Dean Kannemeyer has entered Khaya Stables’ exciting unbeaten 4yo Last Winter, who will open his programme in the Premier Trophy on 16 December, a day on which the Cape Guineas takes pride of place.

Dean also has Fieldspring Byerley Turk winner Mambo Mime, who came back from an injury enforced lay-off to win his last start in style. He is likely to head via the Peninsula Handicap route on L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate day.

“The race is now run at pure weight-for-age. So there will be no concessions. But our duo are classy and I believe will warrant their places in this great race. One needs an element of good fortune in these final eight weeks. But we are on track for now,” said Dean.
