Kenilworth hosted a ten race card on Tuesday, with racing taking part in unseasonably fine weather.
Richard Fourie took home riding honours for the mid-week meeting, with Fourie booting home a trio of winners.

Fourie’s treble included the first race which went the way of the Glen Kotzen trained Lanza. The latter, a son of Elusive Fort, did well to win the maiden juvenile plate, after the race was delayed when Larry Jack dislodged rider Grant Behr and galloped free, only to be scratched later on.

Another runner, Circuit The Sun, was withdrawn from the first after becoming fractious in the stalls. Yet another winner for his breeder, and part-owner, Peter de Beyer, Lanza had been second previously when beaten by atrocious conditions and older rival Quarllo.

Fourie went onto claim victory in races nine and ten with the classy Nordic Breeze and Fire Walker respectively. The Normandy Stud bred, and part-owned, Nordic Breeze had far too much class for her 11 rivals, and, despite lugging 61.5kgs, stormed home to record her fifth career win for Saturday’s July winning trainer Justin Snaith.

The well bred Deepston did well to win Tuesday’s fifth race, a maiden over 1400m, for Vaughan Marshall and MJ Byleveld, with the 2yo Var gelding returning from his hard fought long neck win with a mouth injury.
Owned by his breeders Alec and Gillian Foster, Deepston is the fourth winner, from four runners, for his increasingly successful dam Wintersweet. A daughter of Western Winter, who scored her only win over 1000m, Wintersweet made headlines early this season when sons Tap O’ Noth and Strathdon won the G1 Forus Cape Guineas and G3 Mahala TV Cape Summer Stayers Handicap on the same day.

One of the shocks of the day came when the much touted Juniper Spring, an own sister to Snowdance, could only manage third, beaten a neck by the 12-1 shot Durty Nelly, despite starting the prohibitive 7-20 favourite.

The regally bred Juniper Spring was just run out of it close home, with Durty Nelly flying up late to give jockey Bernard Fayd’Herbe the first of two winners on the card (Fayd’Herbe went on to land seventh race aboard the Andre Nel trained Bell Jar).

Favourite backers had to wait until the tenth and final race before the first tote favourite obliged, with the blinkered Fire Walker coming home to score a head victory for Glen Puller
