Kenilworth favourite Kommetdieding to race for historic Durban July- Cape Met double

The draw ceremony at Kenilworth Racecourse confirmed the final field of 11 runners for the 2022 Cape Town Met, with a prize of R2 million presented by World Sports Betting. Among the contenders is Kommetdieding, the surprising winner of the 2021 Durban July. With jockey Gavin Lerena, Kommetdieding aims to make history by winning the Cape Town Met and completing a consecutive Durban July-Cape Met double. Only a few horses, such as Politician, London News, and Pocket Power, have achieved this feat in the past. The last horse to do so was Igugu in 2012, trained by Mike de Kock.

Trainer Justin Snaith, a multiple South African Champion Trainer, has four entries in the race. He recently gained attention at Kenilworth Racecourse when his horse Jet Dark won the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate for the second consecutive year. Alongside Jet Dark, Snaith will have Do It Again, Hoedspruit, and Double Superlative competing in the Cape Town Met.

The complete field of 11 runners consists of Do It Again, Cirillo, Rockin’ Ringo, Jet Dark, Kommetdieding, Linebacker, Hoedspruit, Second Base, Puerto Manzano (ARG), Marina, and Double Superlative.
