Aldo Domeyer could be the jockey to follow at Kenilworth on Saturday particularly if – as expected – the extra sharpness he showed on his brief visit here in the Hong Kong close season in July is repeated.
The former Cape champion rides in seven of the eight races and his mounts include three Candice Bass-Robinson trained favourites – Turn It Up Harvey, Joy Maisha and Constable – as well as two second favourites.
Richard Fourie is also on three favourites – Queen Of Quiet, Sleeping Single, and Bayberry – and he rides for Justin Snaith in every one of the eight races. Bernard Fayd’Herbe also has a full card and, while Dynastic Light in race five is his only favourite, he also partners three second favourites.
Anton Marcus has taken five rides and, although none are favourite in the early betting, Proclaimer and Quintay are both second favourites. Quintay, trained by his nephew Adam, is the only non-Ridgemont-owned of the quintet.
