With Colonial Girl (2000) and In Writing (2012) past Kannemeyer winners of the arduous marathon, Dean will be keen to add a third trophy with Cape Speed and Mr Winsome set to carry the DKR flag.

The Gold Cup is on day 2 of the inaugural Festival Of Racing, which will be held at Greyville on Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July.

The Festival, which begins with social events like the Gala Dinner on the Thursday and Golf Day on the Friday, will include a variety of entertainment on both race days to give the occasion an incredible festive atmosphere.
