Kotzen looking strong

After a couple of runner-up slots to fair sorts in Vikram and Elusive Victor, this Ideal World colt appeared one of the better bets on Sun Met day.

READY TO WIN. Pack Leader has been declared t and well for tomorrow’s Grade 2 World Sports Be ing 1900 at Greyville by trainer Glen Kotzen and looks the runner they will all have to beat.

Glen Kotzen looks to be the trainer to follow at Kenilworth tomorrow, and perhaps pick of his bunch is Cat Daddy in Race 4, a Maiden Plate over 1400m.

After a couple of runner-up slots to fair sorts in Vikram and Elusive Victor, this Ideal World colt appeared one of the better bets on Sun Met day.

But he was hopelessly baulked when starting his run about 300m out, and effectively not persevered with afterwards, so that effort can be safely ignored.

From a good draw, and with Bernard Fayd’Herbe restored to the saddle, there should no mistakes this time.

Given some luck in running, of course, as he does tend to come from off the pace. Another Kotzen inmate to appeal is lightly raced filly Snapscan in Race 6, a FM 80 Handicap over 1600m.

She got going too late in her post-maiden appearance and is surely now looking for the turn and the extra ground she gets in this race.

Ace jockey Richard Fourie takes the ride, and she should represent Eachway value in what appears a competitive line up.

It’s a similar story in Race 2, where Gold Pact stands out in a moderate Maiden Plate over 1000m.

This gelding made huge improvement second time out to just be touched off .
