ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER PERHAPS…but it’s another day and another race

Phantom Major Herholdt Kevin Barry Munger 2000 MR 80 0.25

On December 17 Phantom Major and Kevin Barry provided a nail biting finish to a 2000m MR 80 Handicap – with Kevin Barry closing on the front runner, Phantom Major, with every stride.

Kevin Barry didn’t quite make it – winning margin 0.25 lengths – but they meet again at Borrowdale Park on Sunday in a 1800m MR 90 Handicap.

There will, however, be seven other runners all capable of making their presence felt. In addition to Light The Way, Betula Uber, Boiling Point, Haga Haga and Simona, one also has to consider Leven Point, a three-time winner having his first start in Zimbabwe.

In his last outing in South Africa in April the six-year-old gelding was 5.25 lengths off No Worries over 2400m.  By Fort Wood, Leven Point won his races at Greyville from 1400m to 1800m.
