J&B MET (Grade 1)
Kenilworth, Turf, 2000m
2 February 2013

Martial Eagle scored a hard-fought victory in the R2.5-million J&B Met (Grade 1) over 2000m at Kenilworth on Saturday.

The early pace was not overly quick and Piere Strydom aboard Pomodoro decided to speed up the tempo after about 800m and sent his mount to the front from Hill Fifty Four and Martial Eagle. Jackson and Slumdogmillionaire were well placed while stablemates Bravura and King of Pain were at the rear.

Pomodoro led into the straight but was soon challenged by Hill Fifty Four with Martial Eagle, Beach Beauty and Jackson in pursuit as Slumdogmillionaire quickly faded from contention.

Hill Fifth Four soon took Pomodoro’s measure but Martial Eagle now ranged alongside and the two went head to head for the line. Martial Eagle had the edge and kept going under jockey Aldo Domeyer to ward off a gallant Hill Fifty Four by a long neck. Beach Beauty edged Pomodoro out of third place, while Jackson finished fifth, 4.35 lengths behind the winner, with Tribal Dance sixth.

Martial Eagle, owned by prominent Cape owner Sabine Plattner, gave trainer Yogas Govender his first win from his first runner in the J&B Met.
