Last Winter to leave Kempton cold

PUBLISHED: 04 November 2019

Last Winter (Nkosi Hlophe)

Last Winter has his second race since finishing a half-length second to Oh Susanna in last year’s Sun Met in the Matchbook Floodlit Stakes over a distance just short of a mile and a half at Kempton today. The race is due off at 6.00pm South African time.

The six-year-old, now trained by Sir Michael Stoute, will be ridden for the first time by Louis Steward. Last Winter comes out equal second with John Gosden’s 2018 Ebor runner-up Weekender on adjusted ratings. The William Haggas-trained Young Rascal is 3lb clear top.

Candice Bass-Robinson reports that Russet Air, winner of the 1 000m Pinnacle at Kenilworth six days ago, will run next in the WSB Cape Merchants on November 23.
