After their Guineas wins they were rated

Soqrat MR 118
National Park 117


SOQ was raised to 124 after the Queen`s, but i don`t think there is much between them?

IMO Soqrat, competed against the best Milers in the Country and would win a match race. I believe everything played into National Park's hands last time out against the two De Kock horses that were badly drawn and in need of the run.

NP is a good horse but I do not think can compete against Soqraat.

Infact willing to put my Tom again on Hawaam if they line again.

I think your heads have been turned by the Blue & White colours :)

IMO NP has been by far the most impressive 3yo

Hope they meet in the Classic

I like the David slays Goliath stories - National Park for me. Great to see the foreign invasion halted albeit temporarily, one for the (smaller) guys. Takes guts to raid from a backwater and enter the bright lights.

Bob, I am going for Soqrat due to his run in the Queens Plate beating older horses like Rainbow Bridge, Legal Eagle. NP is a great horse but hasn't taken on the top older horses. I wouldn't be surprised if One World and Twist of Fate are also stronger than the Gauteng horses.

As OTA says it is great to see a smaller owner and trainer taking on and beating the big boys. Hope they take on each other soon.

Sentiment aside, I'm also in the Soqrat camp, for the reasons Shrek mentioned - big difference imo beating proper proven horses at WFA and beating an up and coming 3 yr old who had plenty of excuses

The better horse does not always win and not saying National Park is not the better horse so i think the race will not suit Soqrat as much as it should suit NP
Either Khumalo or Strydom to take the ride

National Park was super impressive last time out, but will have to go with Soqrat for that run in the QP, it was billed the race of the century after all.
