Cape comeback for Kailene

MUZI YENI

Jack Milner: Muzi Yeni makes the trip to Kenilworth on Saturday to be reunited with Kailene in the Grade 2 Western Cape Fillies Championship over 1400m.

Ridden by Yeni, this Glen Kotzen-trained daughter of Jackson brings Grade 1 form into the race as she was touched off by Rain In Holland in the Thekwini Stakes over 1600m at Greyville in July. 

She has not raced since, but while the Grade 1 Cape Fillies Guineas in December is clearly her mission, Kotzen will be looking for a positive showing from his charge, who is the best weighted runner in the field.

“I hope she will run a massive race and must be included into all bets,” said Yeni.

Justin Snaith saddles four runners, the best of whom looks to be Maria Querol, winner of the Listed Irridescence Stakes over 1500m at Kenilworth in June. She is drawn No 1 and has Richard Fourie up.

Maria Querol won by 3.25 lengths from Amanzimtoti who represents trainer Candice Bass-Robinson. While Snaith’s charge will be having her first run in 119 days, Amanzimtoti has had a winning warm-up, as has stablemate Santa Maria, who ran third in the Irridescence Stakes.

Some promising colts and geldings go to post for the Cape Classic and this race should once again be a pointer to the Grade 1 Cape Guineas.

Snaith and Bass-Robinson have three runners each but perhaps Brett Crawford can put a spoke in their wheel with Zapatillas. He tries 1400m for the first time, but he did produce the fastest final 400m when going down 0.75 lengths to Grade 3 Legal Eagle Stakes winner Hoedspruit over 1250m at Durbanville and that could be the strongest form line.

An interesting runner is Adam Marcus-trained Universal, who is the half-brother to former Queen’s Plate winner Vardy.

He wowed onlookers when streaking clear to win his maiden over 1200m by almost 10 lengths in just his second start and this race will help racegoers assess the quality of that performance.
