Justin Snaith, who has won four of the 15 two-year-old races run in Cape Town this season – more than any other trainer, has the favourite in both the juvenile events at Durbanville on Saturday. And both horses are newcomers by Gimmethegreenlight, ridden by Richard Fourie and carrying the colours of Nic Jonsson.
Litchfield has been priced up at 28-10 for the opening Maiden Juvenile Plate ahead of the Glen Puller-trained Unbroken Promises who went close on New Year’s Eve but is badly drawn. Wayne Agrella comes down to ride this one.
Agrella also partners 8-1 shot Soft Day for the Puller stable in the fillies equivalent 35 minutes later but Snaith’s Golly Miss Golly is favourite at 28-10 with the Glen Kotzen newcomer I’m A Lady (Sandile Mbele) second favourite at 9-2.
