Pleasedtomeetyou to take on rivals

Top Of The Class LK

The highly regarded Pleasedtomeetyou will face only five rivals in the Sophomore Sprint at Durbanville on Saturday.


The Justin Snaith-trained dual winner Clouded Hill (Richard Fourie) is the highest-rated in the field, 1.5kg above the Andre Nel runner, but he has to give 2kg to Bernard Fayd’Herbe’s mount.

Glen Kotzen’s Lanza (Ryan Munger) and the Greg Ennion-trained Elusive Trader (Corne Orffer) also have to concede 2kg as they have won more than once.

Vaughan Marshall has elected to run Top Of The Class (M.J. Byleveld), who ran creditably in the Gold Medallion at Scottsville, in preference to Allan Robertson fourth Canukeepitsecret. Ennion, as expected, makes up the field with his second runner Sailor Sam (Donovan Dillon).

The three-year-old Listed race has been won by horses of the calibre of What A Winter and Tevez in the past but three seasons ago it was switched to January because of the small fields. The numbers increased only marginally and the race tended to be swamped by other features at the height of the Cape season, hence presumably the move back to nearer the traditional date.
