Some medicines come with a health warning and perhaps one should be issued for White River, a runner in Saturday’s R1m Forus Cape Guineas at Kenilworth. His opponents should be warned: "might bite". In the recent Selangor Cup, White River tried to bite Rocket Countdown on his rear quarters as Candice Bass-Robinson’s three-year-old got the better of him in the closing stages. White River — a member of Brett Crawford’s powerful stable — has a clear chance of taking top honours in Saturday’s grade1 race particularly as the favourite Tap O’North is drawn close to the nearby highway. The majority of the big stables are represented in this important race with this season’s leading trainer Justin Snaith sending out a trio of runners headed by Do It Again who has found support in the ante-post market.
