For us though, the action was at Kenilworth!

Sunday might've been a bit dull if it weren't for the "second" at Kenilworth. No World Cup, no Super Fifteen, the Slipper was behind us… Mind you, there was the little matter of a "derby" at Anfield.

For us though, the action was at Kenilworth, particularly as we knew what Mike Bass thought of his Visionaire colt, Jet Air. And especially when we'd heard what Chris Snaith had to say about their imported first-timer by More Than Ready. Snaith Snr. doesn't label them lightly, so when he says they "think the world of this colt", sit up and take notice.

In the event, all Grant van Niekerk had to do in steering Jet Air, was exactly that. As well as taking the odd glance behind him to see what might be coming. He needn't have worried; so now Jet Air's on his way to Durban for the big Winter season.

There'll be more than a few Visionaires waiting for him here. Already, he's had two other emphatic winners in this neighbourhood: Royal Pleasure by 6.75 and Lala by four-and-three-quarters.

It's been a while since we felt this way about a first crop. Back to the days of National Emblem and Fard. And before that, Northern Guest.
