Kenilworth Preview – 27 November



Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 1, Gallops, 1000m, Turf, R70.000, 13:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Competitive opener. WARRIOR TIGER was narrowly beaten at handicap level last time and on that form should go close back in a maiden. AL BRAGGA, RADIANT LOVE and WINTER OASIS could pose a threat if building on improved recent efforts. Watch the betting on well-bred debutante HELLO TOMORROW who could make her presence felt in receipt of weight from her male rivals. Good start



#2 Warrior Tiger, #3 Al Bragga, #9 Hello Tomorrow, #6 Winter Oasis

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 2, Gallops, 1600m, Turf, R77.500, 13:40GMT+2

Race Summary: Fascinating contest featuring a number of Guineas hopefuls. Exciting KILINDINI is held in the highest regard and is bred to improve over this trip so could complete his hat-trick. Stablemate COUNT JACK could also have more to offer over the extra and is weighted to pose a threat. ROCKIN’ RINGO is closely matched with that rival. Well-bred WILD COAST has a shout too. Must see!


#1 Kilindini, #7 Count Jack, #3 Wild Coast, #2 Rockin’ Ringo

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 3, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R70.000, 14:20GMT+2

Race Summary: STILL TAPPIN and THE VOW produced smart debut efforts. Both should improve with the benefit of that experience and are bred to be better over this trip. RETAIL THERAPY finished ahead of that pair so warrants respect. LOOKS LIKEMAGIC disappointed last time out but will be competitive if bouncing back to her earlier form. INNOGEN and SWEET KARMA can also earn reverting to 1400m.


#10 Still Tappin, #11 The Vow, #3 Looks Like Magic, #4 Retail Therapy

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 4, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R72.500, 14:55GMT+2

Race Summary: The Snaith yard holds a strong hand and riding arrangements suggest ELUSIVE FORTUNE is the the stable elect. However, SUMMER MOON should improve after a pleasing comeback run and is weighted to pose a threat to progressive ROSALIE RUNS who won a similar race over track and trip last time. MANINGI INDABA has more to do at this level but is dangerous in receipt of weight. Open!


#7 Rosalie Runs, #1 Summer Moon, #5 Elusive Fortune, #4 Dancing Sally

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 5, Gallops, 2000m, Turf, R77.500, 15:30GMT+2

Race Summary: Maturing KHOPESH wore down SAINT WEST over 2400m to snatch victory on his handicap debut. Both are likely to feature prominently again and there’s little to choose between the pair on these terms. SNOWY MOUNTAIN is closely matched with the latter and is weighted to be competitive too. However, the form of SIR MICHAEL’s last-start success is working out well so he gets the nod.


#5 Sir Michael, #7 Snowy Mountain, #2 Khopesh, #1 Saint West

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 6, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R70.000, 16:05GMT+2

Race Summary: Good race. TEMPLE GRAFIN acquitted herself well at the highest level during the KZN season, having beaten SANTA CLARA and subsequent Gr.1 winner SILVANO’S PRIDE when racing fresh over this trip. She renews rivalry with that pair on better terms so is one to beat. STAR FIGHTER has a bit to find at  the weights but is race fit and could pose a threat on her Diana Stakes form.


#6 Temple Grafin, #5 Silvano’s Pride, #4 Santa Clara, #7 Star Fighter

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 7, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R67.500, 16:45GMT+2

Race Summary: ROCKET GIRL was unlucky not to have finished closer last time in a better race so must be retained. HAMMIE’S FAN and FOREST FIELD remain consistent and can get a look in. FERRARI RED wasn’t disgraced under a big weight last time and can fare better in this while stablemate TRANSCEND has plenty scope to improve. GIMME GIMME GIMME will have more to offer over this trip. Open!


#7 Gimme Gimme Gimme, #4 Ferrari Red, #1 Rocket Girl, #2 Forest Field

Kenilworth, 27.11.2019, Race 8, Gallops, 1400m, Turf, R70.000, 17:20GMT+2

Race Summary: Well-bred AL’S MY DADDY showed signs of inexperience on debut but would have come on appreciably for the outing and must be followed. DOPPIO ORO finished ahead of the selection in his first start after gelding and could also improve while RONALDO has a bit to find on that form. THE CAMBO is drawn wide but has shown enough to be competitive. ANECDOTE could also improve this trip
