Horse of the Year and the runner best suited by the weight-for-age conditions of the race Legal Eagle drew wide at No 15 for the R5-million Sun Met celebrated with G.H. MUMM (Grade 1) over 2000m at Kenilworth on Saturday 27 January.

In spite of his wide barrier the Sean Tarry-trained star, who has had a picture-perfect preparation with victories in the Green Point Stakes and Queen’s Plate to his credit in Cape Town this summer, is currently joint favourite at 9-2 with Marinaresco in Betting World’s latest prices.
