Do It Again back again to de­fend Queen’s Plate ti­tle

The Citizen (KZN) - - Racing Express -

Even though only 10 run­ners were nom­i­nated for the L’Or­marins Queen’s Plate at Ke­nil­worth on 11 Jan­uary, it still prom­ises to be the race of the sea­son.

De­fend­ing cham­pion Do It Again is back again and looks cer­tain to put a flat Green Point Stakes ef­fort be­hind him.

Trainer Justin Snaith has also nom­i­nated Crown Tow­ers, who ap­pears a likely pace maker.

Mike de Kock fields two big guns in 2019 run­ner-up So­qrat and the highly ex­cit­ing Hawwaam, who has been priced up favourite in the ante-post mar­ket.

There will also be plenty of at­ten­tion fo­cused on Vardy. Adam Mar­cus’ charge has won im­pres­sively at Grade 3 and Grade 2 level in his last two starts and looks a fu­ture Grade 1 win­ner if ever there was one.

Rainbow Bridge is an­other not to be taken lightly.

Sup­ple­men­tary en­tries will be ac­cepted up to 11h00 on Fri­day 3 Jan­uary.

Dec­la­ra­tions are due by 11h00 on Mon­day 6 Jan­uary.
