Van Niekerk to have a good day

PUBLISHED: 01 August 2019

Grant van Niekerk is going to have a good day on his return to Kenilworth on Saturday if the early-price bookmakers have got it right.

Last year’s Sun Met-winning jockey numbers five favourites among his seven rides – Tambora and Sleeping Single for Justin Snaith, Doppio Oro and Machiavelli for Candice Bass-Robinson and Larentina for Eric Sands.

Luke Ferraris also has a strong hand with some strongly fancied mounts for Snaith including odds-on shot Winter Is Over and favourites Love Happens and Alsflamingbeauty.
