A fantastic renewal of the R3mil Grade 1 The Sun Met (2000m) takes pace at Kenilworth racecourse, South Africa, on Friday and last year’s victor RAINBOW BRIDGE is primed to go back-to-back in the coveted contest.
RAINBOW BRIDGE has maintained form at the highest level since last year’s The Sun Met win, winning once but not out of the placings in five subsequent starts. Top class globetrotting jockey Ryan Moore flies in to ride RAINBOW BRIDGE this year and a bold defence of the title is expected. Trainer Justin Snaith will be doing his best to thwart RAINBOW BRIDGE’S chance to defend his crown, however, with last year’s runner-up DO IT AGAIN entering this race off the back of two subsequent wins but disappointing at his two most recent outings.
Up-and-coming four-year-olds VARDY and ONE WORLD have solid credentials but are unknown at the journey, while HAWWAAM’S staying capabilities hold him in good stead. In total, a final field of 14 horses contest the 2020 edition of The Sun Met – a must see for all racing fans.
