Edict Of Nantes on the July trail
21 Apr 2017 | By Michael Clower - goldcircle.co.za 

Investec Cape Derby winner Edict Of Nantes could start his build-up towards the R4.250m, Grade 1 Vodacom Durban July (2200m) at Greyville on July 1st R400,000, Grade 2 in the Daisy Guineas (1600m) at the same course on May 7.

Brett Crawford said: “I have nominated him for the race although it is not guaranteed that he will run. He has only had one grass gallop [in KZN] so he has a bit of work to do.”

The Mayfair Speculators colt has a terrible draw (18 out of 19) but only Table Bay and Janoobi are rated higher.

Crawford then intends running Edict Of Nantes in the R2m, Grade 1 Daily News (2000m) at Greyville on June 3rd, a race he won with Jackson five years ago. He has yet to win the July but Angus was only beaten a head by Ipi Tombe in 2002 and Futura was little more than half a length-third to Legislate three years ago.

However only two Cape Derby winners have gone on to take the July this century – Dynasty in 2003 and Big City Life six years later.
