   Heavy Metal, who is a relative of the day’s G1 Golden Slipper heroine For the Lads (SAf) (Trippi), arrived at South Africa’s prestigious contest having already registered a shock win at the highest level when defying odds of 40-1 in the G1 Champions Challenge at Turffontein Apr. 27. Subsequently adding to his tally in that track’s Pinnacle S. over a mile May 18, the bay was runner-up in the G3 Jubilee H. back there last time June 9 and stepped up again to provide his owner and trainer with back-to-back renewals. Held up early by S’Manga Khumalo, he was forced towards the back of the field as the inevitable jostling for position up ahead had its ripple effect. Sticking to the inner and shrugging off a knock at the top of the stretch, he found room as the field fanned across the track and ground his way to the lead with 100 yards remaining before toughing it out in game fashion.
