Final Summer Cup log

With no major races this week likely to make any impact, the final log issued for the World Sports Betting presents the Gauteng Summer Cup gives a fairly accurate look into the probable field for this Grade 1 race over 2000m at Turffontein on Saturday 27 November.

The only relevant change from last week is that Majestic Mozart gets into the log at number 17 after his emphatic Progress Plate win and subsequent ratings increase from 106 to 110.  As a result, Al Muthana, rated 104, who previously occupied 20th spot, has now dropped into the next five.

What still could affect the field is the final entry stage on Friday 19 November, after which the weights will be announced.

Now back to its pre-Covid stake of R2 million and the change to the conditions, the Gauteng Summer Cup has attracted some of the best horses in the country.

This year’s race is a handicap with a 6kg spread. Top weight to be carried is 60kg with the bottom weight set at 54kg.

This means that horses like five-time Grade 1 winner Got The Greenlight, SA Triple Crown champion Malmoos and Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara winner War Of Athena, will be well handicapped.

Got The Greenlight will have had two warm-up races going into the Summer Cup and should be at his peak, while trainer Mike de Kock has declared his satisfaction about Malmoos’ preparation following his run in the OnamissionMile, won by Bingwa, who is also high up on the log.

War Of Athena could not have had a better loosening up race with her win in a Pinnacle Stakes for fillies and mares over 1400m at Turffontein.

Declarations must be made by noon on Monday 22 November.

Also run on the day are the Grade 2 Dingaans over 1600m for three-year-olds, the Grade 2 Ipi Tombe Challenge for fillies and mares over 1600m, the Grade 3 Merchants and Magnolia Handicap (for fillies and mares), both over 1160m, and the Listed Racing Association Stayers over 3200m.
