MAJMU, Louis The King and Legislate head a star-studded entry for the R2.5 millionGrade 1 J&B Met over 2000m at Kenilworth on Saturday 31 January.
Champions Cup winner and Durban July third Futura is one of three entries for Brett Crawford, who sent out Angus to win the Met in 2003. He has also entered last year’s Lanzerac Ready To Run winner Captain America and De Kock, who won the Selangor Cup in November last year.
Mike de Kock’s decision to enter Majmu is surely a measure of his confidence in this winner of Saturday’s Gr 1 Avontuur Estate Cape Fillies Guineas.
There is a first supplementary entry stage on 17 December and a second one on 12 January.
It is a condition of acceptance that all runners take part in public gallops at Kenilworth on 22 January although a horse “stabled out of province” on the day of the gallops may be allowed to work at a race meeting elsewhere before that date provided the gallop is filmed for screening on 22 January.
