Krambambuli eyes the Gold Cup

Krambambuli, who ran one of the best races of his life when beaten only a third of a length into fourth in the Vodacom Durban July, will return to Greyville on July 29 to run in the R1.25m Grade 3 eLan Gold Cup (3200m) ay Greyville on July 29th.

Jonathan Snaith said: “Bernard Fayd’Herbe will ride Krambambuli and we will also run Captain Splendid (Greg Cheyne) in the race.”

Neither Justin Snaith nor Fayd’Herbe has yet won the Gold Cup but Cheyne was successful in the 2008 running on the Basil Marcus-trained Desert Links. Captain Splendid finished first in the SABC Gold Vase but was relegated to second for interference.

Snaith Racing is also planning an assault on the Champions Cup which it won with Futura two years ago and Jonathan said: “Bela-Bela will be nominated and owners Varsfontein will make a decision on whether she runs after seeing the draw. If she does run Anthony Delpech will again have the mount.

“Black Arthur and It’s My Turn (seventh and eighth in the July) will both run and Piere Strydom will again ride It’s My Turn while this Saturday Richard Fourie partners Sergeant Hardy in the Mercury Sprint and we think the horse has a decent chance.”

Fayd’Herbe, bidding for his fourth Mercury Sprint after Honour The Guest (2004), August Rush (2011) and What A Winter 12 months later, rides Talkothestars for Coenie de Beer. He finished second under top weight on the five-year-old in last month’s Post Merchants.
