J&B MET (Grade 1)

Kenilworth, Turf, 2000m

28 January 2012

So far so good for the 2012 J&B Met. The Summerhill graduates, Igugu and Smanjemanje, have slots 7 and 9 at the barrier. As we see the race now, it’s a contest between Igugu and Gimmethegreenlight, The Apache and Smanjemanje (no sentiment involved!) though we should remind ourselves that one of our two previous Met winners, Angus had the 16 draw.

Let us have your thoughts. Ours are purely superficial (and emotional at this stage).
