It comes as no surprise to see Got The Greenlight, Malmoos and War Of Athena hold the top three spots respectively on the first log for the Grade 1 Gauteng Summer Cup to be run over 2000m at Turffontein on Saturday 27 November.

Joe Soma-trained Got The Greenlight is a winner of five Grade 1 races and is the highest rated runner in the field so far. Malmoos and War Of Athena are the respective winners of last season’s SA Triple Crown and Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara.

First entries for the R1-million race closed on Wednesday last week and 46 runners have been nominated.

The final field will have a maximum of 20 runners.

Second entries close at 11am on Monday 1 November, and final entries at 11am on Monday 15 November – after which the weights will be posted.

Declarations must be in by 11am on Tuesday 16 November. – Phumelela
