Edict Of Nantes on the July trail

 Apr 20 2017

Investec Cape Derby winner Edict Of Nantes could start his build-up towards the Vodacom Durban July in the Daisy Guineas at Greyville 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) in the R600 000 Grade 2 but only Table Bay and Janoobi are rated higher.

Crawford then intends running Edict Of Nantes in the Daily News, 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.
