Entries for Gold Cup meeting

Trainer Dean Kannemeyer will attempt to turn back the clock as It’s My Turn is among the entries for the Grade 3 Gold Cup at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday 29 August.

It’s My Turn, who has been allotted top weight of 60kg, won this race in 2018 but then had to sit out for almost two years due to injury. He ran a magnificent race in the Vodacom Durban July last month to finish fifth, beaten just 2.05 lengths by Belgarion.

Prior to that he finished a 1.10-length second behind Marchingontogether in the Grade 3 Track & Ball Derby over 2400m at Scottsville. Gavin van Zyl’s charge is also among the entries and he will meet It’s My Turn on 3.5kg better terms.

One runner who is a surprise omission from the nominations is last year’s winner, Dynasty’s Blossom. Now with Brett Crawford, she looked a likely Gold Cup booking when winning the Grade 3 Gold Vase over 3000m on Gold Cup day.

However, the runner she beat, Sean Tarry-trained Before Noon, is there.

There are four Grade 1 races on the day – the Champions Cup over 1800m, The Mercury Sprint over 1200m, the Premiers Champion Stakes over 1600m and the Thekwini Stakes for fillies, also over 1600m. The last two are specifically for juveniles but because of the delay caused by the coronavirus lockdown, all of last year’s two-year-olds turned three on 1 August.

The Champions Cup sees another clash between Do It Again and Rainbow Bridge and after the Durban July in which Do It Again finished third and Rainbow Bridge sixth, it’s anybody’s guess which one will come out on top this time. Warren Kennedy felt Rainbow Bridge just failed to see out 2200m, but he did win this race last year and this 1800m should be ideal.

Also among the entries is Rainbow Bridge’s half-brother, Golden Ducat, who ran fourth in the Durban July.

Kasimir is back to defend his Mercury Sprint title and he could well renew rivalry with runner-up Celtic Sea, who he beat by 0.50 lengths last year. Neither has drawn well with Kasimir at No 14 and Celtic Sea at No 17.

Supplementary entries close at 11am, Monday 17 August with declarations at 11am on Thursday 20 August.
