Cape Met 2022 Betting Tips

The field has some very strong and prestigious runners, including the 2021 Durban July winner Kommetdieding. Linebacker, who finished 2nd behind Kommetdieding in the July looks to be some value as the odds have drifted out. Rainbow Bridge is the defending Cape Met 2021 winner, and was 2nd favourite but will not be running in the final field. Rounding out the field is Do It Again hasn’t seen to much action is 2022, but is a worthy longshot contender at 17.00. Our predictions : 1st Kommetdieding, 2nd Linebacker, 3rd Do it Again.
