Kenilworth Preview – 25 May


Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 12:10GMT+2

Race Summary: Juvenile PATH OF CHOICE appears limited, but meets a weak bunch and despite the worst draw looks the one to beat. OUTOFTHEORDINARY, ELUSIVE MASTER, and VAR EXPRESS make most appeal of the older brigade. KHOPESH and HORATIUS can both build on fair debuts, as can 2yo THEMADIRISHSHERIFF.


#7 Path Of Choice, #3 Var Express, #1 Outoftheordinary, #10 Themadirishsheriff

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R80.000, 12:45GMT+2

Race Summary: LOUISA MAY, HERCULES GIRL and ALFRED’S GIRL all look closely matched on their latest, with slight preference for the first named. DON’T BE BLUE has two good efforts to her credit and has ample scope for improvement. Respect. CONTESSA’S GLANCE can pop up if returning to best.


#2 Louisa May, #5 Alfred’s Girl, #3 Hercules Girl, #6 Don’T Be Blue

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R110.000, 13:20GMT+2

Race Summary: OUR MATE ART was most unlucky last time, and is the obvious class act. READY STEADY GO is overdue to win, and weighted to be right there. KENNY TRIX is lionhearted, and cannot be overlooked despite a 5 point MR hike. POWER GRID may now be looking for this trip and shouldn’t be ignored.


#1 Our Mate Art, #4 Ready Steady Go, #3 Kenny Trix, #6 Power Grid

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R91.000, 13:55GMT+2

Race Summary: CHARGE D’ AFFAIRES has met classy sorts in her last two and rates the one to beat. Northern Hemisphere bred SLEEPING SINGLE was a fluent maiden winner,and has a lot of scope. INDIAN SONG has been rested, but is highly consistent. FAYE has finished well in both post maiden appearances. Respect. LIP SERVICE won her maiden with authority, and could have more to come.


#1 Charge D’ Affaires, #6 Sleeping Single, #5 Indian Song, #8 Faye

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 1200m, Turf, R150.000, 14:30GMT+2

Race Summary: RUN FOX RUN has cruised to victory in all three appearances, and despite facing stronger is an ultra confident selection to do so again. Follow until beaten. CANUKEEPITSECRET is a decent sprinter,and makes most appeal of the rest. Snaith pair DYNAMIC DIANA and PLATINUM CLASS are well above average and can earn.


#8 Run Fox Run, #4 Canukeepitsecret, #3 Platinum Class, #1 Dynamic Diana

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R150.000, 15:10GMT+2

Race Summary: HELEN’S IDEAL won the Perfect Promise convincingly, and is weighted to win again. SHAMROCK WIND and STAR FIGHTER were both running on over the shorter trip though, and will make a race of it. MISS PLUMCAKE is better than her latest, and can shock, as could CORAL BAY if returning to very best.


#1 Helen’s Ideal, #4 Shamrock Wind, #2 Star Fighter, #5 Miss Plumcake

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R250.000, 15:45GMT+2

Race Summary: Looks a boat race between ONE WORLD and VARDY. Preference for the former, as he probably need his Winter Guineas run, and will strip fitter. MAJESTIC MOZART and HERODOTUS should fill the minor places, and both will be looking forward to the Winter Derby.


#1 One World, #2 Vardy, #3 Majestic Mozart, #4 Herodotus

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1800m, Turf, R91.000, 16:20GMT+2

Race Summary: PEARL JAM is knocking hard for a second win, and has a decent shout in an open contest. TRANSYLVANIA is progressive, and will be right there. BIG SUZE went close in her post maiden, and has to be respected with 52kg. Top weight ONTENDERHOOKS has to be respected on her latest. PRINCIPESSA and SUMMER MOON have claims as well.


#4 Pearl Jam, #6 Transylvania, #8 Big Suze, #1 Ontenderhooks

Kenilworth, 25.05.2019, Race 9, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R80.000, 16:55GMT+2

Race Summary: Minefield. TROJAN WINTER made a pleasing post maiden showing, and could be a little undervalued. Rested WESTERN STORM goes well fresh and has upset potential. SKIDOO has scored both wins over this course and distance and has tobe respected, as do SHADOWING and BELLINGHAM BAY. FIRE WALKER and PRINCE ORACY can shock.


#7 Trojan Winter, #1 Western Storm, #2 Skidoo, #6 Bellingham Bay

Best Win: #8 RUN FOX RUN

Best Value Bet: #4 PEARL JAM

Best Longshot: #4 PEARL JAM
