Form run from Edict of Nantes

Rain could have impact on fitness of Vaal runners.

Last weekend I was in Cape Town where I rode Edict Of Nantes in the Green Point Stakes.  Although we would have liked to have won, we did finish second to Legal Eagle who was hard to beat at the weights. With Captain America just 0.50 lengths behind us as was the case last time, Edict Of Nantes ran to form.
