The order of runners at the top of the Gauteng Summer Cup log remains unchanged, but there have been a few changes to some of the other hopefuls after last weekend’s racing.

Johannesburg’s premier horse race, a Grade 1 event over 2000m on the Turffontein Standside track, will be run on Saturday 27 November.

Got The Greenlight remains at the top of the log despite only managing third place in Sunday’s Grade 2 Joburg Spring Challenge over 1450m at Turffontein.

After his second place behind MK’s Pride in the Spring Challenge, Bingwa has moved from 13th to 10th place on the top-20 log, while both Expressfromtheus and Tierra Del Fuego, both unplaced in the race, have dropped four places each, into 13th and 17th respectively.

There have also been some adjustments to the alphabetical list.

The maximum field size is 20.

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. – Phumelela
