One of the most important events in South African horse racing takes place on Saturday, as a top-class field takes part in the 2022 L'Ormarins Queen's Plate.

A final field of 11 was confirmed for Saturday's main event at Kenilworth and the draw has been made. Here are the latest odds for this year's Queen's Plate and a look through the entries.

Topping the betting we find Eric Sands' stalwart Rainbow Bridge, who has placed in all of the last three runnings of the Queen's Plate. Rivalling Sands' seven-year-old for favouritism is last year's leading three-year-old Linebacker, who was narrowly beaten in last year's Durban July.

Kommetdieding got the better of Linebacker that day and the two will renew rivalries in the Queen's Plate. Jet Dark hold off Rainbow Bridge to win this Grade One 12 months ago and Justin Snaith's star returns to defend his crown.

Seeking The Stars upset Rainbow Bridge, Linebacker and Jet Dark to win the Green Point Stakes on his reappearance, and he'll step up into Grade One company. Warrior looked impressive when beating Kommetdieding in the Cape Mile in November, and he'll garner some support in the build-up to Saturday's main event.

Muzi Yeni rides After The Rain for Gareth van Zyl. Four three-year-olds rounds off the betting, with Pomp And Power, Good Traveller, Trip Of Fortune and Pacaya representing the younger brigade.
