIGHT won her only try this trip, and put up a fair sprint after a rest. Respect. LOVE SUPREME and MIDNIGHT MOONLIGHT cant be ruled out in a competitive line up.


#4 Libra, #3 Intothelimelight, #1 Dynamic Diana, #2 Red Ginger

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R80.000, 14:25GMT+2

Race Summary: Open. MARY MOON would be narrow first choice, as she has been running on and has scope. Stable mate JE NE SAIS QUOI is overdue to win though, and a major danger. Similar for SILVERY HEIGHTS, who has gone close in her last two. OVER THE WAY comes off successive seconds, but is poorly drawn. SILVER BEAUTY and DAY TRIP look capable of upsetting.


#2 Mary Moon, #3 Je Ne Sais Quoi, #1 Silvery Heights, #4 Over The Way

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R80.000, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: CROME YELLOW is improving rapidly, and really should have completed the hattrick last time. Has won twice with De Melo up, and is a confident choice despite top weight. MIDDLE WOOD was an easy and overdue maiden winner, and can be competitive with 55kg. DESTIN impressed first time out the maidens, and is another to consider. DHARMA and VFORVICTORY both have solid form.


#1 Crome Yellow, #8 Middle Wood, #5 Destin, #6 Dharma

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R91.000, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: BIG SUZE looks like the type who will keep improving, and has each way prospects. Plenty of threats though, with SECRET DEPTHS, TRANSYLVANIA, and PRINCIPESSA chief among them, in a race where almost all have some type of squeak. .


#7 Big Suze, #3 Transylvania, #4 Principessa, #2 Secret Depths

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1500m, Turf, R72.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: KALAHARI NINJA is consistent, and from the one draw it could well be his day in a thin race recent form wise. SPECTRA FORCE needed his latest, and should be thereabouts, while ROCKIN’ RINGO stayed on well last week, and can surprise. Top weight ROCHESTER can threaten if overcoming the draw. JOHNNY BLACK now tries ground, and will go close if staying.


#2 Kalahari Ninja, #5 Rockin’ Ringo, #3 Spectra Force, #1 Rochester

Kenilworth, 24.04.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R80.000, 16:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Tough closer. PRINCE ORACY usually finishes well, and will get it right some day soon. JEPHTHAH has a fair shout on his fast finishing latest. TROJAN WINTER only won a workriders affair, but should be respected with Fourie up.PARA HANDY is best this course and distance, and could upset given a form return.SAVEA and RIVER THAMES are others to consider.


#4 Prince Oracy, #5 Jephthah, #6 Trojan Winter, #11 Para Handy
