Raiders target EC Derby

WSB ECD SM

The Eastern Cape trainers will have to fight off a very powerful Western Cape challenge if they are to keep the trophy for the R350,000 World Sports Betting East Cape Derby at home.

This Listed race over 2400m on the turf is part of the Fairview double-header on Friday and Saturday. The first meeting will be run on the Polytrack and will feature the final leg of the World Sports Betting East Cape Poly Challenge over 1600m.

As there have been different winners of the first two legs – Juan Two Three winning the 1000m event and Lets Play Ball the race over 1400m – the R250,000 bonus for any horse winning all three legs cannot be claimed. However, there are a few runners with a chance of earning the R50,000 bonus which works on points.

The rules explicitly state to win the bonus the horse has to have run in all three events, so favourite for the prize has to be Sharon Kotzen-trained Lets Play Ball who has 10 points. Breakfast Club from the Alan Greeff yard lies on nine points, six for running second in the first leg and three for a fourth place in the second leg.

Should either win, he will claim the prize. If not, the calculators will have to come out.

All of Justin Snaith, Brett Crawford, Candice Bass-Robinson, Greg Ennion and Andre Nel have runners in the East Cape Derby.

Ennion saddles Cedar Man, Crawford has St Vladimir, Andre Nel sends Sailing Lizard, Bass Robinson, Mercurana and Snaith Swift Surprise.

The local brigade is led by Gavin Smith, who has three horses, Grant Paddock with two and Alan Greeff, surprisingly, with just one runner – In a Perfect World.
