Well bred three-year-old Sweet Repeat did her future prospects as a broodmare no harm when she got off the mark at Kenilworth on Saturday.

Trained, like her famous brother Do It Again (pictured above), by Justin Snaith, the Lammerskraal Stud bred filly had shown her best form to date last time out when finishing third over 1600m, and Sweet Repeat duly built on that improved effort on Saturday.

Under Greg Cheyne, the cleverly named Sweet Repeat came with a late rattle down the inside of the Kenilworth course, which saw her get up in the shadow of the post and beat her better fancied stablemate Peut Etre Moi by three-parts of a length in Saturday’s Maiden Plate (F&M) over 1600m.

It was a gutsy win by Sweet Repeat, who was knocked about at the start of the race.

The second winner at Kenilworth on Saturday for European champion, and four time G1 winner, Twice Over, Sweet Repeat is a full-sister to dual G1 Vodacom Durban July winner and former South African Horse Of The Year Do It Again.

She is out of the tough racemare Sweet Virginia (by Casey Tibbs), whose six wins included scores in all of the G3 Winter Classic, G3 Winter Derby and G3 Final Fling Stakes. Sweet Virginia also ranks as the dam of dual Hong Kong G3 winner Horse Of Fortune (sired by Twice Over’s relative Stronghold).
