Rain to fall for Snaith

JUSTIN SNAITH

Trainer Justin Snaith holds a strong hand at Kenilworth on Saturday and in Race 6, the Grade 3 Final Fling Stakes over 1800m, should be on the mark with Rain In Newmarket.

This highly regarded daughter of Kingsbarns has yet to break the ice at stakes-race level but deserves to add significant Black Type to her resume after narrow misses in three consecutive features. She chased home stablemate Really Royal in the Listed Sweet Chestnut Stakes over 1600m and filled the runner-up berth behind Marina in the Listed Stormsvlei Stakes over 1800m before finding one too good again in the Listed Ladies Mile when last seen on 26 June.

On that occasion, when ridden by Grant van Niekerk for the first time, she got going late to finish 1.25 lengths behind Pretty Betty, with whom she renews rivalry, on 4kg better terms.

The evidence of that display suggests a return to 1800m should suit Rain In Newmarket, who is 1.5kg better off with stable companion Sleeping Single who is the best weighted runner in the race but held on the Ladies Mile form.

A race later Greg Cheyne could claim the honours in the second of the features, the World Sports Betting Champagne Stakes over 1200m.

In her second run after a layoff the Brett Crawford-trained runner ran on late to get the better of Iris by 0.40 lengths.

The runner-up is 2kg worse off while third-placed Phil’s Dancer is 1kg better off for a 1.15-length defeat. He should get closer but in Capitana’s third run back from a layoff, she could be a banker in all bets.
