Tevez, Harry Lime to fight out Pinnacle

Based on ratings there are not too many challengers for top honours but on form Harry Lime must have a decent chance.

Tevez looks hard to beat in Race 5 at Kenilworth today, as long as he can repeat his last run. The six-year-old son of Caesour lines up in a Pinnacle Stakes over 1000m and is handicapped to give this field a hiding.

Based on merit ratings he is between 5kg and 12.5kg better handicapped than any of his opposition but has not raced since finishing a 0.45-length fourth behind Gulf Storm in the Grade 1 Cape Flying Championship over this course and distance in January.

It is hard to go against him but unfortunately he has not won a race since March last year and as he heads towards seven-years-old, the Mike Bass-trained runner might well be finding age catching up with him.

Aldo Domeyer has ridden him in his last four starts and takes the ride again.

Based on ratings there are not too many challengers for top honours but on form Harry Lime must have a decent chance. The Justin Snaith-trained runner finished 3.75 lengths behind Tevez in the Cape Flying Championship where they met at level weights. However, Tevez has to give the four-year-old son of Var 3kg under the race conditions and a further 2.5kg which will be claimed by apprentice Lyle Hewitson.

That 5.5kg swing could turn the race in favour of Harry Lime but it could be very close indeed.
